DJ Chris Wallace

Chris Wallace has been fine-tuning his music performance passion for many years as both a musician and a DJ. He brings that passion to every wedding and event he does. Almost every moment in his life that required music gave him the opportunity to create a mix tape or playlist to set the right mood and make the moment even more special. Chris’ experience as a musician, including playing drums in a wedding band, has given him a wealth of knowledge in all genres of music. He always knows just the right song to get your guests on the dance floor.

With Chris as your DJ, you can expect to hear the perfect song for each moment and have an MC that is entertaining and informative but not too obtrusive. He knows that he is working with people during one of the most important days of their lives and he will work tirelessly during the entire event to make sure your special day is perfect.

Chris has trained as an assistant with Cleveland Music Group’s own Scott E. Jones. While working with Scott for over a year, Chris has learned about what it takes to make every event run smoothly and how to make the clients and their family as comfortable as possible. Chris will work with you from the beginning to get every detail about your event and will be in constant contact to answer questions you have leading up to your wedding day. He will talk with you to figure out your personality and musical taste, two things that Chris uses to compile a perfect plan for your event. So if you are looking for an organized and professional DJ, look no further. Chris looks forward to helping you achieve the perfect wedding!

  • Incredible

    DJ Chris Wallace was a great master of ceremonies. He kept things on schedule and we didn’t have to worry about a thing! He was organized and prepared and played a great mix of everything we asked for!

    Our guests were wowed by the guitarist Ty’s talent. He played a perfect set list with just a short conversation with us. He learned our wedding song- it was such a beautiful moment! Ty was amazing and highly recommend!!!

    Chris Wallace is the best DJ ever!!!

    My husband and I hired DJ Chris Wallace after he DJed a friend’s wedding a couple of years ago. At her wedding, the dance floor was hyped the entire night. So naturally, it was a no-brainer to consider him for our own wedding. He is very professional without being very “in your face” like some DJs. He played everything we wanted to hear, read our tastes and played even more of what we liked, and appeased the masses. The dance floor was PACKED for 3 hours straight and it’s all I could have asked for. Definitely consider him if you have a crowd that loves to dance!!

    Cleveland music group was great

    I was very pleased with Cleveland Music Group for my wedding. DJ Chris Wallace was very down to earth, friendly and professional. His choice of music was spot on, and the reception flowed well.

    Sonata Strings was so professional and easy with identifying songs.

    All around, a great group to work with!

    Highly Recommend DJ Chris Wallace

    DJ Chris Wallace did a great job throughout our entire wedding day. He kept us organized and kept all the events of the day flowing nicely. Our dance floor was filled from the moment music played and continued until the very end of the night. All of my family and friends kept commenting on how they loved his music selection. It was such a fun day for everyone thanks to him!

    Amazing experience

    We absolutely loved our experience with Cleveland Music Group. The Sonata Strings Duo were easy to coordinate with and provided beautiful music for our ceremony exactly how we imagined it. DJ Chris Wallace was easy to work with and kept the party going throughout the entire night! The value of the services provided by Cleveland Music Group was appropriate, and we would highly recommend their services to others planning their wedding day.

    Couldn’t Be Happier! Merry & Married!

    DJ Chris Wallace was an absolute delight to work with. From the planning process to the day of the wedding, Chris was organized, communicative, flexible, and relaxed. Chris did a fantastic job selecting music for our reception that was both festive for the Christmas holiday and upbeat to keep guest dancing. Our dance floor was packed the entire evening! Our guests raved about how fun and festive the evening was. Thank you Chris for being an integral part of our reception! We couldn’t be happier!

    DJ Chris Wallace was incredible from start to finish! He took the time early on to set up personal phone calls and answer every question that I had. He met at a local restaurant with both of us to go over the logistics of the wedding and our Dos and Don’ts as far as music went. He acted in a very professional manner throughout the entire event. He made sure to go over the pronunciations of names again before the grand entrance and the correct order for introduction. He followed the schedule well for the evening but also allowed spontaneous fun moments to continue without pushing the schedule. Most importantly, he truly did keep a full dance floor with his choice of music and was able to incorporate our wish list of music as well. THANK YOU Cleveland Music Group for the wonderful service and for pairing us with the best DJ we could have hoped for.

    The Perfect Party

    Chris Wallace was the DJ at my brother’s wedding in the summer of 2017. He did such a great job that we asked him to come back for our wedding this summer. Chris communicated in a highly effective manner, paying close attention to details, and ensuring that everything went smoothly. He did a great job monitoring sound for the wedding ceremony, and was also a fantastic emcee and DJ during the wedding reception. It was easy to work with Chris during the planning stages, and he made the entire event a success. Everyone had a wonderful time!

    Chris Wallace did an incredible job DJing at our wedding. We had a few last minute changes and he coordinated everything seamlessly. He also got everyone out on the dance floor the whole night. All of our guests could not stop raving about how much fun they had dancing.

    Kept the dance floor packed all night!

    We had Chris Wallace DJ at our wedding last weekend. He was awesome to work with, able to make quick changes to our schedule per our request, and kept the dance floor moving the entire night. Everyone had a blast, both the younger crowd and our parents and parents’ friends. Would absolutely recommend!

