Exceptional wedding receptions with one vision in mind...YOURS.

Exclusive WEDDINGS ONLY entertainment. One company, ONE DJ, one commitment: "Excellence in Elegance" is my motto. As an accomplished professional voiceover artist, PA announcer, documentary narrator, and veteran Wedding Entertainment Director, I have mastered the artistry of presenting an event to reflect the discerning tastes of brides who envision an elegant reception conducted by a class act DJ / Emcee. Elegant and sophisticated but not stiff or stuffy, fun and entertaining but not wild or wacky. There are NO zany antics, NO inflatable props, NO plastic trinkets, NO group line dances, or goofy shenanigans to make a circus atmosphere out of your special once-in-a-lifetime reception. I won't force upon you MY vision of the perfect wedding reception - YOUR unique vision is my focus.

Thank you for your interest in Frederick Hart Entertainment and congratulations on your engagement. Now comes the daunting task of assembling a memorable wedding ceremony and reception. Using my professional experience, I will assist you in making the music and bridal party announcement portion of the reception the least worrisome aspect of your entire planning challenge. I anticipate bringing my 20 years of unique and elegant wedding expertise to your reception. Since 1994, the wedding reception has been the ONLY type of event that I DJ & emcee and since 2001, my primary source of income. To date I have personally conducted over 1,300 wedding receptions.
You'll understand my philosophy more clearly after you peruse my website. I give my clients as much (or as little) control over every aspect of my service. Not just music. I have had clients in the past who picked EVERY song. One last summer even specified the order that they were to be played. At the opposite end of the spectrum, there are those clients who pick nothing and trust their DJ's acumen. I work equally well with either extreme. Most clients pick a few of their favorites, select some special dedications, and proscribe all of the cheesy line dances and audience participation dances. I won't become an omnipresent character who takes over the spotlight and makes myself the star of the show...no guest will be coming to your reception to see the DJ. I can graciously and gently direct and maintain the spotlight on the bride and groom without ever stealing it...or even sharing it.

If a roomful of wedding guests are sitting and the dance floor is empty, it isn't because the DJ isn't being 'colorful' or animated enough. It's also not because he isn't 'working the crowd' on the mic or passing out plastic trickets, inflatable instruments, or glowing necklaces. It isn't because he's not playing the right audience participation line dances or silly games. People dancing is a direct function of MUSIC. Infectious songs programmed in clever dance sets and inventively mixed in such a way that they create enthusiasm are what establish a celebratory atmosphere pack the dance floor. Bad DJs try to make people dance. Great DJs know how to make people WANT to dance.

I DJed my first wedding in 1989, became a 'weddings only' DJ in 1994, made it my only means of income in 2001 and to date have done over 1,300 wedding receptions. That experience and my ability to customize a completely unique affair are what set me quantum leaps ahead of the competition. It is my passion, profession, and livelihood not a weekend hobby.

Over the past 3 years Matt and I have been to at least 10 different wedding receptions but they all seemed like the SAME ONE. The DJs all played the same old songs, cracked the same corny jokes, and forced guests into the same tired conga lines. We knew that since we wanted a reception different from all the previous ones, finding the right DJ who reflected our tastes and styles was crucial. Fred clearly explained that his job was to present OUR vision of the perfect reception and not his. He listened carefully and gave us some great tips to personalize our ballroom and advice with timing and table layout / seating chart. The lapel microphones that he provided worked perfectly and didn't ruin the pictures like a mike on a stand would have. Fred programmed all of our requests in a playlist for cocktail hour. His opening salutation in Spanish and English was a real plus and made Matt's grandparents feel especially welcome. Some of the Spanish names would have given an ordinary DJ some trouble but DJ Fred handled the pronunciations with ease. Dinner music was an excellent mix of our list and his songs that fit the mood perfectly. Once the dancing started, the room caught fire and Fred played infectious dance sets without yelling things on the mike or trying to hog the spotlight. We could NEVER have had such an amazing reception with anyone else. DJ Fred was distinguished and classy and still rocked the house! Thanks, Fred!!!

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding reception. So much of a reception's success is due to the entertainment so we knew our choice was very important. DJ Fred was given complete control over the music (the only instruction: nothing 'corny') and he delivered BIG TIME. Family members that I have never before seen on a dance floor were sweating by the end of the night because of his awesome mix. He never hogged the spotlight, tried to force people to dance, or made the party about him. He made the reception fun, unique, and classy and we give him FOUR thumbs up! Thanks, DJ FRED!!!

Fred was so reliable and responsive! He always answered his phone and replied to emails right away. He accommodated our every request. I gave him a small playlist and described what we wanted, and he took it from there. With all the details we had to plan, it was so great to have Fred handle that portion of things and work his music magic! Everyone loved the music!

