MEET THE DJ
DJ Valence is Chris Grant, a party rock DJ from Springfield, MO. Grant has been a professional DJ for over 10 years now, and has built quite an impressive resume during that time.
In 2005, he was an intern under Lou Whitney at “The Studio” in Springfield. During this time, he learned the fundamentals of both studio, and live sound. He also ran sound for many different local acts including Sweetwater Abeline and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.
In 2006, Grant was approached by someone who worked for an entertainment company in Springfield, and was offered their Music Director position. While he held the position, Grant planned, hosted, and was the DJ for several types of events, including a major fundraiser for Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels and his foundation. He also managed, mentored, and booked a team of other DJs for the company.
In 2008, his job with the entertainment company led him to an offer from the St. Louis Cardinals AA affiliate Springfield Cardinals, as their DJ for the 2008 and 2009 seasons. During this time, Grant was the DJ for over 140 games, including the very first All-Star game held at Hammon's Field. During this time, he was also mentored by the Busch Stadium DJ, and other St. Louis DJ's.
In 2010, Grant took his knowledge and experience, and started his own company called Platinum Plus Productions. Since then Platinum Plus has provided DJs for all types of events, and employed several DJs. Platinum Plus is still going strong, and planning for a huge 2018!
In 2016, Grant reached another milestone and landed his own mix show, on Saturday nights, from 10pm to 12am, on 92.9 The Beat in Springfield, MO. You can listen to him spin on the radio, or stream it from their website every Saturday night!
In his spare time, Grant enjoys spending time with friends, family, and most of all, his daughter Natalie. For booking, please visit the contact page, and send an e-mail.
