Introduction: Hey there! I'm Chris. Let me start off by saying that if you choose to hire me, I'll be working directly for you. What I mean by that is, a lot of these production companies hire multiple DJs and they hire them out sort of randomly. Whereas if you hire me, I'll be handling the entire event from start to finish. I've always had a deep appreciation for music and there's nothing more fun for me than to play for a crowd and get the party going. I find it very rewarding creating a positive environment where people can let loose and just have a good time. I'm experienced, professional, and I have high quality sound and lighting equipment to help create the perfect atmosphere.

Chris, of Prototype Productions, is an excellent and professional individual who did such an outstanding job at a recent wedding at our Club. At this particular wedding, only a third of the bride and groom’s guests attended their reception and the bride and groom were deeply upset by this. Enter Chris who will treat a room with his warm, fun, and inviting DJ style no matter if there are 1,000 in attendance or one. Nothing felt forced and he was able to make everyone feel relaxed and in capable hands. He guided the bride and groom through the night and at the end of the day they, and all their guests, went home happy (after lots of laughing and dancing!) It is this kind of professionalism and care that we value here at our Club, and want every single one of our clients to experience. We can't wait to see him again!

Simply stated we were blown away at what Chris did at our wedding. Tim knew all the music we wanted played and kept the party going with his own choices that fit right in with our party. The most important thing Chris did was basically run the show. I did not realize how vital a DJ is to the overall success of a wedding and Kate and I feel so lucky we found Chris. He kept us on our overall time frame and basically orchestrated everything so perfect. I am still in amazement over how well it went and one of the biggest parts besides Kate saying yes is prototype productions and Chris. Thanks again

Chris was absolutely fantastic. He was our DJ at our wedding in October. He was extremely considerate, courteous with our family and friends and the music was seamless. He made the whole day so incredibly relaxing. We will book Chris for any event we ever do in the future.

Professional, diligent, friendly and amazing! Just a few words that accurately represent Chris and his company. Chris's execution of the music was perfect! He even had to custom edit a few songs for us as our wedding set up was unique and he nailed it. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a wedding DJ! With all of the stress we had that led up to the wedding knowing all of the music was in Chris's hands relieved all of our stress. After submitting numerous songs we absolutely had to have played on our special day he nailed all of the other music we would have wanted. It was perfect! Thanks Chris!

Working with Chris for our clients wedding was a great experience! He arrived on time, was responsive to my emails and a very pleasant and professional person to work with as wedding coordinator and DJ correspondence. He knows how to feel out the crowd and had everyone on the dance floor dancing the night away and having a great time! Will be recommending him for sure!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We'll basically just exchange a few emails, all I need from you is the location of the event, what type of music you want me to play, and which lighting package you want (if any). I will show up early to set up and I'll stay until you need me to.
