Fun to work with, fabulous service

We are so glad to have used Chris from C&J Entertainment as the DJ for our wedding. From the first phone call, Chris demonstrated how knowledgeable and caring he and the rest of the company are. He took the time to get to know our musical preferences, which really showed during our conversations and on the big day. The night of our first phone call, he had already expertly cut three different versions of the song we had chosen as our first dance song, one of which was the one he played for us 13 months later.
While I know we could have left all the other musical choices in his hands, he was also very receptive when I wanted to compile my own playlists for different portions of the day. He provided guidance on the number of songs to play, when we should play slower songs, what kind of song we should use to start, say, the dance portion of the reception, etc. It was priceless to hear the songs we had carefully chosen play on our day. It was hugely cool of Chris to be that collaborative with us.
Throughout our phone calls and emails, Chris was always a great listener. He worked across me and our wedding coordinator very well. I never had to worry about him or the high quality of the services he provided. On the wedding day, he was just as friendly as ever and interacted with guests in the most awesome of ways.
I highly recommend C&J Entertainment, especially Chris. You’ll be happy you did!

Best dj ever!

He was an absolute superstar from start to finish. I'll admit, I was pretty anxious about finding the right DJ, knowing how much they can impact the atmosphere of a wedding. But Chris not only met but exceeded all our expectations, making our special day truly unforgettable.

During our outdoor ceremony, with a road right behind us, Chris worked his magic to ensure that every guest could hear us clearly. His attention to detail and proactive approach during the planning process was incredibly reassuring, especially for a meticulous bride like myself. If you're someone who sweats the small stuff, trust me, Chris is your guy!

When it came to the reception, Chris was nothing short of spectacular. He effortlessly played the exact songs we wanted, and to top it off, he kept checking in with us throughout the night to see if there was anything else he could do. It was no surprise that two couples approached us during the night, eager to get his contact details for their own weddings next year.

With his wealth of experience evident in his seamless professionalism, it's clear that Chris has handled countless weddings before ours. His expertise and finesse left us utterly impressed, and we can confidently say that every penny spent on his services was absolutely worth it.

Thank you, Chris, for making our wedding day an incredible, music-filled celebration. Your talent and professionalism truly set the tone for an unforgettable evening. We cannot recommend him highly enough to any couple looking for a DJ who will go above and beyond to make their wedding day perfect.

DJ, announcer, hype man

This was the best DJ/music experience I have ever had. We have received so many compliments on the playlist. And Chris was so easy to deal with. Chris is the best in the biz!
