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. Would definitely recommend to anyone that they work with them!
