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!

The Quintessential Wedding DJ
Joel was an amazing DJ to work with! Extremely responsive, fun to work with and overall excellent human. We shared a taste in music and what i provided to Joel, he ran with it. The dance floor never stopped and when unexpected issues happened, his professionalism kept the party going. Overall, if you are looking for a DJ that takes the couple's interest and suggestions in mind, look no further. Joel is the quintessential wedding DJ!Sent on 09/07/2019

Joel was amazing!
We worked with Joel for our August 2019 ceremony and reception, and he was amazing!! Joel is super friendly, easy to work with, and obviously knows what he’s doing. He did a great job with focusing on the types of songs we liked while weaving in all the typical wedding songs people love to dance to. He had the dance floor jumping all night - HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!Sent on 09/07/2019

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!
