  • Our wedding was nothing less than an amazing experience thanks to Daveid Rothstein and his band. All our advice before the wedding was to make sure we had good food, entertainment and venue. Although the food and venue were fantastic, everyone raved about the entertainment...it's been over a month since our wedding and I'm still getting calls about what an amazing time our guests had. From the first song to the last song the dance floor was packed. The only complaint was that it had to end. David did a great job communicating, organizing, speaking and keeping things flowing, he hosts a great party!!

    Big thanks to you and Cathrine for the great review! I really appreciate you taking the time to share your enthusiasm with other brides and grooms. I'm so glad that you and all of your guests had so much fun. We loved seeing everybody dancing and having a great time. It truly could have gone until 3 in the morning! I really enjoyed working with you both throughout the entire planning process. When you've got a great couple like you, tons of fun friends, and an awesome band, it all adds up to an incredible night. Thanks again, and I wish you the best for your new life together!

  • Music has always been important to me and my wife. From the moment we got engaged, and started planning our wedding we knew that we wanted to invest in a top talent band. We started looking for various bands around Chicago and noticed a few things in common - no one offered to set up a meeting to discuss our wants in person. This is where David comes in and simply knocks it out of the park. I found David on Google searching for Chicago wedding bands, and from the moment my inquiry was made, he called me and started discussing with us what we were looking for. He offered to meet in person at his Wework location and we gladly accepted. David is super hospitable, kind, listens and remembers key things about his clients. After our meeting, we both knew that David and his band was whom we wanted to play at our wedding. The wedding was a huge success, and David made the process so easy. Every request that we made, David and team made it happen. I cannot recommend David and his band e... Read more

    Thanks for the great review, Ross! I appreciate you walking people through what sets us apart from other Chicago wedding bands. I believe that listening to what people really want on a much deeper level helps us give them exactly what they want. Most bands want to do what's easiest for them instead of going above and beyond to create something special that will make the wedding truly authentic and incredibly fun. I appreciate your enthusiasm and thanks also for following us on Instagram, even after your wedding. I hope we get to celebrate with you and Ellen again some time soon at some of your friends' weddings. It will be tough to compete with yours, that's for sure. Thanks again, Ross!

  • We contacted David Rothstein Music because they came recommended to us and did not disappoint! David is extremely helpful and responsive and really goes the extra mile to make sure everything is easy for you. Our reception had high level energy the whole time thanks to the band and DJ, they're second to none musicians and we had a great time. Couldn't recommend David Rothstein Music highly enough

  • David Rothstein was the best decision we could have made for our wedding! David and his band kept all of our guests on their feet dancing from start to end. He was extremely easy to work with, even attended our final walk-thru with our wedding planner and venue. From the first time we spoke to David, he was professional, energetic and you can tell he cares about the couple getting married. When it comes to weddings, its pretty simple... David is the only way to go!

  • My husband and I can't imagine our wedding without David and his band. David was dedicated to making our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music reflect our musical interests and the vibe we wanted portrayed at our wedding. My husband and I are from Virginia and David helped to make the long-distance planning process seamless. He was always willing to meet in person to talk through logistics when we were in town and he was easy to get a hold of when we were back in Virginia. He cares immensely about getting to know the couple and about adding personal touches to the wedding. There are no words to describe how amazing the musicians were in the all styles quartet at the ceremony, the jazz trio at the cocktail hour and the 10-piece band at the reception. The incredible talent of the accomplished musicians and vocalists is one of the most talked about aspects of our wedding. The band brought incredible energy to our wedding and the dance floor was packed the entire evening. The quali... Read more

    Thanks Stephen! Your wedding was a blast. Your dance floor was jam packed with some of the most enthusiastic and creative dancers we've ever seen.

  • We enjoyed every interaction with David before the wedding because he was so focused on making his music reflect our highest aspirations and he exceeded our high expectations. Our guest gushed about the musical selections, the caliber of the musicians (especially the vocalists) and the fun David created and they are still telling us this weeks later. His mission is to bring everyone together to celebrate your love on your wedding day through music. You can't do better.

    I really appreciate your wonderful review! There were so many special moments from having some very special guests vocalists sitting with the band and some funny thoughtful toasts. We loved keep everybody dancing and adding some personal to help make your big day truly yours! You're 100% right about my mission. I'm glad I was able to make it happen for you and Tom!

