DJ Gino Guarnere has, as a musician and DJ, done literally thousands of shows for hundreds of thousands of people in his career. A Philadelphia native, he’s been a part of some of the most successful rock, wedding and soul bands in the area. As a keyboard/piano player, vocalist, and front man he has performed throughout the USA and in several countries abroad. His knowledge of music and styles is as diverse as they come, and as a DJ he can rock your dance floor with hard-hitting mixes ranging from Old Skool Hip Hop to Studio 54 classic dance, modern dance, R&B, Ska, Reggae, Oldies or Rock and Roll.
Gino kept in touch with me throughout the process, and we spoke on the phone twice before the wedding. I already had faith in him, but he makes you feel like your wedding day matters as much to him as it does to you! He played all the music for my wedding, including the ceremony, my cocktail hour, and my reception. I even had 2 different locations and he made everything perfect!! He played piano at my cocktail hour and he is phenomenal! During the reception he kept everyone dancing and everyone having fun including my husband and I!! To quote my mom, “he kept everyone rockin!”
My husband and I know Gino played a huge part in making our wedding day so special! We could go on and on with happy and wonderful words, and can not say thank you enough!

A Live Musician for your Event
Gino also does something that no other DJ in the area can do: He brings his red piano by request, and can play your cocktail hour, private event, corporate or holiday party as a live instrumentalist (and vocalist). He plays piano in styles ranging from Sinatra to Billy Joel to Mozart, but can then step away from the piano and bring his club-style mixing prowess to the rest of your party, spinning up a musical cocktail of hits that will have you dizzy by the end of the event. Listen to some samples of Gino playing and singing below. Imagine this at your cocktail hour or after-party!
Want to kick it up a notch? Gino can also break out the microphone and sing if you want a more rowdy, piano bar style for your event. Gino is just as happy to play the piano at the venue, but in those cases he’ll ask that the piano is in good condition and that it be tuned prior to your event.
If you’re looking for something completely different for your event, you should consider bringing Gino and his piano and microphone to your event. You won’t be disappointed and you’ll guests will be signing along before you know it!
I decided last minute to ask Gino to play his piano during cocktail hour. He brings it with him if the venue doesn’t have one! My cocktail hour was outside and he set up his piano right in the middle and played as people were mingling. It was AMAZING. It really helped create a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere before the party really got rocking. It’s such a small extra fee so it is completely worth it! We took photos before our ceremony so I am really glad I got to experience that part myself. It was well worth it.
I told Gino that I didn’t have many specific requests in terms of the type of dance music played and that I just wanted him to do whatever he had to do in order to keep people on the dance floor. Let me tell you! As the bride, I think I left the dance floor for about 5 mintutes, and it was packed all night long. I never thought I would find the time to dance all night, but every time I left, another song would come on and it was one that I just had to dance to! Everyone kept coming up to me while dancing and saying, “This dj is AWESOME! How did you find him?!?!”
Thank you Gino!!! It was the best night of my life.

Three Questions for Gino:
What's your DJ Style?
Can I request you bring the piano?
Can we make requests during the night?
Gino read the crowd well the entire venue and played the songs we asked as well as those he felt we would like. We only requested he play 6 songs on our must play list, the rest we left up to him and he did not disappoint. Sound quality was great and the additional lights made the dance floor come alive. IF you do go with VIP, book Gino and add his piano abilities while trusting his talents at reading audiences. We would highly recommend them.
