Carnivále: The Baddest Band on The Planet

Union Trust: Emily and Ryan Iaciofano – August 27, 2022

Carnivale exceeded my wildest expectations. The band killed it, the lead singer was terrific and they played all night! As this was my daughters wedding, you would expect me to be biased but I’ve had so many attendees comment that this was the best band they’d heard at an event. Thank you Carnivale!

The BEST Wedding Band! Carnivale is without a doubt the best wedding band out there! They kept the dance floor packed the entire night. Played exactly the style of music we asked for. Played for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. All our guests raved about them! Highly recommend!

Flourtown Country Club: Annie and Shawn McGee – June 25, 2022

Carnivale went above and beyond our expectations! I had seen Carnivale perform before and loved them then…but our wedding was a whole new level. Working with El was such a pleasure and full of excitement discussing our music selections. The band even performed a Zac Brown Band song for our first dance which was a total surprise for my husband. He danced and sang the night away. Our wedding was two months ago and our guests are still talking about how great the band was!! We had so many hiccups and issues the day of our wedding but Carnivale was our saving grace!! They made our wedding and it’s a memory that we will cherish for all the years to come!!

The Bellevue Rose Garden: Leah and Scott Diamond – June 18, 2022

From the first time I spoke with Kurt then El’Ahmad (bandleader of Carnivale) I knew that my daughter's wedding would be musically spectacular - and they didn't disappoint. BVTLIVE's staff were great - always available and incredibly responsive to any and all questions. Carnivale and especially El Ahmad gave a dynamic musical performance. The entire evening continually bringing the energy level higher with each passing hour. They were masters of reading the crowd and playing the right music at the right time. There was never a lull on the dance floor the entire evening. The crowd didn't want them to stop even after the party was ending. The band went above and beyond our expectations. Thanks very much to Kurt, BVTLIVE, and especially Carnivale for giving my daughter "the best day of her life "
Best wishes and Continued Success!

Carnivale is everything they promised and more! Carnivale was absolutely awesome! El promised to have everyone dancing until the very end and they sure were.. young and old. Just about everyone came to us and asked about the band.. they were great. El and Carnivale made it the best fun. I can't say enough about how they worked the crowd .. you won't go wrong. We suggested certain songs off their song list just to show some of the music we liked but we left it up to El to play what he felt would get the best response.... and wow, did the crowd respond. Our guests are still talking about how good the band (Carnivale) was and much fun they had. Thanks El and Carnivale

Grand Hotel: Melanie and David Kuhn – May 21, 2022

Carnivále is the best wedding band I’ve ever heard and we were so lucky to be able to book them! El is one of the kindest people you’ll ever meet and he’s so easy to work with.

Cescaphe Ballroom: Gabrielle and Matt Potocko – April 29, 2022

I just want to say once again thank you for making our wedding last Friday the most epic dance party my friends and family have ever been to. People are literally still talking about how fantastic you were. I need my sister to find a husband so we can book Carnivale at her wedding ASAP!

The Lucy: Briana and Patrick Sheridan – April 8, 2022

You cannot go wrong with BVTLive! & Carnivale. From my first inquiry, the showcases, to the day-of, we were well taken care of. Carnivale absolutely crushed it!!!!!! Every single one of my guests was up on the dance floor. They have so much energy up on that stage and truly seem to have fun WITH us. El and the band learned several songs for us and completely nailed them (A Penn state classic football jam, a jersey boy mix/mashup). El was excited about learning them for us and was super into it! So many people have been asking for the name of my band. Everyone was blown away.

Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia: Kimberly and Skip Consalo – March 12, 2022

Thank you so much!!  We got so many compliments on our “band”!!  You guys were awesome!!  I especially loved you singing to my mom.  I can’t wait to see the pictures and videos!  The night went by so fast, I wanted to dance more . . .  So we are talking about our next “party” and hopefully Carnivale will be available to help us out!

Union Trust: Elisa and William Callaghan – February 19, 2022

Carnivale is the best band ever! My now husband and I choose Carnivale as our band for our wedding and they were out this world. The review I am writing won’t even do it justice - El’ (band lead) and the band members were out of this world. They were energetic, engaging, and so talented. The dance floor was packed the entire time, which is what I wanted, I wanted everyone to have fun and listen to live music. I had our wedding guests come up to me after and say that “this was the best wedding they had ever been to” because they had so much fun out on the dance floor. Carnivale was the best part of our wedding and because of them we have so many memories that will forever be cherished. Don’t look any further, use Carnivale for your wedding.
