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.

Standing Room Only was our band for our wedding this fall. They were fantastic to work with throughout all of the wedding planning. We had more compliments about the band on the evening of the wedding than you could ever imagine. They had the dance floor packed the entire evening and everyone had an amazing time. The band does a great job creating a songlist from our recommendations and requests, and from what they know to be well loved songs to keep people on the dance floor!

I can't say enough about Standing Room Only. They helped to make our reception the party that we had always imagined. From the first time we spoke with Mike to the final song on our wedding day, everything was professional and personal. If you're debating between Standing Room Only and any other band, stop debating. Standing Room Only will not disappoint!

We can't say enough about this band, they truly made our night. Don't get me wrong, we would have gotten married either way and I'm sure had a great time, but Standing Room Only made it an unforgettable night for us and our guests. You know the band is good when you're on the dance floor and you forget there's a band playing because it sounds like so much like the actual artist. We had so many guests telling us that it was the most fun wedding they'd been to in a long long time. I have to give most of the credit for that to SRO. Obviously not all, my wife and I are pretty fun... They really know how to keep the party going and how to work a room. All our aunts and uncles and even our grandma's were on the dance floor at one point. That's pretty impressive. The picture on their website is not a fluke, if you hire this band the dance floor will be packed all night. I'm sure we could have gotten a band for less money but I couldn't be happier with the job they did. They deserve every star I gave them in this review. The contact process was easy and they got back to us right away. There were some songs that we wanted them to play that weren't on their song list, that was no problem they learned them before the wedding. Very professional and their value, in my opinion, is through the roof. I highly recommend Standing Room Only, and you will too if you hire them. Thanks again for making our day that much better guys, really do appreciate everything.

The best band around, no doubt. I have two sisters, who will also be using Standing Room Only for their future weddings. Couldn't have asked for a better party to celebrate our wedding day. I knew the band was great when hiring, but I was even surprised on the wedding day how AMAZING they were. Also, I knew I was making the right decision when our wedding planner used them for her wedding. Our guests danced all night, and the band even improvised when my intoxicated uncle wished to sing a song... It was perfect!
