The Logan Hotel: Jennifer and William Waggenspack – July 22, 2017

We booked ALL ABOUT ME for our July wedding. The booking process with BVTLive! was very easy - Bill was super responsive and laid out all of our options for who was available on our date. Others had recommended ALL ABOUT ME to us, so we watched all of their online videos and loved them. They did not disappoint - having a horn section in the band was important to us and they really played it up during their sets including going out on the dance floor & interacting with guests. We got so many compliments from our guests - they loved them! On the whole, the band was one of the more expensive items of the whole wedding budget, but definitely worth it if they're in your price range. Don't hesitate to pick them.

Shenorock Shore Club: Kathleen and Michael Caruana – July 15, 2017

All About Me was absolutely fantastic. The vocals were amazing and the flexibility of the lead members were exceptional. There was some confusion with the venue as to times of speeches and plates being down but the band was incredibly helpful rolling with the sudden changes and turning my frustrated frown upside down. The band truly kept the entire party moving up until their last note when the crowd was begging for more. Thank you again for making my wedding day so memorable!

- Kathleen (Bride)

The Union League of Philadelphia: Kaitlin and Mike Stallone – June 24, 2017

The band "All About Me" was amazing! So much energy and the skill of these artists is off the charts. Very interactive with the guests! All around a wonderful show!

I couldn't possibly ask for better- Thank you BVTLive! / Thank you All About Me Band!!!!

- Robert (Father of the Bride)

Aldie Mansion: Jamie and Tom Archibald – May 20, 2017

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!

- Jamie (Bride)

Pennsylvania Academy of fine Arts: Hannah and Scott Campion – January 21, 2017

BVTLive! was extremely helpful and professional. Once our other vendors heard we were using them, they all said, "Oh ok, it will all be easy then." Our band, All About Me, was absolutely outstanding. Really got the place rocking. We had them learn a few songs for us and the performance was stellar.

Philadelphia Cricket Club: Andrea and Josh Hanson – November 12, 2016

BVTLive! was so wonderful to work with! A great resource for all your music entertainment needs. Bill Handy was exceptional helping us with all the music for our daughter's wedding November 12, 2016 at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. We had "Stringsations" for the ceremony and cocktail hour. They were excellent, professional, brilliant musicians. For the reception, "All About Me" was the 10 piece band! EXCELLENT!! Again, brilliant musicians. So professional, entertaining. Our guests were dancing all night and loved this band! They were so organized , emceeing the entire reception. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Exceeded expectations.

My experience with BVTLIVE! Was stellar! I worked with Bill Handy who was EXTREMELY helpful and was ALWAYS available to talk to, (which was a lot!). We booked "Stringsations" for the Ceremony- they were wonderful- just beautiful and professional musicians. Their sound was breathtaking when I walked into the Ceremony; brought tears to my eyes. They also played for the cocktail hour. "All About Me" was booked for the reception. Awesome, wonderful, entertaining! They emceed the reception and were exceptionally organized before the wedding to get all the information needed to announce the wedding party, family, speeches, dances, etc. Our guests LOVED this band! The dance floor was full the entire night, up until the last song. We were so happy with everything they provided. Would HIGHLY recommend BVTLive, Stringsations and All About Me. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

- Carol Konski (Mother of the Bride)

The Ritz-Carlton: Kelly and Neil Appino – October 1, 2016

Music is so important in any special event and we were all just so thrilled with All About Me. From the first notes they played to the last, the dance floor was packed! All of our guests said it was the best band they had ever heard, and several people have already referred them to others seeking bands. We could not have asked for a better band. Wow, just wow!

- Carol (Mother of the Bride)

Please Touch Museum: Christina and Jonathan Gellis – September 30, 2016

All About Me was amazing! We had them for our wedding at the Please Touch Museum and everyone is still talking about how wonderful they were!

- Christina

The Water Works: Kathryn and Andrew Tursi – September 24, 2016

For our wedding we not only had a band, All About Me, but we also had a DJ, DJ Gaetano, from BVTLive! All About Me absolutely blew our guests away! They did an amazing job playing our strange requests for an EDM first dance, Led Zepplin entrance song for our bridal party and Shakedown Street remix by Boombox for my husband and my entrance song. We loved how the band got the guests dancing by standing on chairs while blasting on the trumpets and the lead singer getting into the crowd for "Shout!" Our dance floor was sweaty and crowded and it was totally a tribute to how awesome the band was! Definitely Definitely DEFINITELY use BVTLive!!

Flanders Hotel: Samantha and Patrick Morgan – September 16, 2016

Amazing band! They were so easy to work with and very accommodating. My wedding was a huge hit with them!

