About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Attention to detail, experience, and award winning DJs. Customer services is so important, but almost every company has to do it. But is what they try to "fake", and almost never succeed at it, is experience. Without experience and knowledge, they wouldn't know what details to have attention to. Without experience, they wouldn't understand the equipment needed to have a flawless performance. Without experience, they wouldn't be able to charge rates that are matched to their qualities developed over time. We stand out because we have accomplished all this and more! We understand everyone has to start out somewhere, but that is what the backyard parties and charity events are for…..NOT your wedding or professional event. Is your DJ Insured? We are! Most venues are now requiring that the DJs become insured. Why? Because those venues are suing customers (you) and patrons for the errors that the DJs make or the guests make. If the DJ doesn't have insurance, it's all on YOUR shoulders! Don't risk it with a DJ that isn't a professional. We have a 1 million dollar policy. Please email for a copy.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

For us, this answer is simple, we like happy customers! This is our goal, and it's what we like most about our job!

    We were very impressed with the DJ. Our guests loved him as did we, but we wish he would've moved things along a little faster. He forgot about the dollar dance until we reminded him and it took awhile for him to get the first dances started.

    I hired them for my daughters Sweet 16 party. DJ CREW was our DJ for the evening. Unfortunately the DJ never once got on the mic to announce the birthday girl or say happy birthday or even play any sort of birthday song.( kind of weird I thought) . He was very hum drum as if he wasn't too excited to be there. I had to go up and ask him to turn his light show on after about 3 hrs of the 4 he was paid for had past. Also many requested songs were never played and when he did it was a very long time after it was requested....like 30 minutes or more. He had his own agenda and stayed staring down at his machine with his headphones on in his own world. I expect a DJ to take control of the evening and keep everyone upbeat and on the dance floor. It's very hard to do when you never once address the crowd....look at them...or even make the person who the party is for feel specialike or acknowledge her in any format. I'm sure all of their DJs aren't like this but it's very unfortunate I got stuck with this one.

    We wanted BIG and we got even BIGGER! The DJ was awesome! He knew how to mix music, make it interesting, and was a true music performer! He actually had a REAL DJ set up. The last DJ we hired claimed he was good. He only brought a computer and....some little gizmo. We thought he was good....untill we saw this DJ from DJ Sound Productions. He mixed video and just about everything. Put dance party was awesome. Next, the sound system! It was HOGE sound, loud, and pounded! We paid extra for massive and they really produced! It was soooo amazing! Everyone danced all night. BEST PARTY EVER!

    We actually got a REAL DJ. We've hired other thumbtack DJ'S before and they were good salesmen....and nothing special compared to this company. He mixed music and did some really cool things with it. Other DJ'S here just brought a laptop which we can do that. But this dj we hired this time made music like we hear on the kdwb friday and sat night dance. We were impressed! Unlike the rest, we will hire this company again!
  • Maya T. Aug 1, 2016
    Their service was amazing....but not tried because of our mistakes. We submitted a playlist to them. Thought our year of wedding music research was sufficient. We told them to stick with it no matter what. Turns out, after 1.5 hours of our play list, all but 25 people left. We panicked, told our DJ that we'll probably go home 3 hours early. He said that's not going to happen. He asked if he could play the songs he knew would make this crowd dance and if he could, he promissed they would stay the remaining three hours. We were desperate and said yes. The first song got everyone out on the dance floor! And then guess what....EVERYONE danced the remaining three hours! We didn't end early! But I guess this is why they are the true professionals with the experience. I haven't been to a wedding where the DJ didn't end early. Infact, the DJ said he hasn't had a wedding end early in over three years and we believe it! This DJ was awesome! It was soooo much fun and saved our wedding night. Definately book these guys....you will NOT regret it.

    DJ was awesome. He was professional and extreemly flexable. He kept the program moving and made it appear seamless. It was an outside wedding that required he move from one spot to another without more than a couple minutes of down-time. He was wonderful. Would definately recommend him to a friend.

    Couldn't have picked a better DJ company. They were very accomidating. Their music selection is amazing and had every song that we wanted at our wedding. The DJ was very professional, on time, and his skill level was much higher than the price we paid for. We are extremely pleased. We've been to many other weddings in the past and haven't seen a better DJ than ours! Go with this company....you won't regret it at all and pleased that you did. We are!

    Thank you for making our wedding on Feb 21st the best! Dave was awesome. Karaoke was the best. He knew exactly what to play when to play and keep both our families dancing. Worth every cent and will definately reccomendations to everyone. Thank you! Steve & Krista.

