DJ Chris Temple
What my recent client’s are saying!
Chris was the first DJ we met with and we knew after our first meeting that he was the man for the job. The music at our reception was very important to us and we wanted to make sure that we chose someone who could get the party started and keep it going. Chris really delivered- our guests were on the dance floor all night long. From young to old, Chris was able to read the crowd and play songs to keep everyone happy and entertained. He has clearly been doing this for a while and knows what he is doing. He flawlessly introduced the wedding party and was able to draw attention to different parts of the reception ie cake cutting, first dances, garter toss, etc. He was worth the extra money we spent and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to ensure a great party!

CHRIS IS AWESOME. SERIOUSLY THE BEST!
I planned my entire wedding. Don't waste your time searching for the perfect DJ. Chris @ C&J is the best. There are multiple reasons, but I'm not allowed enough words in this box. He is super responsive, energetic and kind, and kept me sane during my wedding. The music was the perfect volume and flow. EVERYONE has been talking about how great the music was 2 weeks now after my wedding! Do yourself a favor, go with Chris.
October 18, 2014, Lauren & Brendan – Belvedere Hotel, Baltimore, MDChris Temple was a fantastic DJ who kept our wedding moving from start to finish! He met with us several times prior to the wedding to discuss everything from the specific songs we wanted played to how the evening would flow and everything in between. He played every song we requested, even to the point of obtaining specific songs he didn’t already have in his very impressive library. When he played his own music, it was perfectly balanced so the older and younger people at the wedding had fun all night. Our meetings prior to the event were fun and casual. Chris has a great sense of humor, but was nothing but professional and courteous to our guests, making sure everyone had fun all night without ever drawing unnecessary attention to himself I had several people come up and say that we had a great DJ and they loved the music during the cocktail hour, dinner and dancing! A DJ can make or break a party, and Chris definitely made the night unforgettable for us. I'm going to recommend C&J Entertainment to all of my engaged friends!
October 12, 2014, Chelsea & Nick – Historic Londontown, Edgewater, MDSelecting our DJ was one of the most difficult decisions during the planning process and I cannot be more pleased that we hired Chris Temple for our wedding. He provided absolutely everything I could've possibly imagined and more for our wedding day! After the initial phone consultation, I knew right away that he was what I was looking for in a DJ. He was very professional and responded to any questions and emails right away. I didn't have an exact vision for the reception, so Chris suggested an order of events, song choices for different parts of the wedding, and many other ideas that were perfect and exactly what I hoped for. Chris is funny and outgoing, and his energy had everyone out dancing the entire night from the very first song to the last. All of my guests commented on how amazing he was and how his song choices were so great. He also provided the uplighting for the reception and spent an hour with me on the phone working with the colors to get the exact color I envisioned which also turned out perfect. If you are looking for a fun wedding reception and someone to keep all of your guests on the dance floor the entire night, Chris Temple is an obvious choice for a wedding DJ!!!!

I just wanted you to know that everyone I talk to raves about how amazing you were at the wedding!
September 27, 2014, Caitlin & Ryan – Private Residence, Ellicott City, MD
Chris Temple was an amazing DJ! I firmly believe that a wedding is remembered by how good a DJ is. Chris played amazing songs and kept the flow of the party going so well that people are still talking about our wedding months later.
Chris is also very easy to talk to and invests himself emotionally in your wedding. It really made my wife and I happy to see this.
September 26, 2014, Tony & Emily – Four Seasons Hotel, Baltimore, MD
Working with Chris was so effortless and easy! At the last minute our musician fell through to play our introductions (Ceremony music) and Chris, without stress, played our songs! He even kept our timeline on track and was so accommodating! He's got a great sense of humor, too, to help get through the whole craziness of the day!
