DJ Karl Hunt
We hired C&J for our wedding reception and are very happy we did! Our reception was held in a barn with a loft and we were very nervous that the DJ would not be comfortable in the space but DJ Kurt handled the set-up perfectly! We did have to put together a pretty detailed timeline for the evening & playlists for each section (cocktail hour, dinner, dancing etc) which was a little more time consuming than we expected. The extra time paid off though because our guests loved our song choices and the dance floor was packed even after the DJ left!

Karl, Thanks for making Jens and my night so special. We, and many of our guests, had a magical time and so much of that mood is coaxed by the music. You nailed it. You got the vibe of the crowd and played to them..... Thanks so much!

So I'm the kind of bride that heavily researches every possible option before selecting her DJ/ Entertainment Company. I just have to do it, and I'm sure if you're reading this, you are the same way! Well let me tell you- save yourself time and energy and just pick C&J! C&J was by far our best vendor choice for my wedding... we had the pleasure of having Karl as our DJ. You have GOT to request Karl- he is the man! First of all, he took my "must play" and "please play" selections and blended them together flawlessly! People were on our dance floor all night!! Second, he has a smooth and awesome voice! Third, he really kept the groom and I on schedule. It's so easy to lose track of time as you're surrounded by your family and friends. He made sure to keep things moving and on time! All in all- save yourself the endless DJ search and choose C&J! They will really make your wedding perfect : )
7/16/16 Goldman/ArmijoWedding - Governor Calvert House
I'm reporting that our DJ, Carl,was absolutely fabulous in every way! He acted as our announcer and kept that dance floor full! He was very professional and was quickly tuned into what types of music we wanted for our party! Just an all around great guy!
6/19/16 Hendershot Wedding Anniversary - Chesapeake Bay Foundation
Hi Karl, Thank YOU for everything! You were absolutely awesome! I am so grateful that everything went so well... We are so glad that you and C&J Entertainment could be a part of our special day!! Chris the father/daughter mix rocked and I will send you a video! Thank you all again!!
11/13/15 McSweeney/Hasslinger Wedding - Great Room Savage Mill
I can't recommend C&J enough for your wedding. Chris and Karl were fantastic!!! Chris helped us through the planning process and selecting our music. My dad and I planned a special father-daughter dance which included parts of 4 different songs and Chris patiently worked with my dad until the edit was exactly what he wanted. At the wedding, Karl was everything I could have asked for! He kept the dance floor packed and people excited. Karl kept my husband and I in the loop about what events were next but I didn't feel overwhelmed by information. Guests raved about the music at our wedding and how much fun they had dancing! My other wedding vendors commented to me on how great Karl was and they see wedding DJs all of the time. My day of coordinating loved Karl so much she is going to start recommending him to her future clients. Call C&J and Chris and ask to book Karl for your wedding!
10/3/15 Hambuger/Turk Wedding - Port Annapolis Marina
Chris and Karl were amazing from C&J Entertainment! We worked with Chris for our initial consultation. He was great and walked us through the whole wedding and what type of songs, and how many songs, we should think about. For my husband and I, this was great, because we are not huge dancers or music people. Chris gave us some inspiration and ideas, and we were able to take it from there. About a few weeks before the wedding, we emailed them our preferred songs, and Karl, our DJ for our wedding, gave me a call. He went through what I had sent over, and made sure he had everyone's names correct and pronunciations. During our wedding, Karl was great, he kept to the timeline! He would kindly remind my husband and I what was next, and how much time we had until our next event (ie. bouquet toss, cake cutting, etc). He was also able to work with the list of songs we gave him, and could see our music style and improvise. I would highly recommend this company for any DJ needs!
10/2/15 Lantz/Gibson Wedding - Governor Calvert House
Hello Chris & Karl, We just wanted to say thank you for your service on our wedding day. Karl... You were awesome! You kept me on the dance floor all night and we really appreciate all of your hard work. I hope we weren't too much of a crazy bunch! Great job, I will recommend you guys to any future couple that we know! From the planning to the event, you guys were great! We Thank you!
9/19/15 Anderson/Good Wedding - Howard County Conservancy
We used C&J Entertainment for the DJ at our wedding reception in Annapolis on 8.1.2015. All throughout the planning process I worked with the president, Chris, and he was always responsive and helpful with any questions or ideas I had. Karl was our DJ and he was great also. As the bride, the reception is still a bit of a blur but my guests all told me cocktail hour music was perfect and some good dance songs were mixed in at the right times to get people on the dance floor. Karl was helpful in making sure we stuck to the schedule and if we were off a little bit he was flexible and made sure he let me call the shots of when things would happen. You will receive great service if you choose C&J.
