  • John Ross Music and Production is an amazing company! We used Andrew as our DJ and we did not regret on bit of it. The ceremony music transitions were flawless and the reception was amazing as well. These guys are top notch and they know just how to make your day everything you wanted it to be and then some.

  • I would recommend John Ross for any event, especially a wedding. He was so helpful throughout the entire planning process (i.e. had detailed forms for music preference, ideas for songs, etc.) and was awesome on the day of. We were running behind schedule at one point and he came up and asked if he could pick and choose from our must-play list based on the vibe of the reception. I LOVED this because it took all the pressure off of us. The music turned out fantastic. However, my favorite part might have the fact the played the guitar as I walked down the aisle. It felt very special and personalized. Lastly, John Ross provided lighting (pictures provided) that really elevated dinner and the reception at night. Highly, highly recommend!

  • Andrew was outstanding leading up, the day of, and even after our wedding. The music was flawless, everything exactly how we requested. Andrew's professional demeanor had many of our guests asking how they could book with him. We had truly an amazing experience using John Ross Music, and highly recommend Andrew Serino as your DJ!

  • Working with John Ross Music was an amazing experience! I wanted something a little different then just a d.j. but knew it didn't make sense to hire someone to just do live music for the ceremony with the size of our wedding. I came across John Ross Music and it was like a dream come true! We worked with Michael Blake who did an incredible job and was so flexible when plans changed a bit because of rain. I would highly recommend hiring them for your wedding, you won't be disappointed!

  • Here is the note I sent to our DJ, Bo Baskoro, a few days after my daughter's wedding that sums up our high level of satisfaction. Not only was Bo great to work with, John Ross and his staff were very professional and always available to us. I highly recommend them! Bo, Just wanted to thank you for all you did to make Morgan and Peter’s wedding a great success! From the beginning, Morgan kept saying how attentive you were, and great to work with in planning the music and sound for both the wedding and reception. With so many details to think about on the days leading up to the wedding, I really appreciated your contact and communication confirming details, the event timeline, and your arrival time at the resort. Once the ceremony started, you were the guiding force behind the scenes. The one who made everything happen without anyone noticing. You were in the right place at the right time, there with a microphone when necessary, and when not, making sure the officiant could be hea... Read more

  • Everyone at John Ross Music was so wonderful to work with. They were very professional, always responded to questions in a timely manner, and made the process very easy. Kelly was amazing and truly made our wedding day special. He has an incredible voice and the live music gave the ceremony and reception that special touch we were looking for. By answering a few questions, Kelly was able to create a playlist that went with the feel of the wedding and appealed to everyone. He was a great dj and had people on the dance floor for hours! Guests talked about how amazing he was for weeks after the wedding.

  • John Ross Music & Productions was recommended to us by our venue, and it was a great recommendation! John and his staff were very friendly & helpful from the get go. They gave us all their DJ and live music packages up front. Once we selected one and booked them, Jennifer in their office helped us manage our preferences and selections. It was really easy to communicate what songs we wanted when, and the vibe we were going for during our reception. Kelly was our DJ, and he did an awesome job! He played everything we asked for, and ran with the vibe we requested for our reception (90's dance party). Our guests loved it, and got SO into the music! There was always a crowd on the dance floor, and we couldn't have been more pleased with how organized, professional, and fun to work with everyone on the staff was. We would highly recommend John Ross Music & Productions to anyone.

  • We were incredibly happy that we chose John Ross to DJ our wedding. Not only is John possibly one of the sweetest people we have ever met, he is incredibly talented with music. This comes out with his beautiful singing voice, his beautiful guitar playing, and his amazing ear with music. We had John play an esoteric piece for our wedding that I guarantee he had never heard before, and he picked it up within minutes. He is incredibly organized with his questionnaire that you fill out ahead of time that helps him clarify how you want the wedding to go. He interacted very well with all of our wedding guests. Definitely one of our best decisions we made for our wedding was to work with John Ross!

  • Our entire experience with the John Ross Music team was excellent. Although all of our communication prior to our wedding ceremony and reception was done via email, our music/audio was flawless. We could not have asked for a better musician in Michael Blake - he can perform a wide variety of genres and excels with each one. We have continued to listen to his personal album, Let a Thousand Flowers Bloom, since our big day.

  • When booking the Elysian Ballroom for our September wedding, we were told that we could get a special rate from John Ross Studios for our DJ needs. They are the preferred company for our venue and keep equipment in-house at all times, which means their musicians are all familiar and comfortable with the venue, and reduces set-up time. We scheduled a meeting with Kevin Florence, and got so much more than we were hoping for! Kevin asked great questions about our taste in music, our guests, and the vibe we envisioned for our wedding. He got excited with us over certain song choices – like “Hoppipolla” by Sigur Ros for our bridal processional – and made us feel like we were chatting with a friend. The day of the wedding, Kevin was a friendly, welcoming presence behind the DJ booth. He blended into the background well during the ceremony, and gave wonderful direction to our guests for all the events of the reception. During dinner, Kevin played the perfect mix of happy, contented, r... Read more

  • I cannot say enough about my experience with John Ross Music. If you are within their service area, stop looking and book today. I recently got married on the Oregon Coast and planned everything from Columbus, Ohio. JRM makes everything so easy from the beginning. Their website it top notch, we were able to listen to all their musicians and luckily the one we fell in love with was available for our ceremony. He agreed to come out to the coast as well as learn our wedding song. Payments were easy and secure. The pre-wedding checklist was so thorough, we appreciated it this a lot because there were details that we hadn't even thought of but they had. Any question I had I received an answer right away. They really know how to treat their customers right! And for Kelly Bechtell our musician... I pray that we will find a way to see him again. Our wedding was very intimate, just our our parents and siblings. And Kelly really was part of the family that day. We first heard his songs onli... Read more

  • John Ross Music Music & Production is simply THE BEST. Their online tools that capture your music asks and tastes are great, because they make you think about every single component. They then schedule a meeting with you to review and talk through your day. We ended up with a 4-way conference call between me, my fiance in London, John Ross and Bo, our selected musician/DJ. Bo was away performing at a music festival and he took time out of his evening to step away before his performance to talk with us. Both John and Bo were so incredibly professional, kind and genuinely interested in making our wedding day as smooth as possible. I was so excited after this meeting because of their attention to detail, specific questions that they asked and sincere enthusiasm. We could tell that Bo wanted to do a great job for us. And he did, as our wedding day was INCREDIBLE! Your musician/DJ can make or break your wedding, and Bo absolutely nailed it. The live music during our ceremony and r... Read more

  • If you are looking for the best ceremony musician and DJ, John Ross is it! We chose John for our wedding because we wanted live music during our wedding ceremony and a DJ during our reception. John was so fun and easy to work with! His team is incredibly organized and make the process of choosing music one of the least stressful points of wedding planning. He was able to learn a new song to perform live for us for our first dance and it made the moment even more perfect! For the reception, he gives the option to choose as many songs as you want, or leave it open. We chose a few specific songs but wanted the reception to be a fun dance party. Our guests were blown away by John's selections and loved the live performances. We (and our friends) have been to a lot of weddings in the past few years and they all said John was the best DJ/performer they had seen and we couldn't agree more!
