Providing the popular iPod DJ Service along with Bose speaker systems which provide clear, quality coverage of your reception area. Together the two give you a reception with your own personal touch and provide you with great sound and an elegant look. With our iPod DJ service you can choose the very simple affordable do-it-yourself basic service or one of our upgraded services where we can provide an MC to make announcements and play the music from the iPod and/or provide the player and the music.

iPod DJ Systems!
This is our most popular rental. With the use of an iPod, digital music player, or a laptop pre-programmed with your playlists for the party you are in control…Just Press Play!
We hook up your player to our Bose speaker system, add a microphone and simple to use controls for the music and microphone and away you go. Best of all iPod DJ systems start for as little as $200!

Just Press Play Productions...www.justpressplaypro.com or (224) 232-7822



We offer two different types of iPod DJ service.

Basic Service: You provide the iPod, digital music player, or CD player and designate one or more people to press play and pause on your player and turn on the microphone when needed. We will deliver and set-up the Bose speaker systems, connect your player and instruct the designated people how to use them (takes 15 minutes). You use the speaker systems as long as you need for no additional charge. This service starts at $200 for parties under 150 and for parties larger than 150 it starts at $300. This is the most affordable package.

Basic Service with MC Service: Similar to our Basic service except we supply an emcee to make announcements and operate your player for you so you don’t have to designate someone. This service is just $30 per hour charge for the emcee in addition to the rental charge. Still very affordable and leaves less for you to have to worry about.

Wireless Microphones: These are perfect for weddings. They make announcements and toasts easy as you can carry the mic anywhere in the room and turn it on when you need it and turn it off when you are done with just the push of a button. They rent out for $50 for the entire evening.

Light Shows: These add movement and excitement to your dance floor.

The Basic Light Show: Two colored dancing light fixtures on a stand, this rents out for $50.

The Deluxe Light Show: Two colored dancing light fixtures, a strobe light and a mirror ball effect light on one stand, this rents out for $100.

The White Light Show: A Mirrored ball effect light and a strobe light. This is for those who don't want any colored lights on their dance floor and rents out for $50.

The Mirrored Ball effect light rents out for $40 or can be added to any package for an extra $10.


Musicians: If you are having musicians playing for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or even during the reception, we can provide amplification for them as well. We can provide a separate PA, microphones, microphone stands, music stands, mixer with reverb, direct inputs etc. You can have the musician’s call us and we can take care of all their needs. This will save you $100 or more off of their price in many cases.


If you would like to give me a call or email me with additional information I can give you better prices and customize it for your needs.

Just Press Play was exactly what we needed- Jeff was really easy to work with, always quick to respond to emails and super organized (he sends you a detailed questionnaire a couple weeks before the wedding that was very helpful). Our day-of MC, Miguel, did a great job as well. Definitely worth the cost to hire an MC rather than ask one of our friends to man the music. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

My fiance and I initially planned to DIY the music for our wedding, but quickly realized that we didn't want to deal with the logistics of setting up sound equipment and designating a friend to man the iPod. Jeff at Just Press Play saved the day with his MC service! We were able to choose all the songs for our wedding and Jeff handled all the details the night of. He was incredibly responsive throughout the process and took the time to call me to discuss to the flow of the party, rules for taking requests, and other details. If you're picky about music and/or on a budget, Just Press Play Productions is the perfect choice!

Seriously fantastic! What an affordable and reliable option for fantastic music. We were nervous about putting together our own playlists for the wedding, but Just Press Play provided great information for compiling awesome playlists and our DJ Patrick did an excellent job MC'ing for the evening. We had several compliments afterwards that the music was great and it was truly a team effort!

We highly recommend Just Press Play after using them for our wedding. In the planning process Jeff was amazing. He always responded to my emails right away and was extremely helpful. Our mc, Phil, was great as well! Our dance floor was packed the entire night. We chose all of the songs ourselves but Phil did an excellent job mixing the songs to keep the dance party going strong!

Just Press Play was great! We had Jeff as our EMCEE, and his voice is like something you'd hear on the radio. It was so professional and everything he said into his microphone was clear and concise. We had the I-Pod DJ set up where I brought in two I-Pods filled with my music. We had a portable speaker system set up in the dinner area, and the main speaker set up by the dance floor. The sound quality was amazing, and every time I asked him to play a certain song for me off of my list he did so right away. This is a great company, and I highly recommend them.

Just Press Play Productions responded with the following comments:

Yes, all of our MC's have good clear distinct voices, this is not just true for Jeff alone. This is one of the key points we focus on when employing MC's with Just Press Play Productions. And the true rock star of Just Press Play is the Bose Speaker Systems.

THANK YOU! Just Press Play Productions was fantastic! Jeff manned the portable speakers and wireless mike perfectly from making sure to scout out our ceremony and receptions site at our friends estate before the wedding to make sure that we would have all the appropriatie gear to accommodate our needs to flawlessly setting up at the ceremony site and relocating to the reception site all with grace behind the scenes that no one knew that it was the same speakers used for both locations. The sound quality and volume was perfect and Jeff did an amazing job DJ-ing the random collection of music that we provided to him on our laptops in Spotify playlist with talented ease. THANKS for helping make our special day so memorable!

We booked Just Press Play Productions upon recommendation of one of our friends, and it turned out to be the biggest difference-maker of our event.

At first, we thought, we only need an iPod with our playlist. So we ordered that. Then we thought, "hey, we could use a wireless microphone for our toasts." So we tacked that on, too. And then we thought, "hey, they offer a DJ to man the music and playlists for the event at a very reasonable price. Why not add that on, too?" And that has made all the difference.

A couple of weeks before the wedding, we came into contact with Jeff Ilardi from JPP Productions. We laid out every important detail about our event, and he took note of every scheduling minutiae.

The two big impacts that Jeff and JPP Productions had was
1) Providing exactly the music we wanted, when we wanted, at the perfect volume
2) Often, during the event, Jeff would essentially become our on-site event coordinator, coming up to me and reminding me that "in one minute, you have your toasts coming up!" or "Did you want to cut your cake right now, as scheduled?" We found out that, during the wedding, it is too easy to lose track of time and timelines, and Jeff was absolutely professional and helpful with keeping everything on track all along the way.

So, if you're considering hiring Just Press Play Productions for your event -- stop wondering and just book them. They will be responsive, prompt, and professional.

Just Press Play Productions is PERFECT for all weddings!
Jeff is very professional and timely in communication. He did a phenomenal job!
You choose and provide all your own music - so you know it will be good. JPPP provides helpful guides on how to organize your playlists and a day-of order of events document, where you indicate how you want things announced/played/etc.
I highly recommend JPPP!

We chose JPP for our wedding July 5. Alan was our MC. It was a fantastic value. For $550 we got speakers set up both inside the reception room plus outside on the attached patio, and Alan was able to use those same speakers to provide our music during the ceremony. We created our playlists on Spotify, met with Alan a couple of weeks before the wedding to go over what we wanted, and he managed the playlists on the day of. He was still able to take requests from guests and we loved that we picked all our songs - the bartender even told us that it was the best music he had heard at a wedding. Our wedding was a cocktail reception immediately following the ceremony, so we had songs for before the ceremony, a playlist for after the ceremony which was mellow music, and then dance songs for later in the evening. We were so pleased with it. He also made announcements, such as our introduction, the cake cutting, the first dance, and when new food items were available for guests. Thank you Alan and Just Press Play!
