    During our time working with Chris Rice he was exceptional in that he went above and beyond for us. Chris was super helpful during our planning process. During our big day Chris mixed and mingled with our guests making sure that our guest were content and didn't need anything. Chris brought music to our ceremony at the beach along with microphones for our officiant. Chris took requests for songs and played them throughout the night. Chris also took into account our "do not play list" and ensured he cleared songs with myself and husband before he played them. Chris was phenomenal throughout our entire day and can't thank him enough for his time.

    Best Experience Ever

    Our day of coordinator recommended Chris and MMYH as our DJ as soon as we started looking. It was one of the best decisions we could have made. Chris ended up being the DJ for our wedding and was beyond helpful and professional. He made sure my brother (our Officiant), and our readers were all set up for the ceremony and that my Dad was good to go on his speech at the reception. We didn't give him a ton of direction with music but he played everything we could of wanted and the vibes were great the whole night. He was accommodating with some random special requests (like a birthday shout out) and made sure my husband and I had the best night. He even played a song during cocktail hour that we got to dance to before everyone came down for the reception, it was so memorable and special to us. We were overwhelmed with how awesome he made our day! 1000% recommend him!!!

Chris was a real pleasure to work with. We worked together on a relaxed, outdoor BBQ wedding at Hendry House in Arlington. He was very diligent about getting to the venue on time, despite the fact that entire roads had been washed away near his house thanks to Hurricane Matthew earlier in the week. He was easy to work with, and once we touched base before the event started, I didn't need to constantly check on him to make sure he knew what he was supposed to be doing next. He played a good set, and was able to read the crowd and play off their energy level. I recommend him to anyone looking to throw a great party!
