I first met Chris 4 years ago at my sister's wedding. He did a phenominal job!! He kept the party going all night, and everyone had a blast. I told him that night that when I got married, I would be calling him. Three years later, when my hubby proposed, he was the first person I called to book! My husband and I got married last month, and Chris was just as awesome as I remembered!! He is so much fun, and so easy to work with. He is helpful, professional, and helped make the most important night of our lives so memorable. If you are looking for someone who can keep a crowd happy and entertained, Chris is your guy!!Sent on 09/17/2012

Chris was the DJ at our wedding and he was amazing to work with. Chris is so personable and really took the time to get to know us before the wedding. He made sure everything ran on time and as it should. Chris even took pictures during the ceremony and reception that were priceless. Everyone had an amazing time and danced the entire night. Chris made sure to play all of our most important songs while also playing guests requests. We are so thankful he was able to DJ our day and we highly recommend him, he made our day extra special !Sent on 07/10/2019

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!!
