    Joel is the best event DJ in the DMV area!!!

    I wish there was a way to give more than 5 stars for Joel. We contacted Joel to be the DJ for our wedding and he immediately set up a video call so we could discuss our vision. No matter how crazy our ideas were, he was very flexible and excited about our vision for our wedding. Our vision would never have been possible without him. He would always respond quickly with any of our questions and even changed songs on our playlist in the week leading into the wedding. He was extremely professional the day of the wedding and all of the days leading into the wedding. Once the dance party started, it didn’t stop!! Joel played all of the important songs and read the crowd and mixed in other songs that he knew the crowd would enjoy. I had many guests that raved about how great he was and his play style. I can not recommend Joel enough for your next event. Do yourself a favor and book him for your event. It will be a lot less stressful with Joel running the play list for your event and he will definitely get everyone out on the dance floor!!

    I had such a blast at your wedding! It's honestly so great when a couple really goes all in & celebrates each other on their big day! Seeing your ideas come to life definitely made the day for me, and I'm thrilled that you & your guests had such a great time! :-) Thanks so much for your awesome feedback!

    Excellent Wedding DJ

    Joel was very responsive. We scheduled an initial call and he listened to our requests and quickly understood our wedding vibe. He laid out a detailed plan to get our song requests and followed through as the wedding date approached. He was very flexible with our requests and even was able to capture a song that was not widely available for the processional. When it came to the day of, he provided everything we asked without issue. Set up early and stayed till the late night. His late night music was a huge hit for the young and old! I cannot recommend him enough. He was a pleasure to work with.

    If you want your dance floor to be packed and people not sitting at their tables then look no further. He is professional, easy to work with and puts out the music like no other. I would refer him to not only to my clients but to friends and family alike.
