As the mother of the bride yo can imagine how many things i had on my mind. The one thing i did not have to worry about was the music and announcements . He is a fabulous Master of ceremonies. I knew Gil would be on point and he was. From the very beginning of the process to the very end. He knows what he is doing and he he does it well. The music was fun, appropriate and motivating as was he. Our dance floor was packed from the moment the reception started to the very end. He plays music that appeals to all ages and really knows how to make your special day worry free and fun. I wish i could do it again. Thank you so much Gil, The Danicng DJ!!!!!

Let me put it simply: DJ Gil was by far the GREATEST DJ any of us have ever known! He absolutely killed it and exceeded every expectation my wife and I had for a wedding DJ—in music selection, general MCing, and, of course, the dancing! The thoroughness and perfection of Gil's Thriller dance will forever live in our family's lore.

Not only did Gil bring a wealth of energy, professionalism, and style to the event, but he was also a pleasure to work with. His love and passion for performing—and his endless desire to see people having a good time—translated into a truly remarkable performance. And he is now a veritable super star amongst our friends and family. I cannot even count the number of people who sung his praises at the wedding...and are STILL singing his praises to this day. I am not one to shell out hollow praise, so believe me when I tell you that I am not exaggerating here. My wife and I have had the opportunity to catch up with many friends since the wedding, and without fail, EVERY conversation about the reception at some point leads to a discussion of how absolutely amazing Gil was as a DJ. In fact, here's a verbatim text one of my groomsmen sent just the other day:

"Dude, I was in the O.R. today when Gangster's Paradise came on and all I could think about was DJ Gil. That guy was amazing!!!!"

That's been the basic gist of everyone's praise. So, it is with much sincerity that my wife and I heartily recommend DJ Gil for whatever event you have planned. He made our night truly unforgettable, and our reception would not have been half of what it was without him. DJ Gil sets the bar to which every DJ should aspire, and it won't be forgotten.

Gil was amazing!! He went above and beyond not only helping keep the timing of the reception, but keeping everyone on the dance floor so long, many forgot their shuttle back to the hotel!! Gil knew how to keep the crowd on the dance floor all night long, even people who haven't danced since the 80's... I had the time of my life and I have no doubt that it's because DJ Gil is an amazing entertainer.

When we first met Gil for our consultation, he mentioned that a DJ is one of the critical investment decisions that can make or break your wedding: nothing could be more true, and Gil absolutely made our wedding reception. He has a fun, outgoing personality, and places the bride and groom's wishes first. He believes in taking requests to accommodate your guests as well. His pricing is more than reasonable (he amplified our harpist for the ceremony, and provided gorgeous uplighting and DJ services for our reception). Sound quality was great for everything, he verified the order of events and bridal party name pronunciations, and accommodates special requests you may have (in our case, dances for my grandparents). The flow of the music energy went seamlessly all night, not to mention he can sing and dance with the best of them, which means no worries about getting guests up and partying. Our guests raved about him and what a fun reception we had. My husband and I literally never stopped dancing for our entire reception after dinner, and the memories we have are priceless.

My husband, my father-in-law, and many of their family friends had careers as DJs on Long Island at one time, so when it came time to hire a DJ for my wedding I was super worried. Hiring The Dancing DJ was a no-brainer! I had been to a wedding he DJ'd at a few years ago and remembered how much fun everyone had. He knows the right songs to keep the crowd entertained, includes any special music you ask for, and even dances with you and your guests! My mom is widowed and when I looked over and saw that she had a dancing partner, I was thrilled. The grin on her face was priceless. My husband and I got compliment after compliment on how great our DJ was. If you want your event to be fun and memorable, you'll hire The Dancing DJ!

Looking for a DJ that can really get people dippin' and dancin'? Look no further. The crowd at my wedding was a solid mix of people from the West Indies and New England. Gil was able to read the flow and mix two completely different musical styles together. What happened next was awesome; dance moves were shared, good times were had and the people were blended and mixed as well as the music was. In addition, Gil has the experience to handle, help, and boost your confidence and spirit at every step of the wedding process. Seriously, we couldn't have been happier and our guests couldn't have been happier.

Thank you Dancing DJ

The event we contracted Gil for was a Relay for Life event. This event is to help raise money for cancer research and to aid those suffering with the dreaded disease. Gil was Fantastic!! He not only performed the entire 12 hours he was contracting for but also helped with other activities going on while performing his own responsibilities. Gil has the utmost professionalism with very high energy. He can get the most stubborn, I don't dance, person to get upon the dance floor and shake their booty. He is great with handling last minute changes and the 2 man crew he brought with him was there to help at a moments notice. His collection of music would satisfy any age and is not the typical wedding music type arrangement. You can tell him what kind of music you want to hear and that's what he'll play. He had to fill 12 hours with music and never once repeated a song. Well except for the annoying song activity where he had to play an annoying song until $250 was raised. He even made that fun.
I would recommend Gil for any type of DJing. He knows how to keep the party going and is very high energy. Thank you Gil for all you have done for us and I look forward to next year.
