Sam Turner was our DJ and he made our wedding reception an absolutely phenomenal experience. I enjoyed working with him so much, he was very responsive to my emails and really got my vision for our reception music. As a fellow 80s/90s baby he knew exactly what throw back music choices our guests would want to hear and had amazing suggestions that added a lot to my already very extensive wedding playlist. Sam was so professional, kept to our schedule during the reception - even at times more than I was able to - and was overall a pleasure to work with. Beat Train, the parent company was also amazing to us - when I had to change the date of my wedding because my mother become suddenly severely ill, they accommodated me and didn't charge us any additional change fee because they understood and were extremely sympathetic to our situation. I recommend both Sam Turner and Beat Train highly!

Beat Train was fantastic. They were very easy to work with, scheduling calls and helped us pick a great DJ for our wedding. Seth was absolutely perfect. He was easy to reach via email and was very flexible scheduling a time to talk on the phone before the big day. We didn't have much of a plan for the music, except that we wanted our reception to be a fun dance party and boy did Seth deliver! Everyone (young and older) spent the entire reception on the dance floor and had a great time! Seth did a superb job playing music everyone liked, and also cut down our first dance and parent dance times just as we requested. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ!

Sam Turner was the perfect choice for our wedding reception at the Surf Club on the Sound. He made the planning process easy for us and we felt very comfortable just giving him a little direction and letting him take the reins. We had a special request to have one of our guests introduce the wedding party to the reception. Sam put forward extra effort to make sure this guest was properly prepared before the reception began. We had requested that he play a few segments of Armenian music and he worked it into his set list seamlessly. Sam also arrived hours before cocktail hour to ensure everything was set up and ready to go before we arrived. The best part of all - the dance floor was packed the whole night. Sam's playlist kept our guests glued to the dance floor (even during the additional dessert hour). Three weeks later, we are still hearing how great the music was and how crazy the dance floor got. Lastly, Sam made sure we felt like we (bride and groom) had control of the night. He checked in to make sure any instructions or requests were approved by us. We would strongly recommend using Beat Train, and Sam specifically, for your wedding reception.

We had a wonderful experience working with DJ Joe Lopez and Beat Train for our wedding in October 2016! We felt great about our decision to work with Joe right from our first call. He was laid back, had excellent taste in music, and was interested in getting to know us and our vision for the wedding. We knew that a packed dance floor was a top priority and Joe created an awesome playlist to keep the energy high all night long. We got so many compliments about the music from our guests and also the venue staff! Joe also helped to make the day run smoothly, helping out with our live musicians during the ceremony, moving around equipment to DJ in different locations, etc. And the Beat Train team was professional, responsive, and flexible. We highly recommend Joe and Beat Train for your wedding or any other event!

I had such a great experience with Beat Train Productions, and I highly recommend them! Elissa was amazing from start to finish. We Face Timed a couple of times before the wedding in order to get to know her a little bit, and this allowed her to get to know our personalities and musical tastes. We submitted a complete list of the songs we wanted played for each moment of the wedding day. She totally knew how to read the crowd and select the perfect songs for each moment. The dance floor was packed all night long. I happen to think the music is the most important aspect of a good party, and you will not be disappointed if you select Beat Train. Thanks, Elissa!