- Samantha (Bride)

Vie: Mia and Danny Wittels – September 4, 2016

All About Me played at our wedding over Labor Day Weekend at Vie. Working with Kurt from BVTLive! and All About Me band was amazing from the start. They are very involved in your planning process and are also very flexible when it comes to adding additional songs to your playlist. Working with Christina in particular was wonderful as she goes through your wedding worksheet with you and is very detail oriented. As for the music, you truly can't do better than this band. The music at our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and the cocktail hour was fun and relaxing. At the reception All About Me played an amazing variety of music genres that interested young and old guests. Our wedding was about 160 people and there were people on the dance floor THE ENTIRE NIGHT. It was amazing. Several guests told us that this was the best band they had ever heard in their lives and that they felt like they were at a concert the entire night. For us, choosing the right band for our wedding was our top priority. We 100% made the right choice by going with All About Me and if you visit their website and watch their videos you will understand why. If you want an amazing wedding and dance party experience HIRE THIS BAND NOW!

Dear Mike, Christina and the rest of the All About Me Band,

Thank you so much for making our wedding everything we could possibly dream of. The music was beautiful, the band was so energetic and fun. It was truly amazing in every way.

We have received SO many compliments regarding the band. Many guests told us that this was the best band they have ever heard in their lives (we tend to agree!).

Thank you again for so many wonderful memories. Everything was perfection and we truly appreciate it!

Tendenza: Caitlin and Dustin Ruiz – February 12, 2016

All About Me! Wow, just wow! I have been to my share of wedding receptions and I have never been as impressed with a band as I was with All About Me. When my daughter asked me for advice about music for her wedding I immediately thought “band with style and class”. You see I am in the music business, and admittedly difficult to impress. The wedding reception was held at Tendenza and my daughter had decided to go with a Gatsby theme, so the band would have to have a stylish presentation as well as great musicians, vocalists and panache. I had a band in mind, a few actually, but it wasn’t my wedding and, of course, her choice would be a band more in tune with today’s music. We sorted this out by going to a few organized audition evenings. When we had seen all of the bands we knew we had seen “the” band; All About Me was head and shoulders above the rest, and believe me there were other talented and polished bands to choose from. The thing is, I never expected to so completely enjoy the evening of music they put together at the reception. Did I say I am hard to impress? From start to finish the process was flawless. They had consulted repeatedly with my daughter and me about what needed to be played, what shouldn’t be played, what special songs they needed to learn, and made the planning easy, so I knew we were in good hands. From the cocktail hour with classy guitar and sax background music right through to the evening finale they were perfect. All About Me did a fantastic job of putting together an evening of music that kept the dance floor filled. The selection of songs was planned to build energy on the dance floor to a crescendo over and over like waves crashing on a beach, endless energy! All ten members of the band were flawless in the playing and singing, wonderful arrangements and tight vocal harmonies, thrilled me song after song. It was evident they were there for a party and conveyed to us all that they were having a blast too. The ultimate compliment however was repeated over and over as the evening drew to a close when guests came to thank me for hiring “the best wedding band they had ever heard”. As I said I am difficult to impress, and All About Me blew me away. Before you decide on a wedding band, or a band for any event where a party breaks out on the bandstand and the dance floor, give All About Me a listen. Wow, just wow!

Union Trust: Jamie and Nicholas Tromba – May 27, 2016

You need to book this band, don't even hesitate about it another second. They were excellent, we just got back from our honeymoon, two weeks since our wedding and our friends and family are still raving about All About Me, asking for their name and complimenting how they felt like they were at a concert during our reception. They had the party going till the last song of the night. I HIGHLY recommend All About Me for your wedding.

April 2016 Wedding

All About Me brought the energy and the fun! We originally saw them perform at a showcase and we were blown away. To that point, we had looked at 10-12 bands already, but All About Me stood well above the rest and we knew we had to book them. Despite our high expectations going into our wedding night, the band actually delivered above and beyond what we were hoping for. They bring both serious musicianship (the keys and horn sections are incredible and played off each other all night) and loads of upbeat positive energy. The dance floor was packed all night long! Marcus is the epitome of a showman and he really commands the stage and the audience. He has great moves and he hit some ridiculous notes. The female vocalists had beautiful voices as well (and they can rap!!!). They often interact with the audience and they're not afraid to leave the stage and perform from the floor. All in all, we were thrilled with the performance and have zero regrets about choosing All About Me. They come highly recommended.

