I cannot tell you how awesome Joe was! We planned the wedding from out of state. Joe went to our venue and worked with the coordinator on his own to make our day perfect. He covered so many details we didn't even think of! He took care of everything during the ceremony and reception and was so professional to work with. And let's talk about the music. He played great songs that got people on the dance floor and kept them there! Joe was recommended to us by a friend and hiring him for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. I would recommend Joe and Gotta Dance Dj's to any bride!

Joe was by FAR the most professional, fun, down-to-earth, organized, and incredibly talented DJ we have ever met or encountered at other weddings. From our first meeting to our wedding day, Joe was always responding to our questions within minutes or at the very latest, the end of that day. He went above and beyond to make sure he could accommodate our wishes/desire to have a GIANT 'Dance Party' of our reception....and he did JUST that. Our reception had open dancing from 9:30pm-12:30pm and not a single person was ready to get off the dance floor!! Our guests specifically noted how fantastic Joe was and continue to mention the AWESOME music he played all night long. I would strongly recommend Joe's services- you will not be disappointed. I enjoyed working Joe and look forward to seeing at my best friends wedding in December!!

Joe is absolutely amazing and we were so lucky to get him booked early on in our engagement. From the first moment we met him to the last dance of our reception, Joe was amazing. He deserves 5++ stars. Joe is professional, listens to your wants, quick follow up on all correspondence, and most important knows how to entertain the crowd. The ceremony went off without a hitch and we were so glad to have the wireless microphone that Joe provided so everyone could hear us recite our vows. Joe really handled the crowd well at the reception and both young and old were out on the dance floor. There wasn't a single song that the dance floor was empty. Joe didn't hang up any tacky signs. Joe didn't request any meal (although we certainly offered more than once) as he said his job is to entertain the entire ceremony and reception and he would eat before/afterwards. Joe dressed professionally. Again can't speak high enough about Joe and would highly recommend him.

You always hear that a DJ / MC can make or break your wedding. If this is one of your concerns (which it should be) then look no further! Joe at Gotta Dance DJ was amazing from start to finish. I'm bit OCD and music was probably the most important element of our wedding. Joe intently listened to all my ideas, offered valuable feedback and suggestions, then executed perfectly. He was always prompt to respond to my questions via email, available to meet over the phone or in person when I was in town (I live in Austin, TX), and constantly reassured me I was in the more than capable hands of someone who understood and respected my vision for our wedding. The video montage he put together was a HUGE hit - there were loads of ooohhs & ahhhhs throughout, and the video recap that came a few days later was just the cherry on top. Several people commented on how great our DJ was and the dance floor was packed the whole night! I highly recommend Gotta Dance DJ for your wedding DJ / MC needs - Joe is awesome!

Joe was absolutely amazing! We found him last minute and he was a great find! I was so impressed with his professionalism. Everything from what he sent us in the mail, our first meeting, his interaction with my overbearing family and the wedding were all so impressive. He sent me recommendations for the songs that we needed to pick out and had a great choice in music for everything else. He even made a cool video a few days after the wedding was over. I had so many great comments from the guests about the DJ. The best part was that he was priced very fair! I would highly recommend him to other brides!! Thanks for such an amazing day Joe!

Joe and Gotta Dance DJs are absolutely amazing! Communication with Joe has been optimal since I first contacted him to DJ our wedding. He is efficient, responsive, and organized. He played the songs we wanted to hear, and he kept the party going. Our guests even commented on how much our DJ "rocked the show". He went above and beyond our expectations, and we would highly recommend him for your wedding.

Working with Joe at Gotta Dance was a breeze!

I'm a firm believer that a wedding is only as stressful as you make it to be-and that great vendors make all the difference. Let me tell you...Gotta Dance is a great vendor!

We first called Gotta Dance three weeks before our wedding date. Our original date (Oct 26, 2013) had to be changed because of a surprise deployment, and our new date was Sept 22, 2013. Within just a few phone calls, we had everything set!

Then a week before the wedding, Colorado experienced the 500-year flood, and knowing that Joe was in Drake (between Loveland and Estes Park) we were worried about him. We had to change our venue 7 days before the wedding (from Estes Park to Genesee) and Joe was with us the whole way! We got a call from him saying that everything was alright and that he'd been helicoptered out, but he brought his suit so he could make it to the wedding! Talk about a dedicated guy!

Our ceremony and the music was perfect, exactly as we'd dreamed it would be. And Joe had the best music on hand for the reception! It was a great blend and really had everyone up and dancing. Couldn't have asked for a better mix...it was truly everything we'd hoped it would be!

Gotta Dance DJs is definitely a vendor that will make every bride's life easier, and Joe was great to work with!

I loved working with Joe! He was so responsive to every e-mail, did not play any cheesy music, created a play list that fit the mood / crowd, did a great job being our emcee....and most importantly of all....played EVERYTHING I requested! I would recommend Joe in a heartbeat.

He also had great pricing and provide an overall outstanding experience.

Thanks for a great night, Joe!

My husband and I picked Joe to be our wedding DJ. Joe was very professional during our meetings and anytime we communicated in emails. He planned everything out for us and never had a problem making changes when we requested them. Because of the flooding, Joe was unable to make it to our wedding...things were just completely out of his control! So, even though he did not actually DJ our wedding, I still wanted to recommend him! He is the greatest guy, so friendly and professional. We highly recommend him to any couple looking for a wedding DJ!!

I was absolutely blown away by the services we received from Joe at Gotta Dance DJ's. From his ability to keep me calm during a most stressful time (our wedding) to the flexibility he portrayed based on our specific needs, to the absolute perfection (and I truly mean perfection) he exhibited throughout the entire process (consultation, email and phone communication since our wedding was a destination in Colorado, set up, dj-ing the wedding itself (his song choices were spot on for the wide age range demographic of attendees) and follow up. I don't think I've ever given a vendor 5 stars. But in this case, I couldn't help but give the highest form of praise for Joe, our rock star DJ...thanks, Joe!

DJ Joe was amazing as our DJ/reception coordinator. He was professional and organized from our first encounter and really showed that he was invested in our day. He took care of everything during our reception and provided us with great timing for all of our events. When it came to music and dancing, there were people I've never seen dance before that were dancing all night. Friends left wanting him to be their DJ for their upcoming wedding, would recommend to anyone!

Joe was absolutely wonderful- reliable, responsible, direct, and enabled us and all of our guests to have an amazing wedding reception! His introductions and emceeing were top notch and guests danced throughout the night. Joe did a great job of taking our song preferences and creating playlists that felt just like "us"! His prices were reasonable and we would certainly recommend him to other couples!

