Libbie B.Photo Booth RentalPerfect!
Lisa A.Photo Booth RentalGene was a true professional! The props were amazing, payment easy, rate affordable, and my family LOVED the photobooth. We are so excited to have had GN Events at our wedding and end up with a file of photos detailing our friends and families having a blast. My brother missed the photobooth time slot, and Gene allowed him a last second photo! This is absolutely something will be talking about for many years to come. 🙂
Patti O.Photo Booth RentalGene set up his photo booth for our annual corporate awards banquet this past weekend. We asked him to set up earlier than he normally would and accommodated everything that we asked him to do. He made up a special logo for the photo strips and all our guests enjoyed the booth!! I would definitely recommend Gene for any of your events! Thanks from all !!
Martha M.Photo Booth RentalGene was great! Would definitely use him again!!
Heidi M.Photo Booth RentalGene saved us when our first photobooth vendor was failing to deliver. He hit the ground running and the very first day we even spoke he got right to work on the custom logo. The logo he created was so perfect for my theme and was even similar to my invites! The booth was a highlight during the wedding, in fact my guests requested him to stay so we extended the time. The quality of the photos were top notch and everyone looked fabulous! Thanks Gene!
Cathy F.Photo Booth RentalGN events were fantastic! Very smooth hiring and contract negotiations. Fair price, they were prompt and set up as promised even with our last minute changes due to our venue. My only suggestion for any future weddings or events that have children in attendance is that the operator would be sure the kids don’t “hog” the booth, and be sure that adults who come to use it get ample time. Half of my album is the sane five kids. I understand that’s not really their job, but it would be a great help since the adults are busy with the actual wedding.
Paul G.Photo Booth RentalI couldn’t have asked for better. Gene was most accommodating and everything went well. The people loved it!

Cyndi W.Photo Booth RentalWe had a rather small reception. But it was a blast! Gene was a big part of it’s success. On a day when so many things happen so fast, it is easy to lose track of what’s next. That’s where a good DJ comes in. Everything was seamless. Plus the photo booth was such fun. A great additional memento for guests to bring home.
Dave K.Had gene at our anniversary party. Would highly recommend that if you need a dj to contact him , very easy to work with and very reasonable priced .
Joshua J.Gene is very professional and has an eye for the little touches. He does his research and plans for everything ahead. You will be very pleased hiring him.
Peter T.Gene has done a great job with his photo booth. I have used Gene in the past for quite a few DJ gigs, and have had other Photo booth companies at the same event. Now with having 2 services from the same company, we are able to save some money. Thanks Gene for all your hard work.

Gene was my DJ for my wedding. He was really great to work with! We were able to meet via Skype since I had a busy work schedule on top of wedding planning. We went over every detail and the whole vibe of the wedding. We did end up having some changes the day of the weddingwith songs/order of the wedding party etc and he worked well with the changes and didn’t get impatient with us at all (he could be thinking it but we didn’t know!) Some guests made requests while there and he was able to add them in for them. Very friendly and easy to work with. I used the photo booth too. The attendant was so friendly and great to work with. We had a lot of kids at the event and she was so nice to everyone! I got a beautifully put together photo book of all my guests at the end of the night and copies of guests pictures that they may have forgotten to pick up. Great selection of props – it was very popular!

We used them for DJ and photo booth. I couldn’t have asked for a better DJ! I got so many raving review about Peter! I only put about 20 songs on the must list and he did the rest. At one point he played a song and noticed everyone starting to leave the floor. It was quickly changed and people stayed on. THAT is an AMAZING DJ! He also made a mix up of 2 song for me to do for my father/daughter dance making it perfect! The photo booth was great they took a monogram I made for the wedding and added it to the strip. The book they made out of the stripes was perfect! Very easy to work with and knows how to do their job well!

We loved Gene’s personality the most. We appeared to be well prepared for the wedding. Once the wedding was there he did a fantastic job with the ceremony music, he helped make it very beautiful for us. Thank you Gene! However there was a minor mishap…he got 2 of thebridesmaids and groomsmen switched up in the order we were to be announced into our reception. He tried his best to correct it but once there the girls decided not to switch their seating spots at the head table. So in reality Gene truly tried to fix it and get his job done the right way. It was my girls who decided not to fix it. The reception area he followed everything on his printed sheet to a tee which I loved. It kept the night very organized. We got quite a few photos with him from our photographer which I absolutely loved and got kick out of it. I truly cannot thank you enough Gene for all of your assistance to make our day very special!!!

Gene was the best. We never had an empty dance floor and he was great at reading the crowd. His website was super helpful and really helped to plan our event. His table was classy and he dressed well for the event. I would highly recommend him!
DJ was fabulous!

Our DJ, DJ Gene was great. We did not want a DJ who took over the show with lots of weird group dances lead by him and props. We just wanted someone who could read the crowd and get people dancing, and that is just what Gene did. He was amazing! Everyone had so much fun!

We used GN Events for our wedding dj and had Gene as our DJ. Everything went off without a hitch. Gene was super helpful in planning the music for the reception. He was even able to use a different song for each member of the bridal party as they were introduced. The dance floor was packed the whole night. Gene knew just how the tailor the music to the mood. I would definitely highly recommend Gene!

