Chris was absolutely FANTASTIC at our November 8th wedding. My husband and I could not have asked for a better DJ. At our meeting with Chris prior to the wedding he made some unique suggestions for the music to be played at our ceremony - I am so glad we took these suggestions as many guests have commented that the upbeat, happy tunes really set the mood for the whole evening. Our reception was an absolute blast- his song selection was on point and the dance floor was packed from the moment dinner ended to the end of the night. I know I didn't even want to leave the dance floor for a second ( I even passed on having cake because I didn't want to miss a single song). So many of our guests have raved on what a great time they had, and this is in large part due to Chris. We cannot thank him enough and I know he will be getting calls from our family in the future when my younger sisters get married.

Chris was absolutely the best DJ we could have ever imagined! He's flexible, fun, patient and personable. We had a few strange requests for songs, but Chris was able to get every single one and bring the party! We met with him a week or so before the big day, and we knew then we were in good hands. He played a wonderful variety of dance music that pleased our parents and our friends. We would recommend Chris to anyone in a heartbeat. I found him after he worked for my company's party, so his talent stretches from corporate to personal events. Chris - you rock!!!!

Words can not begin to explain the gratitude we have for Chris! He was kind, patient, helpful and a lot of fun!! Chris was a pleasure to meet with and even practiced names (we had some hard ones) just to ensure everything was perfect! We had last minute (20 minutes before the ceremony was to start) unforeseen changes due to the venue having their own issues.. he was on point, so easy to work with, flexible,early and ready to roll with it! We had a blast and so did all of our guests! Even though we were a little flustered due to the venue issues he set our mind at ease and no one ever knew there was a hiccup with the venue! My brother and sister in law used Chris a few years ago, this year was our turn and we plan to continue passing on all of Chris' amazing talents! We are so grateful and appreciative of Chris!

Chris was amazing! From the first time meeting him, we knew he was the DJ for us. Super friendly and really knows his stuff. He helped us find just the right music to fit our small but mixed group of guests. I even emailed him the morning of the wedding to change our first dance song and he made it happen with no questions asked! He added some up-lighting for us and it looked awesome!! He walked us through everything and I really couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Thank you Chris for making our day, the Best Day Ever! :)

We knew we wanted Chris to be the DJ for our wedding just from reading his reviews and website alone. We couldn't have been more thrilled and felt so fortunate upon learning that he was available. First encounter was on the phone and he showed nothing but patience, kindness and his full attention. When we met him in person it really was a no brainer to have him be a part of our team for our special day. Chris exhibited the utmost professionalism and was very responsive. He loves what he does and it shows. What truly set him apart is his commitment to make your wedding day the best and we all know how critical his roles being the biggest supporter to help set the tone for your wedding day. We had many requests to make our wedding very personalized and there was nothing he wasn't willing to do, we couldn't have asked for a more flexible person to follow out on our vision, not to mention he had his own wonderful ideas and was more than happy to share them without being overly pushy which all in all made us a great team.

Thank you so much for the kind words Adee & Alex! You both had such an amazing, classy & elegant wedding day! From the beautiful ceremony in Congress park to the dance party in the tent...It was such a great night. I am so thrilled that you were happy with my services. It means a lot to me (as the only vendor NOT from NYC area)! Thank you so much for trusting me to make you wedding happen the way you envisioned it!

We were very pleased with Chris Hollister as our musical host for our August wedding. He was professional from our initial meetings through our wedding day. He listened to what types of music we had planned on having for the ceremony, cocktail hour & the reception. He made suggestions when he thought at certain times certain songs might work better, but left it up to us for the final decision. We also felt he has the experience in reading crowds from previous events and what works best at the time. We heard many good compliments about Chris from our guests & the way he handled the whole event. Everything went smoothly, certain music we wanted were timed just the way we wanted & we would certainly recommend his services. He was really a big part of making our day special. Great job Chris! Thank you, Sandra & Eric.

Chris Hollister is a great DJ and great person. He is all about the bride and groom! And willing to do the "crazy" things most DJ's might not.... He made our reception what we wanted and more. I highly recommend him to DJ whether it be a wedding or a party of some type, you can't go wrong with him as your DJ. Many of the people that had attended our wedding wanted to have a "do-over" because everyone had so much fun!!!!!! A++++++++

Thank you so much Emily. It was great meeting you and Jake...and the rest of your friends and family. I had a fun time celebrating with you all. I am not sure what "crazy" things I did! But I am very happy that you appreciated having me!

My husband and I had the privilege of experiencing Chris Dj at a good friends wedding in Sept 2013. We loved his energy and outgoing personality. We decided immediately we wanted him at our wedding and didn't even waste time meeting with someone else. He was extremely professional but so much fun at the same time, and very attentive to our needs. We had so many compliments at our wedding. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a Dj in the future. P.S..not only is Chris an amazing DJ, but he took awesome pictures and videos as well! Triple threat! Thanks Chris we had a blast!!
