Chris is absolutely amazing! I knew from the first phone interview, he was our guy! He exceeded our expectations! He played everything we wanted. He has great ideas to keep the guests on the dance floor. I was so nervous that no one would dance. The dance floor was packed the entire night. I would definitely use him again!! Thanks, Marcie

We used C & J Entertainment for our wedding DJ this past October and we can't say enough good things about them! Chris helped so much throughout the planning process. He not only helped with song choices, but answered all my questions regarding the timeline whether it was when to fit in the toasts or good options for cocktail hour music. Matt was our DJ and he did a phenomenal job the day of our wedding! Everything went so smoothly and our wedding guests continue to comment on how well he did with getting everyone involved. It was a huge dance party with everyone dancing - young and old! I highly recommend C & J Entertainment to any engaged couple looking for a professional, fun DJ service that will meet your individual preferences for your big day!

C&J Entertainment was easily the best vendor experience we had during the planning of our October 1, 2016 wedding! We went with C&J after a family member also had a positive experience with their wedding a year prior.

We worked with Chris to help organize the wedding. Chris obviously loves what he does, and he is so on top of everything! My husband and I met with Chris once face-to-face (about one year out) to have a consultation, and then we mainly contacted each other through email. His responses were always prompt, and sometimes, he would even respond to me within the hour, which was definitely not expected (but obviously appreciated!).

C&J also provided us with our uplights for our reception, which were chosen based on recommendations from Chris. Providing help with uplighting was actually the only phone call that I had with Chris. C&J were able to give us more uplights for an extremely reasonable price, more so than the few uplights our venue tried to sell us for more than double the price. The phone call lasted a while, but it was clear that Chris definitely wanted me to feel comfortable, and I knew we were in good hands. I never felt any stress at all in regards to the music or uplighting for our wedding!

Our DJ Matt was great for our wedding! It was clear he came prepared, and he was great a keeping the dance floor packed all night. Through C&J, we also booked a string trio for our ceremony, and they played beautifully and created a lovely and romantic atmosphere.

C&J is a great company that is willing to work with you, and they clearly want your day to be the best it can be. You will be hard-pressed to find a better entertainment company for their reasonable price!

When we were shopping around for DJs, we knew immediately that Chris from C&J Entertainment was our guy. His energy and enthusiasm hit us like a freight train as soon as he sat us down to walk through what an event with C&J would look like.

I had some initial concerns for our DJ-to-be, as our families are a transient folk. We had to please our Latin dancers, our Maryland punk rockers, and our New York crooners. We also thought it would be a great idea to have our friends and family request music that would get them up and dancing, but unfortunately friends and family did not deliver (think Hokey Pokey and 7 minute long John Denver tunes).

But even with so many varying music tastes and so many terrible song requests, Chris found a way to get everyone totally jazzed about the experience. He made working with him so much fun, recommended some great additions to engage guests, and helped us actualize the totally awesome ceremony and dance party we were hoping for. Chris was also not deterred when our Panamanian guests wanted to throw us a Carnival experience with crowns, masks, hats, glow sticks, and traditional street music. He had us all shakin'-it in a conga-line.

Our party of 170 had a heck of a party at the Baltimore Museum of Industry and C&J Entertainment was largely responsible for that. You won't regret working with them.

Chris Temple was our DJ for our August wedding at the Four Seasons. He was the best - professional, fun/easy to work with, flexible, and very experienced. The pre-planning process was very smooth - we met twice before the wedding to discuss music preferences and the flow of the wedding day. Chris has lots of song recommendations and can work with whatever you are able to tell him. He made some great song suggestions for each part of the night, many of which we ended up using. We also filled in the "do not play", "definitely play", etc. list in advance of the day. On our wedding day, Chris was amazing to work with - he was super flexible and easily adjusted to changing a few things around with the timeline when we realized we wanted to change the flow. For the music, he mixed his own choices with our choices flawlessly - we got tons of compliments that guests loved that he played oldies earlier in the night and transitioned more to Top 40 at the end, when it was mostly young people. I can't recommend Chris enough, he was fantastic!

Chris Temple was our DJ for our August wedding at the Four Seasons. He was the best - professional, fun/easy to work with, flexible, and very experienced. The pre-planning process was very smooth - we met twice before the wedding to discuss music preferences and the flow of the wedding day. Chris has lots of song recommendations and can work with whatever you are able to tell him. He made some great song suggestions for each part of the night, many of which we ended up using. We also filled in the "do not play", "definitely play", etc. list in advance of the day. On our wedding day, Chris was amazing to work with - he was super flexible and easily adjusted to changing a few things around with the timeline when we realized we wanted to change the flow. For the music, he mixed his own choices with our choices flawlessly - we got tons of compliments that guests loved that he played oldies earlier in the night and transitioned more to Top 40 at the end, when it was mostly young people. I can't recommend Chris enough, he was fantastic! Read less

Our dj acted both as a dj and as a wedding planner; that is, he kept everything moving effectively and efficiently. We could not have had a smooth wedding without him. Thanks so much.

C and J Entertainment did an excellent job as the DJ and lighting set up for our wedding ceremony and reception this past weekend (8/6/16)! We worked with Chris to plan the entire schedule, and Karl was our DJ for the event. Chris worked very closely with my husband and I to create a full schedule of events, and even cut our music for us to make sure it was perfect. On the day of, Karl was wonderful at helping us to stay on schedule and with coordinating with our event coordinator and other vendor. Not only did he play everything we wanted, but he also coordinated the whole event by introducing all our speakers, the bridal party, and all the reception events! It definitely gave me peace of mind to know that Karl would keep us on track. I highly recommend C and J Entertainment!

C&J Entertainment is hands down the best DJ in the Maryland area. I've been to a ton of weddings, & Chris Temple is an absolute professional. He had such great insight & recommendations for the flow of the wedding & was extremely helpful for keeping us on schedule during the reception. Chris was honestly like a DJ & wedding planner all in one! He went the extra mile to learn the pronunciations of our entire bridal party. He also did a great job playing everything that me and my groom wanted, which is really important.
