Joe was great! He's super easy to work with, and pretty flexible. In addition to being the DJ, he also provided up lighting and the photobooth at the wedding. Our venue was beautiful, and the photobooth ran smoothly since there was an attendant there the whole time. I highly recommend sj's disc jockey.

My new husband and I had a great time working with Joe!

We had one request which was once we kissed and were pronounced husband and wife that he would play a song but at the specific time (like a min and 30 seconds in or something like that) and my new husband and I would run down the isle. He had that song perfectly que'd up! Out of everything i heard i knew that was dead on what we wanted and both my husband and i both commented on how he got it perfect!

Throughout the day i dont remember hearing to much, i guess with all the hussle and bussle of being the bride you dont get to take in all the little things but all i know is my husband and i and all my guests danced our hearts out! We have no complaints! Joe was easy to work and had a lot of creative ideas.

Also that photobooth was a HIT!! Pretty sure everyone should have one of those at their wedding!! Joe even got in and took some pics with me! Great guy!

Thanks again Joe!!!

We had the pleasure of having Joe DJ our wedding last Friday. He was AMAZING!! He did such a great job and was on top of everything. Everyone had such a great time! He gave me the idea of adding something on our RSVP cards for our guests to make song requests. Everyone LOVED it and thought it was such a cute idea. I got so many compliments on it. We also used his monogram lighting services which looked wonderful! I would totally recommend SJs to anyone!

Joe was so easy to work with! He was happy to meet with us anytime, anyplace to go over details of the wedding. He took note of all of our "must play" and "do not play" songs and happily responded to our endless emails of changes and new ideas. He was also full of helpful suggestions when we needed them - not only of song choices, but of creative ideas for the wedding reception. The wedding day went so smoothly from beginning to end. The photos show what a great time everyone had on the dance floor. All we kept telling Joe was that we wanted a packed dance floor all night and I think he achieved that! We also loved having the photo booth, and so did our guests. I like that they put the photos into an album for us at the end of the night. And the guests could also make a videos, which were so fun to watch! I just wish we had more of those! All in all, we had a great time and we didn't want the night to end!

I wish I could give more stars, I love Joe! I am truly sad for all brides who do not have the opportunity to work with him, he is such a fun person and really knows how to get the party started and keep the party going! In all honesty, I chose my wedding date based on the availability of 3 of my vendors, Joe being one of them, he is that good! I literally did not leave my dance floor for even 5 seconds at my wedding and I wasn't the only one, EVERYONE loved him! He knows how to read a crowd and has an amazing gift for what he does, he made our wedding day so perfect! It was EVERYTHING we wanted and we are so very thankful! Oh, and you should have seen the uplighting!!! He is truly an artist, it was so beautiful and the pictures are amazing! I had an all-star cast of vendors and literally, I could not even imagine my wedding without Joe! He took care of so many little details for me, he had everything organized and showed up early the day of (and when he got there I could tell he was actually excited, this is not just a job to him, he really cares about his brides)! He knows how to read a crowd and I literally did not have to worry about a thing the entire day, he had it all covered! He also gave us several fun ideas for things we could add to our wedding day and what we used really added to our day! We also booked Joe's photo booth which was SO much fun!! We still love looking though the pictures and video, I would definitely recommend the photo booth!! If he has your date open, book him immediately! You cannot find a better value and you cannot find someone who is easier to work with, trust me! Joe will make the planning process easier and your wedding day spectacular, there is no doubt in my mind! Thank you so much Joe for giving us the party we dreamed of, you are the best!!!

Joe is the absolute best DJ/MC you will ever have the pleasure of working with! Not only does he have an INCREDIBLE voice, he has the personality and pure love for what he does, to make your special day even better! When we first met with Joe, we booked him immediately… A year and a half in advance… (Yes, he is that good)!! He came with an extremely high recommendation to us, and it was easy to figure out why.

Joe was extremely warm, welcoming and excited to meet with us! When we told him about our story and what we had planned for our day, he started giving us ideas for how we could make it authentic to us. He is ingenious!! Every element that made our wedding day special (to us), came from meeting with Joe. We would come to him with an idea and we would make it 10X better! We sat with him to decide what kind of music we wanted to play and other fine details. We asked that he just keep everyone on the dance floor, and that he did!!

Matt and I could not be happier to have worked with Joe! We truly enjoyed every moment of the planning process, as he was extremely attentive to emails and all other communication. And on the wedding day, he was just awesome and knew how to run with the day beautifully. He is a true professional and you will be extremely proud to have him MC/DJ your big day! We sure were! ☺

Joe was the DJ for our wedding at the Monte Verde Inn in May 2014. He did a spectacular job and we wholeheartedly recommend him! Joe made sure in advance that he knew exactly what we wanted—genres to play or avoid, and the tone we wanted to set for each part of the occasion (cocktail hour, dinner, dancing). He encouraged us to provide extremely detailed notes and long lists of "don't play" and "definitely play" songs and artists. He asked us for specific choices for every special ritual event like first dances, cake-cutting, bouquet toss, and first and last songs of the evening. I worried out loud to him at one point that our lists were too long and specific and we were being overbearing, and he assured me, "No, the more detailed, the better!" In the end, for the open dancing portion of our reception, Joe had an eclectic and fun playlist perfectly tailored to the crowd and sequenced just right: not once did he let the energy drop and people wander away from the dance floor. It was one of the few receptions either my wife or I have attended where nobody seemed ready for it to be over when it ended.
Joe also excels as an emcee, dropping in just the right amount of banter here and there without ever trying too hard or making himself the center of attention. He is charismatic and very entertaining. Joe encouraged us to provide him (secretly) with humorous and mildly embarrassing bios of the bridesmaids and groomsmen, which he read out loud as he introduced them, to their surprise and everyone's laughter. Joe's photo booth was also a fun and recommended addition to the package; we got an album afterwards full of the goofy pictures our guests took in it.
Logistics were completely professional and seamless. He was punctual, got everything set up without a hitch, and had a whole host of backup plans for every contingency (rain, technical malfunctions, etc.), luckily none of which ended up being necessary. We would recommend Joe to anyone in a heartbeat!

My husband and I had Jeremy with SJ's as our DJ for our wedding at the Monte Verde Inn (amazing venue btw). Jeremy was great to work with and absolutely delivered what we were looking for in a dj. The music was awesome and nothing was "tacky" as I've seen with other DJ's. I was able to dance the night away which I've always wanted for my wedding. Thanks Jeremy for helping us have the wedding of our dreams! Highly recommended :)
