Best, most reliable , and qualified DJ !
Chris was nothing short of amazing! My Husband and I got married in May of this year . We heard about Chris through family friends and we are so glad we did! He was quick to respond to our inquiry for a meeting to discuss our wedding and the specifics we had in mind . The initial meeting was a great time for him to get to know us and for us to get to know him. He asked thorough questions was very professional but friendly. For me and my husband he’s exactly what we needed and wanted out of a DJ. He has extensive knowledge in sound and song writing and mixing so I was filled with confidence that we had the best of the best . Come our wedding day Chris was punctual if not early. And was key to directing the flow of our reception as our MC and with the music . He also kept things spirited and lively for the dance floor and every single one of our guests had an amazing time! They even commented at what an amazing job he was doing . In short he was spectacular and I would recommend him every time for any event!Sent on 06/13/2021

Best DJ in the Biz
Chris seriously set the tone with the entire wedding and it was AMAZING! Everything went so smooth and he definitely got the crowd hyped and ready to celebrate. He knows the perfect music to play and he had EVERYONE out on the dance floor. A DJ will make or break your wedding and he definitely made our wedding a special one!Sent on 05/20/2021

Professional, fun and organized
Chris was so helpful and professional while working with us on our wedding. He helped us with the ceremony and reception, we played the shoe game and he came up with such fun and family-friendly questions. We will happily recommend Chris to to any of our friends and family if they need a DJ!Sent on 06/01/2021
