ABOUT Dj Gary:
How long have you been in the DJ business?
I've been a DJ for over 20 years. This has made me an expert in dealing with the unexpected and making your day run smooth.
Are you a Multi-DJ company?
No, If you hire me, I'll be the one to show up along with one assistant. Although in over 20 years I never missed an event, in case of an emergency, I make sure there is always someone available to back me up.
How do you dress for your formal events?
I wear a suit to formal events and dress appropriately to all other events.
How do you keep the flow of my event moving?
I work closely with your vendors and/or coordinator to keep things moving so you won't have to worry about what's coming up next.
Do you also handle the announcements and introductions as an MC?
Yes, I make sure every announcement is spoken clearly so everyone can understand. When announcing peoples names, I write them down phonetically so they are pronounced correctly. Eye contact is made with your guests when speaking on the microphone to ensure every announcement is heard and understood.
Can you provide music for a Ceremony or Cocktail/hors d'oeuvres?
Yes, I have an additional system solely for that purpose.
Do you take requests?
Yes. If it is appropriate and fitting for your guests I'll play the song requests.

Do you beat match your music to create a non-stop mix of music?
Yes, unless otherwise requested, I blend the music together and beat match mixes to give your guests a non-stop dancing experience.
Do you play clean versions of songs?
Yes, all my music is screened for explicit content and I will take the necessary steps to ensure that you get the quality "clean versions" of the music you expect with no surprises.
How do we secure your service?
For formal events, we schedule a meeting and create an itinerary/timeline of what events you would like to happen, I'll play music samples for you to choose from, we'll determine the exact cost, sign a brief contract, place your non-refundable deposit and this will secure your date.
NOTE: For other "non-formal" events, this can be handled through emails.
How far in advance should we book you?
If I'm available, I'll do your event, however, the sooner the better. With quality vendors, popular dates will be booked early. Six months or even up to a year in advance is best in some cases.
How much do you charge?
I highly recommend that you first set-up a personal meeting with me which lasts around 2 hours, this way we can personally meet, I can get an idea of what you're looking for and answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to call, email or text me anytime to set-up your meeting.
When is the balance due?
Preferably before, but no later than the day of your event.
