Client Comments & Reviews
Guests “Favorite Wedding Ever!”
Run Avril Run was exactly what we were looking for to have the most fun wedding reception. Every single guest was on the dance floor all night long! Not only is the band well-seasoned and very professional, but they could not be nicer to work with or more fun to dance and party with all night long!
The Avenue Band is nothing short of AMAZING!
The Avenue band surpassed our expectations and helped make our reception nothing short of incredible! Tiffany helped me plan the schedule for the whole reception and flawlessly made the whole thing go off without a hitch! Her calmness in moving the reception along kept both my husband and me calm the whole night and allowed us to enjoy ourselves the entire time. My Maid of Honor surprised us with a Flash Mob which included our entire 280 guests and Tiffany worked with her to make it happen and recorded the whole performance for our memories in addition to the band chiming into the recorded music.
As a whole, I just can’t say enough. If you’re planning a wedding, HURRY UP and book the AVENUE BAND! They will help make your wedding an event to remember!
TCB provided a fantastic experience for my wedding guests. They played an excellent selection of music and were very professional to work with. I even got the chance to come up on stage an serenade my new wife in song! 100% recommend and would definitely book again for my next event.
Best. DJ. Ever.
We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ for our wedding. As soon as we met Herby we knew that we would vibe well with him. He got us. He knew our style right away, gave us helpful feedback on how to make things flow and work together cohesively and all around just clicked really well with us. Our music was flawless from beginning to end. Our dance floor was packed non-stop and everyone had an absolute blast. He knew how to cater to our guests’ wishes taking some requests, but he never lost the vibe that Ricky and I wanted to have for the night. We have heard nothing but positive feedback not only about the music but about any encounter that our guests had with him as well. He’s positive, energetic and just brought an all around good atmosphere to our night. We honestly couldn’t have had a more amazing experience. Our only regret is not having another big event to host so that we can do it all again.
Exceptional Jazz duo
Bob Esterle/Sax and Dominic Reto/Keyboard are an outstanding Jazz Duo. They embraced our Tropical theme along with their extensive repertoire. Bravo and thank you!
We had The Bottom Line play out our college’s Reunion Weekend. They were an excellent choice! Guests enjoyed themselves, danced along to the music, and complimented them well after the event. Their range of music was great for an audience that varied in age and musical tastes.
BEST WEDDING BAND EVER
From the beginning, CLE Music Group and Kyle of the K Street Band were so easy to work with. They helped with any questions or concerns we had throughout the planning process. When it came to the big day, Kyle came to us with exactly what he needed and everything could not have been more perfect. These guys are the real deal, they know how to keep the guests dancing and truly enjoying themselves! I recommend them to anyone and everyone! (Even if it’s not for a wedding!) We could not have been more happy!
My bride, guests and I were so fortunate to have RadioActive help celebrate our big day. It truly was the best entertainment for an awesome party. They were very accountable with playing what we wanted; while, still knowing the vibe of the party and playing to our guests. I was a little worried about playing music through my phone for first dance, father daughter and mother son. But they assured me they would take care of playing the songs through my phone. They completely took control of my playlist and allowed me to enjoy my wedding. It was great! The band was very welcoming and accommodating. Again. Best decision we made.
We used Scott Jones as our wedding DJ, the Sonata Strings for our ceremony music, and Pete Cavano as our cocktail hour entertainment. We absolutely loved all of them!! Cleveland Music Group made sure all musical aspects of our wedding were on point all day long. Scott far exceeded our expectations, he is super friendly and easy to work with. He definitely gave us peace of mind knowing that he has everything under control. I really cannot say enough good things about Scott; my husband and I were just saying we need to have another event just to stay in touch! Trust me, Cleveland Music Group is by far the best choice for such a special day in your life.
(The uplighting also turned out amazing! Thank you!!)
Best decision I ever made was to hire The Orchestra for my daughter’s wedding! Guests young and old were entertained & danced all night long. From the start of dinner music to the last song, guests never stopped asking where we found this terrific band! Oh, and by the way, Cleveland Music Group is a dream to work with!!!!
EPIC Wedding Dance Party
DJ London Bridges and his team made my wedding absolutely unforgettable. I truly cannot believe how well they carried out my vision and ensured that the event will be talked about for years to come. Their unrivaled talent, charisma and stage presence was magic and I feel so lucky we were able to hire them. All of my guests are asking about these guys and several want to hire them for upcoming events. They have truly mastered the art of music, MC and event management and I am so grateful. Grammy-worthy DJ and musicians and would not be surprised to see these guys at music festivals in the near future.
We have gotten nothing but great feedback about DJ Scott Jones. Scott did such a wonderful job. He was so personable and was very easy to communicate with the entire night. The guests loved the music and everything about what he did. He did a great job!!
Book this band!
If you want to throw a real party you need to book We Are The Radio. Not only did Brandon expertly and professionally emcee the event but the band absolutely killed it. The dance floor was immediately packed and the only reason people left was to grab a drink or hit up the bathroom only to immediately return. The charisma of this group is off the charts. From vocals, to music quality, to dance moves everything was top notch. I can’t tell you how many of our guests have contacted us in the following days reporting dance related injuries from the nonstop party this band provided. To sum it up – if you pass on this act, you are missing out!
We were so happy to have chosen The Element for our children’s wedding. Erin was so easy to work with; from contract to execution she didn’t miss a beat. She was proactive in contacting us to make sure we had the kind of music and vibe we wanted (both for the wedding and while on band breaks) and that all special dances were covered. Our guests are still complimenting us about the band. They made the party extra special and full of energy. I know that bands like this perform at least every weekend and they kept it fresh!
6/17 Wedding at Ariel International Center
My husband and I were lucky enough to have The Bearded DJ, Eric Smith, DJ our amazing wedding. He was such a pleasure to work with, and to be honest, one of our favorite vendors! Eric really listened to us when meeting before the wedding and was able to match the music to our wants, as well as the crowd wants on the day of! We were especially impressed when Eric ended the night with a song that my husband and I had briefly talked about that meant a lot to us! The dance floor was always completely full (people were actually dancing next to the dance floor because there was not enough room!) and Eric did a great job interacting with the crowd! We received so many compliments on how great Eric and the music was, with some friends saying it was the best “party” they had ever been to. I would highly recommend him and look forward to seeing him at our friends wedding in a few weeks! Thank you Eric! You helped me our day perfect!
Amazing Band! Had our wedding guests out on the dance floor all night! (Even before dinner!)
Tony and The Element were amazing! Tony was great to meet with and accommodated all of our song requests. They were so flexible the wedding day and our guests were having so much fun! People were out dancing even before dinner was served!
We received many compliments from guests about how fun they were and how they played such great music. I as the bride especially enjoyed them letting me come on stage for my favorite song! They also were so entertained by a few of our more “energized” guests and their dance moves. Thank you for making our wedding night celebration so much fun!
A Perfect Night!
The Orchestra was absolute perfection for our wedding. They had everyone on the dance floor all night and Dwayne made our evening run so smoothly. The music was diverse, they were engaged with our guests and we are still hearing from people that they just “loved the band!” Thank you for helping us dance the night away!
TCB was amazing! Their sound was perfect, they had an excellent mix of songs they played that kept everyone on the dance floor. Many guests came up to me telling me how amazing they were!
Chris was the perfect DJ for us! He nailed the music for the evening and went with the flow of everything even though I had the order wrong. (Sorry!!) I felt so bad. But he made me feel like it was okay! Everyone has been telling me how much they enjoyed the music and were extremely happy about the mix of old and new! I am feeling so lucky that Chris was our DJ! He was perfect!
A successful post prom event!
The photo booth fun showed on the kids faces… they had a blast with this!
DJ B provided great background music for our event… all the right songs at just the right volume to keep the energy level on a high note. Several kids made a point of saying what great job he did and that they really liked his set-up. He also did a great job on our various announcements throughout the evening (some planned, some spur of the moment). All around very friendly and accommodating.
We hired DJ Chris only 2 weeks before our wedding. He had very little time to prepare, yet did an amazing job and listened and fulfilled all our requests no matter how outlandish and international. We had a crowd of mid-30 y/o and mid-50 y/o guests, some Israeli, some Russian, and some American. He managed to keep all of us dancing the entire time with a great selection of music. He also communicated with our Rabbi as requested to coordinate the ceremony. Chris was great about answering texts and emails and was so pleasant to work with! CMG was so helpful in finding a last minute DJ with suggestions of who might work out best and a very smooth, professional experience.
DJ Dan made our wedding reception a dream come true!
DJ Dan was very professional from the beginning. He was easy to contact and answer any questions we had regarding the big day. On the day of the wedding, he made sure everything ran smoothly for the entrance, then he quickly got the party started as promised. Our guests all had a wonderful time enjoying the music and dancing, from the little kids to the grandparents. Dan was instrumental in our day being absolutely perfect. He even made us CDs of all the music played throughout the event so we can have those memories forever. Thank you so much Dan for going above and beyond!
Chris was a great DJ at our May wedding. He did the music for our ceremony perfectly and easily adapted to the two changes in our reception timeline. Guests were constantly dancing! I would highly recommend!
A number of guests told us it might have been their favorite party EVER because the band and music were so great and people never left the dance floor. People kept asking where we found The Sly Band because everyone loved them.
The Orchestra played at my daughter’s wedding. They were FABULOUS! They are the perfect wedding band. They are both great musicians and entertainers and they appeal to both young and old. Everyone was up and dancing throughout the entire evening. A number of guests approached me and asked: “Where did you find this great band.” I would highly recommend them.
One of the top priorities for our wedding was having a band. We spent a lot of time searching for the perfect band and came across Cleveland Music Group online. Scott Jones was extremely helpful in the initial process and was always very responsive. We ended up choosing The Avenue and couldn’t have been more happy with the outcome! Tiffany was great to work with leading up to our wedding and she did an amazing job emceeing. We were absolutely blown away by how good the band was. They played everything from oldies, to Motown, to top 40. The dance floor was packed with guests of all ages the entire night, and we received so many comments on how great the band was! Even those who preferred not to dance said that they simply enjoyed listening to the band, they are that good! We would highly recommend The Avenue and are so thankful that we chose them for our wedding!
Kept Everyone Dancing!
DJ Eric Smith did a fantastic job of honoring our biggest request – to keep everyone dancing! Our guests had a great time and gave us many compliments about the music. Thank you DJ Eric!
We hired The Avenue for our wedding and they were outstanding! They certainly made our wedding reception and kept all 300 guests on the dance floor all night long! The Avenue and Cleveland Music Group were super easy to work with during the planing phases as well. Thanks for everything!
Knocked it out of the park!
The Sly Band was fantastic!!!
The extremely talented musicians brought a ton of energy and kept the dance floor full all night. We could not have asked for a better band at our wedding!
Cleveland Vault/Rock Hall of Fame Gig
Tony Howard was a pleasure to work with. Very responsive, knowledgeable, and his selections were spot on. I gave him very little time to work and he came through in more ways than one.
