If I could give Chicago Catz better than a 5 out of 5, I would! To say they were spectacular does not even begin to describe the evening. Every person I've talked to who attended the wedding RAVED about them. Here are some of the things people said..."OMG where did you find them? I've never been to an event with such a great band." "Did they ever take a break? We danced all night long." "They really knew how to work with the crowd. They always played just the right song."

Thank you Chicago Catz...you were truly amazing!

If we could give the Chicago Catz 100 stars we would! We heard stellar reviews of the band from a family friend and after we saw them perform in person at Nick's Beer Garden we were blown away. The Catz are an extremely talented, energetic and fun band with a broad repertoire. They can play anything from The Temptations to The Rolling Stones to Prince to Michael Jackson to Mackelmore. From the very beginning the Catz were a joy to work with, especially Richie the bandleader. Richie was extremely professional and the most responsive of all of our vendors. He was also very helpful when we were narrowing down our song list and we enjoyed bouncing ideas off one another when working on the set lists. When our wedding day (10/31/15) finally came we couldn't have been happier with how things turned out. The Catz were AMAZING and kept the dance floor packed for three hours! My husband and I were having so much fun we may have left the dance floor for 10 minutes at the most. We cannot thank the Catz enough, especially Richie, for making the best day of our lives to date also the most fun and memorable. W are still receiving endless comments from our wedding guests about how wonderful the Catz were, especially that they were by far the best wedding band they'd ever heard. If you are considering booking a band for any occasion, you should look no further than the Catz. You won't find anything better, we promise.

The Catz are the best wedding band you can ever book in Chicago. They absolutely rocked it. They made a special version of our first dance song, played songs that appealed to people of ALL AGES, learned modern tunes, and even played a country song at my new husband's request. They are professional and there to throw a really good party. Richie is a dream to work with. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG!

My husband and I were looking for an amazing band that would play a ton of Motown music and would keep people dancing the entire night. The Chicago Catz delivered and we couldn't have been happier with them. When we met prior to the wedding and explained what we wanted, they promised to focus mostly on classics/ Motown music, but also asked that we trust them to do what they needed to do to keep people dancing. They learned the songs for our ceremony, first dance, father daughter etc. and played them beautifully. From the moment the reception began people were dancing, and when they played their last song our guests actually chanted "ONE MORE, ONE MORE," until they played one last song. Hands down the music made the evening, and people are still talking about our band. Absolutely incredible!

If we could give the Catz 6 stars we would! We hired them for our wedding and it was, without question, the best investment we made for the entire day. From the first time we spoke with Richie, the process of working with the Catz was phenomenal. They are professional, reliable, flexible and an incredibly fun & friendly group.

Now, onto the show - they ROCKED and our had dance floor packed the entire night. They are amazing performers who perfectly blended together oldies & new, hip hop & pop, rock & funk. They've got a great ability to read the floor and put together a fantastic set list. Richie & the band even learned a few songs for our day and we were blown away by how they came out. No question this is the band you should hire!!

We had the pleasure of having the Chicago Catz perform for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with their performance. They were, without a doubt, one of the major highlights of our wedding. Their performance was unbelievable, we had guests tell us they felt like they were at a concert! Not only was their performance so memorable, they also learned 3 special songs for our night which were some of the best memories of our wedding. I can't recommend the Catz enough for your wedding!

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!
