Don’t limit yourself to an average DJ who's goal is to up-sell you lighting packages! I am a seasoned, educated ARTIST/PERFORMER & EXPERT PLANNER (early planning stages are critical!). From your live ceremony & cocktail hour Musician, to reception DJ & Emcee, you are covered. A memorable and classy touch your guests will not forget!

www.petegoslow.com

If you don’t have a wedding coordinator - you will love working with me as I will help you create the perfect custom timeline and program you envision. You will notice in my client reviews couples are astounded with their experience at how good I am during planning stages and timeline creation!!!

LESS IS BETTER!!! I bring the energy when it’s appropriate, then let the music do the rest. I leave the inarticulate, ridiculous, obnoxious, comedic, unprepared and inappropriate emcee styling’s to the typical wedding DJ’s out there - watch out because there are more than you think! Anyone can take out an ad, and anyone can weekend DJ on their laptop.

No Cheese!!!! I have been performing and running weddings successfully for over 20 years and cannot tell you how many times I have heard DJ’s plug themselves live before grand entrance (every big DJ company makes their employee DJ’s plug their company before Grand Entrance - no matter what they may tell you).

Pete is fantastic - he added some class to our cocktail hour and ceremony with his own acoustic guitar music and kept the party rockin' until the end of the reception. He was super easy to work with, organised, knows his stuff and there was no cheesy/over the top performances, just really good music and fun times. I would highly recommend hiring Pete for your wedding DJ, it will be the best decision you make all wedding!

I was so happy the first time I talked to Pete over the phone before hiring him because he was one of the nicest people! He is genuinely such a kind man - I was so fortunate to find such fantastic and sweet vendors on wedding wire. Since my wedding was destination, I didn't get to meet Pete until the day of my wedding, and he could not have been more fantastic. He played his guitar and sand during the processionals at our ceremony and during cocktail hour and dinner at our reception. His music for the dancing was awesome and he took requests from all the kids! He is so easy to work with and gives great advice on how he feels the order of the reception would best fit your wedding. I am so thankful we found him in the Carmel/Monterey area!

Thank you Lisa & Will – your wedding reception at Sterling Hills Hotel, Sacramento was absolutely breath taking. I especially enjoyed working with property coordinator Kelsey Gallagher. Both your videographer Alex www.alexbridgman.com and your photographer Lauren www.laurenfeddersenphotography.com were also a blast to work with. It was truly a pleasure to perform your first dance song live and I’m so happy you liked it!!! Congratulations!!

We had our wedding reception at McCormicks & Kuletos, a restaurant in Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco. Our reception was fairly intimate, with about 80 guests. We did not have a wedding planner, apart from the restaurant coordinator. That said, THE EMCEE, DJ & MUSICIAN were all very important parts of our wedding. So when I found Pete online, I certainly felt as though I hit big. Emcee, DJ, Musician ALL IN ONE. He certainly carried the entire event, and our guests gave us nothing but compliments about him. But what I loved about Pete the most is how PROFESSIONAL AND EFFICIENT he is. He helped us figure out for ourselves what we want for our wedding program and music. Step by step, he helped us build our wedding program down to every detail. He has this online system where you can choose songs from a list, and see the most popular songs for every category (first dance, father-daughter dance, etc.). Pete puts a lot of time and effort into planning for his events. He even went to our venue at least once before the wedding to see for himself how the wedding day will look like. He really is a gem in this business.

My husband and I were married at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe in San Diego County. Pete was such an instrumental part of the planning process for our wedding and an absolute pleasure to work with. He developed timelines for our big day that ensured everything went smoothly. Most importantly, the music Pete played on our wedding day was so personal and beautiful - it meant so much to us! Pete played classical guitar before and during our ceremony, which really set the tone. He had great suggestions and also was able to play the theme to the Princess Bride as I walked down the aisle, which my husband and I requested. During the cocktail hour, Pete played guitar and sang beautifully, creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Working with the timelines he created, he coordinated our dinner timeline and speeches (Pete is basically the guy who makes sure your wedding goes according to plan!). Pete DJ'd and emceed for the rest of the night, ensuring that the songs for our first dances were excellent versions, and was able to find different versions to match our style. Some of our requests were pretty obscure because they were songs my husband grew up with abroad - Pete was able to find great versions of every song we asked for.

