This team was absolutely phenomenal for our wedding event! Erica the owner was wonderful in communicating since day 1. Erin the (harpist) was incredible and Sammy (the DJ) killed it with keeping the dance party atmosphere and was so attentive to myself and my husband personally the whole night. We are so grateful and incredibly happy with collective music solutions as our vendor of choice! I definitely recommend them!Sent on 10/17/2019
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Ahh, Tiffany! Thanks so much for this. I know I speak on behalf of Sammy and Erin when I say that we were honored to be a part of your wedding day. Thanks for trusting us to do what we did, and for being such a wonderful client. I wish you and Eric all the best in the coming years together. :). --Erica

One great source for all your wedding music needs!
Our wedding day was magical, and the music and A/V from Collective Music Solutions were a big part of that! It was so nice to go to one source for all musical components for my big day! We had a guitarist for the ceremony, 3-piece jazz band for cocktail hour/dinner, then Erica as our DJ for the dance party! My husband and I wanted everyone on the dance floor, and we got just that during our reception! I loved seeing everyone have a great time. My dad, who never dances, was even out on the dance floor. Dan and I didn't sit down once. We were just enjoying dancing the night away. Erica's energy was great as our DJ, and we loved how she mixed the music and incorporated our tastes to create a lively, fun atmosphere!Sent on 12/14/2019
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Hi Jill! :) You and Dan were an absolute pleasure to work with and y’all (and your amazing guests!) made my job So. Much. Fun! You two have many, many years of happiness and joy ahead of you... I wish you nothing but the very best! —Erica

They bring the party!
Erica Berg and Collective Music Solutions were AMAZING. They were flexible with our ideas and helped us out when we found out there was no speakers on the patio at our venue the night before the wedding. Her vocals are amazing and her willingness to work with you on your needs is even better. I highly recommend this band. You'll love their song choices, playlist, and willingness to align with your vision of the perfect day.Sent on 11/20/2019
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:I can’t say thank you enough for these kind words, Jenna! We had a great time at your wedding — you chose well with the four piece version of our band... it was PERFECT in the space :) We were honored to celebrate with you and I wish you and Marvin all the best! —Erica
Missy · Married on 07/04/2019
It was so much fun!! DJ Mykel out did himself! It was a wide age range and he was able to please everyone and get people to dance! People would try to go get a drink and then he put on another song and the people would come right back to sing and dance! So many great songs you couldn’t help singing to. Mykel was able to get people dancing I didn’t think they would! Made me so happy he pulled that off. No complaints except the venue of course had to close at some point and had to head home.Sent on 07/19/2019
Before the wedding they were extremely helpful and kind. Answered all questions always got back to us. Everyone working there made everything so easy for us! Not always easy to say that when planning a wedding but it was with them.
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Thank you so much, Lee. It was such a gift to get to know you (and your sweet daddy!), and we are happy that YOU were so happy with our services. Thanks again :) --Erica

The Best Vendor!!!
The Collective Music Solutions team was incredibly easy to work with from day one. Erica and Victor worked closely with us throughout the whole process. They offer an array of services and customize to each couple they work with. We have a vocalist and guitarist play for our outdoor ceremony, a trio jazz group for our cocktail hour on the patio, and a DJ and Emcee at our indoor reception. My nerves from the day were instantly calmed as soon as I heard the beautiful music around the corner at the ceremony as my guests arrived. The cocktail musicians were incredible and entertained guests while they mingled. Our Emcee and DJ blew it out of the water with the dinner playlist and dance music. We had 230 guests attend and I think almost all of them were on that dance floor having the best time ever! We got so many compliments from our family and friends about our musicians. They are extremely talented, personable, professional and so friendly. We loved working with them and couldn't have dreamed of a better element to our special day. They made this day absolutely perfect for us and our guests!Sent on 06/06/2019
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Christie! We can’t thank you enough for this kind review. Travis, the DJ, said the night was a blast and that your guests were the MOST fun! We loved working with you and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you and Bradley!
Kally · Married on 12/30/2018
Awesome dj and jazz trio!
Erica and her team had some picky clients on their hands- we had very specific music requests for our wedding, including wanting a jazz trio and having an extensive no-play list for our DJ. Sammy was our DJ and was AWESOME. He had all of our guests on the dance floor the entire night.Sent on 01/22/2019
Our jazz trio during dinner and cocktail hour was phenomenal and I truly could not have asked for better entertainment.
Thank you so much!!!
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Kally! Thank you so much for this kind review. We appreciate you and were honored that you chose us to be a part of your wedding day. You were a pleasure to get to know and Sammy also extends his thanks to you as well. I wish you guys ALL the best and I hope our paths cross again in the future :). --Erica

