Sid Miller Dance Band was simply incredible. They made the wedding. Their talents are outstanding, it felt like you were at a concert. My guests have not stopped raving about the band, simply the best wedding entertainment anyone had experienced at a wedding before. No one sat down the entire evening. The planning process was fun and easy with Sid. He is extremely quick to respond to emails and phone calls, adds his experienced advice when planning the timeline of your day, and makes sure to learn any special song requests you have. He is the best, so kind and such an amazing talent. This band ROCKS!

Big Ric Rising was ABSOLUTELY phenomenal! Not only does Ric and his crew have great musical talent but Ric's energy was contagious. From the moment the doors opened to the party the floor was packed until the moment the last note was played. Ric made us feel comfortable from the first conversation and we knew we were in GREAT hands. If you want to have a top notch wedding look no further!

Jellyroll truly set the tone for our wedding and made it a fun night for everyone. I have never seen a band get so many people out on the dance floor. Even family members that I have never seen dance were out on the dance floor having fun. As we went around to greet guests at the table we found that many of them were empty because everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. Kurt and BVT are true professionals and were great through the entire process. Every compliment we received regarding the wedding included a comment about how great Jellyroll was. Thanks to Kurt and the rest of Jellyroll!

We used the band Bounce and they were absolutely phenomenal! All of our guests had a great time and kept raving about how well they performed. They even learned a NSync song since II love them and pulled it off perfectly. Could not have wished for a better band to help us party the night away! Rudy, their leader, was great with keeping in touch with me throughout the whole planning process and answered any questions/concerns I had. A++++++ and highly recommend them!

All about Me Band -- best wedding band! Bill McCue was fantastic to work with and introduced us to All about Me.
Rachel was just the best to work with as we got closer to the wedding..she helped with the timeline and flow of the reception(answering any question we had)..AND she worked with my fiance and his mom as they prepared a secret mother/son dance. The entire band is very personable and very professional.
Our families are filled with people who love to stay on the dance floor and All about Me KEPT them there all night...everyone was raving about the music choices(great mix of old and new) and the energy of the band...would HIGHLY recommend to anyone who wants their guests to have a fabulous time.

I cannot say enough about this band- they MADE our wedding! My husband, Ryan and I, along with our parents researched several bands around our area to play our wedding that took place this past August. We came across Strangers and went to see them at a showcase. Both sets of parents came with us and after the band played their set, our decision was unanimous- they were booked the next day!

A couple months before our wedding, the band leader Denny reached out to us to meet in person and go over all of our music details for the wedding. Denny along with Rick, the band's musical director met us in our town to review our expectations and to answer any questions we may have. They also took the time to get to know Ryan and I which was a very special touch-by the end of the meeting we were old friends! When it came to our big day it was so nice to see their familiar faces in the midst of all the commotion that comes with a wedding.

Our main concern was ensuring that all of our guests would have a great time- well Strangers took care of that! I have been to several weddings where the band would take several breaks in between playing short sets, Strangers played nonstop to keep our party going and keep the dance floor crowded (I mean it, after dinner, they did not break once). Everyone that came our wedding raved about Strangers! They do a wonderful job with selecting songs that will satisfy everyone's musical taste. We are still hearing about them from friends and family! Many of our guests have been to many nice weddings, so to hear our band was the best they have ever seen was awesome. Ryan and I could not have been happier with our decision to have Strangers play our wedding.

Strangers truly set the tone for our wedding and made it a great experience for everyone, I would recommend them to play at any event.

Jellyroll is seriously the best wedding band ever. They recently played at my wedding and we had a such a blast because of the amazing music! Everyone was on the dance floor, even people who do not usually dance. All our guests told us it was the most fun wedding they had ever been to and we have to thank Jellyroll for that! Kurt is fantastic to work with and really made sure that he had all the details down and understood exactly what we wanted. They even learned a few songs that we really liked so that they could be played at the wedding. We cannot say enough good things about them and we can't wait to see them at future events! We will recommend them to everyone we know!

From our first contact at the band showcase through the wedding day, BVT was great to work with. Our consultant, Billy Handy was wonderful and he found the perfect band for our son's wedding. City Rhythm was amazing and they kept everyone out on the dance floor the whole evening! We received so many compliments about the music. If you want to be able to relax at your event and know that your music entertainment will be in good hands, I highly recommend BVT.

We had the pleasure of having Midnight Hour perform for our wedding on May 31, and we couldn't have been happier. They are incredible! Shavin and the rest of the band went out of their way to learn several pretty obscure songs for us, including our first dance song, and they nailed every single one of them. Since the reception, everyone we talked to has told us how much fun they had dancing all night and how great the music was. The dance floor was absolutely packed from start to finish! I can't recommend Midnight Hour enough, by far the best wedding band we've ever heard!

The band provided a memorable performance at the wedding - resulting in MANY compliments from our attendees. They were very proactive in understanding and meeting our requirements. Kurt - the band leader came to our house and met with us for 2 hours to capture our requirements. We wanted some Polkas and they played a medley - which was enjoyed by all. The most endearing activity was giving the microphones to the 2 flower girls (5 and 6 years old) and playing music from Frozen - to which the girls sang. I heartily recommend Back2Life as a band that becomes part of the wedding.

Back2Life was quite simply the BEST WEDDING BAND EVER! Kurt, Marci, and the team were great to work with (for me and for the coordinator at my venue), they had everyone out on the dance floor, and sounded phenomenal. Their play list is vast and diverse, and they're willing to learn extra songs if you have special requests. We had they keyboardist play during the ceremony, keyboard and sax during cocktails, and the full 8-piece band during the reception.

I'm honestly hoping to see them playing other venues in the area so we can go see them perform again! They're amazing!!

