Is it your delicious coconut shrimp appetizers? The quality of the envelopes on your invitations? Or, how much fun they had at your wedding? If they talk about anything other than how much fun they had, your wedding wasn’t that great after all. While there are many Chicago wedding bands to choose from, it is important to make the best choice for your big day. These are the top 10 things to look for online when choosing the right Chicago wedding band for your wedding.
QUALITY. Naturally, you want the band that sounds the best at your Chicago wedding. How long has your Chicago wedding band played together? Music that sounds great doesn’t simply come from a group of talented individuals. A great band is made up of great players with years of experience playing with each other. The David Rothstein Music band has been playing together for over 20 years. You can trust that they’ll sound incredible and your dance floor will be packed until the last note.
BAND LEADER. How charismatic is your Chicago wedding band’s leader? Can he or she keep the dance floor packed all night? You want your band leader to work side by side with your other vendors. He should look out for them and make sure they’re ready to go before any announcements are made, and be available to answer any of your questions throughout the night. Our band leaders know how to keep the party going all night long and your guests will talk about their performance for years.
MEDIA. What impression does their website give to you? Does it have helpful content, recent photos, videos, and reviews? Are the photos from recent events, or done in a studio? If you don’t see the reactions of people in the crowd, who cares how good the band looks on stage or the kinds of recordings they can make in a studio? What you’re buying is the reaction of a crowd.
REVIEWS. How recent are they? Do they include specific names and dates for past weddings? Many Chicago wedding bands only show you their very best reviews. What you want to see is all of their reviews. So be sure to check not only on their websites, but on other sources like The Knot, Wedding Wire, and Google. To learn what a company is about, read a variety of reviews and see what people are consistently saying. How versatile is their song list? Are they willing to learn new songs just for your wedding?
AWARDS. Lots of Chicago wedding bands have won awards, but what you want to find are awards that separate them from other bands; for example, our “Most Charitable Wedding Vendor” award from Wedding Wire. Also look for how consistently a band wins those awards. We have won Best of The Knot and Best of Wedding Wire 14 years in a row!
PERSONAL TOUCHES. What does your Chicago wedding band do to personalize your wedding? DRS will learn new songs just for your wedding. We specialize in making your big day about you, not about current trends or what’s easiest for our musicians. Your Chicago wedding band has to go above and beyond to make your special day unforgettable and unique to you. Ask them for specific stories of how they helped a recent couple.
PRICING. Many Chicago wedding bands show you their cheapest price and then, little by little, require lots of additional fees. Our prices are all-inclusive. When you choose DRS, you can trust that everything is taken care of for you. No hidden fees!
PROFESSIONALISM. On your big day, you need to know that everything is in its right place. You don’t want to stress over your wedding flowing smoothly. You want to be able to relax and enjoy it! Included for free with any of our ensembles is a separate emcee to take care of announcements and transitions. We don’t just provide you with the highest quality Chicago wedding band. We provide you with peace of mind on your big day!
CUSTOMER SERVICE. How quickly will they get back to you? Many Chicago wedding bands have lots of experience when it comes to sales. Then, once they have your contract signed, their response time slows dramatically. Our music company will be there for you from the first phone call to the last note. Feel free to contact David any time. Call/text: 773-719-7610 or email us at email@example.com
CONSISTENCY. A great product or service has a high level of consistency. When you go to Starbucks, you know exactly what you will be getting regardless of where you are in the world. The same thing has to be true of your Chicago wedding band. The high level of quality must be found in everything they do, at every wedding, over the span of many years. David Rothstein Music has worked hard over the last 20 years to give our brides and grooms the highest quality music, customer service, and consistently high level of care to each and every wedding we play for. We would love to do the same for you. Say Yes to DRS! Schedule your appointment today!