Excellent. She turned a nightmare into a daydream!
Erica is wonderful and very quick to respond to your needs. They have wonderful DJs who play any music you desire and have a great ability to read the room and get people involved. The musicians are also wonderful. At the last moment our original plans for ceremony music fell through and Erica helped us get an amazing violin and piano player who fit in flawlessly. They turned a nightmare into a dream. I highly recommend this company for all events and every wedding; they believe love is love.Sent on 10/24/2018
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words, Amanda! We appreciate it so much, and we wish you and Megan all the best :)

Amazing and talented group
COLLECTIVE MUSIC SOLUTIONS and ERICA BERG are AMAZING!!!!!!! You will not regret it!!Sent on 10/21/2018
My husband and I planned our wedding from abroad and were unable to vet a band ourselves. Our wedding planner and venue owner had just met and started working with Erica and the Collective Music Solutions Team and had raved about their talented team.
My husband and I were in Asheville for only 2 days over the holidays, and Erica and her father drove into Asheville from Greenville just to meet with us. We immediately knew we were making the right choice to go with their team. Collective was willing to work with us to make a tailored package. We added a guitarist for music during the ceremony. Which was really special - I cannot wait to see the wedding video by Fesiuk Films just so I can hear it again! I walked down the aisle to an unusual request - Guns and Roses - which they were able to accommodate no problem!
I cannot say enough about how talented this team is! We had a guitar and bass during cocktail hour and then the band kicked in for dinner, parent dances, and first hour of dancing. Everyone had an amazing time and I already had guests asking for the bands contact to spread the word! At one point one of the band members was even playing the FLUTE! Just INCREDIBLE! We ended the night will one hour DJ for classic singalong sessions and songs that had special meaning to our guests.
Honestly, wish we could relive the day over and over. Music really sets the tone for a wedding and Collective Music Solutions were ON POINT! Thank you again.
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Meg, thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. It means so much to us! We wish you and Mike a lifetime of happiness together! :)
Alanna · Married on 10/06/2018
A huge hit with our family!!
Erica is a complete joy to work with. She helped us pick a combination live band/DJ package that was perfect for the vibe we wanted to create. Chill folk music before dinner, then switching to a DJ after dinner to start a dance party! The band was PHENOMENAL. We got SO many compliments!! There are several musicians in my family and everyone loved the band. And my husband and I completely adored Jason (our DJ). We got on the same page before the wedding and he really listened to what we wanted. He was so great and flexible the night of the wedding too! (My sister/MOH requested one last song at the end of the night and it perfectly capped off everything!!) I highly, highly recommend working with Erica!!Sent on 12/24/2018
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Aww, Alanna! I can’t thank you enough for this. I so enjoyed the opportunity to know and work with you, and I’m absolutely thrilled that everything we worked so hard to plan was executed perfectly; it brings me so much joy! :) Jason thanks you for the kind words as well, by the way. Victor, Jason and I wish you and Patrick ALL the best and a happy Christmas, too! Love, Erica

Great Place to Book Multiple Music Choices
We were very pleased with both the cellist and the Dj we had with Erica Berg! When our day of planner sent our cellist home (without our approval and not per our day of plan-a whole different story), Erica remedied it immediately. They are professional, helpful and great musicians. It's a great one-stop shop to ease the stress of wedding planning. While our musical tastes differed dramatically from our DJ, he was so kind and helpful with the planning. He even met us before to talk things over! With the ceremony cellist, she let us choose our own and songs and even learned a new song for us. I was floored! She was amazing!Sent on 01/03/2019
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Rachel, you are so kind and I appreciate this review so much. I had a great time getting to know you and working with you, and Jason the DJ said the same thing! I wish you and Mark the absolute best, and I hope our paths cross again sometime :) --Erica

