    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!!!!

    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!!

    Awesome experience!

    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!
