L. Herman - Bride and Professional Musician

A big Thank You for putting together a killer band for our wedding. They were FANTASTIC!! So genuinely talented, musical, energetic... people are still raving about them to us, and we could not have been happier that night. Also, I wanted to thank Benedict for going with the flow on the song we did together. He played beautifully, and was so nice to work with. Great personality and great musicians. All in all, I will go on to refer anyone I can to Spotlight Music. Thank you for going the extra mile to make me feel comfortable during the planning process and overjoyed by the performance!

Their flair for all kinds of music—the sounds and style, as well as a great repertoire—has something for everyone.

Event Coordinator

Robby Helperin and Spotlight Music are tops in my book! As the event coordinator at Temple Beth Am in Los Angeles for the past 20 years, I can tell you that working with Robby and his bands is always an amazing experience. Their flair for all kinds of music—the sounds and style, as well as a great repertoire—has something for everyone. My brides and grooms are just elated and my corporate clients leave completely satisfied. Robby’s professionalism and his kind, organized demeanor allow him to handle any situation.

"Our Family and Friends Still Cannot Stop Talking About You."

Mr. & Mrs. GaVoian - Parents of the Bride

I would like to thank you, and your musical group, on your stupendous performance at my daughter’s wedding. The male and female vocalists sang superbly. Their many genres and styles were impressive. Your brass section was as good as any studio musicians I’ve heard (I wouldn’t be surprised if they were). The equipment and sound system were first class, and the professional look and atmosphere created was nostalgic of the big band era, yet contemporary enough for our needs. Our family and friends still cannot stop talking about you. We have already had numerous inquiries into your background and contact information. I was also impressed with the sound level… it was at perfect range. It was loud enough for the people who danced, and at the same time it allowed the guests to enjoy conversation. Your music was both inspiring and instrumental to the success of our wedding event and for this, we thank you. We will most definitely consider you for our next event.

"It Always Helps to Know That You’re the Guy in Charge of All the Music!"

A. & P. Klitofsky, parents of the groom

Thank you so much for helping make Wayne and Lauren’s wedding such a swinging success and so much fun. It always helps to know that you’re the guy in charge of all the music! We wish you all the best and hope to see you on a dance floor soon.

"Everyone... Complimented Us on the Excellent Choice of the Band."

S. Jahn, Mother of the Bride

I want to thank you and your band for the amazing music and entertainment you provided at Jenny and Josh’s wedding. I can’t begin to tell you how much fun everyone had, including me! I love to dance (as you may have noted) and had an unbelievable time throughout the entire reception. Everyone has gone on and on with their positive comments and have complimented us on the excellent choice of the band. Here’s an example of just one of the many comments we have heard: ‘Good work on the band. That choice can either make or break a wedding. It was perfect!’ Thanks for helping to make this special occasion a fun and memorable one in our lives.

"Heart and Soul of the Party... You Made It Well Worth the Eight Pieces."

L. & J. Mark, Parents of the Bride

Thank you so much for being the heart and soul of the party for the reception at Joanna’s and David’s wedding at the Ojai Valley Inn. You made it well worth the eight pieces. The kids wanted a party, and your music gave it to them. The music for all the specialty dances was perfectly played, and you kept everyone wanting to dance the night away, which we sure did. Even when the hotel fuses blew, you kept right on keeping on. It was a great event for both families, and your “soundtrack” made it all the more fantastic. Thanks again.

"People Said We Had the Best Wedding Band They've Ever Heard."

S. Lowy - Bride

Thank you for really making our wedding the most special!!! The music was unbelievable!!! And our ceremony music was just beautiful. Extremely romantic and special. People said we had the best wedding band they've ever heard. People were raving!!! I can't believe it's all over. I had the best time planning. Thank you for everything!

"Such an Eclectic Range of Expertise!"

V. Yaghoobian - Bride (A Jonathan Reeves Wedding)

I got married this past weekend at the Beverly Hills Hotel in the Crystal Ballroom, and Robby Helperin led the band. It was the best night of my life, and I owe a lot of that to him. The music was fantastic, exactly what my husband and I wanted. All our friends were on the dance floor the entire night....we were all sweating our butts off! Just how I wanted the night to turn out. Robby was also so great about communicating before the actual wedding. It was easy to get a hold of him, and he was also open to our suggestions. He's a very talented musician and has such an eclectic range of expertise! - V-Yaghoobian - (A Jonathan Reeves Wedding)

"He Couldn't Sleep That Night Because of All the Good Energy He Felt From the Music"

Samantha B. - Bride

5 Stars - If I could give more stars, I would. They were incredible!!! I used them for both the ceremony and reception. The band leader, Robby, helped me pick out the songs to walk down the aisle to. Everyone loved it and told me how beautiful they thought it was. My friend says she wants the exact same song selection for when she gets married. At the reception they played different styles of music according to what we wanted and did both perfectly. Also, they make it a point not to play too loud so that people are able to have a good time but also talk. This was important to many of my guests and they did a perfect job. They got everyone on the dance floor and kept my friends dancing all night long. One of my friends even said he couldn't sleep that night because of all the good energy he felt from the music at our wedding. My friends who are getting married want to use Spotlight for their wedding too because they liked it so much. Robby also made the schedule for my wedding and worked with my other vendors to make everything happen. They also worked with my fiance who surprised me by playing a song for me on stage. Spotlight Music was more than just my band. They were a big element to making my wedding a success.

"Far Exceeded Our Expectations!!"

