The Word on the Street
We wanted to thank you, again, for doing such a great job. We couldn't have been happier with the ceremony and the reception. We wanted to have a joyful evening and you provided a perfect soundtrack. We've received a number of compliments from our guests about the reception and I think a good time was had by all. We appreciated the "front-end" help too.
We booked Chris for our wedding in March 2016, and couldn’t have been any happier. Scheduling and logistics were east to work out, and he was punctual, courteous, professional, and a lot of fun. Chris worked with us ahead of time to get a sense of our taste in music and gather our specific requests. He has an expansive vinyl collection and did a great job of matching the music to the mood through the various phases of the evening (cocktail hour, dinner, cake-cutting, dancing). When it came time to dance, he did a great job of reading the crown and playing songs to keep people of all ages on the dance floor. When our guests had requests, he obtained them digitally quickly to keep everyone happy. The music volume was always appropriate for the space and setting. When the evening was through, he packed up everything quickly, being respectful of the venue and their closing time. We were worried about choosing a DJ, because that’s the only wedding vendor where you really don’t get an opportunity to sample their product / service before the big day. Chris put us at ease, and really helped make our wedding a fun and memorable time for us and our guests. Thanks Chris!
Chris was a fantastic DJ. He was always professional while providing advice and support throughout the planning process. The ceremony was outside and the remainder inside and he had no problem with the major changes in party location. The music was central to the ceremony of course, as well as background dinner music, the Dad-daughter / Mother-son dance and the cutting of the cake. Chris was incredibly flexible, had plenty available in his song library for requests from all ages of guests, and provided a fabulous dance party for all!
