Back2Life Band: Best Philadelphia Dance Party Band

Lucien’s Manor: Gabrielle and Cameron – August 3, 2018

We had a fantastic experience working with BVTLive!, and their band Back2Life. The BVT staff were very helpful and thorough as we searched for the right sound for our special day. Once we selected Back2Life, Marci and Mark were wonderful to work with as we planned all the fine details. The band's talent is incredible - they got all of our guests up and moving on the dance floor right from the start and it was never empty. It was especially meaningful for us that members of the band were private music teachers for some of our students (both my wife and I are grade school teachers), and that some of our guests were even friends with various band members. It was so special that we had this connection with them. We highly recommend BVTLive!, and especially Back2Life for all of your musical entertainment needs!

Indian River Inlet South Side: Nicole and Joe Ashton – June 22, 2018

Oh My GOD
I don't even know where to start
I cannot tell you how many times we heard - that was the best band ever. And we agree! I mean seriously - you killed it!!! you guys rocked. And kept on rocking throughout the whole night. The bend was on fire. I loved when you mixed in with everyone on the dance floor. The sax and horn -- I mean I forgot all about that!!!!!! The new lady singing with you really rounds you all out - she was delightful. Joe loves how everyone was so engaged. I can't write what he said but its close to you are ducking great 🙂
How do I repay you?
We are back to work but we just can't stop grinning. Thank you. Thank you for every event you have ever exceeded my expectations on and somehow you did it again when it was for Joe and I. Love you guys xoxoxoxoxo

Bill ....

Hands down the best band we have ever had here at BBCC! Wow ... just incredible. Thank you so very much.

My best,

Ballroom at Ellis Preserve: Bridget and Mike Mattei – December 29, 2017

Back2Life was sensational! They met with us prior to the wedding to discuss song selection and go over various details. The night of the reception they provided and confirmed all last minute details. They had everyone dancing and enjoying the night from the very start. The dance floor was barely big enough - everyone was dancing and singing along to the songs. Their musicianship was exceptional; singing (split among three singers) was terrific; and they had a feel for the crowd and energy. They showed their ability to stretch into various musical genres - all while keeping the crowd entertained. Their last numbers of the night were perfect - they knew exactly how to finish it up and put an exclamation point to everyone's evening! We highly recommend Back2Life for any occasion. They exceeded our expectations and helped make the night fantastic!

Artesano Iron Works: Sarah and George Mayer – October 7, 2017

Working with BVTLive and our wedding band Back2Life was INCREDIBLE. The entire process from booking to event date was seamless. We attended a BVT showcase after seeing Back2Life at an event. The showcase was so much fun. We immediately booked Back2Life. Working with Marci, Mark, and Kurt was so enjoyable. This is a group of people who truly enjoy what they do and aim to make each event just as special as the next. Their performance at our ceremony and reception was truly stellar. They handled everything! Ceremony music, cocktail hour tunes, introductions, first dance, parent dances, speeches, and other important highlights of the night. Then they truly rocked out for the duration of the evening. Our guests are still saying it was the "best wedding band they've ever heard" and we could not agree more! Thank you BVTLife and Back2Life for being apart of the best day of our lives!

Villanova Conference Center: Corporate Event – August 2, 2017

And the dancing has begun. If you're in the Philly area, do book the Back2Life Band. You'll dance your butt off.

Rehoboth Beach Country Club: Robin and Thom Harvey – July 29, 2017

The band Back2Life was absolutely fabulous in every way. They were great to work with, the play list was extensive, and they sounded amazing.

Thom and I would like to say thank you to you and all of the members of Back2 Life for making our reception absolutely spectacular. You all sounded amazing and our guests loved you. The whole evening was so fun! Thank you for being there and working with us. We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know.

Appleford: Taylor and Ron Douglas – June 3, 2017

We chose Back2Life for our wedding, and they were so awesome!! They exceeded our expectations and made our night even better!! They were very responsive to any questions we had and provided a great atmosphere for the night! I definitely would recommend them to anyone!!

- Taylor (Bride)

Normandy Farms: Nancy and Dylan Garges – March 18, 2017

Back2Life was a pleasure to work with and very professional. Everyone was dancing all night and I cannot tell you how many people commented on how great the band was during and after the wedding. I would highly recommend them to anyone!!

