City Rhythm Band: Live Wedding Band in Philadelphia
The Merion: Alexa and Dante Oriente – July 31, 2021
Pete and the band were fantastic! They were very responsive and incorporated everything we wanted into our day. The biggest ask was to ensure they were very engaging with the crowd and feed off their energy...they did that and then some!!!

Lancaster Country Club: Alexandra and Anthony Campanile – June 26, 2021
City Rhythm was exceptional! Our band leader Pete was accessible and incredibly helpful in planning our event prior to the wedding. The band was incredible during cocktail hour and our reception. They played beautiful music throughout our dinner time and then got everyone up on the dance floor all night after dinner. The songs they played for our entrance, cake cutting and first dance/parent dances were incredible. I could not have picked a better band. They also were so fun to listen to online prior to booking!

The Estate at Farrington Lake: Jessica and Reuben Rozenbaum – May 30, 2021

Greenville Country Club: Paige and Max Stutman – May 22, 2021
Pete and the guys were awesome Saturday night! They helped produce an epic night and I would highly recommend these guys! Wedding guests were singing their praises all night and the next day!

Ballroom at Ellis Preserve: Renee and Ted Rhinehart – December 20, 2019
Best party band! City Rhythm made my wedding so memorable! From start to finish - I knew the dance floor would be full and it was! I am a wedding planner myself and highly recommend this band. The variety of songs they play is incredible and the band leader Pete is a true professional!

Ridgeland Mansion: Alessandra and Alexander Robertson – October 13, 2019
Pete Spina and City Rhythm did such an amazing job at our wedding. They set the tone of the entire wedding from the ceremony to the reception. They were able to transition seamlessly from a trio during the ceremony to Italian classics during the cocktail hour to an energetic variety for the reception. They accommodated every request. They gave the entire event such amazing energy. We continue to get compliments from the guests about the band. Everyone had an amazing time, and I credit so much of that to City Rhythm. I can't recommend them enough. Thank you so much!!
- Alessandra (Bride)
Marriott at Penn Square: Christmas In July – July 20, 2019
Just wanted to write and say THANK YOU for an amazing evening! My host duties pulled me away from the event at the end and I did not have a chance to thank you all or say goodbye. Nothing but rave reviews! Your fellow singers were just amazing! I have never seen this group get up and dance AND form a conga line at a convention. I posted a link to your website on our main Glow Facebook page tonight. There are 27,000 people on that page, so it should get you some business!

Philadelphia Cricket Club: Caroline and Matthew Barry – June 28, 2019
Talented and diverse band that had EVERYONE dancing. Pete and City Rhythm were amazing to work with. They took the time to understand what me and my wife's musical tastes are, and used their experience to weave in music that would appeal to everyone at the wedding. They are incredibly diverse and talented. They had literally everyone from friends to aunts, uncles, and grandparents on the dance floor the entire night. They were such an important part of our night and really delivered an amazing experience for me, my wife, and all of our guests. We planned our wedding from afar and went of the YouTube videos as our guide as we did not get the chance to see them in person beforehand. They wound up being even better than the videos online! I would highly recommend City Rhythm to anyone looking to make great music a focal point of their wedding. Pete, the band leader, was great to work and really professional in planning out the day to provide continuous music and MC the reception.

The Anthony Wayne House – Nicole and Christopher Saveanu – June 8, 2019
Easy to work with. Lots of Compliments from Guests! We had City Rhythm, a BVTLive Band, perform at our wedding. They were a huge hit with guests and we got lots of compliments on them afterwards. It was so easy to work with them to customize things we wanted to do for our ceremony (we had a family member sing and they worked with her to learn the music for her song). I would definitely recommend them.
- Nicole (Bride)
The Pendry: Alexandra and Michael Guerriere – June 1, 2019
City Rhythm entertained every guest at our wedding, from grandparents all the way to our youngest guests. They were dynamic and fun throughout the night and were the highlight of our wedding.
- Alexandra (Bride)
The Cosmos Club: Stephanie and Bill Padula – May 25, 2019
City Rhythm Orchestra is the best band ever! Not just for a wedding but any occasion. They played a perfect mix of oldies and new popular music for our big day. Wish we could do it again. Steve R. Nailed the Frank Sinatra tunes, so make sure you ask for that.
- Bill (Groom)
Free Library: Aimee and Matt Yogg – September 22, 2018
I never got a chance to thank you on Saturday, but the band was beyond incredible! From the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception - they could not have done a more perfect job. Matt and I are so thrilled - your team really exceeded our wildest expectations.
Thank you for making our wedding day truly perfect,
- Aimee & Matt (Bride and Groom)
Woodcrest Country Club: Jill and Paul Cynewski – June 30, 2018
City Rhythm was wonderful. They played a wide variety of music and kept our guests dancing all night!... It all went too fast and we wanted more!!!!

