    Exactly what we were looking for!

    Our main goal for wedding music was to have a mix of live/acoustic and DJ. Bo with John Ross Music 100% delivered. He was delightful to work with and quick to respond to all our questions and concerns! He totally nailed our style of music and was extremely accommodating on our wedding day. Bo was early, prepared, and provided high quality service. I highly recommend Bo and John Ross Music. They do it all and they do it well for a fair price. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

    Michael Blake came highly recommended and for obvious reason!

    We heard about John Ross Productions and specifically Michael Blake from another vendor we interviewed and we are so glad we hired him for our big day. The dance party was the most important piece to me (after getting married, of course) and he executed our hopes perfectly. Bonus: he is a guitarist so we were able to have him do our ceremony music as well. He is so kind, the company is so professional and great to communicate with, and he brought our dream to life!

    So Professional & Talented!

    John Ross and his team are amazing to work with. They are all so talented and professional. We chose to have Kelly DJ and play live music at our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier. Everyone was so professional, and Kelly is incredibly talented. So happy to have them as a part of our special day!

    Amazing Experience with Michael

    Michael and the team from John Ross Productions were so easy to work with. They stayed in touch throughout the whole process, giving us all of the details we needed and answering any questions we had. Michael played live music at the ceremony and cocktail hour (including one song we asked him to learn) and then also was the DJ during dinner and the reception. He worked with my family to put together a special surprise dance and did a great job with additions to our playlist. He's so talented! I can't recommend John Ross Productions enough!

    Best Choice for Music!

    We hired John Ross for our wedding and we are so happy with our choice! John played our ceremony music and was flexible in what he could play as it was a shortened Catholic ceremony. He then played in a three-piece band for our reception, sang our first dance song and dj'd the dancing part of our reception. John's easygoing nature and passion for music made it easy to work with him and we had no worries about music on our wedding day. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the music!

    fGreat DJ & Musician

    We went with John Ross for our wedding on 8/24. Robby was our DJ & musician and he was absolutely amazing! Everyone thought he did a great job during the ceremony and when he performed the song for our first dance. I am so happy we found him through John Ross! He also did a great job as a DJ. Our friends were dancing the whole time and said they had a ton of fun. I highly recommend choosing John Ross Music as your DJ and try and get Robby if he is still available for your wedding date!

    We loved Dillon!

    We decided to use John Ross Music after a glowing recommendation from a friend and I’m so glad that we did! They were so professional and made it so easy on us on the big day. Affordable and they included everything that we needed so we didn’t have to worry about adding extra microphones or speakers, etc. There was an easy to use web portal to choose music/make payments and Jenny, the office admin was a great communicator and always kept us in the loop! We chose Dillon as our DJ after listening to his music on their website and he was incredible! He played acoustic music for our ceremony and his voice is so beautiful- it really made our ceremony so special! He learned a special song to accompany my family singing. He is also an amazing DJ- the dance floor was packed the entire night! I would 100% recommend Dillon and John Ross Music to anyone getting married!

    Best DJ ever

    John Ross of John Ross Music is the best wedding DJ ever. John and his office staff were so amazing to work with every step of the wedding planning process and certainly went above and beyond in many ways. Hands down one of our favorite vendors that we worked with. From providing great music selection resources to sitting down with us before our wedding to talk through our “vibe” and flow of our reception---it was such a pleasant experience to work with John who is friendly, committed and super easy to talk to. Thank you John Ross Music!

    Pleasure to work with

    I cannot wait for them to DJ my wedding in July. They have been great to work with, and helpful with any questions or requests I have had.

    Above and Beyond

    I absolutely loved working with John Ross Music! I specifically got to work with John himself. I would go back and do it all over if I could. He really is unbelievable. His thought and care he puts into every detail of the music choice and even the layout of the day is amazing. He spends time with you helping you narrow down exactly what you want. That isn’t even the best part. He sings beautifully! He sang live during our ceremony, happy hour and our first dance! It was so perfect. I was truly grateful with how amazing he made our day.

    Custom, adventurous, communicative-- Kelly Bechtel rocked!

    We asked guitarist Kelly Bechtel to head up in a snowcat to Silcox Hut on a blizzardy day-- he was so up for adventure, set up his gear in a tight space and timeframe, and then crushed the 4 custom songs we asked him to learn! He and John Ross were so responsive, communicative, clear. We got awesome feedback and really had the perfect touch to our day. Don't hesitate to invest in John Ross! They even provided a full audio recording of all the songs and ceremony

    John Ross was incredible!

    We are so glad we booked John Ross music for our wedding. They have a team of musicians, but we actually had John Ross play for us at the wedding. He is very skilled and we loved his acoustic performances for the opening procession, during dinner, and for our first dances. We had more of a typical wedding dance party and John totally crushed that as well. He was easy to work with and had great friendly energy. We would definitely recommend John Ross Music to help make your wedding day perfect!

    Beautiful live ceremony music and reception d.j.

    We hire Michael Blake from John Ross Productions. Michael was so easy to work with. He preformed beautiful live music at the ceremony which was outdoors and was responsive to guests special requests during the reception; indoors. We loved having one person do live music and dj.

