Prior to founding Nightshift Sounds Entertainment, Marcel was a professional musician (drummer). He performed with many well-respected groups including ISIS, Voodoo Funk & Soul and Soul Vaxxination. A graduate of LSU, Marcel also played on the drumline of the famed “Golden Band From Tigerland”, which remains one of his proudest accomplishments.

He has also Emceed for several Mardi Gras organizations including Athena, Aegis, Choctaw, Odysseus, Orpheus and others.
After 20+ years in music and entertainment, Marcel’s passion and enthusiasm is still as strong today as it has ever been. He believes that’s essential to the success of your event! As Marcel says, "For me, every event is personal! I want to give my clients the best experience possible and, at the end, have them saying 'WOW! That was awesome!'".
He might have a baby face, but don't let that fool you! Gaetano has an extremely broad knowledge of music along with the ease and confidence of a seasoned professional on the mic.
A native of The Bronx, New York, Gaetano comes from a musical family. His grandfather was a jazz musician and band leader who exposed him to an eclectic variety of music at a very young age. From Country to Classic Rock and Aretha Franklin to ZZ Top, there really isn’t any kind of music he doesn’t know and love.
Gaetano first caught Marcel’s eye at a July 4th party where he showed an interest in the mixing console. The two began talking, and “G”, as he is affectionately known, began queueing up tunes. Marcel was so impressed with his musical taste and diversity that he offered to take him on as an apprentice. The rest, as they say, is history!
G’s boyish good looks, fun dance moves and infectious personality have made him an audience favorite. But more importantly, G is committed to the qualities that have made Nightshift Sounds Entertainment the top DJ service in Mississippi – passion, professionalism, attention to detail and the ability to get a crowd going!
Jared, aka "The Bow Tie Guy", may be the new guy on the team, but he's proven to be an incredibly quick study and a natural behind the mixing console.
He knows and loves all types of music - from Classic Country to 90's Boy Bands to Rat Pack Jazz to current Top 40 and more. Jared is a detail-oriented guy that really understands how to get a party going and keep it going all night long. Plus, he's a natural on the mic with a big and confident personality.
Jared is a veteran of the US Army and MS Army National Guard and has a true love for helping others. His motivation as a DJ is no different. He wants to make sure you have a successful event and let him do the work.
Jared is also a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Alfonso Realty in Gulfport, MS further expanding on his desire to help others. He even has his own YouTube channel, The Bow Tie Guy Realtor, where he demonstrates his kitchen prowess. Jared is married to his beautiful wife Maya and father to one rambunctious son named Easton.
