Booking DJ Anthony & Good Times Productions for our wedding was without a doubt the best vendor decision we made. As a musician and nightclub owner, music was the most important element of our wedding celebration. It was also the element with which I had the most familiarity and the most resources. Ultimately we chose DJ Anthony not only for his musical expertise and ability to read a room but for his organization, work ethic and calm demeanor.Having had “pick of the litter” in the DJ world we went with Good Times and would unequivocally recommend them for any occasion. Thank you Anthony, for spinning the best party of our lives!
One of the first things from coming back from our honeymoon was to write this review. Anthony was nothing less than spectacular!! From the ceremony to cocktail hour and reception he was more than I could have wished for. Extremely professional and courteous. As you see in other reviews, he truly is “hands on” and takes an interest in your concerns. I have a VERY diverse family and he had EVERYONE dancing from start to finish (even my 90 year old aunt!! LOL!!). If you are getting married or having any type of event look for him to make it the PARTY!! Evenyone in my receiption had nothing but GREAT things to say about him and danced their @@@es off!! Thank you sooo much Anthony for being a special part of our day. I wish you nothing but great endeavors..Take care, Jen and T!!
On Saturday night we had Anthony dj my college graduation party. He was excellent! Anthony knew exactly what music to play and the whole set was amazing. He played great music all night and all of my geusts loved him as well. My mother and I liked how Anthony had a whole qeustionair that figured out exactly what kind of music i liked and what kind of atmosphere i wanted. He was very profesaional and helpful. I would highly recommend anthony to anyone who us looking for the perfect dj.
We hired DJ Anthony Gelo for our wedding and he was incredible!! He came highly recommended to us from our friends in the nightlife industry since he’s DJed at the bar and club/music venue where they work. We set up an initial meeting and he was beyond professional and came to our home for an initial mtg. He was fully prepared with a laundry list of things to go over with us. He was easy to get a hold of and always returned calls, so we never had a problem with correspondence. A week or two before the wedding, we had a second meeting with him and that’s when we nailed down the specifics of our playlist, what song would play when, the phonetic pronunciation of our wedding party, etc. Very buttoned down and professional, yet completely easygoing. And I should note that he is NOT one of those cheesy DJs who tries to steal the show at your event by being a corny emcee. That’s just not his style and he lets the music speak for itself. We are still getting calls from all our family and friends about how incredible the reception was and how much they loved our DJ! People are referring to our wedding as the ultimate dance party and said they had never danced so much in their lives. Hire him; you won’t be disappointed!
I’ve managed bars and clubs in the city for a dozen years and have used Anthony repeatedly. I can’t recommend his ability to read a crowd enough. I even saw him work the opening of a bank once (I went because I wanted to goof on him), and he actually had people dancing. I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it with my own two eyes. I’ve seen him in action from dive bars to high-end clubs to weddings and bar mitzvahs. Regardless of the event, he can put together the entertainment you need. He also acts like a professional, as opposed to the kids that think they’re DJs because they’ve got two ipods and a mixer.
Jaymie Scotto and Associates used Good Time Productions/DJ Anthony Gelo for a business-networking event held at Cipriani in June of 2012. Anthony was extremely friendly and professional, as well as, easy to work with. He was not only prompted for setup on the day of our event, but would answer emails and phone calls in a timely manner. Anthony was also very knowledgeable about the venue and the system used there, which was reassuring for us. During the event, Anthony was able to read the vibe of the crowd and keep them entertained with his music selections the whole time. Anthony had listened to our request of keeping the music engaging and appropriate, and delivered. It was refreshing to sit back, listen, and allow him to do his job, as oppose to having to worry. Anthony is certainly a DJ that can deliver and you can trust to do the job well.We would recommend Good Time Productions to family, friends, and other professionals to DJ events, and will use him again in the future.
Anthony and Good Times productions were absolutely wonderful!!! Music was one of the most important aspects to my husband and I for our wedding, and Anthony %100 delivered. We wanted everyone to dance all night long and that’s exactly what happened! He catered to the entire crowd, so many people were constantly commenting on how great the DJ was. Everyone was out of their seats and on the dance floor. He was a pleasure to work with the entire wedding planning process as well. I would hire him again in a heartbeat and absolutely recommend him!!
I highly recommend DJ Anthony Gelo of Good Times Productions. He recently entertained 40 kids and 60 adults at my son’s Communion Party and kept everyone, children and adults engaged and entertained throughout the entire party. He is extremely professional and took the time to listen and personalize our party with all the specific requests. The kids loved the giveaways which were nicer in quality than most of the things we have seen. He made the guest of honor feel very special with certain songs, dances and games. Throughout the party, DJ Anthony was so kind to approach me and ask if everything was going well and if I had any other requests. This kind of personal attention is amazing. I am going to use DJ Anthony at all of our future parties!!!
