Joel was amazing!!! He made the music choice process so easy! All my guests have told me how awesome our DJ was and how much they enjoyed the music!! There wasn't a single person at my wedding who didn't hit the dance floor! Granted our families are quite chaotic, but even the grandparents were getting down! I couldn't have asked for a better DJ and HIGHLY recommend Joel!!!!
We were fortunate to work with DJ Erik at Greenbelt for our wedding on September 1. Even though we booked months and months in advance, we were just barely able to secure a DJ for our date. You have been warned: their availability seems to fill up quick, but I can see why. Erik was so excited about our playlist and his work. He ensured that the music sounded great all evening. I highly recommend Erik and Greenbelt DJ for the hard work and energy they added to our wedding.
Working with Anthony from Greenbelt DJ Productions was such a pleasure! He was professional, friendly, and a great DJ. We wanted the music at our wedding to be a reflection of our tastes but we also wanted to please the crowd and keep people dancing, and Anthony was great at finding the perfect balance. Between Anthony's suggestions and picks and the songs we selected through Greenbelt DJ Production's online music catalogue/planning site we had great music from the beginning of the ceremony to the end of the reception and heard compliments about the music all night. The mix at dinner really reflected our taste and after dinner the dance floor was never empty! Anthony had our guests dancing their hearts out and those who weren't dancing had a great time watching.
We had Anthony provide the ceremony music as well as the reception music and he did a great job of timing the songs to each section of the processional. We had specific songs we wanted played for the processional and Anthony was able to quickly get all of the songs we needed.
Anthony also handled the role of MC perfectly. His announcements were clear and helpful in letting guests know what was going on and where they needed to be but never over the top or distracting in any way. It was great to know that Anthony was keeping the night on schedule so I didn't have to worry about it! He also provided a wireless mic for toasts which allowed everyone to hear the speeches clearly.
I was really impressed with the professionalism of Greenbelt DJ Productions. When we booked them it was great to know we were getting the whole package-- the great sound equipment, lighting, wireless mic for the toasts, and all the planning and timeline coordination--included in the price. I knew we were in good hands from the initial meeting all the way through the wedding. And while Anthony is an expert at what he does and I'm sure he could DJ a wedding with little to no help from clients, he made sure to really listen and give us a wedding that felt like us. We really appreciated that!
Anthony responded very quickly to all emails and phone calls and was always professional, helpful, and friendly. He made sure to give us plenty of meeting and planning time and was 100% prepared for our event. Music is so important in setting the mood at events and Anthony did a great job! I definitely recommend Anthony and Greenbelt DJ Productions.
It was three hours into the reception and people were still dancing. Hard. Although it was close to midnight (and everyone should have been burned out), you couldn't get our guests to sit down.
We booked Greenbelt DJs for our wedding and couldn't be happier with our decision. Anthony was our DJ. We began interacting with him months before the wedding. We exchanged emails to coordinate the time and date for the ceremony, but for the details, we set up a Facetime conference since both my wife and I were living out of state. I was nervous, not sitting down with our DJ face to face. I quickly learned, however, that I needn't be.
During the conference call, we discussed the schedule for the reception and music preferences. Of course, this was our first time planning a wedding. Consequently, we had a bunch of questions. Anthony immediately showed that he was a professional and had loads of wedding experience as he calmly offered us advice based on what he's seen. He wasn't pushy and made it clear that this was our reception, but when we asked for recommendations, he gave them.
Choosing music was fun. Anthony went through a number of genres and songs in order to figure out what kinds of tracks we would like played; his "left and right limit," if you will. We gave him a couple of "must plays," but chose to rely on his expertise when it came to the majority of the evening. We didn't want to give him so many "must play" songs that he wasn't able to judge what to play based on what he saw throughout the night.
We weren't disappointed at all. Anthony chose the perfect music to play at the perfect time. He began with some older dance classics for the elder generations at the wedding and very carefully transitioned into some more modern music. He blended together several different genres as we had people from across the country there. The slower songs were mixed well into the faster songs. I heard many people saying, "this is the best wedding ever!" as the evening came to a close. I have no doubt that it was because of the mood and energy that Anthony created with the music he chose to play. Of course, as the groom, I was free to request whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. He even found and played some of our more obscure song choices.
When you're preparing for a wedding, the details you have to plan add up. Flowers, the ceremony, colors, photography, the menu, the schedule, the rehearsal dinner, welcome bags, the cake, the groom's cake, etc. A good DJ makes things easier by helping you with some of these details easing your mind that the "party" part of the evening will be handled by en expert with lots of experience. A bad DJ will make you worry about song choices and how he will handle the role of MC. On a scale of horrible to excellent, Greenbelt DJs was amazing.
