Wedding Testimonials

Josh and Kelly's Wedding

Annapolis, MD

“From the moment we met Tommy, we could tell what passion and energy he brought to his work. While he came highly recommended by another bride to DJ our wedding reception, we knew from the first meeting that he would guarantee a great time on the dance floor. During the planning meetings it became evident to us that his passion for detail transcended into all of the services offered by Tommy Gatz Entertainment to include creating the perfect atmosphere for all stages of our reception with tailored up-lighting and a sound system to fit our venue layout. We became more and more confident that everything would go smoothly on the big day as Tommy and Valerie made themselves available to coordinate and discuss the many details and timeline of our reception in the months leading up to the wedding--even graciously accepting last minute changes and requests from our end. The personal touch of multiple in-person meetings during the planning process was invaluable. With a large wedding to plan, we relied heavily on the flexibility and professionalism of the Tommy Gatz team.

On the day of the wedding, we were able to relax knowing that the event would stay on schedule and that Tommy and his team had everything under control--working closely with the our other vendors when needed. DJ Tommy Gatz and DJ Schemes kept all of our guests energized and loving one song to the next. We’re pretty sure all 180 friends/family were on the dance floor a some point in the evening. We all had a blast and we are still getting compliments on how much fun our wedding reception was--we give most of that credit to Tommy Gatz Entertainment. On top of everything, we love our candid photos taken by Tommy’s crew!  They truly show how much fun everyone was having and gave us an opportunity to see so many great moments that we didn’t get to see in person that night. To top everything else, our short video and cinematography products that captured the highlights of our wedding ceremony and reception were perfection and will be cherished for years to come.  We would recommend Tommy Gatz Entertainment to any couple planning their wedding or anyone looking to put on a worry free and fun-filled event. Without a doubt, hiring Tommy Gatz Entertainment. was the best money spent for our wedding day. "

"Tommy Gatz Entertainment (TGE) did an excellent job with our wedding reception. Everything from working with our song particulars to the logistics at the venue, Tommy and Valerie made our evening as seamless as possible – and WE as the bride and groom didn’t have to worry about transitioning from formal announcements to the cake cutting to all of the dancing! TGE provides a professional service demonstrating attention to detail and organization. We were very thankful for the pre-wedding meetings to go over all of the details to make sure our reception was just how we wanted it to be. Having a “day of” coordinator for the event was such a blessing (I’m so glad that we had Valerie)! In addition to the excellent deejay skills of Tommy, we were very grateful for the candid photographer that ended up getting some excellent shots on the dance floor and many great pictures of our guests. They were flexible to work around our contracted photographers, and that we appreciated. TGE is a great company – if you’re looking for a dependable, personable and experienced wedding entertainment company, look no further!

Thank you again!"

"Picking Tommy Gatz Entertainment for my wedding entertainment was the best decision I made next to saying "yes" to my hubby. Tommy, Valerie, Rachel and all the TGE crew exceeded all of our expectations. I wish we could do it all over again. They helped make our day the best day ever! They are the best of the best. Any and every problem we ran into, Valerie had a solution. Any request we had, Tommy could do it. They work with any crazy schedule. At one point my priest was no longer available that day to marry us and our wedding venue coordinator had  quit the venue that same week. I called Valerie almost in tears. She worked with my venue, my church and even my photographer.  There was literally no wedding drama. I cannot say enough good things about the team at Tommy Gatz Entertainment. Very personable and productive. We were treated like family. They even helped me by assigning me their wedding coordinator(Rachel was wonderful). No bridezilla will be let down. I recommend doing the Cinematography video. I have watched our video countless times. I think about that day all the time. After we showed our video to friends, everyone commented, " I wish we had done a video for our wedding". I'm so glad we did! No complaints or improvements. TGE has it together. Look no further. You will be so glad you did. I sure was."

