My wife and I have known Dj BKR for a long time now from frequenting his trivia nights at The Lariat. We always have a blast and everyone we bring with us always wants to come back for more. Our team usually places in the bottom percentile (due to our own lack of knowledge) but we love the thinkin' and drinkin' BKR hosts anyways.
When it came time for my fiance/now wife and I to get married and pick the music for our wedding we did nlt hesitate to choose Dj BKR as our DJ. Cris was very proffesional and let us know well in advance what to expect, how he usually runs things, what we can do to make the dance floor full, and basically everything we had no idea went into making a wedding amazing. Cris was very prompt and proffesional throughout the process.
When the big day came Dj BKR absolutly rocked the house. The dance floor was never empty and I even saw some great aunts getting down on the dance floor. Cris mixed our ecleptic choices in music very well and played each genre at the perfect moment (we had everything from Beach Boys, to Country, to Jazz and he rocked them amazingly). Cris is a very enthusiastic character and his personality definitly came out in his DJing which is exactly what we wanted. The night was killer and my wife and I enjoyed every minute of it.
I would highly recommend Dj BKR for his wedding skills as well as his always fun Trivia Nights!
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!
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 (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.
Cris was an incredible DJ for our wedding at the Four Seasons! My favorite thing about him was that he took the time to sit down and meet with us to go over all of the music details. Literally every little thing you might not think of, he was on top of. We never once worried about the flow of the evening, and had a fantastic reception. I would absolutely recommend him for any event but especially for a wedding.
Cris was a great wedding DJ at our ceremony in September. He worked with all of our requests, was totally personable, and was a total joy to work with. (Not to mention reasonably priced and well prepared!) If we ever need a DJ again, I am definitely going to use him and will totally recommend him to anybody who needs a DJ in the future.
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. 🙂