This guy is unbelievable. Joe came as a reference from a friend and went above and beyond what I expected. He was extremely responsive and easy to work with. He asked the right questions and didn't waste our time. When it came to quick decisions during the reception, I couldn't have made better calls.
Joe helped with our lighting, music selection, pace/schedule of reception, set up, break down and follow up.
I have never been around a wedding where more people were talking about how great the DJ was. Usually they're like umpires: if they go unnoticed they're good...but people were actually talking about how great he was.
Definitely recommend him for any type or size reception.

From the moment we met Joe we were so excited to have him as our DJ. Throughout the whole planning process, Joe was kind, professional and prompt. Every time I had a question for him he was quick to return phone calls. And as it got closer to our wedding and we kept changing the music, and Joe was accommodating and did whatever we asked of him. Joe also did the music for our ceremony and he did an amazing job. He kept everything on schedule and didn't miss a beat. The reception was so much fun as wel. Our friends spent a lot of time outside smoking, which made Brett and I kinda upset, but joe was able to get them inside and on the dance floor so we could all have a great time. And we did!!! Throughout the night there were special request made and he was totally accomidating, and when the night ended I asked Joe to play a few more songs because the party was still going, and he was more than happy to. He was abouslutly amazing and I could not have asked for a better DJ. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a DJ!! I really believe that if you want to have an amazing wedding, the DJ makes a huge difference, and Joe is the man for the job! Thanks Joe and if we ever need to hire another DJ, you are our man!

Hurry up and reserve Joe before he's booked! Joe DJ'd our wedding in June in Boulder. He's extremely professional and efficient. When we first met with Joe he came prepared with a folder outlining lots of ideas for song choices for things like the entrance, cake cutting, etc. This was extremely helpful considering all the other things we had on our plate.

The night of the wedding went flawless. I've received tons of compliments on the set Joe played. There was truly something for everyone and the dance floor was full all night!

We absolutely recommend Joe!

Everything about working with Joe was fabulous. From our first meeting, Joe put us at ease with his vast experience, impressive organization, attention to detail and obvious passion for his job. He was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns during the planning process. The day of the wedding Joe did not disappoint--he was one of the earliest vendors to arrive at the wedding site to ensure everything went flawlessly. He was kind, respectful and enthusiastic with our families and guests. It almost seemed he doubled as a planner or captain with his organized execution of all the details of the wedding timeline. We have nothing but praises for his playlists and creating the atmosphere and feel we had hoped for. You'd be crazy to choose anyone else for your wedding!!

Joe, with Gotta Dance Dj's, is extremely professional and hard working. We contacted him about a month before our wedding because our other DJ that we had hired went out of business, but Joe came to our rescue! He was prompt in responding to us and was available. He put together all of our music in a very short period of time. He never took a break during our wedding or reception. We had many guest comment that Joe was fun, very professional, and a great DJ! If we ever need a DJ again, we will definitely hire Gotta Dance DJ's again!

Joe was THE Best vendor that we had at our wedding, and that says a lot because we had some really great vendors. I would highly recommend him! He is VERY organized, personable, fun, on the ball, calm, and has an awesome Chicago accent (which we loved, being from the midwest). As my husband just stated to me as his feedback about Joe, "He did awesome!" Joe spent ample time answering our questions and walking us through the evening, step by step. And when it came to the actual wedding reception, Joe was seriously all that I could have asked for and more. He would always give us a warning before the next event of the evening, he kept things on time and running smoothly, and people danced A LOT and really enjoyed him as our DJ. From my uncles to our parents to our friends, the dancing was active and the music and lights were awesome. Multiple people commented about what a fun wedding we had and what great music was played, and Joe was a big part of that! I probably danced more than anyone -haha. Thank you Joe for making our evening so much fun!!!

The top priority for me when we were picking vendors for the wedding was the DJ as far as we were concerned he/she could make or break the wedding. We called 12 DJ's and personally interviewed 7. When we first met Joe he got to the meeting early and was dressed very professionally. He showed us videos of past weddings and gave us a brochure with all the fees on a line item. There were no surprises with him like with some of the other DJ's we interviewed. I really appreciated his positive attitude and professionalism and I always got the feeling whatever I asked him to do he would make it happen somehow. With so many things to worry about in pulling off a wedding he was the one person I knew I didn't have to worry about and that brought me peace. He also produced and emailed us within 2 days after the wedding a short Youtube/Facebook ready video which he didn't charge extra for and we had no idea he was doing. He went above and beyond what we expected and all our guest commented on how much they loved him. You will not go wrong if you hire him for your wedding. So you can stop wasting your time interviewing other DJ's and just hire straight away. It will be one less thing to worry about with your wedding. Mike (Father of the Bride).

He was extremely professional, always got back to me within a couple of days and the big day... I couldn't have been happier. The reception was amazing. We got so many compliments on how well he organized the first dance, speeches, cake cutting, etc. I could rant and rave forever but bottom line is, Joe is phenomenal.

My husband and I planned a Denver wedding from NYC (me) and Sydney (husband) and we could not have done it without Joe. He was absolutely fantastic and with wealth of experience, he made our night unforgetable. We chose a spacious venue, the Denver Art Museum, and he filled up the space with warm lighting and music that everyone enjoyed. The dance floor was completely filled with eager dancers, and the 25ft vaulted ceiling was flooded with bliss lighting and up lighting. He was the PERFECT DJ. He met with me a few months prior to the wedding and he immediately put me at ease. I can't say one bad thing about working with Joe. He's an absolute must!!!

He made the day flow so well and we could not have been happier with the outcome of our reception. I would recommend Joe to anyone I know getting married that is looking for a DJ. He is much much more than just a DJ, he plans everything perfectly. Thanks again Joe for making our wedding special and without any stress or worry.

Myself and the groom live on either coast, neither of us in CO, so finding (and hiring!) Joe was the best thing that happened to our wedding.

It started with paperclips. The groom contacted Gotta Dance DJ’s for further information about booking, and Joe sent an organized and detailed folder of information. It was held together with cool little paperclips that I got to hear the groom gush over. The packet helped us plan our wedding timeline. Joe was communicative, helpful, and would catch the details that we forgot to fill in.

As long distance planners, we took advantage of Joe’s flexibility and he likewise worked to keep us informed. While I was in CO, Joe drove to meet with me, and afterwards, continued to be responsive to our emails, phone calls, and would arrange to Skype as needed. He was insightful and offered helpful suggestions relating to venue. Specifically, he realized a lighting option the groom wanted would be obscured by the venue’s A/C system. Rather than let us get something that wouldn’t work, Joe pointed this out and suggested a different system that cost us less and looked fantastic.

Another high point is the sound system. This stellar sound system rang clear throughout the ceremony and reception. It was so good that my engineering father commented on it during our walk down the aisle. Joe also took care that the sound levels were appropriate during dinner so our guests could converse. Then he lead a smooth segue into dancing so guests could start dancing.

