Overbrook Golf Club: Aileen and Denis Dunn – January 27, 2018
BVTLive! was great and I would definitely recommend them. Our band was “all about me” and they brought the house down. Everyone we spoke to was professional and courteous. We had no issues with the band on our wedding day and all our guests were dancing!

The Casino at Lakemont: Mary Claire and Dylan Nagle – Decemeber 31, 2017

- James (Father of the Bride)
Tendenza: Julie and James Hoviland – October 21, 2017
Choosing a band is one of the most important decisions you have to make when planning an event. Our decision to choose All About Me was correct. I would choose them again if I was doing it all over. From initial contact to pre planning to the set list, it went off flawlessly. Most importantly the bands performance was energetic, artistic and they absolutely rocked the house! Sure, we could have picked a less expensive band but these guys earned every penny!
- Brian (Father of the Bride)
The Racquet Club: Kate and Luke Roberts – October 20, 2017
We had ALL ABOUT ME play at our daughter's wedding last month. They did a great job. Everyone was dancing. I also appreciated their prompt responses during the planning process. I would recommend them to my friends and family.

The Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia: Sara and Zach Augustine – October 7, 2017
I have never seen a band embrace a dance floor the way you did tonight. From the first note to the last, you were exceptional! All About Me not
only exceeded the expectations of the bride and groom, but everyone in attendance! I got SO many complements about you guys! Mike, your communication with Brian Kappra, not only tonight, but during the entire planning process was recognized highly. Brian came up to me several times singing your praises. He said you're the most professional band he's worked with in a long time and that your ability to adjust on the fly was exceptional! Great job! Thanks again for a great party! You guys should feel very proud!

The Atrium At The Curtis Center: Alysson and Eric Teodoro – October 6, 2017
The 10 member "All About Me Band" was outstanding. Band leader Mike and lead singer Marcus kept the party going on and off stage. Music selection spanned the decades from the 40's to current. Volume was very appropriate. Cocktail pianist and sax were outstanding. Everyone was pleased. Wonderful.
- Walt (Father of the Bride)
Hotel du Pont: Erika and Mike Gallucio – September 29, 2017
All About Me made my wedding! Truly talented and I am a musician myself! They did a great job interacting with the guests and making everyone get up and dance! They learned our wedding song perfectly!
- Erika (Bride)
The Ballroom at the Ben: Lauren and Scott Solyak – September 9, 2017
All About Me was fabulous! Words cannot describe how beautiful our day was. They had our guests on the dance floor the entire evening! So many people asked where we found them and wanted their contact information! Thank you for giving us the best evening we ever could have imagined! A "Band" truly makes for a perfect wedding!
- Maryann (Mother of the Bride)
Front and Palmer: Amanda and Michael Van Pelt – September 3, 2017
We recently used "All About Me" as our wedding band and could not have been happier. They exceeded all of our expectations. We received so many complements on how awesome they were from guests and the dance floor was packed until the very last song. They learned our first dance song since it wasn't in their normal playlist and did a great job with that too. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band, as they're a bit cheaper than some of the headline bands in the Philly area but arguably throw an even better party!
- Michael (Groom)
Springfield Country Club: Kristen and Austin Moore – August 19, 2017
All About Me was amazing! They were the perfect band for our wedding. They were very accommodating with all of our song requests and Marcus was great at getting the crowd excited!
- Kristen (Bride)
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.
- Jennifer (Bride)
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
As father of the bride, I couldn't be happier with All About Me. We heard repeatedly "Best Band Ever!" You cannot go wrong with this band.
- Jim (Father of the Bride)
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!
- Michael (Groom)

100% First Class!!!!! From the showcase to the wedding, absolutely perfect!!!! BVTLive! hosted a wonderful showcase of magnificent bands. From these, we chose the All About Me band. And WOW, an absolutely wonderful wedding band!!! Our party was for ~175 people. The music selections were fabulous, from the wedding ceremony to reception, dinner and dancing; the band was interactive and the sound was extraordinary. Outstanding!!!! 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.

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!
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.