Anthony was the DJ for my wedding and he was INCREDIBLE! Our guests constantly came up to us at the wedding (and still do to this day) to tell us how much they loved the DJ. My wife and I couldn’t be more pleased. From the pre-wedding meetings to the last minute emails, Anthony was always ready and willing to accommodate our needs, and offered great ideas on how to make the night better. My wife and I are in the music business (not that it means much) so we may have micromanaged the playlists a little too much. But Anthony never minded. In fact, he encouraged us to be as detailed as possible about songs we love, and more importantly, songs we HATE. I never realized that making a “don’t play” can be just as helpful until Anthony requested it. During the wedding, the quality of his DJ-ing was perfect. Music was never too loud or too low, and we never heard a lull. The proof was in the fact that people simply would not stop dancing unless food was being served. In addition to the music, Anthony was an excellent MC. As he made the introductions and various announcements, his emitted a warm and friendly personality that made me, my wife, and our guests very comfortable throughout the night. If I have the chance to work with Anthony again, I would do so in a second. Aside from being a professional and talented DJ, he is a great guy. He really will do everything he can to make your night special, and specific to your needs.
We used Anthony for our wedding all through, the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He was personable and had the right personality for the sort of DJ we wanted. He brought an assistant and did two setups – one for the ceremony, and another for the cocktail hour/reception.From the time we first met, he understood what we wanted, and made great song and scheduling suggestions. He was amazing, kept everyone dancing, took requests, and announced us exactly the way I wanted. He was fun and lively. Plus, unlike some DJs I’ve seen, he didn’t sound like a lounge performer or a game show host. We were very happy with him.
Words cannot express my gratitude for making our daughter Emma’s wedding a most memorable occasion. Your consistent attention to detail is a testament to your ability to get the job done while never letting them see you sweat. Your level of professional courtesy as one DJ to another meant so much to me. As a DJ you alone can understand how difficult it was for me to be in the position to have to find a DJ. Letalone one with the same level of dedication to the work that I have. You far exceeded my highest expectations. “They never sat down”!!! What more could a DJ ask for? Thank you for treating us as so much more than simply customers. You will always be on the top of my list for family events. From the rave reviews I have received from my guests, I think you may be seeing some of them in the future too. Once again thank you for treating us like good friends. God Bless you.
They are very organized and professional. The dance floor was never empty! Great service! My husband and I were very satisfied. I definitely would recommend them to anybody!
Anthony was very accommodating, easy to work with, and did a great job on the day of our wedding. Prior to the wedding, he visited us several times to ensure he understood our needs. On the day itself, the Church was delayed and we were stuck in traffic, and Anthony did a great job at the hall managing affairs for us and keeping our guests relaxed and happy. We absolutely recommend him to anyone getting married. One additional note, we asked Anthony to play a few sets of ethnic dancing for our parents and relatives, and he was very conscientious about understanding the music and dancing. We really appreciated that. Anthony exceeded our expectations in every category.
First of all, I just want to thank you for being an incredible DJ. We had a blast at our wedding …and, from the looks of it, so did all of our guests. I don’t think anyone stopped dancing all night long! Really…you were fabulous and all of my guests told me how incredible the music was. You got them dancing and they didn’t stop..exactly what we asked for. I have told everyone who you are and given out your cards. You will definitely be doing another party for us…hopefully, some time soon.Let me know where you are Dj’ing…we would love to come see you (and dance). Thank you so much for being a true professional.

Good Times Productions is a FABULOUS DJ Company!! The Department of Student Life at St. John’s University has utilized DJ Anthony Gelo and the services of Good Times Productions for over 10 years and we will continue to do so in the future!! They are reliable and always do a great job for our events. Whenever I need a DJ, Anthony is the only one I call!!
Very well run company. Kept us in the loop for everything, worked with us on every aspect, and worked with us on music choices. Good price for the service, and in general, a pleasant experience. Would definitely contact him again if DJ services are needed.
Anthony was very professional. He met with us two times before the wedding to go over details, and he was always available if we needed to speak to him. He played the perfect kind of music for the mixed crowd at the wedding. There were different age groups and everyone had a great time. The dance floor was packed all night.
Great to work with, very professional and was willing to accommodate our intensive “play/do not play” list!!! Anthony did both our engagement party and wedding. We are sure to come up with other parties just to hire him again!
Anthony provided Disc Jockey Services for our annual Dance Recital. He met with me often prior to performance to ensure all details were covered and prepared in my best interest. He is efficient, trustworthy,creative, and very accommodating. Would absolutely recommend for any event!”
Anthony, I just want say you did a great job for my husband’s surprise retirement party. It is never easy to keep the guests entertained until
the guest of honor arrives. Then continuing through the evening. (Hopefully I could call you soon if one of my sons would get married ) HA HA HA !
Just Wanted to thank you for providing the great music at our recent Chase branch grand opening event in Hamilton Heights. The music certainly was a nice
complement to the overall event, and you did a fantastic job in keeping the customer traffic entertained. We look forward to working with you again in the future.
Thank you so much for making my father’s 60th birthday party a huge hit. All our guests enjoyed your music selection. You did a great job in keeping the
dance floor busy. Thank you again