J. Ghozland - Bride

Amazing!!! Spotlight music was great!! We had music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and We had a 7 piece band for the reception. They played such good music, and their voices are incredible. They kept everyone dancing the whole night and went off the vibe of the crowd. Far exceeded our expectations!! Highly recommend.

"The Party Was the Best – Superior to Any Other...Everyone Raved About Your Band"

A. Minteer - Bride

Your music was phenomenal! The voices and musicians were first-rate. Everyone had a marvelous time and largely because you were so good at gauging the crowd – what they liked – and fairly representing all the groups at the party!!! Everyone raved about your band and I gave your name and info to many people!!! We all agree the party was the best -- superior to any other, and we have all of you to thank for much of that!!! By the way the vocals were incredible -- when you sang Andrea Boccelli I honestly thought you did it better than he does!!! We could not have been happier with all the music you provided for us!!!

"Flowed Really Well Thanks to Your Attention to Detail and the Schedule"

A. Pappelbaum - Bride

Just want you to know how much fun Shawn and I had at our wedding. The music was fabulous and added to the special moments starting with the ketubah signing, the processional, recessional, our entrance, the horah, first dances, our requests, your great voices, and your MC skills. Let's not forget the jumper cables, which got Shawn and I back to the hotel and our wedding night suite in record time. The wedding also flowed really well thanks to your attention to detail and the schedule.

"He Really Puts Together Amazing Bands. Our Band Was INCREDIBLE."

Alisa G. - Bride

This is one of the best vendors I had at my wedding. Robby is fantastic! He is so easy to work with, he is so friendly, and he really puts together amazing bands. Our band was INCREDIBLE, and all of our guests had a great time because of it.

"He Cares So Deeply About Each Client"

Justin L. - Groom

Spotlight Music absolutely hit a home run for our wedding. They kept people dancing all night (even after we had anticipated people would have gone home). Tons of our guests commented on how great the band was, and multiple people asked me for their name afterwards. The musicians were incredible, the singers were awesome, and the bandleader, Robby Helperin, was an excellent MC. He had the entire evening planned out and was so prepared that there was not a single glitch the whole night. In addition, he was great to work with from start to finish. I was amazed at how he cares so deeply about each client - far more than any other band we interviewed. I highly, highly recommend Spotlight.

"Exactly What We Wanted...Couldn't Be Happier."

Marissa M. - Bride

We are so appreciative and thrilled that Spotlight Music provided the musical entertainment from start to finish on our wedding day last month. Robby is the best! He made sure that every musical aspect of our wedding was meaningful and exactly what we wanted. He brilliantly orchestrated his band as well as the timeline of our wedding day so that everyone had a great time. His music provided a TON of energy and we couldn't be happier. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend.

"The Very Best Friend Any Wedding Could Ever Ask For"

Sara A. - Mother of the bride

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! You were the very best friend any wedding could ever ask for. The celebration was fabulous. Everything that could have gone right... DID! Hannah and Yos were thrilled... as were 400 other guests. Everyone is talking about the wedding... and YOU truly made it happen! Please thank all your musicians again. The band was outstanding! I only wish I had more daughters to marry off! We are forever grateful to you for making Hannah's wedding exceed our expectations! See you on the dance floor!

"We Could Not Have Asked for a Better Band"

Amy P. - Bride

We could not have asked for a better band for our wedding night! Spotlight music was referred to us by my husband's sister- Robby played at her wedding 10 years ago. We are so happy that we chose Spotlight music at our wedding in San Diego. Spotlight played really beautiful music at our ceremony and had the dance floor packed at all times for our reception. Our guests had so much fun and the energy was great. We loved Spotlight's music selection- they did a great job at reading the crowd and they played a lot of the artists that we had requested prior to our wedding. Being that we had a Jewish wedding, it was important to us that our band helped us to get everyone on the dance floor for the 'Horah,' Well, they did not disappoint- our Horah was very memorable for us and our guests. Robby was very professional in helping us prepare for our wedding night. He helped us put together our timeline for the evening so that our guests were entertained the whole night. I can honestly say that having Spotlight has a live band at our wedding made our night really fun. We danced the night away and had a blast! Thank you Robby and Spotlight music!!

You Will Dance Your Socks Off!

Marian M. - Parent of Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

We have used Spotlight Music for three events so far. Robby Helperin is so great to work with; he's so organized and thoroughly gets to know you and the celebrants and customized your event. He will work with your other vendors (like the photographer and video and AV and lighting people) and ensure everything goes smoothly. You will dance your socks off! Your guests will say they have never had so much fun! English, French, Hebrew, classical, rock, country - whatever you want to hear, I am sure Robby can make it happen!

"Robby Was Great to Work With...An Expert"

Shira B. - Bride

Robby and the whole Spotlight crew were wonderful for our wedding in January! I wanted an amazing hora and a sweaty, full dance floor, and I got both in spades! Robby was great to work with, even learning new songs that we were really excited about. He's such an expert that he reworked our entire wedding timeline to improve the flow. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Spotlight Music - testimonial - R Haber - bride

"Definitely Made Our Whole Wedding."

Rebecca H. - Bride

I can't say enough good things about Spotlight Music. To my husband and I, the most important thing about our wedding was the music -- we wanted an awesome live band. We live in LA but got married in Hawaii, so unfortunately even with a wedding planner the music options seemed slim. I found Robby at Spotlight music in LA and he coordinated an entire band for me, even flew musicians out from different islands to get the right fit. The band was AMAZING!! Definitely made our whole wedding. We wanted fun lively music, contemporary and some oldies, and they NAILED it, people were dancing the entire time. They even took requests and learned a song for our first dance, which was awesome, AND they backed me up to perfection while I sang "At Last" to my new husband! To top it off, they improved a hilarious fun song for my 1-year-old niece to bop around to. It was like having good friends (talented friends) play at your wedding. SO accommodating!!!!

