  • Pete Goslow, who is both a classically trained musician and a skilled DJ, was the utmost professional who did double-duty at our wedding in Palm Springs. He battled the heat for FIVE hours in TWO locations at our outdoor venue, playing gorgeous classical guitar for our ceremony and making sure there was a swinging party while he DJ-ed at our reception. The entire time he was making sure that we were happy. My husband and I can't say enough about how much we loved working with Pete and we can't recommend him enough. Thanks Pete! You made our day so special:) -Leah & Dan

    Thank you Leah & Dan. Yes, it was def. hot in the desert that beautiful day – the evening was perfect. I love Moorten Botanical Garden. Working with your coordinator Peggy Shevlin is always a treat - love her and she made sure everything was perfect for all of us. Her company the Events Department really does a great job. Here is to an amazing 2020 – congratulations once again. Thank you for the nice review and choosing me to be a special part of your big day!

  • We got married at the Casino San Clemente in San Clemente, California this spring and Pete was AMAZING- our wedding wouldn't have been the same without him! From our first conversation, we knew we had to look no further. Not only was so professional and knowledgeable, but he right away felt like a friend. Through the whole planning process he was always there for us to answer questions or talk things through, always sharing his ideas and opinions which were so much appreciated. They say wedding planning is stressful, but it wasn't with Pete- he made it so easy! He was so thorough and timely while building our timelines and made everything so easy for us. We even had some last minute changes days before the wedding and Pete took care of it no problem and partnered with our coordinator to make the day go off without a hitch. He really goes above and beyond. What is so great about Pete is he can tailor to your vision and be so flexible- the music really made the day. We had him do a comb... Read more

  • My husband Joe and I were married at Twin Oaks Garden Estate on March 22. 2019 and we hired Pete as our DJ. Pete is not only extremely easy to work with he’s soooo good at what he does. The entire time he had my back and I trusted that he would do an impeccable job and that he did! From the planning stages to the actual day he kept things light and professional. He handled everything. He sang live for our ceremony and our cocktail hour and he also sang our first dance song. I received so many compliments on Pete’s performances. I also received tons of compliments on the way he mixed the songs while he DJ’d our reception. I explained to Pete during the planning stage all the different elements at play (African relatives wanting African music, my husband wanting The Weekend and me wanting everyone to stay dancing) and he took in everything that I asked for and he mixed it up beautifully. My guests were dancing the night away with huge smiles on their faces. Thank you so very mu... Read more

    Thank you Mindy for such a thoughtful and articulate review – I sincerely appreciate it! Working with you and Joe was such a pleasure – you are a very special couple and I’m extremely happy for you! Of course your location Twin Oaks was a homerun (such a wonderful place). Congratulations and next time a run into Marc McGrath, I’ll tell him you said hi!

  • We couldn't have asked for more in our wedding musician and DJ than what Pete provided for our July 11th wedding in Huntington Beach, CA. Pete was so easy to work with, responsive, highly detail oriented and an all around great guy. He guided us through the process in thinking about things that wouldn't have otherwise occurred to us, making us feel like we were in great hands. He collaborated with my now husband on a duet during the reception, which was amazing! Pete is great at what he does and it's clear he loves what he does. We can't say enough great things about our experience with Pete and highly recommend him for anyone looking for a great musician, DJ and emcee. We hope to have an occasion in the future to work with him again!

    Thank you Teri - I will never forget helping Ryan perform Songbird for you on the balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean at Paséa Hotel & Spa - that was an amazing moment. You both have incredible personalities and it was truly a pleasure working with. Loved your coordinator Laura Becker from Indie Dolls Events & Design - she is a rock start! Congratulations and thank you for choosing me.

  • Pete was the absolute best. My husband and I knew that music was going to be one of the most important elements of our wedding, and we are so grateful that we found Pete. We have very specific taste in music and brought a strong point of view to the style that we wanted on our day. Pete totally understood but also built on our ideas right in line with our taste and played a perfect set on the big day. He also covered some of our favorite songs and played wonderful live guitar before our ceremony as guests were being seated. Pete was equally impressive and great to deal with during the planning phase. He is available, highly attentive, organized and accommodating. We had a sound snafu the day of our wedding where the venue did not provide the necessary microphones for our wedding, but Pete saved the day by bringing his own equipment as back up. All in all could not recommend Pete more strongly.

