I cannot recommend Soda enough! They are the best, most bang-for-your-buck wedding band out there. We had heard them at a wedding a few years back, and the dance floor was never empty. We expected nothing less from our wedding - and the dance floor was packed all night long! The great thing about Soda is they know such a wide variety of songs so it pleases all attendees - from 9 to 99. We were careful about some of the music selections (no rap/electric slide/etc.) and Rob was more than accommodating. He was responsive, fast getting back to us, friendly to work with, and most of all - flexible. We had some changes to the reception schedule and it was a breeze. Their music is absolutely electric - it's so fun to experience their energy and sound, and they are so talented. Compared to other bands we researched, they were the best value for our suburban Chicago wedding. They even learned our first dance song since they didn't know it. I cannot say enough good things about them. Thank you Rob and band for making our wedding the best night of our lives.

"One Of Chicago's Top 5 Cover Bands" - nitelife magazine

Voted one of Chicago’s Top 5 Bands by the readers of Nitelife magazine, Soda has quickly become one of the area’s premier choices for wedding receptions. Soda is featured in the recent publication “The Busy Bride’s Wedding Planning Bible” (available on and given as a free gift to all brides choosing Soda for their reception!). Soda h as also received the “Brides Choice” award here on Wedding Wire the last three years.

In October of 2013 Soda performed for the wedding of Chicago chef and restauranteur Stephanie Izard (Top Chef Season 4 winner and owner of local restaurant favorite "Girl & The Goat"). Stephanie discovered Soda here on Wedding Wire and her review of the band can be found in the review section (10/6/13).

So what makes Soda so special? How about an extensive and diverse playlist that covers some of the best popular music ever written. From Frank Sinatra to Maroon 5, from Patsy Cline to LMFAO and everything in between. Classic Rock, Disco, Motown, 80's New Wave, Punk, Funk, Rap, Hip-Hop, you name it. It's all there for you to choose from. What makes Soda so special? How about an unparalleled attention to detail. With multiple lead singers and their incredible multi-part harmonies, Soda can bring an unmatched authenticity to all your favorite tunes. Take a listen to the sound samples on the Soda website and see if you agree. One of the most common comments about Soda is how much the band sounds like the original artist. A recent bride commented "Oh my gosh, when you guys started playing after the break, I thought it was still the DJ!" 

And that attention to detail extends to every aspect of the band's performance. You'll be in excellent hands. Soda band leader, Rob Loar has MC’d at hundreds of weddings and can provide the support and feedback to help make your evening go as smoothly as possible. It’s like having a wedding planner for the evening of your reception, and it eliminates all the stress and allows you to “be the bride”.

And perhaps the best part of choosing Soda for your reception is the cost. With many wedding bands, especially the larger bands, you’re paying for the extra personnel. Because they may have multiple singers in addition to the instumentalists. But with Soda, the multiple singers also play multiple instruments and that saves dollars. Soda will save on space and volume, as well as saving your budget. You’ll find that Soda’s prices are hundreds of dollars less (or more) than many other bands in the area.

Soda is more than just your average "Wedding Band".  Soda performs nearly 150 dates a year at clubs, festivals, park district concerts, corporate functions, birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, and of course, weddings! Nearly any occasion where you'd want some great live music, Soda will provide the energy and the tunes to get your guests on the dance floor and keep them there the whole night long.

So please take a good look at all the information provided on the Soda website. We believe you'll find exactly what you need to help make the biggest day of your life a night to remember!
