David and Jeff were amazing to work with. They were extremely professional and met with us to discuss what type of music we wanted and made sure our timeline was ready before the big day. I could not have asked for a better band! Everyone keeps raving about the band and how much fun they had dancing. David Rothstein Music is top notch and exceeded our expectations! If you want an epic wedding, hire this band.

I would highly recommend David Rothstein Band to anyone who is looking for an amazing music partner for their wedding day. Everything about them was top notch and I would absolutely make the same decision if we were doing it again. In short, they rock it. We had all parts of the group - 10 piece orchestra, classical trio (ceremony), jazz trio (cocktail), and even DJ (for band downtime and late night) and every portion was top notch. They partnered with us to make it a special day for us and our guests, even learning some music that was special to my wife and I, and had the dance floor packed throughout the evening. Not only have guests regularly told us how amazing DRB was, but many also told us that it was easy to forget DRB wasn't the original musicians....a testimony to how talented they are. They also gave us the perfect wedding gift (Michigan bags game) that all of our guests signed! Can't say enough good things. Sign this team up because you won't be disappointed and it is 100% worth it.

Thanks! Grant & Courtney

I'm a musician and my (new) husband and I love seeing quality live music, so once we booked our venue, booking a band was our next priority. After watching some of his videos online and reading what David does as an MC, it was a quick decision. During the year of planning our big (225-guests) wedding, we had a fair share of stress and worry about many details. But my husband and I always looked at each other and said, "No matter what happens, the music will be great." That helped us through! AND IT WAS GREAT. Throughout the reception I had people walking up to me and telling me two things: that's a gorgeous dress and this band is amazing. A month later, and people are still talking about "that band." So many guests have told us it was one of the best weddings they've ever been to, and they follow that with, "the band was incredible!" Many people noted that they didn't notice any transitions between the DJ and the band, because their covers were so spot on. It was certainly the best wedding I've ever attended! I was determined to dance at my own wedding, and David's band made it so easy because all of our guests were dancing, too! They made it very personal, which I'll always appreciate. And David was a calming presence during the planning and at the wedding itself. He even took videos for us, which I wasn't expecting. If you want to be able to fall back on the assurance that, no matter what happens, the music will be great, then book David Rothstein and his band.

Having the best music and getting all of the guests dancing was our number one priority for our wedding. So naturally, booking David Rothstein Music for our wedding (May 21, 2016) was the very first decision we made in our wedding planning process. That is how confident we were that they are the best band! We reached out to several other bands, but David added a personal touch that no other company had. He truly wants to get to know each couple, their story, interests, and music tastes. They really go above and beyond.
David helped with coordinating the schedule for the reception, leaving no detail out. He walked us through the timing of every announcement, dance, toast, and music which really allowed us to get a feel for how night the would go.
On our wedding day, the energy throughout the night was unlike anything we could have imagined - literally everyone on the dance floor! All of the musicians are extremely talented. For example, one of the vocalists who sang "Old Man" by Neil Young (for our father/daughter dance) actually sounded like Neil Young, then switched to a country song and sang “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts (for the mother/son dance) like a pro - we couldn't believe our ears!
We also highly recommend the dancing between courses and adding their optional DJ to fill in the breaks and enhance the music.
To this day all of our guests are still raving about the band. David’s passion for was he does is unprecedented. With David Rothstein, your wedding is guaranteed to be the best dance party and the most memorable night!

READ ME; simply put the David Rothstein Band was amazing. We had some band members for the ceremony and cocktail hour and the 10 piece band for the reception. David and his crew had everyone on the floor dancing the night away as soon as the meals were finished. We told David that he could pick whatever music the band wanted to play; each song was better than the next. The singers were outstanding, interactive and a joy to listen to. The band were true professionals and it was worth every penny. I’m still hearing from family and friends how much fun they had at the wedding.
David takes his job seriously and it shows via his MC skills, he had everything running like a well-oiled machine. He met with us prior to ensure everything was going in order and aligned with our wants. David even and his team got us two unique gifts which we will cherish for our lives.
My advice to you; if you want your wedding to be over the top hire the David Rothstein Band!

