Gil was amazing to work with and understood our vision when it came to setting the tone of our wedding. Our wedding was very small, only under 30 people which made us worry if it would seem to small of a party, but with thE right mix Gil provided as well as him amping up our guests, everyone, including my husband and I couldn't stop dancing. Gil was so intuitive and honestly took such good care of us, if I ever need a DJ for another event or if one of guest needed one, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Simply perfect!

Thank you Gil!

Gil was absolutely fantastic at every step of the process for our wedding. He made sure to set up multiple meetings to ensure he covered off on anything we needed. We gave him a list of music we wanted as part of the ceremony, cocktail/dinner hour, and reception and he played almost every song (and respected our do not play list). This might seem like it's not a big deal, but when the bride/groom from the last three weddings you've been to are upset because the DJ ignored their wishes, this was a big deal!

On our wedding day he was amazing, all anyone could talk about the week after our wedding was how awesome our DJ was. He was high energy and kept the crowd engaged. I don't think I saw the dance floor empty all night. He even accommodated our request to stay an extra hour to keep the party going!

I can't recommend Gil enough, it was an honor to have him as part of our big day!!

Gil is incredible. I don't feel like I only hired a DJ for my wedding, I feel like we truly made a friend. I found DJ Gil through the open house at our venue and was immediately drawn to his high energy, fun loving personality. I knew instantly that we would hire him! He graciously met my husband and I to get to know us better, and to talk with us about his style and what he offers. We had more contact leading up to the wedding- he genuinely cares about creating a relationship with you. My grandmother passed 5 days before our wedding, and I sort of "dropped the ball" with giving him all the info he needed...but he truly came to the rescue and so much more. He made our wedding THE absolute best day of our lives. He can get ANYONE to dance and have an AMAZING time! I could not have imagined a better day. He will absolutely make your wedding the best day ever, and your guests will have the time of their lives. Most importantly, he listens to what you want...he will make your day exactly how you envision it, and so much more! He will grant any and all requests you make and will actively engage your guests. I have nothing but incredible things to say about him. Just make sure that after your wedding you're ready to give him email address/phone number to all your guests- because they will want to hire him too!

I saw Gil at a bridal show performing. He was so charismatic and personable with the staff as well as the customers who were there. I decided to play one of the games, and I won a deal with Gil. I sent the information to my now husband and they set up the meeting. Imagine how I felt when I received a call from him and he told me that he just had a meeting with Gil, and that he was going to be our Dj. I knew my future husband was in good hands with Gil. Wedding day, he made our wedding feel like we all were at a concert. He worked very hard to make sure everyone was entertained. The music selection was perfect, and it appealed to every generation in the building. The dance floor stayed packed the whole day, This was truly a wonderful experience for us and we have Gil to thank for it.

What can I say that may not have already been said..... Well, I will say this: having a background in sales makes me a very difficult customer because I like to test the temperament of the person I am talking to in order to make sure I am not getting into something that doesn't benefit me. I sent an email blast to a few places, and Gil called me about 10 minutes later. We set up the meeting.... and he thought I was a Dj. It was the best opening conversation I had. From there, I called the wife, explained that I had a great meeting... she knew who he was from the Bridal Show..... I knew if he impressed her on one meet, then it was going to be on. Gil was very professional, prompt, and patient with us while we went through the process of choosing music, creating the timeline of events, and meeting at the venue to discuss setup locations and how things will transition from one place to the other. Up to Wedding day, Gil made sure that we had our check list done, and even made recommendations that he thought we would like, which we definitely took advantage of. On the Wedding day, Gil was at the venue about 2 hours ahead of schedule to set up his equipment. We had a good talk, and he said "Watch me work". Gil did exactly everything he said he would do, from the dancing with the guests, to singing along with the music, Gil provided unparalleled service and delivered a performance that was better than most concerts I have attended. Gil made our wedding day such an event, I wanna get married again, just so I can experience it again. Other than my wife in the dress, Gil made the wedding day everything we wanted it to be. Thank you Gil, for everything you have done. We are very grateful for what you did.

DJ Gil helped put on such a wonderful day. From Day 1 of his involvement, Gil has been invaluable to our wedding experience. He invests himself fully to make sure your day is what you want.

Our reception blended high tradition and superhero entertainment. It was the easiest thing in the world to partner up with Gil and come up with creative ideas and a fantastic A/V solution to cover our needs. He understood, and enjoyed, the nuance we were aiming for and hit it perfectly.

Gil also opened up the opportunity for us to take dance lessons. It was an extra side cost, but worth every penny and more. I went from having two left feet to being able to dance across the floor with my bride in just a few weeks. We learned how to partner dance and without having to study a routine. I'd have never thought it possible.

Thank you, Gil. You rode shotgun on the best day of our lives (so far).

Potential clients: if you want a lively, engaging DJ who will put his all into your day, throw your money at this man.
