    Made our reception a party.

    Garreth was awesome. He contacted us a few weeks before our wedding to get our genre preferences, likes/dislikes, and all of the other reception music notes. He was on time, unobtrusive, polite, but really new how to keep our party moving. We had asked for music for all ages, and he kept our dance floor full. People at our reception complimented us on our hire for days after the party, he made that much of an impression. We would hire Garreth again without hesitation!

    Best Wedding DJ Ever!

    If you want a wedding DJ, look no further —DJ G Swift (Garreth) is the absolute best! His flexibility and willingness to meet every request was extremely valuable, both leading up to the wedding and on our wedding day. He has a plethora of music which suits all age groups and he is very skilled at reading a crowd— we had everyone dancing the whole night!

    Garreth, you’ve got some badass skills at blending/mixing and transitioning songs. I may not know the proper “DJ” terms, but I want to thank you for making everything absolutely flawless! It was the best party ever!

    Brides (and Grooms): A wedding is extremely stressful and difficult to plan. Make your life easier by choosing Garreth. He will not disappoint. I promise!

    Sincerely,
    A Newlywed

    We Danced All Night🙌🏻

    Ge’s song choices were great and kept with the flow of our evening. He catered to all of our needs perfectly and kept the party going all night long! I was definitely in need of a foot massage after the amount of dancing we did it wouldn’t have been the same without him🙌🏻
