We had The Bottom Line play at our wedding a few weeks ago and it was a huge success! The band did a great job getting guests dancing and kept it lively and fun all night. They played both oldies as well as some current hits; all of which were played well. They are a talented bunch and I’m so happy we had them at our wedding!! Guests continue to compliment me on how well the band played!

DJ Scott Jones is the best of the best! The music sets the tone for the reception and Scott Jones is an expert! This was a vital part of our planning and we knew we hit gold with Scott Jones. Scott Jones was also the DJ for both of my sister's weddings within the last 3 years and we could not be more satisfied with the service we received! Scott was quick to respond to emails and incredibly easy to work with on the day of the wedding! Our guests had a great time and were dancing all night! If you are looking for a group that provides excellent service and makes your planning stress-free, this is the group for you!

We couldn't be happier that we booked Scott Jones. The whole process of wedding planning can be stressful, but working with Scott and his team was probably the least stressful part of the evening. He went out of his way to get to know us and tailor the music around our tastes. He kept the party moving at all the right times and made sure we had a full dance floor until midnight. Harpist, Virginia Dickinson, went out of her way to learn new music for the ceremony and cocktail hour and played beautifully. There is a reason Scott comes so highly recommended by so many couples; he delivers on everything promised and ensures your night goes off without a hitch. You wont be disappointed, his team is worth every penny!

I live in Virginia and planned my wedding from a distance and the only way that I saw Rockin Ravers perform was from their videos (which are awesome). Let me tell you that it was one of the best decisions I could have ever made!!

I got in touch with Steve the band director before the wedding and asked them to learn our first dance song. He was so nice about it and they did such an amazing job. The genre of music played is so appropriate for all ages. My 8 year niece was doing air guitar the whole night and my 80 year old grandfather danced the night away.

We were so pleased with they performance. All of our guests commented on how awesome of a job they did and how much they kept the party going. They knew exactly what songs should be played and when. They were so upbeat about everything and so friendly and kind to everyone. I am so happy they were at my wedding and I wish I could do it all over again. Thank you for such an excellent night guys!!

We visited Jerry Bruno Productions just looking for a DJ when we started planning our big day. Working with Scott Jones and his staff made us feel so comfortable that we were in good hands with people that really know how to have a great time and make sure the party or event we want to throw is a great one!

Scott got us all the info we needed for DJ's, gave us a great deal on our booking and even though we hadn't met with our DJ yet, gave us great reassurance that we would love our selection. From there, he opened us up to adding some more services in so we went with the string quartet for our ceremony; the Sonata Strings. They played beautifully and were very professional and courteous. On time and very easy to work with, we are so happy with their performance. Extremely talented and a great addition to our day.

Our DJ - DJ Art was awesome! he was chill when he needed to be, fun and exciting when the party was going, not afraid to get in on the action and have fun, he was just like another friend being at the party. He did amazing with our song preferences and feeling the vibe of what kind of dancing everyone wanted to do. He kept everyone dancing for at least 2 hours straight, the only time people left the dance floor was to go...

Have fun in our great Slo Mo Pros video booth! Jon Blair and his team really killed it! They were the hit of the night, everyone can't stop talking about how much fun it was and we've already watched our edited video he prepared for us at least 20 times. This made our night absolutely unforgettable on top of all the other great things happening. A+++

He was very easy to work with - from our first meeting he was professional and helpful; providing song suggestions and also working with us to play our personal requests. He kept our guests out on the dance floor the entire evening - working in songs for both the young and old in the crowd. We highly recommend him for any event!

This is arguably the most important piece wen planning your wedding reception. Communication is key. From the beginning, Scott was unbelievable in communiction and guidance helping us pick a DJ that got our needs and wants! By far, the best communication from any vendor we hired for the rehearsal dinner/wedding/reception combined. DJDC played what we wanted, did not play the songs we told him not to, and was our pilot all night. He kept the dance floor going, kept it classy yet new age, shifted things and was very flexible as we delayed our entrance and first dance. He was informative all the way through the wedding. I provide service for a living, and when asked for criticism, I try to give as honest feed as I can. I typically don't give all 5 stars, but these guys earned it. They were very fair priced, and I never questioned any of their recommendations, or choices. Overly accommodating. We had some mic trouble at the beginning of the reception, but that was resolved within minutes, and the rest of the night was perfect. DJ DC pronounced all the wedding party names right too, and we had some tricky ones! Thanks for everything DJDC, Scott, and Jerry Bruno Productions! If you are booking any where close to Cleveland for your event, whatever event that is, don't get another quote. These guys are solid!

