Chris of CJ Entertainment WOWED us in so many amazingly positive ways, and that's not easy to do. I totally see why they have all of those best of the best reviews. Not only were they loads of fun to work with, I must say that Chris is the most sharply dressed DJ I've ever known. Okay, to be perfectly frank, they were so much fun to work with that I didn't even mind the image of them coming in a tee; but when they busted out on the scene like a corporate head? Nice! We loved them and thank you them for making our party one that easily worked off 2000 calories per person! Partying with Chris is good for your health!

I worked with Chris before the wedding and Karl was our actual DJ. Chris was extremely helpful during the planning process. He helped me create a timeline and suggested when we do certain things. He edited our main songs and was very quick to respond to emails. Karl was the best DJ we could have asked for. He contacted me the week before the wedding to go over our timeline, names, and song choices. He approached my husband and I a few times the day of to alert us to when he would be making the next announcement and making sure we were enjoying the music he was playing. I cannot recommend them enough!

Our DJ, Karl, was so great at communicating with us throughout the night as to where we were in our schedule, when special songs were going to be played, etc. He was a pleasure to work with, and our guests LOVED the music! We tore up the dance floor all night, and had a great time! Thanks, C&J

The owner Chris is welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. He really took the time with me and went above and beyond to create my now husband and I's vision. I used their DJ and up-lighting for my wedding and everything was perfect. I went over every detail, Chris and DJ Matt listened to everything I wanted and executed it perfectly. My family had a great time dancing and my husband and I enjoyed every second. Thank you Chris for all of your hard work editing numerous of songs for our wedding! They turned out great! You will not be disappointed if you go with this entertainment service! The prices are affordable and the value is 5-star!

C&J provided a great service for our ceremony and reception music. We worked with Chris and Karl and both were great! Our meetings were with Chris in the C&J office - he provided us with a lot of good ideas and was flexible after we made changes and last minute additions. They are reasonably priced as well. Karl was our actual DJ and although we did not meet with him in advance, I spoke with him the week of to review the agenda, name pronunciations, requests, etc. He was upbeat and also made great recommendations. We would recommend C&J to anyone in the MD/DC area!

Such great service from this agency. We met with Chris in the office to set up music and the uplighting and then he had another DJ actually do our wedding. I'll admit, I was a little nervous because we had never met the DJ, but he was AWESOME! The dance floor was packed the entire time and everyone raved about how great the DJ was. I couldn't have been any happier :).

Chris Temple did a tremendous job as the DJ at our wedding and I would give him the highest recommendation. Leading into and planning the event, he was flexible, organized, detail-oriented and accommodating. He also likes to have fun and keep things loose during a stressful time. At the event, he was absolutely flawless. He stuck to the script, had everything planned out perfectly, gave us sound advice and kept the party going for the duration. Numerous guests approached us and said that he was the best wedding DJ that they ever had. I've been to a lot of weddings and I concur.

We had to find a DJ in a pinch since our original DJ didn't work out, and Chris was SO helpful and flexible, both with the time and our budget. Preparing the music list, schedule, and reception lighting was fun and straightforward, and the staff DJ who did our wedding was awesome!! The party was rockin and everyone had a great time. Totally wonderful experience.

Selecting C&J Entertainment was the best decision I made while planning my wedding...other than choosing to marry my new husband (so weird to call him that!) Jason. If you're a bride looking at different options like I was (dj? band? should I ask my fourth cousin who she had as a DJ at her wedding, that guy was decent right??) - book C&J and you won't regret it. I didn't realize how important a DJ was for a wedding - we met with Chris twice in person, and he is simply very good at what he does. During those meetings, he asked questions about things I didn't even think of beforehand (I was like I have a dress! I have a venue! I have cute Etsy decorations! what else do I need to plan?) - and Chris nailed down answers to questions like, who's walking your mothers down the aisle/what time to cut the cake/announcing the open seating arrangement/etc. He's a skilled professional. We ended up choosing Chris as our DJ (he did our outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music), because we liked him so much (Chris & Jason bonded over their shared musical tastes/Chris found a way to incorporate Jason's love of obscure indie music into the wedding in a way that I (being a top 40 queen) was happy with). And the most important thing I can say about Chris - our guests danced like we all just found out Brangelina randomly decided to financially sponsor our life choices. So many of our guests praised Chris' DJ skills. He read the crowd perfectly, and played the songs to keep everyone pumped and dancing. I can't recommend C&J high enough.
*his song editing skills are fabulous - including edits of piano music, Taylor Swift, Muse, and Van Morrison - word of advice, Taylor's hard to edit:)

Let me just begin by saying that initially we thought we could do our wedding reception music 'ourselves.' You know, with our laptop, our playlist, and the venue's house sound system. Luckily, we had a wedding coordinator that put us in touch with Chris Temple at
C & J Entertainment. I CRINGE to think about what our reception would've been like if we'd followed-through with that plan. Simply put, having Chris provide our reception entertainment was hands-down the best decision we made throughout the planning process. I'm sure all the DJs who work under him at C&J are good as well....but Chris is OUTSTANDING! Our guests absolutely LOVED him. He could read the crowd perfectly and kept the entire evening so fun. Also, I would be remiss if I didn't mention how great he was to work with during the planning stages. (He was literally like family as we were trying to layout the music selections and timeline for the evening, etc). He was so very helpful with suggestions, recommendations and ideas. He was ALWAYS available and eager to chat whenever we had any questions. I can't imagine our event without his expertise!!
