We had Dj Chris Dj my Sororities formal and everyone loved it! He really made the event come to life. He was very professional and very flexible. He really understood the vibe we were going for and fed off the energy of the crowd. He also has an app that everyone can go and request songs on before and during the event. I know the girls in my sorority appreciated that because it just made everyone so much easier. Highly Recommend DJ Chris Yates!
