About Us

Humble Beginnings

DM Productions was  founded in Watertown, Ma. in 1982 by Dan McCarthy. Dan's love for music was bolstered by his Brother, On-Air Boston Radio Personality  Harry McCarthy aka Justin Clark. It was Justin's enormous record library that got Dan started . As is true today Dan was always in the company of a team of outstanding DJs. The hairstyles might have changed since then but the objective has always been the same. 100% Client Satisfaction, to do our very best to make an event memorable for all who attend.