    Amazing night

    We received more amazing reviews for Josh (guitar) than ever, even from other vendors. DJ Chris Wallace kept everyone out on the dance floor all night long and was very flexible with our timeline. We were very happy with all services!

    The Party Never Stopped!

    Thank you Chris and the entire CMG Team for such an amazing time at our wedding! From working with Tony in the beginning to having DJ Chris Wallace at our wedding, we enjoyed every minute and the process was so easy. Chris kept our guests on the floor and dancing the entire time! We literally had about 4 hours of open music and the dance floor was never empty. Thank you CLE Music Group for helping make our wedding a killer event!!

    DJ chris rocked the house

    Our expectations were exceeded with DJ Chris. We experienced everything we asked for thanks to his pre-wedding call and survey. We appreciate his respect for not playing songs that we identified to not play, and he was very accommodating for our processional music and our dinner music themes.

    Perfect addition to our wedding

    We had two acts for the night. We started with the Sonata Strings who played for our ceremony and cocktail hour. It was very easy to work with them on song choices and the timing was perfect throughout. DJ Chris was super easy to work with and had no problem following our requests for songs. He did a great job announcing the important events throughout the night without being overpowering on the mic. His music selection was so good that he kept the dance floor packed all night. We could not have asked for better music for the whole day. I would highly recommend these two acts to anyone in the future. As far as CLE Music Group in general, Erin Rossi helped us with updating contracts and any requests. She always got back to me very quickly and gave great advice when needed!

    Chris was the perfect DJ for us! He nailed the music for the evening and went with the flow of everything even though I had the order wrong. (Sorry!!) I felt so bad. But he made me feel like it was okay! Everyone has been telling me how much they enjoyed the music and were extremely happy about the mix of old and new! I am feeling so lucky that Chris was our DJ! He was perfect!

    We hired DJ Chris only 2 weeks before our wedding. He had very little time to prepare, yet did an amazing job and listened and fulfilled all our requests no matter how outlandish and international. We had a crowd of mid-30 y/o and mid-50 y/o guests, some Israeli, some Russian, and some American. He managed to keep all of us dancing the entire time with a great selection of music. He also communicated with our Rabbi as requested to coordinate the ceremony. Chris was great about answering texts and emails and was so pleasant to work with! CMG was so helpful in finding a last minute DJ with suggestions of who might work out best and a very smooth, professional experience.

    Great DJ!

    Chris was a great DJ at our May wedding. He did the music for our ceremony perfectly and easily adapted to the two changes in our reception timeline. Guests were constantly dancing! I would highly recommend!

    Very professional, personal and fun!

    We had a great time planning and organizing our wedding with DJ Chris. He was personal from the get-go and we also were very thankful for how professional he was with detailed outlines of our reception layout. We thoroughly enjoyed having Chris as our DJ!

    We had such an amazing experience with CLE Music Group. Right off the bat Scott Jones was genuinely interested in helping us find exactly what we were looking for!! He helped us choose the perfect DJ, Chris Wallace. Chris was down to earth, fun and very patient with us!! From the meetings we had all the way through to our wedding day I had so much confidence and trust in Chris that he had our night under control. He ensured our grand entrance songs were exactly as requested and that my surprise father daughter dance went off without a hitch! We will definitely recommend CLE Music Group to anyone looking for a wedding DJ!

    Absolutely fantastic service

    Our DJ (DJ Bill Bowen) did a phenomenal job with the music for our wedding! People would not stop dancing and I got a ton of compliments on how fun the music selection was! DJ Bill was on time, responsive and clear- everything ran so smoothly. He even confirmed if we wanted to do a dollar dance and on the spot we changed our mind, and it was no problem the evening still flowed perfectly! One of our guests suggested a polka and once he saw how many people got up to dance to that (guests I NEVER thought would get on the dance floor), he ended up playing another one later. What a huge hit! I could not recommend CLE Music Group enough. Our entire experience with them was professional and perfect. We could not have had a better night!

    Awesome job!

    Mike and I used DJ Chris Wallace. Chris was on time and on point the entire ceremony, even with last minute changes our wedding day never skipped a beat. Chris listened to our music taste and everyone had a great time.

    Great Job!

    Everyone thought DJ Chris Wallace was great. There were a couple hiccups at the reception and Chris managed our time and announcements very well and no one even noticed anything had changed. The Photo Booth was a great success. All the guests loved it! People were in it all night long!

    Strings & DJ

    We used Sonata Strings for our ceremony and cocktail hour. The string trio was perfect. They were professional, sounded great and were even able to put together a special request song for me (the bride) to walk down the aisle to. It was a great way to add an elegant touch to the start of our wedding day and the guests were impressed! DJ Chris Wallace came in after cocktail hour and was another hit. He again accommodated our requests for a certain genre of music during dinner and moved smoothly through the unique, traditional Polish touches we had requested during the reception. He kept the party going right up until the end while playing a great blend of genres. Using Cleveland Music Group was a great decision and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking!
