Don was great. Very personable - engaged our guests to feel part of the party. We had an older crowd so it was tough to get them on the floor - but he managed to do it. We had a wonderful time.

Chris Wright was the DJ for our recent wedding and it honestly couldn’t have turned out any better. The DJ was an important choice for us: the photographers capture the emotion, but the DJ really frames the night and drives the experience. Because he had to know us to do this well, we spent a lot of time getting to know each other. Knowing that we were a two hour drive, he e-mailed, skyped, and spoke with us on the phone instead of requiring that we drive to Albany. When the date got closer, he met us to go over all of the details, but he worked around our schedule.
Ceremony: Chris was professional and prepared. He worked with our wedding day coordinator, museum coordinator, and catering director to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. For the pre-ceremony, we trusted his judgment as to what to what to play for our entering guests. For the ceremony, we knew what songs we wanted to play, but he also asked us lots of questions and gave his opinion where he thought that there could be an improvement. He was helpful, but not pushy.
Reception: We gave Chris a list of songs that we wanted to hear throughout the evening. We also told him he was free to insert additional songs that he thought would be good or would work well for the crowd. We also gave him three different songs that we wanted the wedding party to be introduced to (parents, friends, then us). He not only did this without a problem, but he gave personalized introductions that we requested for each member of the wedding party. After the introductions, he got everyone out of their seats and dancing before dinner. He was willing to work on our time-table - doing parent dances, couples dances, cake cutting etc... around our timeline. Once the formalities were over, the party really began - and I mean party! The entire night, people were out of their seats and dancing and many guests said "this is the best wedding I've ever been to." We would enthusiastically recommend Chris!

There are not words to convey the effect DJ Chris Wright had on my wedding -- without him, it would never have been as fun and successful! He provided incredible uplighting, professional DJing, and AMAZING MUSIC. To say he "got us" would be an understatement -- he played an under-the-radar song my husband has been in love with for years because he know we'd be into it. He was right.

Even though we were riskier in our choice of music, he had everyone, no matter their age, dancing the whole night -- which is all we asked of him! My wedding was fun and perfect and he played a huge part in that.

Chris was also incredibly available by phone and e-mail, which was important to me as an out-of-town bride. If you want a fun, effortless wedding, this is the DJ you should book!

A last note about how kind Chris was: a friend of mine is recently engaged but getting married in another part of the country, and Chris stayed around after the wedding to talk to him about how to choose a great dj. Class act.

We hired Chris Wright to DJ our wedding in upstate New York. We gave Chris about a 100 songs that we felt captured our taste in music. Chris gave us exactly what we wanted. Our guests danced all night! Everyone had such a great time. We would recommend Chris to anyone. Thank you for making our wedding the best party EVER! Christina & Jack

Chris was very professional and well-prepared in all phases of the planning process. He went out of his way to meet with us and discuss our scenario, when other DJs in the area were unprofessional, took an unduly-confident attitude, and acted inconvenienced in simple initial phone calls. (FYI – some DJs get offended if they know you're shopping around!). Chris didn't play like that! He listened and gave us what we wanted - respect and a SUPER fun reception.

His experience was evident in his ability to set the mood at different parts of the reception and get non-drunk people dancing.

He offered us freedom of choice in how we wanted the music and flow to be, offered an online planner, and even listened to my request to change our intro music just several hours pre-reception.

I'm one who never gives 5-star ratings to anyone, but Chris did so much for us and never slacked. I asked for a special dance song to be played that my wife and I would dance to, but it wasn't played. Not the end of the world, and I can't even justify giving him a lower rating for that small blip because he more than made up for it with a fun game that our audience was very engaged with. To top it off, he stayed an extra half hour after we decided to extend the reception, without complaint. Like I said, I really liked Chris and his professionalism, prompt response times (text, call, email) and flexibility, and hard work at his craft. He was detailed right down to the suit he wore.

He is quality and the proof is in the outcome - everyone commented on how much fun the reception was. I'm one of those guys who doesn't dance much and didn't think a wedding reception could be that fun, but it was awesome and I'm thankful we took the time to find Chris. Our reception was (without bias) the best I've been to.

Chris deserves your business. You deserve a party as fun as ours was. Thanks Chris! Stay in touch buddy!

Chris Wright was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding. We booked him about a year in advance just to make sure he was available for our day, because we heard good things about him through friends. Our caterer also said good words about him, so we were happy to lock him in for our day. We communicated with him over the course of the year, and he was always very quick to respond to our questions. He was very professional, was helpful in providing us with recommendations, and was very friendly and easy to speak with. Despite the day of our wedding feeling a little hectic and crazy due to hurricane Sandy hitting the northeast just a couple days before our wedding, Chris put us both at ease and the evening went off without a hitch! Thank you so much for helping make our day memorable and fun! We certainly will recommend you to any of our friends getting married in the area.
Sincerely,
Sheila and Shane

Discovery DJs of New York is the best!!!!!!

Chris Wright was incredible; he kept the dance floor packed and pumping with the best songs. Courtnie and I were dancing the night away, and Courtnie did not stop till the venue closed at 1:00 a.m.. Everyone enjoyed the musical sectionals and the awesome vibe Chris pushed out to the crowd. People are still calling us, in order to remark on how much fun the wedding was and how impressed they were with the DJ/Chris. We could not have made a better choice; Chris was great!!!! Chris truly made this a memorable night for us!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Again