    We used DJ Sound Productions two weeks ago for our winter wedding. Nothing could have been more perfect and straight forward. After viewing 9 other DJ companies, they stood out and it showed. They had all our music, our timeline was spot on, and they were peofessional. Marc and I are very happy we had them as our wedding DJ and couldn't have picked a better company.

    DJ did not come prepared not having the appropriate equipment and therefore could only play music without lyrics, came only 10 minutes early and was not set up in time, basicly there was no dance because he was unable to do his job due to lack of equipment
    Replied to Jim l. - Feb 16, 2016

    This is our first complaint and 1 star ever, out of 3500 events. As discussed over the phone with Jim, we have immediately taken action and that DJ has been let go after 7 years with our company and 287, 5 star reviews. We also didn't charge you for the event. We have a ZERO tolerance policy and immediate action policy which was taken. The DJ was given appropriate equipment by our company, but his personal equipment was not checked as required by company policy and that is unacceptable. The DJ also never called in to request our back up DJ or back up delivery of equipment and that is also against company policy. Not everyone's perfect and DJ's do have bad days and things go wrong. It takes a tolerant customer to make contact with the DJ company as well to see if there are any other options. When this doesn't happen, nothing can go right but typically blame the DJ company, not the DJ. However, we do not allow our DJ's to have bad days and also demand perfection. We train to prevent this. When that is not achieved, immediate termination is always given and was.

    The DJ was on-time and upon arriving he approached me and discussed our music selection. Our music selection was supplemented with many requests from the younger guests at our reception. The DJ these energetic guests had a great time and gave us complements on our choice of DJ. We were both very happy with our DJ selection and would recommend DJ Sound Productions to others.

    From the time I introduced myself to Luke through the entire process, it was flawless. Our graduation party was a blend of different families, age groups, and personalities...the DJ, David, did a wonderful job. The engineer did a great and efficient set up and take down of the equipment. It was fabulous. I won't ever hire a different company for my future events!

    We LOVED this company! Two months ago, we hired a cheaper DJ from Thumbtack and they backed a week before our wedding. We were so scarred. We didn't want this to happen again. So we went scrambling to find another DJ. Went back to here and we found Luke and his company with a week to go! They put our wedding together in under 1 week and nailed it! Other DJ'S were pushy and demanding...almost to the point of being rude. Other ones were "robot like" kind of like the one we hired, but Luke was professional and VERY informative! We knew this wasn't just a side job, this guy was pro. They had ALL our music that the other guy couldn't get. They had great lights and we had dancers on the dance floor right up until the end. They kept every promiss, and every guarantee was met. Our families were very happy with our decision and that is/was very important to us. And to think we just settled on cheaper....they're not all alike. Everyone knows you get what you pay for, and cutting corners NEVER works. We knew we were taking a risk with the cheap DJ, but everything happens for a reason. I WOULD DEFINATELY RECCOMMEND Luke and this company! DON'T RISK IT and have what happened to us happen to you because this company....may be all booked up when it does!

    Awesome! Our DJ was up and above perfect. They had so many music selections, they allowed me to plan my wedding the way I wanted it. Their DJ was a perfect fit. They did so much during the evening To get and keep things going. The dance floor was packed. The sound was crystal clear and perfect. The lighting was awesome. BOOK THEM! I would....if I was getting married again. Great job!

    We chose DJ Sound because they weren't just a 1 DJ company. We used them for our wedding this weekend And picked them beca use they allowed us to pick our music and have the DJ do just as we wanted. I should say, they hit a home run. We expected a home run because of all the 5 star reviews...and nothing less. They had EVERY song we requested. Out of all the other DJ's we talked to, they were the most educational, informative, professional, and personal. HINT: ASK THEM FOR A TUMBTACK DISCOUNT. we didn't use this service, but a friend who did and booked DJ Sound thru Thumbtack gave us the referral. they gave us 20% off their prices. :) Best wedding referral we got. Would recommend them to everyone. Email me with questions any of you have! Dawn.jeffery.wedding@gmail.com

  • Emily S. Mar 24, 2015
    My experience was outstanding. I wanted a DJ for my party that had experience as a club DJ And the sound to go with it. They brought it all! They made my party amazing. The DJ actually mixed the music really awesome. The DJ came with turn tables. My sisters DJ last year was lame. All he used was an ipod....and it sucked. I'm so glad I went with this company and hope you do too! Of course I'd recommend them to every one for their party or school event! Thanks guys!

    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.
    Replied to Veronica '. - Feb 3, 2015

    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!

    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.

    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.
