You need this band for your wedding

Chicago Catz made our wedding an UNFORGETTABLE celebration!! Their performance was nothing short of exceptional; their energy and stamina were incredible, keeping the dance floor alive all night long. They were not only talented but also extremely accommodating, seamlessly incorporating our song requests into their setlist.

Richie, in particular, was instrumental in ensuring everything ran smoothly. His expertise and attention to detail added a special touch to the entire experience. The band's enthusiasm and dedication truly shone through, making every penny spent well worth it.

Even now, long after the wedding, our guests are still raving about the Chicago Catz. The live band elevated the atmosphere and made our day incredibly special. We couldn't have asked for a better musical ensemble to celebrate with us. THANK YOU Chicago Catz for doing the damn thing and making our wedding an absolute blast!

The Chicago Catz are AMAZING. They provided everything and more for us for our wedding. They are extremely professional and go above and beyond to make your event perfect. They were so thoughtful and really made sure they understood what me and my husband were looking for. Not to mention, the music was incredible. We cannot recommend the Chicago Catz enough. I wish they could come to every party!
