This man will go ABOVE & BEYOND your DJ expectations. I found Greg by searching through the knot & reading everyone's reviews (probably the exact thing you are trying to figure out right now if you're readying this) Look no further! I decided to reach out based on the reviews I... Read More read and Greg was very prompt to respond. We started with a phone call & he emailed me out a packet of info about himself. Once we secured the date he gave us access to the most amazing/helpful/organized website I've ever seen pertaining to wedding music selection. Who honestly thinks about choosing a song to cut their cake to? To see everything laid out in front of you makes a daunting task look easy. For months we worked on our song selections, and about 4 months before our wedding Greg met us at our venue (4 hours away from his home) just to meet us and get a feel for the space. He obviously did not have to do this, but it was SO nice to meet him and know who we would be working with on the day of our wedding. But this wouldn't be the only time he did more than was asked of him. We had asked my little sister to marry us, who had no clue how to run a ceremony, so when we decided to have Greg play the music for that part of the wedding he offered to show up for the rehearsal & helped outline & suggest how to make everything flow. This took all of the stress off of us. On many occasions he offered to do anything he could to help me & was always available via email or phone call. I can not recommend him enough! I even had wedding guests offering to leave a review because he was just that accommodating. On the day of our wedding everything went more than smooth, in large part thanks to him. We can not thank Greg enough!!!

Thank You for an awesome reception. Everyone including my wife and I had an absolute blast at the reception. We loved how you kept people out there on the dance floor all night.

Greg was the absolute best. If you are looking for an affordable DJ that knows what he's doing, he's your man. He was so easy to work with and very understanding. He is the perfect "event coordinator". I did not hire a wedding coordinator or director because my church provided... Read More one at their location but I was in a bit of a panic because I needed someone who knew what they were doing at the reception. I'd never been married before, what did I know. I show up as a guest to weddings for the food and booze (and to support and love my friends!) so Greg was perfect. He lined everything out, made sure I was okay with it, and all I had to do was pick my music. He seriously made it so easy. Pick him, you will not be disappointed, I promise.

We LOVED Greg! He was well prepared for every meeting we had prior to the wedding and did a fantastic job on the wedding day! He was so wonderful to work with and he made it so easy for us to select the music we wanted played at the reception. Greg was always very calm and... Read More collected, even when I called the evening before the wedding with a song change. He greeted me with a glass of water at the reception, which was extremely appreciated. One of the most important aspects we loved about Greg is that he conformed his performance and level of participation in the reception to meet our preferences. We had a morning wedding and he did a great job of introducing the bridal party, the first dances, and the cake cutting. But he also did a wonderful job of sitting back and allowing us to enjoy the music and each other's company. Greg was amazing to work with and I would highly recommend him!

Good Value

Greg was definitely a great price compared to the other DJs we looked into and came highly recommended. He was very friendly and easy to work with - very accessible and enthusiastic. We met with him several times (over the phone and in person) over the course of our wedding... Read More planning so we expected our reception to be fun and flawless. Well, we definitely got what we paid for... Our "special songs" like our first dance were correct and we were very pleased with that. However, we gave a very detailed list of our "must plays" and "do not plays" so his job should have been pretty easy for that portion but, unfortunately, those requests were not really met during our reception. Only a few of our must-plays were actually played and many songs we didn't want to hear were played. Luckily none of our guests noticed this mistake but we certainly did which was disappointing and caused us unnecessary stress on our big day. He also came to our reception with an attitude towards us, our bridal party, and our families which was pretty surprising and embarrassing for us. His microphones kept cutting out during the toasts which was frustrating (to us and him) since he had so much equipment set up. All-in-all, Greg definitely enjoys a good time and likes to throw a party. Just don't give him a specific list of what you want played or you may be disappointed. He seemed to stick to the mix or list of songs he already had in mind and didn't bother paying attention to our wants despite how many times we met and discussed this. Nice guy, very passionate about his job, but the music was definitely the most disappointing part of our day.


Thanks you so much for making our wedding so special!
