Word on the Street
"Joel was our wedding DJ in San Juan, Puerto Rico in February 2017. He was the MOST AMAZING wedding DJ that we have ever seen and were lucky enough to use him for our wedding. He was engaged with the crowd, he read the audience, and was the life of the party. We loved that he was able to incorporate some song mixes as the night went on so that the crowd kept dancing the night away. Also, he did a great job of reading the crowd. We requested some older 60's/70's that he played in the beginning of the night and then slowly brought in music from the younger crowd later. The part that we loved was that he made the event so personal to us. He called out our names, made some fun jokes, and even though we just met him that night, we felt like we had known him for years! No words can express how happy my husband and I were after our wedding. Heck, we even invited him to the after party to celebrate. Make sure if you have Joel at your wedding if you want an amazing party! MUCHAS GRACIAS!"
Big J delivered the BEST PARTY EVERY! My husband and I are really into music, so it was top priority that we find a good DJ to play our favorite tunes the whole night. From day 1 he was extremely responsive and accommodating. He provided us with a form to fill out detailing the schedule we had in mind for the reception, and what songs would be played when. This was such a nice touch because it left no room for error the whole night, meaning it was perfect! He not only played those few select songs we wanted for the cutting of the cake, first dance, bouquet toss, etc., but he actually spun those records! I hate it when DJs play a whole song through during a party. I mean people pay money for DJs to just hit play all night. Well Joel DID NOT do this! He was spinning with skill! He mashed up some of our favorite artists from Beyoncé, to Kendrick Lamar, to Disclosure, to my hometown Houston music. He strategically started the night off with 70s and 80s for the older crowd to get their groove on before they went to bed. Then, he followed that up with the 90s, 00s, and 10s for the younger crowd to "get lit!" Many of the wedding guests are STILL talking (6 months later) about how this was the most fun they have had in a long time/at a wedding/EVER! I owe this to Big J. Toast to the best DJ in Puerto Rico!
When I read Big J's reviews on wedding wire I thought to myself "This guy can't be that good. These reviews can't be real." Man was I wrong. Joel is the REAL DEAL people!!! He has a library of songs to choose from which contained hits for all generations and ages. He was able to play any song that we requested. He's not just some regular dj that just "plays songs" either. He had smooth transitions and even blended songs that were of different tempos cleanly. Crazy props to this guy! Mad skills!!! Book this dude for your wedding! You'd be a fool not to. Thank you Joel for being a part of Elvira and I's wedding. You made it a party we will never forget!!! Keep up the great work.
Where to start with Joel??? We don’t normally love to dance and had a small group so we were worried we would have a sad, empty dance floor. We didn’t even want a DJ. Our wedding planner assured us that with Big J everyone would dance all night and have a blast. We didn’t believe her. She couldn’t have been more right. He was without a doubt one of the finest vendors we utilized for the wedding. He was so good that I am hesitant to even leave a five-star review as I want to keep him all to ourselves! At so many weddings the “DJ” does nothing more than queue up songs and work his way through a generic playlist. Joel is a true craftsman artfully mixing and weaving a musical narrative for the wedding celebration. His transitions and timing were remarkable and his attentiveness second to none. I’m not even sure if he left his booth for a few minutes at a time. At one point I wanted to go over and make sure he had a break and could eat something! My fiancé (unbeknownst to me) asked Joel to strive for a subtle James Bond theme. Rather than play the original recordings he actually located some updated recordings by the Las Vegas Philharmonic which were phenomenal. Everyone raved about it! Later during dinner, he provided some light music taking some artistic liberties from our playlist. Finally, during the dancing/celebration hours he really started to shine. The fact that he was able to keep our relatively small group of various ages moving to 2 AM was testament to his abilities. We had left over alcohol because no one wanted to leave the dance floor to get a drink and we had a 60-something electrical engineer dancing with a tie around his head. Enough said. Guest after guest commented the next day how amazing he was and how much fun they had dancing. Two of our guests want to book him for their venue in New Orleans. Joel do you travel? You’d better start because we’re going to be spreading your name on the mainland! Thanks for making our wedding a blast!
