Joe Carson is a musician and a DJ! Joe has performed over 1000 events and over 500 weddings with over 15 years experience entertaining crowds in Boston and New England. Joe is a founder of an award winning, Best of Boston wedding band and has extensive experience providing music for events. Joe probably knows your venue and event planner already!
Joe provides music for weddings and events from beginning to the end! He is able to provide instrumental acoustic ceremonies with a wireless, handheld microphone and a sound system for the officiant. He can also do an upbeat, acoustic cocktail hour and a DJ reception with a full, professional sound system and remote controlled stage lighting.
Joe differs himself from other DJs by providing some live music to the event. Joe plays acoustic versions of the first dance songs that really draw people in to that moment and he can get a singalong going in the middle of a DJ set that will have everyone jumping up and down and singing along. He knows thousands of songs and can customize the music for the whole event to fit the client. Joe has put together playlists from the 20s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, Disco, Motown, Funk, R&B, Hip Hop, to Todays hits. Joe has even created very specialized indie and electronic playlists for clients that wanted something truly unique. If you want a live Bruce Springsteen cocktail hour with a big dance party based around Bruce Springsteen requests Joe has done that! Joe really knows the music and can read the crowd.
Joe is the Emcee for a Best of Boston wedding band and has put together very client specific introductions. Joe will pick and mark the right part of the songs for your introductions and can deliver all the nicknames and last minute changes (like when the ring bearer and flower girl decide they don't want to be introduced). Joe had the pleasure of introducing Rene Rancourt (Singer of the National Anthem for the Boston Bruins) to a wedding and followed the script and music perfectly. At the end Rene turned and said, "You should be my DJ!"
Joe's vast experience on events allows him to work with the other vendors to stay on the itinerary schedule so the client can relax and have the great time that they planned. Weddings can go by pretty quick and the vendors have to work together! Joe will make sure the other vendors are ready for special dances and toasts so no photo is missed and the catering team can work around the special moments. Joe has acted as a day of coordinator on events as well.
Joe would like to be your wedding professional! Joe has past clients that will show up to his residencies and he will play their favorite requested songs when they come in. Joe's client base comes from direct referrals and showcases more than from online marketing. Feel free to contact Joe to have a phone or email consultation and then a showcase in Boston!
