incredibly personalized

From the very moment we reached out to David to check on his availability, he was nothing but professional and incredibly pleasant to work with. You can tell that David believes with every ounce of his spirit that you should have the best wedding ever and he will go above and beyond to ensure that he and his band provide you with that. What makes David Rothstein and his band stand out is that he truly takes the time to learn about you as a couple so that on your wedding day you are getting something incredibly personalized. All of our guests danced/sang to 6+ solid hours of incredibly talented singers and musicians, everyone was blown away at how amazing every single member of the band was.

The Purpose of cocktails is to change the mood from the formality of your wedding ceremony to a much more relaxed social atmosphere.

Recomended Ensembles:

    • Jazz Trio (Piano, Bass and Sax) will provide relaxing, luxurious jazz for background music. You and your guests will be able to talk comfortably. The trio takes up a small amount of space and becomes part of the full wedding band for dinner and/or dancing.

The purpose of dinner is to perform the standard wedding traditions as well as the serving of the meal itself. This is the main body of your wedding. Dinner starts as soon as the doors to the ballroom are opened and your guests enter, not when they serve the food.

The biggest factors that will help or hurt your dinner schedule is:
1. Getting all the guests inside the room and the bridal party lined up.
2. The number and length of the toasts.
3. The speed of the food service.

Recommended Ensembles:

  • Jazz Trio (Piano, Bass and Sax)
  • 7 or 10 Piece Orchestra (Dancing between Courses only )

Dinner lasts between 1 1/2 to 2 hours and includes:

  • Introduction of the Bridal Party, Bride and Groom
  • Toasts
  • Blessing over the Meal
  • Cake Cutting
  • First Dance, Father/Daughter, Mother/Son Dances, Guests Dancing (Dancing Between Courses Only)


Dancing Between Courses Schedules Includes All Activities Described Above :

  • First Dance
  • Father/Daughter Dance
  • Mother/Son Dance
  • Guests Dance after Formal Dances
  • Guests Dance Between Salads and Main Course

Midwest Style Schedule will not have any dancing until the entire meal is completed:

Dancing lasts between 3 to 4 hours, but can extend as late as the venue will allow.
It’s always better to book extra time with the original contract as overtime is a higher rate. The typical break schedule is playing for 1 hour and breaking for 15 minutes. The band will provide break music.
Now that all the formalities of your wedding are completed it is simply time to celebrate and dance with all your guests.
The more you dance, the more your guests will too!

Quick Tip: To get all your guests dancing put your bar inside the ballroom instead of in another area.
