Thank you for the wonderful performance at The White House on March 29, 2008. All who attended the reunion had an incredible time, and your music was a highlight of the evening.

Ballroom at Ellis Preserve: Kimberly & Tom – January 10, 2020
I literally have no words (and I’m very rarely speechless) for how totally incredible Jellyroll was on our big day. And, we were SO happy you dropped by it was so amazing to see you!!!!
As you know Jellyroll is a DellaFranco wedding tradition, but it was my first time hearing them live and boy did they exceed all expectations! If you’ve talked to any of the band members they would probably tell you I spent the majority of my night about 3 feet from them on the dance floor invading their personal space like a groupie, occasionally sharing the microphone with them which more than made my night! We have had so many people reach out to say how fabulous and so very talented they were.
We are so so grateful to have had BVT and Jellyroll as part of our big day, we will be sure to review in all the right places but you know who to call if you ever need a personal reference.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our night one to remember for both us and all of our guests!

The Best!! BVTLive and Jellyroll are just absolutely amazing. They were a joy to work with and ALL of our guests couldn't believe how incredible they were! We are still receiving compliments 🙂 We would recommend BVTLive and Jellyroll to anyone!!

The Ballroom at the Ben: Katie and Joe Long – December 6, 2019
They make everything so easy! They have a huge list of songs to pick from that is all done online. They interacted with us on the dance floor which we loved (my husband in particular since they let him have the mic for a second). Overall the band always keeps the atmosphere upbeat and fun - we received SO many compliments on the songs and the band after our wedding. Everyone loved them! We highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding - you won't be disappointed!

The Union League: Mary & Mike McNulty – November 30, 2019
Amazing and talented musicians that connect with their audience,
In addition to being outstanding musicians and vocals, they connected and interacted in a way with the audience that that the vast majority of the audience had never experienced.

The Ballroom at the Ben: Annie and Tom McCarthy – October 25, 2019
JellyRoll is the best band ever!!!
Our wedding was such a blast thanks to JellyRoll from BVTLive! Kurt is so incredibly genuine and nice and the absolute best to work with. My mom and I came into the office before the wedding and were enthusiastically greeted by the BVTLive team. Everyone is SO nice and makes you feel so special! JellyRoll CANNOT be best. They are absolute pros. They run the whole night with amazing pace and flow and keep the dance floor PACKED! They even learned several special songs for us, specific to our wedding. They are truly amazing and we are still receiving comments from guests about how they are the best wedding band they have ever heard. Everyone in the band is SO nice and SO talented. We are praying we get invited to a wedding with JellyRoll in the future so we can hang out with them again! Hiring JellyRoll from BVTLive was the best wedding decision we made!!! Definitely do it!

The Water Works: Natalie and Michael DeRitis – October 4, 2019
Michael and I just wanted to say thank you to you and Jelly Roll for performing at our wedding this past weekend at Water Works. We received so many compliments on how good the band was at our wedding. We even had a few people ask if Jelly Roll performs at different venues because they wanted to go see them again.
You guys totally killed it and had everyone dancing the whole night. We couldn't have asked for a better band so thank you!
- Natalie Seal (Bride)
Joseph Ambler Inn: Caroline and Glen Eckert – September 21, 2019
I just wanted to let you know that Jellyroll delivered and then some! They were even better than I imagined! It was so surreal, I couldn't believe that they were really playing at my wedding. It was overwhelming and so so much fun! I'm sorry you couldn't be there. I also wanted to apologize for the teeny tiny space the event staff made the band play in. Glen and I were sent a floorplan with the band in a 25 x 15 area, however, that was not the area they were told to set up in. By the time Glen and I got to the venue, it was too late to do anything about it. Glen and I apologized to the band, they were very gracious and professional. It did not affect the great time we had, along with everyone else.
Thanks again and I hope your son won his game!
- Caroline (Bride)
Hello, Kurt, the band was incredibly amazing everybody there couldn’t believe how awesome jellyroll was thank you so much.

