My fiance and I chose to book our wedding reception entertainment through Lethal Rhythms after meeting with several other competitors and they just didn't seem to be as dedicated and passionate to providing the best quality of entertainment and energy for the price they were quoting us which was very close to what Joel and his team at Lethal Rhythms charges for their services. We wanted a DJ who just doesn't stand there and hit play all night long, truthfully an Ipod can do that. After meeting with Joel I could tell that being a DJ was his passion and he really cares about his clients event. As being a DJ myself for the past 18 years,I have very high standards which I felt would not be met with the other DJ's we interviewed. Music, energy, and overall flow is the backbone to an amazing wedding reception, and with Lethal Rhythms I have complete confidence that our wedding reception will be nothing short of spectacular and memorable for us and our guests. When I asked other DJ's about certain equipment requests they said they would get back with me after they found out the cost of renting the requested equipment, everything I asked of Joel and Lethal Rhythms they already have and are familiar with its operations. Joel and Lethal Rhythms have already preformed at our wedding venue before so they have a working relationship with venue staff and the layout of the facility, the others I talked to had never heard nor let alone been to our venue. When I learned that the competition was unfamiliar with our venue I inquired if the would go to the venue to meet with the staff and get a feel for the location prior to the day of our wedding, most replied that was not needed and they would just arrive a little earlier than needed on the day of the event. There are more reasons why I hired Lethal Rhythms but I don't want this to feel like I'm just bashing Joel's competition, fact is I have complete faith that our wedding reception will be a hit by hiring Joel and Lethal Rhythms!

Joel was great to work with from beginning to end. He was always very quick in his responses, professional, and made me feel at ease (which is not easy for an extremely type A bride like me!). He created custom songs that I requested for my processional, and really got what type of music/event we wanted. It truly was a killer party. All of our guests kept talking about what an awesome DJ he was- not your usual played out wedding music. Our photographers even commented that it was the most fun wedding they've shot :) Thanks again, Joel!!

Last July, I did my research, as any good bride would do. :) I saw on the knot that it listed Lethal Rhythms as #1 for DJ entertainment. Why wouldn't I want that for my most memorable day of my life?! I quickly contacted their marketing manager, and I have also communicated with Joel. He has been absolutely amazing throughout the entire process making sure that I was always in contact with our DJ. Enter Chris Watson. We got the recommendation for Chris based on who my husband and I are as a couple. Chris Watson of Lethal Rhythms Entertainment provided an upbeat, vibrant, and memorable experience for our entire wedding reception! I am 100% pleased with the quality of service that he provided my husband and me. It all started with Chris meeting with us in person last July to gain a sense of who we were as a couple, and he met with me a month before the wedding to finalize and personalize details. Of course, we also corresponded via phone, email, and through his music database. I can honestly say that I am touched by how Chris went above and beyond to make sure he knew exactly the feel we wanted to create at our reception! During the reception, Chris was quickly and skilfully attain the "pulse" of the crowd, and the rest, well, is history!

You always hear from other people that your wedding day will go by SO fast. We never knew how fast they meant until it happened to us. We remembered bits and pieces but wished we could have pressed rewind and took a few moments to soak it all in. Well, fortunately we were able to do just that! With having Lethal Rythms do our videography we were able to curl up on the couch together and watch the best day of our lives all over again. We got those moments to soak it in (and if we wanted to soak it up again, we could) :) . We shed some happy tears and were reminded of the commitment we made that day. A commitment that you will find you NEED to be reminded of,often! It was almost like a mini vow renewal! We will definitely be making watching our wedding video a anniversary tradition. Seriously, the best wedding gift to give to yourselves! Thanks to everyone at Lethal Rhythms for giving us such an awesome gift and for helping making our day SO special!

