I am a maître d' at a wedding venue and had the pleasure of working with Blue Root Entertainment. I got to worked with Cleveland Morris. He really knew how to get the crowd up and moving. From being in the business for so long I know that DJs make or break the reception and some times are mediocre, but not this guy. He was by far the best DJ I ever had the chance to work with. As a matter of fact the only one I went out of my way to give a review for. I hope he gets to DJ every wedding I attend from now own because I know it will be a good time. Hope to see you again soon at the Pen Ryn Estate also!Sent on 06/14/2016
Blue Root Entertainment's reply:Hello, this is Cleveland. I can't tell you how much this review means and how humbling it is. Thank you so much for going out of your way to leave such great feedback. It was a pleasure working with everyone there. The staff and the guests were a pleasure all night. I look forward to coming back to Pen Ryn soon!

The Most Important Part
After being at a wedding with Cleveland as DJ in 2016, we KNEW we had to have him for our future wedding! There was no other choice. Having the online portal was extremely helpful, he always answered any calls or emails with competency, and kept our party going! The one detail I wanted to be PERFECT with the ceremony was my entrance song. He was able to immediately put my mind at ease by splicing and looping the song to my requirements so that I would be walking down the aisle to the correct music cue. For that I am grateful! We'd do it all over again if we could!Sent on 08/21/2019

Dancing all night long
We happened to meet Cleveland while touring our wedding venue at the very beginning of our planning process. He was so friendly and easy to talk to, and it was clear that he’s passionate about music and entertainment! When checking out our venue’s website, we found out that he’s a preferred vendor. A great first impression with us and a lasting impression at a respected wedding venue made our choice very easy! Cleveland’s professional and prompt, especially with phone/email responses. During our in-person meeting to finalize our wedding day music, Cleveland made expert suggestions, helped us pick special songs, listened to and honored our requests for group introductions, song cuts, etc. What stood out to us was how well he understood our music tastes once we shared with him our cocktail/reception playlists. Leading up to the wedding, Cleveland checked in with us to help us finalize details and offer his support. As for our wedding day, we were truly BLOWN AWAY! He spoke with clarity and enthusiasm during all MCing portions in order to control the venue space so that the night’s activities transitioned smoothly. Our friends and family told us how much fun they had DANCING ALL NIGHT LONG because of the amazing DJing! Cleveland demonstrated quick-thinking when he cued up a sentimental song (by my all-time favorite band) mentioned in my dad’s speech. His perceptiveness created the best surprise! From dance favorites, to eclectic tracks, with a few slow dances precisely mixed in, Cleveland fed off the energy from the crowd to create a space for celebration and pure joy!Sent on 08/20/2019

The decision to use Blue Root Entertainment and Cleveland as our wedding DJ is one we absolutely did not regret! Cleveland displayed an excellent level of commitment and dedication to making our day special and was always available to discuss anything at any time! He was very professional in his set up, appearance, and interaction with our guests and went above and beyond to make sure all of our requests were met stress free. He had the dance floor packed all night and made sure everyone had an amazing time! 5/5 stars completely recommend worth every penny.Sent on 08/25/2018

One of the top pieces of advice we received during the wedding planning process was to make sure we found a good DJ. Not only is the DJ responsible for keeping the party going, but also for performing the role of MC – ensuring the day stays on schedule. We found the perfect DJ and MC in Cleveland Morris and Blue Root Entertainment. From day one Cleveland was so helpful in guiding us through the planning process (who knew picking songs could be so hard?), to ensuring the smallest details were covered during the ceremony and reception. We had a feeling we’d be in good hands with Blue Root even before reaching out, as we were referred by our wedding planner who used Cleveland’s services for her own wedding. (How can you get a higher endorsement than that?) The biggest testament to Cleveland’s work, was that everyone danced the night away and had a blast. Simply put, Cleveland Rocks!Sent on 01/02/2019
Blue Root Entertainment's reply:Nick, thank you so much for taking time to leave a review. We're so thankful you and Kristina chose us for your reception. It was an absolute pleasure working with you both. Best wishes in marriage and life. Looking forward to seeing you both at another great event very soon!

