About our DJ's



Chris is the owner and founder of Music Makes You Happy Entertainment. He has been a professional DJ for over 13 years and has well over 300 events under his belt! While attending Christopher Newport University, Chris spent a lot of his time performing on stage with various theater groups so he understands what is needed from an emcee to lead and entertain an audience. With his experience and training coupled with his ability to read any crowd, Chris is an excellent choice for your wedding or special event!



Matt has been a professional DJ for over 7 years and has experience with a wide range of events. From weddings to graduation parties to special events, Matt has done it all. He has an audio engineering degree from Full Sail University so he knows how to make any setup sound perfect. In addition to being a DJ, Matt previously worked at Vista Point at Norfolk Naval planning and running all of their events. Not only is Matt a great DJ, he is also a excellent musician and plays with several local bands.



Greg joined Music Makes You Happy Entertainment this year but has years of experience in event planning, consultation and execution. Greg spent several years running events at the Freeman Center at Christopher Newport University and uses that expertise running events for Music Makes You Happy. Greg has a deep understanding of all kinds of music, from The Beatles to Toby Keith to Jay Z. It’s fair to say that his appreciation and knowledge of music is something not seen everyday. Greg truly is our music consultant!



Brad is our party starter. Chris and Brad met in college and immediately started performing on stage together. That chemistry was quickly realized and utilized behind the DJ table. Brad took over one of the original microphones while attending Christopher Newport and only stepped away from the table briefly to earn his MBA from Syracuse. Armed with an amazing personality, an unbeatable ability to read a crowd and an infectious energy, Brad is an awesome DJ and emcee. Attend one of his events and you will understand why he is our party starter! Read less

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Our style depends on your event. We strive to approach each event uniquely. After all, what works for one wedding might not work for another. You can trust that your event will be handled professionally whether you need a laid back, relaxed performer or a more formal approach, we have you covered.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No, there is no limit on the music that can be requested. in fact, during our meetings we actually spend a lot of time discussing your musical tastes and what you want to hear.
What is your usual attire?
Our attire depends on your event. Our typical attire is a dark suit but if you need us to wear a tuxedo, we can do that!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
If you want a song that we don't have, we will get it ahead of time. We have a huge library with access to an even bigger library. If you want it, we will get it!
How many other DJs do you work with?
Music Makes You Happy has three full time DJ's and two part time DJ's.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Our minimum is three hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes! We require up to two face to face consultations to make sure that we provide everything you want for your big day.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We have experience with a lot of different cultures and are always happy to learn about new ones!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes! While going over the music during our meetings, we discuss what songs that you don't want played. Keep in mind we are professional DJ's and won't play death metal or hardcore rap at your reception!
Do you bring your own equipment?
We own all of our equipment. It is brand new and state of the art. We also own our own backup equipment which we setup during every event should something happen to our primary equipment.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Our standard package includes LED dance lights. We also offer multiple video screens, LED uplighting and decorations with our upgraded packages.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
We like to set aside three hours for setup. We don't usually need that much time but we don't like to rush through things. We bring our own table unless the venue provides a table.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No, our system is very compact and can be put just about anywhere.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
NO! We do not use banners or signs at weddings. We have a small card holder and a 8x12 picture that we place on our table for folks who may be interested in hiring us for another event.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
This depends on the event and what the bride and groom wants. We are not radio DJ's and your wedding isn't a stage for us to show off our comedic style. However, if the bride and groom want us to make dedications or announcements then we will.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We have a few different techniques to get people dancing. Our experience has taught us that there are a few songs that most people will dance too and as long as they are not on the "Do Not Playlist." We will also walk around and chat with the folks at the tables to see what they would like to hear. If people are still too shy we will use games and ice breakers to break the ice (I promise, we are not cheesy, these are fun games that everyone will like). We have also been known to offer prizes to encourage dancing!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We don't take breaks (aside from the occasional restroom break) and we rarely eat so a meal is not necessary.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
While we are in the restroom, the current song will continue playing and the next song will be cued.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We have three full time DJ's that are always ready should your DJ become ill or unable to attend your event. All of your information is saved online via your online account and it's also saved in your personal notebook that we work on during our face to face consultations so no matter who your DJ is, they will be ready!
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Our company will never contract more than two events per day. We will always have a professional DJ ready to go should something happen to the DJ that you have been working with.
What is your overtime rate?
We don't charge by the hour, we charge by the event therefore we don't have an overtime rate.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We travel for free all over Hampton Roads. If your event is outside the area we will discuss the travel fee before the contract is signed. Typically we charge the IRS approved mileage rate for the miles driven outside the Hampton Roads area.

