We can not say enough good things about David, and either can our guests!
David played piano and sang during our wedding ceremony and stole the show. The wedding was three weeks ago and we are still receiving compliments on his magnificent performance.
In addition to be an incredibly talented musician David was also an absolute joy to work with. He recommended songs based on what we liked, and helped guide us through the entire planning process. On the day of the wedding David showed up early to make sure everything was in order, and worked seamlessly with the wedding coordinator.
We could not have been luckier to have found David on GigSalad and would happily recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding musician!
Thank you David for an incredible performance that we will cherish for the rest of our marriage!
Response from David Wilner:
Laura and Tyler,
You are incredibly welcome! It was an absolute honor to play such an important role in your wedding day. I'm thrilled that you and your guests enjoyed my playing and singing so much, and thank you for your kind words of praise. I hope to see you two again someday soon, hopefully in the audience at one of my shows! :)
Wishing you all the best,
David did a great job at our conference's welcome reception; on time, professional and entertaining. Definitely recommend him.

Chicago native David Wilner writes and performs original pop/rock songs, combining his powerful solo vocals, uniquely expressive keyboard skills, and thought-provoking lyrics.
David began his professional music career as the leader of the highly acclaimed vocal quintet Blind Man’s Bluff. For six years, David and BMB toured the country, performing as many as 200 shows a year. David’s band was nominated as “College Music Artist of the Year” by the National Association for Campus Activities. Their independently produced albums sold over 20,000 copies worldwide.
After the band separated, David recorded his debut solo album, Never Too Late. In the years since then he has performed in support of his CD, introducing his solo repertoire to clubs, coffeehouses, and colleges in the Chicago area and across the nation.
David decided to put his microphone skills and natural stage presence to work in a second discipline, joining the elite team of disc jockeys at Sounds Abound Entertainment in Naperville, Illinois. David has become one of the most popular party emcees in the entire Chicagoland area.
Today, David is on stage as often as possible: performing solo, playing with his band, leading events as a DJ, singing in the vocal harmony quartet Ac·Rock, and as a featured performer in the Frankie Valli and The Four Season’s tribute band The Four C Notes.
