The Best DJ

We were so fortunate to have chosen Hot Wax to DJ our wedding, specifically DJ Paul. Even though our wedding was very small, we had a blast on the dance floor thanks to Paul. He was able to read the crowd so well, and for the whole 3 hours of dancing there was never a dull moment. He even took requests from my family to play Arabic music which was a big hit and such a pleasant surprise to everyone, even the non-Arabic speaking guests!
The whole night was flawless in terms of music for the cocktail hour, dinner music, first dances, and the party! We are so grateful for you Paul and Hot Wax entertainment!

Look no further Hot Wax is the DJ vendor of choice

You need to not hesitate in booking HotWax as your DJ vendor. Their pricing is competitive. Elliot and his team are so knowledgeable and truly care about your wedding experience. They understand the meaning of service and are pleased to provide it. Thank you are two simple words that don鈥檛 seem quite enough, but from both me and my husband they come with the utmost sincerity and gratitude.
Amongst all my various vendors I hired for my wedding Hot Wax and specifically Elliot stood out for his caring nature, willingness to share experiences and also willingness to guide me through the planning and hiring process, but most of all your response time was so prompt and always reassuring, it made the planning process absolutely seamless. Every question of mine to Elliot was important.

I have seen the other side of this in some of the other vendors I hired so it makes me truly appreciate Elliot and his team.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my wedding day what I always dreamed it could be.

Fantastic DJ and amazing service

We used Hot Wax Entertainment for our wedding and couldn't be happier with their services. From the initial reach out, Elliot responded almost instantly and was always available to answer any questions. On the day of, DJ Mike was fantastic. He knew exactly where he needed to be, read the room and played the right songs to get everyone dancing. We also requested a number of Indian songs to be played too, which he executed perfectly. The dance floor was full the entire night, and we had many compliments from all age groups saying how great the DJ was.

We also used Hot Wax's photobooth services and it was a big hit with our guests - they offer both black & white and colour options and had lots of props. The technicians running the booth were super friendly and ensured everyone had a great experience.

If you're looking for a stress-free, reliable experience, I 100% recommend Hot Wax Entertainment.

So accommodating and professional!

Had the pleasure of hiring Hot Wax for our wedding on Oct. 1, 2022. Elliott was incredibly easy to work with and helped make sure all of our music was passed along to the DJ, Mike. Elliott help make our vision of the photobooth come to life as we had a very particular idea but it turned out better than we imagined. Our guests absolutely loved it. DJ Mike was excellent. He played our songs exactly when he was supposed to like a professional and followed along to our very detailed list throughout the entire event. Lianne who ran the photobooth is full of positive and great energy. She made sure our guests were well taken care of throughout the entire event. Couldn't say anything else other than it was tremendous and I would highly recommend them!

Great DJ/MC service!

We are glad we chose Hot Wax to provide DJ/MC services for our wedding. Elliott and his team were very prompt with their responses to the many questions my husband and I had. We are impressed with their organization skills as they asked us to provide songs for every moment of the ceremony and reception, as well as an itinerary of the wedding day. With those in place, they created a very magical and fun time for us and our guests. Shout out to Ward, who was our DJ and MC for the ceremony and reception; he was very professional and accommodating with last-minute changes. Thanks Hot Wax!

Best DJ service!!!

Elliott and Mike were awesome to work with! Elliott was incredible at communication and always replied to my requests and emails within a few hours! Mike came in on the day of the wedding and knew exactly where he needed to be and when to be there without being asked. He introduced himself, confirmed timelines, and engaged with our guests perfectly! Not only did Mike do an amazing job as a DJ, he also saved one of our guests lives. Our guest had passed out during the ceremony and Mike was so quick to run over and perform first aid with this guest. We could not suggest a better DJ service than this for your future event!

Professional and On point. Awesome DJ!

Hotwax was a great choice for our wedding! Our DJ Ward looked after the entire event including the preceremony, ceremony, supper and reception/dance. He read the crowd perfectly and played our requested music at all the right times. Highly recommend Hot Wax for any event requiring a DJ.
