Hey Joe,
I would be more than happy to be contacted by your new 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,

Hey Joe,

it's Amber and Jason. I wanted to thank you for everything that you did to help us prepare for our wedding. . It was the greatest day ever and you were such a big part of it. I don't think we could have found a better person  to  be our DJ if we tried. We had a blast and everyone else did too. Once again, THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!!

Joe, thank you for a fantastic DJ service at our wedding! Looking around at our guests, it was obvious that everyone was having a great time. You played a variety of music to suit all ages. Thank you for keeping the atmosphere relaxed and enjoyable. We were amazed at how organized you were from the very beginning.
Because of your expertise, we can look back at our wedding and remember how much fun we had dancing to all of our favorite songs. Thanks again!

Sincerely -
Jared and Abby

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.

If we’re ever back in the Myrtle Beach area, be sure we’ll call on you again! Continued success with your business. Take care.

Hey Joe,
We just wanted to thank you for being the DJ for our wedding. We could not have asked for anything more. From the beginning of our wedding plans you gave us great advice and guidance through the whole process. If any of our friends decide to get married at the beach we will definitely recommend you as the DJ. Thanks again.

"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 ! "

Dear Joe, We just wanted to take the time to “Thank You” for everything in regards to the entertainment you provided for our Holiday Party this past Friday evening at Premier Resorts at Barefoot Resorts. We appreciate your attention to detail and the time you took to ensure you knew exactly what songs to play, not to mention the fact that you were more than accommodating with song requests from our clients. The scavenger hunt was a huge hit and enjoyed by all. We appreciate the fact that you were able to take time out of your busy schedule to provide entertainment for our clients on such short notice. Our party was more than we could have ever imagined it to be and we were very pleased with your services. We will certainly keep you in mind for our future parties. Thanks again! Sincerely,

Hi Joe,
We want to thank you as well for a phenomenal job at our wedding ceremony and reception. The music was perfectly organized and the crowd was certainly entertained and very much involved in dancing. Keith and I had a blast. The online tools made it so easy to express exactly what we wanted. Again, thank you so very much for all the extra thought, time, and effort you put into our wedding day. And I almost forgot... I was so busy that day I forgot to wish you HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! So better late than never. I hope you enjoyed yourself :)

Joe did a great job at our reception. He knew just the right songs to play to get the guests up dancing.
I don't think our reception would have been the same without him.
I highly recommend Joe.

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,

Julie Myers

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.

Hi Joe! You did a fabulous job at our wedding!  Everyone including us had so much fun and the entire crowd danced the whole time.  It wasn't just a wedding reception, it was a party which we really wanted our wedding to be.  We appreciated your suggestions, your work with us and our interpreters.  It was very smooth and we were very pleased!  You were able to encourage the party to make it happen the way that we wanted!  We cannot think of something that we wished it could be different or changed something........
Thank you again!!  :-)

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

"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!!!"

Joe was fabulous from the start. He is professional and friendly. He was helpful with every aspect of the music planning. We would definitely recommend Joe to any bride or company for any occasion!
Outstanding service!

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!

Pete Pappas,
“Joe was above and beyond what we expected from a DJ. He was very easy to work with and offered a lot of suggestions that turned out just perfect the day of the event. 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!!

“Joe, you did an awesome job! We were extremely pleased with your selection of music and keeping everyone on the dance floor. From our youngest to our oldest, everyone had a magical and memorable evening!”

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,
Lynda Bryan,

We 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!

Tracy Evans

"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.

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!
