Garrick Estick
DJ

Garrick the DJ is a sound chameleon. He pulls from an eclectic selection of genres to play to his audience, whether it’s Old School Jams, Pop, House, Rock, Jazz, Classic Soul/Motown, or many others. There is no greater feeling than seeing people enjoy music, and he has built a reputation on his ability to ignite the human spirit. Garrick makes it all about connecting with his audiences, whether large or small to make sure they have a memorable evening.

A passion for music sparked his interest in Djing. He got started early on with his focus shifting to radio production, working as an on-air producer doing live-to-air broadcasts with CHUM FM from 2007 – 2011. Now, he is focusing on his DJ work, sharing music with guests at special events and venues. Garrick injects entertainment into any party, private event, and wedding.

While there are so many, a few notable career highlights for Garrick have been playing the Toronto International Film Festival, Canadian Screen Awards Gala, Nuit Blanche Street Party for Virgin Radio and DJing a main stage event for Pride Toronto, one of the largest festivals of its kind in the world.

Mike Samardzic – Director Client Services at XMC

I have had the opportunity to work with Garrick on numerous occasions – From an outdoor XBOX One launch to a retail Windows VIP experience and more. His overall demeanour, professionalism, ability to connect with his crowd and energy are held to the highest of standards. I recommend Garrick for any and all DJ requirements from VIP events, to retail launches – a true gentleman on the ones and twos.

Alexandra Campbell – Director of Wedding Services – LUXE Destination Weddings

I had the privilege of working with Garrick The DJ in January 2014 for one my weddings at the Langosta Beach Club in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Garrick was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is incredibly professional, enthusiastic and always committed to creating a fun loving atmosphere for his clients.

When planning a destination wedding, the group size is usually much smaller than a local reception. It is imperative that the DJ has a good understanding of the crowd in order to create a fun atmosphere for everyone.  From the rehearsal dinner, to cocktails on the beach followed by dinner and dancing poolside, Garrick was able to read the crowd and play music that complimented the vibe of each event. He had everyone on the dancefloor, young and old! It was truly a party to remember!

I would absolutely recommend Garrick The DJ to any of my future clients. A true pleasure to work with!

Sonya Davidson – The Culture Pearl (Toronto)

“When I first met Garrick, he was playing non-stop tracks at one of the Roots Canada stores.

There was something that just moved me and it wasn’t just me. I can recall looking around and everyone around me seem to be groovin’ to the beat. It was a magical sight to see as I’m sure we were all not aware of how the music just moves us even in the subtlest ways.

To this day, he still recognizes me whenever I happen to chance upon one of his gigs. Much respect to this man who obviously takes great joy and care in his work and aware of his surroundings.”
