Be sure to check out the list of assorted talent we feature the next time you look for bands for weddings. We are also located in Chicago. 


What is a Processional

Processional refers to the formal entrances of family and bridal party. It also refers to the pieces of music we’ll play during these entrances. These special entrances include:

  1. Family: Parents, grandparents, and any other family or honored guests
  2. Attendants: Bridesmaids, groomsmen, and any flower girls and/or ring bearers
  3. The Bride


We often play a piece for family, then change the music and play another piece for attendants, and a third for the bride’s entrance. Many couples opt for a single piece for family and attendants if the processional distance is short or if there are fewer than three or four people in each group.


Our Live Musicians Are The Best Choice!

From intimate soloists to lush string quartets, we provide many different combinations of musicians for your wedding entertainment. Founded in 1997, Tropics Entertainment is an entertainment production company specializing in live music for private events. Although we book around 250 events per year, we are not a traditional booking agency. We carefully select each musician and performer. Our bands are created from scratch with a specific focus on high-end weddings, corporate events, and social gatherings.


A crucial difference in our bands is that in addition to playing special events, they perform in nightclubs from Miami to Palm Beach. This makes our groups a bit more “edgy” – nightclub guests want to hear all the new hit songs. All professional bands know the oldies, but these bands are required to stay very current. With flawless transitions between songs, our bands think like a DJ and sound like the artist in concert! 


When it comes to designing your event, each of our bands has a coordinator who works in our office. Our coordinator will guide you through the process of customizing the event: selecting music, submitting special requests, and planning the timeline. One of our band coordinators will also be at the event to manage the musicians and assist with the timeline and formalities.

Our winning formula of stellar service and seamless production has placed Tropics at the forefront of elite entertainment providers nationwide. We take pride in providing the highest level of service while bringing non-stop energy to every party.
