James Traut - And Big Fish Music Productions
Big Fish Music Productions was an idea started back in November 2006 but came to be in March 2009. After my best friends 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 friends 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 a total of 11 weddings for the year with 5 weddings currently booked for 2011 as of September 7, 2010, 3 Relay for Life’s, and a half dozen block parties.
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!
