Cescaphe Ballroom: Katrina and Patrick Adams – October 28, 2022

BVT and Elevation were a difference-maker for our special day! From the get-go, a wedding band was a priority for our wedding, and we could not be happier with the result. BVT was extremely communicative during the early stages and understood what we were looking for in a band. It was also extremely helpful that they invited us to attend a showcase of several of the different bands they represent, which is where we fell in love with Elevation. Elevation did a wonderful job helping us understand their vision of the flow of the evening and how that matched with our expectations. They gave us room to run with our own song preferences, as well as providing their own blend to fill the gaps. The music choices were perfect for the different age groups and and incorporated everything we could have asked for and more. Elevation was certainly a focal point of the wedding, and we have received so many compliments from our guests who were seriously so impressed. Thank you so much, Elevation. We will never forget how you BROUGHT IT on our special day!!!

Terrain Gardens at Devon Yard: Erika and Brent Smith – October 14, 2022

The Band Made Our Wedding(s) Great! I have 3 children, I had 3 weddings, I used BVTLive Bands 3 times...and I am so glad that I did. The band makes the wedding and they did a fabulous performance. Highly recommend them...call Paul Sotile to book your next band!

Ballroom at Ellis Preserve: Chelsea and Brett Riley – October 2, 2022

Elevation was truly wonderful! They were so much fun and I received such great feedback from our guests. I'd recommend them to anyone who likes to get up and dance!

The Union League of Philadelphia: Kelly and Kevin Rom – September 3, 2022

Our guests won't stop raving!!! Elevation is THE BAND for your wedding! They have incredible range, they play everything from the Beatles and Bruce to Blink-182 and Lizzo. We knew it was going to be an incredible night when during dinner they played Dream On by Aerosmith and I thought Christina was actually Steven Tyler for the high parts!!!! Everyone was extremely professional, on time, etc. I would recommend Elevation to anyone looking for an unforgettable wedding band.

Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club: Madison and Brooks Foster – July 16, 2022

Best band ever! Elevation was such a HUGE reason why our wedding was as special as it was. They are incredibly talented, but are also incredibly fun and engaged the entire room. In our planning discussions, we asked the band to play our alma mater's fight song (played by an entire marching band) so we fully expected to them to just play a YouTube clip during the reception. We were so blown away when they actually learned how to play it -- and did it flawlessly!

Our wedding was now over a month ago and people will not stop talking about how great the band was. At the end of the night, the crowd was cheering "one more song" as it truly felt like we were at a concert / party we never wanted to end! Aside from being incredibly talented, the band as well as BVT were a pleasure to work with and were responsive and professional throughout the entire process. Thank you BVT and Elevation - our day would not have been as fun without you!!!

Stone Tower Winery: Laura and Jawad Alharmoosh – July 15, 2022   

Elevation Band was so much fun! Elevation Band played at our wedding and they were so much fun! BVT was easy to work with from the moment we reached out and Christina from elevation was so helpful and organized during our planning call. The band was so great and knew exactly when to slow down the music or pump it up throughout the night. All of our friends told us how much fun they had with the band!

- Laura (Bride)

Annapolis, Maryland: Natalie and Shane Malenfant – June 18, 2022

Elevation absolutely rocks! Everything about this experience was amazing! Working with the team and the coordination of the evening was very easy and they knew EXACTLY what they were doing. We had a backyard wedding and they were both flexible and professional in what they needed and working with our vendors. Most importantly, they were absolutely incredible musicians and artists and everything from the dinner music to the dance floor was absolutely incredible! Can't recommend them enough.

- Natalie (Bride)

 

The Down Town Club: Sarah and Kyle Wilkinson – June 11, 2022

Incredible!! Hire them!! I cannot say enough good things about Elevation for our wedding! They were a total blast and kept everyone dancing the entire night! SOO MUCH FUN!!! Plus, they accommodated all of our song requests, and played EVERYTHING we asked for (and then some!) They made the process so easy, were super communicative and we went into our wedding day with total confidence in them. 5/5 stars and if we had to do it all over again, we'd choose them over and over!

- Sarah (Bride)

Hotel Monaco: Laura and Gilbert Cosnett – June 10, 2022 

We had the band Elevation for my daughter's wedding at the Hotel Monaco in June. They didn't disappoint at all. Everyone had a great time and were dancing to great songs all night long. They allowed my daughter to pick lots of favorite songs and even learned a new one for their first dance. If they are available, book them, it will be the icing on the cake for your event.

