  • Wow! The avenue exceeded all of our expectations. They were wonderful! We had a "covid" wedding, so formal dancing was not permitted on a dance floor, however, we were allowed to dance at/near our tables and chairs. No one would have known a dance floor was not needed to have such an amazing night. The Avenue made the wedding day feel completely normal and full of energy. Everyone was up and dancing near their seats and having an amazing time. We owe that all to the amazing band! Tiffany was so responsive and helpful in the planning purposes beforehand. Truly, in every way, they were amazing. We received countless calls and texts the day and week after mentioning how much they enjoyed the singers, instrumentalists, and live band as a whole. We can't thank them enough!!

  • We hired Bill Bowen from Cleveland Music Group and he did an amazing job!! We had a few requests and general likes/dislikes that we discussed beforehand and with that he created the perfect playlist that had the dance floor full all night long! Our photographer recommended Cleveland Music Group and said she had been at several weddings with different DJ's that were all consistently good and we would have to agree! We also had to postpone our wedding due to COVID and they were very flexible and accommodating to our new date. They were very professional and easy to communicate with throughout the process.

    Cara - Thanks for leaving this wonderful review on Wedding Wire too! You're the best! From all of us here at CLE MUSIC GROUP, we wish you all the best the world has to offer. - Congrats! - Scott

  • Choosing The Element for our wedding was the best choice ever! The music was fantastic, they were so easy to work with, and they made our reception an amazing experience for all our guests! Couldn’t recommend them more.

  • We selected the Best Choice DJ option and were blessed to get Brian McDonald about 6 weeks before the wedding date. He was very personable, got our style, and took requests in stride. Our guests all loved the music and many of them danced the whole night. The only thing that we felt could have been improved was a special circumstance. Our maid of honor is international and was unable to attend due to travel restrictions. We had a recording of her speech that our DJ played. He was more than accommodating in playing the speech, but we felt that there wasn't a lot of explanation for our guests, many of whom didn't know who they were suddenly hearing over the speakers. I'm sure this is not something DJs deal with every day, but we were just a little saddened that our maid of honor's speech felt rushed and unexplained.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thanks for your review. We're so happy you enjoyed CLE Music Group and DJ BAM (Brian McDonald). I feel terrible you were less than excited how the recorded speech was handled. Brian noted: "I made an announcement & said the maid of honor is overseas and has recorded a speech, and pressed play." - We're sorry. If you wanted us to say something in addition (possibly something prepared by the two of you) we would have been happy to do that as well. - In any event, THANKS for trusting us to keep your guests dancing! Best Wishes & Congrats - Scott (President/CLE Music Group)

  • We hired The Element to play at my daughter's wedding reception. I could not be more pleased. We are a family of musicians and the bar was high. Erin's voice is amazing and Tony Koussa Jr and the rest of the instrumentalists are phenomenal. The dance floor was full all night. You get what you pay for; these people are professional musicians. If you have to choose between having a few more hours d'oeuvres or hiring the band, hire the band!

  • the avenue totally made our wedding! we were worried about keeping people on the dance floor at our 75-person, fresh-out-of-covid wedding, but the dance floor was packed all. night. long. tiffany made planning super easy and built the perfect setlist (while also respecting our 'do not play' and 'must play' lists). i am SUPER picky and was bummed we weren't able to hear them play live before we booked, but they sound exactly like they do on the website, if not better. book them!

    Thank you for this amazing review of "The Avenue". I just shared it with Tiffany and the rest of the band! Thanks so much for trusting CLE Music Group + The Avenue to keep your dance floor packed! Best Wishes & Congrats! - Scott.

  • DJ Evan Foltz killed it as our DJ! even though our wedding was small, the dance floor was packed! the cocktail hour and dinner music were exactly what we wanted and he really read the room for dancing, picking songs he knew would get the crowd moving. also thanks for playing WAP after every single bridesmaid requested it lol.

    Thanks for your kind review Alissa. Evan is one of the best! Thanks for using CLE Music Group & DJ Evan Foltz. We hope to see you again at a friends wedding in the future! Congrats.

  • The Element was the perfect band for our wedding reception. Erin worked with us through many changes and postponements due to COVID. She is flexible and professional in every aspect. Erin, Tony, Rick, and all the musicians were beyond what we had hoped and envisioned! We have heard from all our guests how wonderful and talented the band is! We cannot recommend the Element enough for any event!

    YAY! Thanks so much for the amazing review of "The Element" here at CLE Music Group Katie. From all of us, CONGRATS & Best Wishes - Scott.

