Big J came recommended to us and he did not disappoint! He is FANTASTIC at reading the crowd and playing the right music to get everyone on their feet. Our entire wedding was dancing for hours and literally danced their shoes off. He was simply the BEST and made our night absolutely perfection. Would highly recommend!

Can't have a party without Joel!!
Joel was hands down such a down to earth guy I'm so glad my wedding coordinator gave me his name! He is organized, his equipment is top notch and with a stylish set-up elegant for a wedding. He was taking guest requests and also bringing in his own flavor to keep the party going. Everything I asked for music-wise is exactly what he was doing. Very in-sync with what my husband and I truly wanted. Thank you so much!

Best Dance Party
DJ Joel is amazing. He was very responsive, professional and easy going. We met with him once and corresponded the rest of the time via email since I was planning from NY. We hired his services for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception at Los Jardines del Castillo. He did an amazing job mixing the english and spanish music and had everyone dancing from the moment he started until the end. It was the best dance party ever. I would highly recommend him.
