Bigg Romeo, Philadelphia's Party Band is a 9 piece high-energy wedding and dance band specializing in the hits of today as well as the Dance, New Wave, Pop and Rock of the 60’s, 70’s, 80s and 90s. Our Jazz and Motown Standards along with our Oldies Medleys are sure to please audiences of all ages and musical tastes while they dance the night away to the rhythms and beats of yesterday and today.

The Bigg Romeo wedding band is the only choice when a full dance floor is your top priority in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas.With thousands of songs in our arsenal, we perform the music that you and your guests want to hear. Most importantly, we perform at a volume level acceptable to each guest and appropriate to the size and set up of your reception or event area.From an elegant, sophisticated cocktail hour and dinner service to a high-energy dance party, Bigg Romeo's unmatched talent, versatility, professionalism and personalized approach will allow you to create the wedding or special event of your dreams.'

Since 1996 Bigg Romeo has been fronted by Sandy Costello and Franco Sicilia. This charismatic duo brings the stage to life with an electric performance and powerhouse vocals. Each member of Bigg Romeo sings both lead and back-up vocals, adding to the melodies and harmonies from the songs you’ve grown to know and love. Andrea Baretto adds a third lead singer and 6th harmony to the band. Add the "Feel the Love" horns and we have a party your family will be talking about for years to come. This is just a small part of what makes Bigg Romeo the best in the Philadelphia wedding market.

There is no need to plan the finer touches of your event with a manager or other non-musician who will not be available to you during your reception. From arrival to introductions; through your first dance and song selection, our Band Leader is your single point of contact throughout all the planning stages of your event.Your satisfaction is our main goal, and we know that that our music plays an essential role in your party's success. It is our mission to consistently exceed our client’s expectations by providing outstanding musicianship and exceptional care in the planning and execution of the music for their wedding or special event. Bigg Romeo is not an entertainment agency or orchestra with many bands and various musicians that tend to get "mixed and matched". Bigg Romeo is one band of professional musicians who have rehearsed and played together for 14 years. All members have years of formal musical training and theatrical experience. The band that you hire is the one that will perform at your reception: the one and only Bigg Romeo.




Check out our a testimonial from Barbie Andretti - I can't thank Franco and Bigg Romeo enough. I got married on Oct. 17, 2009. I have to admit, I was nervous because I am such a control freak when it comes to my party music, but despite a few tantrums along the planning trail, Franco had enormous patience and I appreciate that. The night was incredible due in hugely because of Bigg Romeo and their incredible talent. They made our reception perfect!! We will definitely be using them in the future and we have told everyone how great they are. We recommend them to all of you. If you want fantastic variety, professionalism and sheer talent, hire Franco!!!! We really can't thank you enough for contributing to one of our most important nights of our lives!! Much Love! Barbra Andretti

Couldn't ask for a better band experience! Bigg Romeo got all of our guests up dancing and sweating nonstop. Franco was so professional and accommodating and even got us through the Category 3 hurricane on our wedding day. They play a wide array of material. You won't have to worry about anyone not having a good time. So many "most fun wedding I've been to" comments from my guests thanks to Bigg Romeo!

Bigg Romeo was the best! We could not have asked for a better wedding band and band leader. Franco was a pleasure to work with from the start - very responsive, friendly and open to suggestion. The band learned several songs just for us and played them perfectly on the big day, including my husband's favorite - Remix to Ignition. They even invited him to sing with the band and it made his night! We had a wedding of 130 people who love to party and the band's fantastic energy really set the mood for an unforgettable, fun-filled night. Franco went above and beyond, even taking photos and video for us after our photographer and videographer left for the night. Having a kickass band was one of the highest priorities for us and we definitely made the right choice with Bigg Romeo.

Where can I even begin?!?!? Bigg Romeo was fantastic to work with from beginning to end. Franco is very professional and responsive when it comes to planning for the big day. Anything I asked for, he made sure it happened! On the night of the wedding, Bigg Romeo had to dance floor rocking. Our guest barely even wanted to sit down to eat their dinner! I love how Franco and the band interact with the guest throughout the night. The two female singers (Sandy and Andrea) come out on the dance floor and really get the crowd going by sharing the microphone and dancing right along with them. I highly recommend Bigg Romeo to any couple who are getting married. A band (especially Bigg Romeo) makes the night so much more memorable.