September 19, 2014, Emily & Joe – Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Annapolis, MD
Chris Temple and his assistant were absolutely fantastic, from wedding planning all the way through our big day. C&J Entertainment was recommended to us by a friend who is an event planner, and who had attended a number of events with Chris before. My now-wife and I met Chris on an evening after work (he was very accommodating to our busy work schedules!), and he helped us plan on our big day, including recommending which parts of the ceremony would require songs (there were a lot more than we thought), and helping us determine what kind of mood we were hoping to achieve. On our wedding day, Chris was incredible in ensuring that everything went perfectly. We received numerous compliments from our guests (and our parents!) that the music for the day was absolutely perfect, from the cocktail hour all the way through the last dance. Chris was so helpful in ensuring that all elements of the day - cocktail hour, meal, first dance, party-dance, cake-cutting, etc - transitioned seamlessly. We had an absolutely perfect day, and Chris was a massive part of that. I would highly, highly recommend C&J Entertainment to anyone looking for a crew that is great to work with, knows music in and out, and is incredible at ensuring that the big day is absolutely perfect.
September 6, 2014, Ginny & Kyle – Pazo Restaurant, Baltimore, MD
Absolutely an amazing wedding experience! We considered 3 other DJs. But as soon as we met with Chris we knew he was the best DJ for us! We actually had a list of songs that we wished to hear during cocktail hour and the dance party. We were provided with honest positive feedback about our music choices. Very open minded to work with us. Throughout the entire wedding we had such a great time and guests commented that it was best wedding they ever attended! It was really nice to not have to worry about wrong songs being played at the wrong time or anything. Very professional, reasonably priced, and over all fun time! Everyone danced the entire time. What an awesome experience we had and I'd suggest C and J entertainment to anyone for any type of event. Thanks C and J for an awesome wedding we'll never forget!
September 1, 2014, Dan & Allie – Elkridge Furnace Inn, Elkridge, MD
My husband and I looked at several DJ's but Chris at C&J definitely stood out. He had a great personality and was a lot of fun to work with!
August 31, 2014, Jennifer & Dan – Governor Calvert House, Annapolis, MD
Chris was a great DJ and very professional. Lots of fun to work with. Just what we were hoping for on our big day. He was accommodating and even made last minute changes the maid of honor called him with on the day of the wedding! Everyone was out on the dance floor.
August 12, 2014, Kerry & Mark – Royal Sonesta Hotel, Baltimore, MD
Chris was absolutely amazing. Not only does he do a great job at the party but planning the wedding is actually fun with Chris. Many other parts of the wedding planning I felt like I wasn’t getting the help I should for the amount of money I was shelling out. Chris took all that away. He knows exactly what he’s doing and it will make this part of planning a wedding a breeze.
July 19, 2014, Chelsea & Seth – Normandy Farms, Blue Bell, PA
Chris was fantastic. He helped us think through our music selections and helped define the order of events for the evening during our first meeting. He was very knowledgeable, helpful, and accommodating. He was great to work with and really made the planning process easy.
During the wedding, Chris helped move things along, was incredibly professional, and made sure everyone had a great time. The music was exactly right for each part of the evening from the cocktail hour to the dancing at the end. The wedding was exactly what we wanted and the music and entertainment was a large part of that. I would definitely recommend C&J to others looking for an outstanding DJ.
July 4, 2014, Liberty & Jeremy – Governor Calvert House, Annapolis, MD
Chris at C&J was amazing! Our DJ was Chris at C&J Entertainment and he was the best!! We were so happy with the process leading up to our event and talking through our song choices and preferences with him, he was very helpful. He knew what he was talking about and told us the truth. We could not have asked for a better DJ. On the day of our wedding, everything went very smoothly thanks to the music and Chris! He was very funny as well and kept our guests laughing. You won't be disappointed if you choose Chris as your DJ!
June 28, 2014, Casey & Eric – Walker’s Overlook, Walkersville, MD
C&J was AMAZING! My husband and I still talk about how great he was and so do our friends! We actually wound up needing Chris to do our cocktail hour somewhat last minute but it was no problem for him. He really listened to what we wanted and took the time to get us comfortable with our choices, showing us many possibilities and helping us narrow it down. Not to mention Chris got the party going and KEPT it going! I had friend comment that they wanted to sit down to rest, but couldn't because they wanted to dance to every song! I would recommend C&J in a heartbeat and I have to several ppl looking for a wedding or event DJ!