    Thank you and congratulations once again Samantha! Working with you and Mathew was truly awesome and of course, your location at Calamigos Ranch Brichwood room in Malibu was spectacular! It’s all about the music!

  • My wife and I got married last month and we are so happy we found Pete to perform and DJ our wedding. Pete was a true professional from start to finish. We really appreciated his non-salesman approach and how customizable he made the experience for us. One of the main reasons we wanted Pete was not only does he have ALL 5 star reviews, he is a great musician and could perform live music as well as being an awesome emcee and DJ. At every step Pete kept us on track, from the initial conversations and planning meetings up through the wedding day. He provided a great deal of insight for the timeline based on his years of experience which made it so much easier for us. Pete made sure the reception went off without any issues and kept the pace of the night going smoothly, building momentum at all the right times. Pete was also flexible when we had specific requests or made last minute changes such as my best man's 18 minute long speech or when my wife's uncle wanted to perform his own ... Read more

    Every year someone leaves the most detailed and awesome review ever - which you clearly did. Your review might even be the best one I’ve ever received – thank you so much for taking the time to put so much thought into it – your review will help others see what I’m all about. Working with you an Lyna was a pleasure and of course, your wedding day was incredible, could not have gone better. I was thrilled to perform your first dance for you live and can’t wait to share the studio recorded version. Thank you for allowing me to work with your photographer Kevin Le Vu (who is amazing by the way). Creating your first dance video using his photos for the backdrop is going to be really nice – can’t wait to share it with you! Congratulations once again and thank you!!

  • Pete did amazing job. We emceed, DJ'ed, and play guitar at our at The Farm in Norco. Our venue had pretty strict rules for noise and he did perfect with that. He was very detailed, professional, easy going and had great ideas. From the first time we spoke I knew we were in good hands. He was on top of when sending his timeline and meeting our other vendors. He made it such an east process and I never had to worry. I would highly recommend Pete for your special day! -Mr & Mrs. Lewis.

    Thank you Micayla & Chad. I really appreciated you choosing me based on your Aunt Sheryn & Uncle Ryan’s referral. You made me feel like part of the family and it was a pleasure contributing to your special day. I’m so glad you were happy with everything! Congratulations!!

  • After my daughter got engaged, I went on a search for a musician who also could DJ her wedding reception. We were looking for someone who is classy. I as so excited when I found Pete. I knew from the first communication that we had found someone who would be professional, organized, and do a great job. He communicates thoroughly with emails and his website is informative and very helpful for planning purposes. When we were a month away from the wedding we had a more 2 hour planning session with Pete to plan the entire event timeline. I knew after the planning session that the wedding would be perfect. He took charge of everything. Pete played at the ceremony and it was perfect and then met us back at the reception site and played during cocktail hour and dinner. He is a wonderful musician and a very nice person. After dinner, he switched to being a DJ and we all danced for the rest of the evening. We could not have picked a better person to play and organize our daughter’s wedding.

    Thank you Lori! Courtney & Brian’s reception at Tower 23 in Mission Beach could not have been more spectacular. The ceremony at Mission Park on the bay was absolutely beautiful. When I’m playing guitar and DJing with a view of the Pacific Ocean I always pinch myself and can’t believe how lucky I am. Thank you for choosing me and it was truly a pleasure to work with you and be a special part of your daughter’s wedding day.

  • Our venue had some music restrictions since it was an outdoor/indoor venue, and my husband and I are super picky with music/DJs (we're both musicians and didn't want to hire a DJ at first). Pete totally customized everything to us. He can play guitar or DJ (or both, like he did for us), won't be cheesy on the mic (he'll be as chatty or invisible as you want), and the whole process leading up to the wedding is very personal (client portal where you can make playlists, he'll learn custom songs on guitar, he'll even make your day-of-timeline). Awesome!

    Thank you Victoria. Working with you and Yuval was a wonderful experience and of course, being a special part of your day was incredible - you are an amazing couple! Your location at Malibou Lake Mountain Club in Agoura is one of my favorites, very special place to have your wedding. Your coordinator Katie Bartlett and photographer Teri Kramer were a blast to work with. Congratulations once again and thank you so much for choosing me!

  • Pete was one of the BEST decisions we made for our Wedding on October 13th at The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa. He is so organized and helpful. He is an extremely talented musician. He played guitar for our Ceremony and Cocktail Hour and blew everyone away. He also did an amazing job as our MC and DJ. We received so many compliments from our guests on how amazing the music was. Pete is the real deal and I promise you will not be disappointed if you book him for your Wedding!

