About this pro

How does your service stand out?

**First of all, congratulations and the video above shows my work at about the 9 minute mark but the whole video is breathtaking so please enjoy!** My service stands out because I give my all to create the best event possible! I communicate consistently and listen to the client and make the day they envision become reality. From the introduction of the wedding party, to the last song of the night, I'll give you total control to customize your event to your liking! I have my college degree in Electronic Engineering Technology so I have a vast knowledge about sound dynamics, clarity, ambiance, room acoustics and gobo style/effect lighting. I'm also a military veteran so I'm comfortable working with all ethnicities to ensure a successful event! This reflects in the great service I provide! I talk very little and keep dinner music at a comfortable volume level to allow for general conversation. I turn it up a notch and activate my light show during your first dance or once the dance floor opens to promote dancing! I'm prompt, professional and have all genres of music including line dances and clean party jams to keep feet tapping, heads bopping and the dance floor packed! My extensive playlist is stored digitally on a 128 GB flash drive that will last until the party is over without repeats! My music is high quality sounding without skips or glitches! I exceed your expectations and not your budget while making your day successful and memorable for you and your guests! :)

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I like a friendly and fun crowd. I like an energetic party atmosphere because that's a sign of a great event. I also like seeing the bride and groom or whoever is being celebrated have a great time! I enjoy the compliments I receive from the guests during an event! One time I played YMCA for a wheelchair bound grandmother of a bride. They both later thanked me and said their dreams of actually dancing together came true! It's the small things that I appreciate from my clients that not only makes me a better DJ, but a better person as well. I have clients from 10 years ago that tell me family members still reminisce about the great time they had! Creating memorable events like that is my goal along with providing the best service possible!

    Great Service!
    Joe did a wonderful job at our wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ. He was fun, easy to talk to, and very flexible. Not to mention the best price in town! I originally got ahold of him via Facebook and we agreed to meet at a location. We signed the contract there and he gave us the document of all our wedding songs to chose. It was so easy! I highly recommend him. Great service!

    Joe did an awesome job at our wedding on 4.16.16 at Buffalo Trace Distillery. From start to finish our guests had an amazing time! Everything went as planned and he made sure that guests knew when important parts of the wedding were happening. He was professional and timely and had done everything we asked. Joe really went above and beyond of us and our guests. I can't thank him enough for making our day that much better! If we ever need a DJ again he will be it. Thanks so much Joe!!

    Joe was awesome and professional. He responded immediately to my concerns. The guest at the party were impressed with how he mixed the music and the timing. Several wanted to know where I found him. He made the playlist for me and I am playing it on my way to work. The event was Saturday and today Monday I am still smiling how awesome my party was. I didn't have to worry about anything because he was "on it". Thank you again joe. He also closed out the event very well with a dance for my husband and me....loved it!!!

    First of, Joe is just awesome! He gave us an awesome deal of $425 for 4 hours. He brought everything with him that he needed besides a table, but our venue provided that. He kept the party going. What I really loved was when he could tell a song wasn't a hit with the guests, he would fade it out and start another song. At one point through the night I'm pretty sure Joe was on the dance floor teaching some of our guests some dance moves, it was the best! Secondly, a week before the wedding I realized I needed someone for ceremony music (stupid me), I emailed Joe and he called me and told me he could do it, no problem. The ceremony was only $100 extra. (Total for the night being $525). From meeting with Joe you just get a sense of his personality and can instantly see how your event will go. He makes makes planning an event easier, and everyone could use relief when planning a big event! If I ever get the chance to plan another event where I need a DJ I know I'll be contacting Joe. You seriously can't go wrong with him. If anyone reading this wants more information, feel free to contact me because Joe is too good to pass up! Cefoch01@Louisville.edu

    Everything was perfect from start to finish. Every request was played, and even when things didn't go as expected, through no fault of DJ Joe Smooth, somehow he managed to make things great! Due to a mix up with the limo driver, the wedding party was late. We decided to forgo the traditional dances and open the dance floor. Toward the end of the evening, Joe played "our song" just for us. The moment was magical. I recommend him to anyone and everyone!

    Jeana, Thank you for your kind words and you're exactly right! I saw you two both together and knew that magical moment would come to life!

Thank you for everything and I was honored and very proud to DJ your event! :) Joe

    Our wedding was on September 5 2015. We started looking for a DJ in March and Joe Smooth Foster answered my request. He is very reasonable and he is an awesome DJ. Our wedding was outside he set up outside and set up inside for the reception. We had an awesome time. Joe you are the best DJ we ever had. I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for a DJ for a wedding or a party or what ever the occasion give Joe Smooth Foster a call. Joe you did an awesome job. We will definitely use you in the future and recommend you to all our friends and family!!!

