The best band ever!! BVTLive! was so great to work with! We hired City Rhythm for our October 2023 wedding, and they were hands down one of the best investments that we made! The team of musicians and support are absolutely incredible and exceptionally talented. They made planning really easy and stress-free, and the night of, they had every single person out on the dance floor from start to end. They brought so much energy and fun! Highly recommend on all fronts!!

On behalf of Andrew and our families, I just wanted to express our gratitude and appreciation for you and the whole City Rhythm band and team. You all are absolute rock stars in every sense, and truly helped to make 10.7.23 feel like a dream. We are still struggling to find the words to express how incredible the day was, but know that it would not have been as amazing if we didn't have you all leading the party - It was the absolute best celebration!!

Thank you for bringing the energy and sharing your talents with us - people still cannot stop talking about how excellent you all were.

Hotel Bethlehem: Yanan and Yako Wijnands, July 23, 2023

We had the most amazing experience having City Rhythm play at our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. They were absolutely fabulous and made our wedding a memorable and incredibly fun evening for all. We hired the full 11 piece band and they were phenomenal. They have an amazingly wide repertoire, featuring 4 vocalists and playing a variety of music from Sinatra classics, jazz, rock, pop and blues. They sounded fantastic and they created a real party atmosphere getting everyone onto the dance floor making it an epic night.
It was great to be able to see the band in action beforehand at one of the BVT live showcase events and get to know the band leader Pete and his musicians. That gave us confidence we had hired the right band. The whole planning process run by BVT was smooth and efficient and on the day of the event ran perfectly. We are very grateful to all in City Rhythm to help make our special day perfect. We could not have picked a better band. Thank you City Rhythm!!

The Royalton on the Green: Elizabeth and James Deck, June 16, 2023

Both BVT management and the City Rhythm band were active and responsive from our first contact. Our decision process consisted of hearing them perform live (awesome) and speaking with them in person and by phone. They were very professional and enthusiastic about how to make our wedding reception special and, boy, did they deliver on that special night! Despite playing a little far from home and in a venue they had never seen before, they had everyone up and on the dance floor from the very first song. They stuck the perfect balance between classy MC and phenomenal musicianship. We received numerous compliments on the band both during and long after the event. Hire them - you'll be glad you did.

The Crystal Tea Room: Mary Kate and Kishan Patel, July 1, 2023

On behalf of myself and Mary Kate we want to thank you and the entire band from the bottom of our hearts for making Saturday the best night of our lives! I can’t tell you how many people came up to us and told us how good you all were and how much fun they had. And thank you for rolling with the flow during the Indian ceremony.

We are so honored and grateful to have had you all keep the partying go all night! Please let us know if there is anything you need from us or anything we can do to let everyone know how special the band is, we’d be more than happy to do anything.

Thank you again so so much! Cheers!

Bluestone Country Club: Leah and Robert Goldberg – December 11, 2022

We heard this band at a friend's wedding and absolutely loved them. Booking and payment were both online and very easy to complete. The band had an expansive repertoire and still took our requests. They played everything we wanted and nothing we didn't. The band leader was incredibly responsive via email and walked through all of our entertainment needs step by step. On the day of the wedding, all of our guests raved about the band, including two guests who are professional musicians themselves. I would recommend this band to anyone who wants an energetic, engaging, and fun band for their wedding.

Drumore Estate: Madalyn and Zachary Polites – September 3, 2022

The variety of music was great plenty of good music for the young and old. The Sinatra selections were amazing. We loved the processional ensembles prior and during the ceremony and during the cocktail hour. The band kept things moving along during the reception and engaged the guests. I would definitely recommend and hire the band again. Thank you for making our daughter's day and a wonderful experience.

Hilton Penns Landing: Rebecca and Josh Minardi – May 29, 2022

City Rhythm made our wedding!! After one conversation with Pete, the band leader, we felt completely understood and had an idea of how the entire wedding reception would go- and it went that way the day of. Each vocalist and musician brings something authentically their own and also fits perfectly into the group dynamic! It’s beautiful to see and hear.

- Rebecca (Bride) 

The Phoenixville Foundry: Cassidy and TJ Young – September 25, 2021

City Rhythm was absolutely incredible! We had the pleasure of having them perform our ceremony and reception music in September. Not only do they have amazing talent from vocals to instrumentals, but they were fun and kept all of our guests on the dance floor. Booking was easy as well - Paul answered all questions that we had and made great suggestions when we weren't sure what we wanted. They have a huge song list AND can learn new songs as well. They even learned a grateful dead song for my father daughter dance and did an amazing job. I highly suggest hiring City Rhythm for your wedding - you wont be disappointed!

Greenville Country Club: Julie and Nicholas Vukmer – September 24, 2021

Amazing band! City Rhythm was exceptional! We danced to Frank Sinatra for our first dance and thought it was a recording of Frank it was so good. They played everything we wanted them to, and nothing we didn't want. The dance floor was packed the ENTIRE night! Definitely recommend!
- Julie (Bride)

The Union League of Philadelphia: Molly and Dante Cutrona – September 5, 2021

City Rhythm was absolutely unreal! One of my wedding guests shared with us that now they knew the difference between a wedding band and a good wedding band. Can't recommend them enough.

- Molly (Bride)

The Merion: Alexa and Dante Oriente – July 31, 2021

- Alexa (Bride)

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!

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!

- Craig (The Golden Glow of Christmas Past)

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.