My corporate client was shocked by the quality and professionalism of the two artists we hired very last minute. Laura Varcho and her guys were the perfect musical accompaniment for our speakeasy themed event and went out of their way to match the theme and genre requests.
Nate Jones braved the early May Cleveland cold to welcome our guests to the Rock N Hall of Fame. He arrived early and played beyond his contracted time because of shifting timelines. Great mix of classic and modern hits. I even caught him playing songs from OH heroes The Black Keys! Perfect combination of local flavor for such hallowed grounds.
DJ Bill Bowen did a wonderful job at our prom. Students were on the dance floor the entire night!
DJ Brent was awesome. We hired CLE Music Group to provide entertainment for our annual State of the Company meeting. Normally we don’t have entertainment, but we were also celebrating a big win for 2016 at our store and threw a party! DJ Brent was on time, had his equipment set on time and was ready to go at 8 am! We got through all of the formalities of our company meeting and then it was time to party. DJ Brent got our employees out of their seats to have an impromptu dance party/contest. What a great morning and great event. CLE Music Group never disappoints! Thank you for making our celebration a great one!
Eric is awesome!
DJ Eric Smith totally got the vibe we were going for at our wedding. So glad we picked him.
Also, we ADORED the open air photo booth and so did our guests. I love that we not only got a physical copy of each photo, but we also got a digital copy of each one on a thumb drive. A must have for any wedding.
Nothing short of amazing!
From the beginning when we first started working with Scott, we have been nothing but impressed with Cleveland Music Group. The communication was wonderful when we were planning the timeline of our wedding. Erin from The Element was terrific to work with. She was easy to communicate with, upbeat and instantly I felt at ease with our music selection. Leading up to our wedding we talked with Erin many times and she was willing to work with us and our selections. During our wedding she was great, watching the flow of the evening. The band was outstanding! We had many compliments and our guests loved the sound and selection the band played. Thank you for making our wedding truly special!
The absolute best band that will keep your guests talking!
We’ve hired The Orchestra for the past seven years to be a part of our annual fundraising gala. They are, without a doubt, the absolute best!! Each year, countless guests comment on just how amazing the band is. Not only are they amazing to work with in the planning of the event, they executive brilliantly and make our event what it is. If the band weren’t available on our desired event date – we’d change the date!!
Great Job at Jump Back Ball
DJ Eric Smith was great to work with. He had quite a busy night, DJing in multiple spaces, one right after the other. But he made it work. Eric was prompt. He set up quickly and easily. And he played just the right kind of music. He also worked well with the other entertainers at Jump Back Ball. I’d be happy to use him again.
Our annual holiday party was a huge success! DJ London Bridges nailed it. He played a variety of genres and also managed to play all requests! He was by far the best DJ we’ve ever had! We will definitely request his services in the future. Thank you!
DJ Kyro did an outstanding job adhering to my music playlist as well as obtaining the ethnic music we requested for my children’s baptisms. He read our guests comfort level well and played the music that was appropriate for the afternoon! I am beyond pleased with his effort and performance and would definitely use him/recommend him for any future events that I coordinate personally or for the community events that I have involvement with.
Rocked the house… all night!!!
Guests thought the wedding was awesome. DJ DC is a great entertainer who knows how to bring the energy while still making the focus of the event all about the bride and groom. Everyone I talked to had great things to say about him. They also loved the music. I really could not have been happier. Grateful for Dan and his passion to make it an awesome event for everyone.
We hired DJ London Bridges for our client’s fundraiser this past weekend. He was very fun to work with. Gave a very awesome vibe in the venue. We have received nothing but great reviews of everything. Thanks Brandon!
Very professional, personal and fun!
We had a great time planning and organizing our wedding with DJ Chris. He was personal from the get-go and we also were very thankful for how professional he was with detailed outlines of our reception layout. We thoroughly enjoyed having Chris as our DJ!
Beautiful Harp Music for our Wedding
Ginny was great! Very accommodating and professional. She played the harp for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Her music was beautiful, with a wide range of genres represented. We are so appreciative of her talents and contribution to our wedding day!
Having Tricky Dick play at our wedding was the best decision we made! They created such a fun atmosphere, the dance floor was never empty, and they took the time to hear what my husband and I wanted out of the day. We have no complaints and I would recommend them to anyone!
To say that we were thrilled with Tricky Dick, would be an understatement. They were complete professionals from the moment we inquired, through the planning, and during the reception. Tony took the time to even meet with the Bride and Groom during the weeks prior to their wedding so he could get to know them as a couple. We have ridiculously large families, and had a very large reception. Somehow the band managed to keep everyone happy from the ages of 4 to 94. They even provided little light up rings and necklaces as well as blow up guitars for the children. The dance floor was never empty, which was phenomenal. I really believe that receptions need only three elements to be a success- food, beverages, and great music. The fact that so many of our guests told us that they had more fun at this wedding than others they’ve have attended is directly attributed to this great band – Tricky Dick! Thank you for everything!
The best wedding ever, our dance floor was never empty!
The Orchestra was absolutely INCREDIBLE at our wedding! The dance floor was never empty and our wedding planner and guests kept telling us that they had never been to a more fun wedding or seen a dance floor so packed ALL NIGHT. The music selection was perfect and so fun. We wish we could relive the night again!!
THANK YOU TO THE ORCHESTRA FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING SUCH AN INCREDIBLE PARTY!!!!
Everyone loved the music and raved about DJ DC. He kept people on the dance floor and was so organized. Thank you so much for helping to make our night perfect!
Simply the Best
Once again, The Orchestra delivered. They played at our daughter’s wedding two years ago and were fantastic. So, we hired them again for Daughter #2, and we were blown away by them! I am still getting compliments on the music and the fun our guests had on the dance floor. They are an amazing group of musicians and vocalists, and are simply The Best in the Cleveland area–hands down. What a night! Thanks to CLE Music Group and Dwayne and The Orchestra for making our daughter’s wedding night absolutely a night to remember.
D.J. Eric Smith was ON POINT when it came to our Wedding Reception Music and Introductions. He was fantastic and kept the dance floor rockin’! He was extremely professional and was everything we hoped for and more. Thank you Cleveland Music Group and Eric for making the night one we will never forget. Music is so important to us and we are SO thankful we picked Eric as our D.J.! What a great guy to have on your Team there at the Cleveland Music Group! Thank you again for the memories.
I truly can’t speak more highly about The Element band. We chose to use the brass (trumpet and saxophone players) and the band really nailed the night. Our dance floor was packed from start to finish; our guests were totally into the music. Erin (the lead singer) has a lovely voice! She was so great to work with; from the planning stages on. She worked with us to create a unique playlist for our wedding that we wanted. They even learned a few songs for us! (Just FYI; if you want the dance floor rocking, go for the YMCA!)
The Element band did an awesome job. We could not be happier about the performance and the energy of the night. Exactly what we were looking for!
We used DJ Scott Jones for my daughters wedding. It was amazing. He got the crowd involved and played exactly what kept people on the dance floor. I would use him again and again if I had an event
The band was amazing. Everyone was on the dance floor all evening. They were very prompt in setting up. Volume was good, guests were able to carry on a conversation. Tiffany was a great MC. The song selections were right on! Thank you to The Avenue. We would most certainly recommend them for any occasion!
Dance floor never was empty!
Best wedding band ever! Guests never stopped dancing!
We used Cleveland Music Group to provide our DJ, ceremony guitarist, and uplighting for the reception area. I have to say, I have been truly impressed with all aspects of this organization from the first contact through to the last minute of our reception. My contact was extremely helpful with guiding me in choosing a DJ and guitarist, and even the website was a great tool to watch videos of the options. They also worked within our limited budget to provide the lighting which really made the ambiance of the entire venue so breathtaking.
In addition, DJ DC went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having a great time and that Dennis and I got everything we wanted out of our special night. Multiple guests came up to me and told me how awesome the music was! Thank you for everything!
Everything we expected
Scott Jones was professional, helpful and overall excellent to work with throughout the process leading up to and including our wedding reception. He was willing to do anything asked of him and prompted our group at appropriate times when certain portions of the night were coming up so we would be prepared. We let him choose a large portion of the music selections and he didn’t disappoint. He knew how to read the crowd and I would hire him for another event if the opportunity presented itself.
Evelyn Wright brings style and class to any event.
Evelyn and her jazz band provided a wonderful atmosphere to our company event. With style and class she entertained everyone and was such a delight to have to work with. Everyone in attendance loved the music and her singing was outstanding.
We had such an amazing experience with CLE Music Group. Right off the bat Scott Jones was genuinely interested in helping us find exactly what we were looking for!! He helped us choose the perfect DJ, Chris Wallace. Chris was down to earth, fun and very patient with us!! From the meetings we had all the way through to our wedding day I had so much confidence and trust in Chris that he had our night under control. He ensured our grand entrance songs were exactly as requested and that my surprise father daughter dance went off without a hitch! We will definitely recommend CLE Music Group to anyone looking for a wedding DJ!
Cleveland Music Group helped make our day a HUGE success!
Scott Jones and the team at Cleveland Music Group helped in the planning of our wedding day via a DJ for the evening, audio for our ceremony, and a pianist for the cocktail hour.
Scott helped make it a very easy and smooth process, and guided us through every step in our planning.
Our DJs (Big Dave & Wild Wes) were incredible. They had energy, they helped walk us through all of the evenings events, and they were a huge hit with our guests. They knew how to keep the party going, and helped make sure everyone was having a good time.
I would highly recommend anyone to consider the Cleveland Music Group for your event!!
Wonderful, as always!
Our guests loved the band, and they were great to work with! As always, Kim from CMG found us the perfect group for our event. She helped us in the 11th hour looking for a replacement band at the last minute and did so with great success. Both Kim and the band were also accommodating of date/time changes, and we couldn’t be more thankful! The band called ahead to talk over music choices, asking the best way to load, how early we wanted them to arrive, etc. and were very easy going. Highly recommend Cleveland Music Group for any of your entertainment needs!
Absolutely fantastic service
Our DJ (DJ Bill Bowen) did a phenomenal job with the music for our wedding! People would not stop dancing and I got a ton of compliments on how fun the music selection was! DJ Bill was on time, responsive and clear- everything ran so smoothly. He even confirmed if we wanted to do a dollar dance and on the spot we changed our mind, and it was no problem the evening still flowed perfectly! One of our guests suggested a polka and once he saw how many people got up to dance to that (guests I NEVER thought would get on the dance floor), he ended up playing another one later. What a huge hit! I could not recommend CLE Music Group enough. Our entire experience with them was professional and perfect. We could not have had a better night!
Mike and I used DJ Chris Wallace. Chris was on time and on point the entire ceremony, even with last minute changes our wedding day never skipped a beat. Chris listened to our music taste and everyone had a great time.
Everyone thought DJ Chris Wallace was great. There were a couple hiccups at the reception and Chris managed our time and announcements very well and no one even noticed anything had changed. The Photo Booth was a great success. All the guests loved it! People were in it all night long!
