Simply amazing, everything from beginning to end was taken cate of. Couldn’t be more pleased.
Words can’t begin to describe how happy my husband and I was with David Rothstein. He literally made our wedding what it was and that says a lot for having a pandemic wedding! Can’t wait to use him again when we get to have our larger covid free wedding, he was simply AMAZING! I will use him for life!!!Sent on 04/05/2021
David Rothstein Music's reply:Thanks so much, Stephanie! I really appreciate your kind words! We loved being a part of your wedding last summer. I'm glad we were able to add some personal touches to make it as fun and meaningful as a 300 person wedding. I really enjoyed getting to speak with all of your guests with our live-streaming. It was a very special evening for everyone there, and I'm so glad we were able to be a part of your celebration! I'm looking forward to celebrating with you, Matt, and all of your guests again once we get past covid. You have a friend in me for life and I know we'll have lots of celebrations in the future! All my best to all of you. Thanks again for the super review!

David Rothstein Rocks!
Music has always been important to me and my wife. From the moment we got engaged, and started planning our wedding we knew that we wanted to invest in a top talent band. We started looking for various bands around Chicago and noticed a few things in common - no one offered to set up a meeting to discuss our wants in person. This is where David comes in and simply knocks it out of the park.Sent on 01/07/2020
I found David on Google searching for Chicago wedding bands, and from the moment my inquiry was made, he called me and started discussing with us what we were looking for. He offered to meet in person at his Wework location and we gladly accepted. David is super hospitable, kind, listens and remembers key things about his clients. After our meeting, we both knew that David and his band was whom we wanted to play at our wedding.
The wedding was a huge success, and David made the process so easy. Every request that we made, David and team made it happen. I cannot recommend David and his band enough. Having a solid band is an investment, but he will not disappoint. Your guests will continue to talk about the music, and music is one thing you want remembered at a wedding. I highly, highly recommend David Rothstein to play at your next event!!!
David Rothstein Music's reply:Thanks for the great review, Ross! I appreciate you walking people through what sets us apart from other Chicago wedding bands. I believe that listening to what people really want on a much deeper level helps us give them exactly what they want. Most bands want to do what's easiest for them instead of going above and beyond to create something special that will make the wedding truly authentic and incredibly fun. I appreciate your enthusiasm and thanks also for following us on Instagram, even after your wedding. I hope we get to celebrate with you and Ellen again some time soon at some of your friends' weddings. It will be tough to compete with yours, that's for sure. Thanks again, Ross!

DRS is Fantastic!
David and his team were invaluable. They were responsive leading up to the wedding, helped us stay on track, and played a great set that kept everyone on the dance floor. Professional, personable, and fun. My wife and I are grateful for having connected with DRS. I highly recommend them. They're the quintessential wedding band that you'd want at your own. We wouldn't have a changed a thing.Sent on 09/27/2020
David Rothstein Music's reply:Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We loved playing for you and Adrienne's wedding! Love to see so many people dancing all together! We really enjoyed working with you to find the perfect songs for your ceremony. I'm glad we were able to add the steel drum player for your cocktails to give a more personal touch for Adrienne's family! The Hora dance set was truly epic, even for your non-Jewish guests. You both were so much fun to work with. I wish you both all the best for your new adventures ahead. I hope we get to celebrate again with some of your family and friends! Thanks again, Bennett!
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!