Amazing does not even begin to describe Chris. Amazing DJ, and plays amazing mixes based on your tastes. He helped so much with the planning and timing of events, truly made our day perfect. We also got the photo booth which was amazing he was beyond helpful. The photo booth was a hit. Chris also helped with our Tuxedo orders, and everything was perfect. We had so many people in the bridal party come up and compliment him, as well as other guests attending the wedding. Thank you so much Chris, you are awesome.

Chris was incredible. We had quite a few special requests, such as a special mix for the bride and father dance. He made the best possible mix, and played all of our requested songs just like we asked. The photo booth was incredible, I have guests still talking about it! I will definitely be recommending him in the future!

Chris did an awesome job and I would highly recommend him! He was extremely helpful in the planning process, especially when setting up a timeline. He was the DJ, MC, and provided a photo booth and lighting. The room looked great and the photo booth was a hit among adults and kids alike! Chris did an excellent job reading the crowd and playing the right music. Several of our guests complimented on his ability to seamlessly do so many things. He was able to add the right amount of humor and great ideas for getting people dancing!

Music Makes You Happy has a great wedding planning tool where I could pick out the music I wanted played and add songs for special dances and events (such as the garter and bouquet tosses).

We had Matt as our DJ and he was great! I do not live in the area I had my wedding, and he was really great about meeting with me over Skype to plan the wedding. The day of the wedding, some of the bridal party was late getting to the reception (due to a location mix up), and he kept all of the guests happily entertained until we were ready for our entrance. He played slower songs during dinner, and then he kicked it up to party mode! Everyone had a great time dancing! It was so much fun!

All of the lights around the dance floor were great too! We also got the uplighting package, and it was really worth it! It added a lot to the reception hall! I definitely recommend Matt from Music Makes You Happy!!

I had the pleasure of working w. Matt from the Music Makes You Happy team. Matt was so great to work with, he was incredibly responsive both via email and phone and the day of the wedding he was on top of everything! He made sure the entire reception was dancing to a mix of songs that my husband and I selected as well as songs that he thought would would keep the party going. He checked in w. both my husband and myself throughout the night to make sure that we were happy with what we were hearing and remained attentive to both our reactions and the crowds- if there seemed to be even the slightest indication that a song wasn't as well received as others he was pro and seamlessly transitioned to the next one. I can't recommend Matt highly enough-- you want him to DJ your wedding!

Chris was truly the best to work with! He is very quick to respond to any inquiries and called multiple times during the planning process to discuss plans for the wedding day. He also provides a really helpful personal online account that you can update throughout the planning process--request songs and write down key names, song choices, etc so it is kept in one place. He was wonderful on my big day and made our reception a memorable event! It was really a relief to have him there because I wasn't sure what kind of music to play; I had so many different age ranges present at my wedding and wasn't able to think of music that would make everyone happy, But Chris went around to introduce himself to all my guests during cocktail hour to get a feeling for the kind of music they liked and to take requests. Everybody loved him, had a blast, and danced the whole night, even my father! And the additional photobooth was worth every penny; it was a big hit among all my guests. I highly recommend Chris. He made our special day truly perfect.

I just wanted to say that Chris at Music Makes You Happy is awesome!!! He was so professional, helpful, thoughtful, and I could just keep going on. He knows how to get the party started and keep it going. I had a situation come up the week of the wedding in which I didn't select a lot of the music for the ceremony and reception and put those decision in his hands and he selected the perfect music for each situation!! If you are ever in search of a DJ, up lighting rentals or a photo booth I would highly recommend contacting Chris. Thanks again for making our day truly amazing!! It was better then I ever could have imagined!

We went through Music Makes You Happy for DJ services and the groom's and father of the bride's tuxes. Chris was amazing. We had songs that most people problem wouldn't have thought to have in a wedding and he was able to obtain them with plenty of time to spare before the wedding. All we have to do was tell him the types of music for each part of the event and he did the rest. The transitions were great and the songs were even better. He even kept the schedule on track and if we needed to move something up or push something back, he could easily adjust the schedule. Highly recommend checking the vendor out for your big day!

