    Christian is so friendly and he was so easy to work with -- we didn't even have enough song requests to provide him for our 4-hour long company Christmas party, but he managed to put together songs everyone would enjoy based on the requests. He was really awesome and we'll definitely book him again :)

    We booked Christian as a DJ for my company's holiday party. His employee, Mel was our DJ and he was fantastic! He was very accommodating and kept the crowd entertained. About ten minutes before our party was about to end, Mel asked if we wanted to extend our time or wrap it up. It was great to see that Mel was willing to stay! Thank you so much, Mel!

    Christian was AWESOME!!! He DJ'd our wedding this past weekend, and did GREAT keeping the party going! He's so easy going and absolutely hysterical! He keeps you updated on what's next on the adenga for the next few hours too, but if you wanna keep on getting your groove on he's totally cool with that also! I've had constant feedback from everyone who attended our wedding that our DJ was the best they've ever experienced! I would DEFINITELY recommend him to absolutely anyone! He should probably charge more than he does, you're getting way more than what you paid for, without a doubt! Thank you SO much Christian!

    My husband and I held a Halloween party for approximately 225 wounded warrior and their families and everyone agreed that the dj made the night. He was able to read the crowd and play things that appealed to the various age groups. He had the crowd dancing and enjoying themselves all night.

    The dj was prompt, professional, and open and friendly with the crowd. We definitely would recommend and will be using his services again.

    Christian was incredibly professional in how he handled DJ'ing our wedding. We had so much fun and he was very easy to work with. Because he was so easy to work with, that was one less thing I had to worry with the day of the wedding, and leading up to it. He was an amazing presence at our wedding, and he helped make the day fuss and worry free. We couldn't imagine anyone doing a better job, and we would have picked him 100 times out of 100. Thanks so much Christian for your part in our special day!

    DJ Mel was fabulous. Professional, timely, and accommodating. We will definitely use his services again.

    Christian was very professional and helpful from the get go. He made sure to answer any questions I had and gave me a great price! He arrived early to set up for my event and had all of his equipment ready to go and in excellent working condition. His playlist was fantastic and he really knows how to read the crowd. I would recommend him to any of my friends and I plan on using him for all of my future DJ needs!

  • 5/5 stars October 21, 2014

    From the start Christian was on the ball with a quick response after I posted on thumbtack. After speaking with him and going over wedding details I hired him. This was the BEST decision. He kept in touch through the whole process. Christian allowed great flexibility! We chose some specific songs and then wanted to just pick the music theme, genre, and time period for specific time periods of our wedding. His taste in the selections was spot on! Also he was a fantastic announcer.... Not to much but bold enough to make everyone feel special! If we could do it again we would choose him :)

  • 5/5 stars October 20, 2014

    Christian did a excellent job not only responding to what the crowd wanted but willingly working the music into our themed wedding. Thank you so much!

  • 5/5 stars September 23, 2014

    Working with Christian was effortless. He proactively led me through the engagement, making it impossible to forget anything important on my sister's big day. He was very flexible, even coming early to work around my (the wedding party) photo schedule. The music was great, but he also MCed our event and kept us on schedule. He was absolutely fantastic, and I would not consider working with anyone else in the future. Thanks Christian!

  • 5/5 stars September 18, 2014

    Christian was an AMAZING wedding DJ and I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for such a service. Christian was professional throughout, very accommodating and easy to work with. He came early and stayed late. Not to mention his pricing is the most competitive in the area. I can't say enough good things about Christian and Taurus DJs. Look no further if you need a DJ for your wedding. You won't be let down.

  • 5/5 stars August 18, 2014

    Chris was great, He was on time and did a great job with the list of music.
    All of my guest had nothing but great things to say about him.

  • 5/5 stars August 2, 2014

    Christian's service to us on our wedding day was not something we thought much about. And that was exactly as we wanted it to be! We didn't have to worry about a thing. The equipment was rested and worked perfectly. He provided for a great wedding reception and made every transition flawless. We really appreciated his professionalism as well as his friendly demeanor. We recommend him highly!

