Dan Toth

hurricane productions lighting sweet 16 wedding

Dan Toth started working with Hurricane Productions when he was 17. At the time, he was searching for a gig to advance his knowledge and experience in the entertainment field. He approached Hurricane about collaborating after we worked his family member’s Sweet 16 celebration.

They ran the event so smoothly and professionally,” says Dan. “They were also introducing some innovative ideas that I thought were great, which is why I took an interest in them. I approached them, we connected, and the rest is history.”

Since a very young age, Dan has been writing music and singing. His extensive background in entertainment includes major market radio, live music, emceeing, performing, writing, event production, event and artist management, etc. Being able to draw from different parts of the industry allows him to bring a significant amount of experience to the table.

Dan has always been fascinated by the entertainment industry, and while he doesn’t know what exactly drew him to the field, he knows that he belongs in it. In fact, he gave up a seven-year stint in ATV racing in favor of a music and entertainment career.

“It simply just felt right, so I have been pursuing it ever since,” he says.

Since joining the team, Dan has worked with us on events like Rutgers Dance Marathon, which ultimately inspired him to transfer to Rutgers University to finish his undergraduate degree. Through this and other Hurricane events, he was able to connect with new people and embrace the opportunities that came his way.

Dan says he feels at-home among the Hurricane team. He is constantly learning and growing with like-minded individuals who want to see each other excel.

“The most beautiful thing about the team is that we are all aware that we can always keep learning and keep getting better, which is what allows us all to continue to grow,” he says.

Corporate Events - Management, Production, Branding and Entertainment

Corporate_Event_NJ

Few companies can provide Corporate Events with a full-service branding experience as well as management, production and entertainment.

But Hurricane Productions brings 10 years of event expertise to corporate seminars, conferences, trade shows and galas.

Hurricane Productions' most recent event - AARA Trade Show - showcased a full-service corporate event experience:

Event Management:

The live element of any event presents unique challenges. But with its attention to preparation, Hurricane makes sure its clients communicate all of their needs prior to the event.

In addition to countless emails and phone conferences, Hurricane met with AARA's Board of Directors four times within a two month window before the trade show.

On the day of the event, Hurricane created a command station where event specialists directed sound, technology and entertainment from a central hub.

Branding and Design:

Hurricane handcrafted each brandable element of AARA.

Hurricane designed custom visuals that displayed real-time updates to high definition screens around the convention center.

A custom 'Step and Repeat' display reminiscent of a Hollywood Red Carpet helped greet attendees and vendors for group photos.

A team of photographers and videographers documented the entire trade show. This included candid photos of attendees and products. And each vendor received a complimentary framed photo of their booth and staff as a 'Thank You' for participating at this year's show.

Live Stream and Aerials:

Attendees and vendors alike were treated to a live stream around the convention center. But what really caught everyone's attention was a Quadcopter equipped with a GoPro3 camera. The copter flew above the crowd and streamed live video to screens around the convention floor.

Entertainment:

Just like any good trade show, AARA thrives on its vendors' treating its attendees to giveaways and trade-show only deals. In order to make this an attractive centerpiece of the event, AARA employed one of Hurricane's emcees to host the event and entertain the crowd.

Hurricane also provided music for the eight hour event.

Production

Hurricane Productions filled the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center with the JBL PRX Line Array sound system and high powered projection systems for display.

About AARA:
The Asian American Association of Retailers is a not for profit organization representing Convenience Stores, Gas Stations and Liquor Stores in the Tri-State area of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The main objective of AARA is to protect retailers while delivering stronger and more profitable future for their business.

Uplighting

lighting

Our creative Lighting Designers compliments the theme and event colors while bringing life to important elements of any ballroom. Uplighting is not just for the walls it can be used in many ways.

Spot Lighting and Dance Floor Lighting

lighting

We don’t rely on the lights to simply just ‘move to the music’ or flash when the ‘beat drops.’ Our lighting is far from basic. Just as much emphasis is dedicated to lighting visuals as it is on entertainment. We rely on an exclusive, professional staff of lighting designers to operate our concert-quality light show throughout the entire night.

For weddings, we focus on lighting decor and accent lighting. We want your wedding to feel like a professional and polished show. From your entrance to spotlight dances, we use pinpoint lighting scenes to enhance your photo and video visuals.

For Sweet 16, we focus lighting more on enhancing a theme or creating a nightclub atmosphere.

We're not limited to the private event space - our production staff provides lighting for concerts, shows, and other live events.
