I am pleased to nominate DJ Chrismo for consideration as the Nightclub & Bar Awards Resident DJ of the Year. An essential part of Club Allure’s team, Chrismo’s valuable contributions shine through for this venue year after year. From his mastery of the Pioneer DVJ turntables, and his natural ability to read an audience, to his experience dealing with advertising, promotions and management, Chrismo is undoubtedly Club Allure’s “MVP.”
We could spend a lot of time talking about how many hours he puts into music research, video editing and working with the club’s promotions team
to ensure that every Friday and Saturday night are a special event at Club Allure. But that’s something that should be a given for any DJ nominated for this award. We’d like to focus on how Chrismo redefines the word “Resident.”
Chrismo has been involved in the Nightclub & Bar industry for over 20 years, and has worked in a variety of music genres, venues and markets. As his personal experience base grew, his value increased at each place he landed. Now Club Allure relies on him to be not only a Resident DJ who can rock a dancefloor, but who can also maintain PA and A/V systems, DMX lighting, CCTV surveillance, POS and credit card systems, and to provide valuable insight to both management and ownership that only a veteran with a body of work of his caliber can.
Club Allure is located in Sandy, Utah (Salt Lake City market) and is the state’s largest single-floor club. The club is home to the largest Lightspace
LED Interactive Dancefloor in the United States. The club hosts first-class events on a regular basis, with appearances from celebrities such as Kanye West, Rihanna and "The Girl's Next Door's" Bridgette Marquardt, to such well-known promoters as Girls Gone Wild. The club also is host to some of the largest party nights in Salt Lake, with New Year’s, St. Pat’s and Halloween events that make other clubs jealous. Yes, Club Allure is all of these things. It is also home to the next Resident DJ of the Year.
