Evan Foltz first took interest in DJing helping his father, a local radio and event DJ, at events in the mid 90s. In 2009, Evan took control of the mixer and began DJing weddings and special events. Additionally, Evan trained directly with CMG’s owner, DJ Scott E. Jones, assisting him at events and weddings for two years learning how to make your event go perfectly.
Evan’s passion for music led him to completing a Master’s Degree in Trumpet Performance from The University of Akron in 2016.
Evan has years of live performance experience, equipping him well to serve as your DJ. When it comes to making your party a blast, DJ Evan Foltz is able to read the crowd and has a knack for keeping everyone dancing all night long!
Evan Foltz was fabulous as our wedding DJ! We thought he was great from our first meeting with him; he was professional and thoughtful while giving guidance from his expertise about what makes a wedding party great. He was always available to us in the planning process and really flexible, taking suggestions and offering helpful feedback.
In terms of the day and night of, could not have gone smoother. He was on it with the sound system for all our vendors, and then made our wedding night dance floor so special! He has a natural flare for understanding the flow of a night, getting people on the dance floor, and transitioning the music as the night goes on. He went above and beyond our expectations, checked in with us the perfect amount throughout the night, and was just really kind, thoughtful, and awesome to work with. Talented DJ, couldn’t have been happier!Sarah Smith nd Keith GarberJul 31, 2021Thorncreek Winery
DJ Evan far exceeded our expectations in keeping us and our guests on the dance floor the entire night and begging for an encore. Evan was so friendly, organized and accommodating throughout the planning process – we couldn’t be happier with our decision!Gina Torek & David BakerJul 17, 2021The Lake Club of Ohio
DJ Evan Foltz was a pleasure to work with during the planning process, as well as on the day of our wedding. He did a great job selecting appropriate ceremony music. He played everything we wanted for dinner hour/reception, but also used our list to add additional tunes to keep the crowd rocking and energized.Jessica KlessJun 19, 2021Gervasi Vineyard
The music for our wedding ceremony and reception was perfect! Sonata Strings did a beautiful job during our ceremony! DJ Evan Foltz listened to us, and made the music selection process so easy! We had so much fun dancing all night! Our guests loved the music and fun atmosphere! Thank you CLE Music Group!Kate and Brian MurrayApr 24, 2021Hillbrook
I can’t express enough how great of a job DJ Evan Foltz did at our wedding this past Saturday. He made the event flow smoothly, communicated with me during the event discreetly, and was patient and gave us extra time when we needed it.
The music was perfect the whole night, and it was hard for us to find a moment to sit down because we didn’t want to stop dancing. Evan took our suggestions for both the cocktail hour and reception and made a spectacularly tailored playlist. We also loved that he was dancing and getting into the music behind the booth – it really shows just how passionate he is about his work. He was having a good time and made sure everyone else did too.
Most of all, we had heard from many people that our venue, Cleveland City Hall, had poor acoustics because it is a large, open space. However, we didn’t have any trouble hearing anything throughout the entire night. From the ceremony, to the toasts, to the music at the reception, everything sounded great from start to finish.Shannon and Steven De SciscioNov 30, 2019Cleveland City Hall
DJ Evan Foltz did an amazing job at our wedding in Chippewa Lake, OH. He was professional, friendly, fun, and great at reading the room and choosing music that kept the party going. He also did a great job of keeping my now husband and I on schedule throughout the night. In preparing for the wedding, he had excellent advice on music selection and planning for reception activities like the wedding party welcome and anniversary dance. Evan was always responsive to emails, and meetings prior to the wedding were timely, efficient, and enjoyable. Evan is also just a cool person and very easy to talk to and work with. We highly recommend Cleveland Music Group and specifically DJ Evan for anyone in search of a DJ for their wedding.Jeff and Rebecca Gordon (Ita)Sep 28, 2019The Oaks Lakeside
DJ Evan and CLE Music Group were so great to work with! Evan was not only an amazing DJ, but also a great MC. He helped the party flow easily, and you can tell he really has a passion for music. He was able to cater to the different vibes we wanted for the different parts of our wedding, and also make adjustments when needed. He was very professional and easy to work with, from the planning to the wedding day. We highly recommend him for your big day or big event!Angie Ilg and Nick SterneAug 17, 2019Hines Hill
DJ Evan Foltz was amazing from the Skype meetings before the wedding, answering every email quickly, and on the wedding day. Our guests had so much fun and the dance floor was full the whole time. Evan was able to pick up on our taste in music as well as our guests. He’s the best.
Thank you Evan!!!! (:
Singer Angelina Fiorini was amazing at our church ceremony. Her voice literally gave our guests chills. She was awesome to work with and made our day so special! She was even willing to sing part of one of our songs in a different language!
