    Zoom Wedding Reception a big success!

    Chris listened to us and really understood the dynamtics of our varied wedding guests and managed please all generations and musical tastes. Chris is charming, fun loving and worth every penny! We had a zoom wedding reception and worried that it would be stitled and awkaward. Chris magically created a flow that had everyone at ease (even the bride) and ready to celebrate from their living rooms!

    Amazing DJ if you want a good party!

    We hired Chris for our wedding on October 11 2019 and he exceeded all of our expectations! He DJ’d and MC’d our entire wedding reception and did a fantastic job. He managed to keep the party going and everyone dancing all night, while still taking lots of requests. We had numerous compliments on the music and the party from all of our guests! I would hire Chris again in a heartbeat for any event, he is a true professional!

    Custom to fit any event!

    Chris has done several art opening events and birthday parties I have attended and he is top notch! He really caters the music to suit the audience and the feel of the room. This is exactly why you hire a DJ. Chris is your man.

    Briscoe Music - October 13, 2018

    Chris was the DJ for our wedding on October 13, 2018. We wanted Chris to be our DJ because of how much fun we have at Fynn's of Temple Bar, which he also DJs at. We were so happy to have him at our wedding.

    We sent through all the important songs (ceremony, first dances, etc.) and obviously there were no issues. Chris even announced the wedding party into the reception for us as our MC was one of the groomsmen, and did an awesome job.

    Our venue was fairly new as far as weddings were concerned, and there had been some feedback that because of the venue (high ceilings, brick, etc.) that the sound had not been great. Chris rented out a couple additional speakers for us, and the sound was incredible, not only the music but especially for the speeches.

    He played all the songs we wanted to hear, and the dance floor was lively all night. Chris is an excellent, dedicated, professional DJ, and any wedding or event would be lucky to have him be a part of their special day.

    BEST guy - and will dress better than your groomsmen! ;)

    Chris was phenomenal at our wedding! He was recommended to us by a friend and we booked him without even meeting him first - best decision. He did not disappoint! Was very easy to communicate with, met me for coffee prior to wedding to discuss our plans, showed up on time (early even!) and was just so pleasant to deal with. He brought professional equipment, and even rented a lapel mic for us for our officiant - it was so kind of him to offer to help us like that. He completely understood the vibe we were looking for at dinner and nailed it. He put up with our 6 nieces and nephews making "requests" every 5 seconds and charmed them as well as other guests. Despite the fact that our guest list was small, he still managed to create a great party atmosphere on our dance floor. And best of all - he showed up dressed to kill, with a sweet bowtie and hat to upstage our groomsmen :) You wont go wrong with Chris - hire him now!
