Couldn't have asked for a better DJ!
Chris Rice was the perfect fit for our wedding and was a key player in making the day come together. He was the ideal balance of fun and meticulous, not to mention his radio voice! He understood how to entertain a crowd and how to deliver the experience we desired our guests to have. He did both the sound for our ceremony and reception, and was able to take a sampling of music we gave him to come up with a full playlist of songs that fit us.Sent on 01/15/2019
Chris made himself available every time we had questions or wanted help finding the perfect song for part of our day. He also had an excellent understanding of wedding timelines and helped us tremendously as we figured out what we wanted our day to look like. He was responsible and professional every step of the way. He was even committed to keeping our secrets! The bride wanted her first dance and father/daughter dance songs to be a surprise for her. She also planned to surprise her mother with a special dance between the two of them. Chris managed to keep all these secrets without forgetting any other important details throughout the day.
We were pleased to be able to work with the owner of this company directly, and after our experience with him, I’d recommend his business to anyone. If he puts as much thought and care into his company as he did our wedding, then I would vouch for any DJ that he makes part of his team.

Went above and beyond!
Chris from Music Makes You Happy was the absolute best! He was incredibly responsive to all of my questions throughout the planning process, and their online system was really easy to use! He picked the perfect combination of songs and at just the right time, including songs my guests requested and our must-plays. I can't say enough great things about his professionalism, responsiveness, MC skills, and musical talent! It is a real skill to manage the mood of the reception, and he did it perfectly! It's hard to impress a family full of musicians and he blew us all away!Sent on 07/16/2019

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!!!!!
