Our Story

Dedicated to Bringing Out the Best in People Through Great Music.

I believe music is powerful and lyrics matter. I believe all people want to feel respected, welcomed, and included at every event. My business, Kris Koch Music, can bring out the very best in people by providing DJ entertainment that features songs without profanity and without destructive messages still found in ‘clean’ song edits.

I am proud that people in Northeast Ohio can trust me as a source of respectful DJ music services. I have entertained thousands of people of all ages by playing mixes of fun, popular and trendy songs including new releases and older classics from all around the globe.

My strong belief in the power of music inspired me to write and publish a book called Powerful Playlists: 1,000 Energizing Songs to Entertain, Teach and Heal. With my book and speaking engagements, I help people make informed music choices. I love to help people discover songs that they never realized they would like, and to cultivate a lifelong appreciation for a wide variety of music. I like to play lesser-known songs too.
