Jellyroll Band: Best Wedding Band in Philadelphia
Read what our clients have said about their Jellyroll event experience!
Ballroom at the Ben : Waters/ McIlvaine Wedding 12/23/06
Thank you so much for helping us create the perfect wedding! Your patience and efforts towards planning our reception made us feel like we were your only clients. You listened attentively to all of our requests and presented a performance that was beyond our imagination.
Jellroll is the best! From the first time we saw them, we knew that no reception would be complete without you providing the soundtrack. We always thought that we would have a d.j. at our reception, because variety and authenticity were very important to us. Jellyroll is the only band that can make that possible. It is truly an unbelievable talent that Jellyroll can present the sounds from Michael Jackson to the Tempations and make each song sound as if the star was present in the room. The band was friendly and energetic and has become the topic with many of our guests. Our guests were so thankful for being able to dance the night away.
We have had multiple guests discuss booking Jellyroll for their own receptions. Even though your performance spoke for itself, we will continue to recommend your talents to friends and family members alike.

October 5, 2006
On behalf of Vision for EQuality, Inc., we would like to thank Jellyroll for an incredible performance at our 10th Anniversary Celebration at the Hyatt-Regency at Penn's Landing on October 5, 2006. Your professionalism during preparation for the event was exceptional and presented itself in your performance. Without doubt, your music was one of the most enjoyable part of the evening, demonstrated by the numerous compliments we received for choosing such a fantastic band. From the soothing jazzy songs being played during our cocktail hour to the bright, exciting music that brought everyone to their feet at the end of the night. Jellyroll definitely played a large roll in making VFE's 10th Anniversary Gala a fun and fantastic event.
Best Wishes for Jellyroll's performing career, and we hope to see all of you at another VFE event.

September 29, 2006
Thanks so much for making our wedding such a success!! Our friends are still talking about it!! Of course, we knew what to expect....that's why we chose Jellyroll! From the moment that the doors opened and the music began we felt the excitement in the room. The bride and groom dance to Natalie and Nat King Cole was superb! Thanks for learning it. Also, thanks for working with us during our crazy antics on stage and the Soul Man Review!!! Your final song (being a fast dance and not "Last Dance") was the end of your accomplishments. IF anyone needs a referral do not hesitate to give them my number!!! Best wishes for many more successful years and I'm sure we will be seeing you again.

July 22, 2006
Jellyroll performed at our daughter's wedding on Saturday, July 22 at Cescaphe's Ballroom, and they were amazing!!!!!!! We are in awe of each and every member of the band. We have received so many compliments about Jellyroll during that evening, by phone, email, thank you notes, etc. They were truly a class act and added so much to our already awesome wedding. We were so totally thrilled with our choice of bands for Nicole's wedding. Thank you for making our daughter's day so special!!!!! Your reputation precedes you; however, should you need a reference, please feel free to give our name.
Carol & Bob Brennan (Parents of the Bride) and Nicole & Brian Donovan (Bride & Groom)
We wanted to pass along our sincere thanks to you and the other members of Jellyroll. We had such a wonderful time at our wedding and our many thanks to you for making it so. So many of our guests can not stop talking bout how fantastic the music was. It is a great compliment to you all that even the groom’s family was on the dance floor much of the evening, and they are not big dancers. Thank you for being readily available to answer all of our questions, learning the new songs we requested and for providing us with wonderful entertainment. I will without a doubt refer you to my friends.

