Unique and Memorable!
You MUST hire David as your Wedding MC/DJ. His additional to our wedding made our day truly unique. Every review mentions the "Love Story" because it is so special. David took our stories and melted them together to create an enjoyable experience for us & our guests. Every guest mentioned this was one of the highlights of the wedding.Sent on 11/27/2018
On top of all that, we really wanted a unique experience of Karaoke at our wedding! David owned the night bringing all the equipment for our guests to sing their hearts out all night long.
Probably the best vendor decision we made was hiring David Hoyt!!
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:Jasmine and Jason, thank you so much for trusting me with your day. I absolutely loved that your friends came to sing!! Yours is the only wedding I've ever done where I did not play one dance song. Karaoke ruled the night and what a fun time it was!!

Hiring David to officiate our wedding and DJ/MC our wedding reception was one of the best experiences that we had throughout our entire wedding process! The Love Story was such an amazing touch to our wedding reception! 3 months later, our friends and family are still raving about it! Thank you SO much David!Sent on 01/06/2018

Hi David,Sent on 07/18/2017
We want to thank you so so so much for giving us the best wedding. Everyone complimented on what a fantastic job you did. We all loved the Love Story and how it was tied into the first dance. It was magical ( and a "few" happy tears). Some guest even commented that they wished they had you for their wedding -you were so great!!! You have left us with incredible memories of our 4th of July Wedding celebration. Thank you again, Robert and Kim.
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:Kim, you and Robert were an absolute joy! Thank you for trusting me with your day. I am so happy you were so pleased. :)
Deb · Married on 04/15/2017
David was central to the planning of our wedding. At our very first meeting he went over everything he provided and how he would make our wedding memorable. Although our wedding was very small and in the morning he assured us he had done similar ones and he would do everything he could to make sure our guests would enjoy our long awaited celebration. He was also very accommodating regarding fees. We were a little hesitant about the Love Story as we had met long ago, went separate ways, had families and then found each other again. We wanted to be tasteful with our grown children. David did an absolutely fabulous job putting it together - our friends and family (even our kids!) really enjoyed it - it certainly was one of the most memorable parts of a day that was so special to us! David is so much more than a DJ or entertainment director - he will help you create a ceremony and celebration that is completey unique to you -not one of those 'cookie cutter' wedding receptions we've all attended dozens of times. Weddng planning is crazy and overwhelming whether you have 20 guests or 200. David's experience and fun personality is perfect to take the stress out of one of the biggest parts of your specal day and we knew it the moment we met him. Thank you so much David - you are AWSOME!Sent on 04/23/2017
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:Thank you so much Deb and Doug! I absolutely love the fact that you guys dated in high school....then went your separate ways....then met back up 35 years later!! How cool is that!?!?!
Taiwah · Married on 12/14/2016
David stepped in really last minute when we were when we needed to make a change with the previous DJ and it was amazing he made sure I was comfortable with him, he made sure that we were having a good time he continuously checked in with me; it was just really amazing working with him and he went above and beyond being accommodating I would definitely recommend him.Sent on 12/16/2016
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:Thanks so much for the wonderful review Taiwah! You, Richard and your family were so kind to one another and everyone seemed to work together to make sure that you guys had one fantastic celebration! I wish you both nothing but the best!
Sarah · Married on 11/19/2016
When we first met David we didn't realize that we would be meeting one of the most important people in the planning and execution of our wedding. When we met with David he went over everything he was able to provide and how he would make our wedding memorable. To be honest, we felt completely overwhelmed. We met with a few other DJs but once you get a taste for filet mignon, ground beef just won't do.Sent on 12/29/2016
David was able to work with us on his fees due to our budget and we had a DJ. David really made an effort to get to know us as a couple. We even joined his family and him for dinner. He was also readily available for us to bounce ideas around. He even sent us a book on how to take our reception to the next level. Additionally, he went above and beyond by introducing us to our photographer and helping us locate other vendors when needed. David was also able to officiate our wedding and this friendship we built with him allowed for his words to have a deeper meaning to us.
One of the major things that sets David apart from other DJs is his telling of our Love Story. This was a memorable moment in our reception and we loved that everyone who attended our wedding got to hear the story of our relationship. The amount of work that goes into it is apparent and we can't imagine our day without it.
David was so much more than a DJ/MC/Officiant. He is an absolute ASSET to your wedding day. Everything ran so smoothly and we had nothing to worry about the entire evening. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and without a doubt, David played a huge role in that. After being such an integral part of our day, it is impossible that we will not remain life long friends.
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:I love you two. :) I'm so glad that we met. I'm so glad that you trusted me with your day. I'm so glad that we are going to remain friends. Your review made me tear up. It's what I'm hoping to accomplish with every wedding I"m involved in. Thank you so much for the kind words. Now.....where are we going to dinner next?!?! See you soon!
Stephen · Married on 09/25/2016
I will be upfront and say that I have known David for a few years now and have been in attendance to several of his events at church and even my wife's birthday. All of the events, however small, were done to perfection with a true passion for entertaining. David takes the time and money to train and hone his craft on a regular basis with top DJs from around the world, and it shows. For this reason we chose to hire him for our friend's wedding as their wedding present. There is a great difference between cost and value. Dave was not the cheapest guy out there, however he is worth every penny and then some. I have heard him talk about the "Love Story" he does and was interested to hear one that we knew. He has the gift of story telling. Hands down, the love story was worth the entire fee by itself. If you do your part, and answer the questions, he will craft your own words into the story you wish you could tell yourself. The audience laughed and the bride beamed as the story flowed from the first time they met to the seats where they sat listening to their own story. It was the best wedding gift we could have given. In short, you could spend $500 on a DJ like I have in the past, and regret every penny; or spend the extra and have a wedding story you and your guests will never forget.Sent on 11/12/2016

