We hired Joel as our DJ as soon as he said, "Just so you know, I don't do cheesy." Even though I was planning a big wedding myself, I typically find weddings kind of corny and unoriginal. I knew that I wanted our wedding to be remembered as a PARTY THAT DIDN'T STOP and that is exactly what we got. Joel is fun, but extremely professional and was always there for us whenever we needed him. Our wedding was in Atlanta, but we live in Washington, DC so we relied on technology as our main source of communication. Joel would email or call us back ASAP and never left us hanging. He is also well known in Atlanta so he was fabulous at pointing us in the right direction for other vendors. We also used his company for a photo booth for the reception and videography (WE LOVE BRYAN AND NICOLE!!!!) and every part was on point. Joel was the best decision because he made our wedding reception a night our friends and family will never forget!!
Joel was great to work with from beginning to end. He was always very quick in his responses, professional, and made me feel at ease (which is not easy for an extremely type A bride like me!). He created custom songs that I requested for my processional, and really got what type of music/event we wanted. It truly was a killer party. All of our guests kept talking about what an awesome DJ he was- not your usual played out wedding music. Our photographers even commented that it was the most fun wedding they've shot :) Thanks again, Joel!!
Last July, I did my research, as any good bride would do. :) I saw on the knot that it listed Lethal Rhythms as #1 for DJ entertainment. Why wouldn't I want that for my most memorable day of my life?! I quickly contacted their marketing manager, and I have also communicated with Joel. He has been absolutely amazing throughout the entire process making sure that I was always in contact with our DJ. Enter Chris Watson. We got the recommendation for Chris based on who my husband and I are as a couple. Chris Watson of Lethal Rhythms Entertainment provided an upbeat, vibrant, and memorable experience for our entire wedding reception! I am 100% pleased with the quality of service that he provided my husband and me. It all started with Chris meeting with us in person last July to gain a sense of who we were as a couple, and he met with me a month before the wedding to finalize and personalize details. Of course, we also corresponded via phone, email, and through his music database. I can honestly say that I am touched by how Chris went above and beyond to make sure he knew exactly the feel we wanted to create at our reception! During the reception, Chris was quickly and skilfully attain the "pulse" of the crowd, and the rest, well, is history!
Joel was amazing! He kept everyone on the dance floor all night. He knew what the crowd wanted and kept everyone moving, including my husbands grandfather who is 80! He made the night so memorable!! Such a great night!!
You always hear from other people that your wedding day will go by SO fast. We never knew how fast they meant until it happened to us. We remembered bits and pieces but wished we could have pressed rewind and took a few moments to soak it all in. Well, fortunately we were able to do just that! With having Lethal Rythms do our videography we were able to curl up on the couch together and watch the best day of our lives all over again. We got those moments to soak it in (and if we wanted to soak it up again, we could) :) . We shed some happy tears and were reminded of the commitment we made that day. A commitment that you will find you NEED to be reminded of,often! It was almost like a mini vow renewal! We will definitely be making watching our wedding video a anniversary tradition. Seriously, the best wedding gift to give to yourselves! Thanks to everyone at Lethal Rhythms for giving us such an awesome gift and for helping making our day SO special!
DJ Fernando of Lethal Rhythms Entertainment was one of the absolute best decisions that we made for our wedding! He provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and he could not have been any easier or more fun to work with. He completely understood the mood we were trying to set with each part of our wedding and totally nailed it - all of it. Our reception was a blast! DJ Fernando's mixing skills were such a hit - we didn't ever want the party to end! Thank you so, SO much for making our wedding day flawless!
couldn't ask for better! Joel is amazing at what he does - everyone had a blast at our reception thanks to him!
There's so much to say about how much I enjoyed working with Joel at Lethal Rhythms for my wedding day that I don't know where to start. I guess I should start by saying that I'm the kind of bride that when people asked me about my wedding day, I would start by describing the music playlist. People would ask about the dress and I wouldn't be able to describe if it was A-line or Ballgown. I say that to set the context that music was a VERY important wedding planning decision for me.