This was a wonderful team of guys to work with. They were very helpful and friendly both through the planning process and on the day of. Our DJ played a perfect selection of music for our crowd and several guests commented it was the best DJ (wedding or otherwise) they had ever experienced. He was also very helpful with announcements and transitions (basically a really good master of ceremonies). We got up-lighting from this vendor as well and it looked beautiful in our setting. Overall we had a great experience and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an awesome DJ. Price was good too!

I have nothing but great things to say about this company. Chris was our DJ and he was fanastic. By far the best DJ I've ever seen at a wedding. He was very good at communication. When it gets closer to the wedding day he does an in-person meeting to develop the timeline, which was so helpful. At the wedding he got a good feel for the crowd and played songs that had people dancing all night. For ex, we asked him to not play any line dancing songs (Wobble, Cha-cha slide, etc) but those songs were what got people out there and he took notice and played them. Shoot, I was even dancing to them! I'm so glad that he made the executive decision to play them anyways. I loved how he was very low key (not yelling in the microphone or dragging ppl to the dance floor like some DJs), yet he interacted with the guests and really helped the party come to life. One of the best things about Chris is his "grand finale song" idea. If you don't like the spotlight you might be hesitant when he mentions this idea, but it is a MUST!! This was one of the top 3 best moments of the night!

Long story short, I HIGHLY recommend Music Makes You Happy Entertainment as your wedding (or other event) DJ!! One of the best decisions of my wedding!

Chris was the DJ at my daughter's wedding. He is wonderful!!! He was detailed oriented which kept everything on time and organized. He is polite and caring. This meant a lot to me because I wanted someone that would care if the bride and groom were pleased and not someone who would treat this as just another job. He truly puts his heart and soul into the event. Everyone had a great time. I give Chris and his company 5 stars for excellent service.

I've never seen so many guests dancing for so long...his music selection and his DJing style were outstanding!! Chris was very professional and organized and we couldn't have picked someone better to DJ our event. Not only did he do a fantastic job, but he was very reasonably priced as well! I'd highly recommend Music Makes you Happy Entertainment to any bride and groom!

Matt was a great DJ for our wedding! My husband and I highly recommend him. I don't think that anyone else could beat his price! We saved more than half of what I had budgeted for a DJ.

We could tell that Matt truly loves DJ'ing weddings. He always got back to me right away with all my questions and thoughts, and I loved that he met with us at a local coffee shop before we signed the contract. Also since he had never DJ'ed at our reception venue, he met with me to tour the venue. It was so important that he see the reception venue. After seeing it, he knew exactly where he wanted to set up his equipment, both for the cocktail hour and the reception.

Matt also provided us with a very detailed form so we could get the music we wanted. I was very detailed in completing it and he had every song in there that I requested. We had a traditional Jewish wedding and needed hora music. We gave Matt a list of Jewish/Israeli songs and he created the perfect mix/mash-up of them. He has so many resources that we didn't have to provide him with any songs.

Matt also really added a lot of personal touches. He knew that I was a big Beatles fan and had "Something" as the last dance song and "Good Night" as the last song.

Again, great DJ. The music was perfect!

Chris and Matt were our DJ's for our wedding reception. From the first phone calls to the end of the reception we have been thrilled with them.
Chris was very flexible and helpful. He was very professional on all aspects and he was fun to work with at the same time! We were able to get the entrance, the music, the games and the atmosphere just as we wanted.
They both wore tuxedos, it was something really important to us and it showed their professionalism to the last detail!

Our guests complimented on "how good our DJs were" throughout the whole evening.
I would definitely recommend Chris as a DJ to any bride and groom who want to have a successful and fun reception!


Thanks again for your hard work Chris!

Chris did a wonderful job at my wedding at the Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront. We had already booked a band - but I wanted a DJ as well to do the formal announcements, and to kind of be in charge of keeping the flow throughout the night. After getting countless estimates from DJ's that were extremely high I came across Music Makes You Happy with great reviews. He responded right away and was very flexible in making a package that was perfect for what we needed!! We met right away and we felt great about him. Our wedding reception was perfect!! He did a wonderful job of the announcements, and really kept the flow throughout the night to keep the guests updated on what was going on. I would HIGHLY recommend him as a DJ to anyone interested!!!

