A special note on my wedding rates.

 

"We worked with Chris for our wedding and honestly we could not have made a better choice. Chris went well above and beyond what we expected from a DJ by helping to plan the logistics of our ceremony. He had us won over before he even played a song! In the planning process, Chris brought up things that I never would have thought to plan out, which made all the difference for our day to go smoothly. He sent us a very detailed worksheet to plan out our ceremony step by step, came to our rehearsal and did a walk through with the entire wedding party and provided us with an itinerary that we could send to the rest of our vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page.

 

Chris also provided lighting services for us which made the reception tent look great and very elegant. Once the dancing portion of the night started, Chris continued to wow us. From the first song to the last, the party did not stop. He did a great job of playing newer, more popular songs to keep me happy, while mixing in a few older, classic songs that got the older crowd dancing as well.

 

Throughout the whole process, he was so professional and easy to work with. Chris was happy to do what we wanted to make sure our day was exactly how we pictured it, but at the same time was a great source of advice when we were unsure about something. Looking back on our wedding, picking Chris as our DJ was the best decision we made. If he is available for your wedding, book him while you can!!!"

Multimedia Projector

($99 - just the projector, without a screen). This can be used to add video to your event. Display your own photo slideshow or a video montage from a laptop or DVD. Often your venue can provide use of a free-standing portable video screen, or you may opt for one below. With different projectors to shoose from ranging from 2000 to 4500 ansi lumens, short-throw or long-throw, I'll select the perfect one for your application. Don't worry, just like all of my other gear used on site, I'll have a backup.

You get all of the same high performance DJ gear I would normally use. No wimpy, scaled-down versions of anything here. No battery-powered speakers or other consumer-grade gear.

Now you can have your outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour wherever you want--literally!

Portable Wireless Speaker

100" Free-standing Video Projection Screen

($49 - just the screen, without a projector). Capable of front video projection only, this screen boasts a large viewing area with a diagonal measurement of over 8 feet. Perfect for small to medium sized venues, this is the answer for incorporating any kind of visual content for guest lists of up to 100. 2 are available for venues where the guests are seated on both sides of a dance floor (like the Berkshire Hills Country Club or I.T.A.M. Lodge).

135" Free-standing Video Projection Screen

Capable of front video projection only, this screen stands just over 10 feet tall and 8 feet wide and boasts a massive viewing area tht about 9 feet wide by 5 and 1/2 feet tall--that's a nearly eleven foot diagonal. What good is a presentation if the screen is too small for everyone to see it, right? If space in the venue allows for it, this is the answer for incorporating any kind of visual content for guest lists of over 100. 

180" Free-standing Video Projection Screen

($169 - just the screen, without a projector). This front projection screen boasts a massive viewing area with a 15 foot diagonal!
