Hot Wax was Amazing!!
The dancing at our dancing started very early (at around 7:30) so we were worried people would leave early. Not at all the case! Our DJ had the whole room dancing until last call... and later!
There was not a moment when the dance floor thinned. It was a constant party!
We also had a very diverse group of people, all different ages and with varying tastes in music and he managed to play something for everyone. He even played some Portuguese music for us.
They were incredibly flexible with all our song requests and were with us the whole step of the way.
The owner himself contacted me the week before the wedding to talk things out, make sure all my questions were answered and that all plans were ironed out.
I will admit, they were a bit of a splurge, there are other companies that are less expensive, but they bundle a bunch of services making it less expensive.
Besides it was money very well spent because everyone ended up having a ball at our wedding!

Very impressed with this company through the whole process. To book you deal with Elliot. He is knowledgeable and friendly. You select special songs and playlist requests through an online system. This was fairly simple to use. Your actual DJ you don't meet until the event, but if they are all as good as Chuck you won't have a problem. He was punctual, professional, and did an outstanding job reading the room and keeping people dancing. I've never been to a wedding where people danced so consistently. Also felt like they were a great value for us. They are well known by other wedding vendors as one of the top DJ's in Vancouver. Can't go wrong!

We had the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in the same area and Hot Wax took care of everything. In addition to the audio, we got eight uplights in two colours, the ceiling stars, rented a screen for our slideshow, and rented the photobooth. They were very responsive to all our inquiries and usually got back to us within 48 hours, max - and if they couldn't they'd get back to us and let us know when they could.

The photobooth was one of the biggest hits of the night! There was a screen you stood in front of and a box that took the pictures that faced you and your group. They supplied the costumes and we had 3 poses per picture. 2 copies 5x7. You can take multiple pictures. There was an attendant to help out.

The music was exactly what we asked for and everyone, including the kiddies experiencing the "disco" for the first time, had so much fun!

Elliott called back within a few hours after sending the original email request for a quote and was available to answer any questions throughout the whole booking process. DJ Ward was fantastic, he played all of the top 20 dance requests submitted via website and also took requests as much as possible on the night of. We used the restaurant's speakers for the MCs and slideshow and there were a few problems and DJ Ward was even helping fix the restaurant's equipment. Thanks DJ Ward for an incredible night!

Elliott is very responsive to all our emails and calls in regards to all details prior to the wedding. Mike (our dj) is also amazing, timing all our music the best that he can. We also didnt pick some of the music played, and his picks were amazing! There was no dancing at our wedding but if there was, i am for sure they will get our crown pumping and dancing!

We would love to thank Hot Wax for putting on a rocking wedding for us. Our wedding was nicknamed "The Rock-o-Ween Wedding" on Halloween 2015 and you guys made it happen!

Elliott was a pleasure to work with and he was always accommodating and professional. Being worried and probably a little paranoid, I wanted to test out the projector we were renting and Elliott was kind enough to invite me over to his home to try out the projector. Also, his suggestions about the 8 uplights were spot on and made the room fill with colour as the dance floor opened up in the night.

DJ Elliott (himself) made our Ceremony work beautifully with our custom music. And with our little dance routine during our Reception Entrance, he saved us when my wife and I danced a little too fast and missed our cues. The second half of the night with DJ Chuck was phenomenal; it definitely helps when the DJ is in tune and likes the kind of music that we selected. He mixed the songs masterfully and everyone was dancing the night away. Not only us but everybody didn't want the music to stop because we were having so much fun.

We will look to Hot Wax for our next event!

Hot wax was awesome to work with. Music was a critical part of our wedding, and they did a great job.

Overall the music ended up being awesome, however it would be great in future to be allowed more than 20 song requests for the day of the wedding. I had e-mailed a list of about 50 songs that I wanted played, and on the day of the wedding, the DJ only had the 20 songs that I requested online. He still did an awesome job, but I was going up to him quite a bit to request different songs.

However, they did an amazing job with our slideshow, setting it up and Chuck, our DJ was MORE than accommodating on the day of the wedding. He was awesome.
