CHECK SOME REVIEWS FROM SOME RECENT BRIDES:


"I think I had every one of my guests say "This is the best wedding DJ!" Johnny totally made my wedding spectacular. He was so patient with us and was so helpful through the whole planning process. I can't thank him enough for all he did. Dance floor was packed all night and played music for everyone to enjoy. I honestly don't see how my reception could have been any better. I HIGHLY recommend you have him as your wedding DJ. Guaranteed you will have as much fun as we did."
Vicky F - Orland Park, IL


"Johnny Rabenda from Rock Wave Entertainment is an amazing DJ. He not only had our dance floor packed all night, he was so friendly and engaging that I wish the music went on forever! I have several friends getting married in the next year who have already hounded me for his information. I have Multiple Sclerosis and it was very important that I not get to stressed out over details, being a control freak you can imagine that is no easy task. Johnny took care of everything and put my mind at ease. He was the one vendor at my wedding that my husband and I felt took the time to make our day so special! If you want someone professional, energetic, and really fun to work with he is the guy for you! Can't wait to have more parties so I can hire him again." Kelly M - Bartlett, IL


"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, - Oglesby, IL


"Johnny was the DJ for our wedding reception in April 2013. We were extremely pleased with his services. He was both personable and professional. He played the perfect dinner music and followed it with a great variety of music for everyone. Everyone loved the music selections - adults and kids alike. He helped us find fitting music selections for every part of the reception: introductions, dinner music, and dancing. We highly recommend Johnny as a DJ. He truly helped make our wedding reception one that was fun for all with great memories that will last a lifetime." Debbie M - Madison, WI


"Rock Wave Entertainment helped us in so many ways, we just can't say thank you enough. Johnny gave us a night that is near and dear to our hearts, and certainly one we will never forget. Our guests had so much fun and I don't think we stopped dancing all night. Thank you Johnny!" Karen P - Naperville, IL


"Absolutely amazing!!! We were so pleased on how smoothly the whole night went. We had so many compliments about them from our guests. We can't say thank you enough!"--Ashley S - Schaumburg, IL


"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


"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 where there was never a time where the it looked empty all night. 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


"Johnny was so great to work with. He met me every step of the way and accommodated everything I wanted. Even when I became bridezilla he always was calm and collective. Even talking with him on the phone I knew then he was the right guy for the job. You won't regret hiring him." Lisa F - Wilmington, IL


"Freaking" amazing! The band was on time and ready to rock. Very professional and had a crew to set up/break down equipment and make sure everything was in check. Helped make the evening run smooth with all the songs my husband and I had requested along with their own to get the crowd involved. All my guests had nothing but positive things to say and everyone made it to the dance floor. They played straight for 3 hrs (no breaks!) and even played a little past the scheduled time because everyone was having so much fun. They had their own PR person taking pics/video which means more memories for my husband and I. Super nice and accommodating. Would HIGHLY recommend." Laura V - Glenview, IL


"The best decision we made for our wedding was hiring Recycle The Day. Just amazing in every aspects of it. They went above and beyond to accommodate everything I wanted for my wedding. They were on time, ready, looked great, and were so professional. We even had a last minute panic cause our classical guitarist for the ceremony canceled last minute and Johnny (The Guitar player from RTD) did it. Sounded beautiful and did a great job. All my guests loved them and we now go every chance we get to see Recycle The Day. Just such a blessing to have in our lives. Consider yourself lucky if you have them for your wedding." Katie W - Elgin, IL

Rock Wave Entertainment helped us in so many ways, we just can't say thank you enough. Johnny gave us a night that is near and dear to our hearts, and certainly one we will never forget. Our guests had so much fun and I don't think we stopped dancing all night. Everyone for weeks after our wedding kept saying "that was the most fun I ever had at a wedding!" Rock Wave Entertainment was a HUGE part of that. Thank you Johnny!
