Gary is a professional DJ and MC with over 25 years and 5 thousands events to his credit. Music has always been a major part of his life. Raised with Motown and Soul as the primary background tunes at home. Gary was a teen in the 80's and grew to love the music of his generation. Influences from parents made a fan of Country and Big Band. Embracing all genres of music makes him a natural Disc Jockey.
After the first 15 years as a full time DJ, Gary expanded his business to offer sound and lighting for stage events. Eventually adding video projection and video production to the growing AV business. This direction lead to creating a new company AVP (Advanced Visual Production). Partnering in 2004 with long time collaborator Lee Dickinson to form what is now the largest AV company in the area. Now when you hire Gary you get the benefit of a great company for any of your event needs. Call me at 804 356-4777 Read less

Gary saved the day for our wedding! We had issues with our previous DJ and had to cancel our contract within a month of our wedding day (talk about freak out!). We were put in contact through another DJ company (Colonial DJs) and he was available and more than willing to help us out. Gary answered all of our phone calls and e-mails promptly and we were able to meet with him when we came to Richmond to do some other wedding plans right before the wedding. Gary has an amazing personality and was fantastic during all aspects of planning and the day of. Gary helped make sure we had all of the songs we wanted and everything happened when it needed. We ended up running behind schedule at the wedding and Gary popped by our table to check with us about making some changes to the schedule he thought would work well and continue the night running smoothly. Once people got out on the dance floor, no one left. He was able to read the crowd and decide what songs from our recommendations and his lists would be best. We really could not have asked for a better end to a terrible situation. Gary was amazing and will definitely help you have a smooth ceremony and a fun reception.

Gary was great! Music sounded great and lights were a awesome bonus! We had an outdoor ceremony and added on the extra system and it helped a lot for guests in the back to hear. He was professional and dressed well. His announcements were clear and you could understand them (not everytime you hear a DJ speak over a system can you under stand them). If I had another event where I needed a DJ, no doubt in my mind I would have Gary back!

Gary was AWESOME! My wife and I couldn't have asked for better service from Gary. He handled our ceremony music, set us up with microphones for the groom and the pastor, and did a phenomenal job at the reception. We expected a good time when we decided to go with Gary, but what we got was like a full on concert. My wife and I describe our wedding reception now to people we see as the best party we've ever been to. Gary definitely made that happen.
Trust me, not your normal DJ. Gary is a true professional, passionate about his work and about your event. He will not disappoint.

I had researched several DJ's for our wedding. We contacted Gary and set up a date to meet in person. Gary was very informative and genuine. His love for what he does really comes through. We clicked and he was booked. Our wedding day came and Gary did such a wonderful job. Everyone at the wedding enjoyed the music and what a great job he did for us. Gary is top notch and we were lucky to have booked him. He truly made our day even more special. Thanks so much Gary. Chris and Steph

Gary was amazingly flexible and provided every detail that I wanted at my wedding. Though I went through many changes in style, organization and budget, he was able to pull everything together into exactly what we wanted. I'd recommend him to anyone for any event as he is an absolute pleasure to work with. Thanks Gary :-)

Gary was a wonderful DJ! We met with him a few times before the wedding and I felt confident that I could trust him to play the kind of music we were looking for without having to give him a list of every song for the entire evening. From the ceremony to the reception he did a great job. He also knew how to get people out on the dance floor! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional reasonably priced DJ for any event.

We came to Gary 10 days before our big event. Not only was he willing to take on the challenge, but he was willing to meet with us as many times as he could beforehand. The event turned out great and we had many compliments on our choice of DJ. Everyone was dancing until their feet hurt! Thanks Gary.

DJ Gary Gauldin was an amazing DJ for our wedding reception. He not only provided great music that was appropriate for the setting and situation throughout the night (from dinner to dancing to garter throwing, cake cutting, and saying goodbye), but he also was very receptive to the guests and played music that he and I discussed beforehand and that guests requested. Beforehand, he took great care in discussing how we wanted the event to go before the wedding reception. He was very detailed in finding out who the key family members and friends and wedding guests were and really set the tone for an elegant, fun, festive, and easygoing atmosphere. He is also very professional and friendly, and is a great entertainer with music, discussion and engages the guests. Overall he is a pleasure to have at any event, but is especially skilled at setting and keeping the appropriate pace at your wedding event, and provided a wonderful experience for my guests and me and my husband. My guests told me he was one of the best DJs they had seen/had at other events, and I agree.
