Premier Productions is the Wine Country’s leading production company....with two divisions- a team of DJ/MC/Event Managers, and a Videography Department.

DJ Division
Premier Productions has so much more to offer than your average DJ. Weddings, by their very nature, can be intricate affairs that require careful balance and a broad range of skills. Here are some ways that Premier Productions stands out:

1. Planning: Pre-planning allows us to create the ideal timeline and build the perfect playlist. Most people don’t want a cookie-cutter wedding; careful planning ensures that you will enjoy your personalized party amid the formalities of your wedding day.

2. Music: Wedding guests are a diverse group of people- with your guidance, Premier Productions will establish a comfortable musical flow…. from the time your guests arrive through the last dance. If live music is on the menu, Premier Productions will arrange the perfect musical accompaniment to your celebration.

3. Master of Ceremonies: Good pacing allows your wedding to not feel rushed, yet keep the momentum moving. An experienced Master of Ceremonies provides smooth transitions which are key to a successful event. As with music selection, wise and subtle use of the microphone allows us to CREATE the party, not BE the party.

4. Technology: Cutting-edge technology allows a wedding DJ to ensure that your event runs smoothly. From computerized sound systems (for instant requests and customized playlists) to wireless speakers (for total sound coverage without a mess of wires), hi-tech equipment provides a seamless musical experience. Our sound equipment is unparalleled.

5. Superior Performance: We aim to exceed your expectations. In a recent survey conducted by 'The Knot' of over 25,000 brides, Premier Productions was selected "The Best of 'The Knot' 2007", with the highest customer satisfaction rating of any music provider in Northern California. We currently hold the Bride's Choice 2010 Designation from Wedding Wire.

Videography Team
Our videographers specialize in top quality digital video production. Their work is characterized by a soft, subtle and natural style.... capturing the action as it happens, in a smooth, unobtrusive manner. In addition to capturing the best of your wedding day, we create photo montages- a personal touch to share with your guests at the reception. We also create video invitations and thank you cards..... We offer a full range of packages to fit your budget..... call us today to come view a sample and find out more. Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Our job is to CREATE the party, not BE the party. This means subtlety, finesse, and helping your guests generate the fun. Sit down with us for a complimentary consultation, and you will get a feeling for what makes us different.
What is your usual attire?
Our dress matches our approach to weddings- professional, subtle, unobtrusive. Semi-formal working attire..... though we are happy to adjust based on the event setting. Barring specific instructions to the contrary, we wear either suits or shirts and ties....
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
Our computerized sound system contains about 45,000 songs, and they all come with us to each event. If you'd like us to play something we don't yet have, we can virtually always get it. Of course, if a specific or rare version of a song is requested, we encourage our clients to get it to us, to be sure that we have the correct version.
How many other DJs do you work with?
There are three of us that own the company together- we don't hire out anyone else. That means that you will always be working with one of the owners of the company; we take pride in our ownership.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
For weddings, we have a 4 hour minimum.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
We highly recommend several in-person meetings to plan prior to the wedding. Though we can plan at a distance, personal meetings allow us to get to know what you are looking for, and determine if we are the right fit for you.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We have worked with people from many different ethnic backgrounds, and have planned specific ways to highlight their heritage through the wedding or event.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes... we run the best equipment we have found. Though not always convenient for us, the difference in sound quality is apparent. Our setup is compact, unobtrusive, and of the highest quality. We come with a computer-based system, several options for sound design, and complete back-up systems.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We do offer special equipment for a fee. We also have a portable dance floor that we can setup if needed.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
It depends on the complexity of the setup- generally we can be set up in an hour or less. We generally give ourselves about twice as much time as we think we will need. Our equipment is self-contained, meaning that we do not need a table.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No, though we generally will discuss speaker placement during the planning process.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
As with the music, we view the microphone as a tool to move the crowd. In contrast to the music, we use the mic sparingly, making effective yet brief announcements when appropriate. Again, our job is to 'create' the party, not to try to 'be' the party.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Though meals are always appreciated, they are not required, and not our focus. Generally our clients provide a meal for us, which we eat as time permits.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Of course......
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, we have trained backup personnel.
What is your overtime rate?
Our overtime rate depends on the type of event and services being used. We don't really do "cookie-cutter" weddings, so each event is quoted based on the needs and preferences of our client.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
There is no travel charge for local events within a certain radius from our office. Beyond that, we charge in $50 increments, based on the total distance.

I had David the owner at my wedding on 8/17/14 and he was AMAZING! He worked with our budget and during the reception was even helping to serve the head table and make sure we had everything we needed. Did all the dances PERFECTLY, even the surprise dance for my parents 30th anniversary coming up! My guests LOVED the music and we danced all night!

