"Joe was great! From the day we hired him up to the moment all our guests left way after Midnight, still excited and completely exhausted after dancing all night. He was incredible to work with! He asked questions. He listened. And he HEARD us. The wedding atmosphere is at large created by the DJ and ours was so... well.. it was SO US! his choice of music, timing, fluidity and the absence of the awkward moments he saved us from 🙂 Plus, he really really feels the crowd and is able to flex and adapt when necessary. Our wedding was everything I could ever want. I highly recommend Joe and his team. Professional, down to earth, fun, kind and just an amazing human!"

"Joe was seriously the absolute best DJ possible. He kept in contact with us all the way to the wedding day and even after!! He sent us a thank you card with his cute little dogs too! He cared about making our wedding fun and making sure we were happy! He asked us what we wanted and helped us when we told him we had no idea. We trusted him to pick the music for almost the entire wedding. Let’s just say the dance floor was occupied the entire night!! He played guitar for our ceremony which was so beautiful. He embraced our nerdy side and even learned the Star Wars theme song for me to walk down the aisle to. I could not have been happier with his services. He got personal with us and learned who we were and did amazing portraying it through his music selection. I would recommend over and over again for him because he is the best, hands down!!! Thank you Joe for making our day fun and even more meaningful!!!"

"Where do I begin? From the moment we booked Joe through the whole wedding planning process, Joe was truly amazing to work with. Joe listened to every single request that we had and truly brought it to life. He customized anything that we wanted, helped change songs to make them longer, and really payed attention to the crowd. So many people at our wedding raved about the music and how great he was. He helped our whole timeline run exactly how it was supposed to and if any changes needed to be made through the night he was there to make sure it all ran smoothly. He played all the music we wanted, communicated so well, and truly felt like a friend through the entire process. Joe, we cannot thank you enough for everything! Look no further and BOOK HIM NOW!"
