Hi Joe!
Wow- we can’t believe it’s been a week since our daughter, Morgan and our new son-in-law, Isaac were married! Their Wedding Day was so wonderful in every way - great weather, a beautiful ceremony, and the reception was FABULOUS….gorgeous flowers, delicious food & cake, and the most incredible music provided by the BEST DJ EVER – Joe Durivage!!! We are so thankful that the owner of The Little White Dress (the bridal shop where we got Morgan’s wedding gown) recommended you to us, Joe! From the moment we stepped foot in the reception tent, beginning with Morgan and Isaac’s first dance, the dance floor was the “center of happiness” for everyone there – thanks to YOU! You certainly know how to get the whole crowd rockin’, regardless of age, by playing a great variety of music - nostalgic tunes by Frank Sinatra, classic sing-a-longs like “American Pie” & “Piano Man”, a mix of the best boogie songs from the 70’s & 80’s, as well as more current jives like “Wobble” and “Fancy”. EVERYONE was dancing and having a blast - it was just awesome! We all LOVED The Newlywed Game, too – so cute!!! We have had numerous compliments from our guests on what a terrific job you did, and many people said that was the most fun reception they had ever attended! One of our favorite things you did was at the end of the reception, as Morgan & Isaac were making their exit to the getaway car, you played “We Go Together” from the movie Grease! It was a PERFECT ending to their special day!

BTW- We have four other daughters, Joe, so if/when any of them get married, we will surely be calling you to be the DJ at their wedding receptions! J In the meantime, please feel free to use us as references for your new brides who are planning for their own special day!
With Happy Hearts and Warmest Appreciation,

Kathy and David Mikolajczyk (parents of the bride)

Testimonial for Joe:

DJ Joe is by far the best DJ in the world, not just Myrtle Beach. I have been to many weddings and have yet to see a DJ as great as Joe. My family loved him from the day we met him. He is definitely a people person and easy to get along with. He knows how to read a room and keep the music changing so there are never any moments where people aren’t dancing. He had everyone in the room dancing and on their feet (even the grandmothers). Throughout the night the guests were coming up to me telling me how our DJ was amazing. He played all kinds of music that made all ages happy. He took requests and had the dance floor full until the very end. He was there on time, prepared and ready to go. He made each moment so special and fun. He even included a few arabic songs for my Egyptian family to belly dance to. He kept telling me before the wedding that his goal was to keep a smile on my face and I never stopped smiling and laughing. We all love Joe and would recommend him for your wedding! You will not be disappointed with his performance. Thank you Joe for making our wedding day beyond perfect and everything we ever dreamed of!

Joe is an amazing DJ, and I highly recommend him! At our son's wedding, he kept the guests dancing and thoroughly entertained. Several said it was the most fun they had ever had! He was very professional and prepared, and he planned the entire program with the bride and groom. Once the ceremony was over and Joe started, we just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves!

Joe,
I cannot go on enough about how hard Joe Durivage worked to ensure that we did have a DJ present for our wedding! Our wedding plans had to change last minute due to Hurricane Irene. Unfortunately we were not able to have our wedding at the Isles Restaurant on Saturday the 27th as they closed the one way bridge to the island due to excessive winds. Joe went out of his way to find us another DJ that... was able to travel to Raleigh, NC. Joe was very professional and caring in our situation. After losing lots of money from other vendors due to the hurricane, Joe's willingness to help and ensure that we did have a special day meant so much to us. Joe is the best!!!!!! Thanks so much from the bottom of our hearts!!!

Just wanted to let you know, you had a great part in making my daughter’s wedding a smashing success.
Everyone appeared to have a great time and the comments ranged from “this was the best wedding I ever attended” to “this was really fun and a wonderful start to a marriage.”
My wife and I both appreciated your attention to the event. Your ability to make the evening flow, take all requests for songs and make the occasion so personal was exceptional and much appreciated. We have one more single daughter left, so don’t be surprised if you hear from us again somewhere down the line.

We chose Joe to be the DJ for our wedding after only interviewing one other DJ. We immediately felt at ease with him and knew he would do everything to make our day perfect and special. Joe is all about helping the bride and groom create the reception of their dreams, and he delivers! I would highly recommend Joe to every couple getting married who want a DJ.  He listens to what you want and provides you with exactly that!  We are still getting comments from guests who say that our wedding was the most fun wedding they have attended because they danced the entire time.  Thank you, Joe!

