Hired DJ Sound Production for a party because they specialized in Karaoke, well they had next to nothing to choose from which is a big bummer as that was a huge reason to hire them. Our guests were disappointed cause every song they picked he did not have.
If you want a DJ that plays music they are good for that.
A reply to our review. We tried to call Veronica after the event to follow-up and get her opinion and didn't receive a call back and then saw this review. Although we appreciate the compliment on on the music playing part, I would like to touch on the karaoke portion since that is what is in question.
After talking with the DJ, he did note that some requests were made that we didn't have. However, the guests did find songs that they wanted to sing and sung them.
We have over 55,000 titles. One of the largest databases of karaoke on the midwest and a huge investment. However, not all artists release their songs to be remade into karaoke and sung by others. If we make them, it's a copyright violation and being a properly registered company with the music industry and the State of Minnesota, we do not infringe on those copyrights. With millions upon millions of songs out there, we can't have them all unfortunately and as every karaoke event goes, there will be some titles that just aren't made into karaoke versions. Some artists release them for a short period of time, and then stop the release making the selections hard to obtain.
We get asked if we can pull from YouTube among other online video sources. WE can not as we do not have permission to use these videos "for profit". They want us to pay for them. That would be copyright. So just because they are on youtube, doesn't mean their for sale. We are limited to the sources that we have to purchase legal music from.
On the night in question, our DJ stated people did sing, those that wanted a song that we didn't have, picked other ones they wanted. He didn't get anyone telling him otherwise that night or any concerns were brought up. He also stated that he did have the party dancing (which is the positive review part). We also have our complete karaoke list on our website to view publicly before anyone purchases our services.
I'm sorry to hear that guests were disappointed in not having selections that they may have wanted to sing. We will keep adding to our database of karaoke songs to make sure that we maintain the biggest database of any company in the midwest. Thank you!
I was very impressed with DJ Sound's professionalism. Though we did not chose them based on price? I was impressed with their business practices and quick responses. They would be a great company for any event!
Thank you for your outstanding service! We searched for the best Minnesota wedding DJ in Minneapolis and out of all the DJ's we heard from, this company was hands down a no brainer. They had so many karaoke songs and even got special ones that we asked for! The online music planner was great for picking our songs and adding to the DO NOT PLAY list they had. We also were able to see them at their weekly venue Stars & Strikes and loved the karaoke there that they do. We had a blast all night! Great job!

What can we say but....PERFECT! I've never seen a DJ work do hard before! They knew exactly what to do to make our night happen! They knew what we wanted before we asked him! This was my 2nd wedding. I thought my 1st wedding DJ was great but...not after I saw what this company does and can do. Here's the list me and my husband loved!!
- They allowed us to pick all our music
- The DJ Sound system was PERFECT sounding and was new
- The DJ made sure the photographers, venue, and food was all ontime!
- They emailed us on a regular basis to check in
- I can call them at 10:00 pm which I needed to!
- They kept people dancing all night. And that's not easy with out 60 people.
I definately would recommend them to EVERY Bride and groom having a minnesota wedding.
Great job guys! A night well never forget. Thank you!
We took this task of writing a review on ourselves. We hired DJ Sound Productions with the expectation that all DJ Companies are the same. NOT TRUE. I'll list the highlights below.
- Luke answered the phone for our questions at 10pm
- They had the best sounding equipment (I have a music education in engineering)
- They did play ALL our requests
- The DJ actually followed the format that WE wanted
The work that the DJ put in on the night of our wedding was outstanding! He worked with our people to make sure that dinner was served according to our schedule, that the 1st dance was exactly at the time we wanted, and announcements were done exactly as we wanted them.
What could have been better? We really tried to think of something that could need improvement, we honestly did. Maybe not work so hard and make our wedding coordinator look so bad?? We realized that we didn't even need a wedding coordinator. it was an awesome job done and well deserved tip at the end of the night. Hats off to one of the best wedding DJ's in Minnesota! Thank you for a perfect night!

