Here is what some people have to say about Music Connection:

We have contracted Music Connection as our entertainment for our teen dances that we put on monthly, throughout the school year. They have worked with us for the past four years. I can’t say that I have had the opportunity to work with a more professional company then working with Music Connection. The kids are having a great time and the evening’s entertainment is well thought out to keep the party hopping and age appropriate. The sound system is awesome and the interaction with the crowd is always fun. We have increased our ticket sales from the past few years as the dances have caught on. I could not ask for a better company to entertain our kids in Strongsville.

Dear Jim Rio,

On behalf of the Girl Scouts in North Ridgeville, Ohio, I would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the outstanding performance at the Father/Daughter Dance.

The dance was an overwhelming success. The girls and the fathers have been flooding my e-mail with compliments on your behalf.

It was an extreme pleasure working with you and we look forward to many more events in the future.

Thank you for making this a memorable event for the girls and their fathers!

Father/Daughter Dance Chairperson

We have used Music Connection for our Special Events at the Independence Civic Center for many years now. They always do a great job in providing entertainment for both kids and adults! We love the interaction that the DJ has with the audience from teaching line dances to the contests and prize give-a-ways! Music Connection is always professional and great to work with. I would highly recommend their services, and I repeatedly do because I am always asked.
We don’t use anyone else when it comes to entertainment!

Dear Jim,

On behalf of the Magnificat’s Mother’s Club and the Class of 2005, we would like to extend our appreciation and thanks for helping make the Dad Prom a wonderful success! You and Music Connection have been an important part of our wonderful annual event for the last few years! You do such a great job in “breaking the ice” for the Dads (especially!) and daughters, and making them feel comfortable. We especially love how you get everyone out there on the dance floor! We received many compliments from the Dads and daughters that attended – they really had a memorable time!

Thanks again for all your help!

Dear Jim,

We wanted to thank you so much for entertaining the C.Y.C. (Cleveland Yacht Club) this year. You are so much fun for the children and adults. The Christmas Party, Father Daughter Dance, and Father’s Day Picnic were all a big success! You’ve been a joy to work with, always professional, and look forward to seeing you again next year. Thank you again!

Jim and Ricky,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work at the party. Everyone had a wonderful time thanks to you both. The “Bigs and Littles” and well as the staff and parents loved the contests. I received so many compliments about you both. Thank you for making the party fun and memorable!
