I feel SO compelled to write this review because Gearbox Entertainment absolutely made our wedding so perfect. I didn't use The Knot for any other vendors besides Gearbox Entertainment, so I hope that other brides looking on The Knot and needin...
g a DJ will turn to Gearbox.
I have to start by saying that Ryan Meyers of Gearbox is patient, agreeable, friendly, and so easy to work with. We had issues with my wedding where we switched venues three months before the wedding, even though we had the other venue planned for almost nine months. Ryan worked with me from the very beginning with the old venue and was so flexible and understanding about our need to switch to the new venue. He routinely met with us at the old venue to help us with lighting, and when we switched venues so soon before the wedding, he met with us there as well to help us change our prior decisions to fit the new place.
We used Gearbox Entertainment for both lights and the DJ services. The lighting looked exceptional and so professional. The lighting was absolutely necessary for the food, cake, and outdoor areas, and I'm so grateful we used lighting services with Gearbox.
For DJ services, Daniel from Gearbox DJ'ed for us. He was incredible! My husband and I never wanted a band for our wedding because we have such a wide range in our taste of music - alt. rock, indie, grunge, dance, etc. My husband and I knew we would need a DJ who could play a range of our song choices while also filling the extra time with other music that would still fit our taste. My husband and I met telephonically with Ryan and Daniel and told Daniel our tastes in music, and Daniel completely delivered at the reception. My husband and I were delighted at the music and when some of our favorite songs came on without us requesting them or mentioning them in advance. Daniel was great with timing, and he honored our guests' musical requests as well. Our reception was so fun because of the music, and I've had multiple guests tell me that the music was their favorite that they've ever heard at a wedding.
Ryan knew we had a budget, and he completely worked with us to stay within our budget while helping us make sure that we were getting the most optimized services that we could get with our budget. His pricing was honest and affordable for us, and it was 100% worth everything we spent. Communication with him was quick and easy, and he was so responsive.
I would recommend Gearbox Entertainment 10/10 times, and I am so glad that I found these guys on The Knot.
