How am I different from the 2000 DJs that are on Wedding Wire and Google?

My background as a popular radio DJ at the biggest stations in San Diego and television host helps. I present a polished, fun and upbeat vibe at your wedding. I'm a music enthusiast and audio and video producer. With over 10,000 weddings, my experience shows on every aspect of your wedding. There is no substitute for experience.

"How will you know what we like in current music?" There is a myth the DJ has to be the same age as the Bride to do a good job. I've debunked this lie. I provide an interactive music platform to dial in exactly what you are looking for musically in advance, and during your wedding.

A winning philosophy: It's your custom wedding, not the DJs. Together we are a team. I play a little bit of music for all of the different ages at your wedding from the Bridal Party to Grandpa. Your wedding is built around your requests and my experience.

Don't take my word for it.

The most amazing DJ! Still raving about our memorable wedding.

Gary was the most kind, fun, and professional Dj I have ever had. We are still friends to this day and recommend him to all my girlfriends who are getting married. I had met with younger DJs but none of them seemed actually enthused and excited to be djing or got to know me and my husband and they were all overpriced and under experienced. Gary actually got to know us which is for me more personable and to know Gary has been a dj for over 20+ years and he had the experience, that could get everyone engaged (not falling asleep) and that is something I wanted. My sister who is a celebrity event producer in LA said amazing things about Gary DJ skills and our wedding. My wedding was a hit. Everyone could not stop dancing. My wedding was smooth and the transitions of music were flawless. Gary also worked within my budget since I was paying for my vendors but he sat down with me and let me know that he would work out the details with me and gave me advice when it came to stress. Not to mention my parents really liked him. He was just a cool guy, you know the ones that are the life of the party. It was such a relief. He played all of our jams that we picked out, the romantics ones, the 80s rock, the 90s throwbacks, the pop stars and even took it back to Frank Sinatra. He added in his flare and got the crowd moving and we danced all the way up until our departure. It is a day I will never forget and Gary is someone I would highly recommend Gary to anyone looking to have a memorable wedding! (my guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to kind of Fun)

Thank you Blythe!

    Tracey's 50th birthday party

    I hired Gary Kelley to DJ my 50th birthday party. We had a party of 150. Gary was so accommodating. He was very flexible with all of my requests. He is super friendly and all my guests loved him. He even took his own video so we could see the party from his perspective. What a great guy, I would hire him again in a minute!

    San Diego Disc Jockey - Gary Kelley's reply:

    Ahhhhhh, You're sweet. Thank you Shelby. Your wedding was special with many members of your family pitching in. From your Mom to your Aunt, all were working hard while smiling and enjoying every moment. For me as the DJ running the show, it could not have gone any better. God bless you and your family. Merry Christmas.
