Fast Forward...

     Well, you could say things got better after that first show!  Jonny continued to DJ for weddings and parties, and soon, clubs and bars, and he eventually learned to hold on to the microphone tightly.  The combination of a great voice and fun personality made him a highly sought-after DJ,  that eventually led to his first radio and TV voiceover gigs.

Taking the Plunge...

     After a number of years working with various companies, and in locations around the south Twin Cities Metro, Jonny decided to put it on the line for himself and in 1995, created Birdland Productions.  Focusing specifically on the south metro and southern Minnesota, Jonny cold-called hundreds of locations, one-by-one, until he was working 5-6 nights per week as a full time DJ.  Soon, he began to get calls for private parties and weddings and he was off to the races.  But something was missing...

Singing for his Supper...

     When Jonny realized how much he missed singing, he did what any astute businessman would do; he added (ulp!) karaoke.  Before long, his karaoke shows became some of the most popular shows around, with games, trivia, and of course, that voice.  By combining his DJ show with his singing abilities, Jonny was receiving calls to perform for weddings and corporate parties from North Dakota to Wisconsin, and International Falls to Iowa.  As he grew, so did his company... but there was still so much more to do!

Fast Forward Again...

     Since those earlier days, Birdland Productions has added a new office, a recording studio, great new staff and grown into a first-class Booking Agency specializing in one-of-a-kind entertainment, a Production Studio for music, radio and TV, and the ONLY place to find one of the country's busiest and most versatile performers - Jonny Bird!  With our new Executive Production Manager, Anna Bird, now running the show, and our upcoming move out to Las Vegas, we look to take it to the next level.  Thanks again for your continued interest in Birdland Productions.  See you at the show!
