Podcast Transcript

Welcome everybody to the Wedding Songs Podcast. I am Matt Campbell. Today we’re going to be talking about the music planning process. To help me with this, we have Anthony Gelo from GTP DJ Entertainment and Good Times Productions based in New York City. Welcome to the show, Anthony.

Thank you, Matt. Thank you for having me. Before we get started, I just want to have one quick question.

Wedding Planning Tip

Can you give engaged couples a tip for planning their wedding? I just want to say that there are so many options out there to pick a venue, to pick a DJ, a photographer, something that suits them and not, their families or incorporates their family, but there are so many ways to personalize it nowadays, as compared to many years ago, so, pick something that both of you enjoy. And when it comes to music, just see what’s out there and always be aware of things that you could add to your wedding playlist. Awesome.

About Anthony Gelo and GTP DJ Entertainment

Can you tell everybody a little bit about you and your company? Sure. my company is GTP DJ Entertainment, Good Times Productions, based out of New York City.

We do a variety of events. we do weddings. We do corporate events. We do schools. service, New York City, Long Island, and Manhattan. but we really try to personalize it.

We’re not a McDonald’s. You know what I mean? Where we really try to get to know our clients and give them a personalized, musical experience. Yeah. That’s so important. That personalized where it’s not out of the box. This is what you get. So, I think that’s really important. Exactly what you’re saying.

Type of Music Played

Let’s get started then. How do you answer the question: What type of music do you play? I answer that by first saying, well, where am I? Who’s in front of me? New York City, you know, I could be playing, to 18-year-olds one day and 65-year-olds the next, so that’s a tough question to answer because I need to know what the situation is.

And I think that DJs in general need to be aware of who’s in front of them and be able to adapt to certain situations on the fly. I just did a New Year’s Eve event at a local catering hall and, there’s any age, from 22 years old to 65 years old.

And I’m playing. We had mentioned in our conversation earlier, that I played Tyla’s Water next to Frankie Vallie. So it was kind of all over the place. I think you need to adapt to what’s in front of you and visualize it as you go.

That is a great answer. Instead of saying pigeonholing yourself into one, it’s really based on the crowd. Of course, after this couple signs a contract.

Planning Wedding Music

What are the next steps you take to work with them to plan their music? Okay, so we set up a music planning session. That’s a little bit down the road.

Let’s say a couple books. I don’t know a year out. what I tell them is we’re going to stay in contact that entire time. My phone’s on my email. You know, you could text me. You could email me. You could. Everybody communicates nowadays and in so many different ways. So I asked them what’s their personal preference.

But what I say is, is always be aware of what’s around you musically. What are you listening to in the car? What are you listening to? On a Sunday morning, what are you listening to at a barbecue? And there are so many different answers.

Now, there are so many different ways to listen to music. So I will, you know, obviously ask them, do you use Spotify? Do you use Apple Music? What do you do? And then I take it a step further and I say, all right, our lines of communication are open. So you have an idea for a song.

Text me. I like this song. I try to get a musical conversation going For the entire time leading up until about a month before, and then I narrowed it down at that point, but I try to get their musical brain going early. I think that that’s so important because 1 of the questions I wanted to ask you, because we all know, as DJs couples pick their music the last 2 weeks before the wedding. And so having that communication, I think is so important that leads to my next question.

Planning Tools

Are there specific tools that you use to help couples plan their music? Yes. I do use DJ Event Planner. I’m going to be switching over to SMPL, which is I’m in the process of doing, but that’s 1 aspect. I try to steer them to that. because it’s easier for me to organize it. But not every couple wants to do that. And I get that.

Song Recommendations

So, whether it’s a list of songs, whether it’s a Spotify playlist or anything. I don’t believe in giving a limit to requests. I want it all. I would like them to kind of narrow down some must-plays, but I want to know everything. And there are specific reasons for that. I think music over the past decade has changed in the aspect, there are so many different versions of songs. And edits and covers and different ways to play songs that they didn’t even, not even 10 years ago exist.

I’ll give you an example. Matt, have you ever heard the acoustic version of Take on Me by Aha? I have not recently. Okay. So I had a client randomly ask that and I had never heard that before. I looked it up and that has become kind of a staple during a dinnertime.

