David and his group were the absolute best. We've been getting so many of our friends and family telling us that our wedding was the best that they've been to, not just because of the love in the room from all of the guests, but the love and energy David and his band brought with them to the dance floor as well. The groups genuine enthusiasm and excitement set them way apart. We would highly recommend David Rothstein music to any bride and groom!

As the Father of the Bride, I took on the responsibility of finding potential bands based on referrals, Wedding Wire and The Knot to fit in with the budget I had in mind. After a short time, I began to discover that the cost was going to be a bit more than I expected to get the BIG sound that we all wanted.
We narrowed it down to a few of the premier bands in Chicago. After going to see the David Rothstein Orchestra in person, it quickly became a no-brainer. It is simply not possible to find a better sounding Band/Orchestra. While we focused a lot on Motown dance music, but the three vocalists are so versatile, they made a variety of music sound very authentic. Every musician in the band are as good as it gets.
They kept people on the dance floor the entire time. There is nothing worse than planning a wedding for months and going through all the expense, than to see the crowd thin out early. However, the band is so entertaining that they will keep your guests to the end. If they are not dancing…..they will stay to listen and watch them perform. I can’t emphasize how big of a deal this was for us.
Doing the wedding over again, there is nothing that I would change. However, if I had to keep to a stricter budget, I would build the entire budget around David Rothstein. They are worth every penny!!! Months or years after the wedding, people are not going to remember the flowers or even the food, but they will remember how great the band was. We have received non-stop compliments from our guests regarding the band.
David was terrific to work with from the very start. He was extremely responsive before and after we booked them. You can really find out a lot about a person when you see how they support you after they have your money. We trusted David from the start and he delivered in spades!!!
After the wedding, you might have regrets regarding some decisions you made, but booking David Rothstein will not be one of them!

Absolute pleasure to work with!

David Rothstein Music brings to the table the highest level of musicianship and professionalism in the Chicago area wedding market today.

David Rothstein Music was here for a large wedding in July and they were fantastic! What impressed me the most was their setup. A band setup can be very obtrusive to a formal, elegant wedding setup, but the bands setup was so professional and only complemented the wedding's decor. Would love to have them back!

The best. They have a lot of options -- different kinds of bands for receptions, trios and such for ceremonies. David Rothstein is the emcee of the evening -- focused on making sure the reception flows well. It always does. True caring professionals.