8/1/15 Penn/Parker Wedding - Annapolis Maritime Museum
I worked with Chris before the wedding and Karl was our actual DJ. Chris was extremely helpful during the planning process. He helped me create a timeline and suggested when we do certain things. He edited our main songs and was very quick to respond to emails. Karl was the best DJ we could have asked for. He contacted me the week before the wedding to go over our timeline, names, and song choices. He approached my husband and I a few times the day of to alert us to when he would be making the next announcement and making sure we were enjoying the music he was playing. I cannot recommend them enough!
7/25 Serey/ Whitman Wedding - Londontown, Edgewater, MD
C&J provided a great service for our ceremony and reception music. We worked with Chris and Karl and both were great! Our meetings were with Chris in the C&J office - he provided us with a lot of good ideas and was flexible after we made changes and last minute additions. They are reasonably priced as well. Karl was our actual DJ and although we did not meet with him in advance, I spoke with him the week of to review the agenda, name pronunciations, requests, etc. He was upbeat and also made great recommendations. We would recommend C&J to anyone in the MD/DC area
7/17/15 Buzzard/Bencivenni Wedding - The Gret Room @ Savage Mill
Karl was very polite and went through all of our bridal party name pronunciations to make sure that he got them right. On the day of, Karl was great. He did the ceremony and everything was timed perfectly. For cocktail hour and reception, he played the songs that we requested ahead of time and filled in the gaps with great music. He read the crowd and played music to get people on the dance floor. He was also great with helping me stick to the timeline for the night and would give me 10-15 minute warning before we needed to do first dance, cake cutting, etc. This was extremely helpful, because I did not hire a wedding planner. Later in the night, the dance floor was packed. I received many compliments on the music from friends after the wedding. C&J was not the cheapest DJ that I looked at, but they were reasonable and were well worth the money. A DJ is so crucial to a wedding. I would much rather spend a little more money to have a great time, than save a few bucks and get a cheesy DJ in a glitter tuxedo. A bad DJ can really ruin a wedding!
7/3/15 Everly/Murphy Wedding - Annapolis Waterfron Marriott
I just wanted to thank you and Karl for all of your hard work that went into our wedding this Saturday. Karl was fantastic and our guests had a great time on the dance floor. Thanks again! It was great working with you!
Dj Karl and the music was great. Everyone had a great time.
1/3/15 Bailey/Hampton - Valley Mansion, Towson, MD
Just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how happy we were with Karl and his DJ services at our wedding reception on Saturday. He was very professional and wonderful to work with and he kept the dance floor packed the entire night, which was just what I was hoping for:) Thanks to you and Karl for helping our reception to run so smoothly!
11/29/14 Erin & Mike - Governor Calvert House, Annapolis, MD
I just wanted to let you know that Karl was amazing! Everything was perfect, people were dancing the whole time, and everyone has been talking about how great the music was. Thanks so much!!
11/1/14 Julie & Nick - Gramercy Mansion, Baltimore, MD
Karl was our DJ for our ceremony and reception. He was professional and very polite. He followed my detailed timeline and incorporated all the special songs and tributes I requested. Many people have commented on how great the music was. Chris spent quite awhile with me beforehand editing songs for our special dances and the processional. This vendor is top notch!
9/27/14 Private Property Cambridge, MD Victoria & Ian
Carl was our DJ and he did a wonderful job! He was very polite, low-key, and professional, keeping everything moving without being obnoxious or "look-at-me!" He played all the songs from my extensive must-play list and had a good sense of other songs I would like. If anything, he was TOO good-- the photographer kept trying to pull me over for more photos but I didn't want to stop dancing! Many people commented on how good the music was and a lot of people of all ages were on the dance floor. Thank you, Carl!
9/13/14 Irvine Nature Center, Owings Mills, MD
I loved my DJ, Karl. He was great. Played all of the songs I requested and kept the party going. I have a family that loves to dance and there were no dead moments during my reception. I felt like he really paid attention to the guests and changed the music appropriately. I would definitely recommend them to other brides. Added bonus, you can't beat the price!