It’s very slow. if it’s on their list, I might use it in a dance set. I might not. And, there are different covers of songs, too. I mean, off the top of my head, Cupid by Amy Winehouse is another one. Like, if you’re doing kind of a reggae-ish cocktail hour.

So I, try to take their song list and study it, and try to put a, not a different spin necessarily, but, try to come up with a different way to give it to them during the wedding. Another way that I’ve been doing this recently is by using instrumentals more.

There’s that point in the wedding where all the toasts take place. I’ve been kind of sneaking in music as people are walking up. I got this idea literally from going to the Yankee game. I went to Yankee Stadium and when they announced the starting lineup, they played Mobb Deep’s Shook Ones, the instrumental in the background, which is a famous Hip Hop beat.

And I don’t know if you’re necessarily playing Shook Ones during a wedding, but, that’s a that everybody knows. So they hear that. And, it just adds another dimension, especially if you have a Hip Hop audience, like there’s another, live band instrumental cover of Queen by Wu Tang, kind of in the same vein.

That’s another one I’ve snuck in there. But it depends on the couple. Depends on what they like. I did a wedding recently, which was all heavy metal music, which was definitely different. And you know, I kind of did the same thing. I researched it ahead of time and they had some 80s stuff in there and I’m trying to see what goes with what and all of a sudden it’s a couple of weeks before the wedding.

I’m at home just kind of like seeing what I have available here. Jesse’s Girl is on their list, and so is Living After Midnight by Judas Priest, which are two songs I would never think of putting together. They lined up beat-wise, and they lined up key-wise. And that, the mix was perfect and I was like, who would have thought that, so having an impact, having input from your clients, and having the tools and the edits that us DJs have in the year 2024. It enables you to do so much to personalize the wedding.

Originals vs Remixes

So then are you seeing that couples are choosing original songs or remixes? What are you seeing in your area? Because a DJ in New York City may not be the same in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where they may. Want the original song. So I’m just curious about your area, what you’re seeing.

A little bit of both. It really depends on where you’re located. I had a wedding last year. it was actually my cousin’s wedding, in Charlotte, North Carolina, it was, it was great. but it was very different.

It was very, very different, just the way that they approach things. A lot more country music, which I wasn’t, as familiar with. I don’t think overdoing it with the things that I’m talking about is the way to go, but it’s a nice touch to add something different here and there, especially if you have this list and you’re not necessarily going to get to it during dancing.

Playing a Playlist

Love it. I think one of the things that definitely needs to be mentioned is a DJ doesn’t get a list and say, okay, I’m just going to play this start to finish where what you’re saying is this is a planning process, not only for the couples planning their music but also for the DJ where this could be hours of time that you’re planning this couple’s playlist just to make it unique just to them.

And I think that’s very important. Yeah, I do. I think it’s very important and I think it’s something that’s overlooked. I’ll make a folder and Serato for every wedding. I do. There’s going to be similarities.

You know what I mean? I love Pitbull, but do I want to be playing a Pitbull song every 5 seconds? Like, I’ve seen some DJs do. Let’s be honest, I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with playing Pitbull. I mean, he has some great party songs. I try to avoid those crutches and put something else in there that works just as well that people wouldn’t expect.

I love it. The biggest compliment you can get, I think, as a DJ is. Getting asked, what song is this? This song is awesome. And you’re playing that at the right moment.

Without a doubt. Getting back to the DJ edits, you know, there are certain songs, I mean, like September by Earth, Wind and Fire is obviously a classic wedding song, but it’s a great song to start with. Obviously, but that song can be tough to mix in, in the beginning.

Cause you, you lose part of the crowd at times, if it’s the wrong crowd. I use Scooter’s edit of it, and it’s perfect. It keeps them on the floor, and it’s those minor little details that are the difference between everybody leaving and everybody staying. It’s, like, I hear that DJs don’t beat match, that astonishes me, because I can’t even, New Year’s Eve I had a crowd rocking for about 25 minutes, and I was gonna play We Found Love by Rihanna.