FLAWLESS delivery. We spoke with a lot of DJs before booking Blue Root, and we initially selected Cleveland simply because he seemed so professional and like an authentically nice guy that cared about making our night as special as possible for us (and not at all about stroking his own ego like a some of the DJs we spoke with).Sent on 09/16/2018
I'm happy to say the initial vibes we got from Cleveland held true through to end. Beyond that, he exceeded our expectations with:
- Ease of communications. He provided us with a questionnaire to help plan the night, and then we did a final call to talk through everything before the day of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, he showed up in a badass velvet suit and executed everything perfectly according to the plan without any input required from us.
- His level of organization and maturity. He's clearly done a lot of weddings, and he had a calming presence through the day that helped us stay relaxed. There are SO many things to potentially be concerned about on the day of your wedding, and it was huge to be able to know "at least we know Cleveland's got the DJ / emcee situation on lock-down"
- The quality of his equipment. The audio for both the ceremony and reception was perfect - vows and speeches came through crystal clear, and the party music got everybody moving! We had a few challenging music requests (some could only be pulled from Youtube videos), but they came through sounding great on his equipment. The uplighting he brought also looked fantastic.
Highly recommend working with Blue Root Entertainment!

Our decision to use Blue Root Entertainment was one of the best decisions. From the start, Cleveland was very easy to work with. He was very easy to communicate with, bounce ideas off of, and very enthusiast. He was very attentive to what we wanted and honored all of our requests. A big thing for Thomas and I is timely communication and Cleveland exceeded our expectations. We never had a doubt that he would deliver. He provided a Photo Booth and uplighting, both were big hits at our wedding. The wedding itself was amazing, Cleveland kept people on the dance floor at all times and guests even complimented us about him. We were so impressed with him and so happy in our decision to book Blue Root Entertainment. Weddings can be stressful but his attentiveness, attention to detail and communication made us not stressed at all about our choice in entertainment. Thank you for everything!! :)Sent on 08/11/2018

Emily · Married on 10/20/2017
Going with Blue Root Entertainment and Cleveland was one of the best wedding planning decisions my husband and I could have ever made! Cleveland is a friend of my husband's family that we had interacted with only once prior (well before) planning our wedding; at that point he left an everlasting impression on us and we knew when it came to planning our entertainment for the big day, that we had to book him. Cleveland is so incredibly easy to chat with, organized and such an expert at what he does. My biggest fear during wedding planning was that our dance floor would be bare during the reception and I stressed that heavily to him when we started discussing details. Cleveland assured me that he would be able to read the crowd and judge what songs to play and when. Boy, was he right! I loved that he jumped on the dance floor with us periodically through the night to get the crowd pumped for the next song, whether it was a throw back or a quick line dance. He listened to all our requests, as well as our guest's. I honestly felt like we were listening to a playlist that we had made ourselves and had playing at a dinner party! If you are looking for a DJ who has a keen eye for detail, is professional, and takes pride in all that he does, Cleveland is your guy! He is such a stand up guy who we will absolutely be recommending to friends and family for years to come!Sent on 12/02/2017

Cleveland and Blue Root is exactly who you need to provide the entertainment at your event. We booked Cleveland for our wedding in October 2017, and could not have been more impressed! From our first meeting, my now wife told me we weren't meeting another person, and she was right in her decision. Cleveland is very organized, extremely easy to speak with, and is great with communication. He always got right back to us always. We even had to make a major change twice for our wedding, and when asking Cleveland if the change was ok to make, he made it sound like it was no issue at all. And he followed through with the changes made. Down to even the smallest details, Cleveland came through! He is a great event DJ. When it came to announcing the Bridal Party and Groomsmen, or announcing anything at all, he hit it perfectly. When it was time for line dances and such, Cleveland grabbed the mic and jumped on the dance floor to give instructions. When it came time for dinner, he threw in the perfect dinner music, that was special to us, that we did not even think to ask for. It's small details that make the day even more special, and those small details were important to us, and obviously important to Cleveland as well. We are so glad we picked Blue Root Entertainment, and would pick them again and again. Thank you so much Cleveland!Sent on 11/28/2017

