    Have worked with the Catz MANY times, highly recommend!

    If you need a band, look no further!! I am an event planner in Chicago and I've worked with Chicago Catz many times. I chose to hire them for my own wedding because I feel they're very trustworthy, they're very good people (sounds weird but this is not always common with bands.....), they're flexible, and last but not least, they throw a killer dance party *every time*.

    I had to postpone my own wedding (due to Covid-19 venue restrictions) and Richie was very fast at communicating our options and explained that they have NO postponement fees. You can ask any band, they ALL imply fees, so that in of itself makes myself and my clients feel like they're being taken care of and are not going to end up with some insane bill post wedding. I appreciated Richie's eagerness to look into other dates to make sure we could secure a future date that works for all the vendor team.

    Every time I've worked with Chicago Catz, the musicians have a lot of energy, they dance and sing and interact with guests [from afar] and they have really fun transitions between songs. The only time we see a break on the dance floor is when the band takes their break, but that's not a bad thing so everyone can refresh, grab a drink, catch their breathe and head back shortly after.

    I look forward to continuing working with Richie not only for my wedding, but for all of our weddings that are coming up this year! Thanks Richie & Chicago Catz for being so wonderful!!!

    -Danielle & Phil

    The best wedding band ever!

    Do not walk, but run as fast as you can to book the Chicago Catz for your party, whether it is a wedding, Bar Mitzvah or corporate event. There is no better band on the planet to get your guests on the dance floor and keep them there all night.
    We heard the Catz at a wedding several years ago, and took their card. We knew that someday, when our son got married, we were going to hire that band. Their music is phenomenal – a mix of Motown, funk and contemporary – and so fun to dance to and sing along with. The musicians are the best in Chicago, and the vocalists are incredible. One of them appeared as a contestant on The Voice.
    Richie Davis, the bandleader, is a pleasure to work with. He is extremely quick to respond to questions in emails and phone calls, and gives great advice. Richie will listen to what you want – we wanted a few slow songs – and he will suggest the perfect ones, from old standards to the latest top hits. I've lost count of the number of guests at our son's wedding who told me that the Chicago Catz was the best wedding band they've ever heard. Those included several people who recently got married and had hired other bands! I also had a friend thank me for hiring the Catz, because her husband NEVER dances at a wedding, and he danced nonstop at ours. There is no higher praise than that.
    The key to a great party is a high energy band which gets people out of their seats onto the dance floor, and keeps them there. Richie Davis and his crew of Chicago Catz are that band. If they are booked on the date you want to plan your party, then you'll have to change your date!
