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!

We knew immediately after meeting David that we wanted The David Rothstein Orchestra for our wedding. David is very professional and prides himself on getting to know the bride and groom on a very personal level. The energy of both David and the musicians is amazing and your guests are guaranteed an evening of great fun! The entire wedding planning process is made so easy when working with David. He works with any special musical requests, leaving you totally confident the music will be spectacular at the wedding. And spectacular, it is! I love that he donates your flowers to local nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, etc. around the Chicagoland area, as well. David also gives the bride and groom a custom gift, unique to the couple, which is very kind-hearted, thoughtful, and personal.
David and his entire team impressed all of our guests and I would not hesitate to recommend The David Rothstein Orchestra for your wedding. They could not have been more entertaining and definitely the hit of the night...AMAZING!!!

From the first time we spoke with David we knew we were in great hands! He made sure our vision for the night was fulfilled while adding wonderful suggestions that helped enhance the evening. The dance floor was packed the entire night – so many of our guests commented it was the most fun they’d had at a wedding and the most dancing they’d done. Hiring David Rothstein and his band was the best decision we made when planning our wedding – no regrets!

David Rothstein Band was absolutely amazing! David was so professional and worked with me so much before our big day. He made sure that every detail waqs right and was flexible about putting our personal touches in the receptions. He truly cared about making our day perfect! Our guests never left the dance floor. They did a great job picking songs for all age groups. Many of our guests told us that it was the best wedding band they have ever seen. I would hire this band again in a heartbeat!

I cannot say enough good things about the David Rothstein Band! We got married on June 20th, 2015 and hiring them was the best decision we ever made! Every single guest of our wedding raved about the band and are still raving about them a month later. We've been told over and over again that because of the amazing band it was the best wedding that they've ever been to! We hired David to not only be our reception band but also our ceremony musicians, who are lead by Alex, the cocktail hour pianist, and the dinner jazz trio. Every single musician was incredibly talented and super professional. Not once did we have any issue with any of them and there were quite a lot of people! David hires amazing musicians for his bands and it really shows. On top of all the music being fantastic, David truly loves what he does and loves his clients. He personally called me each time he had a question or needed the timeline nailed down, which was great. To brides, it is so hard to get someone to return emails in a timely fashion, so someone who calls is WAY above the rest. What David also loves to do is give each couple a special gift to be their guest book in a way. He finds out what that couple likes and finds the perfect gift. David knew that we are obsessed with our dogs (seriously, it's sad) and that we started dating while the Hawks were in the playoffs in 2013. So for our gift he got us Blackhawks dog jerseys that everyone could sign. How amazing is that?? Yes, they are a pricey band but it was SO worth it. Don't hesitate to hire them, they will make your wedding the best wedding anyone has ever been to :)

When looking for a wedding band we knew it was important to find a band that brought a lot of energy and sounded awesome playing a variety of music. With David Rothstein we were not let down. We got the string trio for the ceremony, jazz trio for cocktails and seven piece orchestra for the reception. They learned nine new songs for us which helped to tailor the event to our unique interests. Some examples were Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" and and Chili Peppers' "Snow" with the ceremony and adding some alternative songs like Milky Chance's "Stolen Dance" and Walk the Moon's "Dance With Me" in addition to the wedding staples like classic music for the ceremony and classic rock to pop for the reception. We got compliments from everyone on how great the band was in addition to a lot of "I rarely dance but I couldn't resist".

David worked closely with our planner to make sure that the the wedding from ceremony, to cocktail hour, to the reception all went smoothly and provided on point humor and stories to mix in with the well thought out song flow with the band to help maintain a high level of energy and excitement the whole night. I would highly recommend David Rothstein Music because on a day like a wedding where you are concerned about how everything coming together David works with you beforehand to make sure that their approach is unique to you and it is something you will look forward to rather then worry about. Many great memories and we are so happy we went with David Rothstein Music for our big day.

Selecting the David Rothstein Band to play for our wedding was by far one of the best decisions we made. I knew from the initial phone call that they would make everything amazing for us. David was so accommodating and personable to us we feel now as if we have known him for some time. The performance was amazing from the first song our guests were up on the dance floor and didn't stop dancing until the end. Everything was truly amazing and above and beyond what we had expected. Our guests have given us soo many compliment's on the David Rothstein Band and we were honored to have them be a part of our special day. We highly recommend the David Rothstein Band for a night to remember.
