  • We were seeking much more than a DJ for our daughter's wedding. We wanted a professional MC who could keep the party moving throughout the evening. We wanted the perfect balance between a traditional romantic wedding that would end with a club feeling for the younger crowd full of their college friends. To that end, the music choices were perfect, beginning with classics like Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, ending the night with EDM music and LED light sticks. Gary was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. He helped us formulate many of our ideas through the planning stages and his extra services of providing the sound system for the ceremony and colored up lighting, which helped transform an already amazing venue. Our primary reason for contacting Gary was having known of his professionalism and reputation in the San Diego broadcasting community. He understood our concerns about keeping it classy (and avoiding cheasey DJ antics) and stuck to his word. He showed up plen... Read more

    Dear Lynn, You are so kind. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Wonderful words from good people make me want to continue for years to come, especially from the Mother of the Bride. When someone is as appreciative as you, it's no longer work. Thank you for everything! God bless you and your family. Sincerely, Gary Kelley

  • Gary was such a pleasure to work with from the very beginning! We currently live overseas so communication was all through emails up until we landed in San Diego for the wedding. Gary was very patient and understanding of our situation. I was late in creating our preferred playlist for music but Gary was took care of it all seamlessly. I wasn't even able to talk to Gary until the day of the wedding (this is NOT his fault, it was mine since I had given him the wrong number!) but when we did talk, Gary was very professional and said that the communication via email was perfectly fine and that he's got all of the music prepared for us! Gary was also a great emcee! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our special day! He is a very sweet person to work with and I would recommend him to any of my friends that may have a wedding coming up! Gary is very experienced with these events and he even recommended us to change our timeline a bit to open up the dance floor for our guests. He ... Read more

    I can die now! Lol. I’m blessed to be in a business that connects me with so many wonderful people like you Rina. I’ve always considered myself as being in the peace of mind business first, DJ emcee second. Weddings have a certain amount of stress attached to them, when I can help make the most important day in your life a little better, it’s no longer a job. Thank you Rina. God bless you and Paul and your family. Your kindness will not be forgotten. Sincerely, Gary Kelley

    Thank you Jean! Your son’s wedding was beautifully put together by you and Peter in your own back yard. Most would look at your photos and think the wedding was at a very nice venue. It was, yours! Merry Christmas and thank you again for having me. I sincerely appreciate your kind words. Gary

  • I hired Gary Kelley to DJ my 50th birthday party. We had a party of 150. Gary was so accommodating. He was very flexible with all of my requests. He is super friendly and all my guests loved him. He even took his own video so we could see the party from his perspective. What a great guy, I would hire him again in a minute!

    Ahhhhhh, You're sweet. Thank you Shelby. Your wedding was special with many members of your family pitching in. From your Mom to your Aunt, all were working hard while smiling and enjoying every moment. For me as the DJ running the show, it could not have gone any better. God bless you and your family. Merry Christmas. Gary

  • Gary is the best! First of all, he’s so friendly and personable. The planning process with him was so fun and easygoing. He gives you his full attention throughout the entire planning process and is detailed and thorough to ensure he gets it exactly right for the big day. Gary goes above and beyond simply being the DJ. He has fun and takes pride in what he does, and it shows in his work!

    Charithea, When I read your note I stopped, took a breath, and took in the moment. Your kindness means so very much and affirms I'm doing something that brings joy. As a Professor, Teacher, DJ, Emcee, Radio and TV guy and Video Producer, I still get a thrill bringing out the Bride and Groom for their very special first dance. Yours was magical. I have some footage I shot as a gift for you and will get your way in the coming days. Thank you to you and Daniel for making me feel like family. It's the greatest gift of all. Merry Christmas. Gary

  • I will copy/paste what I sent to Gary the day after my wedding. This guy was so very, very good. Blended our two First Dance songs beautifully, fabulous wit and repartee and kept the dance floor full of energy all night. He even managed to do and then edit/produce a great compilation video from his phone of our event.. I was speechless!!! A reception can fall flat on its face with the wrong DJ, this position is the pulse of the event and he was Flawless! Here’s my text to Gary the next day: DUDE!!!!! You KILLED it last night!!! The DJ is the rudder of the reception, if the DJ doesn’t navigate well, the whole course of the event is askew... you Captained the ship with skill and precision. Thank you so very very much. SPECTACULAR!!!! We are going to Yelp the heck outta you!!!!

  • Gary was the DJ for our daughter's wedding. This space does not have enough room or enough stars to give Gary the review he deserves! His professionalism, job knowledge, and customer service are unmatched and the absolute BEST in the business. Our event flowed flawlessly, the dance floor was busy all night, and the music selections were spot-on. I would recommend Gary to anyone and everyone !!

    Ahhhhh, thank you Mr. Grube. You have such a wonderful family. I'm touched by your kindness and your words. Thank you and Merry Christmas! Gary

  • Gary was the most kind, fun, and professional Dj I have ever had. We are still friends to this day and recommend him to all my girlfriends who are getting married. I had met with younger Djs but none of them seemed actually enthused and excited to be djing or got to know me and my husband and they were all overpriced and under experienced. Gary actually got to know us which is for me more personable and to know Gary has been a dj for over 20+ years and he had the experience, that could get everyone engaged (not falling asleep) and that is something I wanted. My sister who is an celebrity event producer in LA said amazing things about Gary DJ skills and our wedding. My wedding was a hit. Everyone could not stop dancing. My wedding was smooth and the transitions of music were flawless. Gary also worked within my budget since I was paying for my vendors but he sat down with me and let me know that he would work out the details with me and gave me advice when it came to stress. Not to men... Read more

  • From the moment we first sat down with Gary to discuss music for our wedding, my husband and I knew that Gary would offer what we were looking for in a DJ: professional quality service provided by a warm and engaging human being whose goal was to meet our unique, rather eclectic, needs. Gary listened carefully to our story and music preferences, which informed his understanding of what we had in mind for our intimate gathering. It was a collaborative musical journey, and he spared no effort in helping us along the way. On our wedding day - Thanksgiving! - Gary was a calm and reassuring presence. He intuited how best to keep the musical energy flowing seamlessly, attentively choosing songs from his and our playlists with the perfect mood or lyrics to suit the dynamics of the moment. His occasional, well-timed commentary unobtrusively guided guests - and us - over the course of the day. He even captured on video a brief snippet of guests dancing happily, while at the same time he "... Read more

  • This past Saturday night was my 70th birthday party. We had the event in our backyard and invited about 50 people. My wife and I knew that we wanted a DJ. The age range of our guests was early 30's and up. We knew that the DJ had to be able to read the crowd and create a musical play-list that everyone would enjoy. Gary hit this one "out of the park"! The first hour, while everyone was enjoying dinner, he provided a wonderful mix of soft jazz and classic oldies. After dinner, I made an announcement that this was going to be a "dance party" and Gary got the crowd moving. Throughout the evening, he played a mix that everyone loved. I recommend Gary highly to be your DJ. Besides being a professional at his craft, he is one hell of a nice guy!!

  • We could not have chosen a better wedding DJ than Gary! My husband and I are in the phase where all our friends are getting married and were hitting a wedding a month. Our wedding was the only one where everyone was on the dance floor (which was our goal!). Aside from his great playlist, Gary was very accommodating as well. Last minute, we discovered there was no outlet at the ceremony site for the amp and without skipping a beat or upcharging, he replaced it with a battery operated one. He also made us a cute video to send out to our guests as a wedding reminder AND a video of the wedding night.
