Favorite DJing Experience: When the bride and her dad dance for the first time, and it’s a really great song, I get a little emotional. I’m not saying I cry or anything, but my allergies seem to flare up.
I cannot say enough great things about Joe Bunn! We had Joe Bunn the owner DJ our wedding on June 28, 2014 at The Cotton Room in Durham, NC and it was totally worth the extra bit of money to have Joe. He has a fun and energetic personality and was the perfect MC for our wedding reception! He ensured that we stayed on time with everything and was in coordination with our wedding planner at The Cotton Room. Working with Joe was easy from the start. I had compiled a lengthy list of music I wanted played by category – we reviewed and discussed it several times to make sure he was on the same page and I felt confident he would stick to my list when he could and deviate if the crowd wasn’t into it. I loved that he was able to read the crowd and play music to the crowd to ensure everyone was on the dance floor… and they were! Our wedding was a huge party where everyone was dancing the whole time (including my husband and me!). Joe also religiously did not play any song on the do not play list, which I was very particular about. I can’t say enough great things about Joe! And especially if you’re an out of town bride like me and don’t know how to find a DJ, look no further – hire Joe Bunn!- Elizabeth King, Wedding - June 28th, 2014
Joe, Thank you so very much for all of your enthusiasm and professionalism at both the ceremony (for staying and covering the audio mix) and for the reception! Wow--what a fun night! I've never seen a dance floor packed from start to finish--and then not wanting to finish even with an extra hour added. Thank you!! Everyone had a blast! It was a pleasure working with you!
Joe was not good... he was OUTSTANDING. From everything we had heard, we knew he was awesome, but we didn't realize that we were truly getting the best of the best. He helped our reception run smoothly and created the perfect atmospheres for a classy, elegant dinner and then a super fun dance party. During the reception, the Flower Girl and Ring Bearer surprised us by coming down the stairs wearing a Flower Girl jersey and a Ring Bearer jersey; they were holding jerseys for us, too! When they started down the stairs holding our jerseys (Mack's Senior UNC football jersey and a Bride jersey for me), Joe immediately, without any direction, played the UNC fight song! What a memorable moment! From start to finish, his expertise and passion for his art made our reception the best of the best and a night that we will never forget. Joe, we can't thank you enough! :-)
Thank you so much for helping make my wedding day incredible. The reception was an absolute blast and our friends are still telling us about how much fun they had. The whole day was perfect and you are part of the reason why. I am forever grateful!
We use Joe Bunn whenever possible for events. He is the best in the area, and never disappoints
Hi Joe, We just wanted to thank you again for being such an awesome DJ. You were amazing. Everything was perfect. The first dance, the cha cha slide, the tango, right through to the end. You really got the dance floor going, and people were having a lot of fun dancing - they danced a lot! They loved the mix of tunes. We are so glad that you personally were available to help us celebrate. And it seemed like you were having fun too!! Thanks so much!
We had Joe as the DJ at our wedding reception. He was great at feeling out the crowd, as we had a big mix of age groups. He played a perfect mix and had everyone dancing all night! He had people out on the dance floor that we never imagined would dance. Our family and friends have told us over and over how wonderful our DJ was, and we most definitely agree!
Dear Joe, Just wanted to send a special note to thank you for helping us make our wedding reception so amazing. We had the best time and so did our friends and family. You went above and beyond to work with us in creating a seamless celebration. We truly appreciate everything you did and in such a professional manner. All the best in 2014!
Dear Joe, We cannot tell you how thankful we are to you for the way you seamlessly provided quality DJ expertise to our day! You have been a joy to work with and we were so touched by the care with which you approached the moments that were so dear to us (such as the daddy/daughter dance and my parent's first dance). The day felt so smooth and we truly feel we landed the "Dream Team" with you and our other vendors! Thank you again for blessing us by taking on our wedding day. We are thankful to know you and pray you are exceedingly blessed this fall season with all things cozy and wonderful!
