My husband and I couldn't be more satisfied with Joe Kalamaras! He was recommended from my best friend who hired him for her wedding. I believe Joe thought I was a bit nuts as the first time we talked to him, many months before our wedding, it took me 2 minutes to know he was the DJ we wanted. I asked him after our first conversation if he could send over an invoice so we can get things started. He told us that we should be sure and it was alright if we took some time to explore other options. I explicitly remember saying, "no, we want you, send the papers". From then on, our experience got better and better. The payment process was seamless and stress free. If I emailed him, he would get back to me within 10 minutes with a quick, easy response. My husband and I were in our best friend's wedding where we got to see how DJ Joe performed. My friend wanted; ceremony wedding, ballroom reception, every single wedding party couple had their own song to come into for the grand entrance etc. Joe met every need of hers and exceeded expectations! It was our wedding month. I sent Joe a song list schedule and at the end were the "do not play" songs. I am very Type A and let's just say this list was not easy. I even asked him to snip out part of the song that I walked down to and he did it without question. He cut songs where I asked him to cut them and he made rock, modern country, 70's, 80's and 90's songs all work together without awkward transitions. My family and friends had SO much fun and loved everything about our DJ. We had a backyard wedding and Joe managed to make all lighting and sound work perfectly not knowing what this backyard looked like before the day of. One thing that was appreciated by us as well as our guests was that Joe went table to table to excuse them for our buffet style dinner. Most DJ's would announce tables, but Joe went to a personal level and connected with the guests. What else could you ask for in a DJ?

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.

Joe from SJ's DJs is AMAZING!! Joe provided our:
- Ceremony music & audio (mics for officiant, groom, & readers - though we had no idea that the readers would even need mics til our officiant mentioned it last-minute. But thankfully Joe came prepared with an extra handheld!)
- Reception music & entertainment
- Photo booth
- Uplighting for the reception hall

We are SO happy that we had Joe for all these services, since he made the party SO MUCH FUN (even for our fairly tame family & guests), totally smooth and seamless, and incredibly personalized! Everyone kept remarking what an incredible DJ we had, including our vendors and officiant, who have done literally hundreds of weddings and said that Joe really made it something special. He played just the right style of upbeat, danceable music and has tons of fun, interactive games that you can choose from, which all our guests really enjoyed. He also has a very calm, soothing, professional demeanor and is truly a master at what he does. His prices were also very reasonable, and even if they were much higher, he would absolutely be worth the investment! He helped our whole day run so smoothly and deserves full credit for making our party such a blast. It doesn't get any better than Joe of SJ's DJs!!!

It's hard to put into words how grateful we are to have had Joe as our DJ + MC. I'll start by saying, I am a wedding photographer. I've photographed nearly 500 weddings, so it's safe to say, I've seen the good, the bad, and everything in between when it comes to music and MC services for a wedding. I've spent the past 8 or so years working with Joe, and when it came time to hire a DJ for our wedding, it was no question. We had to have the best. Our wedding took place in Jacksonville, Florida. We flew Joe out to Florida, because we simply had to have the best!

Before we secured a definitive date for our wedding, we contacted Joe to make sure he was available. We contacted him over a year in advance, as we know he books very quickly.

If you're reading this, you might be wondering why I so amendment that Joe is the best DJ + MC a couple can have? First, Joe is extraordinarily professional, he will respond to your emails, calls, concerns, questions...and he'll do it faster than any of your other vendors.

Next, Joe is one of the kindest, most generous person you'll meet and this kindness pours out into his business. You won't find another vendor who works harder to make your wedding perfection like Joe does. Joe takes a pride in EVERY SINGLE WEDDING he does. He's flawless.

Unlike most DJ's, Joe does not call the couple "bride + groom" he know the couples name. A small detail, but worth mentioning.

He has a way of engaging your guests into the events of the day. He will incorporate your guests in a way that seem effortless and organic. He will surprise your guests, have them laughing and celebrating all night. Lastly, he has an ability to take your favorite's song list, read your crowd, and know exactly what to play song after song, to keep them enjoying every moment of your dance party. Like all the weddings I've worked with Joe, our wedding had a packed floor and if you hire Joe, so will you. He books fast, so contact him as soon as you have a date!

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! ☺
