Elevation was the Best Band Ever! They were so great- we thought we were at their concert! They were so amazing and made the night so special for bride and groom and their guests. They were so engaging, they kept the guests on the dance floor all evening. They played a wide selection of music and everyone commented on their sound. Thank you BVTLive for making our event memorable.

Elevation made our wedding day a dream come true. We absolutely loved our band ! They were beyond talented. Music is EVERYTHING at a wedding. We received so many compliments!

Elevation was the BEST WEDDING BAND we could ask for!!! They had fabulous energy, great vocals, and worked with us to accommodate everything we wanted and more! They kept everyone on the dance floor all night! We got texts the entire week after our wedding asking about our band. Could not recommend them more!

Normandy Farms: Kelly and Steve Mahoney – May 5, 2023

We had a packed dance floor all night due to the band Elevation. They were great ! Everyone was asking how we found them so we told them BVT Live. They are a great way to find a band, they make it easy to choose the right one.

Park Chateau Estate: Lauren and Brandon Neyhart – April 28, 2023

Can't go wrong with BVTLive and Elevation!! BVTLive (Kurt) was tremendous and answered any and all questions I had. The band Elevation was outstanding. They played many of the songs we requested and learned a few others that weren't on their play list. Christina and Mike are so pleasant to work with and will answer all your questions. They are on top of everything!!

- David (Father of the Bride)

The Warwick: Olivia and Tim Haines – April 15, 2023

There are no words to express how phenomenal working with BVT was! From the start of the wedding process, they were informative and straightforward! We went with Elevation and it was the best wedding decision we ever made!! Our dance floor was packed the entire night (tables had to be moved for space!) Christina was fabulous to work with leading up to the wedding and throughout the reception getting things moving!!! The band was even fabulous when I may have thought I was a singer in the band.... and grabbed a microphone!!! They rolled with it seemlessly..... We received so many compliments about the band during and after the wedding!! I would 100% book Elevation over and over again!!

- Olivia (Bride)

Ballroom at Ellis Preserve: Alexis and Brenden McAlinney – April 1, 2023

Book the band!! I can’t not put into words how blown away we were with Elevation! Everyone at our wedding was in agreement that they made the night! The dance floor was packed the entire time.
BVT was great to work with. They are upfront with pricing and make finalizing the details extremely easy. The live shows are so much fun and make all the difference in checking a big “to do” item off your list. I had been speaking with another company about booking a band while also speaking with BVT, and the interactions with Justin and the rest of the BVT team is what ultimately lead me to booking with them regardless of the band we chose. A lot of vendors can make it feel like they are selling you on their product/service but with BVT I never felt pressured into making any decisions, and that made all the difference!
In the last few months/ weeks leading up to your wedding it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and in over your head with everything. I can honestly say that after the first song they played we felt we got the deal of a lifetime with Elevation! They are so extremely talented and take the time to make sure everything is just as you requested/discussed with the band leader prior to the event.

Aronimink Golf Club: Rachel and Michael McMullan – December 3, 2022

We could not have been happier with Elevation Band as our wedding band! They kept the party going the whole night and everyone had a blast. We have had SO MANY guests ask us for the band contact info, saying that they want the band for their own events. Seriously, we could not have asked for more!

- Rachel (Bride)

The Ballroom at the Ben: Sarah and Andrew Smith – November 6, 2022

Elevation was amazing! From the start, BVT Live was very communicative and we really enjoyed going to the showcases to see the bands. Choosing Elevation was such an easy decision as we loved their energy. They definitely did not disappoint. Elevation was AMAZING at our wedding. Everyone (especially me) had the best time dancing all night and people couldn't stop talking about how great they were after the wedding. They did such a wide variety of music, including our must plays, and did it all so well. They definitely brought me so much joy on my wedding day as choosing a great band was important to me. Thank you Elevation and BVT Live!

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!

- Joe (Father of the Bride)

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!

- Chelsea (Bride)

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.

- Kelly (Bride)

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!!!

- Madison (Bride)

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!