Great, great job! The music during the ceremony was perfect. The reception was tons of fun, everyone was on their feet dancing all night. I could not have asked for anything more. (I heard some of the guests were trying to bribe you to play longer.) Too bad we had to be out of the location by 11. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. You definitely connected with the crowd and played music which kept everyone involved.

We had our wedding at the smithfield center and chris rice was beyond amazing!!!! Not only did he play the music for our ceremony and our dance reception, but i caught him with a broom and dustpan cleaning up spilled drinks on the dance floor, he asked us if we wanted drinks while taking pictures, and our guests said he went to each and every table and took song requests. They said they had never seen that and even wanted to hire him for a wedding all the way in new Jersey! He went beyond the job of a DJ, and i would never recommend anyone but him, now after this experience. I have seen and heard some bad experiences with djs, but you cant go wrong with this guy! Also, he is totally affordable with competitive prices, he also did our uplighting too, made the room look and sound amazing! Thank you so much chris!

Chris Rice is the best wedding dj of all time. Full discolsure I have known/admired Chris for nearly a decade and when it was time to choose a wedding dj it was a total no brainer. Out of all the "vendors" we worked with Chris was the easiest. We did not require anything crazy because we werent doing anything tacky like a dollar dance or what not but he was perfect. Everyone commented to us about how much fun he was, and how he played something for everyone. He is professional, shows up well dressed and on time, and makes sure the party goes perfectly. He made sure the boys knew it was time to do toasts, he played everyones requests (Even the embarrassing ones), he even talked my mother off a ledge when she was freaking her freak. I could not imagine anyone else being my wedding dj, he was phenominal and I wish I could throw a big party every year and have him dj it. Could not recommend him highly enough.

I met Greg and Chris at a bridal show and right away I knew they were the right fit for us. They are both extremely professional but fun and easy going at the same time! You can really tell they care about and enjoy what they do. We had Greg as our DJ and he made the whole wedding planning process easy and fun. He met with us on several occasions to go over all the details. He really helped organize everthing so that the wedding was about us and what we wanted. We knew we could trust him and we didn’t need to tell him exactly what songs to play. The wedding was fun and unique thanks to him and he certainly went the extra mile with us.

I cannot say enough about how awesome Chris and his guys are. Our wedding reception lasted 6 hours and Chris made it into a huge dance party...everything we had hoped for! He is very professional, great with communication and has such an in depth planning process to make sure he has all the bases covered. If you want your guests to have a good time, Music Makes You Happy is the DJ to choose. He also did the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour and everything was flawless. Chris even helped my dad and I pull of the surprise of the night with a secret father/daughter dance that Chris made us a montage of songs for. Book them...you will not be sorry!

Chris was an amazing DJ. From the first meeting his professionalism, character and genuine interest in providing the bride in groom a unique and special day was evident. Though he lives in the Hampton Roads area he was willing to meet us in Richmond to go over all of the details. He is truly devoted to the couples he works with and made our event flow seamlessly. His job was especially difficult for our wedding as he had to create a playlist the fused both latin music and pop/oldies music. Our guests had a wonderful time and even after the "last song" since the party was still in full swing Chris played a couple more songs (staying after his contracted time). He is the DJ you dream of for you wedding and truly a wonderful person to work with. I can't say enough about how great a job he did.

Fromt he very beginning he was organized, and kept in contact with us until the wedding date to ensure he played the music we wanted, everything ran smoothly, etc. He also offered many suggestions that we would have never thought of. The day of the wedding went flawlessly, and he kept everyone up and dancing. I would absolutely recommend his services for all brides out there!

