“Our Dance Floor was Packed. The Best Decision We Made!” – Kate and Ryan

OUR BAND LIVE on March 24!

When you see a band that uses audio recordings as their demo keep in mind you’re not buying a CD. You’re buying a live performance to get your guests to dance. In a studio, they can edit a song endlessly. Who is actually playing? When was it recorded? We don’t need to hide behind the recording. We show you our band playing live at real, recent weddings.  No editing. That’s what you really want. See what you’re really getting. The actual musicians and packed dance floors! 

What Couples Say About Us

"I love live music and knew I wanted a band versus DJ for my wedding. I was recommended DRM and am so happy with how the night went. David scheduled a phone call with me to go over the different options we had for our wedding. We went with a package that had a classical duo during our ceremony, jazz trio during cocktail hour, and a 10 piece orchestra during the reception with David as the emcee and a DJ too. During the planning process, David had a ton of availability to meet with us and answer any questions I had. His band was able to learn new songs for our wedding and he had tons of suggestions for how our night could run smoothly. The ceremony director, Alex, was able to take all my notes and help my ceremony vision come to life. The musicians learned a song on the piano, and they were able to have my step sister sing the processional. The timing was perfect and it played out exactly how I pictured. The reception dance floor was packed all night long! The band played old songs, new songs, etc. The perfect combo to get everyone up and dancing. They even surprised my husband and I who are both teachers with a chalkboard for guests to sign, what a great memory! DRM played such a huge part in making our night memorable and so much fun, I highly recommend!"

Working with David and his team was the easiest part of our wedding planning! My husband and I knew that having great music was the top priority for our reception and the band certainly delivered. From the first day we inquired about David Rothstein and band, he called us literally within the hour to have a conversation. From that point on there was constant communication through phone, email, video calls, and text to finalize all the details about our wedding day. Using his extensive experience from performing at weddings, we were able to draw up the perfect timeline of events. We didn’t give them a lot of direction as to what we wanted played and the best part was that we didn’t need to! His band read the room and changed up music as needed. The band was all of our guest's top compliment and so many people stayed later than we would have expected because of it. David’s energy and enthusiasm kept everyone excited and having fun the entire night. From the announcements, speeches, and traditional songs, David controlled it all and made sure it was seamless. My husband and I are huge Notre Dame fans and David presented us with a Notre Dame football signed by Rudy. All of our guests signed it and we will treasure it forever. We would recommend David Rothstein and Band to anyone and everyone! Absolutely the Best Band We Have Ever Seen!

From our first conversation I knew that David Rothstein and his talented team were the perfect fit to help us create an incredible party. We chose the The State Street package which included the jazz trio for cocktail hour, followed by the jazz trio plus DJ for dinner, and the DJ drums and sax for the post dinner dancing. And let me tell you we are still receiving compliments about the set! I can’t thank David Rothstein and his team enough for making this night absolutely magical. David truly goes above and beyond to get to know the bride and groom. He gifted us a lovely customized Bears bowling ball that symbolizes two activities we enjoy doing together. Not only did David handle the music flawlessly, he also offered other advice to help us navigate our day. My favorite tip from David was that as long as the bride and groom are on the dance floor, the rest of the party will follow. Which could not have been more true the band had us dancing on the floor packed all night..

A Band that goes above and beyond! David and his band are truly amazing. You're probably reading other reviews, thinking "sure, everyone says their band is amazing" - but no, David is truly in a league of his own. First off, David is essentially a wedding planner on his own - throughout the planning process. He provided templates and potential timelines to help us organize our schedule. On the day of the wedding, his band was absolutely spectacular - we had a Jazz Trio during cocktail hour were extremely talented. You may have seen that David likes to do something special for his couples - he is truly SO thoughtful. Our last name is Armor, and my husband is a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan - David got a real steel helmet (from a suit of armor) for us and had all of our guests sign it! It is truly something we will treasure forever. In terms of the band for dancing, I mean, just WOW. Every single musician, from the incredible vocalists, to the DJ who could also rap, to the percussionist on the Bongo drums who also played the Violin, and everyone in between was just SO TALENTED. At one point, the horn section came onto the dance floor and really got the dancing jumpstarted again! It feels like half of my guests came up to me individually to tell me how amazing the band was - both during the wedding and after, and the compliments continue to trickle in. If I could have my wedding again, I'd hire David in a heartbeat I truly can't say enough good things - David Rothstein and his band are the best of the best, both in character and in musical talent!

Best Chicago Wedding Band

Our Price Quote Includes
Everything You Need

Most music companies give you their very lowest price which seems very tempting at first. Then once you sign up, they charge you for an MC, special requests, wireless mics, scheduling help, stage lights and many more things.

They take advantage of the fact that haven’t booked a band before.  It seems like a bargain but you’ll end up paying more and getting worse results. Imagine buying a car then being told you’ll now need to buy a steering wheel and brakes. We’re much more honest. Our pricing packet includes everything you’ll need to get the best results for your wedding! Trust your wedding to a music company with 24 years of thrilled clients. We care about you!

We'll create a personalized gift
which all your guests will sign

We feel it’s important to get to know you more than just the details of your wedding. Your wedding is about who you are as a couple. What makes you unique? What do you like to do together? How did you meet?  While other bands treat you like a date on their calendar we treat you like friends. The gift we create for you is based on something special about you.  Once all your guests sign it, you’ll have an authentic memory from your wedding!

We Celebrate You!

For Example, Paul and Kasey had their first date in Times Square, so I created a poster and changed their ads to include things about them. Including Northwestern Football, Kansas Basketball, and their favorite TV shows Yellowstone and Survivor. I even added a photo of the bar where they had their first date at the very top of the center tower. All their guests signed the poster.  We truly do celebrate you!

We'll Donate Your Flowers

Wedding Wire Chose Us As

My grandparents were married 72 years. He used to bring her a flower from the garden every day. I started this program I call “Share Your Love” in 2007 as a tribute to their amazing marriage. After your wedding, I will load up a portion of your flowers to my car and donate them the next morning to a nursing home or homeless shelter. It’s a free, easy way to share your beautiful flowers with those who are most in need.

We looking forward to
hearing from you soon!