When I first listened to Pete's live guitar recordings on his website, I knew he was the musician we were looking for. We wanted an elegant and low-key tone for our wedding which Pete created. Pete is so enthusiastic and kind, and I really enjoyed planning with him. He really knows what he is doing and is able to pace weddings in the right way. If we could relive our wedding over and over, we'd want Pete to do the music every time!

My daughter selected Pete Goslow as her music/dj vendor for her wedding. Pete planned everything with her well in advance and was extremely flexible. He played live guitar during the ceremony and at cocktails and was the DJ during dinner and then dancing which was in a separate space at our venue. In all, he had four sites to manage. Everything was great. he did an amazing job. We would definitely recommend Pete without any reservations.

Thank you so much Mona! It was truly my pleasure playing a special role on your daughter Deana & Oren’s wedding day last Saturday. The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe was such an intimate and exclusive setting - incredible. In-house property manager & wedding coordinator extraordinaire Kecia Kelley was truly outstanding, making everything flow so smoothly behind the scenes - she really is special.

We recently got married at Twin Oaks Garden Estate in San Marcos, CA & Pete was our dj, emcee, musician, entertainer, timeline planner… practically everything you need in a Dj & then some! For our first meet & greet, he was very flexible, understanding & was able to work around our hectic schedule to set up a conference call to go through all the details…. Not only did he provide a good first impression, but left us with lasting impression that we just haaaad to have him as our DJ! Throughout the planning process, he provides a personal webpage to log in to input the names of your wedding party, timeline, must play/do not play music list, he also listened to our thoughts, offered suggestions based on his experiences & knowledge… & my, was he very attentive & very detailed oriented for a man! Hah, but honestly it just goes to show how very committed & dedicated he is to his craft. Pete was able to execute a solid timeline for the seamless flow of both the ceremony and reception, we couldn't have gone through the wedding without him & surely was well worth the investment. Pete went above & beyond what we could have ever imagined, we can't possibly thank him enough…. definitely recommend to have him for not just weddings but any special event! In addition, we heard Pete has exclusively expanded his services to northern region of Cali, they are very fortunate to have him… his repertoire just keeps getting bigger & we are so excited for him! Schedule a meet & greet with him ASAP, definitely won't regret it :)

Yours truly,
Mr. & Mrs. Beltran

We recently got married in San Marcos (North County San Diego) at the Green Gables Wedding Estate. Throughout the planning process, we both agreed that the music can make or break and wedding--especially with a group of friends like ours, who love to dance. We opted to not have a photo booth or anything that would distract people from being on the dance floor, as it was our #1 priority.
We selected Pete because of his versatility--he was able to play live music during cocktail hour, at dinner, and during my father-daughter dance. He seamlessly switched to DJing when needed, and we got multiple compliments on how great the music was at the wedding--the dance floor was never empty!
As far as the booking and planning process went, Pete has this down: it was all organized, simple, and he was definitely capable of catering to a variety of couples, either those very particular or those with more of a loose plan. We consulted with him both via phone and email, as we were planning from afar. Pete's live music playlist is extensive, and he was able to get the most obscure songs we requested for the day of. He kept the evening flowing smoothly, and we especially loved his live music.
We also recently heard he has expanded his service to NorCal as well; I'll definitely be telling my Bay Area friends about him! He made the night as wonderful (and the lead up/planning process as easy and smooth!) as we could have ever asked!

I was told that no wedding is ever perfect, but mine was because of his attention to detail. I cannot express how much I would recommend using Pete for your wedding.
