California Love! Deano played at our pre-wedding party in London. We had a mix of ages and international guests, and he did an awesome job of playing chill music in the beginning and getting the dance party in the evening. He definitely got a mix of younger and older people having a blast. Deano was very accommodating, professional and super fun. Would highly recommend for your next event! Bri & Timo March 2019
10/10 "Firstly, I must say that Deano is simply a great guy. He is friendly, easy to talk to and hard-working - not to mention an excellent DJ, of course. We had a mid-sized wedding in a village hall, but with the lights and the music, it was transformed both physically and in terms of the atmosphere. He had all of our guests on the dance floor, catering to a mixed-age crowd and not only did he succeed greatly in unifying everyone on the dancefloor but he also got all of us singing along to the songs. He has a remarkable attention to detail and flows with the crowd seamlessly. He really made our evening special and it was a pleasure to work with. We would recommend Deano as a DJ for any occasion and we will certainly be calling on him again when the occasion arises. 10/10 for service, for style and for sound." Luciano and Emma March 2019
How Good the Music was! Hi Dean just wanted to thank you for the music at mine and Chanel Abbie D'Agnese joint birthday party last night. Everybody I spoke to commented on how good the music was from the young 20 somethings right up to the 50 somethings. So thank you for keeping everyone happy and entertained. If it wasn’t for the music the party wouldn’t have been as good as it was. Thanks again. Thoroughly recommend you to anyone who wants to host a party. Ang x x March 2019
Your skill is knowing what to play and picking the right moment. Dean you were brilliant last night. I can’t thank you enough. The Party went so well. A wonderful time was had by all and that was mainly down to you and all your hard work which you make look so easy. So many of our friends have texted me to say what a great time they had. We all danced for hours (despite most of us being over 40!! Some like me well over 40). Your skill is knowing what to play and picking the right moment. So if anyone wants a fantastically talented DJ who really knows his stuff and how to ‘get the Party started’ just call Dean. You now seem like our personal friend as we’ve met at a few parties where you were the DJ. In fact if you’re not already booked we will certainly call on you to DJ our next planned Party in the Summer.
Kind regards Sue and Tony 1st December 2018
"Dean you were brilliant!" We got married on May 18th and Deano had been recommended to us. We wanted a party and that's exactly what we got and more.. He was brilliant! Lots of music, incredible sound able to go from genre to genre no one wanted to leave the dance floor. We would totally recommend him 1000%, he was most professional, friendly, organized created the absolute tone and vibe of the evening that we wanted. Everyone was up partying and no one wanted to leave. Thank you for making our wedding so great. Antonio & Robin 18th May 2018
"You absolutely must book "Dean for your DJ! No matter what the occasion is, you can be sure that Dean will make it a night to remember. I booked Dean for my 40th birthday party and the dance floor was packed the whole night. Dean is friendly, relaxed, professional and totally makes you feel at ease. I gave Dean an idea of the type of music I wanted and left the rest to him! The good old club classics took myself and all my friends back to our clubbing days and I truly wish I could do it all over again! Thoroughly recommend Dean for any party! Thanks Dean! Jo xx

Wow, what an amazing set, I gave Deano a vast playlist of rnb and he managed to play it all whilst keeping the oldies happy with a few throwbacks. Felt like we had know him forever such a nice guy. He made our wedding perfect and more. Thank you Deano I will recommend you to everyone. Charlene Bethanie Stevens (nee Clayton) Oct 2017
''Hello Dean, how're you? We just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for your amazing job at our wedding''
Hello Dean, how're you? We just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for your amazing job at our wedding. As you could see we all enjoyed all the music you played for us, and being both British and Spanish audiences, we'll guess that it wasn't an easy job for you, so we really appreciate all you efforts to include everyone! Also, Adam mentioned that you had a webpage where it would be helpful for you if we write a review? We can do it both in English and Spanish if that helps you. Please, let us know about it. Once again, thanks a lot! Sandra and Adam Mr and Mrs Carroll @ The Packford Hotel Woodford April 2017
"You did a great job"
I just wanted to send you an email expressing my gratitude to you for the work you put in to help make the game successful.What you had to do was not easy. I thought you did a great job in keeping the fans in the game. Bob Becker • Executive Vice President • VWSE Productions • October 2016
Massive thanks to Dean for an amazing night at our wedding reception. He played all the music we requested and more. Everyone had a great time and we couldn't recommend him enough. Will be using you again! Matt Robinson • October 2016
"He absolutely nailed it!"
