"...Joe Pizzio... was incredible from beginning to end. Me and my husband started making couple of long playlists months before the wedding. We gathered all the songs that we really loved and the ones we had good memories with growing up: for dancing, slow dancing, reception, happy hour ... We gave Joe those lists a week before the wedding. He was so great at receiving that huge list.
I am Iranian and mu husband is American so there was a lot of International music there as well. Joe actually owned most of the music I sent him! He has a huge collection of diverse musics. we talked on the phone about what we really didn't want and what we did want and he was so great at listening to all our needs and helping us through.
On the day of wedding, he showed up dressed in a beautiful suit although it was a ver-r-r-y hot day in September. He was absolutely professional. He played everything as it was planned. He had a great sense on seamlessly mixing all these different genres that we have given him. Everyone was on the dance floor having fun. He could feel the energy so well. He coordinated with the caterers and the photographer for every single detail that was needed in the back. We didn't really want a loud DJ and Joe absolutely respected our wish. I would work with him again and again. Thank you so much for the incredible service!
"Knowing you were [the DJ] at [two of my co-workers'] weddings, it isn't a surprise that you hit exactly the right tone and feel for the event last weekend at Bryn Mawr. The surprise to me was that my 10 year old daughter and her friend liked every single song you played, too (her words exactly), even some of the songs I recognized from the 80's. Even our 4-year-old wouldn't stop dancing... thank you for being part of a great campaign launch!"
"Joe was great from the start! He was genuinely interested to learn what kind of music we wanted played and had great questions for us. It helped us feel comfortable that he was on top of things the whole time.
I wasn't originally even sure how I was going to find a DJ, but glad I found PZO productions because it was really easy to talk with Joe about the details and what we should expect for our night. He was honestly a huge help at the event from getting there early and even lending his hand with a few other things that came up. His sound equipment is top notch (something people don't always think about but I wanted to make sure because I recently been to a few friends weddings and their DJ's sound system wasn't the best)
Well I honestly need to just say that the night was great, everyone danced their butts off, and I had multiple people tell me how great they thought the DJ was. Thanks, Joe!"
"Joe Pizzio of PZO productions was AMAZING to work with. He is seriously one of the nicest and most organized guys and he made our wedding so much fun and stress-free! My husband and I had a pretty non-traditional wedding and we also gave Joe a list of a ton of songs we wanted him to play. He was so cool about both aspects. From the get-go he was laid back and open to our ideas and I ended up spending a lot of time just chatting with him about music. This man is a bottomless well of musical knowledge! He was super friendly with everyone at our wedding and so many of our guests were complimenting him and asking us where we found him. I HIGHLY recommend Joe. I know my husband and I will continue to use him for all of our DJ needs in the future. He made our wedding so memorable and fun. He's also super affordable and helped me out with organizing some of the events of the night. Honestly, if you're looking for a DJ look no further. Joe Pizzio (PZO Productions) is the way to go!"
"We had Joe as the DJ for our wedding. We met with him beforehand to go over the details for the evening and the floor plan of the building. He was very easy to work with. He had no issue shortening some of the songs that we had picked. He checked in with me throughout the night to keep moving through the timeline that I had set out for the evening. When I requested certain songs he played them ASAP. We asked for certain songs and artists to not be played, and he did not play them... He was not overpowering like most DJs I looked at...".
"If you are looking for a great DJ for your next event, look no further.
Joe DJ’d my wedding reception and he was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. He made sure everything ran smoothly and kept the dancefloor packed. He was professional and fun on the mic without being cheesy or overbearing.
My husband and I have had Joe DJ numerous types of parties since. He is professional, creative, very easy to reach, relaxed, fun, and amazing at reading what the crowd wants to hear. He dresses for the occasion and knows how to conduct himself around all ages, including kids because he is also a dad. Whenever we have had a change or a delay in the schedule, Joe has worked with me and never got frazzled.
Besides his incredible talent and wide knowledge of music, both new and old, he is also a great problem solver and can deal with all sorts of personalities. I say this because some of my guests can be painful to please, but, in my experience, EVERYBODY loves Joe.
