Cellist by day and DJ by Night
Not your average everyday cellist! With some things new and some things old, there's enjoyment for everyone! Any genre for any occasion, you name it and I can play it. Acoustic is perfect for most occasions and technology such as amps and effect pedals can offer a variety that will make your wedding or any event that much more special.
Want something completely new? I also arrange music and write original compositions!
As for my DJ and KJ services, I offer you and your guest premium entertainment in all genres of music. Unlike some, I spin with others in mind meaning that I play music based on what the crowd wants. Fully equipt and adaptable!
Joe’L did an amazing job working with us with the music and making our special day go smoothly. We loved his music and appreciate his professionalism throughout the entire process!

Thank you so much for the review! I had a great time. The atmosphere was so fitting and it was an absolute pleasure to be able to work with you and entertain your guests.
Joe'l was professional, prepared and friendly. It was great working with Joe'l!
Joe'L was absolutely amazing to work with!! He is so very musically talented and knowledgeable. Joe'L worked with us based on our budget and even met us at a local park where he played several pieces for us to choose from. He was able to play anything I requested for my big day. He exceeded our expectations. Though he made my guests cry (wink), he alone, truly made my wedding ceremony a dream come true. He plays beautifully and with such enthusiasm. I humbly recommend Joe'l for any event!!

In search of a professional cellist?
You can enjoy the sweet acoustic sounds of classical cello music, or have fun listing to a variety of new age selections. Cello only not enough? Ask about additional options for backing tracks , effects and amplification, and professional accompanists!
Do you need a DJ/KJ for your event or business?
Look forward to a musician with the capability to adapt and rock any event for any occasion. Expect a constant supply of great music, seamless mixing, and quality entertainment.
My Karaoke selection is amongst the best in the industry as it is constantly updated with the latest and greatest karaoke songs and hits.
The likelihood of any DJ having more music selections than I is slim. All of my music is legally acquired and downloaded.
I am eager to be of any assistance so feel free to contact me at any time with any questions you may have.
Over Eight years and counting, the cello has been my secondary voice. There's so much to say so, if you'd like to know me better, here's a bit about myself.
Born on January 20th, 1997, in Bronx NY I was raised by a single father doing his very best make it on his own. I spent my earlier years traveling with my father to various places, going back and forth between different states until eventually settling down in Jacksonville, NC to care for my late grandfather. Consequently, I had the opportunity to meet various musical artist, and thanks to our travels, I have been exposed to all sorts of musical culture.
Ever since my years as a young child, perhaps since kindergarten, I have always been interested in music. Some of my lasting music-related memories as a child were of me improvising simple melodies on my father's digital piano as he, along with my grandparents, watched. Be it a recorder, keyboard, or drums, anything that made a musical sound I just had to have my hands on it. Perhaps the highlight of my day as an elementary school student was music class.
My original dream as a young child was to become a robot scientist. Music at the time was more of a hobby, something that was on the back burner when in reality, it has been a profound constant in my life. With the majority of my relatives having some sort of musical ability, one could say that music is in my blood.
After starting on the violin in the sixth grade, I later switched to the cello the next school year. Since then, the cello has been my number one instrument.
In the years following, I have learned to use my musical expertise in the exciting field of DJing for events and even clubs!
With my love for music never waning, my main goal in life is to successfully share the love of the arts with as many people as possible and expand their minds to new and beautiful experiences.
Additional Booking Notes
Almost anywhere with enough room for my instrument and small setup is suitable. If it is outdoors, please be aware of weather conditions as cellos are very fragile instruments. Lighting and sound are usually of no real issue for I come prepared with my own stand light and medium-sized amplifier when requested. For best sound, I would personally suggest areas with low external noise and venues with good reverberation and acoustic treatment/design.
Please be sure that there is room for equipment placement such as a computer, mixer, controllers and other devices, speakers, and (if needed,) lighting. I can perform with my own and in-house sound systems. I am always equipped with extra cords and adapters, so most in-house systems will do.
