Amazing! He got everyone up & dancing all night
DJ holtie was amazing! Everyone that was a guest says they have never dance so much at a wedding ever! He was so fun & accommodated each song we asked for & then some he made each introduction; bouquet toss & garter toss a blast! The photobooth we added through him was a huge hit & everyone enjoyed!Sent on 09/25/2019

Highly highly recommended!
My wife and I celebrated our wedding recently in Harwich Port, Cape Cod, MA, and Derek Holtie was our DJ for the day. We can only describe DJ Holtie's service and what it brought to our special day as perfect!Sent on 10/02/2019
Derek was kind, friendly, well organized and highly professional. He played the songs we requested, in the order requested, and also mixed it up with his own songs (that complemented our songs well) when needed. Attending the wedding was an international crowd ranging in age from 3 weeks to 84 years old. Everyone had a good time! The dance floor was never empty (which is remarkable because this was a smallish wedding with only about 70 guests) as Derek read the room well and adjusted his song choices appropriately. All his announcements during the evening were also spot on and well timed.
So, if you need a friendly laid back DJ who knows his music and ready to "give it all his got" so you and your spouse and all the guests can have a good time, then DJ Derek Holtie is your guy. We recommend him very highly!