Kept Everyone Dancing
We had the pleasure of having DJ Brian McDonald at our wedding reception! He was fantastic! Everyone had a blast and the dance floor was packed all night!
Wonderful company and so accommodating!
Our guests loved this string trio. They played all of our songs beautifully. They were very accommodating and made sure we got to hear all of our special songs.
5 Star Entertainment
Duane Dickson added the Wow factor to our wedding. He is an excellent piper and all the guests were entertained.
TCB exceeded our already high expectations. Many of the guests commented on how great they sounded and that they were the best band they have heard at a wedding. TCB packed the dance floor and kept all guests entertained from the oldest to the youngest. They are truly 5 star entertainment and made our wedding amazing.
A great combo for a fabulous evening
We used John Toula for our ceremony and cocktail hour — he was so lovely to work with, nice, respectful and followed exactly what we asked for song-wise!
For our reception The Sunrise Jones was awesome — we got people up on the dance floor immediately after dinner and it was packed for 3+ hours. Everyone loved them!
TSJ is simply oustanding
The Sunrise Jones were the best part of our wedding reception. Each band member was personable and extremely helpful in organizing our wedding. They were approachable and friendly to all my family members and guests, and were all around class act gentlemen. My guests loved TSJ. I had received so many compliments about their quality, talent, and personalities. They were the highlight of the reception and everyone had a great time.
We had Eric Smith, the Bearded DJ. DJ our wedding reception and he was phenomenal. Every guest was up and dancing the whole night and had a great time. There was never a moment throughout the entire night that people we were not up and having a great time! The music Eric played was spot on and we couldn’t have asked for a better time!
Cleveland Music Group did a phenomenal job at our fundraising event! They provided photo booth services for us and everyone enjoyed it. Casey did a great job from beginning to end by engaging guests to utilize the photo booth.
Sonata Strings did an amazing job at our son’s wedding. The guests said it was the best sound and music they have heard at a wedding. Thanks to Scott for organizing everything. Cleveland Music Group is the best Cleveland can offer for music. We have used them several times.
These guys were amaaaaaaazing.
The Players Club defied all of our expectations and made sure our wedding was perfect. They worked with us on our set list, helped create the vibe we wanted, and listened to every request we had leading up to the wedding. They even worked with one of our singers to perform the processional with her. I was amazing by their professionalism and kindness. We would do this entire thing over again it’s to hire The Players Club. If you’re looking for a band that knows Top 40 you have all the same reservations we did: can they pull it off, will my guests dance, are they dressy enough for my event…. the answer to all of these questions is a resounding YES. Hire them and then pat yourself on the back for doing the right thing.
Strings & DJ
We used Sonata Strings for our ceremony and cocktail hour. The string trio was perfect. They were professional, sounded great and were even able to put together a special request song for me (the bride) to walk down the aisle to. It was a great way to add an elegant touch to the start of our wedding day and the guests were impressed! DJ Chris Wallace came in after cocktail hour and was another hit. He again accommodated our requests for a certain genre of music during dinner and moved smoothly through the unique, traditional Polish touches we had requested during the reception. He kept the party going right up until the end while playing a great blend of genres. Using Cleveland Music Group was a great decision and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking!
Great DJ Match, So Much FUN
When planning the wedding, we wanted a DJ who would play great tunes, read the crowd well, not take over the night, and incorporate our mix of cultures (my husband is from Botswana, Southern Africa). We were not opinionated on which DJ, so we selected the Best Choice DJ package and CLE Music Group matched us up with Judi. Judi was AMAZING. A joy to work with, enthusiastic about mixing music from all over the world, totally got our vibe, had great suggestions when we chatted before the event, and she just so kind and passionate about her job! We were over the moon pleased. She got our guests out onto the dance floor and kept the party going until the last minute. Thank you Judi!
We hired CMG to provide DJ services for our wedding ceremony and reception. DJ Scott Jones was prepared and attentive throughout the entire process and made our day perfect! Thank you for everything!
The Element Band was AMAZING for our wedding. I am so happy that we hired them! Erin (one of the lead singers) was always quick to respond to emails/phone calls when we had questions. They were well prepared for our wedding and a joy to work with. They kept all our guests moving on the dance floor until the very last song of the evening! Multiple guests came up to me to say they wanted to have The Element for their wedding. Thank you again The Element for making our wedding such a wonderful party!
Fabulous-had everyone dancing
The Avenue played from Frank Sinatra to the most up to date – with everything in between – the whole room was dancing during the Hora and during most of their music—fabulous!!
Cleveland Music Group’s Sonata Strings Duo was simple perfection for our ceremony. They provided the calm, classy backdrop to our big day! The booking process was very quick and easy and the team was very accommodating and very nice!
Outstanding, experienced and fun DJs
DJ Mike was absolutely awesome! He had a thorough strategy and his experience showed. He built up the energy, made it exciting and got everyone involved. The dance floor was packed throughout the entire reception. We’d been to other weddings where people were hesitant to participant, but Mike helped everyone feel comfortable out there. We would highly recommend him or this group to anyone looking for a very experienced and fun DJ. We couldn’t have asked for anything more! Thank you!
The Element was 100% amazing in every way. The band absolutely killed it at our wedding. They sounded great, the vocals were SO GOOD, and they kept the energy level high the whole time. People danced until they turned the lights on! Leading up to the event, Erin was awesome to work with. She is accommodating and well-organized and also so friendly and easy-going. We felt like she really listened to our requests and it showed at the wedding as we felt like every detail was thought of. She made great recommendations too and we felt very confident going into the event that it was going to be perfect…and it was!
Danced All Night Long
I would like to thank Tiffany and The Avenue who played at our wedding this past weekend. The band was professional to work with and sounded great! The dance floor was packed all night long!
I cannot thank Scott and everyone involved in our special day enough. Everyone was so easy to work with and answered questions in a very timely matter. Everybody loved the photobooth! The uplighting added that extra special touch to the ballroom and gallery that just topped our whole vision off. Adding the harpist for our ceremony and cocktail hour brought it to a whole different level of class! DJ Eli was AMAZING!!! He kept us up to date on our timeline, kept the music going along with everyone on the dance floor and was just incredible to work with. I would recommend any of these services to any newly engaged couple with no hesitation! Thank you CLE Music Group for making our day unforgettable!
It’s not often that people take the time to write a review for a service someone has provided. And sometimes when you do, it’s more like an obligation. Well, for us it’s a pleasure to say that DJ Arthur and DJ Brent were amazing. Not just the day of our wedding; they bear with us sending them tons of mails with playlists, with our changing everything multiple times. They understood exactly how we wanted things, I have no idea how, because maybe not even we knew. Thanks to the both of you from the bottom of our hearts!
We hired CMG for our wedding in September and were delighted to work with DJ Jeff Kavali. Jeff was so professional and an absolute blast to work with. He was so receptive to our song suggestions and kept up an exciting atmosphere throughout the entire day. We are so happy we decided to book through CMG and highly recommend Jeff to anyone. Thank you for helping make our wedding day so special!
A Wonderful Night
Thank you to the Cleveland Music Group for providing our family with beautiful wedding ceremony music by Anthony Fuoco, uplighting to create that special feeling when walking into the room, and an amazing band for our son and daughter-in-law’s reception.
The Avenue was the perfect band for our event. Their energy kept the dance floor full all night long. Their music crossed generations and created a fun and celebratory atmosphere. In fact, many guests are still complimenting us on our choice of bands. Overall, you helped us to create a wonderful night!
From start to finish Redline brought energy and great music to our wedding reception! Everyone took time to mention how “great the band was!” We danced all night long!
Beautiful addition to the service
The Sonata Strings Quartet added a lovely dimension to my daughter’s wedding. I was able to select musical pieces from a list.
Communication with CLE group was excellent. I tried to communicate with the quartet regarding selection of contemporary pieces but did not hear back from the spokesperson of the quartet until very close to the event. The traditional/classical pieces played were beautiful.
kept the dance floor full of people!
I have seen RadioActive perform several times prior to this event, and I have to say this was BY FAR the best time yet! The singers were perfect, engaging, and interactive and the songs were appropriate. Many of the party goers have asked specifically for their contact info, as they may want to book them in the future.
Michael and the entire TCB band were incredible. They were extremely easy to work with and made our reception a blast. We had seen them at a friends wedding a couple of years ago in Cleveland and hired them as soon as we got engaged and were not disappointed. We would highly recommend using TCB and the Cleveland Music group for your wedding or event!
DJ LONDON BRIDGES IS THE BEST!!
Well, the headline says it all. Hiring Brandon (DJ London Bridges) was one of the best decisions we made. He is not only an incredible DJ who knows how to work a party and pack a dance floor, but he is also an amazing MC who handled his duties with humor, charm and style. Everyone was so impressed. We asked him to “bring the heat” and he delivered!
I won’t give away any of his secrets but I think it is important for brides and grooms to know that Brandon goes above and beyond to create very special, very memorable moments for you. Things that you will remember forever. It’s all in the details and he’s a pro.
Thank you, B! We are so happy that you were part of our day.
Kate + Jack
The best decision you can make, other than getting married.
We booked The Avenue from CLE Music Group for our wedding. Other than getting married, this was perhaps the best decision we made. Everyone from the owner, Scott and all the staff is top notch and very responsive. This was not the case when I looked into other choices for other bands. We felt honored to have what we think is the best and most polished band in Cleveland for our wedding. The play a great set list and know how to keep the floor packed. Their sound engineering is so dialed in, you feel like you’re at house of blues. This doesn’t even begin to mention the talent of the singers and instrumentalists; they are all amazing and true professionals.
I almost majored in music, so music is very important to me and I’m very discerning and picky. I looked at all the options and it was down to the Avenue and another similarly sized band that was slightly less expensive. That other group sounded good at their showcase, but when I researched and spoke to a few of them, I realized they are not really a group. It’s merely an agent of sorts that books these independent musicians for shows. Music is about rapport and anticipation, it frightened me to think our wedding band could have been thrown together with musicians that played together a handful of times or maybe never. With the Avenue (and the entire CLE group) you know what you are getting and can rest easy.
Additionally, as I researched, I found out that there were all sort of upgrades that made the less expensive group slightly more expensive. For example, if you want good sound quality, you need to upgrade your sound package to better speakers. To me this added a lot of additional stress and things to keep track of that add to the list of things you worry about when planning your wedding. Do your research and you only have one option, the Avenue. There are so many things you need to do for your wedding, this was one thing where we were able to fully remove this stress from the planning knowing the band would deliver and did they. We had the unfortunate event of a guest having a stroke at the reception (they are ok). But the Avenue was so professional and when they came on were able to turn the mood around and ensure everyone had fun for the rest of the evening. Everyone was raving about how fantastic the band was and they’ve never heard anything like it at a wedding. Thank you so much guys, you made our reception!
Best wedding band EVER!
