I agree with every review written on this site. TVK Orchestra is the one thing you need to complete the most unbelievable wedding reception you will ever have. Where do I start...

1) Professional - Tom took the time to drive to Milwaukee to meet with us IN PERSON for 30 minutes, during rush hour! Who does that?! He made it his goal from day 1 to make this event as much about us and as amazing for us as possible. He coordinated with the other vendors to ensure his time line matched theirs. He took the time to get to know every aspect of our wedding. Top notch.

2) Flexible - Throughout the entire wedding reception the band was always receptive to everything that was happening. Whether that was when to announce different events throughout the night, letting our family members play the drums during "Superstition" or sing "Satisfaction," or letting us hand out glow in the dark tambourines during the dance party, they were accommodating at every venture.

3) Musicians - This band sounds amazing. They will not only learn just about any song that you ask them too, but they'll play it like you've never heard it. They learned "That Girl" by Justin Timberlake for our first dance. They played these amazing medleys of songs during our dance party.

Bottom line is, they have it all. You will not be disappointed. I can't tell you how many people have told me since the wedding that our wedding was one of the best they have ever been to (including one person who found it more fun than his own... haha). I would highly recommend them, and I would hire them again in a heart beat.

The only thing you really need to know about TVK is that I (in my very fluffy bridal gown) was dancing for 4 hours straight!
TVK was excellent. Tom not only took our requests to heart but also checked in with me and my husband throughout the night to elicit feedback. So professional and accommodating. The band was excellent. The vocals were outstanding. It was everything I hoped for. The playbook is expansive and they will learn songs if they are important to you (even if they are not listed). Very reasonable as well for traveling up to Door County to play! 10/10 would recommend again.

We knew TVK Orchestra had exactly the sound we were hoping for from just the first two songs were heard from them. Classic brass, stunning vocalists, and an energy which you just can’t describe when you listen to them play. We met with Tom (the band leader) shortly after hearing their demo, and he came to our apartment to talk through the details and learn more about what they can offer. He even went as far as bringing us a recording from the last wedding they played so we could get a better idea of how it all sounds on a big day!! Their set list was so amazingly extensive and Tom encouraged us to let us know which were our favorites, or least favorites, and they would be happy to accommodate (Tom even offered to learn as many new songs as we wanted!).

We ended up with a short list of must haves and must nots, a new custom song for our first dance, but otherwise we liked the idea of letting them feel out the vibe of the crowd and react accordingly when it came to choosing the next song. And we couldn’t have made a better choice, as they kept the energy through the roof, and the dance floor packed all night! We can’t thank Tom and the Orchestra enough for everything, and even now 5 weeks later, we continue to get compliments on how great the band was on our big day! Thanks for everything TVK!!!

I cannot rave about TVK Orchestra enough. They made our wedding stand out from the rest! Our photographer told us he has never seen a more packed dance floor, and that was all because of TVK. Don't hesitate- book them now!

To say you have options when selecting a wedding band in Chicago would be an understatement. My husband and I had a total of 9 weddings in the year, prior to our own, so we experienced lots of different bands first hand, and spent plenty of time researching and comparing prices of all the different options. In the end, based on many positive reviews and price point, we hired TVK Orchestra for our June 2015 wedding in Chicago - best decision ever. Tom, the band leader, was absolutely wonderful to work with throughout the entire planning process; his experience and knowledge was so helpful when finalizing the music details of the evening, from the ceremony instrumental arrangements, to the opening dance set of the evening. Tom worked closely with our wedding coordinator to ensure that the musical aspects of the wedding were executed flawlessly, and that the timeline for the evening enabled as much time on the dance floor as possible. All 200 + guests were on the dance floor and loving the band; everyone was raving about the music, and asking me where I found TVK. Almost a month later and people are still talking about how great our band was - one of my cousins from Florida said he had never seen a wedding dance floor as packed as ours! My husband and I were hoping for a full-on dance party at our wedding, and we certainly got that with TVK Orchestra!

TVK Orchestra is amazing!! They kept our wedding guests dancing until 1:00am. Our dance floor was packed the entire night. Not only are they great musicians, they are great to work with. Tom is very sincere and will work with you to make your event be the best night it can be! Tom and his musicians were open to me playing a song with them for my groom. It is one of our favorite wedding night memories. Our guests have been talking about how great TVK Orchestra was the night of our wedding and I'm confident they'll be talking about it for a long time to come.

We had our wedding on Sept. 12 2015 and had TVK provide the cocktail music (piano), the dinner music (jazz trio), and the dancing (8 piece band) at our wedding reception. We could not have been any more thrilled with TVK!! We were more than excited for TVK to play our wedding leading up to it and what they did on the day of our wedding was better than we could have imagined! It seems everyone there could not stop complimenting the band, the dance floor was full the entire night, and multiple of our friends who were at the wedding booked TVK that night for their own weddings in the future! That itself speaks to how great they are!.

Tom was so professional and so great to work with beforehand. Peter and the rest of the band were great to work with the day of our wedding. We had provided them a request of 3-4 songs to play, but mostly just let them take care of what to play and it couldn't have gone any better. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anybody. Thank again to Tom, Peter and the entire talented band for a truly amazing wedding!