And I messed up. I messed up. I played that song 8,000 times. I didn’t get it right. And they left immediately. You know, and that happens to every DJ. Great DJs obviously recover from that pretty quickly. But to me, if you don’t mix a song the right way, at the right moment, they’re gonna leave.

Music Knowledge

And the other aspect of that is, if you get handed a song, I had a bride at a wedding recently come up to me and asks for Two Princes by Spin Doctors, right? Great song. Love that song. upbeat, not necessarily a dance song, but upbeat enough. so I’m thinking, you know, I’m thinking 2, 3 songs ahead of how am I going to get this in there to keep them on the dance floor?

Everybody, not just the bride and her friends. And, I played Dancing Queen, right? And then I went into, I have an edit of, of Miley Cyrus Party in the USA with All Star behind it. So I’m like, perfect. Played the first part of All Star. Now I’m in that beat range.

I’m also in that era where I could play that song and played Two Princes, kept the dance floor, went into Levitating straight from there straight to Stayin’ Alive. There are all these known classic and modern-day classic wedding songs. With an oldie, a kind of a B or C song thrown in that kept them up there and didn’t make them leave.

So I think there’s a lot to that as a DJ. There are a lot of ways I think to approach that I think one of the most important things that you said is you’re thinking three songs ahead where you’re saying all dance floor fillers Staying Alive. So that way, you know, if that song crashes, you can at least bring them back quickly.

Whereas I’m thinking also, what if that song totally goes off, then you got to stay in that area. So maybe you go to third eye blind or other songs where you’re staying in that, in that genre and era. So you’re always thinking as a DJ, that’s why I think one of the most important aspects of a DJ is your music knowledge.

So that way, if you do get that request from the bride, how are you going to incorporate that into your playlist? Right. And that was on the fly, but that also comes from the feedback that they’re going to give you like I mentioned before the Judas Priest song, that was something that was just, I was literally playing with it.

I got that list of songs and I’m saying to myself. All right, how am I going to make these people dance and what’s a banger here and at that list, Jesse’s girl was the banger, you know, so like, how do I tie that to that? And that’s something that I’m doing, a week or two before the wedding when I’m making my final preparations and that’s something that A, comes with experience and b, like you said, comes with music knowledge.

It’s funny, one of my favorite Judas Priest songs is Turbo Lover. That would be the one I would request. one. That’s a good one. Yeah. That, that is a good one. That was difficult. It turned out good, but I had one a couple of months before that.

That was all old school hip hop, which was kind of the same, a lot easier, but I, I really like digging in there when the music matters to the couple that much, to me, if you’re a DJ and you’re annoyed by constant texts about music, you’re in the wrong business.

You’re here for them. I knew this entire crowd was going to be into old-school Hip Hop in that way. And I’m playing, biggie songs that. I would never play at a wedding on prime time, the heavy metal one, but it was a bit of a challenge.

And the fact that there was a portion of the audience that didn’t get it, some of the older folks. And that is something that was discussed with the bride and groom, but this is what they wanted. And I was, I delivered it for them. And there were enough people there from that era and that age group that made it work.

Or maybe you talk to the couple and you throw in a few more slow songs in there. Yeah. So that way you can get those other couples at least dancing once every 15 minutes or 30 minutes, whatever. I think slow songs are a great way to reset a dance floor as I mentioned before.

I mixed it the wrong way because we’re all human. I mean, we all mess up a mix every now and then, a slow song is a great way to bring people back. and to kind of like, we set the floor, you know, especially if you just did a certain set, and, you know, the older people do like it and it is a way to kind of, involve them as well.

Slow Songs

Speaking of slow songs, how many do you typically play during a wedding? It varies. It depends on the bride and groom. I have done what a lot of DJs do is start with a slow song that is definitely it still works. You want to start with, a classic song, like Elvis, Can’t Help Falling in Love with You still works.

But more often than not, I’ll go to their playlist and find something there that works a little bit better. but, that’s 1 way. I would say on average, probably in New York City too. So we were a little bit high energy here, you know, myself, but, 2 to 3, sometimes more, depends on the crowd.

I think a lot of couples now, you know, especially over the last couple of years, you know, weddings are becoming more parties than they are anything else. And there comes a point where all the formalities are done and it’s just party time for two hours. And I don’t think slow songs kind of fit into that as well as they used to.