Tanks Nathan! My DJ said he had a blast! Any referrals get 25% off their wedding package and you get 10% as well! Thanks you and best of wishes in your future!
We hired DJ Sound Productions and their DJ who they call one of two of their best DJs (Headliner DJs), DJ Mike. They claimed that it would be worth the price. We had a budget of $900. However, Mike was $1500. So we thought we'd take the chance and roll the dice to get the best DJ in Minneapolis and Minnesota as they claimed. They had a guarantee in the contract that if they didn't fulfill the contract obligation, we'd get our money back.
What was the result? THE BEST PARTY EVER!! Hell yea! Just like on TV! He was the real deal. I've only herd this stuff on TV. After we had our party, we actually checked out this DJ. Yep...a Star! This company knows what they are talking about!!! When they say the best....I'll never challenge them again. The sound was totally like the clubs sound! Good Bye Cheesy wannabe DJ's in Minnesota, because were stuck on this company. Email me if you want the full story! MeganDawn79@gmail.com
This is my first time working for DJ Sound Productions & Entertainment. We usually have couple parties a year at our house and we were not happy with the past DJ we used, so we decide to go with DJ Sound Productions. We were beyond pleased with the music choice, the equipment and the professionalism. The DJ came early to set up and played a great list of songs for our 80's theme party. We had a big crowd in the dance floor until 2 AM!! I will definitely hire this company again.
Awesome Service! PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT. I just rave about this company. From the moment I landed on their web site to the moment of our last song, miracles happened! High tech company with absolutely everything I could have wanted and more. They made music specially for my walk down the isle. They had all the music we wanted. The owner (Luke) was outstanding and extremely helpful every step of the way. I can't say enough good about this company and making our wedding better than anyone thought. Kudos! I recommend them for EVERY wedding in the Minneapolis Area. Thank you!
Mr & Mrs Geving
Amazing. This company is highTech! Brandon & I got every dollar worth. We searched just about every Minnesota wedding DJ service in Minneapolis and we definitely chose the best. From their way of signing the contracts to the hightech equipment. We didn't want "another I-Pod wedding" or a simple "push play" kind of DJ or the "old guy" hitting on our bride's maids.....again. It was the small things that made this company perfect. From being able to call at 8pm to getting a few small details added on the online planner so that I could add that to my daily plans. No fluff and they pleased a very hard to please group. Outstanding. Thank you!
My name is Scott and my wifes name is Stacey. We used DJ Sound Productions for our New Years Eve party and they did one amazing job. We needed a professional to knock the party out of this world with mixing old school "oldies" to a beat. They did it! Perfectly. I've never seen a DJ so focoused on his music and make music that was so cool, but never herd it done that way before. These are the party guys!
We were skeptical about the reviews. The program said 1 thumbtack job completed, but we contacted three and the reviews are as stellar as they say. So we gave it a go!
We hired them for our Karaoke party in Maple Grove and were VERY impressed. We paid $350 for the 4 hours and asked them to stay for one more. They charged us $50 for the extra hour and we tipped $40.
PROS: The DJ was great in picking music. They had every Karaoke request and a HUGE list of songs. Their sound system was awesome. Their Music planner helped sooo much in planning our night. Our friends were able to also use the planner to request songs pre party. The DJs turn tables were awesome to see him use them.
CONS: (4 star reason) They showed up about 45 minutes earlier than they had told us. The Karaoke book was massive making it hard to look thru all of it and one of the two mic cables went bad, but they did have about 5 backup cables and was replaced in minutes. We are a VERY pick family though.
Would definitely recommend.

I would have all the reviews on here were a "farse". NOPE! They are all true! We hired them for our sweet 16 DJ in Minneapolis at the hotel, and my daughter has the best time and the DJs skills were amazing! He mixed music together so none of it stopped. never once was there a stop in music. Perfect, perfect, perfect. Thank you! A night to remember!

I can not believe how amazing this company is! So many DJ choices, but is what sold us was the fact that they had a written guarantee. Also, they had a resume that matched their statements! Then on the day of the event, it was a marvel to see the system the DJ had. Not to mention the execution of the event was near perfect! As a military family, we are trained to notice detail, and this DJ company has it!!
We used DJ Sound Productions for our wedding reception in Duluth MN on the Lake superior shore for our Ceremony and reception. It was perfect. The ceremony was to the "T", and the reception was played wonderfully. The wind was a factor, but Luke Assured us it wouldn't be, and it wasn't.
Too bad I won't be getting married again because the reception was amazing! We didn't book on this site (Thumbtack), but wanted to write a review where ever we can so everyone can know what an amazing DJ service this is.
You can't afford not to use this company. Attention to detial, planning support, and I even called Luke at 11pm and he answered.
The only kinda neggative thing, they got to the venue way early to set up and contract said "three hours before event time" and we weren't ready for them. But it's better than them being late!
Just like all the rest....5 stars! Our wedding couldn't have been better! Out of all the Minneapolis DJ's, we definataly found the best....but we knew that when we booked them. Worth every penny and our DJ, we actually got a real DJ. Not just some guy with a computer or CD's.
No problems, absoutely perfect. Thank you!
Lander Wedding, Minneapolis
We had them for Karaoke. Embarrassingly, we booked the cheapest DJ on here, and they didn't have what they said they had nor did they communicate. I'd say their name but, I'll review them later. :)
So we had to spend a little more and got DJ Sound Productions & Entertainment almost last minute. They were great and had tons of songs, just about every one we wanted. Our people were very happy! Would definitely recommend and use again!

DJ Sound Productions & Ent. did a fantastic job at our surprise birthday party, they were very professional and courteous. Their equipment was state of the art and sounded great. I would highly recommend them for any party.
Wedding April 28yh, 2012. If you didn't choose this company for your wedding, you lost out big time. My wife and I used them for our ceremony and reception when our Craigs List DJ backed out 1 week before our event! Id name them but, we were told not to. But I think everyone should know this company came last minute and did an awesome job! My parents and family were amazed that we had a DJ with two vynal tables.
Pricing: They didn't require a down payment and let us do cash on the night of the event. We weren't gooing to pay up front with out seeing a DJ set up in the room. we got ceremony and reception all for under $800.
Ceremony: The DJ (DJ Cru) was exactly on his mark with every song.
Reception: They had so many good songs, we didn't have to request a thing. He knew what he was doing!! The other DJ Company, we had to explain everything to and and spell out step for step what we wanted. The fuy we talked to on the phone at DJ Sound Productions.....it was like he already knew what we were going to ask.
Conclusion: We've already booked them for our BIG summer party!

If we could give 10 stars, we would! We searched for months trying to find a good DJ in Minneapolis. We choose DJ Sound Productions & Entertainment for the 4 hour wedding. Absoutely amazing!! We actually got a real DJ! He had his turn tables, and one awesome sound system! Not to mention he kept us informed all night and was very detailed about events going on for the reception. His music selections were perfect! We had 115 people show up and he kept people on the dance floor all night! Song after song we loved it! For about an hour, he did some top 40 dance mixing and it was awesome to watch him do his thing. They were so good, my sister cancelled their DJ and went with DJ Sound Productions. This is one company no one should over look!
