Gary was the absolute best. Don't hesitate to hire him. I wrote a review already and now my teenagers also wanted to say how great he was!

See all reviews

"Gary is an outstanding DJ , he made our wedding !!!! He felt out the crowd and played what was appropriate , at the appropriate volume . We met with him before and we told him at least 30 songs we wanted played he played them all . He kept the crowd up and dancing . In the middle of the wedding I asked can you play a Hora and within seconds it was on . He's was punctual , polite , and professional . I highly recommend him he has broad appeal , my daughter who is 24 loved him , and the older folks loved him too. I who listen to the top 10 on the radio everyday loved him too , in sum up he listens to you , and will custom make your music experience ."

"Gary was on point for our entire event!! We hired him to DJ our wedding and everyone was raving about him when they weren't busy on the dance floor. He seamlessly integrated our requests through out the night and picked up on our tastes to make the perfect additions of his own. We only had to tell him one time for all of the intros, announcements, names etc and he got it all right, did not miss a beat! His lighting also helped transform the space beautifully. I would absolutely reccomend him to anyone looking for DJ services."

 "Gary was professional, prompt, and made sure our guests had a fantastic time. The music was great and he had a very easy to use website which allowed us to put in our requests and order of events for the ceremony and reception. We would absolutely reccomend Gary to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding !"+

"Gary was just what we were hoping for in our wedding DJ. He got the crowd dancing, was a great MC and played our special requests. He met with us, at our convenience, before the wedding and made sure he knew all the details for us to have a great night. Gary was very professional and we can't recommend him enough"

Scott & Sarah


 
Hi Gary,

Just wanted to say thank you again for being a part of our special night. You were great!!! You kept the party going all night! Our guests were raving about you the night of the wedding and even into the next day. Thank you for all you did to accommodate all our requests. We will most definitely recommend you to anyone and everyone in the future.
Thank you soo much for playing the Game of Thrones song! Darren was thrilled  :)

Best wishes,
 
Melissa and Darren

 

Dear DJ Gary Giarretta,

Gene and I couldn't thank you enough for the amazing job you have done for our wedding. You captured the emotions we wanted to express through your music. All our guests had a wonderful time and you kept us all dancing. Also, we appreciate you hosting at the wedding, collaborating with us, and listening to what we wanted to hear on our wedding. It was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to doing more business with you.

 

Regards,

Janette & Gene


 

"I had the utmost honor of having Gary DJ my wedding on November 15, 2014. His large playlist catered to all my friends and family. From Disco, country, R&B, house, pop, classic Rock, Filipino, Spanish/Latin and Polish polkas; DJ Gary had them all. He is very professional and knows how to get any crowd involved. For any future events that I may host, I wouldn't hire anyone but Gary.

On top of his professionalism and diverse playlist, Gary has excellent lighting displays and a 60inch LED TV which projected numerous pictures of my wife, friends and family. He even took time to scan and upload around 50 printed pictures and put them on an USB for me to keep. Gary accommodated all our guest and our needs and provided his service on such short notice.

If you need a DJ, Hire Gary! You will certainly not be disappointed one bit."

John Paul Z.


Gary was an awesome DJ at our wedding. Everything we wanted in a DJ. Played all the right music at the right times. Music he did not have, he found. He went with the flow of the night. Downloaded music on the spot to keep the energy going! I highly recommend him and would definitely use him again!"

Jeremy H.

 


Gary,

We just wanted to drop you a line to thank you again for doing such an awesome job at our wedding celebration! We have had such great feedback about you from our guests. It was a pleasure to work with someone who is as professional and personable as yourself. We will definitely recommend you to others and look forward to seeing you again at Angel's wedding in June!

