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.

Our Djs are experts on the subject of Class Reunions. The secret is to keep the music soft for the first few hours while classmates get reacquainted. A great playlist from back in the day mixes with a wider variety once the dancing starts.