He was very easy to get along with and he was funny and charming.
Gene listened to what I wanted, came with extra props for the photobooth, the quality was exceptional, and he was the least expensive vendor (by around $300) that we found, and he made the party a lot of fun! We will spend years laughing at the hilarious photos, and “aww”ing at the adorable photos that we received from the photobooth. We are so happy!!
Gene did a great job at my daughters wedding. He did exactly what we discussed prior to the wedding, at a very competitive rate and in a professional manner.
I would recommend GN Events to anyone getting married. We used them for their photobooth and they were so great! We had a scrap book for our copy of the pictures and they provided props. The memories in that book are priceless. Plus we received a digital copy of all the photos taken! They were so easy to work with. As the bride to not have to think about how that was running was amazing. Again – I would absolutely recommend GN Events and definitely recommend renting a photobooth. It was one of the highlights of our wedding.
GN Events was absolutely awesome! We rented a Photo booth through them! We had so many compliments on how on top of everything he was and how organized he was. After the wedding, that night, we received the scrapbook of all the pictures and messages from our guests! Hilarious!!! To see people, especially older people having a ball inside the photo booth was just awesome! I would recommend getting a Photo booth for a wedding and definitely using this company!!!! Thanks so much!
I have to give 5 stars. We did not give too much advance notice for our wedding reception. Planning the hall, DJ, photo booth, guest list, etc….gets crazy. Having GN Events for our DJ was the best choice for us. The price was great and the quality was top notch. We had our songs picked for certain dances and our no-play list. But, the songs that were needed to fill in addition were spot on. It was almost like he knew exactly what we wanted to hear.
We also used a photo booth for our reception and it was so much fun. I have the flash drive with all the pictures so I was able to upload to Snapfish to create our wedding / reception album.
Gene did a wonderful job being our DJ, I even requested a special music clip for our entrance and he found it. He was very flexible with the location we were going to meet to review all the music. My only slight complaint was that on the music website that you enter all your preferences I could only enter 5 songs on the do not play list even though there was several more I needed to add. In turn, one of those songs started playing during the reception and I had to go up to him and ask him to change it. That was a small complaint other than that Sound of the Times was great to work with and very responsible cost.

Gene was amazing. He met all our needs and was very flexible. When the we(bride and groom) recommended songs, they were the next to play. I would use Gene again anytime if I needed a DJ and will recommend him to all my friends who are getting married.

Gene was great!! He did an after party for us following our wedding reception and he played most of our requested songs plus songs that were requested during the dance. He kept the floor full all night! He was extremely responsive and understanding of our needs. I would definitely recommend him.

I found that he was very open and flexible. He always responded to my questions in an appropriate amount of time, he played all the songs we requested, and he was very professional. I loved the website, it helped out over the months of planning to see what we had to think of music wise for our special day.

We hired Gene Neri for our wedding through The Wedding Studio. For what we needed Gene was just right for our budget. He has an endless list of music choices & if he doens’t have it available he will get it for you. When meeting with him, he has a nice and laid back attitude. He didn’t try to put it in our face, as did other DJs, that he was the best and/or try to impress us with his high tech equipment. We told him about the crowd we were having and what type of style we were looking for to be played during cocktail hour and dinner. His answer was, “I got this!”
Communicating with him was great, he always got back to us in a very timely manor when we had questions. My husband and I did not have enough time to really sit and go through music choices during our planning. My husband was diagnosed with cancer just 6 weeks before we were to say “I do”. I told Gene that we were sorry about not giving him many music choices and that we were giving him complete faith in him because this is what he does. Made just a few minor request and they were ALL met!!!! Put your faith in this man!!! He had the dance floor going all night. Our friends said the next day they were hurting from all the dancing. He takes request, but makes sure they will not kill your mood of fun. I would highly recommend Gene. His professionalism is outstanding and was polite to all of our guest. Two thumbs up for Gene!!! He ROCKS!

Gino, who did the DJ work and setup, did a magnificent job, the music was what we asked for, tasteful, never too loud, appropriate for all events for our wedding reception. He pronounced all names correctly, Emceed professionally, did a spontaneous Karaoke request, He was well dressed, always checked with the bride and groom when we wanted to do anything, Kept the party on schedule, and he definitely put his sweat and blood into his work. I would recommend him to anyone who needed DJ/Karaoke Service.

Sound of the Times was wonderful. Gene was very flexible in meeting with us and handling all of our special requests including a unique playlist for our cocktail hour. From our first contact to the end of our reception, Gene and Sound of the Times took care of everything we needed and more. I would recommend their services to anyone looking for wedding and party entertainment.
Gino was great to work with and was very flexible. He came to our house to go over the playlist which really helped during the hectic final days just before the wedding. He played exactly what we requested and was very professional.
Can’t say enough positive things about him and we will recommed him to our family & friends when they are looking for a DJ.

I first met Gino going to the bars and he was the DJ that night doing Karaoke. I quickly got hooked into the whole Karaoke seen and was going every night that Gino was having a show. Once I had a wedding to plan i didnt think of anyone else but Gino to run it. I remember when Gino would come over to my house to plan with me and my wife. He asked the question “what kind of music do you want played” and i told him “i trust you, play whatever you think is good”. Well he didnt take that for an answere and still made me come up with a list. Even though i knew Gino personally he was very professional when it came to planning his side of things. Since i was a Karaoke fanatic of course i was going to sing a song to my new wife, and Gino made that happen. Everyone I spoke to about the wedding loved it. If anyones looking for a DJ for anything my first response is Gino, he is very professional, affordable and hard working.
