    BVTLive! Strangers Performs the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Lemon Ball Gala

    We had the pleasure of welcoming Liz Scott and the Alex’s Lemonade Stand team to our  live band showcase in anticipation of their Lemon Ball Gala in January of 2024. As many of you may know, this remarkable foundation is dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer, a cause close to Liz’s heart as Alex’s mother.

    For over a decade we have donated entertainment to the Lemon Ball Gala with our band, Strangers at the helm. It is a beautiful, and moving night filled with guest speakers and survivors, a live auction, and after-dinner dancing.

    BVTLive! Notable Performances:

    BVTLive! performs at Jason Kelce’s Wedding:

    BVTLive! had the pleasure of performing the wedding ceremony for Philadelphia Eagles legend, Jason Kelce and his beautiful bride Kylie at the Logan Hotel! The Ceremony was stunning, complete with Eagles players at every turn, and Kelce’s 120lb sheepdog to walk them down the aisle.

    Our duo, with Nils Mossblad on saxophone and Jake Calberman on guitar, serenaded the lovely couple as they walked down the aisle. Fun fact: Kelce wanted a saxophonist for his ceremony because he plays sax himself!

    BVTLive! Jellyroll shares the stage with Tim McGraw!

    Perhaps one of our most noteworthy wedding receptions for our band, Jellyroll, was when a father of the bride surprised his daughter during the father daughter dance with a rendition of My Girl by Tim McGraw, and Tim actually coming out on stage to perform!

    This surprise not only shocked the bride, but shocked all of the guests as well as vendors. We knew about the surprise before and had to keep it quiet to make the moment special. It went above and beyond our expectations.

    BVTLive! Jellyroll performs at the White House…. Twice!

    Jellyroll received perhaps the highest honor bestowed upon a band, and was invited by President Bush and First Lady, Laura Bush, to perform at the 2007 Congressional Ball. The Congressional Ball is attended by Congress as well as additional dignitaries and their guests.

    After a private photo session with the President and First Lady in the East Diplomatic Reception Room, Jellyroll performed an almost three hour show only to be asked by President Bush for an additional 20 minute encore. In 2008, Jellyroll was asked back to the White House at the request of First Lady Laura Bush for her 44th high school reunion.
