    Hot Wax was great!

    Hot Wax was very easy to work with. I was very happy with their response time via email. They were sure to have all of our songs play at the right times. I'm very happy with their service and would have no reservations about recommending them to a friend.

    Highly recommend Hot Wax DJ's!

    My husband and I couldn't be happier with the service from Hot Wax! From the start, they were prompt with responses and made personal phone calls to ensure everything was clear. We sincerely felt like they actually cared about our wedding and making it special for us. They listened to all of our notes regarding song selections and even start times of the songs. Literally everything was perfect and the dancing was so much fun! We would highly recommend them as your DJ for your next event!

    Hot Wax Entertainment's reply:

    Hi Victoria,
    Thank you for your kind words, glad to hear everybody had an awesome time and we certainly look forward to seeing you at future events.
    We pride ourselves in reading the crowd and working closely with our clients to deliver exactly what they want.
    Thank you again for including us on your big day, wishing you all the best as Mr. and Mrs.!

    Very professional wedding DJ

    Elliott was very helpful in finding us a DJ package that worked within our budget and still having a great experience. Mike the DJ was on time and set up with no issues. He was able to do our outside ceremony and then move inside for the reception. Very happy with hotwax entertainment!

    Hot Wax Entertainment's reply:

    Hi Alanna,
    So happy to hear that you, Jonny, your families and invited guests had such a fun evening. Thank you for trusting us with your Dj entertainment. Wishing you both all the best as Mr & Mrs.

    Great DJ service!

    DJ Ward was excellent!!! All the guests had a great time and we only heard positive feedback. I personally love him as well since he played all the top 20 songs we requested. He was very patient and guided us throughout the reception when it came to speeches about how to position our microphones, etc. We will definitely recommend him to other soon to be brides and grooms.

    Hot Wax Entertainment's reply:

    Hello Christina,
    We are thrilled to bits to hear how much you enjoyed (and love) DJ Ward! That's so awesome! Our team always wants to ensure that your experience is top notch.
    All the best as Mr. & Mrs.!

    BEST Wedding DJ - thank you! :)

    Without question we would recommend Hot Wax to any friends planning a wedding or event. We had some particular requests for songs that aren't very common in North America (some Nigerian pop tunes :) and Hot Wax found some of them for us, we sent them some and they played exactly what we wanted to hear. We described the general type of "feel" we wanted for our event and they nailed it! Professional, respectful, fun and definitely worth the value! Thank you SO much for making our wedding a fabulous fun dance party.

    Great service and people to work with!

    Hot Wax was awesome. We had Tom, the DJ and he was fantastic. Our venue got hot inside so people went out to dance on the patio. Seeing this, Tom pointed the speakers to the outside so people could dance! Towards the end, he played my husband and I a song and hung out with us to chat. Super friendly! Elliott is amazing to work with too, always fast to respond. Highly recommend!

    Hot Wax Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you Elissa! Reading the crowd and creating an atmosphere is one of the qualities you get when you work with us. We don't just push play. Tom cares. If you are having fun, your guests are having fun, then he (and our other guys are having fun). Thank you for choosing to work with Hot Wax!

    Amazing Entertainment Service

    Our DJ was amazing! We had such a great night, everyone was dancing until we closed/last call. I was worried that people won't be dancing much be bad experiences from other wedding, but our DJ was able to read the crowd and provided fantastic dancing environment. The lights were amazing as well.
    Our guests also loved the photo booth!

    Hot Wax Entertainment's reply:

    Cathy, we love matching the right DJ with the right couple/crowd. After 32 years, this has become our specialty! As you have your USB with all the pics from our photobooth, you can reflect on them anytime you wish. We are looking forward to seeing you on the dance floor again at an upcoming friend's wedding. All the best...

    We got married in July out in Okanagan Falls, and we were so fortunate to work with accommodating and credible vendors. Our DJ was so personable, and really set the tone and kept the feet dancing all night long. I would use Hot Wax for any event I need a DJ, and highly recommend them for your wedding! Thanks so much for helping make our special day top notch!

    Hot Wax Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you Christy for raving about what we do! Destination weddings are not just fun for your guests, but our DJ's love them too! We heard about all of your special moments and loved seeing your photos. It looks like a great time was had by all. We were thrilled to have been a part of your special day.
