t all began when I took my stereo to a house party when I was just 19 years old. I couldn't believe my eyes! People rocked out to the tunes I was playin'. I was hooked! My name is Joe. I'm the owner and creative behind SJ's Disc Jockey.

KIND WORDS on yelp

I continued playing at parties, which led to spinning in local Sacramento nightclubs. Then, weddings began calling. Now that was a whole new thing. Although I was learning my way around a wedding, I was soooooo shy that I just couldn't grab a mic and handle 200 eyeballs staring at me. 
I fought my way past that, and now I simply love the art of storytelling. Nothing fulfills me more than collaborating with a couple, learning their history, understanding their vision, then crafting an evening where they marry & celebrate, and through music and storytelling, we make guests laugh, cry, engage + party in a way that they haven't quite done before.

Music....I really feel that if you help contribute to the soundtrack of the evening, we will be that much more successful. If we encourage guests to request, they will be far more likely to dance. If we create a program which involves and entertains, it'll be a wedding that they've never experienced before.


We never charge for setup, fees are only for performance time.

My thoughts on lighting are....it's not a must, but it sure is nice. Decor wedding lights add pops of color or an entire room transformation or a touch of elegance.

I find that the value in lighting comes when you and your guests enter a space, and that 'wow' factor is irresistable, and when you look at your wedding photos in the future, those layers of color are always present.

Lighting design can be minimal or over-the-top, let's discuss!

ocktail hour. We collaborate on just the right set of tunes to complement the joy in the house.



rand Entrances...we love them!! Most just introduce the wedding party to music. Imagine creatively introducing them to a few choice phrases which will make them blush...and have your guests in stitches. We have amazing ideas to share, you'll see!


e have some pretty cool ways to engage guests during meal service, toasts and dessert. A little creativity + humor go a long way.


icture this...we have your guests gathered around your dancefloor. I then tell a story....about how you both secretly recorded your thoughts about each other, sent them over, and I remixed those thoughts into your first dance. And, you share it with each other, and your guests, for the very first time. It's an amazing moment that we plan for in advance, only if you're into it!


anceparty! We dim the lights, fire up our dancefloor lights and ask your guests to party with you until the very end. We love a fav's list, we love a 'no way' list, and we encourage guests' requests. We know how to throw a party!!

planning is such a collaborative process. we gather a month prior to wedding day, and craft your event around 


We setup super early and provide sound wherever needed.

We play your special ceremony choices and provide lapel microphones.

Cocktail hour music is always provided, as well as dinner music.

Along with a custom crafted soundtrack, we fancy ourselves as pretty darn cool emcees, and love to create a 'community' experience.

I really feel as if the best way to see if we 'fit' is to open up a chat. The next step would be to potentially get together at my Studio, where we can casually share vision, styles, ideas and more.
