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.

This was the email I sent to Gil right after my wedding:
"I don't even know where to begin, but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was just blown away by your work on Sunday. I knew it was going to be good...I told everyone how awesome you were going to be, but I could not have predicted how epic that reception was. I'm sure that all of your receptions are like that because of how talented you are, but I want you to know that you went above and beyond because my family is not easy! I have never seen my parents up and dancing for that long. They always dance for a few songs, but I did not expect them to be out on the floor the entire time. That's huge!!! I had such an incredible time dancing all night, and I know everyone else did too! There were so many people asking me where we found you and commenting on what a great job you did. I'm sure you get that all the time, but I can't tell you enough! You're just amazing! THANK YOU! Thank you thank you."

Gil is just incredible. If you want to rest assured that your night is going to be perfect, contact the Dancing DJ!!!!

Gil was a rockin' DJ and helped make our wedding day extra special. What makes Gill such a unique DJ is his approach to the whole event. First he takes the time to get to know his clients, what their interests are, what makes them tick etc. and then he thinks long and hard about how he can tailor his contribution to make it extra special for the bride and groom. Gill goes far beyond the call of duty for his clients. For example I am Scottish and my wife is American. As I was getting married in a kilt, my national dress, and many of my guests were too, Gill also turned up to our wedding in full highland dress, looking amazing and even gifting me a Sgian Dubh (traditional dagger) to wear on my wedding day. (I've even heard of Gill dressing up as Darth Vadar to give one Star Wars fanatical bride a imperial guard of honour - it's maybe not to everyone's tastes but it just proves how far Gill will go to make your day personal and unforgettable.)
As the Dancing DJ, Gill has a hands on approach to getting your guests up and dancing. As the name suggests he gets out there on the dance floor and encourages all to get on up and have a good time.
If you want your guests to have a good time hire this guy!!! Last thing to mention but certainly not least is that Gill is a warm and friendly big fella and will always greet you with a smile.
Thanks for making our day unforgettable Gill.

My husband and I were looking for someone who would be extremely upbeat, life of the party, and who knows how to get the party started! If you are looking for the same things, you need to hire the Dancing DJ! Not only did he get everyone on their feet but he truly worked up a sweat during our reception because he was dancing too! For months after the wedding, all my guests were raving about him and how he made our wedding so unique. Not to mention he is super flexible and will do whatever you say - last minute before I walked down the aisle, I asked him if he could switch the song that was going to be played while I walked down the aisle and he totally knew what I meant and switched it for me - talk about professional! Not only did he throw a crazy party, but he also played a couple of songs for the older folks. If you want to have an unforgettable wedding, DJ Gil will go above & beyond!
P.S - I'm a musician myself and I wouldn't say these things unless they were true!
P.P.S - He is bilingual, and my in-laws are Spanish so he catered to both sides of the family!

DJ Gil was a blast at our wedding. He knew exactly what to do to pump up the party and even showed some of his moves on the dance floor!( with our permission). We made a few last minutes changes and he was very accommodating and never told us "no". He was great and a few of my guests are already asking me for his contact information to DJ for their parties!

I am the mother of the bride writing this review. I told Gil when I met him that I don't give out 5 ratings very easily. But I am giving Gil a 5. I was reluctant to hire a dancing DJ because all the pictures I saw of him on his website, he's in the pictures! This led me to believe that he would be a little "to much" and take all the attention. I was completely wrong. He knows how much he needs to do to keep the party going and then he backs off. Our guest all liked him and thought he was a lot of fun and I agree with them. I did like the fact that the reviews I saw all said he was fun. Those reviews are all correct. He is not only fun but friendly and professional. Our guest danced all night. They were an eager young crowd itching to dance but there were others that told me not to be offended if they didn't dance because "they don't dance" at weddings. Well they were all dancing. Gil also did the music for the ceremony and came through with all the songs we wanted and played them timely during the ceremony. We needed the processional song "looped" and he made that happened. Thanks Gil. You were a joy to work with and deserve the 5.

We were completely blown away by DJ Gil. We selected Gil because he came highly recommended to us by friends, and it was easy to see why. Gil ran the show from beginning to end. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. People of all ages from our 5 year-old flower girl to my 85 year-old grandfather danced the night away. All of our guests told us this was the best DJ they had ever experienced and I'm certain Gil ran out of business cards that night. We had some unexpected changes to our wedding, but Gil was able to quickly adapt so that our guests didn't notice any issues. He was fun, charming, witty and professional. He got everyone involved from the beginning and was even on the dance floor with us most the night. I would highly recommend Gil, without hesitation, to anyone looking for a sure way to have the best night of their lives. It's cliche to say your wedding day is the best day of your life, but in this case, it truly was, and we will remember Gil for the rest of our lives.

A guest at our wedding summed it up when he said " here is someone who enjoys what he does." I think that captures DJ Gil perfectly. There are plenty of Djs out there, but only someone like Gil got everything one could wish to have in a DJ, energetic, fun, experienced, well equipped with gadgets, great social skills, gets everyone on the dance floor, can get down on the dance floor and show them how it's done, works with people's budget, and simply puts the bride and groom first. A good DJ makes or breaks a wedding. I am so glad we got to enjoy his excellent DJ'ing skills at our wedding. It made our big day an event we will never forget. In fact, we have a few friends who loved him so much they're also using him for their weddings too! I absolutely recommend DJ Gil to any bride who wants the dance floor to be jam packed all nigh long!!

DJ "Big Love" Gil was amazing! From the very first time I met him until the reception, he had this high level of energy that is incomparable. We walked through each portion of the reception to ensure everything was clear, which was great because he brought up things I did not even think of yet. Since he has been in the business for so long, he was able to recommend other vendors for photography, videography, etc. Also, the communication with Big Love was very good - he returned calls/emails within 24 hrs. At the reception, he really did keep everyone on their feet the whole time! I received sooo many compliments on how fun the reception was and how they love the Dancing DJ. Thanks, Big Love, for making the reception a blast!