So I might play them earlier in the evening than later. Yeah. I have the impression high energy I think like you said, is more prominent in your area.

Dancing During Receptions

So speaking of that, do you see that there’s more dancing than just the dancing part? Are you seeing it between cocktail hour and dinner? I’m seeing it all over the place, I don’t know if, wedding planners or major D’s like it too much, but like, we kind of like when people are dancing when they’re not supposed to be, you know, there’s certain things like, let’s say a couple, an older couple, or even a younger couple comes up and I don’t know, they want to hear their wedding song and it doesn’t really fit, into it.

Reading The Room

Yeah. What’s going on? Yeah, I might play it right before we start dancing again or during dinner, and then just that couple gets up and sometimes people will follow that’s one way to do it. but you could, you could always tell. I mean, from cocktail hour on, you could always tell what kind of crowd you’re going to have.

As a DJ, I’m looking for people to sing along. I’m looking for people tapping their feet. I’m looking for people asking me about songs. , sometimes I’ll DJ cocktails out live. Sometimes I won’t depending upon what kind of music they like. It depends upon, sometimes the way the venue is set up, but I think you can tell a lot by just what the couple gives you and what you’re observing.

I think there are three aspects to putting music together for a wedding and that’s obviously that’s the couple’s request first and foremost, it’s their guests, which hopefully they align, usually they do, and it’s, you know, it’s my experience and kind of putting that all together and formulating it and playing a song that’s not on their list that I know works with what is.

And that’s a conversation I have with every bride and groom. And I never really had any negative feedback from that conversation at all. I think what you’re saying, is don’t undervalue the reading-the-room aspect of DJing, where exactly what you’re saying is if people are singing along, then you know, okay, later on.

That’s the type of music that they’re going to be dancing to and singing along to. Or maybe you, you play two princes, like we were saying during cocktail hour and nobody does anything and everybody’s giving you weird looks. Okay. Then maybe I’m going to skip, skip that type of music. Yeah, but I also think, I mean, as a DJ, how many of us have ever loaded a song, found it, and then there’s 30 seconds to go and she completely changed her mind.

I’ve done it, there’s that aspect too. It’s like, you just have this inner person inside you saying, this isn’t going to work. And, you know, it’s like, all right, let me slam something else in because that’s going to be better. And there’s been many times I’ve done that.

And I was completely right. You know, so I, that’s something to keep in mind too, is just always having your eyes and seeing what’s going on I totally agree. Somebody might come up and say, I want one week by bare naked ladies, and it totally goes off and you’re like, Oh my gosh, what am I going to play the next three songs after this? Yeah, yeah, totally changes your plan.

Eras & Genres

What are some of the eras or genres that you’re finding popular in your area?

Well, I think the biggest era right now is the 2000s and 2010s. That era is huge. Anything from Black Eyed Peas to, like I said, I mentioned Pitbull earlier, or Katie Perry. Taylor Swift, obviously, anything there, even the, pop punk too. I mean, pop punk is huge with certain crowds. I also worked for several multi op companies, my friends and, you know, we trade business together. And I was DJing for, my friend’s company.

And, I took a look at the list. There are all these pop-punk songs on there. And the couple was dressed right out of My Chemical Romance video, and I’m looking at the list and, what am I going to play 1st? And I just turned. I said I’m playing Good Charlotte 1st.

And he’s like, really? I’m like, yeah, I’m opening up with The Anthem. And he’s like, is that the first song? I’m like, yeah, that’s what I’m feeling. And I said, watch this. I turned to him he said, this isn’t gonna work. And all of a sudden they all popped to the floor. The bride is air guitaring, you know what I mean?

Like, again, reading the moment, but, I really think that that era, that 2000s, from hip hop to EDM to pop to pop punk, has really, taken the place of a lot of the 80s and 90s stuff that used to be out there. And it makes total sense with the age of your bride, even, even in nightlife too,

Music Today

I think music today is, so, personal, that was still the era when everybody listened to kind of the same thing. Now everybody’s listening to different things. We were talking about school dances before we were on here, like now. You’ll play a couple of songs at a school dance and you’ll have a certain crowd dance and then you play something else, somebody else dance.

