Chris, of Entertainment Solutions, was everything that we were hoping to find in a DJ. He was incredibly kind, very flexible, and more than responsive whenever we got in touch with him. Chris was the music coordinator at our ceremony, and was also the DJ at our reception. Chris worked with us to ensure that he brought the vision that we had of our wedding reception to life. He also worked closely with our hall decorator to ensure that his uplighting reflected and coordinated with our decor, and the end result was stunning. Always willing to go above and beyond for his customers, Chris even attended our wedding rehearsal to ensure that our wedding day ran as smoothly as we envisioned it. As for our reception, it was exactly as we expected, and even more! My guests raved about the quality of his music, the choices that he played, and, as my family members have said, that he "kept the party going all night!". We're so happy that we went with Chris - he truly is the best in town.

Thank you Chris for your professional services of not only being a DJ, but an MC as well! The dancing on a cloud effect was amazing!
We truly appreciate your input on the nights activities and in which order to have them.
The lighting around the room was beautiful and the music was fantastic, as you had everyone on the dance floor all evening!
We truly appreciate your wealth of knowledge and services. We could not have asked for a better company "Entertainment Solutions" to provide us with exactly what we needed for our wedding reception celebration. Thank You Chris for making our reception a happy memorable night! You're the best! :-)

Chris was our life saver. We had been taken by another DJ and Chris was able to save the day and made sure that our wedding was incredible. He composed a remix for our first dance which was a hit. He played all music we requested, and stayed away from the songs we do not like. Great price for the quality of work. Had great and unique ideas for crowd entertainment.

Chris was awesome and had the dance floor full the entire time. The fog machine was a big hit. I also enjoyed the garter gun. What a cool idea. People keep telling us that our wedding was the best they've been to and we can thank Chris for that.

I have to say I was very impressed with Entertainment Solutions. There isn't much to say but that the night was perfect. Chris was professional and as friendly as a family member. He was part of the party and looked over my guests to make sure there was not one dull moment and I have to say I had so many compliments on the music. One thing I was overly impressed with was the fact that we chose a "first dance" song at the very last minute and it didn't even exist on iTunes so he had to find an alternate way to get the song for us, and he prevailed. Very happy with the service and the lighting was phenomenal!!!! I'd recommend him to everyone. Thanks again for the great night.

Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with! He helped alleviate so much stress by looking after all the entertainment, MCing and all! He organized the evening's events and coordinated all the games and special dances. He really helped to get everyone involved and keep the party alive. His website's interactive fillable form was an awesome tool for brides to work with and helped to ensure that nothing was forgotten, He has gone out of his way on numerous occasions to meet with us and coordiate last minute details, not to mention he had provided his services to us for free after we one a draw at a bridal show. This didn't stop him from still providing the absolute best services to us!

Our DJ (Chris) provided both excellent and professional service. Chris was terrific to deal with during the contract signing period and the weeks leading up to the wedding. His performance during our Wedding day was absolutely amazing and over-the-top!

Both during and after our Wedding, a number of guests remarked how wonderful Chris was and more specifically, how he played such great music that got everyone on the floor.

Thank you Chris for your wonderful service!

Entertainement Solutionns did an amazing job at our wedding. Chris had a variety of techniques and games to get all the guests up on the dance floor! He did an amazing job at reading the crowd, not once was the dance floor empty! I had so many compliments on the entertainment, but I can't take any of the credit! They went above and beyond any of my expectations! We were able to relax and truly enjoy our day! What a difference it makes when the music and the entertainment is great! They were with us throughout the entire day for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception!! What a fabulous job!! :)
