My new wife and I were very pleased with JSH Music Productions. We were nervous about who to chose for musical entertainment for our wedding. Soon after making the decision to hire JSH I felt relieved. Jon at JSH provided knowledge and comfort throughout the process. He took our vision and made suggestions to make it better. The level of service, diverse live music and DJ/MC services provided were fantastic! We had a number of guests compliment our choice in entertainment. I recommend JSH Productions without reservation. - Ben And Bettina, Alisal River Grill in Solvang, CA
We are back from our honeymoon finally! The wedding was fabulous and Stir Father is the majority of that reason! Everyone LOVED the music. People can't stop telling me how great the band was. So much fun!!!! Everything you did was wonderful; the ceremony music, cocktail hour guitarist and the DJ'd dinner music. Flawless execution! I would be happy to recommend you to anyone! Thanks again! - Samantha and Paul, Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbara, CA
We hired JSH Music Productions for a reception band (the Vineyard Byrds) and Jon Harris (the drummer) was also our MC and DJ'd the cocktail hour, the background music for the dinner and music for first dances, etc. Jon was very helpful ahead of time in catering to our music selection and special requirements for the ceremony setup, etc. All the DJ'd music played flawlessly and without interuption. He was a great MC as well. When it came time for the band to play, they brought a great energy into the reception and kept the dance floor packed. All my guests, young and old, enjoyed themselves, and I heard nothing but good things from everybody! Most people raved that it was the most fun they'd ever had at a wedding! - Bryan and Maggie, Santa Margarita Ranch, Santa Margarita, CA
