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. Today he is one of the best Club/Wedding /dj/mc on the island. Read less

What a great DJ for our entire wedding! We used him for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He was by far the most responsive vendor we used, which was very helpful in planning a destination wedding. He also did our up-lighting at the reception which was beautiful and extremely helpful. Our guests can't stop talking about how great our DJ was. He was so helpful, flexible, and interactive during our reception. Overall, we highly recommend him and couldn't be happier with his service!

Joel was one of our favorite vendors. We recently got married at La Concha hotel in PR. In being from NY and having our taste in music, we thought finding the right DJ and MC in PR to meet our needs would be a challenge. Joel really and truly made our wedding exactly what we envisioned. He is a great listener, played the songs we selected, followed our agenda, and really understood us. Many of our guests thought he just as amazing as we did. For anyone in doubt, I would highly recommend Joel. He is amazing at what he does as both a DJ and MC and executes flawlessly. We had an amazing wedding and many thanks go to Joel for carrying our night through. The DJ/MC really and truly is the heart of the party, and with Joel - you are in the right hands.

If you are looking for a DJ - you can stop looking now. I cannot say enough nice things about Joel. He was very responsive, professional, talented and so kind! I found him through my wedding planner (we did a destination wedding) and thank GOODNESS we did!!! He was a big reason our wedding was such a huge success. From the minute the first song started, our ENTIRE wedding of 75 guests (yes, ALL 75 people) were dancing. This lasted for about an hour and a half - and would have lasted longer if people didn't get tired from dancing so much! :) We had a lot of people comment about how much people were dancing. Every song he played was spot on and another future bride at my wedding asked if I could send her a list of songs he played so she could play them at her wedding. He played all the songs on my request list and put them in the perfect order. My guests were about 50% 50+ and 50% 22-28 and neither age group was dancing more than the other! Joel was so much fun! My guests are still talking about him. Seriously- you want him as your DJ. THANK YOU JOEL!!!!!!!!! :)

Joel was an awesome DJ. I just got married this past Memorial Day and selected Joel due to his very positive reviews and he did not disappoint. He was very easy to get in touch with, responding within just a few hours of contacting and he made the reception so fun. There was a vast array of different age groups at the wedding and all of them raved about what a great selection of music Joel choose to play!

We absolutely loved DJ Joel. He was very responsive and helpful pre-wedding. During the ceremony he absolutely killed it. Our guests never danced so hard. His positive energy and professionalism rivaled any DJ around. We highly recommend working with him.

Big Joel was the DJ for my daughter's destination wedding in Puerto Rico. He had reasonable prices and did an excellent job! He played music that got the whole crowd dancing all night. I never dance and I danced the entire time. He provided uplighting that made the reception look amazing. He skyped with us anytime we wanted to before the wedding. He had forms for us to complete before the wedding so everything would run smoothly which it did. He had a great personality and all our guests had fun.

Joel was awesome! We worked hard on our playlist and Joel was on point.
He also created a mix to my father and daughter dance and added unique ceremony songs I requested. He was super patient and responsive to all our questions throughout the entire process.
Our wedding planner, Maria Lugo, had warned me that he was the best DJ on the island! She was right!
Joel got the party started exactly when it should have and let's just say I spent most of our reception on my feet jammin to his mixes!
My husband and I are big music fans and are very happy with Joel's services.
Oh and Joel, gracias por tocar Tululu! Mi familia se sorprendieron y les encantaron a bailar una canción Nica! Gracias Joel!

Joel aka DJ Big J is a true professional from the very start. We had a Persian/Puerto Rican wedding at the Antiguo Casino in San Juan on Valentine's Day. Joel had the whole wedding dancing from 8pm till 2am (pretty much when the security made us leave). He was able to mix the Persian music we provided him with Spanish music and kept everyone happy. He has top notch equipment and a very professional demeanor. He is bilingual as well so helps if your doing a destination wedding and your spanish isn't strong. Joel even set up a slide show for us with a projector at the last minute. I even forgot to get my flash drive with my music on it from him and he sent it to me the next day! Definitely we highly recommend him if you want to have a wedding that you and your guests will be talking about for many years after!

Joel was AMAZING!!! Such a professional!! The only vendor who was NOT on island time!!! For a bride who is handling it ALL herself this was such a breathe of fresh air!!!! Thank you Joel!!! Joel was recommended to me by wedding planner. He has great packages at reasonable prices. We spoke several times on the phone. He even changed my plan when we realized we needed additional equipment and still managed to give me a great deal!! I LOVE JOEL!!!! He was so pleasant, responsive and energetic!!! We finalized our most important songs the week of the wedding gave him direction on the type of music we liked and he took care of the rest. I was dancing ALL NIGHT!!! And so was everyone at the wedding....older, younger EVERYONE!!! We danced until the very last song!!!!

I have not a bad thing to say about Joel!

THANK YOU THANK YOU JOEL!!!!!

Big J was such a success! We had some unconventional requests from a friend playing the guitar during our procession to random songs during the reception. He played the songs that we requested and songs that our guests requested. He was also REALLY good at picking up songs that did not provoke a good crowd and immediately changed it without anyone noticing. He learned our group's music personality and made sure that everyone had a BLAST!

One recommendation-maybe Word Doc the music wishlist sheet? The PDF was really hard to make changes to. Otherwise, everything was just perfect!
