Here below are just a few of the letters we have received back from our clients. I feel it is so important for future clients to see what our past clients say about us. This is a true reflection of the job we do for every Event.
Wedding Location: Statehouse Convention Center
Date: November 7th 2009
Notes: This wedding was for Bride and Groom-Vanessa & Lucas Lee. They were an awesome
couple and Lucas’s Grandfather is the Founder of ATA (American Taekwondo Association). This
was ranked as one of the highest profile weddings in the State in 2009 and we were so proud to
be a part of it.
To Whom It May Concern:
This is a letter of recommendation for Central Arkansas Entertainment. If
you are thinking about working with them, please do yourself a favor and
stop thinking. Working with them was by far the smartest decision we made.
We worked with Central Arkansas Entertainment during our wedding on Nov.
2009. They took care of all our audio, lighting and entertainment needs.
They came highly recommended by our wedding planner and all other vendors
involved. My now husband and I were very picky when it came to vendors; we
were especially concerned with getting the most value for our money.
Although, Central Arkansas Entertainment offered the best value hands down,
what truly sold us was their level of service.
Joe Snell, the owner of Central Arkansas Entertainment, was there for us
every step of the way. He answered e-mails promptly and thoroughly, he
re-worked estimates quickly to provide different scenarios, and was
available to us even sometimes with very short notice. He was honest and
clear about what to expect and delivered more than what he promised.
I truly believe Central Arkansas Entertainment treats each one of the events
for which they are contracted as their own. They go above and beyond the
call of duty and truly make you feel at ease every step of the way.
Thank you Joe and the Central Arkansas Entertainment Team for making our
wedding so unforgettable!

Comments: As a frantic bride, my ceremony and reception music was the far most important thing besides the dress. I not only wanted the ceremony to have class but to have a more modern feel. I searched the internet for a DJ who would be able to fulfill not only my dreams but my budget and BAM we found Joe with Central Arkansas Entertainment Agency.
From the moment he answered our call until the moment he packed his equipment up at the end of our
special day, he was blessing, no a must for our wedding,When we called Joe, he made my husband and I feel special not just like a customer or a consumer but like his friend. He came out to our home one evening, sat down with us and began to talk about the ceremony, reception music, song selections, time lines etc, which to a bride can be so stressful, but Joe handled it all, down to the final lighting in our reception hall..
Joe emailed me his website where I was able to give him details of my wedding party and also we were able to create a time line, pick out specific special songs or every song we wanted at our wedding. We chose to do just the specifics and let Joe work his DJ magic and he did just that.
With every week approaching closer and closer to our wedding, Joe was there. I called him/emailed him about
details of things or just because my nervous and stress was getting to me and he was always a phone call away with great advice or just a shoulder to lean on when you felt like your stress levels were as high as they could get.
THE BIG DAY— I waited for this day “all my life”, (which by the way was the song I chose to walk down the
aisle to and Joe had it ready to go on ) as I was getting ready, I noticed that Joe was there not 30 minutes
before the wedding but and hour and half early, setting up two different sound systems, one on the front porch
where I was getting married and one inside our reception hall. He was doing sound checks of the ceremony
music and making sure that everything sounded good. He visited with me and went over every detail with me
once more for my reassurance. He even cued the girls when to walk down the aisle. The ceremony music was beautiful and we had so many compliments on the music selections and style.
The entrance in to the reception hall was awesome, which was another great idea from Joe!!! The bridal party
lined up and was announced by name, a couple at a time by Joe. We danced in to a cute song called “All you need is love” by Brad Paisley.. The lighting was wonderful and the array of music played form oldies to new age was perfect for the age group we had at my wedding. We had so many compliments on our music selections, but no one even knew that we did not choose the music. Joe had chose everything played from “At Last” to Apple Bottom Jeans, he even accommodated the request of so many.
I know that we will be using Central Arkansas Entertainment for all our events and we will continue
recommending him to all our friends and family
Mine and Eric’s wedding was made even more unique and special because of Central Arkansas Entertainment
and Joe. We love our DJ, Do you?