I had the pleasure of having The Element perform at our wedding reception. I cannot put into words how talented they all are and how easy it was to work with Erin. They made it very special by surprising me with learning a couple of songs that were especially meaningful to me! I also received a number of compliments from our guests that night on how great they were and even days afterwards. They had everyone on the dance floor until the end of the night! I would without a doubt recommend them to anyone for their wedding, or any other event for that matter. They were truly wonderful.
Couldn’t be happier!
We had an absolute blast and we’re so grateful to DJ Bill Bowen and Cleveland Music Group. He read the room perfectly and played a great setlist – the dance floor was packed the entire time! He made it all about us and was happy to help with whatever we wanted. Thank you thank you thank you!
We received numerous compliments from our guests as to how great the jazz quintet was for our cocktail hour. They really set the tone for the evening and got the guests into the event. The group consulted with us on our tastes and preferences and pulled together a truly unique group and set list that met all of our hopes!
The Sunrise Jones really lit up the room!
The Sunrise Jones did an amazing job playing for our wedding in August. We have gotten tons of feedback from our guests at how much they loved the band.
They were easy to work with before hand, professional and kept the dance floor rocking all night on our big day. We couldn’t be more happy with TSJ MC’ing and providing the music for our wedding!!
Our string trio left us speechless. I even had my choir director comment on how professional and talented they were. I was worried at first, but Tanis and crew made lovely music.
I definitely recommend Mike Gazdak as DJ. We gave him a small amount of information and music selection to work from and he made sure that our dance floor was never empty. A great time was had by all!
Although my new husband and I weren’t at the cocktail hour at our wedding reception, we have heard several positive comments about Jonathan Hooper’s music. It was a great additional to our very romantic, elegant wedding and we are very thankful for him and for Cleveland Music Group!
Non stop energy
Fabulous musical selections. Everyone was on the dance floor – the dance floor filled all evening!
Great fun with karaoke
Our DJ London Bridges was terrific! He was lots of fun and encouraged everyone to karaoke. Many of the guests participated — some several times — and the rest watched and sang along! Lots of laughing, clapping and dancing too. The party was still going on after the “last call!”
Sunrise Jones Absolutley Amazing Band
First I would like to say what a joy it was to work with Cleveland Music Group. From the first phone call to the last it was a wonderful process. I worked with Tony Howard and he helped me choose the band based on my budget. He would always call me back or have a staff member call me back whenever I had a question. The payment process was easy and the contracts were easy to read and detailed. There was nothing hidden.
Now to the band. I cannot tell you enough about Sunrise Jones. My daughter communicated with the band more than I did on song selection and reception details that day. She always had positive things to say about the e-mail conversations over the year. At the wedding reception I must have had 100 guests say to me the band was amazing. The dance floor was packed all night. No one wanted the wedding to end at midnight. Our sales contact at Bon Appetit (the caterer at the venue) called me a couple days later and asked where I got the band. She said she hears a lot of bands and Sunrise Jones was going on her list of bands to recommend. She said not only was the music excellent but they were very professional and nice. I know it will be a wedding to remember because of this band! Thank You Sunrise Jones!
SO MUCH FUN!!!
The Sunrise Jones was a fabulous group to work with. They communicated with us prior to the reception to get a feel for what we wanted. We had some last minutes requests (microphones for the ceremony) and they were so accommodating sharing their equipment. The band welcomed the bride as a guest singer…really got the party started! We were so sad when the evening ended. People didn’t want to leave the dance floor and chanted, “one more song” until they did. Thanks guys, we couldn’t have asked for a better band.
Best Experience Ever
We could not recommend CMG and We Are the Radio with more enthusiasm. We had originally booked with another entertainment company, but after we pointed out to them that they had double booked us, we were back to the drawing board to find a band for our wedding. Within 24 hours of us catching the mistake, we were all set with CMG. They took our needs and wants under close consideration and we were fatefully matched with WATR. We could not have had a better night – from our first dance, which WATR specially arranged just for us, to the party they kept going all night, it was the best night of our lives in huge part to them. All the songs we requested were played, and people came up to us all night with rave reviews. There were more people left on the dance floor at the end of the night than I’ve ever seen at the end of any wedding. Our goal was to throw the most fun dance party every thrown, and the goal was not only achieved, but exceeded. We could not thank you enough!
Awesome Wedding Band!!!
The AVENUE led by Tiffany performed at our Wedding in Rocky River on 8/13/16. They were a huge hit!!! Tiffany and crew rocked the party all the way till midnight. They were able to keep the group of 230 entertained, which was impressive given the age range of 18-85. Guests are still asking who the band was and how great they were…the venue even commented on how great the band and dance floor flowed all night.
Song list: they can play everything from Frank Sinatra, classic Motown and even keep it current with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, etc…
The band is very professional and managed the evening masterfully! Thank you so much for a memorable evening.
Only room for improvement would be learning a few extra songs not on their list by request.
We will send pictures once we have some. I am sure there will be some amazing pictures.
We absolutely loved Bill Bowen as a DJ for our wedding on Saturday. He was very flexible and willing to come up with a great night of music and dancing for all attending our wedding. We would recommend him to anything looking for a great DJ. Thank you, Bill!!!
Doesn’t Get Any Better Than The Element
My fiance and I knew we wanted a band and not a DJ for our wedding. From the moment we heard The Element perform at a friend’s wedding we knew there would be no better band that was as engaging, animated and musically talented as The Element. Erin Rossi was beyond helpful with planning our song selections. She made me and my fiance feel so relaxed and comfortable. I knew the band would be wonderful and that I wouldn’t have to worry about them.
I was right. The day of the wedding they were extremely professional and accommodating to add in our flower girls and ring bearer into the bridal party announcements. Erin had been in constant communication with me for the days leading up to the wedding to make sure she had the correct pronunciation of each bridal party member. She did a beautiful job as the MC and kept our guests dancing all night. We are so very happy with our choice and hope that you consider The Element when you’re exploring bands!!!
DJ Eric was wonderful to work with. He sent us a detailed survey to fill out ahead of our wedding to make sure he had all the information he needed about our music preferences throughout the wedding, and all the details he needed to MC the reception. He also took the time to meet with us to make sure we were all on the same page and to double check last-minute details. Eric played music that WE loved throughout the cocktail hour and dinner, and played a great mix of music that EVERYONE loved during the party. Because we had a Sunday night wedding, we were a little worried that the party would break up early, but Eric made sure the dance floor was going til the very end!
Best Band Ever!
The Orchestra really knows how to put on a show! They started fast and kept the energy all night! The set list kept our guests on the dance floor nonstop, and at the end of the night some of our guests were chanting for an encore! Thank you to Sam and Dwayne for getting the party started with a great acoustic set during cocktail hour, and thank you to the entire Orchestra for making our wedding such a memorable celebration!
Talent was easy to communicate with prior to event. He was on time, flexible and went above and beyond. Everyone loved him. Erin Rossi internally at CLE Music Group was also OUTSTANDING. Erin is friendly, detail oriented, responded quickly and very helpful. She is an all-star.
Rocking good time
The youth said the party and DJ Brent were awesome. Very hip, appropriate and cool. Your company is very organized. We felt secure with our contract and service the whole way through. We will use you again and again.
Valley View’s Headliner of Year
The Geez Cats Played for our residents in a beautiful pavilion in our Valley View Woods Park and even though we had the threat of rain they made everyone’s night with their fantastic tributes to the oldies but goodies. We were so blown away by how they sounded so much like the original artist them shelves. We can’t wait to have them back again next year!
wedding on 8/12/16
The music was great, The Orchestra performed for 4 hours with 3 breaks. The breaks were each about 10 minutes. They played all kinds of different music. They went out into the dance floor to perform and they actually seemed to be enjoying themselves.
We were very impressed by the performance of The Avenue at our son’s wedding last weekend. They played every song we wanted and played them all very well. They are truly a great band and great performers. All of our guests were still talking about the band the next day. Everyone loved the band. Tiffany was amazing. She really put on a good show. I cannot thank her enough. If you want a great party band, hire The Avenue. You will not be disappointed.
The band was absolutely phenomenal. The dance floor was packed all evening. We had so many comments from our guests saying just how great they were, and some specifically saying The Sensations were the best live band they have ever seen at a wedding. We knew they were going to be good, having seen them perform before we booked them, but they were way better than good! Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so special. Could not be more highly recommended.
Beautiful music. Sonata Strings provided a wonderful backdrop to our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour.
Professional and Perfect
The Sonata Strings were the perfect addition to our church music. They really set the tone for an elegant wedding. They knew all of the music that we requested and made great suggestions. The trio was extremely professional and worked well with the church cantors and pianist/organist. We were very impressed and our guests raved about the music part of the ceremony. I strongly suggest adding the Sonata Strings to your wedding event. They were truly a phenomenal addition!
Hit of the party!
Dennis did a great job on accordion! He worked with me to time things perfectly, and his performance was exactly what we were looking for! He did several songs in Italian, which made the old timers at the party so happy! Everyone loved having him there.
Shady Drive was an awesome band!
Our guests had such a fun time enjoying live tunes from Shady Drive on our patio. It was a blast and everyone was on the dance floor! Thank you to CLE Music Group for setting everything up and making it so easy!
This is the 5th family wedding that we have used The Orchestra. They do a great job & are very professional. To quote an older quest at recent wedding, “this is the best wedding band I have ever heard.” Everyone dances when they play!
DJ Jeff Kavali was wonderful. He kept my mother out on the dance floor all night. We all had a great time. My parents loved the party.
Our pianist Jonathan Hooper was very professional and easy to work with. Beautiful music!
I’ve been in the event catering/Banquet/wedding business for over 25 years. By its very nature, planning a wedding/large event can become daunting at times, knowing where to start, and trusting your vendors will get the job done etc. can prove overwhelming. Simply put: The folks over at Cleveland Music Group have something special. Their enthusiastic professionalism, and general willingness to exceed expectations has become a rare commodity in what some refer to as a “burn and turn” industry. Our paths inadvertently crossed this year, and I was blown away by not only their eagerness to please, but their passion for the industry. Tony and Thor were amazing to work with!
DJ Smoov – A Master of His Craft
DJ Smoov was hands down one of the best additions to our wedding day! When we first set out in search for a DJ, we wanted someone who would let the music do the work – DJ Smoov delivered on that promise, and then some! He was concise on the mic and masterful on the table. We never in a million years would have expected guests of all age ranges to come up to us during our wedding and comment on how great our DJ was, but that is exactly what happened. He listened to the style of music we wanted to play, then used his expertise to set the tone for the night.
For an unbiased perspective, our wedding videographer is from Dayton and travels all around the world doing weddings, he made a point to come up to us during the wedding and tell us how hard DJ Smoov was working up there mixing live – And how he had never seen a wedding DJ mix the way Smoov was non-stop all night long. He loved him! That’s saying something! Oh – And he made a SWEET video after the wedding and posted it on social media. Just another reason why Smoov is the best! Thanks again for everything you did to make our night amazing!
