My husband and I got married on 09/05/15 and really liked working with Tone Productions for our wedding. We met with our DJ, Spero, at our first meeting and he continued to walk with us through the process. Tone allows you to choose your own playlist (which was important to us), while allowing us some songs not to play. We were able to choose our playlist online and received quick responses when we needed help. Pam and the rest of the staff that helped us at the wedding and leading up to it were efficient and friendly. We would definitely recommend them to others as they were so easy to work with.
Just Amazing!Reviewed on 5/06/2015 Rebecca F
I could not say enough about Tone Productions.. They were simply amazing! They answered any and all questions before the wedding. At the wedding.. My right hand man. Anything and everything I needed, they had it... even safety and bobby pins! Anything I needed, they made sure it happened. They made sure everything ran smoothly for me, and that I had no problems. From the ceremony to the reception they were just a total stress reliever. Amazing team and company!
Kept the Party Going All Night LongReviewed on 3/31/2015 Amanda S
Tone productions is amazing! If you live in the Chicagoland area these are the guys to DJ for your wedding! They are so accommodating and will meet with you as many times as you would like. (Thank you Dan!) I would highly recommend them!

overall rest job. Wish they would have played all of the "must play" songs they asked me to include though! They are very organized and definitely know what they are doing!!
The BestReviewed on 3/24/2015 Megan M
Tone Productions was the best. They worked with my venue to ensure our reception started on time, and everyone was having a good time. Spiro (sp?) was great, and I loved the fact that you were able to pick all the music. It helps personalize the reception.
Dance ALL Night!!!!Reviewed on 2/22/2015 Amanda B
Tone Productions is amazing. My wedding was November 2014. Before the wedding the staff was easy to get in touch with, and any questions I had they were incredibly willing to help. Definitely WORTH the money. I had 3 meetings total, 1st to initiate and 2 others on questions. Incredibly FAST communication on all accounts. The online tool and songs database was wonderful & easy to use too. The night of the wedding my DJ was extremely professional & nice as was his assistant. My dance floor was full all night long. This was my requirement upon choosing Tone. Choose Tone Productions and the night will go great!
Packed Dance Floor!!Reviewed on 1/28/2015 Gina S
Tone Productions was a great DJ service!!! They were reasonably priced and easy to work with! They worked with our budget and accepted multiple payments. We met with our DJ twice and did most of our planning online which worked well with my busy schedule. They made sure that our song selection was exactly what we wanted (different versions of songs). We had Spero as our DJ and he was fantastic! He could easily see what kind of music we wanted just by looking at our selections. Our dance floor was packed all night long! They do offer a photo booth, which we did not use as we wanted people on the dance floor all night-and they were!!! I highly recommend Tone Productions DJ service and I loved Spero as our DJ!!
Professional Expertise at its BestReviewed on 1/21/2015 Beth A
We were fortunate enough to discover Tone Productions at a bridal expo, and it was one of the best decisions we made regarding the wedding reception. From the time we first met with Spero and the Tone Productions staff, we knew we were in for a well-executed event. Spero ran us through every last detail, offered suggestions without being pushy, and helped cultivate a timeline for our evening that kept everyone entertained and dancing until they turned out the lights. Their online system made picking the music we wanted to hear (and more importantly, the music we DIDN’T want to hear) extremely easy. Spero also picked up on the vibe we were trying to hit with our music, and with our permission, was able to improvise somewhat, and he didn’t miss a beat! They took the time to explain how the sound would best reverberate around our venue, and because of their ample experience, took a venue that was tough to navigate acoustically, and engineered a plan that allowed even the guests in the back to make their way to the front and dance! We were so lucky to have Spero and Nick as our wedding DJs. From planning to execution they were a pleasure to work with throughout. We would highly recommend them to ANYONE who’s planning their special day!
