Organized, charismatic, and brought the party

We told Chris and his team that we wanted a great dance floor for our wedding and they delivered! All of our planning calls with Chris left us feeling confident and excited about our upcoming wedding day. During the reception, we let the band do their thing and didn鈥檛 stop dancing for 3 hours. Phenomenal experience!!

Highly recommend Sarlas Orchestra!

Chris Sarlas and his incredible band brought the party to our Chicago wedding! From the initial phone call with Chris, we knew we wanted to work with him. He understood what we wanted out of our wedding and constantly assured us he would deliver鈥攁nd that he did. Our dance floor was PACKED until the very last moment of the night. The number one comment we have heard from our guests was how incredible the band was. We were so impressed by Sarlas Orchestra and have already recommended them to many friends. Thank you, Chris!!

Highly Recommend this Band!

From early planning conversations to post-event, Chris Sarlas was engaged in our wedding at an exceptionally high level of professionalism and personal caring. The combination of Greek and American music at the reception was perfect, and the band was able to pivot on a dime based on what was happening on the dance floor. No detail escaped them, and our wedding planner said this band was a dream to work with. We had numerous nuances and special highlights at the reception, and everything was executed flawlessly by the band and emcee. Do not hesitate to select them--they will do a fabulous job for you!

I have known and worked with Sarlas Music for several years at weddings, cocktail parties and galas. Chris and Carol are extremely professional as well as being amazing musicians. They play all types of music and have all sizes of bands. We hired them for our fundraising Gala held at Navy Pier this past May and they were just fantastic. We had a trio during cocktails and a big band before, during and after dinner for some dancing prior to the act we brought in from Greece. Quite frankly, they outplayed the other group by a million miles. The vocalists were so good and when they switched to Greek dancing music after the auction... let's just say there was a LOT of dancing. Highly recommend them for any event.

If you want a packed dance floor from beginning to end, this is the band to call. The vocalists are almost too good to be true. Chris is the most honest, hard-working, talented bandleader you will find, and he will work tirelessly to make sure that your wedding is perfect. He returns calls promptly, is the nicest guy you will ever meet, and is an incredible MC who will get your guests up and on their feet, dancing the night away. They offer literally hundreds of live video clips so you can watch them from the comfort of your own home. Look no further. This band is IT!!
