Chris Philips recently deejayed our wedding and reception- he did a great job! Our guests ranged in ages from 30 to 90, so finding middle ground with music for that group was probably tough... but he did it! People were out on the dance floor all night!

Chris worked with us from the beginning in helping to create our special day- he created an online forum for us to edit our play list, a 'do not play list', specific songs for dances list, etc. On the website, there are also lists that you look at for ideas- the "most popular" song lists (which we found to be helpful!).

Literally, several days before the wedding, we made another song change, and Chris was on it. I was worried that with all of our emails and conversations back and forth (indecisiveness on our part about songs!), that surely, one of the wrong songs would get played....but it didn't!!

Chris was able to keep the night moving- he had everything perfectly timed out so the guests never got bored. We used Chris' recommendations for the 'order of operations' for the night- and it worked great. He obviously in VERY experienced and knows how to best organize the evening.

Chris Phillips was hands down one of the easiest vendors to work with on our big day, words cannot express how happy we were with his service, overall presence and how great of a guy he is. From the start, Chris worked with my fiance and I to fit within our budget and to make our special day everything we envisioned. A couple days before the wedding, he met us close to where we live for a run-down of the day. He asked all the right questions, LISTENED to what we liked, disliked and made sure he covered all the things we never even thought about. I didn't want an over-the-top, cheesy DJ - Chris was definitely not either of those things, he was everything we wanted in a DJ. His music selection was awesome, he guided the ceremony, reception and everything in-between flawlessly. Also, the lighting was ON POINT! It was exactly what we wanted and it looked magical at the Half Moone. THANK YOU, Chris - We would recommend you to anyone, keep doing what you're doing and we are so happy you were apart of our big day!

We are so happy we chose Chris to DJ our wedding! He was so easygoing and nice throughout the whole process. My husband was unable to help with a lot of the wedding planning so he was very happy with the user-friendly website to add songs we wanted played at the wedding. The website was so organized and easy to add information for the whole reception (and ceremony). There was one or two songs that we were unable to find on his song list and he responded to my e-mail almost immediately and added those songs for us. As for our ceremony and reception Chris did an amazing job! The ceremony music was perfect and He had everyone dancing on the floor within minutes of the reception and we had a packed dance floor the entire night! Thanks so much for all of your amazing work, Chris!!!

Wow! I am so glad we were able to work with DJ on the Side for our wedding. Chris (the owner) is incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the planning process. Our DJ was Mike and he did an amazing job during our reception. He helped the evening progress, but always in a way that was natural. He kept the dance floor packed the whole evening. We had an in-person meeting with Mike about a month before our wedding where we discussed all of the details. He made suggestions for our playlist and made sure our timeline made sense. My husband mentioned to Mike during this meeting that he desperately wanted to dance to My Heart Will Go On, but I wasn't sold. At the end of our reception, after our selected last dance, Mike surprised us all by playing My Heart Will Go On for my husband and it made for the most epic last dance. I was so amazed that he remembered this brief detail. He truly created a memory for us that we will always cherish! I absolutely recommend DJ on the Side!

Chris did a phenomenal job Dj'ing our wedding! He is very professional but knows how to get everyone up and dancing! My husband and I loved working with him and he even made us our own song mix for a fun dance that we choreographed. He is extremely talented and can make everyone at your wedding happy and entertained. We were beyond thrilled with DJ on the Side :)

Chris was our DJ and he was absolutely PHENOMENAL! We interviewed a bunch of DJs before we found Chris, but once we spoke with him, we knew immediately we wanted him to MC our wedding. He proved to be a great choice! He provided the perfect balance of announcements and music. He encouraged people to get on the dance floor without being over-the-top. He led our entire wedding based on the timeline we provided and he was able to adjust when needed, working extremely well with all our vendors. We didn't have to think about a thing on the day of our wedding, and we didn't even have a wedding planner! We chatted via phone and email a few times before the wedding and his planning website was very easy to use. We would recommend his DJ services to anyone! We wish we could rate more than 5 stars! He has a great, positive personality to boot. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! Go with DJ On the Side!

Chris was absolutely wonderful to work with. I knew upon meeting him for the first time that I wanted him to be my DJ. He was very easy to get along with, laid back and just wanted to make sure you were happy and everything turned out how you wanted it. He quickly responded to any emails I sent him. I loved the fact that he met with me and my parents before the wedding to go over all the details to ensure everything was correct and to work out any details. At the wedding he made sure the atmosphere always stayed upbeat and fun and he also made sure that the music was never too loud. Everyone loved his DJ skills and had a great time! I'll definitely recommend him to others!

Chris is hands down the BEST dj out there. I spoke with a few different djs before finding DJ on the Side Entertainment and after the first time I spoke with Chris, I knew he was going to be great! We had an interfaith Jewish/Christian wedding and told Chris we wanted everyone on the dance floor the entire time. He did just that and more! Chris was very familiar with the Jewish traditions and helped our wedding reception flow very smoothly. Chris also has the BEST stage voice and helped us ensure we played music for all ages, but still kept everyone dancing! I would highly recommend Chris to everyone. If you hire Chris as your dj it will be one less thing you have to worry about :)

We had Chris Phillips as our DJ from DJ on the Side and he did an absolute amazing job!! We loved the music played and he did perfect with any announcements we needed and with keeping the party going. Three days before our wedding I found out that the harpist that we had contracted to do our ceremony "misplaced" our contract and was not going to be able to perform our ceremony due to a scheduling conflict. I called Chris and right away he told me not to worry or stress, that he could cover us no problem. He instantly took away all of the stress that had come over me upon finding out about the harpist. I will forever be grateful to him for that. I would highly recommend DJ on the Side for any party or reception, they will no doubt do an awesome job!
