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 travelled to Nags Head, NC to DJ our wedding. He set up speakers on the beach for our ceremony, did uplighting and hung cafe lights in reception room, which all looked great! He was very professional and kept the party going. I highly recommend him!

Gary Gauldin goes the extra mile for his clients! Our son and his bride-to-be had a wedding scheduled on October 9 in Nags Head, North Carolina and despite a challenging situation and a tropical storm prediction, Gary insisted on honoring his commitment and headed out to do the event. We had told him we were currently without power the morning of the wedding, but he replied he had a generator that would play his equipment. Well not only did he manage to arrive with a generator large enough to run the whole house, but he also stayed an extra day as the wedding was delayed due to the effects of Hurricane Mathew. While not the wedding we had envisioned, it was wonderful, intimate and lovely and our guests danced the night away! Gary did a wonderful and professional job - going way above and beyond what we had any right to expect from any vendor. I recommend him highly for a fun, and professionally done event!

My guests raved about his music selection. For some good humor, he even threw in "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" as the rain sprinkled down on our dance floor. And many continued to dance while Gary's music never stopped! He arrived hours before the event and was totally self-sufficient with his own tent and table. Book him!

Gary was just fantastic. We booked him almost a year in advance and spoke before the event to iron out the details. I had one rule: I did not want another Bat Mitzvah! I had one 15 years ago, and it was fantastic, but I wanted my wedding to have a much different feel. I wanted my family, my parents' friends, and my friends to be happy and on the dancefloor the entire night ... and thanks to Gary, that's exactly what happened. Gary took the time to speak with me and prepare the songs for my ceremony, assuaging all my fears about music running out or not being long enough for the processional. It was perfect. He was also so helpful with the father/daughter dance ... my dad and I wanted to do a surprise and mix two songs to surprise our family and friends with a dance we had been choreographing. I asked Gary to mix the song before the wedding so we had time to practice before the big day, and he was very helpful, making several edits until it was perfect. I wanted to surprise the groom with an acoustic song ... and guess what? Gary was incredibly helpful with that as well. Everything went so smoothly: the ceremony, the cocktail hour, the surprises, and the reception, all the way until the end of the night. It was such a pleasure working with Gary, and I hope I find another excuse to throw a big party, just to have the chance to work with him again!

We booked Gary based on reviews on wedding wire and seeing his online planning forms which were awesome to have for planning all of our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music! He has a great music selection and can get any requests he doesn't already have. We requested some Irish Celtic music a day or two before the wedding and he was able to download it for our cocktail hour, which was a great addition to the wedding. The music selection he has is FABULOUS and he did a great job mixing a wide variety of music throughout the evening for us. The dance floor was full from the time we finished dinner, it was such an awesome fun evening of music and dancing I would absolutely recommend him to others!

Gary was awesome!! He was so helpful with everything! Making my day just as special and as fun as I wanted! Music at my wedding was at the top of my list and I am so glad I had Gary! He found all of the songs that I wanted, played exactly at the right time and made it perfect!

Gary DJed my wedding at the Irvine Estate, he was AMAZING. Firstly, the website setup and planning forms are SO helpful! I was able to add songs ahead of time as they came to mind and the song library is incredibly extensive. Our first dance song was a cover from a relatively unknown band, but Gary was able to get the song without any problems. On top of playing the songs on my "must play" list, he made sure that the other songs he played were the same sound/rhythm/style as the "must play" ones and it was a HUGE hit. I got so many compliments on how good the music was (thanks Gary!). Even our older relatives were breaking it down on the dance floor! Gary was on top of everything and was perfect as the master of ceremonies. I'm one thousand percent happy with our choice for Gary as our DJ and I would go out of my way to book him for any other events that we would need a DJ for.

DJ Gary was FANTASTIC. Gary played our wedding last weekend and we couldn't be happier. Gary was responsive, helpful, friendly, and more than that - he put our minds at ease. He knew our venue well as he had played other weddings there in the past, which was really reassuring. The style of music was spot-on and seriously, I've never been to a wedding where people danced so much! Our wedding was a truly amazing party, and I credit so much of that to Gary. He knew exactly what music to play during dinner - loud enough to enjoy, but quiet enough that people could still converse easily - and then what music to play to get people out on the dance floor. When people had been dancing a couple of hours and were starting to fall off the dance floor, he knew how to change the tone to give people a break for a while, and then he knew exactly how to ramp it back up with an awesome fun classic to give everyone their second wind. I can't recommend Gary highly enough - he truly made our wedding night the most fun night of our lives. THANK YOU GARY!!!
