Danielle & Craig
"Local Productions did a fine job in catering to our musical needs and requests on our wedding day. I would recommenced their service to others planning on getting married or having an event that are in need of great music and lighting. The ambiance they provided was perfect."
Jason & Megan
"If you are interested in an awesome DJ service, you have come to the right place! Our wedding was held in the middle of the woods in a large old lodge with only a few working electrical outlets. Marshall and Nick didn’t just hook us up with phenomenal sound; they tricked the whole place out with lights and lasers too! We were over the moon happy with how professional, courteous, and caring they were through the planning process and on our big day. Next time we need a DJ, we will be calling Local Productions first and recommend you do the same! Thanks guys!"
Nick and his whole team were amazing! We needed an audio setup and were planning on extremely short notice. Nick was able to provide everything we requested and more! They were professional, prompt, friendly, and fairly priced. Whether planning a high-end event for VIPs, something more casual, I can think of no better way to recommend them than to say: I would use them again in a heartbeat, and wouldn't think twice about it!
Jack- Pinewood High School
"My school's dances used to be a joke but I now look forward to them months in advance. The transformation my school's dances underwent is incredible. Local Productions turned them around entirely with the craziest lights and sound I have ever seen at a high school event. Not only have I danced to the fabulous shows they put on but I have also had the privilege to work with Nick Finlen and Marshall Whelen and the amount of effort and thought they put into their job is astounding. They take into account every detail from club lighting to party planning in order to make each event perfect, whether it is school dance or a show with live bands. Local Productions is hands down the best choice for making your special night memorable."
Jen- Gamma Phi Beta Sorority CAL Berkeley
"Our philanthropy event, G Phi Night Lights, was a 6 hour long flag football tournament held at a local CAL Berkeley Sports Field with no power. Nick & the Local Productions Staff kept the numerous teams and spectators pumped with a great mix from the afternoon and into the evening. He brought a huge sound system as well as flashing LED and moving beam lights, and even bought extra equipment so that he could DJ for our event since it was on a field. The event was impressively powered from his own car! We couldn't have had such a successful event without his music and light effects!"
Dom- Half Moon Bay, CA
"As a Half Moon Bay native, one of the highlights of my time growing up was Local Production's presence at many local social events. From school dances to community weddings to house parties, Local Productions always delivered. Unlike a lot of other DJ companies, Local Productions is very receptive to the crowd and customer needs. They play what the crowd wants and everyone has a great time because of it. Local Productions is a solid crew of music professionals. Definitely call on them for all of your party needs."
Armon & Trish
"We were married on September 14, 2013 and Local Productions provided our sound & lighting. Nick & Marshall were great! We enjoyed working with them for our special day. They were very professional and helpful – providing a lot of examples of ceremony music, background music, and reception music, tailoring our event to match what we like. They installed a sound system for the ceremony as well as lighting, and another separate sound system for the reception that created a wonderful ambiance from day into night. Everything looked and sounded incredible. We would highly recommend Local Productions for any special occasion that calls for lighting and sound."
Tony & Jenny
"Marshall and Nick did such an amazing job DJ'ing our wedding. Not only were they understanding of everything we wanted, but they also made great suggestions when we needed them. They communicated well throughout the entire process and had great customer service! On the day of the wedding, they arrived on time, set everything up and did a fabulous job. They made our lives much easier and delivered a great service! They are very nice guys with good experience and tons of knowledge. I highly recommend them for any event!"
Nills & Caroline
"Nick & Local Productions did an amazing job providing entertainment for our wedding! They were on time, professional the entire time, had great equipment and were very flexible when we made some last minute changes. They found out it was going to rain and bought tents just for our event! Even though they had to set up in the pouring rain, they were ready to go and nailed it. I would highly recommend them for you event. Thank you Local Productions! We had an amazing time!"
"Local productions is the best AV/DJ company around! Everyone should book their next event with these guys!"
Lorena & Caleb
"Working with Local Productions was very easy from start to finish. They were highly recommended by a friend of ours. We used them for our Valentines Day wedding at The Palm Event Center. Marshall and Nick, our DJ and MC were very professional and knew their stuff!
I have been to too many weddings and knew exactly what I wanted. I told them both that I wanted to keep the party going. Caleb and I told them what we wanted to play and did not want to play. They are very organized and sent us a form to fill out which helped us a lot. We were very impressed at how organized they were. There were not any awkward moments, everything went smoothly and music was great. Marshall did a great job keeping us informed of time and working with our wedding coordinator. He listened to my instructions and the dance floor was enthusiastic the entire time. I highly recommend Local Productions for your next event and wedding. Trust me when I say, having a great DJ is one of the most important vendor at your wedding"
A great job well done, highly recommend and would definitely use them again!
The Local Productions team provided quality entertainment and production services in various special events throughout the year. Nick is extremely professional, and he always works hard to personalizes his services to match the unique theme of every event.
Local Productions went above and beyond at my sister's wedding in Half Moon Bay. I cannot recommend the guys highly enough! They were professional, easy to work with, and understood the vibe of our event and matched the lighting/music/emcee'ing perfectly. I really appreciated their can-do attitude, as they made what could've been a stressful day so much easier and more fun for our family and friends. They really worked hard and helped the weekend feel even more special! Thank you, LP, for everything! - Kat Primeau
Local Productions made our wedding the night the best night of our lives! They did everything that we asked of them, and they did it in a fun and excited way while maintaining professionalism and poise. They arrived early, stayed late, and really showed us that they truly cared about the success of our event and the pleasure of our guests. The sound was great, setup looked clean and professional, and the lighting was amazing! Local Productions is a grade A business, and I would definitely recommend them for your event! - Jennifer Ventimiglia
Nick and Marshall were absolutely AMAZING at our wedding last August. They were quick to reply to any questions, really wanted to know us and our taste in music, helped with lighting(since I was clueless), and even helped with the rehearsal to time the songs to everyone's walk down the aisle. The day of our wedding was perfect, and I have never seen so many people on the dance floor for the entire night. They listened to everything we said, and played such a wonderful mix of music throughout the entire night. Even after the wedding was over several guests reached out to comment on how great the music was. Thank you guys times a million! Can't wait until we need an excuse to have another event to work with you! - Jen Kirkendall
Local Productions was amazing at my wedding! They had a great music that had everyone on they're feet the whole time I recommend them to all my friends for all kinds of celebrations - Keni Valente
I cannot say enough good things about Nick and Marshall. From the moment we contacted them to the second our wedding ended, they were on top of everything, professional, and so helpful they made my actual event coordinator look like a schmuck. Their music selection was great, the included up-lighting made my venue look even more special, and seriously, I cannot stress how helpful and professional they were. They were with me every step of the way, explaining their setup and answering any questions I asked. They conferred with the photographer and the banquet captain to make sure my wedding ran as smoothly as possible. Seriously, I saw them more than I saw the actual coordinator for the venue. They were very accommodating to our music requests and their setup was on point and ready for us.
In short, book these guys. They're worth every (very reasonable) penny.
