  • Lynn from Celebration Music and Events dj'd our wedding, and she was WONDERFUL! When reaching out for price quote and what we were looking for/needed for our venue I received a promo response with a breakdown of costs and time frame, and if there was a dj available for our date. Celebration Music was comparably priced to other dj's we looked at, but gave us many more options than other vendors. Once booked Celebration Music provided us with a personalized website that we could chose songs we wanted played and those we didnt, along with form to complete if there were certain songs we wanted played for certain moments like processional, recessional, entrance as couple etc. So we were really able to tailor our event to us. Lynn was easily available and responsive to answer any questions we had, and was very professional. She also did an amazing job reading the crowd and played songs that kept them up and celebrating. I cannot recommend Celebration Music enough! -Heather Roman

  • We had Pressure Point Band perform at our wedding. They were an incredible live band. The guests at our wedding continue to gush over the wonderful music that was performed at our wedding. They played a variety of music at our wedding and respected our "Must Play" and "Do Not Play" lists we presented. They added a key ingredient to our wonderful wedding day. One additional comment: They sounded far better live than they do recorded.

  • A New Groove...awesome! They did a superb job at our wedding on 6/25/2016 at the Adrianna Hill Grand Ballroom in Portland Oregon. They did it all for us...two musicians performed at cocktail hour (sax & guitar), they performed intro music for bridal party, DJ'd the entire event, play the first dance, and rocked it out the rest of the night...everybody danced. They draw a fine line providing an awesome performance while still keeping the focus on us...the bride and groom. We had an awesome time at our own wedding reception and danced until midnight. Ending the night with some Night Ranger (requested), was perfect. Can't recommend these guys enough. Very flexible and have a large of range of what they cover. Male and Female lead vocals, 2 sax's, piano, 2 guitar, bass, drums...doesn't get better than that. And they DJ! Can't beat it. Also, they hooked us up with dance lessons. It was a lot of fun, a great break from the wedding planning and we got many compliments (probably because of ... Read more

  • Lynn and CM Events were fantastic to work with! Lynn was quick to respond to all of my emails and was extremely helpful through the planning process. They have a very large selection of music to choose from and if it is not on their list, they will make sure to get it for you. The day before our wedding, we decided to move our ceremony from indoors to outdoors and Lynn was quickly able to make arrangements to bring a second sound system. They kept the evening flowing very well and only made necessary announcements. They had the best rates of all the DJs I contacted and their services were superior! I would definitely recommend Lynn and CM Events!

  • After spending time trying to find a DJ service that didn't break our budget (seriously $2000 to play someone else's recorded music??) we came across Lynn Winkle and Celebration Music. At our initial consultation, Lynn was warm and friendly and showed us a bunch of glowing thank you notes from previous couples. Once we learned that she is both a singer and a dancer (my husband is a singer and I am a dancer), we felt that this was the perfect fit for us! We loved the ability to create a playlist online of various songs we'd like to hear and Lynn did a good job of mixing those in with requests during the reception. She was a great DJ and emcee- there was nothing cheesy or obnoxious but just a very pleasant entertainment experience for our guests!

  • This review is for Mike, the band's agent and A New Groove, the wedding band. Just want to leave a short note of thanks to Mike, the agent, who made himself readily available for our questions. Mike went the extra mile and helped us to see A New Groove live at the Tigard Festival of Balloons, which made us very comfortable in signing the band. Many of our guests appreciated the classics from John Lennon's Let It Be to Journey's Anyway You Want It. The band's lead, Leisa, was very responsive to email and special requests for the band leading all the way up to the event date. On top of all this, they performed at a very reasonable rate. Based on our positive experience, we would not hesitate to recommend A New Groove and Celebration Music to others.

  • Working with Mike and Pressure Point was a positive experience from start to finish. The most important component is obviously the music: these guys are incredible! We were the first of our friends to get married, and after the reception everyone said how they had to have a live band at their wedding because of how great our music was. To those of you wondering if their acoustics are as good outdoors as indoors, fear not, we had our wedding outdoors at a Winery and the sound still rocked! We opted to have not only the full band at our reception, but for a modest additional fee keyboard for the ceremony and classical guitar/flute for cocktail hour after the ceremony - both highly recommended. Mike was incredibly responsive to email - important for us as we were arranging the wedding from out of state. He was able to procur some wonderful lights for our outdoor dance floor on request, and also set up a great audio system for our ceremony, best man/maid of honor toasts, etc. ... Read more

  • These guys ROCK! Pressure Point is an incredible band. We told them we were a lively bunch and we asked the band to play accordingly. They delivered! They even had Grandma and babies dancing until the final call. They can play nearly anything and do an amazing job blending one song into the next. We also had their guitarist do our ceremony and cocktail hour music and he was great! Highly recommend them. They are worth every penny and more!

  • I'm so glad we found Celebration Music & Events! They assisted us so much from wedding DJ to ceremony string quartet to event lighting and even dance lessons! They are a one stop event planning vendor with top quality service! Definitely go to them and save you a lot of time and hassle!

  • A New Groove is a band in Portland OR, and they ROCKED my wedding. Perfect music selection, high energy, incredible voices, and they were so easy to work with. They had everyone from the wedding party to our priest killing it on the dance floor for hours. And in between sets, they played an iPod, which went very smoothly. AND they are way more affordable than other bands. I think they are the best kept secret in Portland wedding bands. Can't recommend them highly enough. http://www.anewgroove.com/

  • Lynn and CM Events was great. They provided us with our dinner music of an awesome trio - the Michael Winkle Trio and then Lynn took over as dj! She was fantastic! I was so happy we chose them. She felt out the crowd and the night just flowed! We had the best time dancing. Her transition choice of Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night by the Black Eyed Peas from the Hora was so on the money! We were so glad we hired them. They made our ceremony go smoothly with sound. The Michael Winkle Trio was perfect for the early part of our reception and I even wish I could have danced a little to them. It was a great night though!

  • I CANNOT say enough good things about this band! They are so talented and entertaining - an not corney at all (like many other wedding singers we looked at). They took my wedding to a whole new level that I had never anticipated. They had everyone on the dance floor during the FIRST SONG! They ended-up staying for 2 hours longer than we hired them for because the dance floor was still packed at the end of the night. They even learned a new song for our wedding! They drove all the way up from Portland to Seattle at no extra charge and they were $2000 LESS than the Seattle wedding bands we looked at using! My husband & I both agree that hiring Pressue Point was the best-spent money of the whole wedding.

  • Absolutely the BEST wedding band ever! Gave us much more than we paid for, were super fun & friendly, got everyone dancing right after the cake was cut! Very eager to please, even learned new songs for us, willing to do anything we wanted or needed very quickly. Was not great with recommendations prior to the wedding. Was almost half the price of other Seattle bands (drove to our Seattle wedding for free). The guests practically rioted when they stopped playing! (They had to play for an extra 2 hours!)
