The Dancing DJ
There are no words to describe what DJ Gil provided our wedding. I never seen so many people dance at a wedding in my life. He was engaging, energetic, and just had a blast in all he did. Made us feel comfortable the whole time!! Music was the hottest mixes of music but so tasteful for our wedding . The rating scales doesn't go high enough for DJ Gil. We want to have Gil do all our parties, small or big, his personalty just shines is so priceless when looking for a DJ. We truly feel that DJ title does him no justice, DJ Gil is an entertainer. Hands down best DJ ever . He DJs, he dances great but he entertains everyone. When you meet him you will have no hesitations on he will be the man to do your event.
Love Angela and Julius
Gil was an awesome DJ! He was organized and thorough with the pre-wedding preparations. His ability to read a crowd and pump up the music was impressive. His presence on the dance floor brought some much needed excitement in the beginning of the night. I highly recommend this DJ for weddings or any events. Thanks Gil for your participation on our special day.

The Dancing DJ is simply the best! I cannot thank Gil, The Dancing DJ enough for how wonderful he made our wedding. Gil provided music for prior to our ceremony, the entrances for our ceremony, as well as cocktail hour, dinner, and reception music. I never knew how closely I would be working with our DJ until a few weeks before the wedding date. About a week before our wedding Gil came to our venue to go over the layout and timeline of the eveneing with myself and our wedding coordinator. Putting my mind at rest is an understatement!
Gil is the epitome of prefessional, however that word is so "boring". Gil is anything but boring. Every Bride and Groom should have the experience that my husband and I had on our wedding day. We couldn't have been happier with his services to us. He is now the #1 recommended DJ at our venue, friends have asked for his card and information, others had wished they booked him for their past weddings, and he will DJ every event I plan in the future.
You want a wedding and a party that everyone will remember and be talking about? Gil is it. Simple as that. There is no party without The Dancing DJ!
Excellent interaction with quests. Made the event exceptional.
My husband and I used Gil's for our wedding back in August and could not have been more satisfied with the service received! He also made time for us the week before the wedding for a dance lesson that was a great success and a lot of fun! I would definitely recommend Gil to anyone looking for a reliable, fun, enthusiastic, and professional DJ.
I brought my seniors to Mt. Haven for the first time and The Dancing DJ was there.What a show. Gil or Gilberto was excellent . He interacts with the seniors. He sang , danced with us and taught new dances they do at weddings today. We enjoyed him so much I told them I wanted to book already for next year. Gil is very personablle and also professional. EXCELLENT!!!
THERE AREN'T ENOUGH OF STARS TO EXPRESS MY DELIGHT IN HAVING
DISCOVERED GIL KEOUGH. HE GETS EVERY BODY DANCING AND FEELING
HAPPY. WHETHER YOU ARE 6 OR 60 HE MAKES YOU FEEL HAPPY.
HE SHOWS YOU HOW TO DO DIFFERENT DANCES AND THE LINE DANCES.
ROCK AND ROLL, LATIN, SLOW DANCES, YOU NAME IT HE HAS IT.
HIS PERSONALITY IS CHARMING AND SINCERE.
This is the second time we have used Gil as a DJ for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah and he is AWESOME! If you want to make sure that your guests have a great time, may sure you hire Gil.
At my last affair, my photographer ended up hiring Gil for a bachelorette party and then the bride ended up using him as well.
He is great!
Best DJ ever!! High energy, Super accommodating and made sure EVERYONE had fun! The "Dancing DJ, GIL" had prior obligations, so he had DJ Matt step in. Gil couldn't resist the opportunity to dance, so he came shortly after my wedding started to dance the night away with all of us...they BOTH were great! I would never hire another DJ.
He was excellent! All my guests had a great time and were dancing the whole time.
(It might seem long, but please read everything. You will thank me later when you hire Gil to be your Dancing DJ!)
Gil was incredible!!! There aren't even enough outstanding words in the dictionary to explain how phenomenal he was. We absolutely love him and love his work!!!!!
From the start, Gil was on his game. He sent us his information in the mail and sent us emails a day after I contacted him. We had several contacts through phone and email and he met us close to our house for a meeting to see what we wanted and to explain what he offered. He was in constant contact with us up until the very day of the reception to clarify things, ask questions, make sure he knew what we wanted, and to even get proper pronunciations of the people’s names he was announcing. We had a destination wedding in Jamaica and a PA reception in Conshohocken. Gil knew all of this and worked with us every step of the way.
