DJ Chris Hollister was absolutely amazing! He was so easy to work with. Chris went above and beyond (in many ways) to make sure our wedding day went absolutely perfect and it did! We had a packed dance floor all night long. Our guests have been raving about the music, the overall vibe, and the energy that filled the room all night... Chris was definitely responsible for that. I would highly recommend him to any future couple that is looking for someone to read the crowd and keep guest of all ages on the dancefloor. Thank you Chris for an amazing, unforgettable night! Oh and as an added bonus, Chris also provided a handful of pictures of some special moments and a short highlight video of us dancing with our guests :) We cannot say enough good things about him.

We loved having Chris as our DJ. He really took the time to get to know us and listened to what we really wanted beforehand. Chris did an amazing job mixing up old and new hits to keep everyone dancing the entire night. From start to finish, our dance floor was bumping. We both loved working with him and would highly recommend him to everyone planning a wedding or any event!

Thank you so much Kelsey & Donnie for taking the time out to leave me a review. I really enjoyed meeting you both and I had a BLAST at your wedding. It was one big dance party, (which is the way I like it). Thank you both soon much for asking me to be a part of such an awesome celebration. I wish you both the best in your lives together.

Chris was THE BEST choice for our wedding DJ! He really took the time to understand our taste in music as a couple and the entire ceremony/cocktail hour/reception reflected that. We got so many compliments on the music and according to one guest, she "had never seen such a consistently packed dance floor at a wedding." It's true! In the pictures, nobody is sitting down; they're all out dancing!

Chris did a great job of deflecting requests that we didn't want played and making everyone have an all around wonderful time. As the bride and groom, he made sure we were happy, that we ate and we heard every song we wanted to by the end of the night. He was an absolute delight to work with!

Chris kept the dance floor packed all night, with everyone out of their seats, young and old. We had a blast, as did all our guests!! Chris was great and professional from our first conversation, and handled all our special requests. From keeping the father-daughter dance a surprise for the Bride, and handling original songs, Chris was happy to participate in the wedding fun. His lighting options, and the pictures and video he shot as a special bonus were fantastic! I would definitely use Chris again, and I highly recommend him for your wedding!

My husband and I were so happy we chose Chris for our wedding. He listened to our requests including non-conventional ones (like playing Jurassic Park theme song for our introduction), suggested great ideas (like playing the shoe game), and keep the party going. He also asked me throughout the night if everything was going well and if I needed anything from him. My guests loved the music he played. His price was also the most reasonable compared to other vendors we researched.
One thing to note, we choose to do our uplighting with Chris instead of through our venue. It was strangely one of our most stressful decisions but one of our best ideas. We choose to do purple uplights and it made our dance floor light up beautifully.

Thank you, Chris!!! From the moment I booked you for our October 11 wedding at the Lodge on Echo Lake, you made everything easy, fun and seamless. You were extremely responsive throughout the entire process (including calming me down and telling me not to stress as the event got closer). At the reception, you made sure to get the crowd up and moving and played all of our favorite tunes. THANK YOU AGAIN! We highly recommend you to anyone looking for a DJ for their upcoming wedding!

Chris was so great as our wedding DJ! He had everybody dancing all night and we had a great mix of music to appeal to the older and younger generations and keep everyone energized. The night was flawless and what stands out most is how quickly it flew by. We couldn't believe it when it was time to go! It's cliche, but time certainly does fly when you are having fun, and we had the time of our lives. It was truly the most perfect day, and Chris did a wonderful job making all that happen; we didn't have to worry about a thing. He is a true pro!

Chris is wonderful! We had a wide age range of guests for our Sunday wedding, but he got everyone dancing! He played the songs we requested, but it was really his ability to read a crowd that compelled everyone to get up and dance. We had a blast!!! His fee was completely fair, especially for the quality of service he provides. We highly recommend Chris to any couple who wants a fun, energized wedding reception! Thank you, Chris!!!!

Chris did an excellent job at our wedding. We got great feedback from our guests about the music. One of the best things for me was that he pronounced everyone's name perfectly during the introductions! No small feat. He wasn't over the top or trying to make our wedding like a night club which is what we wanted. He also did a perfect job at queuing up our recessional song at the right time (we had given him a very specific request to come into the song at :34, which he did! ha). Chris was very flexible with meeting times and locations, and we always felt really at ease when we would meet with him to plan. Overall Chris helped our wedding go really smoothly!!

If you are looking for an exceptional DJ for your wedding, Chris Hollister is your man! When my husband and I first talked with Chris over the phone to set up an initial meeting, we knew we were going to choose him before we even met him. His personality is one of a kind. We immediately felt a connection with him and knew he was going to provide us with the perfect DJ service for our wedding day - which he absolutely delivered! Chris always provided immediate responses to emails or phone calls, was very flexible with meeting times, and, even though we met with him a year before our wedding, he kept in touch with us throughout the months leading up to our big day. He was open to our musical likes/dislikes and had great suggestions for ceremony music and cocktail hour. He also did an excellent job reading the crowd on the dance floor the day of the wedding to play songs that kept the dance floor full all night long! He was always professional, fun, and friendly and we felt like we had our friend behind the turn-tables all night! He took the time to really get to know us as a couple and we felt like he was truly excited to be there on our wedding day and help us have the perfect day! He doesn't just want to be your DJ for the day, he wants to be a trusted friend that you can count on to help you live out your dream wedding. He goes above and beyond and he is truly invested in his work and the couples that he works with. He even takes pictures to help capture your day! :-) The ballroom also looked amazing with his up lighting and the lighted monogram was the perfect touch! I could go on and on about Chris Hollister and his service. He is outstanding and my husband and I VERY highly recommend him!!! You will NOT be disappointed!! :-)

When my husband and I first talked with Chris over the phone to set up an initial meeting, we knew we were going to choose him before we even met him. His personality is one of a kind. We immediately felt a connection with him and knew he was going to provide us with the perfect DJ service for our wedding day - which he absolutely delivered! Chris always provided immediate responses to emails or phone calls, was very flexible with meeting times, and, even though we met with him a year before our wedding, he kept in touch with us throughout the months leading up to our big day. He was open to our musical likes/dislikes and had great suggestions for ceremony music and cocktail hour. He also did an excellent job reading the crowd on the dance floor the day of the wedding to play songs that kept the dance floor full all night long! He was always professional, fun, and friendly and we felt like we had our friend behind the turn-tables all night! He took the time to really get to know us as a couple and we felt like he was truly excited to be there on our wedding day and help us have the perfect day! He doesn't just want to be your DJ for the day, he wants to be a trusted friend that you can count on to help you live out your dream wedding. He goes above and beyond and he is truly invested in his work and the couples that he works with. He even takes pictures to help capture your day! :-) The ballroom also looked amazing with his up lighting and the lighted monogram was the perfect touch! I could go on and on about Chris Hollister and his service. He is outstanding and my husband and I VERY highly recommend him!!! You will NOT be disappointed!! :-)
