The Nightshift Band is one of Chicago's most exciting party bands electrifying audiences for 20 years. Playing approximately 150 events annually they perform for weddings, corporate parties, national and state associations, conventions and galas. We have 3,000 satisfied clients to prove it! 

Jeff Rutter is a very dynamic singer/musician/performer, who leads this very talented organization with an enthusiasm which is felt by every member of the Band, as well as your guests. All the musicians in Chicago know Jeff's incredible skills on guitar, his ability to read an audience, and make any event...SPECTACULAR! The Nightshift Band will electrify your guests playing Big Band, Motown, R & B, Rock N' Roll, and Contemporary Hits!

The Nightshift Band ranges in size from 7 - 15 pieces! As a 10 piece, the fun begins with 3 dynamic singers up front, who are terrific vocalists, but also outstanding performers! Three of the musicians are also wonderful singers which gives The Nightshift Band tremendous vocal power. Also, with 6 singers, every vocal performer can be reminiscent of the original artists. All selections are then seasoned with rich background harmonies to create that full, authentic, professional sound!

When The Nightshift Band was formed, we looked for multi-talented musicians who love to perform and give it 100% every night. There is a difference! When your guests see a band playing at a very high level, interacting with the crowd, that enthusiasm becomes contagious. The Nightshift Band has an outstanding horn section from 3 to 6 horns, and a tight rhythm section of keyboards, bass, drums, & guitar. Seven of these musicians have been playing together for 20 years!

Having played 3,000 events, The Nightshift Band has performed in almost every hotel, convention center, private club and banquet facility in the metro Chicago Area. As a result, many of the special event directors at these facilities recommend the Nightshift Band to their various clients, which is a very strong endorsement!

We were very pleased with how the night went, and we also received many compliments from our guests about the music! Thank you for all you did to make our night so enjoyable! You are always a name I give when friends get engaged, and we will continue to pass your name along. We had a blast, and I hope we see you again at another beautiful wedding.
Thanks again!

Our family and friends had a great time dancing the night away. As you can see my husband and I are descendants of the Disco era! And we joyfully passed down our skills to our beautiful girls.

The music combined with the setting was magical. I’m certain you have heard this before, but we just don’t know where the evening disappeared to.

Thank you for being a part of a very memorial family occasion.

What a beautiful wedding day we had for our little princess! Thank you for a pleasurable year of preparation. Everything about you and Prism Entertainment is professional and fun. The music was amazing! The trio and the full band were exactly what we had imagined. The Groom and his Father forgot their steps, but it didn't matter. I think it was a treat for our guests to have live music, and the dance floor was full. Thanks again, and I will certainly recommend The Nightshift Band to any that asks. Have a great year!

We have great pictures of the band if you are interested let me know.

Thanks so much again!
