I highly recommend hiring About Music Pro for your wedding! Gary was our DJ, Emcee, and musician and we have nothing but good things to say about him!
I planned majority of our wedding on my own and he was hands down my favorite vendor to work with. He responded to my emails quickly, which helped a lot during the planning process. We only met once prior to our wedding, but it was more than enough. He followed up with us hours after meeting and even helped us fix our reception timeline to make the night flow better. The day of the wedding everything was excellent. We are extremely happy and grateful for the incredible work Gary from About Music Pro did!!
About Music Pro provided a 5-piece band for our wedding reception and they were totally amazing, our guests were raving about how great the band was at our wedding! Gary Rich was the band leader and MC he read the room so well, he tailored the music based on the questionnaire we provided prior to the day as well as how the crowd was feeling the night of the wedding! We had a huge range of ages present (from 7 years old to early 80's) and everyone was on the dance floor. The band played a large variety of styles of music. When one of the groomsman was giving his toast and quoted a song, the band transitioned that same song into the toast as the groomsman was still speaking. It made the entire toast that much more amazing and crowd went crazy! Thank you to About Music Pro / Gary Rich and his band for an incredible evening :)
Gary Rich was DJ/MC and Pianist at our wedding on 1/22/17. I could go on and on about every bit of the experience leading up to and during wedding that was absolutely awesome AND EASY because of Gary, or you could just read the other 5 star reviews! I think more valuable than my opinion is that of our photographer. We used a GREAT photographer, and her comment to us was that Gary was the best DJ / Pianist she has seen at a wedding!
If you can, use Gary or anyone at About Music Pro, they will give you a great party, but more importantly, it will be EASY. For you grooms out there, easy means less stress for your bride!
Gary and the party he made was one of the best parts of our wedding.
Thank you Gary

Gary was our Bandleader and DJ for our wedding at the Hyatt San Diego. He and his band did a awesome job with the whole event. Before the wedding, Gary was very organized and covered all the important details we didn't think of but because of his experience he added the touches that made it an incredible experience. The flow of the party music and styles were excellent. The transitions between events, and the announcements were all exactly what we wanted at our wedding. I now really understand why Gary Rich has so many 5 star reviews! Gary and his team made our day one of the most memorable days in our lives. Thank you so much!
We met with several DJ's prior to choosing Gary Rich to be our musician and DJ for our wedding. From the first meeting with him, we knew he was our guy. He was professional and seemed dedicated to helping us having the best wedding we could have. While my husband and I knew we wanted great music, we had no idea how to structure the music for a wedding. He explained about a wedding should have four musical themes, ceremony, cocktails, dinner and dancing. We gave him four theme ideas and Gary took our recommendations and ran with them. Gary has an amazing ability to cater his music to a wide variety of people and kept everyone on the dance floor, young and old until late in the evening. He went above and beyond for us, even willing to do overtime so that he could keep the party going. Two months later, we are still getting compliments on the music. In the craziness of planning a wedding, Gary made everything easy. We feel so fortunate to have found him. Hire this guy, he's amazing!!
We had About Music Pro provide music for our wedding a in January this year and we are so glad we chose them!! Gary was our DJ and musician, he went above and beyond our expectations in both customer service up to and after the event and amazed with day of entertainment, so easy to work with. Gary created a fun atmosphere that flowed through the night perfectly; everyone was dancing and had an amazing time! I highly recommend Gary and his team. Thanks for making our night fun and memorable!
Gary was our music performer and director for our wedding this year. He provided a string quartet for the ceremony, a jazz trio for the cocktail hour and a 7-piece band with a DJ/MC plus lighting for the reception. Gary was hands on every aspect of the music and agenda. Our wedding was incredible our guest raved about how great the music was! Our wedding was on a weekend of a rainstorm, which caused a lot of stress and worry. After speaking with Gary, he was able to give us reassurance and confidence that all the entertainment and equipment will be just fine and that should be the least of our worries. The day of the wedding everything worked out even better as imagined and Gary handled the entertainment outstandingly despite the weather. We would like to thank Gary as the Band leader, DJ/MC and musician and his band for their professionalism!
We booked About Music Pro for our wedding music in January and couldn't have been happier!! Gary and his team are awesome! We had guitar and violin for the ceremony they did every songs we requested were played flawlessly, it was so beautiful. I had tears in my eyes as I walked down the isle. Gary was our DJ/MC for the night and he rocked it! The reception was like we were at a club in the city- but better! Gary took our requests and also mixed his own songs based on the very eclectic mix of songs we had. Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night! Our only regret? The night had to end. You must go with this crew - you won't be disappointed!
Thank you Gary!!
Gary did an amazing job at our wedding. He was so easy to work with, very positive and re-arranged his schedule to accommodate our needs. From the moment we first made contact with him months before the wedding date he was professional, easy to communicate with, very upbeat and was hands on during the planning process. He checked in often the weeks leading up to our wedding and totally got what we were telling him we wanted. He got it perfect! During the wedding several guests said to us both how they really liked the music choices and the vibe of the night. That was all Gary. We basically just told him the genres we like and he took it from there. We highly recommend About Music Pro to anyone! They will certainly do a great job!
DJ Gary was absolutely awesome! I think one of the biggest compliments we received from guests was how they thought we had one of the best wedding DJs they'd ever seen. His ability to read the room is top notch. Gary made us very comfortable that he was 100% invested in giving us a great experience, It was great to work with a true professional DJ!.
Our wedding day was awesome thanks to About Music Pro!. There were a few things that I wanted to make sure we didn't skimp on and that was our wedding DJ and musicians. I wanted to make sure that our music was unique and special to us. From the ceremony through the reception, and I'd be able to connect with my DJ and musicians on musical taste. After looking into About Music Pro, I had good feeling about Gary the owner. He was so responsive and helpful through the entire process, any question I had he would answer in a heartbeat. We talked briefly about what kind of music I liked and he suggested Guitar and violin for the ceremony and cocktail hour and DJ for the reception. That worked incredibly.
We talked with Gary about one month before, he understood right away what we wanted and was so easy to work with. This whole process was so easy and our wedding day was a blast. The music was spot on and the dance crowd was happening all night. You know you have a good DJ when he got our conservative German parents onto the dance floor (never expected that). Haha, I wouldn't change my decision on this for the world and I recommend them fully for anyone’s wedding needs. Thanks you About music pro team!
The Blue Daddy’s band was amazing! They made our wedding so personal and special, and we absolutely loved having them be a part of our special day. Gary really helped us figure out the timeline, our ceremony music, dance music, and everything in between. They made each transition seamless, and I don't know what we would have done without Gary and the Blue Daddy’s! We would definitely use them again, and would highly recommend About Music Pro and the Blue Daddy’s if your looking for great live music:)
About Music Pro helped make our wedding amazing! They brought a level of professionalism that can't be beat. Beforehand, Gary met with us to help with the planning of our wedding. We immediately knew that he was going to be great at handling the events at our wedding. Gary gave us many options and made it super easy for us. He was at the venue early to setup and It was such a relief on our wedding day to know he was prepared and we were in capable hands. I can highly recommend About Music Pro!