  • 5/5 stars August 2, 2014

    Christian was absolutely wonderful to work with! From the beginning he made it clear that it was our wedding and adjusted his playlist and music to fit our needs and tastes. He worked directly off of the list we provided and created a playlist that was perfect, playing wonderful songs we had not even considered. He also took guest requests into consideration, and played music to keep people on the dance floor. He even made adjustments to the playlist as late as the night before the wedding! I highly recommend Christian!

    I met Chris thru a Friend, I'm disabled an have lil money an was getting married - I could not afford the prices the other DJs wanted - Then a friend gave me Chris number an I called him - Chris contacted me back an asked me how much I had an said he would do it - I was impressed with Chris, He did an excellent job - Was there when we got there - Played some really good tunes - People were dancing even the kids were dancing - I had no ideal what kind of DJ I was getting - What I got was a miracle !!!!!

    Christian was professional and personable.
    we enjoyed our event very much.
    Thank you Christian for everything.

  • 5/5 stars June 18, 2014

    Christian was simply outstanding! First and foremost, from the very beginning, he never stopped communicating. I was looking for a DJ to play at my daughter's High School graduation party. I had no idea what I was looking for or what to expect. He answered my emails within hours, if not minutes, and he gave me detailed and specific answers to all my questions. He was personable and honest.

    He arrived early and almost immediately started playing music, even though he was not officially "on the clock." He was dressed nicely and professionally, though our party was very casual. He played every song that was "on the spot requested" and kept everyone tapping their feet or bopping their head. He impressed the older generation with his song selections and kept the younger generation wanting more.

    Christian has great instinct. He was observant and made decisions instinctively (song selections). His choices kept everyone happy, especially my daughter. He asked for a list of songs from my daughter and she could not possibly think of everything. Throughout the night, she made several comments about how glad she was that "he played that song" and how she "forgot about that song". She wants him to DJ her wedding even though that may not be for another 5 or 10 years!

    I can't say enough good things about Christian. He made our guests feel special and important. His personality lit up the room and he was just wonderful.

    Thank you, Thumbtack, for the service you provide and a great big thank you to Christian, for keeping our party "alive and moving!"

    Christian was a DJ who helped coordinate music for our wedding. We found out very late in the game that our reception venue had no audio equipment, but Christian was very flexible on helping us with this last minute crisis - and was very willing to work with our modest budget. Christian has a set of reception planning tools that are really easy to fill out, and also really walked us through how to organize the reception. Christian also has his own equipment, and his services (including the equipment) were much more cost effective than renting equipment and using it ourselves would have been. Additionally, I got an e-mail from Christian the morning of the wedding - saying that he couldn't DJ because he was very ill, and already providing the name and contact information of his substitute. I have to say - I was very impressed that Christian took the time to solve a last minute problem, and waited until it was solved to let me know about the switch.

    The substitute, DJ Craig, was also amazing and I'm still getting compliments. In addition to working with our play list, DJ Craig did a great job of moving the reception along and keeping everyone (including some very anxious relatives) happy. I would highly recommend them both to anyone looking for music!

    Christian provided music for our hoiday party for 5 hrs. He was professional,nicely dressed and very willing to meet any requests we had. He got to the party an hour ahead of time and music was playing upon our arrival. He provided every song that we had requested and his choices were also perfect. He had a good understanding of our needs with guests ages from the 20's to the 60's. He was great...hire him!!

  • 5/5 stars October 30, 2013

    Christian came through for us at the last minute. He provided music, some very sepcific songs for a friends 50th wedding anniversary. He was on time and on target with the music. Great Job!

    Christian DJ'd our wedding reception at River Creek country club in Leesburg VA. On Sept 28th, 2013 and he was the absolute professional. He is dependable and played a great selection of music. Christian kept us on schedule and was very smooth in his delivery. Next year we are planning another party and he is definitely our choice for DJ's. He is the best best kept secret of DJ's in Northern Va.