April 26 2014, Rachel & Kevin – Enoch Pratt Library, Baltimore MD
I have never been to a wedding where folks were on the dance floor the entire night! All of our guest commented that this is the best wedding they've ever attended and C & J Entertainment was a big part of that! Chris made a point to ensure that all names were pronounced correctly. He 'read' the crowd and chose music that kept everybody moving! He was a great MC too. I would highly recommend C & J Entertainment
April 5, 2014, Leyanne & Chris – Westin Hotel, Annapolis, MD
My husband and I originally planned for a Christmas time wedding, but we had to change the date to February. We also were doing all of our wedding planning from the West Coast. Chris was great at working with us via email to set everything up, and called several times to verify everything was just how we wanted it. The week of the wedding, a bad storm rolled through the area, and interrupted the travel plans for our hired DJ, so Chris graciously stepped in without charging us any extra even though he usually goes for a higher fee. He was fun to work with and kept everyone on the dance floor the entire time. There were a few last minute changes to ceremony/reception order the day of, and Chris was great at ironing out any wrinkles and flexing to the changes (I don't think I was super helpful or directive in terms of what I wanted, so I really appreciated it). Chris also had a few great suggestions on songs, etc, that were fun additions to the fun party atmosphere we wanted to encourage.
C&J Entertainment provided music for both the ceremony and the reception, and everything went pretty much exactly how we wanted it. They were easy to work with, flexible, and fun - I definitely recommend!!
February 15, 2014, Mallory & Dan – Maritime Museum, Annapolis, MD
DJ Chris exceeded all of our expectations! Hosting an employee event with over 650 people, he took on the challenge of entertaining guests from all age groups. He surely knows how to read the crowd, the music selection was incredible and he kept the dance floor packed all night long. He quickly responded to any questions, comments, or concerns we had throughout our planning process and we look forward to having him at future events. We would highly recommend DJ Chris to anyone looking for a DJ that goes above and beyond, enjoys his job and will entertain you in ways you never expected!
January 25, 2014, 2013 SECU Corporate Party – Westin - BWI, Linthicum, MD
DJ Chris was very fun to work with and he did a great job at our wedding reception. He had everyone engaged and dancing, and kept us on schedule. Very professional and organized, highly recommended!
December 7, 2013 Erin & Paul – Newton White Mansion, Mitchellville, MD
Absolute fantastic experience working with Chris! He worked very hard to make sure everything ran smoothly and that we had the perfect song selections. He made the reception absolutely perfect and enjoyed by all. Kudos to him and his hard work!
November 30, 2013 Mary & James – Governor Calvert House, Annapolis, MD
Chris from C&J Entertainment was the DJ at our Annapolis wedding this past weekend. He was incredible! Not only is he such an experienced professional who provided us with phenomenal service from start to end but he is also seriously gifted in song selection and reading a crowd. Our dance floor was packed the ENTIRE night (even during dinner). Our guests had the time of their life and sweated through their nice clothes to prove it. Our #1 goal for our wedding was for it to be a FUN dance party and without Chris that would not have happened. He made sure every detail was thought of & an added bonus is that he is hilarious and now feels like a friend of ours. I would recommend him to anyone planning a wedding without hesitation. He is, hands down, the best DJ I've ever seen at a wedding. THANK YOU CHRIS
November 23, 2013 Chrissie & Mike – Waterfront Marriott, Annapolis, MD
Hands down ……our wedding reception was amazing thanks to Chris!!! From the minute we met him it was if we had known him for years!!! Funny, down to earth, and knew how to plan a party!! It was if we were in the moment even during our initial consultation. Chris outlined our entire reception, gave us great suggestions, and he kept us on time. Our dance floor was always pumping and what an amazing job he did with our intro song and first dance mix!!! Don't even think about planning your wedding with anyone else!
November 15, 2013 Stephanie & Nick – Renaissance Hotel, Baltimore, MD
Hi Chris, I just wanted to take the time to thank you again for the amazing job you did with the wedding. Your courteous and professional manner was much appreciated. Your attention to the details was needed during the weather issues. The wedding and reception was amazing and I could not have wished for anything more.
October 26, 2013 Mother of The Bride – Brittland Manor, Chestertown, MD
Trevor and I just wanted to thank you so much for all your work and attention to detail throughout the whole reception. We can't thank you enough! We had the time of our life! We got what we wanted and everyone was dancing all night long. The whole entire day was just PERFECTION!! We had so many compliments from people about how great the music was and I had a lady say she was writing every song down to make a play list for her parents anniversary party.We can't thank you enough and truly enjoyed working with you!
