Hands down the best!
Chris Rice with Music Makes You Happy Entertainment was amazing! Our wedding was supposed to be March 28, 2020 but because of COVID, two weeks before our original date, we had to postpone our wedding. When we notified Chris, he immediately asked if there was anything he could to do help with replanning. We picked a new date and Chris was available. He responded right away when I asked if he had the new date open. Chris provided us suggestions on what songs we could use and offered to make mash-up of songs if there were two we really liked! Day of the wedding, Chris rocked it! He was timely, professional and he even got my husband and I our favorite drinks right after the ceremony! His music selection kept everyone on the dance floor all night! Chris makes sure your wedding (or any type of event) runs smoothly and is exactly what you want! I 10/10 would recommend Music Makes You Happy Entertainment!Sent on 07/22/2020

We only recommend this DJ to everyone!
Chris was our amazing DJ! He went above and beyond with every detail about our wedding! Not only was he incredibly flexible with us considering COVID-19, and we booked with him under 90 days before our venue, he never made us feel rushed or pressured. All of his worksheets online helped prompt us to think of certain details throughout the reception and ceremony that we didn’t even know was an option. Chris was familiar with our venue at The Barns of Kanak, but he added his own personal touch the entire wedding. He had our officiant miccced up and ready to go very smoothly, he checked on us , the bride and groom during the reception many times for drinks or anything we could need. To top everything off, we ended up changing the “grand exit” time last minute to accommodate our guests going home early. So Chris announces the next song to play will be the last song before the exit, and our guests are enjoying the song but no ones really at the dance floor. Chris cuts the music, brings us, the bride and groom out in the middle of the dance floor, and has everyone circle us and asks everyone to sing at the top of their lungs to “Don't stop believing”! It was such a special and fun way to get everyone together one last time before we made our exit! Having that memory of all of our friends and family smiling at us and singing and raising their hands is something I have forever now. We really couldn’t have asked for more, and will ALWAYS, highly recommend this DJ company before any other!Sent on 07/28/2020

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!
Now this music will really make you happy! If you hire Music Makes You Happy Entertainment, the only time you'll be happier is when the honeymoon starts!!!!!
