“When we talk with people about our wedding, the band is always one of the first things that people mention.”

“The band read our guests extremely well when picking what song to play next (they don’t use a set list). So every song kept people on the dance floor—and there were no songs that cleared the dance floor. It was packed all night!”

David as an MC was phenomenal as well, he was ready with a glass of champagne for all of our family and friends that gave speeches. That was a detail I did not even consider before the moment I saw him handing a glass as they were about to toast to us.”

“They played everything we wanted them to play and they avoided everything we did not want! They even played a polish song for us.”

“The dance floor was packed the entire night and everyone jumped onto the dance floor right away.”

“David Rothstein Music was so unique, they brought out special fun props that were a surprise to us and our guests. That definitely made the party more fun.”

“We loved working with David. He offers such a personal touch. And had people on the dance floor the entire time.”