DJ Gary made a huge impact on our wedding day, and we can't rave enough about him. We'll give it our best shot though. Gary met with us before our wedding, took all of our suggestions no matter how random, and filled the gaps perfectly with his own ideas. He is very professional! His music choices are creative and flow perfectly and he was brilliant at "reading the room." We are so thrilled that we found him and that he was available on our date. Our wedding day wouldn't have been the same without him. Thank you so much!
About Music Pro provided music for our wedding. We were extremely happy! Gary was our DJ and pianist and he did an amazing job! He was very polite and engaging with everything. He played beautiful piano at the ceremony and cocktails, we had many comment on what an exceptional talent he was. All the music selection was exactly what we wanted and the atmosphere was tremendous! The music Gary played led the to several dance offs during the reception we had an incredible time that we will never forget! Thank you guys! Especially thank you Gary!
We used About Music Pro for our wedding a couple weeks ago. The process was very simple. The timing of the ceremony and reception music was perfect. The music selections he added fit in perfectly with our style. Our DJ/MC was great! He announced all the events that made the party flow nicely. Most of people at our wedding were on the in the dance floor throughout the night. One of the best parts was he played the songs we wanted and left the ones off that we did not want played. Awesome experience!
We hosted a wedding in downtown San Diego this past month. We used About Music Pro and could not have been happier. We had Gary as our DJ and musician he was amazing. He was very professional and high energy DJ and musician. He had absolutely everyone on the dance floor. Including my 90-year-old grand mother. He gave us a heads up on every event before it happened. Gary really ran the whole reception from wedding party entrance to first dance, cake cutting, garter and bouquet toss. He made sure that the dance floor was full and everyone had a great time! He made the night and we are so happy he was part of our special night!
We used About Music Pro for our reception in San Diego at the Hotel Del. We were very happy with our our musician and DJ. He kept our guests on the dance floor all night, and everyone had a great time! He played everything we asked him to (and didn't play anything we specifically asked him not to play), and the company itself always responded timely to all of our communications. We don't live in San Diego, they made out of town planning super easy We would use them again and recommend them. Thanks again for making our wedding reception a great party!
Our DJ and musicians from About Music Pro, Were purely phenomenal they exceeded all our expectations!
As a company they were very easy to work with -- specifically Gary Rich. He was helpful and very resourceful he match us to a DJ and musicians with all of the qualities we were looking for. There was a point in the wedding that somebody said to me, "WOW !! -- I don't think anybody's NOT on the dance floor right now." Enough said. They were awesome!
My husband and I were really excited to have Gary as our DJ/MC at our wedding. We saw him at a friends wedding and knew he would do an awesome job! He put a lot of effort and priority in making sure we had a great party for our friends and family. When we arrived, Gary Rich pronounced all of the wedding party names correctly and smoothly transitioned from our entrance song to our first dance song. He picked the perfect music for our Rat Pack/crooner request. He did a great job adjusting the schedule when we got a little behind, but also kept things moving along at a good pace. My husband and I and our friends love to dance, and Gary played so well to the crowd. He played every song on our must have list, but he also took really fun requests from our friends. Our friends are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding, and Gary was a huge reason for that.
I am so glad my husband and I chose About Music Pro for all of our music at our wedding. Gary, the owner, was so quick to get back to me whenever I needed information or suggestions. It was great that they had live and DJ combinations packages so I could get all my music in one spot. Our string trio for the ceremony and cocktail were awesome! Our DJ/MC was very organized and helped with the events we had planned. He helped make our day a truly memorable one that we will always remember. What a great time we had! I've already recommended him, and will continue to recommend him to co-workers and friends. Gary met with us twice before the wedding, once for a reception planning and once for our music selections. He was so friendly and he immediately got the exact type of music we wanted at the ceremony and reception. Thank you!
Awesome Music Company! These guys did an outstanding job! With Gary managing the music and the coordination side and DJ Ed performing the DJ/MC duties, we had many compliments about the music! Gary was extremely responsive to our input! Ed was adept at managing requests, and a wiz on the tables. It was so great to relax at our wedding and have fun knowing everything was taken care of!
Gary went above and beyond what we had expected! We knew he was totally in sync with our style of music and was super flexible with coordinating very last minute requests that popped up hours and even minutes before our wedding. He provided a string quartet for our ceremony that he was part of that was incredible! I have total praise for Gary and his crew they were able to accommodate so many unexpected surprises so flawlessly. The energy level was off the charts and we've had guests tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to! I'm confident that without Gary that would not be the case. We will definitely hire About Music Pro to do all events and parties we throw in the future.
We are so glad that we chose About Music Pro! They truly lived up to all of their great reviews! We had a string Trio for the ceremony and cocktails. They played every one of our requests beautifully! Gary was also our DJ/MC for the reception and was incredible at keeping the party and events going. They created a perfect wedding and reception. Thanks you so much to Gary and his crew. You were all awesome!
My husband and I Hired About Music Pro for our wedding this year and had opportunity to work with Gary and his 5 piece band they were by far, the best wedding band we have seen out of the many wedding and events we have attended over the years. Gary and his band take their work very seriously and it shows in the results they get on the dance floor. There is a unique blend of fun and professional in there performance. Gary was an excellent MC when his presence is required, and when it comes to the music! The whole night was magical.
The band covered a wide rage of musical styles and can read the dance floor to keep the party going.
I would highly recommend Gary and his band (I already have) if you want a incredible dance party at your wedding!
We hired Gary DJ/MC for our wedding at the Torrey Pines lodge in April of this year. He nailed it. Not only is he a fantastic guy all around, he fulfilled our wish to have a truly epic night of dancing. At the end of the evening our wedding planner summed it up as follows: "One of the most enthusiastic dance parties I have seen. Everyone was jubilant!" Thanks again DJ Gary!
My husband and I had such a great experience working with Gary from About Music Pro DJs and musicians for our wedding! He was extremely flexible and responsive, as well as instrumental in performing and setting up sound equipment for the ceremony and reception speeches. The music was inspiring, and no one could stop dancing! My dad and mom and our friends were loving the song "Uptown Funk" that he played and, of course at the end of the night, people were wanting "one more song!" - Gary knew what to do... ending the night with a sing-a-long to "Don't stop believing" was such a fun moment! Thank you again!
Our DJ/Musician Gary Rich was by far the best wedding DJ/Musician ever. Every part of the evening was the musical embodiment of a perfect wedding -- from the quiet music that was playing as the guests arrived, to the never-want-the-night-to-end dance party that had even our parents dancing until the last song. The whole night Gary was playing all the right music and moving the party along so everyone was had a good time! Thanks so much, About Music Pro -- you made our wedding an absolutely unforgettable event.
