Thank you Reggie and your fellow band mates for helping to make our wedding celebration absolutely nothing short of amazing .. everyone thoroughly enjoyed every minute of your entertainment and I just kept hearing all the wonderful feedback throughout the evening .... you guys just made Saturday Nov 5 The Best Day Ever

I would like to say that I really enjoyed the band while attending the City of Georgetown Employee Christmas party in Georgetown, SC. I've heard a few bands play in my lifetime and you all were Exceptionally the BEST I have ever heard. Wished I could have stayed longer to listen to all songs played. I look forward to the bands' entertainment again. Once again the band, Deaz-Guys, were a pleasure to listen to listen. I know for a fact that I would personally recommend you all.

Reggie and Crew,
Thank you so much for Saturday night! You have made the president of our board a believer in the power of a good band which I wasn't sure would be possible. He has pulled me aside at least 5 times since you finished playing to tell me that he had at least 25 of his friends came up to him to let him know that y'all were the best band they have ever seen. Multiple people have been requesting that we sign a permanent contract with you for all of our future galas. Thank you for an amazing night- my feet still hurt today from dancing!

Reggie and crew,
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for such an awesome job at our wedding! We had a great time and yall definitely had people who don't dance up on the dance floor... including my now husband! Thank you also for being so accommodating for his musical debut :) and letting our friend play our first dance song. The evening was everything we could have asked for.
Thank you so much again for making our night perfect!

I have not had the privilege of hearing this band in person, but plan to very soon. Mr. Reggie Deas is the only band member I professionally and personally know, but have heard great things about the other members. Deas is music. He knows how powerful it is and how it can heal the soul.
Looking forward to hearing some
Marley from DeasGuyz!
Thanks so much to Deas Guyz for making our daughters wedding the best wedding ever. Most of our guests were from Los Angles and Pittsburgh and Deas Guyz now have a new fan base from coast to coast !! Even the non dancers got up and danced all night. If I had to plan another wedding I would plan the date around Deas Guyz availability !! Thanks again !!
Charles and I come to Hilton Head whenever we are in need of a soulful fix. These guys (Deas Guyz) are phenomenal! This has to be the best kept secret in the south........Deas Guyz are the best in the land....unbelievable!
I wish you guys had been around in the 1969 timeline when I could have introduced you to Billy and Marilyn of the 5th Dimension?
Billy and Marilyn were introduced to me by Vernon Troupe who had worked for Ray Charles and was a good friend of mine.
I introduced to Billy a group called Destiny that he signed on a 5 year contract and from hearing you guys again at Harbor Town, your group would have been a far better choice!
If you could also come up with some good original songs you could still make it big if that is something you would consider?
No need to post this as I was just contemplating the past because I chose Real Estate instead of a Road Manager and I would likely have decided on Road Manager if I had your group with backing from Billy and Marilyn!
Well, I am a Deas Guyz fan for life. I love music and I love bands and I've heard a lot of them in my lifetime, but Deas Guyz are simply the best. I'll stand on top of Mt. Everest and tell the world. I'm working on having my own private party in Savannah. They know my husband and me as the Savannah two......We are followers until death do we part. We spend a lot of time in the Hilton Head area just following the band. Ha, ha. and I'm not a groupie....just know talent when I see it. Thank you Reggie and the Guyz for making my husband Charles' birthday one of the best. Our children from Maryland were absolutely impressed......and you did not disappoint. Can't wait to see you again soon. Your Savannah fans, Cynthia and Charles
Your band played at the company private party last night in Atlanta! Fabulous band so versatile! Truly enjoyed your renditions of all my favorites. Wonderful talented group!
Reggie and Crew,
An absolutely wonderful time last night for our New Years Celebration. It was so great to see everyone up on the dance floor. The selection of tunes for this night was outstanding. Cannot thank you enough for a fabulous evening. Looking forward to seeing you again.
We have more fun listenting to your group than anything on Hilton Head. We take all our firends and relatives that visit to your performances. I would like to know more about each of the band members.
We enjoyed you guys one night 6 years ago, that night my husband proposed to me on stage with you guys I will never forget that night a dream come true. We been Happily married now for 5 years thank God. Thank yall for the beautiful song you played that night for us (THESE ARMS OF MINE ) GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
Not a day goes by that I don’t smile with a great memory from Alee and Philip’s wedding and how much fun we had with your band. And everyday someone new tells me how great you guys were and how much fun they had!!!! We were so disappointed Spring Island rules kept the party from continuing but, you left them wanting more!!! I am sure you will get many requests from our NC friends if you guys ever want to venture up this way. We cannot thank you enough for making our daughter’s wedding day one we will all never forget. You guys are so talented and we cannot wait to come to the Jazz Corner sometime soon to hear you again!!!
