    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.

    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!

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.

Aside from his family and music, he enjoys reality tv, podcasts, all the cheese and coffee, beard maintenance, and the Oxford comma.
