A decade ago I relocated Upstate to Hudson, NY and began playing house parties & garden events followed by town nightspots like The Hudson River Theatre, Jason's Upstairs Bar, The Red Dot, Helsinki Hudson and The Basilica and more.
My sets feature a mix of dance music genres from around the world from past to present – including New Wave, Indie, Disco/Nu-Disco, Electro, Rock, Motown and beyond.

Simply, the best.
After being able to work with Gio and Jason at a few weddings, I knew when the day came for my own wedding, I needed them to be there. When you work in the wedding industry, you get used to the same music every weekend. It was always a breath of fresh air that kept me in an upbeat mood when they were the entertainment while I was working. They are also amazing to work with and be around- positive, fun, easy- going and professional.Sent on 08/01/2019
When it came time to book my wedding date, I based it on their availability. Music sets the entire vibe for the day and I knew Gio would set the tone for the party we wanted. Planning our music with him was honestly the most fun my Husband and I had throughout the whole wedding planning process. So easy and tailored just for us. His EMcee Jason takes care of the announcements so he can focus on the music.
On the day of, everything went so smoothly and just how I envisioned it. From our ceremony song selections which were a little out of the box and timed intricately, to rolling with a few snafus and smoothing them over without anyone noticing and always reading the crowd to keep the dance floor going all night. It's been months since and people are still raving about how great the music was and how cool and "not cheesy" they were.
I recommend Gio + Jason to everyone. They nail any vibe and create a great party atmosphere, truly value their clients, treat the guests with kindness and professionalism and are the kind of guys who will be your friends for life after meeting them once.

Our best decision!
Hiring Gio & Jason for our wedding was one of the best decisions we've made throughout our entire planning process. The second that we met Gio we just knew it was going to be the best night of our lives. He's extremely knowledgable, personable, and overall a blast to be around. He helped us through each an every part of our reception timeline and was extremely flexible when we had a hiccup with our cocktail hour piano player. He stepped right in and saved the day and made sure the night was perfect. Jason was a great MC! He was readily available the entire night and made our intros and dancing so much fun! The vibe that Gio and Jason exude is contagious and you'd be really missing out not hiring this duo. Us and our guests will never forget the fun we had on the dance floor and the amazing vibe they brought to dinner! Thank you both for the best night ever!!Sent on 04/25/2019

The Man - The Myth - The Legend.... So Good!!
Prior to the wedding DJ Gio took the time to talk with us, understand our music taste, and align with our vision of the perfect wedding reception event. By the end of our conversation, I was was able to hand off this supreme responsibility of wedding music to DJ Gio without a hint of anxiety or hesitation. I knew my big night was in good hands. His expertly crafted playlists ended up being everything that we had hopped for. He was able to work in some of our offbeat favorites and still keep a packed dance floor. Also, DJ Gio was very accommodating in helping with last minute sound equipment for the ceremony and was ever so graceful in handling the random reception announcement requests from the family and song requests from the guests. We couldn't be more happy and highly recommend DJ Gio's services to anyone.... for any event.....formal or not!!!! He knows how to keep a party hot!Sent on 12/18/2018

Great DJ - you won't be dissapointed! Hope to have him back at the BARN soon.
DJ Gio is by far one of the best DJ's in the hudson valley. He has fantastic taste in music and can really get the crowd to dance. I have worked with him on numerous occasions and always witnessed people loving the music. When it was my turn to get married Gio was my top choice, he did a fantastic job and my guests were raving about the music for weeks after the wedding. I would highly recommend him!
We love DJ Gio and so will you. His singular brand of style combined with his excellent ear for music is not just professional but unique! He isn't a "corporate" hohum DJ, he's truly talented. He doesn't fall into that typical "emcee" trap that many DjS employ. He's every bit the artist you want a DJ to be. You'll love him. He's a cool cat. He's also adorable.
