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

Hiring Soda for our wedding reception was the best things we could have done. To this day, our guests still comment on how amazing the band was. We could not have been more impressed with their playing skills and expansiveness of song selections. We were also married during the Blackhawks playoff season and Soda did everything they could to keep our guests informed. I would hire this band in a heartbeat for any occasion.

This band is the best! They have the ability to play all kinds of music from country to ballads to rock. Our guests were dancing all night , including the bride's 83 year old grandmother ! (who never left the dance floor) Rob is very professional and sooo easy to work with. No prima donnas here...just wonderful musicians that love playing their music and making their audience happy. Thanks so much Soda, you made our party incredible!

We cannot recommend Soda enough. They were exactly what we were looking for: a fantastic cover band that would have the dance floor full. All night long: from guests in their teens and twenties to guests in their seventies.. They completely understood the feeling we wanted for our wedding. Rob was an unspeakably spectacular frontman.

Here's how good they were: they would go on a short break, and we wouldn't realize they did; they sounded so much like the songs they were playing that neither the guests nor we realized they took a break. They're the type of band we'd go to a bar specifically to watch one of their shows. Tons of fun

Great songs. Great energy. Great everything. Over and over again our guests have commented how great the wedding band was. We would use them again in a heartbeat.

I cannot recommend Soda enough! They are the best, most bang-for-your-buck wedding band out there. We had heard them at a wedding a few years back, and the dance floor was never empty. We expected nothing less from our wedding - and the dance floor was packed all night long! The great thing about Soda is they know such a wide variety of songs so it pleases all attendees - from 9 to 99. We were careful about some of the music selections (no rap/electric slide/etc.) and Rob was more than accommodating. He was responsive, fast getting back to us, friendly to work with, and most of all - flexible. We had some changes to the reception schedule and it was a breeze. Their music is absolutely electric - it's so fun to experience their energy and sound, and they are so talented. Compared to other bands we researched, they were the best value for our suburban Chicago wedding. They even learned our first dance song since they didn't know it. I cannot say enough good things about them. Thank you Rob and band for making our wedding the best night of our lives.

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!
