“We asked Gonz to provide music and photo booth for our wedding. His professionalism was outstanding and communicated with us every step of the way so we had no doubts or worries during planning. The photo booth was a hit and our guests danced until the very last song. They were still talking about the music a week later!! ”

GONZ THE DJ is the ideal wedding and event services provider. Naturally a considerate and affectionate soul with a passion for music and photography. He strives for customer satisfaction. Don't look at him during emotionally charged wedding speeches as chances are he'll be trying his best to hold back the tears.
"Gonz approached me after one of my own gigs at Sheraton On The Park in Sydney uttering the words "I want to do what you do". Since then he is one of my top DJs who I trust to get the job done professionally and uphold my reputation" - Brett Martin from Sydney Wedding DJs.
Gonz was raised on 80s music when it was, well... still the 80s. Hip Hop was the introduction to DJs and his admiration for DJs has never wavered. From a young age Gonz was experimenting with mixing music to entertain family and friends. Dad's home video mixer was enough for Gonz to mix between his parent's cassette tapes and whatever was playing on the radio.
This is where his knowledge of different music flourished. After finishing high school he joined the team at PartyDisc in Sydney and was sent out to play at parties loaded with CD's of party favourites. He soon learned what worked and didn't work according to the vibe in the room. Since then 'reading the crowd' has become a sixth sense.
Having worked in retail, hospitality and customer service roles since high school he stepped out of his comfort zone and joined the military, and if that wasn't crazy enough, became a family man during that time too. All the while continuing to DJ on weekends.
In the pursuit of happiness and a better work/life balance, the last few years have seen Gonz give into his passion for the Events Industry and Entertainment to focus on growing his brand and business in the Port Stephens, Hunter and Sydney areas.