- Pamela (Mother of the Bride)

Cameron Estate Inn: Alexis and Pat Cassidy – May 28, 2022

Best Night Ever Thanks to the Best Wedding Band Ever! My wife and I first heard Elevation (formerly All About Me) at my cousin's wedding in May of 2019, and we knew immediately that they would be the band to play our wedding someday. Not only were our expectations met -- they were shattered. The band provided our special day with incredible musicianship, unforgettable energy, and an unmatched joy that I have never before experienced at a wedding. I cannot say enough good things about Christina, Megan, Mike, their phenomenal sound engineer, and everybody else involved in the band. Any couple would be extremely lucky to have them play at their wedding. Thank you, Elevation, for truly making our wedding a celebration!

The Boathouse at Mercer Lake: Lauren and Michael Turpan – May 7, 2022

I don’t have a single bad word to say about BVT Live or Elevation. We had reached out to BVT after seeing one of their other bands at a friends wedding. Kurt got in touch with us within the hour, and while the band we had seen wasn’t available he was able to direct us to Elevation. They were slightly out of our budget but they were able to make it work. When it came to planning the reception, Mike and Christina could not have been easier to work with. They learned our first dance song and even a few others that we wanted to hear throughout the night. All in all, the one thing people keep mentioning to us months after our wedding day is that our band was awesome and kept the party going all night! I could not recommend them enough

- Michael (Groom)

The Boathouse at Mercer Lake: Lauren & Michael Turpan – May 7, 2022

I just wanted to sing Elevation’s praises after our weekend this weekend. Christina was awesome to work with and their music blew our expectations out of the water. We haven’t stopped getting messages about how great they were. Thanks for all of your help, I’ll refer Elevation and BVTLive! to anyone who’ll listen to me!

- Michael (Groom)

Hotel du Pont: Cathy and Brendan Meighan – February 12, 2022

BVTLive! provided excellent service and their showcase of bands was a wonderful opportunity to view and assess all of our options. We ultimately chose Elevation, who put on an amazing show and had all of our guests up on their feet dancing!

- Brendan (Groom)

Fame: Keelin and Tyler Austin – December 31, 2021

Incredible Sound and FUN! Elevation was the absolute best band we could have asked for on our wedding day! They nailed every song, even the ones we asked them to learn for us, and created the most fun atmosphere. We've been getting compliments from our guests nonstop.

- Keelin (Bride)

Renault Winery: Amanda and Andrew Smyth – December 17, 2021

Elevation Band, you rock! BVTLive! was so great to work with, we were able to watch a virtual showcase of outstanding bands before we picked Elevation Band to perform at our wedding! They were such a blast and we had the best time ever!! Everyone is still talking about how amazing they were. Truly phenomenal! We highly recommend having Elevation Band perform at your wedding, they will not disappoint!!! We can’t thank them enough for making our night unforgettable!

- Amanda (Bride)

Metropolitan Club of Washington: Branda and Paul Mandelson – November 13, 2021

Maybe the Best Wedding Band Ever! We chose Elevation to play our wedding after we heard them during another wedding in Lancaster, PA. They were better than we even remembered and exceeded all of our expectations (which were very high). Everyone who told us that our wedding was amazing cited the band. One my parents friends (70ish) called it the "wedding of the century" because of the band, even when they played Lizzo, House of Pain, and N'sync!

We had a discussion with them ahead of time about songs we wanted played, but they knew the songs to play and when to play them to get and keep the people on the dance floor. Amazing vocals, and the horn section was out of this world. They learned 3 very different songs for us, and they were all great.

If you're lucky enough to have a wedding on a date when they're not booked you MUST book this band! It's the best decision of the wedding outside of saying, "I do."

- Paul (Groom)

Franklin Commons: Kayte and Emily Roberts – October 16, 2021

Elevation band is AMAZING! My wife and I got married on 10/16/2021 and We had Elevation as our band—they were INCREDIBLE. We have guests still talking about how fun and amazing they were! People were dancing (including myself) nonstop. They even learned 3 new songs for us! If we had questions prior to our big day or wanted to check in, they were so fast to respond. BVTLive!! we incredible to work with from the beginning, always so responsive, professional and helpful. If you’re thinking about hiring them, DO IT!