Cleveland came highly recommended from friends and family who had heard him DJ previous weddings and events. From our first meeting, he did not disappoint. He was knowledgeable, professional, and very personable. We knew we had to immediately book with Cleveland! He had a user friendly website to help us plan and organize our big day. The website was very helpful because Cleveland provided the music to our ceremony as well as our reception. This was a great feature for organized brides and grooms.Sent on 02/28/2017
We met Cleveland the month before our wedding to ensure all of our details were in place. He was easy to contact and very responsive. The day of our wedding, Cleveland arrived early to set up and add up-lighting to our reception room. The up-lighting transformed our reception space- we highly recommend adding the up-lighting package! We received so many compliments for his lighting!
Cleveland was able to create the perfect cocktail hour and dinner playlists based off our song requests. He really listened to us and made our night personal. Cleveland helped the timing of the evening and his announcements were perfect. The dance floor was packed because Cleveland played the perfect mix of oldies and new music. He noticed the guests dancing and was able to play what the crowd wanted to hear. You can tell Cleveland actually enjoys his job and doesn’t treat you like just another wedding-he was smiling and extremely pleasant all night! The pride he takes in his profession shines through. We highly recommend Cleveland to any bride and groom. He was the perfect choice for us from start to finish.

We booked Cleveland as our DJ for our wedding and were thrilled with the results. He is so easy-going, professional and nice. He was awesome from the ceremony music, his demeanor when announcing speeches/dances/cake cutting, taking requests and most importantly playing all the music we really wanted played. The mood was exactly how we wanted it to be and we received so many compliments from guests about the music and Cleveland himself being so helpful. Highly recommend.Sent on 09/03/2017

We saw Cleveland at a wedding in Connecticut two years ago. As soon as we got engaged, we had no doubt we wanted him at our wedding. He was responsive, professional, and made me (the bride) feel at ease! There was no need for many logistic conversations before: he clearly knows what he is doing. He provided us with a microphone for the ceremony as well. The music was exactly what we wanted. He did a great job including personal touches such as song shout outs that we had requested. He went from table to table to receive song requests as well. Our guests danced the entire time and of 130 guests, less than 10 left before the last song! Our guests were so impressed with him as well. Cannot recommend him more highly!Sent on 10/30/2016

Choosing Blue Root Entertainment was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Cleveland was a pleasure to work with. And he played music that all of our guest enjoyed dancing to. He is very knowledgeable and diverse in music genres, can read the crowd, understands the perfect flow of the event. The dance floor stayed packed. He was on point with the ceremony music.

Cleveland was absolutely AMAZING at our wedding! We met with him in person to review our questionnaire the week of the wedding and we could tell he was dedicated to making our day perfect. He was even sure to note small details like pronunciations of bridal party names. On our actual wedding day, we ended up running behind schedule during the evening and he was happy to stay an extra half hour to ensure we got as much dancing time as possible. He nailed the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing (all in different locations at our venue!). So glad we went with him for our big day and will certainly use him for any of our other DJ needs in the future.Sent on 10/12/2016

