Working with Hank was amazing!! From the very beginning, he was reliable, organized, and professional. He was an excellent MC and worked with us to make sure every part of the wedding reception was perfect, from entrance to take-off! Not only did he provide excellent DJ and MC services, he was a huge part of making the wedding day the most magical day ever. The day of our May wedding brought 105+ heat, a dust storm, and a sudden monsoon, but Hank was stalwart through all the weather troubles. After the rain stopped, we went outside and had the best dance party I could have imagined. Every single one of my guests had an amazing time. Hank kept the party going even when everything felt like it was going to be a disaster, and it turned out to be the best night ever. Thanks, Hank!! More...

Hank was a super kind man, who took everything we brought him into consideration. He handled all of our requests with excellence and was a joy to work with! He desires to be as involved as you wish him to be and was just the type of personality we were hoping for in a DJ. He warmed up those in attendance well and kept them engaged with jokes, and games! He was also crucial to how our wedding ran on a timeline and was so great at directing those who attended on what was next for the night. The dance floor was SO FUN! Hank came through was a great order of dance and party songs for the group to go nuts to. He did a great job overall and we would recommend him to anyone! More...

Hank was amazing! I had previously seen him at a friend's wedding and he came highly recommended. He was very easy to communicate with leading up to our wedding and had everything ready to go day of, including some very last minute requests from my family. He was an excellent emcee and kept the party rolling. The price for the level of professionalism is unmatched. More...

Hank is very professional and loves what he does. He asks for music requests weeks before the DJ event. He is very open to requests as he is spinning (well that’s an old concept). At our holiday event he wore his Christmas sport coat and even brought a dancing elf with him. Thanks for making our event so much fun Hank! More...

We LOVE having Hank at our association events! He is organized, has great equipment and always arrives early. He plays and announces whatever lists and scripts we give him and picks the best music to go with the occasion. He looks like he is having fun too! I recommend him for your next event! More...

Hankster's Entertainment is amazing and very accommodating to all needs. Hank was a crowd favorite that keeps the attention and fun going. He hosted my Son's wedding at Hidden lake and went above and beyond. I would stop looking for a DJ and I highly recommend Hank for all your Music needs.

Hank did a very nice job at our wedding last week. He was there on time, easy to communicate with, and did a great job with the songs. We had a bilingual wedding and had both English and Spanish songs. Hank had no issues with switching between Spanish and English songs and kept the dance floor moving. Thanks Hank More...

Hank was a terrific DJ! I could not have asked for anyone better for my wedding. He was much more than just a DJ...he kept my Husband and I on track the whole night. Coming to find us when the next activity was taking place. Making sure that we had all the timing correct that we gave him before the wedding. If it wasn't for Hank, I don't know how we would have ever stayed on track lol The guests loved him, especially since they were able to request songs at the wedding. Everyone had a great time and I would highly recommend Hank for any wedding! Thank you Hank for making it a perfect wedding day! More...

We will recommend Hankster's Entertainment Service to everyone we know. Hank was fantastic. We gave him a list of songs for our wedding, the order he played them in was great. He was very interactive with us and our guests, he did not overdo it. It was a child friendly wedding and he was outstanding with the children. 3/4 of our guest complimented his service.

Hank was absolutely everything I was looking for in a wedding DJ - friendly, helpful, and amazingly affordable too! When we began my search for a wedding DJ, I was discouraged to say the least. Every DJ that we could find on the typical wedding websites (theknot, weddingwire, etc.) were all well beyond our budget and not at all what we were looking for - very chatty and insistent on playing typical crowd favorites rather than the music we wanted. Finding Hank was a blessing, and he was a dream to work with! Our reception was truly amazing - I couldn't have asked for anything more! Hank played all the songs we'd talked about - from dinner to dancing - and kept the entire evening moving along smoothly with scheduled events (cake cutting, bouquet/garter toss, etc.). The colored lighting was the perfect touch for the more upbeat songs, and everyone was out on the dance floor having a great time! I'm really not a dancer, but hearing Hank play all of our favorite songs I couldn't help but join in the fun with our guests! He really made our reception perfect - we could not be more pleased!

With the variety of ages we had to celebrate a 70th Birthday, it was important for our DJ to play music everyone would enjoy—Hank was spot on! We provided some music selections the VIP wanted to have played during the Cocktail Hour, through Dinner, and for some upbeat Dancing as the sun set; his mix worked out wonderfully. I received multiple compliments from guests on Hank’s selections and professionalism. With the outdoor venue, it was also important to have the right volume, and Hank created the exact mood we wanted to create. He was easy to work with, very responsive, prompt, and took requests in advance of the day and during the event. Great service at a terrific price—you can’t go wrong! I would highly recommend Hank’s services for your next event. "Thank you Hank!!" More...

Q&As

My music list is very extensive. I have tens of thousands of songs in my collection & counting. I've got whatever music you need for your event. You need a customized play list? Not a problem. I take requests so if you, your family or your guests are looking for a song you will never hear from me "Sorry, I don't have that song". If it's not in my collection I can download it from the Internet & have it ready within seconds. I don't complicate things. I make it easy for my customers.

I'm a traditional DJ. No gimmicks. I entertain but I don't 'steal the show'. The night of your event is about you, your families & your guests. It's not about me. I play music the way it was meant to be played & I play the music you want to hear.

Meeting & interacting with different people. Watching people dance to the music that is being played. Taking song requests & also playing a wide variety of music.

In my teenage years I wanted to get into broadcasting. When that didn't pan out I went into the Air Force. While I was there I started to DJ in a local bar in Austin, TX in 1981. When I got our of the Air Force I worked for 2 DJ companies & learned quote a bit & from there began my own DJ business in 1991.

Because I am a DJ that has good values, have been in the business for over 30 years, treats you with respect, listens to your needs, works with you EVERY step of the way of your event & most importantly I offer great value at one LOW rate.