We had Contagious perform at our wedding and we absolutely LOVED them - we actually stole them after our best friend's used them for their wedding. They were so great we had to have them and we don't regret copying at all! They really work the crowd getting everyone out on the dance floor and making sure everyone is having fun. They pull people on the stage; they welcome guest singers/dancers; players and they're so great at what they do that you can't help but dance. Working with band leader, Doc, is great because he makes sure he knows absolutely everything you want for the day. They're the best!

Booking Jellyroll was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding! Kurt (the band leader and president of BVTLive!) is extremely professional, responsive, and easy to work with.

Big Ric, his band and BVT were the best!! They were professional, knowledgeable, available and a pleasure to work with. The music was fabulous! Our guests did not want to leave the dance floor. Big Ric has a knack for reading the crowd. It was a wonderful night! We look forward to working with together again.

All About Me was fantastic! All of our guests raved about the band and we were truly impressed with the quality and energy of the music for our wedding. They were incredibly easy to work with and responded quickly to all of our requests. They did a phenomenal job learning our first dance song as well as a few other last minute special requests. We would definitely book them again and highly recommend them to all of our friends!

Kurt, the band leader of Back2Life, talked with the manager of the banquet center in advance of our reception to coordinate the activities of the reception. It was our party and we were able to enjoy our guests and have fun! Two pieces of the band played background music during the cocktail hour. When the guests were moved to the ball room for dinner, the full band was playing. They gave the life to the party! We entered and Back2Life played our requested song "The Prayer" for our first dance. The Groom is Italian as were some of our guests. Kurt and Marci did an outstanding job with this song. At its conclusion, the entire room stood and applauded the band! Our Italian friends commented on the singers' excellent command of the language. The guests were impressed with the quality of the singing and the music for all of the selections. The dance floor was never empty. Throughout the evening, guests asked "Who is the band?" Since then, some have told me that they went to the band's web site to check it out further. Many took pictures of the band throughout the evening!

The technical setup and support was so good that people were able to have conversations while the band was playing. No shouting necessary. Kurt was very responsive to the song list that we selected prior to the wedding. His attention to detail and experience made for a smooth and fun day for us and for our guests. He knows what works to get a crowd on the floor and to have fun. Some commented that the band sounded just as good or better than the original artists. The energy and enthusiasm of all of the band members was contagious! Our reception lasted 5 hours and almost all of the guests stayed until the end--on the dance floor!

We highly recommend Back2Life!

Jellyroll provided an amazing experience at my wedding that got everybody off there feet and danced the night away. People that I run into still talk about my wedding which was over 4 months ago and cannot express how AWESOME Jellyroll was at the Hotel duPont. Kurt and his team did an amazing job providing great entertainment and was flexible with a lot of our requests to give my wife and I our ideal wedding. If you are stuck between a DJ and a live band, go with the live band. If you do not know which band to pick, pick Jellyroll! It will be a fantastic decision that you will never regret. Thanks again to the BVT Team and the member of Jellyroll for making our day that much more special.

Back2Life: If you’re looking for an upbeat, energetic, crowd-friendly band for your event or wedding—look no further cause you want this band! No. Seriously—this band is awesome. Disclaimer—I was very skeptical of all wedding bands. I was not a crazy bride, per se, but I was very particular about what I was looking for with regards to music. I explained to Kurt (band rep) what I wanted and what I definitely did not want and they created a perfect set list that kept the dance floor and atmosphere booming all night long! Back2Life was the perfect band for us and made the night incredibly memorable. My wedding was 2 weeks ago and people are still telling me how super-great the band was and how lucky I was to find such a gem in the sea of wedding bands! I should also note that the Back2Life learned not one but two songs just for us! (ACDC’s Thunderstruck for the bridal party entrance & Sam Cooke’s Wonderful World for the father daughter dance). I really can’t say enough great things about them. They were super laidback and easy to work with and honestly enthusiastic to be a part of our big night. For anyone looking for a special event or wedding band (without the cheese and with loads of talent)…this is the band for you. I should also note that they came all the way from Philly to play our wedding in DC for a very affordable (and worth every penny) cost!!

Back2Life provided the music for my daughter's wedding reception on October 26, 2013 in Philadelphia. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with this band and with Brandywine Valley Talent. As Elizabeth and Jeff and I get feedback from our guests, overwhelmingly everyone has commented on how much they loved the band. The dance floor was packed from 6:00 PM until the last dance at 11:00 PM. Our guests ranged in age from 19 to 83 and everyone was dancing. The variety and quality of the music was fabulous. When Marci sang, "You Say it Best When You Say Nothing at All" for the first dance, there was not a dry eye in the room. Our youngest daughter is getting married in Charleston, SC, in April, and the family requested that we bring Back2Life to that wedding. I think that says it all. This is a wonderfully talented group of musicians and vocalists, and you will not find a better band in the Philadelphia area. Vickie Powell

Knowing that music makes an event memorable, we picked Back2Life for our wedding. All we can say is WOW!!, they exceeded our expectations. I met with Kurt Manderbach and Marci and they listened to what we wanted and created perfect sets and even learned some special songs for us. They were professional, energetic, have unreal harmony and just so great with the guests. I can not tell you how many people asked for the band's name and just went on and on about how much they enjoyed not only listening and dancing ( dance floor was always filled) but watching them perform.

When it is Christmas, exactly two months after your wedding, and your family and friends are still talking about how wonderful your wedding was and how amazing the band was---you know that you nailed it!!!!

I have already recommended Back2Life and would certainly call on them again to guarantee a fun and successful event.

Thanks so much for making our wedding so memorable for us and our guests!

We had Jellyroll for our wedding on 10/19/13, if I could give them 15 stars out of 5 I would!! To say that they are incredible is an understatement! They were BEYOND our expectations and we haven't stopped getting phone calls about it yet :) "best wedding weve ever been to!" seems to be the theme! We truly had BLAST at our wedding and my husband can not get over that he actually sang at our wedding, haha! It was such a great suprise! Also, I can not express how grateful I am to Kurt and especially to Dave for being flexible in playing an original piece written by my brother for the ceremony, despite the extremely unusual request, it was so special to me, and will forever be a wonderful memory of our marriage ceremony. I can't thank you enough!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for helping us to truly enjoy every second of what turned out to be the best night of our lives!!!!

