Best band and experience I could have wished for
Chris and his wife have such a great operation going with Sarlas Music. They were responsive, great at communicating any needs to ensure that my big day was absolutely perfect. MY husband and I are big music people, and the band did not disappoint on the big day. The singers were great and interacted with the people dancing a bit which was nice, the rest of the band was so in tune and played the requested songs perfectly. I could not have asked for a better MC, and band for my bid day. They went from playing the ceremony, to cocktail hour, dinner and then reception and at each phase they were perfectly in tune with the feeling and the flow of the wedding.Sent on 10/16/2019

The Sarlas Rockstars
Chris and Carol Sarlas were an absolute delight to work with! From start to finish, they were detailed, organized, and passionate about making our wedding out of this world. They truly cared about ensuring we had every song we wanted and even let one of our dads play the drums with his band. It was a packed dance floor all night, a true testament to the band for keeping the party going. We are so thankful for them and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a Chicago-area wedding band!Sent on 06/11/2019
Sarlas Music's reply:Thank you, Alexa! It was our distinct pleasure to work with you and Aaron. You two were the rockstars, and your guests cheering all night long and singing to every single tune is something we'll never ever forget. Thank you so much for choosing us to celebrate with you, and please stay in touch!
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!!
