Greg was fun and easy to work with! He learned songs for our ceremony and was a fabulous DJ during our reception. We still stalk Greg's fb page in order to hear him play live music! I would highly recommend using Greg for your wedding as a DJ or as a musician!

I was debating whether or not to go with another DJ service when I got an email from Greg. A DJ and a musician? I could have BOTH at my wedding??? That got my attention - as did his laid back style. No high pressure selling, just good music! Any hesitation I had about having live music was quickly put to rest when I heard him play at a local venue... good mainstream vibe with enough of a blues-y edge to keep it real.

We decided to have Greg play at the ceremony and during our cocktail hour, then switch to DJ'ing after dinner for dancing. It was the perfect mix and created just the right atmosphere for each part of our night. We also had Greg do a custom GOBO for our dance floor and uplighting, and the end result was amazing. He helped to create the perfect look for our night and our favorite picture wouldn't have been possible without his help. I highly recommend!!

Greg is the most professional organized Dj out there hands down. He is also extremely talented as a musician. I really was happy with our choice. He did an excellent job. You won't be disappointed if you use him! He is worth way more than he asks for.

Perfect. My (now) wife and I got married recently and Greg was the DJ and MC at our wedding. We first met Greg when we heard him playing Spanish guitar at South Coast Winery when we were driving around looking for venues in Temecula. He was getting pretty deep into the Mexican and Brazilian love songs, and my wife - who is from Mexico City - was loving his music so much that she made me go up and get his card. We talked briefly, and he shared that he was a DJ too. That sealed the deal.

We were concerned about our DJ (generally) because I am very white, my wife is very Mexican, and we have very different music tastes. We shared that we needed someone who could seamlessly incorporate both American music and Mexican music, so as not to alienate either crowd. We also needed someone who could speak in English and Spanish at the reception (as my wife's family speaks only limited English). Greg hit a home run.

As far as the guitar at the ceremony, it was straight out of a movie. Everyone was commenting about his guitar playing and his singing, and it fit perfectly with the vineyard we got married in. When you envision someone playing guitar at your ceremony, you are picturing Greg.

As far as the reception, it was apparent that Greg really listened to us when we told him what music we liked, and his playlist was customized. This wasn't your standard "Journey - Don't Stop Believin" playlist. We heard song-after-song that we had mentioned in passing, as well as other songs in genres we liked but hadn't specifically mentioned. He really listened to us and got to know us. The dance floor was PACKED the entire night, and that was ALL Greg.

Greg Shibley was the best! He was so nice to assist us on our wedding day! We booked Greg a year in advance and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice! Greg is a true professional and I truly appreciated his promptness to any and all questions, his suggestions, and overall his musician talents! He's fabulous and I highly recommend him for any future events you are planning!

We had the pleasure of having Greg Shibley provide live music for our wedding ceremony as well as DJ services for our reception. Just wanted to say that he did a wonderful job. Greg is a talented musician who plays the guitar beautifully. The live guitar music and vocals were such a great addition to our wedding. Plus it amazes me how he put everything together by himself, live music, sound system and DJ station and was still able to put things together professionally and smoothly. Greg is very friendly, geniune and professional at the same time.
One thing that really stood out to us is that he went above and beyond and allowed us to practice our ukulele/singing performance at one of his weekly gigs which helped to ease our performance anxiety. Because of this we were able to do really well performing on our wedding day. I would highly recommend this vendor to anyone planning a wedding who really appreciates classy/live music and would like the convenience of having both live music and DJ services combined.

I hired Greg for my wedding and at first I would like to hire him both as a DJ and Guitarist. However, since I need to revise my budget I decided to hire him as my DJ only and boy I was so glad to do so ! Greg knows what need to be done to make my wedding a lot of fun. I don't need to tell him or give him a long music list to make my reception so much alive ! He is professional, always on top of things and flexible. I am glad that I chose him as my DJ. I def would recommend Greg to anyone of my friends. Thank you Greg for making our wedding a special one !

Greg absolutely nailed our wedding. It was a pretty complicated affair....we had a medieval wedding and during the cocktail hour we had several games for our guests to play in preparation for an archery tournament between the groom and groomsmen at the reception. The tournament itself involved our entrance, each bridesmaid adorning each groomsman with a sash, the men walking down to the field, the actual competition, and crowning the victor. We wanted music basically for all of it - and even my husband (who was very vocal about not even wanting a DJ) commented on what an outstanding job Greg did. He played awesome and festive music at all the right times that totally set the mood and did a great job of fanfare music and trumpets sounding during the tournament.

