The Latest Review

got everybody on the dance floor

10/08/2014

After we got engaged my fiancé and I sat down and decided that above all else we wanted our guests to have an incredible experience that they would remember. One of the major ways that we knew this would be possible was by getting a live band for our reception. We did our homework and searched and searched for the right band, the search was over after we met with David. He was extremely personable and professional throughout the entire process and truly put us at ease. The videos on the website give you a fraction of just how good they are. At the end of night we both could not have been happier with how David kept the night running smoothly and the band got everybody on the dance floor. The next day, and still to this day, we have not stopped receiving endless compliments about how incredible the band was. Do NOT hesitate to book this band you won’t regret it!

Read Our Story

David Rothstein Music was started with the belief that each couple has their own personality, their own story, and special things about them, which make them unique from any other couple in the world. I want to provide you with a wedding schedule that fits your personality and your priorities. We will play songs that are meaningful to you and your guests as well as pack your dance floor. You’ll get creative and thoughtful personal touches to make your wedding an expression of who you are and what you love. We can’t wait to hear your story. Call us at 773.244.1239 or fill out the inquiry form.

I started our music company in 1999 after playing bass for several years with many other top wedding bands. I found they were treating clients more like account numbers and dates on their calendar instead of real people. A bandleader actually said once he did not remember who the bride and groom were until he showed up to the wedding. I felt that brides and grooms like you deserve something better.

My goal is for you and your guests to say, “this was the best wedding we’ve ever been to”, not just because you had a packed dance floor and an organized schedule but because it was so authentic to you as a couple. We’d love to hear from you and answer all your questions. Call David @ 773.244.1239 or fill out the inquiry form. Thanks so much!
