Ed and his wife were amazing. They rescued us last minute because our original DJ went bankrupt after we paid in full. Ed let us pay in payments online because we were scared to pay in full again. They gave us a very very good rate to help us out. I am originally from a small town up north and my husband is Hispanic from San Antonio. Ed did a great job of balancing the music for both crowds. He would have the Motown and YMCA for my college friends and the Cumbia for my friends / family here. He made the songs flow together well so that we were even able to get my Up North friends on the dance floor to learn to Cumbia & Salsa! Also he was good with the lights. I wanted only white soft lite to start the night for the main dances, then after all of the serious dances were over he lit op the dance floor with all kinds of lights. It was like a dance club! We loved it. He said he could choose with or without the multi-colored lights, it was so much fun with them. Also he met with us before hand and went through everything in detail so that I wasn't stressed. HE had worked at my venue before so he knew how to set up everything. Him and his wife were so nice.

Sorry it has taken a few weeks to get back to you. We would like to THANK YOU greatly for the AWESOME job you did for Shianne's quinceanera. You went above and beyond our expectaions. We loved the lights, haze and especially the Gobo Light. The Dance mood was so AWESOME, you had everyone dancing all night and before you knew it was over. Your performance as a DJ will be recommended to our family and friends. Thank you for being professional, polite and understanding to any changes.
Once again, thank you from Paul, Patricia and Shianne!

Punalu'u Productions was the best D.J. service we could have asked for. ED was very quick to respond to any questions. Needless to say, I had a lot. HAHA. He also knows a ton of music and helped to pick our ceremony, dinner, and reception music. The night was flawless. He had every song set for the time we asked for. No music was ever played to loud or cut too short. It was PERFECT. We had a few requests during our open dance and he played them right away. Our do not play list was also respected. :) I can't say enough good things. The price was also spot on. I had looked for too long for something we could afford and found ED. I am so happy with our decision and would highly reccomend Punalu'u Productions for any event. Thank You Ed! Our wedding was perfect and you helped to make it that way.

I just want to give you a MILLION thanks for the fantastic job you did at our wedding! We cannot get over our ceremony, as that's what we absolutely loved the most. You did such a wonderful job with our ceremony music; you knew just when to start and stop, and you didn't fail me with our special request of my bridal entrance. That touched me the most and I had me crying from begining to end (it's probably why I couldn't even get through my vows!) Lorenzo and I couldn't be more pleased.
As for the party ... wow! Our entrance was right on cue and you couldn't have gotten it more perfect! You delivered 110% with all of our requests, including keeping people on the dance floor and honoring our guests' song request. Oh, and let me not forget to give you thanks for allowing our best man to use your mic to serenade us! It was pretty awesome! You kept me on the dance floor ALL.NIGHT.LONG! I was hurting the next day, but it was well worth it. We got SO many compliments about your service. Thank you so much for keeping our day memorable. It was definitely the best day of our lives, and we are glad you were part of it. :)
PS: People are still talking about our little person dancing to "Gangem Style". Thanks SO much for playing that when you did! If only I had caught it on video ...

Dave and I would like to thank you for giving us the night of our lives!. You had the night under control with your timeline and stuck to it. The music rocked the house!! Your light show was as good as any dance club. You were just so professional, contacting me and meeting up with us to discuss the time line, reviewing it to cover names and details. You definitely kept me (the bride) from any worries. I had no concerns, I knew our wedding reception would be a blast. And it was in fact it exceeded my expectations due to the music you played to get everyone out and rockin?. The fog machine offered great effects as well as the strobe. You even took requests and played them on the fly without delays. Ed I really can?t thank you enough, I honestly still hurt from dancing at our wedding and it?s now 4 days later. We were able to pass your cards out, I would recommend you to anyone interested in your services. You made my night, not only do my legs still hurt but my face too, from smiling and utter enjoyment, and we owe that to you!! Everything I wanted and more. God has blessed you and in turn blessed us. What a night!!!

My dearest Ed,
Dear Punalu'u Productions D.J. Service:
The performance you gave was excellent. Your services made our renewal a memorable night I?m sure no one will forget. I believe the quote ?save the best for last,? is unique to this occasion in that you were just that to us. On behalf of the Irving family we would like to thank you again for such an amazing deliverance of music and professionalism.
Sincerely, Chris & Nikki Irving
So sorry It's taken me a few days to get back to you! Its just been hectic trying to wrap things up with family and get settled back into the daily routine! THANK YOU for your awesome DJing and MCing at our wedding! Everyone had such a great time, especially me and Robert! You were a pleasure to work with from day one, and made my night stress free by keeping us on track! You knew just what to play to keep people on the dance floor! Robert LOVED the way you opened the dance with his music selections; he doesn't even dance in public and he was dancing all night long!! It was AWESOME! I heard nothing but great things from my guests about our DJ, so I know everyone else really enjoyed you as well! No worries at all about the Whitney Houston situation, I actually really appreciate the fact that you kept it about us!

