We were so happy with the services Tone Productions provided us for our wedding in September 2013. Louie and Dana went above and beyond what we expected right from the start. When I, the bride, first arrived at our wedding venue, Dana met with me right away and was ready to do anything that I needed from her. Before the ceremony was about to start my mom realized she left hew shawl down in the banquet room where she was mingling with guests. Dana was on top of it and ran down from the bridal suite to find the shawl and bring it back to my mom.
Dana and Louie were in contact the whole time before the ceremony which was key for the ceremony going off without a problem. I had no worries that everyone else was in place and I was able to walk down from the bridal suite w/o being seen before the ceremony.
After the ceremony we moved to cocktail hour where Louis played all our requested songs. It was a short cocktail hour for my husband and I b/c we were busy getting photos out of the way. Before I knew it we were being called up the bridal suite to getting ready to be introduced. Dana came up right away with myself, my mom, and my sisters. She even helped my sister bustle my dress! While up there I made a comment to one of my bridesmaids that I didn't really get to try any of the appetizers, and before I knew it Dana was in the bridal suite with two plates full of the appetizers for us!
During dinner the music was great! Louie even helped my sisters out with their maid of honor speech by playing the instrumental from The Fresh Prince while they rapped their speech together. It was hilarious and all my guests were talking about it for the rest of the evening!
After dinner the party started! After the traditional 1st dance, father/daughter dance, and mother/son dance Louie packed the dance floor for the rest of the night. We gave him some songs that we really wanted played and he also mixed in what he thought would keep people on the floor. Guests of all ages from my husbands grandparents to his 8 year old cousins were on the dance floor all evening. Dana kept us informed of the nights events (garter and bouquet toss, etc.) and the night ran so smoothly!
We couldn't of asked for better service and would recommend Tone Productions to anyone planning a wedding.
Thanks Louie and Dana (and Tone Productions) for a night that we'll never forget!!!!

They were awesome. My dj had everyone on the dance floor all night. Played awesome songs and really listened to our requests. I liked that they had 2 djs. They were really good and I would recommend them.

We first met Dan when we were at a friend’s wedding in Chicago. Him and his team did such an amazing job that we decided we had to have them DJ our wedding in Forresthill CA. We were able to do all of our planning meetings via video conference, and he worked with our other vendors and coordinated everything! We didn’t have to worry about a thing because he had everything covered. When the wedding day finally came Dan and his team did such an amazing job!! The music was absolutely perfect and Dan did an awesome job being the MC. All of our guests were asking where we found such an awesome DJ!!

My husband and I went with Tone Productions for our wedding and could not have made a better choice. Not only was their planning website user friendly and extremely organized, but our DJ Spiro kept in close contact and worked with us even though we live 3 hours away. He made recommendations on things that he knew would help us be a little less stressed on the big day and even knew the venue like the back of his hand which definitely makes the difference. I would recommend them to anybody looking for a high quality dj service for a great price thats worth every single penny.

Dave was our DJ for our wedding and did an awesome job! He had everyone dancing all night!
We were in contact with Dave a lot through our planning which was fantastic! He had a timeline and made sure everything went as planned. They were even in touch with our photographer and they worked so well throughout the reception to make sure everything was capture and music was perfect! I would definitely recommend Tone Productions because it shows they love what they do! Thanks again Tone Productions!!

Used Tone Productions for our June 2014 wedding. Spiro and Justin did a terrific job the day of and everyone else was easy to work with up until our wedding. We got a great deal with the travel to the city fee removed since we saw them at a bridal expo over the summer and got a free seating arrangement scroll thrown in too. They were great about using our request list and their online system was super easy to work with. Reasonably priced as well!

We used Tone Productions as our wedding DJ and they were amazing. Spero was the DJ that we worked with to set up our website/planner and also the main DJ at our wedding. He was great to work with, had lots of good suggestions when we were stumped on what songs to use, and was very professional. He pulled double duty as the DJ and master of ceremonies; announcing the wedding party, cake cutting, etc... He kept the party fun and was very accommodating of special request. We had a choreographed 1st dance and he made sure it went off without a hitch. He made sure we were ready, found and bought the correct version of the song before hand, and faded out when we finished the dance, even though we didn't give him any forewarning. Most impressive was that his assistant had our whole wedding event schedule and info with him and helped coordinate the Bridal Party. I would highly recommend Tone.

