    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!

    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.

    Thunderstorm Productions's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review. We are so happy you had an amazing time. Daryl is an amazing DJ and we are lucky to have him as part of our team. Thank you and Congratulations
