Chris does a fantastic job! He is very energetic and gets the party going! He works well with the timelines that I have prepared for both the ceremony and reception. As a planner/day of coordinator it is a great feeling knowing that the DJ is willing to work with the timeline already planned, but that he is also flexible and able to change when needed. Highly recommend!

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris this past weekend at a wedding at Twig's. He is prompt, professional, and an excellent DJ. He has a great reputation for a reason and I look forward to working with him again soon.
