Our History

Elliott founded Hot Wax in 1985, though his career was ignited several years earlier while playing the lunch-hour tunes at his high school. He went on to officially learn the ropes at BCIT Radio Broadcasting and spun at various top lounges and clubs in the city. He's been in the business of getting people dancing for over 32 years, having personally performed at over 1500 events.

Hot Wax's success is built on our innovative approach to the DJ business, which includes a strong advertising component, constant upgrading of technology and a superior training program for our staff. Our commitment to serving our clients is unparalleled in a business that is often inconsistent.

By 2005, Hot Wax evolved into a family-run business as it teamed up with Ozzie who has lent her experience from past careers in the travel, tourism and hospitality industries, where she planned and managed hundreds of events for celebrities and business leaders.

Ozzie is currently on a quest to produce superior products in the DJ market place. Hot Wax is a great example of Ozzie’s determination and will to create a DJ company that reaches markets beyond the wedding crowds. An avid networker and volunteer, Ozzie currently sits on the Board as a Director for the Better Business Bureau.

When you choose to work with Hot Wax Entertainment, you gain a team. It’s not just the DJ you get to work with for the 5-8 hours of your event, it’s the team behind the scenes that help you execute a flawless event.​
