    Highly recommend!

    We had a great experience with Sarlas Music (Chris & Carol) for our 5/29/21 wedding. We had to make several changes due to COVID and they were flexible and helpful throughout the planning process.

    When it came time for the wedding, they made sure it was a blast from beginning to end! The dance floor was packed the entire night, which is exactly what we were hoping for. They have a huge range in their music selection and were willing to learn/perfectly execute special songs we asked of them. We’ve received so many compliments on the band and are thrilled we chose Sarlas for our big day!

    Great Experience!

    My wife and I used the Sarlas Five band for our wedding on 10/26 and were blown away by the entertainment. Not only was the lead singer Mike and his guys professional and helpful, they did a great job keeping the party going and knew the right songs to play at the right time.

    Planning a wedding is stressful and difficult, but utilizing this band made everything from an entertainment perspective easy for us. The band helped guide us and answer all of our questions from the very beginning of the wedding process through the very end of it. Countless phone calls, emails back and forth and even video conferencing to get to know one another, made the process seamless for us and we greatly appreciated it.

    We highly recommend using the Sarlas Five band for your wedding or next big event. They were fantastic!

    Amazing String Quartet

    We recently hired Artistrings through Sarlas Music to do our indoor February wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We loved them! From my first inquiry, Chris and Carol were both extremely responsive and answered all of my questions. We loved that they have sampled music online as that helped us with picking music. Carol was extremely helpful when we were choosing music for the ceremony and sent recommendations and a planning cheat sheet to help us! The string quartet also learned two songs for us and they turned out beautiful. During the ceremony and cocktail hour, the music was AMAZING. We got so many comments and compliments from our guests that I would recommend Artistrings to everyone I know!

    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! :)

  • Artistrings Wedding Musicians

    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!!