Pointer, Steele Wedding July 26, 2014.Reviewed on 1/06/2015 Tobie F
Pointer, Steele Wedding July 26, 2014. What an incredible day, Tone Productions DJ Service provided 5 star services. The ceremony was crystal clear, you could hear every word spoken. The sound blended perfect with the string quartet. Tone Productions also provided the music and up lighting throughout the reception. Thank you for making our day impeccable.

Tone Productions ReviewReviewed on 11/09/2014 Emily T
Tone Productions was a great choice for what we wanted at our wedding ceremony and reception. We had many songs in mind for different activities and sections of the evening, and they took our list and executed it almost perfectly. Tone Productions was one of the most organized vendors. Their website makes communication with them very efficient and assures that they see anything that you enter. The only part of the day that we didn’t have many requests for was the dancing music, and we were a little disappointed with their choices. Toward the beginning of the dancing portion of the evening they played songs that had everyone dancing, but by the end some of the songs were inappropriate and many were things that were popular in the 90’s and early 2000’s that only a handful of people enjoyed dancing to. It is also not quite fair to say that this was their fault because we gave them almost no recommendations for dancing music when we had the opportunity to.
Great entertainment!Reviewed on 11/08/2014
Tone Productions did a great job helping us entertain guests at the reception. We chose to do a parent message in our father/daughter and mother/son songs, which was a perfect and unique touch! We met with Dave before the wedding to do the parent message and finalize our song list, which made the day go very smoothly. Louie and Dana were our DJs for the reception and did an amazing job! They touched base with us as soon as we showed up to talk through the order of the night. It was easy to get sidetracked and they were good at letting us know when we needed to start the next event (first dance, parent dances, etc.). Once the dancing got started, it didn't stop! Louie and Dana kept the dance floor full the entire night, which was very important to us. Our guests are still talking about how much fun our reception was! Thanks Louie, Dana, and everyone else at Tone Productions!
They made my weddingReviewed on 11/03/2014 Kristen K
Without Tone Productions I don’t think my wedding would have run so smoothly. They took care of all the logistics of the night and just told me where I needed to be and when. Thanks again!
Best DJ Service in Chicagoland!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Samantha S
We can not say enough wonderful things about Tone Productions! They were extremely helpful and detail oriented throughout the planning process. There was a perfect balance of suggesting what has worked in the past and allowing the client creative freedom. Dan and his assistant Kevin were phenomenal the day of the wedding - we put complete trust into them and everything went very smoothly! Dan and Kevin were connected to the staff at our reception venue via headset which contributed to the ease of the evening. Very impressed and I would recommend to anyone!!
DJ Dan from Tone ProductionsReviewed on 10/29/2014 Kelley P
My husband and I cannot thank Dan and the rest of the Tone Productions staff enough for their tremendous work. From the day that we had our consultation until the last few minutes of the evening, Dan did everything in his power to make sure my husband and I were able to enjoy our special day and get everything we asked for to have a perfect wedding. Dan did a wonderful job keeping our guests on the dance floor. Everyone seemed to enjoy all of the music and looked like they had a wonderful time. I will definitely recommend Dan and the Tone Productions staff to DJ other people's wedding!
So Great!Reviewed on 10/25/2014 Lindsay J
Tone productions was awesome! Tom and Paul were so great the day of my wedding. Both of them kept in contact with me the entire day and let me know how things were going to happen so I was prepared. They played everything that I had asked for and also knew how to keep my guests on the dance floor. The dance floor was packed all night long thanks to these guys!
Tone is great!Reviewed on 10/21/2014 Kristi L
We booked Tone for our DJ for our wedding on 10/17/14 and they are AMAZING. So helpful and the nicest people to work with. They go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect for you. Our photographer left behind a list of email addresses to send pictures to and one of the DJ's picked it up and they mailed it to my photographer. Spero was so great and we couldn't have asked for a better night! Every other vendor we hired couldn't say enough good things about Tone and how they love working with them and how we would have nothing to worry about with them. They were right! They are more expensive than other DJ's we looked at but you get so much included in the price that you would have to pay extra for elsewhere. They are well worth every penny!
