About Joe Farren Live Musician & DJ

Live Music & DJ Service

What sets Joe apart from other Disc Jockey's is that in addition to his DJ and MC work he is a trained musician and performer and can offer you live music.

Complete Wedding Package

Ceremony:
Instrumental piano and/or guitar as well as singing any request by bride and groom. Joe is proficient at classical, jazz, and contemporary music. Just let him know what you're looking for.

Cocktail/Dinner Hour:
In addition to the traditional jazz cocktail repertoire, Joe's impressive list of cover songs span all generations and genre's of music. Hits by the likes of Elton John, Billy Joel, Van Morrison, Michael Buble, James Taylor, Dave Mathews, Ed Sheehan, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, etc.

Reception:
Years of performing has provided Joe a comfort level behind the microphone that only experience of that sort can achieve. His EmCee style is very easy going and precise but never overbearing. Joe currently books over 50 weddings a year and has received numerous awards for both his live music and DJ offerings. Anyone who reads his online reviews knows that Joe always packs the dance floor and keeps guests entertained from start to finish.

Joe is available for any one of your wedding music needs, be it the cocktail hour, ceremony, reception or any combination of these.

"Dear Joe
I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful ceremony music you provided at our wedding. When I started walking down the aisle and heard you singing "Somewhere over the Rainbow" it was really magical! Ok, so that sounds a little cliché, but it really did feel that way. Guests who could not see you actually thought the music was from a CD. They loved your voice. It sounded amazing! I'm just bummed I didn't get to hear you play during cocktail hour.
Thanks again, loved the music!"
Best,
Jamie and Ryan



"Joe,

Thank you so much for playing such incredible music at our wedding! Our day couldn't have been more perfect and your playing contributed so much to it! You have an incredible ability to read a room. You knew exactly what our guests wanted most. Everyone loved your selection of music from beginning to end. We wish you continued success and we hope to see you perform again soon.

Lisa and Andy"



"Dear Joe

We would like to thank you for being a part of our wedding and making it so special. That day was the happiest day of our lives. The piano music you played prior to the ceremony sounded amazing! Also, we cannot thank you enough for singing your song "Til The Day" during our ceremony. The song has so much meaning to us. There isn't one person who didn't come up to us and tell us how wonderful that song was and how great you sounded. It is something we will remember for the rest of our lives. You are such a talented musician and a great MC. You had everybody dancing all night!

Thank you. We are truly grateful to you for making that day so special for us.

With Sincere Thanks,

Matt and Amy"



"Hey Joe...

Thank you so much! You did an awesome job and my family loved you. You rocked the dance floor! Guests said every time they would try to take a break from dancing you put on another awesome song!

Thanks for everything!!

Tiffani"

    Live Band and DJ in One Joe Farren Shaped Package

    Y'all, Come on! If you want live music during your ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner, then a DJ during the reception, you would be INSANE to not book Joe. There honestly are no words to describe how perfect he made our wedding and the best thing was we met him at another wedding. Joe plays the guitar and piano and proceeded to do both during our wedding then really kicked the party off with Justin Timberlake (he knows how much I love him after I filled out his awesome worksheet). If I ever have another party, similar to a wedding, but not as huge, I would still hire Joe to come. You will never regret hiring this talented guy!

    My wedding is next year, but my fiance and I knew as soon as we got engaged that we wanted to reach out to Joe. He was the DJ/Band at my sister's wedding two years prior and was amazing, everyone was talking about how much they loved her DJ. He knew how to play songs that worked for every age, the dance floor was never empty. We were figuring that Joe's prices would have gone up since it had been two years prior, but discovered that he was still the same reasonable price. He has been very quick with his responses. My fiance is from Poland originally and for his Mother/Son dance we wanted to do a song in Polish, we found a song we loved, but it was far too long. We sent Joe the MP3 and he was able to cut it down to a time length we liked with a nice ending. If you are looking for a Live Musician/ DJ for any event I highly recommend Joe.