This was a highlight event of the year because everyone was so engaged and really wanted to see you both happy! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this event and blessings to your future! Joe

    DJ joe smooth was very flexible and accommodating. His prices were reasnable. However DJ smooth took a while to set up and was not ready with our intro songs even though we had sent them to him over a week in advance. He did make a mix CD for a special dance for us and sent it to us in advance which was very kind
    Replied to Jesse D. - Sep 8, 2015

    Jesse, In spite of your ceremony being setup outside, I had to transfer my whole set by elevator to the second floor for the reception. I also had to wait to put my equipment on the elevator because there was only one and it had to be shared with the caterers, guests and other personnel. This took more time than expected. Yet it took me only 20 minutes to transfer my whole set to the second floor. Music was established in 25 minutes.I think that is a great time considering the bulk of equipment I used for this event, stairs I had to haul it up and the heat factor. The wedding coordinator should've informed you of this as I setup as fastly as I could. Overall, your event was very successful and the "hora dance" and other German classics played perfectly with your event. Everyone enjoyed themselves from the beginning to the end and I thought you were 5 star satisfied with my services at the end of the night.

As far as the actual wedding, he kept the flow of the wedding going so that guests wouldn't get bored. He was extremely flexible! He took my plan for the day and made it reality, and even gave us a cd mix of the songs we had requested. At the end of the night, he really had our crowd going and we were all sad that the party was over. He couldnot have done anything better!

    We met Joe @ Captain D's for lunch a couple weeks.before the wedding to go over our song choices..our wedding was on Friday Oct 3, 2014 @ 7pm @ South Park Country Club...Joe did a great job!..He arrived in enough time before the wedding to go ahead and set up.. our ceremony was outside, so he set his speakers and Mic rophone up outdoors as well to make sure our ceremony could be heard..we got so many compliments on how good he was and that he played a good variety of music.. as far as I know, he played just about all the songs we had requested..the only thing is that, somehow our dollar dance songs didn't get played..I had a couple people mention about not having the dollar dance...I'm not sure what happened with that,probly just a miscommunication.. overall tho, Joe did an awesome job and we all had a great time out on the dance floor all night long...He even threw in bubbles while we were on the dance floor which was a big surprise! Thanks Joe! Lucinda and Paul

After the cake cutting ceremony, you wanted the dance floor to open. I was not aware that you still wanted the dollar dance because I was never informed on when it was to happen. Overall, still an awesome event as you stated,and I was honored to be a part of it. Congrats and best wishes to your new beginning! Joe

    I made sure every song she had on her list was played. She and her friends fully enjoyed themselves and wore themselves out from dancing! I also played every song that was requested. The lights worked perfectly and it was so much energy in the room, I even got out on the dance floor and done the Cupid Shuffle. Thanks again Jennifer and I look forward to your other daughters' sweet 16 party in 2015!

    Joe was all set-up when the planning committee arrived at the venue early. He had a variety of songs from different time periods which was great since we had attendees from age 20 through 90. He also played requested songs and kept the party going! Joe was very professional and easy to work with!

    Maria, Thank you for your great hospitality and kindness. It was awesome seeing some of the best medical professionals and doctors in the state dance and just have a great time! Your venue was absolutely gorgeous on the UK campus. My promptness and readiness is one of my best traits. I enjoyed creating that soothing feeling when guests first walked in the room. Its a calming effect plus it relaxes them to cordially enjoy themselves. I also catered my playlist so every age group attendee could hear a song they loved.Thank you for this opportunity and I look forward to next years Christmas Party!! Joe

    DJ Joe Smooth rocked the house last night at my daughter Abby's sweet 16 birthday party! He kept the music flowing all night long and had the kids out on the dance floor. He found songs by my daughter's favorite singer (Austin Mahone) even though he's only an up and coming singer and dedicated one of his songs to my daughter. On top of that he even danced with the birthday girl. I have known Joe for quite some time. He has DJ-d several events for me. He was very professional as always. He worked hard to make sure Abby's experience was special. She really liked the cd he provided afterwards as well!

    Thanks Kelsey-From start to finish this was one of the best college parties I've ever done. At the beautiful Galt House in Louisville,Ky.,people stayed packed on the floor and danced until the final song was played. The song "We are Family" was a perfect sorority song for the members to dance to together. The awesome lighting filled the room and the sound acoustics were perfectly balanced.Thanks Kelsey for being professional and helpful and I look forward to the next KDT college party!!

The students, faculty, and staff have given me feedback on how much they enjoyed the music Joe played and the fun atmosphere Joe helped to create. I highly recommend that anyone who needs a DJ hires Joe for their event. He is wonderful to work with before, during, and after the event. I will definitely hire him to DJ all our upcoming events.

    I highly recommend Joe for your D.J. for any event. We used him for our wedding and he did an awesome job! Our schedule for the day got a little mixed up so the pictures that we were supposed to have taken prior to the reception didn't get done. Our reception became hectic because we were trying to get all of our pictures done at the same time as we are trying to go through the events of the reception and keep the party going so everyone would stay entertained and want to stay. So my husband and I were all over the place. Joe did a fabulous job at keeping the crowd entertained, but more importantly at being flexible to working around all of the changes that we were asking of him. We received several compliments from the guests that he did an awesome job and was very friendly. He was also a pleasure to work with. Prior to the wedding he was very efficient at working with me on arranging the song list and schedule. He also worked with me because I saw a special promotion he was running but I didn't qualify for it for some reason. I can't remember if it was because I was a day late or something, but either way, I just remember he worked with me on it. Then at the end he gave us a CD that had all of the songs that we chose for the reception. I can't remember if he advertised that he did that or not, but we were surprised and extremely appreciative of it. We listened to it as we drove on our honeymoon and it made for such a special trip for us and we loved it!!! Joe is awesome! He is the most reasonably priced DJ we found and he is definitely not one of those "you get what you pay for" experiences because he did everything perfectly and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you Joe for helping us have such an awesome day!

