DJ Joe really paid attention to our personalities and that showed based on what he played. Also, he gave our families and bridal party lots of recognition and "shout outs", which I think made them feel so special. Our night was amazing, and I wouldn't change a thing!

The best thing we ever did was to hire Joe to run our wedding ceremony and reception! Joe made sure our ceremony ran flawlessly - and made sure that my husband and I were miked so our guest could hear everything. Joe was extremely professional and made sure to pronounce every member's name correctly during announcements (not easy in my family)! Joe was plain awesome. Everyone told us that our wedding was the best paced wedding they had ever been to! There was enough time to enjoy every single moment. I truly believe that is thanks to Joe keeping things moving/slowing things down depending on the crowd. Joe made sure to check with my husband and I when necessary to see if he could move on to the next event on our itinerary. I even had enough time to calmly eat dinner! :) Joe was able to change up the music being played to match our audience and we had people dancing that NEVER dance! Thank you so much, Joe & Active Entertainment for making sure our wedding was perfect!

Chuck was AWESOME! He never let us worry about anything & if he saw a concerned look on my face he asked what was going on & took care of it. He even made a quick trip to the store for us; we realized right before dinner the there was something that was needed,he ran & picked it up for us. My new husband even offered to assist Chuck with loading his the equipment in the trailer, Chucks response was "You're the groom, be the groom and dance with your new wife" then he put another song on for us to dance to. I will be passing his card out to everyone I know!!!!!!!

No matter how little time is put into collaborating/preparing in unison with DJ Joe pre-wedding, you can be certain that you will have a confident and organized DJ that is passionate and completely present at your wedding. Joe definitely shows up at the event he is working and makes the couple feel special and valued.

I have saw Joe in action before at a wedding prior to mine, and I thought he was awesome. For our wedding, we dealt with Joe and Chuck. Chuck was the actual DJ for our wedding, and he was amazing. He helped the flow of the entire wedding go so smooth, I never felt worried about anything because he was on top of everything. I would absolutely recommend Active Entertainment to anyone who was in need of a DJ.

Absolutely the best deejay that we have ever seen. Our guests loved Joe's enthusiasm and music. He provided the outdoor ceremony music/audio. Joe Fila is more than a deejay; he truly is a reception coordinator. Joe made sure that every aspect of our wedding was amazing. From the up-lighting that he provided, to the slide production of us growing up, to making sure we had what we needed all through the night, Joe made it happen (he even brought us water while we were dancing to make sure we stayed hydrated). Our families raved about how great he was. He makes everyone feel special and really keeps the dance floor moving. He is the whole package for sure. He gave a little speech about us, which was very awesome. He is second to none. Once we booked, they got us an appointment to discuss wedding style and music choices. Just an awesome experience. Active Entertainment truly tailors the wedding to your wants and needs are. He made sure the bride stayed happy (A+). Over a dozen other couples booked with them that have either heard us talking about how great they are or saw them at the wedding. Just an amazing experience! Not only did he provide the great atmosphere, but Joe dressed extremely professional and looked very dapper. His set up is incredible. We changed the layout of our venue about a week before the wedding, and Joe said, "no problem I will work out the layout and it will be beautiful!" And it was. His prices are so great and a much better deal than those we found in the area. We are one of those couples that research every move we made for the wedding. I called over a dozen deejays. Active Entertainment was not only a great price but offered so much more for the money. The level of experience that they bring to the table is top notch. From a small wedding, to a wedding of 500+ like we had, Active Entertainment has what you are looking for. Cannot say enough great things about them! Joe made our reception a huge success!