8/2/14 Navy Officers' Club, Annapolis, MD
Hi Karl, Thank you again for the fantastic job you did at our wedding last Friday night in Baltimore. Everyone kept telling us how much they enjoyed the music and how great the DJ was. Everything flowed perfectly, and we appreciate you going above and beyond and helping us with a few non-musical items as well. You were so helpful in keeping everything running smoothly and ensuring we were stress free.
7/25/14 Belvedere Hotel, Baltimore, MD
We had Karl Hunt and he was fantastic - he made sure to play our must-have songs, checked in with us when guests requested music, and made suggestions to make sure our night went smoothly. He also came over when we finally sat down to eat to let us know that we had some time and could relax (we were eating as quickly as possible), which was wonderful. Karl also got on the dance floor to teach our guests how to do the wobble - so much fun!
7/19/14 DoubleTree Hotel, Columbia, MD
C &J Entertainment was very helpful and easy to work with in planning our wedding. I was very nervous about the music and there was no need to be. Karl was our DJ and he was absolutely great! He double checked some things with me throughout the reception to make sure we were on the same page and he always found a way to make it work exactly like we wanted it.
3/29/14 Admiral Fell Inn, Baltimore, MD
DJ Karl was fantastic! I had never been to a wedding in which I had so much fun dancing and such however my wedding was that wedding that everyone will be talking about for some time. You would not have thought that they only had 2 weeks to make sure that both my ceremony and reception ran smoothly and was entertaining. They walked me through everything from picking the music for the ceremony and creating a uniquely tailored reception experience in which everyone would eat, dance, and be merry. DJ Karl skills as a master of ceremony were stellar as he kept us on point and focused. Equally impressive were his DJ skills. The music selection, old school blended with new school, was spectacular. Everyone is still talking abou the fun they had.

Karl was an amazing DJ - we wanted a fun wedding with non stop dancing and he definitely made our wishes come true!!
08/03/2012 Tania Chapasko/Ward - Turf Valley Resort, Ellicott City, MD
C&J did a great job following up through the entire planning process, then following through to our wedding day. Karl was very professional and responsive to our requests for how we wanted the day to go. He did a great job feeling out the crowd and changing the music up for how people were feeling. All the guests had a wonderful time.
6/16/12 - Jacobowitz/Wilcox Wedding - Gramercy Mansion, Baltimore, MD
! We just got married on May 5, 2012 and we had been highly recommended to contact C&J Entertainment for our DJ needs. So we did, and after talking to the guys there we were hooked. Karl was our DJ and he did such an awesome job, he kept the party going, he took requests and we was super nice and extremely polite. It was an absoute pleasure working with Karl and all the guys at C&J Entertainment. We highly recommend them. Thanks again Karl!
5/5/12 Rababy/Stoehr Wedding - Maryland Science Center, Baltimore, MD
C&J Entertainment was wonderful to work with throughout the wedding planning process. We met beforehand to go over song choices and they had great suggestions and had a clear understanding of the vibe we were trying to convey through the music. Karl was our DJ and he followed up with us the week prior and was readily available the day before when I had last minute changes! He kept everything on track and would update me throughout the wedding to give me advanced noticed before we transitioned to something (i.e. father/daughter dance, cake cutting, etc) to ensure I was ready. He did a great job with the crowd and we had a packed dance floor the entire time!
4/20/12 Bender/Gregory Wedding - The Mansion at Valley Country Club, Towson, MD
Carl was our DJ and he WAS AWESOME!! He played all of the songs that we wanted, did not play the songs we did not want and selected songs appropriate for our guests. Our dance floor was crowded the entire night because he just continually played great songs... I would highly recommend C&J. They are definitely worth the money.
3/30/12 Kwiatkowski/Buell Wedding - Frederick Douglass Museum, Baltimore, MD
We used C&J as our DJ and couldn't have been happier. Chris, the owner, was very responsive to all our questions and helped us set up our agenda for the entire reception. Carl, our DJ that day, was absolutely awesome. We gave him a general list of music we wanted, along with our special songs, and he was able to incorporate everything beautifully. Our dance floor was packed during the entire reception, and most of it was due to our great DJ Carl! He was really able to feel the crowd and tell what songs to play next without much guidance from us.
10/29/11 Anello Wedding - Loews Hotel, Annapolis, MD
Karl was our DJ and he was fantastic. Mid-wedding we requested that he play things that deviated from our list and he was happy to oblige. Before he made any changes he ran it past me (the bride) to double check if it was ok. Karl was very classy and kept the mood in a very "party" atmosphere, but without being intrusive. I had a great experience and am so happy with the music at our reception!