  • 5/5 stars March 4, 2013

    Chris did a great job. Arrived on time and his set up was easy. Music mix was great, flowed with the party. Had all the songs I requested and more. Hope to work with him again soon.

  • 5/5 stars February 25, 2013

    Christian was wonderful! I coordinated with him through email prior to the event, he maintained contact with me the entire time, sent me a music play list for the era I was looking for and we went from there. He showed up and set up in plenty of time for the event, he helped me blow up balloons for my kids and was super flexible with the music selection. I originally wanted older music, but found the children to be dancing more. Christian quickly adapted as well as played special requests on demand. I was so happy with him and if I need a DJ in the future, I will definitely look him up! Thank you Christian, we had a great time!!

  • 5/5 stars November 4, 2012

    Christian was not able to come but Amy Constanza came and did a fantastic job - we would always strongly recommend her :)

  • 5/5 stars October 31, 2012

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Wedding DJ- A bit more formal and a lot more mic work involved.
Company party- Generally, the crowd is going to be very mixed in regards to age range, so you have to make sure that you're playing a lit bit for everyone. Don't just stick to what's on the radio right now.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. My most recent jobs were all weddings. One was in Virginia and two were in Maryland. Each one had a distinct atmosphere and crowd, but with my experience I was able to go with the flow. Personally, the best thing for me was that each of the bride and grooms had a great time. They all thanked me for my services and said that things couldn't have gone more smoothly. Additionally, a few of them also told me that they will keep me in mind going forward when they need DJ services, which is all I can ask for!

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. First thing I would advise is to not shop strictly on price. Regardless of the job you are posting there will always be someone quoting a lower price. Sometimes it is better to spend a little bit more in order to get someone with experience. I have DJ'ed over 100 weddings and each one has been different. I have needed to think quickly on my feet to ensure that not only does everyone have a good time, but it's done as safely as possible. Equipment also counts, a DJ who is cheap may not have the proper equipment for your job or they may have substandard equipment. Quality DJ's will spend the extra money to make sure they have great equipment that will sound great!

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Can we meet? It's very important to meet on a face to face basis.
What type of equipment do you have? There is a lot of difference in DJing equipment. Do you want a DJ with the Kia or speakers or the Ferrari?
How many _____ have you worked? A more experienced DJ will not panic if things do not go exactly as planned.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I am affordable, presentable and professional. I used to be a public school teacher, so I will have no problems speaking in front of your guests or giving directions to move your event along smoothly.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I enjoy working with people and working hard, so they don't have to.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Am I supposed to tip you? Tips are appreciated, not required

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. It really is not as easy as people make it out to be, especially if people want you to MC as well. There is a big difference between being an MC in a club setting and MCing a wedding.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I worked as a set up assistant for one of the most exclusive wedding DJs in Metro DC. It was such a blast that I wanted to start working my own jobs. After working for him for two years I was ready to start. He and I still keep in touch and I am always learning new things from him!

Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.

A. I had a wedding at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Silver Spring. The weather wasn't so good, so people were being a little bit lethargic and there wasn't a wedding planner, so I had to coordinate with the house staff everything by myself. At the end of the night, the bride and groom said a few of their guests had already told them I was the best wedding DJ they have ever seen. The music was great, the order that I played them in was great, and the bride took it upon herself to write me a very lengthy review, it was over 1500 characters long! She also said she will be recommending me to her boss for their holiday party.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. I am always reading about what types of equipment will be hitting the streets as well as what music is hot right now.

Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

A. Bluetooth technology. It will be great when Bluetooth gets to the point that I can do an entire wedding without running any cables at all.

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. Work with a DJ who does what you'd like to do. Learn from them and see the behind scenes efforts involved with becoming successful.

Q. What is your greatest strength?

A. My greatest strength is that I do not crack under pressure. I used to teach 7th graders, they can be a lot more hyper and disrespectful than a crowd of adults.