Collingswood: Brown-Norris 2
I wanted to take this opportunity to write and tell you how pleased Debi and I were with BVTLive! and, more particularly, Jellyroll, and your assistance and coordination from the very beginning months ago until the event itself. Every aspect of BVTLive!’s/Jellyroll's role in the event was exceptional.
From the first time we heard Jellyroll perform in Delaware, we knew that BVTLive! and Jellyroll were just what we needed to ensure a lively affair and an enjoyable time by all our guests...And you did not disappoint! Jellyroll’s ability to involve the vast majority of guests on the dance floor all night long was beyond our expectations and contributed to the elegance and overwhelming success of the evening. The fact that almost all the guests stayed until the end of the evening speaks volumes. And everyone we spoke to had nothing but great things to say about Jellyroll.
When you couple a great venue with a terrific organization like BVTLive! and its super band, Jellyroll, with the wonderful caterers, beautiful flowers, etc., it is easy to understand why Debi and I, and more importantly, Becky and David, were so happy with the way the wedding turned out.
Thanks again for helping to make our wedding event so special!

Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia: Dickerson-Hildebrand Wedding
June 16, 2007
What can I say? Jellyroll is absoutely amazing! The band truly made our wedding at the Four Seasons one to remember. All of our guests danced the night away, and we have you and the rest of the members of the band to thank.
From the moment you arrived and greeted us before we entered teh ballroom, everyone was extremely prepared and very pleasant to deal with. One of your singers clearly explained how the entrances and announcements were to go and prepared us to have fun. The entired night of our wedding we received comments of how great the band was. Brian and I honestly believe that you sang our wedding song better than the original artists. The entire night was so much fun and the energy that the band presented kept all of our guests smiling and happily entertained.
The entire process of planning was extremely organized. You stayed in contact with us and made it so easy to prepare for the entertainment part of our wedding. We cannot thank you enough. Our family and friensd are still talking about this, and probably will continue to talk about our wedding and how fantastic everything was. Thank you for making our wedding day one to remember.

Fairview Park Marriott: Werner-Meurlin Wedding
May 6, 2006
I am writing to express to you our sincere appreciation for the extra effort you and your fellow band members went through to play at our wedding in Washington, DC. Jellyroll is by far, hands down, the best band ever. We knew it, Hilary knew it, my friends from Pennsylvania knew it, and now Washington, DC knows it. The biggest comment that our guests made to us during and after the wedding was how great you all were and how much fun they had on the dancefloor. You made the reception a huge success.
You guys have a talent and share it with every group you play for.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

We, and our new extended family, would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for making our daughter and new son-in-law's special day so wonderful. We could not have hasked for anything more. We have been besieged with phoen calls from all of our guests raving over the band. Everyone has said they have never attended a wedding where the dance floor was packed the entire time. Your band far exceeded our expectations.
Thanks for the wonderful memories!!!!

We at Planning Factory International want to express our sincere thanks for your willingness to work together on the Chase Center Re-Dedication Celebration on Friday, November 18, 2005.

The Ellen Lebowitz Jazz Group was wonderful in the Christiana Ballroom; guests really enjoyed mingling around the room and listening to the group.
Conjunto 23 was great in the lobby; their dancers were extremely enthusiastic and quite talented!
The Tony Forliano Jazz Group was terrific; they were the perfect group to entertain guests in the Governors' Hall.
Finally, Jellyroll was fabulous!! They were high energy and so enthusiastic; you had the group dancing like crazy.
Thank you again for partnering with us; we truly enjoyed working with you and we look forward to working together again in the future!

Dear Dave, Kurt, and the rest of Jellyroll,
Dave and I just wanted to take a minute to thank you all for the phenomenal job you did at our wedding! you all went so far above what we could have ever wished for- from Beyonce to Springsteen and everything in between, we barely got off of the dance floor! Our guests still haven't stopped talking about "the best wedding ever," and this was due in no small part to all of the awesome music. Thank you all for our hard work, flexibility, and positive attitudes. You truly helped give us the wedding of our dreams!

Dear Kurt and the rest of the Jellyroll band,
Thank you so much for making our wedding such an amazing event! Your enthusiasm, professionalism and sheer excitement engaged all of our guests, the effect of which was tremendous.

You were a joy to work with and made this big wedding detail an easy process!
Above all, many thanks to each of you for sharing your remarkable talents with all of us - you are truly gifted and your music has the ability to transcend the ages… we felt so lucky to have you there celebrating our special day.
