PROFESSIONAL! PERSONAL! CUSTOMER ORIENTED! All words enthusiastically used by our clients to describe our service.

35 years of international DJ experience and 20 years of wedding event planning combine to help you organize and enjoy your party the way you want it. Why is that important, you ask?  Because your wedding should be yours!  It should reflect you and your personality.  It should NOT be based on a DJ's vision of what is easy for him or her to produce.  Experience in organizing, reading situations, adapting to change...all of that is important when making an event run smoothly.  We have all of those qualifications and more.

We plan ahead with you BEFORE your party so that you can sit back and relax (or shake your booty, if you prefer) DURING your party.

We are proud of our service and back it with our reputations.

I have seen Colm CJ Kiggins at many events over the years and he has always done an EXCELLENT Job (from large picnic to smaller events)...so I knew when I got married who I wanted for my wedding!

He is so easy to work with and always accommodates clients based upon their needs (as you know each event is different and so are your customers).

The entertainment for my wedding was AWESOME....Colm CJ Kiggins was very professional, personable and has a VAST knowledge of what music to play fore your crowd to get them dancing....he did an OUTSTANDING Job and everyone at my event had a GREAT time!

His excellent selection of music made our event very SPECIAL....he even accommodated a friend who sang a special song at our wedding at no extra cost.

I highly recommend Claddagh Production for anyone seeking a DJ for their event. He offers a wide selection of music, is able to read the crowd and always does a GREAT Job!!

My bride and I flew into Maryland to get married. I'm Irish and she's in the United States Air Force. Her people are in Maryland so it worked out better to bring us all here.
I found Colm (CJ) because he sounded Irish (Claddagh Productions??), which he is, so we got on famously.
With my bride and I both in Europe, we had to plan everything from a distance. Colm helped us through the entire process, even talking to our other vendors for us to make sure everything would run smoothly.
When we arrived, he had everything ready to go. The fact of the matter is that the first time we met him was at the door to the reception where he had a beer for me and a wine for my wife, bless him!
He did a fine job a taking us through the reception and keeping us on schedule, which was hard since we had so many family there. He even got all of the names right when we were walking in, Irish names too.
The dancing was fun. He had all the music we asked for, even the Irish tunes. My people had a grand time....so did Bridget's.
Anyway, he's a sound man, a fine DJ and very organized. He also gave us a good break on pricing since the wife was Air Force

CJ was the best! We had an outside wedding and unfortunately 2 tornados touched down within 5 miles during our ceremony. CJ stuck with us and road the storm and ended up making our day so awesome! He was so easy to work with. Very professional and very fair priced. I would recommend claddagh productions 100%.