"The End Result Was Perfection"

Boaz H. - Groom

We absolutely LOVED using Robby and his incredible Spotlight team. My wife and I were looking for a wedding band that could work with our budget, but not compromise the quality of things. Robby worked with us, told us the give and take of what different amounts of money would get us, and made SURE that one way or another no matter what we chose would still be good. He wasn't lying. We did not go with the more expensive options since we just couldn't, and yet the end result was perfection. He met with us, our wedding coordinator, made sure that each song would match up well to what the wedding party would walk down the aisle to, he also made great suggestions that we preferred over our ideas. Plus he is SO friendly, seriously, just an entirely warm and lovely guy, and since then we have recommended him and his company to countless (not exaggerating, actually so many I lost count) other parties, weddings, events, and each one has thanked us for it after. Easy to recommend this company for anyone!

"Great Professionals, Great Communication Skills"

Michael H. - Father of the bride

Spotlight Music put together a fantastic band for our daughter's wedding. Robby was great to work with and easily handled the job of pleasing both parents as well as the bride and groom. The musicians had a wide range of musical and vocal abilities. They were able to play all types of music. I had a special request that "You Are So Beautiful" be sung in its entirety––there are two verses which most people do not know. It was done beautifully. Great professionals, great communication skills. You will not be disappointed if you let Spotlight arrange the music for your event.

"Our Dance Floor Was PACKED All Night!"

Hannah A. - Bride

I cannot recommend Robby and Spotlight music highly enough. Robby was SO helpful, knowledgeable, kind, accommodating and organized during our whole planning process. He was so receptive to everything this bridezilla was asking for! Robby was so mindful to work within our budget, without sacrificing any quality. And boy did he do it spot on!!! The night itself couldn't have gone better, and all of Robby's recommendations were 100%. Our dance floor was PACKED all night! The guests were raving, and then for weeks people were telling us how sore their feet were from dancing for so long. Robby was also an incredible MC for the night... he has the best energy and just did the best job keeping the party going! I cannot thank you all enough!!!!

Spotlight Music - Testimonial - Rocky Z - groom

"You cannot go wrong with Robby and Spotlight Music!"

Rocky Z. - Groom

We met with Robby and gave him an outline of the kind of music, atmosphere, and theme we were planning for our big day. We also gave him our budget and worked with us on finding the perfect combination of musicians and singers that would suit us perfectly. Robby also patiently answered each question we had, responded quickly to each email (and there were a lot), and provide us with countless ideas to make our wedding day fantastic. He set us up with a terrific bandleader, Tom Bethke, who also served as our MC for the evening, and band members. The music was amazing! From the cocktail hour to the actual dance music, our guests constantly told us during and well after the wedding how much they loved the music. Most people often told us "you will not remember your wedding day" and "it goes by in a blur", but we remembered the band and the great music they played. Absolutely loved it! We also had Robby supply us with lights for our reception hall and they gave our wedding that extra touch of class. You cannot go wrong with Robby and Spotlight Music!

Spotlight Music - testimonial - Ari C - groom

"Unbelievable experience working with Robby. Highly, HIGHLY recommended."

Ari C. - Groom

Spotlight did my wedding and knocked it out of the park (and this coming for a music snob). From the first meeting, they were really as helpful as possible. They created a musical experience for a great price that perfectly reflected our vision. They pretty much customized EVERYTHING from the music, to the band, to the schedule. Speaking of the schedule, their knowledge and experience helped ask and answer many questions about the evening that hadn't been asked by us, our caterer, our florist, etc. Our wedding would have moved like an old desktop computer if not for Robby's efficient and informed scheduling and planning. Now onto the wedding itself. ALL we asked for was to learn a few songs by our favorite bands. For the musical experience to be funky and cool and feel totally organic. To have our a band that only played our ideal instruments (I don't like sax in rock bands; hey, I can't help it.) To have the Jewish music sound like real funk and have all the songs flow together without pause. Oh, and to do it all on our limited budget. Spotlight did it all and more. They played songs we asked for but said they didn't know. They honored our "no-play" list despite some requests by drunken guests. They jammed right through from one set to the next without a break when the schedule changed and I asked them to just keep rocking. It really was an unbelievable experience working with Robby. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.

"Everyone Keeps Talking About How Impressed They Were"

Alison S. - Bride

You will not be disappointed with Robby and his team. I first saw Robby play with 25+ musicians, and he was out of this world. But then I saw him again with only 5 others and he was just as good. I knew I wanted him to play my wedding and he blew it out of the park. The one thing everyone keeps talking about after the wedding is the music and how impressed they were. Robby sings in 10+ languages. We had a Jewish wedding, but he does everything. He learned songs for us and allowed us to pick our entire playlist. I would recommend him over and over again. Not to mention, he's just easy to work with. He actually made my planning experience enjoyable.

"I Was FLOORED"

Kiki W. - K-POP Musician

What an incredible show! I had the pleasure of seeing Robby Helperin in action at a wedding at the Four Seasons in Westlake and I was FLOORED. The performance sounded PITCH PERFECT and I've been personally playing music professionally for the past 7 years. The sound level was just right and not too loud, so guests could still have conversations and enjoy the ambiance. Overall, if I could give more stars, I would.

