Erin L. · Getting married on 01/02/2022
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!!Sent on 02/28/2021

Danced the night away
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.Sent on 10/18/2020
Cleveland Music Group's reply: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.

CLE Music Group!
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. Eric was also great at controlling the flow of the evening without being overbearing. He cut in with ease, and then cut out when the pertinent information was conveyed. The dance floor was full the entire evening, up until the last song. We highly recommend DJ Eric and Cleveland Music Group!Sent on 01/24/2020
Cleveland Music Group's reply:Thanks for this amazing review! We can't thank you enough for using CLE Music Group & The Bearded DJ (Eric Smith). Best Wishes & Cheers to an amazing 2020! - Scott
Team of Cleveland Music Group
Scott started working at Jerry Bruno Productions in 2000, initially as one of three DJs and then in-office. With a lot of hard work and dedication, he helped grow the business to become one of Cleveland’s most respected live music providers for weddings and events.
In 2010, Scott took over full operations as President and transitioned it into Cleveland Music Group over the next four years. He has DJ'd thousands of weddings and events and is still the most requested of our many professional DJs.
Erin joined the staff in 2013 but has been a part of our talent roster since 1999. Formerly a vocalist for both TCB and Rick & the Cutting Edge, Erin’s entertainment experience combined with her background in sales and consulting make her the perfect fit for our clients.
After graduating from Ursuline College School of Nursing, Erin worked as a Registered Nurse for 5 years. She spent the next ten years in medical sales and consulting, all the while singing for Jerry Bruno Productions at weddings and corporate events.
Among her most recent music endeavors are the popular wedding band The Element and singing in an acoustic duo.
Erin’s passion for music has brought her countless opportunities, from singing the National Anthem for the Cavs, the jingle for the Mike Trivisonno Show – WTAM 1100, “We live in Ohio,” to being an active member of the Cleveland Blues Society and working with The Greater Cleveland Blues News magazine.
AKA The Bearded DJ - Eric joined the CLE Music Group sales office in 2017 and as a part of the talent roster in 2011 as a DJ. He spent two years as an apprentice to Scott Jones before becoming a lead DJ. His approach-ability, sense of humor, and knack for letting the music speak for itself along with heavy involvement in Cleveland's social media community (@thebeardeddj) all contributed to him becoming one of the industry's most requested wedding DJs.
Eric holds a Bachelor's degree in Business Management from Mercyhurst University. His relationship management background in the corporate and start-up worlds here in Cleveland have proven to translate very well into the events industry. He is also a realtor on Ohio's #1 real estate team! One thing is certain, Eric has dedicated his professional life to making his clients' lives happier and run as smoothly as possible no matter the situation and he is excited to be focusing that energy into weddings and events full time.
When he's not out DJing or in the office, he spends most of his time with his wife and their 3 kids at home or out and about enjoying all the awesome things to do in Cleveland. Aside from his family and music, he enjoys reality tv, podcasts, all the cheese and coffee, beard maintenance, and the Oxford comma.
Great staff and easy to work with! They really get the party going!
I saw this act in Pittsburgh while there on a photoboothlive. Wow! These guys are top drawer performers. If they took breaks, they were quick. The dance floor never stopped. Just over the top! You must catch their act.
Great entertainment options and they love what they do!
