"The Rillito River Band was invited by Jonas Hunter to be the featured band as part of the Palomino Plaza Concert Series on May 21, 2016. It was a wonderful experience for the band, Jonas could not have been more accommodating, the equipment he provided for our use was far beyond the equipment we have, there were over 100 people in attendance and we would very much look forward to working with Jonas and playing one of his venues again. Thanks Jonas for a job well done."

“I have been in the music and event planning industry for years. Having used many different production companies, Jonas Hunter Productions is now always my first call for all of my sound and lighting needs. He even DJs! Top quality, state of the art equipment, friendly professionalism, and fair prices are what I’ve come to expect from JHP. He has the skill, ability and capacity to handle any concert that I send his way – from intimate house parties to large multiple day outdoor events. My guests regularly compliment the quality of the sound and lighting at my events, and I can count on the best concert experience for my guests when JHP is in charge. I highly recommend this company!”

"This was my first experience working with Jonas Hunter Productions. Jonas took the time to meet with me to discuss our Red and Blue Ball fundraiser and offered his suggestions for me to consider. He also attended a walk-through at the University of Arizona Richard Jefferson Gym, where we were holding the event, to get a better understanding of the layout and potential challenges. As a non-profit organization, it was important that we stayed within our budget. Jonas provided all we needed well within our budget constraints. He was on time, professional and provided great customer service. I would definitely consider him for our future needs. Thanks Jonas"

"Jonas Hunter Productions went above and beyond to ensure our wedding was an amazing party! He worked to ensure our music styles came through the reception and was very open to our thoughts and ideas while also adding his own special flare. I would definitely recommend JHP for any wedding or special event!"
- Emily Elaine Lawson
"I don't know how or if I can properly rate how awesome Jonas is for our event. He played just the perfect selection of songs. Adapted to last minute complications and watched for myself and the bride to be present before playing requested songs or moving forward with the night. If you want a DJ that will help your event go smoothly and less stressful then you need to book Jonas. Jonas, thank you so much for everything you did and making our special day even better!"
- Andrew T.
"Jonas was an excellent DJ for our wedding! Before the wedding, he was always willing to meet and always made meeting easy, timely, and convenient. He arrived early to set up and coordinated with other vendors who needed amplification. He was helpful 100% of the way. When schedules didn't go as planned, he kept the flow going and was quick and efficient in communicating with the right people. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ!!! Jonas was PERFECT in every way!!!!!"
- Alyssa A.
"Jonas was the DJ for our wedding. From our first meeting I knew he was a great match for us! He was organized, on time, and had great equipment. We chose our own music and he added a little of his own to get people up on the dance floor. He helped keep things on schedule thru the evening, and had just the right amount of presence to make the reception fun and didn't distract from us. A perfect event thanks to Jonas!"
- Sheryl R.
"Just wanted to reach out to you to say, "Thank you." The term they use is "DJ" but you were the Master of Ceremonies for our daughter's wedding in March, 2014. You kept the action moving from speeches---and boy can we talk--to cake cutting, flower toss and dancing the night away. Trying to incorporate those fireworks went fabulously!!! The Wedding industry spends over a $1 billion --The best expense is a first class photography and the second best expense is hiring Jonas Hunter Productions.!!! Keep up the good work. And thank you for making our daughter's wedding truly special."
- Kathleen S.
Jonas was awesome! He was the DJ/MC for my daughter's wedding and did a fantastic job from the early planning stages right up to and including the day of! He knew exactly what to play to get our guests up and going...we all danced the night away! I would definitely highly recommend him and would hire him again! A BIG thumbs up!
- Tricia P.
My husband and I highly recommend Jonas. He DJ'd our wedding and he was professional and he showed how he knows his stuff and loved showing it. He listens to detail enough to keep himself well noted and did not lose focus. He had a great attitude and was really funny. To get the great company we received with a reasonable (NOT) overly priced is more then anyone can ask for. We are proud to say Jonas is as best as it gets.

-Randy Accetta, Run Tucson
"Let me say that all members of the band were so happy about their experience in Tucson, and it goes without saying that your professionalism and attention to detail was a huge part of the success of the event! Both Houston Pearson and Barbara Houston, the "elders" of the group, were quite pleased with how they were treated and with the way you made sure that they were comfortable and taken care of. I must thank you myself for that aspect Jonas, as they have been out here doing this for quite a while, and I wanted to make sure that the two of them in particular were happy. I heard so many people talking about how wonderful the sound was and how that made the concert even more enjoyable. Kudos to you and your crew! Back in New York now for a recording session, so headed to that now. Take care Jonas, and best wishes always."

"Jonas was an awesome DJ and we are SO happy we chose him to be a part of our special day! He is fair and affordable enough to work with any budget! He has such a fun and lively personality that was a joy to work with and he is so easy to get along with. He did a great job working with us before the wedding because he is so organized and detailed. He made sure to have all the information he needed in order for everything to run smoothly. Jonas made the wedding fun and exciting and he did a great job including songs that we requested. His great price, easygoing personality, and superior work make him an incredible DJ and we highly recommend him!!!"
"Jonas Hunter Productions did an amazing job, the lighting was phenomenal, and everyone had a blast! I was told by several people that it was the best wedding they've ever been to! I will recommend Jonas to everyone I know getting married!"
"Jonas, thank you very very much for orchestrating the events at our wedding. You did an excellent job at tying everything together and communicating to me how the flow of the wedding events were going. On top of that, everyone had an excellent time. Every guest we have spoken to thus far had a great time throughout the wedding. I also noticed how nearly every age group was up on the dance floor. All of the younger population was up there having a great time dancing, yet you didn't push the parents away either. We had initially planned on not having a bouquet toss or a garter, yet the brides plans changed the day before and you adapted perfectly. We are very grateful to have chosen you as our wedding DJ. We wish you the best in the future and many more happy events in the future! Thanks,"
"I loved having Jonas DJ our Halloween wedding! He worked with me to make sure everything was perfect and ran smooth. I had pretty specific requests when it came to the playlist and he really delivered! He kept to the timeline of the night and made everything so fun. He knows what hes doing and comes very prepared with equipment. Super cool guy; I would definitely recommend him!"
"My husband and I had an amazing experience with Jonas Hunter Productions. From the very first meeting up until the big day he was always available for my ridiculous amount of questions. When we got to the wedding he had set everything up perfectly! From the ceremony music to keeping the guests dancing everything was great. He also made sure that the night moved along smoothly and that we didn’t have to worry about anything! If anyone is looking for a DJ, this is the best one you can find!"
-Elizabeth & Jordan
"Thanks so much for making our party absolutely amazing! Everyone had such a great time. It was so easy to work with you and I am grateful for your prompt attention to all of my questions and how spot-on you were with the playlist - we got so many comments about how good you were at keeping the dance floor busy. You really found your calling."
Jonas, Thanks a million for inviting us, and a trillion for doing such a great job on sound. Afterward, a friend asked if I’d rather play outdoors or indoors, and I said, “In general indoors is better, but tonight the sound engineering was so good it makes it kind of an apples and oranges question. Working with you was a pleasure, and I hope to do so again soon.