There is just too much to say! David & his band were incredible. People are STILL talking about the energy at our wedding. Even our other vendors couldn't get over how well everything came together. DRM was one of the first bands we came across when researching for our wedding (4/16/16, yes I'm a little behind schedule on this review!). We met with David IN PERSON before even booking. If you're in the midst of planning a wedding, you know how beneficial it can be to have an in-person discussion with a vendor.
David's choices are completely a la carte, and it was really nice to be able to pick and chose what we wanted & when. We decided to go with the 3 piece band during ceremony/cocktail hour + 11 piece band during reception + Frank Sinatra singer during dinner + a saxophonist to welcome our guests in the elevator with champagne. We got married at Bridgeport Art Center and worked with David & his team to make that elevator scene quite the WOW when you walked in.
David made us feel very confident and secure throughout the entire process. He was constantly asking us for music suggestions, & even encouraged us to have the band learn new songs. Well, we certainly had them learn some new songs. Our wedding was anything but ordinary. We played a lot of Phish, & were nervous about the band mastering the sounds of our beloved band in just a few months. The band killed it. They took on every Phish song like it was nothing & made our wedding so, so special & memorable.
Yes, David & his team are expensive, but they are worth it. People remember the music...& I promise you they'll remember this band!

Amanda and I are happy to give David Rothstein Music our highest recommendation for your wedding. We just had our wedding December 12th at Sofitel and the music was both tremendous and perfectly coordinated with what were extensive requests.

David serves as the MC and he supervises the musicians as the director of the company. He did an excellent job moving the reception schedule along. We did an East Coast style wedding reception with dancing between courses and it turned out great. There was not a wasted second and the outcome was what felt like a non-stop party.

David met with us 3 times before the wedding. First as an introduction, then to combine our thoughts and plans for the reception with his recommendations, and then again to go over the final schedule and song lists.
When it came to the music I was a bit of what one would call a “high maintenance groom.” For the first hour and a half of the reception (introductions, first dances/father daughter, group dances, grandparent dances and more group dances and Ipod music during the band’s dinner break) I scripted every minute of every song. The band and sound team played it exactly as scripted.

Then for the dance party from 9-12PM we gave them a list of about 50 songs off their “know” list. Of the 30 or so songs they played at least 25 were from the list I had given and the others fit our style and went off great as well.

Finally, and most importantly, we can not overstate the quality of the musicians themselves. Vocals, guitar, bass, drums, horns, piano…. all awesome. When we talk to our friends about the wedding the first complement comes to the band from everyone. Absolute must mainstream crowd pleasing plays are : “Shout,” “Disco Inferno,” “Uptown Funk,” “Run Around Sue,” and “Everlasting Love.”

Cheers,
Matthew and Amanda

I cannot express how glad we are to have used David Rothstein Band as the music for our wedding reception. From the initial meeting to the final outcome, everything was wonderful! We had a lot of individualized requests in terms of additional things we wanted incorporated and David accommodated everything. We also loved the addition of the Frank Sinatra singer. It really suited our wedding so well. We've received so many compliments on the band since our wedding! Thank you to David and the whole band for keeping the party going! I don't think anyone wanted to leave at the end of the night! The attention to detail and personalization that David puts into each wedding is wonderful. Another great reason to book with them is the Share Your Love flower donation program. All of our flowers went to a rehabilitation center the next day. So glad they could continue bringing smiles to new faces even after the wedding!

It really suited our wedding so well. We've received so many compliments on the band since our wedding! Thank you to David and the whole band for keeping the party going! I don't think anyone wanted to leave at the end of the night! The attention to detail and personalization that David puts into each wedding is wonderful. Another great reason to book with them is the Share Your Love flower donation program. All of our flowers went to a rehabilitation center the next day. So glad they could continue bringing smiles to new faces even after the wedding! Read less

Wow! Thanks for such a wonderful review! Your wedding was a lot of fun and I loved seeing so many people dancing the whole night! Adding Lou, our Sinatra guy, helped make the wedding extra special. I appreciate you donating your flowers to our Share Your Love program. The patients at the Rehabilitation Center absolutely loved them! Thanks again and congrats to you both!
