Congratulations!!! Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days of your life. It is a celebration of love and happiness. Through the years, Music Connection has helped create an elegant, yet fun atmosphere for hundreds of brides and grooms throughout the Northeast Ohio area.

Founder, owner, and wedding specialist, Jim Rio, performs most wedding receptions (unless another Music Connection DJ is requested). Jim takes the time to get to know each couple before the “big day”. Jim meets with each and every couple before the reception to go over the specific details of their special day, including time of events, introduction of names, music selection and special requests. Our helpful wedding guides sent out to you before the reception provides you with ideas and suggestions to help create what you have envisioned in making your dreams come true. Jim understands that it is your wedding and you should have it done your way. He listens to you and makes certain everything is done to fulfill your wishes. Jim also goes out of his way at the reception hall to accommodate the bride and groom and works closely with the caterer, photographer, videographer, and other service providers so you can relax and enjoy your evening.

Jim acts as the Master of Ceremony for your reception. He always arrives professionally dressed in a tuxedo at every reception. And, rest assured, your requested songs will be heard from a state-of-the-art high quality digital sound system that looks as good as it sounds. Jim handles the details, you enjoy the day!

Here is what couples have to say about Jim Rio and Music Connection:

Dear Jim,

Just wanted to take a minute to thank you for all the time and effort you put in to making our wedding reception so special. Our wedding day was perfect and we owe it all to you! I was amazed at how smoothly you kept everything going and how well you were able to incorporate all of my special “requests”. Many people complimented us on our DJ selection – from the “quiet” dinner music, to the special dances, to the Irish dancing, Karaoke on stage – and more. Everyone had a great time! I hope you enjoyed being our DJ – because I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed having you. Thanks again for everything! We’ll be sure to tell our friends and relatives (although most saw for themselves) what a great DJ you are.

Thanks again!

Love, Kelly and George Vlosich

Dear Jim,

Laura and I just wanted to thank you so much for the fantastic job you did for us on our wedding night. Even though we didn’t really give you a list of music we wanted to play, the reception turned out great. Your ability to read the crowd and keep us on schedule made the evening go far beyond our expectations. We are so glad to have found you and we would recommend you to anyone!

Thanks again,

Mark and Laura Malendez