Robby was great to work with, even learning new songs that we were really excited about. He's such an expert that he reworked our entire wedding timeline to improve the flow. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

"Definitely Made Our Whole Wedding."

Rebecca H. - Bride

I can't say enough good things about Spotlight Music. To my husband and I, the most important thing about our wedding was the music -- we wanted an awesome live band. We live in LA but got married in Hawaii, so unfortunately even with a wedding planner the music options seemed slim. I found Robby at Spotlight music in LA and he coordinated an entire band for me, even flew musicians out from different islands to get the right fit. The band was AMAZING!! Definitely made our whole wedding. We wanted fun lively music, contemporary and some oldies, and they NAILED it, people were dancing the entire time. They even took requests and learned a song for our first dance, which was awesome, AND they backed me up to perfection while I sang "At Last" to my new husband! To top it off, they improved a hilarious fun song for my 1-year-old niece to bop around to. It was like having good friends (talented friends) play at your wedding. SO accommodating!!!!

"The End Result Was Perfection"

Boaz H. - Groom

We absolutely LOVED using Robby and his incredible Spotlight team. My wife and I were looking for a wedding band that could work with our budget, but not compromise the quality of things. Robby worked with us, told us the give and take of what different amounts of money would get us, and made SURE that one way or another no matter what we chose would still be good. He wasn't lying. We did not go with the more expensive options since we just couldn't, and yet the end result was perfection. He met with us, our wedding coordinator, made sure that each song would match up well to what the wedding party would walk down the aisle to, he also made great suggestions that we preferred over our ideas. Plus he is SO friendly, seriously, just an entirely warm and lovely guy, and since then we have recommended him and his company to countless (not exaggerating, actually so many I lost count) other parties, weddings, events, and each one has thanked us for it after. Easy to recommend this company for anyone!

"Great Professionals, Great Communication Skills"

Michael H. - Father of the bride

Spotlight Music put together a fantastic band for our daughter's wedding. Robby was great to work with and easily handled the job of pleasing both parents as well as the bride and groom. The musicians had a wide range of musical and vocal abilities. They were able to play all types of music. I had a special request that "You Are So Beautiful" be sung in its entirety––there are two verses which most people do not know. It was done beautifully. Great professionals, great communication skills. You will not be disappointed if you let Spotlight arrange the music for your event.

"Our Dance Floor Was PACKED All Night!"

Hannah A. - Bride

I cannot recommend Robby and Spotlight music highly enough. Robby was SO helpful, knowledgeable, kind, accommodating and organized during our whole planning process. He was so receptive to everything this bridezilla was asking for! Robby was so mindful to work within our budget, without sacrificing any quality. And boy did he do it spot on!!! The night itself couldn't have gone better, and all of Robby's recommendations were 100%. Our dance floor was PACKED all night! The guests were raving, and then for weeks people were telling us how sore their feet were from dancing for so long. Robby was also an incredible MC for the night... he has the best energy and just did the best job keeping the party going! I cannot thank you all enough!!!!

"You cannot go wrong with Robby and Spotlight Music!"

Rocky Z. - Groom

We met with Robby and gave him an outline of the kind of music, atmosphere, and theme we were planning for our big day. We also gave him our budget and worked with us on finding the perfect combination of musicians and singers that would suit us perfectly. Robby also patiently answered each question we had, responded quickly to each email (and there were a lot), and provide us with countless ideas to make our wedding day fantastic. He set us up with a terrific bandleader, Tom Bethke, who also served as our MC for the evening, and band members. The music was amazing! From the cocktail hour to the actual dance music, our guests constantly told us during and well after the wedding how much they loved the music. Most people often told us "you will not remember your wedding day" and "it goes by in a blur", but we remembered the band and the great music they played. Absolutely loved it! We also had Robby supply us with lights for our reception hall and they gave our wedding that extra touch of class. You cannot go wrong with Robby and Spotlight Music!

"Unbelievable experience working with Robby. Highly, HIGHLY recommended."

Ari C. - Groom

Spotlight did my wedding and knocked it out of the park (and this coming for a music snob). From the first meeting, they were really as helpful as possible. They created a musical experience for a great price that perfectly reflected our vision. They pretty much customized EVERYTHING from the music, to the band, to the schedule. Speaking of the schedule, their knowledge and experience helped ask and answer many questions about the evening that hadn't been asked by us, our caterer, our florist, etc. Our wedding would have moved like an old desktop computer if not for Robby's efficient and informed scheduling and planning. Now onto the wedding itself. ALL we asked for was to learn a few songs by our favorite bands. For the musical experience to be funky and cool and feel totally organic. To have our a band that only played our ideal instruments (I don't like sax in rock bands; hey, I can't help it.) To have the Jewish music sound like real funk and have all the songs flow together without pause. Oh, and to do it all on our limited budget. Spotlight did it all and more. They played songs we asked for but said they didn't know. They honored our "no-play" list despite some requests by drunken guests. They jammed right through from one set to the next without a break when the schedule changed and I asked them to just keep rocking. It really was an unbelievable experience working with Robby. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.

"Everyone Keeps Talking About How Impressed They Were"

Alison S. - Bride

You will not be disappointed with Robby and his team. I first saw Robby play with 25+ musicians, and he was out of this world. But then I saw him again with only 5 others and he was just as good. I knew I wanted him to play my wedding and he blew it out of the park. The one thing everyone keeps talking about after the wedding is the music and how impressed they were. Robby sings in 10+ languages. We had a Jewish wedding, but he does everything. He learned songs for us and allowed us to pick our entire playlist. I would recommend him over and over again. Not to mention, he's just easy to work with. He actually made my planning experience enjoyable.

