Bill Derry Music offers a variety of music styles to choose from.  He primarily plays “Island Escape” music like Jimmy Buffett or Zac Brown but is also happy to play high energy rock and blues for dance or show or jazz standards.  Bill can perform all covers, all original music or a mix of both.  Additionally, Bill Derry can be booked as a solo or as a band.
