It all started with two turntables, the love for pizza and events. Having spent 30 years in the business, the President of Genesis Events, Joe Miller, had a vision. It inspired him to return to the original manner of servicing wedding clients. Joe rejuvenated our formula, secured the finest talent in New York and made the decision to provide our clients with a personal, boutique experience and a guarantee of the highest level of entertainment. As all our talent is inclusive, our brides have the peace of mind that they will receive the best level of entertainment available when they book with us. To ensure this, we personally meet with every GE client, and proudly make them a part of the family. Our diverse DJ's and sophisticated, high-energy MC's, combined with our in-house lighting and production delivers your visions and desires all under one roof.
The Wedding Industry
I am Joseph Zangrillo, MC and VP of Genesis Events. For the past 25 years I've been in the entertainment industry. I began my training with the art of magic and quickly became mesmerized with how my talents brought smiles to people’s faces. I grew my network, and learning the art of magic brought me close to some of the most prestigious Las Vegas magicians. Rubbing elbows with Siegfried and Roy, Lance Burton, and, under the direction and education of Joseph Gabriel, I was presented with my slot in a show at the C2k theatre, and that ran for a whole year!
With my passion for performing and music, I easily folded myself into New York's entertainment industry. MC’ing events seemed like second nature, and the opportunity to continue putting smiles on people’s faces soon became my drive to provide the very best service to my clients. Now, after 25 years, I pride myself in working with clients that envision something just a little bit different for their special events.
The Wedding Memories
The weather was horrible here in New York making it impossible for the Brides father to travel from India the day prior. Our team jumped right in to action. We redirected his flight and car serviced him from PA straight to the venue.
The moment he walked in the energy in the room was so incredible it could knock you off your feet while crying. Breath taking moment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I use a band or a DJ?
The answer to this question comes down to your budget and your music selection. We offer a concept to our clients that bridges both a DJ and band approach, adding highly talented musicians that jam along with the DJ, and are completely wireless. Additionally, we take it one step further and edit music to integrate with the sounds of the DJ and musician, making the delivery of the song both seamless and authentic.
Should my client desire more of a band feel, I can offer a singer, violist, percussion or even an electric guitar! Additional musicians give an unparalleled band feel. Fewer musicians bring more of a club feel to the client’s chosen event.
