Jack Anderson

DJ / Host: Jack Anderson

DJ Jack (aka Striking Viking) is an unapologetic music nerd and our resident expert in all things geeky! Jack has always been involved in music since a young age, learning piano and drums early on, there was never a time he was not working on some sort of project. From mixing and rock bands, to A Cappella choirs and college radio, there was always a tune in his head that needed to be shared. As his beard grew, so too did his eclectic taste in music, from Pop to Punk, Hip hop to EDM, Jack spins it all, he is even known to throw in some freestyle for those lucky aficionados.

Jack’s attention to detail and scientific approach to music is a product of his background in the research field. “Being a DJ and MC is such a great counterpart to my other work! I absolutely love helping people let loose and just enjoy the moment. Whether it’s a wedding or corporate event, music is that great unifier that lets people forget their everyday stresses and get joyfully lost dancing to songs with their friends and families, the open bar also tends to help with that!”

Jack works hard to ensure that your event is as custom tailored to fit as that wedding dress or tuxedo. Jack is passionate about making sure you have a fantastic time and leave with a smile on your face. If you are looking for a professional whose calm demeanor will keep you at ease from beginning to end, look no further!

We couldn't have been happier with CNT Entertainment for our outdoor wedding reception. Our MC and DJs Jack and Dom had everyone on the dance floor all evening long! Everything flowed smoothly, from the first planning meeting through to the last dance. Jack came to our home to discuss details and music choices, and really understood the "vibe" we wanted to achieve. CNT helped us create an amazing, fun and most memorable evening . Many guests commented on how great our DJ was.

Talk about a perfectly professional DJ company! We hired Carlos for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Carlos was our DJ throughout the entire planning process. We had no idea what we wanted for music, but knew we wanted our guests up dancing all night long. He had great suggestions and totally put our minds at ease. We knew we were not going to get a set playlist, but customized song sets that reflected our guests. Unfortunately, two days before our wedding Carlos was ill and would not be able to attend our wedding. Now normally bride panic would have set in, however Carlos already had a plan in place. He had two of his other DJs, Dom and Jack come to his hospital room to go over all the information for our wedding. Here he was with much bigger things to worry about than our wedding, but still making sure our day would be perfect. He was in constant communication with us, making sure we were comfortable with the switch. (He even had his wife text us at one point). That is professional dedication. Dom and Jack quickly took over and arranged a phone call to iron out any last minute questions. The day of our wedding Dom and Jack were flawless! The ceremony music was exactly what we wanted and everything was timed perfectly. They then made a seamless switch into DJing cocktail hour and right into the reception. Our guest were dancing the entire time, which is exactly what we wanted. Dom and Jack had a great read on the crowd and hadeveryone off their seats! They even did a quick center piece giveaway game to get everyone up and on the dance floor right after dinner. (Ask about it, you won’t be disappointed)! As we thanked Dom and Jack at the end of the night, they showed us a video of Carlos from the hospital wishing us a great wedding and apologizing for not being able to make it. I don’t know how you could ever find a more dedicated and professional DJ. They all love what they do and want to make their clients big days to be perfect, which is clearly evident from the attention to detail and communication. If you want a DJ to wow your guests and keep the party going all night, then look for further than Carlos and his team! We cannot thank you enough!
