The Best DJ and Live Music Vendor in the PNW!

If you are planning your wedding and want a great DJ or live music, look no further! John Ross and his team are simply the best. From start to finish, John and his team were extremely professional, prompt in responses, and made us feel valued. They listened when we explained the vision we had for our wedding day and made it come to life even better than my husband or I could have imagined. Thank you John, Jenny and the rest of the team for making us feel so special during our wedding and making it a day we will never forget!

The best DJ!

We are so glad we chose John Ross Music for our wedding DJ. From the beginning, communication was great. Jenny made sure to keep us informed of important dates or things we needed to get done before the wedding and she was very easy to communicate with! We chose Chaz for our DJ and are SO glad we did!! Chaz was awesome! People were asking us all night where we got our DJ and even though we had a small wedding, he kept everyone on the dance floor. Everyone had a great time dancing. Chaz was also great in terms of meeting before the wedding, communication, etc. Highly recommend Chaz and John Ross Music, we had a great experience!

Andrew Serino @ John Ross 10/10

Andrew made the full day so seamless - from the ceremony mics and music, to the speeches, and dancefloor - and went above and beyond by letting my cousins even use his guitar to perform a song. The vibe and environment were exactly what we asked for the and full planning / prep process was super easy. Would recommend!