Hello again Robert & Kristine,
Just wanted to THANK YOU both once again and hope you were happy with how the evening turned out and the service provided. The California people were a lot of fun. I loved that they all made it a point to get out on the dance floor and have a great time.
I did however, have a lady come up to me and tell me that Whitney Houston had just died and wanted me to play some Whitney Houston songs. I felt that although it was unfortunate that she had passed...it was totally inappropriate since we were there to honor you guys and celebrate YOUR special day. Not Whitney Houston. Again, thank you for making Punalu'u Productions YOUR choice for musical entertainment on your special day. Please keep me in mind for any future events and keep in mind that return customers get a reduced rate.

I just wanted to say thank you for making our wedding a success. I apologize that we were a little out of hand, but you handled it fabulous, as I knew you would.
Anyway, everyone is still talking about how fun the wedding was and how much they enjoyed it. Literally, every conversation is ?we have not had that much fun since college?. You were a key part to making the wedding so fun and we are very grateful!
Thank you again, if you ever need a recommendation please feel free to give them my email. We have nothing but good things to say!

Subject: Punalu'u Productions - Thanks
I am emailing you to thank you and the Holy Trinity staff for recommending Punalu?u Productions for our wedding reception DJ services. After researching several DJ's and even meeting with other DJ services we could not find one that we liked, so we came to the Holy Trinity staff for help and they recommended Ed Elizondo with Punalu?u Productions.
Ed was very professional, easy to communicate with, and very reasonably priced. We are from Houston and had very limited time in San Antonio to plan our wedding. Ed was very flexible when arranging meeting times, which made being so far away a non-issue.
One of the biggest things we liked about Ed with Punalu?u Productions was that he didn?t charge different prices for different equipment and brought the appropriate equipment to suit your needs. He can do anything from enormous speakers with amazing lights and fog that would rival a rock concert, to a much more modest speaker system, and anything in between. Ed made it clear that his first concern was making our day special, unlike other DJ?s we met with, who seemed to be most interested in making money.
Once again, we would like to thank you and the Holy Trinity staff for recommending Punalu?u Productions and we would hope that you continue to recommend him to future customers. Please share this with the Holy Trinity staff.

Oh my God, where do I start! My wedding planner raved highly about this guy. We had our wedding out at La Escondida Ranch in Helotes, TX. Sandra, (Sandra Puente) La Escondida's event planner says she has Punalu'u Productions D.J Service at the top of her D.J. vendor list. The problem she says is that every bride she sends his way ends up calling her back advising her that he was already booked. We ended up rescheduling our date twice just to find an open date with both the venue and this highly recommended DJ. Ed was outstanding.
He met with us twice. He even came out to the venue when we signed the contract and again to go over everything the week before our wedding. He came through with flying colors. We took Sandra's advice. Her recommendation was to just let him know the different kinds of music we wanted and to just let him do his thing and let him read the crowd.
As soon as we finished our first dances, he kicked off the dance like a rock concert. Lights, smoke and a musical intro that made it seem like we were in for one heck of a ride. Boy were we ever. He had the dance floor packed from start to finish. We even had to tell him that we needed to take a break just to cut cake. As soon as we were done with that, BOOM, we were right back where we left off. Even the police officer working security that night stated that was the most people he had ever see on that dance floor ever. Ed made it seem like we were at a night club and kept saying welcome to the Saturday night dance party at Club Escondida. A couple of my groomsmen and bridesmaids went up to him to request a song. He would play the requested song and then follow it up with four or five similar hits of that era. My wedding party was like YEA! That's a great one too! Ed really was great at reading the crowd not to mention his knowledge of the music of earlier times and today. One hit after another.
Ed also dressed to impress. He even wore a really nice double breasted tuxedo. Ed said he had three tuxedos and would wear the one that would match closest to my groomsmen.
My advice to any bride considering a DJ service, Punulu'u Productions is the best and if you can find an open date, put a deposit down quick and set up a meeting to sign a contract.
Ed, if you get a chance to read this review, thank you for doing such a great job and we look forward to doing business with you again next year at our one year anniversary party. You did say you're willing to travel...RIGHT
I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous job you did at our wedding reception! Clayton and I had a great time and so did our guests. We will definitely keep you in mind for future events and will continue to spread the word about your company to our friends and family.
I also wanted you to know that I posted a review about your company on www.weddingwire.com. I gave you all 5 stars.

I have to commend you on a job well done this past Saturday for Serena's Quinceanera. You were awesome! I have to say, Serena had already warned me that she was not going to dance after the two choreographed dances as she is sooo not the dancing type. Too my surprise, I do not think she EVER left the dance floor! The dance floor was packed the entire time with both teenagers and the older crowd. You mixed up the music perfectly and had the party going all night..people were STILL dancing when it was already time to start packing! Thank you so much for MAKING the party with your awesome DJ'ing! We will definitely be referring family and friends to you.
If you are looking for a DJ please contact Ed @ email@example.com
he is awsome we have had a chance to work with him and we would highly recommend him....
