How much do wedding bands cost in Chicago?

The cost of a wedding band in Chicago can vary based on several factors: how far the band has to travel, how many services they’ll provide, how many band members perform, and how long they’ll be playing music!


When budgeting for your wedding, you’ll also want to factor in what day of the week you’re getting married and what time of year. These may affect the prices of all your wedding vendors, so if you’re looking to save money, consider having a wedding in the off-season!


The great news about Funktastic is that our packages are highly customizable, and we can provide as many or as few services as you need for your big day. So if you’re wondering how much a wedding band costs in Chicago, let’s dive into our packages:


Wedding Band & DJ Combo


Our wedding band/DJ combo is our most cost-effective package because you get all your music needs in one bundle! While other bands don’t necessarily have their own DJ, Funktastic does – which means you don’t have to pay individual costs to multiple vendors. Plus, who wants to keep track of yet ANOTHER invoice?


We offer two packages with our wedding band and DJ, including:


The Garfield


  • A jazz duo or trio for cocktail hour (up to an hour)

  • An experienced DJ (up to four hours of dancing)

  • An emcee and a wireless mic for speeches and toasts
