    Excellent team - amazing to work with!

    Thank you for making our music entertainment process so easy and fun! We found your website playlist form easy to use and helpful for planning. Our DJ was amazing day of our wedding - it started to rain and he managed to pipe our processional music safely from his van to keep all the equipment safe but not compromise our ceremony! True professionals. The reception was so much fun and all the music kept to our choices and preferred genres. Thank you for being such an important part of our special day :)

    Lots of Fun, but Not Professional or Prompt Service

    I will say this - Tiger 8 prides themselves on "Party Rockin'" (their words) and they were true to that! The DJ who did our wedding Matt "The Cardigan" was awesome, he was a really great guy. He met with us in advance to go over every detail, was super friendly and understanding, and even stepped in to perform MC duties when our friend had to back out at the last second. I have absolutely no qualms with him or his work, he helped us have a GREAT party. Additionally, we hired Aaron as a pianist for our ceremony through Tiger8, and he also did an incredible job. Was super friendly and accommodating, played great, and even learned new songs for us and played ukelele too. He was so good that someone told me they thought it was the recorded version of the songs he sang. Would hire both Aaron and Matt again any day.

    HOWEVER, it wouldn't be a true review if we didn't mention the negatives too. We had to remind Tiger8's management to fulfill their end of the contract on multiple occasions. First, to set up our online portal so we could start inputting our songs and information. After our first meet and greet, they'd said that portal would be up shortly after, but after a month of not seeing it, I reached out to them, with their only excuse being that they were busy and "behind". Then again later, I asked if we'd been assigned a specific DJ yet, and they reminded me that they were usually assigned 60-90 days before the event. Well, 30 days before, we still had no DJ assigned and they were asking for final payment. We refused to pay until they had lined us up with someone (60 days later than promised) and had met up with him (and that was the aforementioned DJ Matt, who was great). Overall the professionalism just wasn't really there. They always apologized but their excuses made it seem like we just weren't that valued of clients. In the end it worked out, but it was a lot of unnecessary stress for an already high-strung bride like myself.

    Tiger8 and our DJ Peter truly delivered! Their decor/lighting offerings are great and looked perfect at our venue. Their online tool for music selection made things so effortless and assured - we could easily list the music we did not want to hear and the music we had to hear. Peter was also very skilled at contributing to the wedding overall with little musical touches here and there that truly made a difference.

    Tiger 8 Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you SO much for these kind words! It was such a pleasure working with you guys and an honour to be a part of such an awesome day. All the best to you guys moving forward and hopefully we'll catch you on a dance floor somewhere again soon!

    Best dj!

    Tiger8 was so professional, organized, and overall great to work with throughout our entire wedding-planning process.

    Our DJ Nic ("Loveboat") was absolutely amazing!! He was super patient and easy going with all our requests and changes throughout the planning process. He was super organized on the day of the wedding- making sure that everyone was where they needed to be for key moments (ex. he didn't start the cake cutting song until he knew the photographers were there, etc. etc.). The music was exactly what we wanted, our guests had an absolute blast and were dancing all night long! No body wanted the party to end, even our DJ Nic played two "last" songs.

    Our wedding was the most amazing day and the Tiger8 team played a huge part in that!

    I highly recommend Tiger8 and DJ LOVEBOAT!!

    Tiger 8 is an incredible DJ company! They worked with us from day one to make sure they knew what our taste in music was. We had various meetings with them in person to get to know our DJ. They have a great team who communicated with us and walked us through the whole process. On the day of, Nic brought a great party to our wedding! We had requested some latin music and he did a great job of integrating it into the night. The dance floor was full of dancing feet all night long.

    Tiger 8 Entertainment's reply:

    Thanks a TON for the kind words Alejandra! It was such a pleasure working with you guys and an honour being involved in such a momentous occasion! All the best to you guys as you embark on this next chapter together.

    Tiger8 was a great company to work with the entire way and definitely great value. Peter Lazar was incredibly responsive to all our emails and hooked us up with Mike "Big Christmas" who DJ'd our wedding at Honsberger. Incredibly professional the entire night - we didn't need to direct him at all during our night. He played a great set and pretty much took every single request that was sent his way. I had friends who aren't big dancers saying they loved our DJ and were out there dancing. Thanks Big Christmas for delivering and making our night truly memorable.

    Also, book Giant Jenga. Absolute must. The crowds of non-dancers around that game was huge at times. Great fun for those who don't want to dance all night. Thank you Tiger8!

    We were so impressed with what great communication we have with UrbanRoom Events/Tiger8 Entertainment! Peter Lazar replied to every e-mail so quickly and answered any questions we had. Our DJ was originally Kersten, who we met with and loved. However, due to unforeseen issues, Kersten was unavailable and Dallas ended up being our DJ. We spoke with Dallas on the phone and we were sure he was going to be the perfect fit for our wedding. On the wedding day, he was there early and had the tunes going before the first guest arrived. We were so, so impressed with the song selections he made. We told him the type of music we like and we were so amazing! Everyone was raving the next day about how the dance floor was packed right until the bitter end and it was because of Dallas's perfect song selections. Hire UrbanRoom Events/Tiger8 Entertainment for your wedding, you will not regret it, we sure don't!! Thank you Dallas, Peter and Kersten :)

    Hey Natasha!
    Ahhhhhhh!!! We had such a good time party rocking with you guys.... Pretty sure those old wood walls at country heritage park hadn't seen party animals like you guys in a long time... Just the best! Thanks for letting us be part of such an epic night!

    After working with UrbanRoom Events/Tiger8 Entertainment for our wedding, I can see why they are on our venue's preferred vendor list! From the initial email I received when sending in my inquiry, I was completely blown away by the AMAZING customer service I received. Peter Lazar, the owner was not only very quick to respond, but his emails actually made me smile - his energy and great attitude is infectious! Both Peter and Dallas (who was our DJ for the day) worked with us to ensure that everything was absolutely perfect for our big day. And it turned out EVEN BETTER than we could have imagined. Dallas' song selections were on point throughout the entire night - he really read the crowd well! Dallas graciously accepted song requests without question and, as an added bonus, gave our guests a step-by-step tutorial on how to 'Whip and Nae/Nae' - true story! It was honestly one of my favourite parts of the evening! I cannot speak highly enough of Dallas, Peter and UrbanRoom events - they truly made our wedding so memorable and so fun. I would HIGHLY recommend these guys for any brides and grooms to be!