October 19, 2013 Anna & Trevor – Carroll’s Creek, Annapolis, MD
DJ Chris is awesome! My husband loved working with him for our wedding and we cannot stop talking about how down-to-earth and entertaining he is. Our whole family is still raving about the wedding and I continuously keep giving Chris the credit. The DJ is "THE" person who keeps the party rolling and ensuring folks are having fun. Chris has done numerous weddings (I've been to 2 plus my own) and everyone raves about him. I would HIGHLY recommend DJ Chris and his services at C&J Entertainment for your wedding. You will not be disappointed.
October 18, 2013 Kim & Jeff – Hunt Valley Golf Club, Phoenix, MD
We used Chris at C&J for our reception last weekend and had an absolutely wonderful time! Nearly all of our guests stayed on the dance floor the entire night! He asks the right questions in advance to prepare- we also used his recommendation for the schedule of the night’s events.
He was a great MC, introducing himself to family members and speech givers, ensuring everyone knew and was comfortable with the plan. Throughout the night he read the crowd perfect, keeping the energy and excitement high all night. We had a lot of amateur DJs in the crowd, and hearing them declare it 'The best night ever' was the ultimate compliment. Thanks Chris!
October 12, 2013 Tara & Rob, Aspen Wye River Conference Center, Queenstown, MD
Chris was amazing! He is so high energy ALL the time. Meeting with him really gives you an idea of how your entertaining your event will be. Chris gave us power over our music selections (everything from country-oldies-old school rap-pop) and somehow melded it into an outstanding party. We are dying to come up with an excuse to use Chris in the future!
October 5, 2013 Jaclyn & Jeff – Kent Manor Inn, Stevensville, MD
Thank you so much for making the reception so great!! Everyone LOVED the music and we had a great time!
September 21, 2013 Jess & Carrick – Bretton Woods Golf Club, Germantown, MD.
My husband and I are so thankful that we were able to have Chris as our DJ for our ceremony and reception. He was such an easy going and fun person to work with and helped make everything so much easier. We had no clue what we were doing and how everything was supposed to work... there are so many little details that you don't know exists until you are asked! Chris was such a major help with all those details. He was so much more than a DJ. There were a few glitches in the power that was made available to him and he worked through it and made it a beautiful night. He had great intuition and played songs based on the crowd and what songs they would dance to. He was able to adapt quickly to last minute changes to the plan and whatever needed to happen with the photographer. With Chris, you don't really need a wedding planner :) He is fabulous and I would highly recommend him to anyone! Remember, A DJ is THE person you don't want to skimp on... he can make or break your wedding!
September 8, 2013 Frances & Adam – Port Annapolis Marina, Annapolis, MD.
I knew the second that we stepped into Chris' office that he had to be our wedding DJ. He was self-deprecating and funny and instantly put us at ease -- as well as kept us on our toes. He was very professional and walked us through every step of the wedding process as far as the music was concerned and even offered up some suggestions outside of his realm of expertise when we were confused with things -- including the type of lights he preferred from different vendors! Chris was great at staying on top of things that he needed from us, and didn't hesitate to call or put the entire burden of responsibility on us, which I very much appreciated. By the time we got to the "day-of", I was completely comfortable with Chris taking control of situations, and he even planned a surprise with my flower girl to throw rose petals on the ring bearer when they were introduced during the reception. Chris rolled with the punches and I received a tremendous amount of compliments on they way he mixed our musical selections -- starting with the fun older stuff for the older people in the group and slowly moved up in decades for us all to enjoy throughout the night. He kept people on the dance floor and the mood upbeat. I would be happy to recommend C & J Entertainment to anybody who is getting married -- not only were they a fabulous company to work with, Chris a fabulous DJ, they seemed to really care and be invested in the whole experience -- which meant the most to me!
September 1, 2013 Liz & James – Governor Calvert House, Annapolis, MD.
