In Washington, DC Wedding Venues Part I, we shared several of the area’s best wedding and event sites. It turned out that, as special and corporate event deejays, we get around! We couldn’t pack in all of the DC’s great venues, so we’re back with Washington, DC Wedding Venues Part II.

Washingtonian Best Of Happy Hour 2011!

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

It’s that time of year again…for the Washingtonian Best Of Happy Hour in Bethesda, Wednesday, June 29, 6-8:30pm!

This cocktail party is unlike any other. Not only is the entirety of Bethesda Row blocked off, with free food and drinks, but you’ll also be able to buy discounted tickets to arguably the biggest Washingtonian event of the year – their Best Of Party at the National Building Museum on July 13.

Did we mention that the Washingtonian has awarded us with the distinction of providing the music for the whole party?

RSVP at the Washingtonian Best Of Happy Hour Event Facebook page, and be sure to stop by and see us!

Bolger Center Wedding – DJ Set Up

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Nestled in Potomac, Maryland, the Bolger Center is an event venue and wedding weekend retreat all rolled into one.

With handsome grounds, an on-site hotel and a choice of two spacious, modern ballrooms, one of which has a spectacular stained glass wall, the Bolger Center offers a lot to couples looking for a unique place to celebrate.

Between the high ceilings and square footage, calibration is key. Spacing equipment too far apart or too close together can spell disaster from both aesthetic and sound points of view. By placing our Bose wireless speakers at just the right intervals, we’re able to meet our standard of professional and customer experience excellence.

To see what we mean, have a look at the images below of the Chris Laich Music Services DJ set-up from our last visit to the Bolger Center.

Boasting Härth, a new seasonally grown, locally sourced restaurant, and a recently renovated lobby, the McLean Hilton in Tysons Corner is a sophisticated event venue.

Stylish, versatile and convenient, this hotel is also a great place for a wedding!

Recently, Chris Laich Music Services was at the McLean Hilton to help a couple celebrate their marriage. Using our wireless Bose speakers, we made sure every speech was heard and the dance floor kept moving…while remaining as invisible as possible.

Below are a few shots of our speaker and equipment set up during cocktails and the reception. If you’d like to see more set-ups in DC-area wedding sites, visit our Washington, DC Event Venues section.

Newseum – Wedding DJ Set Up

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Sleek, modern, and very cool, the Newseum is a unique wedding venue sure to keep guests talking long after the celebration!

Sitting at Pennsylvania Avenue and Sixth Street, the Newseum is in the heart of the city, offers incredible views of DC landmarks like the Capitol, and boasts Wolfgang Puck as its in-house caterer. At the Newseum, there’s no shortage of options. From fantastic outdoor terraces perfect for a top of the city ceremony to a variety of indoor spaces, this venue has it all. One of our favorite aspects is the incredible events staff who always make being a part of a wedding team at the Newseum a pleasure.


With its high ceilings and glass, the Newseum presents a few sound challenges, but those are easily overcome using our Bose wireless speakers and years of expertise. Check out below a recent wedding Chris Laich Music Services was a part of to see how we work on site, or learn more in our Event Venues section.
