Chris Marx is absolutely amazing! When looking for DJs, we saw Chris had all 5-star reviews, and after booking him for our wedding--we completely understand why! Weddings can be stressful to plan, especially entertaining 200 people for hours. Chris took the stress out of it all, from the planning stages to the actual reception. My husband and I have a wide variety of musical taste, ranging from country to pop to hip hop to rock. Chris was able to navigate his way through to keep everyone in the crowd entertained from beginning to end. I like the personal touches he added to the cocktail hour and reception. Chris also had a previous relationship with our venue, which made us feel at ease. He even had the Penn State fight song on his playlist, which he played to end the night--a perfect ending for this PSU alum!! He takes a few pictures to commemorate the night, which was such a nice touch to see in the days after our wedding! We love Chris and would recommend him time and time again!!!
We couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our wedding back in December, 2017! My wife and I live in Pittsburgh, but our wedding was in Philly so we had to plan everything with Chris over Skype. He did an awesome job communicating with us and making sure that every detail was accounted for. Very much a detail-oriented person which was great because the reception went exactly according to plan. He had our guests up and dancing the whole time and everyone loved him.
Chris did an amazing job at our daughter's wedding this past December! He was easy to work with, very friendly and accommodating. Chris reads a crowd well so everyone had music that they like to dance to throughout the evening. I highly recommend him!!
Chris DJed our September 2017 wedding. He made the whole process extremely easy. We also had a band so Chris coordinated with them, played the cocktail hour and during the band breaks. I received many compliments on the DJ! The whole wedding was pretty DIY so it was a bit chaotic but Chris made the day seem like a breeze. Thanks Chris!!
Chris did an awesome job with our wedding! He was organized, friendly, and accommodating! He really made the vision of our wedding night a reality. He played all of the songs we wanted and everything went so smoothly! There was never a dull moment during the reception! He had everyone on the dance floor from start to finish, even though it was a Sunday night, alcohol-free wedding! Would highly recommend him!!!
We had the good fortune to know Chris prior to our engagement, I say good fortune because he was one thing our guests couldn’t stop talking about. From planning, to ceremony, to reception Chris was on top of everything, helping the flow and coordination of our event and festivities. He made us feel super comfortable and completely relaxed throughout the planning process. He got EVERYONE out on the dance floor all night long. Relatives and friends alike were out dancing the night away. The transitions and song choices were on point for the mood and the atmosphere. Chris has a true talent for picking the perfect songs at the perfect moment. If you’re looking for someone who genuinely cares about what they do for a living and takes his job seriously and with commitment Chris is your guy. We felt relaxed knowing our guests would be enjoying themselves at our reception, he went above and beyond what we expected of him. You will not be disappointed when booking Chris he was worth every penny and then some!
We found our DJ, Art Armani, for our September 23, 2017 wedding through Chris Marx Events. We did not have a vision AT ALL for the music on our wedding day. Art took the reigns and we could not be more happy that he did. He is truly a professional and was able to set the tone for every point of the wedding - from ceremony to reception. Thank you Art and Chris Marx Events for being such a pleasure to work with and helping to make our wedding day so special!
Chris Marx was absolutely fantastic. He maintained an excellent pace throughout the wedding, had an amazing musical selection and was great with suggestions for songs. Highly recommend to anyone!
If you need a DJ for your wedding, don't think twice. Chris was so easy to work with, always responsive to our questions, and very patient with our requests. He provided suggestions to make the night perfect, and most importantly he orchestrated the flow of the night seamlessly and kept the dance floor packed for many hours! I recommend Chris to everyone!
Chris was the best choice for our wedding day! From the first phone conversation I had with him you could tell he loves what he does! He was super fast in responding to any questions or concerns I had, I know my emails got annoying! He really tries to get to know you and what you are looking to get out of your BIG day. I was so relaxed after our in person meeting a few weeks before the wedding. He went over everything with us, from songs to play, not play, play if requested. He really did think of it all. He was big on the little touches. During our meeting he talked with Greg (The groom) about having tissues in his pocket for the mothers in case they started crying. Greg ended up needing them himself so it was perfect! After our entrance into the reception, he gave Greg a microphone and he was able to say a little something and officially ask me for "our first dance." It was adorable, everyone loved it! He added a monogram to dance floor and even hashtags lighting that shined up onto the walls! Honestly he thinks of so many things that you know you can relax and enjoy your day! Like turning off any dance lighting during your first dance so it doesn't mess up your professional photos. He also recorded our ceremony for us and took photos during the reception! The photos during the reception were such a nice surprise! They are from such a different perspective then all the other pictures we had. He is truly amazing, you will not be disappointed!!
Where do I start. Chris Marx and I started out over a year and a half ago. He took the time to talk to me for over 40 minutes about venues he has been in and gave me the insiders scoop when I was a clueless bride even before booking with him. Chris helped me plan an amazing surprise for my fiancé and in secret helped my fiancé plan a surprise for me at the reception. My friends, family and other vendors raved about him. Chris played great music and kept everyone on the dance floor. He was very prompt with my emails and texts and even checked in on me periodically just to see how my planning process was going. Best decision I ever made to book him! I would not choose anyone else to hold this important role in my wedding day. Chris absolutely nailed it!! Thanks so much Chris ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
AMAZING!! From the initial call, to the planning meeting, to the actual wedding, everything was amazing! Chris was so much more than a DJ. He really set the mood and MCd the event. Not only that, but he also was able to get us so great photos that allowed us to enjoy some pics very quickly! Everything was exactly as we had hoped it would be and he gave us great suggestions to make sure that our wedding went smooth and really showed who we are as a couple. I could go on and on. BOOK HIM!!! Just do it. You will not be disappointed!
Chris Marx was the ultimate professional and great DJ for our wedding. Most importantly, all of our guests were on the dance floor the entire night. Chris goes the extra mile and we were extremely blessed and fortunate to have him with us. He traveled and met with us several times before our wedding to get to know each other and find out exactly what we were looking for. He is very funny and witty without being too much. He is extremely good at returning phone calls, emails, and communicating. Unfortunately this is not the norm for other entertainers and wedding vendors. With Chris he legitimately cares about making your wedding the best day of your life and will do whatever he can to make it happen. He really became a good friend to my wife and I, we could not recommend him enough to anybody looking for a DJ for any occasion. Thank you Chris for helping Jessa and I have the perfect wedding, we were extremely fortunate to have you with us. There are many more adjectives and phrases we could say here, bottom line if you need a DJ look no further and hire Chris.
Chris did a great job DJing our wedding. He not only DJ'ed the wedding, he provided a signature lighting feature, recorded the ceremony for us, and did an extremely impressive introduction of me and my husband. Chris is nothing but professional. He was easy to get in contact with and was also very responsive. We had a few last minute changes which Chris didn't bat an eye to. Our dance floor stayed pretty full the entire evening. He was very agreeable with playing anything we want to hear. We would definitely recommend Chris's services for a wedding or any grand event! Overall, he did a fantastic job!
