Here’s what people are saying about Pianist / DJ Joe Bongiorno…

Our DJ, Joe Bongiorno was A+ FABULOUS!! He was so great to work with and really made the reception run smoothly. He really focuses on the bride and groom and does not try to be the center of attention. He did the sound for our outdoor ceremony too and the levels were great, with all the guests able to hear everything. He did just what we asked and I am SO glad we chose him. He’s very professional, accommodating, responsive and personable.

Joe, Tony and I haven’t shut up about how awesome you were.  We couldn’t have had a better person to do the job!  Since we are the first of our friends to get married, as they all get ready to get hitched we will of course strongly recommend your services.

Joe, What a party you threw! Thank you so much for everything. The piano was beautiful & the dance playlist was amazing. I was so pleased that people were shaken’ it up til the end. Thank you for all the work you put into making our wedding so fun & memorable!
Sarah & Kris
Thanks so much for the fabulous time last weekend.  Couldn’t have been better!  We got so many compliments on the great party, of which you were instrumental in keeping it very much alive until late in the evening (or early morning?). It was great to see so much energy on the dance floor! Thanks again!
Sue and Roger Bialous
Thanks for doing such a wonderful job!  Our wedding and reception were perfect thanks to all the wonderful people (including yourself) who worked so hard to help.  Best wishes and we will pass your name on to any of our friends needing services!
Amy & Kevin Lee
Joe, both Kim and I thought you were wonderful.  You really made our reception!  Kim also ordered two of your cd’s for my 40th birthday.  Time goes by so fast, I don’t even really remember that much of the wedding and/or reception.  I wish you the best of whatever you hope for and I will drop your name to my friends.  Who knows, maybe you can do our 10th anniversary?
Tom & Kim Pilchuck
Thank you so much for being such a wonderful vendor to work with! Everyone was very complimentary of your piano and DJ music you played. They loved the variety of genres of music.  Thank you for being so awesome and making the reception a real fun and memorable event!!!!

Joe, We truly appreciate all that you did for us, we could not have asked for better music! So many guests told me how much they liked the music. Thank you so much for everything, we had a magical night!
Chris Buchmeier
Joe, Thanks again for the wonderful music and your professional approach. We were so happy with it, we even mentioned it a couple times during the day! I will be heartily recommending you, and playing your piano CD on my work computer where lots of people will hear it!

Thank you so much for making last night so amazing for us!  It seriously was such an amazing day and everything went so smoothly and I appreciate your part in that.  I got all sorts of compliments on your mc’ing and the music……and I know most of the guests could’ve kept dancing all night!

I totally recommend PianoJoe! He’s VERY nice and reliable and does exactly what you want him to do! We also had him play his original works on the piano during dinner and at one point I thought, “Oh, this sounds pretty… OMG it’s Joe on the piano!!”
Maegan Both
Another rave for Joe! He played his original piano during our ceremony and DJ’d the reception. Almost everyone danced all night! I gave Joe very little direction; we picked out our recessional song, first dance, father/daughter-mother/son, and a song for my son and I to dance to, and I left the rest up to Joe. Completely professional, easy to work with, and very sweet. Worth every penny.
Kathy Nibler
Joe, You play beautiful piano music, we received many compliments from people. It was very kind of you to let the kids take to your keyboard (under the headphones) as well…..they loved that. Not to mention to let Wades aunt and grandfather perform for everyone, that was something to remember. Best of luck to you and your upcoming tours!! Take care and who knows maybe we will run into each other again some day.
Shannon & Wade
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUCH AN AMAZING NIGHT! Everything was perfect! I got so many compliments on your piano playing! Everyone thought it was beautiful, especially ‘Amazing Grace’ during the candlelight ceremony! Thanks again Joe, It was GREAT working with you!

