The Chicago Catz made our wedding! Everyone had a blast and continues to rave about how awesome the band was for our wedding. They really felt the crowd and played songs from all generations...the dance floor was packed the whole night! Richie Davis was very easy to work with and very responsive and attentive to our wedding night agenda. If you want a real band for your wedding, book the Catz ASAP!

The Catz are incredible. They made our wedding! Music was pretty much our most stressed over piece of the wedding puzzle. We are music snobs and thought we wanted a DJ in order to pick the exact songs to be played. Choosing the Catz allowed us the freedom to just enjoy the party. They know how to get people dancing and keep them dancing all night. They also worked with us for the style of the ceremony and cocktail hour and made it exactly what we wanted. They brought in the right musicians for the styles we requested. Richie Davis is so easy to work with, and is not shy to tell you if something is going to work or not. Then, if it isn't, he gives you amazing suggestions for what will and makes everything awesome. Seriously could not have been happier with the Catz. I would choose them again and again.

The Chicago Catz are absolutely INCREDIBLE! We hired them for my 2012 wedding and it was the best decision I made (apart from my choice of groom :) ). The entertainment can really make or break a wedding so I did my due diligence and saw them play at another wedding as well as 2 music venues in the city before I chose them. After I heard them play live the very first time, I just knew they would completely knock all the guests' socks off and I was right. Working with them was also great- they listened to my preferences, and even learned several songs to play at the reception at my father's request. Over a year later, and people are still telling us how great the band was at my wedding!! Thank you Chicago Catz!

Having live music at our wedding was non-negotiable for my husband, and I am glad he was so persistent on that point. Richie and the band were absolutely fantastic! They made our wedding truly memorable. They played music all throughout dinner and dancing. The musicians were superb and from beginning to end were incredibly professional. We received so many compliments from our guests and repeatedly heard that the Chicago Catz were the best wedding band they had ever heard.

Richie was great at working with us to learn songs they did not have in their song list, and also made suggestions for different versions of songs we had selected.

Hiring the Chicago Catz to play our wedding was hands-down the best decision we made throughout the entire wedding planning process.

The Chicago Catz made my wedding 10 times better by being there. Once they started to play at the reception, my guests, young and old, never sat down. We had to request some mellower songs just to get everyone to sit and eat because they were having so much fun! The talk of the wedding the next day was all about the band and how great the music was all night. I couldn't have asked for better. They were a little out of my budget, but I can't begin to explain how well worth the price they were. They were also more than willing to work and adapt the band to fit my budget and still have high quality music. Additionally, they provided me with beautiful music at the ceremony and cocktail hour. I would highly recommend the Catz to anyone who is looking for some serious dancing to go on.