We had a great experience with Jerry Bruno Productions. They have several different DJs and we wanted to make sure we found the one that best matched our style and taste in music. I loved that their website has bio videos by each DJ, which allowed us to narrow down who we thought might be best for our wedding. All of the staff was incredible responsive, and we ended up booking Dan Cormier (AKA DJ DC). Dan sat down with us a few times to go over what type of music we liked and worked with us to put together the perfect playlist. I had a really wanted our wedding to be a giant dance party, and Dan kept the dance floor packed all night! Working with Dan and Jerry Bruno Productions was seamless.

We met with him before the wedding to go over some of our likes and dislikes but we pretty much left it all up to Scott to decide what to play. He kept our dance floor packed the entire night. The flow and mixture of the music was perfect, he really knows how to read the crowd. I would HIGHLY recommend him to all of my friends, family and anyone looking to have a fabulous party!!

Book THE BOTTOM LINE BAND! You will not be disappointed. They kept our dance floor hopping all night long with great, classic dance songs. And Stan our MC for the night did a wonderful and classy job. And as a former professional radio DJ I'm extremely critical of MCs. I cannot stand cheesy DJs or over the top personalities.

He was a lot of fun and the sound quality is so much better than any other dj's or production companies around.

**What a wonderful performance. I went with Sonata strings for my cermony. I emailed them briefly before the wedding that i wanted Cannon in D to be played when I walked down the isle. They suggested playing it for the entire wedding party (of parents and my 1 maid of honor and best man). And it was perfect! I didnt get a chance to see them prior to my ceremony due to my scheduling, but they did everything pefect and it was wonderful. The music was beautiful and they did everying perfectly.

Pick Sonata strings through Jerry Bruno!

** DJ Art. I also booked by DJ for the reception through them, Dr Art Schmidt. What a wonderful guy! he was also flexible and played the weird songs I requested! ( such as Weird al). He played fun songs, kept everyone entertained and lively. He helped with the key moments and made sure everyone had a good time. What a positive and lively person. Hes so full of energy and transmits that to the party

Pick DJ Art Schmidt for your wedding through Jerry Bruno!

They are a very professional company that is easy to work with. It is nice because you have the ability to watch videos of all the DJs so you know who you might like. We ended working with Tommy Dwyer who was professional, fun, and very organized. He coordinated with us and our venue to make sure everyone was on the same page and that everything was correct. He was very flexible, I ended up making a lot of changes and every time he would send me and updated schedule. Our dance floor was packed the entire night. He did a great job reading the crowd and making sure that people were getting up to dance. We had several people comment on how great our DJ was. He was not cheesy at all, which was my main concern with having a DJ.

Everyone was asking us where we found the band, they told us we should hire them again for a party just because, told us they never dance but the band was so good they ended up dancing, etc. They allowed our little nieces to dance with them up in the performance area, which made their entire year.

Jerry Bruno Productions is very professional and I'm glad that I chose them for my DJ and ceremony music. I loved that Jerry Bruno has everything from DJ's to String Trios to Bands to simplify the process of choosing wedding music. I initially worked with Geoff Short and he was very helpful when I was choosing my DJ and ceremony musician.

The String Trio with Mary Beth as the leader played for our ceremony. The music was beautiful and guests were commenting on the music choices through the night. Mary Beth contacted me a few weeks before the wedding with music she had selected to make sure I liked the choices...I loved the choices! Everything was so appropriate and beautiful sounding.

Bill Bowen was our DJ and he did a great job with the music at our reception. He also took the time to meet with me a few weeks before the wedding to discuss music and ceremony details to make sure we were on the same page the day of our event. The night of our wedding he did a great job of following our requests and not playing from the do not play list. He was easy-going with guests making requests during the wedding as well. He did a great job accurately announcing the wedding party and directing things like the cake cutting. Everything went smoothly and my husband and I had a great time!

DJ Matt Gazdak is the BEST!!!! He ROCKED our dance floor without being cheesy or obnoxious. He played all the songs we requested and none of the ones we didn't. He was friendly, patient with all our requests, and our guests LOVED the music. There are lots of DJs with Jerry Bruno - be sure to ask for Matt!!!

