Hi! I’m DJ Mark , aka The RunMC. I’m a United States Marine who was honorably discharged right here in beautiful San Diego. Needless to say, I decided to stay in San Diego after my contract ended. After the Marine Corp, I started a business as a personal trainer, developing many different prevention-related initiatives and a dance fitness program for fitness. For many years I also worked hand in hand with underserved communities in the San Diego County area, providing these same services for free. Little did I know that my passion for health would lead to an exciting career as a nationally requested DJ and emcee.
My career shift started when I was invited to warm up thousands of runners for the Hollywood Half Marathon. It went so well that I was invited to do it again and again for many different events all over the country. I could have never guessed at the time that my ability to lead thousands of people with warm-up choreography, love for music, and energetic personality would allow for an easy shift into emceeing and DJing.
I still remember my first emcee and DJ event like it was yesterday. I was in Hollywood Florida for the second rendition of the Hollywood Half Marathon, doing another warm-up when the radio call that would change my life came in. It was the event organizer of the Hollywood Half and he was in a bind. For some reason, he could not make it to the start of the event. “Mark,” he said, “I am going to need you to emcee this event.”
Talk about being thrown into the fire. I was more than a little nervous. But I cued up the music, sipped some water and went to work. By the time the dust settled, the event organizer, the Mayor of Hollywood, Florida, and spectators alike let me know without a shadow of a doubt that emceeing and DJing events was the right move for me.
Since my emcee and DJ debut, I have traveled the nation hosting and DJing events both small and large and it’s been one blast of a ride. I DJ emcee and host Corporate, running, and athletic, and Non Profit events of all kinds! I also excel at weddings, conferences, parties and interviews. Basically if you need a good DJ|MC combo with the right mix of professionalism and enthusiasm……I’m definitely your guy!
The fact is I love this. I love music (all types of it), I love to dance, I love to laugh and I love having a great time. These are all things I bring to the table for every event I attend. My name is Mark Jones, aka the RunMC, and if you’ll have me I’m ready to bring a great time to your next event!
GET TO KNOW MARK
Mark was AMAZING! We first saw him at the Shadowridge open house and were immediately vibing on him. We hit it off with him right away. He asked us what type of music we liked and our only request was that he kept people dancing. We didn’t want anyone in their chairs. And Mark delivered way beyond our expectations. The dance floor was always packed! We had a lot of shy people but the music brought everyone to the dance floor! We also got up lighting that made the dance floor and the whole venue pop! Dj Mark had called us in advance to ask what songs we would like and we left it totally up to him.
The only songs we chose were the father daughter dance and our first dance. We put all our trust into his judgment and he did not fail us. He even suggested “the shoe game” which we had never heard of. Where the couple sit back to back and answer questions about each other using their shoes.
“Who’s the better cook? Who is the better kisser? Who is messier?” It was really fun and entertaining for everyone. We wish we could get married again just to have him back! We’re recommending him to EVERYONE! Birthday parties, Graduations, Anniversaries, Quinces, Anything! If you get Dj Mark It’ll be a fantastic time!
David & Melody
DJ Mark was AMAZING and perfectly tailored the playlist to our guests. There wasn’t a dull moment on the dance floor and we get continuous complements about how munch fun our guests had dancing. I highly recommend Dancing DJ productions for any event. Their client planning portal was super user friendly to put together a wedding timeline/playlist and they will set up a phone call or skype session to go over details with you before the big day. ABSOLUTELY request DJ Mark because he definitely knows how to keep the party going!

AHHH Mark Jones is an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING DJ. We’ve had many Employee Appreciation parties where everyone left early bc the DJ wasn’t good but last night was the first in many years where ALL the partners said this is our best party yet thanks to the DJ. His energy from start to finish kept the crowd involved and out on the dance floor. And his music playlist fit everyone, not just one individual. Definitely well organized and a lot of fun! Will definitely be using him again next year!! So kudos for a job well done, everyone was impressed!!

Dj mark was the perfect match and Best Wedding DJ MC in San Diego
We are SO grateful to DJ Mark not only for the amazing vibe he created on our big day, but also to how responsive and helpful he was throughout the entire planning process. My husband and I really felt connected to him from our first phone call, and it was so clear that he wanted to learn more about us and our relationship and our vision for the day. The online planning portal helped streamline all the information we needed to provide him, and he called the week before our big day to go over every detail together to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted.
So many of our guests came up to us during our event and in the weeks since the wedding to tell us that they have never been to a wedding where so many people were on the dance floor the ENTIRE time and stayed until the end to dance! Thank you DJ Mark for bringing our vision to life and for creating a sound and energy that truly represented not only my husband and I, but all of the family and friends who had come to celebrate with us.
Darlington House Knowland Wedding
I booked Mark Jones for through Dancing DJ Productions and he was so much fun. He provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner/reception. We got so many compliments on the music and he played almost every song that we put on our must play list. He got out on the dance floor with the guests at some points.
He was enthusiastic and so much fun. Mark also played an amazing selection of piano renditions of some great songs and several people asked us if we picked this music because it went with our personality so well. We didn’t pick the music for before the ceremony, this was just his great taste and research. What a wonderful DJ. I would highly recommend Mark Jones, don’t look any further he is amazing. Thank you Mark for your services!
Despite meticulous planning, our wedding day was even more chaotic than most weddings (including bridesmaids and groomsmen unable to attend last minute and the procession line-up changing every five minutes… in addition to so much more). Countless things about the day went wrong and were so stressful, but I cannot say enough good things about our DJ, Mark.
He was a breath of fresh air and handled the constant changes with such ease and flexibility. He was kind, confident, professional, and overall a joy to have as part of our day. People have told me for months how much fun they had dancing at our wedding, and I attribute that in no small part to Mark! Thank you so much to Mark and to everyone at THERUNMC!
Excellent and Fun
We had DJ Mark at our wedding. A few days before the wedding Mark spent about an hour talking with us, going over the schedule, event, expectations, and answering all our questions. We were planning the wedding without a planner and Mark’s expertise was incredibly valuable and we changed our schedule based on his suggestions.
Day of was perfectly smooth, he kept everything on schedule and we had the most fun with dancing. Mark even was able to perfectly accommodate our specific line dances. All my guests spoke highly of Mark and I’m thankful he was there for our day. We also upgraded and used the up lighting and photo booth and recommend both. He had a detailed spreadsheet to select and assign songs which was also very user friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.
