Lethal Rhythms Entertainment DJ Showcase:

Joel Rabe

DJ Joel Rabe started Lethal Rhythms Entertainment in 1999 and has been DJ/Emceeing since 1995

Kicking off the very first of our new weekly DJ Showcase pieces is a feature on Lethal Rhythms CEO and DJ Joel Rabe.  Joel founded Lethal Rhythms in 2001 to bring an up-tempo, professional vibe to the Atlanta scene, and has since performed for about 100 events every year!  He has been featured on “Good Day Atlanta” multiple times sharing advice on how to have the perfect event.  While he can mash up Top 40, Classic Dance, Hip Hop, etc (you can hear samples at Lethal Rhythms DJ Music Gallery and DJ Music Samples Link 2), Joel also performs for many multi-cultural and international clients mixing Arabic, Spanish, Persian, Cuban and other styles on a regular basis.  Joel does it all – weddings, corporate events for the big boys in town, mitzvahs, and more!

Did you know that if you book Joel for your private event, he will provide you with a copy of your dance mix afterward?  That’s right!  Joel records and mashes the top hour to an hour and a half recap of the dance party as a Tribute Mix.  For an awesome sample Tribute Mix, listen to the Sound Cloud clip Joel created for his recent clients Ryan and Ashley, who tied the knot this November. Check out the Lethal Rhythms Music Gallery for links to Joel’s professional mixes.

Our Testimonials

“What an AWESOME DJ! We heard a lot of great reviews about Lethal Rhythms, so we knew we had to book him for our wedding right away. We got to work with Joel Rabe and he was great. He was very professional and listened to what we wanted. He provided a great party atmosphere for everyone to enjoy and even did some mixing on the spot! I am so glad we listened to the reviews and decided to go to them for our music. Great party and affordable too!”

-Rich, Sea Island, 12/5/14

“Joel Rabe with Lethal Rhythms is the BEST wedding DJ that I could have EVER imagined. He was our DJ for our wedding reception at the Georgian Terrace Hotel and he is hands down the very best. The transition from dinner to cake cutting to the dancing was so smooth and he kept everyone very involved and interested. Every single guest was on the dance floor until the end of the night, old and young! Two of my bridesmaids are planning to book him for their weddings since they had such a great time. You really can’t go wrong with Joel at Lethal Rhythms. Hiring him was one of our best wedding planning decisions!!”

-Megan, The Georgian Terrace Hotel, August 16, 2014

“Joel is very accommodating. He allows you to fill out a form online prior to the wedding so you can list any special song requests, and he does a phenomenal job at mixing the music. We received many compliments about his performance from our guests. I strongly recommend Joel or his Lethal Rhythms team for weddings or other events. He truly made my night incredible, & I will never forget how much fun we had dancing the night away at our wedding. I cannot thank Joel enough!”

-Stephanie & Kyle, July 18, 2014, Summerour Studio

“I had the pleasure of working with Lethal Rhythms throughout my planning process. Joel was our DJ. He was great from beginning to end. The day of the wedding can be stressful and but Joel was on point the entire time! After we said I DO the rest of the night flowed flawlessly and we danced the night away. It was a PARTY for sure. My guests RAVED about the DJ and the music selection during and even after the wedding. Joel really kept the energy up throughout the night and made the traditional garter and bouquet toss so much fun. EVERYONE had a fabulous time. So yes, Joel you were amazing! It was the best night EVER.”

-Jennifer, May 2, 2014, Foxhall Sporting Club

“Joel Rabe of Lethal Rhythms is “DA MAN”! I knew we were lucky when he was personally available on our date but now I know how AMAZINGLY lucky we were! WOW…Joel was organized, personable, professional, fun and knows how to throw a GREAT party! His background in logistics and psychology was apparent as he literally “ran the show” from the moment the cocktail hour started until the last guest left the building. He intrinsically knew exactly the right time to transition from the first dance to the toasts to the cake cutting…everything went off without a hitch! Joel had an unlimited database of songs that he was able to access immediately upon request and even brought his own professional lighting to create the perfect mood on the dance floor! He was just as talented as an Emcee as he was a DJ! All of our guests were talking about how GREAT Joel was and how much fun they had! He made the most important day of our lives truly special!”