My husband and I loved having Bigg Romeo as our wedding band. We had seen them at a wedding 2 years before we even got engaged and when we sat down to start thinking about our vendors, we knew that we had to have them! Franco is the absolute best! He was so patient with us and answered all of our little annoying questions that we had. The band even learned a couple of our must play songs for us. Since Franco knew that we were both huge Bruce fans, he and the band had the wedding party entrance song be 10th Ave Freeze Out, perfect! Franco even came and got me towards the end of the night because I had been too busy talking to people and had not been out on the dance floor nearly enough. The band takes action shot pictures through out the night and posts them the next day, it was a great way to see pictures of the wedding before our photographer could get us a sneak peak! John and I would recommend Bigg Romeo to everyone! Thank you!!!

Simone - We promised to be your advocates and make sure you and John could have some fun and we did our best! There is nothing like happy exhaustion sometimes and it was so much fun we were all feeling it the next morning. We even helped you sneak a few private moments in with your new husband. That's what it's all about. Thank you for trusting us with your special day and we will see you soon!

If I could give more than 5/5 stars I would. Franco the band leader is awesome- he's personable, considerate, hilarious, and professional. The passion that he has for the band is so clear from talking with him, seeing him perform, and his pictures and posts on social media. Yes we are facebook and instagram friends! My husband and I and our families saw the band perform last summer after we had booked with them just to see what we were in for. We knew from the first song that our wedding was going to be rockin! We went up to introduce ourselves and he knew exactly who we were when we said our names. Our expectations were met and exceeded at our reception. The energy in the room was insane, and everyone danced the entire night. The caterer actually had to ask the band to take an early break because no one wanted to sit down to eat dinner! Our favorite part was the last song of the night- Franco knew that I was bummed about missing the Taylor Swift concert that was happening the same night (because we are facebook friends), so he surprised us by inviting my husband and I to sing "Shake it Off" on stage! It was such as fun experience and made us feel like celebrities. We are excited to continue seeing the band in action at different bars and casinos in the area for as long as they are performing. We decided to splurge on a band even though DJs are much cheaper, but it was so worth the cost. Every guest commented on how amazing the band was and several people said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. So much love!

If I could give Bigg Romeo 10 stars I would.

After seeing Bigg Romeo play for years, there was no doubt in my mind I wanted them to play my wedding. The energy and talent they bring is unmatched. I had been to weddings with a DJ and there was hardly anyone on the dance floor, and I had been to weddings with bands that had absolutely no chemistry or personality and they looked as if they were only there for the paycheck. Bigg Romeo blows them all out of the water. From the first song I could see that all my guests were blown away and everyone still talks about them. They get to know you and your preferences so your wedding is personalized for you while still playing the classics and the new stuff everyone sings along to. They learned a song for our first dance that they will probably NEVER play again. Franco is truly a bride's best friend. In all our pre-wedding prep calls, he went over everything, was always super easy to get ahold of through calls, emails, & texts, and even talked me and the hubby out of an intro song that we were dead set on that really would have sucked. Franco did all the emceeing for the intros and made the night flow smoothly, from the intros, to our first dance and parent dances, to cutting the cake and the anniversary dance. Bigg Romeo also did my ceremony music which beats the heck out of someone pushing play on a laptop connected to speakers. The band interacts with the bride and groom and the entire dance floor, passing the mic off to guests (nothing like the groom and groomsmen singing Shake it Off) and they even let my uncle play a song on guitar. Every single member of Bigg Romeo has an insane amount of talent, and for as long as they have been together, they really know what they are doing and they have it down to an art. The best part about them? I can go and seem them year round, either in the burbs or down the shore. Bigg Romeo is truly the best band around and you would be making a mistake choosing anyone else.

My mom ended up going to a wedding where Bigg Romeo played and could not stop raving about it. As soon as I got engaged, they were the first band I called and thankfully they had my date open. Franco is super easy to work with and extremely down to earth. They were amazing from the moment the wedding started until it ended. I still get compliments from people today about how awesome our band was!!

I can not say anything bad about Franco and the rest of the Bigg Romeo band. They are truly amazing and talent individuals and were such a delight to work with. My husband Brian and I first heard them play at the Eden Lounge in Harrahs in AC about two years prior to our engagement and I remember telling him that when I get married this band is playing at my wedding. I remember going to the lounge for a drink after dinner and we end up staying the whole night listening to them. When I first talked to Franco he was so polite and easy to talk to and very professional throughout the whole experience. My wedding was a night I will never forget and not just because I married my best friend but I knew everyone was having as much fun as I was. When you looked around hardly anyone was sitting everyone was jumping up and down on the dance floor. Bigg Romeo really knows how to get the party started and last. I am so blessd Bigg Romeo was available to play at my wedding because they made it that much sweeter. If you are looking for an experienced, talented and reasonable band I would highly recommend them.