You don't see a lot of the grooms writing reviews on here, so I thought I'd give the groom's review for Chris.
First, I should say that he was recommended to us by his wife at my friend's wife's bachelorette party. So I was immediately hesitant about the whole thing. In college, I worked in Student Activities and most times the DJs were the typical used car salesmen schmaltzy kind of guys you wouldn't ever want to hang out with. Then my (now) wife reminded me who Chris was.
I was introduced to Chris at an engagement party for a friend through Chris' telling of his wedding night. Please have him tell the story to you. I'm still laughing about it. It is a lesson that when you get back to your hotel room on your wedding night, you lock the door.
Chris doesn't fall into that typical DJ crowd. He isn't in the business to build his ego and he told us that from the beginning. He wants you to have the event you want and he's dedicated to making that happen. After we heard that, there was no more hesitation in either of our minds.
We wanted an event that was traditional and yet reflected ourselves through the music and other subtle touches of the ceremony and reception. Being a huge movie fan, I really wanted to incorporate movie music into the prelude of the ceremony and the cocktail hour, which is not an easy task. Chris pulled it off though with selections from John Williams playing pre-ceremony it had the exact effect I wanted which was having the guys looking around saying they knew the songs. That poured into the cocktail hour too with songs from 10 Things I Hate About You and Finding Nemo. And when it was time to dance, the floor was packed. My nieces were supposed to go to sleep a little early, but even insisted to get back out on the dance floor because they "loved" the songs.
Not many weddings have the Theme from Superman, Beyond the Sea from Finding Nemo, Living on A Prayer, Ice Ice Baby, and the Party Rock Anthem, yet Chris made it work seamlessly. Guests are still telling us how much fun they had.
Chris had phone conference calls with us since we were in Northern VA. He also talked with our photographer and us before the wedding to work out the schedule of events. 5 stars just doesn't seem to be enough.

Chris was extremely helpful through out this entire process. He was the least expensive quote we had (out of 4 or 5 DJs) and provided not only excellent service but brought up points and questions we had not considered. Thanks to his suggestions we have multiple beautiful shots of us dancing with friends and family that we other wise would not have had. He was also very good with getting songs up quickly that we requested and avoiding those we put on the do not play list.

We cannot say enough good things about Music Makes You Happy DJ Services! Chris, our DJ and the owner of the company, went above and beyond from the day we contacted him. My husband has an incredibly busy work schedule that requires him to be out of town frequently, but he wanted to be present for the DJ meetings. Chris was willing to drive to meet us at a location of our choice late in the evening to make this possible. At our initial meeting, Chris had a lot of great ideas on to make our wedding really unique and entertaining. We especially loved his suggestions for a game called "The Shoe Game" and for a unique twist on the garter toss. We don't want to go into detail here and spoil the surprise, but both of these were things our guests had never seen before and raved about afterwards. They also made for some great photo ops. He was quick to respond to any emails and questions throughout the process, and he had a final meeting with us shortly before the wedding to check for any changes and to develop a detailed schedule of events for the day. We had some surprises the day of the wedding and had to shift things around quite a bit. Chris never missed a beat, kept the party going, and none of the guests ever had a clue that things weren't exactly how we planned them in the first place. We also received many compliments from the guests on the music selection, many saying they were impressed at how every single song was perfect for a wedding but still fun to dance to! We are proud to reccommend Chris and Music Makes You Happy DJ Services for any event you are having!

Chris met with me a week before my wedding and we went over everything we wanted to do at the reception and he even offered some suggestions for special dances and fun moments. He was able to read the crowd to know what type of music to play, and all of my guests commented on how great the music selection was. I wanted people to dance all night long, and he made that happen. It was one big dance party! Thanks to him, I had a wonderful reception, and everyone had a great time!

I LOVED working with him during the planning process. He had awesome ideas (some I had never thought of myself) and was really attentive to the littlest details.

We had a ton of kids at our wedding and a lot of people with varying music tastes - but he played a perfect variety of genres that were all family appropriate.

Seriously - Chris is professional and AMAZING. You need to hire MMYHDJs!!! :)

Hey Chris,

I hope you had a great Christmas! I just wanted to say
thank you for everything you did to make the wedding perfect for me
and my wife. We had the most amazing time. From the first day we
met, my wife and I knew that we had picked the perfect DJ. But we
thought that was just it, a "DJ". That definitely was not the
case. Since we did not have a wedding planner or someone there to
keep things organized and flowing, you took on that responsibility far
more than we expected. You even brought Amanda's grandparents there
food so they would not have to get up. You also even helped clean
up! All the little things you did to make our night enjoyable is too
much to write, but we want you to know that none of it went unnoticed
and it was all sincerely appreciated. Your name has definitely
been promoted!

Again, thanks a lot for everything and we hope to see
you again sometime!