Thank you both so much for all your help surrounding my wedding day. From the sound set up during the ceremony to the phenomenal MC and DJ skills at the reception, we couldn't have been more pleased! Sammy- you really knew how to get the party started and keep the dance floor packed. Thanks for helping make our wedding the most fun day of our lives to date! I would highly recommend your services to anyone who asks! Thanks again a million times over!
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Sarah -- thank you so much for this! I had a great time with you and Chris, and I am so happy things were just as you wanted them to be. Cheers to you both on many years of happiness! --Sammy
Amanda · Married on 10/21/2017
Out of the millions of decisions I made while planning my wedding, booking the Erica Berg Collective was definitely one of the absolute BEST decisions. We had live music during the ceremony, dinner, and the reception and they were all INCREDIBLE. Erica was extremely quick to respond to my questions (I changed my mind about the first dance and parent dance songs many, many times) and was extremely nice while also giving me her honest opinion about what would flow best. We had a piano and stand up bass for the ceremony which was beautiful and also gave us the flexibility to pick fun, more modern songs while also giving them that classical sound for a wedding. We had the 5 piece band for the reception and there was not a single song that didn't have people on the dance floor. I love that the music they play was perfect for our grandparents and for our friends, it's music that literally generation loves!Sent on 11/10/2017
Thank you Erica, our wedding would not have been the same without you.
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Amanda... I'm late on responding to this, but I canNOT thank you enough for these kinds words. You have no idea how much they mean to me! I'm so glad you were happy and I hope you two are doing well :). --Erica
kaitlin · Married on 09/16/2017
We went with the DJ option for the Erica Berg Collective and had DJ Sammy Dewald. He was awesome - kept the energy up, listened to our requests and stuck to our wants and needs throughout the evening. We also included ceremony music, and I am glad that I did- it was nice to not have to worry about changing or timing music. They were incredibly professional and we even shared an Unexpected swing dance!Sent on 10/02/2017
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Kaitlin, thank you so much for the kinds words about us and especially about Sammy. It means so much to us! We wish you and Jason many happy years together. Cheers!
Susan · Married on 07/22/2017
Y'all there is not enough space here for me to convey how much I love the Erica Berg Collective and Erica herself! It doesn't take 2 minutes of being with her to already feel like you've made a new friend and when she sings...her talent is incredible!Sent on 08/07/2017
I knew from working with Erica on a previous event that she was the one for my reception music. I didn't interview or even look at anyone else. I knew Erica could provide the live band that I wanted and the DJ experience that my husband wanted. After my mother and I met with Erica and her sound engineer/father Victor, the choice was even more obvious. On your wedding day there are a million things happening and you want to slow time down and be able to process and enjoy every detail, but in the moment that is very hard. Erica MC'ed my entire reception and I didn't have to worry about a thing. She worked with the timeline my photographer created and made sure the evening flowed seamlessly. When I had trouble figuring out how to announce everyone Erica jumped right in and told me she had it handled and she sure did! Erica did two weddings in one day to accommodate being able to sing at my wedding. That is dedication! The way she went above and beyond and always kept the party rocking and my guests on the dance floor all night long was exactly what I wanted. Erica respected my musical requests and my more-conservative mother not wanting the reception to turn into a club feel. When I texted Erica on the wedding day making a change to the order certain things were happening that evening Erica didn't even bat an eye, she just rolled with it and made it happen. Clearly I could go on and on, but she is a joy to work with and will do whatever takes to give you a wedding day you'll remember. You will not regret booking Erica for your event!
The Erica Berg Collective's reply:Ahh, thank you Susan! I loved working with you and was thrilled to be a part of your wedding day. Thanks for choosing us :)
Landri · Married on 12/17/2016
I cannot say enough fantastic things about Erica! We hired Erica to DJ our December 2016 wedding, and I would 110% refer her to anybody I know who is planning an event. In fact, our experience was so great that I've already rebooked her for several work-related events that I am currently co-planning!Sent on 01/11/2017
From the very beginning, Erica was extremely attentive to every detail so she knew exactly what we wanted for our reception. Through a series of phone calls, Google docs/surveys, emails, and even a face-to-face meeting, Erica gathered and organized all of the reception details-- down to the timeline of events (one of her strong points, in my opinion), the playlist and other music restrictions, the mood we wanted her to set, and more. During the reception, Erica was extremely attentive to our needs as the bride and groom-- as an energetic emcee, she kept the flow going throughout the evening and played a huge role in corralling guests for group photos, etc.
I had to stop and tell Erica before we left our reception that night that I truly appreciated her work and professionalism; hiring her as our DJ was the one aspect of our wedding that was completely stress-free for me. I would be amiss if I didn't mention her live band option for events, as well-- I've seen Erica and her band perform at weddings and other local events, and they have a fantastic sound. You can't go wrong either way!
Bottom line-- If you are looking for a DJ or band in the Upstate for very reasonable rates and outstanding service, stop your vendor research and go ahead and book Erica!
Erica · Married on 10/15/2016
Erica Berg is the absolute best! She has the voice of an angel and the heart of one too. She is the most genuine person I have ever met. I'm so incredibly thankful for her. She eased my nerves and helped in so many other ways than just entertaining. She was pretty much a wedding planner for me as well! She goes above and beyond what she is asked to do. She sang in my ceremony, which to this day people tell me that her voice and the way she worships makes grown men cry. It was absolutely beautiful. We also used her for a Band and DJ. Their band is awesome! They really know how to throw down and get people up and dancing. I told my husband I wish it could have gone on forever. I didn't want it to end. The last hour Erica DJ'ed and man did she have everyone on the dance floor. I loved how she got down on the dance floor and danced and sang with everyone. We had so much fun! If you are looking for a band or DJ for your wedding or ceremony music, this is your girl. I would not even consider anyone else. She is the best there is and she has a heart of gold. I feel like I gained a friend when I met her because she is just that type of person. She will bend over backwards for you. If this post doesn't help you make a decision all you have to do is hear her sing. Thank you Erica for helping make our wedding day absolutely perfect!Sent on 12/12/2016