There is a reason this is continuously rated #1 in Cleveland (and is also known by EVERYONE that you say the name to)....it's because of their quality, their attention to detail, and their ability to make a wedding pure FUN! I was married on July 2, 2011 and the ceremony music was the perfect beginning to a perfect day. We went with the String Quartet to accompany our pianist and vocalist. I remember sitting up on the alter and just soaking in how beautiful our music was.

Then, the Orchestra. This was by far my favorite part of the reception. The music was OUTSTANDING! Our dance floor was never empty...and people were wanting our meal to end so they could dance. And trust me - where we had it - they are known for their meals! :) Working with the company was very easy - they do all the hard work, you provide the details and the list of the music, and let them go. Brides - don't micromanage your vendors. Trust me - when you let them do their "magic" with just a few details from you - you receive the purest form of their talent. And trust me - talent is in abundance with Jerry Bruno.

Thanks everyone!

TCB, or the Tony Camerato Band, from Jerry Bruno Productions truly wowed our 300 guests with their awesome renditions of all the classic motown and rock songs. Performing in downtown Cleveland they truly characterized the home of Rock and Roll with great playlists, awesome emcee services by Tony himself, and a very cordial band. They played all the hits and played right up to the very end of the night!

If you are looking for a professional, well versed band that can rock the house, The Avenue, is what you are looking for. The vocals are unbelievable and the band members can play anything. Our guests spanned generations and the dance floor was packed the entire evening. We couldn't believe how quickly the evening passed.

We hired The Avenue a band through Jerry Bruno. This band was ROCKING! They kept everyone on the dance floor all night long and later! We had so much fun with all of them. We are still receiving compliments on their performance. The Avenue also let me sing a little song called "These Eyes" to my new husband, which I really appreciated. They were worth every penny and very easy to work with.

Simply put, we had a great experience with Jerry Bruno Productions (and our DJ Mark Guthrie) from start to finish.

From the first contact to the night of our wedding, everything was very well done. The staff helped us review bands and DJs and select the right person for us, the planning/contract phase was easy, and we felt like we got a very good rate. And planning details with Mark was really easy, he was wonderful to work with, and he did a great job at the reception.

One thing that's really great about Mark is that he's not one of those cheesy DJs with a stereotypical DJ voice and delivery. He didn't make the introductions, music, etc. about him -- it was all about us.

I'd highly recommend working with Jerry Bruno Productions and if you are looking for a DJ, Mark was great! It was so nice to have total confidence in a vendor.

Having some experience in the wedding industry, I knew that the two most important things to making our wedding memorable were the food and the entertainment. When we first began planning our wedding, I was working directly with Jerry to determine what band would most suit our needs. He may have recommended a few options, but the one that seemed to stand out was the Jon Blair Quartet. Jerry was a pleasure to work with and really took the time to understand our needs. The Jon Blair Quartet was wonderful! Jon is an amazingly talented musician and his band was very entertaining. Our guests were blown away! We had a small wedding (~100 guests), but Jon always had someone on the dance floor. Jon was a pleasure to work with as well� the ultimate professional.

The level of professionalism, talent and versatility was unbeatable. All of our guests from ages 18 to 80 were out on the dance floor and even 1 1/2 years later we still receive compliments.

We booked Storyville for our wedding reception in August. Just saying that they made our reception, doesn't do the band justice. Jerry Bruno was the most responsive vendor we booked. We had DVDs of sample music within a week of calling. We were able to see Storyville perform before booking them. The band was very easy to work with and were very flexible with our wants and needs. The dance floor was full the entire night (very unlike other family weddings we have attended) and people are still commenting on the music 8 months later!

We had DJ Skye from Jerry Bruno Productions, and she did a fantastic job. The only reason I knocked half a star off the "Quality of Service" section is because there were one or two songs we really wanted to hear that didn't get played. That being said, however, we did pick an awful lot of music so it's understandable. All the most important stuff we requested was there, and things went off without a hitch. Jerry Bruno Productions took care of us, and were incredibly flexible in scheduling meetings and personalizing everything to suit us perfectly. I do forget how much they cost, but I do remember that it was competitive with the quality DJ's in the area. I say quality because a couple of DJ's I saw were cheaper, but, for example, had equipment from 1992, and while I'm sure it was great equipment in its time, I wouldn't want my reception to be the one where the older equipment finally dies.

