Hi Greg, this is AnnMarie Brucculeri. I had a party with you guys yesterday, May 12th, a Communion at Central Lounge in Astoria. You sent Eddie, I just want to tell you him and the girl that came with him were AMAZING! They were beyond expectations. Everybody was like, " where did you get this D.J. from." They ran out of business cards. I have like 10 people that want to book them. So I just want you Greg that they really deserve a big pat on the back because they did an amazing job with like 32 kids. He had them entertained all night long. And the music was great too. I really just want to thank you for doing a great job.

The company was started by me, Greg M. Legakis, in 1988. At that time it was called Wild And Crazy Entertainment. I am presently the owner and president of Good Vibrations Entertainment.
Let me explain:
As of 1999, we no longer publicly use the "Wild And Crazy" name when contracting and performing parties and events. Here's a little history about me, Greg M. Legakis and where the name Wild And Crazy Entertainment came from and how it evolved into Good Vibrations Entertainment.
When I graduated Indiana State University in 1982 with a B.A. Degree in Psychology I was interested in pursuing a career in advertising. I moved up to a Chicago suburb. After a miserable year of working 11 to 7 at 7-Eleven , I stumbled on a job at a 50's and 60's Nightclub called Studebakers. This was my first formal plunge into the world of deejaying.
The theme at Studebakers was not just oldies music, but much more. As the DJ, I was expected to dance, perform and lip sync continuously to motivate the crowd during the course of the night. The theme also required that managers, hostesses, waiters and waitresses join me "on the bar" or "on the dance floor" every 45 minutes in a choreographed dance routine. It was a blast! The crowd loved it, we loved it, and the club was a huge success.
After a disagreement with management, I moved on to another Studebakers in Louisville, Kentucky where I did the same thing, except with a lot more control over every aspect of the music program. I was hired as the Music & Entertaiment Director.
After about a year there, in December of 1985, I decided to move back to New York and pursue a "real job." However before I left, I was tagged with the nickname, "Wild And Crazy DJ" by a customer who recognized me on the street one day and said, "Hey, arent you that Wild and Crazy DJ from Studebakers?". From that day on, when people would recognize me, but didn't know from where, I'd say, "You know me, I'm that Wild And Crazy DJ that performs at Studebakers."
When I moved back to New York, I bounced around for a while in TEMP jobs and even took classes at NYU in hopes of a behind the scenes Film career. I also had a few internships and even worked for Long Island's News 12 for 8 months.
I thought I was no longer interested in continuing a career as a DJ, until I found that my deep love for music and a generous offer from management enticed me back into the industry.
So in the middle of 1986 I began working in a brand new club in Hauppauge NY called Rio - The Nightclub. The original intent was not to be an oldies club, but at the last minute because of the trend toward Oldies, they changed the music theme to 50's and 60's --my specialty!
For a year and a half, I was the hottest thing around, "The Wild Man at Rio" dancing, performing, sweating and whipping crowds into a bop-til'-ya-drop frenzy.
Toward the end of my year and a half stretch at Rio, patrons began asking me if I did private parties. Before I knew it, I couldn't "afford" to stay at Rio anymore because of all the requests to do private parties. (not to mention a five-fold increase in pay)
I didnt know what to put on a business card, so Wild And Crazy DJ seemed as good a name as any. That's when Wild And Crazy Entertainment officially came into being.
From 1988 thru 1996 I was Wild And Crazy Entertainment. Then in December of that year, I met the owner of Good Vibrations. He was interested in getting out of the business so I bought out the company. Over the next few years I became a little less "Wild and Crazy and decided it was time for a change. In 1999 I adopted the name Good Vibrations D. J. Entertainment full time.
To this day Good Vibrations is a full time business that performs hundreds of events annually.
What A Long Strange Trip It's Been!
Additional Booking Notes
Here's All You Need To Know -
Denise S. - ((((5 Stars)))) "Perfect DJ for my 40th birthday and great with the kids. I wish I had another event coming up just so I could use them again! I've never had so many people comment about how great the DJ was after a party. Greg did the impossible - he kept the dance floor FULL on a Saturday afternoon! We had an 80's theme party for my 40th birthday and he knew just when to mix it up to keep everyone dancing. The best part was when he played Limbo with the kids so the adults could finish eating in peace. But he got everyone right back out on the dance floor when they were finished and having a great time. His prices are very affordable too. Look no further. I highly recommend this company and we will certainly be using them again."

Hi Greg, I just wanted to let you know what a great job Eddie did yesterday! The kids had an absolute blast and many parents were asking how I found your company. Eddie was very professional, helped the party run smoothly, kept the kids entertained, hit on everything my son wanted and was flexible. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Norajean Nelson - Good Vibrations and DJ Greg did a great job at my son's baptism party. There were kids of all ages in attendance and he kept them entertained with music and games. We received several compliments on the DJ and would use Good Vibrations for future events. Would definitely recommend!

Melissa P. - Wonderful DJ from Good Vibrations DJs. Hi Greg, Just wanted to let you know how wonderful Dan was. He worked our daughter's Communion on Sat. All ages enjoyed him and we had a ball dancing. The crazy kids even decided to jump in our sub-zero pool and dance in there!!! Everyone commented on how great Dan was - he was so nice !!!! The party was such a success in large part due to your DJ. I still have people calling me to tell me how great it was. Thanks a million! I'll refer you (and Dan) whenever I get the chance! He was great! Thanks again, Melissa

Erica S. - Great Block Party DJ! Greg, I just want you to know that my neighbors and I thought you did a great job last night. The music was great, but most importantly and the reason we have the block party is the kids had the best time! We thought you not only kept them entertained but you were very attentive to them, knowing their names etc. THANK YOU AGAIN for your performance and for enduring the rain. ~Erica S.

To Anyone Looking for a Great DJ,
It's been almost 4 years since Greg of Good Vibrations DJ'd my daughter, Rachel’s, Sweet 16.
As I said back then, he did a really good job.
Rachel’s Sweet 16 was the first one that I had ever gone to. I have been to several Sweet 16’s in the past 4 years and there hasn’t been ANY that compared to Rachel's. That is until this past Saturday. I recommended Greg to my friend for his daughter, Cassie’s, Sweet 16. My friend, Mike, was very impressed by the professional presentation going into the event. During the party we were both overwhelmed by how PACKED the dance floor was from the very beginning throughout the entire night right to the very last song. Some of these other Sweet 16’s were at very expensive catering halls. My daughter’s was in the basement of a church and this week was at an American Legion Hall. Mike and I saw the interaction between Greg and all of these kids and determined that Greg of Good Vibrations DJ's was the difference between an OK party and a great party.
I would AGAIN highly recommend Greg and Good Vibrations DJ's to anyone looking to have a highly successful event.