"I Was FLOORED"

Kiki W. - K-POP Musician

What an incredible show! I had the pleasure of seeing Robby Helperin in action at a wedding at the Four Seasons in Westlake and I was FLOORED. The performance sounded PITCH PERFECT and I've been personally playing music professionally for the past 7 years. The sound level was just right and not too loud, so guests could still have conversations and enjoy the ambiance. Overall, if I could give more stars, I would.

A big Thank You for putting together a killer band for our wedding. They were FANTASTIC!! So genuinely talented, musical, energetic... people are still raving about them to us, and we could not have been happier that night. Also, I wanted to thank Benedict for going with the flow on the song we did together. He played beautifully, and was so nice to work with. Great personality and great musicians. All in all, I will go on to refer anyone I can to Spotlight Music. Thank you for going the extra mile to make me feel comfortable during the planning process and overjoyed by the performance!

Their flair for all kinds of music—the sounds and style, as well as a great repertoire—has something for everyone.

Robby Helperin and Spotlight Music are tops in my book!

Their flair for all kinds of music—the sounds and style, as well as a great repertoire—has something for everyone. My brides and grooms are just elated and my corporate clients leave completely satisfied. Robby’s professionalism and his kind, organized demeanor allow him to handle any situation.

"Our Family and Friends Still Cannot Stop Talking About You."

Mr. & Mrs. GaVoian - Parents of the Bride

I would like to thank you, and your musical group, on your stupendous performance at my daughter’s wedding. The male and female vocalists sang superbly. Their many genres and styles were impressive. Your brass section was as good as any studio musicians I’ve heard (I wouldn’t be surprised if they were). The equipment and sound system were first class, and the professional look and atmosphere created was nostalgic of the big band era, yet contemporary enough for our needs. Our family and friends still cannot stop talking about you. We have already had numerous inquiries into your background and contact information. I was also impressed with the sound level… it was at perfect range. It was loud enough for the people who danced, and at the same time it allowed the guests to enjoy conversation. Your music was both inspiring and instrumental to the success of our wedding event and for this, we thank you. We will most definitely consider you for our next event.

"It Always Helps to Know That You’re the Guy in Charge of All the Music!"

A. & P. Klitofsky, parents of the groom

Thank you so much for helping make Wayne and Lauren’s wedding such a swinging success and so much fun. It always helps to know that you’re the guy in charge of all the music! We wish you all the best and hope to see you on a dance floor soon.

"Everyone... Complimented Us on the Excellent Choice of the Band."

S. Jahn, Mother of the Bride

I want to thank you and your band for the amazing music and entertainment you provided at Jenny and Josh’s wedding. I can’t begin to tell you how much fun everyone had, including me! I love to dance (as you may have noted) and had an unbelievable time throughout the entire reception. Everyone has gone on and on with their positive comments and have complimented us on the excellent choice of the band. Here’s an example of just one of the many comments we have heard: ‘Good work on the band. That choice can either make or break a wedding. It was perfect!’ Thanks for helping to make this special occasion a fun and memorable one in our lives.

"Heart and Soul of the Party... You Made It Well Worth the Eight Pieces."

L. & J. Mark, Parents of the Bride

Thank you so much for being the heart and soul of the party for the reception at Joanna’s and David’s wedding at the Ojai Valley Inn. You made it well worth the eight pieces. The kids wanted a party, and your music gave it to them. The music for all the specialty dances was perfectly played, and you kept everyone wanting to dance the night away, which we sure did. Even when the hotel fuses blew, you kept right on keeping on. It was a great event for both families, and your “soundtrack” made it all the more fantastic. Thanks again.

"People Said We Had the Best Wedding Band They've Ever Heard."

"Such an Eclectic Range of Expertise!"

V. Yaghoobian - Bride (A Jonathan Reeves Wedding)

I got married this past weekend at the Beverly Hills Hotel in the Crystal Ballroom, and Robby Helperin led the band. It was the best night of my life, and I owe a lot of that to him. The music was fantastic, exactly what my husband and I wanted. All our friends were on the dance floor the entire night....we were all sweating our butts off! Just how I wanted the night to turn out. Robby was also so great about communicating before the actual wedding. It was easy to get a hold of him, and he was also open to our suggestions. He's a very talented musician and has such an eclectic range of expertise! - V-Yaghoobian - (A Jonathan Reeves Wedding)

"He Couldn't Sleep That Night Because of All the Good Energy He Felt From the Music"

Samantha B. - Bride

5 Stars - If I could give more stars, I would. They were incredible!!! I used them for both the ceremony and reception. The band leader, Robby, helped me pick out the songs to walk down the aisle to. Everyone loved it and told me how beautiful they thought it was. My friend says she wants the exact same song selection for when she gets married. At the reception they played different styles of music according to what we wanted and did both perfectly. Also, they make it a point not to play too loud so that people are able to have a good time but also talk. This was important to many of my guests and they did a perfect job. They got everyone on the dance floor and kept my friends dancing all night long. One of my friends even said he couldn't sleep that night because of all the good energy he felt from the music at our wedding. My friends who are getting married want to use Spotlight for their wedding too because they liked it so much. Robby also made the schedule for my wedding and worked with my other vendors to make everything happen. They also worked with my fiance who surprised me by playing a song for me on stage. Spotlight Music was more than just my band. They were a big element to making my wedding a success.