We used DJ Spencer Reynolds for our big night, and I’ve got to say he was fantastic!! I saw one slightly negative review about him on here, and I’ll admit I was a little nervous, but he ended up exceeding my expectations. He was so professional, he kept the schedule of the night going (when to do toasts, parent dances, cake cutting, etc) smoothly, and was really on top of everything. I’m pretty sure he played almost every song I requested on the “must play” list, and didn’t play anything on the “do not play” list. He was great about taking requests from our guests too (including our crazy yet adorable flower girls), and I got lots of compliments from them. I would recommend Spencer as a DJ to anyone, and was exactly in our price range!

Jerry Bruno's The Bottom Line band is just incredible. ALL our guests were out of their seats dancing and enjoying the music. It was definitely one aspect of the wedding that people still talk about - how awesome the band was. I highly recommend them.

We also hired a pianist for the cocktail hour, Paul and I did not attend the cocktail reception, but I did hear he was good. The only thing that erked me was right before Paul and I were ready to be introduced as Mr. and Mrs. to our guests, the pianist came up to us and asked for payment since he played longer then expected. This is the last thing you want to talk about right before one of your big moments or on your wedding day period. It seems to me there was a better way to handle the situation.

The only complaint that we had that initially, the contact person for the band wasn't getting back to us to discuss songs, format, etc. My husband had to make several phone calls to them before anyone called him back. And, the night of our reception, they messed up our name and didn't play certain songs that we requested and told us that night that they didn't know those songs which were discussed in advance.

Dawn,

I have contacted Heart & Soul on this matter. I am glad that you loved their performance, they are a very talented group. But I am curious as to why it seems your requests were ignored. They should have either made an effort to learn your requests (at least a few of them) or played them on cd during a break. I am also wondering when you tried to contact the bandleader; if it was within one month prior to the date, the bandleader should have been more prompt in getting back to you.

We were hoping that after several months notice the band would be able to learn a few songs, but they did not reply until the week before the wedding. We were required to pay extra for set-up time when it should really be up to the organization to prepare promptly for the event. The gobo was put in backward but corrected before the event began. HOWEVER, the band itself was amazing - they played a collection of recent hits as well as oldies that suited the whole crowd. They are expensive, but worth it. The emcee did a great job as well as the music played during breaks was done well too. Thank you.
Services Used: Band
Jerry Bruno Productions / Cleveland Music & Entertainment Group responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear the the gobo was corrected in time and that the talent and entertainment provided from the band, including emcee and break music, was worth the cost!

I would like to address each concern you mentioned:

First, it is unclear whether you didn't hear from the band at all until a week before the wedding, or if they just didn't reply to your question about song requests until then. If it was the former, that would be unacceptable but I'm sure we would have been aware of the problem earlier than that. If it was the latter, we try to inform all brides that song requests are at the discretion of each band. The decision to learn a new song depends on how well the song fits the band's talent base as well as if the song is popular enough to be used at more than one wedding. If a band decides they cannot do a particular song justice, or that the song will likely never be used again, we recommend the recording be played. You mentioned that the music played during the breaks was done well, and that is the perfect time to hear your favorite songs that the band does not perform.

Second, as per your contract, all bookings include one hour of set-up time immediately prior to start time. If your particular schedule or venue requires set-up to begin earlier than that, then yes there is an early set-up fee for that extra time, just as you would need to pay extra if time were added on at the end of the night. Sometimes this happens at venues where the ceremony is taking place in the same room as the reception, requiring early arrival and set-up prior to the ceremony. This is not usually the case, and the one hour set-up time is sufficient in most situations.

Altho we had a problem with one of the bands on our day I am glad to say that the Jerry Bruno company took care of things in the end. The best talent in this area is going to come from this company; we booked three different groups. The website is great in order to find exactly what you are looking for and even then you can always call their staff if your looking for something not on their site. We were recommended another group that wasn't even on their site for our cocktail hour.

Dealing with Jerry Bruno Productions directly was great. They were professional on the phone and provided a clear contract, etc. We hired DJ Mike Palumbo for our wedding based on the video on the website.

We had a lighting person and a band, and Mike said he had never been to our indoor/outdoor venue, so we wanted our DJ present at a vendor meeting. Mike reluctantly agreed to do a site visit. Upon arriving he immediately complained about having to be there.

