About DTP

DTP is an award winning management company, dedicated to providing only the highest quality of music at your event. We manage five of the best bands in the Midwest that consist of the best musicians in the area and only book bands within our company in order to guarantee the best customer service possible.

Recently DTP was awarded “Best Live Music” for 2012 from the Perfect Wedding Guide Vendy Awards, “Bride’s Choice Award 2013” from WeddingWire and “Best of The Knot 2012 & 2013.” Owner Jon Spindler is very hands-on and is dedicated to making every event a success and ensures it runs smoothly. All of Downtime Productions’ bands are professional bands with the primary goal of presenting a fun and professional musical entertainment experience for every audience. All musicians have studied music at the college level and do this as a profession, not a hobby.

DTP is a perfect fit for all day-of music needs with options ranging from a small jazz ensemble or strings for a wedding ceremony or cocktail hour, to a large jazz ensemble for dinner music, to a full variety band with six to 13 pieces to dance the night away to. All five of the Downtime Production bands offer something different, but in the end will all have the same result – a memorable night!

You can visit our video pages, which will give you an idea of our professionalism and how the band sounds live. DTP prides itself in only using live musicians and not recorded tracks, which also ensures smooth transitions between the songs without stopping. All bands cover everything live, ensuring a high energy event every minute of your reception and want to keep the evening about you, and is why we do not display signage of the band.

Every band performs a vast assortment of music from Soul to Oldies to Current Pop Hits, and everything in between. They will also learn and perform two songs that can be included throughout the special night, such as the couple’s first dance or father-daughter dance.

Recorded music will be played during band breaks to ensure continuous listening pleasure, or clients can upgrade to the continuous band option where the band does not break. Emceeing adaptations will be made at the client’s discretion, as well as band size, instrumentation, and acoustical levels to accommodate any facility. The owner, Jon Spindler also meets with each client prior to the wedding day to coordinate all of the details, which ensures a seamless reception.

With each band’s wide variety of music, high energy, and quality sound, everyone will be sure to have a great time and can guarantee complete satis faction. Each band offers several different packages that can accommodate all of the various aspects of your event. With pricing starting as low as $1,500.00, we are sure to have the best band to fit your needs.
