Jellyroll Band Reviews

Mendenhall Inn: Taylor-McNulty

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.

Kurt & Band Members,

We just wanted to thank you for being a part of our special day. You sounded amazing, and everyone had nothing but great things to say about your music. You not only learned songs for us, but you had all of our guests dancing the entire time. You made our night, and we will be forever grateful.

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.

Collingswood: Brown-Norris

Dear Kurt,

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.

Thanks again,

Rebecca and David Norris

Collingswood: Brown-Norris 2

Dear Kurt,

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

Dear Kurt,

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.

Best Regards,

Brenna and Brian Hildebrand

Fairview Park Marriott: Werner-Meurlin Wedding

 May 6, 2006

Dear Kurt,

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.

Dear Kurt and the rest of the Jellyroll band,

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!!!!

November 18, 2005

Dear Dave & Kurt,

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. You produced four amazing groups that worked perfectly with the "feel" of each room at the Chase Center on the Riverfront.

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!

Warm regards,

Cher and Kate

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.  There was little room left on the dance floor!  It truly was a party and a joyous celebration!   Thank you for encouraging and listening to our input and especially playing Sweet Caroline for my niece - you have a BIG fan in a 3 year old from Indiana! 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.

Hotel du Pont: Sandford-Sweatman Wedding

 September 23, 2005


I can't thank you and Jellyroll enough for all that you did. Our reception was perfect thanks to you and the music your amazing band was able to produce. Learning our wedding song and my own request for my wife was exceptional. We were worried that no one would dance, but it turns out that we had people on the floor all night, especially our guests from overseas who couldn't believe their ears. You guys were my wife's first choice and first decision when we became engaged and I completely understand why she quickly locked you in for our reception.

Chris and I really just wanted to e-mail you to thank you and the band for making our wedding such a great time. The music saved the day. We just got back from our honeymoon last Tuesday! The band is AWESOME and we have gotten rave reviews from all who attended…Thanks for letting my dad play with the band, it was a blast and really meant a lot to myself and him. Not too shabby, right? He did well.

Thanks again, looking forward to seeing the band very soon!!!!

Please extend our deepest thanks to the members of Jellyroll. It was your performance that gave Lisa and Ben the wedding of their dreams. I'll never forget your rendition of "You're All I Need to Get By" as long as I live and I've received several phone calls in Houston about that dance with my son, Ben.
