We would love to work with you!
You’ve heard it a million times: “your wedding day, is one of the most important days of your life;” however, it’s so important to us that we’ve named the company after starting the first day of your lives together: Day One. Straight, gay, purple, or pink, I want to celebrate right along with you and make your night as memorable and flawless as it deserves to be.
The corporate world is my day-to-day livelihood. My 9-5 experience in business-to-business sales has introduced me to some fascinating companies and even more fascinating people. The stuffy/uptight stigma that surrounds the business community couldn’t be further from the truth. Like all events, coordination and entertainment are the core of success in all Day One DJ services.
Proms / School Dances
Constantly staying up-to-date with what’s hot in the music scene (a.k.a. “what the kids are listening to”), is paramount to the success of all of Day One DJ events. While it may make me feel old at my ripe age of 29, the energy quickly slingshots me back to gymnasium dance floors and I need to be slapped back into reality when the lights come back up at the end of the night.
If you don’t know about uplighting, you should. I’ve never found anything that transforms a room nearly as much as uplighting. It turns any ordinary room into an atmosphere of elegance and class.
Fitness Events / Races
Running, cycling, group workout events, and everything in between—music is the best motivation and reward to keep the participants’ adrenaline pumping and the spectators entertained and primed for encouragement. MC and PA system capabilities are also available.
Birthday Parties, Sweet 16, and everything else!
If it’s a party, I’m in. Even if it’s not a party and you’re just looking for an ambient soundscape with some soft mood-lighting, I’m in. If you’re curious, just ask. I’m always open to new experiences, events, and people.
“We had an AMAZING experience with Day One/Joe for our wedding (April 2014). He was a great addition to our reception. He played the right music and packed our dance floor for the majority of the night! We would recommend him to ANYONE needing a fun DJ for their big day! He is very professional, has the right forms to help plan your dance and he knows how to work a crowd!”
Tanya Rooney - Wedding
“Joe was a really great guy and was also awesome to work with for me as the photographer. I’ve rarely seen so many people on the dance floor! If you’re looking for a DJ and you’re in MN/WI, check him out at
Day One DJ!”

“Day One DJ is the absolute best! We had Joe DJ our wedding in Hudson and he did not disappoint. Kept the folks dancing until midnight. We had so many compliments from our guests. Do yourself a favor and book Day One DJ for your next event.”
