Greg is awesome. He played the perfect music during the dinner and cocktail hour. Everyone commented that it was not too crazy or loud and set a nice mood. He introduced everyone perfectly with all the right pronunciations and executed all the traditional events (cake cutting, garter toss, bouquet toss) and made them fun and not embarrassing at all. He also played the perfect music during the dancing. My husband and I have very non-dancing families, but the music was so appropriate that everyone did. It was so great and almost everyone came up to me after and said how nice the music was. He made everything go along so smoothly and I would recommend him to ANYONE! :)

What can I say? AMAZING!
I have used Greg and several of his DJs for numerous events over the years and could not have been happier. When it was time for my daughters wedding I knew he was the only choice. Greg was outstanding from helping with song choices; to keeping everything on time; to keeping everyone on the dance floor an hour after our end time! By far the best DJ!

Greg is very professional and easy to work with. He always responded quickly to emails and was very organized. He offered great advice to ensure that the reception flowed smoothly and efficiently. He played all of the songs we requested and also adhered to our do not play list. We got rave reviews from our guests on the reception music, and the dance floor was busy all night! I’d definitely recommend Greg Gates.

"One of the most important decisions you can make when planning your wedding, is your choice in entertainment. Above all else, that is what your guest will remember most of all. We were impressed with Greg from the very first meeting. He took the opportunity not to sell his services to us, but to get to know each other to ensure a right fit. It was! Greg ensured he was aware of every detail of our reception yet was not intrusive in obtaining those details. In doing so, Greg knew what we wanted during our wedding and worked closely with each of our vendors to ensure a smooth evening. He ensured a smooth transition from cocktail hour to final dance. Attention to detail is his speciality and with Greg, no detail is too small! Many guest have commented about what a great time they had and have never danced as much at any other wedding! A great time was had by all and I am quite positive it was because of Greg and his expertise. Next to agreeing to get married, hiring Greg was the second best decision we made! It will be for you as well!"

Greg did an amazing job at our wedding. From the first time we met, I had complete confidence in him. He is very reasonably priced and there are no hidden added fees . He was very detail oriented and committed to helping us develop a vision for our wedding. He played all the songs we discussed ahead of time and filled in with songs that totally fit the energy and vibe of our party. Everyone was commenting to me all night about how great the DJ was. Not only did he do a great job with music but he is so caring and genuine, checking in with us! I just can't say enough about Greg; he was the best money spent at our wedding. You will not be disappointed if you hire Greg Gates.

Working with Greg was such a good decision...he really played a big part in making our wedding the perfect night it turned out to be. I was so nervous about finding the perfect DJ especially because our venue has a beautiful outdoor area that would be a tempting alternative to dancing for guests. The first time I spoke to Greg I immediately felt so comfortable and relieved... Sure enough, the music was absolutely perfect and the dance floor was packed the entire night with guests of all ages - including the usual non-dancers.

Greg gives us great planning tools as he wants to make sure our personalities are incorporated into the evening, but my now-husband and I gave very little direction as it just isn't our area of expertise. As a result we weren't quite sure what to expect and put our trust in Greg. Only two nights prior we finally gave him some lists of play and do-not-play songs. We were right not to worry...he was incredible from start to finish, getting to know the crowd and playing the perfect songs. I would recommend Greg to anyone without hesitation!

We absolutely LOVED working with Greg. From the beginning to the end of the process he had a fantastic balance of being both personable and very professional. When we told our caterer which DJ we were working she completely lit up and said “you just made my day that much better knowing he’s your DJ. He’s so great!”
He sees the job of being a wedding DJ as much more than just that- he understands the whole event from beginning to end and he truly delivered on the big day. He had a good read on the group and did a great job playing music that got people excited about being there! We highly recommend working with him!

Greg Gates is awesome!!! From the first moment we met him we could tell he was the type of person who really cares and has passion. He kept our dance party going all night. Before the wedding he met with us to help us pick out the type of music we wanted and to get a feel for the type of night we wanted. He really listened to us and delivered. He figured out how to play the perfect mix of music to attract all generations to the dance floor. For those concerned there was no modern music played, do not fear. He really stays on top of the trends and finds the right mix of new and old. As most have said Greg really goes above and beyond his required duties and checks in to make sure everything is perfect for the Bride and Groom. He is there to help in any way possible. Also, it should be noted that he runs the day in a very classy way, his voice and approach to introductions is great, he makes it fun yet very classy. I hands down recommend booking Greg for your wedding, we have gotten so many compliments on how fun our dance party was because of his music. We wanted a fun wedding we would never forget, and Greg helped make that happen!