JEFFREY DURAND.that is all. At the beginning of the planning process, I thought the music was going to be the hardest part to organize. My husband and I have two very different types of taste, so I knew finding a DJ we BOTH liked would be extremely difficult. From the beginning, Beat Train Productions WOWed us! They have, hands down the best website. I was able to listen to samples of each of the DJ’s, see a promo video of them “performing” in a wedding environment and other various facts about each of them. This is where I knew Jeffrey Durand was our guy. His demo video not only stood out, but was exactly what I was looking for in our wedding DJ. He changed my opinions of how hard finding a DJ would be the first time I talked to him. He was literally the most exciting, most easy going "I've got this" type of guy. He explained the process from start to finish; filled us in on what works best and what doesn’t; shared stories and ideas from his past experiences, but most importantly he took time to get to know US. He asked US questions about who we are and what we like. When either of us had a concern about certain songs working together, he took time to explain how the mixing process worked, and even gave us examples. Fast forward through the easy process to the wedding. Along with conversations leading up to the wedding, Jeff showed up to the wedding super stylish and very professional. Even when my MIL changed the Mother/Groom song the morning of, everything ran so smoothly. With Jeff’s mixing style and fillers, Jeff had the dance floor packed.literally, ALL.NIGHT.LONG. His theory of “blocking” and suggestions of when to lay what genres is GENIUS. (If you don’t know what I am talking about let him sit down with you and explain it.)There was not a point during the whole reception that the dancefloor was empty! It was amazing. There is a saying, “You get what you pay for”. That certainly is not the case We got so much more. Jeff is extremely talented! Highly recommen

My wife and I recently hired Beat Train's Jeff Durand as our DJ - and he was fabulous!! Throughout the planning process he was incredibly easy to work with. He provided a sound system for our officiant and readers to use during our ceremony, played music during our ceremony, MC'd the night, and kept people on the dance floor all night long!
Many, many of our guests said how much fun they had dancing and that they loved our DJ. Cannot recommend Beat Train or Jeff D highly enough - also, love how the DJs all put their playlists online. If you love music, they are a great place to get a feel for what each DJ's style is while you're making your decision!

Sam Turner was our AMAZING DJ for our wedding on 10/8/16. He was absolutely phenomenal to work with- he is super personable, down to earth and so easy going. He made the planning process so easy and not a bit stressful!
Sam knew that our #1 goal of the night was to have just a huge continuous dance party all night long. He absolutely gave us EXACTLY what we wanted. Every single song we asked him to play was played. During the dinner portion of the night, we sent him a list of some of our favorite songs, nothing was a "must play," along with different genres that we liked. He ended up playing them ALL and it was perfect! After dinner, he started his set and my guests, quite literally, danced ALL NIGHT LONG. He played a mix of everything- exactly what we were hoping for! He ended the night with an awesome 90s mix that everyone went absolutely nuts over! When the night was over, some of my guests literally ran up to his table begging him to play more music- no one wanted it to end!
During the reception, our families had a few surprises for my husband and I! Unbeknownst to us, they were working with Sam to help pull them off! Our families were secretly emailing and planning with Sam for a few weeks leading up to the wedding. He truly went above and beyond to help accommodate and execute all of the awesome things our families did for us.
Music, for us, was the most important part of our planning. We didn't want typical wedding music, we wanted to feel like we were at a party. The entire night we felt like we were at a huge dance party with all of our favorite people hearing all of our favorite music. It was truly amazing. Our guests are STILL talking about how phenomenal the music was.
We can't thank Sam enough for being such a huge and amazing part of our day! We feel so thankful and lucky that we found Beat Train Productions and, especially, Sam. He is the BEST- he is so talented and great at what he does. He made our day so special by being a part of it!

Our wedding was October 8, 2016 and Jeff Gilbride was our incredible DJ. I had initially wanted a band, but my husband would only consider a DJ - I am incredibly grateful for his stubbornness because Jeff made the evening "one of the best weddings I've ever attended" according to our guests. Jeff blended genres seamlessly to have everyone dancing all night. We gave him almost no direction, we were late with our music planner, and changed the ceremony songs a few days before the wedding, but it didn't matter: Jeff was flexible, thoughtful and genius in interpreting our thoughts to create a music plan for our day. Jeff was able to accommodate shortening of songs, gave us our queues, and provided transitions. Most importantly Jeff honored our "do not play" list and was able to diffuse requests, even from the mother of the bride (this bride could not be more relieved that We Are Family was NOT played at our wedding, sorry not sorry Mom!!) We would recommend Jeff and Beat Train 100x over.
THANK YOU JEFF!!! We all had an awesome time!
