Hi! My name is Dan Colantone. I’m the proud owner of Tone Productions DJ Service. By my side is my life partner, my wife, Deneane. Also, one of our DJ Assistants, Dance Instructors and Ceremony Specialists.  We are the proud parents of three children; all modeling in Bridal Fashion shows over the years, flower girls and a ring bearer. Fun!

Wow! I never dreamed that after DJ’ing my first party for a local charity at the age of 17, I was going to make it my fulltime career. Music has been a big part of my life going back to Grade School & High School, where I played the trumpet in several youth bands; local concerts, marching in parades, touring the country, what fun that was. That’s where my knowledge, thirst & love for music continued to grow.

After graduating from High School, I pondered what to study in college. Like many 18 year olds, I didn’t know. That summer I DJ’d at some backyard parties and started working in a few teen dance clubs. I'd watch how the music I played energized the crowd as they danced all night. That fall, I knew I wanted to be a DJ.

For the next 8 years, besides DJ’ing Wedding Receptions and other events, I worked at well over 20 different nightclubs, bars, restaurants, pubs, and hotels with a few of my friends who are currently with Tone. Some people say, “I remember back in the day when you (Danny "Go Boy") used to spin at The Brickyard, M.T. Pockets, Gazander’s, Party’s, Michelle’s,  Stingray, Xtremez, GO Fitz, The Wild Olive, 115 Bourbon Street… I still have that CD you made me.” -  That’s Cool!

By 1992, the referrals from the past Wedding Receptions I did started pouring in and I asked some of my friends who were DJ’s if they wanted to start doing Wedding Receptions. At the end of 1993, Tone Productions did just under one hundred wedding receptions, and it was time to start hiring and training more DJ’s.

It’s now 2017, and twenty-nine years later, Tone Productions entertains tens of thousands of guests at nearly 500 Wedding Receptions a year. I oversee the entire operation of Tone Productions and I’m involved in the day to day details of each event and every client. I can truly say that Tone Productions DJ Service and the Tone Productions DJ’s are the standard of excellence.

On my website you have seen many of the awards Tone Productions has received over the years, which I am so proud of.  This is a result of all of Tone’s dedicated DJ’s, DJ Assistants, Ceremony Specialists, Technicians and office staff.  My favorite award I have ever received is the D.A.D.D award (Dedicated And Deserving Dad) presented to me by my children at their school. There is nothing more that I treasure than to spend time with my children & wife, so I found myself at their school volunteering as much as I could.  Of course my second love is MUSIC!!

Thanks for visiting our website and I hope you consider any of our DJ’s for your Wedding Reception. I personally perform at about 90-100 Wedding Receptions a year, if I'm available, I would be honored to be a part of your special day.