Hyatt at The Bellevue: Kevin and Courtney Leonard – September 21, 2019
Above my wildest dreams! We got to be honored with Jellyroll playing for our son’s wedding. We also had them play at our daughter’s wedding 6 years ago. They were as fabulous today as then and are the kindest people who just happen to make an event memorable all by themselves. I wish I had more children to get married so they could play. I guess I’ll just have to throw myself a party!!
- Donna (Mother of the Bride)
The Mendenhall Inn: Jason and Jessica Bishop – September 14, 2019
The best hands down! If you want the best, get the best and hire Jellyroll. No other band compares - our wedding was over a month ago and the first word out of our guests mouths is always "Oh my gosh, that band!" There is no song or genre that they can't do and to say their performance will make your wedding is an understatement!
- Jessica (Bride)
The Bellevue: Katie and Kyle Haley – September 7, 2019
We Loved Every Minute! Jelly roll you are truly amazing!!! We received numerous comments on how amazing you were and how everyone loved the whole performance! Literally the best live music ever and you made everything so fun and special for us! We are truly thankful for you for making our day amazing!
- Katie (Bride)
The Lucy: Jim and Kaila Revello – September 6, 2019
We booked Jellyroll for our September wedding at The Lucy and the planning process was great. Kurt was helpful and responsive. Jellyroll is thought to be the top wedding band in the entire city so we had really high expectations and I am so sad to admit when all was said and done, we were disappointed. We pulled probably close to 60-70 songs from their supplied song list and they played maybe 10 of them. 90% of our "must plays" went ignored. It really seemed like they had a set list that is standard, with a few requests sprinkled in that were not even special requests because they came off of a list they gave us. I'm not sure why we were asked to go to the trouble to identify songs off their list if they had no intention of playing them. They are obviously a talented and dependable band and we were happy with their overall performance, it's just disappointing knowing they did not play the majority of our list.
- Kaila (Bride)
The Union League of Philadelphia: David and Jill Owen – August 17, 2019
Phenomenal band! Simply the best band, ever. No one sat down at our wedding - we danced all night! The musicianship and professionalism is phenomenal.
Every member of the band is so personable and they go out of their way to give you the best reception! Don't book any other band, if you are lucky enough to find this band free, do it!!! AMAZING NIGHT!!! Thank you Kurt and Jellyroll!!!!
- Kitty (Mother of the Bride)
The Old Mill: Eileen and Geoff Meehle – July 12, 2019

Crystal Tea Room: Elise and Billy Viscuso – June 22, 2019
BVTLive was incredibly easy to do business with and Jellyroll had the dance floor filled the entire wedding. Everyone commented on how much they loved the band.
- Annamarie (Mother of the Bride)
Jericho National Country Club: Brooke and Evan Tsembelis – June 15, 2019
The absolute BEST band! There are not enough words to describe how amazing Jellyroll is! Hiring them to be a part of our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. The dance floor was packed the entire night and at the end of the reception our guests didn’t want to stop dancing. Our guests continue to rave about how incredible they were, with many guests saying that Jellyroll was the best wedding band they’ve ever heard/seen - and we agree! They sang and played our first dance song and parent dance songs better than the original artists. There truly aren’t enough words of praise for their talent and energy! We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for the best band around.
- Brooke (Bride)
Jellyroll is amazing. The band played for our daughter’s wedding and they were extraordinary. The range of songs they played to perfection left us feeling like we were at a concert and we all danced the night away. Everyone at the wedding was on their feet and we enjoyed every moment. When the lights went up at the end of the night everyone was still dancing and hoping for more!!!! We can’t thank Jellyroll enough for making our family wedding a magical night!!!!
- David (Father of the Bride)
The Lake House Inn: Devin and Rob Manley – June 14, 2019
Worth every penny!! Your guests will be dancing all night! Hiring Jellyroll as our wedding band was one of the best decisions we made!! Kurt, the band manager, was incredibly responsive, professional and went out of his way to make us feel like we were a top priority.
Before my husband and I were even announced into the ballroom, Jellyroll had our guests out of their chairs and on the dance floor! We received tons of rave reviews - one guest told me the music sounded so much like the original artists she was sure they had taken a break and put on a recording, but they didn't stop making music for one minute -- Jellyroll is JUST THAT GOOD! Another guest told me her feet were barking but she just couldn't stop dancing, every song was a jam!!
Having a band can be a more expensive option, but trust us, Jellyroll is worth every penny! We can't say enough good things! They turned our wedding reception into an epic dance party. Every guest left with a smile and so did me and my new husband!
- Devin (Bride)
The Union League of Philadelphia: Kara and James Westhafer – June 8, 2019
Kurt, I can not say enough about how fantastic the band was on Saturday. From the very beginning with Tesa singing Over the Rainbow and Always Remember Us This Way to the AMAZING show Jellyroll gave at the reception. Everyone said it was like being at a really great private concert! My brother in law in the entertainment business said he never experienced such an awesome band and he has been to a lot of awesome weddings! It was everything we hoped for and more. I still break down and cry when I hear Tesa’s beautiful voice singing Over the Rainbow. The entire band, Paul, Dondi, Mark and I am sorry I can’t remember the name of the other female lead singer who is equally talented with an amazing voice.. the horns were amazing too. I can’t say enough. We have marked our calendar for the 40th anniversary show at Ardmore Music Fair. From the bottom of our hearts, to the entire band, thank you for being there and making it the time of our lives! You more than lived up to your reputation.

