THUMP SOUND has proven to be the ultimate in disc jockey entertainment for the San Francisco Bay Area, catering to the most critical of audiences.

Our sound systems are nothing less than professional.

In the early 1990’s, we were one of the few DJ companies in the Bay Area bring the large 18″ Black Widows Subwoofers, in addition to the typical full range speakers to most events.  Hence where the name “THUMP” originated from.  We Pushed the limits with an affordable concert-quality subwoofer sound at local events and venues.  We aimed to deliver a higher performance of sound at a fair cost to our customers.  And to this day, we still strive for peak performance with our Pro-Series JBL Speakers and Premium Grade Gear.

We are do not use those tacky DJ gimmicks, but rather about great music and a packed dance floor, filled with energy.  We deeply care about a successful and fun celebration and spend hours prepping before the big day.  Depending on the number of guests, and the size of the venue for your event, we custom tailor the right sound system that fits that need and your budget. We can bring in a sound system as small as two full range Pro JBL speakers, up to two full range STX Series speakers and four 18″ Concert Series SRX subwoofers.

Our service can also provide you and your guests with additional Lighting Effects, Motion Head Lighting, Up-Lighting, and Special Effects (e.g., Confetti Cannon, CO2 Blasters, High Powered Smoke Machines), all at very reasonable rates.

At Thump Sound there is a selection of Disc Jockeys that are available for any occasion. Whether your interests are in a DJ for your Wedding Reception or for a School Dance, you will always be guaranteed to receive the best entertainer(s) to suit your taste and budget.

BREAKING NEWS! – Guests can now text their music request directly to the DJ!

Joe DJ'd our wedding in Sonoma and was AWESOME! I was scared about having a DJ not know how to mix songs, not have the music selection, or play songs I didn't like. Joe set up telephone meetings before the wedding in which he carefully reviewed our song selection, went through every detail of the reception, and was totally on the ball. He arrived on time, looked and acted professionally, had all the right equipment, and DJ'd an amazing night. At one point, he ran out of songs we gave him and he quickly improvised and played songs that he could tell our guests would like. He was also able to mix songs all night and read the crowd to keep the crowd pumped and dancing. I am extremely demanding and have high standards, but this guy far exceeded expectations. I would recommend him for any occasion.

I give Joe/DJ Thump sound 5* for following reasons:
* Very professional to work with
* Great personality, polite and easy to talk to
* He showed up on time, delivered everything as expected. Brought all equipment, setup well ahead of party
* Took ALL our inputs for the type of music and played it all. We hired him 2 mos before the party, he checked in every few weeks/days before the party to make sure we were all in sync. He even inquired about the dress code for the party.
* Had a great selection of latest BOLLYWOOD music - blew us away. Mind you, this is in additional to the latest American pop/dance music

DJ Joe Manifesto was heaven-sent for my company's corporate trade show in September. I was juggling a million details and customer invites and did not have the bandwith to create a compelling playlist, but Joe ran with my basic suggestions and played perfect selections the entire night! Not only were Joe's music choices and pacing on point, he was incredibly easy to work with. He emailed me to clarify all needs ahead of time, and I did not have to seek him out or wait for return phone calls to have details sorted - this was invaluable. He also played through clean up, even after our main guests left and our just our employees and sponsors were connecting, continuing the fun for our team. I cannot recommend Thump Sound enough, it was fantastic to have a such a smooth vendor process and the professionalism was top notch. Thanks for the great event!

They provided a fantastic service for me for my 55 class reunion. he was on top of things gave me a play list with the opportunity to change it. I was very happy thumper sound DJ. This is the place to go. His prices were very fair and reasonable. His follow up was great and he's on my A-list

Thump Sound was our DJ for the Northern California Corvette Club's 60th Anniversary Celebration and made the evening perfect. Oldies to start with and contemporary dance music to end with. The acoustics in our room wasn't the greatest, but his sound system worked well and everyone could hear our speakers for the evening.

I attended my friends wedding who had it up in Napa area. I must say the Dj did a great job working with the newlyweds prior to the big day, since this wedding ran super smooth and there was never a dull moment. The DJ they used was DJ Joe. He did a great job keeping the night moving. Many weddings can drag on or be a bit dull, but he kept the music rolling with some great acoustic remixes of classic tracks during dinner. It made the dinner period more energizing and kept my attention. He did a good job keeping the crowd engaged during the dancing portion. He brought a really solid sound system that filled the room with the right amount of bass. It really was nice to see he wasn't the cheesy corny talkative DJ. He did his job with announcements and didn't drag it on. He let the music speak for the Night and it kept us on the dance floor. His system seemed pretty new and not some 15 year old relic. The led lighting and special lights really lit up the dance floor. I have his card and hope to use him in the future for a SF corporate events or future holiday party. Thank you for doing a great job. I had a fun night at the wedding.

I would book DJ Joe M. again in a heartbeat. He did the uplighting for our Nov. 3 wedding at the Walnut Creek Marriott. I missed out on meeting him in person, but he was super friendly and easy to work with over email. The lighting in the room looked fantastic. He also followed up with me more than once to make sure everything was in order and to our liking. Very friendly and professional. Thank you Thump Sound for helping to make our wedding day amazing!

Angelia V (Moraga, CA)

Dj Joe put amazing songs together for our Halloween party. They included new hits and some awesome old throw backs. Everyone loved every song that played and we danced all night long. He had such great knowledge of which songs flow to the next song being played!!! I would highly recommend him to anyone and plan to use him in the future for other events we have!!!

Raschell J. (Livermore, CA)

I have nothing but positive things to say! I've dealt with some flaky DJ's in my past but this company was a breath of fresh air! I have used Thump Sound a couple times and not once did they let me down! You can't help but love a DJ who can get all your guests on the dance floor and keep them dancing all night long! I would highly recommend!!!! DJ Joe DJ'd my wedding and for my 30th birthday bash! I couldn't thank them enough!!!!

Michelle N. (Dublin, CA)

The perfect balance of fun and professional is only one of the many things that I can use to describe DJ Joe Manifesto. He has been hired for two events at Notre Dame de Namur University (Belmont, CA) and has had outstanding reviews from all our guests each time. He is definitely one of the my go-to DJ's and will be for a very long time.

DJ ability -- excellent! His mixes flow very well from song to song keeping everyone on the dance floor partying all night long! Suffice it to say, this guy knows his stuff.