These guys don’t need any additional positive reviews, as I’m pretty sure they are already booked every weekend through 2019. Yes, they are that freaking good. However, I feel compelled to tell our experience with Tricky Dick & The Cover Ups. Not only do these guys completely rock it out on the stage, but they are as classy and professional as they are rockers. From the very first communication with these guys, I was nothing short of impressed with the responsiveness and guidance they provided me and my wife throughout the wedding planning process. I mean, these guys have a range that is completely unheard of. Not every day do you get to see a band that can play Boogie Shoes all the way to Shut Up and Dance. I had people high-fiving me at my wedding saying they have never had so much fun dancing and singing along at a reception. To take it a step further, Tony Howard is an absolute phenomenal MC and basically ran our entire wedding post ceremony. Oh and by the way, we were married in a vineyard and had no idea how to get sound for our officiant. At the last minute Tony figured it out for us and the ceremony went on without a hitch. Overall, these guys are just awesome and the music was fantastic. If you want your wedding to be remembered forever, you should probably hire these guys. Thank you guys again for making our wedding day so special.
DJ Gaz made us feel so at ease in planning our wedding reception. He was easy to work with and we would hire him again in a heart beat. Our guests had the best time ever and loved his music choices. We couldn’t be happier!
Great DJ service
Great service. I appreciate the time DJ Mike Alexander spent preparing for our event. Guests were very happy with the music!
A Great DJ Duo!
From the moment we met with Dave and Wes before the wedding, we knew they were going to be the perfect DJs for our wedding! They were so easy to work with, kept people on the dance floor, added humor to the day, and the lighting they used made the room so beautiful! Our guests had only great things to say!
The Orchestra made our night perfect!
The Orchestra played for our daughter’s wedding this past weekend. We have never had so much fun at any other wedding! This elite group of musicians kept our guests on the dance floor the entire night! It was magical! Friends and family have been calling me over the last two days telling me that they have never heard a better band! The Orchestra is beyond exceptional and a class act! Thank you so much for a most wonderful evening!
Fantastic wedding DJ
We had fantastic service for our wedding! Our DJ (Dan Cormier) was wonderful. Service was personalized and accommodating. We couldn’t be happier for choosing DJ DC!!
I highly recommend D.J. Billy King, what a nice guy to deal with and he made our wedding reception an awesome party!
The Element was AMAZING and made our wedding!!
The Element was AMAZING!! They MADE our wedding and had everyone, from young to old, up and dancing. Not only did they perform beautifully for our ceremony and cocktail hour but they also rocked it out at the reception! Everyone, including us, were raving about their songs, singing, and the upbeat vibe they kept going all night. Their musical talents and singing abilities are on point and SO impressive. If you’re looking to make your wedding night or event truly special, then this is the band to get! Thanks again!!
DJ Jeff Kavali Was Awesome
DJ Jeff was absolutely fantastic! He was extremely laid back, but at the same time on top of everything. He made sure we were relaxed and comfortable, and took care of any “behind the scenes” stuff we either hadn’t thought of, or didn’t know who to have do it. In addition, we had so many positive comments from our wedding guests both during and after, and we loved the music too! He seemed to really be able to tell what people were into and what would work for our group.
Made our 4th of July Family Reunion and Graduation Party a total BLAST!
We have the highest praise for our DJ “Judi,” she really made the day so very special and fun for all who attended. Thank you for getting Judi for our event and we will have her again, as she is a Rock Star!
Wonderful God given talent!
We are so grateful for your wonderful God given talent, The Element is just great, the song was beautiful. I felt like a shortstop at an action packed game because I was fielding so many questions about you and the band. Our neighbors want to hire you for the street party, my friends asked me to get you booked for a party. I just want you to know we thank you and appreciate you and although since I only had three daughters there better be no more weddings for them. I wish you all the best, if it was the 70s I would take you touring. At another wedding or event we will hope to meet up again with you.
Had a great time!
DJ Brent was awesome to work with, very friendly and knew just what kind of music we liked with the small amount of information we provided to him. The dance floor was full all night and everyone has been talking about how much fun our wedding was and I think that is all due to Brent doing his job well. Thank you for the great reception!!
DJ Brent Rocked It!
DJ Brent was awesome for our wedding! Very fun to work with. Had a very large selection of music and had a lot of great ideas for song selections. Thank you so much!
Steel Drums are a Must Have for your Event!
I was in charge of booking seven performance/entertainment acts for a corporate event that would be hosting a thousand people. Every act was wonderful, but the steel drums were so unique and different they had every guest stopping and watching them perform. Several guests asked for business cards for Wilber and Erynn after the event and we gladly shared that information. Not only were they talented, but they were the most genuinely sweet and sincere people that I have met in a very long time. They were so easy going and wonderful to work with, I’m trying to find an excuse to have a party so I can have them perform.
We absolutely loved having The Orchestra at our wedding! From start to finish they were nothing but a class act! Our dance floor was packed the entire time and everyone can not stop talking about how amazing the band was! We highly recommend anyone looking for a wedding band to book The Orchestra! We are couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
Best Music and Wonderful Lighting
DJ Brian McDonald is awesome. The guests raved about the music. They liked the continuous playing of music, no gaps at all. The coral uplighting that Scott chose for us was on point. It completed the look we were striving for. I would have never thought the lighting would make this much of a difference. I have never seen so many guests dance all night.
Phenomenal service with a smile!
We had the pleasure of working with Judi Chevrolet for Best Choice DJ services at our recent wedding. We both found working with Judy incredibly easy. Judi worked with us on our timeframe, kept things very laid back, accommodated our last minute requests, greeted guests warmly, engaged the group and met all of our expectations. I would highly recommend her services.
DJ Brent was the best DJ of all time! He gave us the party of a lifetime.
Our reception party is still being talked about as “THE best party of the year,” all in credit to the talent of DJ Brent from Cleveland Music Group. From day one the professionalism DJ Brent took with helping bring life to our vision to his expertise in choosing the perfect array of songs to keep our dance floor packed all night long, he did an amazing job start to finish. We had guests on the dance floor who haven’t danced in YEARS!!! The bars closed down and at the end of the night there were still 100 people plus left on the dance floor calling for encores! We are beyond grateful for DJ Brent and the once in a lifetime reception he provided for us and for the joy he brought to our guests. Seeing a packed dance floor and the smiles on our families and friends faces was the best wedding gift we could have ever received. Many of our guests are already asking for DJ Brent’s contact information to book him for their upcoming events and we never hesitate to forward a positive recommendation on. Thank you DJ Brent for giving us the best party we’ve ever been to!!
Ginni was our daughter’s wedding ceremony harpist. She was so professional and kind. Her music selections stunned our guests with her playing talents. Everyone was more than impressed and totally made our daughter’s wedding one of class. We will always remember Ginni’s class act!!
Incredibly talented band
The Orchestra killed it at our wedding!
The Orchestra was the best! Our guests were on their feet dancing before dinner was even over! Dwayne was super easy to work with and very responsive in emails and calls during the planning process. His advice was always spot on. The band kept everyone on their feet all night and we received so many compliments and inquiries on who the band was for future events. They interacted with the crowd and really kept everyone going. Could not have asked for anything more!
DJ Brian McDonald was great. He played excellent music throughout the night and went above his duties as a DJ to make us feel comfortable. Would definitely hire again.
Dennis was a huge success with his friendly and professional interaction
Dennis was hailed by all 100 guests at my sister’s 8th birthday party as a nice guy, an excellent accordionist and performer and a consummate professional. Most of our guests had never experienced the ambiance of an Italian accordionist and soloist and were fixed on his performance for his entire engagement. Not only was his performance of the perfect songs for this occasion, but the authentic emotional impact of his entertainment touched our guests with smiles, tears and hearty applause. Dennis is a treasure for all lovers of Italian music at its best. Thanks Dennis!
Wedding Reception – Wooooo
Guests of all ages had a blast. DJ Scott E. Jones made introductions a lot of fun and did a great job keeping the dance floor packed!
The Best Band Ever
Our guests never sat down when The Orchestra was playing. Everyone said how amazing they all are.
DJ Matt Gazdak gets us moving and grooving. He is a crowd pleaser!!
I have had the pleasure of having Matt as our DJ for more that one event, and each time he has surprised me with how much fun we have. He has a great verity of music. Our guest had a wonderful time dancing to his music. We have two events each year and I will request him on the next one also. Thank you Cleveland Music Group and Matt Gazdak!
Had a blast!
We had a blast dancing to The Orchestra‘s music at our wedding reception! The band really made our party fun and everyone danced the night away. Working with Dwayne to plan everything was easy and low stress. He was flexible and responsive to our requests. Best wedding band in Cleveland for sure.
Great Sound – Great Music
The Orchestra performed at our daughter’s wedding recently. They were exceptional. They played very “danceable” music and had our guests on the dance floor most of the night. We were very happy with our choice of The Orchestra for the wedding.
A winter wedding
We hired The Element to play at our daughters wedding reception. Right from the beginning we felt very comfortable working with Erin. Picking the right entertainment is by far the most important aspect in producing a fun evening of celebration. The band was absolutely the best. The variety of songs played were perfect. The dance floor was packed all night long. Thank you to the band The Element for accommodating our choice in music and helping make the evening a night to remember!
Beyond Fantastic – still getting compliments
We could not be more blown away by the talent that The Orchestra brought to our wedding. From the moment they started, our guests were asking where we found this incredible band, and they were asking for referrals for their own events. Even 5 days later, our guests are still raving about The Orchestra. They absolutely exceeded our expectations. The band leader, Dwayne, was incredibly accommodating and an absolute pleasure to work with. He was accessible to me in the weeks leading up to the event so that we could plan every detail, and he made every single request of ours a reality. The band was even gracious enough to accommodate a slight change in timing that we requested at the end of the night. Thank you so much to Dwayne, Scott, and The Orchestra for being the highlight of the night!
What an awesome band!! Organized, extremely flexible and easy to work with, and very professional. We have had so many compliments from our wedding guests on how great the band was! The band kept everyone on the dance floor the entire evening, and they were simply phenomenal! Above and beyond our expectations, and we would recommend them over and over again!! Thanks CLE music Group and The Avenue Band!
The Bottom Line is AMAZING!
We hired technology for our wedding ceremony (sound system, etc) and our wedding band (The Bottom Line) through CLE Music Group and couldn’t have been happier. Scott Jones was a pleasure to work with–always quick to respond and able to explain the best ways to handle our situation. The Bottom Line was AMAZING and we can’t imagine our wedding without them. The dance floor was full the ENTIRE night. They sounded wonderful–our emcee Stan was delightful and really got the crowd going. They were super willing to play our music during their breaks and really paid attention to the songs that we asked them to play. All of our interactions with them were stellar and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you to the Bottom Line; we continue to get compliments!
A Night to Remember!
Wow. My wedding reception went off without a hitch thanks to the emcee of the night, DJ Mike Alexander. He was professional, timely and really cared that our night went the way we planned it. I would use Mike and the CLE Music Group again in a heartbeat and would easily recommend them to a friend.
