DJ Briscoe a wedding must have!

Chris was an Incredible DJ for our multicultural wedding. Gave him a list of Latin must-plays and he had the crowd dancing until the very end. Met with us before the big day to go through our wedding day itinerary. Incredible gentleman + DJ to work with. He comes highly recommended!

Best Dj Ever!

Chris DJ'd our wedding at the end of June. We booked him about a year prior and he was amazing from start to finish! Doing multiple zoom calls with us to go over timeline, our vibe for the music we wanted and helping us make sure our sax player was all set up for our cocktail hour with speakers etc. He played such great music and did amazing mixes. Everyone loved him and a few of our guests ask for his details for their own weddings/parties! We highly recommend Chris for any wedding/party/function you might be having! Thanks again Chris, you're the best!

"Okay, after this song"

We recently got married in May 2023. My husband let me run with most of the planning, although he had one request, that he picked our DJ. Sure enough, shortly after the engagement we reached out to DJ Briscoe and from there, he led us into a party we didnt want to leave. DJ Briscoe was our man, we cannot thank him enough for all the help and guidance for our wedding day. Songs kept pumping and so many of our guests tried to leave, but one more song kept them staying, "okay after this song". Hit after hits, he had the crowd of all ages jamming until the very end. Truly a professional, respectful, energetic DJ, big hats and gratitude to the very great, DJ Briscoe!

Chris Delivered!

As a wedding planner, I've worked with a lot of DJs. Chris has long been one of my favourites because of his upbeat personality and warm energy. So when it came time to select a DJ for my own wedding, Chris was the obvious choice. We gave him a detailed list of musical styles that we liked and disliked, and told him we wanted the whole night to feel like a massive house party. Well let me tell you, Chris delivered! We had so much fun all night long! My only wish was that the party could have kept going until the sun came up, because it was that good! Thank you Chris for being such an integral and amazing part of our wedding day.

Had every guest on the dance floor!

Chris was awesome as our wedding DJ! During the planning phases he was professional and super easy to talk to. He provided microphones and speakers for our outdoor ceremony. From the pre-ceremony music, to cocktail hour, to dinner, to the late night dance party鈥e knew exactly how to read the room. He had all our guests up on the dance floor! I would definitely recommend him for your next event.

Nailed it!

Chris is incredible! Not only the nicest guy but just amazing at what he does. The dance floor at our wedding was packed the whole night. He knew how to play to the crowd, mixes songs perfectly and he didn't play any wedding cliches just like I asked hahaha! Thanks for everything Chris you rock!

Our dream DJ!

Chris made our wedding reception come to life! We could not have asked for a better dj to liven the party for us on our special day.
Chris was so personable and easy to work with, he took the lead on creating the playlist for our wedding and was incredible at reading the room and adjusting to what people were loving the most! He was so accommodating with song requests from our guests and always had a smile on his face. We got so many compliments from our gusts and the venue on how amazing Chris was and how much fun everyone had in the environment he created! Thank you Chris for all of your hard work, we appreciate you so much!

Fantastic DJ

We booked Chris for our wedding on October 7, 2021. We put him in a tough spot as our venue had in house speaker equipment but Chris was very easygoing and able to troubleshoot through equipment that wasn鈥檛 his own and accommodate for all our issues. He worked through a mix of our making and other great songs appropriate for the event. He made the Dance floor incredible, everyone was happy to be able to dance after all the COVID restrictions in place! 100% would recommend!

Boogie with Briscoe!

We loved working with Chris for our wedding. He is so professional and approachable. He met with us beforehand to get to know us as a couple and to discuss our vision for our wedding. From there, he was able to put together a wonderful curation of music that catered to everyone at our event. It was so much fun working with Chris and we certainly will be recommending him to our friends who are in the midst of planning their weddings.
