Our goal here at Big Fish Music Productions is to exceed your expectations and provide quality entertainment to any event. We are based out of the Chicagoland area but we have traveled around the Midwest for events of all types. We specialize in weddings! We are now in the uplighting and photo booth business as well.
Some more personal details about me - it was an idea started back in November 2006 but came to be in March 2009.
After my best friend’s wedding many of my friends came to me and said that I made that party, that I should look into becoming an MC, a DJ. That night Traut Tunes was the name that was thrown around.
It wasn’t until three years later that I decided to invest my time into building this side job. Big Fish Music Productions is a play on my last name Traut and the nick name of Big Fish used by my friends throughout the years.
Things slowly took off in the summer of 2009 with a friend’s wedding and two American Cancer Society Relay for Life’s but in 2010 it has been full speed ahead.
By the time the year is over I will have worked over a total of 250 events.
I am a person who is 100% devoted to making sure that your day is everything you want it to be and more. I will work with you in the months leading up to it to make sure of this. I am high energy, professional, and courteous all at the same time. I also offer something most DJ’s cannot. Someone who can also sing your ceremony. Please feel free to look at the link to You Tube and view me in action!
I look forward to speaking with you about your occasion.
Remember my moto: There is no doubt when you leave it to Traut!

AMAZING- Highly Recommend!
I couldn’t have asked for a better DJ who honestly has become a friend! Communication was AMAZING. Having a COVID wedding was a bit stressful. We had to postpone our wedding, had lots of questions and concerns, and let me tell you.... Big Fish was WONDERFUL!!! They were so accommodating and just the best. My wedding night was the BEST ever! Everyone had such an amazing time. DEFINITELY recommend!!!!Sent on 05/06/2021

The BEST Dj!!!
James was INCREDIBLE to work with! He was extremely flexible and supportive during the COVID changes. He made sure to listen to what and what we didn't want. And the photo booth he set up was SOO much fun! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a fun, accommodating DJ!!Sent on 05/17/2021

James is the best DJ you could hire for your wedding! We had a great experience working with him from day one. James was willing to meet with us several times to go over our song lists. The night of our wedding, he made sure everything flowed smoothly so we were able to have a stress-free reception. James carries so much excitement with him, and it radiated from him as he introduced our bridal party. When it came time for dancing, James had everyone out on the dance floor all night long. We received so many compliments on the music, and our guests truly had a wonderful time. The photobooth was an added bonus, and we still love going through all the pictures that James put into a book for us. Big Fish is affordable and definitely the DJ you want for your wedding. We cannot thank him enough for the incredible evening!
