Doesn’t every couple want their wedding to be one big party? You want your guests to have fun. One sure-fire clue that they’re having a blast is when they’re on the dance floor all night. Top-rated DJ Chris Laich knows how to get your guests up on their feet and keep them there. Chris is coming to The Washingtonian for a live chat on Thursday at 11—but you can start submitting your music questions now.
For 18 years, Chris has been specializing in elegant, romantic, fun—but never cheesy—weddings. You won’t hear “YMCA,” “the Chicken Dance,” or “The Electric Slide.” That is, of course, unless you want to. Being a DJ at a wedding, Chris says, doesn’t mean canned drum rolls before the cake cutting or football-stadium introductions to get your crowd hyped. Chris has been named one of the best DJs in the country by Modern Bride magazine for the past two years. He and his company have played venues including the Fairmont, the Willard InterContinental, the Hay-Adams, Decatur House, Evermay, the National Museum for Women in the Arts, Meridian House, and the Mandarian Oriental.
