Hello Brides of Long Island, and congratulations on your engagement! I’m Anthony Gelo of GTP DJ Entertainment, a boutique DJ and entertainment company. I will personally walk you through the exciting process of selecting the music for your wedding, from beginning to end. My motto is “when the music matters.” Sure, we can add all the bells and whistles like uplighting and monograms, but the most important thing to me is that the music fits your vibe. By taking into account your personal musical tastes and your guest demographics, we’ll curate the playlists and genres to fit the kind of party you want to have. There are no cookie cutter approaches to your music – I use my expertise and resources to put everything together into a completely customized and personalized musical experience.
The Wedding Industry
I’m drawn to weddings because of how unique they are. There’s something incredibly rewarding about putting together music that fits two people’s personalities and tastes, working on an event from start to finish, and creating a memorable experience that represents a couple’s story.
The Wedding Memories
It’s hard to pick a favorite wedding because they’re all so distinctive. From international weddings in India to my own cousin’s wedding closer to home, I’ve loved them all for different reasons. However, I will always remember something special that I helped organize for recent clients. At a recent wedding the show Schitt’s Creek was very meaningful to the couple. One of the grooms wanted to surprise his fiancé by recreating the famous “Simply the Best” scene at their reception. So we sat down together and came up with the idea to do a stroll line, and at the end of the line we pulled out a chair and sat his fiancé down. That was an amazing moment to create.
My specialization is YOUR music. That might sound obvious coming from a DJ, but what I mean by that statement is that I find the perfect places for the songs you want to hear – even if you don’t think they’ll fit on a “conventional” wedding set list. I’ve worked with a lot of brides and grooms that say, “I love this song, but I can’t do it for my wedding.” And I’ll always respond “yes we can, we just have to find the right spot for it.” I’m an open format DJ, and I have a lot of experience in a lot of different genres. Most of today’s couples listen to a little bit of everything, and I love matching your favorite songs with the moments where they belong. Of course I’ll play the fan favorites if you’d like them, but you’ll never get a generic playlist from me.
I began my career in the nightlife industry, and also have years of experience in weddings, private parties, corporate functions and school events. GTP has had an ongoing relationship with St. John’s University for many years. But even though I’ve been doing this for a while, I’m still constantly evolving and learning. I love attending conferences, networking, and refining my skills.
Q: Do you work all weddings on your own? What happens if you’re booked on my date/get sick/have a last-minute emergency? A: I work the vast majority of weddings myself – about 90% of the time, you will see me there! In the event that I’m booked on your date, I have a trusted network of vetted DJs that will make sure everything runs smoothly. I always have back-up plans in place, so even if something unexpected comes up for me, your wedding will have a passionate and professional DJ at the helm. Q: Do you have insurance? A: Yes! I’m fully insured.
Anthony Gelo from Good Times Productions is absolutely Fantastic !! Every one loves him . He always goes out of his way to please all. He is totally outstanding!! His music is awesome! Anthony does a Excellent Job. I would most definitely recommend Anthony from Good Times Production.
Anthony and his assistant Craig put together the perfect soundtrack for our wedding. In the run-up to the wedding he was super flexible. During the wedding he played the perfect songs to both reflect our sensibilities and get both a bunch of stolid midwesterners and Filipino Aunties up on the dance floor and hopping about. After the wedding we got a bunch of compliments about the DJ and would 100% recommend him to anyone.
It is without hesitation that I recommend Good Times Productions for any event. Anthony did a superb job at my wedding, where we had a cross-generational crowd. The music was perfect, and Anthony emceed flawlessly. He used our suggestions and his experience to curate the perfect playlist for our guests. Look no further. This is the DJ to hire.
I hired Good Times Productions / DJ Anthony Gelo for my wedding and I don't think I could of found a better DJ. Anthony was very helpful throughout the whole setup process from music selection through the timeline setup. He has great musical timing and great crowd control. Anthony really made sure that my wedding had a great flow to it. He is also very professional during his announcements and does overuse the microphone like a lot of other wedding DJ's I've seen before. If your looking for a great DJ then look no further then Good Time Productions!
Anthony is genuinely the best DJ I've ever worked with! Not only does he play great music, but he's also a pleasure to work with. He lent us his many years of experience and expertise to help make our event a huge success. I cannot say enough good things about him and Good Times Production!!
Anthony was a fantastic addition to our wedding. He genuinely cares about making the music fit your vision for your big day, and his online request system is very easy to use. We got a lot of compliments on how great the music was at our event and couldn't be happier with how everything went. Book Anthony - you won't regret it!
Anthony did a great job DJing and MCing our wedding. We had a pretty small wedding and Anthony gave us a reasonable price compared to other DJs. He was great to work with. Very professional, organized, and understanding of our tastes. He did a good job weaving together our distinct musical selections.
I hired Anthony and I couldn’t have asked for a more professional and talented DJ. He was quick, efficient and had my guests on their feet enjoying the music for duration of the event. Not only was Anthony was professional and prompt, but he also tailored the music perfectly to fit the theme of the event. He was responsive and communicative from the initial inquiry to the wrap up at the end. I would recommend him for any event. He is versatile and well worth it!
