We could not have asked for a better DJ! DJ Joe was fantastic at our wedding on May 9, 2014. All of our guests said the same.

My husband and I met with a handful of highly rated entertainment companies in NJ before meeting with Joe P from Elite Sound Entertainment. We felt very lackluster about all of them. We understood that the DJ really makes or breaks the party, so this was one of the most... Read More important decisions we had to make when we were planning our wedding. You can have your wedding at the nicest, most expensive venue, but if you have a lousy DJ or band, your party is going to stink, to put it bluntly. We immediately felt very comfortable around Joe and loved everything that Elite had to offer. My husband and I are very meticulous people. For example, we visited over 15 wedding venues and developed extensive excel spreadsheets before booking one. We felt so confident about Joe’s ability to rock our party that we booked our wedding with him on the spot, which is very out of character for us. Leading up to the wedding, Joe was able to answer and address all of our questions and concerns. He was really good at putting us at ease. He even served as a mediator to resolve an argument my husband and I were having (in front of him, sorry Joe!) about which song we should play first. Joe truly went above and beyond his DJ duties. During the wedding, Joe really brought his A game. He knows how to play to the audience and customize according to the situation. We have a big drinking crowd and our guests were initially more concerned with drinking than with dancing, but Joe knew exactly what to play to get them on the dance floor. He had amazing command of the whole event. We’ve been to weddings where guests were on the dance floor dancing/not paying attention during speeches or during formal dances because the DJs/bands lost control. This never once happened with Joe. Countless people came up to us and told us that our wedding was the best they've ever been to, and we owe it all to Joe. If you know what you’re doing, you’ll book your party with Joe and Elite Sound Entertainment.
