Chris was our wedding DJ; we utilized him for prewedding ceremony music, ceremony music, cocktail hour and the reception. He provided us a fantastic package that also included a customized gobo and uplighting for the reception ballroom in our wedding colors. He is experienced and knows what he is doing! Any song requests we had were noted, played and no song was unatainable for him! He also has a very helpful website that brides and grooms use to input song requests, special requests, announcements, order of events...etc! The sound quality was also excellent. I would recommend him to anyone!
Thank you Chris!!
Thank you so much for inviting us to your wedding. We had such a great time! You and your family are amazing and great dancers! :) We wish you both many happy years together.
I highly recommend Premier entertainment. Chis was so easy to work with and met our music needs perfectly. I've heard over and over again from our guests how great our DJ was and we totally agree! Thank you Chris and Premier for making our day so wonderful!
Christopher was easy to work with and quick to respond. He was able to pick up on our music style and didn't disappoint at the reception. Premier also has an interactive website where you fill out all your reception info and can review and choose song requests. It's a great tool that they really should promote more to their customers, possibly giving a quick tutorial on how to work the website and stressing the importance. Overall, I highly recommend Premier.
As a bride who was putting everything together from out of town, Chris made it almost effortless to work with. His app for adding the music you want to play ahead of time was extremely helpful and convenient. We had to do everything over the phone, do to myself and my now husband being out of the state, but Chris's professionalism did not change.
During the reception, he walked through every step with us as the night went on and would give us suggestions of what was typically done at what time to help with flow. He also made sure to emphasize that everything was on our time and no need to rush. We were more than satisfied with him and had multiple people tell us what a fun reception we had.
The service provided was above my expectations throughput the entire planning of our event. Very helpful especially during the actual event!
I enjoyed working with the people from Premier. When we started our contract they gave us access to our own event planner that enabled us to customize what was said and played for the event. They had almost all the songs and genres of music we liked. Mike showed up ready for the event and was very nice. He rolled with all the changes and was pleasant.
I worked with Chris. He was great to work with. He played all the songs that I requested. My only complaint was that he didn't play many slow songs, and according to my guests, did not play many requests. however, he played my requests--so I had a ton of fun!
Jenny, Thank you so much for having me at your wedding reception. I had a blast and your guests were great! It sure did look like everyone had an amazing time :) Congratulations!
Chris from Premier Entertainment provided services at our 2013 wedding. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend him. Shocking based on other reviews, I know...
Chris was to provide pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour music, reception entertainment, a wedding slideshow and uplighting. Sadly, his services did not live up to our expectations or his promises.
Firstly, based on his recommendation, we rented additional speaker equipment as an add-on to our package. The equipment was not used at our ceremony. When our coordinator informed us a few weeks later (Chris never mentioned it!), we inquired as to why and he simply stated that it wasn't needed.
I take issue with this because, I had specifically asked him to check with the venue ahead of time on audio requirements/restrictions and he had agreed to do so. He either did not do this or decided he would bring it anyway.
Adding fuel to the fire, when asked, he could not explain why he brought the equipment if it wasn't needed or why he didn't inform us that is wasn't used.
It was an cost that could have been avoided had Chris done as promised - checking with the venue prior and not bringing the unnecessary equipment.
At cocktail hour the music was nearly inaudible. He was given full access to the space hours prior, we had paid him to set-up early and he had brought the extra equipment, so we still don't understand how this happened.
Then there were the (missing) announcements. We told him that we didn’t want to be officially announced, but that he could announce speeches, dances, etc as usual. Not only did we not have a single announcement for anything, he was silent during the whole reception. No getting the crowd excited, no pumping things up. Nada. Nothing.
The uplighting was also disappointing. We had gone over colors atleast twice. I was sure about one thing – no hot pink. I wanted a blush color or even light pink or amber. No hot pink. And what did we walk into? Hot pink.
The slideshow he created was probably the thing that let us down the most. It was something that we had looked forward to seeing for the first time at our reception. We paid him to bring his own screen out to our venue. So imagine our surprise when our heads were cut off in half the shots? And, at the end our wedding date was wrong!
The slideshow was supposedly available to download - he wouldn’t provide a DVD. After life had resumed to normal, we went to download it only to find that he had wiped it from his system. Though it was poorly made, we had still paid for it and wanted a copy. But, he had wiped it from his system with no warning to us.
When we tried to talk to Chris about this, he chose to do nothing. He gave some half-hearted excuses and explanations. In our last correspondence, he blamed us, the couple that had paid him in full, for all of the mishaps. He gave us flippant excuses and insincere apologies, never offering to make the situation right.
Did our guests know of any of this? No, but WE knew. We knew we had paid for equipment that was never used. We knew that the music wasn’t right during cocktails. We knew that the announcements were never made. We knew that the uplighting was the wrong color. We knew the slideshow was an embarrassment. We knew.
It’s YOUR wedding. It should be how YOU planned it. It should be YOUR dream day. Chris at Premier Entertainment should do his best to help, not do the minimum to get through the evening after making empty promises.
I am so very sorry to hear your experience with us did not meet your expectations. As with all our clients, I hope you know that we strive to provide the best service possible and will do everything in our power to accommodate and service you and yo...
The DJ was the best part of the night. He really got the crowd moving and was very personable and social. He did an excellent job with the announcements and everyone on the guest list loved him! I hope I have more excuses to have a dj in the near future so that I can use this company again
Mr. Abell was great. He was very responsive to all of my emails/calls (any bride can appreciate that). My fiance and I were very picky on how little MCing we wanted. Chris wrote special details we wanted into the contract and abided by each of them. He dressed and acted very professional. He also went out of his way at the reception to make sure we were happy. I would highly recommend Premier Entertainment.
Our DJ, Chris, was AMAZING! He really got the crowd moving and continued that throughtout the evening! He was attentive and made sure everything we wanted played happened!! He has an easy to use system that allowed us to update songs we wanted throughout the process. He was very responsive to emails and calls. He was stress free and made decisions easy to make! He had all the songs we wanted and worked with my dad for a special suprise for me. He helped make my wedding day perfect! I highly recommend him for any DJ need. I will only use and recommend Chris from Premier Entertainment from now on!!
Thank you! You are an amazing couple and it was great to work with you. Congratulations.
Chris was a nice guy, but there were some songs played off of our no play list. There was a dead time of about 30 minutes without music playing during the middle of the dance time. He left off two items we had instructed him to do on the order of events. Things that you don't realize were missing until after. His website was helpful, but I feel like he was not playing the list of songs we had created on the list. It wasn't the worst experience, but I definitely wanted a little more.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to preform at your wedding reception. We apologize your not completely satisfied with the experience and our intention is to make every wedding reception the best is can possibly be. After 10 years of experienc...
Chris not only did our wedding reception but he also played the music at the ceremony. He was easy to work work and I loved the automated service and how I could do just about everything online (even my song requests). I used special songs for my ceremony and he was able to get me exactly what I needed with no issues and was eager to help. He kept the party going through the reception and everyone had a blast. Thanks so much!
This DJ was very friendly, entertaining, & knew how to keep the party going! I highly recommend this DJ, he was definitely the best wedding DJ I've seen or heard! The bride & groom had quite a few special requests & he made it all run so smooth.
He was easy to work with. We talked on the phone a few times and met a couple days before the wedding. We discussed our music choices and talked about the details of the evening. Our entrance speeches cake cutting first dance etc. He made us feel at ease.