Dancing was so much fun! There was no cheesy music, just lots of good songs that got people moving, swaying, and flipping on the dance floor. While Gotta Dance DJ’s already has a large repertoire of music, Joe accommodated our harder-to-find music, which was much appreciated.

We would readily hire Joe again and highly recommend him for your event. His professionalism shone throughout the planning and on our wedding day. Our relatives and friends are still talking about “that DJ”.

Joe was AMAZING. We hired him to do the ceremony music as well as the main reception music. He met with us twice before the event, which I think is imperative since it's such a big part of the night. He was not cheesy and didn't play any lame songs. He played all of the songs on our must play list and we really enjoyed working with him. He is very professional, nice and so easy to work with. He is organized and really has a lot of experience and know's exactly what to do. My guests loved him! Our event was 8 hours long and he had people on the dance floor the entire time. There were still at least 25 people on the dance floor at midnight. Please remember that you get what you pay for when looking for a DJ. The cheapest DJ is going to most likely provide you the cheapest product. He is reasonably priced and again, is wonderful at what he does. We highly recommend him!

We knew within the first few minutes of meeting Joe that he was the DJ for our wedding -- and we feel blessed that we found him! There are no words to describe what an amazing job he did - The DJ sets the entire tone for your wedding and thanks to Joe and Gotta Dance DJs our wedding was PERFECT! He single handedly made sure the entire evening ran smoothly -- we didn'thave to worry about a thing - he was professional and personable and he went WAY above and beyond the call of duty -- I will be recommending Gotta Dance DJs to everyone I know. He did everything he said he would and more -- I can't thank Joe enough for all the time and work he put in to make sure our big day was perfect!

If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding in the Denver area, you have no need to look any further. My husband and I were blown away by Joe and his professionalism, personality, and most importantly, the awesome music he played at our wedding. First of all, the day for us can only be described as the most hectic day of our lives (and we had thought that we had everything planned so well) but Joe helped us to stay on track with our timeline and kept things running smoothly which was such a relief. Secondly, his choice of songs was perfect...people were dancing and having such a great time and I LOVED how he didn't play the typical wedding songs that I get so sick of (YMCA, Jock Jams, etc). Thirdly, if you are hesitating at all to get any of the lighting options, I HIGHLY recommend the bliss light. We had a tent for our reception and when he turned on the bliss light as it was getting dark, it took the reception up an extra notch and it looked AMAZING. We didn't get any other additional lighting but I'm sure that would've been amazing too. I just can't rave enough about Joe and I know that anyone else will be just as happy with him as we were!

I am so glad that we found Joe and Gotta Dance DJ's! He was a terrific choice for our wedding and I hands down recommend him to anyone looking for that extra special touch!

First off! He is SOOOO organized and on top of details! It was great to know I could trust him right away! He has a wedding folder he gives you that helps you make all the decisions along the way for your entertainment needs! He was honest about what package would suit our venue the best and added some really cool lighting affects that just made it sparkle!

Joe is such a great guy and dedicates his life to your event! He is prepared and super charismatic! He kept up with the changes in our wedding day timeline like a pro! Even when they were last minute!

He provided the sound for our ceremony and it was wonderful! Although he started to play the wrong music as my bridal party was going down the aisle he quickly switched the music and it sounded impeccable you would have never noticed! The sound for the readers and our officiant was top of the line! Everyone could hear us!!!!

He then transitioned into cocktail hour where some of our favorite songs played! :)

He has a great voice to introduce people! At times I felt like we could have sped a few things up with introducing the bridal party but it allowed me to sit back and breathe for a second! His mics were great and we used them for the blessing, the toasts and even for my cousin to sing! The dinner music was at a perfect volume and perfect tempo! The dance floor was packed all night! The music was AMAZING! he did a great job and he honored our DO NOT PLAY list! Which was great!

His sound system and lighting is top notch! I hope we get to work with Joe again! He is reputable and fantastic! He cares so much about what he does and it shows! We loved him and would totally use him again! :) Thanks JOE! You rock!

Joe from Gotta Dance was wonderful! He was so quick to respond to any communication and took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for during our consultation. My husband and I love to dance and having everyone out on the dance floor with us at the reception was one of our biggest priorities for the day. Joe did not disappoint! Each song he chose got people on their feet and dancing - from toddlers to senior citizens! I can't recommend him enough!

We read all of Joe's reviews before we met with him. Joe lived up to the hype! He was very professional from beginning to end. He was the one vendor we didnt have to worry about! We had Joe dj our ceremony and reception. The music was flawless, the sound was crisp, the volume was Perfect! He was not a typical wedding DJ. He was a mixmaster. We noticed he would pull the next song into the current song during the party! OUr Dance floor was FULL the ENTIRE wedding!!! That was all we wanted was for everyone to have a GREAT time. Without Joe, that wouldnt have happened! We were even surprised with a special video the day after our wedding! Thank you So Much Joe!!! You made our reception unforgetable for all of our guests!!!

We cannot say enough great things about Joe! He is organized and has a great vision on how best to keep the event flowing. Joe kept us at the center of the celebration -- truly professional. He was polite and respectful to us and all our guests. Most importantly, he made our party GREAT -- from the music to the lights to the energy! He had the party going until the very end! We received so many compliments on our DJ and would absolutely recommend him again and again! Thanks, Joe!!

I interviewed a lot of different DJs and just wasn't finding one that seemed right for us. I found Joe on the Knot and saw that he was moving from Chicago to Denver. He had such great reviews that I had to meet with him. All those reviews were 100% accurate! I can't even express how wonderful Joe was to work with! He made our wedding so much better than I thought possible! He was great to work with and was completely flexible with last minute changes that I needed to make a few days before the wedding. He played such a great selection of music and everyone that I've talked to has said what a great party it was and that was thanks to Joe! I loved the video he put together for us as well! Such a special thing to have only days after the wedding since we have to wait for a while to get pictures and the video back. I can't say thank you enough!

Finding a DJ was the hardest part for me as I planned our wedding... When I found Gotta Dance DJs and was able to meet Joe in person I knew I had nothing to worry about! He was incredibly organized, gave us great direction, and displayed an obvious passion for what he does! Our reception ROCKED-- the lighting was fantastic, the music was perfect, and people literally never stopped dancing. It couldn't have been better!

Joe was incredible! From the first time we met with Joe we could tell he was a complete professional who truly enjoyed and took pride in his work. This was made only more obvious as our wedding date neared and he made sure that the final details were in place before the big day (even when we got side tracked with other areas of planning). The day of our wedding we did not even need to check to make sure that Joe was set up and ready with the correct music, volume, or anything. In fact, he took it upon himself to get in touch with our location manager and visit the site before the wedding date to insure he was prepared. The ceremony music was spot on and the reception was a non-stop party thanks to Joe! Ordinarily at weddings people start to filter out before the night is over - but not this time. The music was so great that no one wanted to stop dancing! The night was completely perfect and that was due mostly to Joe's hard work behind the scenes. We have no reservations in recommending 'gotta dance djs' and can only comment that he probably does not charge enough for the quality product that he delivers! We only wish there were more than five stars to give!

