The Perfect Night

The entire evening went off without a hitch. Having an experienced DJ in Evan Foltz allowed us to enjoy our reception rather than fearing the unexpected.

We could not be happier with The Element! All the band members are so so talented! And Erin is a wonderful emcee – she really knows how to keep the crowd excited and engaged!! We got so many compliments from our guests it was incredible! The Element just made the night so special, and we are forever grateful!

We had an exceptional experience with both Eric & Nate and highly recommend both of them!!!
Throughout our planning process DJ Eric Smith was organized, communicative, professional, and easy to talk to. At our reception, he did an amazing job of keeping our dancefloor going late into the night (no one wanted to leave)!!! He also seamlessly managed our reception timeline and didn’t miss anything. We really appreciated that he could manage the crowd, help direct people at important moments, but also wasn’t over-powering or too aggressive with his presence.

Eric (maybe Nate too?) set up sound for our outdoor ceremony & reception (everyone said they could hear us, even the people in the back)!! He was even ready & able to help us figure out a last minute iPad zoom streaming setup for our officiant (which fortunately we didn’t end up needing).

Nate was also phenomenal as our ceremony musician. He was so easygoing, sweet, reliable and easy to get in touch with. And he is incredibly talented!! He was able to play every single song we wanted, including several that weren’t on his list. His singing & guitar playing impressed all of our guests, and were the absolutely perfect vibe for our ceremony in the woods. Thank you for everything!

wonderful experience

DJ Eric Smith made our night so memorable, he was a consummate professional and a delight to work with! Eric did an exceptional job of reading the crowd and made sure that everyone made it to the dance floor. It was such a special experience to watch everyone we love in one room dancing and having fun! We cannot thank Eric and the CLE music group enough for the huge role they played in making our wedding such a wonderful experience!!

Bonini/Maat Wedding

The performance of The Avenue band was outstanding. The energy in the room was ignited by the musicianship and set lists lead by Tiffany. The positive feedback from our guests were too numerous to note! Erin was also incredible to work with. Erin was always respectful and pleasant! She did not miss a beat and she always responded in a timely manner. Lastly, DJ Hector was a pleasure to work with and he complimented the event very nicely. Thank you all for making the wedding as perfect as possible.

Amazing DJ

Scott Jones did an amazing job as DJ for our daughter’s wedding. The dance floor was filled all night and he did a fabulous job with introductions and announcements. He made sure the reception ran exactly like the bride and groom wanted, including providing specialty lighting and audio equipment for the ceremony. We had booked CLE Music Group in 2019 but due to COVID had to postpone the wedding. Scott was extremely responsive during the 2 years plus between booking and the event. We so very much appreciate his contribution to the Best Day Ever!

Fantastic DJ!

DJ Eric kept everyone on the dance floor all night! He was kind and professional and got everyone set up before the ceremony to ensure the microphones worked and were clipped on properly. He was responsive in emails and phone calls before the event. I didn’t have to worry about anything when it came to day of and that was so important.

thebeardeddj – the best ever

DJ Eric was absolutely incredible to work with. He went above and beyond – helped organize our timeline, shared feedback on our seating chart to ensure we had the best sound during toasts/dancing, and of course played killer music. No one left the dance floor once the music started. Thank you for being continuously amazing (Eric was the DJ at my cousin’s and then my older brother’s weddings).

Beyond expectations

I don’t know where to begin, The A Band was incredible and blew away our highest expectations! The dance floor was completely packed and the performances were incredible to the point where I didn’t know if I was listening to the A band or the actual recording. All of our friends and families raved about the band and the amazing job on the hora that they did. Would 1000% recommend to EVERYONE. Thank you guys so much for making our wedding so special!!!

I booked Difrent Vibez Trio and they absolutely blew me (and all of our guests) away!! They were even better than I could have imagined and their energy was amazing – people were up and dancing immediately and couldn’t even stop after the reception was supposed to end.

Their band leader Tommie was super easy to work with and listened to all of my requests, and Scott through the Cleveland Music Group was extremely helpful and found us the perfect group for our wedding!!