As we unfortunately found out at one of our close friends weddings, a DJ has the most influence on the wedding. The MC has to be able to read a room and sort of know what the audience wants to hear on the fly, while dealing with any hiccups or drunken requests along the way! When my wife and I were trying to decide on a DJ for our out of state wedding in Maryland, we weren't sure who to turn to. Thankfully, she ran into Cleveland at a David's Bridal promotion. Although he was not available to MC our wedding, he turned the reins over to Verdine Jennings, who has one of the smoothest tone voices we've ever heard. Prior to your wedding, wet got to sit down with Cleveland and Verdine and go over everything prior to any type of financial commitment. Once we committed with Blue Root Entertainment, they have an easy form available online that you can request any songs you have to hear, or to avoid, along with all of the important dances, intro music, etc. Verdine was easily one of the best MC's I've seen work a room like he did. He took the time to go from table to table, to introduce himself to the guests and figure out what the overall vibe of the room was like. Even though, some of the songs we listed on the "have to play list" weren't played, that was more of a function of Verdine understanding what people were looking for, and he absolutely nailed it. It was like having a friend DJ the wedding for you. Any special requests, like serenades or special compilations, he handled like a champ as well! Thank you Cleveland and Verdine for making our day complete and memories to last a lifetime!Sent on 01/08/2017

I had met Clevland the first day that I went wedding shopping. Just like my dress, he was a match made in heaven. Cleveland was very friendly and warm when we met him. He gave us his card and explained how he customizes the music to tailor us as a couple. We were able to customize and request all the songs that we wanted for each part of the wedding. Blue Root Entertainment was reasonably priced compared to many of the competing companies. Our package included Clevland as the dj, custom up lighting, microphones at the ceremony, and the sound system. I would definitely recommend Blue Root Entertainment, especially Clevland for all events!Sent on 08/15/2016

Cleveland is the best DJ. He provided outstanding service for our wedding reception. We had such a fun time and so did our guests. Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night. Some even said it was the best wedding reception. Cleveland was amazing with the music selection and timing and organization of the celebration. Also his announcements were great. We liked how Cleveland organized everyone for the bridal party entrance. He even made special announcements for special songs (i.e. Nana's song and wishing her happy birthday). She loved it! Cleveland even went out of his way to find me before he played my favorite song and let me know when important parts of the celebration were coming up. He was thoughtful and considerate the entire time. We will highly recommend him. He is passionate about what he does. Everything was perfect.Sent on 07/31/2016

Cleveland was a pleasure to work with and he recommended that Gil would be a good fit for our wedding.

Gil would stay in touch with us via phone, text and email and was always responsive. He is unbelievable and my friends and family Kept asking where I got this guy from.

I was really nervous about having a DJ not only for our reception, but also our ceremony. I'd heard many horror stories and deep down I wanted a live band, but it just wasn't in our budget. Well, our wedding day came and went and WOW-I would pick Cleveland over a live band any day! He is one heck of a DJ!!! He is extremely professional and skilled at his craft. He's very organized and great at reading what the crowd and bride and groom want to hear. He also really understands the flow of weddings which my husband and I didn't even realize how important that was until that day. Plus, he just a nice guy! He played music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and it was the best decision we ever made hiring Blue Root Entertainment.

Cleveland was our wedding DJ and we couldn't have been happier! He provided music during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception, and lighting for our venue. We found his prices to be extremely reasonable when compared to most wedding DJ's. His lighting prices were a fraction of what a lighting company wanted to charge us and the lights were exactly the same. Our guests were very impressed that he went around to each table during the first course to ask for song requests. He also took the time to practice each person's name who was being announced and fulfilled each of our requests. Our dance floor was packed all night!!! Overall, Cleveland was professional, prompt and really listened to what we wanted. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone!Sent on 04/22/2016

Cleveland and Blue Root Entertainment were great! He made sure to check in early the week of the wedding and thought of all sorts of questions I hadn't even considered, such as microphone for ceremony (even though he was only booked for reception), etc. He was really professional and made sure everything ran smoothly, and he also took the time to get music requests throughout the dinner (I actually saw him going table to table!) His music choices throughout the night were perfect for the crowd, and he had everyone up and dancing the whole night! He also was great with details and helped plan in advance how to speed up some of our activities (toasts, cake cutting, announcements) so we'd have more time for dancing!
