Testimonials | The Word on the Street is...

For years, we have been partnering with couples to make their wedding night special, memorable, and as unique as their relationship. Here are just a handful of happy brides and grooms, many of which we now call friends. E-mails available upon request.

“Thank you Joe for making our wedding reception so memorable! From the start, our wedding reception never had a dull moment. You kept the energy high and kept our guests entertained throughout the whole night. We had guests of all ages and you did a great job engaging all to be on the dance floor! Thanks for helping us make our wedding night amazing and a night that we will always remember.”

“Sometimes writing is difficult and sometimes it is easy. This is the easiest thing I’ve ever written. Joe came to us by way of a recommendation from a friend. My wife and I didn’t know what to expect when we first met him but I can only say he put us at ease immediately and we became instant friends. On our big day he shone. A huge hit with everyone young and old and played great ‘danceable’ music! He’s a gifted individual with a big heart and he loves what he does and he does it with class. Thanks Joe for making our day complete.”

Terry Boyle

“Dj Joe put the fun back in and took the stress out of planning our wedding! Joe gracefully balanced professionalism with familiarity, so that we were not only 100% confident placing our reception/dance in his hands, we felt like we were placing it into the hands of a friend. We would get married all over again…JUST to hang-out with DJ Joe!”

Erika Lynn

“We met with Joe a few months before the wedding to get to know him and talk about how wtte envisioned our day. Upon meeting him, Terry and I liked him instantly. He was really interested in hearing our story and how we came together as a couple. We gave him a pretty “loose” list of songs that we wanted, named off a few bands that we liked, and of course, told him our song, the one that we wanted for our first dance. We had a blast at the reception! Our family and friends remarked to me afterwards about how great the DJ was. They liked how he really made an effort to meet and get to know everyone a little. And he was really great with the kids who were at the wedding- gave them maracas, a tambourine. How awesome!! Most of our friends stayed until the very last song of the night, and said that it was one of the most fun nights that they’d had at a wedding. We have Joe to thank for that. Thank you so so much, Joe, for helping to make our day so special!”

“From the first phone call to the last dance we felt soooooo comfortable working with the guys at Open Bar. They were personal, professional, light hearted, humorous, and most importantly they took the time to learn about us. Who does that?
Open Bar was able to connect with even the most resistant “dancers” in our family. It was great to see them open up, and enjoy themselves.”

You really showed us what an amazing DJ is supposed to be and should be. I really hope I can send you some more clients, for I know that even if there are crazy circumstances (like last night), you will be amazing.”