    Joe was the DJ for my wedding and did a phenomenal job. We requested numerous songs from small artists and he was able to include all of them. His dinner music fill-ins were great choices, and he was very flexible with last-minute adjustments to the order of events at our reception. Joe is extremely friendly and has the ability to be either the center of attention or work behind-the-scenes according to your preferences. I would definitely recommend Joe for your upcoming event.

    DJ Joe provided the music for my our daughter's sweet 16 birthday party. What a boring party it would have been without a DJ. Joe kept the music going all night and had some nice lights that brought the party from boring to hopping!! We would recommend him and will use him again in the future as our other daughter is already planning her sweet 16! However, the disc he made for our daughter was blank. It did not play, we tried it in many devices. Maybe we could get another copy made?

    Joe was prompt and played until the end of my daughters Sweet 16 party. He is very thorough, professional, courteous, and knowledgeable about music and his equipment. His light-show was spectacular as it moved with the music. The sound was of outstanding quality and not to loud. For the venue, the sound was perfect and people could still have conversations. Many of the guests complemented me on the DJ, and were impressed with the sound and lights. I will definitely use Joe again and recommend him to anyone who needs a DJ and expects professionalism at it best.

    I think he would be a great DJ for any event. He was very polite and responded quickly to all my messages. His quote was very reasonable. He was the farthest away from my venue and I didn't think it would be fair to choose him at such a low quote given the price of gas. After his travel expenses he would not have made much from doing the job. When I let him know that we had chosen someone else he still congratulated me on my engagement and said to keep him in mind for any future jobs. He was very professional and had I lived closer to him he would have been my top choice.

    DJ Joe was great at my brother's 40th birthday party in April. We asked Mr. DJ if he could play R&B and Ole Skool Music at our party, he provided colorful stroll lights and speakers. My family keep asking when is the next basement party! I would recommend Mr. DJ to my family and friends!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My process is simple yet very important to the success of your event. Once you accept the price and approve my service, I'll send you the contract. This details your name, address of the event , 2 emails and phone numbers, time duration and price. Once this is signed, your'e guaranteed my services and not a fill in DJ. I usually meet with the client a month or two prior to go over the specific details with the wedding agenda document and the sign the contracts. At the event, prior to introducing the wedding party, I'll check one final time to make sure the wedding order is still correct. The reception will then flow smoothly and flawlessly and will be the way you envisioned!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have my degree in Electronic Engineering Technology. This degree has enabled me to understand high end DJ mixer modules, computers and software at a higher level and understand room acoustics and lighting positioning to utilize the room structure for the best dynamic.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Yes!(Prices may vary depending on distance and the time duration.) *Basic Pricing Packages *Package1-$450hr reception plus travel/gas ,setup/breakdown,announcements, mics for toasts, powerful quiet fan, speakers on stands,limbo stick, 2 sound activated colorful lights and a rotating one! *Package2-Add $25 for ceremony plus mic and stand for the officiant! *Package3-Add $200 for projector and stand to display your slideshow photos gobo style etc. via flash drive or dvd on a 75inch screen, floor or wall!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I always was the man who had all the new music before everyone else. I always have had a good ear for great music and know how to feel a crowd to keep them on the dance floor. At the same time, providing good service and taking care of the clients at their event.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Most of my DJ jobs consists of wedding receptions/ceremonies,sweet 16 events, company parties and anniversaries. I also do school dances, birthday parties, graduation parties and other special events. I can DJ any type of event with any type of musical genre. My music library is extensive and I try to cater to everyone's musical taste. With any party that I'm able to do, you can be sure that I will give 100% effort to provide you the best DJ experience possible!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently DJ'ed two twin sisters weddings this year. One in spring and one in the fall. They both told me that I'm part of their family now and they want me to DJ future family events. Their dad told me they couldn't have found a better DJ and that he appreciates the thoughtfulness and willingness to make both of his daughters events successful!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I am someone who is prompt and on time. I give my all to provide the best music for all of your guests and give top notch entertainment. My dance music is hip,fun for all and can last all night. I have always accepted feedback from my clients so I can improve on all aspects on my services. With energizing lights that can fill any room,the experience that I create is visual, dynamic and leaves a positive impression. My setup is neat with a balanced sound that can amplify any venue.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How much planning and preparation goes into providing the playlist. Every song on your playlist has to be heard in its entirety before your day. Every song has to be in the correct order as the client specifies. I also arrive 1 hour and 15 min-1 hour 30 mins before the event to ensure the sound, lights,mics etc. is perfect for the event prior to your guests arriving.