-Jen, June 14, 2014, Montaluce Winery

“Joel is a pleasure to work with and an absolute ball of energy and fun! He made us feel at complete ease on our big day. We love music and he was so open to taking all in all of the ideas and working with what we gave him as well as adding his own fabulous suggestions. He is the epitome of professionalism, getting back to all of our questions quickly and taking the time to meet with us and prepare us for our day. He made sure to connect with our planner and have everything coordinated so it was one less thing for us to worry about. Also, he went with the flow, we had last minute changes with timing and speeches and you would never know because he is so amazing! Every single person has said our wedding was the most fun wedding they’ve been to and that is all due to Joel! He’s above and beyond!”

-Janette and Dan Uggla

“Joel kept the party rocking all night long and our guests danced the night away at our amazing reception. Thanks to Joels MC and mixing skills he kept the energy level high which we received numerous positive comments from our friends and family, even a month later people are still saying that our wedding was the best they had ever been to. Being a DJ myself, I was very impressed with all aspects of Lethal Rhythms and their ability to deliver and meet all of my high demands for the ultimate party for our wedding! Look no further than Lethal Rhythms, you will not find anyone better.”

-Chris

“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!!”

-Abby

“I knew I wanted an awesome party vibe for my wedding so getting a good DJ was our first priority in the wedding planning process. We booked Joel right away because we heard so many great things about him through our wedding planner, friends, and websites. And they were all right! I absolutely loved working with Joel! He was extremely professional, always on time, gave good suggestions, played every song we wanted and mixed in some other popular songs, and he was just fun to work with. He let me get up and DJ during the reception and he played any requests that were thrown his way. He also provided some nice uplights to match the decor and even provided the glowsticks for a unique send off. He led the night with great introductions and speeches and kept the party going strong all night! I would definitely recommend him to all my friends.”

-Michelle, Twelve Hotel Atlantic Station, 10/11/14

“Thank you so much for making Anna and JDs wedding extra special!! You kept the party going and Anna really enjoyed getting behind the equipment!”

-Vince, August 9, 2014, Ventanas

“We hired Joel as our DJ as soon as he said, “Just so you know, I don’t do cheesy.” Even though I was planning a big wedding myself, I typically find weddings kind of corny and unoriginal. I knew that I wanted our wedding to be remembered as a PARTY THAT DIDN’T STOP and that is exactly what we got. Joel is fun, but extremely professional and was always there for us whenever we needed him. Our wedding was in Atlanta, but we live in Washington, DC so we relied on technology as our main source of communication. Joel would email or call us back ASAP and never left us hanging. He is also well known in Atlanta so he was fabulous at pointing us in the right direction for other vendors. We also used his company for a photo booth for the reception and videography (WE LOVE BRYAN AND NICOLE!!!!) and every part was on point. Joel was the best decision because he made our wedding reception a night our friends and family will never forget!!”

-JD & Anna, August 9, 2014, Ventanas

“Lethal Rhythms being a part of our wedding made our experience incredibly memorable. Joel goes above and beyond to make you feel taken care of and it felt so nice to relax and know that he was in charge of making the wedding beautiful. The comfort level I felt with him was incredible and he went the extra step to understand what I wanted. He has an amazing talent of listening to what I said, asking all the right questions and then taking that information and creating a beautiful event. He is wonderful!!”

-Lisa, January 3, 2014, Barnsley Gardens

“Joel was our D.J. We had a dry wedding and I told him we wanted a PARTY!!!!! He delivered far beyond our expectations. Our family and friends are still talking about how much fun he was and how he got the party started. Thank you again Joel, sorry it took us so long to say it!!!! YOU WERE AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“Lethal rhythms made my wedding day a day to remember. Joel was and is the best DJ/MC a bride and groom could ask for. He was organized, always accessible and comes through even with last minute changes. Joel can make things happen. My grand entrance for the reception was spectacular, the guests were prepped, hyped and ready for the new Mr. and Mrs. (oh how I loved every minute of it). We got so many compliments about Joel, and “who is the DJ” even to this day, a month later. The venue that we used had an on-site DJ but we chose lethal rhythms’, Joel, and even the coordinator of the venue said Joel did a great Job. Not only was he great at spinning the records and keeping the dance floor filled’ he was a super MC. He kept the flow going from the bridal party entrance to the cake cutting to the toast, the garter and bouquet toss. It was all around great. We recommend Lethal rhythms five stars all the way!!!!!”

-Juliet, June 29, 2014, Glendalough Manor

“Joel was the BEST!! He kept the music flowing and the dance floor full. Our wedding guests constantly commented on how the DJ was amazing and helped create a memorable night.”