"Far Exceeded Our Expectations!!"

J. Ghozland - Bride

Amazing!!! Spotlight music was great!! We had music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and We had a 7 piece band for the reception. They played such good music, and their voices are incredible. They kept everyone dancing the whole night and went off the vibe of the crowd. Far exceeded our expectations!! Highly recommend.

"The Party Was the Best – Superior to Any Other...Everyone Raved About Your Band"

A. Minteer - Bride

Your music was phenomenal! The voices and musicians were first-rate. Everyone had a marvelous time and largely because you were so good at gauging the crowd – what they liked – and fairly representing all the groups at the party!!! Everyone raved about your band and I gave your name and info to many people!!! We all agree the party was the best -- superior to any other, and we have all of you to thank for much of that!!! By the way the vocals were incredible -- when you sang Andrea Boccelli I honestly thought you did it better than he does!!! We could not have been happier with all the music you provided for us!!!

Just want you to know how much fun Shawn and I had at our wedding. The music was fabulous and added to the special moments starting with the ketubah signing, the processional, recessional, our entrance, the horah, first dances, our requests, your great voices, and your MC skills. Let's not forget the jumper cables, which got Shawn and I back to the hotel and our wedding night suite in record time. The wedding also flowed really well thanks to your attention to detail and the schedule.

"He Really Puts Together Amazing Bands. Our Band Was INCREDIBLE."

Alisa G. - Bride

This is one of the best vendors I had at my wedding. Robby is fantastic! He is so easy to work with, he is so friendly, and he really puts together amazing bands. Our band was INCREDIBLE, and all of our guests had a great time because of it.

"He Cares So Deeply About Each Client"

Justin L. - Groom

Spotlight Music absolutely hit a home run for our wedding. They kept people dancing all night (even after we had anticipated people would have gone home). Tons of our guests commented on how great the band was, and multiple people asked me for their name afterwards. The musicians were incredible, the singers were awesome, and the bandleader, Robby Helperin, was an excellent MC. He had the entire evening planned out and was so prepared that there was not a single glitch the whole night. In addition, he was great to work with from start to finish. I was amazed at how he cares so deeply about each client - far more than any other band we interviewed. I highly, highly recommend Spotlight.

"Exactly What We Wanted...Couldn't Be Happier."

Marissa M. - Bride

We are so appreciative and thrilled that Spotlight Music provided the musical entertainment from start to finish on our wedding day last month. Robby is the best! He made sure that every musical aspect of our wedding was meaningful and exactly what we wanted. He brilliantly orchestrated his band as well as the timeline of our wedding day so that everyone had a great time. His music provided a TON of energy and we couldn't be happier. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend.

"The Very Best Friend Any Wedding Could Ever Ask For"

Sara A. - Mother of the bride

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! You were the very best friend any wedding could ever ask for. The celebration was fabulous. Everything that could have gone right... DID! Hannah and Yos were thrilled... as were 400 other guests. Everyone is talking about the wedding... and YOU truly made it happen! Please thank all your musicians again. The band was outstanding! I only wish I had more daughters to marry off! We are forever grateful to you for making Hannah's wedding exceed our expectations! See you on the dance floor!

"We Could Not Have Asked for a Better Band"

Amy P. - Bride

We could not have asked for a better band for our wedding night! Spotlight music was referred to us by my husband's sister- Robby played at her wedding 10 years ago. We are so happy that we chose Spotlight music at our wedding in San Diego. Spotlight played really beautiful music at our ceremony and had the dance floor packed at all times for our reception. Our guests had so much fun and the energy was great. We loved Spotlight's music selection- they did a great job at reading the crowd and they played a lot of the artists that we had requested prior to our wedding. Being that we had a Jewish wedding, it was important to us that our band helped us to get everyone on the dance floor for the 'Horah,' Well, they did not disappoint- our Horah was very memorable for us and our guests. Robby was very professional in helping us prepare for our wedding night. He helped us put together our timeline for the evening so that our guests were entertained the whole night. I can honestly say that having Spotlight has a live band at our wedding made our night really fun. We danced the night away and had a blast! Thank you Robby and Spotlight music!!

He will work with your other vendors (like the photographer and video and AV and lighting people) and ensure everything goes smoothly. You will dance your socks off! Your guests will say they have never had so much fun! English, French, Hebrew, classical, rock, country - whatever you want to hear, I am sure Robby can make it happen!

He's a very talented musician and has such an eclectic range of expertise! - V-Yaghoobian - (A Jonathan Reeves Wedding)

"He Couldn't Sleep That Night Because of All the Good Energy He Felt From the Music"

Samantha B. - Bride

5 Stars - If I could give more stars, I would. They were incredible!!! I used them for both the ceremony and reception. The band leader, Robby, helped me pick out the songs to walk down the aisle to. Everyone loved it and told me how beautiful they thought it was. My friend says she wants the exact same song selection for when she gets married. At the reception they played different styles of music according to what we wanted and did both perfectly. Also, they make it a point not to play too loud so that people are able to have a good time but also talk. This was important to many of my guests and they did a perfect job. They got everyone on the dance floor and kept my friends dancing all night long. One of my friends even said he couldn't sleep that night because of all the good energy he felt from the music at our wedding. My friends who are getting married want to use Spotlight for their wedding too because they liked it so much. Robby also made the schedule for my wedding and worked with my other vendors to make everything happen. They also worked with my fiance who surprised me by playing a song for me on stage. Spotlight Music was more than just my band. They were a big element to making my wedding a success.

