Back2Life Band: Philadelphia Dance Party Band
John James Audobon Center at Mill Grove: Zoe and Colin Morris, November 18, 2023
Back2Life was the absolute perfect band we could have ever wanted for our wedding. They kept the dance floor ALIVE for the entire reception- they listened to our music preferences/tastes and curated the perfect setlist. Their cocktail hour music was beautiful. Everyone at our wedding talked about how great the band was, they truly made all the difference in making our wedding a great time. We are so grateful!

Our wedding was an absolute blast, thanks in large part to Back2Life! Throughout the entire night, everyone was on the dance floor, and no one wanted to sit down. The energy and music were so captivating that our guests are still raving about it. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. They have a wide variety of songs and brought the ENERGY. If you want to ensure your wedding is an unforgettable dance party, Back2Life! is the way to go.

Back2Life was everything we were hoping in our band and more! They were the life of the party and kept our guests on the dance floor all night long! They were accommodating to our needs and played just the right music for our taste. I would 100% hire them again - no questions asked!

Chesapeake Bay Beach Club: Christy and Joe Petrino, September 29, 2023
Back2Life was our wedding band on 9/29/23 - if you don't hire them, you're doing it wrong!! We had the best experience from start to finish in all aspects of the planning process and the day-of events. Each and every member of the band is SO extremely talented. Our guests have nonstop been raving about our band - saying our wedding band was the best they've ever heard/experienced - which makes us SO happy because a great band was extremely important to us. We had a 141 person wedding and when I tell you EVERYBODY was on the dance floor all night long, I mean everybody! Truly could not have worked with a more professional, talented, and all around awesome group for our wedding day. They paid attention to every detail to make our day exactly how we wanted it - 10/10 would recommend!

Absolutely amazing!!! Back2Life was an absolute pleasure to work with leading up the wedding. Mark was super communicative and helped us make the right song choices for our special day. The day of the wedding, Back2Life absolutely tore down the house!!! From the first to last song, the dance floor was packed and the energy was incredible. We couldn't have asked for a better band for our wedding. 5-star experience - would highly recommend!

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!

Tappan Hill Mansion: Hayne and Will Ritchings- October 8, 2022
When my sister-in-law got married, she had Back2Life, one of BVT's bands at her wedding and my (now) husband and knew we NEEDED them at our wedding too! When we got engaged, they were the first vendor we thought to book, and with good reason! Paul, the manager, was incredibly helpful in creating our reception timeline and answering all of our questions. Our first dance song was a bit unique but Paul said it was no problem, they would be able to learn it in time (and they crushed it!). They have an infectious energy and incredible talent. Their performances on our wedding night were amazing, our dance floor was packed all night!

The Union League of Philadelphia: Courteney and Chris Algiere – November 12, 2022
We had the BEST experience with BVTLive! Back2Life was everything we dreamed of and more for our wedding! They were so helpful leading up to the event, making sure they knew our favorite music and all of our first dance/parent dance songs etc. They were so responsive, friendly, and FUN! We are still getting compliments on what a killer band they were. Could not recommend them more highly! They kept our dance floor packed all night long!

Rosary Hall: Ariel and Rick Cheli – October 29, 2022

- Joe (Groom)
Michener Art Museum: Laurie and Tom McCaffrey – October 14, 2022
Above and Beyond Expectations. We had an amazing experience with the Back2Life band. Wedding planning is always stressful but Mark made it easy throughout the process and we've received amazing feedback from guests about the music.... we got a few "that was the best band I've ever heard!" too! We are so appreciative that they were willing to play 2 songs outside their setlist that were special to us as well. We kept going back and forth about choosing a band or DJ and so glad we went this route.
- Laurie (Bride)
The High Point: Allison and James Tomosky – October 7, 2022
We saw this band at a showcase and we were blown away. it was probably the thing that we were most excited for at our wedding. they did such an incredible job that everybody from our wedding is still talking about how amazing our band was. I would love to relive the day just so that I could dance on the dance floor with this band again. I couldn’t recommend them enough, you are crazy if you don’t hire them!

Avalon Yacht Club: Beth and Kevin Hylinski – September 17, 2022
We wanted to sincerely thank you, and the rest of Back2Life, for making our wedding dreams come true. From the beginning, we wanted to throw a rocking party with a full dance floor and you guys made that happen, and more! Working with you on ceremony music, reception details, and playlist was a breeze and we really appreciate everything that you did for us. Our guests were singing your praises and a few asked for your contact information for future events.
- Beth (Bride)
American Swedish History Museum: Lauren and Tom Hoopes – September 3, 2022
We are beyond thrilled with how everything went and clearly our guests had the time of their lives dancing the night away together! That is truly all we could ask for on our big day and we are just so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you. You also made planning very easy and positive, which we greatly appreciated, and you all are just beyond talented and friendly. Your positive energy makes you guys stand out from the others - you can tell you have fun performing together, which is amazing! Thank you again for making our wedding dreams come true 🙂 and wishing you all a happy fall season ahead!

