Wow, amazing team, highly recommend!

Eric and his team are outstanding!
Neil was our DJ, he exceeded expectations and really helped us navigate through our night. The set up and flow of service was effortless. We had so much fun and though our crowd was small and ages ranged dramatically, we had plenty of guests up amd dancing all night. Highly recommend!

Thunderstorm kept the party going!

We are extremely happy with the service Thunderstorm Productions provided for our summer wedding! When we requested more information from Eric, he responded within 5 minutes of our email! I was very appreciative of his responsiveness.
We're both swing dancers, so music we could dance to was important to us, and our DJ Neil did not disappoint! We had some unique requests (country, 80s rock, Disney) and he was able to play them all.
We also rented a slushie machine & ice cream machine from Thunderstorm for our cocktail hour, which added to the fun of our reception. Plus, the cold drinks were much appreciated on a 40-degree afternoon! Thank you Eric and Neil for making our party fantastic!

Seamless and So Fun!

We had Brent from Thunderstorm do our ceremony and reception - we are so so pleased! He followed our music planning sheet and even improvised with some beautiful music when songs ended during our ceremony. They bring a great disco light and we had a super amazing reception with him!!

Great DJ Services

Our DJ was amazing! He made sure to check in with me multiple times throughout the night to make sure the music was to our liking. He played great songs and followed my plan perfectly! It was nice to see how much he cared about our night! Would totally recommend for any event!

Exactly What I Was Looking For

When I was asking around for DJs, no hesitation, Thunderstorm was recommended every time and they were right.

From the initial inquiry to the day of, their professionalism and attention to detail was phenomenal. Darryl, who ended up being our DJ for the night, was fantastic and really kept the party going.

I will continuously recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great DJ that keeps the party going - from the ceremony to the dance floor.