I've known Pete Spina and the City Rhythm Orchestra for many years and I would have chosen no other band for our wedding reception. They provided beautiful classical music for our outdoor ceremony; sophisticated jazz for the cocktail hour; and an astute blend of dance music throughout the evening. Being a lifelong disciple of Frank Sinatra, I knew we were in for a great experience when the band kicked into "Small Hotel" for the first song of the night -- one of my favorites but not a specific request. No matter.

A great band need a great bandleader who knows how to call tunes and accommodate the client, and Pete was first-class from start to finish. We had a very personalized feel in mind for the evening and our guests were thrilled because Pete knew how to read the crowd and hit the mark. To say I'd recommend the band would be a vast understatement. My thanks to Pete and CRO for a truly wonderful evening.

For us, the music was the most important part of our reception. Let me tell you, Kurt and his band Jellyroll did not diappoint at all!! I was blown away by how absolutely incredible they were on our September 21st wedding at the Bellevue. They were by far the best band I have ever heard, and I have been to a lot of weddings. The party did not stop all night, and the very large dance floor was completely packed constantly. I have heard from so many of my guest about how amazing the band was. The song choices were unbelievable, and the band was so fun!! I thought it was great that they invited Kevin and I up on the stage to sing and dance. It was so nice of them to let us join in on the entertainment!! They were so much fun, we begged them to stay for an extra half hour because no one wanted the party to stop. Thankfully they agreed and the party went on!! I LOVED them so so much and am so thankful they were able to perform for us! I seriously don't know how they have not recorded their own record yet. SO UNBELIEVABLE!!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!

For us, the music was the most important part of our reception. Let me tell you, Kurt and his band Jellyroll did not diappoint at all!! I was blown away by how absolutely incredible they were on our September 21st wedding at the Bellevue. They were by far the best band I have ever heard, and I have been to a lot of weddings.

We used Jellyroll for our daughter and new son-in-law's recent wedding, and they were fantastic. People were dancing the entire time, with broad smiles on their faces, and every time I looked around the room, all the seats were empty, which is what we were hoping for. They were very easy and pleasant to work with, did a great job on our special requests, and made a special day even more special with their high energy, pleasantness, and just great playing. We would highly recommend Jellyroll, and BVT Talent, to anyone who would love to have a fantastic reception, and we were very grateful they did ours.

We had Contagious play at our wedding at the Curtis Center last month and they were wonderful! Doc was a pleasure to work with, super professional and helpful, leading up to the wedding. Everyone was up dancing the whole night at the reception. The majority of the complements from guests had to do with our choice of a band. Worth every penny!

Jellyroll was fantastic. From the moment they started playing, people were up and dancing, until the very end of the wedding. They took us through all of the rituals (introductions, first dance, father/daughter dance, etc.) with ease and made the evening flow beautifully. They worked with my daughter and son-in-law on music selection and were willing to learn any songs they wanted, and added in great selections where appropriate.
I would highly recommend BVT and Jellyrool

We received a recommendation for Brandywine Valley Talent, and more specificially for the band 'All About Me'. We were fortunate to be able to visit a showcase at Xfinity Live in Philadelphia in summer 2012 right after we got engaged when we were in the process of choosing a band to perform at our wedding. That day we were able to listen to 3 separate bands part of BVT and All About Me being one of them. We just absolutely fell in love with them and knowing that our wedding was the following summer we knew we had to book them up quick so we did.

Throughout the entire process, we found it very easy to work with the band, their website was very easy to navigate and choose our song list online and save it and edit it at any time. We also had the pleasure of having a conference call with the band manager Rachael about 2 weeks prior to the wedding where we basically went through the entire timeline of events for our wedding day. She was so pleasant and helpful to work with and really put our mind at ease (once again) that we chose the right band to perform at our wedding. She helped us with our questions and provided recommendations but mainly just left all decisions up to us which was nice to know and nice to feel that we were in control of the song list, the timeline of events throughout our day to make it the best day ever.

Finally we are still receiving comments from ALL of our guests telling us how much fun the wedding was and I truly think that had so much to do with the band - All About Me. From the second that we were introduced at the reception the band had the guests attention and really got everyone involved, up dancing, and just having a great night. We will recommend this band to ANYONE else we know getting married. Thanks again to the entire band!!!

My guests and I were on the dance floor most of the night. My guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and I strongly believe the band was a big part of that.

The guests at our wedding have not stopped complimenting the Back2Life as "the best wedding band ever." Almost a month since the wedding and we still keep hearing how great the band was. The dance floor was packed all night as a true testament to their quality. From the perspective of the bride and groom, working with Back2Life was great. Their library of songs is expansive of every genre and creating a set list online is very straight forward. We could not have been happier with our decision to use Back2Life for our wedding.

I cannot rave enough about Back2Life. Our wedding guests (my friends in their 20's to my parent's friends in their 60's) are still talking about how great they were, six weeks after our wedding. They did a perfect job with building the momentum of the party from start to finish (with emceeing and with the set list) and their musicianship is amazing. They provided ceremony music as well, which was lovely. And, they nailed our first dance song. It was nice and easy to work with BVTLive! with scheduling and finding the right band.

All About Me from BVT played at my wedding on May 18th...and they were fantastic. They played great songs (a mix of top 40's, party favorites/classics, Motown, and a couple of Italian songs that we requested) and had an incredible amount of energy and enthusiasm the entire night. The brass section led all of the guests around the room during Love Train, the singers came out onto the dance floor, and they ended the night with a high-energy, crowd-pleasing, and hilarious rendition of Shout. Our friends and family were dancing the whole time...when my husband and I look at the pictures, we keep saying, "Look how much everyone was having on the dance floor!" Aside from the dance party, they played really nice dinner music, mother/son and father/daughter dances, and LOVELY sax/keyboard music on the patio during the cocktail hour...I just loved what this live music added to the outdoor cocktail hour. If you are thinking of having a band at your wedding, choose All About Me!