While I met Joe Durivage because of another DJ's booked schedule, I have found him to be exactly as his card says, Music & Memories for a Lifetime! We have five separate cancer centers and our work is very stressful so I believe that party time should be incredibly fun. Joe exceeded every expectation and he surpassed anyone I had ever used in the past!
  Joe is no way 'just a DJ,'  he gets everyone involved in many different activities and we found we played as hard as we worked and a good time was had by all 'said our 157 participants'

Hi Joe,

Having you as our DJ on our special day was fantastic! Here is a feedback for your web site and a picture of us!

Joe Durivage was referred to us from our wedding coordinator, and boy are we happy that we took the advise! He made our day that much more special! He played the music my mother in law requested and made her very happy at the ceremony on the beach! For the reception we wanted to have a party with lots of dancing and everybody to have fun, well let me just say.....there was not even one person sitting on the tables through out the night! It was so much fun and the music he played was so in place and appropriate for every moment! Joe mixed in all of our favorite songs with many more requests from our friends and family and kept the dance floor full, everybody dancing and having a blast! We had a few European traditions at the reception and he did a fantastic job presenting them to our guests and explaining what we are doing while making it fun for everybody! Joe made our wedding day so special, working with him was a pleasure!
Feel free to have your future brides contact me anytime! Thank you so so much once again for all your help and making our day so special and fun for everybody.

Thank you so much Joe!

 Wow, what can I say!  Joe really got the party started for our daughter's reception! 

In the words of the old song, "oh, what a night!"   I truly believe our guests would still be on the dance floor. 
 
Thank you so much Joe for being a part of our daughter's beautiful wedding.  Your professionalism along with your personality simply accentuated a memorable night!  The music was always perfect, during the ceremony for the soloists, the cocktail reception and definitely at the reception.  Joe was everywhere all the time, yet very discreet.  We loved the wedding games and the special touches that you added with music to the entire event!  Most of all, with your aid, everything flowed beautifully and there were never any "dull or awkward moments". Our guests simply loved the wide range of music that included songs of the past for some of our older guests too!  Every time the music changed, there was someone that felt that song was played just for them!  We all felt like kings and queens! 
 
Our daughter, Stephanie, could not have chosen any better!  Now, we are just trying to figure out another occasion we can possibly use your services for!!!
 
Once again, thank you for being a part of such a very special event in our lives and making it so much better!

Quite an accomplishment! The selection of music you played was perfect and tied in nicely to what Joe and I like. Not easy blending our different tastes! I had so many compliments from our guests about what a fantastic experience this was for them and how much they enjoyed you and the music. Thanks again. I will be putting a referral on your web site and sending a picture along soon. Please provide my email to any future brides.

Finding a DJ 500 miles away was quite risky, but Joe exceeded all my expectations. He played all my requested music and kept my guests entertained throughout the entire evening.  Due to a rain delay the reception had to get started later than expected and Joe was more than accommodating to stay the extra time to provide our entertainment.  Joe always had a contagious smile on his face.  All my guests loved Joe.  Joe was awesome and I highly recommend his DJ services.

I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did at our daughter's wedding on July 12, 2010.  Since we were planning the out of town Ocean Isle wedding from Michigan and Florida, we really appreciated all your help and flexibility.  We actually had decided first not to even hire a DJ for the wedding, thinking we could just wing it without one.  Well, I can't believe how much a part of the wedding the DJ is.  You were so helpful in making suggestions regarding both the service (which was on the beach) and the reception (at the Isles Restaurant).  You friendliness and ability to "read" the crowd to know what type of music to play to keep the party going, genuinely shows how much you love people. I don't think there was 1 minute that our guests were not dancing and having fun.  Lindsey said she never left the dance floor from the time they cut the cake until the end of the evening.  We really appreciate all your help with making Lindsey and Andy's wedding exactly what they wanted.  Everyone had such a great time - even the "old people".

Hi Joe! The only reason our reception was such a success was because you were the one running it! The moment I met you, I knew you would make our wedding an unforgettable one. I was so impressed with our conversations before the wedding, and I knew that you took great pride in ...making sure everything was set that way we wanted it to be beforehand.
You took the time to to talk with us about how we wanted every minute of our ceremony and reception to be. Our reception's events went exactly as we planned, and that was because you were on top of everything! Everyone made comments about you and how you knew exactly what to do to keep everyone on the dance flo...or. That conga line - this dance had EVERYONE from the wedding in the line!