We found DJ Greg Gates through a friend who had him do their wedding and immediately loved his style. When we went to meet with him the first time, we knew immediately we wanted to book him. He is very detail oriented and you can tell he is very passionate about his work and really cares about making a splash at your event! I can't say enough about how great Greg was at our wedding. Not only did he play a great variety of tunes and kept everyone dancing all night, but he was also very accomodating and kept checking in to see if we needed anything. And best part is he is very reasonably priced, in fact he probably should charge more for his service! From the planning to the actual event, it was a pleasure working with Greg and I would gladly refer him to all my friends when they get engages :) Thanks Greg!!

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. I tend to be very controlling and had a hard time leaving our big day in the hands of a bunch of vendors. That is until I met Greg. He had me from day one and knew exactly what we wanted. Greg walked us through every step and was able to answer ANY wedding questions we came up with. The morning of our big day I knew that even if I had a few difficulties with other vendors that Greg would save the day. He is much more than a DJ and we would recommend him to anyone that would listen. He knew just when to check in to make sure we were having an incredible day. All of our guests raved about how amazing the music was and everyone was on the dance floor until the very last minute.
NOT ONLY IS GREG INCREDIBLY TALENTED, he is funny, friendly and open. He was the first person out of all of our guests to send us a picture of the wedding which was great because we had nothing to look at that night at the hotel.
If you are going to hire anyone, make sure you make the right deicion and hire Greg Gates/Entertainment Concepts. TRUST ME!

Greg was great from the first meeting through the end of the event. He listened to us and took into account our preferences during the planning before the event. During the event itself he was critical for helping us through all the components of the reception (and helping to make sure we didn't ruin the cake when cutting it!). He was very responsive via phone and email and helped make the process as smooth as possible.

What can you say about DJ Greg Gates other than "He's Awesome"!!

Not only was he a great DJ, but he also kept the event flowing and there was never a dull moment.

During the initial pre-wedding meeting he listened to all of our ideas and request and brought them to fruition. He also did an excellent job and taking our song request and then adding to it with songs from the same genre and some surprises that got everyone moving. To me, having a great DJ is one of the most important aspects of a wedding and DJ Greg went above and beyond!! I highly recommend him to anyone getting married in the Northeast.

I can't tell you how many people came up to me that night and even after the wedding and have said "Alexis your DJ was amazing" "Alexis that music was awesome". At most weddings guests fizzle out after dinner and dancing. I would say 75% or more of the guests were still at the wedding when it was the very last song close to midnight. Lets talk about the last song "Piano Man", that is a memory that my husband and I will have forever. Having everyone get in a circle on the dance floor and just sing and dance together was such a perfect way to end the night. The energy was insane, the music choices selected were spot on for every part of the night and were perfect for our group of guests. Greg has a way of understanding his client's style and personality and turning that into an amazing night. The 10 minute dance set at the beginning had EVERYONE on the dance floor and really set the tone of the night. Greg was always there to inform my husband and I when important parts of the night were coming up. The night flowed flawlessly. I can't say anything but Greg was perfect and I would 110% recommend him to ANYONE!

We choose Greg to be our Dj by vendor referral and by all the amazing reviews we read about him online. I have to say he was not only so perfectly organized and great with the music, but he went above and beyond to make sure other details of our wedding went smoothly as well! He was very involved and professional, I had no worries about how the party turn out! He started the party and it lasted until the last minute of the night! I can't say enough good about this DJ, he rocks! You would be missing out if you didn't have him "Entertain" your wedding. We give him 10 stars :)

We choose Greg as our DJ based on all the fabulous reviews we saw online, and we were not disappointed. He was by far the best vendor that we hired during the whole day. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
We had our reception at the New England Aquarium and he kept the dance floor packed the entire night. But aside from his amazing dj skills, he helped us with little tasks as well - cleaning our cake cutting utensils, ensuring our center pieces were taken care of, etc, etc.
We got multiple compliments the day after the ceremony saying that we had one of the best djs ever. And I would completely agree.
As one small request we asked that he play the University of Michigan fight song (our alma mater). We also asked that he not play another fight songs. And I know for a fact, that multiple guests tried to bribe him into playing other fight songs. And we appreciate him turning them down respectfully. :)
He kept the party going, the dance floor packed, and in short, he was absolutely fabulous. Searching for a dj? Definitely use entertainment concepts.

