Incredible band – 10 out of 10!! We honestly could not be more thrilled with BVTLive! and the Experience band’s performance for our wedding. We had the BEST time. The music was incredible and did not miss a single beat. We’ve been getting nothing but the most positive raving reviews from our guests.

We had The Experience Band as our wedding band and we could not have been more thrilled with our time. They were very thorough during the planning process; making sure that they coordinated the timelines, song lists and any special requests we had. Our wedding reception was seriously the MOST fun time EVER thanks to them! Each member of the band is so talented and they brought so much life and energy to our dance floor. They are able to play such a wide variety of songs… After the wedding, the number one thing people have said was how amazing our band was. We would recommend them to anyone! We wish we could relive the night over and over! Thank you so much to BVT Live and The Experience Band for such a smooth and fun planning process and for the best wedding EVER!