Back2Life has a repertoire that could suit any party. Prior to our wedding, the band leaders could not have been more gracious in working with us to assure us that they would accomodate our style and guests. They were "spot on" and their awesome energy and music was simply fantastic. People danced before, during dinner and all night long!

They were great and EVERY guest that we have spoken to since the wedding commented on how good the band was, and how wonderful the quartet was during cocktails.They were all so professional and were very accessible to answer questions and work with before the wedding. They honored every request and worked with us to give us exactly what we wanted. The dance floor was packed the entire evening and people were left standing at the end, crying for more !!! If you want to have top quality,professional,live music at your affair "Jellyroll" is the band for you. Good luck in all of your planning . We have another daughter and already plan to have "Jellyroll" provide the music for us !!

We used them for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Kurt very easy to work with and also learned a handful of songs we wanted. He always got back to us quickly and listened to everything we wanted. They were helpful with the timeline of the night at well. Everyone in JELLYROLL is super talented and so nice. No questions asked - they are the band to use!

Thank you does not even begin to do Jellyroll justice for going above and beyond in every aspect of my wedding. It was truly a night that my husband and I (and all of our guests) will never forget. About 2/3 of our wedding guests were from out of town and they could not stop complimenting us on Jellyroll throughout the night.

From the wonderful dinner music, to getting everyone on the dance floor for 2+ hours, it was incredible.

Jellyroll worked with me on making my father-daughter dance extra special. My father is disabled and they made sure that the song was shortened to the perfect length, so that he could stand and sway with me for the song. There was not a dry eye in the house. They were amazing professionals and easy to work with from day one. As many others will say, if you want to have the best reception hire Jellyroll.

To all brides and grooms- do yourself and your wedding a favor...book JELLYROLL! You will be so, so glad that you did.
They were incredible! We don't live in the area, so we had seen videos online and spoken to other people, but never saw them live before our wedding night. We were pretty confident they'd be great, but understandably a little nervous. I am happy to report that we were blown away. They were amazing!!
The singers' voices were outstanding. They were by far the best we've heard at any event we've been to and even better than in the videos we saw of them online. The band is so professional. They really know how to work the room and build up momentum as the party goes on. The dance floor was crowded the whole night and everyone had such a good time. We had picked a mix of current and older songs using the song selector, and they incorporated a lot of them very smoothly. I usually think it sounds cheesy when wedding bands do current songs because it is never as good as the original, but Jellyroll was able to pull them off very convincingly and sounded amazing.
We couldn't have been happier with their performance. People have been raving about them for weeks now. A huge thank you to Jellyroll for making our wedding such a blast!

“THAT WAS THE BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!!!” We’ve gotten pretty used to hearing that from everyone who attended our wedding. And it is exactly what we were looking for when it came to the most important part of our reception - the music. From the cocktail hour to the final song, the Strangers provided an atmosphere that made our night truly something to remember!

We had such a wonderful experience with these guys, and gals, during our wedding. The entire process from beginning to end was professional and laid back, all at the same time. We built such a wonderful rapport with Denny and felt so comfortable! When they gave us a huge selection of music to choose from, we had no idea what we would do, but somehow narrowed it down to 80 songs. Then after a casual final meeting, we gave our absolute favorites and left the rest up to them. That was the best decision we could have made! They used our suggestions and created the perfect playlist to get our guests moving, shaking and dancing way past the last song. The icing on the cake was running into them at the bar afterwards and feeling like they were part of our group!

You truly cannot find a better band to make your day unforgettable.

This is the first time I ever took the time to write a review for anything! I had such a great experience from beginning to end working with Midnight Hour that I just had to share it with others who are searching for a band.
Look no further, Midnight Hour will ensure that your guests have a great time at your event and you will definitely have a packed dance floor! I had the privilege of having Midnight Hour play at my wedding this past September. During our first dance as husband and wife I had to keep glancing at the band to make sure they were really singing and it wasn’t a recording because they sounded that good! It was incredible and one of the best moments of our wedding day.
Shavin is so professional and organized. He had a timeline created for the entire reception so that we utilized every minute! A wedding goes by so fast so you want to make sure you enjoy it and aren’t stressing about what comes next. Midnight hour orchestrated the night so well and made sure everyone was on the dance floor and having a great time! They won’t get “too” involved which I was worried about, they know it’s about you and your guests and they will see what music the crowd is responding to and will cater to them.
I have people tell me that our wedding was the best wedding they ever attended. I even had people say they weren’t a fan of having a band at a wedding until they heard Midnight Hour at our wedding. You can see that each member of the band is passionate about what they do and they put the effort into making your event special. Joanne the female signer is so talented as well, it seems like she can sing just about anything, she is awesome! They really don’t even compare to other bands out there. If you are searching for a band for your wedding or event, choose Midnight hour, you will not be disappointed! I can honestly say choosing Midnight Hour was the best decision we made for our wedding!

My husband and I had Big Ric Rising from BVT bands perform at our wedding last month and they were AMAZING!!!! I honestly can not say enough about how great they were!!! The band leader Big Ric, was extremely professional and helpful from day one and worked his hardest to make sure that the day was perfect for us! Music was one of our biggest concerns and I truly believe that our wedding would not have been the same if it was not for Big Ric Rising. From the minute they announced the bridal party, our 300 guests did not get off the dance floor the whole night, and most importantly neither did my husband and I. Each and every member of Big Ric sounded so amazing, and every song was memorable. By the end of the night they seemed like family!! We've had many guests call to ask for their information to hire Big Ric for future events. Everyone should check out Big Ric Rising, you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to have another party to plan and have them come back and play for us!