He was fun, professional and totally flexible. He did everything I asked and then some. My group are not big dancers, but as promised Chris got everyone out on the dance floor. I would recommend him without hesitation for any event. I have seen tons of DJs but none of them half as good as Chris. You will not be disappointed!

Chris with Music Makes You Happy was a wonderful DJ. But in reality, hew as more than just a DJ. My husband and I met with Chris twice before the big day. Each time it was a very casual and comfortable meeting, as if we had known him forever. We went over music selections, likes and dislikes, order of the ceremony and all of the typical wedding things. He was able to do our music for the ceremony and the reception. He arrived to our venue early to go over a few last minute things, meet with our coordinator and make sure that everything was running smoothly. Hiring Chris was like hiring a second coordinator. He emailed with all of our other venues establishing a timeline for the day so that everyone was on the same page. At our reception, he even brought the wine over to my husband and I for the toasts. All of the music was very "kid friendly", which was important since there were about 20+ children at our wedding. Once the children and grandparents had left for the evening, the dance floor transformed! We like to refer to it as the after party portion of the wedding!! Hiring Chris was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding. If I ever need a DJ again I wouldn't hesitate for a second to work with him again! I would absolutely recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Before the wedding, he met with us about 3 times to get to know our music preferences but also to get to know us. He responded promptly to emails and was always open to ideas. I had given him an idea for a game he had never heard of but pulled off beautifully. And not only did he pull my chair out for me when I sat down to dinner, he pulled out my husband's too. All I can say is that Chris is fantastic and, if I ever need DJ services I am absolutely coming back to Chris.

Music Makes you Happy DJ Services was wonderful. This event was an outdoor 40th surprise party for my husband. Chris was extremly easy to work with and helped make the party fun for everyone. Chris provided a great mix of music that was appropriate for both little ears as well as older ears. Chris doesn't just sit back and hit play. He is observant to the entire party. He picked up on a nice moment that my husband and I were sharing and was able to play a nice song that captured the moment for us.

Music Makes you Happy DJ Services was wonderful. This event was an outdoor 40th surprise party for my husband. Chris was extremly easy to work with and helped make the party fun for everyone. Chris provided a great mix of music that was appropriate for both little ears as well as older ears. Chris doesn't just sit back and hit play. He is observant to the entire party. He picked up on a nice moment that my husband and I were sharing and was able to play a nice song that captured the moment for us.

I will be hiring Chris again and again. I recommend him to everyone. He's is amazing! Read less

Chris was an exceptional DJ at my recent wedding. We really didn't want a DJ that was a hokey goofball like so many DJ's we've seen in the past so we went to Chris. He was very professional, on-time, and played great music. Everything went according to plan and the dance floor was always full. Thanks!

There couldn't have been a better DJ for my wedding, he was professional but still sooo much fun. He thought of things that I didn't and anticipated what I may need or want to make the reception better. I was one lucky bride and I would highly recommend Chris to dj any event but especially weddings. He certainly made my wedding reception the best it could have been.

My wedding reception was fabulous and everything ran seamlessly thanks to the professionalism and experience that Chris Rice provided as our emcee.

From the moment we arrived, Chris was organized and attentive to every detail of our celebration, making sure that our day was exactly what we hoped for and more. Before reception introductions, Chris introduced himself cordially to the wedding party and made sure that all members were lined up in order for introductions. His attire was professional and his demeanor was calm, cool and collected, which gave us confidence that our reception would be well handled.

Following the introductions, Chris effortlessly transitioned the evening from dinner, bouquet and garter toss to the main dance party of the evening and played music befitting each stage of the festivities. Every song selection that we had requested for
the special moments was played and he was excellent at providing information for our guests about each part of the reception. When speaking to our guests, Chris addressed them as "ladies and gentlemen", as opposed to "hey everybody", which I greatly appreciated.

His professional demeanor gave us confidence that our most special occasion would be handled with the utmost care and his personable ability to coax guests onto the dance floor with energetic songs provided an evening of fun and dancing that even had my grandmother cutting a rug!

I highly recommend Chris Rice and his DJ services for your party or special event. He has earned my confidence as an outstanding emcee with phenomenal entertainment abilities!

Chris did a great job of reading the crowd and playing a mix of music that kept everyone happy and dancing. He even surprised us at the end of the night by getting everyone on the dance floor to dance with us to wagon wheel (one of our favs)!
