Oh my goodness. Where do I even begin?!?! The Bradley Young Orchestra was the best decision we made for our wedding. That's still all we hear about when our wedding is brought up in conversation...and it was 5 months ago! Comments like "Oh my God! Your band was amazing!!" "That was the best band I have ever heard at a wedding" "I felt like I was at a concert!!" I could go on and on.
We worked with Bradley from the beginning and he was nice enough to invite us over to his home to discuss everything from how we met and what type of music we both like to showing us videos of their band in action along with a cd to take home with us of their music. He was always very professional and we both truly enjoyed working with him.
I was still a little hesitant, however, up until the big day just because we were spending a pretty large portion of our budget on their performance. But I have to tell you, it was worth every. single. penny. They ROCKED our wedding and had our dance floor packed the whole entire time with our guests (and of all ages no less!) Honestly, your guests won't necessarily remember how beautiful your flowers were or how great your food was. What they WILL remember is how much FUN they had and if you live in the Chicago area, I cannot say enough about the Bradley Young Orchestra. They are simply the best!!!!!
The BYO is an AMAZING BAND for any entertainment needs – We used the Bradley Young Orchestra at our wedding on 9/4/11 at the Newberry Library.
They were absolutely outstanding. Several of our guests yelled (over the music) "THIS IS THE BEST BAND I'VE EVER HEARD" and I have had these emails with the same statements come pouring in over the past few days from family & friends who attended.
My father and I requested a not so well known blue grass song as our bride & father of the bride first song. The BYO learned the song for us and performed it as well as the artist and the performance with the choreographed dance was a huge success.
The BYO kept the awesome music playing all night and our guests never sat down. They had so much fun dancing to the BYO that when the wedding was over they went to a bar in the city and kept dancing until the bar closed.
If I could get married all over again I would absolutely choose this band again and will recommend them to my family and friends.

Amazing – These guys are the best!! We have seen every band in Chicago and nothing compares!
They play every song you want to hear, they sound amazing and the energy is off the charts! We look forward to every wedding / event these guys play because we know it will be awesome.
We had high hopes for our wedding but what they gave us was above and beyond! Our guests were blown away and so were we! These guys are in a league of there own!
A Good Change of Pace!!! – My fiance and I were at a wedding recently with this great dance band…we had never seen them before. Everyone was asking “where did you find this band?” I did a little homework after the party and found out this guy, Bradley Young, has been on the Chicago scene for some time, yet…most of our friends have the same band over and over again, which I'm sorry to say has become real predictable and BORING…
This band has a powerhouse sound, big horns and SOULFUL SINGERS…didn’t sound anything like these other wedding bands we've heard...some of these bands I hear at weddings are SO OVER-HYPED!...I'm always wondering why so many people hire the same band over and over again inside of their group of friends…and then you walk in, and go “Oh, Great..these guys AGAIN!”
This band sounds fresh, and really looks like they enjoy what they're doing!
love love love this band!! – Absolutely AWESOME! A couple of my friends & I were at a friends wedding recently and couldn't help but to notice how great the band was. .Phenomenal singers…the crowd went completely crazy!
Definitely way better than anything I've seen at other weddings so far…everyone was like “WHO ARE THESE GUYS???”
I LOVED IT…band played a cool after party with a little acid jazz instead of the usual DJ thing…I thought that was very cool as well!
5 STARS!!!...when I get engaged... I know EXACTLY who I'm calling…
We were just BLOWN AWAY! – My fiancé and I just saw this group perform at a wedding. We had actually booked another group that was referred by our party planner, and honestly we now regret that we booked this other group, although they are very good.
We had heard GREAT things about The Bradley Young Orchestra, but we were not prepared for the show we experienced at our friends wedding. This is without doubt, the ABSOLUTE BEST music we have ever heard at a wedding, period….the musicians are SO much more connected, and more PASSIONATE about what they were doing than the bands we have seen at other weddings…these musicians totally LOVE what they are doing, when most other “orchestras” are apparently playing out the clock.
This group is serious…but totally FUN !.. Just Killer! The wedding was still ROCKIN at 2:00 am. We wish we would have seen them before we hired our band. Oh well.
OMG! What a band!!! – They provided the most incredible entertainment for our wedding! Simply the BEST we have EVER HEARD at an event, bar NONE! The compliments started at the beginning of the evening and have never stopped coming since!
They knew what to play and when to play it!!!
From the ceremony to the reception, the energy they created was felt by ALL! The dance floor was full the entire night.
Very polished and EASY to work with when it comes to getting everything organized...(playlist, ceremony music, etc)
The best wedding bands in chicago! – I have worked with many wedding bands and event entertainers but 21st Century Arts & Entertainment / Bradley Young Orchestra is one of the best and most professional there is. In my mind the reason is pretty simple, they love their jobs and want everyone to have a good time. In my line of work that is a necessity. Too many times I have seen musicians only after their bottom line. You guys should check them out at fun21 dot com you'll thank me later.
