DJ Dave Gilman

Hello, my name is Dave. I’ve been a DJ for 25 years. My passion for music started in my early years when my older brother Gary, a professional musician, would consistently make “mixes” for me which consisted of all types of music.

When I finally went away to school at Westfield State University and 90’s dance music was quite popular, I started playing music only to have my dorm room and the hallway outside “packed to the gills” with people dancing.

After returning from school I partnered with a professional DJ company and at the same time opened up my own DJ company. Twenty five years later my passion remains, and I still pack the “dance floor”.

DJ John Hathaway

A unique love and passion for music serves as the foundation for John’s story in becoming a DJ. Since 1996, John has been entertaining the masses with hundreds of private celebrations and appearances in public venues under his belt.

His deep knowledge of music and diverse experience contribute strongly to creating fun and memorable events. Beyond John’s ability to curate awesome musical soundtracks and execute as a talented event host, he values client satisfaction above all else.

His friendly, laid-back, approachable demeanor instills confidence that he will deliver an exceptional music experience that guests of all ages and backgrounds will enjoy. John ensures that client wishes and input are at the heart of his approach to performance.
