The best of the best!

We own the venue and would choose no other DJ for our daughters wedding than the one we watch knock it out of the park EVERY TIME! Chris鈥檚 attention to the details (and not just on the dance floor!) and customer care was beyond our expectations and his ability to read the crowd and deliver the best experience is his super power! The party begins when Music Makes You Happy arrives!!

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!
