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.

Best decision we could have made for our wedding. John Ross Music has it down and I don't know how anyone could choose an alternative live musician or DJ when there is an option to have both from the same person. Michael Blake (our musician) is a fantastic musician, and he kept the dance party going all night. Super cool dude and was great to work with. We received so many compliments from our guests!

John Ross Music Productions was an outstanding vendor to work with. Our musician, Andrew Serino was truly amazing! I love how the company provides the DJ with the live music as a package. Andrew made our wedding day perfect and did an amazing job from start to finish! We had a meeting with him a couple weeks before and he put us at ease with his professionalism and most of all, his suggestions on music for the day!! He made it all come together for us. I'm sure most couples have an idea of what they want but we didn't really have a clue and he really did help put everything together for us and made me feel so much better about the day and the vision I had!! I highly recommend John Ross and Andrew Serino!! My fiancé did not like the idea of spending this kind of money on music but in the end, he agreed the price was well worth it! He definitely said money well spent!! Andrew exceeded every expectation we had!!

We couldn't be happier with our experience with John Ross Music and Production at our wedding. They made every step of planning easy with surveys about what we wanted and helpful suggestions to fill in the gaps. Kevin did a great job keeping the flow of events going with announcements, etc. He was wonderful at tailoring the music to what we liked and what kept people on the dance floor. Highly recommend!

If you are looking for a perfect, full service DJ/Musician, look no further than Michael Blake (and John Ross Productions)! They were a joy to work with from start to finish. Michael is an incredible musician, and his DJ skills were on point, too. He played live for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and even learned the guitar accompaniment for a surprise song that my recording artist sister wrote and performed for us during the reception. With a few requests and some style suggestions, Michael had the dance floor packed for the entire wedding. We didn't want it to end, it was perfect. Would give them 6 stars if we could!

One of the easiest decisions we made during the wedding planning process was booking Andrew with John Ross Music. We could not have asked for or dreamt up a better experience working with a vendor. John and Andrew were amazing during each of our meetings trying to decide on music for each special part of our wedding day. We came with a few ideas and they took our overall vibe and made some perfect suggestions for what we wanted. If we were deciding between a few songs, Andrew would grab his guitar and play them for us so we could hear how they sounded live. We trusted Andrew completely and each song he played kept people on the dance floor, it was awesome! Thank you so much to everyone at John Ross Music, it was so amazing working with them!

Hiring John Ross as our wedding DJ was one of the best decisions I made during our wedding planning process. It was an easy choice once seeing him perform at the Portland Bridal Show, getting recommendations that kept leading us to him and then talking with him in person. I was tickled that we would have him be a part of our special day. He was the perfect essential puzzle piece that kept the wedding flowing, made it fun, well organized, upbeat and personal. The process of working with him was so smooth...down to the interactive Q&A web page that he provided custom to us, his promt - on top of it replys, our in person meeting, his flexibility and expertise, his laid back - "got it handled", fun personality, etc.

It made it easy to trust that our wedding day event was going to flow well, be organized (being led by John MC-ing), be personal and be magical. And...indeed, our day was all of that and more thanks to John's help and professionalism. It was a pleasure working with you, John!!! Thank you!!

We were very pleased with his services and know that anyone else using his services would also share our sentiments.

John Ross Music was AMAZING to work with. In the planning process John was a great correspondent and was quick and timely to get back to us with any questions we had. I enjoyed their online questionnaires to help them prepare for our wedding, they were thorough and utilized well in the production of our wedding. Andrew was our DJ/musician. He had many jobs to perform that day. We had to venue sites, one for ceremony and one for reception. Our ceremony was outdoors and they brought a quiet generator to power the sound system and everything was flawless. Back out our reception site for cocktail hour our guests were greeted with background music until Andrew arrived back at the site to play live music for cocktail hour. He worked wonderfully with all of our vendors and acted as a coordinator for moving through events at our reception. We couldn't have been more appreciative and thankful for Andrew as a part of John Ross Productions. Our guests had an amazing time dancing the night away to some great music.
