“I just wanted you to know that Chris was amazing. I heard over and over, "This was the best reception I've been to" and "This was perfect." The dance floor was hopping, and we will be telling many people how good Chris is!”
—Nancy, mother of the bride
DJ Chris Rayford
Chris Rayford is the young-and-hip guy in the Backthird DJ stable. He trained for two years with owner Benjie Hughes and the BPM dance band before beginning to DJ solo in 2009. Like every great DJ, Chris is able to move comfortably from one genre to another - cut him, though, and he bleeds Motown.Chris is also a dancer - he taught hip-hop for several years at Shiloh Studio in Aurora before joining the Backthird team. He loves teaching dances to guests when appropriate, and he has a tendency to wind up on the dance floor alongside your friends by the end of an evening. His energy is absolutely contagious.