-Kristina

“If you are looking for the best DJ in Atlanta you have to hire Lethal Rhythms for your wedding!! NO DOUBT- All of our guests loved the music the DJ and the VIBE! Joel is the BEST. He made our wedding! My husband and I have been to about 10 weddings and by far the DJ/Band makes or breaks a wedding. He was not only a DJ but directed the whole event. Our wedding flowed sooooooo smoothly without any hiccups or people looking at each other wondering what was going to happen next. Our wedding was very small, about 60 people and let me tell you with the exception of the grandmothers, EVERY SINGLE PERSON hit the dance floor! I also added the uplighting from Joel, and the pictures I have so far have left me breathless. I am forever thankful to Joel because I will have nothing but GREAT memories forever of my wedding!! To top it off, he directed my photographer and videographer and led them to have some amazing shots! I cannot wait! I am SO SO PLEASED AND HAPPY… this was by far the BEST decision I made for our reception! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! He knows what he’s doing! WORTH EVERY PENNY! Get him while you can as he is starting to do fewer weddings and more bar mitzvahs!”

-Maria

“Joel was absolutely amazing. My friends & family were skeptical when they found out we were not having a band. Afterward, every person said this was the funniest wedding they had ever been to. Joel is organized, professional and easy to work with. He makes sure to keep everyone up out of their seats. The dance floor was packed the entire night. Joel thank you for making my wedding simply perfect.”

-Crystal, Lake Lanier Islands Resort

“Joel with Lethal Rhythms is just simply amazing. I met Joel a few years ago at a bridal event. Even though I was not engaged yet, I knew that when I was planning my wedding, I would ask him to DJ. He is extremely personable & knowledgeable about music. His experience with weddings really shined in our first meeting. He was able to provide wonderful suggestions to make the night flow smoothly, such as when to do the speeches, cut the cake, & more.”
“He killed it on on our wedding night! What I loved best about Joel was that immediately after dinner, he got everyone on the dance floor. He started our party right away, & with only a few hours at the reception, it was so much fun to get right into dancing. His music selection was awesome! He played all the traditional Jewish wedding songs for us, & he was able to keep everyone on the dance floor all night, including my friends, family & even the older relatives.”

“Joel was amazing! He kept everyone on the dance floor all night. He knew what the crowd wanted and kept everyone moving, including my husband’s grandfather who is 80! He made the night so memorable!! Such a great night!!”

-Whitney & Andrew, June 28, 2014, Ventanas

“DJ Joel Rabe made our night!!! My dream of having everyone old and young on the dance floor at my wedding came true! His technique and talent surpassed my expectations in every way! He went above and beyond to read the crowd to create incredible energy in the room while doing unique “extras” (something you would never expect a DJ to do) at cake cutting, garter, bouquet toss…he knows weddings! I did not suggest one song for the reception and instead let him do what he clearly does best and our guests had a great time and continue to rave about the DJ! Thank you, Joel Rabe and Lethal Rhythms for your talent in rocking an incredible party!”

-Alyssa, May 16, 2014, Greystone at Piedmont

“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 Ball gown. 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!”

-Carrie, April 19, 2014, Ventanas

“Joel Rabe was exactly what I was looking for for my New Years Eve wedding. He met with me in advance and truly cared about creating the right vibe. A week before he reviewed the details to make sure he had it right and he made a few suggestions I may not have thought of myself that we’re great ideas. The night of the event Joel was present without being overbearing, he was super fun without being obnoxious, and he kept the element of class I wanted to the event while still proving the party feeling. I could look at him and felt he knew what I wanted. The music was so good I never ate or made it off the dance floor all night! I can’t thank Joel enough for a fabulous night!”

-Karen

“WHERE DO I START??? Joel with Lethal Rhythms was incredible! I had read great reviews about him but was truly blown away and the professionalism, responsiveness, and talent! We contacted Joel for our wedding which was in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico I was unsure if he would travel and was beyond thrilled when he said he was available that weekend and would travel out of the country! My husbands family is from Afghanistan so we wanted to make sure we played Afghan music along with all the popular songs we enjoy here! Joel met with us several times to mix the Persian music with Rihanna and Tupac! haha Not easy but wow did he do a great job!!! It started to rain during the reception which was outdoors and not one person went to sit down! They actually had to shut us down at the end because we were having so much fun we lost track of time! We would ABSOLUTELY use Joel and Lethal Rhythms again! I would recommend him to everyone because he really is the best! Thank you for making our wedding so much fun Joel!!!  Mallory & Faisal Rahman, Playacar Palace, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.”
