Thinking of having an "iPod Wedding"?
Think again!

Top 11 Reasons NOT To Use An iPod!
(or any other personal music player)

11. Who is going to announce you and any special dances...hmmmm?

10. Dead air between songs. This means no one is dancing and everyone is waiting to do 'something'.

9. Something goes wrong!! Who you gonna call?

8. Locked into a specific order of songs. Can you change it? Sure...but YOU have to change it.

7. You have to locate a sound system and lights, rent it all, load it up, transport, unload, setup, run it, tear it down, load it up, transport it back, unload it again. I'm tired just reading this.

6. When you rent, you get low-quality, road-weary, beat up equipment that won't look good. Not to mention sound good. Yuck!

5. Requests-on-the-fly? Nope.

4. What's your backup plan? Do you have a backup plan? See #9 in case you need a reason why you would need a backup plan.

3. Having a 'friend' working the equipment is the fastest way to ruin a friendship.

2. Pro DJ's have done this type of event countless times. Have you gotten married countless times?

And the Number 1 reason...

1. It's YOUR WEDDING DAY! You don't work on your wedding day!

Here's what my clients say...

"I was very happy with Michael's level of professionalism and performance. All the songs he played were great. The equipment was high quality and everyone enjoyed their time very much. I would recommend Big Time Music & Lights to DJ any important event."

Patrick Ridall

"I wanted to thank you so much for going above and beyond, and getting your personal generator so that we could at least have some celebration with our guests, despite the power outage. Without your efforts there probably would not have been much of a reception under the circumstances."

Gideon Fersztman


"Mike -- you did a fabulous job. What I loved most was your friendly, but not over-the-top style. We were not looking for a "club style" DJ and after reading your helpful information on the internet, we were sure you were the right DJ for us. Your package for both the ceremony and reception music was perfect for our needs. We could not have been happier with the services you provided."

Susan Marino, mother-of-the-bride, Kimberly Marino


"Fantastic job on my daughter's reception. The music kept people on the dance floor from beginning to end. The dance lights were fantastic. And the uplighting took people's breath away when they walked into the ballroom. Thank you so much!"

Suzanne Williams, mother-of-the-bride, Sarah Williams

"I would also like to express our sincere appreciation for your services. Our guests have commented on how great the wedding was especially the D.J. I will highly recommend you to anyone in need of a DJ in the future."

Carrie Bleakley


"Not only did he play every request that Stacy and I made, he also knew just what to play in order to get people out on the dance floor. As a matter of fact, just last night Dan commented on what a great job he did.
He's great at what he does!"

Donna Bauer, mother-of-the-bride, Stacy Bauer

"Thanks so much for providing the music for Nate & Daniele's wedding on Saturday. You completed our day and made our night most enjoyable!!! We had a great time!! We'll be happy to recommend you to anyone we know who's looking for music for their special occasion. Thanks for the providing wonderful music for the kids special day."

Linda Roberts & Peter Deckert
step-parents of the bride, Daniele King


"You by far were the best DJ service I have ever had at one of my events!!!"