Joe did an amazing job at our wedding. He was great at keeping everyone dancing thru the night, no one wanted to leave the dance floor. He was very professional and would ask permission before doing anything that was not on the list we gave him. If any one asks for a DJ we will definitely recommend Joe.

We immediately booked Joe for lighting and sound after the fantastic job he did at my girlfriends wedding. Joe is the one vendor we booked that did not have a hidden agenda and followed through on all his promises. Joe is professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and really goes above and beyond for the bride and groom. I highly recommend Joe for all your Dj and lighting needs. I even referred him to my other friend for her wedding this December. He will not disappoint!

Joe was an amazing DJ. To begin, he was extremely professional in the planning for the wedding. He was always 15 minutes early. Meeting with him gave us great comfort that we were in good hands. Joe was very reassuring that everything was going to be taken care of and we would have nothing to worry about. On our wedding day, Joe delivered exactly what he promised and more! As our MC, Joe kept everything moving smoothly and upbeat. Our introductions were very energetic and fun. Our first dance was beautiful. The music for each event in the wedding was masterfully selected and unique. Joe promised that the dance floor would never be empty and he couldn't have been more right. Our dance floor was always packed and had such high energy. Everyone is still buzzing about how much fun they had. Many friends and family had said that they have never seen so many people dancing at a wedding and that it was easily the most fun wedding they have ever attended. Of course we were very sad at the end of the night that it was all over, but a few days later Joe posted a video that we hadn't even noticed that he had made. The video was amazing and featured all of the highlights of our beautiful day.

Joe is an extremely talented man and we would recommend him over anyone. You would be crazy to overlook this man. Joe, while it's a shame to see you leave the Chicago area, we wish you the best in Denver. We know you will be very successful.

Best wishes,
Mr. and Mrs. Tanner Seal

We were lucky enough to have Joe DJ/Emcee our wedding on October 1st of this year and we were MORE than pleased. Joe was a dream to work with and very flexible. Due to my husband's and mine schedules we were never able to meet with Joe face to face and were able to make plans and decisions over the phone and through email and everything turned out PERFECT! We left cocktail hour and dinner music in his hands and he delivered...we received so many compliments on the great variety (and appropriateness) of his selections...our dance floor was packed all night!! We cannot say enough wonderful about him and his services!

I'm not sure where to start with this DJ. He was unbelievable. He is so dedicated to his work and truly treats it like a craft which I feel is a lost cause in the disc jockey business. He was very detailed with the whole process and how it should flow. He walked us step-by-step so we would truly understand what was going to happen now and what was going to happen next. He was very clear and concise and easy to understand...which was a blessing considering how much me and my wife had on our minds. The place looked amazing because of his lighting and the music from the ceremony throughout the reception sounded awesome. Of course, the key was the reception and a DJ's effort to get the crowd rockin'...and he didn't disappoint. He played some great music...some true jams and the dance floor at our wedding looked like a nightclub. It was fantastic. I don't want to forget the other music he played for my italian relatives...especially the older relatives. He mixed in some great, old school italian jams and really mixed it up well throughout the night. All-in-all, his DJ'ing stole the show on our wedding night and we couldn't be more prouder than to call him our DJ...thanks Gotta Dance DJs for making our wedding night a memorable one!!!

The music selection was amazing, the up-lighting was romantic and the night flowed exactly how we wanted! We received SO many complements on the music and the way the night went! Joe kept us in the loop at all times and ran things absolutely perfectly. I don't think there was ever a moment the dance floor wasn't packed! The photo montage was beautiful and he even did it with very short notice on our part (THANKS JOE!!!) We could not have asked for a better DJ for our wedding and we truly thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making that one of the most memorable nights of our lives!

This was our favorite vendor to work with. We can not say enough great things about him. Professional, on top of his game the entire night. We did not give him a lot of direction and he rocked it. Everyone was dancing all night. So many people commented that they never left the dance floor. He also made a short video for us. It was so great getting this since we have not seen anything from our photographer or videographer yet. I can not reccomend them enough!

I can't give Gotta Dance DJ a high enough rating! My husband and I were so unbelievably happy with the music and lighting at our wedding reception. From our first meeting, Joe was always very professional, in dress, speech, and demeanor. He took all of our requests into account and put them into effect during the reception without a single misstep.

He steadily built the energy of the music during dinner, so that everyone was verry ready to dance when the floor opened. He also did a great job reacting to the type of music people seemed to be most enjoying and playing more of it. At the end of the night, our family and friends were still going strong on the dance floor chanting, "One more dance!" DJ Gotta Dance happily complied!

Joe was so great! Our initial meeting with him proved he was prompt, organized, and very thorough. Lots of DJs we looked at were not very professional and we heard plenty of disaster stories from friends who got married about their DJ. Joe was so professional and I never had to chase him down for anything (like I did some other vendors). Always responded quickly to emails and questions. On our wedding day, he acted on his feet- we missed most of our cocktail hour for pictures and therefore most of the music we picked out for it. He waited to play those songs we had picked and added them to our short dinner playlist- very thoughtful. Our dance floor was packed most of the night and he kept to our wishes of our must-play list. Overall, with our vendors, trust was really important. I always felt comfortable with his judgement. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding or any other event!

Joe was not only the best DJ we found, he was the most organized and knowledgeable. He was early to our appointments, extremely professional, and had an amazing mannerism (very nice & easy going). I was so happy to have a great DJ who knew exactly what he was doing. The dance floor was never empty and many of our guests complemented on how great the music was and how great our DJ was! Thank you for everything Joe! Keep up the wonderful work!

Joe was the DJ for my wedding this past August and I could not have been HAPPIER with him. Everything he did was absolutley amazing and I am so pleased. I honestly can not express in words how great he was. He was absolutely worth more than we paid. He helped keep the wedding on track, ran any requested songs by us before playing them, and made sure that my husband and I were in the room when he played the songs on our "must play" list. Because of my wonderful experience with Joe I tell everyone I know who is planning a wedding to make sure they get a GREAT DJ because it really makes a difference. I would use Gotta Dance DJ's again in a heart beat!!! THANK YOU JOE!!!! Thank you for helping to make our wedding wonderful! :)

We found Gotta Dance DJ through a co-workers recommendation. We scheduled our first meeting with Joe and he met us near where we live and was so professional. He definitely impressed us and we decided to book. As the wedding drew closer, we decided to also have Joe do our ceremony music. He provided us with documents to outline our music selections including lists of suggested songs to guide us. We were able to choose songs not on his lists without a problem. We had a final meeting with Joe before the wedding to go over all of the details. Again his professionalism was stellar. Before the wedding he emailed us final copies of the outlines for both the ceremony and the reception to be sure we had all the details ironed out. Everything was perfect.

