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!

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!

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 :)

DJ on the Side was recommended to me from a friend who had a wonderful experience with them! Chris (owner) was incredibly responsive throughout the entire process. Their website is so easy to use! I was able to just go in and add songs when I thought about it or when I had time. I met with my DJ, Mike Liggins, the week of the wedding to finalize the details and review the timeline for the day. Mike was a true professional and alleviated all my concerns. He also worked with one of our speech givers to coordinate accompanying music for his speech (which was hilarious and perfectly timed!). He played outstanding music during the cocktail hour and dinner. Once it was time to get the party started, Mike played an awesome mix of music that resulted in all of our guests dancing at some point throughout the night! He and his wife were an outstanding team and they were just lovely to work with. I have already recommended them to others and will continue to do so! Thank you to the DJ on the side team for a wonderful experience!

My husband and I used Ed McAndrews for our wedding reception last October and he did a great job! He kept the crowd engaged and dancing all night, but didn't steal the show. He was very communicative and friendly during the whole process.

Chris from DJ on the Side provided wonderful entertainment for our August 2014 wedding. We met with Chris in person and by phone multiple times before the wedding. He took his time to understand exactly what type of atmosphere we wanted and it was perfect. All of our guests said that we had the best DJ they've ever heard. They loved how it appealed to everyone. The rave reviews have been non-stop and we have Chris to thank. I couldn't have been more pleased with his professionalism, flexibility, and responsiveness.

From our first conversation with Ryan, we knew that we were in good hands. Everything in dealing with DJ On the Side was made easy (online payment, online planning forms--song requests, timelines, etc) from an administrative standpoint, but Ryan went above and beyond. We Skyped with Ryan a few weeks before our wedding, because we don't live in the area, and he went over everything from start to finish and then back again to make sure he had everything right (including asking for pronunciations of all the names, etc). We could not have felt more at ease. And, the night of the wedding--well, let's just say it was a dance party for the ages. We felt comfortable that Ryan understood what "vibe" we were going for during the reception, when we described it to him before the wedding, but he blew us (and all of our guests) away. He kept it simple and straightforward (per our request) and kept everyone (old & young) on the dance floor for hours! I've been to weddings with sub-par DJ's and I know that they are worth their weight in gold, so do not hesitate for one second in booking Ryan at DJ on the Side.

I didn't realize how important a good DJ was until we started working with DJ on the Side (specifically Ryan). He was wonderful to work with. We were working long distance with him but he was more that flexible in setting up times to meet over Skype and work out our wedding details. He put together a timeline for us and kept everything flowing on the day of the wedding. We used him for our ceremony and reception and couldn't have asked for things to have gone better. He was professional, fun and had the perfect level of involvement in the evening.