And I think that’s because of the way that people listen to music now that the 2010s era was the last era that kind of really had everybody kind of listening to the same thing. Everybody was listening to Hip Hop and EDM and pop punk and, that is definitely the sweet spot right now.

and I think kind of replacing some of these classic songs at certain events. , I’ve got a feeling is a new celebration. Even if that’s an old song now, you can always tell, what DJs are thinking outside the box and, putting different songs in different places, than they were years ago.

And I think that’s an important thing that you said to start off with Good Charlotte. I think we’re past the days of playing run around, Sue playing those party starters that are from the fifties and the sixties yeah.

Well. I’ll be honest, Runaround Sue still hits. It really does. That song, I can’t even explain it, but that song, that song still hits, I’ll still play that in certain situations. I’m not afraid of the classics at all. I still play ’em. but you really, you really gotta pick your spots.

Finding New Music

You really gotta, to zero in and know who’s in front of you. And that starts with getting to know your client, getting another music taste, getting to know where they come from, and talking to guests. The definition of a DJ in 2024 is very different than it was in 2000, we just have so many more options as music listeners and as DJs.

I think Spotify was a growth of that, where Spotify is using AI to create custom playlist recommendations just for you, where, like you were saying, everybody’s creating their own curated playlists that are tailored to them. And that’s interesting. You said about the school where you’ll play one song and only one group dances, play another song, and another group dances because you have the days of radio where everybody’s listening to the same thing is gone.

Yeah, no, it’s gone. And it’s getting harder and harder to research it. I do a lot of school events and proms and things like that. And you know, every February or March, I start to prepare myself. I start to make playlists. I, you know, there are certain tools.

I use Spotify. I use Crate Hackers. I use, yeah. Promo Only has a chart that I’ve used for years. you know, and you gather all these sources. And then what ends up happening is it’s a good way to prepare, but then you get to these events. And they’ll ask you for a song you’ve never heard of, you find the clean version, put it on, and try it out.

And, all of a sudden you’re playing that song for the next six months. I mean, that’s how pop smoke came about, you know what I mean? And you look at it now and it’s like, you’re doing these school events in another 10, 15 years. They’re going to be the brides and grooms. So where is the DJ industry headed with the way music is brought about these days?

And, ingested it’s interesting to follow and I think it’s going to get harder and harder as a DJ. And I think you’re going to have to personalize because if you don’t, you’re just going to get left in the dust. Fantastic tip. Fantastic. Music knowledge is so, so important.

Heartwarming Wedding Moment

Can you share any heartwarming wedding moments from the past? Yes, I can. There have been many over the years. one that sticks out to me, is, I was doing a gay wedding a couple of years ago. Two sweethearts they were both awesome.

the wedding was difficult. it was difficult in the aspect of there being a lot of things that they wanted in there. A lot of activities. I had a three-man staff on it. I had myself, I had a sound person, and a lighting tech. the lighting tech was also a DJ. So that kind of played both.

I mean, I DJ personally, but he was there to mix a song or two, if I needed to be out on a mic or something like that. But, one of the grooms texted me, and he’s like, Hey, I want you to keep this a secret, but I need to talk to you about something. I said, all right. So he gave me a call.

And, have you ever seen the TV show Schitt’s Creek? I have seen a few episodes. Yep. Okay. So there’s a very famous scene in there, where, Tina Turner is simply the best is playing. Mm-Hmm. and the main character basically does a dance. And it’s a heartwarming scene for this couple, it was their favorite show and, he wanted to reenact

He wanted to have the shirt specially made, but he wanted to keep it a surprise from his, from his partner. , he was more on the shy side. this was not something that he would have done. I mean, it was a plan. We had several of the bridesmaids in on it.

We had, obviously my staff was in on it. how are we going to do this scene without him knowing it what we came up with was we were going to do a stroll along, out of, what’s that show Soul Train, and at the end, one of the prizes was going to sneak a chair.

Into the middle and he was going to have one of the grooms sit down and then he was going to come out of the line wearing the shirt. Now, this is difficult to pull off. I mean, a lot of moving parts here. I was nervous about a lot of things during that wedding, but this 1 was like, I don’t know.

