Chris McKinney

Lead DJ

Our theme song for Chris is Mr. Mom, by Lonestar. It's all about being a stay at home Dad, which Chris is for two twin boys. So needless to say, the man has incredible patience. And he's probably also the smartest of all of us! But he's more than just an intelligent family man. He's very active in the community with Cystic Fibrosis, and of course, he's a skilled DJ. Chris came to us through one of our other DJs, Patrick Ryder. Immediately upon talking to Chris, we knew he was a fit for our company. I was actually worried he'd been tipped off or something because he was so in-tune with our personalized approach!

 

He's extremely dedicated to making the planning process, and certainly the day of, an amazing one. Chris can even share some "DJ horror-stories" from the DJ he hired for his own wedding many years ago. So he knows first hand the importance of making things right for YOU. And his commitment is clear once you talk to him. With his attitude, character, experiences and dedication, he's sure to make things easy, fun and successful for your big day.

Everyone asks the DJ what their favorite song is...so what's yours?

Like a DJ, I can't pick just one, and they're completely different than the music we play at events...but a few would be Sing, Sing, Sing – Benny Goodman, The Ocean – Led Zeppelin, The Sky – Mat Zo & The Pretender – Foo Fighters.