"Tommy Gatz Entertainment did an absolutely wonderful job with the up lighting and music for our ceremony and reception! The lighting looked fantastic, and really transformed our venue into something better than we even could have pictured. The music was great- everyone was dancing and having a good time. The candid photos taken by Tommy’s photographer were also awesome- some of our favorite pictures from the night came from them! The whole team really did an amazing job- Phil and I are so happy and thankful for all of their hard work!"

"Jerry and I would like to thank Tommy, Glen and Valerie and the rest of the team for making our wedding day such a special day. Without Valerie and her team the day could not have been as smooth. She made sure we were where we should be on time. We didn't have to worry about anything. Tommy did an absolutely outstanding job lighting the tent and the inside room. Down to details like making sure the cake had the right lighting. I hate having my picture taken and Glen made it easy for me. He even has a trick for helping you keep your eyes open in pictures. The music never stopped. We had a wide range in ages and Tommy still had everyone on the dance floor. Not one disappointing moment! Tommy and his team are very special! This was a very SPECIAL day for Jerry and I, we couldn't imagine having anyone else to work with us on our wedding day after working with Tommy and his team. Thank you Tommy, Valerie and Glen! We wish you the greatest success in the years to come you truly deserve it."

"The team was very flexible, and the wedding went exactly as the bride and groom had planned. The music won praise from the guests young and old and it did not interfere with conversation, as was our experience at other affairs. The whole reception flowed, with continuity and every detail was delivered as we wished. We were totally satisfied with the quality of service. Although we were working here with a tough crowd, meaning many guests who did not usually dance, I was astounded by the number of people who were lured out on the dance floor.

All of the group in Tommy Gatz Entertainment are professionals who made the day very easy to enjoy."

"As a bride, Tommy Gatz Entertainment was a dream come true. They are a one stop shop for the most important aspects of your wedding with the highest quality in all areas. They were professional, courteous, and catered to all of our needs. We received so many compliments after the wedding regarding the uplighting and have even been asked by many to provide them with the D.J. information. They even assist the couple in planning the itinerary and were available to attend other meetings in order to make sure everything went smoothly. The photographers and cinematographers went above and beyond to make sure that they captured the entire day. They truly cared that our day was perfect and it was!"

"As a groom, I feel that Tommy Gatz Entertainment was the perfect fit for our wedding. I first noticed Tommy on Black Friday in 2012 when he had all of the shoppers in Nordstrom's dancing around in the store. That is hard to do!!! Tommy and his team were so wonderful to work with. Not only are they extremely talented, but they hold themselves to the highest professional and ethical standards. They attended every meeting and knew every detail of the wedding. The most impressive thing, in my opinion, was that at some of the most pivotal times during the wedding day Tommy's team was at their best... pictures during crunch time after the ceremony, mixing of songs during the reception, keeping everything on schedule, etc. We never had to worry!!! Bottom line...nobody compares to Tommy Gatz Entertainment!"

"I honestly cannot thank Tommy Gatz Entertainment enough for ALL of their hard work and sincere dedication in making my dream wedding come to life. They were a real pleasure to work with throughout the whole entire process of planning 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'.

We used Tommy Gatz Entertainment for their DJ, lighting, and cinematography services, and everything was simply amazing. Tommy (the best DJ around) kept everyone on the dance floor the whole entire time, playing a variety of music appealing to all ages and to both Greeks & Americans. I loved that he got everyone involved and kept everyone on their feet. The lighting was absolutely STUNNING. My jaw dropped when I walked into the hall for the first time; it was so beautifully set up, adding to the elegance of the ballroom. The cinematographers were as sweet as can be. They were there to capture everything from the first moment I saw my dad at the church, to the first dance, to the cake cutting, to the Greek dancing, all the way to the end of the evening. We were blown away by everything and the overall experience was AMAZING.

We were treated like family, instead of regular clients and we could not have asked for a more tremendous group of people to work with. Our wedding day was truly perfect! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Tommy Gatz Entertainment to anyone looking for professional & affordable services for unforgettable evening."
