The Grateful Guitar is owned and managed by Daryl Brooke.  Daryl is a NY transplant and has dreamed of moving to Key West since his first visit in 1970. 

He has two master certifications from Berklee College of Music – one in Guitar, and the other in Music Production with ProTools.  He has also had the opportunity to study with guitar masters Mike Dowling and Woody Mann. 

Daryl is a seasoned musician, experienced in recording as well as live performance.  Most recently he played pedal steel guitar with County Line band in the NYC metropolitan area.  These days he really enjoys listening to and playing finger style acoustic guitar.

Besides playing guitar and making music, Daryl also brings with him a strong desire to collaborate and foster community exchange.

Daryl resides in Key West with his wife, Susanne, and their daughter Charlotte.
