Bottom Line

The Bottom Line has been one of the most successful Cleveland wedding bands for over 20 years. This 7 piece group is fronted by two dynamic lead vocalists. It can go from sophisticated jazz and ballads to a band that “rocks the house.”

Experience, versatility, flexibility, and dependability are some of our strengths. We have never cancelled a job in 20 years. We enjoy working with the client during the planning process. During the performance everyone in the band is focused on making it an enjoyable event for the client and guests alike.

  • Best Wedding Band Ever

    The Bottom Line Band was the perfect choice for our wedding reception. Stan, the band’s leader, served as our emcee, and his smile and personality added to the joy of our event. Stan has an incredible singing voice, and his female vocalist was equally outstanding. In fact, when she sang an Aretha Franklin song, she sounded just like Aretha herself! The instrumentalists in the band were top-level professionals who played traditional pieces, jazz, rock, pop, motown, polka – every style one would want in a wedding band. Stan was a pleasure to work with because he was kind, considerate, flexible, and patient with our reception schedule. Many guests remarked to me afterwards about our great choice for a live band for our daughter’s wedding. Thank you to Stan and his band for an unforgettable evening of dancing fun. Since I am, myself, a career musician and music teacher, it was especially important to me that our wedding band be the best. And it was!

    The Perfect Band!

    The Bottom Line was the perfect band for our group, which ranged in age groups from early twenties to young eight year olds! The Bottom Line group was classy, energetic and fun when our guests were up dancing and played softly during our program. The evening was lovely! Thanks To Stan Davis and the entire Bottom Line group!

    Our guests at our wedding were completely amazed at the Bottom Line Band. Instead of the usual DJ performance at wedding receptions, I decided to hire a live band for my wedding. I made the right choice! Our guests did not want the evening to end! It was such a pleasure to have the members of the Bottom Line perform at our wedding!

    They made our wedding exceptional

    EVERYONE is asking where we found this incredible band! ALL of our guests from their 20s to 80s had a great time being entertained by the great group of musicians in The Bottom Line. The dance floor was packed the entire night. We are pleased beyond belief! Thank you Stan and Myesha for your amazing vocals and the rest of the musicians for coming through for us and making this an event to remember.

    The Bottom Line is the BEST

    We cannot say enough wonderful things about Stan and The Bottom Line!! They put on a SHOW! The dance floor was packed with people of all ages the entire night and guests are still reaching out to me to tell me how amazing they were. Throughout the planning process, Stan was so great to work with it and helped to make sure that all of our special requests were met. They even surprised my mom by learning one of her favorite songs and playing it that night- it was incredible. The Bottom Line truly went above and beyond and made our night a party that we will never forget. We cannot thank or recommend them enough- they are spectacular!!

    The Bottom Line had been the band at two of my best friends’ weddings, and I chose them for my wedding because of the amazing time that I had with them before. They did not disappoint!! My guests and I spent the whole night dancing! The energy and music were perfect, and I would recommend The Bottom Line to anyone!

    Incredible choices of artists!

    Both groups were outstanding! Sonata Stings worked with us on musical choices and brought sophistication to the wedding and cocktail hour. The band, Bottom Line, was incredible. They also played at our son and nieces weddings. The band’s wedding party intros are well done and the post dinner music kept people of all ages dancing until closing! Would rehire them for any event at anytime! The guests loved the music whether they were dancing or taking a break!

    Awesome performance

    Bottom Line is the best wedding band you can get. Stan and Ruthie are outstanding vocalists. The rest of the band right on all night. Everything was very tight.

    They handled all the logistics, introductions, announcements, first dance, cake cutting very professionally and on cue. Then got the party started and kept it going.

    I got tons of compliments from the guests on how great the band was.

    Forget the DJ – hire Bottom Line. Well worth every penny.

    I have to say that our wedding was beautiful, but our wedding was AMAZING because of the Bottom Line. Every single person in the band was so nice and genuine! The band played such good songs that the guests were on the dance floor before their food was even served! People were on the dance floor the entire reception which was extremely important for us. They played all great songs and kept the fun going all night long. They were very interactive with the crowd and know how to entertain! We had such a blast with them and they are truly amazing, talented performers. Guests were saying this was the best band they have ever heard. We can’t wait for our next big party so that we can have the Bottom Line come back! We Love Stan and the whole band!!!

    Great Performance!

    We had The Bottom Line play out our college’s Reunion Weekend. They were an excellent choice! Guests enjoyed themselves, danced along to the music, and complimented them well after the event. Their range of music was great for an audience that varied in age and musical tastes.

