Our award winning band features incredibly talented vocalists that will blow you and your guests away!
You will work directly with David throughout your planning process. At your wedding David’s 100% focus is to Emcee for all your announcements and work directly with you and your vendors. With other Chicago wedding bands, you have to walk through the crowd up to the bandstand and try to speak to the bandleader while they’re playing drums, sax or singing. They’re forced to stay on stage. David will be available to speak with you and your vendors anywhere in the room at any time. The band can continue playing uninterupted while you and all your guests are dancing. He’ll be able to solve any problems that come up without disturbing the band’s performance. All your vendors will be in the right place at the right time. He is an expert and hosts one of the top Radio shows and Podcast in the nation, Wedding 101. It’s like having a designated hitter while the other team/band has a pitcher that has to bat and pitch.
“David was a wonderful MC. His energy is contagious and his passion for the job is so obvious that it makes the party that much more fun and organized.”
– Aggie Sparrow, Cafe Brauer, Chicago Il
Voted the Most Charitable
Wedding Vendor in The Nation
On 2.10.16 David Rothstein Music was voted as the Most Charitable Wedding Vendor in the Nation at an awards ceremony in Washington DC. There were 700 nominations from across the country. DRM has also won the Shining Star Award here in Chicago. David and his volunteers hand deliver the floral arrangements the day after the weddings to nursing homes and homeless shelters with our Share Your Love Flower Donation program. Thanks to all the brides and grooms who have donated their flowers over the past 9 years. While DRM is on the cutting edge of technology we believe weddings should be a very human experience.
Susan and Michael love gardening. So their gift was a watering can which all their guests signed at the wedding. Hopefully it will help them to grow a beautiful garden of love and support for their new marriage!
Alana and Steven are big fans of Woody Allen. So we found an original poster from his Oscar Winning movie, "Annie Hall" and replaced the faces of Woody and Diane Keaton with theirs. Then we listed them as Best Bride and Groom and added title Best Original Wedding. We replaced the cast names with the names of the bridal party. Since the groom had an 8 year old daughter, Lily, we added her as Best Supporting Daughter. We listed all the vendors at the bottom. Alana and Steven and all their guests loved it. This was one of my favorite gifts we've ever done!
When we choose a gift for a couple, we refer to a variety of information. In this case, we used their diverse jobs. The groom Brian is a carpenter. The bride Nora owns a shoe store in Naperville. So to combine their jobs, we bought them wooden shoes from Holland Michigan and had their name and wedding date engraved on the side.
All their guests signed the shoes which we gave to them as a special gift and symbol of their new life together.These boots WEREN'T made for walkin'!
In May of 2012, Brian and Carlee got married. This couple really loves the Cubs. As a lifelong Cubs fan myself, I wanted to find something special for my fellow die-hard cubs fans.
After searching the various souvenir stores by Wrigley Field, I found this amazing toaster that actually burns the Cubs logo right on the toast. After their guests signed the toaster and I gave it to them, of course, during the toasts! This gift shows that we have a very rye sense of humor!
Johnny and Nicole both are HUGE fans of Seinfeld. So for their gift we created a poster from Seinfeld and replace "Seinfeld" with his last name "Sisk" which we turned into "Siskfeld". We then changed the photos of Jerry and Elaine of their photos then added the venue name and wedding date.
Deanna and Patrick love the Blackhawks and enjoy having their friends over to watch the games. For their special gift, we got them this Blackhawks bar stool which all their guests signed!
We played the wedding for Chicago News legend Art Norman and his new wife Terri. They were both big Chicago Bears fans. This is an official NFL helmet which their guests sign. Everyone in the Chicago news media was there, even reporters from CNN like Robin Meade. A super fun night! Go Bears Go!
Chris and Kara are huge fans of superheroes. He loves and Batman and she's a fan of Superman. Chris and his groomsmen even wore Batman cufflinks and socks. We're big superhero fans too so for their special gift, we hired a Chicago caricature artist named Chuck Senties to create this super rendition of the dynamic duo. All their guests signed the poster! Chris and Kara were SUPER excited!
August 14th's bride and groom, Kelsey and Erik love boating, so I went to a Marine Boating store in the city and bought them a Life Saver which all their guests signed! The Love Boat!
