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

I highly suggest booking Soda for any sort of event. We booked them for our wedding and got nothing but awesome compliments on our choice. Many of the guests came up to us and said that it was the best band they have every seen at a wedding, and we agree! They made the night!

We had a great experience with Soda during our Sept28, 2014 wedding reception in downtown Chicago. Rob was great to work with during my phone convo's with him from contract talks to song selection process.

When we arrived at the reception we were able to chat for a few minutes and he gave a last minute suggestion on our entrance song, which was much appreciated and perfect.

Our wedding guests loved the music......especially as the evening went on the dance floor seemed to get more and more packed. The band seemed to pickup on those sorts of things and kept the dance music coming and everyone loved variety of tunes.....so fun. If a band is within your budget I would strongly recommend Soda versus a . SIDE NOTE: they played a nice selection of recorded tunes during dinner, and master of ceremony stuff was good too!

PS...Hopefully Soda enjoyed the "extra" band member tambourine player we provided them most of the night :)

My husband and I are beyond pleased with the professionalism of the band, Soda. They touched base with us on numerous occasions leading up to our special day to ensure we had the same expectations and all details were shared. Rob from Soda offered to learn songs that was not on their list, such as our first dance and daddy daughter dance. It was amazing! I highly recommend this route versus a recording of the song. He even helped me decide the order of my reception when my wedding coordinator was difficult to reach. I can't say enough about them, they were fabulous! I have had so many compliments from wedding guests about the Soda. I will choose them all over again!

My husband wanted a band at our wedding that got his family up and dancing... Soda was exactly what he wanted! Soda not only played during our ceremony with a duo to start, but added more players as the night went on. This gave our wedding a variety of music. The highlight of the evening was when Soda not only had just about everyone on the dance floor but invited my dad to sing, "Mustang Sally" to our guests. They also sang "Happy Birthday" to one of our guests at dinner. The personal service and flexibility Rob Loar and his band mates possess made our wedding a wonderful night to remember. Thank you Soda.

Soda did an incredible job of performing, entertaining and hosting at our wedding. We primarily worked with Rob who was always responsive and professional throughout the entire process. He is a cool guy with a lot of event experience and I was very grateful for his ability to give advice but leave the option up to me. As a bride, I appreciated that because I needed suggestions, not restrictions. The band was very open to our song preferences and did a great job of reading the room to keep the tempo up all night. The dance floor was the center of the party which was important to the groom and I. There were people dancing that I never expected to see out there, the music was just too good to stay away! The range of this band is unbelievable, they played so many different genres and they did it all exceptionally well. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, they pulled out a trumpet and just crushed it.

If this review isnt enough to convince you, I highly recommend that you go see them play a concert. Their performance sells itself, the fact that they are professional and affordable just makes choosing Soda even better.

Working with Rob Loar of Soda was the easiest part of all our wedding planning. He responds to questions in a timely manner and sends an information sheet prior to the event to keep the evening organized. Rob does an excellent job as the emcee, the band plays the best dance music ever, and they are an amazing value. We'll happily book them again for the next wedding in our family.

Best band ever! We chose this band for our wedding, because multiple family members had used this band for their weddings. I was afraid of having the same band because many family members used them, but everyone still loved them. They kept people on the dance floor all night long. I would highly recommend this band to anyone.

Soda was amazing and a great vendor to work with! I received so many compliments from my guest about how great the band was. They played every song I requested and seemed to know exactly what songs to play to get the crowd dancing. I had "Then" as my first dance song and although that was not a song they knew how to play, they took the time to learn it!

Soda's performance was the highlight of the night! Rob was able to help guide us through the booking and planning process as well as make suggestions. All the band members were very professional and talented. We had overlooked the timing on the day of our wedding (we had a half hour less than we thought at our reception location) and Soda was able to change up their schedule to fit our last minute changes. I highly recommend booking Soda for your special event!
