Like his favorite NBA player Jason Kidd (no relation), DJ Chris Kidd is shifty with the rock and one hell of a facilitator.
Known to weekend revelers as Kidd the DJ at venues like Old Town Pour House, Derby, Fatpour, and Hopsmith, Chris showcases a nonstop mix skill that often incorporates mashups, blends and acapellas.
Chris honed his craft in the wild clubs and parties of Bourbon Street during his former life as a laid-back Southerner. Since relocating to Chicago, Chris has stepped up his hustle to become one of the city’s fastest-rising DJs.
“I recommended Chris for my best friend's wedding knowing that most of the people going would be sticks in the mud,” says former client Jared J. “His mix for the night ignited a fire under everyone and we danced until the venue closed. Outside of mixing he's a really cool guy and super professional as well.”
Chris also offers video DJ options to mix in some awesome visuals - imagine watching a young Michael Jackson busting moves while getting down to “I Want You Back”.
“In my opinion, Chris is one of the BEST, most professional DJs around. He has wide and eclectic music interests, making him a perfect DJ for any party/taste. I love the way he blends and mixes songs, and knows how to get the party started… and more importantly, keep it going.” (Alan J.)
“I've hired Kidd the DJ for the past four years to work an outdoor party during Mardi Gras for all-day events. He plays a great mix of songs and keeps the 150+ partygoers engaged throughout the whole night. You're guaranteed to have a great night when he's spinning.” (Lauren G.)
