Dave Weld And The Imperial Flames’s Response:

It was a wonderful event. and we enjoyed learning thenew song for the mother/sn dance, and were happy when they picked a timeless class, "My girl", for the father/daughter dance! Many of our clients choose to make this an annual event, for wedding reunions, renew vows, or simply "lets have another great party"!! We really hope to see these wonderful and fun people again! Thanks for the great gig! Sincerely, Dave Weld 7734940283

A note of appreciation to Dave Weld and The Imperial Flames. They played a private gig for us last night in Lombard, IL. Far exceeded our expectations. Great musicianship, high energy, and fun interaction throughout the night. 3 lead singers keep the sound diverse. Kept all of our group out on the dance floor the whole evening. We have events twice per year and many people said this was the best band ever. If you need a band in or around Chicago that can mix it up but stay true to the blues - Dave Weld and the Imperial Flames is your go to band. Very easy to work with on the arrangements. Worth every penny.

Book the band a few days before the event and they did a great job. Had ppl dancing and having a great time. Highly recommended. The event was a private buyout of a bourbon bar in the downtown Chicago area for 200+ ppl for an after hours party from 10 pm - midnight.