Tendenza: Denucci-Pine Wedding – January 15, 2016

All about me was great! They played everything we asked for and kept the crowd up and dancing the entire time. Thank you for making our wedding a night we will never forget!!

- Ron Pine

Union League of Philadelphia: O’Brien-Frazier Wedding – January 2, 2016

I wanted to thank all the band members in "All About Me!" They played at our daughter's wedding at The Union League and did an awesome job. Our family and guest raved about them-they were instrumental (no pun intended) in making our daughter's wedding a huge success-thank you!

- Debbie Swope O'Brien

Mansion on Main Street: Jena and Stephen Quinn Wedding – October 23, 2015

"All About Me was professional, energetic and entertaining. They catered the songs completely around my wishes. Many guests commented on how amazing the band performed. The band kept ALL the guests up on the dance floor. This band MADE MY WEDDING!"

- Jena

Congress Hall: Christy and Ben Killips

"We used BVTLive!’s band All About Me for our wedding, and it was one of the best decisions we made! All the guests could not stop talking about the amazing band and the dance floor was completely packed with EVERYONE ALL NIGHT! We had the absolute best time, and the band is certainly one of my favorite memories from that night. They were able to read the crowd and really did an excellent job interacting with the crowd and selecting great songs! Also, prior to the event, coordinating with the band was easy and low stress. We were able to do a song selection online and did a phone conference with the band that worked well. I really cannot speak highly enough about this wedding. Just absolutely the best."

The Raquet Club: Kristin and Dominik Niziol Wedding

"All About Me was one of the best choices we made in the wedding planning process! We loved them after seeing them for the first time at a showcase, and booked them the second time we saw them. Our reception music was awesome! The band was very flexible with our timeline and made everything run very smoothly! We have heard so many compliments about our wedding and everyone agreed that the band was the best they had ever seen! We could not have made a better choice for our band!"

- Kristin (Bride)

Please Touch Museum: Minnie and Marc Manara Wedding

"When planning our son's wedding we were fortunate to meet with Bill Handy from BVTLive! who invited us to attend an event where the band" All About Me" was performing! That experience was all we needed to make the decision. The band is FABULOUS and each member is incredibly talented ! They made the wedding such a fun night and all of the guests are still talking about the music! We could not imagine a better band!! Their versatility and expertise with all types of music is exceptional. They also provided the music for the cocktail hour and it was perfect. The violin and cello duet for the ceremony was most beautiful ! Working with Bill and everyone at BVTLive! was a joy!!! 5 stars doesn't seem quite enough!!"

- Fran (Mother of Groom)

The Cescaphe Ballroom: Erica and Matt Furlan Wedding

"I can not begin to tell you how amazing BVTLive!’s ALL ABOUT ME was at my wedding. I still 1 month later have people calling me to tell me they were the best wedding band they have ever heard. They had so much energy, danced with the crowd and played the best variety of music. I am a control freak and it was really hard for me to let them pick the set list. I was of course able to pick a couple of my favorite songs but really left the rest of it up to them and I am so glad they work this way. They really know whats best and had every age group up and dancing. I probably went to see 20 bands before picking them and I knew right away there was no other choice. The dance floor was PACKED the whole night. I had 165 guests I am pretty sure they were all on the dance floor. Every time I turned around I saw one of my guests asking for their business card because of how impressive they were. Such down to earth, nice people who constantly throughout the night made sure everything was up to our standards. I could not have asked for a better experience. I can't believe I ever thought about having a DJ. If you have any hesitation, just go see them at a showcase...."


The Lake House Inn: Lindsay & Scott Miller Wedding

"I would love to be a reference for future clients. My wedding was the first out of a lot of my friends and my parents/in-laws friends and we know for a fact that a lot of our attendees were VERY interested in having All About Me for their wedding. They gave it 200% the entire time. Especially Marcus and Rachel. They were just so fantastic and really got the crowd going. They were interacting with the crowd and were having a great time along with us!" - Lindsay Miller, Bride

Northampton Valley Country Club: Dawn and David D’Agostino Wedding

We are very grateful to all the members of the band, All about Me. The were not only awesome to work with but they made our wedding such a fun memorable event. From the moment we came to the show case it has been a pleasure working with BVTLive! and I would highly recommend your services to anyone. Our wedding was November 22, 2014 and we are still getting phone calls raving about the band.

Wishing a joyous holiday season and a healthy happy New Year!

-Dawn D'Agostino

The Chesapeake Inn: Suzanne and Matt Twaddell Wedding

Dear All About Me,

You were so fun and such a joy to work with. We're so lucky we had you to make our night so awesome--it wouldn't have been the same with any other band.

Thank you!
