Initially launched in 1989, BIG! Entertainment had an initial focus to provide quality mobile entertainment and audio support for special events. Although wedding receptions were a primary focus, a close second were Nightclub & Bar shows. That said, many establishments wanted to advertise us on their marquee outside, but often did not have enough letters for the word “entertainment”.
Many times it was a train wreck in substitution of numbers for letters, or worse. One wise club manager asked me “why not just put djBIG?” The rest is history! About the same time I was also asked what BIG stands for and I replied “in order to survive in this business, I will need to have faith. Therefore, “BIG” stands for Believe in God. If you’re not of faith, then view this as Believe in Good. In short, things have worked out by focusing on the positives. Each year, we take thousands of people to a place where they can enjoy celebrations and events at another level of quality and professional delivery.
Cheering crowds, full dance floors and organized events are typical for us. Dependability, experience, education and customer support are the pillars for each event. Put it all together and experience your Rock Star moments. Averaging 170 solo performances per year and having performed in 23 states (so far), djBIG! knows how to rock the party.
Creating next-level experiences at each event, our intent is to develop a positive experience momentum. Every day life can sometimes smother individual growth and happiness. By releasing that mundane part of life, our hope is to push the positive interaction into a life enhancing experience. We find that attendees to our shows take that positive charge forward in life. Not only creating memories, but also sharing them with other people.
Nationwide. 23 States covered in 28 years so far. Experiences create learning tools: each performance on the road offers a chance to learn more about geographic cultures, music styles and people. We also gladly embrace referrals! Our “home area” of service is basically Wisconsin/Michigan but again not limited to just to just those two States.
30 years back, Disc Jockeys were just starting to become popular for weddings. With that popularity came the “up-sell” and the “would you like fries with that” sales pitch. Rather than nickel and dime a customer, we offer an all-inclusive show. We bring as much as is needed to put on a next level production. We are experienced in setting up a 30′ stage (like at Riverside Ballroom or KI Center in Green Bay, WI) or creatively making a 12′ area work at a smaller property. Weddings include uplighting when space is available. In short, you get it all!
Completely depends on your event. It also can depend on other factors such as location, requested date and specifics. Averaging 180 events a year, djBIG is the king of variety application(s). All events are booked first come-first serve. We only book one event per calendar day so you are securing the best, not just a random DJ/MC.
Yes and with considerable experience in making it right! From basic audio to microphone placement for your soloist or musicians, we have you covered. Best part is that if your ceremony is on-site of reception, the ceremony audio is included.
For going on 30yrs, our Photo Booth has been on the dance floor! The trend for 2017 is coming back to that with more than 50% of Brides and Grooms setting up a photo “area” with a few props and backdrop. It’s not like we don’t want more money but djBIG focuses on quality entertainment, the same goes for Photo Booth needs. Rather than be the master of all things and delivering a diluted product offering, we prefer to refer you to the best of the Photo Booth vendors. They simply deliver a better experience for your guests. Remember: Photobooths are much like a DJ service. They equipment can be the same but it’s the PEOPLE (staffing) who make it a great experience.
We typically meet with all our clients and plan accordingly. We use full-file format (.aiff) music vs mp3’s. They simply sound better! Weddings, school events and family functions use clean-edit music. We don’t stream, use YouTube, etc. We also don’t use your guests telephones for a number of reasons, quality being the first! After 30 years in music and being active in record pools and much more, we have your music as a high priority and know what works.
Absolutely. djBIG is college degreed in communication, specializing in presentation. Following college, he performed fine art auctions for Corporate Art International, the World’s largest fundraising art auction company. Traveling the United States, BIG! defined the art of formal presentation. Some events have a designated MC already in place. Our intent is not to replace them but assist them in providing the best experience for your guests. Either way, we cover this need in our pre-planning meeting with you about 30 days out from the event date.
100% Yes!! We have split the stage with hundreds of musicians, acts and talented artists. The largest being the Beach Boys (performing their tour managers wedding). djBIG has many years of band experience prior to the 1st day as a DJ and plays drums, guitar and cowbell (we always need more cowbell!).
How can every DJ be “THE” best? Some pay for premium listings on search engines, others fill the ballot boxes for awards claiming victory by a paid third-party source. We primarily rely on referrals at djBIG.com. However, we are always looking to find more people seeking BETTER. We are experienced, educated and groomed to deliver next-level service and entertainment. We look forward to earning your business and creating a positive experience. Party on! Hands UP!
Hi Pat. Thank you for a fabulous wedding reception on Saturday night. The kids show was amazing!! We couldn't have asked for a more professional and knowledgable DJ for our event. Thanks again, we will be back.
"Thanks Pat, great job with the ceremony and the reception!" The kids and the grandparents were wired until the end of the night. You were the talk of the gift opening!! Thank you so much!
Thank you for creating the most memorable & "partying" reception! We had so many compliments from our relatives to our college friends. The kids you guys worked with are still wired and want to do it again.
