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 a pleasure working with DJ Anthony. He was organized, professional, and had the guests dancing all night. We also used uplighting which added a great ambiance for the dinner portion of the evening. Thank you for help making a big day wonderful!
We are 100% satisfied with our experience with Greenbelt DJ Productions, and specifically, DJ Erik. Our initial inquiry was met with a quick, professional, informative response from Joel, the owner. DJ Erik himself was very professional, personable (we shared a lot of similar interests, which helped us "click"), and experienced. He brought backups of EVERYTHING, and while he didn't need any of his backups, that level of preparedness gave us piece of mind and let us worry about the hundred other things that were going on. We had our guests suggest a song when they RSVP'd, and DJ Erik was able to play most, if not all, of them throughout the night. Our dance floor was busy the entire evening, and everyone had a blast and tells us how much they enjoyed our DJ. Hire him; you won't regret it.
I really liked Anthony as my DJ. I was not interested in somebody who would draw all the attention to himself and be a distraction. He was exactly what I wanted. Humble, confident, competent, and fun. I looked over during the wedding and saw him happily singing the songs to himself while he bopped up and down. Not for show, but because he genuinely enjoys his job. Their website states that the wedding day should be about the bride, and not the DJ. That attracted me to check out their services, and boy did they deliver on this. There was no hidden insecurity that drove him to be the center in order to make himself feel better. No, just having fun, doing his job, and being reliable and able to follow through on specific requests. He did a great job of doing all the announcements without being obnoxious. He was a wonderful part of the flow without sticking out.
Joel was our DJ and we can’t get over how great it was working with him throughout the entire wedding planning process. He responded timely to all questions and emails, and even from the first conversation we could tell that he truly loves what he does. Joel kept the party going throughout our wedding reception. I was impressed with how Joel could read the crowd and always knew the right song to put on next. I’ve never danced so much in my life, and my husband and I truly had the best night of our life. We received so many compliments on how great our DJ was, and we couldn’t have agreed more! Thank you Joel for such an amazing wedding experience!
Erik was the DJ for our wedding this last May, and we would very highly recommend him to anyone!!! Throughout the whole process he was very professional, yet still a guy that you feel like you could have a beer with. Also, the owner Joel was the quickest responding vendor that I worked with, which made the contract process easy on my part. The website that Greenbelt has is super easy to use and I found that I had a list of our favorite dance songs built up in one evening. I was short on time and needed help with songs for cocktail hour, dinner, etc. and Erik just took the theme we wanted and ran with it and it was perfect! He came super prepared, and was very accommodating to EVERY special request that I came up with from start to finish. He took care of all the little details like dance floor lighting, outside speakers/mics, etc, and set it up perfectly without me having to give any input (I’m super picky, so that's saying something) When it came time for the dance, he kept the dance floor full all night long. I have had so many comments from our guests since then that it was the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to, and I think that’s in large part due to Erik. He really knows how to read the crowd, and played a perfect mix that made everyone happy, without having to resort to the YMCA to get people to dance… I spoke with a lot of companies before deciding on Greenbelt, and I am so incredibly happy they were a part of our wedding!!
Erik from Greenbelt DJ's kept the dance floor moving all night long for our Wedding. He had the timing down pat for all of the official items (aisle music, entrance, first dance etc) but he really showed off his skills when the dancing started. Matt and I had a few must have songs, and a few "No way" songs, but otherwise he had the freedom to work the crowd, take requests and do what he needed to do to keep the party going. Erik joked after that this might have been the first wedding he DJ'd where he played both LCD Sound System and Bone Thugs and Harmony.
Greenbelt has a great planning website for you to put in your requests and find songs, and they will download whatever you need, whether it is a different version of a song or a new song all together.
I highly recommend their services.
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
