Corinthian Yacht Club: Lisa and Alex Craft – October 22, 2016
Paul, it was incredible! The wind sucked but whatever. The band was freaking awesome. People are still talking about them. I have on my to-do list to write reviews on every single outlet because it was unreal!!!
The Contagious Party Band out of BVTLive was INCREDIBLE. After seeing them perform a showcase there was no question we needed them for our wedding reception. Walt is so laid back it helps ease the stress of wedding planning, and Paul is available at every turn to coordinate. Our dance floor was packed all night long. People have not stopped commenting how much fun our wedding was, and I owe it in part to having such an amazing band. My father wanted to play guitar during our first dance, and the band was completely open to it - they even invited him to a rehearsal so they could work it all out. They have a great grasp on all genres of music, old and new - and I am still just so thrilled at how well it worked out!

Vie: Hilton-Brown Wedding – August 1, 2015
Thank you for the amazing music, dance moves, and energy on August 1st! Everyone is still talking about you all. Music is a BIG part of any wedding and you definitely played your part. We have to personally thank you all again for our first dance- Adorn by Miguel. If only I could dance with my husband everyday to that. It was amazing and you certainly killed it!"

College of Physicians: Rozera-Knapp Wedding – October 31, 2015
"Contagious was absolutely phenomenal in their musicianship, energy and appearance/optics. The "announcing" was just perfect and not too intrusive, but very friendly and helpful. Their timing was perfect with the variety of music... but funky numbers are what really delighted all guests...and there was non-stop dancing. We also really loved the line-dancing instruction near the end with the ladies and gentlemen's numbers and the way the singers and players invited us to be a part of the performance. Contagious made it a spectacular party. Thank you, thank you!"

Swarthmore College: Welsh-Bostick Wedding – October 10, 2015
Suzanne, Mary, and I wanted to say thank you to you and Contagious for the concert at our wedding this past Saturday. In all respects, we thought the event was a smashing success. We have spent the past few days reminiscing about the many highlights of the night. What we kept coming back to was how impressed we were with the band's ability to draw the crowd out and keep the energy level high. You all have a real gift, and many of our family and friends said this was hands-down the best reception they ever attended. I agree! We really cannot say thank you enough for making this a memorable wedding. Best of luck, health, and happiness to you all.
The Mendenhall Inn: Mulroy-Bergwall Wedding – August 8, 2015
"Dear Doc and all members of the Contagious Party Band,
This is Linda Mulroy writing - the mother of the bride for the Mulroy-Bergwall wedding. We can't begin to thank you enough for the outstanding performance you provided at our daughter's wedding. You went beyond our wildest expectations. From the time you began the introductions to the very last song you performed you had the whole audience captivated with your music and performance. The only people that weren't up on the dance floor were those that had recently had knee, hip or back surgery....LOL Even my 90 year old father and my 84 year old mother were up shakin' their booty!!! It's your performance that will stay in everyone's memory of what a great time was had at the Mulroy-Bergwall wedding!
So thank you from all us for providing such great memories of an unbelievable memorable evening."
The Marriott Downtown: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Lemon Ball: January 10, 2015
BVTLive! never disappoints us with truly amazing entertainment every year for our Lemon Ball gala. This past January they sent out “Contagious” to perform at the event. “Doc” the band leader got everyone on their feet and dancing! The bands professionalism really sets them apart, they were accommodating throughout the entire process. We love working with everyone and BVTLive! and look forward to continuing our relationship!

This is so very long overdue, but better late than never!! Words can't express our feelings of gratitude and thanks for playing such a huge role in our wedding day back in July. You truly set the tone of the entire evening. We still get chills remembering how much fun we had with you all that night.

Cira Center: Reiss-Fassanella Wedding – July 19, 2014
I knew when I saw the band Contagious at the showcase , they were the band for our daughter's wedding. They were high energy and sounded great together! Doc contacted us before the wedding and planned the music that would be pleasing to all ages.
Our guests, including myself, the mother of the bride, had a great time dancing all evening, until midnight! We had more compliments from the guests who loved the band! Thank you Doc and band members, you made our daughter's wedding a fabulous dance party enjoyed by all.
Congress Hall: Feinblatt-Waxman Wedding – July 7, 2014
We used the Contagious Party Band for our July wedding and we couldn't have been happier. They were amazing, they had the entire wedding up dancing the entire time, even before dinner! Our guests all commented that we had the best band they had ever seen. Working with Contagious was awesome too, they learned new songs for us and were totally accommodating to our wishes.
Couldn't be happier with our decision to use Contagious, they helped make our wedding day an amazing day we will remember forever!
Tendenza: Gillian and Scott Devoy Wedding – July 5, 2014
It wasn't a hard decision to book one of the BVT Bands for our wedding. The hardest part was deciding which one. After attending a showcase in which we were able to see samples of (4) bands performances, it was an easy decision to book Contagious. They are full of so much talent and energy that they even had my dance-shy father dancing in his seat. I knew from that moment that they were the band for us. And boy were we right! Our guests danced the night away and kept asking us where we found this band! They even took the time to learn our first dance and Mother-Groom dance songs as they weren't part of their repertoire. How awesome is that?! If you want to dance book BVT Contagious. They will make sure your guests are on the dance floor until after the lights come up! I highly recommend!!
Carriage House at Rockwood Park: Johnson-Quinn, May 17, 2014
We had Contagious perform at our wedding and we absolutely LOVED them - we actually stole them after our best friend's used them for their wedding. They were so great we had to have them and we don't regret copying at all! They really work the crowd getting everyone out on the dance floor and making sure everyone is having fun. They pull people on the stage; they welcome guest singers/dancers; players and they're so great at what they do that you can't help but dance. Working with band leader, Doc, is great because he makes sure he knows absolutely everything you want for the day. They're the best
The Down Town Club: Hughes-Fritz Wedding, January 4, 2014
We had Contagious for our wedding and were extremely happy with how entertaining the band made the night! From cocktail hour to the last song, the entire band was amazing. They also did an incredible job on our first dance. We received so many compliments from our guest on how great the band was. I would definitely recommend BVT and Contagious to my friends and family.
Mendenhall Inn: Huska-Funkhouser Wedding, November 2, 2013
Joe and I have arrived back in Florida and we are getting caught up from all of the wedding and honeymoon festivities. I just wanted to drop you a line and THANK YOU and the Contagious team for making our wedding so special. We had such a fantastic time and I was so happy to see the dance floor packed all throughout the evening. Our guests really enjoyed themselves and we have some great memories thank to the band. We loved every second of the evening and Contagious was a major part in making the night so special.

Curtis Center: Lauren & John Crilley Wedding – 8/23/13We had Contagious play at our wedding at the Curtis Center last month and they were wonderful! Doc was a pleasure to work with, super professional and helpful, leading up to the wedding. Everyone was up dancing the whole night at the reception. The majority of the complements from guests had to do with our choice of a band. Worth every penny!-Lauren Crilley
Blue Bell Country Club: Spector-Besmer, May 26, 2013

I have heard so many compliments from the guests on how you guys were the best wedding band they have ever heard, and what an amazing time they had! You guys really did make the night.

I think things went beautifully! Thank you and the rest of the band for making our day so much fun and so memorable. I knew immediately when I saw the clip of you guys at Brandywine Valley Talent, that you were the only choice for our wedding. You guys are incredibly talented and your passion for what you do is so obvious in your performance. For many reasons, it was the best night of my life.
Thanks again for everything!!