We had CONTAGIOUS at our daughter's wedding in Church Creek MD last Saturday. Our Son in Law's Mom and Dad hired them. They were without question... THE BEST BAND we have ever experienced at a wedding reception! Not just us.... EVERYONE WAS SAYING IT!! The dance floor was filled to capacity the entire night! They read our crowd and kept them going...and going.... and going!! Their sound is awesome!! Their friendly, approachable manner was perfect for our fun loving crowd. They knew what to play next each and every moment. They never ever lost the mood!! They had fun with our guests and our guests LOVED it! I am hearing from many of them...."Best band ever"!!! In my opinion...if you want non stop dancing at your affair?? You cannot go wrong with Doc and the fabulous members of CONTAGIOUS!

Many thanks to the "Strangers" for providing us with a fabulous wedding! The music was incredible and they managed to keep everyone dancing all night long. Our guests had a blast and I continued to receive compliments all night long on how great the band was! We left the music up to them and they knew exactly what to play for our diverse crowd to keep them on the dance floor and havig fun! They played great music during the cocktail music and during the dining time and then made it obvious that it was time to party! My guests are still calling me and commenting on how much fun the wedding was an how great this band was! And many thanks to Denny...he interacted with the crowd to make it a really fun night. They are extremely talented...we saw them perform several times before the wedding and will continue to follow them - when they perform it is always a great time. Many thanks to this talened band for making our wedding night so successful. When the wedding ended all of our guests were still dancing...no one left early which is a testament to how great the band was!

I hired The Strangers for my wedding and it was probably the best part of the night!!! The were amazing, I wish I could give them 10 stars. Denny is so easy to work with and fun!! They did everything I asked and had some great ideas. They had everyone dancing from the few kids to grandmothers. My guests wanted to know where I got them from and a newly engaged couple even asked if I minded if they looked into them. I sincerely hope they do, anywhere The Strangers go, fun is guaranteed. Do yourself a favor and hire them!

WOW! Back2Life...are Energetic, Spectacular, and Fantastic instrumentalists! Their music touched our guests from the first beat. Guests were on the dance floor from one song to the next. If you're looking for talent to rock your night away...you need to have Back2Life perform for you. Top songs from the 70,80,90s to current ones that lift spirits. Our wedding was a military wedding representing all branches of the service and they out performed our expectations. Don't look anymore...they are what you want and need. We are definately hiring them again...and we can't wait! They truly bring soldiers Back2Life from the stresses of deployment.

Jellyroll was a huge hit at our wedding reception. Everyone was up dancing the whole evening and had a great time. So many guests told us that they were the best band they have ever heard play at a wedding. We also enjoyed working with Kurt during the planning process. He was such a joy to work with and was always so kind to us. We knew from the beginning that we were so lucky to have Jellyroll perform at our wedding.

Jellyroll was fantastic and exceeded all of our expectations. They were easy to work with and made our wedding so special. Our guests are still talking about how great the band was and it's been over a month since our wedding. My husband and I prioritized the band as one of the most important aspects for our wedding and checked out loads of bands. Once we were recommended to check out Jellyroll we were sold and looked no further. They played all of the songs we requested and learned 2 songs just for our wedding. If you go with them you won't be disappointed.

Dear Shavin & The Midnight Hour Band,

Katelyn and I can not thank you enough for the EXTRAORDINARY performance that you guys delivered on our wedding night 6/30 @ The Waterworks. We could not have wished for a better sounding, more entertaining or more professional band. EVERYONE loved you guys! I can not tell you how many compliments we got about the band, but to put it modestly, there were too many to count. You guys made the difference in taking our wedding night from good to GREAT.

Our families and friends are critical when it comes to rating bands and their performances, with that being said that you guys get a PERFECT 10! A few of our guests commented that you guys sounded so good and professional that many times throughout the night they thought that the actual recordings of the songs were being played, that is how much you nailed EVERY song! We can not thank you enough for making our wedding night the best and most fun night of our lives. Everyone danced ALL night long and EVERYONE couldn't get enough of The Midnight Hour Band!

Lastly, Shavin was a GREAT band leader to deal with. He accommodated our EVERY request and made our wedding night more special than we ever could have expected.

Thanks again for being such an AWESOME band. We would recommend The Midnight Hour Band to anyone and everyone for any occasion, wedding or otherwise.

Best regards,

Brian & Katelyn Borden

Book this band! From the moment we met them at an expo in King of Prussia, it was obvious that these guys are professionals. Denny and Rick seemed to have every detail covered, and guaranteed a night we would never forget. Not only that, everyone we met in the band was so extremely nice, and they were all excited to talk to us about our upcoming wedding. They certainly delivered, and just as Denny promised, every guest we talked to said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. The music was tight, the song selection was perfect, the sound/volume was well-monitored, and the dancing never stopped. We highly recommend the Strangers to anyone who is looking for a band that will keep you on your feet all night and will have you consider planning another party just to have them play it.

Hands down…the best band in Philadelphia. We attended a wedding with Jellyroll about a year before we got engaged and decided then and there that we HAD to have them. They were our 2nd call (venue was #1) after getting engaged and lucky for us, we just got to experience (and see!) them again in July at a friend's wedding.They can play anything and everything and will learn songs for you, too - they learned our first dance song, for example. I loved how interactive they were with our guests - from serenading family members to jumping up and down with us in the crowd. Besides talented, I also found them extremely easy to work with. Kurt is the main contact and also the trombonist. They helped manage the transitions of our evening schedule and flawlessly pulled off a “surprise” dance with my father. Also, a little thing, but they asked us about our wedding colors and then the men all wore vests to coordinate. A little touch, but really nice.Lastly, despite doing multiple weddings / events a week (I’d guess a minimum of 3), they seem to truly enjoy themselves and are incredibly humble. I wish we could throw another party and have them again.

