JTD Productions Professional DJs

Email | Visit website | 845-853-8912

At the helm of JTD is Dave Leonard, nationally syndicated host of radio UNLEASHED and professional wedding DJ for over 25 years. He’s got the "sixth sense of segue," knowing exactly what song to play next to take the crowd where they need to go. Behind him is office manager Nellie and six other handpicked, experienced and cool DJs.

Our philosophy is to guide the party with the music and not the microphone. The music’s the star, not the dj. JTD’s goal is to be true to your unique tastes without being esoteric, accessible enough for your friends and family without ever being generic or cheesy.

Named after our beloved mascot, Jeffrey the Dog (JTD), we’ve been in business since 1989 and are definitely not your average dj service.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

JTD delivers peace of mind artistically, logistically, and financially.

  • Our DJ’s have the experience and the taste to play music that’s hip without being esoteric and accessible without being cheesy.
  • We know the ins and outs of every venue: where to set up, where to plug in and where the back up help is if needed.
  • We’ve got a DJ for almost every budget, all of them kick butt, and . . .

  • We’ve got back up DJs, back up systems and a million dollars insurance for every job.

These are the reasons that JTD delivers the peace of mind that no one else can: our artistry, our know-how and our people.

There’s no greater luxury than peace of mind and no greater indulgence than shakin’ your booty. AT JTD, we guarantee both.

"Dave was AMAZING! He did everything we asked him to do, played everything we wanted to hear, was perfectly understated and was in tune with the crowd and everyone loved our music. P.S. We got married in a blizzard and Dave was there three hours early and all set up."

Examples of my work

“Dave Leonard from JTD Productions was worth every penny we spent! His company offers less expensive DJ’s but after our first conversation we knew that Dave was our guy and that we could trust him with every aspect of our reception music. My husband and I love to dance and love music, but had a hard time figuring out how to put the music we liked into some sort of “favorites” list to play at our wedding. So we trusted Dave to do that for us, and boy are we glad we did. He got the party started right away and didn’t stop until 2am! I’d like to say that all the hard work we put into the wedding was what made it such a great day, but I know in the end, without a good DJ you don’t have a good party. So thanks Dave for giving us the best wedding dance party! I highly recommend Dave Leonard to anyone seeking a great DJ for their wedding, he will not disappoint!”

“Dave had great recommendations. We met with Dave and immediately felt confident that he got the “vibe” we were hoping for and had the experience to pull it off in a relatively non-traditional venue. We had him DJ our wedding at the Kaaterskill. He provided sound for the ceremony (literally figured out a way to mic our officiant in the middle of a field), music for cocktail hour and dinner, and DJ’ed the reception. Music was very important! We felt like the music was responsible for the flow and tone of the entire wedding – and it was! Dave Leonard is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! From ceremony to cocktail to dancing, the whole night was perfect. He kept people dancing for hours – no one wanted him to stop. It was as if he read our minds for the music for the entire night. He kept our friends dancing for the entire night…I don’t think anyone every sat down. Dave’s rate is a bit higher than some of the other DJs at JTD, but in our opinion he was worth every penny.”

“Hiring Dave Leonard was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. And that’s saying a lot, as we were very lucky on the day as everything worked out very well. Dave just made things extra special. I remember reading reviews of him 10 months ago and thought, “wow! this guy sounds really good”, but is he worth the premium price? His service offers a number of DJs for less, but why is he worth more? It’s because he’s seriously just that good. We gave him full flexibility to choose whatever songs he liked for our reception, and I liked every single one of them. All of guests continually commented on how awesome the music was. Many of those engaged couples who attended were also commenting how they’d like to hire a DJ like Dave for their wedding, as many of the DJs they heard in the past were not that memorable. My wife was so impressed and appreciative at how he was able to keep things right on schedule for the reception. We were so overwhelmed with visiting friends and family throughout the night that we had zero time to queue the DJ for all sorts of things (cake cutting, couples dances, speeches, etc.). Dave made everything run seamlessly and on time. A huge win!! He also stayed later for our after party and played a whole list of tunes we had ready on an iPod just in case. A good buddy of mine who never dances was on the dance floor the whole night. I couldn’t believe it!! He was high-fiving me every 5 minutes as he was having a great time. Thank you DJ Dave!! I’d rate you 6 out of a 5 if I could. Keep spinning the awesome tunes and best of luck with your radio show!! -Graham and Jeanette (a very happy married couple).”
