Comprised of all top-notch musicians and a premier vocalist, Whitley Deputy & The B-Town Project have quickly become one of the area's go-to groups for private events. Their approach to music is simple, make it feel good! This approach to music combined with the superior quality of musicianship leaves audiences and guests blown away. Whitley works with a 5 piece band consisting of guitar/lead vocals, keyboard, bass, drums and saxophone. He has had up to 8 members when requested.
Whitley Deputy is acclaimed as one of the Lowcountry's top vocalists. He has opened for names such as Dickey Betts (from the Allman Bros.), Drivin' and Cryin' and even the great Leon Russel.

Whitley's band, The B-Town Project, is an extremely versatile group. They are proficient in numerous styles of music from jazz to reggae, from funk to blues, from rock to ballads. Their ability to entertain audiences of every kind is remarkable. They take performing at special events very seriously and take every necessary step in pleasing their clients. It's no wonder why they are so sought after. Simply put, they are amazing.
I absolutely loved working with Whitley Deputy. They arrived in plenty of time for setup. They also had a good plan for the unique setup we had. Their music was great and they played the music the bride and groom wanted, which wasn't the usual wedding music. Also, Whitley was an awesome "master of ceremonies". We had a unique situation with the toasts The band had a great attitude and was excited to be there. I would totally work with them again and I would love it. – Celebration Events