Winterthur: Jane and Arthur Chadwick – August 27, 2022
This band should be called “Dance Till You Drop” because there wasn’t a single wedding guest not soaking wet by the end of the evening.
We were allowed to preselect our favorite songs from their extensive 300 song library and their renditions were spot on. We are Family, Brown Eyed Girl, Dancing Queen, and so much more kept the crowd in a frenzy for hours.
What was particularly special was their ability to play custom requests ahead of time. In our case, these songs took the reception to a whole new level - Miss You (our grand entrance), This Guy’s in Love with You (our first dance with the bride’s son on clarinet and groom’s son on trumpet) and the closer, Honky Tonk Woman (with the groom and his buddies on vocals) were still being talked about the next day.
Back2Life is a well oiled machine and the nine talented members seemed to be having as great a time as the guests.
Special thanks to the solo pianist for the ceremony with Can’t Help Falling in Love with You which was absolutely mesmerizing.
Ten stars out of ten.

Springford Country Club: Danielle and Bret Howey – August 6, 2022
Back2Life was the perfect band for our wedding! During our reception and even a few days later as people were talking to us about our wedding, so many people commented on how great the band was. Each member of the band is so talented. The band leader Mark was great to speak to on the phone helping me prepare the music selection for the reception. The made accommodated all of my requests. One that I’m so happy they did was play Remember This that they took the time to learn. The best was when I walked into my reception and they started playing Valerie! I love that song.

French Creek Golf Club: Catherine and Zach Norton – July 2, 2022
Bands are the way to go! Having gone to multiple weddings, we figured out there was one common factor that made some weddings better than others; there was a band. You need a group to orchestrate the night and a great band can do that. Encouraging groups to get out on the floor, interact with the crowd, and bring the fun through specially selected songs that every generation can get behind.
We had the opportunity to work with "Back to Life," a BVT band, and they were phenomenal! Their online portal made sharing the wedding day agenda and song selection a breeze. After a first pass, we made our initial call with the band director and went through everything, and had all of our questions answered on the spot. Mark Ludwig (band director) made our lives so easy throughout the entire process which we totally appreciate.
I think I'm speaking for everyone who attended the wedding, we could not have had a better than we did with any other bad out there.

Ballroom at Ellis Preserve: Maddie and Derek Dyer – June 25, 2022
Best Band EVER!!! Back2Life was everything we could have imagined and MORE! They were the best band to have at our wedding and had the dance floor packed ALL night long. Mark, the band leader, was so easy and fun to work with during the planning process and even had the band learn all 3 of our dance songs (first dance, father/daughter, mother/son). They truly made our day so special and absolutely rocked it from start to finish. 100/10 recommend Back2Life for any wedding!!!!
- Maddie (Bride)
Flourtown Country Club: Alina and Eric Poandl – June 18, 2022
Back2Life MADE our wedding!!! It's been nearly a month and guests are still raving about how much fun they had dancing and partying with B2L! Their energy and enthusiasm was infectious and they were a dream to work with.
Mark made us feel comfortable right away and suggested the perfect music for our day. We even asked for a couple of special requests for my ceremony entrance and my husband's first dance with his mother and they were able to accommodate no problem!
We’re so happy we chose B2L and can’t recommend them enough!

Old Mill Rose Valley: Sarah and Pat Connell – May 27, 2022
Back2Life Band led by Mark Ludwig were the perfect choice for our 120 person wedding with guests ranging from 10 years old to 80 years old. Everyone loved the music and were dancing all night!! We are still getting feedback from our guests at how great the music was even 1 month later!!! BVT also provided a harpist for the ceremony and a jazz duet for the cocktail hour. Everyone loved them too! From start to finish, we are very very happy with the music and the planning that took place prior. Very professional, courteous and accommodating. Thank you BVT and Back2Life band!!!

Crystal Tea Room: Andrea and Frank Ganther – May 6, 2022
Back2Life is just phenomenal! They really get the party going and are so interactive with the group. We received so many compliments about them from the guests at our daughter's recent wedding. In fact, most said that they were the best band they have ever heard at an event. We certainly agree and highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.

The Phoenixville Foundry: Molly and Luke Fraser – January 15, 2022
A true party! We used BVTLive! to book Back2Life for our wedding & my husband and I can easily say it was one of the best choices we've ever made! Working with Back2Life was wonderful, they were professional and quick to respond to our questions/requests. They went out of their way to make sure our night was special to us! From ceremony, to cocktail hour, to the dance floor, Back2Life was exactly what our wedding day needed. Our guests danced the night away - there wasn't a warm seat in the venue! We would highly recommend working with BVTLive! & Back2Life for your wedding day!
