Joel Lalonde has been a professional DJ in Ottawa for over 14 years. He started his career working for some of the largest DJ companies in Ottawa, after which he branched out on his own to provide his clients with personalized services. If you are getting married in the Ottawa-Gatineau area (and beyond), he is the DJ to contact for incredible entertainment and pure professionalism on your wedding day.

As the bride and groom, you deserve to have direct access and an opportunity to meet with your DJ before your wedding day. This is something that companies generally do not offer. Upon booking your wedding date, you will be sent an in-depth wedding planner that lists every imaginable detail about your special day. A one-hour consultation will also be booked three weeks before your wedding day to go over all of the details and to meet your DJ in person.

The standard wedding package includes (don't be fooled by others who charge for additional services):
A state-of-the-art professional sound system, able to entertain up to 300 guests A professional light show A wireless microphone Eight hours of continuous (and fantastic) music Travel and parking within the Ottawa-Gatineau area Early arrival before your first guest arrives Setup and tear down of equipment Coordination and delivery of the grand entrance, bouquet and garter toss, etc. A bilingual service, if required A full timeline of your wedding day A DJ who is dressed in a tuxedo, unless told otherwise A DJ with a university degree in engineering who is also certified in project management


Don't chance spinning the random wheel of DJ's, your wedding day is too important. Hire a trusted, reputable and long-standing DJ who will give you the wedding you have dreamed of! Read less

My wife and I found out about Joel through friends who had had him DJ their wedding. He came very highly recommended. We were extremely happy with the service Joel provided. He was extremely professional and organized. My wife and I were a bit worried about the music for the wedding as we did not have a lot of ideas going into our first meeting with Joel. His questionnaire makes it super easy to plan the music for your wedding. He gave us a ton of great suggestions based on his extensive experience. We had to make a couple of last minute changes to our music. Joel was very accommodating in spite of the fact that these changes created additional work for him. On the day of, he was exactly as advertised: punctual, professional, well dressed, and very helpful. The music was handled perfectly, and we got a number of compliments on the song choices. We would absolutely hire Joel again, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, experienced, exceptional DJ.

We had a small wedding and I wondered if a DJ was necessary! I am so glad I found Joel! If it wasn't for him I do not think our reception would have been as fun! He was amazing to deal with and played amazing songs! The dinner music sounded like my playlist so he really knew what we liked and were looking for. I highly recommend him to help make your night a success!

Joel was amazing. He had the dance floor hopping all night, as we requested. He acted as MC as well and kept everything rolling smoothly. I can't recommend Joel enough. His approach is thorough and he works his services around the type of wedding/reception you want.

Thanks Joel!

I got married on May 30th 2015 at Strathmere Lodge and we used Joel's DJ services for our wedding ceremony and reception. From day one, Joel was very quick to respond to our questions and very professional. Since it was our first time using DJ services, he guided us through the whole process and helped us plan our special day. His prices are very reasonable and includes all the needed equipment. On the day of our wedding, he was well dressed and very respectful to all of our guests. He played our requests and played the music we had chosen. We had a great time, our guests danced all night and really enjoyed themselves. Thank you Joel, we will definately recommend your business in the future.

Joel was fantastic, better than we anticipated (and he came to us as a referral from a friend and previous client of his). The first thing that impressed us about Joel was his lengthy questionnaire that covered every detail of the wedding day. When we met with Joel before the wedding, he walked us through our completed questionnaire and ensured we were on the same page. He even checked on the pronunciation of our wedding party's names (English vs French) - and he nailed each one on our big day.

We had an on-the-fly change with regard to the introduction of our wedding party as everyone had already taken their seats for the dinner service. Joel was quick on his feet and changed the style of the introductions with no sweat (and no stress to us).

We had tons of compliments on the DJ service as he kept everyone dancing and played the right mix of songs for our guests' age range. Joel accommodated many song requests, even Nirvana -- which was a first for him!

Can't say enough positive things about the DJ service we received from Joel. He looked and acted extremely professional and always had a smile on his face.

Merci Joel!!

Joel was an amazing DJ. He was easy-going and very open and flexible about musical genres and style. He's quick on his feet, and when the cocktail hour playlist I provided him with didn't communicate with his equipment, he was already prepared with a great backup playlist, without skipping a beat. He had the dance floor going ALL night, everyone had a blast, and he really knew how to read the crowd. All the guests were commenting on how great he was. 5 stars, no doubt!