All of our guests were crazy about the music that Erik played at our reception at the Driskill Hotel. When we met with him to talk about our songs, he loved the initial list we had come up with using their online planning service and said it would be great to just work from that. And that he did! He played a great mix of so many different types of music that was beyond perfect for our crowd. He was such an outgoing and upbeat person that it was a joy and a pleasure to be around him. I would recommend him 100% to anyone needed a DJ, even if not for a wedding!
My husband and I are so glad we chose Greenbelt DJ for our wedding. It was absolutely amazing, and it was one less thing we had to worry about. He was very responsible and responsive to any of our inquiries. He made our dance floor one big party. It was everything we envisioned it to be, and every single song we requested was played. Highly recommended!!
We used Joel Giorgio for our wedding and couldn't be more happy with our decision. We had a traditional Indian wedding, and Joel went out of his way to learn all the music and mix it in a way that had the Indians and Non-Indians alike dancing like crazy all night. He was fabulous, and we're still receiving lots of compliments on our DJ.
We had Anthony as the DJ for our wedding, and it was such a fun night! First, he is very professional and made planning a breeze. I especially loved Greenbelt's online planning portal. It made picking songs quick and easy! It also made me feel comfortable knowing that they are very organized and were going to play the right song at the right time. They had such a variety of music to choose from, and I even got a lot of Spanish music selected for my family. Overall, we all had a great time dancing.. we even got older family members on the dance floor who never dance!
Thank you Anthony! It was perfect!
Speaking from past experience (friends' weddings), hiring a bad DJ can ruin a wedding and leave a lasting impression. This was definitely NOT the case with our wedding because we hired Greenbelt DJ. Hiring Anthony was one of the smartest decisions I made during my planning process. Having a degree in Music, I can be a bit hard to please, but Anthony really knows his stuff. He is a professional DJ. Not someone who just pushes "next" until the night is over. He really listened to our likes and dislikes and the flow was perfect. He kept people dancing the whole night and only spoke during key times (again - I've been to weddings where that was NOT the case. A DJ shouldn't love the sound of their own voice more than the music) and when he did it was nothing but professional and fun. And the added bonus of the AMAZING picture he took during the ceremony was just icing on the cake. I keep getting compliments on it!
Thank you thank you thank you!
Joel at Greenbelt was great! He even introduced me to some new music that I love. He does well at reading a crowd and getting folks out on the dance floor. Highly recommended.
Joel, just reliving some of Jenna and Joey's wedding as I watch some video my brother in law shot. I was reminded how effortlessly and masterfully you performed your duties as DJ. But might I add, that you also could be called, Master of Ceremonies and Wedding Coordinator. I didn't get a chance to talk to you at the wedding but wanted you to know that we have exclaimed to many, what a fabulous contribution you were to J&J's wedding and it wouldn't have gone so smoothly orchestrated without you! From the serene musical beginning as people arrived, to the introductions throughout, and the perfectly timed selection of traditional, funny, and funky music ...everything was the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this special day in our family better than we could have imagined!
There are currently 3 different DJ's that work at Greenbelt. We worked with Joel, the owner. I had originally found him while visiting a potential wedding venue's open house. We noticed that we couldn't help but dance a little to every song he played. His prices are awesome (I added an extra hour to his standard contract). A great DJ is so important to a wedding because he's not just keeping the party going during the reception, he's setting the mood during dinner, and making sure your walk down the aisle goes flawlessly. I had so many compliments about the music at the wedding, and the dance floor was FULL the ENTIRE night with everyone from 2 to 70 years old.
Zero complaints. Not only zero complaints, but the exact opposite-- rave reviews. He was excellent. He was easily accessible from the day we hired him. He made sure we were as involved with picking music as we wanted to be. He let us specifically pick songs we wanted played, songs we didn't want played. He has thousands and thousands of songs. There was ONE song he didn't have-- and he got it for us.
We got lots of compliments on the music and DJ from our wedding guests. Which says it all.
Joel's years of experience was very obvious. He's prompt, he's professional, he's nice, he's fun, he knows his craft.
If we could go back in time and make changes to our wedding, would we hire Joel again? Without a doubt.
Details of our wedding Joel helped with: ceremony music, cocktail hour music, dinner music, DJed the reception.
