    Best DJ Ever.....

    Chris from Vegas Entertainment exceeded all expectations. He had been recommended to me by our wedding planner so I already thought he'd be good. Selecting music is not my forte, so I wrote him an email giving him complete control to keep the party going. Chris was always super responsive with email, phone calls, and text messaging. Chris really knew how to get the crowd dancing, and his transitions were smooth and unnoticeable. My wife and I both had a blast! That's Chris in the photo attached, thank you again for everything Chris and Vegas Entertainment.

    Wedding DJ and Photobooth

    Vegas did a great job DJing our wedding! They checked in with us periodically throughout the night to make sure everything was going how we wanted to. The online planning tool was also super helpful and the photo booth was a huge hit with our guests!

    Chris was our wedding DJ and provided a photo booth, everything was fantastic from communication to execution. He had the crowd loving the music all night, from early 20's to late 70's, highly recommend their services for the price and reading the crows

    Best DJ ever

    Chris is a blast! He is honestly one of the most easy to work with vendors I worked with! He was flexible and super understanding when COVID hit and we had to postpone our wedding. I also really appreciate how he is straight-forward with his pricing, as most other DJ's like to save the price details until after they've secured your business. Chris also offers wicked incentives for emergency responders and military personnel, which we were fortunate to be able to use. 10/10 recommend

    It's not a wedding without Vegas Entertainment!

    My husband and I had an amazing experience with Vegas Entertainment! We hired them for our wedding recently and we found them incredibly reliable, competitive prices, flexible with changes and did an amazing job on the day of the wedding. I was a bit hesitant at the start because I didn't see a lot of reviews online but I'm SO glad that we picked these guys! I would also definitely recommend getting the photo booth add on. Everyone had a ton of fun with it!

    Excellent!

    Our guests really enjoyed the vibe of the DJ - he played nice mellow music while we dined and mingled, and then had a fantastic playlist for the dance part of the evening! The photobooth was a great addition!

    Wedding DJ & Photo Booth - Amazing!

    Vegas Entertainment was absolutely incredible! We booked Chris kind of last minute and he was amazing to work with. He touched base with us to chat about music and our guests music and made everything super easy. The day of our event could not have gone smoother. I had zero issues, everything went super smooth for the ceremony. Once drinks and dancing started, Chris and Nadine kept the dancefloor full all night. He read the room, kept it going and even had some hilarious games to play. We opted for the photo booth as well which was a huge hit! We could not have been happier with them and highly recommend!

    AMAZING DJ & Photobooth Services!!

    We are so happy we booked Vegas Entertainment! We had to change our package to decrease then increase back up our hours due to all the changes with COVID and Chris was more than accommodating! He was quick to respond, and always willing to help out and be flexible. Not only were they great to deal with during the planning process of our wedding, but on the day of our wedding, WOW!!!! We had a wedding of 16 people and they kept the dance floor going! They were able to read the crowd and cater to their taste and we could not be happier with the service we got. We also got the photobooth and it was great fun! We all popped into and out of the dance floor and photobooth all night long. I highly recommend Vegas Entertainment for all your DJ and photobooth needs!

    Flexible and Easy Going

    Chris was a pleasure to work with. He was able to narrow down exactly the experience we were going for and was very flexible with all the last minute covid changes.

    Chris is amazing!
    On Que, huge inventory of songs and if he doesn't have one in his list- just ask.
    You will not be disappointed- his photo booth is so much fun and guests just loved it.

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!
