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!

    Pick Joe!!

    Joe was the MC/DJ for our wedding and we couldn't have asked for anyone better! Great mix between live music and DJ'ing. He was very flexible and took our music tastes into consideration when curating the playlist for the day. He also learned the song that we wanted to have played at the close of the ceremony. Communication and planning in advance was very easy. He was a big part in helping make the day special!

    Wonderful Experience!

    Joe is wonderful! He provides a one stop shop for beautiful live music that sets such a perfect tone and also rocks it as a DJ & MC. He was exactly what we were looking for at our Brewery wedding and we are so pleased to have worked with him. He is punctual, has a great attitude, is organized, pricing is very reasonable, and he is a joy to work with. We are so thankful he was able to play such a key role in our wedding day. The planning process was easy and he really listened to the vibe we were looking for and went above and beyond to make that happen.