JellyRoll was simply amazing. They kept the party going all night! If you aren't sure who to choose, don't hesitate to just hire them! We hired them based on recommendations from across the country and were not disappointed that we did. Everyone I worked with at Brandywine and in the band, were so nice and helpful. I could tell that they all wanted to make it an incredible night for us. People are still telling us how amazing the music was and our wedding was a month ago! From the song selections to the flow to their performance, everything was spot on. They exceeded our expectations and everyone was on the dance floor all night! If you are looking for an incredibly talented band and to party all night, don't look elsewhere!

The band knew what to play and when. Guests were on the dance floor the entire time. We have received great comments from numerous guests ranging in age from 35 - 80 on how much they enjoyed the music, and we are still receiving comments over a month later. Back2Life made the reception a party to remember.

Also - the keyboardist, Dave Dettra - did an amazing job playing music for our reception. Great group to work with!

We are thrilled with our choice to book Back2Life for our wedding band. Starting with their set list, Back2Life offers a wide range of music appropriate for all ages, and got all of our guests moving. Once the wedding came closer, we went to dinner with Kurt to go over every last detail, which was a nice added touch. Our wedding was on October 29, 2011, the day of the unexpected snow storm. This made everyone (including us) late for just about everything, but the band was more than willing to work with us in adjusting their play time to accommodate our late start even though they were on time. Many of our guests told us that our event was the best they had ever attended, and attributed this to the band. People still talk about it when they see us! While the price was a bit more than we wanted to spend, it was the best money we spent throughout the entire process, and we wouldn't change a thing. Thank you to Kurt and Back2Life for making our reception an outstanding part of a day we'll never forget.

It was a pleasure to work with Brandywine Valley Talent through the process of planning our wedding. They were always very responsive and friendly. When we began looking into wedding bands, a few people told us to check out a local band called Midnight Hour. We attended one of BVT's showcases in King of Prussia and had such a fun time seeing all of the bands and getting to speak with the bandleader of Midnight Hour, Shavin. That night sealed the deal for us and we booked Midnight Hour immediately! They are such a talented and friendly group of people, and we just knew they'd do a wonderful job for us. We coordinated all of our details and requests with Shavin and he was so professional and fun to work with; we felt completely at ease and were confident he and the band would give us great music. Our venue had a unique setup, as the reception was taking place in multiple rooms, and Shavin worked with our venue to ensure everything was setup perfectly. Midnight Hour played the most beautiful songs on piano/sax for our cocktail hour that everyone was already raving about them and asking where we found them! They did an awesome job of introducing the bridal party to special songs we requested, and Shavin did an amazing job singing 'In My Life' for our first dance. After dinner, the party really got started and it never slowed down!!! We love music and really wanted our band and the dancing to be the focal point of the entire reception....and we definitely got our wish! The band played the best songs, performed everything to perfection, and kept the dancefloor packed the entire night!! Every guest at our wedding declared Midnight Hour the "best wedding band ever", and we agree 100%. Midnight Hour is just an incredible band. They are so much fun, and they know how to keep a party rolling. We had high expectations and they completely blew us away. It has now been 2 weeks since our wedding and everyone is still talking about the band and what a fun party it was. They even surprised me by learning one of my favorite songs. I can't say enough good things about this band. If you want to have a wedding to remember, do yourself a favor and book Midnight Hour immediately! They are simply the best.

Back2Life exceeded my expectations. Before the wedding, any question I had was promptly answered and every request I had was fulfilled. Their performance was high energy and they kept everyone the dance floor packed all night! I couldn't believe how many people danced from the time dinner ended until the reception was completely over. Phenomenal when covering Lady Gaga and Katy Perry while keeping the older crowd happy with some select goodies that are sure to please all. Choosing Back2Life was by far the best decision I made when planning our wedding. I highly recommend them!! - Carly

We received numerous compliments on how great the band sounded “The perfect volume” “Played a wide range of music” “Great Horn Section” “Awesome Singers” Strangers also provided the ceremony & cocktail hour music so you need not look any further for your musical needs.

Jellyroll is absolutely amazing. I first saw them play a few years ago at a friend's wedding and knew it was absolutely essential to hire them for our wedding. They are so good at keeping the crowd on the dance floor laughing, singing, and dancing the whole night!! Our guests are still talking about how great our band was and how much fun they had dancing!! Not only are they extremely talented and entertaining, but they were wonderful to work with. Kurt made sure that anything I wanted was taken care of and gave me complete confidence that there was nothing I'd need to worry about. The band even coordinated everything with my reception venue so that the introductions, special dances, toasts, cake-cutting, etc all went perfectly. I can't say enough good things about Jellyroll...they are THE best!

This band was like having your friends being able to pickup instruments and play any song you wanted to hear. When we were selecting what songs we wanted to have played at the reception this band went all out to play our selections. They brought an energy to the reception that made all of our guests get up and dance. They went above what we ever thought a band would bring to our evening. They played for a 5 hour reception while only taking an half hour break. The only downfall to this band was after they were done everybody was exhausted including my wife....Thank You Back to Life..We owe you a drink..Dan and Janel.

From the moment the announcements started until their final song--a great rendition of "Proud Mary" that brought everyone to the dance floor one last time--Jellyroll was on their game and had the crowd on their feet all night. Kurt, the bandleader, was so easy to work with and attentive throughout the night. So many guests--both young and old--commented on the quality of the music. Jellyroll was worth every penny!

On a final note, the "Party Rock Anthem" was a welcome suprise that had all of our friends dancing!

