Gaetano Kortman

He might have a baby face, but don't let that fool you! Gaetano has an extremely broad knowledge of music along with the ease and confidence of a seasoned professional on the mic. 

A native of The Bronx, New York, Gaetano comes from a musical family. His grandfather was a jazz musician and band leader who exposed him to an eclectic variety of music at a very young age. From Country to Classic Rock and Aretha Franklin to ZZ Top, there really isn’t any kind of music he doesn’t know and love. 

Gaetano first caught Marcel’s eye at a July 4th party where he showed an interest in the mixing console. The two began talking, and “G”, as he is affectionately known, began queueing up tunes. Marcel was so impressed with his musical taste and diversity that he offered to take him on as an apprentice. The rest, as they say, is history! 

G’s boyish good looks, fun dance moves and infectious personality have made him an audience favorite. But more importantly, G is committed to the qualities that have made Nightshift Sounds Entertainment the top DJ service in Mississippi – passion, professionalism, attention to detail and the ability to get a crowd going!​
