DJ Haymaker made our wedding, during the year before our wedding we asked him a ton of questions as we needed help with many different things. He gave us lots of awesome ideas such as doing pictures before the ceremony, which by the way was the best idea ever! It keeps everything flowing without any gaps between the ceremony and the reception, and after the ceremony you can have some time to talk with the guests and have a glass of wine!

A few days before the wedding we met him for coffee and went over everything to do with the wedding which was a huge stress reliever. He gave us some great ideas in regards to changing some things at the reception which we feel really made a huge difference.

For the ceremony at Cedar Creek Estate Winery he helped choose all the different songs for us walking down the isle and made some suggestions that we would have never thought of that really set the mood for the ceremony right from the start. He also was the MC for the whole wedding and kept everything rolling smoothly on time, he has the ability to read the crowd and kept everyone entertained all night!

The dance floor was going all night and there was never any gaps when the floor was empty, I couldn't believe almost half the guests were partying with us until 1am! It's the first wedding i've seen that the dance floor was so full all night right to the end!

If your lucky enough to have DJ Haymaker at your wedding you will have memories for life just like we do!

I originally hired Jeff because I didn’t want to worry about music during the ceremony and reception – but I got so much more than what I bargained for! Jeff was incredibly friendly, professional and organized, and made our ceremony and reception a very personalized, fun and meaningful event that I know I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish on my own.
Personalized Ceremony & Reception -
Jeff offered a consultation so that we could figure out the timeline for the day and decide which songs we wanted to have played during key moments. We had a few songs we knew we needed for sure, and Jeff helped us pick all of the other songs by offering suggestions and playing them for us.
Knowing how much we loved the song “Come on Eileen” (we had it play as we walked down the aisle for the first time as “husband and wife”), he played it one more time at the very end of our reception. It made for an unreal finale, with guests jumping, dancing and hugging.
Jeff was also very willing to take guests song requests, which led to some hilarious and memorable songs and dance-offs.
Useful ideas & games -
I can’t stress this enough – Jeff had all kinds of useful suggestions, ideas and games that made the wedding flow seamlessly and kept everyone laughing and having a great time. Whether it was his icebreakers, his recommendation to go outside during the sunset for photos (wow!) or his incredible games… we loved every moment.
Organized -
When we arrived, Jeff was set up. When we had a question, Jeff had an answer. When the bridal party was getting ready to enter for the reception, he was there, offering recommendations for where and when we should arrive – plus totally willing to change our entrance song to be the Imperial March at the very last minute…
Jeff made our wedding the wonderful, happy memory that it is today. The way the day flowed, the amount the guests laughed and the way we partied right until the very end was testament to how much he cared.

Jeff did an amazing job with helping us to create the best wedding for us, he helped us to add personal touches that made our day unforgettable! He was helpful throughout the process with planning guides and giving advice about other Kelowna vendors. He was easy to correspond with, as we are from out of province this was important. Our guests had nothing but good things to say about him. The loved the wedding games, the dancing, and his MC style. I would recommend Jeff to any couple who is looking for more than just a DJ. When you hire Jeff for your wedding you really can be assured that everything will run smoothly! Thanks again!

We haven't laughed, danced or cried that much in a long time and it was all because of Jeff. He is phenomenal at what he does ... and that is an understatement.

We wanted a party, not just a "good time", we wanted to throw the best one our guests had ever been to and we DID. Jeff was so comfortable to be around, he took the time to know us and he really personalized our day to make us feel special. Since day one he had ideas and suggestions on what to do and what not to do, and as a first time wedding planner (and only time - I hope :P), I found that so valuable.

He is so genuine and all our guests loved him. He connected with everyone and made sure that all our guests connected with each other - so important when there's a room full of people who don't necessarily know each other. The games we played were hilarious and he had everyone in stitches. He just lit up the whole room!

Biggest part to a great party is the music, and boy were we all sweaty from rockin' out on the dance floor. We had 154 guests ranging in age from newborn to 85 and not a single person in the room wasn't singing along to the songs he played, well maybe the newborn, but my point is that the variety of music he played was amazing. We didn't provide a big list of songs, maybe 7 or 8 in total, but it was like he could read our minds and knew what we wanted him to play and when. He played one of my all time favourite songs and I didn't even have it on the list, request it, or even mention it ... he is just THAT good. Every song that was requested, he played. If he didn't have a song, he found it, and all our guests keep saying that Jeff was the "best wedding DJ they've seen".

Jeff, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. It would not have been the same if we didn't have you there to help us celebrate. You're the best! Thanks for the time of our lives.