Glad I went with them!Reviewed on 10/09/2014 Lauren H
I met my DJ, Spero, at a Bridal Expo. Since I made an appointment to have a consultation with them while I was at the expo, when I decided to book with them they provided DJ services for the ceremony for free and also included uplighting in whatever colors I chose also for free. We had a few meetings and they were extremely detailed. I did not have answers to many of the questions they had at first because I had never even thought about those questions before. They had really cool ideas too. The hubby and I had access at all times to our wedding song list and got to build it from scratch. We added and approved every song. We made a must play, play if possible and a do not play list. They also had a custom list where we could add songs that they did not have in their database. We have weird taste, so our playlist was pretty crazy. They gave us no trouble and found every song that we requested. I felt a little lost with how the night was going to go, but they always were there to explain to us what was going to happen next or they would approach us and give us a 3 song warning that they thought we should do the bouquet toss, garter toss, dances, etc. If we weren't ready yet or we wanted to do something sooner they were very flexible. I would highly recommend them. If you ever want to see their work, they usually do most of the Bridal Expos around the Chicago area.
Great fun!Reviewed on 10/07/2014 Stephanie L
These guys were fantastic! We got married at the Rialto Square Theater in Joliet a couple weeks ago and they definitely know how to play the space. Spero and Paul kept everybody on the dance floor that night! My partner and I were worried at first because a lot of the songs we wanted on our playlist weren't in the database online for Tone. It didn't matter! They played EVERYTHING! They were super flexible with every choice we made and adapted to things that changed at the last minute. The uplighting was also stellar! It highlighted the gorgeous open space of the Rialto's rotunda. Very professional. They touched base with us throughout the evening to check in but still gave us enough space to enjoy ourselves. We didn't have to worry about a thing. We felt relaxed and comfortable in their hands. Such an unbelievably fun night! A little difficult to hear the DJ announcements at times in such a big venue but other than that, so pleased with our experience!
Get Your Dance OnReviewed on 9/09/2014 Christina E
Tone Productions was the DJ for both our ceremony and reception. We had an offsite ceremony so there was an additional cost but we did get a multi use discount. We had originally seen DJ Sean Frost at a friends wedding and knew that we wanted them for our wedding so we didn't shop around; but I will say talking to some others there DJ services were cheaper. However the quality of service was worth the little extra cost. We did have one small miscommunication with email; but if you call them they are quick to return your call. Overall we were extremely satisfied with them.
More than just DJ'sReviewed on 7/17/2014 Tina B
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.
Awesome DJReviewed on 7/17/2014 Cara M
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!!
Shockingly DisappointedReviewed on 7/14/2014 Monica B
I had seen Tone Productions at many other weddings and liked them very much. Upon the first meeting, we were highly impressed. My fiance and I loved the ease of putting together our requests list. Every time we called they were very accommodating. The night of our wedding, the two djs were wonderful people. However, after spending hours creating our play list, only about 30% of the songs we had on our "Must" play list were played. We did not have too many songs on our list either. There were many songs played that we did not have on our list so it was confusing to us as to why the songs we wanted were not. Unsure as to what happened.
Kept us Dancing All Night!Reviewed on 7/07/2014 Sarah W
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!
Highly RecommendedReviewed on 6/16/2014 Carly F
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.
Simply the best!!Reviewed on 4/29/2014 Kristen B
Tone Productions was the easiest of vendors to pick for our wedding! We had amazing reviews from friends and from the first time meeting with Dan, we knew there was no one who would be better. They are so incredibly organized and have weddings down to a T. I loved the online planner and that we were able to customize everything. That day, Dan and Tom were so precise and everything ran so smooth! They went above and beyond when Tom gave my husband and I a ride back to the hotel so we wouldn't have to wait for the shuttle with everyone else. Outstanding service and not to mention soooo much fun!!! Thank you, Tone Productions!