All the best,

Maryann and Ron Moore

 


 

 

"Gary was the DJ for our wedding which was held at the Rosewood in Edison, NJ. All interaction with Gary was excellent. He is a down to earth and very responsive professional. Any questions or suggestions were only a call or e-mail away. Gary showed up on time to set up the equipment and everything went as planned. He played our requests and even kept us up-to-date on the score of the Devils game, which was much appreciated! Gary, if you see this, I hope you had as good of a time as we did! It was a blast and thank you again! To all reading this, I would definitely recommend Gary if you are looking for a professional that has been doing this for years, has all the right equipment, and is a genuine guy that will keep the beats going."

Ken J.


 

"Gary was very responsive to emails and phone calls from the beginning. Immediately upon meeting him, we decided we wanted to have him DJ our wedding. He is laid back and very accommodating. He played all of the songs that we requested and kept his schedule flexible for changes in any wedding plans. We will definitely recommend to friends/ family/ acquaintances who are looking for a DJ for their event. "

Derick


 

"Gary was a pleasure to work with from the beginning right through to the end. Very professional, and the kids loved him. Right down to adding extra lighting to make the party atmosphere perfect! Definately will call him for our next event"

Kim B.


 

"My husband and I got in touch with Gary through Thumbtack. From the beginning, Gary was polite, professional, honest and informative about his services. He was flexible and willing to meet with us before our ceremony to answer all of our questions. He was very careful to gather all of the information he needed to emcee our ceremony and reception. His website gave us a convenient way to request all of the songs on our wedding playlist beforehand, and he did a great job handling requests at the wedding, even those from the children present! Additionally, the weather was questionable the day before and the day of our outdoor ceremony, but Gary was flexible and well prepared to deal with any scenario we were likely to run across. Gary's services were amazing, and we would definitely recommend him to any of our friends and family in need of a DJ!"

Candice & Chris


 

"Gary did a fabulous job as the DJ for our wedding reception!  My fiancee said that her main goal for our wedding was for everyone to have a great time and to do a LOT of dancing at our reception, and we have to thank DJ Gary for helping to make that happen.  From our first meeting with Gary, he was professional, courteous and easy to work with.  He showed up early to get set up for our event, and was dressed to impress.  More importantly, he took the time to listen to our requests for music selection, and also did his homework with planning the flow of the reception, right down to correct pronunciation of all the names in the wedding party.  His equipment sounded great, and we had a full dance floor all night long.  We couldn't have asked for a better DJ.  Thanks again, Gary!"

 

- Mark and Casundra Amundson


Gary was incredible! He met with us multiple times prior to the wedding to finalize all details. On the day of the event he collaborated with my brother to allow him to do our announcements coming into the reception (including the music selections my brother made to accompany those announcements) and worked with the AV tech at our reception site to sync the appropriate music to a slide show during the father/bride and mother/groom dances. Throughout the night, I don't think there was a single minute when the dance floor was not full of guests having an absolute blast! -

 Thanks! Laura


 I used Gary for my wedding on 5/22/10. It was a 10:30 am start time. Gary was there early. He played music during the coctail hour, which was is a different room. It was not even an issue for him. He is a great MC. Gary had everything sorted out way ahead of time, so i had nothing to worry about. It was all timed perfectly. He also had ALL the music and handled guest requests on the spot. Gary was PERFECT! I would tell anyone to check him out. When my guests left, everyone said, and i quote "Great wedding, the food and the DJ were great". That says a lot. People complimented me, the groom, about the DJ. THANK YOU GARY!!!

Ed S.


Hi, Gary...

I did not see Dayna's note but have to tell you that we really
appreciate the great job you did with Dayna's party.  The DJ makes the
party-especially with teenagers.  You had the kids on the dance floor
and Dayna got a lot of compliments on the DJ.  I was nervous since I
had not had a direct recommendation about you; but we couldn't have had
a better one.  Thanks again and we will pass along recommendations if
you need them.