- Nancy

Brantwyn Estate: Nancy and Edward Staley – March 3, 2017

Selecting and hiring Back2Life for our wedding was one of the easiest things we did! The timing of our reception changed a few times in the early stages of planning and BVTLive! was so accommodating as we sorted through the details - in fact every request we made from music selections to set up in the venue was completed as we asked. Back2Life was just as amazing as the first time I'd seen them. The dance floor was full the whole evening and my guests continue to rave about them three months later. There isn't a thing we'd change about the music and we wouldn't hesitate to use BVTLive! again or to refer them to anyone looking for music.

Manufacturer’s Golf and Country Club: Pamela and Joseph Baragona – November 5, 2016

BVTLive was an incredible addition to our wedding. They were responsive to our needs and very thorough. Everyone was pleasant and respectful. My husband and I absolutely loved our band, Back2Life. They played everything we wanted and more. They helped provide backup music while I played the guitar and sang for my husband in front of almost 200 people. They even played my favorite song so I could sing along with the band. Marci, the lead singer, called and chatted with me for over a half hour to review all of our music needs. We heard so many positive reviews from our guests. Lots said it was the best wedding they'd been to in a long time! The band certainly got everyone on their feet!

Atlantic Sands: Erin and Craig Beebe – October 29, 2016

This band made our entire event , recommend them fully. They were outstanding and went above and beyond.

- Nora (Mother of the Bride)

Berkshire Country Club: Sarah and George Combs – October 8, 2016

BVTLive is very responsive from the very start. The band we choose, Back2Life, was AMAZING! One of the lead singers met with us in person to discuss our song choices and what not to play as well. She guided us in the right direction in terms of what is the norm for schedule of wedding reception and order of events. The best part was how the band was INCREDIBLE with such high energy!!! Every single one of our 200 guests danced the night away!! We are so happy with our choice and would choose them again if given the opportunity!

Valley Forge Military Academy: Pamela and Bret Maffett – September 24, 2016 – Note

Dear Kurt, Marci, and Back2Life,
You all sure brought the party to our wedding and we cannot thank you enough! We loved the variety of music you played and the first dance song was perfect – We are so grateful that you learned it for us. Thank you so much for helping make our wedding day perfect, we got so many compliments for choosing you all with plenty saying “best band ever!” We are so appreciative and will tell everyone we know to book Back2Life.

Sincerely, Pamela & Brett Maffett

Valley Forge Military Academy: Pamela and Brett Maffett – September 24, 2016

Bill set us up with Back2Life as our wedding band this past weekend and we are so incredibly grateful! Look no further than this band, Kurt and Marci did the most incredible job getting together the best song list I've ever heard at a wedding (partially my bias, but we've also had so many compliments from friends and family) and Marci kept everything on track! They had everyone of all ages dancing and singing ALL night! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

- Pamela

The Barn at Silverstone: Kimberly and Justin Plaum – September 17, 2016

AMAZING! We cannot recommend BVTLive and our band, Back2Life, more. From the start, the entire team was helpful, responsive, and understanding of our vision. Everyone was quick to respond to emails or phone calls, and helped us find the perfect band for our day. The band members were great to work with, and we received so many compliments! Back2Life kept everyone entertained and dancing all night long! We highly recommend this company and band to anyone looking for a great time at a reasonable price!

- Kimberly


I've been meaning to contact you to let you know how much i truly enjoyed working with Back 2 life, specifically Marcy and Kurt!  They were phenomenal to listen to, but for me, more importantly to work with and communicate with!  I really look forward to working with them again in the future!!!!  They seriously were the best!

Penn Museum: Color Guard, Sons of the Revolution Event – September 16, 2016

I wanted to touch base to tell you that Back2Life did a great job on Friday evening. The music was terrific and they were a fun and lively band. We would not hesitate to invite them to play for us again in the future.  

Thanks for everything.

