John Toth has been with Sound Precision Entertainment for more than 5 years, first as a DJ and now as director of operations.

A lifetime Cleveland resident, Toth has a hand in almost everything at SPE, from meeting with clients to DJing events. He also created and maintains the websites for SPE ( and its sister company, Capture Cleveland (

“I love building websites,” the Cleveland State graduate said. “It’s always nice to have a creative outlet.”

Toth has attended hundreds of weddings during his professional career, and because he works hands-on with couples, he’ learned what it takes to make a good event.

“Don’t worry about trying to make everything perfect,” he said. “If you expect everything to be perfect, it won’t be, and you’ll be upset. If you think this will be the best day of your life, then what happens afterward? Don’t put all that pressure on yourself. If something goes wrong, let it roll off your shoulders, and just enjoy yourself!”

When Toth isn’t working at SPE, you can find him trying out new restaurants in the Cleveland area.

“Seoul Garden in Parma is one of my favorites,” he said. “I’ve never had anything there that I didn’t like. If you go, try the soju!”
