From ClientsWhat are people saying about my work?
My wife and I met DJ Joe Costa at a bridal show and immediately we were impressed with his professionalism and his focus on delivering exactly what we wanted. We had met with him on multiple occasions to discuss our plans coordinate his services with our videographer, officiant, and live music, and he did so without issue. Both my wife and i enjoyed his services and how he kept the reception moving. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone. Thanks Joe

DJ Joe Costa is all around wonderful- not only will he keep the dance floor packed, but he is a true professional in every sense of the word. Joe is a terrific listener-which is very hard to find! He takes the time (and is happy to do so) to get to know your taste in music, the kind of energy you want to create at your event, and what your expectations/like/dislikes are. Joe wants to make sure that your event will be a success, and his dedication to ensuring your happiness and satisfaction is truly genuine. It is so refreshing to work with a vendor who clearly LOVES what he does-Joe’s passion and talent comes across effortlessly. No matter what kind of event you are planning- do yourself a favor and reach out to DJ Joe Costa- I guarantee that any expectation you have will be exceeded by him! Thank you for all of your time, attention, and talent, Joe!!!

DJ Joe Costa did a fantastic job for us at our wedding. He worked with us closely to make sure the songs we wanted were played (and the ones we DIDN’T want were not). Joe made sure he knew exactly what was happening when, and even though we had a longer than expected dinner, and the cantor from our wedding Mass wanted to sing a song for us, Joe handled all of this with ease and made it seem like it was all part of the show. We got many compliments on the music – I’ve never seen that many people dance at a wedding, even big ones like ours.

ServicesWhat are our services?
Thank you so much for coming to this portion of the site. It’s always a honor to be even considered to dj a wedding. Every wedding is different for every couple has their own vision on how the day should go. I truly want to cater to each couple and ensure them that they will get what they want.
After confirming myself as your dj for your big day the planning process can start. I will ensure from start to finish that the day will run smooth. I also will work alongside the other vendors hired such as the photographer, videographer, caterer, and event manager.
Everyone likes to have fun and why not at a corporate event. Corporate functions and gatherings are always a good time. I will ensure a great and professional experience as well as mc the event if needed for presentations, slide shows and featured speakers. Companies hire me to bring my skill and experience into their event for emcee work as well as dance music, and I also have extensive experience working with some of the largest companies in the tri state. My experience as DJ enables me to play to a wide variety of age ranges and backgrounds, and get guests involved and on the dance floor.
Creating the perfect, most memorable private party to celebrate your special event involves many months of planning. Whether it is a graduation party, a family reunion, an engagement or anniversary, or a BBQ to celebrate the 4th of July, you certainly want to ensure that everyone will have the best possible time.
One if the best ways to ensure your celebration goes off without any hitches, and to guarantee success, is to hire myself. Djing for well over ten years I can read and gauge any crowd and often times get the crowd involved to ensure everyone has a good time.
Photo Booth / Selfie Station
Looking for a photo booth … this is the Bentley of Photo booths.
This photo booth is top of the line with a open air photo booth that can take photos of as many as 30 guests. With a top of the line camera for clear photos and fast high end quality printer to ensure amazing photos.
With a 32″ monitor as well so each guest can see where they are in the picture to make sure everyone is in position and having fun!
Props are included as well… along with a scrap book or a flash drive for keepsakes for the event.
By definition it’s a light placed or designed to throw illumination upward. This truly can be art because this add on package can truly turn any room into a more elegant and vibrant room. The lighting will be placed around the room placed far enough away from the guests and bridal party.
The color or even colors will be designated by the client or couple. The lighting is all led lighting so it is very bright and low energy.
Different packages include bridal table lighting, full room uplighting or can be purchased per light.
Monogram lighting is a great accent piece in the room to tie together all the facets of the event.
How it works to select a monogram: a list of examples will be given to the couple or client. Then the monogram will be reconfirmed and color will be designated. The monogram will be set in the designated as well. Honest is my policy but sometimes the area that may be designated might not always be best so I will let the couple know in advance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why don’t you list your prices?
Well to be honest every wedding and event is so different that a simple checklist for prices isn’t exactly fair. Each event is taken into consideration to have a fair price.
When should we book our DJ, Photo booth and other services?
Most brides begin to think about booking their entertainment about 1 year in advance for the services they care most about. If the vendor is booked they obviously can’t be at two places at once. As much as I love Superman I’m not that fast.
When should I book Lighting and Uplighting?
Honest it’s no rush but the sooner the better… each lighting package is specific to your event.
Does your DJ package range with times?
Yes!! Each contract the dj will have a start and end time but again that can be worked out. For additional time added on the day of the event that is possible but the dj does need to be paid prior.
Can I request my own music?
For Sure!! It’s your day so we want to ensure you get exactly what you want. The forms given to you during the planning process gives you opportunity to make requests and even supply a do not playlist including genres of music not play.
Do you travel outside of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland Area?
Yes! For sure I have traveled as far as California and Florida but travel will be added per event.
So how do we book?
Once the inquiry is sent in and I’m available and you like what you hear a contract will be sent out. Once the contract and deposit is returned an email confirmation and text confirmation will be sent locking in your date. Then you made Joe happy and I’ll probably do a happy dance.
Will you work with other vendors?
Yes of Course!! On average I perform at 30-40 weddings and several events a year. As the dj my job is to make sure your vision and day runs smoothly. I will communicate via email, or phone to each vendor to make sure the timeline and any other requests are understood.
Method of payment accepted?
DJ Joseph Costa Entertainment Company accepts all major credit cards, Personal Checks, Company Checks, Cash, and Money Orders.
Are you insured?
Yes! We are insured for $1,000,000 per event. Proof of insurance can be presented to your banquet facility if they would like it.
Why do I have to sign a contract?
A contract protects both sides and just makes sure that you’re getting exactly what you’re paying for.
Can we meet with you in person?
Yes that’s not a problem at all. I actually prefer that so then you know who I am and become more comfortable. Then on the day of the event it’s more fun.
How do we finalize the details?
Forms will be sent to you prior and we will organize a face to face meeting, Skype or FaceTime. Then we will go over the timeline, requests, do not requests and any announcements.
Do you charge extra for MC services during my event?
No no no. Mcing comes in any package actually some people say I have a voice like Fergie and Jesus.
Where will you play?
As long as it’s safe I will play.
What kind of equipment do you use?
All equipment used is state of the art in mobile djing sound. Brands used are as follows: Apple, QSC, Numark, Pioneer, Line 6, Chauvet, and American DJ.
What do you wear to events?
I always dress professional so its suit, vest, tie, and dress shoes.
Do you offer a Military Discount?
Yes of Course! I will just need to see an active military id from the bride or groom and 10% discount will be issued!
