Jellyroll Band Reviews

Curtis Center: Wittels-Fertig, July 25, 2010

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,

Kate and Ira

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

There aren't words to describe how GREAT you guys were the night of our wedding!!  People are still taking about it...about how much fun they had and how amazing our band was 🙂  I warned everyone but I think they finally believe me haha  Thank you thank you thank you to you and the entire band! We had the most amazing day and you rocked our reception better than we imagined.  Hope you got to relax a bit after that crazy weekend!

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!

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!

July 18, 2003

Nathan and I would like to thank Jellyroll for making our wedding at Talamore such a success. Everyone asked "Who is that band?  They are incredible!"  I was impressed with how smoothly everything went: from introductions, to the first dances to the toast.  The band demonstrated class and professionalism throughout the entire evening, and they played songs that appealed to all ages.  I cannont convety to you enough how impressed we were with Jellyroll.  I know a number of my guests at the wedding took down Jellyroll’s number to use the band at a corporate event or for another wedding.  I’d also like tot hank you personally, Kurt, for being so friendly and accommodating, always returning my calls immediately.  We will definitely recommend you to our friends who get married in the Philadelphia area!  Thanks again for doing such an amazing job at our wedding.  Jellyroll is the best!

Spring Mill Country Club: Sosnow-Brack Wedding, October 25, 2009

October 25, 2009

Dear Dave, Kurt, and the Jellyroll Band,

I just wanted to drop you a little note to thank you again for making my daughter Randi's wedding such a fantastic affair.  I have been to many, many weddings and Bar Mitzvahs, but you were, without a doubt, the best band I have ever heard!

Everyone was up and dancing the whole time. The entire night people were coming up to us and saying what a great wedding it was.  They all said that they had never heard such a great band. All generations were having a ball!

The wedding was two weeks ago, and I am still getting phone calls about the band.  I am handing out your card at the different functions I attend, as people are still talking about it amongst themselves.

Please accept my most sincere thanks for making my daughter's wedding a night to remember!

Oh what a night! I do not even know where to start. We had such a wonderful time. I know it was a huge request to ask you to learn three brand new songs, but you did it and nailed every single one. From the first minute to the last you were such fun to work with. We love you guys!

See you soon,

Dear Kurt and Band members:

Thank you so much for the awesome job that you did in creating the perfect celebration for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding. From song choice to execution, everything was note-for-note and delivered with amazing energy. More to the point, all of the members of the band worked hard all night to put on a top-notch and entertaining performance. For a party of 168, at any given time there were at least 125 people on the dance floor. People loved the interaction between the band members and the guests. Everyone we talked to has said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. You guys played a large part in making that happen.

I am sure you hear this often but for Lorraine and I, Jellyroll made our daughter's wedding a spectatcular event. I truly appreciate your listening to what we wanted for that night, and the high energy created by the music was sustained far beyond our expectations. Our guests are still talking to us about the greatness of the band!

Special thanks for making my father-daughter dance most memorable and allowing Lanny Ward, our out-of-town sax, to be with you during some of the sets. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire night dancing, listening and watching everyone having a great time.

Jellyroll is beyond terrific!

My WIFE and I can’t thank you and your band enough for being so incredible. Everyone, including and especially Buzz, was just beyond phenomenal and all of our guests have been raving about you, including all of my coworkers.

You all performed beautifully, in every way, and have made this reception one of the greatest memories of my life. From working with my family on crazy things to dealing with my nutty song list requests, you were always an incredible collaborator and friend.

We must stay in touch, please, and more thanks are due when we get back.

My Sincerest Gratitude,
