City Rhythm Band: Live Wedding Band in Philadelphia

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!

Springton Manor Farm: Lauren and Gary Brozna – August 20, 2016

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!

Hotel Monaco: Fay and David Dee – May 7, 2016

Fay and I just returned from our honeymoon. I want to thank you and your entire band for the amazing job that you did for our wedding. I know you are all professionals, but your passion really comes through. I think every single guest told me you were the best band they have ever heard at a function and I could not agree more. Thanks for learning Fay’s favorite Meghan Trainer song.  

Again we cannot say enough how absolutely thrilled we were with the entire day and the band made it that much more special. 

Best,

David

Pete and the team from City Rhythm went out of their way to make our day special. We made it known that we had a lively crowd and wanted people up and dancing and they totally delivered. I had people come up to me after the wedding to tell me they would’ve paid to see this band in concert! They were first rate in every way and I would recommend them to anyone.

"Pete and City Rhythm were AMAZING!!! People were stopping all night to let us know that the band was awesome and "this is the best wedding ever". The band was willing to learn our first dance song, and other songs. They were also very accommodating by playing during our ceremony and singing the songs that I wanted sung and keeping the rest instrumental. I can not thank Pete and the band enough for making our wedding day truly amazing. They went above and beyond! You will not regret booking them for your very own special day."

World Cafe Live: Emily Cofsky & Zach Matthews Wedding – October 11, 2014 – Bride

"City Rhythm was absolutely AMAZING! Pete was great to work with pre-wedding discussing the flow of the evening and the band was on point during the event, reading the crowd and playing exactly what was needed at that time. City Rhythm made our wedding a party and they were beyond what we could have ever expected they would be. We continue to get compliments on how great the band was, I cannot imagine a better band. I hope I get to see them at another event soon!" - Emily, Bride

Philadelphia Cricket Club: Catherine Pappas & William Marks Wedding – October 18, 2014

“BVTLive! was great. We had City Rhythm as the band for our wedding. My parents had gone to the showcase and booked them on the spot without consulting us (my husband and I live out on the West Coast so had to rely on local eyes and ears for a lot of the planning). My parents promised that we would be happy, but we were a bit skeptical having not gone to see them ourselves. Let me just say, any YouTube clips do not do this band justice. They were FANTASTIC. I told the bandleader that I wanted the wedding to be a huge dance party that left my guests sore for days. And let me tell you, the party just didn't stop. My wedding was about 60% people in their 20s/30s and 40% "old timers". Everyone was on the dance floor all night long. I got texts the next day saying that the band was great and that they couldn't remember when they had danced so much or had so much fun at a wedding. The band played a nice mix of big band swing, old standards, motown and some modern day hits. It was just the mix we were looking for. I would recommend this band 1000 times over. Thank you so much for making my wedding better than I could have imagined!”

- Catherine, Bride

World Cafe Live: Emily Cofsky & Zach Matthews Wedding – October 11, 2014 – Mother of the Bride

"I have attended many weddings and this was by far the very best band. Everyone enjoyed the music and the dance floor was crowded from the beginning of the evening to the end." - Marge, Mother of the Bride

Ballroom at the Ben: Marlo Bruno & Jeremy Doucette Wedding – September 20, 2014 – Bride

Phoenixville Foundry: Courtney Martin & Scott Plasky Wedding – September 12, 2014

We had City rhythm Band for our wedding on Sept. 12 2014 at the Phoenixville Foundry. I cannot say enough about this Band. The band leader Pete was a pleasure to work with. Curt at BVTLive! made the experience so easy. They learned our song for our wedding and performed it was perfect. They also played during our ceremony and cocktail hour. They had the dance floor packed all night. They made our wedding so memorable and special. They were able to play a wide variety of music and all the current hit songs. Every guess at our wedding raved about the band and expressed what a great time they had on the dance floor. And cannot thank them enough for what they added to our very special day. Thank you City Rhythm and BVTLive!!!!

Rivercrest: Whitney Roberts & Albert Sardella Wedding: June 7, 2014 – Mother of the Groom

City Rhythm was the perfect band for our son and daughter in law's wedding reception. They provided such a wide variety of music starting with some nice piano and saxophone for the cocktail hour and then moving up to the full 12 piece band that kept the evening flowing from dinner through the last dance, which seemed like it came around way too quickly!

The band leader, Pete Spina was great to work with and was so accommodating, allowing us to bring in a guest singer for our mother-son dance and learning a special song request for my husband. Its not easy to satisfy everyone's musical tastes, but City Rhythm kept everyone happy and on the dance floor all night. i can't say enough good things about them!

Rivercrest: Whitney Roberts & Albert Sardella Wedding: June 7, 2014

From our first contact at the band showcase through the wedding day, BVTLive! was great to work with. Our consultant, Billy Handy was wonderful and he found the perfect band for our son's wedding. City Rhythm was amazing and they kept everyone out on the dance floor the whole evening! We received so many compliments about the music. If you want to be able to relax at your event and know that your music entertainment will be in good hands, I highly recommend BVT.

Tavistock Country Club: Di Bartolo & Bittner Wedding: June 27, 2014

I just want to tell you how wonderful the city rhythm band made our son's wedding, it was the greatest time. People were asking us where we got such a great band in this day and age. My husband and I can't thank them enough for a job well done!

The Phoenixville Foundry: Conner-Kirkpatrick Wedding- January 19, 2014

I cannot begin to count the number of guests who told us how much they loved City Rhythm. They were phenomenal.

Appleford Estate – Zinno-Moro Wedding: October 19, 2013

I've known Pete Spina and City Rhythm for many years and I would have chosen no other band for our wedding reception. They provided beautiful classical music for our outdoor ceremony; sophisticated jazz for the cocktail hour; and an astute blend of dance music throughout the evening. Being a lifelong disciple of Frank Sinatra, I knew we were in for a great experience when the band kicked into "Small Hotel" for the first song of the night -- one of my favorites.

A great band needs a great bandleader who knows how to call tunes and accommodate the client, and Pete was first-class from start to finish. We had a very personalized feel in mind for the evening and our guests were thrilled because Pete knew how to read the crowd and hit the mark. To say I'd recommend the band would be a vast understatement.

My thanks to Pete and City Rhythm for a truly wonderful evening.

The Atrium at the Curtis Center: Schoeninger-DiDonato Wedding – November 23, 2013

City Rhythm played for our daughter's wedding, and our guests had an awesome time! They played a great variety of music that everyone enjoyed, and they are all highly talented musicians.
Even the bride's 99 year old grandmother was on the dance floor!
