    Incredible Band!

    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!

    Absolutely amazing

    There are not enough nice things I can say about Chris and his band. Chris and his wife were super involved with our wedding from the start. They truly cared about making sure our wedding was a party and that the dance floor was always full. The band was awesome!! The dance floor was packed all night! I would highly recommend Chris and his band!

    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!!