"Far Exceeded Our Expectations!!"

J. Ghozland - Bride

Amazing!!! Spotlight music was great!! We had music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and We had a 7 piece band for the reception. They played such good music, and their voices are incredible. They kept everyone dancing the whole night and went off the vibe of the crowd. Far exceeded our expectations!! Highly recommend.

"The Party Was the Best – Superior to Any Other...Everyone Raved About Your Band"

A. Minteer - Bride

Your music was phenomenal! The voices and musicians were first-rate. Everyone had a marvelous time and largely because you were so good at gauging the crowd – what they liked – and fairly representing all the groups at the party!!! Everyone raved about your band and I gave your name and info to many people!!! We all agree the party was the best -- superior to any other, and we have all of you to thank for much of that!!! By the way the vocals were incredible -- when you sang Andrea Boccelli I honestly thought you did it better than he does!!! We could not have been happier with all the music you provided for us!!!

"Flowed Really Well Thanks to Your Attention to Detail and the Schedule"

A. Pappelbaum - Bride

Just want you to know how much fun Shawn and I had at our wedding. The music was fabulous and added to the special moments starting with the ketubah signing, the processional, recessional, our entrance, the horah, first dances, our requests, your great voices, and your MC skills. Let's not forget the jumper cables, which got Shawn and I back to the hotel and our wedding night suite in record time. The wedding also flowed really well thanks to your attention to detail and the schedule.

"He Really Puts Together Amazing Bands. Our Band Was INCREDIBLE."

Alisa G. - Bride

This is one of the best vendors I had at my wedding. Robby is fantastic! He is so easy to work with, he is so friendly, and he really puts together amazing bands. Our band was INCREDIBLE, and all of our guests had a great time because of it.

"He Cares So Deeply About Each Client"

Justin L. - Groom

Spotlight Music absolutely hit a home run for our wedding. They kept people dancing all night (even after we had anticipated people would have gone home). Tons of our guests commented on how great the band was, and multiple people asked me for their name afterwards. The musicians were incredible, the singers were awesome, and the bandleader, Robby Helperin, was an excellent MC. He had the entire evening planned out and was so prepared that there was not a single glitch the whole night. In addition, he was great to work with from start to finish. I was amazed at how he cares so deeply about each client - far more than any other band we interviewed. I highly, highly recommend Spotlight.

"Exactly What We Wanted...Couldn't Be Happier."

Marissa M. - Bride

We are so appreciative and thrilled that Spotlight Music provided the musical entertainment from start to finish on our wedding day last month. Robby is the best! He made sure that every musical aspect of our wedding was meaningful and exactly what we wanted. He brilliantly orchestrated his band as well as the timeline of our wedding day so that everyone had a great time. His music provided a TON of energy and we couldn't be happier. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend.

"The Very Best Friend Any Wedding Could Ever Ask For"

Sara A. - Mother of the bride

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! You were the very best friend any wedding could ever ask for. The celebration was fabulous. Everything that could have gone right... DID! Hannah and Yos were thrilled... as were 400 other guests. Everyone is talking about the wedding... and YOU truly made it happen! Please thank all your musicians again. The band was outstanding! I only wish I had more daughters to marry off! We are forever grateful to you for making Hannah's wedding exceed our expectations! See you on the dance floor!

"We Could Not Have Asked for a Better Band"

Amy P. - Bride

We could not have asked for a better band for our wedding night! Spotlight music was referred to us by my husband's sister- Robby played at her wedding 10 years ago. We are so happy that we chose Spotlight music at our wedding in San Diego. Spotlight played really beautiful music at our ceremony and had the dance floor packed at all times for our reception. Our guests had so much fun and the energy was great. We loved Spotlight's music selection- they did a great job at reading the crowd and they played a lot of the artists that we had requested prior to our wedding. Being that we had a Jewish wedding, it was important to us that our band helped us to get everyone on the dance floor for the 'Horah,' Well, they did not disappoint- our Horah was very memorable for us and our guests. Robby was very professional in helping us prepare for our wedding night. He helped us put together our timeline for the evening so that our guests were entertained the whole night. I can honestly say that having Spotlight has a live band at our wedding made our night really fun. We danced the night away and had a blast! Thank you Robby and Spotlight music!!

You Will Dance Your Socks Off!

Marian M. - Parent of Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

We have used Spotlight Music for three events so far. Robby Helperin is so great to work with; he's so organized and thoroughly gets to know you and the celebrants and customized your event. He will work with your other vendors (like the photographer and video and AV and lighting people) and ensure everything goes smoothly. You will dance your socks off! Your guests will say they have never had so much fun! English, French, Hebrew, classical, rock, country - whatever you want to hear, I am sure Robby can make it happen!

"Robby Was Great to Work With...An Expert"

Shira B. - Bride

Robby and the whole Spotlight crew were wonderful for our wedding in January! I wanted an amazing hora and a sweaty, full dance floor, and I got both in spades! Robby was great to work with, even learning new songs that we were really excited about. He's such an expert that he reworked our entire wedding timeline to improve the flow. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

"Definitely Made Our Whole Wedding."

