"Tone Productions is a wonderful company to work with. On the vendor side they are VERY organized and detail orientated. Their staff is always polite and respectful. They really help the brides & grooms with the entire planning process. They even check with the facility to make sure the timelines are correct so there are no issues the day of. We always know that when Tone Producitons is DJ'ing, the event will be flawless!"

"As a wedding photographer, I come across a lot of dj's. The advent of ipods and digital music availability seem to have people thinking that anyone can spin music for a wedding, but Danny and the members of his team at Tone epitomize what having a DJ SERVICE can do for an event. 


He and his team are complete professionals.


They introduce themselves to the photographers, the videographers, the wait staff, and the banquet hall team, and work diligently throughout the evening to ensure that everyone involved in the event is on the same page to make the night extraordinary for the wedding couple, their family and their friends. 


In addition, I have seen he and his staff bring the couples drinks, ensure they have appetizers, usher them into a reception under the cover of umbrella and in general make sure that the couple is taken care of throughout the evening.


They also make sure that parents (and photographers and videographers) are all on hand for key events throughout the evening. On top of all this, they play music! They are great at keeping their pulse on the group to keep the party moving. 


In short, a great time is always guaranteed when Tone Productions is on the job!"

"As Catering Director of the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza in downtown Chicago, I have had the opportunity to work with many DJs for all types of events.

We average 75+ weddings a year and about 70% of the receptions will hire DJs for their wedding ceremonies and receptions.

I met Dan Colantone from Tone Productions 12 years ago and have had a great relationship with him and with his company over the years. Not only have I watched him grow his company and services over the years, Tone Productions provided the music for my own daughter's ceremony and reception.

Working in the wedding industry for more than 20 years, what I appreciate the most about Tone Productions is that they are always dependable, always on time, are great at getting the wedding party together to do introductions (keeping things on schedule!) which is not easy when everyone is going in different directions.

In general, they are just great to work with and I always look forward to seeing them come to the hotel to take care of the weddings.

It's always a great time when they are here!"

“We have heard nothing but great comments about our wedding. I give credit to Tom and Mike for keeping everyone out on the dance floor for just about every song. That was exactly what I wanted and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. The DJ’s even came and found me if they had any questions/concerns and let me know when important dances or group events were about to take place. Everything was great. Thank you so much.”

“Matt, I just wanted to take a moment to Thank You for the incredible job you did at our wedding on October 18th. We have had numerous compliments on the music selection, your enthusiasm and professionalism – but most of all – your perfect pronunciation of every name in the wedding party. Even the bartenders at the reception hall complimented us on the variety of music that you played. We have never been to a wedding where so many guests danced to the very end of the night. Please feel free to forward our name and telephone number to anyone who requests a reference. We could not have been happier with the service you provided and your personal attention to our requests. You are the absolute best in the business! Our Sincerest thanks!”

Both DJ’s helped make our night unforgettable. We have had so many compliments on Shawn and Tone Productions. We have also had many friends ask who the DJ was and which company we used. We will be more than happy to pass that info on. Thanks again!”

“Both Jim and I wanted to formally thank you for the impeccable and commendable service you provided us for our wedding on August 22nd. Your professionalism left nothing to be desired and your enthusiasm and excitement kept our wedding going all evening!!!


I would especially like to commend Lisa C. for going above and beyond her call on duty. She went out of her way to calm my nerves and make sure I drank some juice before walking down the aisle, (a good thing since I hadn’t eaten all day). She also went to one of my bridesmaid’s home when we were in desperate need of a hair dryer and curling iron. It had helped to add perfection to our day and provide comfort to myself and my bridesmaids. This comfort she provided was excellent and should be commended.


We would certainly HIGHLY recommend anyone to use your company and if you ever need to refer a potential customer for recommendation, we would be more than happy to offer a glowing one. Thank you again for your excellent service and accommodation. It was truly the utmost of professionalism and fun!!!!”

Wedding Date: 09-27-03 The Turnberry

DJ’s Steve S. & Randy G.



“A letter will not be able to express our thanks and satisfaction with our experience with Tone Productions. We truly don’t know where to even begin. From our first meeting with Matt to the final song Tom and Randy played and every phone call to follow up with us in between, Tone exhibited what a first class organization it is.


Our dance floor was packed nonstop and we have Tom and Randy to thank for that. After giving them a long list of songs, they somehow managed to transition from one song to another, adding some we didn’t even think of, to make our wedding an experience not only we, but our guests , will ever forget. We had so many people compliment us on our music choices and what fun they had dancing, but we really have Tom and Randy to thank for that. They listened to our every request and made sure they were executed. We were able to dance the night away without a care in the world because of them.


I am recommending Tone to anyone I know who is looking for a DJ. Everyone was extremely helpful and professional and made this aspect of our planning a joy to deal with. Our wedding day and all the events included in it were perfect, and Tone was a huge part of that. Thank you again so much.”

My husband and I could not have been more impressed by your level of professionalism and courtesy throughout our year-long working relationship before the wedding. As pleased as we were with many of our wedding vendors, you were the only one who made calls without prompting to firm up our plans and make certain that everything would go smoothly. Your attention to detail was flawless. Sure enough, our reception went seamlessly.


“It was obvious that you and Colette were in tune with our guests – the dance floor was packed the entire night. You graciously respected all of our requests, and created a truly festive atmosphere. You were undoubtedly the best vendor to work with. Though we knew already of your excellent reputation and glowing reviews, you surpassed all our expectations and we are very thankful for all your help.”

Not only do we recommend their services we have our own families use them. Their attention to detail before and during your event is amazing. Its like having your own personal guide all night.


If you want a DJ that will just stand there and hit play on the cd, then DO NOT CALL Tone Productions.

It has been an honor to work with them over the years!"