Joe Bunn was absolutely fantastic! Many of our guests remarked that he was one of the best DJs they have ever heard. He was a complete professional to work with. Great song list, great reception, what more could you ask for. I'd hire him again or recommend him and his company to friends in a heartbeat!
Dear Joe, Thank you so much for DJing our wedding on October 19! We had the time of our lives, and will always remember how wonderful our wedding day was. The music you played was perfect and had everyone dancing all night. You had people out on the dance floor that we never imagined would dance! Our family and friends have told us over and over how wonderful our DJ was, and we most definitely agree! Thank you for everything!
Absolutely fabulous!!! DJ Joe Bunn is first-class all the way, a true professional! We had a small second wedding with the reception during the afternoon at our home. The fact it was the middle of the afternoon and with a number of small children I had a feeling music was going to be a challenge....I had NOTHING to worry about.....Joe Bunn's experience and professionalism created the PERFECT atmosphere. He knew EXACTLY what to do when to create a fun and special atmosphere. I would recommend his DJ services to anyone!!!!- Suzanne Mintz, Wedding - September 28th, 2013
John and I thank you for your effort to make Cait and Miller's wedding reception so much fun. As we could see from the enthusiasm on the dance floor, your selection of music was perfect. You set the mood so well, from the introduction of the bridal party, all the way through to the last dance. It was a pleasure working with you. We will highly recommend you to all of our friends and family who are looking for a DJ in the future.
Joe Bunn was beyond awesome! He had everyone in our reception on the dance floor and dancing the whole night. That was all we wanted for our reception and it turned out better then we could have asked for and if we did it over again I wouldn't change one thing! He played great songs and would highly recommend him to any bride or person looking for a DJ for their event! Wish we could have another reception next weekend!
I always thought I would have a band at my wedding. When it came down to planning, for various reasons we decided to go DJ. I couldn't help but be a little nervous. That being said: Joe was a superstar!! He was an absolute delight to work with and ensured that everything went exceptionally smooth! I would trust any of his DJ's to bring the house down, just like he did at our reception! If there was a moment when people started to mozy off the dance floor, he would immediately fade the song out and drop a hot beat pulling everyone back, and then some! He had 10 year olds out there dancing with 75 year olds! He will work with you to create whatever vibe you want throughout the night! The hardest part was pulling the plug! We had an outdoor reception, so due to sound ordinances, he had to shut it down at 11 pm. Otherwise we would have happily kidnapped him for the rest of the night! Joe Bunn DJ Company, DO IT.
Joe was amazing to work with and really kept the party going and our wedding was truly amazing because of such a fabulous party!
- Rachel-Rose and KJ, Wedding - May 4th, 2013KJ and I would like to thank you for doing a superb job DJing our wedding! We and our guests had a great time and the dance floor always had people on it to the very last song! We didn't want the night to end! We also appreciate the "Devil in a Blue Dress" Song at Carolina :) It was a pleasure working with you!
So happy with Joe! We almost didn't book a DJ at all and I'm so glad that we decided to book him for our wedding reception! Our night was perfect... We will definitely post positive reviews elsewhere!- Amanda Fitzgerald, Wedding - November 24th, 2012
Everything was so great! I can't say how many people were coming up to me and dating how great the music was and how he played everything! Thanks Joe, we had a wonderful night!!- Danielle Harvey, Wedding - November 11th, 2012

Joe was a true professional from the first time we met him through the wedding day. He really set the tone for our reception and we had the place rocking all night long. The song selector oh his website was so helpful on my part when trying to plan songs of the evening and he totally delivered! Every time another of "my" songs came on, I thought "I chose that!" His transitions were flawless! Book Joe Bunn!!! You will not be sorry!- Victoria Ewing, Wedding - October 14th, 2012
I loved the ceremony and reception sounds and music. It was perfect.- Ashley Carpenter, Wedding - September 8th, 2012
I cant thank you enough! Outstanding!!- Courtney St. Hilaire, Wedding - August 11th, 2012
