Standing Room Only played at my ceremony / cocktail hour (piano) and reception (9 piece band) in Rock Island, IL. I was so grateful they were willing to travel 3 hours from Chicago. The lead male singer was not available for my date but they told me before booking and were able to bring in an excellent replacement for the night. Andrea was the lead female singer and MC and she did a great job running the show. I didn't have a lot of time to pick out songs and Kara planning the whole thing and did a great job. The dance floor was packed the whole night!!! Everyone loved the band! After shopping around for a good band, I think Standing Room Only brought a lot of value for their price. Thank you SRO!

My mom and I worked with Mike and then Kara, and we loved working with both of them. They were both very sincere, professional, and wanted to make sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted. All of our guests told us how wonderful our band was (during the wedding and after the wedding, repeatedly), and my husband and I were incredibly impressed with their voices, instrumentation, and ability to play to the crowd for five hours. They stayed until midnight as promised, and the dance floor never lost energy or enthusiasm throughout the night. My parents were incredibly happy with the price we paid too. A lot of bands we looked at were not as talented, and their packages were more expensive for less amount of hours. SRO's package was incredible, and we are so, so happy we chose them! Please consider SRO for your wedding!

This is the most amazing live band around!!!! Our wedding guests were on the dance floor from the second they started playing. The music was truly the best part of our night. We also had the pianist during the ceremony, guitarist during the cocktail hour, and jazz trio during dinner- every single performer was outstanding. The band also MCd the event and he kept our whole night on schedule. We are SO grateful for these talented musicians for making our wedding the best night of our lives!!

I cannot say enough about SRO. They were flexible, responsive, and most importantly, SO FUN! I have gotten so many compliments on SRO from our wedding guests. We had someone playing piano at our rehearsal dinner, a trio for our cocktail hour, and the 9-piece band for the reception. In all three settings, we were absolutely blown away! They played a huge variety of music that got everyone on the dance floor. In addition to making sure the wedding guests were having fun, the band appeared to be genuinely enjoying their evening which made it even more special. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

We saw this band perform at a friend's wedding a year before ours. We had so much fun and they were so good we didn't even consider any other band options. We love dancing and they kept everyone (kids and grandmas) dancing the entire night. Great mix of genres and styles! We had multiple people comment on his great the band was. Could not recommend them more!!

Standing Room Only did an amazing job keeping our dance floor full. They played music across genres that was enjoyed by all generations. We had grandparents, parents, and young adults all boogying down. They were so easy to work with and learned all of our special songs. Their pricing was very reasonable and certainly more affordable than the other Chicagoland bands we considered. We were so glad we invested the extra money to have a band and STRO was the best choice we could have made!!

I honest to God can't say enough about working with SRO. First of all, it was super easy - we saw all of the good reviews online and listened to some of the music on their website. That was it - that was all that we did. It could have gone horribly wrong but it didn't - the reviews are not here to lead you astray - they were a fantastic wedding band.

The dance floor was packed all night (which is the only thing that my husband and I wanted. Literally -the only piece of the party we cared about). At one point, several people came up to me to tell me that they thought they were lip-synching because THAT'S how good they sounded. If you're reading this review and trying to decide just stop right now and make SRO your choice. You won't regret it.

Mike and his gang were unbelievable. Most flexible, responsive, professional, quality vendor of everyone we worked with in preparation and execution of our big day. The amount of experience Standing Room Only has really shines through the week of. And wow! These guys know how to throw a party. Final song I look up and not one person is not on the dance floor. I would say I would recommend SRO to all my friends but all of my friends were at the wedding and they don't need a recommendation - they are all ready to book. Thanks Mike and Co - you guys made Hannah and I's biggest party even bigger than we could have imagined.