All our best,
Tricia Johnson and the whole family!!!
We are thorough enjoying Deas Guyz in Hiltonhead, SC. Fantastic.
We were so happy with the music at our daughter’s wedding on November 10 at Long Cove. Our guests raved about you and you had so many people out on the dance floor. You guys are amazing. Thanks again for making the wedding so special.
Deas Guyz played for my daughter's wedding reception on December 1st, 2018 at the Dataw Island Clubhouse. We first heard them play at Motown Monday during the Beaufort Water Festival. At that moment, we knew they had to play for the wedding. The band was fantastic. Everyone loved the music they played. Reginald Deas is an amazing entertainer who captivates his audience. He had a great connection with the wedding party too, especially the groom! A great time was had by all. I received SO MANY compliments on their behalf.
Checking out some of your videos from past gigs. BEAUTIFUL job Guyz! I served in the Corps with Mr. Whittaker and considered him my friend. He was--and obviously still is--one of the finest musicians and people I've ever had the pleasure to know! Please tell him I said hello. Thank you all for the music, jq
Hello! My husband and friends will be at the Jazz Corner tonight (2/24/19) for another amazing performance. Unfortunately, I had to cancel as I was a patient of Hilton Head Hospital this weekend. If you can fit in my request, could you play your medley of "I Can't Help Myself" and "My Girl"? I will hopefully watch live streaming, if available. Thanks so much. See you next winter when we escape another Michigan winter. Jan
Deas-Guyz. Looking forward to your visit to Reynolds Lake Oconee in late March. We are telling all our neighbors here to make reservations if they want to hear a great band.
Reggie and all members. My wife and I have visited HHI for the past several years in both November and March. When we had the opportunity, we enjoyed your performances at the Community Park in HH and also once at The Jazz Corner. Unfortunately, in Dec '16 my wife had a debilitating fall and has also been diagnosed with a crappy form of Parkinsons. My wife is now a resident of a Long Term Nursing Home. I recently discovered that your music is available thru 'Spotify' on my phone. Generally we listen to your music for 30-45 mins each day and pretend that we are in HH at one of your concerts. My wife has always enjoyed music and particularly enjoys your music. We only have yours and The Beatles and Smokey Robinson on our 'Playlist'. Thank You
Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your performance at The Jazz Corner March 3/19 where my husband and I were there for your show and dinner. The BONUS was your concert at Harbour Town (March 24/19) where we were fortunate enough to hear/see you perform again.
We've been going to HHI for 13 yrs (since we retired, both teachers) and the HIGHLIGHT is always seeing you perform at The Jazz Corner, and, the last three years at Harbour Town. As soon as we know we have rented a place for Feb-March, I book your show and dinner at the J.C. As I said, the BONUS is again in March at H.T.
I cannot express enough the utter JOY I get in your performances. And, for that, I THANK YOU. Hope to see you in 2020.
Saw Deas Guys last night at Stone Creek in Ocala. Absolutely outstanding! The musicality of each band member is precise and they meld to bring a very polished, tight and wonderful sound. I was surprised today to find that this group is primarily in residence on Sundays on HHI and have day jobs. They appeared and sounded to us to be a fulltime touring band! We hope to see "Youz" Guys again!
Are You Guys coming To PAWLEYS This summer?
There are NO words to describe how incredible this band is! I've heard about them & watched them at area events for years ...when it came time to book a band for my son's wedding, they were our 1st & ONLY choice! Thankfully, the date worked & can I just say, it wouldn't have been half as good without them! The music, the love of their job & MOST of all, the amazing hearts these guys have! I wanted to do something special for our mother/son dance but I wanted Reggie to sing it instead of having a recording! OF COURSE, he ROCKED IT!!! I'm a Donny Osmond fan from way back & have always told my boys that our dance would be to 'Puppy Love'!!! While it's not really a song to be sung to your son on his wedding day, I just had to have a least a little bit of the song...Reggie sang it with love then went in to my other song (that was appropriate!), 'You'll be in my heart' from Tarzan! My son is a lifelong Disney fan so it HAD to be a good one! Well, it was SO good that the entire room of guests were swaying along with us & shining their cellphone lights just like a concert setting! I've never seen that at a wedding before & I can't tell you how special it was!!! Reggie, you & the guys made our night perfect! Thank you & look for some Knoxville Lemon Cookies to show up in the future! Y'all are the BEST EVER!!!
