Worth every penny!
My husband and I are so grateful we hired David Rothstein for our wedding. From the initial consultation to the day of, David was incredibly responsive, thoughtful, and excited to be a part of our big day! Pretty sure we had more compliments on our band than anything else - everyone loved them! We went with the ten piece band, which was perfect for our space and wedding with about 170 people. We also had a string quartet during the ceremony and a jazz trio during cocktail hour. There were tons of band configurations to choose from, and they play pretty much any song or musical style you could think of. We wanted to play some Arabic music during the reception for my husband’s family, and the DJ worked with us to curate a playlist that could be played while the band took their breaks throughout the evening. They are an investment to be sure, but it’s well worth it when you consider how integral the entertainment piece is to the overall wedding experience.Sent on 08/08/2019

David Rothstein Music's reply:Thanks so much for the incredibly creative and enthusiastic review Gerri! We loved playing Matt and Natalie's wedding at the Harrington Inn. I've never seen so many people on the dance all night long in that room. We could have played until 3:00am and everyone still would have been dancing. There was so much energy all night. Loved seeing people from all age groups dancing until the very last note! Truly a night everyone who was there will never forget! Thanks again for sharing your enthusiasm in this dynamic review! Hope to celebrate with you and your family/friends again soon Gerri!

The party never stops with David Rothstein Music! All-night-long dancing and entertainment that will leave a lasting impression on your guests!
There is only one way to go for wedding reception music: David Rothstein Music! The performers are incredible. They play great traditional wedding songs along with current hits that make everyone, including the shy people in the family, gravitate to the dance floor. David Rothstein Music is unfamiliar with those awkward lulls at a reception when the dance floor is empty. David keeps things going all night long by interacting with the bride and groom and their family and friends. He's funny, entertaining, and loves what he does. He'll even dance with you! Our guests can't stop talking about how great the band was and how awesome David is. Trust me on this, you will have the time of your life if you hire David Rothstein Music.Sent on 05/31/2019
David Rothstein Music's reply:Thanks so much Matthew! Your wedding was incredibly fun! You and Anne were truly the life of that party. Having your wedding at the Notre Dame football stadium only added to the fun! The combination of your hilarious, enthusiastic guests, your endless energy and our full band made your dance floor jam packed all night. Playing your grandma Lois' favorite song, It Had to Be You and having her dance with you was one of my all-time favorite moments of my career. You're an amazing couple! Thanks again for the great review. Much love to you both and your families!
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!
