Making Music Memorable

Dedicated to creating for you, unforgettable moments through music.

Motiv Entertainment is essentially  me, I'm Vito, an experienced private event and club DJ and MC based in Ōtautahi Christchurch, New Zealand.

I recognise that the celebrations we are hired for, are really personal events and they require someone who can apply a personal approach to really bring out the vibe and energy you want for your special occasion. DJ's/ MC's are privileged enough to be able to witness some outstanding events and milestones - and  as such the way we provide our services should be personal, professional and match your expectations and vision.

Whether your event is a wedding, corporate event, or private party, we'll curate with and for you, the perfect playlist for your event.

Making music memorable.

About me

Being a DJ is the longest "job" I have ever had, if you can call it a job.

I've grown up around music. The son of a Samoan minister in Wellington, I was exposed to the keyboard, guitar and choirs from a young age.

Becoming a DJ in my teens, I've been lucky enough to play clubs around New Zealand and Australia. In Christchurch, I've been part of the local nightclub scene for a few years as a member of the ClubKingz DJ's and as resident DJ for venues like Cocopelli and One Bar at the Palms, The {Print Room (Ashburton), Richey's and the previously popular Baretta.

Aside from having been a DJ for more than half of my life, I also have a background in radio broadcasting, project management and communications. All seemingly a perfect mix of skills and experience to make for a great DJ and MC service - and it kinda does.

The one key thing about me is that I care about every event I am given the task of performing for - and as such, I am pretty meticulous about getting the details right so that I do an amazing job. This however means that I can only commit to a certain number of direct bookings per annum. When I am at my personal capacity - I refer all other bookings to DJ4You and you can book me through them.

More than Music

Ensuring you get the vibe you want and deserve is a lot more than just playing music.

I've also put a lot of thought and effort into not just how it all sounds, but how everything looks as well - and we've created a number of pretty unique appearance options that wont look out of place with the most elegant of events - and if you need me to, I'll rock a suit and tie as well.

Everything from the lighting, to the speakers, to the booth, have all been considered as part of a set-up that will not look out of place at your wedding or event.