We had the best time in the short time we were in Hilton head to celebrate our 17th year wedding anniversary.We had planned this trip since last year.However as fate will have it ..Hurricane Dorian had other plans..We couldn't stop reminiscing about the Band and what an experience we had at Jazz Corner .It was worth the trip..Initially planned a 7 day trip but enjoyed the day and half we spent there..Looking forward to our next trip to hilton-head..And if you happen to be playing in the Atlanta Area..definitely will like to come see you Guys !!! All the Best..Manny & Tina Akintayo
We celebrated our 52nd wedding anniversary at your Jazz Corner performance on this past Sunday, 09/08/2019 and you very graciously recognized us on that occasion. Thanks very much! We had a great time and will be returning to the Jazz Corner on Sunday, 09/15/2019 to enjoy another show. I am wondering if, on this Sunday, you might perform one of my very favorite songs. It is a song that was written by Marvin Gaye back in 1976 and performed to perfection by FourPlay in 1994. The song's title is "After the Dance" and FourPlay recorded it live on their "An Evening of FourPlay" album. I would greatly appreciate it if you will perform FourPlay's arrangement of that song. Thanks.
BTW, I tried to learn to play the base guitar very late in life and have failed miserably. Tell you new base guitar player that I have a new Ibanez SR5005 5 String that has never been played sitting in the case in my basement, which he can acquire for under market value when he is ready to retire his current instrument (what looks like a SR505EZW or SR875). (:-)) LoL!!
Jazz Corner is booked for Sunday September 29, 2019 when the entire group of 8 will be in HHI. I went to your website and saw you are playing in Harbour Town on that same day. Can you tell me where in HT and at what time? We would all love to be able to see you but unfortunately JC is already sold out.
Thank you for a wonderful evening of entertainment. I hope they are paying you what you are worth.
Always love to see Martin and Deas-Guyz when we visit Hilton Head (six times a year).
Be safe guys. Thinking of you during this trying time. Hope you are all well.
Reggie has the best soul and blues voice around.! One heck of a nice guy, too. My wife (then fiancee) saw them on Folly Beach at the Sand Dollar in the late ‘90s and were blown away. We ‘stalked’ them every time we went to Folly and hired them for our wedding in north Georgia (in ‘01). We’re still going strong; glad you guys are! See them, people, you won’t be disappointed!! Hi Reggie!!
Patrick and Cali
Had a fabulous night at the Jazz Corner celebrating my husband's birthday with our friends. Listening to your music brought back so many beautiful memories of clubbing in NYC during the disco era. Could not have asked for a better night, fine music, excellent spirits, fantastic waiter and of course your SPECTACULAR BAND!
Again, thank you Reggie for asking me if I would like a drink. Very gentlemanly of you. But as replied, "no thank you". You said on you and I replied, "a lady knows when she had enough".
Will be back in December for another evening of listening to your music. Kudos to your band for performing a splendid performance.
Reggie & the entire DeasGuyz Crew!
What a delight your entire band are….thank you from every corner of our heart for you energy and passion in contributing to a perfect weekend for our guests. We are so grateful for you!
From our first email together ...to your final hug when leaving the reception ...your care, professionalism, love, and delight was always present.
Already looking forward to the next time.
We love you! Don & Doreen
Pat from Nova Scotia, Canada is such a fan of your performances that she's made myself and our older sister bigger fans...wait, that's not possible given her passion for your talent..I'm Lynn, Pat's sister...on July 30th, she will be 70 years young....and I mean "young". If you can possibly email a Happy Birthday message...well I'm not sure what could make her day more special! email@example.com...we love you guys and covid has kept us from seeing you at the Jazz Club and your amazing concert in Harbor Town. Thanks for the music. Lynn
You guys are great.
Hey Mr. Deas -- My wife and I will be at the Jazz Corner this coming Sunday (09/05/2021) and the following Sunday (09/12/2021). Our 54th wedding anniversary is on Thursday, 09/09/2021 and we were wondering which of the two shows will be best to note and celebrate our 54th anniversary with you.
Hi Reggie and all,
I am finally writing to let you know how much we enjoyed having you all play for Whitney and Jack’s party. You all made the night so much fun! Everyone has commented that you all were the best band! It was definitely worth the wait and Whitney got her wish of having you all for her wedding! I realized how much I have missed hearing Deas Guyz! Hopefully you will get back down to Pawleys when we’re there or we will have to make a trip to Hilton Head. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Hope to see you all again soon! Thanks for making July 31st such a special night!
