“Have I told you how much I love you? Thank you for taking such fine care of Noel and James. I am working with 2 more brides in October and you have already come up in the initial interview! Dang, all my brides love you!
- Gabrielle, Wedding Coordinator via email on 01/12/11

“Now that the dust has settled after the wedding, we just wanted to again thank you for giving us a beautiful wedding day.  You were so great- from start to finish, dealing with our many requests and changes.   Whenever I thought of getting married, i always knew the music would be the most important element and you really fulfilled and exceeded all of our expectations.”
- Melissa, Wedding Client via email on 09/18/12

“John played live at our ceremony and then again at the cocktail hour. Once the reception started he DJ’ed. Our guests kept saying they couldn’t believe he did both! That was the biggest reason why we went with John Ross. John is a totally and completely chill person. He is laid back but professional at the same time. He makes you feel as though you are friends rather than his client. I really enjoyed working with him. I have already recommended John Ross Music to some of my friends who are getting married next summer and would recommend him to anyone!”
- Lindsay Olson, Wedding Client Married 8/17/12

“Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that – well YOU ROCK!! I couldn’t be more happy with music at our wedding – you are a very talented man! I was so happy that the guests we able to hear some of their song choices and that you were able to perform our first dance and our father/daughter mother/son dance. I have had so many people comment that it was the best music they have heard at a wedding in a long time! We all loved that you and the band performed and then transitioned into DJ’d music. I am sure you remember the best man dancing ALL night – that has to be a sign that it was great!! I have never EVER seen him dance :) I will definitely be recommending John Ross Music to everyone I know!!”
- Amanda Manaro, Wedding Client (6/1/12 via email)

Our Story

John Ross Music and Production got its start in 2004 when owner John Ross began offering simple all-inclusive solutions to the complex requirements of special events. By grouping DJ service together with live ceremony music and complete sound support, the company began saving brides and grooms time, money and energy. Planning birthday parties and corporate events became easier thanks to a vendor who offered the flexibility to feature both live music and DJ service at the same event.

Over the years, John Ross Music and Production has become known for inspired live music, flawless audio production, and attentive DJ service. Our clients appreciate the simplicity of working with just one person. They also appreciate the friendly professionalism with which they are treated and the attention to detail their wedding or event receives. Whether yours is an elaborate wedding or a simple get together with friends, John Ross Music and Production has the talent and experience to deliver an event that looks great, sounds amazing and flows perfectly.