On the wedding day, Joe was at the ceremony site early and all set to go before we even arrived. The sound equipment was awesome and the music sounded spectacular. He timed the music perfectly and everything went so smoothly. It was so wonderful to have some of our favorite songs as part of our wedding.

At the reception, Joe played the perfect music to set the cocktail hour mood. During dinner, the awesome music continued. He made sure to check in with us about the timing of our first dance and dances with our parents. When it was time for the party to get started, he had everyone off their feet. Everyone from my 3 year old nephew to my husbands grandma were dancing. He really played the music we wanted to hear, and mixed in music for everyone. He also would beat mix one song into the next so there was never a dull moment. As the bride, with only 2 hours of sleep the night before, you think I'd be tired by the end and need to take a break. But the songs and dancing were just so much fun I kept dancing like crazy the whole night. Joe really impressed our guests too. The days following the wedding we had so many compliments on how awesome our DJ was and that it was the best wedding ever. I might be a little biased towards my own wedding, but I must say I have never had so much fun at a wedding reception. My guests were all happy dancing the night away and Joe made it happen. At the end of the night, he even checked in to see if we had any final song requests and ran a few songs ideas past me.

We couldn't have been happier or have found a better DJ. I would recommend Gotta Dance DJ's to anyone. There was not a moment on our wedding day that we second guessed our choice. Joe was amazing to work with. My only regret is how fast time flies when you are having fun, and boy did we have fun!!!!

Joe was absolutely fantastic. My only regret is that he's taking his talents to Colorado and none of my friends or family will be able to use him for their events. Joe was the ideal professional and was great with the crowd. He managed to keep a lot of people dancing all night long. I've never seen a dance floor so crowded at a wedding before. There are usually lags in the music, but Joe kept a perfect mix of genres and tempos to keep everyone thrilled all night long. Thank you so very much for all of the hard work, Joe. My wife and I could not be happier. Joe also did the music for our ceremony and his equipment for an outdoor ceremony is perfect. An amazing DJ in all aspects. Keep up the amazing work.

I knew I wanted to go with Joe immediately after meeting him. His ability to come to you for consultations is a huge plus, and his professionalism and straightforward approach put him over the top. Plus his prices were the best out of all the DJs I met with. He was easy to work with and had no problem incorporating some unique music choices--stuff that isn't even on iTunes for him to download. The ceremony music transitioned really well, and my entrance hit the music just perfect--a moment I will truly never forget. He did a great job with some difficult last names during introductions and kept the crowd lively and engaged. Several times at both dinner and the reception people stopped to comment about hearing a song they love/wouldn't have expected/was awesome. Compliments regarding him kept rolling in after the wedding and the short video he made on the side was great. I wish he weren't moving because people are already asking for referrals.

We had our ceremony outdoors with a satellite speaker setup, which he left up during the reception, so the music was everywhere! He was so encouraging about our choices (never judgemental) and kept everyone dancing all night. Joe went above and beyond all expectations!!!

We found Joe based on his outstanding reviews online. After reading all of his great reviews, we decided to meet with him. Let's just say that Joe was the first and only DJ we met with. We were so impressed with Joe's professionalism, his experience, his equipment, and his overall friendly demeanor that we booked him immediately. When it came time for our meeting with Joe to finalize our reception music, he was excellent! Not only did he truly listen to us and what we wanted, he offered suggestions based on what he thought we would want and he was right on target! From our first interaction with Joe, we knew that he was truly a pro at what he does and knew that our reception music would be awesome! We gave him ideas of what we like and what we don't like and he created the PERFECT music set at our reception. Our dinner music was like no other wedding I've ever been to! We got so many compliments on our dinner music because it wasn't your typical "wedding playlist" that's so cookie cutter and overdone. Joe mixed the perfect blend of old and new and everyone absolutely loved it! As for the dancing--our guests were dancing ALL night long! The dance floor was lit with really cool lights and everyone was having funl! We loved everything and so did our guests! We just can't thank Joe enough for creating such an amazing night for us. Denver will be very lucky to have Gotta Dance DJ's and the Chicagoland area will truly miss him! :)

We got married Friday June 10th and I cannot even begin to say how great of a job Joe did for our wedding reception! He worked with our budget and had our dance floor packed all night long. From the very beginning he made us feel comfortable, meeting with us at our local bar. His prices were very competitive and he def helped us work with our budget. He suggested we get the surround sound since our wedding was so large. It was great! The sound, superb, his equipment very modern and excellent quality! He even last minute helped us make a slide show (although I originally planned on making my own lol) Joe also provided us with uplighting in these awesome shades of purple.

All in all we had a GREAT experience working with Joe and Gotta Dance DJs, I would recommend him to everyone!!!

Thanks again Joe,

Joe was very fun and professional. He met with my husband and I well in advance. He provided a very clear contract with pricing options, packages, and a helpful form with an outline of music for the various portions of the reception. He had several great suggestions, he played the music we asked, and everyone had a really good time. I loved the surprise video he complied of the first dance and last dance. We received it while on the honeymoon.

We were so happy that we went with Joe and Gotta Dance DJs. He was so personable and professional. He met with us twice before our wedding and was so nice to drive out to wherever it was convenient for us to meet. He went through all the music we liked and didn't like and we went over a detailed summary of how the day would play out so that when the wedding came, it was seamless. He played fantastic music. And let me tell you he had his work cut out for him. My family wanted to hear classic rock and oldies, our friends pop and hip hop, I wanted some jazz and French music as a nod to the fact that my husband and I met in Paris, and my husband is Mexican so his family wanted to hear salsas, merengues, and cumbias! He still managed to make everyone happy. I have to say, that was amazing!

I am so happy I did because the reviews spoke for themselves. Joe was an awesome DJ who was very helpful, kept everyone dancing all night, was a pleasure to work with, and was original. If you want one of the best DJ's ever please contact them because they will surely liven up the party! (My husband isn't easily impressed and he kept talking about how great they were in keeping the party going). We definetly recommend them!!!

He was all about me and my fiance! We had a little bit of a difficult family situation and he not only understood, but was willing to work around things. The night was amazing and everyone was dancing, even people I didn't think would dance! Everyone I've talked to after the wedding gave compliments to the DJ! HIGHLY recommended!

