Gary started playing music in a couple small bars in the Atlanta area. When he moved to Hilton Head in 2003 he really became the DJ he always wanted to be. He started playing a Disco & 80’s night at a bar on Hilton Head Island and a Blues & Dance night at the popular One Hot Mama’s which used to be located in Bluffton. In 2008 he landed a weekly gig in Bluffton & played there for 3 years and really became an awesome DJ.
Gary says, “As long as I can remember I always wanted to be a DJ. I have always loved music. I DJed my first gig at the age of 13 after purchasing a Realistic Mixer and wired microphone from Radio Shack. I used 2 CD players and a tape deck to play music for a festival in the church parking lot. Later that year I was asked to play music for a sweet 16 birthday party.”
Gary first started DJing weddings in 2010 when he was asked asked by a friend. He quickly developed a passion for making the most important day in someone’s life a day to remember! After working on his own for a couple years, in 2012 Gary joined the JLK Events team. You can still catch him spinning in local clubs & bars playing music videos and hosting Karaoke & Trivia.
