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 BVT to anyone who’ll listen to me!

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

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."

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. BVT Live! we incredible to work with from the beginning, always so responsive, professional and helpful. If you’re thinking about hiring them, DO IT!

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!

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 BVT 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)
All About Me was great !!! The best music, kept the crowd dancing and very accommodating!
My daughter’s wedding was fantastic thanks to this great band !! They sounded like the actual artists. We danced until the last dance !!
- 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!
Lindsey & Marcus (Bride & Groom)
Excelsior Hall: Kaitlyn and Patrick Woods – June 28, 2019
Best wedding with the best band. We are just recently married at Excelsior in Lancaster City! We chose All About Me and could not have been more thrilled!! Working in the wedding industry I have heard over 100 bands play and NO BAND tops All About Me! They were so easy to work with and even learned new songs to accommodate our crowd and likes. Look NO further!! This band will have every guest up and on the dance floor the entire evening!!
- Kaitlyn (Bride)
The Westin Governor Morris: Jill and Andrew Moghadam – June 23, 2019
We loved All About Me! We hired All About Me for our wedding June 23rd after seeing them at a wedding band showcase in Ardmore. Hiring them was the best decision we made for our wedding reception. They had the dance floor packed all night! Their energy was infectious, they kept the party going all night. Christina was so easy to work with, and she has a killer voice. I will recommend All About Me to anyone looking for an amazing wedding band!
- Jill (Bride)
Cescaphe Ballroom: Cara and Ryan Bindrim – December 22, 2018
Thank you so much for making our wedding night absolutely amazing!! Ryan and I loved every second, the song choice, the energy, congo line!! You guys really killed it!! Please pass along our thanks, and have a happy and healthy New Year!!

William Penn Inn: Josey and Michael Frost – November 17, 2018
All About Me at our Wedding!
For our wedding, All About Me played the reception and it was everything that my wife and I could have wanted and more. The band is made up of some of the best musicians in the Philly area. Their professionalism, communication, and musicianship kept our guests celebrating the night away on the dance floor! If you are looking for a top tier band for any event, I would highly recommend All About Me to bring your event to the next level. Their booking agent, BVT Live, was super easy to work with. We are still receiving complements from guests wanting to know how we found such an incredible band! They were truly an integral part to making our special night so unforgettable!
- Michael (Groom)
Front and Palmer: Anna and Jeff Ellis – November 3, 2018
We had BVT's All About Me play during our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. From the initial outreach to the week before our big day, communication was top notch from staff and band members. The showcases were professionally run and really helped narrow down options. We had a somewhat specific vision (having met in New Orleans and wanting to incorporate some NOLA flavor in to our night) and a few specific song requests and they really understood and came through with all that we discussed. The dance floor was packed all night and guests are still raving about our wedding music! We highly recommend All About Me and will keep them in mind for future events.
- Anna (Bride)
French Creek Golf Club: Lauren and Kevin Johnson – October 14, 2018
All About Me got everyone on their feet! My parents and I made our band selection back in March for my wedding with my dad, the music buff, being the pickiest of our trio. Boy am I glad we waited to choose our band because All About Me did NOT disappoint. They had us from the beginning of their showcase and I knew they were the band for me as soon as I heard them sing my favorite Backstreet Boys song "Everybody". My mom and I were jumping up in our seats writing notes to my dad that we had to book them. When All About Me performed at my wedding reception they had everyone on their feet. I remember seeing a conga line with some of the brass players, which was a unique thing to see on the dance floor. All of the guests had a blast and told my husband and I how much they enjoyed the band. I would highly recommend All About Me for your special day!
- Kevin (Groom)
Hotel du Pont: Darlene and Don DeMichele – September 21, 2018
The band was absolutely fantastic! We had a wide range of ages at our wedding, early 20’s through the late 70’s and EVERYONE was on the dance floor. We received countless calls and messages from friends and family that it was the best wedding they had been to in ages!!! Trying to figure out how we can throw a great party and use them again. BVT was that good!!!
- Darlene (Bride)
The Downtown Club: Lauren and Andrew Albies – June 8, 2018
All About Me is a must! We booked All About Me as our band for our June 2018 wedding. Paul was super flexible in getting us booked at a price we felt comfortable with. We discussed everything with Christina about a month before (songs, scheduling, etc.). They’re super professional and work with all of the Philly venues which made planning on my part much easier. They stole the wedding! Everyone raved about the band and how they elevated our wedding. BOOK THEM NOW!
- Lauren (Bride)
Terrain: Erica and Robbie Toha – May 27, 2018
Went to a BVTLive band showcase and enjoyed every group. The showcase made it so easy to listen to several bands without traveling to different locations. They were all great but we ultimately selected All About Me for my daughter's wedding. The band was amazing. All of the wedding guests loved them and they really kept everyone on the dance floor. BVTLive was great to work with and made the process very easy.
- Susan (Mother of the Bride)
Thanks to BVTLive for making the process so easy. All About Me was fantastic! Everyone loved the music.
- Susan (Mother of the Bride)
The Horticultural Center: Molly and Adam Thal – May 26, 2018
All About Me was just amazing at my daughter's wedding on 5/26/18. Totally exceeded our expectation - totally worth every penny. They kept everyone on the dance floor and finished with a grand finale - horn players on the dance floor with the party. Everyone commented on how wonderful they were. Thanks for making it a great wedding celebration.
- Kate (Mother of the Bride)
The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm: Darian and Dr. George Michael Leader IV – May 19, 2018
We had such a blast with All About Me as our wedding band! Each member was super energetic and engaging and really got the crowd going!! They were very easy to work with and on top of everything from start to finish. Would definitely recommend if you have a group who likes to get nuts on the dance floor!
- Darian (Bride)
We chose All About Me because when we heard a few bands live, they stood out as the best by far. Not only were they excellent musicians, but they provided amazing entertainment and really interacted with everyone. I HIGHLY recommend them! The band makes the wedding, and they were absolutely perfect!