About Music Pro was so helpful and fun to work with! Our Band, "The Blue Daddy’s", were awesome, and Gary Rich was so flexible and helpful and organized. In spite of my lack of direction, Gary and his band members made our wedding exactly what we'd imagined it would be. They accommodated all of our requests and our guests were raving about how perfect and fun the band was. To show how flexible Gary was, he became our DJ when the band took breaks and that really kept the party moving! Overall, About Music Pro is a very professional, approachable, reliable, great option if you're looking for a band with a DJ!!
Gary Rich delivered nothing less than perfection at my May 29th 2016 wedding. Preparation with him involved nearly countless emails between the two of us, some of which I was definitely embarrassed to send at the most stressful points of wedding planning - but throughout it all Gary was calm, cool, and collected. We also were able to have an awesome meeting in downtown San Diego he suggested, which is now a go-to place for my now-husband and I every time we go downtown. The day of, he acted as wedding planner and kept everything "on track". While we enjoyed it all, stress free, thanks to him. If we ever have another occasion to need a DJ/MC, I know who we will call without hesitation. Thank you for everything!!!
We hired About Music pro for our wedding in May 7th 2016. They were absolutely awesome throughout the process. We worked most closely with Gary and he was excellent. We met by phone with him twice, and also found him to be very responsive by email. We had lots of questions and even some special requests that were all taken care of, such as asking him to shorten and loop our processional music. Our guests loved his DJing and his professionalism in making all the announcements. He also played phenomenal piano for our dinner hour--we received tons of compliments and were so happy with the service.
One of the best decisions I made for our wedding was to hire About Music Pro for my wedding. From start to finish, it was an amazing and stress-free experience. Right after we met Gary (owner) both my husband and I knew they was the right fit for us: relaxed, fun and helpful. And we were right! The dance floor was full the entire night - with everyone from our 5-year-old niece through to my 90-year-old grandpa. They was super helpful in getting us ready for the big day and they were a star during the ceremony and reception(creating the exact feel we wanted). I would hire About music Pro again in a heartbeat. So, so, so amazing!
Gary Rich is a wonderful guitarist, pianist and DJ ... I didn’t have a lot of experience hiring a musician and DJ and Gary made it easy! From the first time we met I knew he was the right choice for our wedding. He was very helpful with our agenda and choosing our songs. When it came to our wedding day he played classical guitar for our ceremony and reggae guitar for the cocktail hour. He then switched hats and became our DJ/MC for the grand entrance and first dance. During the dinner hour, he played piano and all of our favorite jazz standards that we had requested. We were blown away by his versatility and professionalism. I would recommend him for all events. He helped make our day incredible and we are eternally grateful! Thank you so much Gary!!!
Gary is a wonderful musician and DJ/MC He preformed at our wedding and did an incredible job playing all our request songs and really kept the party going. It was a great stress-free experience! He arrived on time and set up quickly and really helped us coordinate the whole day from the wedding through the reception. We requested a song at the last minute to be played for the processional and he learned it and played the song beautifully! I highly recommend him!
Nothing could rival how beautiful the music was at our nuptials and reception. Communication leading up to and throughout the event was second to none. Gary was skillful at performing the acoustic version of "A thousand years" for us to walk down the aisle to. I would hire About Music again without hesitation for any future events. The high light of out wedding was the music. Thank you so much!
Gary played the most beautiful music at our wedding ceremony. Hearing the guitar as people started to arrive had such a calming effect. I knew we were in good hands! Most of what he played was classical works, which we requested, and it really made our ceremony feel unique.
Gary is a superlative professional, and exactly the type of person that you want playing and running the show at your wedding.
He then readily switched hats and became our DJ/MC for the reception. He guided us through the whole event seamlessly making all the announcement and playing all our requested songs. He prompted us on every event and made sure all the important players knew what was about to happen with ample warning. (best man, maid of honor, parents, us) Gary did a awesome job and my sister is already planning to hire him for her wedding next year.
We had Gary Rich and his band, "The Blue Daddy's", at our wedding and they were incredible! They really knew how to adjust the song choices to keep the crowd on the dance floor. Gary was a great MC and coordinator and helped get all of the important segments of our event done in a timely manor. It was so much fun to have a live band put an original twist on all our favorite songs. I would hire them again in a New York minute. I have already recommended them to my cousin for her wedding. Thank you so much.
Fantastic! About Music Pro was so quick to respond to my emails and phone calls they were so helpful. I was planning my wedding from New York and they were so incredible to work with. I had many ideas and truly appreciated their input. They made it easy to coordinated such a Hugh event. The whole event was seamless because our guests had such a great time!
They were so organized with the timing of everything and always checked in with me to see if I wanted to make any adjustments to the agenda I provided them. They can definitely read a crowd and moved the party to a new level. That is so crucial for a DJ/MC and musician! Highly recommend.
About Music Pro was super easy to work with throughout the whole process and most importantly the day of our reception. Everything sounded great, and we are so happy and grateful we chose them for our wedding. Our 200 guests had an incredible time and they were able to handle all requests from our guests and us. Super job About Music pro! Thanks!
Best DJ and musician ever!! DJ/musician Gary was one of our best wedding choices. So many people complemented us about him during our wedding. He gave us great advice throughout the planning process, He also advised us on which songs that we requested would be the best dance songs. He also recommended several top 40 and classic songs to insure that all age groups would have a great time. He was very accommodating throughout the whole process and had a good plan for ensuring a successful evening. He helped us with the agenda and timing of all the segments. He also knew how to gauge the audience's tastes. What a great party we had thanks to Gary from About Music Pro!
A sensational success! is how I want to start my review for About Music Pro! They were simply fantastic! The service and attention that we received from them was superb! My friends and family danced so much that they didn't want to leave the dance floor. The music selection was great and Gary really felt what the public wanted to hear and dance to. Gary was so helpful with the day of coordination! We felt that we didn't have to worry about anything because he took a great control of all the important events and kept the party moving according to our request!
Gary, thank you so much! You were way more than what we were expecting!
I have many good things to say about DJ & Musician Gary Rich. He did our wedding at the Marriott in down town San Diego and it was absolutely amazing! Gary was extraordinarily and versatile musician and DJ., He was able to play all our requested songs and add similar type songs to make it one of best parties I've ever been to in my life. He was incredible, understanding and knowledgeable in learning about the vibe we wanted to create, and then nailing it. If you're getting married in the San Diego area, hire him immediately!!!!
Gary:) Thank you so much!
From the moment I first met Gary from About Music Pro I knew that he was going to do a great job. My husband and I were trying so hard to plan our wedding and with the help of Gary, he was always there with encouragement and great ideas. Our guests were very happy that he played all genres of music and even took request. Gary did a incredible job and thanks to him our wedding and reception was one of the best times in our life!
A friend of mine recommended About Music Pro to do my wedding and the band was awesome!. They really kept the party pumping, and also helped with the agenda and flow of the party. So I recommended them to do a friend's wedding. I attended her wedding and they did incredible job at her wedding to. The music was great and the announcements were fluid. I went home saying "that was a fun wedding!. Did I mention they were a great and professional group at my wedding to? I’ll continue to recommend them to all my friends and family.
