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)

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!!!

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!

The Manor House at Commonwealth: Breen and Joe Whitelock – November 25, 2017

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!

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 !!

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!

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 BVTLive! 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 BVTLive! and All About Me!!!
- Lauren and Scott
Artesano Iron Works: Ava and Matthew Aquilino – August 19, 2017
We could not be happier with our decision to use BVTLive!'s City Rhythm. City Rhythm completely transformed our wedding into an incredible party that our guests are still talking about. Not only were they able to play every song we requested but they brought an energy to the wedding that had every one out of their seats. I highly suggest using them for any event!

Ballroom at The Ben: Elizabeth and Kevin Mallon – July 15, 2017
We had City Rhythm play at our wedding and we're beyond happy! My husband and I live out of state so never heard the band play live, my parents helped to select the band and they were everything we wanted and more. They played a wide variety of music and took our requests into consideration. The band had everyone up and dancing the entire night from the minute the reception started. Thank you City Rhythm for helping to make our wedding an unforgettable night!
- Elizabeth (Bride)
Please Touch Museum: Leana and Adam Oppenheim – May 6, 2017
Music is very important to us , so we went to many show cases before picking city rhythm . We were blown away! They sound much better live then what is shown on the website. We received many compliments on the band!! City rhythm has vocalist that encompass all genres. Their playlist is enormous. They will learn any song you choose for intro song, first dance and mother / groom song etc. The band leader was very helpful and responsive. You can't go wrong by picking this 5 star band!!!

Ohev Shalom of Bucks County: Stephanie and Barry Edwards – March 26, 2017
We had the BEST time at our wedding thanks to Pete and the whole City Rhythm band. We looked at A LOT of bands, and the minute we heard City Rhythm, we knew it was our band. They were easy to work with and a great value compared to many others that we looked at. My husband and I had a vision for how we wanted to enter the room to get the whole wedding party up and dancing. We talked to Pete the week before and everything went off without a hitch. I can't say enough about how great the music was and our guests had a blast and were up and dancing the whole time....even the catering waitstaff were dancing in the aisles as they served the tables and remarked that it was one of the best band performances that they've seen.

Crystal Tea Room: Corporate Party – March 9, 2017
I wanted to reach out and Thank You and The City Rhythm Orchestra in making our Celebration a memorable event for our employees. The feedback from everyone has been great and much emphasis was on how Awesome the Band was!
When we started to work with Jeff in the beginning stages of the planning, I saw City Rhythm Orchestra and I told Colleen (my Boss) no worries, they will make this a great time!! She kept saying how fabulous you all were and wants me to assure you of her highest recommendations and referrals for the Band.
I wanted to let you know what a huge part you all had in making this a Great Celebration and how much everyone enjoyed the music.
Again, Many Thanks for being part in making this a Wonderful Event!!

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!

Hotel Monaco: Samantha and Chandler Harris – September 23, 2016
We had City Rhythm at our wedding, and they were AMAZING! Pete (the bandleader) was wonderful to work with and was so accommodating with our special requests of the father / bride and mother/ groom dances! People were on the dance floor the entire time and we could not have asked for a better performance. It was phenomenal!
City Rhythm MADE our event! City Rhythm made our daughter's wedding. Their versatility, excellence and energy carried the event. I am trying to figure out another way to have another event where they can be hired. I would love to recreate the magic!
