Ugh, the thought of doing any public playout from a phone.  You just know it's going to get a call or notify of a calendar item or something else you've forgotten to disable sounds for at the worst moment.

Laptops are bad enough, but have the redeeming feature of being quite good at rapid-fire, looping and overlapping sound effects.  Not really relevant for a funeral.

A CD and player combination that's been tested is generally trustworthy, and reasonably immune to user confusion.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Bring back the ghetto blasta, that's what I say. A C90, a small mountain of D cells, and a potential outbreak of white-boy breakdancing.

(My iphone silences notifications and calls if I'm listening to tunes, they only show on-screen. I thought that was normal. There's probably a setting.)

I did the music today for my mother-in-law’s funeral. I was seriously stressed out at the thought of it going wrong. This was not helped by a track listing that stretched from Dexy’s to the Birdie song, with a lot of ABBA, a sprinkling of Rod, a dash of Agadoo, a bit of Patsy Cline on the side, and a couple of Irish reels to even things out a little. And Spirit In The Sky. It went well. Technology involved was an iPod and a pair of Bose computer speakers. I needed a very large drink when it was all done. Goodnight Eileen.

... a track listing that stretched from Dexy’s ... Goodnight Eileen.

Of course!

... a dash of Agadoo ...

That I was not expecting.

Glad it all went well, Robh, including the very large drink.
