Dean did a fantastic job - we were worried that people would not get up and dance, but he did not just play an 'already prepared' playlist which you hear at every wedding. He worked with the crowd by watching to see what they were enjoying and adapted the music to suit the evening. It turned out that most people were on the dance floor and all had a great time. The music is what can really make or break the atmosphere at a wedding - Dean did a wonderful job at making the music reflect what atmosphere we were hoping for. He met with us before the date to go over some ideas - this was great for us as we are both not very good with music and band names. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Thank you so much for your lovely review Alessia. It was great to work with you!
Dean Downes was so amazing, from the day we contacted up until the wedding. He will provide you with as much or as little assistance as you would like when choosing music. We were very set on playing mostly the songs we wanted and he delivered this amazingly, as well as filling the rest of our wedding with similar style songs.
He coordinated with our MC (who was my uncle) on the day to ensure everything went perfect. Dean co-ordinated prior to the wedding day with the venue to ensure they had everything he needed to set up. Our guests danced all night and commented on how good he was. Thanks so much Dean we will be sure to use you for our next celebration.
Hi Nicola, your review is so lovely, thank you so much
Would recommend Dean to absolutely anyone for anything! he got back to me straight away and was extremely affordable compared to everyone else. he isn't your 'karaoke machine' type DJ either. All music was perfectly played and really well mixed into each song at the end. Everyone commented on how good he was and all had a great night. My MC got along with him really well too. He even played specific music that I wanted and supplied to him on a USB stick. Very helpful, easy to deal with, has great tips and ideas to help you along the way and is always in contact with you. So glad we went with him and not anyone else!
They were absolutely fantastic. Very thoughtful with the age group of the guests and we had a good conversation beforehand about music during the meal and after to get people dancing. They were good about announcing people to make sure it flowed smoothly. They made some suggestions that ended up being perfect. I couldn't fault them, they were fantastic!
Dean's experience, professionalism and guidance ensured we had nothing to worry about entertainment-wise. He was always available to answer any questions, offered suggestions and advice on musical choices and was well priced. Dean understood the guests and venue and created a wonderful ambiance during meals and party atmosphere after.
Dean was absolutely fantastic. He came to our house before the wedding day and had heaps of ideas - we thought we knew what we wanted but he had some great additional suggestions. He was fully ready to go on the day, and was setup as agreed. We wanted a night of dancing - our request was for as many people on the dance floor as possible, and he made that happen. Would highly recommend Dean.
Dean from ACT Selectsounds was absolutely fantastic! He made some really great suggestions, confirmed all our choices in the days leading up to the wedding and played a fantastic mix of music from the 60's through to now and had everyone up dancing. All our guests raved about the music, even the oldies were pleased. We would highly recommend ACT Selectsounds to anyone and would use them again for other functions.
We chose ACT Select Sounds Mobile Music from a Canberra Wedding guide and it was an awesome choice. Dean the owner is very co-operative and professional. The selection of music was fantastic and requests were readily available. The guests at our wedding have only raved about the music. We have no hesitation in recommending or using ACT selectsounds Mobile Music in the future.
We can't say enough good enough things about ACT Select Sound. Dean was excellent in organising the meeting with our DJ. Andrew was awesome on the night, he gave us some really great suggestions when it came to picking the music and he let us have as much or as little control over the music as we wanted. We both love music and one of our missions for the night was to have the dance floor full as much of the night as possible and just have a great night and Andrew ensured that this happened. Following the wedding we have had multiple comments on how good the music was and how well all the different songs were mixed. Thankyou ACT Select Sound, you were awesome and would highly reccommend you to everyone.
Dean did a fabulous job with the music for our reception. He played a great mix of chilled out dinner music, then had everyone up dancing (we could hardly move because the dancefloor was so packed at times!). He has a broad range of music and was very flexible and easy to work with in the lead up to the wedding. After all the stress of planning the wedding it was great to relax and have fun on the night. We'd highly recommend him.
ACT Select Sounds came highly recommended from The Lobby and it was very clear why they highly recommended them on the night and also the lead up to the day. Everything was so organised and in the lead up to the event Dean of ACT Select Sounds had such good advice on what songs to do when and how the night should flow. We saw the music of the function as an important part and it was really nice to feel so assured that it was going to be of a high standard and run smoothly.
