In the Booth has had the privilege of working with the team from G&M Event Group over many years and all throughout Brisbane and South East Queensland. While providing Photo Booth hire at some of Brisbane’s best venues, we’ve crossed paths with G&M at Weddings, Corporate Functions and School Events.
The level of excellence shown by Glenn and the entire G&M crew is outstanding without exception. If you are looking for highly professional DJ, Lighting or Event Services (without the stereotypical sleezy DJ in the corner) we would happily recommend contacting G&M.

Meet the Team
Glenn and Miranda Mackay are the husband and wife team behind G&M Solutions. From humble beginnings, the business has grown out of a genuine passion for the wedding industry and a desire to make the wedding day of each and every one of their clients unforgettable.
G&M Solutions (now G&M Event Group: G&M DJs & G&M Lighting) was created in 1999 and, as newlyweds themselves, Glenn and Miranda were passionate in their belief that every couple deserved only the best on their special day.
In 2013 Glenn Mackay was inducted into the prestigious Wedding Entertainment Directors Guild (WED Guild®) as Australia’s first, and only, member.
G&M DJs are also members of the DJ Alliance of Australia (DJAA) and as such both Glenn & Miranda mentor and liaise with other wedding DJs, both in Australia, and around the globe, ensuring the continued improvement of the industry.
More than 15 years later, G&M DJs employs 10 professional DJs and continues to evolve and improve their services to international standards, making them a leader in the wedding entertainment industry.
On the Couch with G&M Event Group
What makes the G&M Event Group service unique?
Talent refers to the team that we have assembled to help our clients. We hire and train people who have a passion for helping others. They are our greatest asset and have enabled us to deliver high quality celebrations for our clients time after time. Our ongoing training program ensures constant growth and improvement.
Reliability is born from the talent we hire and how we train them. Being a full-time company in an industry mostly made up of part time or hobbyists, we’re able to service our clients whenever they need us. Our office team ensure that everything runs smoothly and promptly so that our clients have less worry.
Care is a result of the passion we have for what we do. We’ve always aimed to be “more than music” at an event. We’ve spent countless hours refining the experience our customers have with us to ensure it’s as smooth as possible and that we can create something truly memorable for their event.
TRC enables us to deliver on our core focus, which is performing above expectations to make a difference in peoples lives.
How are your couples involved in selecting the music for their wedding receptions?
For those who want to dig deeper into the music for their celebration, we have created our Magnifique packages. This package allows them to work one on one with their selected Entertainer to ensure that we are completely in sync with their needs. This is normally done through in person planning meetings leading up to their celebration to ensure we know exactly how to deliver what they are wanting.
How do you stay current with music trends and on top of what’s happening in your industry?
With so many facets to our business we love to attend conferences both locally and internationally. This ensures we stay at the cutting edge of technology available to our industry. By associating with a vast network of DJs, MCs and Lighting Designers around the globe, we’re often at the forefront of what’s happening in the local market.
Various industry associations also help keep us current, plus one of the areas we are well known for is innovation. We love creating our own path and we’re not afraid to suggest new and exciting concepts to our clients that will take their wedding to the next level.
What questions should couples have on their list to ask their DJ?
Before planning any aspect of your wedding you should ask yourself; what three words would you use to describe your perfect wedding. Take some time to really think about this. Then before you spend money on any aspect of your wedding, check in to see if it is adding to your three words. If not, then maybe you don’t need it. Think about what you want your guests to be saying on their way home from your wedding. Then go out there and hire wedding professionals who can make that happen.
If a wedding professional is not at least as excited about your wedding as you are, then move on and find someone who is. You don’t get a “do-over” when it comes to your wedding, so choose wisely.