You kept the party going long into the night and made our guests very

exactly what we wanted and even helped in my Dad's surprise to me in the end.
You listened to everything we had asked and mixed in the favorite songs of our

Hi Joe,
I wanted to tell you that your services at the wedding of Cameron and
Amy Jackson were nothing less than perfect! You took your cues perfectly for the
ceremony. The music moved flawlessly between selections for the processionals
and the bridal march. You were very professional with the singer, and the
balance between the music and his voice was perfect. I am a huge fan of "fun"
receptions, and you did it better than any DJ in town! You made sure the music
was sprinkled with all the great songs Cameron and Amy had requested! Young and
old-everybody just wanted to dance! It was obvious that your experience has
taught you command of the room. You were so joyful announcing the bridal party,
and the pace was just right between the toasts, the cake, the garter and
bouquet tosses-all the things the guests enjoy! My favorite thing of all,
though, was the delight that was evident on the face of every guest! A wedding
is supposed to be a real celebration and you were an integral part of making
Cameron and Amy's wedding just that! It was a real pleasure to work with you
and meet you, and anybody planning a party or wedding in the Low Country would
be fortunate to have you entertain! God Bless you- I can't wait to work with you
again!

DJ Joe was an absolutely incredible DJ. To start, he met with us for preparatory sessions prior to our wedding during times and locations that were convenient to us and was always professional and upbeat. Throughout the whole process, DJ Joe has been relaxed but enthusiastic, very thorough and organized yet flexible, professional in appearance and behavior yet willing to foster a sense of pure enjoyment, and completely dedicated to providing a service that would make us happy.

My husband and I were looking for a DJ that would play the songs that we wanted to hear, and not corny songs that are usually played at weddings, and we wanted a huge dance party where everyone (including ourselves) were having fun. We specifically asked that the first hour of our reception be all hip-hop and top hits with just pure dancing. Wow did Joe deliver he not only played all the songs we requested (as well as my favorite dance song twice!) and none of the songs we banned, but he got everyone up dancing and kept us all dancing for five hours! We ended up having a classy black-tie-optional reception overlooking the ocean with a sit-down three-course meal intertwined with an incredible dance party.Joe had done so much preparation and was so well-equipped, that he transitioned us incredibly smoothly between all of the dancing, first dance, meals, speeches, slide-show, bouquet toss, even to the send-off and after-party. From the young to the old, everyone approached us afterwards to tell us how much fun they had at our wedding an d how great our DJ was. I can honestly say that my wedding reception was probably the most memorable, special and incredibly fun day of my thirty years.I believe that hiring a DJ like Joe Durivage is essential to create this sort of day and I am so happy I chose him for my wedding. He is light-hearted, organized, patient, dedicated, hard-working, and knows music. Joe is a fantastic DJ who listens to what his clients wants and puts his heart and soul into making this become reality. I would recommend DJ Joe to absolutely anyone. Warmest Regards, 
Jill

Kudos to you!!  As you probably noticed our 50th Anniversary party was a HUGE success.  You kept all those old people on the dance floor all evening--just as we requested.  We all had sore feet the next morning but we had big smiles on our faces.  We will be sure to recommend you.  We know Kelly thought you were great too.
When we have our next bash we will probably be ready for Lawrence Welk--but not for a while.
Again, many thanks for a memorable evening.

I don't know where to start...Meg & Nate's wedding was magical from start to finish, and you played a major part in the success of the reception.   I have always felt that a DJ at a wedding reception has control of the fun.   I am so glad you were at the controls for our evening.  I can't remember the last time I was at a wedding that the dance floor was NEVER empty!  You read the crowd perfectly, responding to what our guests enjoyed, and played a perfect mix of music.   Our guests had lots of compliments about the music played throughout the cocktail hour and reception.  As an MC...again...great.

Thank you again for contributing to a wonderful memory of my daughter and son-in-law's wedding.  Please feel free to have potential clients contact me!

Sincerely,

Kathy Johnson

Joe - You were really great Saturday night, we had compliment after compliment regarding the music selection. EVERYONE had a blast. Are you available for Christmas dinner? We're thinking of adding you as a member of the family.
Also, thanks for being flexible and staying around for the extra time, at a very reasonable cost. I hated to ask you to stay later than planned but no one wanted to stop dancing.
If anyone wants to call me about your services, please feel free to give out our phone number.
Thanks again Joe,

Hi Joe!
 
Thank you for everything! Everyone was incredibly pleased with the music and we had a blast dancing. My referral is below and brides are welcome to contact me by email and I will get back to them very quickly.
 
