Thank you for playing our wedding at Gaelic Park and doing such a great job. The day turned out perfect for us and you were a big reason why. We got so many compliments on how fun you guys are!
We always knew we wanted a live band and are so glad we chose you--we had fun dancing all night! Maybe we'll see you down the road sometime in the future!

Just wanted to follow up one more time. I know we complimented you and the rest of your band mates several times Saturday night, but wanted to say again that you all did a splendid job. Well, splendid is too meek, so I'll say kicked-butt! All of friends and family kept coming up to us asking where we found you, what a great mix of songs, good singing and excellent musicianship.
I would think there may be some leads coming your way in the coming year or so, so that's always a good thing of course. You were a pleasure to work with and communicate with, so that goes a long way as well. Continued success with the band. Rock on!

"Thank you for the amazing entertainment..."
I just wanted to touch base once again to thank you for the amazing entertainment you provided for our Gala last Saturday night! I heard so many compliments about what a fun and awesome band Soda is. You are all so talented!
We are so grateful that we were able to book you for the Gala! Besides providing the best dancing and listening music, thank you so much for your flexibility with the other entertainment and for accommodating Fr. 20 and Steve Johnson with their performances. You made it so fun!
Please pass along to the rest of the band our deepest gratitude! I hope we get a chance to hear you again next year! I am recommending to whoever takes over for Maria and me that they book you pronto. Have a wonderful day, and thank you again!

"Thank you for a great performance..."
I wanted to thank you all for such a great performance at Joyce and Matt's wedding this past Saturday. We had seen you perform at the Hollywood Casino Aurora, and I knew you were good when there was a whole bunch of people coming in not to gamble, but to see your show and dance. You guys really took it up a notch on Saturday. So much fun!! Thank you!

"You Packed The Dance Floor..."
Thank you so much to you and the rest of the band for the great music at Melissa and Dillon’s wedding reception!!! We had a fabulous time and loved the music. You’re obviously aware that you packed the dance floor at the start and no one seemed to leave it. I enjoyed every song and was so grateful for all of the energy you brought to our event!! We could not have been happier!! Thanks so much!!

"You Guys Are Great"
Thanks again for your energy, passion and entertainment you brought to our company picnic yesterday. You and your band were truly loved! I couldn't figure out how to tag your band in a post but was able to tag our company (Nalco) and the organization we were raising money for (water for people) and included a link to your site. You guys are great - I think you have a new groupie!!

Thank you for making the College Bound Opportunities Gala a HUGE success with OUTSTANDING music. I was in the other room when you started playing and I thought it was a CD. I will definitely keep you in mind for other events. You were wonderful to work with!

"Dance Floor Was Packed"
Rob and Soda,
Amy and I wanted to thank you for the incredible music on our big night! Everything went perfectly and you guys made sure the dance floor was always packed. We really appreciate how you learned our first dance song as well as the mother/son dance. It made it that much more special.
We will be sure to recommend you to all our friends and family!

"Totally Blown Away...!"
Rob and the members of Soda,
I cannot tell you what an incredible impact you had on our reception! So many people came up to us exclaiming that they hadn't danced like this in years, and that this was the most fun wedding they'd ever been to. And it's all thanks to YOU! From day one when we first started communicating, you were so helpful that you instantly had us at ease. And at the reception we were totally blown away by the group's talent and energy! We can't wait to refer you to all our friends!

"You guys are amazing..."
Thank you all SO MUCH for making our wedding a blast! I can't tell you how many people came up to us and complimented your music, saying they hadn't had so much fun dancing at a wedding ever before! You guys really made our night memorable and special, and for that we will forever be grateful! Thank you also for learning our first dance song. That really meant a lot to us. You guys are amazing and I will definitely refer you to all our friends! Thank you,

"Even better than I imagined!"
I cannot imagine a better band for our wedding than Soda. You were absolutely incredible!!!! Every song was awesome - I have never seen a dance floor packed so consistently throughout the night! And it was so awesome that you continued to play later into the evening - THANK YOU for that! And, the first "fun song" (I Gotta Feeling) was AWESOME. It worked out perfectly - even better than I'd imagined!!! I could honestly go on and on.
Thanks again for an absolutely perfect evening. We will remember it forever!

Our family and friends are still raving about how incredible you guys were. Thank you so much for making our ceremony and reception so amazing and unforgetable!
We will definitely see you around!

"I would recommend hiring Soda!"
At weddings, there are a few things that make the day memorable. The happy couple, bringing family and friends together and the BAND! Soda was set up and ready to go way before the guests arrived.
Rob and his band played the best songs at the appropriate times and from the first song to the last, the dance floor was full. They played great music during our cocktail hour. Not too loud, so people could still talk and it just got everyone going.
Rob introduced the bride and groom at the cocktail hour and they did their first dance (My Kind of Rain). The band learned this song for them and it was very special. Rob was very easy to work with from the start. He was easy to communicate with and responded to e-mails or phone calls in a timely manner.
The whole band was friendly, thoughtful and patient! It was a large wedding with many moving parts and they did an awesome job. We received many compliments and seriously, no one wanted them to stop playing!
Thank you for making our daughter's wedding memorable and special. I would recommend hiring Soda! You won't be disappointed!

"We have gotten many compliments"
We just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU for how wonderful you guys made our wedding. It meant so much to have you perform on our special night. You were a joy to work with, sounded amazing as usual, and kept the dance floor going all night! Which is pretty exceptional considering a lot of our friends and family could be categorized as "non-dancers"! From hosting the evening as emcee to playing for as long as you did, everything was just perfect. We can't tell you how many compliments we got from our guests as well as the Morton Arboretum staff on how good you guys were!!!
Mike also wanted to thank you for learning and performing Baby Blue as a special surprise. You did a terrific job with it, and it made the night that much more special. I'm sure it helped that it is one of your childhood favorites, and clearly we (you, me, Mike) have great taste in music. In a very ironic twist, I was actually going to email you to request that song myself, believe it or not. What a bizarre and awesome coincidence!!
I also want to note that the ceremony music was absolutely exquisite.
Your rendition of "Cant Help Falling In Love" was truly beautiful. We have gotten MANY compliments on the ceremony music as well. I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You helped make our evening truly unforgettable. Hopefully you'll be able to pick up some extra gigs from the wedding attendees. See you on the Soda circuit!

"Knew it was going to be a good night!
Tim and I wanted to thank you and the band so much for making our wedding last Saturday awesome! Thanks so much for learning our first dance song...this made it really special for us.
We had so many positive comments about how great the band was and how it seemed like you guys never even took a break the whole night. One guest said "When they started off with Uptown Funk, we knew it was going to be a good night!"
There was not a moment where the dance floor was anything other than packed and everyone (from young to old) seemed to be having a great time dancing. We would definitely recommend the band to anyone I know having a wedding in the Chicago area.
We found you guys based on all of the good reviews on Wedding Wire and I'm so glad that we did!! Thanks again so much!

"You and your band brought great energy..."
We want to thank you so much for making Amber and Ben’s wedding the best ever. The ceremony music exceeded our expectations, and the cocktail hour and reception music were perfect and couldn’t have been any better.
Our dance floor was packed the entire reception. We heard nothing but wonderful comments from all of our guests about the band. You played a great mix of music which encouraged all of our guests to get to the dance floor and dance. You and your band brought great energy to the entire evening.
Rob, you were a pleasure to work with through the entire process, and we thank you and the band for traveling to Swan Lake Resort (in Plymouth, Indiana). Thank you again for making Amber and Ben’s wedding a big hit!
