The Best DJ

Pete is without a doubt the best DJ I’ve ever seen. From the moment we booked him, we knew he genuinely cared to make our wedding as special as he possibly could. The online planning tools were super easy to use and he made sure that we were on the same page with all the little details before our wedding. Not only did he do an amazing job of MCing the evening, he got the dance floor PACKED!! He incorporated a lot of our song selections and also added his own touch. It’s been over 3 weeks and people are still talking about how much fun they had. We are so grateful that we got to work with Pete and Big Sand Productions. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

We partied all night long!

What can we say about Pete and Big Sand Productions... Freakin' fantastic! We booked Pete, who is also the founder of the business, to DJ our wedding and we couldn't have been happier working with him and his team. He was super simply to work with, a great communicator, and made the entire process easy. He immediately got our style of music and kept the party going all night long. If this says anything about him, my wife was on the dance floor all night long! What we really enjoyed is that all of their staff are also certified coordinators. This made it super simple to work with him as he was able to fill in the little gaps where our coordinator needed assistance when necessary.

We also opted to book their Photo Booth which was an absolute hit at the reception. They provided everything - backdrops, props, multiple prints for guests as well as our guest book, and all the photo files for sharing online as well. (We literally spent hours looking through them all afterwards laughing and reminiscing with friends & family.)

If you're looking for a wedding DJ, or a DJ for any event, Pete and his team are a great choice and make the entire process super easy.

DJ/Owner

I've worked as a professional DJ and Musician for the past 7 years. I got my first ever DJ gig at my brother's wedding at our family cabin on Big Sand Lake in Minnesota. I had so much fun doing it that I spent the next 5 years training with the best DJs I knew and working to build my own company. Once I finally launched, I of course named my company Big Sand Productions :)

Ever since, I have been fully committed to making each wedding I DJ as uniquely fun and memorable as I can. I have developed a myriad of skills in this industry and am confident that I will make your wedding truly special.
