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.

Hire A Professional Who Loves What He Does!
Fred was a miracle last minute addition to our wedding team. I reached out to Fred 3 weeks before my wedding date due to last-minute change. Fred wasted no time and immediately contacted my husband and I to make sure he understood our wedding vision.Sent on 09/28/2019
Throughout the short yet efficient planning process with Fred, Fred was available 24/7 & offered up his expertise to make sure our wedding agenda would run seamlessly.
Fred, is a very talented professional and went out of his way to make sure our day went perfectly (this greatly reduced my stress).
Never underestimate the importance of a wedding DJ as they serve as the host and create an atmosphere for your guests! Fred was a wonderful host and helped keep us on track the whole night while keeping our guests entertained.
We feel very fortunate to have worked with Fred and for him to have been apart of our dream come true wedding day.
If you are looking to work with a professional who loves what he does (and it shows), reach out to Fred!

You won't be disappointed!
We originally chose Fred because I was using every single vendor my friend used for her wedding because I was just so overwhelmed with planning everything on my own. After our first conversation I knew we made the right decision. Fred was amazing and helped with not only choosing songs but also the details of the ceremony and the reception. He even found a bagpiper for our march wedding! He goes above and beyond his role to make sure your wedding is perfect. My friends and family had NOTHING but compliments for him. In fact, my cousin (who never dances) was commenting on how fun the music was and how he didn’t want to stop dancing! I promise you that you won’t be disappointed with Fred Hart!!Sent on 03/27/2019

Great Wedding DJ
We were married in the beginning of October 2018. My wife and I both work long hours so we didn't have much time to give towards the music/ MC at out wedding. Fred was great, he worked with our busy schedule and was available when we needed to talk to him. We pretty much gave him an idea of what kind of music we wanted to hear at the wedding, and he did a great job in filling in the blanks (any instructions that we actually gave him were followed). Our venue came up with a couple last minute restrictions in term of the sound and Fred was able to adapt to their needs while still providing a fun atmosphere for our guest. I thought that he was a great value for the service that he provided, and would recommend him for anyone looking for a wedding DJ.Sent on 02/17/2019
