So fun! Fantastic personality, great music.
Chris Giakus and Galavant entertainment made my wedding a wonderful experience by meeting with me and my husband over zoom and asking what we want and are looking for. He had a great song list and selection but was flexible and happy to get all the music we asked for when we decided to make our own custom soundtrack for most of the wedding which included hymns, 80s music, Disney music, and even music from our favorite anime. Chris is such a great entertainer and personality. He has enthusiasm and smiles and dances, along with singing and playing live music. Chris and his girlfriend learned a pretty obscure hymn within short notice so that I (the bride) could walk down the aisle to it. He has microphones and beautiful uplifting equipment that made even our rustic barn venue look even better than before. I was afraid of it not matching up with the venue's style but it really worked beautifully. Great great great experience having Galavant entertainment as a part of our special day!Sent on 07/27/2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my husband and I decided to postpone our large reception for a more intimate family ceremony on our original date. While planning, I came across Chris and was impressed with his work. I reached out and got a response almost immediately. Chris recommend we have Matt play the guitar (our intimate wedding venue did not allow amplified events). We gladly accepted not knowing what to expect but happy to have some sort of live music. Chris made planning so easy and painless. Very flexible and attentive!Sent on 07/27/2021
Our wedding day came and we were BLOWN away by Matt! He played every song perfectly and played what we asked when we asked without cue! Our guests were absolutely amazed by him and couldn’t stop talking about him.
We were so impressed and happy, that we booked both Matt and Chris for our large reception for cocktail hour and the ceremony! We can’t wait to work with them both again in December!
Don’t hesitate in booking this phenomenal company, you won’t be disappointed!

Exceeding my every expectation!
Chris and Matt played at my wedding and it was such a pleasant experience. Chris was very professional from day one and made the entire process seamless. The duo’s performance exceeded every expectation I had and made the day so special. Chris was patient with me and never lost sight of my vision for the day. I would recommend Chris to anyone for any type of event and will most definitely use him again!Sent on 03/13/2021
Team of Galavant Entertainment
Chris Giakas is a professional wedding MC/Coordinator, singer, and guitarist from New Jersey. He began singing at a young age and was first inspired by Elvis Presley and early rock and roll. By high school, Chris learned various instruments such as the Guitar, Piano, Ukulele, and Mandolin. While attending college at Fairleigh Dickinson University he closely studied opera as well as crooning music like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and many more. After graduating college, Chris founded Galavant Entertainment and continued his music career by performing countless shows and now emcees and sings at weddings all over the NJ/NY Tri-State area.
Chris often gets hired to play acoustic guitar for ceremonies and cocktail hours and then MC and DJ weddings. He then continues to bring that special live element in as he croons the classics while you eat. In addition, Chris' voice adapts to every different genre there is. His endearing friendliness, versatile skill set, and attention to detail make him the kind of special triple “threat talent” that we’re all about here at Galavant.
