    Everything You Could EVER Ask For In A Wedding Band

    Robby and the Spotlight Orchestra are an absolute wedding band dream come true. Robby himself is extremely approachable, professional, and above all, deeply passionate about his work. He goes above and beyond to make sure the wedding day is PERFECT, not only for the bride and groom, but also for their respective families. Listening to music is such a personal experience in everyday life; as such, wedding-day music should encapsulate the personal taste of the married couple in a way that is unique to them, in a manner than tells their story. Mine and husband’s stories were so multifaceted, that we didn’t believe that we could find someone who would be able to play all the genres of music we were hoping to hear on our special night. We were looking for someone who knew traditional Jewish music, Israeli music, American Music, Latin music, and Persian music. How EVER were we to find a single human being who would be able to play all the above? Luckily, my husband’s mother heard about Robby and his band through the grape vine, and relayed that he can do “anything your heart desires.” Being the realist I am, I didn’t think that was possible. Robby proved me wrong. Not only did he and the band personally play Jewish, Israeli, American, and Latin music, but he personally tracked down a Persian singer to appeal to my large Persian family. (The Persian singer fit into the band, as if authentically part of it for years. Also, I am convinced that Robby could have learned Persian/Farsi himself if we had asked I’m to, but he wanted to make sure that we had the authentic Persian experience… and he delivered). Robby and the band played multiple components of our wedding - the ceremony, the two cocktail hours, and a VERY long reception with a first-dance that lasted over 2 hours. He and the band were playing nearly straight from 4pm until 11:45pm without skipping a beat. The band played every song with the same energy, enthusiasm, and TALENT then the last. I am truly impressed at the amount of excitement that Robby was able to elicit from the guests. My husband, I, and our families had the night of our lives and it is TRULY thanks to Robby. We feel indebted to him for making our day so amazing. We cannot wait for our next celebration with Robby!!

    Spotlight Music - From Uptown Funk to What a Wonderful World...

    Rob Helperin is the bandleader for Spotlight Music, and he runs everything from a chamber music ensemble for a ceremony, a jazz quartet for cocktails and a full-on 12-piece orchestra with singer(s) for a rock & roll party. The best part is he works extensively with the clients (our son and his bride) to come up with a play list, work out entrances and exits, and can serve as the charming and sophisticated MC throughout the evening's festivities. Highly recommend Spotlight Music.

    Spotlight Music's reply:

    Thanks, Ellen! We had a blast! Great fun party! I know you guys have been waiting a long time through Covid to make this happen. Well worth the wait. So honored to be there with you.

    In your vibrant description of our capabilities, just wanna make sure it's not lost on anyone who likes to go big that 12 is no way our upper limit--we've routinely done ensembles of 20 or more. Truth be told, a 57 piece orchestra was actually the upper limit to date (complete with customized orchestrations we created based on the music chosen by the family). Anyone out there wanna go for 60? The lines are open, people. We have a pandemic to come back from! ;)

    Love to your whole family. You're great.

    Bride: When we met at first, we said we wanted a classy, fancy wedding that felt comfortable and haimish. And that's exactly what people said it was. Everyone said it was the most fun, joyous wedding they'd been to! And you're to thank for most of it. The musicians were amazing and perfect. And Jake is the best. Seriously, it was exactly what we were looking for and what we didn't even know we wanted. Thanks so much for giving us, our families, and our friends an amazing memory of our wedding.

    Groom: You have a gem in Jake, who rolled with everything and facilitated an amazing party (even with the Frisbee and the karaoke). People of every generation had something to dance to, the obligatory parts went smoothly, and Jake's just the nicest dude. We can't thank you, the musicians, and Jake enough for your part in as perfect a night as we could have asked for.
