Four amazing vocalists, punchy, powerful horns, and the tightest, funkiest, most rockin' rhythm section in Chicago - the music you want, played with concert level skill, non-stop energy, and world class showmanship! Your dance floor filled with your friends and family having the time of their lives from the beginning of your wedding until the last note, then chanting in unison, "One more song, one more song!" This is music by the Peter Hennes Orchestra. "Experience Chicago's Hottest Celebration!"


"Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding day such a success! I have never heard so many raves on a wedding band as I have gotten about you - and rightfully so! Your band's energy is so magnetic - it was impossible to leave the dance floor! You definitely brought the FUN that we wanted for our reception. You are also a pleasure to work with. I appreciate your honesty, professionalism and respect. In a field full of gimmicks and overly showy folks, you and your band are a breath of fresh air! Thank you for everything and I hope our paths cross again!" - Carey and Mitch

"Peter, All I can say is "Wow." Seriously … "wow." Jim and I were floored with your performance last night. Your execution, delivery, professionalism, and talent made for a truly seamless night. We were honored to have you and your EXTREMELY talented group of individuals share in our celebration. If it wasn't for you and your group, our celebration would have been incomplete. Aside from comments from our guests along the lines of "Best Wedding Band Ever," "Where did you find them?", "They are incredible!", etc., etc., my mother said to me today, "Do you know who I really liked meeting yesterday?" And I said, "No, who?" And she said, "Peter Hennes. He was so nice!" You and your group were everything I dreamed of and more. Thank you for everything, and we hope that you and your group are as proud of yourselves as we are to have had you with us last night." - Mindy Kedvesh Read less

I've never seen a dance floor go from 0 to 100 miles an hour so quickly, and stay racing for three hours non-stop. Far and away the best wedding music and dancing I've ever seen. For weeks after the wedding, friends and family would say: "Great wedding. THAT BAND!!" I would recommend them unconditionally for your wedding.

This was the third wedding we had and contracted Peter Hennes Orchestra as our band for the events. They are fantastic. It is very easy to work with them and they know how to "feel" the crowd. They kept us "rocking" all night!! . Booking them for 3 weddings should say it all!! We would not have chosen anyone else!!

Peter and his band were consummate professionals and were an absolute pleasure to work with. They are musically gifted and many of our guests, avid wedding-goers, felt they were the best wedding band they'd ever seen. The dance floor was packed the entire night, so much so that we added time on at the end. We would recommend the Peter Hennes Orchestra with maximal enthusiasm and no qualification whatsoever! Additionally, Peter is a very straightforward and transparent businessman, making us very comfortable at every step along the planning process.

"From our first contact to the last song, the Peter Hennes Orchestra delivered flawlessly. Without exception, everyone at our wedding raved that the band was "the best wedding band ever!" The video clips online don't do justice to the talents of the musicians or their ability to get the wedding guests involved. The dancing started early with the "dancing between the courses" concept. This concept was new to us but was a huge success. From the college age guests to the grandparents, everyone danced all night. If you want a band that will energize your guests and get everyone on the dance floor, you won't find a better band than the Peter Hennes Orchestra. As father-of-the-bride, I couldn't be happier or more satisfied."

4 years ago, I had the pleasure of seeing the Peter Hennes Orchestra perform at my friend's wedding. I told my boyfriend at the time that we will be getting that orchestra to perform at our wedding someday (presumptuous I know!) I remember that being one of the best weddings I had ever been to until recently when they performed at my own wedding.

Peter Hennes was the consummate professional. He was extremely responsive to all e-mails and phone calls and worked with me to make sure that they put on a show I would never forget. His band even learned two songs for us that were not in his song book for my first dance with my husband as well as my first dance with my dad. It was amazing of them to do so.

The orchestra is EXTREMELY talented. All of their musicians blew my family away (I already knew they were incredible) and that is coming from a family with a dad who was a concert pianist, an uncle who was a concert violinist, and an aunt who was a concert flautist. They kept the dance floor packed the ENTIRE night. There was never a dull moment! I loved the interaction with the crowd when the singers came out onto the dance floor and let me and my guests sing along.

It was a night I will never forget and it is thanks in LARGE part to Peter Hennes and his orchestra. I highly, highly, recommend them to all you brides out there - I promise, you will not be disappointed!

They were absolutely amazing! They learned our first dance song for us and allowed my uncle to sing the Father Daughter dance song with them which brought me to tears. Our dance floor was packed the entire night and everyone commented about the awesome band!

"Wow" is all we can say about Peter Hennes Orchestra!!!! We had three things we really wanted for our wedding: good food, good drinks, and an amazing band - we hit the jackpot, and they did not disappoint!! Peter Hennes was recommended to me by a friend of a friend who used them at their own wedding, and had this to say: "We were on our feet the whole night...no one sat down, and the dance floor was always packed!" I knew then that this was the band for us. After receiving Peter's quote, and comparing it to another quote (only for practicality's sake) Peter's pricing was more than fair, and blew my mind when I looking at what the other band wanted to charge us. Peter was always available to answer questions with lightening fast response times, and asked US extensive questions on music preferences, etc. until he felt like he had the perfect play list.

The band itself was absolutely, hands down, UN-FREAKING-BELIEVABLE, and kept the party going all night long!! The singers get down into the crowd, dance and sing with you and your guests, and seem to be having just as much fun as everyone else at the wedding. We went with the 10 piece band, and the non-stop music option in order to keep our guests entertained the whole night - that was definitely the way to go! The dance floor was packed, sweaty, and filled with singing/laughing/dancing fools, which is just how we wanted it, and our most precious memory from our wedding! We truly cannot rave enough about Peter Hennes Orchestra enough - your only mistake would be to miss out on the opportunity to have them at your wedding!!!

We can't say enough about the Peter Hennes Orchestra. They MADE our wedding reception truly extraordinary. From the time they began playing until the final song, the dance floor was filled with happy guests and the wedding party. The staff at the reception venue said Peter Hennes was the best band they had heard play for a wedding, and everyone came up to us and said it was the best wedding reception they had been to.