Joe remains our secret weapon for a successful and memorable party. I hope you decide to use him because he is a steal in our opinion. As the star rating suggests, Joe Pizzio is as good as it gets and then some..."
“I’ve worked with Joe since 2008, while at the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country, Hyatt Vineyard Creek, and Auberge Resorts Calistoga Ranch. I do not hesitate to recommend him to my new clientele here at the Harvest Inn. He has the rare ability to program a variety of music genres seamlessly. I’ve contracted him for numerous weddings, New Year’s Eve Parties, and even an all-employee Hotel Appreciation Party. He has consistently exceeded my expectations and been extremely reliable. He is creative, outgoing and conducts himself in a professional manner, He always, without fail, gives 100% of himself to every booking.”
"Joe was wonderful! Upon request, he gave us suggestions for specific songs, picked types of music for the whole evening based off a couple suggestions, was really easy to touch base with prior to our wedding. The best part, though, was that Joe made the reception run very smoothly, as far as timing of speeches, etc and checking in with us (bride and groom) regarding flow of the evening. We would ask Joe to be our DJ again in a heartbeat!"
Christine & Tom
"My wife and I were very thankful and amazed by job he did. He went above and beyond. We are thankful for his professionalism and how personable he was through the whole process and event."
Carl (& Lisa)
"Joe was so easy to work with before the wedding. I gave him the most absurd and random list of songs that my now-husband and I might like to hear, and somehow he was able to figure out our taste from that. He really seemed to get us and what kind of songs we wanted to hear throughout different parts of the day. Everyone had an amazing time and said how great the music was, and we asked him to stay later than expected so we could keep dancing. Loved him and totally recommend him!"
Sarah & Andrew
"Thank you for agreeing to DJ our wedding! It was a pleasure collaborating with you and we appreciate the diversity and creativity you bring to your craft! We hope you had as much fun as we did!"
Christine & Justin
“When my husband-to-be and I were looking into music for our wedding, we were pretty settled on just using an iPod and basic PA system. Some family members persuaded us to check out DJ options, and we're glad that we did -- it was one of the best wedding choices we made. From the start, Joe was a fantastic fit -- he was extremely friendly, very easy to communicate with and was very laid back -- exactly what we were looking for.
Before the wedding, we filled out a worksheet that detailed song requests for first dances, any special requests, and overall what kind of music we would like throughout the reception. We also sent Joe a timeline of our entire wedding day and chatted with him for 15 minutes about a week before the big day.
On the wedding day, Joe came early to set up before our ceremony. We used his sound system for the ceremony itself and he took care of the processional and recessional music. Immediately following the wedding, he played the cocktail hour and the reception, mixing our requests, guest requests and some of his own choices perfectly. As requested, he was fairly quiet, just announcing events throughout the night such as the beginning of dinner and the cake cutting
What I loved most about having Joe as our DJ (aside from the great music!) was how well he communicated with us throughout the evening. We had a very DIY wedding and Joe took charge of the timeline, making sure that things like special dances, toasts and cutting the cake happened on time. We pushed a few things back due to the flow of the day, and Joe accommodated everything seamlessly. He also made sure to keep our photographer in the loop on our timeline. Additionally, Joe would periodically check in with us about songs that guests requested and if we'd like to hear them or not.
I truly did not realize the value in having a DJ at our event until we met Joe. He made our wedding day exponentially better and easier and I would absolutely recommend him.”

“Joe was wonderful. His profession manner and yet great sense of humor (and flexibility as we had rain mid-way through our ceremony) helped to make the day so special. He was very pleasant to folks, as he interacted with many (“what song was that?”… That kind of thing), and was completely enthusiastic and sweet when making announcements. I highly recommend him.”
"I just wanted to let you know -- Joe did an amazingly fantastic job! He was 'tuned in' to all 120 people, the atmosphere we wanted to create and everyone raved about him. The site, the food, the weather, the music was all perfect -- BRAVO!”
“...Hiring Joe as my DJ was a big part of what made my wedding day so special. Everyone had a blast. To this day, guests still remind me how much fun they had at the reception. Joe Pizzio comes with my highest recommendation...” (see more)
