We hired Momentum to play at our wedding from the ceremony, to cocktails, to reception. They not only did a phenomenal job, they were great to deal with, and totally "got us" as a couple. We had a couple of calls with Larry Eckerling (leader) and a few other top rated Chicago big bands before deciding. One of the deciding factors was that with Momentum, we got to speak with and coordinate with the leader of the band that would be present at our wedding. That's not always the case with other talent groups.

Our wedding was a bit different as we had a traditional Jewish ceremony and also incorporated some of my Chinese heritage during the reception, AND my husband and I are big fans of rap, hip/hop, and R&B. I thought we'd be a challenge for Larry but not at all. They learned traditional Jewish songs for our processional, and then a piano/violin rendition of Kanye West's "Homecoming" for the recessional -- truly one of my favorite moments of the day. They also did a great job working with my day-of-coordinator and the traditional Chinese Lion Dancers to transition between performances seamlessly.

We also had Momentum learn Bruce Springsteen's "When You Need Me" for the father/daughter dance, Big Pun's "Still Not a Player", and my favorite of the night - Bell Biv Devoe's "Poison". Yes, you read that correctly. Some old school BBD. And they killed it!

It was an absolute pleasure performing for you, Lee, and your wonderful guests!
