Kept the Party Going!

Devon was amazing, from the moment he arrived to the end of the night he was sure to remain engaged with the crowd! Devon was amazing at knowing when to play our must play songs, as well as kept the dance floor busy all night long! A few times throughout the night the crowd requested songs, Devon's ability to know when to play the song and read the crowd on the dance floor to keep our guests and us happy late into the night was exactly what we were looking for! Couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Devon was able to make our wedding party and dance floor dreams come true - highly recommend!

Wedding Dj

Everything about these guys were amazing. From the easy to use booking and communication to the DJ on the night of the wedding (Tyson) was amazing.
Tyson was able to play all the music and had everyone up and dancing. The smiles I saw on everyone’s face was worth everything. I would highly encourage everything to use these guys!

Best dance party ever!

Cody was the DJ at our wedding and we couldn't be happier with the entertainment he provided! He had us dancing all night, graciously accommodating many requests for many different types of music and making it all blend seamlessly. Chris was also a pleasure to work with on the back-end over the months leading up to our wedding. Thank you Vegas Entertainment for your part in the best day of our lives!

Great wedding, great music!

We couldn’t be happier with the service provided by Vegas Entertainment. Leading up to our wedding they were very responsive and helpful in preparing for the big day. The DJ was very skilled, organized and very fun to work with. They had a great set up and the Photo Booth was a big hit. We would highly recommend Vegas Entertainment for your wedding or any event where you want to bump the beats.

So glad we booked them!

Our DJ was great! He responded to all of my requests and adjusted our timeline as the night went on. He tried his best to get our guests dancing. It was a great price and I am so glad we chose to get a DJ for our wedding. It made it way more fun! Thank you!

Excellent DJ

Chris did an amazing job for us. He played a great selection of music, ran the show from the ceremony until the end of the night. He is very experienced and it shows.

The process from signing the contract to selecting music was very seamless and he has all the forms and documents to get you through this with low stress.

We hired him as a full service DJ, so he MC'd the show and he ran a scavenger hunt for us that was so much fun!! Ask him for details if you are interested, it was great to get our guests mixing and helped get the party started.

Go with Vegas Entertainment

My wife and I are very lucky to have chosen one of the best DJ/Emcee/Photobooth vendors in Calgary that is Vegas Entertainment. Everyone had a BLAST on our Wedding Reception at Hudson Downtown. I am in awe with how smooth everything went and with how Ryan, who was our DJ/Emcee, handled our reception amazingly. You should’ve seen how the dance floor was bussing during the dance party, the amount of guests who sang their hearts out at the karaoke, and the foot traffic at the photobooth (with props + print/digital option). The reception was a total hit and this wouldn’t have happened if Ryan and Chris Minor (owner of Vegas Entertainment) weren’t there. Ryan was calm and collected the whole time regardless of how many revisions we had to do (some parts of the program we skipped DURING the event). We had a fun time with him! Chris was exceptionally professional and skillful in the planning stage prior the event. Thank you Vegas Entertainment for helping our reception become a total success!

Music is such a wonderful part of of our lives. We could not have been happier with the DJ from Vegas entertainment. He played the right amount of our must plays and kept us all dancing all night. Floor was never empty. Thank you so much!

Meet the team

Christopher  Minor
Christopher Minor
Owner / DJ

Christopher Minor was born in Los Angeles, California and became a staple of the Southern California rave scene at the age of 17. In his late 20's he moved to Las Vegas where he spent 5 years Djing raves and clubs on the Las Vegas strip!

In the mid-2000's his journey then took him to Canada where he once again immersed himself in the rave scene. Up to this point, he had not once DJ'ed a wedding.

In 2007 he was asked by a girlfriend to Dj her friend's wedding. With no previous experience Chris dove into online playlists, forums, YouTube and anything else he could, to see how a wedding was done. Unfortunatly it wasn't enough. While not a complete trainwreck he understood that his skills were seriously lacking in this department so he joined a mobile DJ company and began doing nothing but weddings!

Chris quickly realized that there was no structure, no training, no protocols, and no best practices within this industry. All that was available was what DJs were willing to pass on to other DJs and no two DJs ever did anything the same way. This is where he got the idea to create a DJ training program, and it worked! Within a few months the revolving door of DJs within the company he worked at stopped. The quality became consistant, the reviews were pouring in and the company became known as the best DJ company in the city. Thus, the "Wedding DJ Handbook" was born.

With great power though, comes great responsibility and the company eventually began engaging in practices and moving in a direction that went against Chris's morals and ethics. No longer convinced that the company could provide the services they were promising clients, he did what most people in that situation would do; he created his own company, a different kind of DJ company.

Vegas Entertainment was built from the ground up based on a foundation of transparency, honesty, and integrity. Within the first year the company reached levels most companies don't see until well into their 5th or 6th year of business. It didn't take long for Chris to realize that it wasn't the programs or processes he had created that made clients and industry professionals want to work with him, it was his passion to the art, the culture and the industry.

Today Vegas Entertainment remains a small business focused on the 3 cores that it was originally founded. Chris insists on only doing a handful of shows a night to ensure quality, attention to detail, and a personal touch is given to each and every client and their event. To date he has not lost a single DJ that joined him when he started and he continues to DJ events personally without charging a single cent extra to do so!

Chris is also an outspoken activist within the industry advocating for DJs to get proper training and experience before attempting to DJ a wedding on their own and to stop the practice of outsourcing events to other DJ companies. Using weddings as training, or overbooking events then getting other companies to cover them are all too common practices within the industry that need to stop. Chris blogs on the website and facebook about all manners of Djing within the wedding industry not just to educate, but to raise the standards of the wedding industry too!
