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.

Jeff (aka DJ Haymaker) is not only a talented DJ but also someone you can easily call your friend. Our wedding was perfect, and a large part of that is thanks to Jeff. You can tell he truly cares about making your special day go smoothly. He is more than willing to go out of his way to make sure everyone and everything is where they should be. Jeff goes above and beyond. He is not only there to help the day of the wedding, he’s there every day leading up to it. He always made time in his insanely busy schedule to help us with questions, even the small silly ones. Both my husband and myself, had no doubts about how amazing our day would be because we knew Jeff would put on a good party!

Our guests continue to tell us we had the best wedding ever. They cannot stop talking about DJ Haymaker. Jeff literally had every single guest dancing for practically the entire night. The hats give such a fun element to the night and create great memories and even better photos! Our family cannot wait for the next person to get married so we can have another party with DJ Haymaker. He’s the best!

From the moment my fiancé and I booked DJ Haymaker until the moment we said I do, Jeff was nothing but professional, helpful, and just plain awesome. He offered his expertise when needed but also went out of his way to make our wedding day exactly what we envisioned. He's practically magic, somehow playing music that appeals to multiple generations. Our dance floor was literally packed the whole night and even those family and friends who "don't dance" couldn't help themselves.

Jeff was readily available via phone, text , or email at any time. He even took the time to phone my MC so that they could work together to make sure the day flowed smoothly. My fiancé and I have had non stop feedback about how much fun the whole reception was and how they have never had so much fun on the dance floor before. I highly recommend DJ Haymaker if you want THE BEST NIGHT EVER!!

I was not the bride at the wedding but I was everything else, the planner, the florist, the photographer, the sister of the groom, plus I had three of my own young kids attending. I felt a lot of pressure for everything to go smoothly so when Jeff showed up and took over it was such a relief. He is a wedding expert and understands the flow of a wedding, how to keep people entertained, and is extremely well spoken. As a DJ he keeps the dance floor hopping all night long and has the ability to read a crowd and play music without being “told” or “asked”. And his smile and demeanor just prove that he loves what he does! Thanks Jeff, because of you I actually got to sit back and enjoy my brothers wedding

Our honest first impression of Jeff Hay (DJ Haymaker) was “Wow, this guy really knows how to throw a party! Not only does he play great music but his games are a blast and it helps get everyone excited again for the rest of the evening.” We both saw him at our mutual friend’s wedding and instantly said we HAD to have him!

We have never met a more professional, inspiring, knowledgeable, creative, spunky, etc. person. We could go on for days about how incredible Jeff is. His knowledge of the wedding industry in Kelowna blew us away. He knew everyone’s names, who to talk to, who to use and also lightly treaded who not to use in a very professional way and we’re sure glad he was honest! Our vision was OUR vision. There wasn’t a time where we were told our idea was wrong or bad, he would most definitely suggest things but never once put up a fight if it wasn’t what we had envisioned and didn’t use his idea. Everyone after our wedding commented on how amazing Jeff is. His presence and power are all one to “awe” over as he knew what he was doing from start to finish.

Without a doubt in either of our minds we highly and we mean HIGHLY recommend Jeff to anyone that is needing a DJ no matter the event. You pay for what you get and Jeff is worth EVERY penny! We can’t begin to thank him enough for everything he did and continued to do all the way up to the big day. Choosing Jeff as our DJ was one of the best decisions we could have ever made and we are forever grateful. We hope to attend another event that Jeff DJ’s, as he was nothing short of the BEST DJ EVER!!

We wish Jeff nothing but the best in the future and hope he continues doing what he clearly loves to do. It shows how passionate he is at every event he DJ's.

Thanks again,
Alyssa and Travis Neigum

Jeff was the best to work with for our wedding! He did several things:
-The music for the ceremony and signaled when everyone was supposed to go down the aisle
-MCed the reception and did an awesome job making everyone laugh with his wild and outlandish introductions of the bridal party.
-Was an extremely big help to the bride!You can call him anytime and talk about anything good or bad about your wedding.He offers to be the in between for vendors and does not mind jumping in and telling everyone else to back down or do things a different way if its not to your liking.He was a huge help with solutions and just a friendly ear.
-Had a timeline which he gives to you to go through and make changes to if need be for the whole day. He is very organized and had a package for me to fill out about everything he could possibly need.For those who aren't very good at making decisions he is perfect!He has so many ideas and great music choices to fill in the gaps.
On top of that his DJing skills were awesome!He has several games to play and lots of fun props to use.He gets everyone, young and old, into the games.Everyone was laughing and smiling AND on the dance floor, it was never empty!
During and after the reception he was one of the main things everyone was talking about.From the hilarious introductions to the games the got everyone out of their seats. He knew exactly what to do at each moment to keep everyone happy.Even now several weeks after our wedding people are talking about how awesome and beautiful it was and how much more amazing the DJ made it.

So thank you so much Jeff!

Jeff Hay was an amazing DJ, he really made our party. It was such a small wedding with mostly just family I was afraid that the party would be a flop but Jeff got us rocking with his great energy, fun games, and amazing musical knowledge. He learned people's names and had lots of great interaction with all of the guests all night long, always knowing what to play to keep people moving. He did his homework on us too, and knowing that we're both big Star Trek fans he wore a Start Trek shirt at one point which made everyone smile. And the best part was the compliments afterwards. Everyone at the party really enjoyed themselves and wanted to know where we found such an awesome DJ. Highly recommend DJ Haymaker!