Erica and her team did a wonderful job for us on our big weekend! Erica and her band played a nice acoustical set for our rehearsal dinner. It couldn't have gone any better. Erica chose great music to fit the venue and the setting. Our guests were all talking about Erica's voice and how talented the musicians were. We couldn't have kicked off our weekend any better. The next day we used them for our reception as well. Jordan was a great DJ. He played great music and really meshed well with our guests. We had multiple guests coming up and complimenting the music. It's nice to have a company that can provide the combination of a DJ and live music. Something we couldn't pass up. You can't go wrong with The Erica Berg Collective!Sent on 06/20/2017

My wife Michelle and I enthusiastically recommend Erica Berg and Collective Music Solutions for weddings, receptions, and any event. Erica made sure our wedding in July 2016 went perfectly with a combination of our selections and others that were crowd pleasers. Our friends and family consistently complimented Erica and the band and said our reception was a blast. Erica is sincere, fun, talented, is having such a good time herself it is contagious. From the day we met and interviewed Erica, it was a very easy choice and process to work with her. She got to know us and we selected both live music and recorded music. One of the best things is Erica and Collective Music Solutions can be big or small depending on your event. We opted for 6 piece at our wedding reception and could not have been happier. We also had a close friend sing at our wedding and Erica was supportive and helpful to her. What a great person and group to work with....highest possible recommendation.Sent on 07/12/2017

Erica Berg was by far the best choice we could have made for our wedding entertainment. They do it all! I wanted live music for my walk down the isle and during cocktail hour and a DJ for the rest of the night. Instead of having to hire two separate groups, we got everything we wanted (honestly it exceeded everything I had hoped for) in one place. They are so accommodating and beyond friendly. Trust me, she will make your dreams come true!Sent on 06/08/2017

I can not tell you how special it was to have The Erica Berg Collective at our reception this past May. She is beyond amazing, she sang our first dance and a father/daughter song for us and her voice was beautiful. We chose to have the live jazz ensemble play for the dinner hour and then have her provide dj services. She is so accommodating and makes you feel as if you have known her your whole life. You can not go wrong with choosing this service. Classy, elegant, and professional are words that come to mind to describe the Erica Berg Collective.Sent on 07/08/2016

This is a wonderful band to have at your wedding. Erica is focused on what her bride and groom want, and she more than delivers. She also has a fantastic voice and excellent musical talent to cover any situation- she provided sound for our ceremony, lovely cocktail hour music, great danceable tunes live- then threw out an hour long DJ dance party. We were thrilled!Sent on 04/20/2016