Gary,
Great job last week
Thanks Ed

Hi Gary,

Just wanted to drop a few lines to say that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
at Nicki's party -- you did a great job keeping everyone up and dancing!!
Nicki's friends loved the big screen and seeing themselves on it. Thank you
for locating and using that device.  I can't believe all the planning is
done and now the party has been and gone --- it goes very fast (in
comparison to all the details and planning that must take place to pull off
a party like that) -- but we were thankful everything worked out so great.
Nicki had a great time and her friends are still talking about it - it's one
of the best parties they've been at, they told her!  So, again, thank you
for your part in making it a fun night.  I will definitely call upon you if
the occasion arises where we need a great DJ!  It was very good meeting you.
Take care and enjoy the rest of the summer.

DJ Gary G made our son's wedding a fun fun time for our family and friends.
The bride and groom didn't give him much help on song choices, and simply asked that the guests sing and dance all night. And we did! So many of our guests said that it was the best wedding they had been to, because the music was great and we did not sit down all night. There was a great mix of oldies and contemporary music, and my only regret is it ended all too soon!The Slovaks family members loved it too.
Great value, professional DJ

Sincerely,

Gary was just great!! We were planning a wedding in New Jersey from across the country and he worked with us to the point of calling us over skype so we can have a face to face meeting to discuss the music. He catered to our every whim and helped us choose music appropriate for the different "events" that occur during a wedding (bouquet toss, garter toss, etc...). He set up his equipment during our ceremony so we would have a PA system and quickly moved the equipment to the dance floor for cocktail hour and the rest of the evening. He was great fun to work with and we really appreciated his ability to keep the party going late into the night.

 Thanks Gary! -Marco and Katie-


 

Hi Gary. Sorry it has taken me so long to write to you. Thank you very much for making my New Year's Eve party so much fun. Everyone had a great time.

Fondly,

Gary,

Mike and I just wanted to thank you again so much for yesterday. Everyone keeps telling us how much fun they had dancing at the wedding and what a great mix of music it was! It was so wonderful to have everyone on the dance floor and dancing. We appreciate so much that you played everything we had requested and everyone kept telling us how awesome the songs were. You were absolutely wonderful and especially during dinner playing such a different mix of songs for everyone in the room. We all went back to the hotel and our friends and families could not stop raving about how much they loved all of the songs and dancing. It made the wedding complete! Thank you so, so much for everything yesterday. It was such a perfect day and we were so happy to have you be such a huge part of it! We will definitely be recommending you to everyone we know! Thank you so much again, you are so wonderful!!

 Thanks so much for doing an amazing job at the HHS Homecoming dance last night.

It was obvious that everyone had a great time - they were all out there dancing for 3 hours straight!!!

 -Ellen


"Gary was a pleasure to work with. To be honest, I had never heard him 'live' and I was just looking for someone to take the helm and play some music for my daughter's Sweet 16 without charging an arm and a leg. After googling DJ's in my area, he came to the top of the search engine and had a hand ful of good reviews so I took a leap of faith. It was definately worth the risk!

He came completely prepared with lighting and for a large banquet hall and addressed every request thrown at him throughout the night, The kids all had a blast and are posing statuses and pics from the event all over Facebook, so I consider it a huge success! The kids never stopped dancing!!!!

I would never hesitate having him do an event again and will recommend him to everyone that asks :)"
Lynn F

Gary-

Everyone raved about your work. Thanks. It was a lucky break for us to find you. You were great! Thanks so much!

Paula


 

Hi Gary,

Thanks you for your wonderful service. Even yesterday, I had a friend that was at the party tell me how impressed she was with the way you conducted the party - and this is more than a month later! Again, thank you.
With regards,

Veronica


 

"Gary DJ'd my sons Christening and he did a phenomenal job. I gave him an extensive list of song selections and he played them all!! He also did a very good job adding to my selections and everyone had a great time. He was also very attentive to our needs and overall just a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely keep him in mind for future parties!!"

Carmine 


 

"I promise you will not be disappointed! Gary DJ'd for out "50 something" wedding and we sang and danced all night. He's soft spoken and professional; reliable and prompt in communication. We shared our thoughts on what we like and he exceeded all expectations. I'm already planning my next party!!!!!!"