The Avenue was amazing
Dear future Mr and Mrs, Sarah and I would like to take a moment to rave about how wonderful The Avenue was. We both know the level of anxiety that surrounds selecting the perfect band. Rest assured, THIS IS THE BAND FOR YOU! I will digress for one moment to share how nervous Sarah was that our dance floor would be empty. She wasn’t sure if people would be up and dancing. The ONLY time that people sat was during the sit-down meals. Our party ended at 1 am and had The Avenue continued to play music, our dance floor would have continued to dance. Our guests kept shouting for one more song and after that one ended they wanted another. Every single person from young to old told us how impressed they were and how amazing the band was. Good luck to you and early congratulations from the November 21st, 2015 Bride and Groom Sarah and Jason Pillet
Kept people on the dance floor all night!
From the introductions to the final song, DJ Smoov was on point! He kept the party going all night long. Great sense of what the crowd wanted and a true professional. I would tell anybody looking for a DJ, for any event, give DJ Smoov a call.
Beautiful music selection. Ginny was timely and very responsive to our needs. Erin was amazing at setting everything up.
Judi was a terrific addition to our event
Judi of Backstreet DJs was the perfect choice for our holiday party. I had many people ask how we found her, so kudos to The Cleveland Music Group website. We would definitely use Judi again and I would love to have the budget to have the Backstreet Trio. Our group crossed an age group of 25-75 and Judi was able to actively engage the entire group. She announced our activities and speakers and drew numbers for our door prizes. Very professional, a smooth as silk voice . . . We had a fun and entertaining evening and Judi was a big part of making it all come together. Thank You again, Judi!
A perfect evening & a packed dance floor
Our wedding was an absolutely blast, and DJ DC was a HUGE part of that! He kept everyone out on the dance floor until midnight and played a great mix of music genres that appealed to all our guests, no matter their age. His MC skills helped the night run smooth. My husband and I were confident after meeting with him that he was our guy. He was always responsive to questions and accommodated all our requests – before and during the wedding. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.
Great talent, energy and enthusiasm!
We received countless comments from our guests about the talent and quality of the band (The Avenue). They brought tremendous energy and enthusiasm to our wedding, bringing everyone out onto the dance floor, even those who normally don’t dance. Our 750 square foot dance floor was packed to capacity all night long and at 1AM for the last song. The band leader did a fantastic job with all of the planning and details and did a masterful job acting as MC.
DJ DC Rocks!
This company was by far one of the most PROFESSIONAL to work with of all the vendors we hired for our special day. From beginning to end, we truly felt like we were in good hands not only picking Cleveland Music Group, but specifically DJ DC (aka Dan Cormier). We were VERY picky about the DJ for our event. We had been to weddings where, let’s just say you realize how important the DJ is at the end of the day.
Since we were planning our wedding from across the country, it was a challenge to find the right fit for us. We just didn’t have the time or luxury of interviewing countless DJs before our wedding day. We really appreciated that Cleveland Music Group is hip with the times—showcasing each DJ they have to offer with personalized individual webpages, complete with a highlight video for each DJ to give you an idea of their personality, style, and approach. EXTREMELY helpful. Did not find this sort of info on other DJ sites.
As soon as we met Dan in person, we were sold. His outstanding voice, laid back personality, and can-do attitude instantly put us at ease. He understood our needs without much explanation at all. He was the first DJ we met with, and we booked him immediately! The day of our wedding was amazing. He accommodated all of our requests—much more work on his end—and was easily able to adapt to any last minute changes during the course of the evening. He kept us up to speed on where the night was headed—knew exactly what to anticipate when—and adjusted things accordingly. He clearly knew what he was doing and always kept things professional. We got sooo many compliments from friends and family how great the music was. The dance floor was packed all night long. Can’t imagine our reception without DJ DC! Thank you!!
The Michelle Romary Trio was everything we expected, and more. Arrived early, performed impeccably without a break. Sang current and topical material and engaged with the audience. Michelle’s personality oozed out and she was the hit of the evening. We were delighted with her performance.
Gene Natale as wedding DJ
Gene Natale was the wedding DJ for our son’s wedding. We found that it was extremely easy to communicate with him during preparation stages. We also found that all our special requests were fully completed. We and our son and daughter-in-law were completely satisfied with the entertainment that Gene gave us. We will recommend him anywhere a friend or relative will need a DJ.
Exceeded Our Expectations!
The TCB band was great! Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music, vocals, and playlist. The band was professional and stayed with our timeline for the evening. I highly recommend TCB! The lighting was professional and added to the atmosphere of the evening.
Our Wedding Music
Nate Jones and his backup singer Michelle played the most beautiful music at our wedding ceremony and reception! They added the perfect touch to the wedding and I haven’t stopped hearing compliments since! From Beatles to Calvin Harris, old, new, fast, and slow. They did it all (better than originals!) We loved the instrumental and vocals more than we could ever explain.
Two Grand Slams!
The guitar music by John Toula for the small outdoor wedding was beautiful and lent a nice quaint mood instead of recorded music. And then the Matt Horwich jazz trio under the reception tent was like we were treating our guests to a private concert!!
The Pianist and the band, Rick & the Cutting Edge, really made our wedding special. The guests loved the live music and all of the songs. The dance floor was packed the whole night. Rick was very easy to work with and did a great job with announcing the wedding party.
Guests at the wedding loved the band. Mike was easy to work with and very helpful. TCB was referred to me by a friend, I am very grateful!!!
Best wedding of the year
DJ Bill Bowen did an awesome job of music selection and engaged our guests to keep them dancing all night long. Bill also did a great job of keeping us on task, which lead to a perfect evening.
Everything was fantastic! DJ Brent did a great job and played all the right music to get us and the guests dancing. We all had a great time.
Professional Service, Very Happy!
Working with CLE Music Group was first class from start to finish. We had an onsite meeting to start to learn about their offerings and it was great to work with a group that had so many options to fit our needs. We selected DJ DC as our DJ at the wedding and couldn’t be happier. He made sure all our guests were happy and filling the dance floor. I was also impressed how professional he was prior to the wedding via emails and phone conversations. He was insistent on making everything perfect – and it was! Mission accomplished!
This company is wonderful to work with. From finding the right DJ to the event, working with DJ Tom was an easy deal. The reception went smoothly, the music was what we asked for, the volume perfect. DJ Tom works his magic to give you the best event possible!
DJ Matt Was Great
DJ Gaz was great. He took requests and kept our group dancing. Great job.
We loved having Eric Smith DJ our wedding at the Cleveland Arcade! Eric was fantastic to work with – collaborative, responsive and prepared. We had so many guests compliment the music selection, and the dance floor was still packed for the last song. Thanks so much to Eric for helping to make our wedding so personal and memorable.
Bill Kurtycz was an absolutely phenomenal DJ! He was very polite and professional and had the dance floor packed for the entire reception. The music selection was perfect and several guests commented that it was the best music they had ever experienced at a wedding. Thank you so much for making our special day even better! I didn’t have to worry about the music at all.
DJ Gaz is 5 star
Fantastic experience with Matt (DJ Gaz). I appreciated his sharing his insight and experience on reception flow of events. You can tell he has a lot of experience. He is extremely personable and he kept the dance floor packed in between band breaks. He is a consummate professional and a terrific DJ.
Best Part of the Night!
Simply outstanding! The Orchestra blew us away at our wedding. We received so many compliments from all of our guests on how AMAZING the band was, and they truly were! The variety of songs played was perfect, and each band member was on point…especially the emcee and the lead singers. I’m pretty sure that Louis Armstrong himself returned for the night! Working with CLE Music Group (f/k/a Jerry Bruno Productions) was a breeze as well, from the initial contact all the way until the night of. We cannot say enough great things about the whole organization, but The Orchestra absolutely made the night!
Talent, Energy and Professionalism…the Trifecta!
Once the music started, everyone hit the dance floor and never stopped. The guests responded so well to The Element, the energy was palpable. I have to admit that even though I had heard the demos and thought the talent was there, I wasn’t sure if the group would be a big enough sound to carry the tent. But they are such sensational musicians and singers, they do have a “big” sound and “pulled” the crowd onto the floor…young and old alike. They were courteous and even let one of our guests onto the stage to sing a couple of songs…and they harmonized with him! I was thrilled and the bride and groom were too. The Element was a key ingredient to making it such a joyous occasion.
DJ Scott Jones made our wedding perfect! He helped make the entire evening flow perfectly and helped create an unforgettable evening for us! We cannot recommend him and the entire Cleveland Music Group enough!
Fun and classy entertainment!
DJ Bill Bowen did an excellent job of fulfilling our plan we made with him in advance plus taking all the changes and additions that came the night of the event in stride! He played everything we wanted to hear plus much more. He kept everyone on the dance floor, which is all we wanted. Highly recommend.
Packed Dance Floor -Wedding
DJ Dave Eubanks and the uplights were amazing. The DJ kept the dance floor busy all night and we had to extend the night to keep up! We had an amazing wedding day because he was energetic and so pleasant to our guests. Great Job!!!
We hired the RayBans for our wedding and there is only one word to describe the band as well as the customer service from Scott at CLE Music Group: Amazing. Craig from The RayBans was so easy to deal with, made us feel as if this was the only wedding he did all year and was an absolute professional. To be honest, we were nervous, they weren’t one of the higher price tags on the site and they didn’t have a ton of gigs that we could go see. We did not get to see them prior to our wedding due to timing but Scott from CLE Music group put his name on the line for them and I am glad he did. The 5 piece we got was amazing, beautiful voices, and throughout the night I had to convince myself that they were a band and not just playing the music via iPod. I recommend the 5 piece highly, they truly were…amazing.
I had a great experience with Erin Rossi. When my band canceled, she helped me to find a band so quickly as well as a ceremony/cocktail hour option. She worked after her hours and stopped everything to help me. Being in the industry, that is the customer service people look for. Although we didn’t use the full band option, we did use the cocktail hour and the music was perfect. They were great! Thanks to Erin and Scott.
Great Wedding DJ at a great Price!
Bill was great – incredibly professional, got everything set up when he needed, and provided exactly what we asked for both during the ceremony and the reception. We couldn’t have been happier with the level of service and the value for the price. We definitely recommend CLE Music Group (and specifically DJ Bill Bowen) for your wedding or event!
Professional and Accomodating
Nothing but good things I can say about the Esto Jazz band. They were very professional and accommodating to the proper noise level for our fundraiser. Very nice to work with and they played great music! We would definitely hire them again.
Jonathan was wonderful!
Jonathan (jazz piano) was perfect for my grandmother’s birthday party. He was easy to work with, and played the songs my grandmother requested. Everyone at the party had a great time and loved the music. I would definitely recommend Jonathan!
We had Scott Jones DJ our special day and couldn’t have been happier! They kept the crowd going until the very last song and kept my husband and I on track through our itinerary! Couldn’t have been happier!!!
