"Spinner Music Productions was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding! I am in the wedding industry myself so finding professional and exceptional vendors was a must - and SMP was nothing short of that! I gave them practically no direction and they somehow knew exactly what I wanted and delivered it perfectly. My dance floor was packed from the moment my reception began until the moment it ended. My guests still tell me that my wedding was the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to and I totally credit that to DJ Buono and his staff. I would recommend them a million times over! Book them ASAP!!!"

"I’m not even sure where to begin. Your generosity kindness, organization, and willingness to work with our other vendors and wedding planner was amazing! Not only was David so fun to get to know (by the end he had spent hours talking to us to get our vibe just right), but he was also incredibly professional. He went above and beyond to accommodate every request we had. Not only that but he chose us as a couple to receive an extra service due to the generosity and donation of a previous couple that could not use the services paid for! We will be forever grateful for ALL of the extra miles he went for us. The music was enjoyed by everyone and our guests were on the dance floor the entire night. He also struck the perfect balance between getting everyone on the floor and ready to dance it not being overly excited or cheesy! I’m not sure we can say enough about how amazing our experience was with Spinner Music Productions. Please book them if they are available it is worth every cent!"

"As the mother of the groom I reached out to David to help me create the most spectacular evening for my son and his beautiful bride. I assure you that he and Tim created just that for us. He had the dance floor overflowing from introductions to last call. From the 3 year olds to the 89 years young EVERYONE had an amazing time. We never sat down and guests were raving about how much fun they were having. Do yourself a favor and HIRE Spinner Music. I promise you will thank me!!!"
