Your event is in 'sound' hands with Madhatter Entertainment! We booked Madhatter for our daughter's wedding held on Aug. 29, 2021 and couldn't have been more pleased with hiring this company to DJ the music and announce throughout the evening. From the onset, DJ Chad: - responded to all of our correspondence, quickly and politely. - he was professional, yet laid back and made us and our guests feel very relaxed, providing a 'good time' while keeping the evening on track. - he stuck to OUR song list and added in appropriate songs according to our style of song choice and didn't go off the rails as I've heard nightmare stories of other DJ's doing. - he was comfortable to work with, having great communication/people skills and was open to our suggestions. At all times he put our desires as top priority . I'd say customer satisfaction is primary for this company. - also, the value for your money is over the top! It's very obvious that DJ Chad of Madhatter Entertainment is very enthusiastic and passionate about his work. He delivers a high quality, enjoyable experience for his customers and their guests. You can be confident in Booking Madhatter Entertainment for your next event. I'm so glad we did and you will be also! Donna Hayden

Chad is an absolute pleasure to work with and comes highly recommended by someone (me) that has literally hired thousands of DJs!

We couldn't have asked for a better DJ than Chad. He took time to meet with us prior to the wedding to get a feel for each other, listened to all of my requests, and during a dress mishap that kept me in the bathroom getting fixed up for a while, he took the reigns and made sure my guests were having fun and started playing the fun party music to get them up and dancing! He was truly a blessing and I would HIGHLY recommend him.

DJ Chad was excellent, he came early and he was great to work with. He knew exactly how to run the wedding reception and played music that we loved!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I'm a music lover and have been forever. I like being part of people's big events and making it a great day/night for all parties involved.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Weddings, Proms, School Dances, Holiday Parties, Anniversary and Birthday parties.....really just about any type of event you can imagine a DJ would be great at!

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Ask questions and ask for references from DJs if you aren't comfortable. Get pricing info, but also remember that pricing is NOT everything. DJs should NOT charge you for set up time, tear down time, etc.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