Rebecca H. - Bride

I can't say enough good things about Spotlight Music. To my husband and I, the most important thing about our wedding was the music -- we wanted an awesome live band. We live in LA but got married in Hawaii, so unfortunately even with a wedding planner the music options seemed slim. I found Robby at Spotlight music in LA and he coordinated an entire band for me, even flew musicians out from different islands to get the right fit. The band was AMAZING!! Definitely made our whole wedding. We wanted fun lively music, contemporary and some oldies, and they NAILED it, people were dancing the entire time. They even took requests and learned a song for our first dance, which was awesome, AND they backed me up to perfection while I sang "At Last" to my new husband! To top it off, they improved a hilarious fun song for my 1-year-old niece to bop around to. It was like having good friends (talented friends) play at your wedding. SO accommodating!!!!

"The End Result Was Perfection"

Boaz H. - Groom

We absolutely LOVED using Robby and his incredible Spotlight team. My wife and I were looking for a wedding band that could work with our budget, but not compromise the quality of things. Robby worked with us, told us the give and take of what different amounts of money would get us, and made SURE that one way or another no matter what we chose would still be good. He wasn't lying. We did not go with the more expensive options since we just couldn't, and yet the end result was perfection. He met with us, our wedding coordinator, made sure that each song would match up well to what the wedding party would walk down the aisle to, he also made great suggestions that we preferred over our ideas. Plus he is SO friendly, seriously, just an entirely warm and lovely guy, and since then we have recommended him and his company to countless (not exaggerating, actually so many I lost count) other parties, weddings, events, and each one has thanked us for it after. Easy to recommend this company for anyone!

"Great Professionals, Great Communication Skills"

Michael H. - Father of the bride

Spotlight Music put together a fantastic band for our daughter's wedding. Robby was great to work with and easily handled the job of pleasing both parents as well as the bride and groom. The musicians had a wide range of musical and vocal abilities. They were able to play all types of music. I had a special request that "You Are So Beautiful" be sung in its entirety––there are two verses which most people do not know. It was done beautifully. Great professionals, great communication skills. You will not be disappointed if you let Spotlight arrange the music for your event.

"Our Dance Floor Was PACKED All Night!"

Hannah A. - Bride

I cannot recommend Robby and Spotlight music highly enough. Robby was SO helpful, knowledgeable, kind, accommodating and organized during our whole planning process. He was so receptive to everything this bridezilla was asking for! Robby was so mindful to work within our budget, without sacrificing any quality. And boy did he do it spot on!!! The night itself couldn't have gone better, and all of Robby's recommendations were 100%. Our dance floor was PACKED all night! The guests were raving, and then for weeks people were telling us how sore their feet were from dancing for so long. Robby was also an incredible MC for the night... he has the best energy and just did the best job keeping the party going! I cannot thank you all enough!!!!

"You cannot go wrong with Robby and Spotlight Music!"

Rocky Z. - Groom

We met with Robby and gave him an outline of the kind of music, atmosphere, and theme we were planning for our big day. We also gave him our budget and worked with us on finding the perfect combination of musicians and singers that would suit us perfectly. Robby also patiently answered each question we had, responded quickly to each email (and there were a lot), and provide us with countless ideas to make our wedding day fantastic. He set us up with a terrific bandleader, Tom Bethke, who also served as our MC for the evening, and band members. The music was amazing! From the cocktail hour to the actual dance music, our guests constantly told us during and well after the wedding how much they loved the music. Most people often told us "you will not remember your wedding day" and "it goes by in a blur", but we remembered the band and the great music they played. Absolutely loved it! We also had Robby supply us with lights for our reception hall and they gave our wedding that extra touch of class. You cannot go wrong with Robby and Spotlight Music!

"Unbelievable experience working with Robby. Highly, HIGHLY recommended."

Ari C. - Groom

Spotlight did my wedding and knocked it out of the park (and this coming for a music snob). From the first meeting, they were really as helpful as possible. They created a musical experience for a great price that perfectly reflected our vision. They pretty much customized EVERYTHING from the music, to the band, to the schedule. Speaking of the schedule, their knowledge and experience helped ask and answer many questions about the evening that hadn't been asked by us, our caterer, our florist, etc. Our wedding would have moved like an old desktop computer if not for Robby's efficient and informed scheduling and planning. Now onto the wedding itself. ALL we asked for was to learn a few songs by our favorite bands. For the musical experience to be funky and cool and feel totally organic. To have our a band that only played our ideal instruments (I don't like sax in rock bands; hey, I can't help it.) To have the Jewish music sound like real funk and have all the songs flow together without pause. Oh, and to do it all on our limited budget. Spotlight did it all and more. They played songs we asked for but said they didn't know. They honored our "no-play" list despite some requests by drunken guests. They jammed right through from one set to the next without a break when the schedule changed and I asked them to just keep rocking. It really was an unbelievable experience working with Robby. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.

"Everyone Keeps Talking About How Impressed They Were"

Alison S. - Bride

You will not be disappointed with Robby and his team. I first saw Robby play with 25+ musicians, and he was out of this world. But then I saw him again with only 5 others and he was just as good. I knew I wanted him to play my wedding and he blew it out of the park. The one thing everyone keeps talking about after the wedding is the music and how impressed they were. Robby sings in 10+ languages. We had a Jewish wedding, but he does everything. He learned songs for us and allowed us to pick our entire playlist. I would recommend him over and over again. Not to mention, he's just easy to work with. He actually made my planning experience enjoyable.

"I Was FLOORED"

Kiki W. - K-POP Musician

What an incredible show! I had the pleasure of seeing Robby Helperin in action at a wedding at the Four Seasons in Westlake and I was FLOORED. The performance sounded PITCH PERFECT and I've been personally playing music professionally for the past 7 years. The sound level was just right and not too loud, so guests could still have conversations and enjoy the ambiance. Overall, if I could give more stars, I would.