Gil contacted our caterer and the guy who we were renting our hall from well in advance to our reception date. He wanted to iron out details and ask any questions he had. That impressed me and I was very happy with that. It showed that he was reaching out to make sure all his bases were covered. Our caterer and Gil worked together at the reception so they were both aware of the timeline of each event that was taking place throughout the night. Which he consistently came over to my husband and I to give us a heads up when things were coming and to make sure we wanted it that way and that we were ready.
Gil showed up early to set up and his set up looked awesome. He was dressed so handsome and appropriate for the wedding reception. He played everything we asked him to, along with so much more. He also stuck to our 'do not play' list and did not play songs we did not want played. My husband's uncle brought a Jamaican flag with him and since we got married there, Gil hung it on his DJ table which was great & went well with our theme. He played some Bob Marley and island themed music, which we didn't ask him to do, but he did it on his own and it gave it a real nice touch and gave the reception a nice feel. It was great he listened to us and knew exactly what we wanted.
He was always making sure everything was going according to plan and got involved. He is not only a DJ; he is an incredible dancer and an entertainer. His title suits him well. He had the crowd going, dancing, smiling and having fun. He even had people dancing that do not like too, as well at my 87 year old aunt which was impressive. It was hard not to dance with Gil as the entertainer. He did a wonderful job and is so talented at what he does. HIRE HIM! You won’t regret it I promise.

Gil Keough has been our DJ twice, for our daughter's bat mitzvah and our son's bar mitzvah. He is very courteous, professional, and interested in ensuring that the guests of honor especially, but also all attending have a great time. Gil is a great dancer as well as DJ and announcer, so if you'd like your wedding or other party guests to learn a new dance or have more fun rocking out on the dance floor, he will definitely make it happen. Because he really listens to his customers and their requirements, I would recommend him for any event.
Our wedding was on September 17, 2011. I spoke with Gil about a week before. As Gil can attest to, I was a little hesitant about a dacing DJ. I have been to weddings where the DJ can make himself the center of attention. I explained this to Gil and he stated not to worry. I gave Gil the benefit of the doubt and am so glad I did. I had the best time. My family and friends stated they had a blast and I always felt that dancing at weddings is 90% of the fun. Gil actually did dance a bit but I didn't even know he was on the dance floor. At one point he played Man in the Mirror ( a favorite of mine) and he was going crazy behind the dj booth which I felt got my friends even more pumped. I wouldn't change anything about my wedding it was perfect. Thanks Gil we really appreciate it.
I have been in the entertainment nearly 40 [gasp] years and every once in a great while, something surprises me. I was attending a function in the Poconos July 2011 - a Spanish Theme - and wasn't expecting much.
What I got however was the single most high energy, charismatic, audience friendly, talented, unforgettable DJ I have ever seen. Once again, let me put this in perspective: nearly 40 years!!!! And am a professional entertainer!!!!
You know folks, it just doesn't get any better than Gil Keo. He sings, dances, chats, teaches [all bi-lingual] and carouses in the best possible way - to qualify as a family entertainer. And infectious? They wouldn't let him stop! Even when the gig was over [and I saw management indicate this], the dance floor was packed. Not just with screaming kids. As a matter of fact, there wasn't a person under the age of 21 in the room. From about 30-80 years old, even an old man with a cane and an elderly woman with a walker, was dancing to and with the dancing DJ.
He was out there with them, teaching and dancing like there was no tomorrow. You cannot ask for more than that from any entertainer. If you are looking for a DJ who is an ENTERTAINER, pleas call Gil Keo. You simply will not regret it.
I would recommend anyone use DJ Gil Keough for a wedding if you want to have your guests dancing through the night. The majority of our guests danced most of the night. Our guests ranged in age from early twenties to early seventies. He played great music and everyone had a good time. He made our wedding one of the best weddings we have attended in years. His personality definitely added to the party atmosphere and encouraged people to dance. He danced with guests to encourage them to dance. He also taught people the moves for a few songs. Our wedding was near Halloween and “Thriller” was played around the end of the evening. He taught everyone the moves to this song as the song was playing. Everyone seemed to enjoy doing the “Thriller” moves.
Gil’s friendliness and warmth also made him easy to work with. He asked us our goals for the reception and made us feel confident they would be achieved. He was easy to get in touch with and was open to different ideas. He was also on time, professional and open to taking our guests’ requests.
We are glad he was our DJ. He made our reception fun, memorable and one of the best days of our lives.