We booked ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music through Cleveland Music Group and every part of our day was fantastic! The Sonata Strings were a beautiful touch to our ceremony and even looked into a special song for us. Jeff Sherman on guitar was a hit at cocktail hour prompting a lot of compliments from guests. Lastly, DJ Eric Smith kept the dance floor going all night with so many fun songs. Everyone we worked with to coordinate at Cleveland Music Group was so helpful and friendly. We are glad we selected them for our wedding!
Our budget for music was tight, but Cleveland Music Group was able to work with us to book the Dave Sterner Duo. They were absolutely perfect for our casual brunch reception. The musicians were kind and professional and I cannot compliment their talents enough. The music really set the atmosphere and our guests really enjoyed them too!
Outstanding Work and Support
DJ Art was outstanding. He took all of our requests and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. When all of our selections were made, Art did a great job of filling the reception with a wide variety of music that created the atmosphere we were looking for. A good variety of artists and even genres, all while maintaining a great flow. People were on the floor all night. Art worked closely with the venue staff, officiant, photographer, videographer and of course the bride and myself to make sure that everything went off perfectly. I would, and have, recommended him to anyone looking for a great DJ.
Phil Turk was AWESOME!!!
We booked Phil Turk to sing during our cocktail and dinner hours. He did an outstanding job. The guest loved him and thought that his voice was amazing! He added such a great touch to our reception. We highly recommend him! He does not disappoint.
DJ DC could not have been any better. He was the highlight of our wedding. My guests raved, we loved our music, he was phenomenal. I will recommend him for as long as he’s DJing! Great personality, so easy to work with! Forever grateful.
Fantastic…was worth every penny!!!!!
I am so pleased that I hired DJs. Judi and Rick were talented professionals who made the difference. Even though very reasonably priced, people came up to me to compliment me “putting money” into the music. The music made a difference. My 83 year old aunt even danced with all of us. What more can I say?? I wish I could have the evening repeated again and again. Judi and Rick played the music I requested and then they added to the play list to make the evening fun.
Dj Brent was fantastic!
DJ Brent Schmidt was the DJ at our wedding. My husband and I got so many compliments about how fun the music was and how professional he was throughout the night. He kept all our guests on the dance floor and kept the whole process running smoothly. We’re so happy that we went with the Cleveland Music Group! Everyone we dealt with was helpful and professional! I would recommend DJ Brent to any bride looking for a fun, professional DJ who helps make your special day so great!
A wedding to be remembered!
DJ DC did a wonderful job with our wedding reception. He listened carefully to our preferences and was very accommodating with all of our requests. He used his knowledge and flare to keep the party going all night long. We had so many guests on the dance floor – including family members we have never seen dance at a wedding before! It was a party to remember!!
This was the most amazing night of our lives. Throughout the wedding planning process we knew there were a couple of very important things we needed to focus on. The entertainment being one of the top on our list. We reached out to Cleveland Music Group just looking to get a price and it turned out to be the best/easiest decision we ever made. We chose Tommy D as our DJ. When we met with him we was very patient and listened to everything we wanted and did not want for our big day. The entire night we received so many compliments on how great the music was and the dance floor was packed all night! We cant thank him enough for making our big day so special!
wedding uplighting on short notice
I contacted your company shortly before my wedding reception to request information about uplighting. I was in a bit of a panic as I knew from early on that I wanted uplighting for my wedding reception but was not proactive in securing a vendor as my DJ (which I did secure early) provided uplighting also. Shortly before the wedding, and after my walk through at the venue with my DJ, I learned what the DJ’s pricing was for uplighting services. I was not so pleasantly surprised at the DJs pricing for uplighting or the push to sell me 3 times the lights I needed and decided to try and find a more reasonable vendor. I contacted Cleveland Music Group on short notice and was extremely pleased with the services. I received an email response back promptly after my request for information, and the price was much more reasonable. The uplighting was perfect!!! I absolutely love the ambiance it created and the effect it provided in pictures. Thank you for providing such great service on short notice and at a reasonable price. I would recommend your company highly.
I could not be happier that we chose to go with The Element for our live band. They did such an excellent job! I can’t even count how many of my guests said that our reception was the funnest they had ever been to and it was all thanks to The Element! They were even accommodating of some of our rowdier guests and allowed them to join them up on stage. They truly made it the best night ever!
Perfect Ceremony and Reception
We wouldn’t have changed a single note for our wedding day music. DJ Matt Gazdak was friendly and easy to work with. He was happy to play some of our quirkier song selections for our wedding ceremony. Everyone enjoyed his selections for cocktail hour. And the reception was such a blast! The dance floor never was less than half full the entire night, mostly it was packed. Guests told us they wished they had the nights music as a playlist to take home.
DJ Mike was awesome! He definitely kept the party going. We were very happy with how he ran the reception. It is exactly what my daughter and her new husband wanted. Thank you!!
Best DJ and guitarist in the Cleveland area!
I was planning my wedding from out of state (in DC). I found Cleveland Music Group on the knot.com. Going with DJ Eli and Flamenco Guitarist Carlos Alberto from Cleveland Music Group was the best decision we could have made. Carlos played beautifully and we got multiple compliments. Eli was phenomenal, did a great job and made our wedding such a great experience. He was able to accommodate a broad range of age groups. We also had many people ask where they can find Eli for DJing at future events. Thumbs up for both of these guys and would look no further then using them for your event. 5 stars.
Everyone loved the band!
We hired Bottom Line Band for our wedding on August 1, and they were terrific! They learned our first dance song, and emceed the dinner. Everyone LOVED the band. We got comments on how great they were from almost the minute they started playing. Our dance floor was packed all night, even though it was a little sweaty in the barn. Even after their set breaks, once they started up everyone flocked back to the dance floor. We are so very glad we went with Bottom Line Band.
The musicians of My Three Sons do such a great job of keeping our guests entertained. They have a wide range of music to match the mood of cocktail hour, during dinner and then keeping the dance floor filled! They play something for everyone from 60s mellow and rock, to current hits – they sound great no matter what they are playing. All our guests look forward to enjoying the music of Sam and his band at our annual party.
We danced all night!!!
From start to finish, the entire group was very professional. They energized the crowd with a well rounded play list and engaged our guests. The dance floor was full all night and everyone commented on how fabulous the band was. Dwayne did a great job of emceeing and kept everything organized. Many thought we were crazy to spend this much money but afterward it was well worth the money spent. Thank you for helping to make our daughter’s wedding such a night to remember.
DJ DC did an amazing job coordinating the music for our Wedding and Reception. He kept the evening moving along, the dance floor hopping and the bride and groom, happy! Our guests are raving about how fun the night was. The nieces and nephews danced their legs off. The music was fun, diverse, and brought in all the guests to dance at some point. We are still smiling at the success of our Wedding Event and owe a good portion of that to DJ DC!
The Orchestra was more than we could have imagined!
I am still basking in the after glow of my daughter’s wedding. To say The Orchestra was fabulous is an understatement. They made the wedding! The dance floor was packed every moment the entire night – until 12:45 AM when they stopped playing. The song selection was superb. The tempo of the songs was right on. The songs that were requested by my daughter and son in law, and were learned by The Orchestra, were perfect. The timing of the evening, orchestrated by Dwayne, went very smoothly. Being the mother of the bride, I did not have to worry about a thing! The Orchestra took control and carried the evening. The Orchestra received rave reviews all night long from our guests, and I am still hearing about how wonderful they were. My sister now wants to have a party just so she can hire The Orchestra! Comments and text messages from our friends went like this: The wedding was beautiful, food delicious, your daughter looked magnificent…AND THE BAND WAS AMAZING!!! Thank you for making our wedding the best party we could have ever imagined!!!
Amazing DJ and MC!
Judi was amazing! She supported us throughout the entire process. She answered even the most basic questions for us about the wedding reception process and order of events with grace and helpfulness. Judi was a fantastic MC and kept the evening running smoothly. We had a very international feel at our reception and asked Judi and her brother Rick to manage a very diverse playlist which they did beautifully! We could not have asked for a better wedding night and would recommend them for all events and weddings.
Fantastic Wedding Reception
The team was fantastic – professional and very fun. Everyone had a phenomenal time.
Loved the entertainment!! Thank you! Stan was terrific!!!
Beautiful music for our ceremony!
The Bottom Line was terrific. They sounded amazing and really worked to keep people on the dance floor with their selections. We loved having them.
Truly amazing performance!!!
We have heard from so many people that TCB was outstanding! My husband and I absol loved their performance. They kept the crowd dancing all night.
The guest loved the Sunrise Jones Band and the genre of music played. They were on the dance floor all night long. Guest are still complimenting the band days after and recommending that they are to be booked for the next party!
So much fun!
The band, The Element, made the wedding the “party of the century!” (a quote from a guest at the wedding!) It was so much fun, and the dance floor was jam packed all night! The variety of the music was awesome…and the band was fabulous! I just can’t say enough about how happy we were with the band!
DJ Tommy D did an amazing job for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception! My husband and I wanted someone who could read the room and keep people on the dance floor, he did just that and kept our party going till the end! He was fun, easy-going, and and overall joy to work with!
Family and friends can’t stop talking about the DJ!
Herby (DJ Smoov) was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was professional, kind, and patient, and really helped us design the music for the wedding. My husband and I originally chose DJ Smoov because we like dance music (EDM), but we also needed his help with the ceremony, cocktail and dinner hours. That meant we got to enjoy a full range of genres throughout the evening: classical, soul, rock, oldies, EDM, hip-hop, top 40, and even some obscure French and Irish music we requested for our families! The DJ was one of our top priorities for the evening, and DJ Smoov was, as my dad said, “a home run.” He was spinning classics early and then threw the best dance party my family has ever seen. My sister was so sore from dancing that she couldn’t walk for 2 days…but she said it was definitely worth it!
The Sonata Strings set the tone for a romantic modern wedding ceremony. The Bottom Line kept everyone on the dance floor until midnight, they were fantastic and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend both of them!
DJ Eric performed in an excellent manner, from organizing the bridal party introductions, announcing the people giving toasts, excellent dinner music, very good family dance intros and played music that everyone enjoyed. A very good mixture of both slow and fast dances. He even got a dance train started that everyone loved. Also, I believe that he played almost every song that I (father of the Bride) requested before the event. The dance floor was always full, which is always a good indication that the DJ is performing his job very well. I’ve been to several weddings were you could not hear the DJ speak or the words to the songs. Overall great job Eric. The uplighting was great and very nicely positioned. The photo booth was a big hit and was one of the best that I have experienced.
The Orchestra was absolutely wonderful!!! Kept the whole crowd on their feet all night long!! People were saying, “who is this band?” “The band is great,” and “How did you find the band? They are fantastic!” All night I kept hearing the same comments! You truly made the evening a success! Thank you!!
Perfect for our Outdoor Service
The beauty and elegance of the music of Sonata Strings Trio added the perfect element to our outdoor wedding service. It was very easy to select the appropriate music, and it was flawlessly executed. We had a wonderful positive experience.