Deano recently DJ’d our wedding reception and he absolutely nailed it! He was able to cater for a really diverse crowd and he kept the dance floor full until the very end of the night. His ability to read the crowd was amazing and every time you thought there was no way he could top the song he had just played, he pulled out another belter! He was also able to personalise parts of the set which made the night all the more special. So many people have made a special point of telling us how brilliant Deano was since the wedding. In fact, I’m pretty sure we will be seeing Deano again as some friends of ours who are getting married next year are already dead set on booking him! Best of all though, he is an absolutely top bloke and was a pleasure to deal with through the entire process..... We could not recommend him more highly! Sian & Dan Bowers • September 2016
"The success of the evening owed a lot to him"
Deano... a HUGE thank you from myself and Nick for DJ'ing at our wedding on Saturday. The dance floor was full all night long, and you kept on playing banger after banger!! It truly made the night. Everyone commented on how amazing you were, and how the night flowed! As you know... nobody wanted it to end!! Definitely recommend you... 5⭐️ performance. Holly Smith • July 2016
I would recommend Dean to anyone. He did everything we asked of him... and more. Dean catered for everyone and the success of the evening owed a lot to him. Nick Smith • July 2016
Thank you so much for your awesome tunes at Nick & Holly Smith's wedding in Prestbury and for continuing after hours for some of us party animals!!! Great DJ! Camilla Haworth • July 2016
"Another great lead DJ"
Thanks for yet another great lead DJ, Dean. Combined 18th, 21st and 50th all rolled into one. Fantastic crowd as well... All 200 of them! Cheers! David Horder • July 2016
"Everyone had a great time"
Great night Dean. Not just the music but all the little extra tweaks you did ... I saw them and much appreciated!!! Helen Hawes
Thanks so much for another fab night Stephanie Walton
Thank you so much for your amazing contribution to our event. From the latin beats at the beginning to get everyone in the mood to the amazing music that kept us all on the dance floor right up to the very end…..thank you, thank you, thank you We all had a fantastic time and the number of "thank you" messages I got yesterday all said the same. Without doubt, you played a huge part in making sure everyone had a great time, which they did. In addition, Dougie (who I did try to thank on the night but he was clearly 'in the zone') was amazing. It really did get everything off to a brilliant start so thank you for arranging that for us. It was a little frantic towards the end and I'm sorry I didn't get to say thank you and goodbye properly. I hope you got home OK and that yesterday wasn't too much of a struggle.... Many thanks again. Sinead Cuckow • "Rio 2016" Summer Ball • Sandown Racecourse • June 2016
"You did a fantastic job"
Deano... I wanted to say a big thank you for DJ'ing at our wedding. You did a fantastic job - the music was great, you read the crowd perfectly and I hardly ever left the dance floor. It was the best night! I now need another excuse for a party so I can ask you to play again!! Gini • Wedding Reception • June 2016
"You made the night"
Hey Dean... I've just got to drop you a note to say a huge Thank You for yesterday. You made the night, mate. Everyone is saying how the music was right on the money and made the event. You're a star, cheers!!! Dave & Anna Wilson • Wedding Reception • May 2016
"Friendly, professional service"
Finally got a chance to say thank you so much for providing the equipment. It was exactly what I wanted, worked perfectly and made the day run very smoothly. There's always a worry with technical equipment that something might go wrong, but I needn't have worried and seeing it all go as I'd planned was a great weight off my mind. Would definitely recommend you to others. I received very friendly, professional service from the start and was confident I'd made the right decision in choosing you as you understood my requirements exactly - the playlist was a hit (slightly tweaked from the one I sent you originally) and we danced non-stop till 1am.... Thanks again and best regards. Jess • May 2016
"What a party!"
Dean gauged the mood of our wedding celebration perfectly and the dance floor was packed all night. He arrived really early to set up and even helped us decorate the venue and calm our nerves! He was great fun to have around, gave us an idea of what times would work best for how the night should pan out - he had microphones for us to do speeches and then worked his magic! We can't recommend Dean highly enough - all of our guests commented on how great he was. The set-up - and Dean himself - was subtle (it was all about the music, and atmosphere, not the DJ) - if you want your feet to ache the next day - book Dean! Faye & Greg Bryant • Wedding Reception • February 2016
"Dean was tremendous!!!"
