Featured Matt Stedman Band Review
BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!! Matt and his crew were an absolute joy to work with, and i would gladly have them again at any parties or events in the future. His lines of communication were very direct and timely; he was always very courteous, professional, and helpful whether we used him or not (we definitely did!); they played beautifully at the processional/recessional at the ceremony; and our guests raved about them at the wedding, playing everything from rock to oldies to slow songs to our requested polkas. I remember going to see the Matt Stedman Band one night to check them out and immediately knew after hearing them and talking with Matt that they would be our wedding band. He also handled all of the emcee duties at our venue and made the whole process quite easy! Thanks so much again for a magical evening - you guys rock!!

Featured Ring Of Music Review
We listened to many possible bands before we selected the Ring of Music for our elegant evening wedding at the Chicago Park Hyatt and we made the best choice! The band was professional, well organized, and quietly ensured that we stayed on our "timeline" and the music we selected was played throughout the evening. Our guests were on the dance floor the entire time which is saying a lot since we and most of our guests are in our fifties! The band included 2 terrific singers, and we also had a saxophone that added a great late night vibe. WE highly recommend this group for your wedding or other event in the Chicagoland area. Book them early--they are worth the price.

The Matt Stedman Band was the perfect choice for our wedding in Benton Harbor, MI (at the Blue Dress barn). Due to rain, we had to move the cocktail reception inside at the last minute. It was no problem - the band played the cocktail hour beautifully. By having different band members play at different times, they kept the cocktail hour music interesting and perfect for the occasion. After dinner, they really let loose. They had the whole place dancing all night. They really know how to read the crowd and play the right song at the right time. In addition, every musician in the band is extremely good and it really shows. If you have the extra budget, it is worth it to add the female singer and saxophone player - both were great. It should also be said that Matt goes above and beyond in making sure that the bride and groom have a special night. The band learned the song for our first dance and played it wonderfully. Also, when it appeared that the venue might shut things down earlier than expected, Matt was honestly upset and promised the staff that the band could get their gear cleaned out quickly so that we could get a few final songs in! Overall, I can't recommend the Matt Stedman Band enough.
