We couldn't have been happier with our experience with Gary and 74 Events. It became clear as we went through the wedding planning process, talking to other vendors (our day of coordinator, photographer etc.), that Gary is well known in the “wedding community” in New York as the best in town. We chose to work with Donwill because I was already a fan of his music and work that he does in the comedy world. Donwill did an incredible job of reading the room and getting people on the floor. Our crowd was made up of people with really diverse musical tastes, so that had to be a challenge. When he made announcements, he sounded natural and warm, not like an over the top, typical wedding DJ. Highly, highly recommended.Sent on 05/03/2019

Professional, friendly, fun
Gary was super easy to work with, incredibly professional, and very accommodating. He was thorough with every bit of detail regarding the wedding events, timeline, venue etc. Every question/concern Gary had was purposeful and made us feel comforted that the DJ experience would go smoothly (which it did).Sent on 06/25/2019
Miles was our DJ and he was professional, talented, and an absolute blast to have. He was very engaged with the guests and delivered an awesome set for the night. He even brought a cowbell which ended the night beautifully :)

Gary & Vida are magical
100% worth the price tag. I couldn’t have been happier with the decision to splurge on the music. All night our guests were raving about Vida (our DJ). We had a diverse group at the wedding, Colombian, Jewish, Ecuadorian, so we wanted to get some Latin music blended with the pop and Sinatra. Vida was a magician. She had music for everyone and we danced for 4 hours straight! My feet are still sore.Sent on 06/18/2019
Working with Gary was also so easy, he knows weddings. He totally understands what will work, what’s too much and what we should just skip. He so easy to communicate with, and when your planning your wedding that is exactly what you need.
Gary and his army of accomplished DJs from 74 Events are by far the best people I've worked with to spin music for your wedding day! During the planning process, Gary will take excellent care of his couples, and always is prompt with his correspondence! Come wedding day, he selects the absolute best match for your DJ/emcee needs. I've had the pleasure of working with BOTH of his DJs named James - Mulry and Arnold - and felt 100% taken care of by each! Their knowledge of music - both mainstream and obscure (EDM set, anyone?) - runs deep, and they are so smooth with the emcee duties. No one is yelling at you to get on the dance floor here! Do yourself a favor and book them today!
Every time we work with Gary, the planning has been a breeze! His DJs helped me keep the night moving and kept the dance floor full! The last wedding that we worked with Rob, the floor was packed all night long. I have started recommending them to all my clients!
Amazing Dj I have been working and recommending him for almost 10 years !!
