"It's Music To Your Ears!"

Quick Tip # 6

Guest Seating - When and where possible, arrange your guests so that the older adults are seated away from the dance floor. This allows for the best opportunties for 'talk time'. I'll still play a varied selecion of songs for all ages to dance to, at a volume that's acceptable.

But since the majority of the songs will be more contemporary, those adults wishing to sit and chat will be in a better position to do so if they're as far away from the speakers as possible. It makes for happy guests all the way around.

Want to be the envy of your classmates? Wouldn't you like to have the party
'everyone' wants to go to? You've found the solution right here. Now there's
nothing wrong with a simple party thrown by your family with your closest friends attending. But why not have a party that they'll STILL be talking about at your 10-year class reunion?!

A graduation party is a celebration of your transition from childhood innocence to responsible adulthood. Naturally, occasions like this should be celebrated responsibly at ANY age. That means, quite frankly, that you don't spike the punch, talk your older brother or sister into buying you alcohol, or 'party' with illegal substances. None of these are the way to kick-off your new adult status.

What you need to do is give your guests a 'show'! It may be a few years until you can legally go to all the hottest clubs. So why not bring the hottest club to you? Club-style lighting can turn your backyard into the latest hot spot.

Although, the 5-second rule doesn't apply to food you drop in the backyard. Grass is NOT tasty!

Let BIG TIME Music & Lights make your graduation party ROCK!


You've spent nearly all your savings. You've struggled and toiled day and night to get your business up and running. The big day approaches. The day you unlock those front doors to the public for the very first time. You've thought of everything.

Or have you?...

Your head turns when you're out and about and you hear music. The same thing will work for your promotion as well. What better way to draw attention to your business than with music.

During your event, your customers will hear:

Facts about your business, products, or services.
Specials & Grand Opening offers.
Mentions about your suppliers and business partners.

Let BIG TIME Music & Lights set the mood & atmosphere at your next media event!


No matter what holidays you observe, there's almost always a reason to celebrate with a get-together. Large crowds or small gatherings, music is the spark that will make a ho-hum dinner turn into a night to remember!

Some of the MANY holidays we all know about (and some we don't know anything about) are listed below:

Boxing Day
Ground Hogs Day
Rosh Hashanah
New Years Eve
April Fools Day
Valentines Day
St. Patrick's Day
Yom Kippur
4th of July
Presidents Day
Mothers/Fathers Day
Cinco De Mayo

Basically, if you had enough people that wanted to celebrate National Paperclip Day, you've got enough people to celebrate with some music and dancing. With 80,000+ songs, BIG TIME Music & Lights can probably find some appropriate music to help celebrate the glory of the clip!

But naturally the most popular holidays (Christmas, Halloween, New Years Eve, etc.) are easily handled. And naturally, they are the first holidays to get booked. So don't wait until a month or so before the season to book. There's nothing that says you can't book your holiday party entertainment in the middle of the summer!


So you've decided to take the plunge! Congratulations!

Whether this is your first marriage, or your tenth (OMG!), BIG TIME Music & Lights will make it one to remember.

From simple cocktail receptions, to multi-course sit-down affairs, from elegant indoor events to backyard beach luau's, Nothing is too outrageous or low-key. It's YOUR day...make it special for YOU!

All wedding packages include a pre-event consultation if desired. If you are in the Finger Lakes region, we can meet at your home or other location.

Event lighting includes club-style lights and effects that will dazzle your senses. The scale of the lighting and sound equipment will correspond to the room size so you'll never feel overwhelmed or underimpressed.

The type and order of events are chosen by you with the use of a schedule worked out prior to the reception. As with most wedding receptions, schedules become more fluid once everything gets underway. But rest assured, I can easily 'go with the flow'. No one will know you decided to change the order because nature called at the last moment. (Well, I guess now 'everyone' will know!)

I come appropriately attired for the type of event. A simple tuxedo in most cases. In the event of a 'Luau' or an informal warm-weather outdoor event, dress shorts and a golf shirt would be about as 'relaxed' as my wardrobe would get.

That is...unless you're having a blowout beer-blast. In that case, I come prepared in cutoff shorts, flip-flops, and a pressed and starched flannel shirt!

(just kidding!)

...I don't use starch. ;-)
