    He did a great job for my husband's Gatsby themed birthday party. He made jazzy mixes to match the 1920's theme and engaged the crowd well. He was very flexible with everything and easy going. He's just the kind of person you want at your party.

    I've hired Kidd the DJ for the past 4 years to work an outdoor party during Mardi Gras for long all day events (6 hours). He plays a great mix of songs and keeps the 150+ partygoers engaged throughout the whole night. You're guaranteed to have a great night when he's spinning.

    I've been two a couple of parties that Chris DJ'ed! One of the parties was planned and the other was impromptu. In my opinion, he is one of the BEST, most professional DJ's around. He has wide and eclectic music interests, making him a perfect DJ for any party/taste. I love the way he blends and mixes songs, and knows how to get the party started.....and more importantly, keep it going.

    Came to DJ my nieces high school graduation party and did an awesome job! We gave him a list of artist we wanted played and a genre of music preferred and he played all the right things and some... Will definitely hire this DJ for future events.

    Kidd the DJ both Mc'd and DJ'd my wedding. The whole night was smooth, and he had all of the hits, and the classics for all ages. It couldn't have been a better night

    Kidd the DJ puts on a great show and is really fun to work/collaborate with.

    I recommended this DJ for my best friend's wedding knowing that most of the people going would be sticks in the mud and as a groomsman I didn't want to be responsible for getting everyone into the party mood. Thanks to DJ Kidd I barely had to do anything and his mix for the night ignited a fire under everyone and we danced until the venue closed. Outside of mixing he's a really cool guy and super professional as well. Highly recommended.