DJ Fernando of Lethal Rhythms Entertainment was one of the absolute best decisions that we made for our wedding! He provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and he could not have been any easier or more fun to work with. He completely understood the mood we were trying to set with each part of our wedding and totally nailed it - all of it. Our reception was a blast! DJ Fernando's mixing skills were such a hit - we didn't ever want the party to end! Thank you so, SO much for making our wedding day flawless!

There's so much to say about how much I enjoyed working with Joel at Lethal Rhythms for my wedding day that I don't know where to start. I guess I should start by saying that I'm the kind of bride that when people asked me about my wedding day, I would start by describing the music playlist. People would ask about the dress and I wouldn't be able to describe if it was A-line or Ballgown. I say that to set the context that music was a VERY important wedding planning decision for me.
Joel and his team were very responsive when I had questions. They made the planning process and music decisions very easy by providing suggestions. They had options and recommendations that included everything from traditional to unique. Joel managed my ceremony music in addition to my reception music, and he even came to a processional practice to make sure the music would work for what we had planned. But most importantly, he knew how to make the right selections at the right time to get the party going and keep it going. And best yet, all of these services came within my conservative budget. I would highly recommend Lethal Rhythms again, and I hope I can hire Joel for a future party where I can dance the night away! Thanks again Joel!

At that age where all my friends are getting married, Joel and the staff at Lethal Rhythms are by far the best group of DJ's that I have seen at any wedding. Joel has a way of avoiding the awkward and annoying issues that most DJ's don't seem to understand (wedding party is introduced correctly and names are not mixed up, bride and groom are not pulled away from conversations with grandparents or distant family but are allowed to complete conversations before cake cutting or other events, coordinates well with all other vendors to make sure all of the evening's events go off without a hitch).
The wedding flow is constantly maintained, Joel is able to keep the dance floor full and guest having a great time by selecting music that fits the moment, opposed to trying to stick to a preset playlist that doesn't accommodate for the mood throughout the celebration. Joel also does a wonderful job of working with the bride and groom before the wedding to get an understanding on the types of music that the bride and groom want and do not want played.
Overall my fiancee and I were extremely impressed with the passion and knowledge Joel and his staff have towards making a wedding run smoothly and making it a event that you will never forget, for these reasons we have hired Joel to DJ our wedding and we would tell anyone else they should do the same.

My fiancé & I are both big into music. We go to concerts & shows all the time, & my fiancé even DJ's at clubs & events around Atlanta, so the music for our wedding is extremely important to us.
We want our guests to really enjoy themselves at our reception & we feel that a DJ who knows how to get the crowd dancing is the way to do just that, so when we got engaged, the only person we could imagine having DJ our wedding was Joel Rabe at Lethal Rhythms!
I met Joel at a corporate event right after I graduated college. He left such a lasting impression that now, 4 1/2 years later, he is who we have asked to DJ our wedding!
We had our first meeting with Joel last week & it went really, really well! We had such a fun time discussing the details with him! Joel really took the time to get to know us as a couple & spent time talking to us about exactly how we envision our wedding day. He even provided us with some really great ideas that we had not thought about ourselves.
My fiancé & I both left the meeting feeling very excited & very confident that Joel will be able to help make our day the very best that it can be. I feel like I don't need to waste any time stressing over the DJ or music for the wedding, because I can count on Joel to do his thing.
WOW, such a relief to feel so good about our choice! I can now focus on other things like finding that perfect dress! I strongly recommend Joel & Lethal Rhythms!! Have fun planning brides!

We had the pleasure of having Joel (the owner) be our fabulous DJ and lighting expert.
He was amazing! The only reason ours costed over $1000 was because we also had Lethal Rhythms do up-lighting at our venue.
He made sure all the details were taken care of. From a set up for the ceremony location, to the Rabbi having a mic so our guests could hear him and our vows, to making sure the music fit the atmosphere, and setting up great photos for our photographer (like me, the bride, behind the DJ booth). I honestly could not have asked for a better DJ. He mashed up two of our favorite artists and we are getting him to make us a copy of that mash up because it was perfect! He was very professional and ensured that everything musically was smooth. We spoke on the phone several times and even talked through the whole day through music to make sure that we were on the same page. Seriously....book him, you won't regret it.