Gary is fantastic. He is easy going and yet, totally organized. I was busy down to the wire for our wedding and Gary had my back when it came to the music. I told him what songs I wanted for the important things (processional, first dance, etc.) He had every song and the exact version. He saved me hours of time, which in the world of wedding planning, is priceless. I only met Gary for the first time at our wedding, I felt like he was a friend that was there to make my wedding fun for us and our guests. I would recommend him to everyone that is looking for a fun, professional DJ and musician at their next event.
I recently worked with About Music Pro for our wedding reception. Gary was amazing with communication and really took the time to figure out which DJ/MC and musicians would be the best fit for us. We ended up going with DJ Ed and a string trio. They were all awesome! The string trio played our exact requests flawlessly at the ceremony and cocktails and Ed was very professional and definitely kept the party vibe going all night. I would absolutely recommend About Music Pro for all weddings and parties!
We had About Music Pro for our wedding and reception music and they were terrific! They were easy to work with, worked well with our planner, played all the music we asked for and listened and played all our guest's requests. We interviewed several other DJ company’s, but About Music Pro was by far the most professional and instantly we knew we wanted to work with them. I would definitely recommend them!!
We had Gary Rich as Guitarist, DJ/MC and his 5-piece band for our wedding. We were absolutely thrilled with his service. He was a super nice guy! He had a very professional attitude, and played all our favorite music. He did a great job directing the feel of the party and introducing people who were giving speeches and timing all the event perfectly. Highly recommended About Music Pro and Gary and his 5-piece band were excellent!
DJ/ Gary Rich rocked our wedding! He provided guitar for the wedding ceremony and DJ/MC for the reception. He kept the whole crowd dancing all night long. Gary arrived early and set everything up before the ceremony started, He knew how to feel the crowd, and was a wonderful MC!
About Music Pro is awesome and Gary Rich provided exceptional customer service and follow through as well.
Thank you for making my wedding a party of a lifetime!
Gary Rich performed at our wedding and did the most amazing job! He played everything we asked for and more, and even minutes before my father daughter dance, he was able change our song and never missed a beat. Gary was extremely professional, meeting a month ahead of time with us to make sure they knew what direction we were headed with our music and agenda choices,
Gary was an amazing DJ/MC. All he wants to do is make your event perfect. I am extremely happy with the service I got! Thanks Gary :)
We had About Music Pro do all the music for our wedding and reception, and they made the night so much fun! All of our guests were commenting about how talent and professionalism they exhibited. They did a great job choosing the best songs, at the right time, which kept everyone dancing! They even were able to come up with some obscure songs that were requested by our guests, and everything flowed perfectly throughout the event. I would 110% recommend About Music Pro and would use them again when I have another need!
Thanks to Gary Rich, at About Music Pro, my wedding was perfect! We had Gary play ukulele for our ceremony and cocktails and DJ/MC for our reception. The music at our ceremony and
cocktail hour was exactly what we were looking for a Hawaiian/Island feel. During the reception the dance floor was hoping all night long. They had all the right music and with perfect timing. We could go to Gary in the middle of the dancing with a rare song request and he would have it.
I was so impressed by the professionalism of this company and how they met all of our needs. All requests made by our guests was made and everyone was highly impressed. Not to mention how awesome the prices were! I will always refer friends and relatives to About Music Pro for weddings and parties. Best musician and DJ hands down.
I'm going to add to the consistency of rave reviews for About Music Pro. They made party planning easy. Communication with Gary was prompt and professional. We had a string duo for ceremony and cocktails they were exceptional musicians! During the reception he DJ played all our favorites and my guests wanted to know how I found my DJ and musicians. I rarely give reviews but thought these guys deserved another 5 star +++ write up!
These guys are awesome! They provided a guitarist for our ceremony and DJ for our wedding and were professional, affordable and just awesome! Very easy to work with and we loved every single song that was played at the ceremony and reception. We had a very diverse crowd and everyone ended up dancing thanks to these guys!! Our best memories from our wedding are of dancing along with the music these guys played!
About Music Pro did a fantastic job and everyone had fun and danced all night We had a large variety of guests, some older people who like to dance to Latin music and swing, and a big younger crowd who wanted club music. Gary Rich walked the line beautifully, and everyone had a blast. He also kept the volume just right - loud enough to keep the party going, but low enough that the older people could hold a conversation. I had a lot of song requests for About Music Pro and he did a great job, I'm delighted that my cousin recommended them to me, and would recommend them to anyone!
I used About Music Pro for my wedding. I researched a lot of companies and I really think I got a great deal with them. They also did my sister's wedding. I had an incredible string trio for the ceremony and cocktails and Gary Rich’s 5-piece band and DJ/MC for the reception. They were great and flexible with all our music and agenda requests.
Gary was the bandleader and DJ/MC and he was awesome! We are so glad that we went with them!
EXCELLENT service from beginning to end! Everyone really had a great time and it all came together only because of the DJ and musicians. I received calls back and responses to my emails immediately. They were punctual,and gave us the best value for the price. They had an extensive music selection and were responsive to our guest's requests. Each communication with them was friendly and they were professional in every way! Thank you About Music Pro!
Our DJ from About Music Pro did a fantastic job with our wedding. There were more than 200 people at the event and he had the dance floor filled all evening! He was fantastic at reading the crowd and was able to keep the party alive and fun! I have held several large events and would highly recommend About Music Pro for your next event! He was very responsive, a true professional, and easy to work with.
As a DJ/MC, I highly recommend Gary! He was very professional, arriving early, periodically checking in with us to make sure everything was going well, and he did a fantastic job with the announcements. His mixing skills were outstanding and many guests complimented us on how great he was. We asked for help with song selections for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and the ones he suggested were perfect and the dance floor was packed all night. I would hire About Music Pro again in a heartbeat!
Gary Rich at About Music Pro was recommended to us by our wedding planner, and he truly is a fantastic musician, and DJ/MC for our San Diego wedding. We had a string trio for our ceremony, a jazz trio for our cocktail hour and a 5 piece band with a DJ for our reception, Gary was involved in every aspect of the music, he was exceptional at determining the room's atmosphere and enhancing it with excellent music choices and appropriate volume levels. My husband and I are big dancers, we couldn't stay off the dance floor. Gary is a very versatile entertainer he put together a very original event that we will cherish the memories for the rest of out lives. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, he was friendly, helpful, and extremely professional. We couldn't recommend him more highly.
Gary, the owner, and Ed, our DJ/MC and Eric, our guitarist, were all-fantastic to work with. Owner Gary listened to what we wanted and paired us with DJ/MC Ed and Guitarist Eric. We met again and he gave us insightful and thoughtful suggestions for our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. We were very impressed with the quality and the professionalism of Gary, Ed and Eric. Cheers to all, for a job well done!
We hired Gary from About Music Pro for our wedding and he was truly amazing! He was extremely professional and accommodating, and was the perfect musician and host to our wedding. When it came to getting people on the dance floor, he was a great party motivator. He kept the party going all night long. He was also able to perfectly capture all our music taste based on the music list we provided prior to the wedding. We got many compliments on what a great DJ and musician we had and can't wait to refer him and About Music Pro to others!
