"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.

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!"

DJ’s Kevin D. & Tony


“We want to begin by simply saying thank you. From the moment you started to set up, until it was time to pack up, everything was perfect. The night ran very smooth, given that you guided and informed us when something was about to take place. We were never once nervous or rushed about certain dances or activities. You were very considerate and knowledgeable about our surroundings and gave us plenty of time to prepare. A big part of the success was due to very organized pre-consultations. You gave us a lot of your time offering suggestions and most importantly listening to ours. Not only did you impress us, you impressed our family. The compliments were flowing all night on the kind of music played, they way you kept it going, the interactive props that were used, and your interaction with the crowd. We know we have a wild and crazy family, but there always has to be someone to get the party started- that someone was you! The dance floor was packed all night long. We can not believe it has been over a month that this all happened, but the family is still talking about our DJ. A couple of relatives and friends have asked for your information and website. We hope to bring plenty more business your way. Once again, thank you. Our wedding day was truly made more special by the exceptional job you did.”

Gina & Dennis Lamonte

Wedding Date 07-31-04 Ruffled Feathers
DJ’s Tom T. & Darek

“Jessica and I would like to thank you for the amazing job you did at our wedding on August 14th, 2004. The music at the ceremony was perfect since the speakers were positioned discreetly, the timing was excellent, and the sound system was clear. Even though we didn’t get to spend too much time at the cocktail hour due to pictures, everyone loved the Mark Farina CD you recommended. It definitely set the tone for the evening and complimented the setting and décor. Throughout the reception, we constantly received compliments on all of the music. By being versatile playing different genres such as oldies, 80’s hip hop, and techno, your song selections appealed to every one of all ages. It was obvious that the crowd loved the music and had a wonderful time since the dance floor was packed all evening. I think that definitely speaks volumes about your ability as a DJ when complete strangers expressed more interest in our party. Music is obviously a large part of the entertainment at the reception, and our wedding would not have been nearly as fun without the great job done by Tone Productions. We would gladly recommend you to anyone and would like to say thanks again for a job well done.”

“We wanted to take the time to express to you the exemplary service that your company, and specifically DJ’s Louie Rarick and Matt , provided for us. While the recollection of every aspect of this event displayed is somewhat unclear due to the excitement, anxiety, and preoccupations that we were that we were facing, we relied very heavily on the opinions and feedback of our family and guests. Needless to say, we have received compliment upon compliment as to the professionalism, courteousness, and music selection of Louie and Matt. We would also like to compliment Louie and Matt, as well as thank them, for keeping us informed every step of the way during the reception and for their assistance in helping us make this a very special night for everyone in attendance. Suffice it to say, the service Tone Productions provided, we would certainly recommend your company to our friends and family. As far as advertising, Louie and Matt did the company a service by displaying their professionalism and talent to all of the guests throughout the reception. Should we need DJ service again in the future, rest assured we will look no further than Tone Productions. Thanks again.”

“I was so happy with how well everything went, I personally gave a hug to Dan and thanked him for everything he had done. We were very impressed with both Dan and Janet. They both checked in with us through out the evening to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. They let us know when specialty dances were coming up and checked with us before playing requested songs. They were truly exceptional in their service. The volume was great for both dinner conversation as well as dancing. Due to time constraints being able to communicate and make song selections with the website was perfect. I can’t say enough about the wonderful service we received. It was worth every penny. We’ve definitely given your name out to a lot of people. We hope to someday see you again for anther special event! ”

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.


If you want a DJ that gets people up and dancing, then call them now! 


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