If there was an option to rate over 5, I would give you the highest rating!!! You guys out did yourselves!!! From the music to the photo montage and our name in lights (which I believe we we were the 1st wedding you did that for and it turned out flawless)!!! The banquet hall looked magical with all the uplighting!!! Our guests still can't stop talking about how AWESOME the music was. You did a fantastic job at getting all our guests out to shake their booty!!! Unlike other weddings I have been to, everyone was on the dancefloor instead of their seats for a change!! The idea of dancing in between each course which is not typical, was an Awesome idea! It kept all our guests entertained and pumped to kick off the dancing all night long! Everyone loved this new touch! I am sure you will start a new trend! Keep up the GREAT work!!

Joe from gotta dance djs was the dj at my wedding this december 2010 and he was absolutely amAZing from the first time we met until the very end of our special night!...Joe was recommended to me by a coworker who just raved about his excellence at her daughters wedding over the summer and told me i just had to go with him! We set up an appointment which by the way he comes to a local starbucks of yours which with our work schedules i have to say saved us a whole lot of time and trouble! i also thought that was a very professional way of doing our meet ups...he also greeted us with bottled waters and a table already set up with his information and music as soon as we walked in the door...we never had to wait for him to get anything together he was always very prepared!...after our final meeting about a few weeks before the wedding i walked out feeling so releived and pumped about our wedding night...joe reassured me that he had everything taken care of and that i dont have to worry about anything! which was music to my ears for a bride who had to plan her own wedding in 3-1/2months while working 2 jobs.As far as the actual night you may wanna make sure you have your refresher bag ladies cuz you will not want to get off the dance floor!...i love to dance and thats all i wanted to do all night and thanks to joe the dance floor was going non stop all night...just when i thought i was safe to get a drink of water another of my favorites would start playing!it was the best!!...he also fades each song into the next so you dont have that akward time period between each song. joe also isnt the type to get obnoxious on the microphone and try to steal the show...its all about the bride and grooms wishes with him--whatever you say goes!...he was fabulous and i would recommend him to anyone!...Good luck brides to be:)

I searched around for a DJ for our wedding and out of all the people I spoke with Joe was by far the most professional and prepared. From the moment we started talking I knew he was our guy! Our venue was odd shaped with multiple rooms and Joe made it work! He put in extra effort by visiting our venue beforehand to lay out the space. I would certainly recommend him to anyone of my friends for their event. Our friends had fun dancing the night away and we got so many compliments on how good he was! A great value! Thanks Joe you rock!!!

If I could give more then 5 stars i would. Joe was an amazing DJ. I went to 9 weddings this year and Joe was defiantly the best DJ I heard at all of them. The energy was there all night. We had requested several songs that he did not have in his library and had no problem purchasing them for us. Joe was very friendly and was more then willing to work with us. Two people from our wedding have already requested his information from us.

We couldn't have been happier with Joe and Gotta Dance. He catered the experience to our tastes while still keeping the dance floor full for the entire reception. We had a big dance floor and Joe kept it full (overflowing at times) with both young and old. The uplighting package was a great and affordable add-on that added a lot of class to the room (not cheesy strobe lights, but nice ascent lighting). Joe was easy to meet with, responded to are emails promptly and even changed around the order of events when the reception hall made changes in the final week. We gave him a list of music for cocktails and Joe filled in the rest with music that fit our tastes perfectly. You can pay a lot more for a DJ or band, but I don't think you are going to get anyone better than Gotta Dance. And they actually have upfront pricing and don't pressure you at all. You meet with the guy that is going to be at the wedding, which is big. He reads the room well with his music selections and doesn't do any annoying DJ things like sirens, flashing lights, or yelling "let's get this party started." Only complaint - he played ABBA, but that was our fault for not including it on the no-play list.

Joe is AWESOME.

From the first time my husband and I sat down with him, we knew right away he was the perfect choice. He picked up right away on the kind of music we liked, and the kinds we didn't. He really means it when he says 'no cheese'. He was so patient with us, considering we knew more what we didn't want than what we wanted. It took us forever to pick some of the special songs, and he had great suggestions. He also had no problem with our special requests - even the weird ones that my dad insisted on!

And then the wedding itself - amazing. Joe helped set the room up beautifully, the uplighting was a wonderful touch. He was so flexible and easygoing - even with the extra surprises (our best man's speech was... different!).

Our guests literally could not wait to get on the dance floor. We were dancing before it was even officially 'open', and didn't stop until the very end. He kept everything running so smoothly the entire night.

Joe is really a pleasure to work with, very professional, very organized, and very talented!

I can't say enough about Gotta Dance DJ's. I don't know why anyone would go with any other DJ. Joe was really great throughout the entire wedding planning process and was so flexible with out meeting times and helped me through every part of the planning for our reception. While he offered me the option of being as selective as I wanted to be with my reception song choices I only wanted to make a few choices (such as my first dance song, daddy and bride song, etc). I left everything else up to him and he kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. All of my guests made a point to complement me on my DJ choice and said he was the best DJ they have seen at a wedding! He made my wedding planning process so easy, I completely trusted him to take over the music selection (as he is the professional) and he proved me right! He made my wedding day so special and any issues that came up he was right on top of it! He made it a point to make sure I was happy, my guests were happy and that all went smoothly. Joe was on top of everything going on at my wedding so he could be prepared for anything that might come up! I loved knowing that everyone loved my DJ and that we all had such an awesome time! Besides all that, Gotta Dance DJ was worth every penny and they don't break your wedding budget! I think they actually should raise their cost as Joe was worth more than I paid!

Joe was outstanding in every category. I'm kind of picky and had trouble with some of my vendors because I was very specific. Both my husband (that still sounds weird to say!) and I liked Joe from the minute we met him. He has such a fantastic personality. He seemed to know what we wanted before we did. Tom and I are in our 40's but our guests ranged from 80 to 16. Joe tailored the music perfectly so that the older music was played earlier in the evening and the current stuff was played when the old folks were already in bed! He took suggestions from the crowd and was very good about playing them because all I told him was "Keep that crowd dancing!!"

He also was a fabulous emcee throughout the evening and worked very well with both our soloist and our pianist.

I've often wondered if these reviews were legit, if the vendors were getting their friends to write reviews for them. Well, I can tell you that this is legit and I recommend Joe without a moment's hesitation.

We hired Joe for our wedding reception on 08-28-10 and couldn't be happier with his service! Joe was our favorite vendor to work with in preparation for our big day. He was very responsive to our emails, questions, etc. starting from the very first day we inquired about his services. Some vendors seem to neglect you once you've signed a contract and paid the deposit, but Joe kept in touch with us throughout the upcoming months preceeding our wedding. He was very flexible and worked around our schedule for all of our pre-wedding meetings. He went above and beyond with our wedding party introductions, and most importantly, his music kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! We never had any awkward moments with an empty dance floor as many wedding receptions do. All of our friends told us that they have never danced that much at a wedding before. We highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for a DJ service! Thanks again Joe!

