COMPLETE WEDDING PACKAGE.

Below is a look at what the complete wedding package includes when you book with Joe.

Ceremony:

Joe is proficient in classical, jazz and contemporary music but will perform any piano and/or guitar song requested by the Bride and Groom. Instrumental or Singing – or a little bit of both – you choose!

Cocktail/Dinner Hour:

In addition to the traditional jazz cocktail repertoire, Joe’s impressive list of cover songs spans all generations and genres of music. He will perform hits by the likes of Elton John, Billy Joel, Van Morrison, Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz, Frank Sinatra, Zac Brown and much, much more!

Reception:

Years of performing has provided Joe a comfort level behind the mic that only experience of that nature can achieve. His MC style is very easy going but never overbearing and the focus is always on the Bride and Groom. The music usually starts out traditional and builds as the night progresses. Joe knows how to read your crowd’s energy and plays songs that will keep your guests entertained, and the dance floor packed, all night long!

Joe is amazing

Joe was so easy to work with! We had a destination wedding and he was always available by email and phone anytime we had questions. Our day would not have been possible without him. We ended up running ahead of schedule and he was so flexible and went with the flow. He is very professional and personable when it comes to the big day. I could not recommend Joe enough!

Ah-Mah-Zing!!

Picking the DJ was probably one of the most nerve-wracking vendor choices we had to make, however, all of those anxieties vanished with the first phone call with Joe! He was a breeze to work with, has fair pricing, and I received so many compliments from our wedding guests! He added everything we wanted and kept out the songs we didn't want. Our dance floor stayed packed all night! We can't recommend Joe more!