  • We hired The Orchestra via the Cleveland Music Group and they were outstanding!!!! I work in the music industry so was a little nervous about hiring a band but they exceeded my expectations. Dwayne (band leader) was easy to work with and checked in with me before key moments so I could ensure my photographer and key wedding party members were in place which was a nice touch. The band were terrific, lead vocals and horns were amazing, and the dance floor was packed the entire night - even during the breaks when they had the ipod on. I can't express enough how great they were. The Cleveland Music Group was also very easy to work with and I was able to book my ceremony, cocktail, and reception music through them as well as the up-lighting for the reception so it made planning very easy.

    Missy - Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with everyone on Wedding Wire. It was a pleasure working with you. I'll pass along your praises to our Sonata Strings & The Orchestra. Best Wishes and Cheers to an amazing 2020! - Scott

  • We used DJ Eric (i.e. The Bearded DJ) from Cleveland Music Group for our November wedding, and we were extremely pleased with our choice. All of our interactions with Eric and everyone at Cleveland Music Group were prompt, professional and helpful. We loved being able to (virtually) “meet” all of the DJ options before selecting one, in order to determine each person’s personality and style. Eric made everything about the music at our wedding easy. We had an extensive “DO NOT PLAY” list, and every one of our “bans” was respected during the wedding without issue. On the flip side, we had a fairly vague (but pointed) idea about the different styles of music that we actually wanted played during the different portions of our Reception. Yet, armed with only our relatively vague input, Eric crafted the perfect playlist for each portion of the evening, ranging from instrumental acoustic covers of popular songs, alternative music, some oldies, upbeat dance songs, and Top 40s.

  • Cleveland Music Group was great to work with! Everyone on their staff is so friendly. We hired DJ Chris Wallace for our wedding. He did a great job throughout our entire wedding day and leading up to the event. My now husband and I have opposite work schedules that can be hard to work around, but Chris made it work and met with us late one evening to review our wedding day details and song expectations. On the day of the wedding he kept us well organized as well as all the events of the day flowing nicely. Our dance floor was filled from the moment music played and continued until the very end of the night. All of my family and friends kept commenting on how they loved his music selection too. It was such a fun day for everyone thanks to him. I highly recommend Chris!

    Hi Carli! Thanks for your amazing review of our services. I'll make sure to pass along your kind words to DJ Chris Wallace as well. Best Wishes & Congrats!

  • My husband and I are so happy to have chosen the Cleveland Music Group as our DJ for our wedding night. We worked with DJ Scott E. Jones and he was so easy to work with. He was flexible when changes need to be made last minute and mingled with our friends and family so well as if he has known us forever. His assistant, Kyle, was so nice and relayed anything we needed that night to Scott and vice versa. Our family and friends LOVE to dance and they kept us dancing all night! If we weren’t dancing on the dance floor, we were dancing back by the cupcake table! It was truly a great experience!

    Thanks for your killer review Cailin. Kyle and I had so much fun with you and your families. Cheers to you and Chris. We wish you all the best! - Scott

  • CLE Music Group as an organization is terrific, we really enjoyed working with them from start to finish. But more importantly, we ended up booking The Orchestra through them and they were AMAZING! We paid a little extra to have them play nonstop from first dances after dinner to the end of the night, worth every penny. Our dance floor was PACKED nonstop all night long. They're ability to read the room and play accordingly was amazing. It seemed like every guest came up to us to tell us this was the best band they had ever heard. We could not be happier with the decision we made, they were a huge part of what made our night perfect!

    Anthony, Thanks for your kind words! You just made my day! I'll share your experience and thoughts with the band leader (Dwayne). Best Wishes & Congrats!

  • Erin Rossi of the Element (and Tony Howard and Scott Jones of CMG) was so incredible to work with throughout wedding planning as well as on wedding day. Erin quickly answered my every email or call and was always a pleasure to talk to. Not only is Erin EXTREMELY talented, she is an amazing business person, emcee, and overall human being. She was so on top of everything. I felt so much less stressed knowing Erin was helping to lead the way on wedding day. I was very worried about the sound in the Old Courthouse, as I was warned it was bad due to it being a cavernous and marble-filled venue, but I thought the sound was amazing! It was way better than expected at the Courthouse, especially for the speeches. Thank you SO much. The wedding was an absolute blast thanks to The Element and CMG! And the lighting CMG set up also looked great!

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your kind words. From all of us at CLE Music Group, we were honored to work with you! Best Wishes & Congrats!
