Wedding in Solvang, CA on 10/04/2008
"My new wife and I were very pleased with JSH Music Productions (JSH). We were nervous about who to chose for musical entertainment for our wedding. Soon after making the decision to use 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 services provided were fantastic. We had a number of guests compliment our choice in entertainment. I recommend JSH Productions without reservation. "

Wedding in Santa Ynez, CA on 08/02/2008
"JSH Music Productions played at my wedding reception on August 2nd, 2008. I can honestly say that having such a great band really made our wedding more enjoyable. I definitely danced the night away. I overheard numerous guests commenting on how great our band was. My husband and I could not have picked a better band for our wedding.
JSH's versatility really helped us with our first dances. Since this band also has DJ equipment, we were able to dance to the songs we wanted, by the specific artists we wanted. Also, they have great lighting equipment that makes the dance floor very enviting for all ages.
I highly recommend this band!"

Birthday Party (Adults) in Ojai, CA on 04/13/2013
"I hired Spun Honey to play my 40th birthday party, and they sounded great. Their mix of country, classic rock and southern rock was exactly what I wanted. Also Jon DJ'd when the band took breaks, and he played catchy tunes that got everyone dancing. I was super impressed by both the professionalism and the rockin attitude displayed by this band. They exceeded my expectations, and many of my friends told me that the band "made" the party. They get my highest recommendation."
