The Chris Sarlas Orchestra was, simply put, absolutely phenomenal. I truly cannot say enough about our experience with them. They were the highlight of the reception and we have yet to stop receiving compliments on how incredible the band was.
Chris himself is the perfect balance of light hearted, flexible and relaxed yet professional, confident and efficient. From day one of working with him we were blown away. Chris wanted to know what we wanted but he was also unbelievably helpful with offering great suggestions from his unmatched experience. We never felt as if Chris was a vendor we hired, rather someone who was genuinely interested in making our day just the way we wanted and a lot of fun! His enthusiasm, vision and organization allowed us to enjoy the reception without any concern at all.
The band members are extraordinarily talented and it’s obvious they were having a good time performing as well. They played a variety of music and Chris allowed for some on the spot suggestions as well. Everything was perfectly smooth and no detail was forgotten. Our wedding day was perfect in more ways than one and we have so many blessings to be thankful for. We consider Chris and his colleagues to certainly be one of those blessings.

When we were starting our wedding planning we were open to a lot of things. Different bands, however, were never an option. Sarlas Music was the vendor that quite frankly dictated the date of our wedding. We were not about to pick a date that Chris and Carol weren't available! You want a band who knows how to work the room and gets your guests excited about being at your wedding....these guys do that and MORE. Chris and Carol are a dream team, their band members are energetic, outgoing and truly there to make your wedding magical. I cannot say enough good things about this group as a whole. From the Greek music to the American dancing, our guests (and us!) absolutely loved everything. Chris and Carol are creative, unbelievably warm and welcoming, and beyond accommodating. I mentioned to Chris that I had a cousin who sings and he arranged for her to sing with his band during our reception---it was incredible! Call them, I promise, it will be the most genuine conversation you have while planning your wedding and the easiest decision to book! Chris and Carol, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we absolutely could not have imagined celebrating without you two!

We cannot say enough about the Chris Sarlas Band. They made our wedding reception absolutely amazing! Chris and Carol worked with us from the start and spent hours making sure we had the vision we wanted. On the night of the wedding, the band brought so much energy and excitement to the dance floor. We had multiple guests asking "who is this band and where did you find them?!" Every musician in the group is so talented. The most incredible part of the Chris Sarlas Band is that they seemed genuinely happy and excited to be celebrating with us. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the most grateful bride and groom! Our wedding would not have been the same without the Chris Sarlas Band- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
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.
Chris is the ultimate professional and his band is AWESOME! :)
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!!
