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

DJ Chris was awesome! He provided fantastic entertainment throughout the wedding and was a terrific emcee. He is a professional in every way. He met with me and my fiance to get a sense of what we wanted and our personalities. He helped guide us in our planning, but also gave us total freedom to incorporate non-traditional details into our wedding.

I really loved the online planning website Chris uses. My fiance and I could play "DJ" in advance and hand-pick all the music we wanted to be played. I requested a lot of tracks, and Chris's expert musical selections filled in the rest.

On the day of, he came early with plenty of time to set up the ceremony area and the reception space, which were both at the Founders Inn and Spa. We had 3 different music selections just for the ceremony processional, and he nailed every cue. The timing was perfect. Music cues during the ceremony were on-point as well. No awkward silences or technical difficulties!

The reception was so much fun, and Chris had great suggestions for special dances and music. We incorporated his idea for an anniversary dance into our reception, and it was such a special feature! Definitely one of my favorite parts of the reception.

He kept the reception running on time, and created smooth transitions between all the activities and special dances. As an emcee, he has a great voice, personality, and sense of humor. Kept our guests entertained!

I will definitely recommend Chris to any friends planning a wedding.

Matt was INCREDIBLE! All of our guests raved that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to, and Matt was completely and entirely responsible for that! I ran out of time and didn't get to pick but a handful of song selections before the big day. But no worries! Matt totally picked up on the vibe we were going for and every single song he played was like I had hand picked it. The lighting was incredible and I can't believe he managed to set up the entire venue all by himself. He's like superman. I've been to a dozen other weddings where the DJ just stands at his table and plays the same old tired songs, but Matt actually walked around and ran the entire show. Everyone had a blast and everything ran smoothly and its entirely because of how awesome and incredible Matt is!

There is no way to describe how truly awesome Chris & Matt are. They are so helpful right from the start & they want to be as involved as you need them to be. Matt was the DJ for our wedding & he was outstanding. He was attentive to all of our tastes and interests, and he used them to create a personalized, unique playlist that fit our style better than I ever could have expected! He was gracious to our guests, and he could not have been more wonderful to us. If you want a DJ that isn't a cliche, and really cares about you as a couple than look no further! Also the photobooth was a hit! Our guests loved it!

Matt was the DJ for our wedding, and he was phenomenal!

Prior to the wedding, he was responsive to all of our requests, drafted a timeline for the day(without us asking--VERY nice!), and was unbelievably helpful in getting all of our music selections in line, cutting songs to make them work, etc.

The day of the wedding, he made sure our guests had a great time. Our song selections were important to us, and he made sure all the song cuts and transitions flowed smoothly. He did a great job hosting and introducing everyone. No name butchering or awkward pauses or weird music. Come reception time, we wanted a big dance party and that's exactly what we got. A great mix of songs we requested along with others that fit perfectly.

Most importantly, Matt was just fun! Funny, little quirky, but a blast! He's definitely a pro, but you always felt like your wedding was the most important part of his job. Would definitely work with Chris and Matt again if we had to do it over.

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!