Private Residence: Julianna Wood – June 23, 2018
The party was absolutely fabulous! The band was on time, very pleasant, played great music and everyone had a great time. Many people commented that they had actually seen the band perform at some Frank Sinatra-type event and complimented them quite a bit.
Thanks for all your help to make my party such a success!!
Horticultural Center: Emily and Angelo Camano – May 5, 2018
City Rhythm is THE BEST!!! As a bride, you can be completely hands-off when you hire this band. They know what they're doing, and they will perform above and beyond your expectations. They stick to the timeline given as far as MC'ing the reception, they play ALL types of music for any generation, and they remember all of your requests! We requested specific songs not only be played, but be played at a certain time, and City Rhythm 100% complied. We had a non-traditional ceremony and wanted it to have a fun atmosphere, so the groom and groomsmen walked down the aisle to City Rhythm playing the instrumental version of Eminem's "Lose Yourself". It was an amazing crowd pleaser and one of the most memorable aspects of our wedding. City Rhythm completely nailed it and played beautifully! We had last minute changes to our first dance songs and groom/mother song. Last minute as in I called them 48 hours before to request the change. It required the band to learn 3 new songs, and we weren't sure if they'd be able to make it happen, but they totally did!! I cannot say enough great things about City Rhythm. If you choose them for your wedding, you do not need to worry at all about the music. They have it covered! They know what they're doing!
- Emily (Bride)
Pete, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you SO MUCH for making those last minute changes happen so easily and for making our wedding night an absolute blast!!!! So many compliments about City Rhythm!!! We love you!!!
- Emily and Angelo (Bride and Groom)
Gulph Mills Golf Club: Elizabeth and John Fegely – December 30, 2017
We had City Rhythm played at our wedding and they were fabulous! First off we had some snow the morning of our wedding and the band got to our venue early to be sure that they were ready to go! Very professional! We danced the night away. My friends and family are still talking about our big day and what fun it was!
- Elizabeth (Bride)
The Manor House at Commonwealth: Breen and Joe Whitelock – November 25, 2017
Loved it! Our wedding was over a month ago and people are still reaching out to tell us that it was one of the most fun weddings because of the band! Thank you!!

Hamilton Farm: Amy and Jonathan Shoemaker – November 4, 2017
City Rhythm was great! The dance floor was packed the entire time! I would recommend them in a heartbeat!
- Amy (Bride)
Please Touch Museum: Sally and Jonathan Mahady – October 14, 2017
City Rhythm was an incredible band and one we will recommend to anyone we know who needs a band for a special event. I am the fourth member of my family to have them play at the wedding and I think that says a lot about a band. They were a pleasure to work with and made everything very easy and not something i had to worry about.
- Jon (Groom)
The Horticultural Center: Dorie and Michael Friedman – October 8, 2017
It's been almost a month and friends are still talking about our wedding! Despite our guests' large age range City Rhythm accommodated everyone's musical taste and drew everyone onto the dance floor. In addition to the versatility of the band they were flexible with my requests...A family member composed the music for the wedding ceremony processional and had questions about instruments. Pete, the bandleader made himself available to work with her and exhibited a true depth of musical knowledge. The members of the band truly seemed to enjoy entertaining and while maintaining the elegant flavor of the event kept it warm and homey. I have nothing but high praise and gratitude for City Rhythm!
- Beverly (Mother of the Bride)
Philadelphia Country Club – Holly and Scott Mardis – September 30, 2017
We had City Rhythm at our wedding this past month and wow, they did not disappoint. They are so professional and know how to get a crowd on the dance floor for the entire night. We can't thank them enough to have helped to make our wedding such an amazing special day.
- Holly (Bride)
Congress Hall: Jennifer and Paul Cordaro – September 23, 2017
City Rhythm was absolutely amazing and made my wedding reception an incredibly fun time!! After dinner, no one sat down as they were all dancing. Gilbert did a DJ set in the middle when the band took a short break - his set was awesome and got everyone on their feet! Thanks again, great job!!
- Jen (Bride)
The Ballroom at the Ben: Danielle and Nick Muzzillo – September 16, 2017
City Rythm Orchestra was amazing, they had everyone on the dance floor all night long! Would highly recommend them for any event !!
- Danielle (Bride)
The Farm: Julia and Dave Page – September 9th, 2017
We had City Rhythm play our wedding this Fall, and they were everything we could have asked for and more. Pete and his guys were extremely helpful and accommodating in the lead-up to the wedding, and how amazing the band was is the most common feedback we've gotten on our Big Day! They did a great job keeping everyone up and energized from start to finish, and the sound is unreal! We were fortunate to have gotten a big dance floor, and if you go with City Rhythm, you'll need the extra space!
- Dave (Groom)
The Ballroom at the Ben: Lauren and Scott Solyak – September 9, 2017
To the Team at BVT,
Words cannot describe how thankful we were to have been able to meet Kurt and attend the showcase in Ardmore. We knew immediately that BVT was the choice for us. The decision did not come easy - they were all fantastic!!! After much thought, we selected “ALL ABOUT ME”! And, did they deliver! It was a magical evening filled with a fabulous performance by Michael and his entire team. The dance floor was packed all night long! They are truly amazing musicians.
With BVT, Allure Films, Philip Gabriel Photography and All About Events we had the perfect team. It still brings tears to my eyes when I watch the video that captured a picture perfect day!
A great big thank you to BVT and All About Me!!!
- Lauren and Scott
City Rhythm is an outstanding band with amazing musicians and singers. If you want an epic experience for yourselves and your wedding guests book this band NOW! The vocalists and band leaders are excellent. They offer a significant play list and will work with you on your special requests. The kindness and flexibility they showed for the challenges of a special moment with my 93 year old father will be one of my most valued memories. City Rhythm are true professionals; our guests went out of their way to tell us how great the band was. We can't be more thankful and we highly recommend them. The truth is they rocked our wedding!
- Teresa Andris & Jon Machmuller
City Rhythm rocked our wedding! They were so much fun and I've lost track of how many of our guests have given us unsolicited feedback about how much fun they had dancing to the music and how great the band was. They had everyone up on the dance floor and having a blast from start to finish. On top of the actual wedding day experience, they were a pleasure to work with leading up to the event. Anyone who has planned a wedding knows how important this is. There are so many things going on, but we knew that the band was one thing we absolutely didn't have to worry about. Pete was professional, responsive, overall great to work with. Leading up to the event City Rhythm had our full trust that the party would be a big hit, and it definitely was. We are so happy that we chose City Rhythm to perform at our wedding and would definitely recommend them to anyone for any event without a doubt. Thanks again City Rhythm, we're still sore how hard we danced all night!