The best decision we made for our entire wedding was hiring Jay from premier productions. His service was above and beyond what we could have expected from a DJ. Not only did we meet with him three times to make sure all the music was exactly what we wanted for our ceremony and reception, but he coordinated the entire event since no one else seemed to want that job. He was amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a memorable experience at their wedding. Really, I cannot say enough about him, excellent does not come close.

I couldn't have spent my music budget any better!!! Clay was just amazing! Originally we wanted live music, but realized our budget wouldn't go far that way. We decided to look into DJs, though neither me nor my then fiance were excited about it. Clay was the secnd DJ I spoke to and before that conversation was over, I knew I had to hire him! He spent 40 minutes on the phone with me, just discussing options and ideas. At our consultation, he took at least two hours to really cover all aspects of what we wanted (and didn't want). His experience with managing flow and timing were invaluable. He was helpful with suggestions to make the event go smoothly and to make it feel special. I can't say enough good things about him!

Jay did a wonderful job! Since I planned my daughters wedding it was such a joy to have someone else run the event. Everything went so smoothly. I received so many comments that this was the best wedding and went so flawlessly. The music was great since they work with the Bride and Groom on what songs they want and don't want played at the event. Jay was great to work with and I will recommend him and Premier Productions to anyone who needs their services.

We were matched up with Jay, and he was awesome! He helped us create a timeline for our day, and kept the flow going all through the night, he also worked really well with our day of coordinator. We gave him a list of "do not play" songs, but let him pick the rest. He asked us what our music preferences were, and artists we liked. He did a great job of truly capturing our music tastes. As an out of town bride it was really easy to work with and flexible. The perfect match for us and our big day.

Nothing but great music ALL NIGHT LONG! We worked with Clay and he is amazing! He was full of suggestions and information from the very start. Whether we had no idea what we were looking for and he had to start from scratch or if we had a song that we needed to make fit into the evening... Clay made it happen. We did all of our planning from across the United States and Clay was great at making time for phone appointments and then was able to fit us in for an appointment 2 days before the wedding. On the evening of the wedding Clay was there to make sure that Vince and I had everything we needed and he has a wonderful ability to read the crowd and make adjustments on the fly which helped the evening flow very naturally.
If you're looking for a DJ that will be professional, responsive, fun, and NOT your typical wedding DJ - you've found him!

Bottom line........our dance floor was NEVER empty!! We had mix of family from Ireland and Uruguay and Clay did an amazing job of mixing both styles of music and always keeping the energy pumping! People boo'ed as he announced the last song which for me as the bride was a great feeling because we all had so much fun on the dance floor. As an event planner myself I didn't think twice about hiring Premier Productions as I have worked with them for years from the venue side of things and they were everything I could have asked for in a DJ on my own wedding day!! Thank you Clay!!!!

I first heard of Premier Productions at a local bridal show. I called them shortly after and ended up meeting with Clay. From day one my fiance and I were impressed. He was the first vendor to walk us through our whole wedding and help us really decide what we wanted. We hired him on the spot despite this being our first DJ meeting. Clay is incredibly professional and knows his stuff. We really appreciated his laid back personality and genuine love for what he does. Our wedding wasn't incrediblly traditional and Clay was able to give us the reasons behind why people do the money dance, announcement, ect.
He made our wedding day fantastic!!! It was so wonderful to work with him and he truly was our Master of Ceremonies. Hire him and you will not be dissapointed!!!

I worked with Clay at Premier Productions. Both my husband and I agree that he was by far one of our best vendors. Picking out the music with Clay was so much fun and he was very good at listening to what we had to say and helping find song selections that fit us. He also helped make sure everything ran on time and smooth. He did a great job of letting us know what to except next throughout the night so that we did not have to think about timing at all. He had a great way of making both the ceremony and reception flow and the best part was that guests complimented his work! That's when you know a vendor has done a terrific job- when guests are impressed with the service as well. My best friend worked with another Premier Productions DJ, David, and had the same wonderful experience. I would absolutely recommend Premier Productions to anyone and already have!

Clay was everything I wanted for my music. I thought the dj was an important first choice of vendors as they help set the mood for everything. I used him for my reception and he was wonderful. He totally understood what we liked and he has a great process for figuring out what you like. I trusted him completely after the first meeting and the reception went amazing. We have relatives from all sides saying this was the most dancing they had ever seen at a wedding. After the first dance, it never stopped. Great choice for a DJ.