Joel is awesome! Going into our meeting I really had no idea what to pick for music. The only songs we knew we wanted were our first dance, father daughter, and mother son dance. Joel had tons of suggestions and was a great help. He made the process so easy. He is extremely professional and so down to earth, which I loved! We put full trust in him to come up with our play list and he did a superb job. Thanks Joel! You definitely made our night memorable. Highly recommended
anthony was the DJ for our wedding last weekend, and was SOOOOOO awesome! he was recommended specifically to us by the lovely ladies of our venue (the winfield inn -- also amazing!), and did not disappoint. greenbelt's prices are reasonable, and they are able to accommodate many other things besides DJ'ing -- anthony also provided gorgeous red uplights for our reception, and allowed us to use his sound system for our minister and readers during the ceremony. . . and on the whole, he's really just an amazing master of ceremonies who led us smoothly through the flow of the evening!
anthony was very responsive, helpful and communicative during the process leading up to the wedding, and when we finally met him in person to go over our plans for the evening, we felt so comfortable and relieved to know that he truly understood what we wanted.
and then when it all came to life during the reception, it was fantastic. . . as one wedding guest put it, "that play list at the reception rocked!!!" -- we seriously had people on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG -- including my 77-year-old father! -- and several people told us the next day how they were sore from dancing so much! ha! it was SO much fun, we can't say enough great things about anthony. his interpersonal style is lovely -- easy-going and fun -- and he does a fantastic job at making a party a FUN PARTY!! gotta love greenbelt.
Where do I even begin? Anthony was so amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our wedding. My husband and I had high expectations to begin with, because we are HUGE music lovers, and my parents were both radio personalities/DJs as well. Look no further than Greenbelt DJs for an amazing wedding reception. We had Anthony do the reception, but he also did the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour as well. I was very specific about the music for the ceremony, as well as our wedding party entrance and dances, and Anthony took care of everything with no problems! I danced with my brother in memory of my dad at the reception, and I knew I wanted to do a slow dance into dance medley with him, since we are both pretty goofy. Anthony mixed all the songs I gave him together and the dance was AWESOME. No one expected us to do it but everyone loved it and our guests are still raving about the dance with my brother. It wouldn not even have happened if Anthony had not put everything together for us. He went above and beyond great service and my husband and I cannot thank him enough for the wonderful evening he gave us! There is no reason NOT to go with Greenbelt DJs, they know what they are doing!
Dj Anthony is such a sweet guy! He really knew how to keep the party going. He was great at listening to our desires and then including them for our reception. He's very knowledgable and had great suggestions on songs for introductions and last dance. I really do not think our big night would have been as magical without him. He even got my groom's grandma out on the floor!
Anthony was incredible!!! From the beginning of our correspondence all the way through the planning process he made it a really smooth easy thing to handle. He had great musical suggestions and we had a lot of unconventional music we wanted included and he was so great throughout the entire process.
We had an unexpected bout of rain on the outdoor dance floor and Anthony played through the rain with only a tarp being held up over his equipment, not a soul left the dance floor! He kept the music jamming and our guests were soaking wet and singing and dancing... truly a moment we will never forget!
We hired Joel for our September wedding. He was very flexible and helpful throughout the entire process. We were worried about the logistics of meeting with him since we live in Arlington, but he was understanding of the situation, and we actually used Skype to outline the ceremony. His music recommendations were perfect. After we worked everything out, he gave us a detailed outline. On the day of the ceremony everything went just the way we discussed, including our non-traditional introduction. Joel is truly a professional and you can tell he really enjoys what his work. I would definitely hire again.
Joel was the DJ for our wedding and he did a PHENOMENAL job! My husband and I were so very impressed and blown away! He was extremely professional and experienced and he instantly made us feel at ease from our very first meeting. We really appreciated knowing that no matter what, he would be our DJ for the day and that no other employee that we hadn't met would be showing up instead to DJ. He was constantly in contact with us through the planning and was so organized which saved us a lot of stress. Since he is so experienced, he was even able to make amazing suggestions to our timeline that made the biggest difference in how the night flowed together. He even provides a list of thousands of songs to help with planning so we didn't have to try to come to think of all the songs on our own. He guaranteed that he would have everyone on the dance floor all night and he did just that with flying colors. Every single one of our friends, family members, bridal party, etc. were on the dance floor having a blast the whole entire night! The way he mixes songs is out of this world and every one we spoke said it was by far the best and most fun wedding they had ever been too. People are still talking about it!!!! To top it all off, he includes a complementary recording of the ceremony, toasts, and ever song played at your wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend Joel for any wedding or event. There's no doubt in my mind that anyone who hires him will be pleased.
