Out of Control Band is nothing short of AMAZING! We had the pleasure of hearing them perform at a cousin's and friend's wedding, before we booked them for our own wedding in October, 2014. George, the band leader, communicates with ease leading up to the wedding day, and on the actual day, the dance floor was PACKED! Our guests raved that Out of Control was the best wedding band they've heard. They can play a variety of music from today's hits to all other decades. We enjoyed them very much and can't wait to hear them at another event in the future! Thanks for everything, from Aubrey and Mark!
I am SO glad we chose Out of Control for our wedding. Everyone was raving about how good they were. Our guests couldn't give enough praise. Many people said they enjoyed that the band played a variety of songs that allowed everyone to dance at some point in the evening. We also had a lot of people tell us that they thought they were listening to a CD of the original artist because the songs were so well executed.
Thank you George and the rest of Out of Control for making the night so amazing!!
they was so amazing, they put the right touches on our reception! the live music was so much better than a DJ
We were referred to Out of Control Band through our photographer, who had heard rave reviews about the band's ability to get everyone on their feet for every song! When we met George and saw his professional, service-oriented, yet flexible approach, we knew he was the right person to work with!
When I provided a list of "must-plays," he took that to heart and integrated all of our guests' favorite songs throughout the evening...from Wooly Bully to Moon River, all the way to Lady Gaga...without skipping a beat! He was an animated MC, making sure all introductions, first dances, and toasts were successful. The dance floor was hopping, even on a Sunday night!
Thank you, George, for making our wedding "Out of Control!"
Out of Control is one of those lesser known bands in Chicago which makes them an unbelievable deal. Live music was one of the most important parts of our wedding, and we were willing to stretch our budget a bit to make sure we got a really amazing band. Then we found Out of Control, and not only could we have an amazing 8 piece band, but we could have them all night long (i.e. through dinner and dancing after) plus a small jazz group during cocktail hour for less than I have found any other band in Chicago. They managed the crowd and the music to a tee. Everyone at some point was dancing. Family members I've never seen dance at weddings were dancing and then after the wedding telling me how much fun they thought the band was. They play every type of music from Sinatra to Bon Jovi to Norah Jones to Justin Timberlake, and more importantly it sounds great.
George was also really great to work with. We had sheets of songs we could mark up to let them know what songs we really wanted to hear and those that we did not want under any circumstance. What was even more wonderful was that they learned our first dance song for us and it also sounded perfect, they even also learned the song my husband danced to with his mom. The only thing that happened was they played a few of the slow songs we wanted to dance to while my husband was away from the dance floor, but that sort of thing happens on a crowded floor when you can't see who it out there. I think everyone was a little sad when they finished their last song since people just wanted to keep on dancing. They even kept their breaks minimal and very short and tried to put more of them during dinner before the dancing really started. In addition, during the breaks, they played a bunch of very recent songs that weren't in their repertoire yet, which was a great touch of some different music to appeal to everyone that was there. The energy of the band was infectious and it was hard not to be on the dance floor. Out of Control was one of our best finds for the wedding, and we didn't even have to go over budget to get an amazing band.
