    Great experience for our wedding

    We had Vegas Entertainment for our wedding and have nothing but great things to say about them. When we were searching for a DJ there were so many options, however Chris seemed to be the best and responding and also had great rates. He quickly responded to our phone calls and emails and was able to customize what we wanted for the day. There were new songs that we wanted for our wedding and he was able to find them for us. We had Ryan for our DJ the day of and he did an awesome job. Would take all our requests and come check with us throughout the night to make sure we were happy with everything! We had the photo booth as well and it was a ton of fun for us and our guests! Would highly recommend this company!

    Amazing DJ

    We were connected with Vegas Entertainment through our wedding planner midway through our wedding planning process. We spoke with Chris at Vegas Entertainment leading up to the wedding. Chris was wonderful to work with and helped to ensure all the music was perfectly planned out for our whole day. Ryan worked our wedding and did a fantastic job connecting with us throughout the day and night to ensure everything was going well. He captured the vibe of our guests perfectly and kept everyone on the dance floor until the end of the night!

    Absolutely excellent on all fronts--would highly recommend!

    Vegas Entertainment was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! They were hands down the easiest vendor we had the pleasure of working with. Chris and his team were absolutely excellent! We postponed 4 times due to covid and they were always incredibly flexible and understanding. Communication was prompt; we loved that all the information was accessible and straightforward on the website; and the service on the day of was fantastic. We and our guests had an amazing time with DJ Devon. He was very attentive and nailed the vibe we were going for. He was great at getting our guests up and dancing. He even put up with some crazy requests from our cousins. We could not be more pleased with the overall experience. Thank you so much!

    You won’t find a DJ better than Chris from Vegas Entertainment.

    Chris was so fun and laid back to work with - we were very particular about our music and he made everything we wanted happen, starting with meeting with us to review our music spreadsheets, being super communicative and responsive throughout the whole process, executing our multiple playlists for both our small ceremony in 2021 and our full vow renewal and reception in 2022, and playing the right songs at the right time every single time during our celebrations. He was super flexible throughout countless COVID restriction changes, and it was amazing to know we never had to stress out about our music or worry that Chris would let us down. We never had to worry about Chris for a second. There’s nothing you can throw at him that he won’t be fazed about. Chris also mixed our first dance song (which was absolutely perfect), found some pretty obscure tunes for us, and provided some super cool and unique services like KARAOKE and cold sparklers that made our wedding unforgettable. He even found a rare karaoke version of our favourite song to make sure we had everything we needed. Chris will always be the DJ that I recommend to anyone for their event.

    Amazing Party DJ

    Vegas DJ service was easy to coordinate with - their pre-event documents and website to request and organize songs was easy to use! And as a result we had a packed dance floor throughout the night. Vegas DJ was professional and accommodating to moving our wedding date (thanks covid). It was clear they wanted to create a celebration! Having a packed dance floor and memorable music was a big priority for us and Vegas DJ delivered!

    July 9th 2022 Wedding

    Chris has been amazing to deal with, so flexible with my covid date change, and always promptly answered my emails. He called me when he said he would and also confirmed everything via phone call a week before the wedding. He did an EMS discount, which I thought was absolutely amazing because these days us paramedics can feel unappreciated!

    For my wedding, Cody was also so great to work with. Came on time, all the proper music at the proper times and set up so quietly and quickly. He was so flexible with me last minute shortening our first dance song and then phasing right into the party music. He kept the crowd going, took requests, and was such a good sport about my crazy bridesmaids hahaha.

    10/10 would use them for another event!

    Chris was always quick to respond to any questions. We loved that there was an itinerary to fill out so we were all on the same page throughout the day and the photobooth was alot of fun and talked about by our guests. They played all the songs we requested. Would def hire again.

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!
