About JJ Ward Events & Entertainment

Quickly realizing his love of music and entertainment were able to generate a stable income, JJ devoted hours upon hours to perfecting his craft. With the occasional appearance working with promotions in local radio and sportscasting in the early years, JJ has literally been in every aspect of the local DJ entertainment field. Working with some of the best known names in the Philadephia events and entertainment industry over the last 30 or so years has been both an incredibly fun time, as well as an outstanding learning experience.

    My wife and I met Joe at a wedding last year, and immediately knew he had to be the dj for our wedding. He was fun, energetic, and kept our whole family on their feet all night. There was no pressure, and he did everything exactly as we asked. His input was invaluable when planning everything, and not just with the music. Joe has been there, done that, and seen it all. I look forward to working with JJ Ward Events & Entertainment for several more family functions we have coming up.

    JJ Ward Events & Entertainment is the best DJ service we have experienced! Their top-knotch online site is used from booking to planning and makes the entire process so easy and streamlined. It guides this company to their set standard of event entertainment and I was truly impressed. Joe Ward and our DJ Steve Skalish reached out to us as soon as we began booking and were very helpful with the planning process. Then, we had our wedding. Steve Skalish dj'd our wedding. He was terrific! He was very professional, super well-spoken, he played everything that was planned and flawlessly. Then, when it came time to really dance, no one sat all night. We had the offered lighting and it added to it, it was terrific! We got so many compliments from everyone in the banquet and even passers-by that our DJ Steve Skalish was awesome, everyone had a fantastic time, and passers-by wanted Steve's name. We wanted everyone to have fun and dance all night, and that's exactly what happened! The music was super, Steve picked the best songs for all ranges of ages, and most of our guests danced all night which is really unheard of. Steve also had all music for requests that were asked of him. I will certainly use JJ Ward events and entertainment for all our DJ needs, and I will be requesting Steve Skalish every time!!! We are beyond happy with this company and with Steve.
