Voted one of Chicago’s Top 5 Bands by the readers of Nitelife magazine, Soda has quickly become one of the area’s premier choices for wedding receptions. Soda is featured in the recent publication “The Busy Bride’s Wedding Planning Bible” (available on amazon.com and given as a free gift to all brides choosing Soda for their reception!). Soda has also received the “Brides Choice” award here on Wedding Wire the last three years.

In October of 2013 Soda performed for the wedding of Chicago chef and restauranteur Stephanie Izard (Top Chef Season 4 winner and owner of local restaurant favorite "Girl & The Goat"). Stephanie discovered Soda here on Wedding Wire and her review of the band can be found in the review section (10/6/13).

So what makes Soda so special? How about an extensive and diverse playlist that covers some of the best popular music ever written. From Frank Sinatra to Maroon 5, from Patsy Cline to LMFAO and everything in between. Classic Rock, Disco, Motown, 80's New Wave, Punk, Funk, Rap, Hip-Hop, you name it. It's all there for you to choose from. What makes Soda so special? How about an unparalleled attention to detail. With multiple lead singers and their incredible multi-part harmonies, Soda can bring an unmatched authenticity to all your favorite tunes. Take a listen to the sound samples on the Soda website and see if you agree. One of the most common comments about Soda is how much the band sounds like the original artist. A recent bride commented "Oh my gosh, when you guys started playing after the break, I thought it was still the DJ!"

And that attention to detail extends to every aspect of the band's performance. You'll be in excellent hands. Soda band leader, Rob Loar has MC’d at hundreds of weddings and can provide the support and feedback to help make your evening go as smoothly as possible. It’s like having a wedding planner for the evening of your reception, and it eliminates all the stress and allows you to “be the bride”.

And perhaps the best part of choosing Soda for your reception is the cost. With many wedding bands, especially the larger bands, you’re paying for the extra personnel. Because they may have multiple singers in addition to the instumentalists. But with Soda, the multiple singers also play multiple instruments and that saves dollars. Soda will save on space and volume, as well as saving your budget. You’ll find that Soda’s prices are hundreds of dollars less (or more) than many other bands in the area.

Soda is more than just your average "Wedding Band". Soda performs nearly 150 dates a year at clubs, festivals, park district concerts, corporate functions, birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, and of course, weddings! Nearly any occasion where you'd want some great live music, Soda will provide the energy and the tunes to get your guests on the dance floor and keep them there the whole night long.

So please take a good look at all the information provided on the Soda website. We believe you'll find exactly what you need to help make the biggest day of your life a night to remember! Read less

We were recommended Soda by our wedding planner and they did not disappoint! The wedding was in Dubuque, IA, and they were happy to travel over. They played during the meal and struck exactly the right balance of upbeat background music but not being at all intrusive and allowing people to chat. After the meal they played a fantastic selection of music and made sure there was something for everyone, no matter their age. The quality of their music and singing was first class. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone had an amazing time. The fact that we have had so many compliments from guests on how great they were is a testament to this. We were so glad we booked them, they really made the night so memorable and fun. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Book them now!

I can't recommend SODA enough. If you're even considering them for your wedding, I whole-heartedly believe you should book them immediately. They were so easy to work with, a great value, and had our dance floor packed the entire night. We had tons of people compliment us after our wedding on how great they were. Thanks, Rob & Soda for making our wedding perfect!

My husband and I are so grateful we chose Soda to play at our wedding! Rob was absolutely fantastic from the moment we booked them to the very end of our wedding night! Rob talked with us various times throughout the wedding planning to ensure we were all on the same page. He also had SO many great ideas in order to make sure our day moved smoothly. We chose to have live music at our ceremony and Rob even learned the new instrumental in order to make that moment even more incredible! Rob was a great MC at the wedding and everything truly ran perfectly throughout the night! Rob mentioned when we first met him that he would play the songs we wanted but ultimately his band knew which songs would pump the crowd up and he was NOT kidding! Our guests had an incredible time and nearly everyone made it out onto the dance floor!! Not only did Rob meet our expectations but he exceeded them! Rob surprised us by playing the Father-Daughter and Mother-Son songs live! I could go on forever but overall SODA ROCKS!! BOOK them and you will not be disappointed :)

We booked SODA after reading great reviews on Wedding Wire and going to see them in person at a local venue. SODA did not disappoint. They had our guests dancing ALL night! Rob made sure we stayed on schedule with speeches and dinner to give our guests plenty of time to dance and have a good time. SODA exceeded our expectations. They learned our first dance song and it was perfect. The mother/groom and father/bride dances were just the right amount of time. Don't think twice about booking this wonderful band for your big day!!

We had a great experience with Soda. Rob even suggested that my husband and I come out to see them perform before booking and we were hooked. We had numerous conversations before the wedding and they made it so easy for us. We still have people comment on how wonderful and fun the band was at our wedding! Not only do they sound great but their energy gets everyone out on the dance floor and they stay there the whole night! Rob and the group even learned our first dance song and they sounded great!

Soda played at our wedding in April 2016 and did a fantastic job from start to finish. Rob was very easy to work with ahead of the big day, getting the booking set up, agreeing on a songlist, working out set-up details with the venue etc. On the night the band was very professional and versatile and played lots of songs that appealed to a wide range of people, young and old, which ensured the dance floor was always busy. The musicians are very talented and having Rob playing the trumpet on a few songs really expanded the repertoire and meant it felt like we had a much bigger band than a 4-piece without having to pay for 7/8-piece band. Rob also provided MC duties on the night to introduce the toasts and organized dinner background music. We and all of our guests were very impressed with the band and we would not hesitate to book them again.

Having never seen them and only hearing a few snippets on their website we took a bit of a leap of faith in booking Soda for our wedding. To anyone reading this, please take that leap with us! If you feel unsure at all, Soda will not only catch you, but raise you up too. Rob, Erik, Jeff, Mark, & Tammy ... Thank You! Thank you! Thank you! We did not want our reception to end thanks to you. We received unanimous approval from our guests. From our parents who are seniors, to the kids and teens, and everyone in between, all were overjoyed with the music. One of our college students remarked she was on the dance floor and did not realize the band was on a break. You guys are that good. One of the kids loved it so much her mother happily, I repeat happily, told us she developed a blister from dancing so much. I was worried some of the older guests would complain about the loud music, etc but instead we heard nothing but compliments. One of the first things my mother told me the next day was "That band was really good. Where did you find them?" If you knew my mother, you would not expect this. From "At Last" "Build Me Up Buttercup" and the Beatles to "Sugar" "Uptown Funk" and T Swizzle, your setlist was so diverse it included several selections for everyone. And Tammy... what an incredible voice! I cannot recommend this band enough to anyone looking for a great time at their wedding. They are extremely professional, talented, and fun. Rob is wonderful to work with and very accommodating. We had a few last minute changes at the very end and he seamlessly took care of them. Also, from a price standpoint, we looked at several bands and Soda is very reasonable, so from a value standpoint, they are off the charts! Thank you Soda for making our wedding day truly one the best days ever!

SODA WAS AMAZING!!!!! I am still hearing so many compliments from everyone that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. We got 12 inches of snow the night before our wedding and they still made the trip AND downloaded a song for us that we requested the DAY OF. Rob is super easy to work with and is such a fun time. I can't say enough about how awesome this band is!