Kim · Married on 05/21/2016
David was absolutely amazing to work with. The first time I spoke with him on the phone I told him that music was one of the most important aspects about our wedding and he agreed 100% and was just as excited as I was about the wedding. That was one of the first things that impressed me about him. When we met him for the first time he was so professional and we really liked that he didn't charge by hourly blocks, he told us that didn't make sense and he was ours for the evening because where else was he going to go? That pretty much had us sold. We had a very long play list, and he did his best to play a lot of the songs we wanted. He did a great job at reading the vibe of our guests and keeping them out on the dance floor and he accepted EVERY request that our guests gave him at the reception. I love love love that he found the song that I wanted to walk down the aisle to, I told him it HAD to be a specific version of a song and he found it!! Along with him finding my song coming down the aisle though, I love the personal details he put in to everything... for the grand entrance, he didn't just introduce our wedding party , he told short stories about them all that we had shared with him. And one of my favorite parts of the whole day was listening to our love story. To any brides/grooms considering another DJ - don't do it.... when you hear about the love story, and then finally get to hear your own story on your wedding day you'll realize you made the best decision ever hiring David. He was also very helpful when we were planning, we had a very DIY wedding, and he would check in occasionally to see if we needed help with anything. He also helped to put my husband's mind at ease about wearing a microphone during the ceremony, which was much needed, the poor guy was stressing out a lot. If we could do the wedding 100 times over, we would ask David to be our DJ every time!!! He is incredible!!Sent on 06/06/2016
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:Kim and Jon...it was truly a pleasure! Your (windy) wedding up in Pinetop, AZ was so gorgeous and so fun and so memorable! Thank you so much for your kind words and for trusting me with your day. I'm so glad that through the rest of your years you'll be able to look back at your wedding as a day that exceeded all of your expectations!

