    DJ Allen was one of THE BEST choices we made for our wedding! He asked to meet with us beforehand and helped us craft our playlist and timeline for the reception and dance party (which of course he MC'd). He arrived early and had all his equipment, which is top of the line by the way, set up long before we started the reception. Mind you, our wedding was out in the mountains over an hour drive outside of Albuquerque! The acoustics were incredible - at one point we went for sunset wedding photos about a half mile away from the the reception and we were still signing along to the music - unreal sound - what a party! The music was alway on point and he read the dance floor perfectly - seamlessly switching between contemporary Pop, Country Western swing, Line Dances, Oldies, Ranchers and Spanish, etc keeping the dance floor popping all evening! Allen was incredible to work with and did all he could to make our special night - even more special! We wholeheartedly recommend you use DJ Allen at your next event. Considering the excellent price point and incredibly positive experience he helps create, we don't see how you can beat it! C & C

    Allen was amazing to work with. I hired him for my daughter's graduation reception and communication with him was easy, he always got back with me right away when I had questions so he was reliable. I tried Allen for the first time after having another DJ for years and my daughter said he was the best DJ we've had. He sticks with your music playlist and plays music upon request. His pricing was affordable and I was truly blessed to find him. Thank you Allen, for making our night truly memorable.

    Great DJ for my daughter's party!!
    We loved having Allen as our DJ for my daughter's Sweet 16 Birthday Party. He was very professional, got there early for set-up and was ready to go when the party started. Most importantly he played awesome music for my daughter and her friends to dance to. He kept party going until the very end. I would definitely use Allen again!!

    Awesome DJ Service!!
    Allen did an amazing job at our wedding! We were able to write out all the songs we wanted played for our ceremony, wedding party introductions, first dances and bouquet and garter toss. We were also able to list 25 songs we wanted played at the reception and every song was played. He did a great job mixing songs and keeping the party going. Our friends and family love to dance and everyone was dancing until the very last song! I would highly recommend DJ Allen Gallegos and Goodtimes DJ service!

    Professional and impressive!
    Allen was wonderful to work with. I needed a music professional that could work with an older crowd for our annual Christmas party. I appreciated Allen's professionalism and receptiveness to their music tastes and enthusiasm. I received many wonderful comments about Allen from the guests. They loved him! Not only was he professional, but the sound quality he was able to create in our metal hangar building was excellent. Thank you so much Allen. We hope to see you next year!

    Allen with Goodtimes DJ Service was incredibly accommodating and worked with me (one of the most particular brides) to ensure our music and meticulously planned playlist was executed perfectly. The party did not stop until the reception ended!

    Great job!
    Allen did an outstanding job! He was very professional, responded to emails/calls very quickly and kept us in the loop on everything. He showed up early the day of our wedding and made sure all equipment was working. All of our songs were played as requested and the day went off without a hitch. He even made sure his lights and shirt matched the wedding colors! Thank you so much for helping us with our big day! I would definitely recommend Goodtimes for other events!

    I had a 40th class reunion and hired a DJ for both Friday night and Saturday night. There was no comparison in the 2 of them. Allen is very professional, fun, got the crowd involved and played the music I requested. I would use him again for sure.

    Allen did an awesome job for our big day! He had us fill out a wedding day schedule with songs and a list of our top 20 must play songs. He even took all of our suggestions for happy hour and dinner music. He adapted quickly when we had some unexpected changes in the schedule. Everyone had a blast at our wedding and the music helped to keep the party going strong!

    DJ Allen did an awesome job and provided excellent customer service. Did really well with playlist and was able to adjust to requests on the spot.
  • Susan P. Apr 14, 2016
    Goodtimes DJ Service was so professional! Allen met with us about getting together our playlist 2 weeks before our school dance. Then he showed up 2 hours before the dance to set his equipment up, played great music during the dance, and had super lasers and fog that added to the fun. We will definitely be using Goodtimes again! - STS

Trained and worked with a professional DJ my first year.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My first DJ event was 5 years ago when a couple of my friends wanted to have a New Year’s Eve party. The opportunity of using a friend’s professional DJ equipment came about. The rest is history – I haven’t stopped since! I am constantly learning more and more each day and having fun while doing it. I’m like a kid on Christmas morning when I purchase a new piece of DJ equipment or get butterflies when someone books an event. I love playing music! Especially playing music people like. I understand what it’s like being on the other end of the DJ booth so I’ve learned to cater to a variety of audiences with a variety of music. I heard someone once say “if you enjoy what you do for a living, you’ll never have to work another day in your life”. I honestly get that.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure your DJ has a back up plan and is a registered business owner with a contract. We depend on our past clients reviews because we could talk about how good we are all day long. We have various websites including our facebook page where satisfied clients say good things about our service. Ask us for a list of reviews.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Ask themselves if their event is worth paying for a professional and save themselves from a potential disaster. Its worth hiring a professional. Our motto: "It's not just music - It's a lifetime of memories" We want our clients to have a memorable experience.
