Awards & Honors | Cleveland Music Group
We would like to thank our clients and friends for all your votes for us in the 2009 Fox 8 Hot List Contest! After being in third place for the past two years, we made second place this year!
We are entered in this particular contest as a full-service agency, but many of our bands also run as well. So we were very pleased to see that spots 3-5 were taken up by bands from our roster! Redline took the third spot, Heart & Soul placed fourth, and Rick & the Cutting Edge won fifth place.
This couldn’t have happened without our happy clients and supporters taking time out of their day to vote for us. We sincerely appreciate this effort!
Last week, Leigh answered the office phone, and on the other end was a producer from America’s Got Talent. The hit NBC show is holding auditions now and they were looking for special acts to audition. The producer, Shauna, who is originally from Cleveland, offered to set up audition times direct with the producers so our talent would not need to wait in line.
We gave Shauna a few recommendations and asked her to visit our web site to have a look at all the great talent we have to offer. She called back within ten minutes to offer auditions to Frederick Davis of The Orchestra, Tiffany Marchak of The Avenue, and our Wind & Sand Bellydancing troupe.
We are pleased to announce that Frederick Davis and Wind & Sand will both be auditioning. Tiffany Marchak is in talks with the producers along with her fiancé, magician Rick Smith, Jr. America’s Got Talent producers have invited Rick to compete on their show in previous years, but due to contracts and appearances on other shows, like ABC’s Master of Champions and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, it hasn’t worked out. Tiffany has previously appeared on American Idol and ABC’s The One.
Good luck to all of our auditioners, and stay tuned for updates!
Once again, we wish to thank all the brides that voted for us and helped us make The Knot Magazine’s “Best of Weddings” for 2009. This is the third year in a row we’ve been honored by this placement, and we couldn’t have made it without all of the wonderful brides we’ve worked with over the years.
The magazine is on newsstands now. Here’s what they published about us:
This Cleveland company can provide ceremony musicians, reception bands or DJs for your wedding – whatever you need to get the music you want. “Everyone at the wedding said that they were the best they had ever heard!” raves one bride of her band. “The night and atmosphere were perfect!”
We’ve been nominated for another award! Cleveland Business Connects Magazine has nominated us for Best Entertainment. Nominations are created by votes from CBC Magazine subscribers.
CBC is having a Connectors’ Choice Awards ceremony and celebration on March 4th at the House of Blues, and one of our newest bands, the InsideOut Show Band, will be entertaining! The Celebration is open to all for networking, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dancing from 6-9 pm.
WeddingWire, the nation’s leading wedding technology company, just announced that Jerry Bruno Productions has won the 2009 Bride’s Choice Awards™!
For the Cleveland-Erie-Toledo Region, Jerry Bruno Productions is the only winner in the Band category and is also named among the winners in the DJ and Ceremony Music categories.
