Why book DJ Chris Akre?
I am an excellent, super-fun, mobile DJ who provides nonstop musical entertainment for corporate events, class reunions, birthday celebrations, wedding receptions, kids' parties, outdoor picnics, holiday festivities, theme parties, retirement and assisted living get-togethers, and regular gigs at clubs or bars.
I am well versed in house, electronic, pop, rock, swing, Latin, early classics, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, lounge music and new releases. I work with the audience, adjusting on the fly to build, maintain and release energy. I make music fun and danceable for everyone. Best of all, I always fill the floor!
I have a massive collection of music, meaning almost any request can be satisfied...and for the very rare song I don't have, I'll download it on the spot (if available). I hand-pick all my tracks for each event so my sets are lean, mean and geared towards YOUR crowd. I play for my audience, pleasing any age group and even multiple age ranges. The vast majority of my sets are clean with zero explicit lyrics. (However, if requested specifically by the person who hires me, I will gladly cover those types of songs as well.)
I plan meticulously for every event, which also includes dressing appropriately with the highest standard of personal hygiene. I check and double-check my equipment before each performance. I always allow plenty of time to set up, check sound, microphones, and lighting. I use multiple redundant systems, making it extremely difficult for a “musically dead event.” I even have an auxiliary battery-powered system that plays up to four hours without electricity or recharging!
My extensive dance lighting system is programmed for every set. Background lighting, haze, colored fades, multi colored spots, laser chase, the classic mirrored ball, and hard-charging strobes are all part of the show. The majority of events I play are around 100 - 200 people, although I'm happy to DJ for groups of ANY size, smaller...or much larger. So...let's DO this, together!
