Investing in the Future of Our Industry The Philadelphia Vicinity Club Manager’s Association (PVCMA) is an organization of all the country clubs in area, and each year, its foundation awards scholarships to deserving individuals who demonstrate a strong presence or promise in the hospitality industry. For the first time ever, BVTLive! has committed to contributing $1,000 to these scholarship awards yearly, as a friend of the Philadelphia Club Foundation! This year’s recipient was chosen as for her exceptional work as an intern at the Philadelphia Country Club.

All About Me and Lou Lanza Amaze at the Union League of Philadelphia On November 1st, the #1 City Club in the Country, the Union League of Philadelphia, hosted its annual Fall Ball. BVTLive! was privileged to be able to contribute to this event, as All About Me and Lou Lanza with Swing Easy, performed for the evening. With over 900 people in attendance, All About Me received rave reviews as they kept members dancing all night long. Lou Lanza and his band, Swing Easy featuring Joanna Pascale, were a perfect fit to the classic-retro lounge provided by the club.

Jellyroll Rocks The Royal Worthington Apartments It is not typical for a BVTLive! dance band to perform for the opening of an apartment building, but this was not a typical situation, nor is The Royal Worthington in Malvern your typical apartment building. It all started when developer Brian O’Neill of O’Neill Properties saw Jellyroll perform at a wedding at the Hyatt at the Bellevue in Philadelphia. After seeing Jellyroll, Brian decided to have an opening gala, to unveil the trend setting new Royal Worthington Apartments in Malvern’s Uptown Worthington. The event took place on October 30th in an clear top tent built in the courtyard of the Royal Worthington Apartments. The unique tent was built by our friends at Eventquip. J.

DJ Fusion group continued to wow the guests, with Jon...
