Thank you so much Mat, you're awesome!
“Matt was amazing. He meshed well with my crowd. We had a band play as well and the MC/drummer of the band said that Matt was easy to work with. They planned the “schedule” on the fly and Matt was okay with whatever was thrown at him. He played the genre of music that we requested, and everyone was happy. He found my husband and I at the end of the night and told us there were 2 songs left, asked us if there was anything specific we wanted to hear. I really really enjoyed having Matt as our DJ! He really did make me happy. I’ve never danced at a wedding but barely left the dance floor at mine!!! Thank you so much Matt, you’re awesome!”

Ruth – Married on July 25, 2015

Chris exceeded our expectations!
“Chris was absolutely fantastic! From the first meeting and throughout the whole process, he was there to answer questions and give us ideas. When the day finally came, Chris exceeded our expectations! The lights that he provided were a wonderful complement to the lights that we had at our venue. Chris went above and beyond, providing an awesome night of entertainment! He came to the venue well ahead of schedule, and set up his equipments, lights, and Photo booth. I highly highly recommend him if you are looking for someone who is fun, down to earth, and dedicated to his work! Though we did not have a videographer, we had plenty of footage from friends and family of the reception and dance, it was spectacular! Thank you SOOOO much Chris for being a part of our wedding, for catering to our very last minute requests, and for being a superb DJ!”

Lou & Johnny – Married June 20, 2015

Ryan was very entertaining.
“Ryan was very entertaining. He made sure everybody was having fun. He played the music that appealed to all audience. He is very personable and easy going. We would love him to entertain our next event.”

St. Michael’s Health Group – January 17, 2015

The music had people running to the dance floor.
“Absolutely amazing job! The music had people running to the dance floor, the custom lights with our names on the floor were incredible, and the photo booth was the biggest hit at our wedding! He was so easy to approach and talk to! We had a secret dance surprised for the bride, and he coordinated and timed everything perfectly! Thank you so much Chris!”

Kallie & Cody – Married October 11, 2014

Thanks Chris we would definitely hire you again!
“After meeting some not so friendly DJ’s in the city we found Grindstone Productions and Chris was awesome! From the timing of the songs for our ceremony to the lighting for the reception, it was fantastic. We met with Chris a few times before our event and even though he couldn’t attend our rehearsal he did a bang up job on the day! Thanks Chris we would definitely hire you again!”

Neil & Charlene – Married September 29, 2014

We would without hesitation recommend Grindstone Productions.
“Chris was amazing throughout our whole planning process. He went above and beyond to help us. Initially, he proactively called the Shaw Conference Centre (venue of our wedding) to get a better understanding of the setup, in order to provide us with a better quote of the total cost.

As our event got closer, he would be in constant communication with the Shaw to ensure that all the details would be taken care of. We felt very comfortable having Chris provide DJ services, screens/projectors and a photo booth for our wedding. Chris took care of every detail. He even ensured that his attire was acceptable for the event!

On the day of the event, everything was setup as we had agreed upon. When there were technical difficulties, Chris worked incredibly hard to resolve the issues and compensated us for the delay. During the dance, he was very responsive to music requests but respected our music preferences at the same time.

We would without hesitation recommend Grindstone Productions to all of our friends and family.”

Vanessa & Jeffrey – Married September 13, 2014

We will definitely recommend you anybody we know that requires a DJ.
“I just wanted to say thanks for everything and having Ryan be our DJ. I would’ve send this out earlier but I’ve been busy with school right after the wedding.

Ryan was a really nice guy and a gentleman all around. While we were dealing with some last minute hiccups, he was kind of left to fend for himself as we gave him very little instructions but he handled it like a true professional. Those questionnaires you had us fill out seemed to help him figure out the type of music and mood we wanted. Diana and I were thrilled with his song choices and were very pleased that his music elevated the atmosphere of the event. It was also nice to see him to get people to dance as our guests seemed timid at first. He also managed to get a bunch of guests to line dance, as one guest pointed out, “we’re Asian we do not line dance!” He was a good sport and showed the guests how to line dance and the Cha-Cha slide.

Anyways, we wanted to say thank you so much for making it a stress-free and fun experience. I can honestly say booking a DJ with you guys was the only part of our wedding experience that did not result in any headaches. Thank you so much. We will definitely recommend you anybody we know that requires a DJ.”

Kenny and Diana – Married on August 30, 2014

Very personable and helpful, we knew right away it was the company for us.
“It was awesome! Everyone enjoyed themselves, including us. We had so many decisions on which songs to choose from (with which Chris helped, so grateful) so, we left the rest in his capable hands. We said to play whatever he would like, and did a wonderful job. People were up dancing all night! There were a few odd requests as well which he had no problem playing and it made everyone so happy.

As for the planning process, he was great right from the first meeting. Very personable and helpful, we knew right away it was the company for us.

We will certainly hire Grindstone again and will recommend to everyone. Thanks for helping to make our day perfect!!”

The music was perfect.
“I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you what a great job Mat and Kathleen did. The music was perfect for the occasion and the photo booth was a big hit. One of our board members who had originally questioned the value of a photo booth has been entirely and publicly converted into an enthusiastic supporter. Please pass on our praise and thanks to Mat and Kathleen.”

Kathleen, coordinator for Albertans Advocating for Change Together – Event on June 14, 2014

Thank you for your professionalism!
“Chris showed up on time and went right to work. When the music started the kids all gravitated to the gym and rarely left for the next three hours. He seemed to have a good connection with them by allowing requests and handing out spot dance prizes. Our event was a complete success! Thank you for your professionalism! You will be recommended for future events here.”

S. Mckee at Lilian Schick School – Event on June 13, 2014

I received lots of compliments on the quality of the DJ service.

Chris was excellent at picking tracks that suited our reception.
“The DJ was fantastic! Chris was very kind to everyone and open to suggestions. He was also very considerate of the venue and respected the environment.

The evening was great! The DJ and music really does help create the atmosphere and Chris was excellent at picking tracks that suited our reception and encouraged people to mingle and dance.

I would definitely call Grindstone Productions again and refer them to any one who needs a great DJ.”

You were wonderful to work with for both the ceremony and the reception.
“Chris was more than amazing! Thank you soooooo much for taking the time to learn how to play “The Girl” on your guitar and play it for me at our ceremony! It was better than I ever could have imagined and that truly made my day! You were wonderful to work with for both the ceremony and the reception. Our guests were a bit shy of the dance floor at first but as soon as they got a few drinks in them the “idiot” dancing ensued!

I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family!”

Lindsay Crowe – Married on July 20, 2013

Many of our guests complimented his DJ services!
“Chris was excellent! Many of our guests complimented his DJ services! He did a kids dance like we asked, and the kids loved it (parents too because they could let them all have fun and not worry about them getting into trouble). He also gave away prizes for little games on the dance floor etc. which was good for getting people involved. Chris was very professional and we really appreciated him accommodating our requests!”

Thanks for making us get up on our feet and enjoy the night!
“Chris did a fantastic job. He played songs to please all of our guests. This could be seen as a difficult task as the age range was vast.

Thanks for making us get up on our feet and enjoy the night!”
