Day One DJ is AMAZING! Joe is professional and easy to talk to. He answered ANY questions we had and had great ideas! Joe is not a cheesy DJ that you can find for cheap. His prices are comparable and worth every penny! We paid for additional speakers due to our L-shaped venue... Read More (Troy Burne, Hudson, WI - I also recommend!) as well as up-lighting. The sound system was perfect and the up-lighting took our already beautiful venue to another level! Not only did Joe help us plan a well thought-out reception, he threw an awesome dance party! Our dance floor was packed the whole night! The playlist was perfectly timed and every song was exactly what we wanted. We received so many compliments on our dance floor and some of our guests want to use Day One at their own wedding - I can't wait! I've never seen a dance floor as fun as the one at our wedding. I highly recommend Day One DJ - please invite me to your next event with Joe so I can experience another great party! ;)

We had an AWESOME experience with Joe from Day One DJ for our wedding on 9/29/17. The whole pre-wedding planning process was really easy.
