Hi Matthew, I just wanted to thank you for your participation in our Google Goes to Camp day. Everyone was very happy with the music you played and I will definitely hire you again when the time arises. Thanks.

Kevin M

Terrific evening - Tyler did an incredible job for us. We hope he enjoyed our performances as much as all of us loved the music. We are hoping to start a little earlier than 10 pm next year.

Lee D

So happy with how flexible and easy going Matt and his wife were! He had the dance floor going all evening and the cards for requests were such a unique idea! Thanks for making our night awesome!

Katryne M

Paul was amazing. Paul’s experience in the industry allowed him to know what the room needed. The night of the storm had me uncertain of how many people were coming. About 64 showed. The room buzzed of talking constantly. Paul's music choices added to the room. It was wonderful. Looking at booking for New Years.

Louise D

Matt did an amazing job being our MC and the music throughout cocktail and dinner was so perfect and right volume. The reception he had everyone up and dancing right from the beginning to end. He made our day perfect and such a freindly person to deal with. And the pricing for what you get is amazing.

Shannon M

Did an absolutely amazing job at our wedding. Was very professional, reliable and approachable. Would highly recommend for your event.

Hernan M

Matt from Hoddle Services did an excellent job, not just at our wedding, but at our Stag and Doe as well. He had our guests up and dancing all night long! There was a great mix of music, and all of our guests commented on how great of a job he did. He was also very flexible in getting the music to our outdoor ceremony site, and provided us with everything we needed to ensure that our guests could hear what we were saying. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for DJ! He did an amazing job!

Lauren M

Mike was great. He was very patient and flexible not only with our requests and guests but he handled the “uninvited guests” as well at our Christmas party. I was not worried about the other party guests but told Mike not to grant their requests as ours were more important. It wasn’t his fault at all. We will definitely use your services again if the opportunity comes up.

Katherine B

Hi Matt, just wanted to say thank you for Saturday at our Stag & Doe. Our guests have been telling us that they had a really good time and loved the DJ


We hosted a charity fundraiser on Feb 18th, 2017 in support of International Animal Rescue's Orangutan Project and Matt and Tanya from Hoddle Services were incredibly generous and offered us their DJ services. They were setup and ready to go before we even arrived and the music was great, something for everyone and all requests were played. Very professional , extremely kind and supportive people to work with us in supporting such an important cause. I would highly recommend their services; if you're in need of a DJ these guys are the best !!!

Patty C

I would HIGHLY recommend Hoddle Services. Very professional, great variety of music, and my guests had a blast with requesting their favourites. Thanks for making our big day go smoothly,

you were amazing!

Andrew & Holly C

Having Hoddle Services at my wedding was the best move I ever made! He knew how to read the crowd and get us moving on the dance floor. I loved every song he played for us and his playlist made sense with the evening. Also, he was a huge help with my ceremony with assisting with the audio and music ! BEST DAY EVER ! I will recommend his services for any event I have in the future.

Vanessa B

Hoddle Services has been the Disc Jockey for our Bowling League Banquet for New Hamburg Lanes for the past 9 years. Not only does he play great music, he takes requests ALL NIGHT LONG from our league participants. We always end up rebooking him again for the next year before the end of the night. Great job again Matt, and we would recommend your services anytime.

Marcella H

Matt was fantastic! We had a few mishaps during the night (completely unrelated to music) that got us a little off schedule, but Matt quickly adjusted and none of the guests knew we were running a little behind. I also received many comments from guests who loved that if there was a song that wasn't putting people in the mood to dance it was quickly changed out for another.

We truly had an amazing night, and we couldn't have done it without you.

Thank you so much!
