My wife and I absolutely loved working with Joan. She was incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgable. She worked with us on exactly the vibe we wanted for the reception and offered additional services for us to make sure we accomplished it. She was incredibly responsive and flexible throughout the wedding process, and she went above and beyond to provide the best service possible. Joan has the knowledge and experience to make anyone's special event/day work to what you want, I will absolutely be recommending her to anyone looking for a DJ.

Our DJ Todd Sun was easy to work with, flexible, and did a great job setting up microphones for our outdoor wedding ceremony. The party continued with good music inside the reception hall, except the music was a little loud and difficult to talk over. The only constructive criticism I have is that I wish he was louder with the announcements of what was being done (eg. bride's dance with father, cake cutting, etc.) as people caught on to what was happening after it was almost over. Otherwise, he was excellent to work with.

While planning the music for our wedding Joan made it apparent how professional she is, she showed up to our meetins in time and was fully prepared. She showed a sense of excitement or enthusiasm about working with us and on our wedding and that made us excited and very comfortable working with her.

Joan made it extremely easy to work with her and get in contact with her. She is very flexible even allowing us to make a few decisions right before the reception starte. This really helped us out and took a lot of stress off of us.

She made arranging the music for the wedding really easy, we told her a few songs we wanted played, she asked about a few bands we like and went from there. I thoroughly enjoyed all the music she picked to play during the wedding, she showed total understanding on what to play depending on our taste in music.

She made it really easy for us to request music, but when it came to other people requesting music she made sure it was alright with us. I liked this, she knew that we have a specific taste in our music and made sure not to go out of bounds.

Our wedding was a morning wedding which means the reception was mid day, and mid day receptions are notorious for being a little slow and in-active. Joan did a great job working with the crowd, getting people up and dancing and really made it an enjoyable time. I would highly recommend Joan, she is very professional, fun, energetic and did an all around awesome job making our reception very enjoyable.

Joan was wonderful to work with! She had the guests dancing from the moment dinner ended until the last song of the night. We had such a great time, greatly due to the excellent music that was played. Music is very important to us, and Joan was patient enough to let us come up with our own playlists for different parts of the evening...most of which were played throughout the night. Our guests have since told us how awesome the music was at our wedding. I can't tell you how much we appreciate Joan's talent and help throughout the wedding planning process. She not only took the care and thought to calm my nerves, but she also made me feel comforted and assured that the evening would run smoothly. Thank you, Joan, for making mine and Ryan's night such a blast! We hope to work with you again in the future!

Joan was our wedding DJ- and was wonderful. After our wedding, we had people come up to us and say, 'who was that DJ? She was awesome!' As we look back on our wedding video, we appreciate Joan's energy enthusiasm, and professionalism. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ at our wedding. We highly recommend her!

Joan provided us with the fun, energetic vibe that we wanted at our wedding. She skillfully chose songs that would keep guests on the dance floor. We were thrilled that after hours of music and dancing, our guests still wanted more.

Joan also made it a point to check in with us throughout the night. As a result, everything felt easy and ran smooth. I appreciated her taking the time to do this.

From our initial meeting to our final song, it was a pleasure to work with Joan.

Joan is a radio host on Connecticut's radio station lite 100.5, so she really know how to talk with a calm and soothing voice. She is certainly not one of those loud obnoxious get in your face DJs. Although she works for a lite radio station she certainly know her R&B, hip hop and rap; as that was the music that both my husband and I listen to. Joan did not fail us and played great music all night long.

Joan Dylan is a not only a talented Disc Jockey, she has proved to be compassionately devoted to her clients while truly demonstrating patients , respect and kindness. We had planned on interviewing three different D. J’s, after meeting with Joan, we knew immediately that we did not need to look any further. Joan will go to any length to get the job done. I can not count the times that she had gone above and beyond any expectation that we had, for example, (and unbeknownst to us) our Justice of the Peace did not have sound equipment. Joan stepped in and offered him use of her equipment!
I highly recommend Joan to anyone that is looking for a D. J. with an edge and unsurpassable passion for her given talent.

Joan was the DJ for my friends Jessica and Jon's wedding. She was very professional, played great music and had the dance floor full all night. No Balloon animals, hats, props, or other nonsense... just a very nice wedding reception!! She had every request and did an awesome job with introductions. Her sound system was clean and bright. I don't know what her services cost, but it was worth every dime!