City Rhythm did a fabulous job at our daughter's July 2011 wedding in New York. Each band member is amazingly talented, and the range and diversity the band is capable of cannot be beat. Pete was fantastic to work with, totally accommodating, and he even was able to find the school songs for both Yale and Dartmouth, and the entire band played the songs as all the kids' college friends came onto the dance floor for special photos. Anything we asked (like the couple's first dance and the father/daughter and mother/son dances...etc) was handled with style and was well-prepared. Every song the kids requested was played and sang in a great way. Pete was terrific at keeping things moving along in an easygoing but timely manner! The wedding ceremony musicians added a beautiful serenity and grace to the proceedings, and the cocktail hour trio provided a lively atmosphere for our amazing event overlooking the NYC skyline as the sun set. City Rhythm truly reflected the rhythm of our city (even though they came up from Philadelphia)! and helped contribute to making our daughter's wedding one of the happiest weddings anyone there had ever attended (I'm not just saying that - that's what people told me afterwards)! I would recommend this excellent, professional and superb band to anyone who wants to throw a fun and truly memorable event!

We just loved our band. We had more comments from our guests how great they were. It was obvious to those who attended since the dance floor was full most of the time. A band can make or break a reception. This group made ours a huge success! Thanks!!!

Wow! Contagious is an amazing band! All of our friends and family are still talking about how wonderful the band was. From the very first song, until the very last, our dance floor was full of people. Doc had an amazing way of getting our guests up and dancing. They were extremely easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this band for anyone looking to have a great, fun-filled party.

Brandywine Valley Talent has a number of entertainment options to choose from. We had Contagious play at our wedding and hands down they are one of the best party bands in the area. The dancefloor was NEVER empty as they play a wide range of great music that everyone loves!!
"Doc" the band leader is the best to work - he is SO much fun and high energy! The band learned a number of specific requests for us including our intro song, first dane song, bride and father dance song and groom and mother dance song.
People are still talking about how awesome they were!

They learned 3 songs for us, which we are so grateful for. Throughout the receptions, guests were asking us the band's name and wanting to know where they could see them again. If you want to dance all night to the music of wonderful singers and musicians, this band is for you!

We had a blast with Jellyroll!

Our first interactions with Kurt were great - very responsive and professional. We felt comfortable with him from the start.

They have a great worksheet for you to complete before the wedding with all requests, names and timing.

They were flexible at the wedding - and even surprised us both with a special song, not on their usual playlists.

And of course, the music, the band, the singers were all phenomenal. We have awesome pictures of the lead singers serenading the guests, dancing with bridesmaids, and me on stage with the tambourine!

We hired Brandywine Valley Talent's "Midnight Hour" to play at our reception. I was amazed by the variety of music they played. All of our guests, regardless of age, complimented their selections. They kept people on the dancefloor consistently through the evening, and were open to surprises... oddly enough, they even ad libbed music for a swordfight staged on the dance floor! Pepper and all the staff at BVT were helpful and professional, and I know a number of our guests asked for their information for future events. Highly recommended.

Midnight Hour played at our wedding at Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ, and they were AMAZING! We had a wonderful time and we've received so many compliments about our band. From the planning phase to our wedding day, Midnight Hour was such a pleasure to work with, and they were very flexible and willing to learn new songs for us. It is very rare to attend a wedding where everyone, from all age groups, is on the dance floor from beginning to end, and our wedding was the exception - everyone was dancing all night! We were laughing at some of our crazy song requests, and we were in awe when Midnight Hour performed each song to perfection. In addition to their incredible talent, they were so professional and kept our reception right on schedule, from the introduction of the bridal party to prompting us when it was time for the speeches and cake cutting. Do not hesitate to book Midnight Hour - they were wonderful!

We used The Midnight Hour for our rehearsal and they were absolutely amazing!! Everyone at the reception raved about them. We knew they were the best after they played at our two brothers' weddings a few years prior. They were very easy to work with. Our wedding "splurge" was getting a band because we knew this particular band would literally make our reception amazingly fun. They had everyone on the dance floor and even learned three songs for us (and one of the was a Neil Young song and people though it was a CD - they're that good!) We would recommend them to everyone!

Back 2 Life was definitely the highlight of our reception. We had guests telling us they had more fun at our wedding than their own, due mostly in part to the fantastic band. Leading up to the wedding, Brandywine Valley Talent and Kurt from Back 2 Life were easy to work with and extremely helpful. They asked for a lot of our input before preparing the set list and were also willing to learn quite a few new songs for us for our first dance, parent dances, etc. - they rocked all of them. They were fun, entertaining and amazingly talented. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

I was fortunate to get a sneak peek of City Rhythm at my brother's wedding 6 years ago, so I knew they would be fantastic. Many people have told us that our wedding was the most fun they had ever been to because the band was so awesome. And they are classy - they will be very respectful of your "do not play" list and they keep the crowd in mind when choosing their songs.

Also, before your wedding you can go through a huge list of songs and rate them 1-5 stars. This is a good way to get thinking about exactly what type of music you would like. I couldn't be happier with City Rhythm.

They were the best band! From the moment we were announced into the reception, everyone was on their feet. They engaged the entire crowd for the whole night. They listended to all of our requests from the very beginning and did not play anything at all that we had on our "do not play list." My husband and I were on stage singing and dancing with them at one point and they were having as much fun with us as we were with them. They have very strong musical talents too. All the songs we asked them to learn were such a hit, that they are putting them in their line-up now!

Strangers was our band for our November 13, 2010 wedding at the Montrose Mansion (Villanova Conference Center). Denny was so reponsive to my questions and requests and was awesome to work with. The band was absolutely fabulous and made our wedding reception more fun than we ever imagined. Our guests are still raving about how awesome the band was and people want to know how we found you. I will definitely recommend Strangers and Brandywine Valley Talent to other brides We had so much fun dancing and we didn't want the night to end. I have never seen a dance floor so packed at a wedding. Everyone was up dancing the entire time.

Denny and the Strangers band learned the songs we requested especially our First Dance Song "You Are the Best Thing" and the Father/Daughter Dance Song "King of the World". They both sounded AMAZING!!!! We also loved our reception introduction..."Rock this Town". The band definitely "rocked the evening". They made our reception so fun and memorable. The band knew I was a singer so they allowed to sing the last song with the band. The Amanda and Amanda duo for "Livin on a Prayer" was excellent. The definitely fulfilled my secret dream of singing with a band. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!