He was very accomodating with some last minute decisions and changes that we made. Our guests ranged in age and have many different music preferences but their comments were all the same - great music, great dj! The photo montage that he offers is a must! He did a great job organizing that for us and our guests loved the extra touch. I recommend Gotta Dance DJ's for any entertainment needs!

I have never been ANYWHERE that people crowded the dance floor from the first note to the last - his choice of songs and his ability to "read the crowd" is incredible! Also, during the dinner hour, his music choices, based on our vague request, was met with compliment after compliment from our guests. He also took the responsibilty of "running the event" away from me so I could enjoy the day and didn't spend one moment worrying about anything, as I knew Joe was taking care of everything.

Out of all the vendors we met with, Gotta Dance DJ's was by far the most accommodating. Joe really made it convenient, he drove an hour to meet us and any questions we had about his equipment or packages, he provided pictures and videos for us to see. His cocktail and dinner music selections were a mix of old and new stuff. And towards the end of dinner he picked up the tempo so our guests couldn't wait to get on the dance floor! My family and friends were dancing at their tables! Needless to say, the dance floor stayed packed the entire night - without the need of cheesy, typical wedding songs. Joe went above and beyond our expectations - thanks again for rockin' it out and keepin' it professional!

Joe was an amazing DJ. My family and friends couldn't stop saying great things about the DJ and how much fun they had. He took requests that everyone had, asked our opinions if he had any questions. Was not annoying with the microphone, just what needed to be done and played a variety of great music. I liked that he came up to us and asked if our parents were nearby when it came time for the important dances. He also asked when we would do boquet/garter, not just announcing it, he took our opinions and timing into great consideration.
I have nothing but positive comments about Gotta Dance! Very professional! I had NO stress because of the great DJ!!!

So I had a perfect wedding, and Joe from GottaDance Djs was a key player in making sure our night went smoothly. Everything was very organized and well planned out from Joe's end, and it allowed my wife and I to just enjoy the evening, knowing that he had things under control. Many of our guests commented on what a wonderful job GottaDance did. The dancing and the energy level they encouraged was awesome. Joe was also very attentive to what music we wanted and more importantly what songs we didnt want. No Cheese, just a unique, personalized experience. I recommend GottaDance Djs to anyone who is in need of quality disc jockey services. My wife and I couldnt have been happier.

Joe had his mic and it saved the day...crystal clear! I had my best friend sing our first dance song at our reception, the sound system and mic Joe provided was exceptional. Joe kept the dance floor packed, did a fabulous job and we had SO many compliments on the music that day... In fact, we are STILL getting compliments. I've recommended Gotta Dance to everyone I know and will continue to do so! Thank you again for doing such a fantastic job!

This DJ company was SUPERB and our reception was the BEST ever. It was the littlest details that even I didn't think about, for example, my parents were celebrating their 30th anniversary and we wanted a cake to be presented. Joe suggested that me and my husband present the cake and then he would announce a dance to their original first dance song from their wedding day...Great Idea!!!

A few things about Gotta Dance Dj's is that there are no surprises, they did their job and so much more, they always answered their phone, always replied promptly to emails and always made time for us. Joe really made our reception a fun and enjoyable one and I would love others to have the great experience we had (people are still talking about our reception!). Thanks Joe!

He met with us before the wedding and was there to help us every step of the way. He was great with music suggestions and accommodated us with our cultural music.

I was so nervous about hiring a DJ based on reviews but it was the best thing that I did. We only gave him about 60 must play songs and told him that he can just "Do his thing" and he did it!!! The dance floor was packed the whole night, he read the crowd so good it was like he was a part of the family. I was nervous since my husband and I are from different cultures with different tastes of music but the DJ mixed everything so well. It was awesome.

Even a month later everyone is still raving about how awesome our DJ was and how our wedding was the most fun. Hiring Gotta Dance DJ�s ensures that your party will be a success!! Thanks so much Joe!!!

AMAZING!! My husband and I thought it was going to be difficult to find a DJ that would appeal to our guests as well as our liking of music. Both my husband and I have a large Italian Family, we thought it was going to be difficult to incorporate cultural music to our celebration...WERE WE WRONG!! We were referred to Gotta Dance Dj's thru a family friend who has used them on numerous events! (Weddings, Birthdays, Baptism). When we met with Joe to discuss options/music genre, he mentioned to us if there is ANY music you want that I do not have, I would be more than happy to get it! However, we didn't run into any problems because they have an IMMENSE assortment of music!! Their packages are affordable for any size pocketbook. Joe delivered both us and or guests an unforgettable experience! Our dance floor was never empty, all our guest enjoyed the wide array of music Gotta Dance Dj's had to offer. I look forward to our upcoming events being entertained by Gotta Dance Dj's!!

Our ceremony and reception was so elegant and tastefully put together, that we needed a DJ that could live up to those standards too. And hands down, Gotta Dance Dj's definitely did! Not only was all their music selection on point, but the lighting that comes with Package C is awesome! We even had spotlighting for our first dance and caking cutting! Gotta Dance Dj's are true professionals and I've never seen someone so organized!

My husband and I hired Joe D�Alessandro (Gotta Dance DJ�s) to provide dance music and facilitate our wedding reception on November 14, 2009 at Walter Payton�s Roundhouse in Aurora, Illinois. The first thing we discovered was that Gotta Dance DJ�s was one of the most economical DJ services in the area. Although Joe would not allow us to come to another engagement to watch him work, out of respect for the privacy of his clientele, he did provide my husband and I access to Internet clips from which to evaluate his work.

Joe D�Alessandro was a true professional from beginning to end: He arrived early for our first scheduled appointment; he traveled to our home in Sandwich, Illinois, dressed respectfully in business-casual attire. Joe provided us all of the required paperwork (proof of liability insurance) for The Roundhouse, reception agenda templates, and volumes of music selections in an easy-to-read, organized format. He left all of the paperwork with us to allow ample time for review. A few weeks later, Joe returned to our home to pick up the forms and finalize the agenda.

My husband and I are 10 years apart in age. He is a fan of Country and Western Music, and I love Alternative, Dance and 80�s New-Wave. Somehow, Joe made the evening work beautifully, weaving in music selections that complemented both our musical tastes; in fact, after the 'first dance,' our guests were glued to the dance floor, hardly stopping rest. We received dozens of compliments from our guests, both during and after the reception, hearing �that was the best wedding I�ve ever been to� over and over again.

My husband and I could not have been happier with the level of service, support, and professionalism from Joe that evening. We both seriously considered not hiring a DJ in order to save a few dollars; however, it is the reception that people are STILL talking about more than a month later. Gotta Dance DJ�s will provide you with have an evening that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime!