- Kayte (Bride)

Sunnybrook Ballroom: Brittany and John Candelore – September 17, 2021

Elevation was everything we wanted and more! Getting married during a pandemic is very stressful! The band was patient, kind, and flexible during the planning process. They supported us every step of the way. Every question, call, song request, etc was answered in a timely matter and sang beautifully. Our families are big dancers and Elevation had our guests dancing the whole night long. Every song that we requested they played it. Elevation was everything we envisioned. Our bridal party, families, and wedding guests were talking about how amazing the band was and continue to talk about them. If any of you are reading this and thinking about booking the band Elevation for your special event DO IT! You will not regret it!! Thank you thank you thank you for being apart of our special day!

- Brittany (Bride)

Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club: Maura and Nick Procelli – August 1, 2021

Guest could not stop talking about how great the band was! I am so happy we hired BVTLive! Elevation for our wedding! During the booking/planning process Mike was so easy to work and communicate with. Christina met with us prior to our wedding and answered all my questions and nailed my requests. WOW the band exceeded my expectations at our wedding. Our first dance song and dances with our parents sounded amazing if not better than the original song. Every guest was up on the dance floor dancing to every song from start to finish! I also liked how they knew how to flow with the schedule of the reception (toasts, eating, etc.) Our guests could not stop talking about how amazing the band was and our engaged friends hinted that we will be seeing this band again at their wedding!

- Maura (Bride)

Aronimink Golf Club: Bridget and Joshua Cordray – May 1, 2021

Elevation was one of the best parts of our wedding night. No one stopped dancing!! They were absolutely incredible. Christina took a quick call with us before the wedding and went over all the details and discussed songs. They played everything we wanted and played it fabulously. Highly recommend Elevation for your wedding!!!

- Bridget (Bride) 

Ballroom at Ellis Preserve: Alexis and Mike McCandless – December 31, 2019

Wouldn't have been the same without!!!! Our wedding was New Year's Eve and All About Me was excellent. People talked about them for days! I can't thank them enough for truly making our wedding so memorable!

- Alexis (Bride)

Scranton Cultural Center: Michael & Caroline Zielinski – November 16, 2019

All About Me band is THE BEST EVER!!!

Where do I start?!? I will be honest, I was so nervous getting a band because I really wanted everything to be upbeat and fun and have some oldies but also newer songs as well. My expectations were more than exceeded. Everyone I have talked to about the wedding has said, “And how about that band?! They were AMAZING!” And they truly were. My only wish was that my wedding was hours longer so they could have played longer. Best money ever spent!!! They learned songs that weren’t on our list for us, they played our “must haves” and didn’t play anything we didn’t want. So nice to work with and unbelievable talent. So happy we chose All About Me. Bill at BVTlive was also so helpful and always got back to us in a timely fashion to answer any questions we had. Such a great experience overall.

- Caroline (Bride)

- Deb (Mother of the Bride)

Stonewall: Elizabeth and Max Thiel – November 9, 2018

So glad we chose the All About Me band for our wedding. So good!!!

We were SO happy with the All About Me band! Our family and friends couldn't stop talking about them! Everyone was out on the dance floor the whole time. They made our wedding such a memorable one and we will be recommending them to others!

- Elizabeth (Bride)

The Horticultural Center: Mollie & Weston Helms – October 5, 2019

All About Me was our wedding highlight!!

We booked All About Me, sight unheard, and it was the best decision we could have made for our wedding. They had our dance floor packed the entire night. Christina and Mike were great to work with leading up to the wedding. Christina immediately got the song vibe we were going for and created a wedding set list for the ages. The band also executed our first dance and parent dance songs flawlessly. Our friends and family are still talking about how they have never danced that much at a wedding before. Thank you for being part of making the night so magical for us!

- Mollie (Bride)

American Swedish History Museum: Lindsey and Marcus – July 13, 2019

We wanted to just express our biggest thank you again to the whole band and team for an absolutely amazing experience on Saturday! There was not one single guest who didn't absolutely gush to us about how supremely talented each and every one of you are, including, and I quote from a guest "If I had been facing the other way, I could've sworn Jackson 5 was back." And people did not just comment that their experience was a great one, they all had extremely specific praises to sing, including pointing out certain songs and performances (Uptown Funk, to name just one) that stuck in the memories of all, even the guests who had more than a few cocktails 😉
You guys made our whole event so smooth, I knew I had nothing to worry about throughout the ceremony and cocktail hour, and I can't even imagine our reception without the indescribably amazing dance sets!
So although I feel like a simple phrase can't fully sum up our gratitude, thank you, again!
