Chris Sawyer is without a doubt the best Disc Jockey on the planet. Chris is a professional in every sense of the word. It is so refreshing to deal with someone who LISTENED and followed through with all of my requests. His warmth, great personality, and state-of-the art equipment resulted in a perfect ten function for not only myself but for my guests as well.
DJ Chris reached out to us, and offered us a deal we couldn't refuse. He was very professional and responsive which was great! My only concern was when it came down to the wire, some things made me a little concerned. On our introductions list he had my maiden name for introductions instead our my new name, this did not effect the big day luckily and he got it right. When it came time to dancing, he did play the wrong song after our first dance, which I had to give him a look and mouth "wrong song" which he then switched it, no one noticed really, but I did. Also the only other thing that bothered me was when I was having my first dance with my father, halfway thru the song he invited everyone out to the dance floor, when we weren't quite done having our moment. That annoyed me.
Overall he did a good job with the ceremony music and introductions, Luckily for this online forum and planning tools I had sent him two pages worth of music to choose from so it was kind of hard to mess that up. I did make a list of DO NOT PLAY songs as well, which helps a lot too. The dance party was awesome and everyone loved the music.
DJ Chris was amazing to work with! From the first interview, he was professional and easy to communicate with. Out of all of the other DJ's we e-mailed, DJ Chris was the only one to reach out via text as well as e-mail, so he was reachable anytime. He played a great collection of music, and was very personable to the guests. DJ Chris made our wedding one big dance party, and I spent a lot of time on the dance floor, even though I am on crutches. My wife and I would recommend DJ Chris to anyone looking for a DJ that is the perfect mix of professional and easy going!
Chris did great, we had a wonderful wedding and the music was perfect. He mic'd our officiant which was very helpful and also did a great job as the MC. Highly recommend, he offers a great service at a good value.

He is very responsive and organized we plugged everything we wanted into the website along with special requests and he played them all. Thank you Chris for your professionalism you made our event perfect!

Chris was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. I found the DJ research process incredibly difficult, and talked to several. I felt like many jumped to talking about uplighting and add-ons, which I didn't really need and it overwhelmed me. Chris instantly listened to what we were looking for, which was a party. Most of our guests were friends our age (25-35) and so we wanted to keep the music upbeat, relatively modern, with some good throwbacks for people to sing along to. It was important to me that all music played was well-loved music. We had our guests fill out a song on their RSVP cards that would get them up on the dance floor, and I sent along all the suggestions to Chris, who used them to help shape our night. He was super easy-going, listened to what we wanted to hear and what we DID NOT want to hear, and the music just flowed. He read the floor very, very well. I had nightmares about no one dancing, and thankfully those were unfounded! People were up and dancing all night. He helped me find instrumentals of songs I wanted for our ceremony, gave suggestions, and intuitively cut our first dance song down a little bit, which I had wanted him to do but forgot to tell him. He was super quick with his responses, and pretty much always available if I had questions. I know this is said a lot, but we got a ton of compliments on the music and people are still talking about it! Your wedding DJ is an INCREDIBLY important part of your day, so do your research, and figure out what matters most to you! Chris checked off all our boxes, and I'm so happy we hired him!
Chris was awesome!! We had such a great time and he kept everyone dancing and made sure everyone was having a blast!!
Chris is every brides dream DJ, he's extremely easy to work with. He is very prompt at returning texts,emails and calls. The tools he provides make it easy to choose songs, set up timelines and organize events throughout your wedding as well as a great eye for up lighting and detail (bouquet toss, dances, cake cutting). His friendly character and warm smile make it very easy for people to approach him and ask for requests with ease. All around a great guy, great company and great professionalism. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for stress free, best quality entertainment.
Chris was great! He was very responsive and thorough throughout the whole process from hire to wedding night. He took song requests in stride and the music played had everyone dancing! The only thing I wish would've been different was the spacing of time between the daughter & father dance to the mother & son dance and the mother/son dance started too quickly after the daughter/father and some time was lost. Overall, though, excellent! He even took a special pre-request from my mom for her and my father which was really sweet. We were told by the hotel staff how awesome the music was the next morning! The uplighting looked amazing too! Thanks Chris for a great night!
Chris was a great DJ! He was easy to work with and was able to provide all of the songs that we requested for our wedding (even the obscure and much lesser known ones that we selected). We were even able to plug into his audio in order to record the speeches during the reception. My husband and I highly recommend hiring Chris for your special day (or any other event)!
Chris was great to work with! He responded very quickly to any questions or communication we had with him, set up a time to meet with us while we were planning our wedding, and was very open to hearing our ideas and the type of music/key-wedding-moments we wanted to play.