I hired Joe for a combined 40th Birthday party for my husband and 2 of his buddies. The party was an 80?s theme. I was having a difficult time finding a DJ to return my calls and one that was reasonably priced. Joe promptly answered my phone call and was everything I was looking for and more. Joe had a great variety of music from the 80?s (even special requests) that he played all night. He was very accommodating with any requests that we had (even last minute ones) and helped with announcements throughout the night. He even came dressed as the 80's!! Joe helped make the 40th birthday party a memorable one that people still talk about today. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a DJ!!

We hired Gotta Dance DJ's for our wedding and from start to finish everything was phenomenal. Joe came to our house to meet us before the wedding. We needed help picking out songs for our Introduction and Our First Dance and he had no problem giving us a variety of songs to pick from. He pronounced all of the names correctly during the Introduction, our montage was executed perfectly and he kept the dance floor packed. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to go with Gotta Dance, trust me you won't be sorry hiring this company.

We decided to go with Gotta Dance DJ's after reviewing their references and meeting Joe, the DJ. He coordinated everything with our event planner, photographer and videographer. His microphone voice is awesome and he brought a lot of energy to the Introduction. The music flowed perfectly from cocktail until the last song and he even stayed an extra hour because no one wanted to go home! The video montage is definitely a cool "extra" and a great keepsake for the future. Thank you so much Joe for making our wedding so memorable and exciting for us and the fam!

Gotta Dance DJS did everything we asked for. From the begining it was stressed to us that it was our event and the music to be played was fully our choice. We had a lot of requests on what specific songs we wanted to be played and Joe had no problem fuffiling them. The quality of sound was outstanding. Whether you want an old fashioned wedding with the classic songs, or something more contemporary he has, or will find almost every song you can think of. I am very pleased we decided to use this DJ after my sister reccomended him to us, he also did their wedding, which I obviously attended and it was just as fantastic. It would be a mistake not to choose this DJ service!

Joe was a dream come true with such a hectic event. I had so much to do that all the other DJ's that asked me for playlists was just impossible. I told him the type of music that I wanted and he was able to keep everyone dancing all night. I even lost my first dance music CD which was the combination of two songs and he worked it out for me at the last minute. All those dance lessons would have been for nothing if I hadn't had him. He also did an excellent job announcing everyone and getting their names right. I would recommend him to anyone for a worryfree experience at a very fair price.

One of the best decisions I ever made was hiring Gotta Dance DJ's for our wedding reception. Right off the jump I felt extremely comfortable expressing to Joe what we were looking for. I had several ideas, and he was totally enthusiastic about them all. I pretty much thought I had everything in order. However, Joe mentioned several other aspects of the wedding I never even considered. We didn't have a coordinator and he pretty much took over the role of how the evening was going to flow. It was seemless. It's amazing how much more there is to planning and executing a big event, and he has such attention to detail. His expertise proved to be invaluable. Not only was he able to pose some pertinent questions, but also some great recommendations for solutions. Joe is beyond just a DJ. Of course he played our playlist, but how and when each song was played is so important. He really just read the crowd, and the guests looked like they were having a blast. (We sure did!) He also added some songs that were so appropriate, and so fitting, it was like he knew exactly what we wanted to hear. He jumped in when needed to keep things flowing, like garter/bouquet toss, cutting of the cake, etc. He was basically the host. If it wasn't for him, regardless what kind of planning I did, it would have been utter chaos. He's very personable, and so charming. He reallly is the epitome of appropriate, because says and does all the right things. I really don't write reviews all that often, but you future brides/grooms need to know about this guy. Really, once you've hired him, check it off your list, he will do his job and so much more.

Using Gotta Dance DJ's was the best choice we made for our wedding! He met with us at our home when we wanted. We discussed what music we wanted and didn't want, which he respected during the reception. During our first dance we had the slide show of our pictures which was great. The sound and lights were amazing, no flaws. He was there setting up before we even got there for our ceremony. Some of our requests were not so popular, but he had them all, even the newer ones. If there was ever a time there wasn't many people out on the dance floor, he changed that quickly by changing up the song or encouraging people out on the dance floor. The value for the services was top notch. I highly recommend this DJ for a multiple of reasons! Everything that we wanted and more!

The whole expeirince was great from the music and lighting to the photo montage that he provided. The set up was seamless and non intrusive at all he was there and set up before anyone even got to the hall.

Thanks Joe!!

Wow!! on all levels. Joe made our surprise 50th Anniversary Party for our parents more successful and fun than anyone could imagine. Upon my parents entering the room, with the music already in gear Joe walked up and introduced himself to my mom and dad and gifted my mother with a glorious bouquet of roses. I had no prior knowledge of this trick, but it certainly made every sweet lady "swoon" Charisma in action, an exceptional touch. The music kept everyone on the dance floor, it is amazing what some can do with a walker! The montage did the job, not a dry eye in the place. A beautiful production of 50 years of their life. I was happy Joe's expertise as a DJ was as superior to his professionalism and charm. Joe took care of the crowd from the beginning right through to the end of the evening.There are times you are given an amazing gift, our gift that night was Joe. The WOW factor - we had never met Joe until that night. Joe was highly recommended to our family from a friend in Illinois, the party was in Ohio. Thanks Joe we appreciated all you did to make the evening special.

My wife and I had an outdoor wedding reception under a tent. We were concerned how that would work in terms of sound, lighting etc. We wanted everything to be perfect! Joe put us at ease. He had everything worked out and even came to the outdoor venue to offer his opinion on dance floor placement etc. We were also worried since my wife is from texas and her family are diehard country music fans. Me and my friends love 80's, hip hop and top 40. Don't ask me how - but Joe made it work! Till this day family and friends still talk about our wedding! I know my family has booked Gotta Dance for their events too!

Gotta Dance DJs is hands down THE company to hire. Once you hire this company check it off your list (brides & grooms) - you're done. Joe has all the bases covered. You'll have nothing to worry about except to shake your tail feather, have a good time and enjoy your night! The evening flowed perfectly, the dance floor stayed packed, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks Gotta Dance!

Gotta Dance DJs was recommended to us by a family member for our wedding, and we couldn't have been happier. Everything was great from start to finish. The video montage was extremely professional, and the guests couldn't stop talking about it. Joe really kept the guests entertained, and we would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to have a great DJ at a great price.

Joe D'Alessandro with Gotta Dance DJ's was awesome! The moment I met him at our first appointment I just knew he was going to be our DJ! Our personalities clicked and he knew exactly what we wanted for our Wedding Day and did everything we asked him to do. Joe set up outside for our Ceremony and inside for our Reception. He kepted me and the majority of our guests on the dance floor the entire night. He even played an additional song after our 'Last Song'. I received alot of compliments from my guests on how great of a DJ Joe was and even a few asked him for his business card. A few of my friends said they have never seen a Bride have so much fun on the dance floor at her own Wedding. I put down a few must plays and told Joe the artists my husband and I enjoy and all his song selections were perfect for our Wedding! Thank you Joe! I wish you nothing but the best in Colorado!