David,Sent on 04/13/2016
Last night was perfect! Thank you for fulfilling all of our hopes and dreams when it comes to the music played! My guests LOVED your playlist! Even the people at the venue ranted and raved about how you were one of the best DJ's they have seen and heard at their venue. For that, thank you. You made our night unforgettable. Also, you NAILED the love story! I'll be honest I was skeptical at first, but after hearing it with our loved ones surrounding us, you told the story perfect so everybody could understand our love story. Again, this was something else throughout the night that became a conversation starter with some guests who said "I had no idea that happened" or "I loved that your DJ did that! It was great!"
All I can say is, thank you. Thank you for an unforgettable night for Ricky, myself and our awesome guests.
Jordan · Married on 02/27/2016
More than just a positive review, my husband and I would like to personally thank David Hoyt for making our wedding celebration absolutely perfect. Brides and Grooms...look at me...just look...I cannot express how comforting it was to know that amidst all of the chaos and stress leading up to the wedding and during the ceremony/reception, David had our back. I witnessed David Hoyt in action while I was the maid of honor at my best friend's wedding, and even though I was pretty sure I wanted him at my wedding, I still interviewed other DJ/MC services. The overall feeling I got from the other DJs was this completely generic and cheesy club thumping vibe. David has the knowledge, experience, and professionalism to make your celebration a fun and interactive experience for all guests, from infants to great grandparents. His personal touches made our day feel so special and we consider him part of the family now. Choosing David Hoyt as not only our DJ/MC but our officiant as well was the best decision we made for our wedding. It was a truly phenomenal experience and my husband and I cannot express in words how grateful we are to David for delivering the wedding of our dreams.Sent on 03/03/2016
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:Jordan and Joe....look at me....just look.... :)
Devan · Married on 12/13/2015
David was our officiant as well as our MC/DJ at our reception. As our officiant, he took all the comments and requests I made seriously, and did exactly what I asked. On our wedding day, we were blown away by everything else he added to the exerts we chose because he really understood our personalities, our relationship and the vibe that we were going for. The thought that he put into it all was outstanding, I could not have hoped for a better ceremony. At our ceremony, we could not have amplified music, so we had a vocalist and guitarist, and David worked very well with us and the performers to accomplish what we wanted. He was always available to answer all of my emails that I bombarded him with and replied every time within an hour, if not minutes. He is an absolute professional with a ton of knowledge in his industry.Sent on 01/12/2016
As for the MC/DJ side of David, he again exceeded our expectations with the love story that he began our reception with. He has both the bride and groom answer questions separately without reading the other person's and send them to him prior to the wedding. Prior to actually hearing it, I was skeptical about how it might come off corny, but that was not at all the case. He blended our two stories flawlessly. I think it allowed all of our guests to feel a more personal connection to our love story and of course, we all had a few laughs in there as well. Since David was also our officiant, we signed the marriage license during the reception in front of all of our guests, which was a great personal touch and different from any wedding I have been to. And while, we were very particular about the music we wanted played at our cocktail hour and reception, David did a great executing our vision and controlling the flow of the reception. After the wedding, one of the things we are being complimented on the most is the work of David as both an officiant and DJ, and specifically for his work on the love story!
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:Awww Devan and Cody I am so excited that you were both so pleased! You and your guests were fantastic and I'm so glad the Love Story touched you and the guests. I wish you both nothing but health and happiness in your new life together!
Kim · Married on 11/07/2015
David was a dream come true, the first time he talked to us we immediately knew he was the DJ for us. He explained all that he would do for us and everything was tailored to what we wanted; he made time for us whenever we wanted to add anything or make changes. One the day of, David knocked it out of the park! We got every song we asked for, but he was also the most wonderful MC, he kept things flowing before and during the ceremony and kept the reception moving so there was no "what is going on now" time. He checked in with my husband and I constantly, making sure we knew what was going on and what would be coming up next (which was very needed because I was in wedded bliss mode and would not have been able to focus on any of it!) The wedding guests danced from the first song to the very end of the night and David was able to play something for everyone. When you are looking at DJ's, invest in David. He will give you the personal touches you didn't know you needed and will make your wedding reception a PARTY! Thank you, David, it was a perfect night.Sent on 12/07/2015
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:Awww Tony and Kim this is a beautiful review from a beautiful couple. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day. I had a blast with you guys and your guests! Plus, anytime I get to play "Highway to Hell" right after you get pronounced man and wife is always a good time!! I wish you both the best in the rest of your life together!
Tara · Married on 06/27/2015
David was our DJ and EMCEE for our wedding in Pinetop, AZ last summer. We were putting off booking a DJ because we didn't really know what we wanted to go with in terms of band vs DJ and someone local to Pinetop or bring someone up from Phoenix. We are so glad that we met with David and booked him for our out of town wedding. We met with him once to go over booking, then a second time to go over the final wedding details. He is extremely professional and has the couples best interests at heart, which is something we found to be rare in some of or interviewing of other vendors. He recommended that when we meet with other DJs to ask "how they tell the story of how you met", when we did ask other DJ's they kind of stumbled on the question as though they had never heard of such a thing. The day of the wedding (15 minutes before the ceremony) it POURED down rain, we had zero backup plan for the event of flooding. David (as well as our other vendors) teamed up to come up with backup ideas of when we can make up the wedding. Ultimately my husband and I said that if (when) it stops raining we wanted to get married according to original plan. David was accommodating in moving his equipment to multiple locations around the venue to where the music could be best heard as well as to where it would be kept out of harms way. Everyone danced all night long and had an amazing time, the rain stopped and the play list was phenomenal as well as he was respectful in not playing any music that was on our do no play list and made a point of keeping in the themes of todays music and the music we wanted played most. He has since done a friends wedding and is doing another friend's wedding this coming September. We recommend him at every chance we get!Sent on 03/12/2016
David Hoyt Entertainment's reply:Tara, you and Andrew are amazing people! With all the rain you had every reason to react like your day was "ruined" but instead your joy shined through the entire day and we ended up having one amazing celebration! Thank you for being you. Your good natured spirit through everything let's me know that Andrew is one lucky dude and you two should be able to meet any obstacle that comes your way together, head-on and with a smile on your face.

