Joe was FANTASTIC!!! ! He was a DJ, Wedding Planner/Coordinator and Friend all rolled up into one!

He listened to what I wanted and needed for my wedding and was very resourceful when I had questions, and very helpful and accommodating when I wasn't sure about certain things.

Joe definitely came through for me when last minute schedule changes came up during the wedding and banquet. He just went with the changes, no problem! I received many compliments on the wonderful music that Joe played during my wedding and banquet. He is truly and asset to the entertainment industry. I would absolutely recommend him to any of my friends for their weddings or parties.

Dear Joe

We have been to several weddings since out own in July and cannot believe the difference in the other DJ's compared to you. You were excellent! People are still talking about the awesome job you did. Unbelievably, I have had a few couples say that because of you, they enjoyed our wedding more than their own.

Chris & Brenda Lucaratti

We had a great time!! You did a great job especially with a few of my relatives that can get a little out of hand....anytime you want a referral just let us know. I've attached our favorite picture of when you were first introducing us into the tent.

We just wanted to tell you how amazing of a time we had at the wedding with you at the Helm . Thank you so much for everything. We couldn't have imagined it any different and only wish we could've spent more time .

You're the Best!

Carly & Brian Eppley

Dear Joe

You did an outstanding job at our wedding reception. You were personable and professional throughout the event, but even well before the actual day. You were always willing to answer the many questions of a nervous bride. We had selected some special songs for you to play, but then you used your expertise to add to the list, thoroughly entertaining our guests. We Would highly recommend you to anyone.

We had a fantastic time at the wedding, as did all of the guests. Many of them mentioned that the music was well selected and that you were the best DJ that they have heard at a wedding. We can't thank you enough for your flexibility before the event, your selection of music and ability to maintain the energy during the event, and your enthusiasm throughout. You helped make the wedding fun and memorable! It was a pleasure having you as our DJ. We would be happy to serve as a reference to any future clients. All the best for the future,

Justin and Claire

DJ Joe Pet was exceptional. I was hands down his pickiest, most high maintenance client ever. I event plan for work and I was insane with Wedding fever and on a very tight budget. I scrutinized every vendor for quality and price. Joe was fantastic. We received several compliments on how well he sang during our cocktail hour and he did a great job keeping our dance floor packed. I would recommend Joe to anyone and I have. I was a tough client and I was more than pleased.

Good Morning Joe

Tony and I would like to thank you for everything. The music was wonderful and you have a great voice. We loved everything you played. The entire night was just perfect even with the smoke detectors going off -while they cooked- everyone just laughed it off and it did not interrupt the flow of things at all. We had a great crowd- and they loved you -the dance floor stayed pretty busy most of the night. Your professionalism and friendly smile made everyone relax and have a great time.

Just one phone call and everything was perfect! While I was busy tending to guests and having a good time at our summer employee outing, you had arrived promptly with everything you needed, coordinated with the club staff, set up your equipment and were ready to go to work. You were able to handle every request, kept the pace moving and added appropriate humor to the evening. You really know how to do a great job and make it easy for the event planner! See you next year, Joe!

Coldwell Banker, Company Outing

Joe provided wonderful entertainment for our company Barbeque / Party. Due to some bad weather, we were forced to bring the party to our offices indoors. Joe saved the day, made the party great fun and even got some of our employees to sing karaoke. I will definitely hire Joe again for our next function and my wedding next year.

Suffolk Construction, Company Barbeque

If you ever need a top notch entertainer, then Joe is your man. He was amazing with the guests and the music. It was as if he worked full time for us. I highly recommend him.

Travelers, Holiday Party

We use many DJ's on our staff, but Joe is by far the best. Whether he is performing a Bar Mitzvah, Wedding or for a corporation, he is always right on and professional.

I am writing today to express my thanks for a job well done. The fond memory we have of Amanda's Bat Mitzvah party is in great part due to the entertainment you provided on her special day.

Your prompt attention to detail, friendly and professional manner and eagerness to please were especially noted. Your entertaining ability, song selection and interacting with the kids was great, and we would highly recommend you to anyone looking for quality entertainment.

We are planning on having a major house warming party sometime in the fall and would love for you to be there in the capacity of both entertainer and guest.

Again, thanks for helping to make our day so great. Looking forward to speaking with you soon.


Peter & Amanda Hackle

Dear Joe and A Beat Away Entertainment,

I want to thank you again for the terrific job you did, DJ-ing my daughters Bat-Mitzvah. Not only did the children enjoy the music and games but the adults did, as well. My favorite was the Mummy Wrap. What a riot and what a mess! Half the fun was knowing I didn't have to clean it up.

The kids, of course, went bananas for the karaoke and wasn't there a few impressive voices in the house? Then again, anything sounds better than 30 shrieking 13 year-old girls! The good news is you've got 30 new fans.

Please feel free to add me to your recommendation list.


Peter Levine

Dear Joe,

Preparing the itinerary for Jacobs Bar Mitzvah was easy. He's an easy kid. All he really asked for was to make sure the DJ would play his favorite music (not mine).

I knew it was going to be an emotional day for me (I'm a mush), so it was important to know I had a competent "team" to pull it all together. You took a lot of the stress off of me, largely due to your take charge - don't worry be happy attitude. Thank you, thank you, and thank you. You're a terrific entertainer and a wonderful DJ and I have no problem recommending you to everyone.

Warmest Regards,

Sue Frankel

P.S. Jacob said his friends loved the music!

Dear Joe

Just wanted to send a letter of thanks to you for the wonderful job you did at my mother's 70tth birthday party. From the moment I met you until the time of the event you were nothing but professional.

I have never seen so many people dancing at one time and not wanting to stop as I did that night. The compliments were plenty on your work and on a job well done."

Dear Joe

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding job you did at my son's graduation Party. You were a fantastic DJ, and did a great Job at pleasing all of the age groups that attended the party.

I was nervous not being familiar with your work, but so grateful you were the person available for the party. It is sometimes difficult when you are dealing with teenagers to find a happy medium; you did just that and then some.

Also, I appreciate your cooperation in moving indoors due to the weather and setting up in the ballroom at the World Trade Center. It worked out perfectly, and the sound system was great for the room.

I hope to work with you in the future and I will certainly recommend you to all my friends. It was a pleasure working with you; your dependability, professionalism and personality are to be admired.


Kathy Drew

"Joe you were a delight and very professional! You were very easy going and pleasant plus you played all of our requests. A real terrific job!"

Andrea Hall- Phinney
(Brookline High 20th Reunion)

Joe Petruzzelli was the Disc Jockey at my mother in laws 80th surprise birthday party in September of this year. He was there on time and set up all his equipment right away. He played the Happy Birthday song as she was entering and we all yelled surprise and it was perfect. This was one of his many good ideas.

He played a variety of music as we requested. He had props that we used for different dances etc. He encouraged everyone to join in at different times, which helped a great deal.

I don't even remember him taking a break, it seemed like he was always at his station.

I would definitely use his services in the future. We were all very satisfied with his work and his professionalism.


Janice L. Mello
(Surprise 80th Birthday Party)

Joe was a great addition to a wonderful celebration. We had guests from around the world and he handled it like a pro and kept them dancing.

I'll see you in 4 years!