How are we going to make this a surprise? And, we found that a good timeframe to do it. And I was communicating with the bridesmaids and then. I went over to one of the grooms and I said, Hey, you’re almost ready for this. He goes, no. I said, he goes, and I don’t drink at weddings ever, but he comes over to me and he goes, I need a shot of tequila.

You’re going to do one with me. Right. I really need a shot of tequila. Right. So we run over to the bar. And basically, I told him, I said, for better or worse, this is going to be awesome. I’m trying to reassure him. We’re going to do this.

So we take our shot of tequila and he proceeds to go over and get changed. And I’m like looking at the corner of my eye. I’m looking at my DJ trying to change the song. I made an edit of everything and it worked out perfectly. It was the highlight of the wedding. All of a sudden.

One of the grooms was sitting down. The other one is on the lines wearing the shirt and the look on his face when he saw him pull out and we scratched in simply the best. It was awesome. It was just an awesome moment. And it was, it was something that I’ll never forget.

The fact that we pulled that off and that the timing. I don’t think brides and grooms, and DJs do, but I don’t think brides and grooms realize how much timing affects weddings. I mean, it’s, it’s everything. And pulling that off in the right time with the right song, while keeping that a surprise.

 It was something that they’ll never forget. It was out of character for the groom who did it. It was awesome. And it sticks in my mind completely. I would have that recommendation for every DJ talking to couples and every couple listening to have one special moment like that. That really captures your personality.

Have A Unique Moment

I remember a wedding that I DJ’d and the father of the bride came out, they were going to do their toast and he took out a sword and cut off the top of the champagne bottle with the sword. And then the poured that into the flutes just have one moment.

That’s just uniquely yours. That’s for your personality. Those are the memories that not only DJs, but every single guest at your wedding is going to remember. Of course. Yeah, definitely. Definitely. And I think that’s becoming more and more of a thing and whether it’s the whole wedding or like you said, just a moment.

Using Apps

And I think as DJs, we really need to assist in that process. We have the tools, whether it’s a different edit. It’s or like you said, a tricky subject, obviously, but some of the stuff it could do. It’s amazing.

There are apps out there that’ll just, I had a groom, who wanted me to shorten a song, completely, it was I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack, which he really didn’t want to do. It was a special dance with his cousin, I believe. And, what he wanted to do to dance, but he wasn’t particularly too fond of that song.

So he asked me to shorten it and, there’s an AI app that just did it for me automatically. I played with it. I was like, all right, let me just see what it could do. I was amazed and like, for a second, it had a perfect version that I could just use. I was like, this is kind of scary in one way, but, as the technology improves we can’t forget about, you know, Like you said having that special moment and that we have, we have tools now to help us do that and create it and think outside of the box and make it memorable, for everybody for the, providing room and their guests. Very special moments for sure.

Contact Anthony Gelo

Can you tell everybody, just to close things out, how can people contact you and reach out to you? well, I’m in the process of having my website redone. My website , is queensdj.com. So, I have one up there, but I’ll have a new one shortly.

I’m putting that together. I’m on Instagram. My Instagram is, I’m the DJ and that’s I-M-T-H-A-A-A dj. that’s a good place to check out, I post my schedule, I post events, sometimes I post tips on there, I network with a bunch of DJs, across the country, I try to attend conferences when I can, being as close, I do go to DJX every year. I just went to the DJ Collective for the first time, which was an incredibly amazing experience. And, I recommend it to anybody. I’m looking, possibly get to Vegas this year, for MEX, or, Midwest, or, you know, I’m, I’m gonna try, DJX is a standard, like I’m gonna go there every year.

It’s literally, a three-hour drive and, You know, I had gone to DJX for years and never really, participated much. And I just, I kind of realized that a lot of people go there for networking, for the parties, for the seminars. And I think all of them are important.

You know, I think just having that, Being around that much creativity, just really, really sparks you. I came home from the collective and my head was exploding from everything that I picked up, just by talking to people and, and by watching sets so, so I’m always down to network and, Instagram’s a great place to do that.
