The right equipment for the job

This is the typical set up for the 2017 wedding season. The lights pictured are included.

MusiChris DJ & Lighting Service owns all the equipment used to perform as your DJ. Every piece was purchased new, is top-quality professional-level, is meticulously cleaned and cared for, and housed in attractive, professional cases. But it takes more than owning the best equipment to be a professional disc jockey. A highly experienced DJ expertly knows how to operate the equipment. Understanding and accurately judging the acoustics of a venue produces sound that is properly dispersed and of the clearest, highest quality possible. Most importantly, it is done consistently, and at an appropriate volume.


No two events are ever the same. No two venues are the same. Chris has loads of equipment to choose from, and uses exactly what's needed for your event to look, and sound, it's best.


Music inside and outside? No problem. Music in two far apart indoor spaces AND outside? Still no problem. Most DJs can't say that. Without breaking the bank, Chris builds packages that get the job done right. You've invited everyone you know. Offer them the high-quality entertainment they deserve.

5 speakers are used to cover this large ballroom at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, producing superbly dispersed sound of the utmost quality.

This compact, yet powerful rig is perfect for tight spaces like at the top of The Crowne Plaza, in Pittsfield, Mass. A speaker was positioned at the far corner of this room, producing clean, even sound throughout this L-shaped event space.

Hearing is believing

To fully appreciate the difference you have to experience it for yourself. The systems I use are selected according to the type of event you are hosting and the size of your venue. You can be certain that the bass you'll feel will get people moving. The bass is the driving force of music. Whether it's rock, funk, motown, disco, R & B, you name it. It's what compells your guests to get out of their seats and onto the dance floor.

My favorite rig for formal events in large venues.
