Could not have worked with a better DJ!
Planning a wedding during COVID was less than ideal. However, in choosing Chris as our DJ we were able to have a fantastic night with lots of fun regardless. I cannot say enough good things about working with him. From the time of first contact to the night of our event, Chris was professional, knowledgeable, easy to work with, and most importantly, flexible. We were unable to have dancing but Chris worked with us to develop ideas to keep the night moving and entertaining and took on more of an MC role. He also worked with us to pick music that was fitting for the evening (not too dance-focused but not boring either). If this is what Chris was like for a wedding during a pandemic, I can only imagine what he is able to do for weddings during normal times!Sent on 10/26/2020

Hollister Entertainment made our wedding perfect. Chris was easy to deal with and a great guy. Our wedding had to be rescheduled due to COVID and Chris was a big help to us! We would highly recommend Chris!!Sent on 10/04/2020

Chris is not only a great professional, he's a great personality... and isn't that what you want in your entertainer/DJ?? I love working with Chris... hire him and you won't be sorry!!
I first met DJ Chris Hollister of Hollister Entertainment when I was hired to photograph a pre-wedding party for a couple whose wedding I shot in Antigua. I was instantly taken by his genuine kindness and by the way he diligently insured that no special moments occurred during the party or out on the dancefloor unless I was right there, camera in hand, ready to shoot. It didn’t take me long to learn a few key things about what makes Chris tick: he’s fun-loving; he's a total people person; he is always one step behind the first person in sight who looks like they might need a hand (I’ve never shot a gig without him offering to carry my bags, help me breakdown my photobooth, or to grab me a coke from the bar to keep my energy level on high); and he knows how to get an entire room full of people on a dancefloor and keep them there all night. I have photographed many, many weddings over the last few years and I know firsthand that the DJ makes or breaks the success of a great reception. With Chris as your DJ, you're bound to have a reception that won't soon be forgotten!
We love working with Chris Hollister Entertainment. Chris is so much fun and brings the life to the party! The dance floor is always packed and full of energy which makes our job super easy! I love reliving the fun when I edit the photos and seeing the smiles all the faces. Cant wait to work with him again!!