    Thank you Britney for the nice review. Working with you & David was so much fun - you are an incredible couple and your wedding day could not have gone better. Working with your private coordinator Doris Goodson of San Diego Events Company really was exciting - she is top notch. The new ballroom at the Westin is awesome and in opinion is one of the most breathtaking locations in Southern CA - the ocean view, sunset, beautiful open view ballroom – simply amazing. Thank you and congratulations once again!

  • I am beyond happy with choosing Pete to be a part of our wedding. He's more than just a DJ...he's a musician who can offer a variety of music for your event, from acoustic guitar to solo performance to DJ. He kept the crowd dancing while remaining tasteful. We received many compliments from all of our wedding guests about both his musical talent as well as his selection in songs. He did a great job at helping to run the reception as the MC as well.

    Thank you for the nice review Lauren. I’m so happy for you and Connor as it was a blast being a part of your special day and working with you! Vista Valley Country Club is a beautiful location and I sincerely enjoyed working with your in-house coordinator Kristy Trotter (she was so much fun and took good care of us). Of course your private coordinator Courtney Johnston with Kelsyraedesigns.com rocked it! Congratulations and thanks again for choosing me!

  • Pete deserves WAY more than 5 stars. Our wedding was this past weekend (9/14) and Pete was the best DJ/Musician/Wedding Expert we have ever encountered. If you're deciding between a couple of DJs, GO WITH PETE! He was SO organized and has his own website to help create your timeline for the big day, select music and document the details so he has all the information he needs. Pete offered his opinion on a few key things which my fiancé and I so appreciated. Working with Pete made us feel like we were really prepared for the wedding day since we didn't have a hired wedding coordinator. He'll stay in touch with you leading up to the big day and just hit everything out of the ballpark the day of. Pete's services are slightly higher priced than what we saw as the average price for a DJ BUT with the musician side of things, and just his general demeanor throughout the wedding night, hiring Pete was worth every single penny. Thank you Pete for everything!!

    Wow! That was the quickest review I have ever received considering your wedding was two nights ago – I’m completely flattered. Thank you for taking the time to write such an articulate and thorough review. Working with you and Ryan was so easy and such fun (considering you live and planned your wedding from Germany, it could not have gone smoother). Green Gables in San Marcos is a wonderful location and working with in-house coordinator Hannah Tortosa was a blast - she helped make your special day an amazing success! I’m very excited for the both of you and look forward to staying in touch. Congratulations!

  • My husband and I were married August 26, 2018 - We are from California but we live in Texas. We were high school sweethearts (40 years ago) and we were reunited just over a year ago. We decided we wanted to share our day with our family and friends in Southern California. We found an amazing place in West Covina, CA. All of our planning had to be done from Texas, which meant no face to face meetings. Everything had to be done over the phone. My husband is a drummer and music is very important to both of us. We wanted someone special that could understand that and also be able to get the crowd up and enjoying themselves. We looked at several different DJ's. Yes, there were others that less money, but as the saying goes - you get what you pay for. What impressed us and caught our attention was Pete's website. It was extremely professional AND he is also a musician. We sent Pete a note that we were interested and explained our situation. Pete was more than accommodating. He ... Read more

  • When my wife and I set out to plan our wedding at Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Palos Verdes, California we had a difficult time deciding on music for the big day. We loved the idea of having live music during the ceremony and parts of the reception, while also having a DJ for dancing later in the evening, but finding someone who would excel at both felt out of reach. I spent a lot of time browsing different venders until I found Pete on Wedding Wire and after meeting with Pete over the phone we knew right away he was the right person for the job and he would make our big day memorable. In the months leading up to the wedding we met with Pete several times to go over the timeline for the ceremony and reception as well as our music choices. Pete provided great expertise and helped us iron out details in our planning that undoubtedly would have caused stress on our wedding day without his help. Pete allowed us to pick songs we wanted to hear, blacklist songs we didn't, and brus... Read more

    Thank you for posting the outstanding & thorough review Josh - I’m beyond words! Working with you and Melissa was certainly a highlight of last summer. The views of the ocean at your location are perhaps the most impressive in all of Southern CA - it truly was dream. Thank you for entrusting me and congratulations once again!
