If you are looking for the best DJ in the Des Moines area you have definitely come to the right place looking into Andy at Select Entertainment. His years of experience made our decision to work with him a no-brainer. He has literally done hundreds of weddings and has so many unique ideas to make your event one to remember. Our reception was a blast! We have had numerous guests comment on what a great time they had and that Andy’s energy really made the dance floor a hit! Five stars, two thumbs up, 10/10, you name it - they get the highest praise from us! More...

I have known Andy personally for about four years now through his volunteer work (another reason why we booked him... we love how much he helps the community). While I knew he would be good, I didn't know he would be as good as he was. He took control of the reception and hosted the perfect evening. From the moment we arrived at the reception we knew we were in good hands; Andy was there to greet us and go over the entrances in detail with our bridal party. From there, he did a fantastic job of getting the reception started. He is a captivating person who is able to get the attention of guests but direct the attention towards speeches, first dances, and welcomes. He made the whole transition seemless from dinner to dessert to dancing- there were no hiccups. Andy was incredibly attentive to the bride and groom; he was able to get us water, drinks, carried our dinners for us, and anticipated everything we could've needed the entire night. When I wanted to change certain things during the evening he was able to go with our requests. I have always dreamed of a wedding reception with tons of dancing, Andy made that happen. Our dance floor was packed and filled with energy until we ended the night. I couldn't write enough great things about Andy (DJ Cubbie). I would book him again in a heartbeat, and will be sure to recommend him to every other bride. Thanks for making our night SO memorable... we love you guys! More...

If anyone is looking for a DJ for an upcoming wedding Andy Powell at Select Entertainment is the man. He provides the whole package from audio for your ceremony, to serving as the MC to keep everything on schedule and then cranking up the fun to make sure that everyone has a great time. He had the dance floor packed the whole night up until time to turn out the lights. Thank you Andy for making the party so much fun. More...

If you are looking for an absolutely amazing experience with the a DJ, look no further. Andy with select entertainment was amazing. Not only did he play appropriate music, he was also my daughters officiant. We had more compliments on his service all night long and even into the next week about Andy helping them carry their food, Get them a drink, guide them to the restroom, cleaned off the tables, and kept the night going with all the events my daughter had requested. Andy was way more than a DJ as he made the night go smooth, kept this mom calm, and went way above and beyond. My understanding is that this is not something he did for just our daughter but he does for everyone. You will never be disappointed with his services. More...

Bret officiated our small ceremony and he DJ’d our reception. He took so much stress off of coming up with vows and planning our list of music. My husband has quite a bit of social anxiety and Bret was so helpful and down-to-Earth that my husband had a much easier time than both of us had expected, he actually enjoyed himself immensely!

I sent Bret several emails throughout the last few months prior to the wedding and he always responded in a timely manner as well as giving detailed information when necessary. He was flexible when it came to meeting to go over details of the ceremony and reception, and he drove from Ankeny to Marshalltown for the rehearsal.

He told us several times ‘whatever you want, this is YOUR special day’ and he really lived up to that! We wanted a very short and simple ceremony and he made that very painless! We were very thrilled to find a company that had officiants because that was a major concern for us.

I am more than happy to leave this review because the positive reviews of Select Entertainment are the reason we decided to go with them! I would recommend Bret and Select Entertainment over and over again!

DJ Cubbie is THE BEST!! My now-husband’s rental tux pants had a broken clasp on the side and his pants would not stay up! Cubbie literally gave him the suspenders off his back!

Bret Agard with Select Entertainment was amazing for our June 16, 2018 wedding. From our first meeting with him, we knew we'd made the right choice be choosing Select. He was friendly, got a few obscure songs for us, and was strict about not playing songs on our "do not play" list. He arrived early to set up and accommodated our last-minute request to have a handheld mic at the ceremony for our bridesmaids and groomsmen to use when they did some readings. Bret was professional, played all of our requests, and made the night go smoothly. We told him he could start shutting down when guests really thinned out, and at that time, he told us that he had a family member in the ER since 7 pm that night! If I'd known, I'd have told him to go home, but he did not even mention this to us and continued to DJ our wedding all night. Talk about someone dedicated to the profession! I cannot thank him enough for his sacrifice and service to us. Look no further than Bret at Select for your DJing needs. He will deliver! More...

I hired Andy as my DJ after attending a wedding he DJ'd for. Both occasions he did a phenomenal job! He provided the sound for my ceremony & my reception. He is extremely knowledgeable on how events should flow, and he made great suggestions for activities & songs that I was unsure about. Since he DJ'd at two weddings I've attended, I can say he knows exactly what type of music to play depending on the crowd. The atmosphere he provided was very different, and both were perfect for each event. I definitely recommend hiring him for your wedding! More...

Andy did an amazing job at our wedding this past weekend. He sat down with us weeks before the event to get to know us and our music likes and dislikes. His set up is professional and looks great. He takes the time to make sure everyone's name is pronounced correctly during the grand entrance and confirms all the little details are covered for the entire day. During dinner he used the time to make sure my husband and I had full drinks and were enjoying the music. He kept me informed of requests and kept the dance moving the entire night. I loved every song played. I had an amazing night and the dance floor was crowded until the last song. More...

We had Andy as the DJ for our wedding on April 1st. My husband and I knew we wanted to go with him, because we met at another event he DJ'ed, and the atmosphere was always fun and exciting. As an aunt said at the wedding of her OWN DAUGHTER in July about our reception, "That was the most fun reception I had been to in 15 years!"

During the planning process Andy always kept us up to date with what we should be doing to plan for our reception as far as music and entrances go, and he had several tools on their website to help us do just that. Mitch and I had picked a unique song for our first dance and it didn't phase him that it was not in their library; he got it anyway! He also had some of the best ideas for our grand entrance, timeline to make things run smoothly, and new, fun things to make our reception our own.

On the day of the wedding, our wedding party arrived to reception a little early, but we were already to eat! Andy gave us time to freshen up, and had us all lined up for the grant entrance and my wedding planner wanted us to wait ANOTHER TWENTY MINUTES, because it would fit her timeline better. I did not want to do that, and Andy handled everything for me. He went and talked to her, and got us into the reception when we wanted to. He was very attentive throughout the night and even brought me my slice of cake, because we were so busy talking to guests, which was definitely not on his list of duties!

We could not have asked for better DJ (and beyond) service.
