DJ/MC & Co-founder of Elegant Event Entertainment, Inc.
Chris Mortillaro loves to DJ more than just about anything else. He began his career in 1988 and now with more than 2000 events behind him, Chris is among the most accomplished and experienced DJs in the southern California region. His love and passion for music have always driven his motivation to constantly improve his abilities as a DJ in order to provide clients with an unforgettable entertaining experience. Chris started “Elegant Event Entertainment” with Jason Jones in 2006, bringing together two of the most talented DJ/Emcee’s in the country to form one of the fastest growing DJ companies in Los Angeles.
As a DJ, Chris brings an amazingly vast knowledge of music to your event, and can read any crowd, assuring a packed dance floor and a lot of tired legs. Chris maintains a youthful image and approach, while interlacing style, professionalism and veteran experience at your event. His ability to work well with your other vendors is priceless, and you can feel at ease that your event will be treated as the most important day of the year. Chris’s experience and vast knowledge of hundreds of the venues in southern California help him as a coordinator of events and Emcee. Because he knows the rules and logistics of each location, Chris can help his clients make important decisions about timelines, itineraries, music choices, and logistics that other, less experienced DJs simply wouldn’t know. Like his business partner Jason, Chris is one of the most referred DJs in southern California particularly in the wedding industry.
Chris is also a senior production manager in the television industry, and has been working in entertainment for 20 years.
When Chris isn’t busy with work, he enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and 4 kids, and in his spare time he finds great joy in mixing and restoring old vinyl recordings in his home studio or watching the Steelers.