We hired About Music Pro for our wedding ceremony and reception and the entire experience was great. Throughout the process we met with Gary to review all applicable details. He made the process completely stress free. Gary is clearly an expert in his business and helped us plan the music as well as kept the flow of the entire reception. On the big night Gary was, in a nutshell, the best wedding DJ and guitarist I'd ever seen. As the bride, I may be biased, but we had multiple guests comment on how great of job that Gary did.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend About Music Pro and Gary for a wedding reception or any other event.
Gary is the reason that our wedding day was so perfect! You can tell that he has a lot of passion for what he does and he really knows what to do. We loved all of his suggestions! Every single request that we made was accommodated down to every detail, and he was very attentive throughout the day. Our guests talked about how packed the dance floor was and how great the music was. What you want most on your wedding day is for your guests to remember how much fun they had, and it is because of Gary that we can look back on that day and say everyone had a blast! We would absolutely highly recommend him!
You can see from Gary’s reviews that he is well loved. It's been four weeks since our wedding and everyone keeps talking about how great it was. We attribute it to Gary! He played awesome piano and then, as a DJ, lots of hits for all ages. If you want an awesome wedding that your friends will love, and you want a personal and professional musician and DJ ,Gary is your man! Thank you Gary!
Gary from About Music Pro was the DJ and musician for our wedding and he was incredible! We met with him before our wedding and he was very easy to work with. Most importantly, he managed to seamlessly integrate our genres of music ('90's for my wife and current hip hop for myself plus other top 40) into an excellent play list that never once had a down moment. He also played guitar for the ceremony and cocktails and was excellent. I recommend Gary Rich and About Music Pro to everyone!
When it comes to hiring a wedding DJ, I cannot imagine a better experience then we had with About Music Pro.
Gary Rich was our DJ. He listened to our likes and dislikes, explained the process to us, and made sure we knew what to expect. He was able to figure out our musical tastes from the huge request list that we gave him, and he was patient and tolerant.
His emcee skills were top-notch and he really got the crowd going on our entrance. He facilitated our agenda flawlessly and we will forever be grateful!
We got everything we asked for, and more, from our DJ/MC, Gary Rich, who performed at our wedding. The party was unstoppable! People are still talking about it. We had a ton of compliments from our guests about how great the music was and how well it was mixed. The dancing never stopped during the reception and I definitely recommend About Music Pro for an awesome guaranteed party! Gary is totally worth it and he was super professional and knew how to throw the bash of a lifetime! Thanks DJ Gary Rich!
Gary Rich rocked our wedding! From the initial planning and conversations to the wedding night, Gary was an absolute pleasure to work with...in addition; he's an amazing DJ, emcee and guitarist. We gave Gary a challenging list of requirements that included integrating Latino music, a first dance medley of 2 songs, and a few classics that needed a charge-up. Gary flawlessly executed and exceeded our expectations. Everyone at the wedding had a great time. Thank You!!!
My husband and I had crazy high expectations for the music at our wedding. Gary, from About music Pro, surpassed them with flying colors. We had a guitar and violin duo for the ceremony and cocktails. We had multiple guests ask us how we were able to find such a great DJ and musical duo with such great music selection. We, of course, had a list of songs we wanted to hear that we gave him beforehand, but Gary was able to pull from that short list our general vibe and nailed it perfectly. For us, he hit everything from current radio pop and hip-hop hits all the way back to the classic soul recordings that inspired them. Throughout the pre-planning process, he was completely professional and easy to work with. We'd readily recommend him for anyone getting married or just trying to throw a killer dance party!
A shout out to Gary and About Music Pro. He was our DJ/MC and pianist and provided a great string trio for our recent wedding ceremony and reception. Gary was incredibly kind, helpful, and professional throughout the entire process (regardless of how many times we changed our minds about things). He was amazing as a pianist and DJ/MC. I look forward to using him again for future family events!
Gary did an amazing job at our wedding. He is by far one of the Best DJ /musicians I’ve ever seen. He made our whole event run smoothly. Everything was timed perfectly! All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music and everyone was dancing (even those who normally don't dance!) He worked with us every step of the way to make sure that the music reflected our style and would still be fun for everyone.
A friend at work recommended Gary Rich. He was very professional, on time, and incredibly responsive. We used him for both our wedding and reception. He picked the perfect mix of music for each, was able to keep the energy up for the entire duration of the event, and even created a custom mix for our wedding. We loved working with him, and the event was extremely successful. He did a fantastic job!
Having About Music Pro at our wedding exceeded all expectations we had. Along with the flawless execution of our ceremony with guitar and violin duo, Gary was able to read our crowd throughout the evening. During the reception, he kept them extremely entertained, filled with energy, and on their feet most of the night. Gary’s attention to details, timelines, and his ability to customize his performance to fit our needs make him extremely unique in the highly competitive wedding/event entertainment arena. We recommend Gary and About Music Pro. We would hire them again in a heartbeat!
Thank you, Gary! We really appreciated how dedicated and great you were throughout our Wedding Day! You played every song we love and requested. You got our entire party to dance non-stop all night long! We are so grateful you were able to be part of our destination wedding in San Diego. Music is a great part of our lives, and you made our wedding come to life with all the music played at our ceremony and reception. We were able to utilize your songs played and add them to our wedding video, in which our memories can last a lifetime. I hope everyone gets the opportunity to see you work your magic! Thank you Gary for making our wedding so magical!
We are so happy we went with About Music Pro for our wedding! They were very helpful from the first time we approached them and throughout our wedding weekend. Our DJ even helped us make an incredible dance mix for the performances of our first dance. He was super nice and was very professional and punctual. He showed up at our event early to setup and was ready to get the party started! We loved that he kept everyone out of their chairs and on the dance floor. Our family and friends were really happy to be dancing to their favorite songs! About Music Pro was able to provide us with a great DJ, along with excellent MC services, and lights. We would highly recommend Gary and his team to everyone!
I can only say good things about Gary, at About Music Pro. He was our DJ/MC and pianist he was great from the start. He was responsive to my questions via email, flexible with meeting in person, and excited about the songs we wanted to play. He was great about changing our time frame to an hour later, which really made a difference at the end of the night. He had all the right equipment to make the transition from the ceremony to the cocktails, to dinner, and then to dancing. He took requests at the reception and played them within minutes. His timing was on point as the MC, and kept the night moving forward on time. He had everyone dancing late into the night, and everyone talked about how great the music was!
About Music Pro was recommended by our event caterer as we were having no luck finding a quality DJ & musicians we felt comfortable with and one that was within our budget. They were professional, detail oriented, flexible and very thorough. The musicians played the entire request list we asked for during the ceremony and cocktails. DJ Gary had all our guests on the dance floor and everyone had a great time!. He had a great personality, likable, and is very easy to get along with. We highly recommend About Music Pro services.