David is a true professional. From first point of contact to days following the event could not possible to have found anyone better to fill the role of DJ. David goes above and beyond the call of duty to provide superior services to his clients. If you are in a close vacinity to David you would be silly not to hire him.Sent on 07/24/2015

I am proud to say that My husband and I are the first couple ever to be married by Mr. David Hoyt. At my wedding he played double duty. Not only did he officiate but be was also the DJ. He made my wedding sound so magical with music but he gave the perfect ceremony!.Sent on 01/03/2015
As on Officiant: He was poised, well spoken, and knew how to make us feel comfortable standing in front of everyone. He knew how to run the ceremony and timed everything perfectly. During the rehearsal, he balanced fun with getting everyone to remember everything and know their timing. He was a great at working with the vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page at the same time.
As a DJ: He was the best! During the ceremony he couldn’t man the dj booth of course but he had a lovely assistant played by his wife join us that day. She knew how to rock it lol. She made sure the songs started in the right places at the right times. At the reception, David made sure the difficult names were pronounced right, and made sure the music was on point at the right spot at the right time and on time. He announced our brunch service perfectly. David helped us play all our wedding games and made it fun for everyone. He kept with the vibe of the wedding and played the appropriate music for that vibe. He made sure the music was appropriate for the type of crowd we had. During the planning process, David guided us through the process and answered any and every question. He was very organized – you need that in any good vendor!
I would choose David Hoyt Entertainment without a doubt every time. If I have any other events that I need a DJ he is my first and only call.

We had a first dance remix where we did a crazy dance with our wedding party and I couldn't have asked for a better dance. He worked with us on making sure we had just what we wanted and everything was timed just right. Everyone at our wedding loved him. He made everything so personable. A lot of our wedding guests thought he was actually related to us. He really knew how to read the crowd and play a huge variety of music.

Dave helped make the most important day of our lives so beautiful and memorable. He was very helpful and had lots of suggestions and ideas for the layout of the reception, games to play, or songs to pick when we had no clue. He provided the perfect amount of energy to keep the party going as well as being personable with other guests. He followed through with every one of my requests, as well as a few my mother threw in on her own. Can't say enough about this wonderful man the extraordinary services he provides.
