  • Total Engagement

    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!!!!

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!

    The Best

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

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.

    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!!!

The dance floor was packed the entire night. I can’t count the number of people that came up to me during the night and remarked that The Orchestra was the best wedding band they have ever seen. I will recommend The Orchestra to everyone I talk with! Thank you again!!

Once again they had our friends and family on the dance floor the entire night! We have had so many compliments from everyone on the band. We even had the grandparents out dancing and they are all over 80 years old! I just cannot say enough about how professional this band is. It is evident that they love singing and entertaining. I hope they are still together and singing when daughter #3 gets married! As I will hire them once again!

All band members were extremely talented, professional and fun. Dwayne was an especially attentive, fun and classy emcee! The sound guy Shawn was a great DJ when the band was on breaks, playing things we put on an iPod for him, but always choosing songs that seemed to fit the mood.

    We really can’t explain it, but there’s a feeling you get when the Band is playing all the right music, everyone is dancing, I mean everyone dancing and you wish the night is never going to end. The Orchestra helped make our Wedding night, one to remember! From their music selection to their energy and sound. If your even thinking about checking around or going somewhere else, your missing out. The Orchestra will be everything you hoped for and more!

The music was fun and lively keeping the dance floor crowded – just the way we wanted it! Thanks for all your help. The entire process working with JBP was easy and accommodating!

    I want to thank you and your band and sound technicians for all of the your skills and courtesies. Everyone had a great time, and again for our second experience hosting a reception with you and your band, everyone had great praise for the JBO. Your musical skills are evident to all, but we really appreciate your ability to influence the mood of the event with your music, to achieve just the right atmosphere for cocktails, then dinner, then dancing. We will continue to be big promoters of you, The Orchestra, and your stable of talented acts.

    There are no words to describe how grateful Jason and I are for the AMAZING performance that you and the rest of the Orchestra gave us on our wedding night. You went so far above and beyond what you needed to do, and every single person there noticed. People are still raving about the band, and in looking at the pictures from the photographer of everyone dancing, it’s plain to see why. Everyone had the best time ever, and we owe it all to you.

    At a wedding reception, the band either makes or breaks the party. The Orchestra MADE our reception. The dancing began with the first note and continued until the last. Jerry took control of the process and led us seemlessly through the night. What a wonderful show. You clearly know your audience!

    The Orchestra is hands down the ONLY band to hire for a wedding reception. The professionalism exhibited and the ambiance created far exceeded our expectations. Before, during and after the wedding, Jerry was amazing to work with! After the reception, everyone raved about the music. It truly added a level of class not often found at weddings. We were thrilled to have the JBO as part of our special day…they helped to make it a very memorable event for everyone in attendance…thank you all!!

    Any chance the Orchestra or the A-Band is playing in the Cleveland area this weekend (11/13-11/15)? Planning for a large party in 2016 and would love to check them out in person if possible.

    Please provide your availability and a quote for a backyard reception in Medina, OH on June 20th. We will have 60 guests, so small venue, but love your music.
