With over 25 years in the music business, Joe Pet is unquestionably one of the finest entertainers New England has to offer. As a successful musician and record producer, Joe has recorded with some of the most well known artists in the industry. His love and enthusiasm for music is what inevitably led him to become a mobile D.J.

Today, Joe brings that same enthusiasm for music to each and every one of his functions. Joe is a master at selecting just the right song at just the right moment. He loves to laugh and enjoy himself and is committed to ensuring that his client's guests do the same.

Joe is also a bit of a comedian and his quick wit and humor is always a delight to his audiences. However, it's his singing that really wows them as his years of experience in the music industry shines through.

Joe received quite a bit of notoriety by being the only drummer in the world considered by Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry in1982 for his band The Joe Perry Project. Demonstrating his talents behind the console as well as behind the drums, Joe contributed to the pre-production of Joe Perry's Once a Rocker Always a Rocker album by doing the the pre-production at Joe Pet's recording studio, Audioworks. The opportunity to work on a national release plus tour extensively with an international headliner took Joe to new levels of live and studio musicianship

Joe has performed or recorded with a number of national and international producers and recording artists including Jimmy Miller of Rolling Stones fame, 3-time Grammy Award Winner Buddy Guy, Steely Dan guitarist Denny Diaz, Huey Lewis and the News, Gary Cherone of Xtreme and Van Halen, Brad Delp of Boston, 9-time Grammy Award Winner Fred Lipsius from Blood Sweat & Tears, Peter Criss from Kiss and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith - to name a few.

Joe keeps his song selection sharp by writing and recording original material and producing new and established acts at his own Audioworks Recording Studio.

There really aren't even enough words to describe Joe Pet. First of all, as a person, he is truly unique in this industry. He is flexible, patient, kind, and caring, not to mention hilarious. He made us feel so comfortable, we could ask him anything and our requests were always honored. And really, we didn't need to ask for much, because he is so professional and has so much experience he knows just what to do. He told us when we initially interviewed him that his ultimate goal, always, is to provide the best service possible, that "it's all in his hands" and that we should relax, not worry, breathe and enjoy our day and that he will take care of the rest. And that he did. He more than surpassed our expectations. Everybody knows that a party is only as good as the guests make it, and Joe made sure that everybody was engaged, and dancing the night away. There wasn't a dull moment. And because of his vast knowledge of music coupled with his professional musical background, he knows just when to play the "right" song. His uncanny intuition of what a crowd needs is amazing. He is also so personal, he takes the time to get involved with the guests and talk to them. His jokes are always timely, it's extraordinary. Everybody is drawn to him, it's sort of crazy. He truly made our wedding so memorable, for sure one for the books! Everything about him is professional, he takes immense pride in his work. And he's not so bad on the eyes either! We would highly recommend him to anybody searching for the perfect DJ!

I first became aware of Joe (Pet) Petruzzelli and his outstanding services while attending a friend's wedding over a year ago. My fiance and I were in awe of the event. our friend introduced us to Joe; After speaking w/ him, we knew we would be in capable hands.
Several months later, without hesitation we contacted Joe and informed him we would like to utilize his services for our wedding. Once we had met for our first consultation, we were amazed that he recalled who we were, as we had been introduced 7 months prior. I informed him I wanted the same photographer, music and uplighting as my friend had used. He took it a step further and worked with us to customize the services around our exact specifications. We weren't sure what we wanted, but he knew what questions to ask, set up frequent meeting and phone calls to ensure that all arrangements he fine tuned for us met our expectations.
When all was said and done, not only did he meet our expectations on our wedding day, he exceeded them. Words cannot describe the level of customer service, Joe's dedication to customer satisfaction, his professionalism and ultimately, his skill at engaging the guests and ensuring everybody had a fantastic time. The uplighting which was so important to me, the music, the photography, the videography, all resulted in sheer perfection.
Joe even followed up with us after the event. He is truly a class act, in all aspects, from start to finish.
In closing, Joe's dedication to his clients as well as his attention to detail, the caliber of services he offers, his talent in entertaining as a DJ, both musically as well as his engaging personality which kept the guests on the dance floor all night long. Now my friends ask me for his contact information as they plan their special day. To me, there is no other option other than A Beat Away.
I cannot thank Joe enough for making my wedding a truly magical, memorable evening for my husband and myself, as well as our guests.

Music was spot on & flawless when transitioning from the ceremony, to cocktail hour & then the reception.

A Beat Away was very flexible & was able to adapt to all of our requests, specifically, last minute ones such as finding us a photo booth on a very short notice.

Our wedding was on a beach & while most vendors would shy away, A Beat Away welcomed the idea with enthusiasm.

We're very pleased & would use A Beat Away again.

Joe was the most professional, organized and fantastic DJ ever for our wedding!! We still receive compliments from guests of all ages (kids through our grandparents) that all loved him and remember being on the dance floor ALL night dancing to hits that everyone could dance to! My husband and I often think back on our big day and remember a moment when we stepped back and realized that the ENTIRE wedding (of 180 guests) were out on the dance floor! Joe was the one making that happen! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone every time!! Thank you so much joe for rocking the house all night and giving us memories to last a lifetime!

My husband and I often think back on our big day and remember a moment when we stepped back and realized that the ENTIRE wedding (of 180 guests) were out on the dance floor! Joe was the one making that happen! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone every time!! Thank you so much joe for rocking the house all night and giving us memories to last a lifetime!

Joe was simply Great! We even changed our introduction song 5 minutes before we were to start and Joe said no problem flicked a couple of switches and said you are all set. Everyone was there to the end and everyone was on the dance floor so it was perfect!

What can we say about Joe? A class act from start to finish! When I mean "start" I mean from our initial visit in his office. He walked us through everything. He told us a little bit about himself and then turned it over to a true customer experience. He wanted to know our likes, our dislikes, our maybes he wanted to know us.He wanted our Wedding Day to be the best experience.He was completely responsive to our financial budget and gave us a great deal. He was always responsive. He has a pretty cool client page that allowed us to pick some songs and lay out the whole wedding day. The week of the wedding me had a phone call that Joe prepared and we went over start to finish. Over the next few days we continued to reach out with changes to our plans, and in a moments time - Joe would always respond "got it /done". This put us at ease. So many other things to worry about for this big day and we knew from day one that the Entertainment was not going to be an issue. We knew our legacy would be on the entertainment. People will love the wedding or hate the wedding based on the man in charge of that dance floor. The floor shined thanks to Joe! As we got closer, our big concern was the weather as we were going to be outside for the ceremony and Joe was going the music for that as well. No worries, it poured but Joe worked with us to still provide excellent sound and the show went on with no issues. After our photos, Joe came in to check in on us and once again go over the introductions, first dance etc. He gave us a feel for how our guest were doing during cocktail hour and really energized us and got us pumped up to hit the reception! The reception - unreal! People are still talking about it and asking who our DJ was? Without hesitation - if you want the Best then don't even think about the rest. Joe Pet from A Beat Away Entertainment is a MUST for all of your wedding needs. I wish I could write more but its limited characters on this page