I told Mike I wanted lots of country music, but if this is your preference please know this is not his preference. He also played the wrong version of my father-daughter dance.

I don't know what happened between him and my site coordinator, but she asked for his name/company to be sure she didn't recommend him for future events...

My DJ was Ernie Ensign, and I wasn't particularly impressed. He was nice overall, did a decent job of emceeing the events at the reception and wasn't annoying or anything during the dancing, but he didn't listen very well to what I wanted. I didn't have any unreasonable requests...just a "do not play" list (which he adhered to well) and a "play" list (which he didn't really listen to). During the reception I'd go up and ask him to play one of the songs on the list and he'd say "oh, I couldn't find that one..." which isn't really an excuse to me in the iTunes age. I mean, if I can download it then a DJ should be able to, right!?

Oh, and he also played the wrong song for our first dance (which we had had professionally choreographed to a specific song). We went with it and few of our guests knew anything was wrong, but I was really upset!

Jerry Bruno is a professional service but the particular DJ we chose was not at all up to what I imagine the company standards are. We met with our DJ, Spencer, prior to our reception and gave him a list of songs we'd like to have played, and the timeline of how we'd like the event to go that evening. Not only were almost none of our songs played and the timeline was completely wrong, but he became quite irritated when several of my bridesmaids came up to ask him to play a song. He even got quite angry with one when she snapped his picture. Could have been MUCH better and this is my only regret of the wedding. Spencer was one of the less pricier DJ's at this company so I guess you get what you pay for!

Jerry Bruno Productions / Cleveland Music & Entertainment Group responded with the following comments:

Dear eag828,

I am sorry that we didn't see this response from you closer to your wedding date. When we hear that a client isn't completely satisfied, we always discuss the matter with the artist that was hired. So I would ask that any unhappy customers contact us at the office so we can handle the issue in a prompt manner. We have no record of you contacting our office to discuss this matter, and when your review was posted here, we were not receiving "you have a new review" alerts from WeddingWire.com. We are now, however, and will be able to respond in a more timely fashion.

We did discuss this matter with your DJ, and apologize for any actions that appeared inappropriate. Spencer does not recall getting his picture taken; perhaps he was busy with the music or with his equipment and this was construed as disinterest. He does remember that the photography took a while to complete following dinner, which pushed the dancing back by 10-15 minutes, but that the crowd was happy and packed on the dance floor the rest of the evening.

Again, we appreciate client comments so that we know how our artists are performing, as we cannot be at every event to supervise. And we want our artists to know that we do communicate with our clients after events and that we do get updates on how they performed. This helps everyone perform better and get better service at future events.

Sincerely,
Jerry Bruno Productions

I have mixed feelings about leaving a bad review, because Tony Camerato Band did a wonderful job playing our wedding and our guests had a great time. However, my dealings with Jerry Bruno were less than satisfactory and that is the focus of this review. I felt that they used bait-and-switch techniques and also did not honor things that were mutually agreed upon and put in writing in our contract from the get-go. My husband and I ended up having to pay more right before our wedding because of this -- it felt like they waited until they "had" us and then sang a different tune (no pun intended). I found them to be inflexible and unwilling to make things right after the fact. Can't recommend them to other brides, sorry.
Services Used: Band
Jerry Bruno Productions / Cleveland Music & Entertainment Group responded with the following comments:

We are glad you and your guests had a great time. TCB is a great band and Tony often goes above and beyond for his brides. That is why we had to compensate the band fairly for the hour of early set-up time that was added after they were booked.

When we quote prices for bands, the initial price always includes 4 hours of music plus 1 hour of early set-up. This is spelled out in all contracts. Itineraries often change as the date nears, but in all cases, when the set-up time for the band increases from one hour to two hours, as it did here, that incurs an additional $150 fee.

Regardless of whether the early set-up is requested due to the ceremony taking place in the same room or the band needing to play an extra song, the addition of another hour incurs a fee because the band members are putting in extra time.

TERRIBLE band!!! We had Redline at our wedding...they promised to play a specific list/genre at our wedding and did not at all. When I went up to them to ask why, they stormed off and played a CD. They were rude and horrible! When I complained to Scott Jones about it....he never even responded!!! whatever you do...stay away from Jerry Bruno and their bands!! The Sonata Strings were great for the cermony, but DO NOT book Redline! They were classless, rude and a waste!!!!