National Constitution Center: Teresa and Roman Galas – June 18, 2016

Awesome vendor that hooked us up with an absolutely awesome band: Back2Life. We loved them, would 100% recommend them, and hope to find another event where we can hire them again someday! We found BVTLive and Back2Life on the BVTLive website, which is very user friendly. After searching each band's individual links, which contains a detailed song list and video clips from each band, we honed in on Back2Life as the band that spoke to us. We were then able to go see them perform live (for free) at a nearby BVTLive showcase. The live performance sealed the deal for us, and we hired them that night. A great process for the customer to be sure of what they are getting. Once the ink signed on the contract papers, we then worked directly with the band to fine tune things. The leaders, Marci and Kurt, who are super friendly and nice, met with us in person to get a feel for us, our guests, and their audience. Smart. The band was also more than happy to learn new songs we requested -- and nailed them on our big day! They nailed every other song too! Great versatility too. Marci could have filled in for Sarah Brightman the way she killed "Think of Me" from Phantom of the Opera. Every single person was on the dance floor for the Polish Polka song. And the band just totally rocked out on 80's hair metal staples like Jump, Final Countdown, Purple Rain, and Don't Stop Beleving (which they let us do open mic style so the crowd could join in). They also learned The Promise by one hit wonder When in Rome, just so my husband could serenade me with it! Like I said, so flexible. And we were not the only ones who thought the band killed it - we got so many compliments on them. We really, truly could not have been happier with Back2Life! Thank you!! All in all, a top notch experience. We HIGHLY recommend BVTLive and Back2Life!!

French Creek Golf Club: Brandywine Hospital Physicians Dinner – April 29, 2016

Just a quick note to tell you how fabulous the band was last night. Kurt and everyone were terrific. I hope to use them in the future at hospital and personal events, too! Thanks for all your help... Looking forward to working with you again. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend and take care,

The Union Trust: Laura and Wyatt France Wedding – March 4, 2016

Back2Live played at our wedding on March 4th, and they were absolutely phenomenal! Everyone that attended raved about them for weeks afterward, they made the reception unforgettable! People danced for hours. The happily learned our wedding song, my parents wedding songs and a few others that have special meaning to us but weren't on the play list. The entire band was friendly, upbeat and kept the crowd going. They even handled an over served guest and grace and class, checking with me to make sure it was ok for them to play a song that was requested. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a band and I am confident that all 125 wedding guests would too!

Philadelphia Marriott Downtown: 2016 Lemon Ball – January 16, 2016

...I wanted to send a thanks to you for your support of The Lemon Ball.  The band is always fantastic – they really get the crowd going.  We couldn’t do that level of talent without your support!

I know I am (very) biased, but I thought the evening was especially inspiring this year with the amazing award winners and the show of generosity from everyone all night long.  I hope you and the team enjoyed it!

Thanks again for your continued support.

Hotel du Pont: Gill-Quinn Wedding – August 22, 2015

"We were BLOWN away by how awesome Back2Life was for our wedding. We did not want all "typical wedding music," so requested some rock music to be played at the end of the evening (e.g., Metallica, Alice in Chains, etc.) and not only did the band learn the songs we requested, but they NAILED them! Our guests raved about how diverse the music was and how, at times, they felt like they were at a concert and just "stopped to listen." I highly reccomend Back2Life for any event (wedding, birthday, anniversary...)."

- Julia (Bride)

Merion Tribute House: Crozier – Pileggi Wedding – September 6, 2015

"People are still talking about how amazing Back2Life was! From first speaking to Bill about logistics to face timing with band leader Kurt a week before the wedding, using BVTLive it was a really nice and easy process. The band ROCKED the house and our guests loved the high energy and music that had the dance floor packed all night. They were far and away better than I ever imagined and highly recommend using this band and service for your event or wedding!"

- Noelle

Mraz-Carey Wedding – June 27, 2015

"We used BVTLive! to book a band for our oldest daughter's wedding celebration (the actual wedding was in March). BVTLive! was very nice to work with. They were professional and listened carefully to what we were looking for. They recommended the perfect band for our party - Back2Life. The party was in our garden under a tent and unfortunately, there were heavy rains. People got wet and the dance floor got muddy. Back2Life was fabulous! They kept the party going and had everyone dancing. Our guests loved them. Without Back2Life, the party would have been a soggy flop. We're glad we have three more daughters to marry so we can hire them again."

- Dorothy, Mother of The Bride 

Chester Valley Golf Club: Eifert – Brown Wedding – May 16, 2015

"Back 2 Life was fantastic and made the wedding great! I can't recommend them enough!! Everyone raved about the music and it definitely made our wedding one of the best our friends and family have attended."