O.M.G!! DJ Haymaker... He kicks ass!! You will NOT REGRET hiring this guy. He wasn't just a "DJ". He helped with the flow of the entire day. He was the glue that held everyone and everything together. He brought our guests together and created memories that we will NEVER forget. Music, games, entertainment. All I wanted was for my family and friends to say they had FUN. DJ HAYMAKER gets 10 stars. We are grateful and will never forget this for the rest of our lives. We are still talking about the wedding and will talk about it for years to come. We love Haymaker and will hire him again and again for our wedding anniversary.

Using DJ Haymaker was the best decision we made for our wedding day DJ/MC. He took care of all the sound for the ceremony with the best quality and up to date sound equipment. Entrance songs were perfectly timed and the entire ceremony was audible for the guests. At the reception, he acted as DJ/MC and kept the guests engaged and entertained the whole time. We loved that he personally came and found my husband and myself throughout the night to check in with us and to make sure we were enjoying ourselves.
The dance was everything we always dreamed of for our wedding. DJ Haymaker is so skilled at reading a crowd and delivering the right music to keep people partying all night long! Our friends and family are all still talking about what a great time they had. DJ Haymaker was able to use his experience and expertise to help us make our ideal wedding day a reality! He’s professional, fun, confident, optimistic and genuinely cares for a couple on one of the biggest days of their lives. We truly had the best wedding ever and we are so thankful to DJ Haymaker for making that happen!

DJ Haymaker was phenomenal in every way possible; from the pre-wedding meetings to the ceremony and of course the reception and dance. Jeff has a way of making you feel like he's 'got you covered'; I don't know how this was possible but we always felt that Jeff would be there for us and make the day that much more special, and he did!

Jeff had the perfect kind of music playing before the ceremony and somehow magically faded to and from the songs we wanted during the precessional. Jeff was not only our DJ but also our MC/coordinator and every part of the wedding started and ended with ease with no worry from us. He managed to squeeze all the introductions, speeches, dinner, dances, surprises and fun into the short window we gave him - all with every single person there having a blast from start to finish. We did in fact, have many people come up to us to say this was the best wedding they've ever been too and a lot of people asking 'where did you find this DJ!?!?' - we believe that says it all.

Thank you Jeff!

We hired Jeff to be our wedding MC and DJ for our July 12th, 2015 wedding at Cedar Creek and the Eldorado in Kelowna. I had seen Jeff perform at two other wedding previously – my maid of honours and my brothers – and I knew I had to have him for my wedding when that day eventually came. He was so important that we didn’t even confirm the venues until we were sure that we could have Jeff as our MC/DJ!
Any wedding that Jeff is a part of is “The Best Wedding EVER!” and ours was no exception. Jeff takes the time to learn about his couples, their family, friends, and wedding party. He has a way of reading people and crowds to make sure that everyone is having a good time. One example is when he saw my Nana and Papa dancing together and wanted to do something special for them. He played a slow song and called on all couple to get on the dance floor. He then told couples to leave the dance floor first if they were unmarried, then married less than 5 years, 10 years, etc. until it was only my Nana and Papa left dancing after 65 years of marriage. When it was just the two of them, I presented them with my bouquet. It was so sweet and was one of the highlights of the wedding for myself and many of our guests.
From the very beginning I knew that we were in good hands. Jeff is so much more than just an MC/DJ – he is also so important on the actual day in ensuring everything runs smoothly. At the ceremony, he helps to ensure people know when and where to walk, he kept the guests informed as to when they needed to move to the reception venue, and ensured that everything at the reception ran smoothly.
We would HIGHLY recommend Jeff to anyone. His services are above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. He is a professional through and through and made our wedding the best day we could have ever hoped for. I hope that more friends and family get married in Kelowna so I can attend more DJ Haymaker weddings as they are truly spectacular.

The success of my daughter's wedding was in large part due to Jeff. He orchestrated the whole day and thanks to him everything ran smoothly. His choice of music was superb both for the ceremony and the reception. He acted as DJ and made sure the guests were having a good time. I truly enjoyed working with him and could not be more pleased with the results.

Jeff was instrumental in making our wedding as fantastic as it was. He was equal parts DJ, MC, Wedding Planner, Wedding Coordinator, and Invaluable Resource for Recommendations. Jeff made himself available for a half dozen face-to-face meetings as well as being available anytime for email queries. His recommendations for other professionals in the industry were top-notch; he introduced us to our wedding planner as well as our minister, both were themselves invaluable resources! He was there with us every step of the way in the planning process - he even met with our reception venue coordinator to go over the day with us.
As a DJ/MC, he was incredible. He connected with every one of the bridal party to ensure the most personalized ceremony and reception possible. His music selection was fabulous, and he had everyone - including my 85 year old grandmother! - involved in all of his games. He kept the dance floor packed the entire night and made sure to accommodate all requests - of course keeping my husband and my tastes in mind.
I cannot express enough just how amazed I was with Jeff’s services - I give him a 5-Star review, hands down. To anyone who wants THE BEST WEDDING EVER: hire Jeff.