I've worked with About Music Pro for more than five years; booking entertainment for wedding, corporate events and private parties. They have always provided top notch entertainment, and have also been extremely helpful in giving great suggestions for each event. So, if you know exactly what you want, or have no idea at all - they are the place to go!!
The most recent event was a 5-day company conference. I needed multiple entertainment for 4 different parts of this conference. I feel like the entertainment that was provided: Live bands, Disc Jockeys and solo entertainers by About Music Pro, "made" these events! They took each part of the conference from just a fun, nice little reception/banquet, to first class event with a "Wow" factor!
From the very beginning of the planning process to the big day , About Music Pro was perfect in every step of the way for our wedding ceremony and reception. The owner, Gary Rich, showed that he genuinely cared about us and that his main goal was to make sure that our event turned out exactly the way we pictured it.
He helped us do an agenda and a time line one month before, and crafted it to the feel and flow we were looking for. He was the guitarist for the ceremony and cocktails & had his four piece band for the reception. They were exceptional and really rocked the party. They all were friendly, professional, and kept the event running smoothly. We had several comments from guests on how amazing the music was. We were extremely pleased with the service we got from About Music Pro!
About Music Pro provided music for our wedding. We could not have been happier! Gary was our DJ & Musician and he did an amazing job! He was very polite and helped guide us through the whole event. I had several obscure requests and he had all of them! He preformed flawlessly at our ceremony & reception. The music selections were exactly what we wanted and the atmosphere was tremendous! Thank you for the great memories!!
Our wedding planner recommended About Music Pro to us, and we are so glad that we went with them. They were very professional to work with, yet they still had a good sense of flexibility and adaptability, and I could definitely tell that their priority was to put the spotlight on us. I would highly recommend About music Pro to my close friends and family. If you are getting married and need a great DJ and/or live music, I would go with About Music Pro.
Gary (owner) at About Music Pro is hands down the best DJ-Musician we have ever experienced at a wedding! He was the DJ and musician for two of my relatives who recently got married and their dance floor was packed all night long. When it was my turn to get married, we knew we had to talk to Gary! We still met with a few other companies, but About Music pro definitely had the best rates and a good vibe. Gary was super friendly and great to work with. We truly feel like he's an expert in his field. Gary was flexible and responsible. He followed up with us when necessary which we really appreciated and he helped us add a few creative touches like songs for the ceremony and for our introductions and first dance. The dance floor was PACKED the entire night and everyone was talking about what an amazing party we had. We gave Gary about 10 "must-play" songs and then gave him the freedom to read the crowd and choose the rest of the music. I've had so many people ask me for his play list because they loved the songs he chose! If we had to do it all over again, he would 100% be our DJ again! You honestly can't go wrong with him!
About Music Pro was fantastic. We hired them based on the great reviews we found online. Every good thing we heard them was true. We met Gary and hired About Music Pro over a year before our wedding. He made the process anything but a chore and kept up with communication. On the day of the event, Gary was timely, professional, and efficient. Besides playing music that kept the guests dancing all night long, he kept us on schedule for the evening. If you are looking for a DJ-Musician for a wedding or any other event, stop your search and go with About Music Pro!
We had Gary for our wedding and reception and he was simply amazing! Gary was our DJ and part of the string trio and he was extremely professional and approachable. He was the perfect host for our ceremony and reception. When it came to getting people on the dance floor, he not only kept the party going all night, but also was able to capture our music taste perfectly based on the sample music list we provided prior to the wedding.b We got tons of compliments on what a great DJ and String Trio we had and can't wait to refer Gary from About Music Pro to others!
We worked with About Music Pro for our wedding and they were spectacular! Our DJ was so high-energy the whole night and made sure he got name pronunciations/order of bridal party, perfect, and the music played was just what we wanted. He kept all of our guests happy with requests, He really did a fantastic job and we got a ton of compliments from our guests. This company was really easy to work with and even gave me the DJ's cell number to get in touch for a last minute detail I needed to confirm. Super job. Thanks again!
About Music Pro is the best. Gary was a great help in planning our agenda and song selections and making us feel comfortable through the whole process. Our ceremony and cocktail guitarist was Eric and he played our entire request list flawlessly. Our DJ & MC was Ed and he was absolutely amazing. Not only is he super friendly, but also he was so helpful leading us through the wedding reception. The mix of songs he prepared was perfect and would highly recommend him. If you read this, Thank you Gary, Ed & Eric.
I wish it was possible to give About Music Pro more than five stars. They were AMAZING! Our DJ & Musician Gary was communicative and excellent at his job. He quickly responded to all out emails and phone calls in the months and weeks leading up to my wedding, and when it came down to the day, he was so engaging as our emcee and ceremony musician and so good at his job as a DJ, that friends and family are still raving about our music to this day (weeks later). Judging from the other reviews, all of About Music Pro DJs & Musicians are wonderful, but I have to say, if you get the privilege to work with Gary Rich, you should know you are extremely lucky. Thank you, Gary!
Gary was the best DJ/MC and musician for our wedding! He was so easy to work with. He definitely got it right. The music at our ceremony and reception was perfect, and our guests were so pleased, even with the music played during dinner! After dinner, Gary got the party started and everyone danced all night. He was awesome and we would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a DJ and musician for their wedding. He was so flexible too- we didn't get him our songs for the father/daughter and son/mother dance until the night before, and he was still able to make sure our night was seamless and flowed just right.
Gary, at About Music Pro was very professional, personable and great at helping us plan our wedding. His music library was excellent, too. When I asked him for some obscure stuff, he had it. He guaranteed to have all my requests, and he did. I would highly recommend him and his company to any of my friends (already have) and to you reading this as well. Can't recommend About Music Pro enough.
Gary Rich was my wedding DJ and Musician and did an AWESOME job! The dancing never stopped and everyone had a blast. We had so many compliments on the music and everyone had a great time. I have memories to last a lifetime!
I would recommend About Music Pro for any event. They were amazing and Gary was a huge musical talent.
For my wedding, About Music Pro did a great job. They understood what I was looking for musically and executed with much success. Their music kept the audience going, longer than I had anticipated (a plus!). Additionally, they followed my instructions to a tee. They were responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. I'd recommend them to everyone.
I highly recommend Gary Rich from About Music Pro. I was impressed by his attention to detail, his skillful guitar playing, and his cool-under-pressure performance as our DJ/MC. He had a positive attitude and calm confidence, which made the party fun and enjoyable. It was a big job and he got it all done perfectly and with a smile. We didn't have to worry about a thing! We’ll never forget what a great time we had on our wedding day. Thank you so much, Gary!
About Music Pro did a phenomenal job at our wedding up in San Diego. They worked with us before the wedding to get an idea of what we wanted and he delivered 100%. There were some sections of the wedding that we were flexible on and they provided excellent suggestions and advice. They were responsive, punctual and extremely professional.
Gary played guitar beautifully during the procession and recession. He did all of the sound for the ceremony and it went off without a hitch. Everyone could hear everything and there was never an instance of feedback. The weddings officiate even remarked about how easy it was to work with Gary and was impressed at Gary’s ability to get the sound set up so nicely. Gary did a tremendous job with his 5-piece band during the reception - he really read the crowd and played music that parents, friends and children all danced to. People got down! It was so fun! Thank you for making our day so special. Jen & Alex.