His other musical selections were fantastic as well. After a discussion with him on some of the more specific music choices for the ceremony and other events I ended up letting him pick a lot of those songs himself. I am SO glad I did this - not only was it a huge relief not to worry about those small details but WOW he totally exceeded my expectations. The music he chose for the ceremony was breath taking.

Music selections aside, Greg deserves so much credit for making sure everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding. He made sure everything happened at the right time. He provided microphones for the officiant and ceremony, the speeches, and the person who narrated our tournament - all of that went so smoothly because of his cues and preparation. He also took a trip to the venue with me beforehand in order to be fully prepared on the day of.

And even though we had so much going on during the reception (half of our guests were in line to use the bow and arrow and the other half were at the photo booth) he managed to keep people on the dance floor right up until the last minute.

Throughout the whole process he was professional and always responded quickly. I give him a glowing recommendation!

Greg performed/worked at our wedding in June 2013 and we can't say enough good things about him. We wanted the opposite of a paint-by-numbers, cookie-cutter wedding ceremony, and Greg's services fit perfectly into our day.

He's professional in every manner. He's personable, punctual, communicative and responsive.
He's accommodating: He's what you need him to be: a classical guitarist, a wedding singer, a DJ, a lighting specialist. And we will make every effort to meet or talk with you on your schedule to help you plan prior to your event date.
He's meticulous: Since he had never performed/worked at the venue we had chosen, he requested that he conduct a walk-through about a month before the wedding date to map out the logistics - his attention to detail is a godsend as he will know how to prevent issues and solve any that do come up.
He's affordable (and he's worth every penny): We ordered his DJ/Musician package. His prices were cheaper than most other DJs and yet he provided more value than we could've expected. The sound was great all around - from the acoustic music during the ceremony, to the cocktail hour and dinner time background music, to the speeches, to the dancing music - the sound was always clear and audible to just about everyone at our outdoor venue. His personalized service was the icing on the already abundant cake. He learned an alt-country song that is dear to us and played it for our first dance. He played a beautiful rendition of the song and that dance stands out as the single-most memorable moment of our wedding day. We are eternally grateful to him for that performance alone.

His website is a great tool for organizing your wedding day timeline. Also, he's got a great online tool to search for music and set up the playlist you want him to spin.

We love Greg and we are so glad we found him. We would be happy to provide references for him.

First of all, there isn't a category for cocktail hour musician but Greg did that too. (so I added "entertainer")
Anyway, we just had our amazing wedding in Ocean side and Greg provided ALL the music. From even before the ceremony all the way till the end of the night. We found him on pretty short notice, but we threw it all together and it went great. For one thing he always answered our calls and emails right away so that made us feel good from the beginning. :)
And of course the music was perfect.
We definitely recommend Greg and gsharp entertainment.

We got married at a vineyard near San Diego in Temecula, CA. Greg played acoustic guitar for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and it was amazing. He did an incredible job and went beyond our expectations by playing an original composition. Guests loved the song selection and commented on the impact of having live music. Greg was professional, on time, and willing to work on specific details of the event. I would book Greg again for any event!!!

We were having a modest ceremony and reception at a residence and we wanted to keep things simple but elegant. Greg understood the vibe we were going for and fit the bill perfectly.
He played some really nice guitar music and then transitioned over to the DJ thing. The whole thing, even from the planning stages, went way smoother than I thought it would.
We would definitely recommend Greg.

We absolutely LOVED the fact that we had a wonderful musician AND DJ for our wedding. Greg's client login allowed us to enter songs, think about specific music we would or would not like, and communicate easily with him during the time leading up to the wedding. We received so many raves about his performance for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and we couldn't be more thrilled!

Also, Greg went above and beyond to help me prepare a serenade for my husband during the reception. It was so much fun to practice and prepare, then pull off the surprise! The day was absolutely perfect to that point.

I will say that you should make very sure you communicate clearly about things you do not want, and make sure that anyone involved (i.e. planner/coordinator, family, future spouse) are on board. This is true for most things, but ESPECIALLY on your wedding day!

Overall, I would completely recommend G Sharp for anything requiring a DJ and/or musician. They are truly a class act!!
