John Ross Music and Production has been the Northwest’s premier provider of live music and sound for weddings and parties since 2004. Based on owner John Ross’ extensive experience as a musician and event planner, the company provides all-inclusive packages that offer quality, simplicity and affordability to its clients.

The company 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.

John was great to work with. Laid back and professional, the perfect combination. His music choices were perfect and he kept things running smoothly. His acoustic performance for our ceremony was outstanding. Would work with him again in a second!

I really wanted a DJ who knew what he was doing. John Ross is that guy. He knows exactly what he is doing and does it amazingly. John was really helpful when it came to the planning, he brought up things I hadn't even thought about. He always emailed me back right away and was VERY helpful. The day of he helped the process go very smoothly and checked in a few times. I couldn't of asked for a better DJ.

Extremely professional and talented. Did the ceremony music and DJ'd for the reception. Met early on and was very attuned to what we needed and wanted for our wedding. We asked if he would be able to play a song for us that he hadn't played before and he was able to listen and play and sing it after about 30 seconds of hearing it as well as had a recorded sample of the full song the very next day that he sent us. He recorded all the audio during ceremony and speeches which turned out in great quality. During the reception dancing, the site built in speakers had an issue and he seamlessly transitioned to his own equipment, which I did not realize until I had talked to him afterwards. Having brought all the extra and unnecessary gear 3 hours away for our wedding for such an unlikely thing speaks to the quality you get. We had a couple last minute changes during the reception that he handled without question. I didn't expect much dancing from my very shy family members, but everybody turned up for the dance floor and everyone at the wedding said they had so much fun and I can attribute that to John. Thank you so much!

John Ross did an AMAZING job at our wedding!!! He played guitar and sang for our ceremony and DJ'd our reception. We definitely should have used his incredible voice more during the reception, and regret not doing so. He is super professional and personable, and can read a room. Everyone loved him as a DJ at our party! I would definitely recommend John Ross!

I would have never guessed that I would end up getting married on a golf course, nor could I have ever imagined myself holding that wedding in beautiful, green, Portland, Oregon. Yet, here I was, a year ago, newly engaged, and setting a date to be wed in my newly claimed home state on a stunning golf course. One of the next big steps was to figure out the music, of course- and after describing to someone what we were looking for in a DJ/musician, we were promptly, and insistently, pointed in the direction of John Ross Music and Production. Soon after we began our initial interview with our assigned musician, Michael Blake, we were not only impressed by him, we were surprised at how effective just one man and his guitar can truly be! In short, we were sold. I always thought I might walk down the isle to a violin, or maybe a flute, or maybe both?! But just hearing Canon in D, picked out on a guitar, on a whim, by Michael Blake that day, changed everything. The actual day of the wedding was magical, and how could it not have been, as not only did the acoustic guitar playing create the most elegant and romantic of ambiances all the way from the ceremony through the dinner hour- it turns out that the man can DJ well too! The dance floor was not big enough to hold the portion of the crowd up and dancing, as well, I am fairly certain we easily went over our 11PM time limit…but it was so much fun- we cannot thank Blake and John Ross Music and Production enough for helping to make our wedding day so very special!

Every aspect of the service John Ross Music provided was first class. Michael played beautifully during the ceremony and even played during dinner. He kept the reception moving without being intrusive and had a good time with our guests. They exceeded our expectations.

John Ross was AMAZING! He helped guide our wedding thtough all the events smoothly and kept us on schedule! He kept the crowd entertained and the music was on point! One thing that really stood out was that he noticed we didn't have cake cutting utensils, so as we were walking over to cut our cake he ran up and handed us a knife from the kitchen! No one even noticed! He had our back the whole wedding! I would recommend John Ross to every bride out there planning their wedding!