  • David and his team did an incredible job. He was in constant communication with us and we didn't have to worry about much. I would recommend him to all. He did the church ceremony, cocktail hour music, as well as the reception. All the guest wrote me the next morning saying how great the band was. I would definitely use David again. He has a great personality.

    Thanks so much, Mike and Raquel. Loved hearing your and your guests' enthusiasm for our band. I really appreciate your kind words for me too. You and your family were so great to work with. The toasts were hilarious! We had a blast learning and playing some Ricky Martin songs for you. So much fun! Looking forward to seeing you at some of your friends' upcoming celebrations. All my best to you both and your families! Thanks again Mike and Raquel!

  • My husband and I are so grateful we hired David Rothstein for our wedding. From the initial consultation to the day of, David was incredibly responsive, thoughtful, and excited to be a part of our big day! Pretty sure we had more compliments on our band than anything else - everyone loved them! We went with the ten piece band, which was perfect for our space and wedding with about 170 people. We also had a string quartet during the ceremony and a jazz trio during cocktail hour. There were tons of band configurations to choose from, and they play pretty much any song or musical style you could think of. We wanted to play some Arabic music during the reception for my husband’s family, and the DJ worked with us to curate a playlist that could be played while the band took their breaks throughout the evening. They are an investment to be sure, but it’s well worth it when you consider how integral the entertainment piece is to the overall wedding experience.

    Hi Sarah Jane, Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We loved working with you and Sami. The fact that we could make your outdoor ceremony happen despite the rain was incredible! Your dance floor was jam-packed all night. There were definitely some very enthusiastic dancers out there including you! We were happy to play all your requests including the Arabic music for Sami's family. Your wedding was truly authentic and so much fun! You guys are a great couple and I loved working with you!! Thanks again Sarah Jane!

  • We couldn't have asked for a better MC/Wedding Band. From beginning to end, David and his team were absolutely first class. Highlights below: - Incredibly responsive. Consistently responds to emails/texts within a matter of hours. As well as proactively communicates as deadlines approach. - Cares about making your big day special. This was David's first time playing at our venue. To ensure all went according to plan, he traveled out to our venue a few weeks prior to our wedding and took videos of the various rooms to plan our set up. - Unbelievable performance. The dance floor was packed the entire night. Multiple friends and family members said it was the best wedding band they'd ever heard. We can't thank the David Rothstein Band enough!

    Thank you so much Adam! I'm glad you enjoyed my work as the Emcee and appreciated our ability to get back to you quickly including visiting the venue. Your wedding was so much fun and authentic. You both were certainly the life of the party. Along with our band, your dancing was one of the biggest factors to getting and keeping your dance floor jam packed all night with everybody out there dancing and singing their hearts out! Looking forward to celebrating with you again at some of your friend's weddings! Much love to you both! Thanks again Adam!

    Thanks so much for the incredibly creative and enthusiastic review Gerri! We loved playing Matt and Natalie's wedding at the Harrington Inn. I've never seen so many people on the dance all night long in that room. We could have played until 3:00am and everyone still would have been dancing. There was so much energy all night. Loved seeing people from all age groups dancing until the very last note! Truly a night everyone who was there will never forget! Thanks again for sharing your enthusiasm in this dynamic review! Hope to celebrate with you and your family/friends again soon Gerri!

  • David and his band did a fantastic job keeping the dance floor full the whole night! So many of our guests came up to us afterwards to tell us how impressed they were with the band and how much fun they had. David kept the reception moving along on time and peppered good humor throughout the evening.

    Hi Nick, Thanks for the great review! Glad to hear how much you and your guests loved the band. Happy I could help with the flow of the wedding with taking care of all the announcements and introductions to keep your wedding schedule right on track. The energy on the dance floor was incredibly high all night. It was a spectacular wedding! Getting to play "Gonna Fly Now" for your Uncle Rocky's birthday was a special moment that made your wedding truly yours. Thanks again for sharing your enthusiasm for our band with everyone! Love you guys!!

  • We heard David Rothstein Music at a friend’s daughter’s wedding and knew they were the band for our daughter’s big day. They brought so much energy and life to our reception and had everyone on the dance floor. Their playlist includes music for all age groups and the bride and groom can request songs before the event. I started following David on Instagram after the wedding and his reasons (especially why demos don’t give an accurate measure of a band) for why his company excels at what they do are true. They are true professionals,So many guests commented and said “Best band ever!”