We found the perfect wedding DJ/MC! My husband is European and I am American, so it was very important for us to find someone who was familiar with music that would appeal to our multicultural guests. We're so glad we found About Music Pro, They were GREAT and kept the party going all night! Our DJ Gary knew what songs to play to keep the dance floor packed! We received many compliments on his music and style. Our venue had some restrictions on sound levels and set up, which initially worried us a bit, but Gary from About Music Pro was able to set up his equipment and make sure everything ran smoothly without any issues.
Oh yea, and he was a really nice guy’s too :)
We had About Music Pro do both our wedding ceremony and our reception, and could not be any more pleased. They were totally flexible with us, and really took the time to work with us on our music. We had several requests and suggestions, and they were able to successfully incorporate those into the program, while still doing an excellent job of keeping the crowd engaged, having fun and on the dance floor. We met a couple of times on the phone to walk through our asks/ expectations and come the day of the wedding didn't have to give the music another thought - we just had a lot of fun. Highly Recommended!!
Gary Rich from About Music Pro was total inspiration for everyone at my wedding and reception. He had Guitar and Violin duo for the ceremony and cocktails he was very accommodating with our music requests and played a lot of our favorites. He was our DJ/MC at the reception & guitarist at our ceremony; I was so glad that the dance hall was large enough for everyone. We were all in the dancing moods that night and the dance floor was packed all night long.. Everyone commented how great the music was through out the whole event. I highly recommend!
Gary Rich was a fantastic DJ & Musician for our wedding! From the minute I contacted him via email to the end of our reception, he was the perfect DJ/MC and Guitarist for my husband and me, with the right balance between professionalism and fun. Gary was easy to talk to, responded quickly to my questions, never pressured us with sales tactics or music selections, spent extra time scouting our venue for the perfect setup, kept guests entertained and dancing, and made our wedding night run smoothly. I would recommend Gary Rich from About Music Pro to any bride who wants a stress-free wedding with vendors she can rely on.
I am so glad a friend recommended Gary from About Music Pro to me. He Played piano for the ceremony, guitar for the cocktails and DJ for the reception he really made our small, 45 person wedding amazing. Our event had wonderful energy the whole night, and about 90% of attendees even danced! (I had been told by numerous people that at most small weddings only a few people dance.)
More importantly, Gary honored our eclectic music tastes. I wasn't interested in hip-hop/pop/rap music, but wanted acoustic guitar, select oldies, etc. I loved the songs he chose! He played many songs from our favorites list, and sprinkled similar, up-beat songs to get everyone moving.
Gary Rich also worked within our budget. He was very reasonably priced and even offered a discount on custom lighting so we had up-lighting and a large Gobo light. All of this added to a wonderful feel at our ceremony and reception. Also, he was a great Emcee, introducing various aspects of the reception (first dance, cake cutting, etc.) without bothering people or being annoying (like I said, I've seen some truly awful DJ's).
Please, consider Gary Rich for your event! He is professional, classy, warm and friendly. I promise you, he will do an amazing job.
Gary Rich was such a pleasure to work with. He was the DJ/MC and Pianist for my wedding and he did a great job. I am a music lover and I love to dance so I had a few requirements for our wedding. I made my own music list, made do not play list, and asked that there were no requests taken from our guests. He made sure to follow all my wants :) As soon as the first song came on the dance floor was packed and stayed that way until the end of the night. He really made our wedding a success.
One thing I really like about working with Gary Rich was how personal he made our communication. I would send him emails with questions and he always came back with, when's the best time to chat on the phone. He made an effort to have interactive communication and it really made my "wedding planning" easier.
About Music Pro provided the musicians and DJ for my wedding and they were damn perfect. I'm still not sure how they pulled it off so well: they perfectly blended all of our music requests and desires (which ranged the gamut of musical styles that they did seamlessly and effortlessly. Indeed, during the prep process they were super easy to deal with -- very helpful during wedding planning when all the other details need to be attended and there's some mini-crisis to deal with. There professional nature meant that we didn't worry about the DJ or musicians being ready for our wedding. Thanks again for a super job well done!
I mean, what can I possibly say that hasn't already been said.. About Music Productions is the end all be all of DJ/LIVE MUSIC companies. Gary, I love you. You put a soundtrack to my dream day and I can't thank you enough. They listen, they care, they take what you LOVE and have the skill to piece it all together in some magical recipe that keeps the people dancing all night. I didn't leave the floor from the first song until the final song because I didn't have to.. the whole wedding was out there. Thank you, thank you, as a bride who may not have the dancing skill, but a passion that can't be beat, you gave me my favorite and most treasured memory.... DANCING MY ASS OFF.. ALL NIGHT! Cheers to you!!
Hands down the Best Wedding Band ever!! My guests raved all night long about how wonderful the music was. The dancing never stopped. Never. Gary Rich and The Blue Daddy’s were one of the best choices we made. Hire About Music productions, You will not regret it :)
The Blue Daddy’s were fun, detailed, took care of everything with zero drama! . BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!
We came to About Music Productions not knowing much. We met with them twice and after leaving each time I knew we had made the right decision. Both times we were there they were very busy. We met with Gary who understood exactly what we were looking for. We had Guitar and violin for the ceremony music. Jazz trio for cocktails and DJ/MC for the reception.
Gary helped everything move smoothly through the ceremony, cocktails, reception introductions, speeches, and dinner portion and then did an AMAZING job with the dance party.
Gary Rich was our wedding DJ and Pianist and he was excellent. All of our guests enjoyed the variety of music that was provided. He was very good at reading the crowd and kept the dance floor full for the entire reception and was a superb pianist for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He was very professional, easy to work with, and paid personal attention to our needs. His prices were reasonable and gave us a discount on our wedding music package. His website was extremely useful and resourceful. I would recommend him to anyone and use him again. J
I got married in San Diego in July and from the day I talked to Gary Rich until the day of my wedding he was amazing. He is and incredible musician and DJ. He was awesome; he got our timeline and songs of your day down to the second. He was so helpful and I honestly couldn't imagine scheduling my big day without him. Gary is so nice and truly cared about your wedding day as much as you do. Thank you so much.
We were married last month "loved" our DJ and musician Gary Rich.
He made our night a fun and exciting party. He was responsive through the planning process, returned calls, reasonably priced, honest and impeccable helping us with the timing of the events for the evening. He knew the needs of the bride and groom and walked us through the night every step of the way.
We chose the modest package and it was wonderful for our needs. The lighting was great and the sound was super. Everyone thought he was great.
5 star DJ and musician we would highly recommend Gary Rich from About Music productions.
Gary was our DJ and had his jazz trio at our Wedding and reception they were perfect! I met Gary two years ago at my cousin's wedding and I've been recommending him to friends and family ever since. Professional, engaging and has excellent taste in music. I look forward to seeing him again in October at my sister's wedding! Thanks again.
