We had Brooke & The Nice Things perform at our wedding and they absolutely rocked it! They put on an amazing set ranging from Aretha, to Amy Winehouse, to Queen to Etta James. I couldn't imagine a better first dance with my new husband while Brooke belted out At Last and our guests cheered. We loved every minute and have had so many people reach out and tell us how amazing the band was. We've heard "best wedding band we've ever heard", "loved how they played Motown all night and didn't switch to the poppy stuff that kids like these days" and "how did you find them?!?". Well, we are so glad we found them and that they could play for us - will definitely be recommending Brooke & The Nice Things any chance we get.  --- Danielle

We were so happy to have Brooke & the Nice Things play at our son’s wedding on August 20th at our home in Lake Delavan. From the first minute that Brooke took the stage, everyone jumped on the dance floor. Let's say 125 people at all times. Brooke and her fabulous musicians brought their best game---best performance, unique and amazing sound and energy all night long. If you want to have the best soul/dance band for your private event, you have to call Steve to book Brooke and her band. --Carol

Dear Steve & Brooke:  Thank you guys so much for being a huge part of what has clearly become the best night of our lives. You all KILLED it, and the complements are still coming in about how amazing you were!  Although our priority for the night was to dance as much as possible, we wish we could have done more. Every second not spent on the dance floor was was agony. Thanks again, you guys! Can't wait to catch up to you again sometime later this summer. --Taylor & Justin

I have worked with Brooke & The Nice Things for several years at the Miller Lite Beer Garden at Navy Pier. When booking out an extensive season it’s always good to have groups like them in your plans. Brooke & The Nice Things are easy to work with and pair seamlessly with a variety of different genres. They are a pleasure to work with and continue to deliver a high level of professionalism year after year. I strongly recommend working with them!                                              Dylan Hankey - Program Coordinator, Music - Navy Pier

Steve, Brooke, and ALL The Nice Things : - Just wanted to thank you all again for playing our fest this summer and helping to make it a success! You were so great to work with, fun to watch and your sound was nothing short of AMAZING to listen to. I know that I told Steve, Brooke and Joe after the show how much everyone loved the performance... and I am STILL getting compliments and questions about the band from fest attendees weeks after. "Who was that last band who played the fest? WOW." To which I simply smile and reply "Brooke and the Nice Things." Needless to say you all put on a memorable show and we very much hope to have you back at our fest again this upcoming summer. With much regards and appreciation -- Kevin, Bartlett FD & Ignite the Courage Foundation

Hi Steve -- I met you briefly this past Saturday at the Wisconsin wedding.  First of all, let me say that Brooke and the Nice Things were absolutely INCREDIBLE!! You all kept the dance floor rockin' all night...it was unlike anything we've ever seen. There were many points in the night that Pat and I looked at each other and said "We have to get them!!"  We are getting married in Indianapolis, IN. We're hoping that you travel that far south. Keeping our fingers crossed you have our date free and we can go from there! Thanks again for keeping us moving all night long last Saturday. Looking forward to hearing from you! --Sara and Pat

Steve -   …I should tell you that there is a real risk when the word gets out that you guys are the band for the  wedding… you know when you invite 300 folks to a wedding you figure 20% won’t show.  But with YOU guys, with your reputation in this family, it will be more like 2%.  If YOU’RE looking forward to this, I tell ya, multiply it by ten and that’s where our family is… -- John

“If there's one really important thing to get right at a wedding, it's the music. And if there's one band in the Chicago-land area to trust with 100% confidence - it's Brooke & The Nice Things. It’s been two months since our wedding and I'm still hearing from aunts, cousins, friends, and siblings. It was that damn good. If you want a wedding band with authenticity, funk, and action - look no further.” – Mark

Hello! You guys have played at two of my cousins’ weddings and I have loved you! I will be getting married in December and was wondering if I could talk to you about your availability and prices! Looking forward to hearing from you. –Maddie

 Hello Brooke and Steve, Thank you. You guys totally killed it and were the perfect addition to our event. I loved the music, how you activated the room, and how you read the crowd. Thank you as well for being so pleasant to work with. Photos of our event will be posted on Wine Enthusiast's Facebook page in a few days, but please let me know if you need any hi-res versions. Thank you again and cheers to you! Sincerely, Adam

WOW, this young lady can sing, and her band ain't too bad either. We enjoyed the concert this evening in Lisle. Can't wait to see them again! LOVED your choice of songs as well as your originals. New Fan – Eileen

Brooke and Steve -- You all put on an INCREDIBLE show this past Thursday. I talked to a lot of people who said you all were the stars of the whole night.  Have you all thought much about doing weddings? For one, I think you all could be crushing it there. For two, I’m planning on getting hitched sometime (about a year from now) and would love to work with ya. Anyways, props for the great sound and presence. Hope to stay in touch! –Marc

My fiance and I recently caught you all at the Bassment and were absolutely blown away. We would love to talk about having the band perform at our wedding next year! –Jake

Hi Steve – Thank you so much again for everything last week!  The band was awesome and the client just loved it! --Maddie, The Underground

Beautiful voice, excellent horns, boss strings: GREAT BAND! Loved the originals! – Karyn
