DJ Holtie was an excellent choice for our wedding reception DJ!!! Throughout the process of planning our wedding music, Derek was responsive, easy to work with, and helpful with suggestions for our entrance to the reception, first dance, father-daughter dance, etc. He also proved to be a charismatic MC for our toasts and for getting our guests on the dance floor. Speaking of the dance floor…Derek kept it full all night with smart transitions and a great mix of old and new songs– some of which we had requested and some of which he added in himself to complement our choices. And, Derek seamlessly managed all of this despite having to work with an awkward room layout. We have no regrets about going with Derek for our wedding reception, and give him our highest recommendation for yours! Thanks DJ Holtie!
We hired DJ Derek Holt for our Newport wedding and were impressed from our very first point of contact! Derek was quick to respond to emails and texts and was very professional. Most importantly, Derek was very perceptive and understood the exact vibe we envisioned for our wedding reception. He had our wedding guests on their feet from the moment the dance floor opened until he played the final song. Guests were commenting throughout the night about how well he mixed up the music and kept people of all ages dancing. We would give him more stars if we could and recommend him without reservation! In addition to DJ Derek Holt, we had Keith Andrews do our uplighting. We only met him the day of the wedding, but he was incredibly personable and fun! He did a beautiful job with the uplighting throughout the evening, setting the tone for each part of the night from dinner to dancing, and making Belle Mer look even more spectacular!
DJ Holtie was AWESOME. He rocked our wedding (June 6, 2015) and was everything we wanted in a DJ and more.. and he was affordable! We first met DJ Holtie at an Entertainment Specialists wedding exposition in Boston at the Harvard Club. We immediately liked him, he was laid back and seemed very comfortable talking with us and seemed like he was going to be very accommodating to all of our music needs. We could tell he wouldn’t be the overbearing (i.e. getting on the mic and yelling etc etc). Leading up to our event DJ Holtie helped keep us organized and was very attentive to our ceremony and reception personalization. During the wedding itself he rocked it. Other than a few “must plays” and a few “definitely do not play” we pretty much gave him free reign to feel out the crowd and keep people dancing… and he did an incredible job. The dance floor was packed from as soon as it opened until the end of the night. In addition to being a great DJ, Derek was a really nice guy! We were even lucky enough to see him at another wedding later in the summer and he did an equally great job. Thank you DJ Holtie, keep rocking it.
Derek Holt was our DJ for the event. We really had one requirement for the wedding, and that was that it be as wild a party as possible. While we were given the opportunity to have input regarding music selection, I would say in retrospect just leaving it up to Derek was the best thing we could have done. We felt like he had our best interest in mind the entire evening. Even when some guests with hearing aids gave Derek heat for the music volume, he didn’t budge because he knew it would put a damper on the party. (And he told us that he would take the blame, because we certainly didn’t want the music turned down!!) Absolutely epic time and wouldn’t have been the same without him. You’d be a fool not to hire this guy. He was everything we could have asked for and more!!
DJ Holtie is awesome! From the ceremony music to the introductions, and on to the party, everything was perfect! Dance floor was always packed and no one wanted the party to end. I highly recommend DJ Holtie for your wedding DJ!
