We used both the Sonata Strings (trio), and had DJ Eric Smith for our wedding, and they both delivered. Tanis with Sonata Stringswas great with customizing the music to our unique ceremony, and Eric was perfect! Eric was able to take our differences in music, and coordinate...

I HIGHLY recommend Eric, but the coolest thing about the Cleveland Music Group is that every DJ has their own video, so you can kind of tell a little bit about their personality and how they will fit with you. They were a little more than I wanted to spend, but worth every dollar.

This company was by far one of the most PROFESSIONAL to work with of all the vendors we hired for our special day. From beginning to end, we truly felt like we were in good hands not only picking Cleveland Music Group, but specifically DJ DC (aka Dan Cormier). We were VERY... Read More picky about the DJ for our event. We had been to weddings where, let’s just say you realize how important the DJ is at the end of the day. Since we were planning our wedding from across the country, it was a challenge to find the right fit for us. We just didn’t have the time or luxury of interviewing countless DJs before our wedding day. We really appreciated that Cleveland Music Group is hip with the times—showcasing each DJ they have to offer with personalized individual webpages, complete with a highlight video for each DJ to give you an idea of their personality, style, and approach. EXTREMELY helpful. Did not find this sort of info on other DJ sites. As soon as we met Dan in person, we were sold. His outstanding voice, laid back personality, and can-do attitude instantly put us at ease. He understood our needs without much explanation at all. He was the first DJ we met with, and we booked him immediately! The day of our wedding was amazing. He accommodated all of our requests—much more work on his end—and was easily able to adapt to any last minute changes during the course of the evening. He kept us up to speed on where the night was headed—knew exactly what to anticipate when—and adjusted things accordingly. He clearly knew what he was doing and always kept things professional. We got sooo many compliments from friends and family how great the music was. The dance floor was packed all night long. Can’t imagine our reception without DJ DC! Thank you!!

Picking a DJ is a very hard task, because they really are the voice of your reception, and we could not be more happy that DJ Michael Alexander was ours!! Cleveland Music group as a whole is super responsive, Scott Jones helped us to pick the perfect DJ, uplighting and photo... Read More booth for our big day. We went with DJ Michael Alexander, he met with us a month before our wedding to go over our music style and vision for the night and immediately we noticed that our taste of music was totally in sync! We asked for a mixture of today's music but also some 80s hits and even a special request to play a couple Romanian songs as a tradition for my family. The night of our wedding he and his assistant did not disappoint!! Our dance floor was packed all night! They even started dancing before our first dance! He helped to tailor a night that ran perfectly and smoothly to include traditional father daughter, mother son, bouquet/garter toss, where the dance floor would clear but then he would play a hit that would get everyone back out on the dance floor. Honestly picking a DJ can be a little stressful as they really are one of the most important details as to how your night will go and we hands down could not be more thankful to DJ Michael Alexander and the Cleveland Music Group for making it a night to remember!

We had the BEST luck finding DJ Chris Wallace! We enjoyed getting to know the DJs through their intro videos on the website and thought he would be a good fit. We had an introductory Skype call a few weeks before the wedding, and he was totally eager to get to know us and our tastes. He practiced pronouncing the names of the bridal party a few times, which meant so much! At the reception, he put us TOTALLY at ease. So professional and a confident MC. He even approached us once or twice to ask about certain songs or check in on timing. His extra care was so appreciated! I got the idea for our "grand exit" in the middle of the reception, and he conducted it perfectly. I would HIGHLY recommend this company, especially DJ Chris Wallace!

We booked through CLE Music Group for our wedding reception that was this Friday. They were very professional throughout the process and have many options of DJ's available so that they can help fit your budget. We booked DJ Chris Wallace and had one meeting with him, which I... Read More felt he asked the right questions and tried to get to know us as a couple in order to figure out how we wanted our night to go. I knew as soon as he was there, that I didn't have to worry or control anything, because he had the itinerary down. He was also very flexible, working with my photographer's schedule in order to make sure all major events got photographed before she had to leave. He took requests from our guests, didn't play any music that we didn't want played, and even played one song twice, because I missed it the first time around and asked him to play it again. We would highly recommend Chris Wallace for anyone booking through this company!!

The singer and trumpet/sax players even came out on the dance floor throughout the night.

I only got married four days ago, and I've already had dozens of people go out of their way to tell me that The Orchestra was the best band they'd ever seen at a wedding. My biggest fear for my wedding was that the dance floor would be empty, but those fears were quickly... Read More alleviated because, about halfway through the first song, so many people were dancing (of every age and background) that there wasn't even enough room for everybody... and it stayed that way all night.

Not only were they unbelievably entertaining the night of the wedding, they were also extremely responsive and accommodating throughout my planning process. I could go on with about a million amazing things to say about The Orchestra, but I think the most important thing I could say to resonate with a future bride is this: I have absolutely nothing BAD to say about Dwayne and the rest of the incredible musicians and entertainers in The Orchestra.... THEY WILL MAKE YOUR DAY AMAZING.