The Union League of Philadelphia: Caroline and Mike Noce – April 27, 2019
Best wedding band! We had a blast dancing to Jellyroll. Very fun night.
- Betsy (Mother of the Bride)
The Rittenhouse Hotel: Kristine and John Treese – April 6, 2019
Get ready to dance! We had Jellyroll play at our Wedding after reading tons of reviews and hearing great feedback from others in the Wedding Industry and I am happy to report that they were outstanding. Our guests danced the night away and many came up to us to let us know that they were "THE BEST wedding band!" they had ever heard. And they truly are the best!
Aside from making our guests happy they also went above and beyond for us. Jellyroll learned several new songs for our first dance, our mother-son dance and the father-daughter dance. Each song was perfect. Having a band that was so flexible, professional, and willing to accommodate made our day so special.
Jellyroll has an incredible range of music they know and play, they are all so fun and kind, and they make you feel special. Hands down the best. Thank you, Jellyroll!
- Kristine (Bride)
The Lucy: Ronnie and Steve Giannascoli – March 30, 2019
Our guests are still contacting us about how awesome Jellyroll was! Everyone danced the entire time they played. They are extremely professional and courteous. They performed during the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Incredible energy on the stage! We absolutely highly recommend them.
- Ronnie (Bride)
The best decision I ever made (besides marrying my husband) was hiring Jellyroll to play at our wedding this September (2016). Guests would not stop talking about how great the band was, how I found them, and if I could send them their information. The dance floor was literally never empty. Towards the end of the night every. Single. Person. At our wedding was crammed onto the dance floor. Guests said they had never seen anything like it! Trust me, hire Jellyroll and you will be SOO happy you did! They are so much fun, so professional, and SO talented! I could not have asked for a better experience!
Thank you Kurt and Jellyroll!!!
Carly and Jeff Garcia
Jillian couldn't see the point of spending so much money on a band when a DJ would play the actual musicians' work. After a solo scouting expedition of about 20 bands, Todd took her to see Jellyroll. "I found a band that changed her mind," he said.
A very special thank you to Jellyroll, hands down the best band for any event! They performed at our daughter's wedding this past Saturday, August 20, at the Atrium at the Curtis Center. Last year, they played at our son's wedding at the Downtown Club. This band exhibits professionalism and a consistent quality to their music. They radiate a connective energy, and a filled dance floor is a testament to that. We absolutely love them, and we highly recommend them, without reservation. What an outstanding group of musical talent!