He kept the party going, the dance floor packed, and in short, he was absolutely fabulous. Searching for a dj? Definitely use entertainment concepts. Read less

Greg was our DJ for our wedding at the aquarium. He was fantastic from start to finish. He really listened to what we were saying when we first met and was extremely professional throughout the whole time we worked with him. He is responsive and reliable through email and phone conversations leading up to the wedding. But best of all, he handled our reception beautifully. While there were several last minute changes to the schedule to the day (read: photographer was late to the ceremony and delayed the entire day), Greg got in everything we wanted without missing a beat. While my husband and I were stressed and a little frantic, Greg made sure to check in with us throughout the evening and our guests were none the wiser. He was professional, but fun, and provided not only great music but also great guidance and prompts to us, the bridal party, and guests throughout the night. Really a class act without being stuffy. I will be telling all my friends who get engaged to use Greg. He really was our rock for the night. He played just what we wanted and was just truly a gem.

Greg was absolutely fabulous. Seriously, if you are looking for a professional, experienced DJ who will go above and beyond to do whatever it takes to make the day run smoothly, look no where else. He was recommended to us by our photographer and after a meeting with him at his home, we were sold. He is not simply a DJ but someone you can rely on to ensure the entire event runs well. He went through the entire night with me step by step, ensured the music was exactly what we wanted and represented our style and interests. He approached my parents as they were previewing the reception before it started and said if there was anything they needed throughout the night, just look to him and he would make sure it was taken care of. We had so many people compliment me on the song list, although I truly can't take credit for it - it was all Greg. He had guests dancing throughout the entire night and never once did the dance floor seem empty or the party appear to be trailing off. We had planned to finish the party 45 minutes after the bar closed, thinking any more time without the bar and people would be angry, but not one even noticed the bar had closed because everyone was on the dance floor. We could have kept the partying going for much longer! I truly can't emphasize how amazing Greg is and would absolutely recommend him to any of my friends getting married. My parents even contemplated flying him down to Texas to do my brother's wedding....

Greg was truly amazing at our wedding! He was so helpful with the wedding song ideas I needed help with and always was reachable and available when I needed him. At our wedding he played amazing music and had the timing right for everything. I was so happy and our families and friends all loved him too. He makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed and you really can just enjoy your day and no he will take care of it all, music, lighting, etc. I have been to a lot of weddings and events and he by far was the best dj ever!

Of all the things I took from my wedding, Greg ranks at the very top of the list of things I'd recommend. In fact, I was so pleased with his services that I'm excited for a friend or family member to get married simply so I can recommend Greg.

Greg is attentive to things one would not even think to consider when choosing a DJ. He spends a long time preparing with you but not a minute is wasted. His goal is to help make your wedding the best day it can be and he did just that at ours. He doesn't do this by announcing his presence and guaranteeing that he'll throw a good party, but rather, he stays to the side and respects that the celebration is for you. From what I understand, that is not as common as it should be with DJs.

There should be no hesitation when it comes to a DJ in this case. If you have the opportunity to hire Greg, do it. Even if he weren't incredibly reasonably priced, he'd be worth every single penny you spend.

My best friend used Greg Gates of Entertainment Concepts for her wedding, and that is how I got his contact info. When Greg and I first met, my fiance and I were very impressed by his professionalism. He always put our preferences first and was always patient in listening to our requests. He also has this great way of putting you at ease—and relaxing on your big day is something you really need! When I was working with him, I really got the sense that he wanted to make sure our big day was perfect and he accommodated everything—he even spent 2 hours on the phone with me, playing different versions of our ceremony music so we got everything right! We were especially impressed by his masterful technique of getting the party started and making sure all the guests were having fun. Lastly, he is very considerate and kind-hearted—he was the first person to get me a drink after the ceremony! We really love Greg, and you will not be disappointed by his services, great attitude, lovely voice and professionalism.