Tone Productions was a pleasure to work with and played a big part in our reception running so smoothly. Their equipment is current and was able to fill our big reception hall with such clear music. Their uplighting helped brighten up the atmosphere in the room. Their staff was so helpful from the beginning. Our DJ, Dave (& his assistant Kevin!) were both so fun to have at the reception and did a great job mixing music fluidly. They played the crowd and had the dance floor filled all night long! They were able to make changes to our line-up on the spot in order to play the crowd's vibe better. As far as the actual music goes, Tone has an easy way to make lists and draft out orders online so meetings are productive and well planned out. If online planning isn't your thing, they can also go through this whole process with you. We would recommend Tone Productions to anyone looking to have an event that runs smoothly but also is a BLAST!!

I normally do not write reviews as much as I should. Although, I had to take the time to review Tone Productions. We had a VERY SMOOTH and FLAWLESS experience with the entire company. If you are on the fence with who you should use as a DJ, you can stop looking right now! We had meetings with Sparrow, who was so nice and made everything so simple, it was a no brainer we were going to use them. When we made it to the wedding day, Dan was there with his assistant (also an amazing guy!) and he did so much more for us than just play music. Everything was customized exactly the way we wanted it and music transitioned beautifully. They both went over timing with us the entire night and made sure to explain each event in our reception so we knew what we were doing. Dan even made sure we got to eat cocktail appetizers when we were taking pictures! All of our guests said the music was at a perfect volume during dinner and was extremely classy. Our guest are still commenting on how professional they were. We were worried a DJ might be corny and annoying and they were the exact opposite. I was beyond impressed. If we ever need a DJ again in the future, I will not even hesitate to give them a call. We are customers for LIFE!
Thank you to everyone at Tone Productions!

On our November 9th wedding, Kevin and Tom were wonderful! They were basically our reception coordinators! They made sure the transition from the cocktail hour to dinner went smoothly, guests were made aware of photo booth, late night snack, candy bar, etc., and announced the shuttles to get everyone home safely. The dance floor was packed the whole night. There was music for everyone...my 20 something friends and my 80 something grandparents all were commenting that they loved the music! Couldn't recommend them more!

Great sound, great abilities to personalize your entire night of music. Even when their speaker blew out, people were having so much fun they kept singing and dancing throughout the 4 minutes of no music!
Kind of high priced, but honestly the time and customer service, along with the personlization website was worth it.

Spero, at Tone Productions, did an excellent job having the night run smoothly and played fun and great songs. Everyone had a great time.

The staff and website was very helpful. It was very easy to use the website at our convenience, so we did not have to go into the office often. They use two DJs which is very helpful throughout the night.

We actually heard about Tone Productions when we were walking through a Bridal Expo. We gave them a call within the following week to meet them and talk about their services. We had a meeting with Tom Tulloch, who after we sat and talked, said to go home and think about it. We didn't even make it around the block when we knew we wanted to work with him and the company. They kept in touch with us throughout the year, making sure we were doing ok and if we had any questions. About 3 1/2 weeks prior to our wedding date, we met with Dave Stripling to finalize song choices and answer any questions. My father had this crazy idea about doing a father-daughter first dance mash up. When I asked Dave about it, he asked me my song choices and he could mix it for us. I was stunned! Needless to say, my father was extremely excited!
When he came to our wedding day, Tom was there making sure everything was running smooth. From intros, our 1st dances, dinner music and the rest of the evening. I must say. The father-daughter dance definitely did get the crowd going!! Once the floor opened up, it was packed the entire night!!!
Thank you again, Tom & Dave, for an amazing and definitely an evening we will never forget!!!

I used Spero from Tone Productions for my DJ services for the day of my wedding. Spero was very diligent in responding to any of my emails and seeking me out when he needed information from me in order to get things together for the wedding. With my package from Tone, I received two DJs for the day of my wedding which was essential because that ensured that there was no gaps in music the entire night. Spero also was did all the music for the wedding ceremony as well as the reception. I also added a GOBO which is your name in lights on the dance floor to my package. I had a custom logo made and it turned out great! I loved working with this company and would suggest it to everyone!!

I was very exited about our DJ services going into our big day. But after everything and when we were talking about our wedding the dj was just average. The sonds we wanted played durning the evening were not played our dj was very stressed and seemed like he was aggrivated with some of our guests. I would not pend the amout of money again with the services we received.
