  • Our wedding coordinators recommended John Ross Musicians and DJ. They were a great choice! We had Kelly as our musician/DJ. Live music as guests arrived and during the cocktail hour was a perfect touch of class. Great selections by Kelly for background music during dinner. Kelly was a wonderful emcee for all the special moments: bride and groom entrance, toast announcements, cake cutting, first dances, bouquet and garter toss...And then the DANCE PARTY! It was Epic! Everyone had a fabulous time- thanks to a well done play list!

  • John Ross music was absolutely fantastic! From the initial inquiry to the final event, we felt like they really got to know us an how we wanted our day to look and feel. Andrew (whom we and guest alike, LOVED) played personal pieces of music live throughout our ceremony. They really know how to be the master of ceremony and engaged with the crowd to get everyone ready on the dance floor! For brides and grooms looking for a personalized and energetic entertainment, you will not be disappointed!

  • We were so pleased with John Ross music and our DJ, Michael. They were recommended as the in-house DJ at our venue and from the first contact we knew we were dealing with professionals. They were flexible (we had a friend play us down the aisle and a bagpiper play our recessional but used their DJ to fill in before and after) and were able to incorporate recommended songs during dinner we had from years of exchanging playlists. It made our night all the more meaningful! Michael was pleasant, professional, and able to read our crowd well. We appreciated having an MC to keep things flowing. I happened to meet John during set up. Based on those two and a phone call with Jenny in their front office, we can tell this group enjoys their work. Highly recommend!

  • Thank you John Ross Music and Michael Blake!!!! Highly, highly recommend working with John Ross Music! Leading up to the wedding the team was easy to communicate with and gave recommendations for how to make the wedding flow. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how lovely the music was! Michael Blake played a live acoustic set during the pre-lude. We added on a cello for our ceremony (highly recommend). Then, Michael Blake played a live acoustic set during cocktail hour, DJ and MC service for the rest of the night. I loved working with John Ross because they knew exactly what they were doing! Thank you for making our wedding so much fun!!!

  • This is our second family wedding and John Ross is so exceptional in every way. Words can’t describe how wonderful the day was with his accompanying our soloist, fine voice, guitar and great DJ all rolled into one. You will be very smart to book this wonderful and flexible performer.

  • If you want a great party and your guests to dance all night book John Ross Music and Production! Our Dj was Michael Blake and he really factored in everything we wanted! Our guests had so much fun, and everybody loved our dinner time music. The lighting during the reception was really fun and I had several people ask me if we used a separate rental service for it. After the wedding they even sent me the recording of all the audio from that day! I would recommend them to any family or friend’s needing a DJ!

  • Wonderful DJ! John was the DJ for our wedding in July, and he was a perfect choice. His office kept in contact with us reguarly from our first inquiry until the event. My husband was in charge o music, he communicated with John both online and at an in person meeting a month or so before the event and was extremely happy (as was I) with the whole process. The online questionnaire was a great way for John to get an idea of what we wanted, and a great way for me and husband to get on the same page about music for the whole event. John and Mike (from the Elysian Ballroom) worked well together, meaning we didn’t have to worry about coordinating DJ and venue at all. I loved when my guests came to me and asked who my DJ was because the music was so perfect at every stage of the wedding. I would happily recommend John Ross DJs to anyone.

  • John Ross DJ and Productions: We couldn’t be happier with John Ross DJ for our wedding in July! We had Andrew Serino as our DJ and live music singer and he was simply AMAZING. From our first meeting the whole team was on our side and wanted to make our day as special as they could. Andrew Serino knew our venue well, so setup/take down were a breeze. In terms of music, Andrew had great knowledge of setlists, played a wide variety of live music and kept the day flowing with announcements! We would highly recommend John Ross DJ and productions for any future wedding! Taylor

  • We had a great experiencing working with John Ross Music for our wedding. They are organized. Their online portal made everything so easy to track and update. They walked us through the process for selecting our music and the flow for our event so that it felt like we hardly did any work at all. Andrew Serino is a fantastic musician, DJ, and emcee. He even learned a new song to play for our recessional with only a month's notice. And he did an excellent job of managing song requests and making last-minute adjustments as things changed during the day itself. I would highly recommend John Ross Music!

  • We are so thankful we chose John Ross Music and Production for our wedding. Michael did an amazing job. All of our guests complemented his live music as well as song choices for the dance floor. As most people would agree, the wedding day is quite a blur. John Ross sent us a recording of our vows and toasts shortly after our wedding. We were not expecting this and it was a wonderful surprise. Thank you for letting us relive those moments. So much of the blur was cleared upon hearing those recordings. We highly recommend John Ross and Productions as well as Michael Blake. You guys are wonderful to work with!

  • I am so, so happy we worked with John for DJ services for our wedding! First, the entire planning process was a pleasure. How often does the groom say that a meeting with a vendor was "fun"? We had a blast picking out songs and setting the tone for our wedding with John. On the wedding day itself he performed beautifully, with live music for our ceremony and cocktail hour and top-notch DJ services for our dinner and reception. I would recommend John Ross music to absolutely anyone who wants an experienced, good-natured, professional person/team in charge of creating the atmosphere at your wedding-- a very important job that John knocked out of the park!

  • John Ross music was amazing to work with for our wedding! They took the time to get to know us and understand our vision for our wedding day. We had Andrew as our DJ and he was awesome! He sang a couple of songs live for us! John Ross music made our ceremony and reception so special! I highly recommend using them for your special day!

  • We LOVED working with John Ross Productions!! We had Andrew as our musician, and words can't express how much we loved him and how talented he is. John himself was also very amazing, he and Andrew both were at every meeting we had. Their professionalism and attentiveness was amazing. They are also very responsive and open to any fun ideas!! Our guests are still raving about how much they loved the mix of live music and DJ'ing. The mix of live music when we walked down the aisle really added a special touch to the ceremony, and our first dance live was the most beautiful version. I can't say enough about them and the quality work, if you are looking for that step above all the other DJ's in town, look no further. Highly, highly recommend working with John Ross!!

  • John was great! I enjoyed his online questionnaire and it really helped us get the feel of the music we wanted while still leaving room for surprises. John is also basically like a second wedding coordinator on the day-of, helping run things smoothly, telling us (the bride and groom) whee to go, as well as helping herd the large amount of guests where they need to be any given time. Super easy to contact and work with. Highly recommend!

  • We worked with the John Ross company and Kelly Bechtell as our DJ for our big day one month ago. Firstly, we just want to say - wow, what talented individuals! These guys go far and beyond! In additional to curating a playlist and announcement program suited to our big day, each of them also sings and plays an instrument - making our day even more special, personalized, and intimate. From the get-go, my husband and I had a particular song in mind that we really wanted to be played acoustically on guitar during our ceremony. Kelly did a phenomenal job of learning the song and seamlessly tied it into our other ceremony music. I was literally in tears walking down the aisle as I was not only marrying my best friend, but also had the perfect soundtrack playing in the background. Overall, we were impressed with how professionally and organized the pre-wedding meetings were. We were even more amazed the day of. Every song Kelly played had the crowd saying "that's my song!" It was an incr... Read more
