Aj al - amazing!
DJ AL was absolutely amazing! Our wedding was on August 24th in West Kelowna. While we had a few issues with the ceremony microphone, he had back ups and made sure the day went on smoothly. We also had a hiccup right before our first dance when we realized the Groom's parents had gone to get tylenol and suddenly needed a 10 minute "filler"... Al came to the rescue. On the spot he organized a fun game that kept the crowd on their feet, laughing and entertained while the parents returned. And he read the crowd the entire night - if people started to wander back to their seats, he would change the music to get them back on the dance floor. All in all a huge high five to Al for making our wedding a blast :)Sent on 10/09/2019

The best DJ ever!
We hired Jeff after a recommendation from the venue we chose for our wedding (the Eldordao hotel in Kelowna). From the very first interaction everything was very professional, he was easy to get a hold of and answered all my questions! I ended up speaking to him over the phone and decided to also ask him to MC the wedding. He's such a nice, friendly, personable person and I just had a feeling he'd be great not only as a DJ but as an MC. We met up with him a few times before the wedding and I felt very comfortable with him, his music choices, and I knew his vibe would match ours well. He included some fun games at the wedding which ended up being hilarious and everyone loved it. We had the best time at our wedding and Jeff was a huge part of that, he was not only the DJ but became a big part of feeling comfortable and at ease through the whole thing! I would highly highly recommend DJ Haymaker for your wedding he's the best choice!!Sent on 16/10/2019

Best wedding planner/ dj ever

Hiring Jeff was by far the best decision we made for our big day. The entire day went so smoothly and flawlessly thanks to him. We attended a wedding the summer before that Jeff DJ’d and MC’d which made our decision to hire him an easy one! Jeff is so charismatic and knows how to engage the crowd. He was extremely helpful throughout the planning process and was always happy to have a chat or message me back with any questions I had!
Jeff is extremely personable and even though we didn’t tell him our immediate families names ahead of time he knew all of them by name instantly! We only had positive feedback from guests about Jeff, everyone wanted to know who our DJ was and where we found him! He is so good at reading the crowd and keeping the dance floor full all night! So many of our guests have told us that our wedding was the “best wedding” they have ever been to. We are still riding the high from our wedding and I am so thankful to Jeff for making it the Perfect day.

Best day ever!
If you’re looking for a DJ who really knows how to put on a great party, DJ Haymaker is your guy! He was phenomenal at paying attention to all of the little details and his experience is evident knowing what the crowd is feeling! He really keeps a finger on the pulse of the crowd.Sent on 23/09/2018
Not only does he do a great job of being your DJ, his MC skills take the party to the next level with his personalized introductions, ice breaker games that get all of your guests involved and engaged, and his bridal party games are a definite crowd pleaser! He handled all of our snags perfectly and came up with plan suggestions that made the night run seamlessly. We got SO many compliments on the music and event overall. Jeff really sets the bar high!
