Review by Cody S.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 2, 2022From Newry, ME

Chris was great! He arrived on time and well prepared. He made the music portion of the wedding very easy. I told him the music and the order ahead of time and when he got to the venue he set up and got to it. Everything went super smooth. Would definitely recommend him to a friend!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 6, 2022From Kennebunkport, ME

We couldn't be more pleased with Chris' performance. His musical talent is the best. He is a self-starter and a natural emcee. He anticipates needs and corrects problems. This guy is the best performer of his ilk that I have seen. He added markedly to the success of the evening.
