How does your service stand out?

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, clarity,ambiance, room acoustics, uplighting and effect lighting. 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 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 proving the best service possible!

    D.J Joe Smooth did an AMAZING job with our formal event for the UofL Medical and Dental Students at Glassworks. There wasn't a minute that the dance floor wasn't full of people having a great time. Joe played all the requests and kept the party going the whole night. I would HIGHLY recommend him for any event!

    Holly,
    This definitely was a highlight event of 2016! I had students asking me will I DJ the next event because of the great time they had! A couple even asked me if I was available to DJ their wedding next year because they were so impressed! I believe there wasn't 1 person who didn't fully enjoy themselves! Thank you Holly and I definitely look forward working with you on the next college event!

    Kate,
    Best school event I ever DJ'ed! From start to finish, this was an awesome event! I saw tweets on the schools twitter account about how great the music and lights were in the gym! All requests were fulfilled and the floor stayed packed! I look forward to the next event and I'm sure they'll request me to DJ again! :)

    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!

    Thank you for a well earned awesome review! Your ceremony and reception both were one the best of 2015! Your dad was even going to pay me for an extra hour due to great time everyone was having! All of the events went extremely well and your event flowed perfectly! Thank you again for everything and I wish you a future filled with happiness! :)

    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!

    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! I'm accustomed to agendas not going as planned because things unexpected can happen. That what makes it so unique and memorable! Thank you for everything and I was honored and very proud to DJ your event! :)

    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!!!

    Patricia,
    Working with you on this event was incredible! Not only was your ceremony outside, but the reception was indoor. I pre-setup my lights inside in order to speed up the transition. Everyone had a blast and told me how much they "loved" the music! 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!

    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

    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.

    Joe is an amazing DJ!! He kept the wedding rolling and all our guests dancing! Not only was he there for the wedding, but he also made an additional trip to the rehersal dinner and didn't charge us any extra! I heard many guests say how great our DJ was. THANK YOU SO MUCH, JOE!!

    this guy is AWESOME. We booked him for my wedding, and through all of the stress of preparing he understood and made this an easy experience. He was easy to get a hold of and quick to respond. 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!

    Yes this event was another highlight this year. I was so honored to be a part of it. From start to finish this was an awesome event. Your grandmother was bound to a wheelchair. I played YMCA for her so she could move her arms with the rest of the guests.She later thanked me for playing it so she could dance with her granddaughter at her wedding! I later got teary eyed! :) What a great feeling to have done that and to make her and everyone else happy! Thanks again and blessings to your wonderful family! Joe

    Joe was amazing!! I couldn't have asked for anything better. Everyone at the wedding is still talking about the music and dj. Joe kept the music going all night!!! I've been to so many weddings where no one dances but with Joe everyone was up and danced all night. He even gives you a cd of your wedding music and we enjoyed listenig to it during our drive to honeymoon. A cousin said when she gets married she already knows Joe will be her dj. He was organized, professional, and a true delight!! Thanks Joe for making my wedding everything I could have hoped for and so much more!!!!

    Joe was the D.J. at my wedding last weekend and he was awesome! He was super helpful through out the entire process; he was right on time and his setup was very professional.!! I have to say my favorite part of the evening was when he played the electric slide--he actually danced w/us for a minute as did the bartender!! That made for a wonderful experience for me and my guests. I would highly recommend Joe Smooth!!! =)

    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

    Yes it was a very memorable occasion. Everyone stayed impressed with the music selection. As far as the dollar dance mishap, I terribly regret that. 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!

    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!!

    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!

He was really great to work with and got back to me in a timely manner with all my questions while setting up my event. He was very friendly, professional, and he did a great job!

    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!!

    Joe provided the music for an event at our college. 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.

    Thank you Pam for your hospitality and kindness. Your planning along with great weather and a good turnout made this a very successful and memorable event. It was awesome watching the faculty dance to the electric slide. I heard the University's President was even letting off steam on the dancefloor! All around, we've could'nt have organized a better event for your incoming freshmen. I look forward to coming back on campus for another awesome college party and collaborating with you!

    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.

    It was a great turnout and I tried to play all genres of music to keep everyone happy. The people danced outside to the awesome light show and my lights and the clear balanced sound lit up the night perfectly. The dance,country and rock music fit just right with the different age group attendees. Many people told me it was a successful event and they would like to use me again. Thank you Robert for having such a great outdoor event on a great night. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

    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?

    Stephanie,
    It was a hopping party! I had a great time and the lights were perfect for your venue.I don't know how the cd I made for your daughter did'nt work. It was the same disc that I used throughout the party. I'll be happy to make you another one and I greatly apologize for that mishap. Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

    We had Joe DJ an Elementary School Festival/Carnival for us. He supplied all the equipment and age appropriate music. He arrived way ahead of time to make sure all the equipment was set up & running properly for the event. Having him there gave the event such a fun party atmosphere! We threw a lot of crazy announcements at him during the night and he handled all of them smoothly and with a laugh when we needed it! He interacted with the kids well too. We are already talking about getting him back for a couple more events this year.

    Everything went very smoothly. THe DJ was on time and started the music as planned. He also had lights that went with the beat of the music- AMAZING! This was for my 14yr old daughter and he played music that was PG but still popular. DJ Joe Smooth even played music to introduce my daughter as she arrived to the party. My daughter and her 40 friends really enjoyed themselves - I would definitely book DJ Joe Smooth again!!

    It was a great teen party. The kids enjoyed themselves and danced to the music. I played every song the birthday girl had listed on her special music list. The mother who hired me was very professional and had a intenary of all the events that were to be done.This made the night even better because I actually had about 10 minute break.Once the music started back up after the games, the floor was repacked and they danced until their parents came to pick them up.Thanks again Kari for the kind words and blessings to your family.

    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.

    Joe was timely and professional. I would recommend his services to anyone hosting a formal event.

  • 5/5 stars Event DJ Verified Review

    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!

Question and answer

Q. What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

A. 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 wedding agenda document and the sign the contracts. At the event, prior to introducing the wedding party, I 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.

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