I was in a wedding in the middle of April where Joel from Lethal Rhythms was DJ'ing. My friend (the bride) wanted a fun vibe and this was the perfect DJ for that. The entire wedding moved seamlessly and Joel transitioned it all (from the intro's, to cake cutting, dancing,etc) real well. This guy does it all! The music was great and most everyone danced.
Much to my surprise I went to a wedding two weeks later and there he was again! Once again Joel led the reception well and mixed some good tunes. The music and setup had some variation from the last wedding so it seems like it is tailored to your preferences.
Overall I would say if you want to have a fun reception and actually have people dancing you might want to check out Lethal Rhythms!

Working with DJ Joel Rabe from Lethal Rhythms was a great experience. He is an amazing DJ and our friends and family had a fantastic time dancing all night. The only negative from the whole experience that he was unable to find the instrumental version of our first dance song as requested and didn't mention it to us until after the first dance. He did do a good job dropping out most of the drums to make it sound like the instrumental version, but it would have been nice to know before hand. Beyond that, Joel did a wonderful job and I have already recommended him to a friend!

I have known Joel Rabe for 2 years and he is one of the best DJ's in Atlanta! He was the DJ at my best friend's wedding this past weekend in Roswell. Joel absolutely crushed the reception and guests were dancing the entire night! He played a mix of the best music and every age group was loving it including my Mom and Dad in their 60's!! Joel is a top notch DJ and I look forward to using him in the future.

Dj Fernando was spectacular! I didn't give him an easy task when I asked him to play music that would have my Latin family, Miami and Southern friends dancing the night away. But he delivered! Everyone had a blast ! I definitely recommend using lethal rhythms. Joel is also very helpful and responsive to any questions you may have! Two thumbs up!

Matt and I knew that we'd have a blast dancing at our wedding, but we were absolutely blown away. Lethal Rhythms was the best vendor we worked with, and Joel must be the best DJ in Atlanta because literally not a single person stayed in their seat. The dance floor was packed the entire night and stayed that way, even after the open bar had long been closed. So many of our family and friends told us it was the best night of their lives and how it was the most fun they had ever had. Brides and grooms - hire Joel if you want your wedding to be the best party of all time.
Member Since: 4/11/2011
Lethal Rhythms is amazing! I can not say enough about how professional they are as a company. Fernando was the DJ at our wedding reception and he did an amazing job! He was on time, dressed professionally, followed our timeline exactly, and the guests loved him. He was so amazing that one of our wedding guests called while we were still on our honeymoon to book him for their out of state wedding! It made me feel great knowing that our guests had a fantastic time dancing the night away at our reception. Lethal Rhythms was worth every penny and I would refer them to anyone that is looking for a fun filled, upbeat, amazing reception.