Chris was absolutely phenomenal. One of the highlights of our reception was the music and the fact that the dance floor was NEVER empty!! Our guests were raving about him the next day and thought he really did a great job with keeping the crowd entertained and the music flow was perfect. He did an excellent job with keeping my groom and I on schedule with the planned events and we couldn't thank him enough for making the night so memorable. This was one of the easiest parts of the planning process and Chris couldn't have done a better job with providing great music and entertainment for the night!
August 17, 2013 Amanda & Andrew – Governor Calvert House, Annapolis, MD
Thank you SO much for everything yesterday! We had a wonderful time and the music was fantastic. The whole vibewas perfect and we have received so many compliments on the music already!
July 27, 2013 Emma & Mark – Waverly Mansion, Marriottsville, MD
Thank you so much for all of your hard work entertaining us and our guests at our wedding! Everyone had a fantastic time and we were so happy that you kept everyone motivated to dance!
July 14, 2013 Liz & Greg – Governor Calvert House, Annapolis, MD
THANK YOU for everything that you did to make our wedding, "the best wedding I've ever been to" as many of our guests said. I can't' even begin to tell you the number of people who said that they had the absolute best time because the music never stopped and was so much fun! I attribute much of that to your talents.
I never had any doubts that you would keep the party going all night, but I couldn't not let you know what an incredible job you did. Steve and I had such an amazing time and I am so thankful you were there to celebrate with us and be a part of our super awesome party!
June 29, 2013 Barbara & Steve – Belvedere Hotel, Baltimore, MD
I'm not sure whether I already thanked you....BUT....whether I did or not...I just wanted to let you know that we think you did a fabulous job at Jen & David's wedding at the Four Seasons!
Frankly, we were reminded of it this past weekend, when we attended a wedding in New York.
Although the wedding was very nice....and, they had a good-sounding, 10-piece band....I'll take Jen & David's wedding (and your "DJ-ship") any day! (Obviously, it's a completely unbiased opinion).
Needless to say, if any of our friends need someone, we'll give you the highest of recommendations.
May 26, 2013 Jennifer & David – Four Seasons Hotel, Baltimore, MD
I don't know what more to say than just "Absolutely Perfect". Chris was awesome! In our search for wedding DJ's, we setup a meeting with C&J (Chris) to see if they would be a good fit for our wedding. Within 5 minutes of leaving C&J, we emailed Chris and asked him to be our DJ at the wedding. We couldn't have made a better decision. Everyone danced at our wedding, and even my fiance's Grandmother didn't want to leave at 11pm! Chris made our wedding so much fun, and we received so many compliments from our guests on how great the DJ was. We are so thankful that C&J was such a special part of our special day. Highly recommended!
May 18, 2013 Michelle & Matt – Maryland Science Center, Baltimore, MD
Thank you so much for making our wedding what it was. Bryan and I had the time of our lives. I cannot tell you how many people have told us our DJ was amazing, and you were. Finding a DJ was the most nerve-wrecking thing for me to do, and you just took all my worries and tossed them out the window. From the first time we met you until our last dance, you handled everything from start to finish. I'm pretty sure we wouldn't have cut the cake without you! The dance floor was packed the entire night and we definitely have you to thank for that. My legs are STILL sore. You definitely have a gift, thank you so much for sharing it with us. If you need any referrals at any time, please do not hesitate and send the couples our way! We really can't thank you enough for making our special day so incredible.
You're the best!
April 13, 2013 Becca & Ryan – Renditions Golf Course, Davidsonville, MD
Chris was great to work with!! A lot of energy, good ideas and suggestions, and he really knows his music! We would definitely recommend him to anyone!
March 9, 2013 Brittany & Russ – Tremont Grand Hotel, Baltimore, MD
I was SO PLEASED with C&J!! All of our guests AND my husband and I are still sore from all the dancing! Chris was personable, funny, and able to read the "mood" of my party-people, keeping them on the floor all night long. Don't hesitate, use C&J!!!!
January 26, 2013 Tiffin & Nick – The Other Barn, Columbia, MD
We've been to weddings where a bad dj ruined the whole party. We met quite a few before we found the right one. Chris from C&J was awesome. He has a kind of weird sense of humor when you talk to him one-on-one, but we thought he was hysterical. At our reception, he knew exactly what to play when and kept the party going strong until the end of the night. The dance floor was always packed!