He was very professional and it was a pleasure to work with him. He played a combination of tunes that were most suited to our luxury store and clientele and definitely we will be using him again. All of the guests were dancing to the tunes he played and he certainly knew his audience and how to entertain them. Watches of Switzerland • Regents Street, London • Christmas Party • Dec 2015
"Great to work with"
Thank you so much for all your help with the party on Wednesday night. I heard you even helped to meet and greet the guests at reception. Thank you so much for that. It was a great success and everyone had a great time, especially me trying to teach everyone to do the “Candy” dance. You have such a vast selection of music which catered for all. You knew just what to play to get people dancing, even our CFO was on the dance floor. Thanks again Dean, it was great to work with you. Sandra • Pepsi Lipton Corporate Xmas Party • Sunborn Yacht Hotel • Dec 2015
"Deano made our wedding perfect"
Maybe being a close family friend or the simple fact that he knows how to get a party started! As soon as the music began we never stopped dancing, and when we were told that it was 1am, it felt like the party had only just begun! Every song got people more and more excited and in the mood to dance all night long... which we would have if it hadn't started to rain! We wish we could have danced until sunrise with Deano's tunes. He understood what kind of music we wanted and the mixed ages that he would be playing too. The thought and attention he put into creating a magical, romantic and perfect ceremony mix of songs was just unbelievable and everybody commented on how personal it was. And recommending 'Lola's Theme' for our entrance song was spot on and what an entrance we had! Still get goosebumps when we hear that song. It was just one of the best moments of our lives, you knew exactly what we would want and the party started right there! Thank you Deano... One of the kindest and most thoughtful men we have ever met. Thank you for making our day unforgettable. We cannot recommend him highly enough!! Jodie & Kelvin Taaffe • Wedding Reception • 2015
"Everyone had a great night"
When I was considering what DJ to hire for our wedding we had something of a challenge on our hands. So many of the people we were inviting to the wedding had either jobs in the events industry (particularly music) or were DJ’s themselves, so the pressure to get the music right was huge, aside from the fact that we wanted the perfect evening ourselves. My twin brother Neil Fearnley - who I adore - is a well-established DJ, having played in clubs like Pacha (London), Ministry of Sound, Bagleys, Garage City at Bar Rhumba to name a few. He’s played all over the world for some 30 years and I’ve spent my life heading to a club in town to dance the night away to his music. Another wedding guest was Ken Walker, one of Australia’s leading DJ’s who has released over 30 albums selling in excess of 400,000 units. He hosts and produces his own national radio show (as well as various international shows) and is a platinum selling artist. He’s supported artists such as Jay-Z, Missy Elliot, Martin Solveig, Bob Sinclair, Marc Ronson and Miguel Migs to name but a few. Paul Wahba, also invited to the wedding, would have been my own personal choice for a small party – I have had so many good nights out with him at the decks because his music taste aligns so beautifully with my own and he’s just incredibly good fun. And finally, there is our best man, housemate for numerous years and great friend, Daragh Ryan. He used to run a club night in London each month called Refresh which he DJ’d at, and we had many a fun night there and created lots of fond memories. So why didn’t I opt to use any of the above? Well, each is truly wonderful in their own right and they all offer different things, but all of them play a specific genre of music. What Dean offered was the potential to appeal to a really varied audience – in both music tastes and age. I wanted everyone to have a great time at our wedding, not just the party people we used to go clubbing with in our younger days. When I went to the BBC Worldwide Showcase gala dinner in 2014 I was enormously impressed at the DJ’s ability to get the entire ACC on the dancefloor – no mean feat. Not only was there the most diverse range of ages but everyone was from different countries and presumably had a vast array of tastes in music. Many of the people I was with that evening began the night telling me they were not going to dance that night, almost scoffing at the idea... an hour later, though, and everyone was on their feet and I lost count of how many people told me it was the best night out they’d had for years. I loved the music that night – the classics just kept on coming and, like everyone else, I had a fantastic evening. The DJ was Dean Mitchell - so he had to be the obvious choice when I was selecting a DJ for my wedding and I think it was the right one. I never doubted that decision and everyone had a great night – the cool crowd, all the children who came along, alongside my older relatives – everyone was happy. And that’s really all you want from a wedding party, so thank you very much Dean! Patricia Fearnley • Wedding Reception • 2015
"A roaring success"
Thank you so much for all your help with the party on Sunday night. I would say it was a roaring success and I appreciate your management of all the entertainment piece. Great fun and we have set the bar now… So let’s start planning next year soon. Thanks again Dean, it was great to work with you Karen • NFL After Party • 2015
"He gets the gig just right"
Dean Mitchell has been a part of the NFL's game week events in London since 2013. He has been everywhere from Regent Street to Wembley Stadium in support of our games. As a DJ, and most recently extending his services to private event planning, Dean is extremely knowledgable and professional. He is versatile - can read and adapt to a crowd of any demographic. Dean is serious about his craft and will research and go through a considerable amount of background work to make sure he gets the gig just right. Maria Gigante • NFL UK Events Director • 2015
"You are great!"
It was so nice to meet and work with you! You are great! I know that Jack Morton's Team and the main IBM clients loved you. Hope to work with you again in a very next future! Valérie de Angelis-Butel • Backstage Int'l, Monaco • 2015

Dean did a great job... The dance floor was packed all night - we even had to clear it for our first dance. Wedding Reception • 2015
"Dean was great!"
Just a quick note to let you know that all went well on Friday and Dean was great! He really read the audience, played some great music and kept the dance floor pretty busy all the way through to 1.00am. Thank you so much for an amazing Christmas party! Corporate Christmas Party • 2014
"He was brilliant!"
We got married in May and Deano had been recommended to us by a friend. We just wanted a party and that's exactly what we got... He was brilliant! We would totally recommend him. He was early, friendly, organised, 100% reliable and created the absolute tone of the evening that we wanted. Everyone was up partying and no one wanted to leave. Thank you so much. Jane • Wedding Reception • 2014
I just wanted to tell you that we thought all of the music at our wedding last weekend was absolutely superb. Thank you so much for being a key part of the best night of our lives. Gaynor & John • Wedding Reception • 2014
