Staff Work Function
All went well on Saturday night with Hard to Beat
First Glass Wines and Spirits
Hard to Beat – fast Eddie was very good, nice guy as well
Our only problem was a late finish to our meal due to a medical drama so when Eddie started up most of the people were heading home
I am glad we did not have a $4,0000 band this year.
NZ International Wine Show
Yes everything went well, the DJ was great.
Thank you for the email.
We were very happy with the entertainment provided by Pete McGregor Entertainment for our wedding. All that Jazz set the tone for a great evening and then Eddie the DJ seamlessly took over when the band finished. We were delighted with both acts.
Thank you for your e-mail.
Eddie was brilliant! He was so accommodating when we were running a bit over time with our earlier act and then when he got started he got everyone up on the dance floor with a great selection of music. We all had a fabulous time and I would have no hesitation in booking Eddie again or recommending him to others.
Thank you again for your help!
Eddie was fantastic. Would recommend to anyone :-)
Wedding was totally awesum day.
Just wanted to let you know that Eddie from hard to Beat was great.
He did a great job of reading the crowd and we all had a great time.
I think a few staff members have sore feet today from all the dancing
Key Account Executive
Pacific Direct Line
Thanks so much – Eddie was great, just got on with the job was easy to work with and played what people wanted to hear. It wasn’t a massive night but he did an excellent job and I’d use you guys again if I need to.
Thanks again – please pass this message on to Eddie for me.

Yes Eddie was good thanks, no problems at all
Eddie was great! Listened to our requirements, played to the attendees and the best DeeJay we have had.
‘The Conference Team’
Eddie was absolutely fantastic! He was professional, prompt and had everyone on the dance floor for the entire night. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone and would hire him again for other events.
The day and evening were magical. A great day for us all.
Thanks for all you assistance in chosing a DJ for our wedding. Kept things very simple.
Congratulations on your own wedding last weekend. Trust it all went well!
Ours went great and Eddie was a total pro and made sure the evening flowed really well. We'd like to be able to recommend him (and your service) to others. What is Eddie's surname or do we just recommend "Hard to Beat DJ"?
lisa Kam wedding
Our DJ was awesome, we're delighted with how the evening went. He had everyone up dancing and we've had some great feedback.
Annual Cycle Xmas Function
Please pass on to Eddie a great big thanks! He was very professional from beginning to end and played all the music we asked him too. He went out of his way to help ensure all our needs were met, including the use of his cordless microphone for speeches. The dance floor was never empty. I can thoroughly recommend him!!!!!
Marie & Rob
Thank you very much for organising everything. Our wedding day went very well – we had a fantastic time. The music was a big part of the success of the day. Could you please pass on our thanks to Eddie.
Hi - wedding went great, Eddie did a fantastic job.
Thanks so much for your recommendation of Eddie.
We could not have been happier with the music he chose for our Aussie Theme Party. I received so many compliments from our guests about the great music! Eddie was friendly, reliable, efficient and organised and we would have no hesitation in using him again or recommending him to others. The night was a huge success. Thanks again.
Yes, thank you very much. We had an amazing day and all the acts were
fantastic. They really added to our special day.
Then, of course, the DJ Eddie added the perfect ending to the perfect day! He played all our requested
tracks, plus a few of his own favourites and the dance floor was a busy
place full of laughing and happy guests, all the way to midnight!
We have sent formal thank yous to you and the acts. please could you forward
the cards to the appropriate acts, as we do not have their individual
addresses. The envelope with these cards has been sent from the Cook Islands

Cath (Costello) wedding
We wish to say that we had a FANTASTIC time at Castaways for our daughter's wedding - the DJ was really great and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
We wish to thank you and particularly the DJ for the atmosphere he created and the music he played.
Joanna and Bruce Blomfield
Sorry for the delay in replying to your email. Both acts were very good and fitted in smoothly with the event (e.g. setting up, presentation, choice of music, etc). Also, the DJ coped very well with a couple of power outages in the marquee. Overall, it was the right mix of acts for the event. I would be grateful if you could pass our thanks on to each of them.
Yes - I was very happy with Hard to Beat Deejay. He was very good indeed. Thank you for arranging our entertainment - it was a good night had by all.
