BKR productions is wonderful. Cris was the DJ at my wedding recently and he and his staff did a fabulous job. They didn't just spin discs, they kept the flow of the event going, entertained the guests, and truly were an integral part of my wedding being a fantastic event. There was a delay with the food (roasted pig took a little longer than expected) and Cris seamlessly distracted/entertained the guests so no one was the wiser to the delay. He was easy to schedule time with before the event to choose music, worked ongoing with me to via email to refine the songs, edited my dance music perfectly etc etc etc. I would without a doubt hire Cris again for an event, and highly recommend him to you.
I have never been to a trivia night regularly until we got invited by chance to play at the Villa Roma with Cris as the DJ (TJ for trivia DJ?). I seriously go every week now.
While the Villa Roma was scary and dark (it's an older local bar) Chris was funny, had great trivia questions, engaged the whole bar and was all around rockin' creating a really fun environment for a range of people.
We had ages from 21 to over 60 having a great time, there was lots of banter and some serious trivia.
5 stars because Chris is really great with people and finds a way to make things fun for everyone. 🙂
I had BKR Productions as the DJ for my 50th Birthday party. They were fantastic! DJ Lili was so great, and very professional. She met with me beforehand to go over some songs and see my likes and dislikes. The day of the party she was at the venue early, and was set up and playing by the time I got there. The music was excellent and we danced all night!! I would definitely hire BKR Productions again!!
Thanks so much DJ Lili!
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.
Cris (DJ BKR) DJ'd our wedding and we could not have been happier. From the first contact through the event he was courteous, responsive, flexible, positive, organized and professional. He also has a great sense of humor, superb taste in music and a seemingly infinite selection of tunes in his library. On our wedding day there were several adjustments that needed to be made for the sound during our outdoor ceremony, due to rain, and Cris handled them deftly. During our ceremony he was perfect - attuned, unobtrusive and a lot of fun. We'd hire him again in a heartbeat for any event.
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!!!!
what can I say, I'm a big fan! Cris is very personable not like most dj's that have an attitude just because they're a dj. Cris connects very well with the crowd and has a good amount of following in his events. He's easy to talk to and will make accomodations to play your request. I agree with the reviews, he's a great dj!
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.