Joe played piano music for our ceremony and was the D.J. for the reception. The piano music he played while guests were being seated sounded beautiful along with all of the processional and recessional songs. Joe is super professional and not at all cheesy like some other D.J.’s are. He came highly recommended from many other Seattle Knotties and my wedding coordinator told me that he is one of only a few D.J.’s she will actually recommend to brides! He is completely accommodating to any requests you may have and has a huge song list for you to choose from! For things like the bouquet and garter toss and the cake cutting, I did not have anything specific picked out, but I trusted his judgement to choose appropriate songs and he did!
Jennifer Calkins
Joe is absolutely fabulous! Very fun, professional, easy going, on top of it, and one of the best prices in town by far. I would hire him again in a heartbeat, and HIGHLY recommend him.
Shawn & Neil Gould
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent job you did at our daughter’s reception last night. Your piano music was beautiful and you really kept the party going. It was a night to remember!
Debbie and John Stinson
I know we all fear getting a “cheesy” DJ. Joe was so not cheesy, in fact he was super cool! He was the only DJ we arranged to meet with (I was very anxious about our DJ search!) and we booked him on the spot. Two weeks before the wedding when I was reaching my “fed up” point in the wedding planning, our detail meeting with him got me PUMPED for the wedding again! He knew the style of music we were aiming for and was totally open to playing music for my parents’ guests to dance to. He even kept his cool when my demanding mother came up to him with 5 songs to play IN A ROW, and yet he still checked with us about it since WE were the ones paying him! PLUS, He happens to be a great pianist, so if you need him to play for your ceremony or dinner he can do that too! He was a great MC and we are happy to give him a huge thumbs up!

Thank you so much for being our musician, DJ & emcee at our wedding! You were such a true professional. We absolutly loved your piano music at dinner & everyone obviously loved the dancing music. We will recommend you without hesitation!
Stephanie & Reid
Thanks Joe, for doing such a great job at our wedding. We particularly liked the music you selected for our dinner. I will highly recommend you to anyone who needs a great, professional musician or DJ.
Brian Wall
We want to thank you so much for your hard work at our wedding! We are both very happy that we chose you to handle our music, because you were great to work with prior to the wedding & you did an excellent job on our wedding day as well. Jason & I commented the next day that we were pleasantly surprised that everything went so smoothly at our wedding… we decided this was largely due to the fact that we hired experienced, professional vendors like you who we could depend on to follow through with everything that we requested. Thanks again for everything, Joe. Jason & I will definitely recommend you to anyone we know who is in need of a really good DJ &/or pianist.
Sarah & Jason Stolberg
Thank you so much for performing at our wedding. The piano was wonderful and set the exact romantic mood I was hoping for. You did an outstanding job and we are so grateful!

Joe, we truly appreciate all that you did for us. We had so much fun, and you were the main reason. We could not have asked for better music. Thank you so much for everything. It was a wonderful night!

Joe, thank you so much for helping to make our wedding so special, and for all your help and patience, it was definitely appreciated. We feel very blessed to have found you and that you were available to be a part of our special day. Thank you so much!
Stephanie & Eric Crawford
We used Joe for our wedding, and he was WONDERFUL!!!!! I can’t stress enough what a great job he did. His piano music during dinner was great and he is also great as a DJ. He is also one of the sweetest, warmest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
Stacie & Frank Martz
I wanted to send a quick thank you to tell you just how much fun we had at our wedding! The music was great and you did a great job mixing it up. Your piano music at dinner was wonderful. You will be our recomendation of choice for anyone seeking a DJ or pianist. Thanks again Joe — hope to see you soon!
John & Melissa Macdonald
Thank you for your wonderful performances at our wedding! You played the piano beautifully, adding elegance and emotion to the ceremony. You also did a fantastic job as our disk jockey for our reception. We were very happy how you played just the right combination of songs to get everybody on their feet and dancing! You were so easy and friendly to work with. Thank you again for helping to make our special day perfect.
Tracy & Jeff Matthews
Joe is great! We loved him! He did live piano for our ceremony and a mix of live piano & smooth jazz CD’s during our cocktail hour and dinner. Then he DJ’d the rest of the evening, and kept the party rolling! Joe is first class all the way. He is very professional, yet fun. He is not your typical “cheesy DJ”. His prices seem to me to be lower than most of the competition and his performance superior.
Julie & Brett Michaelson
Dear Joe, Thank you Thank you!  Billy and I enjoyed your piano music and professionalism at our wedding. We are glad you could be a part of it.  In all honesty, I don’t think I would have changed anything! The dance selections you made were great and I loved it.  As I said earlier, you were one aspect I did not have to worry about. I knew we were in good hands. Thanks again for being great, we are definitely passing your name along.
