Dustin Coval

President, Office Manager, Equipment Manager

Dustin Coval

Dustin, a 1996 graduate of The Greater Johnstown Career And Technology Center, founded Top Dog Productions in May Of 1995.   Dustin started out in the DJ business by doing backyard parties and small taverns. A couple years later Dustin made the decision to become more serious about being a Professional DJ and treat the business as a career and not a hobby. In order to gain more experience, Dustin started working as an assistant for a few local DJ’s. Throughout the years, (the former) “Top Dog Disc Jockeys” continued its successful journey as an interactive “DJ service” but due to ever-changing technology and client demands, Dustin re-launched the company as the now known “Top Dog Productions, Inc.” The company now had a new business model & offered more services including small-scale sound reinforcement, A/V services, lighting design, etc. And would continue to grow & expand even more.

Now In 2015, Dustin, alongside business partner, Dustin Greene (and of course a dedicated staff) continue to bring Top Dog Productions to a whole new level. When not “Spinnin’ the tunes”, fine-tuning his audio system for the next event, or transforming a venue into someone’s dream wedding reception, Dustin can be found networking with other experts in the field,  researching the newest trend in the industry, & attending several DJ conventions & seminars in order to better himself and the business. Some of his other duties include all bookwork in the office, and design and maintenance on equipment setups.  Dustin is also very knowledgeable in not only the business aspects of the industry, but also the technical end as well. Other disc jockeys and musicians often look at Dustin as the local “Gear Guru”, seeking advice before making their own equipment purchases.
