"We had our company's holiday party for Cargill back in January of 2013 and hired Johnny for event services. We were extremely pleased with the band he brought and their performance. They completely saved the evening as we hired a comedian to go on before the band and he was a complete bust. We were very worried about how the evening was heading and they completely turned it around with a fantastic high energy performance. Had a great range in music and gave a little for our wide range in age for all our employees to enjoy. I would highly recommend calling Johnny for your next event and am now looking to have him and the band out for our future company parties."

"A few weeks ago, we had Recycle The Day play at our wedding. We could not be happier that we chose them to perform for our special occasion. We originally were going to hire a DJ. However, Recycle The Day provided a one-stop shop, including DJ, MC and live music. We could not be happier we chose them. Recycle The Day allowed us to pick the songs to be played and were very helpful through the process of planning. During the reception, they sounded amazing and got everyone on the dance floor. We had a great time and received many compliments from our guests regarding how great the band sounded. Thank you to Recycle The Day for making our special day so perfect!" Lauren R - Utica, IL
"Johnny I can't thank you and the band enough! EVERYONE loved you guys! I have been told over and over that was the best band they ever heard play at a wedding. Everyone from my 2nd cousin who is ready to fly you to California when his daughter gets married to a server at the venue who is getting married and asked my mother for the name of the band because she wants to use you all. As many people said you all kept guests on their feet all night long. Thank you so much!"

"Lisa and I want to thank you and the band for making our wedding night something not only we will remember but all of our guests will remember forever. During the wedding and still to this day and probably until we get old we're hearing from friends and family about how awesome you and the band were. You guys sounded great and the synchronized choreography was icing on the cake. The greatest moment of the night was when Lisa's Grandma who has been suffering from alzheimer's for quite sometime looked Lisa straight in the eyes and smiled and started to dance. Immediately family members grabbed the photographer and captured that moment. There wasn't a dry eye during that and we have you and the band to thank for that memory. Your professionalism and understanding of attention to detail made the night flow seamless and not once did I have to worry about our time schedule because you were always there making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be. You've made us fans for life for Recycle the Day and we will continue to come to your shows and rock out with you. Thanks Johnny and all members of Recycle the Day!" Daniel K - Des Plaines, IL
"Recycle the Day played our New Year's Eve Wedding and it was incredible! Leading up to the big day Johnny was awesome in coordinating every detail with us to ensure they would play everything we wanted. They tailored the setlist to our liking which was very important. The dance floor was hopping the entire night and was never empty and every one loved them! If you are looking for a fun upbeat entertaining band that keeps the party going this is it!!!!" Colleen G - Chicago, IL
"Our wedding reception couldn't have turned out any better thanks to Johnny Rabenda and Recycle the Day. I can't count how many people commented how good the band was all night long. They kept the dance floor crowded all night and there was never a time when it looked empty. They were very easy to work with from the planning stages all the way through the wedding day and fulfilled every request we had. They never take a break between songs which was amazing and played everything from the 80s to current hits. Our wedding reception was perfect thanks in large part to the band who kept the party going all night. I can't wait to see them again at another gig." Brett C - Milwaukee, WI
"Recycle The Day had our dance floor packed the entire night, from the first song to the very last! My husband literally did not leave the dance floor all night. When the night was over, everyone still wanted more. They did an amazing job of mixing modern songs with some wedding favorites. Several of our other wedding vendors (photographer, reception hall, etc.) commented to us that they had never seen a live band at a wedding quite like ours. Our friends still talk about how much our wedding band rocked. Love, love, love Recycle The Day!" Shannon Z - Quincy, IL
"They were outstanding. Everyone loved the band and the music they played. We had a wide span of ages and we heard nothing but wonderful things about the band."

"The BEST wedding band EVER! We could not have imagined more perfect of a night, which we credit so much to the band! They were incredible! So talented in playing and perfecting such a variety of songs/music, great, positive energy (never even taking a break), the ability to get EVERYone on the dance floor-- we were sad when the 3 hours were up! RTD had ALL of our guests on the dance floor all night (over 300 guests), even our grandparents! Everyone is still ranting and raving about how fun our wedding was. Many of our guests have been contacting us for their information and RTD has even picked up some groupies following them around the suburbs! I knew they were good when we were scouting bands, but they blew us out of the water with their impeccable performance. Johnny also was amazing in organizing the night as the emcee, as well as communicating with us during the planning. He is very creative and organized. We highly recommend this band for your wedding. Book them now though, as they are booked solid as they are getting very noticed and famous!" Fawn D - Chicago, IL
"Thank you guys so much for playing at our wedding! You guys were awesome and we loved it. People have been asking who we had so we have been giving your info out. I didn't know what to expect but you guys far exceeded any expectations I could of have. Everyone had a great time and dance all night. We would gladly give you guys recommendations to anyone."
Kathryn V - Oak Brook, IL
"It was the best night of our lives, and the band definitely made a huge impact on that. We also wanted to make sure all of our guests had a great time at the wedding, and I believe our mission was accomplished because our friends and family have NOT stopped complimenting us on how great the band was! They played a wide variety of music, starting with some "oldies" to get everyone on the dance floor. Even my 86 year old grandma danced the night away! (For comparison, my cousin got married a few months ago and had a DJ. My grandma did not dance at ALL!)"
