I’m using Variety Music. They’re really great! Ask for Ray. You’re well within your budget if you use him. Tell him Julie sent you.

We’re using DJ Gaza (aka Gary Hoffman). I was highly impressed by his references and he is routinely recommended on local wedding boards, so we went with him.  He’s well within your price range too. Good luck!

I’m using Carol from A Starry Night!  I also met with DJ Gaza and really liked him as well.  He was my second choice. 🙂

DJ Gaza for me too.  However, it won’t actually be him dj-ing.  It’ll be Constantine, one of his partners.  They seem really great.  We’ll see on Oct 3!

Just had my wedding a month ago and used DJ Gaza. He’s great to work with and one of my fav vendors. He’s definitely within your price range.

We just met with DJ Gaza today, and we’re going to book him!  Well, his partner James, but we were VERY happy with him.  A friend had Mandy at her wedding in the spring (another one of his DJ’s) and we were BLOWN AWAY by how great she was.

Fingers crossed!  We were thinking of signing the contract and mailing it out, and all the shout outs are making me feel super confident that we are making the right decision!

we used elite entertainment – dj Jay and we were really really happy. They are in jersey but they do weddings in the tri-state area. They were below you budget

We used Touch of Class DJs and Video.  They have a package that fits your budget of $1500 if the prices did not go up.  I’m sure they are negotiable.  They are located in New Jersey.  They arrived on time and punctual for our setup on the day of the wedding.  They also have a great photobooth package.  Our guests looved the photobooth and their equipment works fast… which keeps the line moving, guests happy and merry.

We just had our wedding on 5/26/12 at The Foundry in LIC/NYC, and had DJ Gaza (Gary Hoffman) as our DJ. I don’t even know where to start about how absolutely INCREDIBLE he was! We had 105 guests, and from the moment he started playing music, our guests DID NOT STOP DANCING. I’m not exaggerating that every person I hugged goodbye had sweaty backs from all of the amazing dancing he inspired!

He brings his A+ game not only to the wedding day, but also all throughout the planning stages. He’s beyond organized, professional and nice! We never once felt unsure about his capabilities not only as a DJ, but also as a professional in the business. He wasn’t a cheesy announcer like some DJ’s can be, and was flexible with the vibe we were going for. He was also very helpful in giving us tips/advice on how to logistically plan out the chain of events for the big day. We gave him a general idea of our musical tastes, and somehow he knew which songs our guests would be most responsive to!

We truly believe that he played an ENORMOUS part in the success of our wedding. We might be a little biased, but so many of our guests wrote us afterward telling us how awesome the music was, and how much fun they had. 

He has a gift, people. Book him immediately — it will be one of the best wedding decisions you will make.
