Joy was absolutely perfect for our wedding. She provided piano and vocals for our cocktail hour and dinner. Everyone was thrilled to find out that we had a live musician - especially because she was so good that people didn't realize it was live at first. I highly recommend Joy to anyone planning an event in need of a live musician - she was friendly, prompt and very professional. I couldn't be happier!Sent on 10/29/2014

My husband and I cannot speak highly enough about Joy and the quality of service she provided on our wedding day. She is a proven talent both as a pianist and vocalist, and this provided a beautiful experience for both wedding party and guests. We had wanted a very specific piece of piano music played for when I walked down the aisle that Joy had not previously played as a piano solo and did not have the sheet music for. Joy was confident she would be able to do it, and her delivery was spot on with what we had wanted! This made our ceremony so unique and special to us.Sent on 08/31/2014
I highly recommend the Joy of Music to anyone for their special event. Joy's talent, professionalism and years of experience will provide you with a high quality service that you and all your guests will enjoy.

Joy was by far one of the easiest vendors that we worked with for our wedding! Not only was she fun, friendly, and a great value...she helped us PLAN our ceremony. Her experience showed in every step of the process. She invited us to her home for a planning meeting and played so many beautiful songs for us, which helped so much! Thank you again so much Joy, we were so happy to have you be part of our special day! Our family & guests continue to compliment you & loved hearing you play! I have & will continue to send your information to every future bride I know! I also know that Joy's talent would work with any other type of event, not just weddings!!Sent on 09/11/2014

From the moment we met Joy, we knew she was going to be perfect for our wedding ceremony. She has a beautiful, distinctive, earthy voice that matched with our venue-outside at the MN Landscape Arboretum. We chose 2 songs and asked for a suggestion for the 3rd. She played us "When I Say I Do" and it brought my fiancé to tears. It was even more moving in the actual setting of the garden. Many of our guests at the reception commented on her performances; they used terms like fabulous, magnificent and emotional.Sent on 09/09/2013
Joy is a pro; I would highly recommend her for any venue.
Christina · Married on 09/07/2013
Joy has a beautiful voice and was a pleasure to work with! She was willing to work with us on the cost so we could still have live music for our wedding ceremony. She has all of her own equipment (amp, Mic, piano) that she is able to bring, which saved us the trouble of finding & renting such items. She also assisted us in choosing unique songs that helped add another personal touch to our special day!Sent on 01/18/2014

We were really pleased with Joy and very happy with choosing her as pianist for our wedding.Sent on 08/31/2013
She was very easy to work with, great demeanor, friendly, very flexible and accommodating - she learnt a couple of new songs both to play and to sing for our event and she helped us out with some equipment when we were caught short.
Having Joy as pianist added a real touch of elegance, I wouldn't hesitate to use her again or to recommend her to others.
Thanks Joy - you were brilliant.
Trevor and Jocelyn

Joy was, well, a joy to work with from the beginning. As a pianist myself, it was so refreshing to have an event musician with as strong of a background in classical piano as she does. But don't worry, she also plays lots of popular and non-classical music as well! She was extremely responsive and even worked us in on a day where she was booked for another wedding! (We had a morning/early afternoon event). On the day of she was fantastic at working around what we were doing at the time, which I as a bride really appreciated. Things will inevitably not go exactly on schedule, which Joy understood and expertly rolled with it.Sent on 05/11/2013
I can't recommend her enough for your music needs, whatever they are, on your big day.
Joy of Music 's reply:Thanks so much for your wonderful review, Kate! Your wedding was so fantastic and fun and I am so happy that I got to make two new friends in the process. I am honored that you chose me to play for your wedding.

We hired Joy as the pianist and vocalist for our wedding and things couldn't have gone more smoothly with the whole thing. Joy made us feel at ease from the start, which was huge during the planning stages. She was very open to the type of music we were looking for and playing exactly what we were hoping for. She even learned a new song to sing when I walked down the isle. I chose "A Thousand Years" and she sang it beautifully. We got so many compliments on having a piano player and I am very grateful for how professional and creative Joy was on the day of the wedding. She played during the ceremony and the entire reception and I couldn't be happier with her performance.Sent on 02/20/2013

We LOVE Joy!! She plays piano so beautifully, and her voice is just unbelievable... she added such a perfect dimension to our wedding ceremony that we are so thankful for and could never thank her enough for being there for us on our wedding day! She even learned songs for us that we had requested, and played them perfectly. We loved her, our guests loved her... Highly recommend having Joy play at your wedding!Sent on 10/15/2012

Our daughter's wedding day will be one to remember. We were very lucky to find Joy and have her perform at the wedding ceremony. She is very talented, has a beautiful voice, and was great to work with in planning the music for the big day. I highly recommend Joy for your event.Sent on 10/12/2012
Jessica · Married on 08/05/2011
Joy did a wonderful job at our wedding! Unfortunately, as a bride (or groom), when you are in the moment of your wedding (and excitement) you really zone out the music. I did, however, have many people comment on how beautiful the music was at our ceremony! Joy also sings and has a beautiful voice, but we only had her play piano for our wedding. We are very happy with her service.Sent on 08/16/2011
Joy of Music 's reply:Thank you, Jessica! It was so fun getting to know you better and I'm so glad you were happy with my services. I appreciate the kind words, your wedding was beautiful!

We had a small outdoor wedding and had Joy play piano for our ceremony and reception. We couldn't be happier or have chosen a better person for the job!! The music was beautiful and she was incredibly easy to work with throughout the whole planning process. If you are looking for a talented and professional musician for your wedding, call Joy first, our wedding wouldnt have been perfect without her!
Joy of Music 's reply:Goodness, thank you so much for your kind words! It means so much to me that you were happy with the music. It was so nice getting to know you a little better and I wish you guys incredible happiness in your future together!
