    Top DJ in Victoria

    We were so fortunate to have Chris at our wedding. He provided ALL our music needs. Ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He also made sure we had mics and speakers for the speeches during dinner. Nothing short of full service with Chris. Having him as our DJ meant that was one less thing we had to worry about. With very little guidance he struck the right vibe and kept the dance floor full all night. Incredibly personable and responsive – Chris should be everyone’s top choice. Thank you, Chris.

    Chris Poynter is an amazing DJ! We knew there were 3 things we could not spare expense on and that was food, photographer, and music! Chris is worth every penny (he ACTUALLY DJs, people! Doesn't just hit "play" on a playlist).
    We hired him for our wedding Thanksgiving weekend 2017 in Victoria, BC and found him very professional, friendly, and prompt in his responses.
    On the day of, his setup and cleanup were swift and on time. During the entire evening he read the mood well and changed the music accordingly, transitioned between songs so there was never a quiet moment (except when it was needed), read cues really well, and went above and beyond just playing and helped out with some music for some of our speeches as well as our other events.
    There is absolutely nothing that we did not like about him or his service, and would 100% recommend.

    We had the pleasure of having Chris DJ our wedding last week.A good dancefloor at a wedding can make all the difference, and Chris killed it! The Dancefloor was never empty, the music was on "Poynt", and he had an uncanny ability to read the crowd and contiously play favorite after favorite! From the get go, Chris was professional and easy to work with. He came prepared with all his own equipment and lights which really help set that dancing atmosphere that you want at a wedding. We had multiple guests tell us they were sore for days from dancing all night! We genuinely couldn't be more happy with Chris' services. If you're planning a wedding and the DJ is still on your list, do yourself a favor and call Chris! Just cross your fingers he's still available!

    We were lucky enough to snag Chris for our August long weekend wedding. Boy, he did not disappoint! Just look at all the other reviews - he definitely lived up to our expectations. Despite our venue limitations with the haze machine, Chris got the party going all night and everyone loved the music. He was in sync with our MC and even came to the rescue when the slideshow at our wedding wasn't playing music properly (slideshow was using the venue speakers, he somehow connected it to his system and it worked, yay!)
    I highly recommend Chris! He's so professional, very friendly, and personable! 5 stars. P.S. He uploaded a video of our wedding dance floor and it definitely looked like a nightclub, haha!

    Wedding sept 2016

    Chris was the dj for my September 17th wedding. One thing i noticed was how quickly he responded when i had questions throughout the process of planning. He played songs that were requested as well as those from a list I gave and kept the party moving. He was fun and super easygoing!
