Perfect DJ!

Dean was an absolute blast at our wedding in August! He kept the party going until closing time at midnight... ON A TUESDAY! He mingled so well with my wedding party and at one point had to wait for our best man to come back to the dance floor! He was fun, engaging, and professional! He was able to do every single song perfectly for our ceremony and I would hire him again in a heart beat. Thank you Dean!

Hi! I'm Deano.It all started in 1995

I was a full-time college student and just freshly married myself. Living in Red Deer, Alberta, a friend of mine needed a ride to his gig. I sat back and watched his mastery come to life as he skillfully pressed those buttons on his tape cassette player.

I was hooked! Since then, I have had the distinct privilege of playing music at hundreds of events. I have owned several medium and large-sized entertainment venues over the years, working alongside top recording artists such as Tom Cochrane, Lonestar, and dozens of others.

My passion isn't only of the music; it is connecting with the people through the music.

More about me:

  • Proud father of 5 incredible young men!
  • Smitten Grandpa of 2 identical twin boys!
