    Chris Hollister should be your next DJ!

    Chris was incredible! Very professional and easy to work with. We had our first call and I felt excited to work with him. He definitely knows music and was able to provide recommendations based on our description of our guests. I did provide him a list of Must Play and Do Not Play and he followed the list very well while also adding in his flare. He had everyone on the dance floor all night long - I don't think I saw anyone sitting. My mom had so much fun that she did a split on the dancefloor! I originally had Shout on the do not play (idk why..) and I quickly decided I wanted to play Shout last minute, and he was flexible & added it to the list. He is overall such a kind, thoughtful, easy to work with person and his music and DJ skills were a huge hit!! He arrived promptly and actually played acoustic music for the first 30 mins before our ceremony as guests arrived. He covered our ceremony music, cocktail hour, and reception. It was lovely! I highly highly recommend him!

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鈥檛 take me long to learn a few key things about what makes Chris tick: he鈥檚 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鈥檝e 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!

I love reliving the fun when I edit the photos and seeing the smiles all the faces. Cant wait to work with him again!!
