  • What a pleasure it was working with “Big Ric Rising” from BVT Live! Big Ric and his team approached the day and the weeks leading up to it with absolute class. Talking with Ric and Nils on the phone was like connecting with an old friend you haven’t seen in a while. Their energy and enthusiasm in making sure they had all of our wishes in mind carried over to the wedding day. If my wife didn’t look so stunning, I’d say Big Ric and his crew absolutely stole the show. From the moment we were introduced, our guests knew they were in for a party unlike any wedding they’ve attended before. They kept the dance floor packed for the duration of our reception. Ric’s voice and energy was impeccable, his accompanying singers were flawless and the band’s sound was amazing! All of our guests from our 12 year old cousin to our 90 year old Grandmother had nothing but compliments toward the band! Many of our soon to be married guests asked for their contact info to book for their big da... Read more

  • Midnight Hour performed during both the cocktail hour and also the reception at our October 29 wedding at HollyHedge Estate. Both Bill Handy at BVT and Shavin Duffy, the band lead for Midnight Hour, were incredibly helpful and collaborative throughout our planning process. Their guidance and seasoned experience were invaluable as we configured our wedding timeline and music selection. For our wedding, we knew we wanted instrumental classics during cocktail hour and lots of dancing during the reception, loaded with Motown hits as well as classics from the 80s and 90s. Shavin understood our taste and helped us curate the perfect song list to ensure our guests would never leave the dance floor. On our wedding day, Midnight Hour were consummate professionals. They were amazing MCs, friendly and courteous with all our guests, professionally (and stylishly) dressed, and extremely easy to work with. Since they have their own dedicated sound technician (who also managed audio for our ce... Read more

  • Denny & Strangers were amazing from start to start to finish! In the midst of all the wedding chaos, Denny & Strangers, were the one aspect I did not stress over. I threw a lot of curve balls with requests they never played before and they nailed it! Thank you, Next by Ariana was one song that got everyone dancing on the floor and has guests raving how awesome it was! I have been flooded with requests on who they were since my wedding! If you are looking for a band that is going to keep the party going and bring the fun- THIS IS IT!

  • We booked Strangers Rock 'n Roll band through BVT and they were spectacular!! They delivered in every aspect of our expectations, between the ceremony music with a special vocal song for the bride to walk down the aisle, through the jazz ensemble during cocktails and then the reception. Just AMAZING talent and energy in this band, they had all 155 wedding guests dancing almost every single song for hours! I don't think they even stopped to eat their dinner - at least I never noticed and I'm MOB! Denny and Rick were great to work with planning the evening and boy, did they deliver! I was so worried hiring a band because "a band can make or break a wedding". We are beyond ecstatic with how much fun Strangers made our daughter's wedding. I will hire them again, without a doubt, for my next daughter's wedding! Thanks Strangers!

  • Everyone at BVTLive! was incredible; from Paul, who helped us pick our band, Strangers, to Denny and Rick who were our point-people in the band, everyone displayed exceptional professionalism and customer service. We had been working with Paul discussing another BVT band (which was a little out of our price range), and had decided on a band from another agency. We recieved a phone call from that agency that the band we had requested was unavailable, and called Paul back to inquire about additional BVT bands- he texted us from a wedding that he was about to play, to set up a time to discuss additional band options, and we were able to attend another showcase the following week, where we met Strangers. After than, everything fell into place. Strangers had everything we were looking for- oldies, jazz, 80s rock, and a stand-out horn section. We met with Denny and Rick a few months before the wedding, and reviewed our preferences, and they even learned an Italian pop song as a surprise for ... Read more

  • We had Back2Life play at our wedding and boy, did they rock the place! They were AMAZING! They got everyone up and dancing, even my father-in-law who was sure he wouldn’t be up on his feet! We first saw them at a music showcase and loved them immediately and they were even better at our wedding! I don’t have one negative thing to say about them! By the end of the night, I had at least 10-15 guests ask me where I found them and who they were! If you’re looking for wonderful live entertainment, look no further than Back2Life (or any BVT band they were all fantastic)!

  • We had a combination of The Midnighters band for our ceremony/cocktail hour and DJ Pat for our reception. Both were EXTREMELY easy to work with which allowed my wife and I to focus on the other details. After the cocktail hour, we kept getting compliments on how awesome the band was (The Midnighters) and after the reception we received more compliments on DJ Pat! I cannot recommend BVTLive! enough for anyone planning a wedding. It was well worth every penny!

  • BVTLive! was professional from the very beginning and the process of hiring them for our wedding was painless! On our actual wedding day, DJ Pat kept our reception moving smoothly and played music that even my grandmother liked! Everyone was up dancing at no point did it feel like the reception was dragging or boring and I attribute this to the expertise of DJ Pat. I'd recommend BVTLive! to any couple looking for a DJ that knows how to 'read a room' and play amazing music!

  • After attending a BVTLive! wedding band showcase, we selected Strangers for our wedding. This was probably the single best decision we made for our wedding. The band sounded incredible and played hit after hit all night. Our guests danced for hours and people were still talking about how great the band was weeks after our wedding! Denny (band leader) and Rick (ceremony music coordinator) were both so nice, easy to work with, and genuinely invested in making our day perfect. We can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you Strangers!

  • It’s no secret that jelly roll is Philadelphia’s best wedding band! They kept the party going the entire night, were extremely easy to work with and fulfilled every specific request we had and everyone left commenting on how amazing the band was! Already booked them for my sisters wedding! Thank you for the best day ever

  • From the first time we heard Strangers at a showcase my now wife and I knew they were the perfect fit for our wedding! Everything from the level of organization to quality of musicianship and highly interactive performance kept our entire group on the dance floor the whole night. Many guests came up to us just to compliment the band. Cannot recommend highly enough!

  • Joe and his partner were amazing. They helped guide me through a lot of issues I wasn’t really sure about. That made working with them a breeze. They read and worked the crowd great! The wedding was a hit and everyone danced throughout the reception. Highly recommend *****