I wholeheartedly recommend Entertainment Concepts. We were beyond thrilled to book Greg Gates as our DJ for our wedding. From the moment we first met with him, we knew we were in good hands. If you don't want to have to worry about your reception, book him. He is an incredibly talented DJ who can read a crowd and keep a multi-generational room happy.

He also sees his role as bigger than just acting as the DJ--he wants to ensure you'll have a successful reception. He'll periodically check in to make sure you are taken care of and don't need anything, and if you do need something, he'll make it happen regardless of whether it relates back to the music. For example, if the room is too hot or cold, he'll track down the right people to make sure it is more comfortable. Honestly, he's a wonderful person to work with. We couldn't have been more thrilled to get to do so.

We used Jim for wedding, and he was great. We talked with him and the company owner, Greg, a number of times before the wedding to make sure we were on the same page, which was awesome.
They had the timeline down and were full insightful suggestions. Jim acted as a second set of eyes day-of, making sure everything stayed on track. Since our ceremony was on-site, Jim did both our ceremony music and our reception music, which was great because we got the music we wanted and saved a ton of cash with not having to hire a string quartet. The transition from ceremony to reception was seamless--you wouldn't even know he had to move!

Jim was open to using our "must play" list (others said that they needed control over the creative process) and supplemented it appropriately. The dance floor was full all night long! My only small complaint is that he forgot to remind us to make our thank-you speech before cutting the cake, though the ultimate responsibilty for this clearly falls on us!

Greg was our favorite wedding vendor (and we were lucky enough to have fantastic vendors for our wedding all around). He was responsive, took the time to really learn about us and our tastes and personalities. He was great about learning our family dynamics, checked all details thoroughly, and rolled amazingly with all the inevitable punches. He created exactly the mood we had hoped for. Greg is worth is weight in gold and his price doesn't come even close to that. I would recommend him most, most highly.

We had a wonderful time working with DJ Greg Gates on the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We chose Greg based on unsolicited reviews from three different people in the span of a week--as soon as got engaged it seemed like everyone we ran into was randomly recommending this DJ! We figured it was a sign we should meet him, though we worried no one could live up to the rave reviews we had been hearing. Thankfully, Greg surpassed all of our expectations. He was a pleasure to work with and a huge asset on the day of the wedding.

Greg took the time to get to know us and our musical tastes in the months leading up to the wedding and did an excellent job of blending music that was completely us with selections that got all of our guests excited to dance, just as we were hoping. He was by far the most organized and detail oriented vendor we worked with--by the day of our wedding Greg knew our timeline in and out and kept everything running smoothly.

Greg went above and beyond the role a DJ typically fills to make sure our wedding day was everything we expected and more. Technically our venue provided a day-of-coordinator, but we barely saw her the day of the wedding and were unimpressed by our experience with her. Greg, on the other hand, stepped in and took care of needs we didn't even know we had. He made a point of checking in occassionally throughout the night, making sure we had enough to eat and drink, and when I mentioned that the guests were melting on the dance floor and we couldn't find the coordinator to raise the sides of the tent, he tracked down the necessary people from the venue to take care of it.

I am incredibly grateful we had the opportunity to work with Greg Gates on our wedding day and would recommend him wholeheartedly to other couples.

We first met with D Greg Gates and was disappointed to hear that he was booked for our wedding date, because we LOVED him. Fortunately, he had one of his DJs - DJ Scott, do our wedding. He was great. We were able to meet with the two of them and we hit it off. We were having trouble choosing some certain songs for the Mother/Son dance and for our Introduction song, and DJ Scott and DJ Greg Gates thought outside the box and came up with some awesome ideas. They were both so easy to get in touch with too. We were able to email updated Play and Do Not Play lists to them throughout the time before the wedding. DJ Scott stuck to those lists too. We didn't want the Electric Slide played at our wedding and DJ Scott made sure it wasn't played, despite a very persistent guest who requested it all night. DJ Scott also really kept everyone on track with timing. When it was time for Introductions, or to cut the cake, etc., he waited until he wasn't interrupting anyone, and would come up to us and let us know what'd be happening in a couple minutes. This was awesome. I felt like I didn't need to even THINK about what time it was or what we needed to do next. We were able to actually enjoy our reception! Scott even let us know when they had put our plated dinners on our table since we were both away from it at the time. Our caterer didn't let us know our food was ready for us and Scott didn't want to see our food go cold. He was also very in-tune to the volume of our music. During dinner, it wasn't so loud that people had to yell to one another at their tables. During the dancing, he had SO MANY people on the dance floor. Even my 66 year old father took turns with my husband giving each other piggy back rides around the dance floor. Our bartender is partly to thank for that I'm sure, but Scott did a seriously great job giving people an awesome party!

