Classically Trained


Chris’ Bio

Chris’ love of music began when he was a boy being inspired from both of his grandfathers, who were accomplished musicians in their native Costa Rica. They both gave him the ambition to learn how to play an instrument at the age of 9; to which he began playing the alto saxophone.

Classically trained, Chris has played in concert, jazz, and marching bands in high school and at West Virginia University. He earned many accolades as a solo musician and collectively with his fellow peers. He majored in civil engineering at WVU and still chose to play in “The Pride of West Virginia”, The Mountaineer Marching Band.

After graduating from WVU, Chris put down his saxophone and entered the real world as an engineer working for a private firm. Although he found his career very rewarding, music kept calling back to him. He knew that soon enough the urge to return to music would be too great to ignore.

When Chris was presented with the opportunity to learn to become a DJ, he jumped at the chance without hesitation. Although he had never operated DJ equipment, he was eager to master it much like learning a new instrument. With his classical music training and overall knowledge of musical genres, the transition to becoming a DJ came naturally.

From private events to having a few nightlife residencies at venues like Porta Asbury Park, Asbury Ale House, Boathouse, Donovan’s Reef, Cuzin’s, Metro Cafe, The Shore House, and many more – Chris continues to take his craft to new levels while offering SCE couples, companies and clients an amazing service loaded with value and fun.

What They’re
Saying About Chris

If you don’t believe us when we say we’re the best DJs on Earth, see what some of our couples and clients have to say.

Want your guests to be on the dance floor all night long? Chris Obando is your guy! Our guests can’t stop talking about our outstanding DJ and neither can we. He made our night incredibly fun and truly unforgettable. Not only did he make our day special, but he assisted us every step of the way and made sure every detail was worked out to perfection! SCE and Chris, thank you so much for making all our dreams come true!!

WOW!!! We cannot say enough good things about DJ Chris Obando and SCE Group. Our wedding was flawless!!! We had guests coming over to us constantly through out our night to tell us that our wedding was the most fun wedding they have ever been to. People were raving about Chris, rightfully so, as he is a true talent. Assisted by Christian (also INCREDIBLE), DJ O killed it. Not one guest sat all night. He was able to feel and adapt to the crowd, consistently checked in with us to make sure we were happy, and gave us the most fun night of our lives. Thank you SO much. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company if you want a fun wedding that guests will remember.

Chris Obando (“Chris”) and the rest of the staff at SCE did such a fantastic job for my wife and I at our wedding. From the very beginning of the experience, Chris met with us frequently to develop a rapport and familiarize himself not just with our personal styles, but also with the overall demographic of our guests and the “vibe” we were going for. When we were forced to drastically alter the size and style of our event, Chris kicked it into high gear and made sure the cocktail hour and reception music choices best suited the newly-styled wedding with ease. Chris displayed the utmost professionalism and dedication to making our wedding as special and memorable as possible, and we would highly recommend him and SCE to anyone in the future!

I do not have enough incredible things to say about SCE Event Group. Chris Obando was the DJ/event host for our wedding. I have to admit, doing this during a pandemic wasn’t exactly easy, but Chris went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make this day everything my husband and I have dreamed of, and more! Chris hit every request on our must play list, insured the timing of entrances was exactly how we envisioned they’d be, and kept the crowd going all night long! I 10000% recommend using SCE for any of your events, especially Chris! 🙂

SCE and DJ Chris O was amazing to work with. From day one everything was laid out for us and every person we talked to was responsive and professional. Chris was not only amazing during the planning process but even dealt with us when we changed some stuff on his last minute… thank you thank you!!

Melissa C.

We had our wedding in Princeton, NJ in July and Chris was the DJ. He was amazing before, during and after our wedding. Before the wedding, we had multiple face time calls and two in-person appointments to go over every single detail for our wedding. Chris is bilingual, which was necessary for our wedding as one side of our family is Dominican. It was important for us that he was able to converse with everyone in both Spanish and English. He was also our unofficial MC, so he was able to announce the speeches and introduce everyone in both English and SPanish. He was a dream to work with and we would recommend him and SCE to anyone who is looking for a DJ/entertainment group for their wedding!