    Our wedding coordinators recommended John Ross Musicians and DJ. They were a great choice! We had Kelly as our musician/DJ. Live music as guests arrived and during the cocktail hour was a perfect touch of class. Great selections by Kelly for background music during dinner. Kelly was a wonderful emcee for all the special moments: bride and groom entrance, toast announcements, cake cutting, first dances, bouquet and garter toss...And then the DANCE PARTY! It was Epic! Everyone had a fabulous time- thanks to a well done play list!

    John Ross music was absolutely fantastic! From the initial inquiry to the final event, we felt like they really got to know us an how we wanted our day to look and feel. Andrew (whom we and guest alike, LOVED) played personal pieces of music live throughout our ceremony. They really know how to be the master of ceremony and engaged with the crowd to get everyone ready on the dance floor! For brides and grooms looking for a personalized and energetic entertainment, you will not be disappointed!

    We were so pleased with John Ross music and our DJ, Michael. They were recommended as the in-house DJ at our venue and from the first contact we knew we were dealing with professionals. They were flexible (we had a friend play us down the aisle and a bagpiper play our recessional but used their DJ to fill in before and after) and were able to incorporate recommended songs during dinner we had from years of exchanging playlists. It made our night all the more meaningful!

    Michael was pleasant, professional, and able to read our crowd well. We appreciated having an MC to keep things flowing. I happened to meet John during set up. Based on those two and a phone call with Jenny in their front office, we can tell this group enjoys their work. Highly recommend!

    Thank you John Ross Music and Michael Blake!!!! Highly, highly recommend working with John Ross Music! Leading up to the wedding the team was easy to communicate with and gave recommendations for how to make the wedding flow. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how lovely the music was! Michael Blake played a live acoustic set during the pre-lude. We added on a cello for our ceremony (highly recommend). Then, Michael Blake played a live acoustic set during cocktail hour, DJ and MC service for the rest of the night. I loved working with John Ross because they knew exactly what they were doing! Thank you for making our wedding so much fun!!!

    This is our second family wedding and John Ross is so exceptional in every way. Words can’t describe how wonderful the day was with his accompanying our soloist, fine voice, guitar and great DJ all rolled into one. You will be very smart to book this wonderful and flexible performer.

    Wonderful DJ! John was the DJ for our wedding in July, and he was a perfect choice. His office kept in contact with us reguarly from our first inquiry until the event. My husband was in charge o music, he communicated with John both online and at an in person meeting a month or so before the event and was extremely happy (as was I) with the whole process. The online questionnaire was a great way for John to get an idea of what we wanted, and a great way for me and husband to get on the same page about music for the whole event. John and Mike (from the Elysian Ballroom) worked well together, meaning we didn’t have to worry about coordinating DJ and venue at all. I loved when my guests came to me and asked who my DJ was because the music was so perfect at every stage of the wedding. I would happily recommend John Ross DJs to anyone.

    If you want a great party and your guests to dance all night book John Ross Music and Production! Our Dj was Michael Blake and he really factored in everything we wanted! Our guests had so much fun, and everybody loved our dinner time music. The lighting during the reception was really fun and I had several people ask me if we used a separate rental service for it. After the wedding they even sent me the recording of all the audio from that day! I would recommend them to any family or friend’s needing a DJ!

    John Ross DJ and Productions: We couldn’t be happier with John Ross DJ for our wedding in July! We had Andrew Serino as our DJ and live music singer and he was simply AMAZING. From our first meeting the whole team was on our side and wanted to make our day as special as they could. Andrew Serino knew our venue well, so setup/take down were a breeze. In terms of music, Andrew had great knowledge of setlists, played a wide variety of live music and kept the day flowing with announcements! We would highly recommend John Ross DJ and productions for any future wedding! Taylor

    Organized, Professional, Talented Musicians

    We had a great experiencing working with John Ross Music for our wedding. They are organized. Their online portal made everything so easy to track and update. They walked us through the process for selecting our music and the flow for our event so that it felt like we hardly did any work at all.

    Andrew Serino is a fantastic musician, DJ, and emcee. He even learned a new song to play for our recessional with only a month's notice. And he did an excellent job of managing song requests and making last-minute adjustments as things changed during the day itself.

    I would highly recommend John Ross Music!

    I am so, so happy we worked with John for DJ services for our wedding! First, the entire planning process was a pleasure. How often does the groom say that a meeting with a vendor was "fun"? We had a blast picking out songs and setting the tone for our wedding with John. On the wedding day itself he performed beautifully, with live music for our ceremony and cocktail hour and top-notch DJ services for our dinner and reception. I would recommend John Ross music to absolutely anyone who wants an experienced, good-natured, professional person/team in charge of creating the atmosphere at your wedding-- a very important job that John knocked out of the park!

    We are so thankful we chose John Ross Music and Production for our wedding. Michael did an amazing job. All of our guests complemented his live music as well as song choices for the dance floor.
    As most people would agree, the wedding day is quite a blur. John Ross sent us a recording of our vows and toasts shortly after our wedding. We were not expecting this and it was a wonderful surprise. Thank you for letting us relive those moments. So much of the blur was cleared upon hearing those recordings.
    We highly recommend John Ross and Productions as well as Michael Blake. You guys are wonderful to work with!

    John Ross music was amazing to work with for our wedding! They took the time to get to know us and understand our vision for our wedding day. We had Andrew as our DJ and he was awesome!
