Best wedding dj ever.
DO NOT underestimate how crucial a good DJ is for your wedding! I honestly cannot say enough good things about Joel, who DJ'd our wedding this past Saturday (June 8, 2019).Sent on 06/11/2019
Guests from all generations were absolutely raving about how great of a job he did - it's basically impossible to please everyone, but he did it. During the planning process, Joel made plenty of time to discuss our song list, and made sure to check in with us during the reception to make sure all was going well. And, most importantly, he went above and beyond in the face of unforeseen circumstances to make sure that we had a wonderful dance party. He's calm, cool, and collected, but also fun and engaging. PLUS he has a super cool DJ booth setup that is so much fun! We especially loved that he made a special t-shirt to wear during the event (and gave us our own to take home!). Please do not hesitate to book him for your next party. We made the best choice, and we couldn't be happier. THANK YOU JOEL!

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!!Sent on 04/22/2019

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.Sent on 05/17/2019

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.
We love working with DJ Batchelor! He is professional, punctual and every time he meets and exceeds our clients' needs. He works closely with the client and goes above and beyond to fulfill their vision. Our venue has two levels and he has no problem of accommodating two different set ups with equipment on both floors. He is easy to work with and provides great service. He makes every event super fun and unforgettable!
