We were so relieved to have found Grant. Not only he was very accomodating to the limitations of the venue and made everything work wonderfully, he was also very perceptive of song suggestions and tailored the music choice to our likings. Our guests were out on the dance floor the whole time and everybody had a great time. Also, he can make annoucements in both english and spanish, which was important to us. Thank you for being so awesome, Grant.

Thank you, Maria! Looking forward to a future celebration. =)
Grant Gannon is a great wedding DJ and MC. He is professional, well organized and prepared, and a pleasure to work with.
Once my daughter and her fiancé selected him to do their wedding, he took the time to consult with them and assist in the wedding planning process. He helped them create a music playlist that would be unique to their wedding. He assisted them with completing a master of ceremonies form. He made sure that he knew how to pronounce everyone’s names properly. He then met with us at the venue weeks before the wedding to discuss important details and any house rules the venue might have.
On the day of the wedding, he arrived a couple of hours early to set-up and test his sound system, as well as set up lights, a screen and a projector for a slide show I had prepared for our Father/Daughter dance. When the laptop I had provided him failed to connect properly to our projector, I had all but given up hope that the slide show would occur. Grant went well beyond the extra mile, working feverishly on my behalf, for over an hour and got it to function properly in time for the dance. As a father who had worked on the slide show for months and had envisioned this dance for years, that feat alone made him my hero.
When it came to his job on the microphone, he was superb. He guided everybody through the timeline and dedications planned for the event. He played soothing music during dinner and afterwards, got the dance floor shaking with his enthusiasm and a great playlist of songs that had just about everybody up on their feet. And he did so without overdoing it on the mic or making himself the center of attention. He demonstrated a clear understanding that this wedding was all about my daughter, her groom and their guests.
I would highly recommend his services to anyone who asks.

Born in Miami Beach and raised in Miami Shores, I started playing piano as a toddler. I would listen to the songs in video games, on the radio and in TV shows and learn them on the piano by ear. I finally agreed to classical lessons and then did jazz in late high school and college. I've played with bands since high school and have always loved performing.
I've written and sold scores that have been used in tv shows, games, websites and company commercials/ads. I recorded 2 tracks on Eric Monterosa's album (2008) and have performed live with several professional musicians.
Today I work as a professional DJ/MC and still perform piano at all kinds of events.