    The Bottom Line is AMAZING!

    We hired technology for our wedding ceremony (sound system, etc) and our wedding band (The Bottom Line) through CLE Music Group and couldn’t have been happier. Scott Jones was a pleasure to work with–always quick to respond and able to explain the best ways to handle our situation. The Bottom Line was AMAZING and we can’t imagine our wedding without them. The dance floor was full the ENTIRE night. They sounded wonderful–our emcee Stan was delightful and really got the crowd going. They were super willing to play our music during their breaks and really paid attention to the songs that we asked them to play. All of our interactions with them were stellar and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you to the Bottom Line; we continue to get compliments!

    Everyone loved the band!

    We hired Bottom Line Band for our wedding on August 1, and they were terrific! They learned our first dance song, and emceed the dinner. Everyone LOVED the band. We got comments on how great they were from almost the minute they started playing. Our dance floor was packed all night, even though it was a little sweaty in the barn. Even after their set breaks, once they started up everyone flocked back to the dance floor. We are so very glad we went with Bottom Line Band.

    Wedding Wow!

    The Sonata Strings set the tone for a romantic modern wedding ceremony. The Bottom Line kept everyone on the dance floor until midnight, they were fantastic and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend both of them!

    Nothing beats having a live band play at your wedding and Bottom Line truly exceeded my expectations. No matter what age my guests were they were out on the dance floor having the time of their life. Bottom LIne has exceptional musical talent and knows how to keep a party rocking!

    The Bottom Line Band was absolutely amazing to work with. Not only were they extremely talented, but they were a joy to work with: polite, professional, and very accommodating. The guests at our wedding are still talking about how amazing they were. I would highly recommend this band for anyone looking for high quality live entertainment.

    UNBELIEVABLE! The Bottom Line Band was beyond amazing for our wedding! They were wonderful prior to the day with communication and so easy to work with. The wedding day itself was 104-degrees outside, and of course our reception was outside! They were stellar and never once slowed down, complained or even broke a sweat?! I don’t know how they did it. Professional to the core…and even a month later I’m still getting compliments from friends and family! THANK YOU to each and every band member, especially Stan who was quite possibly the best emcee I’ve ever worked with (and I’m a former radio DJ, so I’ve worked with lots!) And thank you Jerry Bruno productions, it was a pleasure to work with you.

    The only complaint we had from our guests was sore feet the next day….because every person was dancing all night! All music was all that we envisioned and more. Cary’s piano was the perfect complement to the glamour of the Ritz, and I can’t say enough about the Bottom Line Band! My husband and I felt a little guilty for not going table to table after dinner to visit with guests, but there was NO ONE sitting at the tables because they were all up dancing. The vocal talents and the musicianship were incomparable!

    If you want your party to be great, hire the Bottom Line. Stanley and his amazing band made our wedding a smash success. They are magnificent musicians, kind people, and if you do hire them, please invite me to your party. It’s the least you can do.

    I truly enjoyed having The Bottom Line be a part of my wedding day! I spoke to Norm multiple times leading up to the wedding and he was wonderful and helped with every question I had. Then I spoke to Stan who was just as wonderful right before the event. I have had great feed back from my friends and family about the band. I also have to mention, Stan’s smile and joy while performing is contagious! I just wish the night could have lasted longer! I loved having The Bottom Line play at my wedding reception…I highly recommend them!

    Brian and I want to let you know what a wonderful job you did at our wedding. We really appreciated your enthusiasm, friendliness, and flexibility. You are all amazing people and are extremely talented. You did a great job of keeping everybody (young and old) happy and on the dance floor. We are still hearing about how much everybody loved you and have given your name out to many people who want to use you for their own events.

    I don’t even know where to start!! The music at our reception was absolutely AMAZING! Your sound was exactly what we wanted and the vibe you created was perfect. I must have had 40 different people (no, I’m not exaggerating) tell me how wonderful you were and wanted to know how we found you. As a former professional musician, I understand how difficult it can be to gig and play the same material time and time again. Thank you for keeping the music interesting and fun, it really made for a great night!

    The Bottom Line performed at our wedding, and we are still getting phone calls about the wonderful band. They had people dancing in their seats during the dinner set, and after dinner everyone flooded the dance floor! They even learned a new song for our first dance as husband & wife. Everything was perfect and we would recommend The Bottom Line to anyone looking for a professional, friendly, and extremely talented band for their special day!
