I discovered Big Time Mobile Entertainment for my daughter's wedding at a wedding expo. I went to the expo because Jennifer lives in Pennsylvania, but she wanted the wedding here in Wisconsin. I didn't know what to do. As soon as I met Dave Drake, I felt confident... Read More that I'd found the perfect deejay. He has an outgoing, fun personality & fantastic technology. His on-line music library is amazing! Even out-of-state, it was easy for Jen & Paul to find ideas & select music. Any music not in the library, Dave will find & add for you. A team of 4 dee-jays worked the wedding and it was SO much fun! Dave's ideas for different kinds of dances got everyone, of all ages, up on the dance floor. They also have "Photo-Bomb" where guests can transfer photos from their phones, so they show on a TV screen. I can't even tell you how thrilled we are with Big Time Entertainment. They are the best!

The whole team was wonderful to work with. They kept the reception moving smoothly from dinner to dessert, speeches to dancing all night long. Every guest we spoke with during (and a number of them after!) had nothing but kind words to say about how much they enjoyed our DJs and... Read More the music they played. We met with them beforehand to create a timeline of events for the reception, which helped to ease my anxiety about it all. I suddenly had no worries for the evening. I knew it would be in good hands! They played a fantastic variety of music, so there was something for everyone. Requests were taken and fulfilled within the evening. Their set up of lights was fun, and really added to the celebratory mood once the sun had set. All of the guests loved their Fotobomb add on, as did we. We have so many photos now of times throughout the night we might have otherwise missed because we were so busy being newly weds!

Dave and his crew were amazing throughout our whole wedding process. I booked them without meeting because of how great their reviews were and they did not disappoint. I communicated with them through email and they were always quick to respond and gave answers to all my... Read More questions. When we met with them a few weeks before the wedding they were able to find songs we requested that were somewhat strange and accommodate many different things. The website they use to request songs and create the timeline was also super helpful. They were there for our rehearsal and basically ran the whole thing which was a HUGE help since we did not have a coordinator. They provided our ceremony music and reception and everything ran smoothly and went down with no problems at all. We had so many guest ask "where did you find those DJs?? They were awesome." They made our wedding very special and had people on the dance floor the whole time which is exactly what we wanted. If you are anywhere in Wisconsin I would highly recommend them!!

If there was one thing I knew I did not have to worry about on our wedding day it was the DJ and music. Dave and Chris did an amazing job and listened to my fiancee and I every step of the way.

They also did a great job keeping the flow of the day and making sure everything was running smoothly. They have so many cool features and fun ideas for songs/dances.

Words cannot describe how awesome Dave and his team were on our wedding day. Not only did they go above and beyond to work with us as we were planning from out of state, but they added special touches that we will never forget. They were very open and willing to learn new...

I really felt taken care of on a day when things are so crazy. We met Dave at my brother's wedding 4 years ago and we hope to see him around at future weddings!

Choosing Big Time Productions is the way to go when selecting a DJ that will really get your guests out on the dance floor. They interact with the crowd instead of just playing music and this is what makes it a memorable occasion. They are the best!