Thank you Angelina!!!Anita and Pete MeadowsSep 21, 2019Crowne plaza playhouse square and St. John Cantius
I am so happy we chose Cleveland Music Group for our wedding. The staff there are so friendly and professional and will help guide you to find the right DJ (or musician, etc.) that you are looking for and who fits your budget. We chose DJ Evan Foltz for our wedding and he did an outstanding job making sure our wedding day was perfect! He was able to find instrumental versions of our favorite songs to play for the ceremony, he played our handpicked songs during cocktail hour and dinner, helped all the events flow smoothly throughout the day, and did an amazing job keeping guests on the dance floor!! He went above and beyond to make us and our guests happy – he even setup an extra speaker so that we could hear our cocktail hour music while we were away taking photos. Evan played must-play songs during the reception, he avoided our do-not-play songs, and he read the crowd to play songs that would keep guests entertained. He was also very professional throughout the whole day. I would absolutely recommend that you chose DJ Evan Foltz from Cleveland Music Group!Carolyn Straiker and Alex ForsthoefelAug 24, 2019Happy Days Lodge
DJ Evan was accommodating, easy to communicate with and played what we wanted. He was not the typical DJ that said he needed to play line dance music (which we dislike and made must not plays) which is a testament to his versatility and experience as a DJ. He was organized, timely and kept the dance floor going the whole night. Would definitely recommend.Michael and Olivia RodgersAug 10, 2019The Barrington Golf Club
Music can make or break a big event… like your wedding! Boy, did DJ Evan Foltz MAKE our wedding! The music selections were spot on and he accommodated to not only our needs and preferences, but to all guests. Not once was the dance floor empty!
As a music therapist, I wanted to make our first dance super special and chose to sing part of “I See the Light” (from Disney’s ‘Tangled.’) DJ Evan Foltz worked with me to help create a flawless track of both instrumental and original recording for it!
Cannot say it enough: CLEVELAND MUSIC GROUP ROCKS!Katey and Matt WelichAug 3, 2019New Orleans Party Center
We had a wonderful evening thanks in large part to Dan Bruce (guitar) and DJ Evan Foltz! The cocktail hour music was charming and super well-executed, just as you’d expect from an artist as accomplished and creative as Dan Bruce. Later in the evening, DJ Evan handled the announcing duties well and proceeded to rock the courtyard with a spot-on parade of hits, as well as a deep cut or two. People raised in the ’60s and ’70s jammed to the ’80s sounds of Prince and the B-52s, younger folks enjoyed “Runaround Sue” just as much as all the Lizzo and OutKast, and in general everyone had only good things to say about the music.Nicholas Stevens and Sophie BennJul 6, 2019Lantern Court at Holden Arboretum
Cleveland Music Group was awesome to work with – they were professional, responsive, and helpful. It was clear that DJ Evan spent a lot of time thinking about the vibe we were going for, and created a perfect mix of music for our event. He kept the energy high all night (as evident by the fact that there was a full dance floor even as the event space turned the lights on to end the event) and our guests had a blast. I would highly recommend CMG to anyone planning a wedding in the Cleveland area!Katie DubyakJun 8, 2019The Union Club
We decided to hire a DJ for our annual company picnic this year and boy are we sure glad we did! It was the perfect addition to the day. The music selection was perfect and DJ Evan could not have been better. Thank you CLE Music Group for adding to the day!Nook IndustriesJun 21, 2019Klima Gardens in Cuyahoga Heights
Wow! DJ Evan Foltz was AMAZING! Talk about hustle. He showed up to the venue really early to make sure he was all set up. He communicated with us throughout the night to make sure he was meeting expectations. He handled everything with so much ease and didn’t seem stressed at all. We had multiple meetings before the wedding with him and he really took the time to understand our style, preferences and what we were looking for. Our reception was amazing thanks to DJ Evan. Our families and friends have all said this was the most fun reception they’ve ever attended. The dance floor was packed the entire night and everyone had a great time! We are SO grateful to Evan for all of his hard work. I could not recommend DJ Evan more highly. He did an absolutely incredible job!EJ and EmmaJun 14, 2019Windows On The River
To all those considering Cleveland Music Group, they are THE BEST. I live in New York City and had to interview multiple companies over the phone. Every company laughed at our request – we wanted a DJ to spin old fashioned vinyl records from the 50s and 60s for our entire reception. I was assured that I would never find anyone who does this. Then, I found Cleveland Music Group who essentially employs real artists and DJs to work your wedding based on their own talents and styles. This is not a cookie cutter DJ company that only offers one thing. So, CMG sent me right over to DJ Evan, who has his masters in Trumpet, a fine taste in music and a massive vinyl collection to boot! Everyone at CMG went out of their way to accommodate us. Even was FABULOUS and the best part? His attitude. No stuck up DJs at this company. Evan was a total dear and we can’t thank him and CMG enough.Laura & Pete TalamoOct 28, 2018Mapleside Farms Barn
DJ Evan was easy to work with and very helpful at identifying the songs and genres we wanted. His library had everything we wanted to play and his DJ selections were right on par. Our guests loved him and the dance floor was never empty. If you want a friendly, well prepared, professional DJ who plays what you want as well as what the night needs then Evan is your guy.Patrick BarnesOct 13, 2018The Union Club
The whole experience with booking Cleveland Music Group for our wedding was fantastic. Tony was extremely helpful with recommending DJs that matched what we were looking for. We decided on DJ Evan Foltz and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Evan was great to work with as we chose what type of music to play for each part of our wedding. On the actual day he was great at reading the crowd and adjusting the music based on what everyone seemed to be enjoying. Our wedding was so much fun and I can’t thank Evan enough for being such an important part of making it a great night. We got tons of compliments on the music and how awesome our DJ was.Melissa & CalebOct 6, 2018Vosh
DJ Evan went beyond his line of duties by providing a generator when the power went out. I can only imagine how he felt, while Jordyn and I didn’t fret. A bunch of kudos to Evan as he never faltered and was extremely professional.Pete and Jordyn CatavolosAug 11, 2018Stillwater Place at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