Fred Hart is an excellent DJ! I am a music geek so it was tough to "hand over the reins". To anyone. I think Fred got that early on and respected our game plan. He understood exactly what we were looking for and executed it beautifully. Still getting feedback about "how good our DJ was" and "how it was great to see so many people dancing". Even folks we never expected :-) Big kudos and thanks Fred!

We could not be more pleased that we booked Fred Hart Entertainment for our recent wedding on 10/15/16. Fred was the consummate professional right from the start. He contacted us immediately after we inquired about his services and spent about an hour with us on the phone asking numerous questions to ensure he knew what our vision was for our wedding day. He provided us with all of the resources and guidance we needed in order to perfect our plan- he even sent us a very organized master list of his music catalog and asked us to highlight the various songs or genres that we wanted to hear so that he could make sure this was our vision and not just him compiling a playlist for the night. We told Fred that we wanted people on the dance floor all night long and he did not disappoint!! The playlist flowed well, he kept the beat going & interjected a few slow/romantic songs just at the right moment. Our guests are still raving about how wonderful our DJ was and how much fun they had at our wedding because of the vibe and atmosphere that he was able to provide for us. I would highly recommend utilizing Fred Hart Entertainment for your wedding (or any other event). He's the BEST!

My fiance and I made numerous calls in our search for a DJ to power our classy indoor/outdoor quaint rustic wedding. Most of the DJ's we called seemed to prefer spin top-40 hits at our wedding in an attempt to subtly force their idea of a good wedding, or their idea of what worked for them in the past. All wanted to show up with sub-woofers, a bushel of lasers and fire/fog breathing dragons. In our case the event was held in a three hundred year old historical landmark, the crowd was a bit older and a bit more sophisticated and we had very specific ideas about what we wanted to hear.

We had an hour long chat with Fred about our vision for the event. We shared with Fred our playlist and preference for ambient lounge type tunes for cocktail hour (such as Kygo, Lana Del Ray), then a more classy vibe for dinner (Etta James, Sam Cooke, Sinatra) and then more dance friendly crowd favorites for after dinner. We also tapped Fred's extensive experience with these events to put together the timeline of the evening, speaking with him multiple times before the event. We also asked him to make all announcements and serve as master of ceremony of sorts. A nice touch was Fred meeting me outside of the venue to introduce himself and ask about the proper pronunciation of important tongue twister last names, as well as the proper pronunciation of various foreign songs chosen for the parent dances (and actually delivering on their pronunciation).

Finally a DJ that listened and played exactly what we wanted to preserve the vibe we had in mind, but also had the experience to read the crowd and get people dancing later in the evening.

notes:
-very comfortable performing master of ceremony duties in addition to spinning music
-listened
-professional and reserved if you need him to be but knows how to get the crowd going

Hiring Fred for our wedding was one of the best decisions we could have made.He was PERFECT.In every aspect he surpassed our expectations and helped make our wedding as perfect as it could be. Without him our wedding definitely wouldn't have been the same. In thebeginning we had a miscommunication on the location of the venue. He believed that it was a venue in jersey, however it was in Kentucky. We thought we just lost the opportunity to have him DJ our wedding, but to our surprise he said it wouldn't be a problem. He ended up buying a plane ticket and found a DJ out of Owensboro that he could hire to use the equipment.Once we made the decision to hire him it was extremely easy to contact him and ask some questions. He was always so quick to respond and always a huge help. When it came closer to the wedding and it was time to choose our music we really had no idea what songs to choose, there were so many choices. He was very helpful by sending top charts of all the different categories we would need. And in the end we just chose the main songs (first dances, ceremonial precessional and recessional, and the cake cutting song) and he chose everything else for us. So, leading up to the wedding he was overall fantastic!
Now onto the wedding. He got there in enough time to attend the rehearsal dinner which I though was great as well. That way he got a feel for the place and could see if the place we chose for him to set up was good enough. It was wonderful getting to meet him and talk with him in person before the wedding. And he was so nice in person as well and just really great. The timing of all the songs were great and he really helped keep us on the timeline we made. The love story couldn't have been more perfect he had the attention of everybody and it added so much to it. Also, Fred split our payments into 4 so that really helped us out! He was incredible, I can't recommend him enough to anybody that wants a great wedding experience. You won't regret it!

Fred was recommended by my facility, wedding planner, AND photographer so hiring him was a no brainer. He was always available to consult with me on wedding related issues: arranging tables in the ballroom, creating an efficient timeline, selecting all of the songs for the special dances / events, and even helping us narrow down the long list of hors d'oeuvres. We also chose the LOVE STORY which told the details of our first meeting, first date, and proposal. It was so fun to hear him share everything and to see the responses of our friends and family. It was funny, emotional, and very unique. He took every song from my playlist and fit them in at just the right time to keep everyone dancing and having a great time. He was awesome! You can't go wrong with DJ Fred!!