Greg is the most amazing DJ ever!!! He goes above and beyond just spinning the tunes by truly acting as a day-of project manager and partnering with your facility to make sure everything from your grand entrance to cutting the cake to ensuring you remember to take a private moment break is done seamlessly. He even "talked me off the ledge" when a guest of mine did something a little uncool and got me back to focusing on the fun instead of stewing on silly things I'll forget years from now.

And working with Greg starts well before hitting the dance floor- he recommends vendors if you are still unsure about who to go with and he really gets to know you, not just your list of please play/do not play list. Greg's friendly demeanor, vast knowledge about music (he is not "just" a wedding DJ where you hope he has the songs you like-he actively participates in the music industry at large), and simple desire to make your event the best it can be puts him far ahead of the pack!

My guests danced from the beginning to the end of the night, even during parts of cocktail hour which is practically unheard of! Everyone couldn't stop saying how much fun they had and how great the DJ was at reading the crowd and giving them what they want.

I can't say enough about how much I loved working with Greg; any time I ever have to hire a DJ, it will be him!

While Greg wasn't my personal DJ for the wedding, Chip, one of his employees was AWESOME. Both did an incredible job talking us through the whole process and was upfront and honest with what we would need and what our best bets were to keep the party going. Chip did an amazing job, playing just the right music to keep everyone on their feet through most of the night. Also, he was ingenious at incorporating musical suggestions from the guests seamlessly throughout the night. Greg provides a great service at a great value and I wholeheartedly recommend him for ANYONE'S event!

Chip did an amazing job, playing just the right music to keep everyone on their feet through most of the night. Also, he was ingenious at incorporating musical suggestions from the guests seamlessly throughout the night. Greg provides a great service at a great value and I wholeheartedly recommend him for ANYONE'S event! Read less

I was very impressed with Greg's work. He took the time to get to know us and our music selections so that the day of the wedding his selections were intuitive and the flow was seamless. His attention to detail and professionalism made him a tremendous resource on the wedding day. It seems like turned to my husband every few minutes to say "I love this song" and the dance floor was packed all night long! We mentioned to Greg in conversation that we were debating hiring a professional videographer, but we really only wanted to record the ceremony and the first dance. Greg went above and beyond by inviting us to place our video camera on a tripod next to him so that he could start and stop it for us at the appropriate times. As a result, we have the ceremony and first dance on disk without having to ask a family member to experience the wedding from behind a video camera. He also went out of his way to make sure that we had a few uninterrupted minutes to have dinner at the reception!

Greg Gates is an exceptional DJ! He is professional and makes a new and personal playlist for every wedding. Also, he is well spoken, wears a tuxedo, and is very kind to guests. During our wedding, he played the music we wanted and everyone danced and had a fabulous time! He made sure the bride and the groom were comfortable (he even got us drinks and reminded us to eat our dinner) throughout the wedding reception. He is a little more expensive than the average DJ, but the extra money is worth having such a professional and eloquent DJ. We highly recommend him. (In fact, my maid of honor is getting married this summer, and she is using him).

Great all around guy - can't say enough about him.

Greg helped with every stage of our planning, from music to coordinating other vendors, to deciding on flowers, and we could not have done it without him! He took the time to get to know us and did a great job playing music that reflected our tastes. He also kept things moving at the wedding and even made sure that we got to eat dinner!

Greg Gates is by far the best DJ I have ever heard! He knows just the right music to play to keep everyone dancing all night. Most of my friends who got married after me used him as well because everyone remembers how much fun they had at my wedding thanks to him!
