Having had the pleasure to see him work at a few private events, he is always professional and brings a great energy to the crowd. I would recommend him for any affair
Chris a.k.a. DJ BKR, what a class, interactive and amazing job he did for us on the most important day of our lives. Chris is perhaps the finest wedding DJ in the bay area. I have been working in this field for 34 years, off & on. I am humbled to witness the skill and joy that this guy Chris, DJ BKR brought to our party. I personally have entertained audiences all over the world and I want to give my absolute highest recommendation because I only work with the best, get it! This guy is the best. I can't thank you to much Chris. You made he day!
Cris Ratkovic, from BKR Productions, worked as DJ at the 2010 Start! Heart Walk in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. This fundraising event was geared towards local companies and included families and friends, totaling over 400 people. Cris was delightful to work with on the day of the event as well as during the planning process.
Despite the dreary weather, Cris arrived early to the walk with a positive attitude. After setting up his own equipment, he kindly took the time to help me start a finicky generator. I will forever be grateful for his effort!
As the participants and volunteers arrived, Cris set the tone of the day by playing great music. He was able to read the excitement of the crowd and played the appropriate music which set the pace for the day.
Cris is both professional and personable. His great disposition made working with him easy and enjoyable and his music really made the event. I would absolutely work with him again.
I give Cris Ratkovic my heartfelt recommendation for your next event!
Last Saturday evening, we held an outdoor gathering to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We hired Chris as our DJ. He met with us a couple of times before the event to see the general layout, and discuss the types of music we liked. The evening came, and Chris showed up to set up his equipment. He was both very easy to get along with and professional. When the party started, he played to our group of friends. He found out what kind of music they wanted to hear, and adjusted his pre-prepared playlist to match the group.
Everyone had a great time at our party, and we think the DJ, Chris, had a lot to do with their enjoyment. We would definately hire him again, and strongly recommend him to everyone.
If you're looking for a DJ for your wedding then look no further than Cris at BKR. My husband and I got married October 21st up in Napa and Cris and his assistant were amazing! My brother referred Cris to me after spending many nights at The Villa doing Trivia and Koaroke. I decided to take my brother's suggestion after going on the BKR website & seeing that weddings were indeed what Cris is all about. I was more than an impressed. Cris is an awesome DJ, super professional, organized and fun. He kept my husband and I on track with his wedding music worksheet. We were able to decide on all aspects of our wedding music from beginning to end. If there was anything that I couldn't come up with or decide on Cris was there to fill on the blanks. The guy knows what he is doing in terms of keeping the party going and appealing to all age groups at a wedding.
Cris was fantastic and my husband and I can't thank him enough for the lovely wedding that he was apart of. We want to get married all over again just to have him dj the event! Thank you Cris!!!!
Cris is fantastic. He was supposed to dj our wedding when we first tried to put it together. When we canceled he even gave us our deposit back. Then to make up for it dj'd my 30th birthday at the lariat. It was soo much fun. The karaoke was fun. Then we finally had our wedding in November and he was amazing. Can't wait for the next event.
I was not excited about the music for my wedding. It was just one of those things that had to be there and quite frankly I was tortured about it, because my wedding was going to be a very small event, with a very wide range of kinds of people, and I knew from the beginning that dancing was probably going to be tortured and mostly people would skulk into corners and chat with each other. That's definitely what I was planning on doing!
Enter Cris of BKR Productions. First, he came over to discuss the music. I pretty much told him what I wrote in the first paragraph. He sighed and made a o_O face, but actually managed to get me excited about the music part of my wedding. We made a date to go and see the venue - right away, I felt "taken care of" and felt like I could leave the whole "music thing" to this man, because he obviously knows what he is talking about. A strong, confident type.
When we arrived at the site of my reception to be, I felt somewhat ashamed that I have to torture this poor man like this. My reception site was totally romantic, an old, stone sunken cellar, composed completely of deep rock walls, concrete floor and no roof. (With romantic vines creeping down through the opening and Chinese lanterns waving amorously in the wind). So you see, it was a total acoustic nightmare. A voice would carry and bounce off the walls in a thousand different ways, but DJ Cris braved on with optimism and assurance that this would be a total snap and would be great - and told me that he saw it as a personal challenge. I felt guilty but very confident.
The whole process of picking the music and letting him know "our style" was great - Cris is an awesome communicator and extremely professional. I felt like he really made me his priority and was constantly "poking" me for information. If he ever changes his profession into "Cris the wedding planner" I will be the first to recommend him.
Here is the surprising thing - I not only danced my first dance at my wedding (my plan, again, was to do that and then chat with guests in a dignified manner) but I actually DANCED THE NIGHT AWAY. And so did everyone else. I didn't know where the reception time went, we were all having so much fun! Not only did he feel the mood at all times and made it impossible to get off the floor (my friend was pole dancing with a heat lamp by the end of the night) but this incredible man took pictures of the event set up, something that even the photographer didn't do, and included it with the soundtrack CD he gave us after the wedding. He made the whole thing more fun than me, the wallflower bride, could have ever imagined.