Gil was a blast to work with! Leading up to the wedding he would check in to see if we had any questions and to go over any specific requests we had for our play list - he was very accommodating and put us at ease.
He is a very energetic person and you can tell that he's genuinely excited to be involved in making the day memorable for everyone.
Some people didn't even finish dinner before they were on the dance floor, and once they were dancing they didn't stop! The music was great and Gil did a great job of keeping the energy up. He even turned the mic over to my husband so that he could sing along with his favorite Bryan Adams song!
Overall, Gil was great to work. We were so happy with the service he provided.
We are so happy we went with the "Dancing DJ"! He was full of energy and definitely kept the party going until the end. We loved his dance moves and how he taught us a new dance besides the everyday electric slide. He also had some amazing advice which helped us tremendously. He played all our songs on our playlist and even made us a keepsake cd of them. We have received numerous compliments on DJ Gil from our guests. We definitely recommend him for anyone's event! Thank you again for a wonderful night!!!
Attention future Brides & Grooms: You can finally stop searching for a DJ! Gil Keough is the end all and be all of DJ's and MC's! Let me just tell you Gil went WAY above and beyond in delivering and making good on everything he said he would! He far exceeded our expectations!!! We were in need of a bilingual DJ for our reception and were a little nervous about doing all the introductions and announcements in both English and Spanish for fear of it becoming drawn out. Also, we wanted to have a wide variety of both Latin and American music. Gil did an absolutely amazing job literally from start to finish! He started our reception by getting all of our family and friends very excited and "hyped" up with a very high energy level and this same excitement and involvement lasted the ENTIRE night! The introductions were alot of fun. I have no idea what he said for the Spanish version; however, everyone was smiling and laughing. The music was incredible! We are STILL getting compliments. Our dance floor was always filled even with people I never expected would participate. Gil is such a graceful and talented dancer. The mothers thoroughly enjoyed dancing with Gil especially to the Latin music. Gil was able to even get the grooms Father to do a Michael Jackson dance. We can't wait to see our reception video! We are looking forward to another party with Gil hopefully soon ;))
GIL, Thanks for all of your guidance with the planning, easing my worries and for all of your sincere compliments and well wishes for our life together.
Gil was so amazing! There wasn't one boring moment on the dance floor with him. Everyone raved "best wedding ever." It wouldn't have been possible without an excellent DJ. His experience and professionalism did not go unnoticed and I would absolutely recommend him to everyone. He also DJ'd my bachlorette party, which was fantastic! Gil - thank you so much for making our day, the perfect day :)
We loved DJ Gil, and so did our guests! The music was perfect and kept the dance floor full all evening. Everyone loved it when he got out on the floor and danced, too. After the wedding, many guests told us how great the DJ was, and how much fun the reception was. Just the other day, my sister checked on DJ Gil's name so she could pass it along to another bride-to-be. You cannot go wrong with the Dancing DJ, Gil Keough!
All I can say about Gil is that he is AWESOME! If you want a DJ that is going to get people out of their seats and dancing - he is the man. Gil dj'd our wedding and everyone kept asking "who is that dj" "where did you find him"? everyone loved him because he doesn't just sit behind the turn table, he actually gets out there on the dance floor with you. and with his fantastic personality and skills, he gave us an event we will remember forever. i will never use any other dj ever in my life, nor will my family or friends if i have something to say about. he is that special to us. you will not regret hiring the dancing dj. thanks again for making our day so special, amy and i love ya!
Gil made our wedding reception a blast with a great playlist, attitude and dance moves without trying to be the the center of attention. He knew the exact times to step in and show off his moves, and when to let us do our thing and play the music. He had a great enthusiasm for his work which was contagious throughout the night.
He was always responsive throughout the booking process and flexible with some last minute playlist changes. I would most definitely recommend booking him for your next event. A DJ can make or break a party, and he most definitely made ours the best night of our lives and many guests said it was the best and most fun reception they've ever been to!
Gil is gorgeous, personable, funny, a great dancer, and has a huge amount of energy. He turns on an entire group of people, has old people and young people on the dance floor. He is very very knowledgeable about organizing wedding receptions, and gives alot of time in conversation to help the bride and groom with their most important day. I can say, without reservation, that Gil made this day the HAPPIEST day of my life. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a guarantee of an extraordinary day. My friends and family will never forget him! Gil, you made our very special day so much fun. Many people said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Wishing you the most success Aggie and Felix
Gil was a pleasure to work with. His dancers kept the kids at the Bar Mitzvah reception up and entertained the entire time.
