The Music

bride groom Rutter“I received so many compliments from the guests about the music mix and transitions. My husband is a musician and is very particular; but he was completely amazed at what you did with our playlist. Your timing and mixes were impeccable as witnessed from the overflowing dancefloor. OMG – you really were worth every penny we spent!!” Madeline and Richard

It takes more than an iTunes mix and some fancy speakers to become a top wedding DJ in Washington, DC.

At Chris Laich Music Services, our skilled disc jockeys are constantly reading the energy in the room, so they can play the perfect song at the perfect time. That means your guests are always enjoying the moment, and the results are nothing short of magic.

A typical Chris Laich event begins with a cocktail hour and dinner, accompanied by a variety of timeless standards. Whether you prefer classics by Ella and Etta or more recent offerings by Eva Cassidy and Jack Johnson, our tasteful selection of wedding music always starts the evening in style.

When it’s time to dance, the DJ will seamlessly transition to an upbeat mix that’s guaranteed to appeal to every guest in the crowd. Think Motown classics, ‘70s dance, ‘80s rock, ‘90s pop, and all your personal favorites.

Take a look at our music lists below for inspiration or, better yet, call and let us know exactly what music you envision for your wedding day.
