ABOUT US


Meet The Chicago wedding Band that celebrates you!

What Makes Us
DIFFERENT AND BETTER
Than Any Other
Chicago Wedding Band?

I spent many years playing bass in other top Chicago wedding bands. They were great musicians, but every wedding was pretty much the same. The same songs, same intros… nothing unique to that specific couple. Every wedding was just another date on their calendar. I knew there had to be a better way…

So in 2000, I started our music company with one simple idea, couples like you deserve to get your own wedding made up of the music you love not based on the hottest trends or what the bandleader is used to doing.
You should be able to have a schedule that’s as formal or casual as you want. You should have the best possible musicians to play all the music you love for your wedding.

Even though we’re an incorporated company, you’ll always have access to me. 773.719.7610. I love helping people. My team and I will do everything possible to make sure every step from the first call to the last note is clear, personalized and easy.

With over 20 years of experience, we’ve become home to the highest quality professionals a team of partners and musicians whose work, dedication and talent are invested in our company and in your event. Let’s Get Started!
