DJ Joel Giorgio – Greenbelt DJ

Hello, I’m Joel Giorgio, our most experienced DJ at and owner of Greenbelt DJ Productions. I love Austin so much, which is why I named our company after the Barton Creek Greenbelt. I moved here in the late 90s to attend UT and made this unique city my permanent home. Soon after moving here, I became very interested in the techniques downtown DJs were using to mix live on turntables. However, studying and graduating from UT with a journalism degree in 2001 was my main priority. I was fortunate enough to get a job in the newsroom at the Austin American Statesman during my senior year of college. For the next five years, I taught school for Austin ISD while working on a masters degree in education.

I thought being a DJ could be a side project, not my actual career. But I resigned from my day job in 2005, and I’ve never looked back. I’ve been DJing full time for 13 years now. We have several hundred 5-star reviews about us on The Knot, Wedding Wire, Google, and YELP. Common themes you will read are that we are flexible; will excel even with little guidance; and are extremely responsive to phone calls and emails.

We have a real knack for figuring out exactly what our clients envision, but we can also make suggestions for certain aspects, at your request. We’re very organized and spend a significant amount of time preparing for each event. All we need is about 45 minutes of your time the month of your wedding to pick your brain and review your timeline, so you can sit back and enjoy your own wedding.

All three of us use Technics 1200 turntables with the industry-standard Serato DJ software. We use a mixing technique called beat matching during the dance portion so that all dance songs are mixed in a unique and seamless way.

If I am booked or outside your budget, one of our other DJs might be available to DJ your wedding or other event. Aside from being a great DJ, Anthony has a degree in architecture from the University of Texas at Austin and has done more than 500 weddings for us since 2011. Erik works full time for Apple Corp. and has done more than 400 weddings in the past 10 years.

We approach our DJ jobs with the same ambition to be successful and honest that drove us to get formal educations, and for me, become a teacher and for Anthony, become an architect. In other words, we humbly take our jobs very seriously and do not cut corners; we are very thorough and meticulous in our preparation and presentation for each event; professional from day one; and we spare no expense on quality sound and lighting equipment. We have provided mobile DJ services at more than 1,850 events without missing an event or ever sending a replacement DJ due to illness or any other circumstances. We’re proud to say that missing an event simply is not an option for us. But, we do have a plan in place if something beyond our control prevents us from attending an event.

“Music was super important to us for our wedding. We wanted to make sure everyone had a great time. Joel made sure the dance floor was packed, and everyone was enjoying themselves. We wanted him to feel the crowd and play what he thought everyone would enjoy. We met with Joel the week of our wedding to go over our play list/do not play list/and any other must-haves. We would recommend Greenbelt DJs and especially Joel to any couple looking for an amazing DJ. You can tell Joel has a true passion for music and a good dance party. Thank you Joel for making our wedding reception the ultimate dance party!” – Britany A.

“Joel was amazing and kept everyone on the dance floor all night! He made sure he knew our vision for the reception and worked with requests by other guests to make everything flow well. He kept the timeline moving and everybody had a great time!” – Megan C.

“We highly recommend Greenbelt DJ Productions. We had an excellent experience from start to finish. Joel assisted us in all our needs and truly listened to our requests. He did an awesome job and made sure my husband and I and all our guest had a blast on the dance floor. He also made sure our first dance song sang by my brother was flawless. THANK YOU JOEL!!!” – Victoria K.

“You will not find a better DJ than Joel. He listened to everything we wanted and threw an awesome party. The dance floor stayed packed and everyone had a great time.” – Kelsey G.