Joe was an incredible wedding DJ. I was very lucky to land him for my wedding. He was extremely organized and kept in touch by phone for all of my questions. His planning sheets were very thorough and he kept to what we went over while adding appropriate songs to keep the dancing and fun flowing! Joe is very professional and was a huge hit with everyone from my husband's college buddies to my grandfather! Be sure not to overlook the music-its one of the most important parts of your wedding!! Take your time with the planning sheets. My reception was so much fun because everyone was dancing and having a great time. Joe was what kept that momentum flowing. From using his mic's at the ceremony, to dinner music, to late night dancing everything was perfect. Thanks Joe!!

If you are looking for a very talented, fun and "up to date" DJ, Joe is your man!  He took the pressure out of all the planning!  With just a list of songs, he was able to find other songs that our guest would like, and keep people of all ages on the dance floor.  And let me tell you, my husband had one of the best nights of his life!  Thank you so much Joe for everything, you really made it a perfect reception for us, without you there our guest would have checked out after the first hour......but you keep them there for 3 more!  Thank you so much!

Joe,
I would be delighted to recommend you as anyone's DJ.  You were great.  Several people commented on you and thought you were wonderful.  Carole and Brandon's reception couldn't have been any better, thanks to you.

Pappalardi Wedding

June 20th, 2009

DJ Joe was an absolutely incredible DJ. To start, he met with us for preparatory sessions prior to our wedding during times and locations that were convenient to us and was always professional and upbeat. Throughout the whole process, DJ Joe has been relaxed but enthusiastic, very thorough and organized yet flexible, professional in appearance and behavior yet willing to foster a sense of pure enjoyment, and completely dedicated to providing a service that would make us happy.

My husband and I were looking for a DJ that would play the songs that we wanted to hear, and not corny songs that are usually played at weddings, and we wanted a huge dance party where everyone (including ourselves) were having fun. We specifically asked that the first hour of our reception be all hip-hop and top hits with just pure dancing. Wow did Joe deliver he not only played all the songs we requested (as well as my favorite dance song twice!) and none of the songs we banned, but he got everyone up dancing and kept us all dancing for five hours! We ended up having a classy black-tie-optional reception overlooking the ocean with a sit-down three-course meal intertwined with an incredible dance party.Joe had done so much preparation and was so well-equipped, that he transitioned us incredibly smoothly between all of the dancing, first dance, meals, speeches, slide-show, bouquet toss, even to the send-off and after-party. From the young to the old, everyone approached us afterwards to tell us how much fun they had at our wedding an d how great our DJ was. I can honestly say that my wedding reception was probably the most memorable, special and incredibly fun day of my thirty years.I believe that hiring a DJ like Joe Durivage is essential to create this sort of day and I am so happy I chose him for my wedding. He is light-hearted, organized, patient, dedicated, hard-working, and knows music. Joe is a fantastic DJ who listens to what his clients wants and puts his heart and soul into making this become reality. I would recommend DJ Joe to absolutely anyone. Warmest Regards, 
Jill

Hey Joe,
I would be more than happy to be contacted by your new brides...my family LOVED you, and honestly, the general consensus is that you were the best part of our wedding. The cake was awful (and falling over), our photographer has been MIA since the wedding (not only have we not gotten any photos back, but we haven't heard from her, either --- despite repeated calls and emails) and xxxxx was the wedding planner brides have nightmares about, but you were really awesome. If it weren't for your professionalism and the way you kept the party going, the day would have been completely lost.

Thanks again for helping to save my wedding day,

Kari

Amy jones Wedding

On June 28th, 2008

Fletcher and I got married in North Myrtle Beach.  We held our reception at Ocean Creek and were very pleased with all the musical selections Joe Durivage made that evening.  Throughout the whole process and months before, Joe discussed with us what type of music we would like as well as the schedule/timing for the reception.  Having not attended many weddings, Joe was a huge asset.  He explained the generic format of most receptions and provided many helpful suggestions, but allowed Flectcher and I still to make it our own.  Everyone at the reception commented on how well Joe did.  We all loved the music and how he varied the selections to ensure that all of our guests came out on the dance floor.  We highly recommend Joe Durivage for any event you would need a Disc Jockey.   He is very professional and attentive to the guests.  Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions.

Tedder Wedding

"Joe Durivage really made our wedding by far the best wedding we have ever been to! There was not one dull moment that all of our friends were not out on the dance floor having an amazing time.  Everyone I have talked to since said they have never had so much fun at a wedding before and bragged about how great our DJ was! It is such a great feeling to be able to look back and remember how much fun everyone had in large part to our professional, up-to-date, FUN DJ! His personality really shines through the great song selections.  He was able to see which types of songs our friends enjoyed and catered to us as the night progressed. He also had everyone song we requested throughout the night.  It was difficult making everyone finally leave! I recommend Joe for your wedding day wholeheartedly!!!"
