Fabulous, best wedding band I’ve ever experienced. Our guests never sat down! Back2Life was beyond fabulous and Mark Ludwig was so responsive and intuitive about what works. No one ever sat down, our guests commented that that might have been the best wedding Band they’ve ever heard!

About Back2Life Band

Back2Life band originally approached BVTLive! seeking representation as a trio. The original Back2Life Trio became so popular that BVTLive!’s clients continuously requested that the group perform at their Philadelphia weddings and other events. It seemed only natural to add a dynamic drummer, exceptional keyboardist, a multi-instrumentalist trumpet/ bass/ keyboardist, and a polished saxophonist. Consequently, the Back2Life band has quickly become a top Philadelphia dance party band, especially with the wedding parties that have grown up enjoying the hits of the 1980s and 1990s.
