Dear Kurt,

Thank you so much for providing Jellyroll for the hotel's holiday party.

You have a great band, and our staff had a fabulous time. I am still getting rave reviews. We all greatly appreciate your efforts to give us such a good night.

Thank you, once again!

Fond regards,

Dear Kurt & Jellyroll,

My husband, Drew, and I cannot thank you enough for making our wedding such a success! I knew the first time I heard Jellyroll perform at the Bellevue for the Saint Joe's Shield of Loyola that I had to have you at my wedding. I have people tell me every day how great you guys were! You made the wedding day stress-free and unforgettable by learning and performing our wedding song by Pearl Jam (Just Breathe). It sounded amazing. Thanks again for doing what you do best - and I look forward to seeing you perform sometime soon!

I just wanted to let you know how terrific Jellyroll was this past Saturday night at my daughter Lauren's wedding. We couldn't have asked for more. You had the entire crowd up on their feet the whole party. Even my 88 year old mother danced the night away. We've been getting calls all day telling us how great  the band was. So from me, my wife, my daughter and her new husband we want to thank you for really knocking the ball out of the park.

Dear Kurt and the rest of Jellyroll,

It's been a few months, but THANK YOU again for the amazing performance Jellyroll put on at our wedding on August 28th. Thanks to you we had the party we dreamed of! Words can't describe how happy it made us to see the dance floor packed all night. Everyone from our 4 year old niece to our 80 year grandmother was rocking out! Our friends and family have not stopped talking about our band! Thank you again for making our wedding day more perfect than we could have ever imagined!

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience we had last Friday night when JellyRoll played at my daughter, Katie's wedding. We have received compliment after compliment regarding the wedding and know in large part that this is due to the party atmosphere that JellyRoll provided. They were everything we wanted and so much more.
Thank you again for making Katie and Jeff's wedding so memorable!

Dear Kurt,

Tom and I would like to thank you, as well as the rest of Jellyroll, for the spectacular music at our wedding. Everyone had such a wonderful time. From our first dance, "I'm Yours," to the very end, we loved it all! We greatly appreciate all you did to make it our dream wedding filled with dancing all night long.

Thanks again for everything!

Also, thanks for the hospitality that you and your band displayed

Hi Kurt,

We wanted to extend a huge thank you to you and Jellyroll. You were absolutely fabulous and made our wedding reception more fun than we ever imagined. We wanted our guests to dance all night and that's exactly what you made happen. The dance floor was full and we had so much fun dancing and laughing with our family and friends! We can't thank you enough!

I just wanted to take a second and say THANK YOU so much for the amazing job you did at our wedding last Sunday!! All I keep hearing from everyone is how much they loved the band, and I have already had people ask for your number for their upcoming events! The entire band was so nice and amazingly talented! What a wonderful group of people! We can't wait to get our wedding video back so we can relive the moments that went by too fast!

Thanks again,

Dear Kurt,

We know you were very instrumental in the Fairy Tale wedding Ali and Brian had on August 6th. Jellyroll did a phenomenal job at the reception. It was an honor to have you perform. Everyone raved about the band. When anyone asks how the reception was, we tell them it was magical. We would like to thank you again for your part in our magical evening at the Ballroom at the Ben!

Dear Kurt,

I know you have heard this a million times before, but Barbara and I can't thank you enough for the show you and Jellyroll put on for Hannah and Dan's wedding.  When we were first starting to plan the wedding, a friend told us, "The most important thing to do is to hire the best band possible, because it is the band that makes or breaks the party."  Boy was he right.  Everyone at the wedding, and I mean everyone, including my 91 year-old mother, told us that the music was fantastic, and that you guys were the best band they had ever heard. All the Brits were raving about Jellyroll.  They loved the Motown segment and loved the quiet, Beatles segment during the dinner.  As one of them said, "Every single vocalist and musician was simply superb."  On top of it all, you were a pleasure to work with and as were all the members of the band.

Once again, Kurt, we can't thank you enough, and we are already looking forward to the next big event.

Best regards,

Howard and Barbara Kaye

Kurt and Jellyroll,

Thank you for doing such a great job at our wedding. We had such a great time and so did all our family and friends. We have gotten so many compliments on how great the band was. Your music helped make our wedding everything we hoped it would be and more! We would be happy to recommend Jellyroll to any couple looking for a band!

All our best,

Dear Kurt,

This is a belated thank you for your orchestra’s participation in our daughter Pamela’s wedding on August 1st.

We cannot thank you enough for the preparation and performance for what was more than a memorable afternoon and evening.

After witnessing two of your performances at weddings prior to our Pammy’s, we thought that we had a good understanding of what we were to witness.

We were decidedly wrong. The musicality, professionalism, blend, melody, harmony and selection of pieces, not to mention your timing and coordination with the caterer, was nothing short of impeccable.

We fielded dozens of “Who was that orchestra?” calls. It reached the point where we were about to leave a message on our answering machine with your name and phone number. In fact, we were very pleased when many of our family and guests told us that yours was the best orchestra they had ever heard at any wedding, and this was from some of our more critical guests.

I am sure that you receive many accolades such as this, so allow me to just say that a thank you does not begin to express our appreciation for the wonderful music you provided for our affair. Your orchestra more than exceeded our expectations.

The White House certainly chose wisely in asking you to perform.

Best wishes,

Arnold M Baskies, MD

The Rittenhouse: LaFauci-Salimbene, June 25, 2010

June 25, 2010

We recently had Jellyroll perform at our wedding -- I'll get right to the bottom line:  They were amazing!  The variety of music that the band can play is unparalleled.  They had everyone from the 3-year-old flower girl to my 93-year-old grandmother dancing the whole night.  The most impressive thing about their vast repertoire is that there is no drop-off in quality with any genre of music they performed -- from Springsteen to Rhianna to Andrea Boccelli -- it was all done to perfection.  We had an incredible time at the wedding and I can't even tell you how many complements we've gotten about our band.

Perhaps even more impressive than the performance at the wedding is the level of professionalism and kindness that Kurt and the rest of the band displayed throughout the process.  From our first call, to the pre-wedding meeting, to the wedding day itself -- it felt like we were working with friends not simply another vendor.  Wedding planning can be kind of stressful at times, but we always felt perfectly at ease when it came to Jellyroll.  We knew they were going to deliver and they exceeded our expectations by a mile.  Thanks again!

Philadelphia Sounds from Jellyroll – Convention for American Public Health Association, November 8, 2009

Hello Kurt and Bill,

Thank you for the great performance during our Annual Meeting. It was a fun show with songs that everyone could dance too. We certainly enjoyed watching our Executive Director and the new Surgeon General participating in the Congo Line. We had a great turn out this year and I heard positive feedback all the next day. Thank you for being easy to work with and creating a great show.

Have a happy holiday season to you and the entire band!
