TESTIMONIALS

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,

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!

I got many compliments through out the evening from the music/dancing. The conga line was a hit, we had every single person out of their chair and on the dance floor.

Thank you again,

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!!!

Joe,
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.
Thanks again,

Joe,

I hope this finds you well!  I just wanted to again say thank you for a wonderful job at our wedding in September.  We really had such an amazing time!  Everyone LOVED the newlywed game as well as all the music and fun.  You truly know how to keep a party going.  We could not have imagined a more perfect day (despite all of the rain) and appreciate all that work that you did to make that happen.  I am attaching the picture my uncle took of us at the wedding.  We hope to be able to work with you again sometime!

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!

Thank you so much for making our reception a truly memorable fun and energetic experience. You were able to get my family of non-dancers out on the floor in an unbelievable heat! 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.

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.

“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!!!”

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,

What a lifesaver! With 45 minutes to go before our wedding, we found out that the DJ we had booked had written down the wrong date and would not be able to make it to our wedding in time. The caterer said he knew a great DJ in town and gave us Joe’s number. The wedding was to start at 7 p.m. and we didn’t contact Joe until around 6:25. By 7 p.m., he was set up ready to go just as if he had
planned it all along. The ceremony went off without a hitch including the special songs we had planned. The reception was great and Joe kept the dance floor full all of the time. Many commented at what a great job the DJ did. I would recommend Joe to any and everyone. He did a fantastic job and turned what could have been a disaster into a wonderful event. I would be glad to talk to anyone about what a great choice he would be for any event.

“Joe was the DJ at our recent wedding reception and did a fantastic job! When we met him before the event, it became clear he was a good match for our wedding. He asked if we had any songs we wanted played, and I e-mailed him a list of songs. I was so surprised at the reception to find that he had researched all the songs and incorporated them into the program. He even managed to find a college fight song from my husband’s alma mater–this made all of my husband’s out-of-town guests very happy! It seemed that the dance floor was never empty because Joe knew the right songs to play to keep the guests moving. The funniest thing that happened was at the the end of the evening when Joe was supposed to be leaving—the dance floor was still full and the guests kept begging him to “just play one more song” —- that was the most obvious sign to us that we had chosen the right person for our DJ. Joe will always be highly recommended by my husband and myself as a high-energy professional who loves what he does ! “

Hi Joe,
I was so go to hear your voice. It brought back good memories of the night you DJ’s my parent’s 50th Anniversary party. Joe, you did a FABULOUS job. The way you researched and found those old songs for my parents was only part of what made the night special. You were great at pacing the evening, you worked in everyone’s requests and you stayed until everyone had their fill of dancing. And after playing music which got us all to the dance floor, you closed with evening with a lovely ballad – a perfect ending to the evening. I can’t say enough good things about you Joe. The music you provided all afternoon and evening made the event even more special. Sincerely,

Disc Jockey review;

On April 11, 2008 we had a beach wedding at a private mansion in North Myrtle Beach. We hired Joe Durivage as our disc jockey supplying him with our picks of music to include all of the ceremony. My wife, myself and our whole family could not believe the job Joe did. One his timing on all the music was perfect, two he set up his own equipment on the beach to insure great quality, then lugged it back to the mansion. Through out the night he had the 140 people laughing, dancing and not wanting this event to ever end. He is a guy from the 60’s stuck into a 30 year old body, knows music from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today’s hits. His mix was right on target.
I and my family highly recommend Joe as a wedding planner, disc jockey, or event planner. We would have no one else next wedding. Should you want to discuss his great work, feel free to call Buz at

I had the absolute pleasure of working a wedding with Joe Durivage. He went out of his way to help with the ceremony as well as being the “voice” at the reception. I do not have a loud voice myself so I rely on the DJ to run the show and do crowd control if you know what I mean! He did a great job keeping the focus on the bride and groom at the reception while we were sharing the room with the local patrons.
Seriously, Joe is a professional, caring man and I can’t wait to work with him again!

First of all congratulations!  We got married last June in Pawley’s and had a blast.  Joe is great and also originally from NY.  We saw him DJing at a friends’ wedding and hired him on the spot.  We met up with him a few days before the wedding and gave him a list of what we wanted to hear (and what we didn’t – Macarena!)  and he stuck to the list exclusively.  He was also able to suggest some things that we hadn’t thought of.  He’s got tons of experience and really knows how to keep things going.  We had an absolute blast at our wedding.  I can’t recommend him enough to you!  Good luck with the wedding planning – but definitely get Joe!  It will make your day a whole lot easier!  Hope that helps!

His advice was right on and he knows what he is doing so just trust him. Everyone at our reception had a wonderful time and we have received many positive comments about the music. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for a DJ and know that once it is in his hands-its something that you can check off your list and not think about it anymore because he will take care of everything.” Thanks Joe!!

Hi Joe, You were the perfect choice  for DJ for the Myrtle Beach  Middle School Harvest Festival!  I have never seen the students participate with a DJ the way they did with you!  You were very engaging and interactive with the students.  Your idea for a student recommended play list had them preparing for the big day weeks in advance and planning to attend to hear “their” song.  Your interaction with the students had everyone on their feet, dancing and enjoying themselves! Your equipment was excellent and your choice of “clean” songs was much appreciated in a school environment!  I appreciate your timely set-up and smooth delivery of everything we contracted for . Your professionalism made my day enjoyable  and hassle free.  I have recommended you for the remaining school events for the year! Sincerely,


Harvest Festival Chair

HWe couldn’t have asked for a better DJ for our daughter’s sweet sixteen party.  He was great with the kids and so patient with their requests.  He played what the kids were asking him to play, yet he managed to keep the music so clean.  He tried to get everyone involved by playing games like musical chairs, etc.  My daughter and her friends had made the comment earlier in the night that playing games would be too immature for them but they ended up having a ball!   I will definately recommend Joe to anyone who is looking for a DJ and use him myself in the future. Thanks Joe!

“Joe, I honestly can not thank you enough for being an amazing DJ at our wedding.  Kevin and I were so impressed with your professionalism, friendly personality, flexiblity to deal with our scheduling changes and most of all your willingness to honor the requests of our guests — allowing them to really shape this special evening with us.  As an event planner myself, I was very nervous about planning a destination wedding where I would not be able to personally interview a DJ in advance.  From the first moment you where there, it was clear that we made the right choice in hiring you.  We and our guests adored you!  Thank you so much for adding your touch to our special day!  Many thanks,

Hi Joe,
Our Christmas Party was a blast!  Everyone had a super time and truly enjoyed the entertainment and music. I think they especially enjoyed the scavenger hunt. With such a varied group it is hard to select music that pleases everyone, but you did a great job!  From 25 to 85 is a tough age range, congratulations and thank you for a job well done.  Oh, one more thing. MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Joe,
I can not thank you enough for the great time we had at the party on 12/7/07. The President of the company made the comment on how great you were. You really catered to the different age range of people that we had, he really liked that. The games were a big hit and still being talked about. Same time, same place next year!
