    Special Day Entertainment surpassed all of our expectations for our wedding. Joey made the entire planning process a breeze. He was so easy to deal with, his pricing was very reasonable, he is also very quick to respond via text, cell or email and is also willing to drive a fair distance to meet you in person. He will do all it takes to ensure your day is complete perfection. After our final conversation with Joey the night before rehearsal to confirm some last minute things we were left at ease without a worry in the world. We knew after our first conversation with him that we had to book with him. His amazing reviews do little justice to how incredibly talented this man truly is..Can't imagine my wedding without him. All of our friends and family were very happy with him. Very well organized, all around pleasure to deal with and just a great guy, book with Joey today! You won't regret it!

    We had Joey do our wedding and he was amazing! He showed up ahead of time ready to work very professional and friendly and kept the party going all night. He called the week of to go over everything and made helpful suggestions when needed to make the night go as smooth as possible. You can tell he's been in the business for a while and loves what he does. I would recommend to anyone needing DJ services.

    Great experience !!!!
    Dj Joey was awesome! He was very professional and played great music that kept everyone dancing! He even went out of his way to find out our favorite song,which was Whitney Houston's " I wanna dance with somebody" and used it as our final song. The fact that he took that time and used that song made our day even more special! He was also a very sweet guy and he was attentive to our timeline. I would definitely use him again in the future and would 100% recommend him to anyone. Well worth the money!

    Absolutely Outstanding!
    Can't say enough positive things about our wedding DJ! He provided a service that included many of the things we asked for, and went beyond our expectations. From the beginning, we were able to get a clear idea of the service. DJ Joey communicated clearly and stayed in touch to answer our questions. His performance at the reception was entertaining, professional, and smooth-running. We got what we wanted: a DJ who was on time and prepared, had great equipment and one of the most professional DJ setups I had ever seen., play greatest hits and wedding favorites, as well as take requests. All the important dances were beautiful since we were able to coordinate our playlist and special songs with the DJ. He's got a great presence and attitude, and adds his own style with unique tracks and not just what you expect to hear. We were having a great time thanks to the constant flow of awesome music! Can't recommend this DJ enough!

    Professional service and great music
    When looking for a DJ for our wedding my husband and I wanted someone with experience for a great price and we got just that! Special day entertainment took little bits about us and turned our wedding into a party that was personal and fun! After speaking to Joey, the DJ, about all the details of how the wedding should flow my mind was at ease. My husband and I can be very indecisive and it was a tremendous help to have some of the decision making burdens taken off of our shoulders. When our wedding day came I didn't have to worry about a thing. Joey made sure to let us know when the next speech, or toast, or serving, would be happening and kept our party flowing and on time. He equipped my officiant with a mic so that everyone could hear him and played appropriate music during every moment. He even took pictures from his DJ station! What a wonderful surprise. Not even 24 hours later I had almost 100 extra photos of my friends and family dancing the night away. It was wonderful and I could not have asked for a better night. It was perfect.

He helped with a lot of details of the wedding as well that I had not thought of. He was nothing but professional, and was a great DJ! Joey has clearly been doing this for a long time , he can definitely read a room to keep the energy going. All of this at a very reasonable rate. Thank you!!!

    DJ Joey was fabulous. So many DJs to choose from, it became quite a challenge to pick the right one. My decision came down to the reviews. I was not sure how much weight to give them but as it turned out, I glad we did. He played the perfect music and even came out to the floor to help get the party started. The DJ was there nice and early for set up and came highly recommended by the planners at my venue.

    DJ Joey kept in touch with me over the 6 weeks (from when I hired him until the day of my party) on a regular basis. His contract and packet of info was easy to read and very helpful in giving ideas for music selection. Upon receiving the packet he called to review it and also gave ideas of things to do at the party, which I welcomed. When he arrived (15 minutes early to the prearranged time) on the party day he had a copy of the schedule that I provided to him and he helped to keep me on track. He dressed in very professional attire and had nice equipment. He was very personable and very funny. He kept in touch with me through out the night to make sure that everything on the list was being done and close to the time I had listed. Joey kept the party going, even after a majority left, all the way to closing time. Everyone complimented me on the DJ; how fun he was, how he had a great selection of music, and best of all...he did a karaoke duet with my daughter. I highly recommend him and he will be my, and all who came, our only "go to" DJ.

    First of all, I would give more than 5 stars if I could. The bottom line: not only is Joey a fantastic DJ, he is super easy to work with, professional, & kind. Let's be honest, planning a wedding is not easy. In fact, it's an epic organizational feat (or nightmare, depending on how you want to look at it). I was so delighted when we hired Joey for our wedding, as I immediately felt like I had one less thing to worry. No matter what my question was, Joey always replied with lightening fast speed. I can't say enough good things about Joey, his prices are fair. He loves music & what he does. You can tell that he truly cares. He is so organized. And as mentioned before, he is an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Joey for any event or wedding! Do yourself a favor & hire him!

    Joey provided the music for our ceremony through our reception. He had a full questionnaire and a sample wedding to help guide us on our choices. He made sure the music we did not want was not played which was awesome since my husband hates country music. He kept the flow of the reception running smoothly. He was more than just a DJ that played music, he was a fabulous mcee.

    DJ Joey was the DJ at our wedding, we called him last minute because our DJ backed out two weeks before our date and he did a fantastic job! In addition to providing reasonably priced DJ/ music services he also provided a photobooth which was a huge hit. He was responsive both via email and by phone when (sometimes frantic) questions occurred as part of the planning process and made sure to include all our requests during the wedding. We could not have been happier with his services - very professional, friendly and affordable. He was an awesome DJ and MC and did a beautiful job for our event. If I ever have future DJing needs I would definitely use his service again. Thanks for helping to make our day special Joey!

