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.
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. 🙂
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!
I hired DJ Lili for a friend's birthday party. Not only was she totally professional, she made the party! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ for the night, everyone had a blast! She showed up early and was all setup and ready to go before I arrived. Lili was referred by a friend and Chris at BKR (owner and DJ) was a pleasure to work with regarding the business end of things.
I would highly recommend Lili and BKR for any party, wedding or event where you need top notch entertainment.
Cris was absolutely the perfect DJ for our wedding. We met him at a local trivia and after getting to know him decided he'd be a fun fit for providing us all the fun tunes to the wedding! He did not disappoint. He's been in the industry for an awesome amount of time which gives him a ton of experience and familiarity with helping support the wedding.
He's extremely prepared and communicable, sending us song templates to get us started in building out the music for the entire night. He also helped guide us when we were stuck on decisions and shared song lists to keep us on track.
He's timely in both any pre-wedding meetings and to the actual ceremony to make sure he's able to set up and sound check his equipment. He's a really fun DJ - totally organized and very comfortable doing intros & any other funny commentary throughout the night. Highly recommended!!
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!!!!
