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

Big Joey is the REAL deal. This guy had so much life, excitement and energy the entire day and that is what you need in a DJ. Leading up to the big day, my wife and I had a particular sound we wanted. Old school R&B+ Hip Hop to keep you on your feet all night.

We gave Joey a well thought out list of songs but told him to take it and run with it....and that is exactly what he did. He kept people entertained with his cuts and mixes and he definitely fed off the crowd for what worked. The peak for me was when we told Joey that we wanted to do a tribute to southern hip hop since we, and most of our guests, are from the South. We had songs in mind..... BUT HIS DELIVERY WAS GRADE-A! When your guests say "This felt like we were back in college," you know it was done right. People raved at how much fun they had and a lot can be attributed to Joey for a job well done.

If you want a DJ that can easily adapt, versatile to various audiences, good energy and keeps the crowd going, he is your guy.

If you want the best DJ ever, you need to hire Joel! No joke. We knew we wanted a good DJ but we didn't realize we hired THE BEST! I mean THAT!!! We did a lot of research, spoke to a lot of the locals and professionals and everyone said to hire him. He was the first vendor we hired and WOW we were amazed at his work!!! Joel came over to me at some point and said, "I am about to get this party started. Are you good with that?" Immediately after he had guests out there dancing that NEVER dance! People were getting more excited at every song he played! It kept getting better and better and better. He knows how to read your crowd. People were tearing up the floor! It was humid and it didn't stop people from dancing, sweating and all...he made the reception! I had guests coming over to me saying how amazing he was and wanted his information so they could fly him up to Philly when they needed a DJ. Our friends and family are still talking about him and I have a feeling he will be talked about for a very long time! Thank you for making our wedding reception the best ever!

When I started planning my wedding I was on the fence about using a DJ, thinking it was quite pricy and I could mix music myself. I was swayed by the excellent reviews on Wedding Wire after my wedding planner suggested Big J. Not only does he provide excellent music but his services also include MC services. His online playlist and planner was user friendly and he was responsive, knowledgeable and flexible and worked within my budget. He got everyone dancing young and old. One of the best memories of my wedding will be of my dad dancing to 2Pac - California Love. He kept the party going and made sure everyone had a great time! I had so many compliments about how good the playlist was. If you aren't sure if a DJ is needed, trust me, you won't regret choosing him. Money well spent for the memories he helped create!

Where to start with Joel??? We don’t normally love to dance and had a small group so we were worried we would have a sad, empty dance floor. We didn’t even want a DJ. Our wedding planner assured us that with Big J everyone would dance all night and have a blast. We didn’t believe her. She couldn’t have been more right. He was without a doubt one of the finest vendors we utilized for the wedding. He was so good that I am hesitant to even leave a five-star review as I want to keep him all to ourselves! At so many weddings the “DJ” does nothing more than queue up songs and work his way through a generic playlist. Joel is a true craftsman artfully mixing and weaving a musical narrative for the wedding celebration. His transitions and timing were remarkable and his attentiveness second to none. I’m not even sure if he left his booth for a few minutes at a time. At one point I wanted to go over and make sure he had a break and could eat something!

My fiancé (unbeknownst to me) asked Joel to strive for a subtle James Bond theme. Rather than play the original recordings he actually located some updated recordings by the Las Vegas Philharmonic which were phenomenal. Everyone raved about it! Later during dinner, he provided some light music taking some artistic liberties from our playlist. Finally, during the dancing/celebration hours he really started to shine. The fact that he was able to keep our relatively small group of various ages moving to 2 AM was testament to his abilities. We had left over alcohol because no one wanted to leave the dance floor to get a drink and we had a 60-something electrical engineer dancing with a tie around his head. Enough said. Guest after guest commented the next day how amazing he was and how much fun they had dancing. Two of our guests want to book him for their venue in New Orleans. Joel do you travel? You’d better start because we’re going to be spreading your name on the mainland! Thanks for making our wedding a blast!

There are no words to describe how wonderful Joel is! We were a bit nervous having our Hindu Indian wedding in PR, especially in finding a DJ that would understand our needs, and stay within budget. But Joel put us at ease. He not only was accommodating of last minute changes (especially with the lighting), but was responsive, and got the crowd jumping on the dance floor. More than once were we asked where we found such a great DJ. For anyone having an event in PR, Joel should be your first pick!

Music is such a key component to any event, which is why we did our research when looking for the perfect DJ that would please a very diverse crowd. Our guests traveled from everywhere - New York, Massachusetts, Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Florida-- and the island of Puerto Rico. My husband and I, as well as our guests have been exposed to amazing DJ's, as we've lived and partied in New York, DC and beyond...we even had some DJs and musicians attend our wedding, and EVERYONE-- young and old, those that spoke English and those that only spoke Spanish, I mean EVERYONE talked about how amazing Big J was and how he ROCKED our party. We danced all night! My bridesmaids and I were jumping with four-inch heels on! My mother sweated out her beautiful hairdo and my husband, the groomsmen and all of our friends danced and danced. We completely wore ourselves out, but couldn't stop dancing because Big J kept our party going. We had a few guests say they didn't want our party to end! Folks are still asking us where did we find him; others were sore from all the dancing and some people couldn't remember the last time they danced so much. It was a night to remember.

In addition to the fun party, Joel did an outstanding job of serving as Master of Ceremonies. He was charming, warm and beautifully commanded the attention of our guests -- we had a fun bunch! For our first dance, my husband and I wanted to dance to two songs and Joel was gracious enough to produce a demo for us and it was perfect. During our reception, we wanted to surprise a few of our guests with meaningful songs and such, and he executed these few "shout outs" beautifully. Everyone was touched.

You will not be disappointed with Joel, trust me, I've done the leg work (figuratively and literally). He exceeded our expectations and helped us create a such a memorable night. This is one for the books!