Joel and his team were very responsive when I had questions. They made the planning process and music decisions very easy by providing suggestions. They had options and recommendations that included everything from traditional to unique. Joel managed my ceremony music in addition to my reception music, and he even came to a processional practice to make sure the music would work for what we had planned. But most importantly, he knew how to make the right selections at the right time to get the party going and keep it going. And best yet, all of these services came within my conservative budget. I would highly recommend Lethal Rhythms again, and I hope I can hire Joel for a future party where I can dance the night away! Thanks again Joel!
At that age where all my friends are getting married, Joel and the staff at Lethal Rhythms are by far the best group of DJ's that I have seen at any wedding. Joel has a way of avoiding the awkward and annoying issues that most DJ's don't seem to understand (wedding party is introduced correctly and names are not mixed up, bride and groom are not pulled away from conversations with grandparents or distant family but are allowed to complete conversations before cake cutting or other events, coordinates well with all other vendors to make sure all of the evening's events go off without a hitch).
The wedding flow is constantly maintained, Joel is able to keep the dance floor full and guest having a great time by selecting music that fits the moment, opposed to trying to stick to a preset playlist that doesn't accommodate for the mood throughout the celebration. Joel also does a wonderful job of working with the bride and groom before the wedding to get an understanding on the types of music that the bride and groom want and do not want played.
Overall my fiancee and I were extremely impressed with the passion and knowledge Joel and his staff have towards making a wedding run smoothly and making it a event that you will never forget, for these reasons we have hired Joel to DJ our wedding and we would tell anyone else they should do the same.
We used Lethal Rhythms for our DJ and lighting and we were very happy with their services. I was able to speak with the DJ over the phone prior to the wedding and he was very friendly and asked lots of questions about what I wanted for the wedding. He did a great job with the music and also with the announcments.
My fiancé & I are both big into music. We go to concerts & shows all the time, & my fiancé even DJ's at clubs & events around Atlanta, so the music for our wedding is extremely important to us.
We want our guests to really enjoy themselves at our reception & we feel that a DJ who knows how to get the crowd dancing is the way to do just that, so when we got engaged, the only person we could imagine having DJ our wedding was Joel Rabe at Lethal Rhythms!
I met Joel at a corporate event right after I graduated college. He left such a lasting impression that now, 4 1/2 years later, he is who we have asked to DJ our wedding!
We had our first meeting with Joel last week & it went really, really well! We had such a fun time discussing the details with him! Joel really took the time to get to know us as a couple & spent time talking to us about exactly how we envision our wedding day. He even provided us with some really great ideas that we had not thought about ourselves.
My fiancé & I both left the meeting feeling very excited & very confident that Joel will be able to help make our day the very best that it can be. I feel like I don't need to waste any time stressing over the DJ or music for the wedding, because I can count on Joel to do his thing.
WOW, such a relief to feel so good about our choice! I can now focus on other things like finding that perfect dress! I strongly recommend Joel & Lethal Rhythms!! Have fun planning brides!
My fiance and I chose to book our wedding reception entertainment through Lethal Rhythms after meeting with several other competitors and they just didn't seem to be as dedicated and passionate to providing the best quality of entertainment and energy for the price they were quoting us which was very close to what Joel and his team at Lethal Rhythms charges for their services. We wanted a DJ who just doesn't stand there and hit play all night long, truthfully an Ipod can do that. After meeting with Joel I could tell that being a DJ was his passion and he really cares about his clients event. As being a DJ myself for the past 18 years,I have very high standards which I felt would not be met with the other DJ's we interviewed. Music, energy, and overall flow is the backbone to an amazing wedding reception, and with Lethal Rhythms I have complete confidence that our wedding reception will be nothing short of spectacular and memorable for us and our guests. When I asked other DJ's about certain equipment requests they said they would get back with me after they found out the cost of renting the requested equipment, everything I asked of Joel and Lethal Rhythms they already have and are familiar with its operations. Joel and Lethal Rhythms have already preformed at our wedding venue before so they have a working relationship with venue staff and the layout of the facility, the others I talked to had never heard nor let alone been to our venue. When I learned that the competition was unfamiliar with our venue I inquired if the would go to the venue to meet with the staff and get a feel for the location prior to the day of our wedding, most replied that was not needed and they would just arrive a little earlier than needed on the day of the event. There are more reasons why I hired Lethal Rhythms but I don't want this to feel like I'm just bashing Joel's competition, fact is I have complete faith that our wedding reception will be a hit by hiring Joel and Lethal Rhythms!
