We really enjoyed planning our wedding reception entertainment with Jeff Hay! It was great to get to meet him several times leading up to our event. He shared great song ideas, many of which we used for our formal dances. What’s more is he shared many tips and tricks about the evening’s proceedings that helped us organize other aspects of the night (games, speeches, etc.). We were able to use many of our own song ideas and he did a great job blending them together with “standard wedding dance music.”

Jeff was there all afternoon, which gave him a chance to meet several of the guests, which made for a great lead-in for the reception and dance afterwards. We also used his wedding MC services which took the pressure off our family and friends. He did the basic MC duties (introducing the wedding party, introducing the speakers, etc) but on top of that he incorporated a couple fun games that allowed the guests to get to know not only us, but eachother better.

What an awesome night! Thanks Jeff!

DJ Haymaker was an incredible DJ/Entertainer at our wedding. He is extremely professional, fun, and definitely creates the party vibe for any event. He is extremely thorough and gets to know the bride and groom on a personal level. To guests it seems that he is a close family friend instead of a hired entertainer. The party vibe never died, the dance floor was always packed, the games were fun, and he had ourselves and our guests in hysterical bouts of laughter. He kept in touch and offers wedding planning advise throughout your entire engagement if need be. He takes your visions and turns them into a reality. He is worth every penny. Looking back I wouldn’t change a thing about our wedding, and our guests have raved about our DJ. Number one DJ in the Okanagan for sure!

Thanks again!

DJ Haymaker was an absolute blast. He was extremely helpful and courteous in all aspects that he was involved in with our wedding. From giving us helpful tips and answering questions on what or how something could be done, hilariously introducing our wedding party (everyone loved it), having our guests play his awesome survivor game or playing a mix of music so all the guests were out on the dance floor. DJ Haymaker has a reputation of being the best in Kelowna and we found out why. He kept us at ease all night and couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks Jeff!

Jeff Hay — DJ Haymaker puts you at ease and has the know-how and professionalism to read the crowd and create a fantastic party.

Our guests loved him and had an absolute blast. You might think wedding games are cheesy… you will change your mind after seeing DJ Haymaker in action!

The biggest thing we wanted for our wedding was to have a crazy and memorable party and DJ Haymaker made that happen. He catered so well to our needs and requests- you are in good hands with DJ Haymaker!

Thanks Jeff!

It’s been nearly two months since our wedding and people are still talking about it, everyone loved the full day of wine touring, gorgeous ceremony venue, but most of all, how DJ Haymaker had the perfect music for each moment and different location in the background, it was like being in a movie. We had a friend sing at both our ceremony and do a full set at our reception and DJ Haymaker made all of her AV possible. DJ Haymaker had the dance floor packed from the first song with the “McStack Mashup” and kept it rolling with all of the music we wanted to hear, country, house music and good ol’ Michael Jackson hour. It was awesome and we’re so glad he was the first vendor we hired, I don’t know how we would have pulled off a destination wedding without his guidance, suggestions and vendor hook ups. DJ and Wedding Planner in one!

Thanks so much Jeff – you rock the Kasbah

From the Mother of the Bride!!

It was great to see you on Friday evening at the Benewealth event……what an event eh!!!!! You really are a sought after person!!!! Have to tell you we were at my niece’s wedding on Saturday in Vernon…………there was a live band but no entertainment………..suffice to say there were many positive comments from people that had attended both events what a difference it makes to have a DJ Haymaker!!!!!! Thanks again. Here is a paragraph that I prepared for you for your website – I hope you like the following… is most sincere!!!! Chris

“Where to begin???? Jeff from the first time we met for coffee to discuss Robyn & Tyke’s wedding until the lights came on after the dance you have out done yourself!!!

Your positive energy completely relaxed all of us and instilled confidence that the day would be perfect and it was more than perfect.!! I can’t tell you how many times I heard throughout the evening and still that it was the best wedding people had attended and that is because of you. The games were hilarious and really got the crowd going.

When we had met for coffee you shared with me that your goal was to get two people that did not know each other at the start to be buddies by the end……Mission Accomplished. We totally and completely lucked out in booking you and should we need a DJ in the future you are definitely our man. Thanks again for helping make beautiful memories of a beautiful day!

Hey Jeff!

We are STILL basking in our Wedding Bliss! Honestly, what an amazing day; it really couldn’t have gone any better. You really did give us peace of mind – we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Matt and I had an absolute blast and I know all of our guests did too!

