Atlanta Wedding + Corporate DJ Chris Watson
DJ Chris Watson
Professional Mix DJ + MC
Chris was a musician for years in the Atlanta area. Several years back he was playing a lot of acoustic shows with a friend of his who happened to be a DJ. He thought that with his musical knowledge and comfort level performing in front of a crowd that he would be perfect as a DJ. After his friend brought it up to him a few times, Chris decided to give it a try. He was hooked from the beginning! Of course he loves playing great music and keeping the dance floor packed but what he really enjoyed is building a relationship with the bride and groom. Discussing the music and formalities and designing the entire evening to make sure it is perfect for the client and their guests. He performs 30+ wedding receptions each year and is always looking forward to the next one and playing an important role in one of the biggest days of his client’s lives.
Get To Know DJ Chris
What made you get into the music industry?
I started playing drums at 5 and have played live music all of my life singing, playing drums, bass, & guitar in various bands. Several years ago I was playing in an acoustic duo with someone that owned a DJ company and they thought I would be a natural given my extensive musical knowledge of various genres, live performance experience, and MC skills.
How long have you been working with Lethal Rhythms?
I have been with Lethal Rhythms for 7+ years.
Describe your musical style.
I feel my strongest areas would be anything rock (or pop for that matter) from the 70’s to current, 80’s & 90’s hip hop & rap, and current top 40.
What is your favorite event you have ever spun for?
I believe my two most favorite events were a charity event at Verizon amphitheater and a large wedding at Fernbank Museum. The more of a party crowd the better.
What advice do you have for potential new clients?
My advice for potential clients would be to do their due diligence before booking any vendor. For a DJ they need to feel like the personality and the DJ expertise is in line with what they are looking for. The biggest thing that I think often gets overlooked is they need to make sure that the DJ can run a timeline in an appropriate manner (never rushed but definitely not letting things drag) & has good microphone skills and can “manage” a crowd.
Praises for DJ Chris!
“Chris was just fantastic. I knew from the first conversation that his knowledge of music would be a huge asset, and he was easily able to find the perfect balance between our eclectic tastes and music that would make our guests happy. I’ve been to dozens of events with movie/event DJs, and Chris was heads and shoulders above the rest. You pay for the professionalism and care, but it’s absolutely worth it. I would not hesitate to hire him again.”
