Vario Productions was AMAZING!!!!! We have nothing but great things to say about them. We had Kris as our DJ and he was fantastic!!! We did the DJ live combo as well and our guests can't stop talking about how great it was. Everyone was dancing the whole night! Vario also did the lighting and did such a great job. We had a special design we wanted for the gobo and they made it work and it looked awesome! They were also very responsive and returned our emails immediately, which was so nice! I highly recommend them!

Vario Productions was one of our first vendors that we booked and they did not disappoint. Throughout the entire process they were professional, quick to respond to all my questions, and went above and beyond. Matt was our account manager and truly was amazing. He assisted in helping us make our own custom gobo, and when we both thought the design wouldn't work, he problem solved and advised us on what to change so we could still have the look of what we envisioned.

Our DJ was Kris and he was beyond amazing! We had meet with him once before, and gave him a small list of songs that we wanted, and explained the vibe we wanted for our wedding. He arrived earlier than expected day of, followed the timeline, and knew exactly what to play to set the mood. All of our guests came up to me and said how much fun they were having and that it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and that's largely due to Kris and Vario Productions. We highly recommend hireling both Vario Productions and Kris for your wedding or next event!

I just got married on May 9, 2015 at Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook, CA. I attended the US Grant Bridal Bazaar (which is the best bridal bazaar I've ever been to by FAR). In the "reception" themed room, there was a DJ with a percussionist. They sounded SOOOOOO good. I followed up with (back then) Tim Altbaum Productions (now Vario Productions) and made an appointment for my husband and I to have a consultation. We met with Matt Roush. He took down some of our likes and dislikes. Got to know what kind of music we liked. He also informed us of the other services they provide. We ended up booking Michael Cabrera as our DJ, a percussionist and our photo booth with them as well.

We had met with Michael on our own and he got a feel for what type of music we liked. I loved that they don't have a "play list" but that they get down your must plays, and DO NOT play! But we were still able to give them small lists of songs that my husband and I absolutely wanted to be played during dinner and cocktail hour which was so awesome. My husband and I have very different tastes in music (I wanted certain Disney songs played and my husband likes reggae/island music), but Michael made it work, and it fit us so well. Our guests loved the percussionist and Michael together! Many said that they'd never seen that before(which is always so awesome to hear). The dance floor was never empty. And in my opinion, that says A LOT about a DJ. My husband and I always say, theres nothing worse than a bad DJ at a wedding. Michael was beyondddddd amazing. And our guests adored the photo booth.

We loved working with Matt and Michael at Vario productions. I will definitely be recommending them to my friends who are engaged and I hope to work with them again!! Thanks!! J.D. and Erika DeOcampo

Matt was very easy to work with and responsive to all e-mails I sent. He helped us decide which lighting elements were the most important and put a package together that stayed within our budget. He was also able to put together an audio package for our rehearsal dinner on short notice. I contacted many A/V companies and shopped around for the best options and pricing. We are very happy with what Vario was able to offer us and would highly recommend them.

Vario Productions set up the market lighting an entire day early to ensure everything was perfect! The lighting was stunning and made out entirely outdoor event feel romantic and look stunning. The staff was friendly and extremely responsive. Every time I had a question or needed more information they were available and got back to me quickly with all the information I needed to make a decision. Thank you for all of your hard work and efforts!

Our guests are still talking about how they have never danced start to finish at a wedding and that was due in large part to the team at Vario and DJ Michael! Michael kept the wedding moving and on schedule and kept all guests dancing. Matt & Tim were so helpful in the planning process making sure our wedding venue had all the correct equipment to make Michael's set up go smooth. Michael really took the time to get to know my husband and I and understand what we wanted on our big day.

Vario takes the time to work on every little detail of your day to ensure a seamless execution on your special day. You cannot go wrong with this team! We could not have asked or a better team and DJ!

Effren DJ’d for our ceremony and our reception. We were fortunate to be able to meet him in person in advance of the wedding, and found him totally chill and easy to work with. For the wedding, while we gave him some artists and genres that we like, Effren turned that into hours of musical play that far exceeded our expectations. He was able to get our generation (we’re in our mid-30s) and understand how to key into specific songs that took us and our friends down high school and college memory lane. We danced the night away…exactly the way we wanted. We moved things around during the reception, and he was flexible and handled the music and segues seamlessly. And when my dad brought out a CD last-minute to change our father-daughter dance song, Effren handled it like a pro.

We also hired TAP to do purple uplights/color-wash on the ceiling of our reception space. The color was beautiful and just the right touch. A big thanks to Effren!

Where to start. I was looking for a DJ for my wedding and was having a hard time finding someone who I thought could meet both my fiancé (now husband) and my needs for our wedding. I did some online searches and Tim Altbaum Productions always seemed to be at the top of the search. I did some more research with other DJs in the area, left plenty of messages and received hardly any call back or any email replies.

Finally got a reply from Matt at Tim Altbaum. Matt was really friendly and helpful. He set up a meeting with my fiancé and I at our convenience, and I really appreciated that. On our first meeting in person, as I said, Matt was really friendly, accommodating, and gave us a great breakdown of what we could expect from their company and their DJs. He made the process very easy, not stressful at all, especially that planning for a wedding could be super stressful. I felt very at ease, no pressure at all. After our meeting he was very prompt with a proposal. I personally thought that because they were #1 in San Diego, that the prices would be through the roof, but Matt gave me a very fair estimate and we signed with TAP right away!

As for our DJ for the wedding, we had DJ Michael Cabrerra. At our first meeting he was very organized as well. I don't think I could have asked for a better DJ. We went over our timeline for the wedding reception, and all the things that I wanted included. During the reception, he always checked in with us. Made sure that the timeline was flowing well, and worked with the people at our venue very well. I was super pleased and our guests were out on the floor dancing.

I would definitely recommend Tim Altbaum Productions for all entertainment needs. They're AWESOME!!!

We decided to go with Tim Altbaum for all the audio components of our wedding, and were very happy with our choice. They arranged a guitarist for the ceremony, and Effren the DJ and MC for the reception. They had all the audio set up well in advance, with no hiccups. The event was perfect, and we could not have been happier. Every one of the guests had a blast, and we were even able to get some of the folks that don't typically dance, to get out on the dance floor! Matt Roush was fantastic leading us through the process, getting all of our preferences WELL in advance. Effren was a great DJ - having called us a few weeks before to really understand our guest profile and what would really fire up the crowd. ANd then he did a perfect job on execution. Highly recommended!
