The Deer Johns are very skilled at bringing corporate functions, weddings, and parties to life, at such venues as the Convention Centre, Adelaide Oval, The Hilton, The Crowne Plaza, The German Club, and even Twisting by the pool at the Next Generation Gym. We have a large repertoire at our disposal, and can generally accommodate most requests (given notice). We are able to set the tone for the night; if you want a laid-back soiree with some smooth cocktail music to ease into the night, we can settle into the background with some crooning music from Van Morrison or Frank Sinatra with double bass and soft keys or piano accordian. How about some Bublé with your bubbles?
When it’s time to party, we can ramp up the tempo, and cross many genres and eras.
We have all production facilities available, including a full PA, cordless microphone for speeches, smoke machine, and projectors for displaying photo boards.
For weddings, we have worked with both the bride and groom if they wish to prepare and sing a song for their loved one. We can also prepare music for the bridal waltz, or prior to the reception during the service.
For testimonials, see below the repertoire list.

To Andrew, Jesse and Chris,
Words can not describe how thankful we are for everything you brought to our wedding. Your professional and relaxed approach, your ability to play the songs that we wanted exceptionally well, your presentation and efficiency on the day/night during a tight schedule was amazing. We had utter confidence in your ability and knew we wouldn’t have any issues with your performance. The music during the ceremony was beautiful and how quickly you were able to work with the other musicians on the day we had brought in was terrific and truly shows how skillful you all are. The music at night time was just what we wanted and got everyone up on the dance floor and having a blast. We have had so many comments about how great the music was and how much fun everyone had dancing. It was everything we wanted and more. It is true to say that as long as you have good music, food and wine everything will be amazing! You definitely made sure that this happened for us and we will be forever grateful. We have already recommended you to so many people and hope that when we book you again that your free.