I highly recommend About Music Productions! I have worked with them for over four years now on many different events, Wedding ceremony’s and receptions, networking events and charity fundraisers. I have always been extremely pleased with everything from the soloist to 10 piece bands to DJ’s, event planning and more! We have worked together on at least twenty events and I can always count on suburb and professional work. They go above and beyond with everything they do! I love About Music Productions and highly recommend them. I will certainly hire them for my wedding...whenever that may be :)
Gary was our ceremony musician and wedding DJ in San Diego. Our initial meeting with him was great - he was very professional and it was obvious that he has extensive experience as a wedding DJ and musician.
We trusted him on our wedding day for both ceremony and reception music - he totally surpassed our expectations! He knew exactly what to do at all times, played amazing music that matched our taste, and even acted as a coordinator (transitioning between events, making the right announcements, dimming the lights, etc.). I highly recommend Gary as a DJ/musician for any event!!
I would like to thank Gary Rich from About Music Pro for helping us with our wedding ceremony and reception. He was good at working with us giving us what needed and enhancing our plans. He was affordable. He arrived on time and was easy to deal with. He was professional, excited, respectful and fun. Everything I needed he gave us. When things came up last minute, he dealt with the issues easily. Many of our guests commented that the music was "awesome". Thank you Gary Rich.
We could not have been more thrilled with About Music Productions, Gary who was our DJ and Pianist for the night! SO MANY PEOPLE came up to us to tell us how awesome the music that we picked was, and we had to confess that we picked about 10 songs, told Gary what we did and didn't like, and he did the rest! Truly amazing job!
We had our wedding in San Diego this year, and About Music Productions did a fantastic job providing a Guitarist for the ceremony and cocktails and DJ / MC for our reception! Loved the music! And we got quite a few compliments from our guests on the music selection! Extremely professional and personable at the same time! If you're looking for an awesome DJ /musician for your wedding and/or other event, look no further.
Working with About Music Productions was exactly what we were looking for. Gary was our guitarist for the ceremony and cocktails and DJ for the reception, his performance was flawless. We worked with Gary Rich who was so professional and cool and he totally read our dance floor - we had people dancing like crazy from the moment we started until the end with perfect song choices to keep them moving. He made sure everything was organized and we had a call a couple days before the wedding to go over names and the order of things. Definitely use About Music if you want great service (good prices!) and a no fuss DJ/Guitarist that will play great music all night long!
A friend/wedding planner recommended Gary to us, and we could not be more enthused with the service he provided for us, before and during the wedding. He was always very easy to work with, and made the day of our wedding effortless. Our guests raved to us afterwards about how great the DJ/Pianist was, and we could not agree more.
Gary did an amazing job at our wedding. He Played Guitar and was our DJ. He was flexible and met every request we made of him - adapting the music to meet the format of our ceremony and reception. When we were stuck on what to play in certain parts, he came up with great suggestions. He is a wonderful guitar player and DJ and can cover a broad range of musical styles - jazz, classical, funk, rock – top 40 you name it. Would recommend him to anyone planning a wedding and looking for a Great Musician and a Disc Jockey.
I had heard Gary Rich play at our corporate event, and thought he'd be perfect for my cousin's wedding, and he was! He plays Guitar, Piano and Vocal beautifully, and played beautiful music at her ceremony, cocktails and at the reception. I would highly recommend him again!
My husband and I hired About Music Productions for our San Diego wedding. I should first say, that our wedding wasn't the typical wedding because we were having two full traditional ceremonies, some of it outside, some of it inside and it lasted from 2-11. And with all that said, prior to the wedding, Gary was amazing at getting back to us in a timely manner, at helping us find music for our ceremony, and on the day of the wedding Gary was great at providing the best music throughout the day and at handling unexpected situations like a cousin wanting to do a 4 minute dance solo during dinner.
I can't say enough how awesome About Music Productions are. Every single guest that attended our wedding said they had an AMAZING time. The staff at the venue said they haven't had a wedding like ours in such a long time. I partly think that this is because of About Music Productions. I didn't sit down once. I took a moment to survey the room during the reception and EVERYONE was dancing even my dad, and I've never seen my dad even tap a toe before. If I ever need a DJ and a musician in the future, I will be calling Gary at About Music Productions. Thank you guys for helping us great such an unforgettable day!
We highly recommend Gary Rich as a DJ/MC. From the beginning, Gary was always very responsive and extremely professional. We met a month before the wedding to go over all the details and Gary was flexible and listened to all our requests. On the day of the wedding, the music and flow of everything went so smoothly. The music was great!! Gary also Emceed the reception and all went great. Our guests kept saying how awesome the music was - a few of them said they are keeping him in mind when they get married in the future. Thanks for a great evening Gary!
About Music Productions was fabulous throughout the wedding planning process. We had Gary Rich who was extremely organized and efficient the day of our wedding. He played all the songs we had planned out, as well some others that were perfect. He fielded requests and was very responsive the night of the wedding without being in your face or cheesy. We had classical Guitar and Violin at the ceremony, Jazz Piano and Sax for cocktails and a 4-piece Band with DJ/MC for the reception. We were so happy with the music and overall experience. You know it's a good event when people are asking for our musicians name and number after the wedding. We would 100% recommend About Music Productions weddings, specifically Gary Rich Musician, bandleader and DJ.
We just used Gary, for our wedding and he was FANTASTIC! Hiring a Band was the scariest part of our wedding because we didn't really know where to start. We knew that we didn't want a traditional wedding, and when we found About Music Pro we knew we'd found a good company! We met with Gary and discussed the process as well as songs we liked, and he helped us with our time line as well as finding songs for certain events during the evening. He was very accepting of our "must play" songs, and managed to seamlessly work them in to the event! Great Job!! Thanks again.
Absolutely the best wedding music imaginable. My wife Sue and I got married last week in San Diego. Gary from About Music came highly recommended and for obvious good reason. It was so refreshing to have a professional who had everything under control. Gary is so polite and wonderful, his years of experience lead us through the whole ceremony and reception and of course, everything went perfectly. We Had Gary play classical guitar for the ceremony, then some of our Beatles favorites for the cocktail hour on guitar. He did DJ for the reception and added live Piano for the dinner hour. He did the whole event himself. The whole nights music was perfect. Thank you so much!
At the last minute the band for our wedding reception canceled on us. I was paralyzed! Thank goodness for Gary @ About Music Productions. He saved the day. His five piece band was extraordinary. They payed lots of great dance music and made it so upbeat and fun! He also was the master of ceremonies at our party and did a great job keeping the flow of the party going.
We were thoroughly impressed with About Music Productions at our wedding. What was unique and great about working with Gary, was he played Classical Guitar for our ceremony, then played Jazz Piano for the cocktail hour, and then did DJ for the reception. Our whole event was seamless. It flowed beautifully and he played all of our music requests and kept the dance floor packed. Multiple guests approached us to say how great the entertainment was. My husband looks forward to hiring him for his company's next corporate event.
