Marcel is simply the best!

Marcel was absolutely incredible! We could not be happier with the results. At our first meeting, it was clear that he "got" us and really listened to our requests. We left that initial meeting knowing that we were in good hands with Marcel and immediately felt that peace of mind we so needed. We had a few fun/different requests for our wedding and he nailed each of them flawlessly. Marcel was highly complimented by not just us, but our guests as well. We would recommend Marcel to our friends and family without a doubt. Great personality, easy to work with and responsive. He's simply the best!

Geatano Kortman
Geatano Kortman
DJ

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 Wabel
Jared Wabel
DJ

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.