    I met Dj Joey at my friend's wedding DJed, and he was awesome! I knew I needed him for mine. We had 150 people and his audio equipment was stellar. His choice of music was totally perfect for the crowd, and he actually mixed a turn table, unlike most other DJs I had seen who just play various top 40 hits. Every track we requested he had, and as I said, the sound quality was amazing. He had really amazing artists that I'd never even heard of that were perfect for the event. If you're hosting any event, wedding, party, etc., you definitely need to hire Joey.

    Joey, of Special Day Entertainment did exactly what Our Bishop Kenny Class of 1966 asked of Him. He was prompt, engaging and played any song we requested within seconds of our request. His sound system was clear and strong with an excellent flashy lighting system. He quickly accommodated our request to move the volume up or down to accommodate announcements. This was our 50th High School class reunion and many of our classmates had not seen one another in 50 years. By having a DJ to play any song we wanted helped to bring back fond memories, which made our Reunion wonderful. I would hire Him again for any event I am apart of in the future.

    DJ Joey, was fantastic! He was responsive from day one all the way through to the end. He understood all of our requests and made the evening so fun! All of the guests, from the youngest at 8 years old, to the oldest at 89, absolutely loved him!

    We enjoyed working with Joey. Joey is extremely helpful, flexible,& accommodating from day 1. He makes suggestions that make a party even better. Joey was very approachable to our guests & has a great sense of what the guests need- whether to layback, amp it up or involve guests. We couldn't be happier & we' d use him again in a NY SKINNY MINUTE!

    Joey was absolutely perfect. Couldn't have gotten anything better. Completely made our day perfect. Joey was extremely friendly and did everything we asked and so much more. So glad he was a part of our big day he really made it special for us. He is definitely a five star entertainer. Thanks again so very much Joey.

    Joey was so awesome, he had everyone dancing, having fun and laughing from the very beginning! After just a few talks on the phone of him getting to know what you wanted and liked he took the rest in his control. He was a pleasure to talk to and work with! No hiccups and no problems :) Excellent.

    Joey was our DJ for our recent wedding this January, and we couldn't have been more pleased that we chosen him. We were impressed right from the beginning with how quickly he responded to any questions or concerns, and he was great about giving advice based on his experience but also letting us be the ones to ultimately make decisions. On the day of the wedding, he arrived early, made sure the reception ran as smoothly as possible, and really kept everyone happy and entertained. We would recommend Joey 100% for any DJ needs.

    Working with DJ Joey was one of the easiest parts of my wedding planning process! He was extremely accessible and accommodating. His help and suggestions made it so simple. As if that wasn't enough, the music was FANTASTIC! Everyone at the wedding danced the entire night. DJ Joey did an unbelievable job of reading the energy of the crowd. As a bride, I can tell you how much stress was taken off me. I highly recommend using this service for your wedding!! Dana T.

    Joey was fantastic! All day today people who attended last night have raved to me about the job he did. Joey was superbly professional and made sure everyone had a good time. Joey was set-up and ready to go well before start time. His equipment was top of the line too. We couldn't be happier with the experience.

    We couldn't have asked for a better D.J. than Joey! Not only did he get there hours before the wedding to set up he did a wonderful job on the ceremony music. Everything was timed just perfectly! My sister called him the night before the wedding to arrange a special surprise Dance with my nephews and he got the songs together and arranged it. He was a true professional. Everyone told us how much fun they had. He kept the party going late into the night. Thank you so much Joey for making our special day so fun and memorable.

    We were seeking DJ services for our October 2014 wedding reception. After the initial phone interview, Joey made us feel at ease through his professionalism. Except for the traditional dances, we gave him free range during the reception, which in my opinion took the stress out of the day. The week prior was chaotic with final details of the wedding that I had forgotten to submit the changes to our itinerary, although it was not a big deal. Joey had an understanding of mine and my fiancé's personality as well as, our guests. He was ahead of schedule the day of event and stayed beyond most of our guests. Even after the last dance of the night was announce I asked him to play a two-step for my divorced parents to dance to. Joey did a spectacular job and was a pleasure to work with. I will be sending all future brides your way! Thank you!

    Joey was the DJ for my wedding on 8/16/2014 and he was awesome from start to finish. Joey was very helpful throughout the whole planning process and was more than accommodating with any changes/requests that I made. The day of the wedding, Joey arrived early and was attentive and accommodating to myself and all of my guests. My guest loved Joey and the dance floor was filled the whole night. I received so many compliments about how wonderful and fun the reception had been. Make sure you include the shoe game!! My husband and I as well as my guests loved it! Thank you so much Joey for making my day perfect and everything that I imagined it would be!

    We used Joey's services for our wedding and were extremely glad that we did! He was very understanding and helpful throughout our whole wedding process. I have worked with other DJ's in the past whose services were set at a much higher price and they didn't come close to what we received from Joey. Not only was he an outstanding DJ, but his price is VERY reasonable and we received way more than what we paid for. He is great at working with your song list and a great entertainer. I would recommend Joey to anyone.

    I was so busy on my wedding day that I didn't meet Joey until I was about to walk into my wedding.. pretty crazy considering the DJ Can make or break the party. Joey was perfect! Everyone has an amazing time and he even surprised us with a dance with my grandparents! I am so glad to be married and I'm glad it is a once in a life tome thong but if I had to plan a wedding again I would 110 percent choose Joey!