Comments: I just wanted to write and let you know how much I appreciated you doing Molly’s wedding
reception. The music was great, and you were so much fun!! Several people commented on how they loved
having you get out there with them on the dance floor. You made it easy for us, and you were so friendly.
Thank you again so much!!!
Name: Tonya Earles (Mother of the Bride)
Event Location: Hendrix College Chapel & Conway Country Club
Comments: From the first time we meet with Joe we knew that he was the person we have been looking for
to do my daughters wedding. Joe played the violin for the wedding and also was the DJ at the reception. The
music that he played at the ceremony was incredible on his violin. It was so beautiful!! Oh my gosh, when it
came time for the reception, the party was on!! He had everyone dancing. Old and young. The music he played
(which we let him pick out, fit the style for everyone. If someone requested a song, Joe did not hesitate to play
it. He even got out there on the dance floor with us if we were uncertain how a line dance went. We still have
people coming up to us telling us how much fun they had, and how Joe kept the party going. They were amazed
at how great of a job he did. I would strongly recommend Joe Snell to anyone that is looking for a fun, yet
professional DJ or violinist. We appreciate you so much for everything you did for us for help making this day
so special. Thanks a bunch, Tonya

Comments: Joe, A very belated “thank you” for helping to make Shayla and Bryce’s wedding such a
memorable evening for them – and for family and friends. Numerous people complimented us on
the violin selections and the overall music at the reception. The lighting, too, got rave reviews –
even from people who weren’t familiar with the concept of “uplighting”. Feel free to use us as a
reference and I’d be more than happy to expand on this email to give anyone a more detailed
Thanks again for a spectacular evening!

Comments: Wedding from a Dad’s perspective . . .
Comments: As an old retired corporate CEO, we decided that Dad would be the wedding planner for a
daughter that required a special event, for more reasons than Joe has room on his reference list for . . . Music
is the absolute essence of the event flow and this event required a true Magician and Joe Snell won the role . . .
I have a personal friend that is the absolute mirrored guitar/singer reflection of Steven Curtis Chapman that
my daughter ‘required’ for her wedding and was from out of town . . . Joe and Kevin rehearsed via email and at
the rehearsal [1hour] AND the RESULT:
MAGIC like Disney could never imagine . . . Joe Snell orchestrated the wedding with his violin and then put on
his DJ magician suit for the reception and the night was indeed . . . Magical beyond our wildest imagination . . .

Comments: Joe, I just now got a minute to sit down and sort through some emails. Things have been crazy
since we got back from the honeymoon. I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how great of a job you
did. Everyone I talked to both that night and afterwards has been telling me how much fun they had and how
great the DJ was. Thank you for all of your help getting things together and planning the reception with me. You are amazing! Please let Elvis know that he did a great job, too. Trista was extremely surprised and is still talking about it today! Thank you so much again! You did an awesome job!

Event Location: Hamilton House Hot Springs, AR
Comments: I wanted to take a moment to thank you. You added so much to my ceremony and reception; it
would have not been nearly as wonderful without you. Your violin playing was beautiful and so fitting for the
setting. You were also so flexible during the reception. I know I had a list ready, but you adjusted many times on
the fly with many different requests from family members. It was such a pleasure meeting you; you guys are
awesome and I am thankful that I found your name on the internet. Tony and I thought the evening was
absolutely perfect. Thank you again for helping us make it a reality. Take care and God bless you! Germaine
Name: Eric & Amanda Richardson
Comments: From the moment my now husband called Joe with Central Arkansas Entertainment Agency to
when we first visited the amazing website, I knew Eric had picked the perfect DJ “Joe Snell.” We met with Joe
very soon after talking with him and found that he was not only a DJ but also a classical violinist. Joe was very professional, passionate about his job, and had an endless amount of knowledge on all types of music.
Needless to say, we booked him to play the violin at our wedding and to DJ our reception for four hours. A
few months before the wedding, Joe came to our house and played the violin for us. We then picked the songs for our wedding, and he gave us great advice on songs to use during the reception. I knew at that moment we had found a rare jewel, because none of my friends’ DJs had even offered this type of treatment to their clients. He was at the wedding early to set up and ready to go. The violin during the ceremony was absolutely beautiful and made it more special than if we had just had a song played over the PA system. After the wedding, we came into the reception. Joe announced everyone in the wedding party, and we each walked into the reception to a disco wedding song. This was also his idea and it was so much fun!!! It was a great way to begin the celebration and everyone was excited and ready to engage in a momentous night with us. His announcements, song selections, and lights were impeccable, and it made our reception a memory we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Eric and I had the time of our lives and perfection is the only word that
comes to mind when I think of Joe’s DJing style.
I have been to several weddings in the past, and I have never seen anyone have the charisma, excitement, and professionalism encompassed in one person like Joe! With high regard, I would highly recommend anyone to use Joe Snell at Central Arkansas Entertainment Agency. Remember – it’s only the most important day of your
