  • Jon Harris is great to work with! He has provided bands for many of the weddings at our venue and they always make the weddings more fun! We enjoy their music so much that we hired them to play for our Old Days Festival and everyone had a fantastic time!

  • Jon was fantastic! From our initial contract through our wedding event, Jon was a pleasure to work with. He understood our needs and, at the event, did a fantastic job reading the crowd to maintain energy and engagement. Our dance floor was always full, and people had a great time. I highly recommend!

  • JSH Music Productions' Quintet performed for our event and were beyond outstanding! They performed their sets at just the right volume-you could carry on a conversation and enjoy the music without a problem. The Quintet had a wonderful energy , were enthusiastic and we would definitely use them again.

  • Jon is simply world-class when it comes to executing music and audio for an event. Our wedding in Solvang was at a winery with no in-house equipment, so we needed two separate sound systems and a live jazz trio, which Jon effortlessly executed. From providing all of the needed equipment, to helping to scout the venue for ideal setup locations, to helping to curate the music and hire exceptional musicians from LA for the wedding - Jon exceeded our every expectation. He will work with you on everything from live solo guitar players to jazz trios to full top-40 or country groups, or simply a DJ - whatever you can imagine, Jon can make it easy. As a musician myself, I was somewhat neurotic about making the music aspect of our wedding perfect. Jon not only worked with us on our wishes and accommodated each request with respect, he personally ran the sound equipment, played drums, built playlists and DJ'd, but also coordinated everything so it ran smoothly and blended in with the vibe of...

  • Jon was amazing from the first call to book him til the end of the wedding! He will be the first call we make when my next daughter gets married! He had everyone dancing from the beginning til the end! It was a magical wedding and one week later our friends are still texting “that was the best wedding ever” and we attribute it is a large part to the great music! Thank you Jon! See you at the next wedding!

  • Jon Harris was fantastic! He understood our desires right away and went beyond the call of duty to make sure we got what we were dreaming of. He brought a GREAT level of energy. The band made the reception totally fun. They read the crowd and knew when and how to get things going! We could NOT have been happier. We had so many guests compliment the band afterward. They were completely professional. I sent Jon a song list and some spotify playlists and I never thought about it again. He handled fade-ins and outs and the ceremony sound and the breaks - all without me worrying about a thing. They even worked with my dad the day of the wedding to do a surprise toast that incorporated different songs as he spoke. I can't say enough good things. I highly recommend.

  • Jon and the Stir Father musicians were amazing! Picking the songs for our sets of music was one of my favorite wedding tasks. As a bride I did not have to worry about them day of at all, they were completely professional with their sound check and set up, and all communications. Plus they ROCKED and had everyone on the dance floor. I would definitely hire them again and recommend them to anyone!

  • We interviewed 10+ DJ and music vendors before John came to our rescue. Do you know how hard it is to find a DJ that can get every guest dancing from babies to grandparents from a variety of cultures? It’s like finding a needle in a haystack. John is your needle in the haystack. John will go out of his way to make your wedding the event of the year. His energy and charisma is unbeatable, and he’ll tailor your music needs to exactly what you’re looking for and make added suggestions on top. Some DJ’s just want to play the type of music they are comfortable with vs. what you need. We were a multicultural French American wedding with unique tastes and he made our playlist exactly right for our special day. John found us amazing live musicians to also play what we wanted, and then busted out his DJ skills in the late evening. He even suggested adding an electric drum set set to his sound system and busted out rythm in conjunction to the tracks. I didn’t even know this was poss... Read more

  • We hired the three piece jazz band for a 50th wedding anniversary. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish! The entire team was very professional, polite and amazing follow up from the moment we reached out to inquire about their services. I would have no hesitation hiring them again for any future event and can't say enough how happy we were with JSH! They are a class act!

  • Jon has done the Fess Parker Company holiday parties for a few years and brings his A-game to each and every one. Our employees enjoy his music selections and have a great time on the dance floor. Jon always checks for any special requests we may have, but truly we leave it all up to him and he has never let us down. Jon will always play anything an employee asks for at the party and watching Jon, he puts his all into his job and is very well liked. I can't imagine having our annual event without JSH Music.

  • Using Jon and his group was the best investment I made. This was our first time hiring live entertainment for an event and I was very apprehensive. Jon took care of everything. His band, Stir Father, was great and he arranged for other entertainment as well. Our party went off without a hitch and was our best ever. Will definitely hire them again and refer.

  • We got married on September 23, 2017 in Solvang at K'Syrah. Jon provided music for our Friday evening cocktail party as well as the Saturday wedding event. Jon was so great to work with, from the initial email and phone discussion and then an in-person meeting. Based on our desires, he proposed several options to accommodate our wants and budget. Once we agreed on both, and I continued to work on the details of both Friday night and Saturday nights events, he was responsive to my questions and very helpful in making sure the flow of the music was to perfection. I told him my idea of a special song I wanted to walk down the aisle and he said he would have his vocalist learn the song and do a version that worked with our theme. I asked him to do two additional special songs throughout the evening, in which he was more than happy to have his band accommodate (all surprises to my fiancé). My fiancé had asked him to surprise me with an instrumental serenade based on one of my favo... Read more

  • Jon's band The Free Radicals made our wedding a non stop dance party! I am so so glad that we decided to spend more and get a band, it was worth every penny. Not only was the band fantastic, playing hits that everyone at the wedding could rock out to, Jon was also super easy to work with leading up to the wedding. From our first conversation, we immediately could tell that he would be trustworthy and reliable, and we were not disappointed. Besides the band learning a new song for our first dance (and a couple extra favorites), Jon also helped us select songs for our ceremony music which was really clutch as we were getting down to the wire with no strong ideas. So other than being a great band manager and drummer, he was awesome at consulting with us. He even took time out to meet with us in person during one of our pre-wedding planning trips. In addition to the band, Jon also provided a solo guitarist to play the ceremony music and cocktail hour, and Erich was great! Walking d... Read more

    Thanks Noa and Andy! From all of us in the band, and crew, we really enjoyed working with you guys! Thanks so much, ~JON

  • Jon Harris and his band Stirfather were fantastic. Great vocals and overall sound. They helped keep our wedding reception partying rocking until the very end. I would definitely recommend them to others.