It's probably very important that I state off the bat that our wedding day has not yet arrived and therefore have not yet gotten the pleasure to have the full experience of Joel + Co. However, I do think the story up until now with them is appropriate enough.
Music has been a central theme between me and my fiance since the day we met, so it was evident how important the selection of our reception's music would be. The broad reach of our taste showed that absolutely no band would fit the bill, so we foresaw a quest for the perfect DJ.
The weeks that followed I was introduced to plenty of able-bodied DJs in the area, but honestly, none of them could fit the bill. A lot of them seemed to give out a hokey, kind of corny, "Jay Leno Has Come And Stolen Your Wedding" type vibe. And none of them seemed to fully encapsulate the completely unique experience that we had envisioned our wedding reception to be.
Then I found out about Joel Rabe. I knew he would be perfect when I found out he didn't play YMCA at weddings (first check) and that he could mix the songs Laura and I love into just one ongoing song without interruption (second check.) All I had to do was to have him pass the mother of the groom test (after all, the wedding would be in her backyard, so she would have to have some say.)
I set my mom up with a link to a couple of his samples online. Since she was from a different generation than the me and Laura, this new sound of mashing the songs up made my mother hesitant at best. "Let's just not jump into anything quite yet," I think were her words.
One evening, though, weeks after this statement was made, I met with my mom after an event she had just attended. She couldn't have been more excited about the DJ she had just seen. She went on and on about how great the music was, how much the DJ was able to get everyone on the floor, and how pretty much the guy made the party. She was so enamored by this one DJ she had to go up, introduce herself and get his contact info.
She then told me, "I don't care what you think about that other DJ, you HAVE to get this guy!" She handed me his card and it just happened to be Joel's.
To wrap it up: Joel's being given an A+ on the hard-to-please mother test and that's before the wedding has even taken place. A score like that can't be beaten.
Mark, Thank you for taking the time to share! The story is great - we are always honored when someone chooses us to be involved in such a special day, and to read that your Mother wanted to book us after seeing us perform is a testimonial to our abi...

We just had our wedding this past Saturday night, and DJ Joel Rabe from Lethal Rhythms was our DJ/MC for the night. Quite simply, he was perfect. The music was awesome. He live-mixed the two songs we wanted for our wedding party intro perfectly, and the guests were up and dancing before dinner was even done. It was amazing! We are so grateful to Joel for helping make our wedding such a great night. All of our guests raved that he was the best wedding DJ they've ever had, and we agree! We would recommend Joel and Lethal Rhythms to anyone.

When thinking about our wedding one thing we knew for sure was that music was very important. My husband and I knew we wanted someone who knew all types of music and was certainly not going to play anything we didnt want. I began looking for a DJ for my wedding and I came across Lethal Rhythms and I had to say it was the best choice I made. From the beginning the whole team was always conscience of our needs and made us feel important no matter what. Fernando, the DJ at our wedding understood exactly what we wanted when we spoke to him and there was no difference when it came to the wedding. As the Bride i know I dance all night as were all my guest. He varied our music and played everything we asked (including Latin music which was the most important). Joel was supper accommodating and was always there to answer question when I needed it. I highly recommend them to any bride looking for amazing entertainment for your wedding. Don't think twice before using them. They have several DJ's and I am sure they are all as amazing as Fernando was! Thank you so much Joel and Fernando!!!

We had Joel from Lethal Rhythms do our wedding ceremony and reception. Both were awesome! While some brides may know exactly what part of each song they want played at an exact moment, I hadn't even given a thought to it until we saw the detailed event form that he sent us. I didn't think about choosing a song for the garter toss/bouquet toss or the cutting of the cake! I also hadn't considered having an "exit song" so it was great to use someone with so much experience. He had the guests on their feet clapping for the wedding party and our entrances! We honestly stayed on the dance floor the entire night, it was awesome!
Thank you Jill! It was a great event, the location and the decor were just awesome! Summerour was the perfect place for your wedding! I appreciate the compliments. Thank you to both of you for allowing me to be a part of such a special day in you...

Joel Rabe was the DJ at my wedding and he was amazing from start to finish. I knew he was the one I wanted the day I met him, he has such a great way of communicating and ensuring that your wedding is the best it can possibly be. Joel created a first dance mix per our request for the wedding that my husband and I coreographed a dance to, it was a total hit with our guests. After that everything was in Joels hands! I can't begin to explain how relieved I was with him doing a great job! Our guests stayed on the dance floor for our complete 6 hour reception!! Several guests tell me it was the best wedding they have ever been too and their number 1 statement is that the dj was awesome.
He had so many unique tricks and plans for the wedding! Loved him! I highly recommend lethal ryhthms.
Thank you for the kind words :) It was a great event and it was an honor to be a part of such a special day in your lives together! Thank you and I wish you the best in your new lives together!