Fox 8 Wedding
Angela and I thought that your band was amazing. We could not be more happy with the service provided to us. The Element was such an amazing band and be advised that all of my guests have informed us how well your performed. I can honestly tell you that we could not be more pleased and thank you for making our wedding day, the day we have always dreamed of.
Cleveland Music Group was great to work with from start to finish. Scott Jones was always in touch through the planning process and prompt to respond to my calls or emails. Our DJ, Tommy Dwyer, was fantastic! He reached out to us a few weeks before our wedding to go over details. He was so friendly, fun, and as excited as we were. He made us feel very comfortable. He kept the reception on time and could totally read the crowd. I was on the dance floor more than anyone, and the music always fit the group of people who were also dancing. He played a great variety of music appealing to all ages. At the end of the night when the photographers and videographers were gone, he recorded a little of our last slow dance which was one of my favorite memories. It was so thoughtful of him to record it so I could have that memory forever. We had a blast!!!
Tommy Dwyer is the best DJ
Our wedding was a month ago. We still have friends and family talking about how great the DJ was. Tommy was great. He kept everything on schedule and more importantly, played great music and kept everything fun and exciting. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Tommy to anyone who is having a wedding.
The Element – Wedding
The Element was a great band for my wedding! They were so easy to work with during the planning and the wedding day. We were FLOODED with compliments from our wedding guests about the band!
Danced the night away!
Herby was a fantastic DJ. He helped orchestrate our event exactly as we had planned, and pumped up the energy of our guests. He introduced our wedding party perfectly, played songs exactly from the genres we requested, and kept the dance floor FULL all night long. Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ for our wedding. Thanks, Herby!!
“A Band” Rocked the House
I had a birthday party at Landerhaven & hired The ‘A’ Band with 7 pieces. The band is the party and my event could not have been more fun. They played a variety of music, were easy to work with, professional, and kept the party going all night. Everyone commented on how fantastic they were! Thanks for making my special day a success!
Rain Didn’t Stop Our Party at Pine Lake Trout Club
Erin Rossi was so helpful in the planning process and helped us find the perfect musicians for our event, John Toula (guitar) for the ceremony and DJ Jeff Kavali for the reception. Both were amazing to work with! John and Jeff were both so flexible and helped keep our guests entertained, despite the rain and impeding flood waters’ best efforts to stop our party. We could not have been more pleased with the music at our event! Thank you all so much for making this the best day of our lives!
Starkweather Brass – elegance for my wedding
Starkweather Brass did a lovely job with my wedding. They provided music during the entire mass, including prelude and postlude, and it was the perfect touch to the day. They were easy to book, easy to work with, and everything went well. I am part of a brass quintet and my fellow quintet members were also impressed! I’d highly recommend the group.
Scott Jones was fantastic!!
I couldn’t recommend DJ Scott Jones enough – from working with him the months leading up to the wedding to the day of, he made the whole process easy and enjoyable. He was extremely attentive to all of our needs. Scott’s expertise ensured our day ran smoothly, we can’t thank him enough. Our guests can’t stop talking about how much fun they had on the dance floor. Scott is truly a professional!
A great celebration with The Element!
We saw The Element play twice before hiring them for our Wedding. We loved the band and knew that they would put on a good show….we never expected to get the kind of amazing, blow the roof performance we ended up experiencing! The only instructions we had going in was to make sure everyone was dancing and having a good time. From the dancing during dinner to the hava nagila they kept our guests on their feet! Even the one who never get on the dance floor 🙂 Nearly every song we asked to hear was played, and we both loved how the band interacted with our guests. We were especially impressed with choice saxophone and trumpet solos. Everyone we talked to had wonderful things to say about The Element. We are both so happy we found this group and wish them all the success in the future. Thank you for everything. It was a great celebration with The Element!
The Avenue was outstanding.
The Avenue was outstanding. The musical arrangements, the band and singers were exactly what we wanted and more. They kept the volume to a level where people dancing could enjoy the music, and those that wanted to talk could hear above the band. We were constantly being complemented throughout the evening on how much everyone enjoyed the music. We would hire this band again in a heartbeat, and we will definitely recommend them in the future.
Set the perfect mood!!
On our wedding day, Carey Viton played the keyboards during our cocktail hour. While I did not hear him personally (we were taking photos), our guests mentioned how perfect the song choices were for the cocktail hour. The music that was played was a good mix of oldies + new, just what was needed to please all guests. It set the perfect mood that we wanted for the hour! I didn’t get the chance to thank him personally – so I hope he reads this so that he knows how thankful we are!
DJ Jeff did a great job as the DJ for North Ridgeville High School’s Prom. He was very accommodating and worked with the students’ requests. Thank you!
DJs were great! They arrived on time and played great music for the students. The students danced all night! I thank you! The DJs were very professional in their manner! I would recommend them again!
Choosing a DJ was one of the most daunting tasks for us as we were planning our wedding. We are the first of our friends and family in the Cleveland area to plan a wedding, so we did not have any recommendations to start with. We knew that a DJ could make or break a wedding, so choosing the “right one” was very important to us. From the beginning of working with Scott, we knew that he would help make our wedding day go smoothly and put all of our worries to rest. He was not only very kind and very easy to talk to, but he acted as a mini wedding planner as he helped us plan out the flow of our reception. He took a lot of time to meet with us and chat about what we wanted to night to be like, and even worked with us to choose the perfect uplight color.
We had a last minute change to speeches + a few song choices, and Scott responded instantly, reassuring that everything would work out perfectly. Scott Jones literally was the perfect addition to our wedding reception. Before the event even started, he helped adjust the uplighting in the ceremony space, even though it was another vendor who set it up. He made the space look absolutely breathtaking, without even having to ask! this is a true testament of how much Scott cares about his clients and their happiness on their wedding day. I can’t thank him enough for doing this! As for the actual reception, he helped make it flow effortlessly, and helped us move along with ease. He helped guide us on what we should be doing next (i.e. after we ate, he told us to start going around to tables, and then told us when it was time to sit back down for toasts, etc.). He choose songs that pleased ALL people at the reception that got everyone up and dancing. We couldn’t believe some of the moves that our older guests were showing off!!
Many of our guests who attended the wedding commented on how great Scott was. My dad (who is a hard man to please!), commented on how awesome Scott was and how if people were not having a good time – that is was their own fault as Scott set the tone for an incredible night. Scott is the type of person that makes you want to have another wedding all over again just so that you can have the chance to work with him and experience him in action. A huge thank you to Scott and the rest of the Cleveland Music Group for helping make our wedding absolutely perfect. We hope to work with you again in the future, and will certainly be telling all of our friends about you!!!
The Best Night of My Life!
We got so many compliments on how amazing our band was…from dinner music through the end of the night, they were phenomenal. They really directed the flow of the night and engaged the crowd – what a blast. Leading up to the wedding Michael from TCB was dream to work with – he was as enthusiastic as we were for our big day and so communicative and helpful. We wish we could have danced MORE – we were so busy running around all night! We wish I could relive it all again!
Our event was truly a GREAT event thanks to The Orchestra and their outstanding performance. They were extremely organized and professional. They were accommodating to some changes in our agenda that evening. And the result was amazing…..an awesome performance for our guests who all seemed to enjoy the songs!
Best night of our lives
The band was amazing and had everyone on the dance floor all night long!!! They played every song with perfection! The fact that they learned our first dance song just for us was extremely special! The Orchestra truly helped make this the best night of our lives!
DJ DC is amazing!
I could not have asked for a better DJ for our wedding. From the first contact I had with Cleveland Music Group I was sold. Every time I spoke with someone there from choosing the DJ to then speaking with our chosen DJ it just got me more excited for the wedding! DJ DC was friendly and so energetic from the getgo. He was so easy to work with and did an amazing job keeping the party going. He played the perfect music selections for each aspect of the reception and definitely had people out on the dance floor all night long! I would HIGHLY recommend him and Cleveland Music Group.
We loved Rick and Judi!
We could not have been more pleased with Backstreet Entertainment. Rick set such an elegant tone playing jazz on the baby grand piano during cocktails. Once Judi took over with introductions and toasts during dinner, the evening just continued to soar. With a crowd ranging from 20-somethings to 80+, Judi and Rick kept us going until midnight. Plus, they are just lovely people with whom we really enjoyed sharing our special day. We would highly recommend them to family and friends without hesitation.
Packed Dance Floor all night!
DJ Scott Jones – along with DJ Tommy Dwyer– kept our dance floor packed all night long! Scott was so professional, helpful and responsive with any questions or requests we had!
Best Wedding Band in CLE
We had K-street 8 piece for our wedding on New Year’s Eve. The staff at Cleveland Music Group was professional and quick to respond to all of my questions. Kyle Primous, lead in the band, was amazing! He knew exactly what we wanted and delivered a spectacular performance for our wedding reception. The dance floor was packed the entire night. Most of our guests are saying it was the most fun wedding they have been to. I highly recommend Cleveland Music Group, or K-Street for any event!!
The Avenue Rocks!
The Avenue rocked the house at our daughter’s wedding reception. Everyone was on the dance floor. The music played was great for all ages of guests from the bride’s 93 year old aunt to the 2 year old flower girl. Tiffany was wonderful to work with. Thanks for making the evening a night to remember!!
The “A” Band more than met our expectations. Everyone from our group was happy with the music and felt that the band was great. We were a little spread out as a group at a larger venue, but the band did a great job adapting as the party went along and really made for a night of dancing and fun. Overall, we could not be happier with the choice to have The “A” Band play for our holiday party.
Exceptional and first-class Band!
The Orchestra did an exceptional job at our wedding reception. They are first-class, professional, extremely talented, and caring all at the same time. We would reserve The Orchestra for future events or recommend to family and friends without hesitation.
DJ Gene Natale was…
Professional, Efficient, Accommodating, Quick thinking, and able to read the room. Overall a great time was had by all!
DJ Eric Smith did an absolutely amazing job at our wedding. He kept the music and dancing going all night, was awesome at sensing the mood and preferences of our guests, and was beyond nice to work with (even with a few last minute changes). Couldn’t recommend him more highly – really made our reception what it was!
DJ Scott Jones kept the party going!
Scott Jones=bomb.com. He kept the party going! Thank you for a great night!
Everyone was on the dance floor the entire time!
You played at my daughter’s wedding at The Tudor Arms. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire time! You did a great job. Thanks so much for helping to make the evening extra special!
The Music Made Magical Memories
Erin was professional. The group did an amazing job of responding to our concerns regarding the acoustics in the venue. People were able to converse throughout dinner and beyond. There was an excellent mix of music and people of several generations enjoyed dancing, including my husband’s 97 year old mother. The Element was fantastic! Thank you!
The Orchestra was absolutely fantastic!
Nearly all of our ~150 guests were on the dance floor the entire evening, and the energy level was high all night. Everyone had a blast–the older folks, our friends, and even the young kids. We’ve received so many complements on having “the best wedding band ever” from so many guests– we whole heartedly recommend The Orchestra!