This review is for Dave (piano) and Joe (saxaphone), who performed at our cocktail hour. (I did a separate review for Jellyroll, with a different e-mail address, which unfortunately doesn't come up on my vendor list).
BVT offers reception bands and musicians for the cocktail hour, ceremonies, etc., including our bridal shower - basically all your entrtainment needs. Some of our guests complimented us on having live music, during the cocktail hour. One said that they stayed on the side of the room, where they were located, just to hear them. Dave and Joe are part of the 12-piece band - Jellyroll, who performed during the reception. People are still talking about them and said the music was of the highlights of the evening. Dave also works in the BVT office and was readily available to answer questions, calm the planning anxiety of the MOTB, etc.
We're looking forward to booking through BVT for our next family wedding.

I used Jellyroll for my wedding reception band. They were amazing to both work with and listen to the night of.
They kept the pace of the night moving and had lots of people up and dancing the night away.
They are a bit pricey, but as a 12 piece band you definitely get a bang for your buck. After listening to a video of them play on YouTube then listening to smaller bands there was no comparison.
This band is definitely worth considering!

Big Ric and his group were, in a word, stellar. My wife and I expected music and a little help announcing when people should sit, who should dance when, etc. What we got was a true entertainer and leader in Ric with a group of professional and tremendously talented musicians backing him up.

With a group of 150 people, it is all too common that many of them get bored, get antsy, and end up leaving. The band was playing almost throughout the entire ceremony, and there were precious few moments when there was no one on the dance floor enjoying the music. Very few people left before 10:00pm, including the more aged among us who usually get to sleep before 9:00. I was astonished!

Big Ric was thorough in his preparation, making sure he had the order of events, the pronunciation of names, and all the other details of the evening exactly how my wife and I wanted them, and that took a tremendous amount of pressure off of us to make sure people were in the right places at the right time.

All of the comments we got after the wedding were, "Oh my goodness, that was incredible!" or, "mate, that whole night was brilliant!" While our planning had something to do with that, Big Ric and his group were the ones that made the whole thing happen. I've already convinced my sister to request Big Ric Rising for her own wedding, which will be in the near future, and she loved the idea. Anyone who asks me for a band or emcee for their wedding is only getting one suggestion from me: "Check out Big Ric Rising, from Brandywine Valley Talent."

Dave at Brandywine was a pleasure to work with. With his help we selected a DJ/Live mix which included a 3 piece jazz band to play during the ceremony and reception cocktail hour/dinner with a DJ to play during the party section of the evening. Tony from the band was easy to work with and even learned some new songs for our ceremony. DJ Bob was very professional and worked with our music preferences and was set up very early. He was classy and gave a wedding worthy performance not like a bat mitzvah (thought I am sure he could change his performance for an event like that). Overall we had a great time with the group and would contact then again in the future for our music needs.
Many Thanks!

Big Ric was fantastic at our wedding and I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Everyone was dancing the entire time - not one person I spoke with even sat down for dessert because they were having such a great time. Big Ric has an amazing voice and after the wedding everyone was commenting on how energetic he was and how they were the best band they had ever seen at a wedding. Thank you Big Ric for an unforgettable evening!!

Contagious Dance Band put an exclamation point on our already wonderful wedding. They are by far the best wedding band I've ever seen, I consider myself so lucky to have had them play at our wedding. I've received so many complements on the band. The most common text/email I've gotten reads: "Best. Wedding Band. EVER" - I couldn't agree more. It was nothing short of superb. Thanks again!

The Midnight Hour MADE our reception. All of our guests said they were the best band they had ever heard. They had great instincts as to what to play when. People were dancing the entire reception -- to the point where we could only great our guests on the dance floor.

The band was fabulous. My only disappointment was the father/daughter song. While BVT claims their bands will do any song request, it was clear that the singer was not interested in the song I selected. I was very upset during the song - especially when my father said "What song is this supposed to be?" Very embarrassing.

But the songs on their list... Jellyroll has down cold! They are great!

City Rhythm did a GREAT job for us! Very professional - we didn't have to worry about a thing. Everyone at the wedding thought they were great - and had a very wide range of music to perform! Would highly recommend them.

We chose Group Therapy to play at our wedding without seeing them in person. Yes it was very optimistic of us, but it worked out! They learned 2 songs for us and those were great. The bandleader was pretty responsive, took me a while to hear back from him, but he followed through. We received so many compliments of the band at our wedding. Guests thought it was the best wedding ever, the best music ever, etc. They played a great mix of songs. Honestly, I've never seen people dance between courses at dinner. Everything was wonderful.

The only areas to improve are the fact that I was supposed to throw the bouquet and that never happened. I also requested songs to be played during their break and they did not have them. So I (yes the bride) ran got my iPod to play a few "rap" songs.

BVTLive! were helpful with finding us a band that fit our needs and budget and were pleasant to deal with. However, once we found our awesome band - Strangers! - through BVTlive, we didn't deal much with them directly. I would recommend going through BVTLive to others.

Big Ric Rising was the greatest wedding band ever! Hire them!

They would grace any stage and could back up the greatest singers alive; and Big Ric Miinter is a wonderful guy who went out of his way to make the day special! They made our event. People are still talking about them.

As to BVT, they are not exactly the most organized or efficient organization ever. There were way more snags along the way then there should have been, but all's well that ends well, I suppose.

I heard Midnight Hour perform years ago and asked for their card at the event. When my daughter got engaged (five years later) I told her she must hear them perform. Guess who performed at her wedding? Of course.....Midnight Hour. Shavin and his band are amazing. They understand the audience and get the party up and on their feet. They are easy and fun to work with. Our family can't say enough good things about them and they were certainly an important part of our daughters wedding. Thanks Midnight Hour!
