Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 18, 2023From La Porte, IN

The Stingers were a 5-Star experience at our Wedding! Rich worked with us every step of the way and really made the process so easy. We had cold, rainy weather but Rich and his team were on-time and ready to conquer the elements. Our guests loved them and we will definitely be booking The Stingers Band again for our next big event!

Club EventReviewed on June 28, 2023From Racine, WI

Let's just say you can't go wrong with the Stingers. Our overall experience with the band was fantastic. Rick was very easy to work with, when it came to planning the event. The vocals were amazing and the talent of the surrounding band members was awesome. We had many compliments throughout the evening and I would diffidently have them back again

New Year's Eve PartyReviewed on January 17, 2023From Batavia, IL

With only 4 weeks to plan a New Year's Eve party, I was under a lot of pressure. From beginning to end, Rick was so easy to work with...I feel like I made a friend in him throughout the process. The room we were using for our event was not completed and the band did not have an ideal stage, but they made it work. They had our guests dancing, singing and having a great time. All night I was being complimented on the band this year. They were flexible and played to the crowd. Each member bringing so much talent to the group, their passion for music came through when they play. We cannot wait to have them back this summer!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on October 6, 2022From Downers Grove, IL

Rick was highly professional and great to work with. He called shortly after receiving my inquiry, and provided background and important insights to consider for my backyard party. He continued to stay in touch and communicate about logistical details/requirements as well as to work on the preferred playlist together. He is an extremely talented guitarist and the entire band sounded great. The party really enjoyed the music and Rick and the band even added a few personalized touches to make it extra special for the birthday boy. Everyone was punctual and professional and flexible and helpful with respect to logistics/set up. Great value and I'd sincerely recommend.

FestivalReviewed on October 1, 2022From Chicago, IL

Rick and his band were wonderful at the Oktoberfest event we held in Old Town. They were on time and set up their equipment seamlessly. The lead singer has a great voice and the musicians are terrific. They played a solid mix of songs and styles as well as provided some German music for our theme. When your guests dance in the street, you know it is a good sound!

FestivalReviewed on September 11, 2022From Gurnee, IL

We needed a band last minute for our festival and were scrambling on The Bash and other music sites to find a band. I heard The Stringers Music sample and reached out. Happy coincidence - they had a last minute cancellation for our date! Nothing but positive responses from our audience of around 400. Rick was a pleasure to work with and very responsive to my questions. Professional with a sense of humor and a great selection of music played/sung well. Strongly recommended!

FundraiserReviewed on May 19, 2022From Woodstock, IL

These guys were absolutely fantastic! This was my first time going through the booking process, especially through a website that I had no idea existed. Rick reached out to me and answered all of my questions, and kept me well informed even before I officially booked the band. Communication was open and reassuring all throughout the process. They were extremely professional and kind! Their music was amazing, and the lead singer was so sweet and, boy, she can sing! They supported us throughout the evening of our event, helped us with announcements and anything else we asked, they accommodated easily! If I have future events, I would book them again in a heartbeat!

Community EventReviewed on October 22, 2019From Chicago, IL

The Stingers were fantastic to work with for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's largest fundraiser, Light The Night. This was an outdoor event with approximately 5,000 participants. We heard nothing but great feedback on the music and energy from our participants. The coordination of details for the event was seamless. Very easy to work with, super friendly yet professional. This was our first time working with The Stingers but will, without a doubt, ask them to play at our events in the future. I would highly recommend!

FundraiserReviewed on September 7, 2020From Maple Park, IL

The Stinger's performed at our annual fundraising event for horse rescue group, Illinois Equine Humane Center. Despite a lower than normal attendance (thanks to Covid19) and the small audience, The Stinger's rocked on and were thoroughly enjoyed by all! Very good communication with the band from start to finish. Would highly recommend for your next event!

Community EventReviewed on September 13, 2021From Wilmington, IL

The Stingers was a great band and played a variety of music to entertain all of our guests. They were very accommodating to requests and were thorough in the set-up and execution of the event. We received many compliments of the band and we will definitely have The Stingers back in the future!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 7, 2018From Chicago, IL

The Stingers are awesome! They played a great set at the beginning of our wedding reception and they got the party started! Rick is extremely professional and worked closely with us to craft the exact evening we had in mind. The whole group is incredibly talented, and I am still getting compliments a month later on how great they were. I highly recommend the Stingers and I wish I had another big party coming up so that we could hire them again!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 9, 2019From Highland, IN

This was my first time using gigmasters. And I have to say. I definitely found the band I was looking for to perform @ My 50th B-Day Party. Aside from all of the dancing all I heard from the guest was. How great The Stringers sounded & where did I find them. They put the cherry on-top. I will definitely hire The Stringers again if I need a band. And would do nothing but recommend anyone who is looking for a band to not worry. You won’t be disappointed. Rick does not disappoint from start to finish.

Rick and the band were a pleasure to work with, and we would absolutely have them back again. They worked with us to identify the kind of music we were looking for, and put on a great, high-energy set at our event. I would highly recommend!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 24, 2016From Elmhurst, IL

My husband and I hired The Stingers for our backyard wedding reception. It was a casual event that called for a jam band that would get the guests up and dancing, and The Stingers delivered just that. Their setlist was well developed and kept the party upbeat and singing along. Rick and the rest of the band have a great sound and are extremely talented. What I truly appreciated most it that these guys are in it for the love of the music and nothing else. I cannot recommend them enough for your event, I promise they will not disappoint, and by the end of your experience you will be happy to have made friends with this band. Thanks again Stingers!

Private PartyReviewed on August 24, 2015From Chicago, IL

The Stingers fully discussed their performance beforehand, told me what to expect in terms of set-up and site requirements, showed up on time, was very professional in their performance and got the party rocking. All the guests complimented me on the choice of the band and I was asking many times how I found them. So in the end, the Stinger were a great promoters for Gigmasters.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on November 20, 2017From Glenview, IL

Hired The Stingers classic rock band for my 50th birthday bash. They were amazing and everyone at my party thought they were outstanding! Band leader Rick is super nice, very easy to work with and very accommodating. Perfectly kept the flow of party going strong and everyone danced! I highly recommend The Stingers to others and would hire them again! Peter R.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on April 12, 2016From Chicago, IL

This was a 50th Anniversary party and I cannot think of anything that could have made our experience with The Stingers any better. Communications throughout the preparation period were excellent and timely. The talent quality of all the performers, the song list and the extras were fully appreciated by all our guests. We screened 5 different groups and The Stingers were head and shoulders above the others. All special requests were honored without any negative feedback and several of our guests took business cards from the band for consideration for possible future events. If you are thinking of using a classic rock tribute band for your event this is the one.

Community EventReviewed on July 18, 2019From Evanston, IL

The Stingers were so great! From the minute I booked them, Rick was super communicative and professional. They came yesterday to perform at our park, only made it about half way through the set, and of course it started raining. I was so bummed not to get to enjoy them longer- really terrific and talented band. I highly recommend them and look forward to having them back (fingers crossed for nicer weather).

I had booked the Stingers for a Havana Nights themed party a few months back and I cannot say enough great things about them! I worked with Rick from the band and he was so friendly while making the booking process so easy. The talent of this band is absolutely incredible! They interacted with the guests and really knocked our socks off! I highly recommend booking them for your next party/event!
