DJ BFG is an artistic wedding DJ in the Albany, New York area. This DJ blends songs to create a party atmosphere for couples' weddings. Her relaxed persona and attention to detail ensures that she's always in control of the music being played, even when the energy is high on the dance floor.
Having worked as a DJ since 2003, Gabby Squailia, better known as DJ BFG, trained at NYC's Scratch Academy. Based in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, she provides entertainment for couples in the Albany area and New York City. Trained in the art of beat-matching and blending, DJ BFG doesn't use a playlist like many other wedding entertainment services. Instead, she mixes songs on the fly. This gives her the ability to change the music to match the response from the crowd, and incorporate couples' favorite songs into the mix.
This wedding DJ will play electronic, hip hop, indie, international, jazz, oldies, pop, R&B/soul, rock and top 40 music. She offers the following services and equipment for couples' weddings:

Seriously, stop looking and book DJ BFG right now. Gabby did a phenomenal job with the music and sound at our wedding ceremony and DJing our reception, and she was a pleasure to work with from our very first phone call. Our family and friends are not all big dancers, but the dance floor was full all night, and everyone from my 4-year-old niece to my parents' college friends were getting into it. Apart from "congratulations," the most common sentiment people came up to share was "this DJ is amazing!" She takes the time to get to know your musical tastes, but also reads the crowd and always has the perfect song for the moment. For example, before the wedding we had shared our disdain for the cheesy macarena/chicken dance/electric slide genre of wedding songs, so you can imagine how we felt when - horror of horrors - our guests spontaneously started a conga line. However, Gabby threaded the needle perfectly by playing Harry Belafonte's "Shake, Senora," catering to the crowd and to our musical snobbery at the same time. We can't recommend her highly enough and will be on the lookout for events she's working when we come to the Berkshires in the future!

The highlight of our wedding!
Okay, I'll be honest, our wedding went pretty much flawlessly. The venue was perfect. The food was great. All our favorite people came. The ceremony had people in tears--most of all, us. But the absolute highlight of the wedding was the fact that EVERYONE was on the dance floor having a great time for pretty much the whole night--thanks to Gabby's great music and excellent service.
Gabby was great to work with. She was responsive, thorough, and flexible the whole way. We talked to her when we booked her and she told us to make a Spotify playlist and every time we heard a song we thought we might want at the wedding over the next six months, to just add it there. Then we sent that to her, plus some general thoughts about what we wanted, two weeks before and did a video call with her to work out the details. She was super responsive and her thoroughness and professionalism put us at ease--a hard thing to do a week before a wedding!
Come wedding night, she was amazing. She hadn't played our venue before, but she was thorough setting up the mics for the ceremony and speeches and so the acoustics were perfect. She did an awesome job with our introduction and first dance and setting up the speeches. After that, she didn't talk too much (except the things we had requested) and instead just played GREAT music all night that got people up and dancing. She also is really good at transitions and mixing between songs that get people pumped. (You can tell she's a dance floor DJ as well as a wedding DJ--it shows.)
After the wedding we have gotten a lot of compliments, but the #1 compliment was about the music and overall fun and lively vibe of our wedding, And I really credit Gabby greatly for that. If you can book her, you definitely should! Other than choosing to marry each other, this was probably the best wedding-related choice we made.
Tl;dr: Gabby is GREAT!

We just got married yesterday and can't recommend DG BFG enough! She is completely worth it! She was great to communicate with before the event and she was organized, professional, and flexible throughout our wedding. Most importantly, our guests were pleased with all of the music during the wedding. We had to remind people to stop dancing and get cake! We could not have been happier with DJ BFG.
We've had the opportunity to work with DJ BFG on a number of occasions, and have always been thrilled by the experience. If you're looking for a great DJ in the Berkshires (and beyond) for your wedding, gala, birthday, or any other event, we highly recommend DJ BFG! We look forward to working together again in the future!