Our impression of DJ Haymaker:

Where to begin…Our Wedding day was absolutely perfect. We really do owe a lot of thanks to Jeff as he kept our day rolling along smoothly. From the Ceremony to Cocktail Hour, to the late hours of the night; Jeff kept the party going. He definitely knows how to read a crowd. Most importantly, Matt and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Jeff gave us peace of mind and really kept us on track. From the bouquet/garter toss, to first dances, Jeff had it under control! Folks at our Wedding definitely like to Party and that’s exactly what Jeff gave us; there was never a dull moment! Our friends and family are STILL talking about our Wedding…”Best Wedding Ever.” So many great memories were made that will never be forgotten.

Jeff also organized some great Wedding Games that our guests absolutely loved, it really got the whole room engaged! The energy in the ballroom was absolutely amazing.

AND to top it off, Jeff really went above and beyond – he sent us a few videos after our big day. We weren’t able to have a videographer so it was fantastic that Jeff was able to capture some of those important moments for us!

Thank you again Jeff, you are an amazing DJ and really just a lovely person over all 🙂

Choosing the right DJ for a wedding is not an easy task, as having the right guy there can either make or break the party. DJ Haymaker is THE GUY who will not only make the party, but he will go over and above all the callings of a simple DJ. Some of our guests thought he was not only the DJ but our wedding planner. Time and time again we have had guests say to us, “what an amazing DJ”, “was he your wedding planner” and “what a fun and memorable party”.

He took care of every detail, any request, made arrangements or changed plans with the reception staff when the bride and groom could not. He even had safety pins for me when I needed to adjust the length of my wedding dress so I could comfortably dance. YES HE IS THAT GOOD!!! Prior to our ceremony he had recommendation of songs to play as we walked down the aisle, and assisted with getting everyone and everything set up perfectly. My husband and I were amazed by his charisma, talent and attention to every detail.

At the reception the ice breaker ‘games’ were a riot, as were the introductions of the bridal party. It is not only that he manages to entertain the crowd, but he has that confident radio voice that just captivates the audience and has everyone engaged. If you want a fun wedding party that has everyone on the dance floor all night long and will have your guests wishing for more, he is the ONLY DJ we would recommend.

His mission is simple, to help the bride and groom have the best day of their lives!!! Thank you Jeff for making our special day such a seamlessly perfect, fun, happy and memorable night!”

Hi Jeff!

HUGE thank you for all your hard work, wow! Could not have pulled it off without you that is for sure! I am waiting for some pictures myself, I am sure there are some funny ones! I will send to you when I get some. We went to a birthday party last night and all our friends are still talking about how much fun they had, especially the “McCabe Robinson Mash Up” you did followed by “Shout” … one friend said it was the best 12 minutes of her life! hah!

Here is my review for your web page and I added it to the Wedding Wire and Facebook too.

The video that Brendan and I did is probably so bad because we were pretty tipsy haha, I think I meant to say you looked like Bryan Baeumler …not Mike Holmes. Bryan is the best HGTV Host out there so don’t worry it’s a win for you! Anyways!

Ok that is it for now but I will send you some pics when I get some 🙂

Take care 🙂

Having Jeff Hay as our wedding DJ was the best decision we made in the entire planning process. Our goal was simple : best wedding ever. And it was accomplished thanks to DJ Haymaker.

He was so organized, professional, and knew how to help keep the day on track. Because of him we were able to relax and have fun.

It was also the little things he did such as coordinate with the banquet staff to adjust timing when we were running behind, special sound effects during speeches, being cued into our wishes, always watching me for signs, hilarious introductions, interacting with guests, making sure our grandparents were having fun and playing a song for them to dance to, providing a box of costumes and hats that we loved, and keeping the dance floor full at all times!

I couldn’t imagine our wedding without him and I really appreciate all the time and care he put into getting to know us before and helping to quarterback the best day of our lives!

Thanks so much Jeff!

Just wanted to thank you for everything!!!!!!!

We had a blast! “Best Wedding Ever” is all I have been hearing from our guests. All of our family and friends have been raving about how well the wedding went; from the beautiful venue at Summerhill Winery to the highly entertaining DJ/MC. You were so professional yet fun and easy to talk to at the same time.

The way you brought all of our friends and family together with your games was amazing. Your music choices and suggestions were just perfect. I have never seen a dance floor that packed for the entire night.

Our wedding couldn’t have went any better. With so many things going on throughout the day you made it all happen so seamlessly. By the end of the night it felt like you were one of our best friends.

We couldn’t be any happier with the way our wedding day went. Our wedding was flawless, fun, hilarious and so fitting to our personalities.

Thank you so much and all the best in the future.
