Joel Lopez (Aka Dj Big J)

Born on November 6 in San Juan P.R. and raise in Toa Baja, Levittown. At the age of 5 he started having an interest in music by learning how to play the piano only by ear. Having no music knowledge what so ever he grabs a guitar and continued his interests in music. His parents notice his skills and place him with a music instructor. He learns a lot about the essence of music and continued his journey in other aspects of it. At the age of 13 he was offered a spot in a school band playing the trumpet, trombone, tuba & drums. At age of 18 he was more interested in being a radio announcer. He worked, as a “freelance” in a few of them but music, was in his blood and he start “djing”. Making a fusion between “Mcing” & "Djing” he got a lot of respect in the Night Clubs industry playing in clubs and pub’s like: St Mick’s, Area 51, Island Jamaica, Club Babylon, Shannon’s Pub to name a few. But he wanted to expand to a different crow and that’s went he start working in an entertainment company. In 2002 he started playing at Wedding’s, quinceaneros, bar mitzvah and rocking each one of them. With his “Mcing & Djing” skills he kept the attention of Event’s/Wedding’s Coordinator’s who ask him to play in all sorts events. In 2006 he started his own company call Big J Music Services with the help of his family, friends and all the coordinators who supported him.

My wife and I appreciate Big J so much! He took the vibe we were going for, and exceeded the destination wedding expectations! Our guest had a ball! As people of color, we were concerned about the type of music we wanted to be played. Hip Hop and R&B. And was a little concerned that the West coast music I am used to could meet the East Coast vibe my wife is used to. But Big J made it happen! His energy is amazing, and I am so happy we had him for our wedding and reception Thank you J!!

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!

I would like to say that I chose Big J music services for my wedding based on the reviews and the fact that he is an MC as well. I wasn't able to book him for the day of and so he offered services by DJ Archie. Ok, fine...he did have good reviews. Then a few weeks before the wedding after I emailed him so we could figure out plans for the day of he then notifies me that there will be another DJ named DJ Ment that will be taking over our event. Ok, change of plans now. On the day of the wedding DJ Ment had everyone dancing during the reception, this is great, but when we were introduced on to the dance floor the intro was played longer than expected and I had to ask the photographer to cue him for the first dance. The night goes on and the bouquet toss was never announced and then later on it was time to cut the cake for dinner and no introduction was done or song was played, another special moment that was missed. There was also a song played that had foul language and I had specifically requested not to have any music with gross language played during the reception. When I notified Big J of the discrepancies he told me that I should've hired a wedding planner so these moments would've been cued to the DJ, I was appalled by that comment. I spent hours filling out a form provided by Big J. The forms were for the ceremony and reception in which I had to choose songs and specify the time for each event that was to occur during the evening. Very disappointed in all of these discrepancies. If I had known that DJ Ment required someone to cue him I definitely would've assigned someone in the wedding party to take care of that. It was never communicated to me. DJ Ment did apologize for this and he did help provide a projector for my mother's screen show. I believe this is one of those times when a business is overloaded and a client is overlooked. Nonetheless I am still very disappointed in how the events played out.

Joel, aka Big J, was a fantastic DJ at our wedding. First and foremost, I have to say he was one of my favorite vendors to work with in that his communication was fantastic. Very responsive, very timely, and very good at making appropriate suggestions. This is shockingly rare in PR!
He gave us all the options we could want, but we kept it simple and gave him about 5 songs for certain set dances (1st dance, entrance, cake cutting, etc.) and asked him to just be the man and take care of the rest. And take care of the rest he did. Cocktail and dinner music was a great mix of songs at low volume in the background that everyone recognized... I recall thinking to myself, "wow, this guy is nailing the background music," which sounds stupid, but I hadn't heard some of those songs for years - perfect pairing. And when it came time to get the party started, he had the dance floor going all night long. I was concerned with an older mostly family crowd that it was going to be tricky to get people out there, especially for more than a few songs, but hot damn Big J had the entire wedding dancing non-stop, beyond our wildest expectations. He was also quite flexible, and took guest recommendations, etc. no problem.
In addition to DJ, he was also our Master of Ceremonies, and as a big guy with a big personality, this was clearly also a slam dunk.
On the technical side, he provided the up-lighting, moved mountains to find a white dance floor for us, and set up up with the 'platinum package' which was a very classy setup.
This guys a pro, highly recommend.
As a grain of salt, I don't just blanket 5-star people on my reviews as I find its very uninformative, so don't read into it... but honestly I was having a hard time not five starring him in every category.

Where to even begin?! Being from NYC and planning a wedding in Puerto Rico can be stressful but after meeting Joel we were so delighted to know we were in good hands. He kept the dance floor going all night and played off the guests’ vibes as he selected music. I had a huge list of songs I wanted him to play but time get away from me and I never sent him our list. I only sent him the specific ceremony and reception songs. I was nervous bc I had put so much time into the music I wanted I was worried we wouldn’t get a mix of artists we like. BOY WAS I WRONG! He blew me away with his professionalism, huge selection of music and willingness to accommodate guest request. I HIGHLY recommend Joel for any event. I’m so pleased with how the evening went and a large part of that is because he’s amazing at what he does!

Puerto Rico is alive and well!! I just returned from Puerto Rico where my daughter had her destination wedding. We first met with Joel a year prior and immediately fell in love with him! His knowledge of music and how to read a crowd is unbelievable. He is a true professional. Joel played all of the songs my daughter requested and even played some of the old Italian must-haves. DJ Big J played non-stop music from the moment cocktail hour started until the last song of the evening. There were no down-times whatsoever. His transition from one song to another is impeccable. Joel had everyone on the dance floor all night. Even my husband who doesn't dance! We had such a great time with him. If you are planning a wedding or any event in PR that requires a DJ, DJ Big J (Big J Music Services) is your man. You will not be disappointed. So happy our paths crossed and hope to see him again some day when I revisit the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.

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.
