“We had the absolute pleasure of having Chris DJ at my brother’s civil partnership on 11th August 2013 and can I say that from start to finish, Chris was a consummate professional. He has worked hard to accommodate some rather challenging requests (!) and met the challenge and delivered! We had a fantastic experience of 1stdance and Chris helped to make the day the roaring success it was. Please please don’t think twice about booking Chris for your event, he is now our family’s official resident DJ!” (Cottiers Westend Glasgow)"
"Thank you for your performance on Sunday. We were really pleased with the way things went. The First Dances were much appreciated and your CDs were in great demand afterwards. I am sure some of our guests went home listening to the music you had played. We had numerous positive comments both about your disco, and your support. Many people appreciated the way their own first dances featured throughout the night, a number had not danced to them since their own wedding, in one case 40 years ago!"
"Thank you so much for djing our wedding at Pollokshield's Burgh Hall. We were so glad when you showed up with your setup and it was very modern lights etc., we were worried it was going to be tacky and it wasn't. Also want to thank you for providing the big screen and projector for us to display our family photos - we wouldn't have been able to do that without your help, and we are so grateful for you helping our nephew Lewis introduce us on the mic to our first dance as he was very nervous and you calmed him down. The music kept everyone on the dance floor all night and you were happy to take request on the night, including a huge list of songs from myself before the wedding. We were so happy with the results on the night that my aunt booked you for her anniversary a few months after. We had an amazing night and the dance floor was full all night catering for everyone's tastes. Thanks again Chris, and we will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family"
"Myself and my Husband picked Chris to be the DJ at our wedding and from the first meeting with Chris we knew we had made a good decision. Chris' service was very professional and friendly. He played a great range of songs at the reception and had the dance floor full all night! We would definitely use Chris again and would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for any occasion. 1st class service!!".