Fantastic to deal with! Fernando did awesome at our wedding!
We had the pleasure of having Joel (the owner) be our fabulous DJ and lighting expert.
He was amazing! The only reason ours costed over $1000 was because we also had Lethal Rhythms do up-lighting at our venue.
He made sure all the details were taken care of. From a set up for the ceremony location, to the Rabbi having a mic so our guests could hear him and our vows, to making sure the music fit the atmosphere, and setting up great photos for our photographer (like me, the bride, behind the DJ booth). I honestly could not have asked for a better DJ. He mashed up two of our favorite artists and we are getting him to make us a copy of that mash up because it was perfect! He was very professional and ensured that everything musically was smooth. We spoke on the phone several times and even talked through the whole day through music to make sure that we were on the same page. Seriously....book him, you won't regret it.
I was in a wedding in the middle of April where Joel from Lethal Rhythms was DJ'ing. My friend (the bride) wanted a fun vibe and this was the perfect DJ for that. The entire wedding moved seamlessly and Joel transitioned it all (from the intro's, to cake cutting, dancing,etc) real well. This guy does it all! The music was great and most everyone danced.
Much to my surprise I went to a wedding two weeks later and there he was again! Once again Joel led the reception well and mixed some good tunes. The music and setup had some variation from the last wedding so it seems like it is tailored to your preferences.
Overall I would say if you want to have a fun reception and actually have people dancing you might want to check out Lethal Rhythms!
Working with DJ Joel Rabe from Lethal Rhythms was a great experience. He is an amazing DJ and our friends and family had a fantastic time dancing all night. The only negative from the whole experience that he was unable to find the instrumental version of our first dance song as requested and didn't mention it to us until after the first dance. He did do a good job dropping out most of the drums to make it sound like the instrumental version, but it would have been nice to know before hand. Beyond that, Joel did a wonderful job and I have already recommended him to a friend!
Lethal Rhythms did a wonderful job with very little communication. We planned our wedding in GA from Alaska. DJ Joel did a great job managing the flow of the evening, making sure we didn't forget any important events (like the cake, garter, or bouquet). His music had great energy that kept people dancing. Kept his eyes on the bride and when a song was requested and started playing that she did not approve of, he honored her "don't play that" signal and skillfully mixed into the next song without missing a beat! Being that ours was a military wedding, DJ Joel did a great job improvising and mixing the traditional sword arch into the garter activities. Overall, we are very happy having DJ Joel and Lethal Rhythms at our wedding.
I have known Joel Rabe for 2 years and he is one of the best DJ's in Atlanta! He was the DJ at my best friend's wedding this past weekend in Roswell. Joel absolutely crushed the reception and guests were dancing the entire night! He played a mix of the best music and every age group was loving it including my Mom and Dad in their 60's!! Joel is a top notch DJ and I look forward to using him in the future.
Dj Fernando was spectacular! I didn't give him an easy task when I asked him to play music that would have my Latin family, Miami and Southern friends dancing the night away. But he delivered! Everyone had a blast ! I definitely recommend using lethal rhythms. Joel is also very helpful and responsive to any questions you may have! Two thumbs up!
Matt and I knew that we'd have a blast dancing at our wedding, but we were absolutely blown away. Lethal Rhythms was the best vendor we worked with, and Joel must be the best DJ in Atlanta because literally not a single person stayed in their seat. The dance floor was packed the entire night and stayed that way, even after the open bar had long been closed. So many of our family and friends told us it was the best night of their lives and how it was the most fun they had ever had. Brides and grooms - hire Joel if you want your wedding to be the best party of all time.
