Thank you for being part of our event on Thursday evening and THANK YOU for making it SO MUCH FUN for our guests...the dance floor was never empty!

The Union League of Philadelphia: Joyce and Jack Cremin – April 1, 2017

My wife and I wish to commend "Jellyroll" for the outstanding performance at the wedding of our daughter, Joyce, and her husband Jack on April 1, 2017 at the Union League in Philadelphia. Jellyroll was professional and attentive from our first phone call to their final song. The group worked with Joyce and Jack to personalize their selections and performance. They made a special effort to learn a song at the request of the groom's mother which had a tremendous sentimental value to the groom's family. The vocals, instrumentals and sound were outstanding. It is not easy to please a diverse group of over three hundred guests, but they succeeded!

The Atrium at the Curtis Center: Margarita and Brendan Logue – January 28, 2017

Hi Kurt,
Wanted to write and thank you once again! You guys did an amazing job! Everyone can't stop talking about the absolutely amazing band we had! It was everything I could imagine and more! We couldn't be any happier!

All the best to you and your team!!
Margarita

The Downtown Club: Krista and Jessa Tepedino – January 21, 2017

I think it's a very simple concept: if you are getting married in Philadelphia, or the surrounding area, you should call BVTLive, and you should book Jellyroll. Jellyroll played at my wedding on January 21, 2017 and they were nothing short of perfect. They were fantastic; they played every song we requested, the crowd loved everything about them, they catered to each and every one of our requests, they communicated every step of the way, from the initial conversations, through booking, through the wedding night. I would be happy to provide additional information, but it isn't necessary: call BVTLive, book Jellyroll for your event - or hope whoever else you settle with hasn't been to an event with Jellyroll before.

The Madison Hotel: Julie and Eric Recupero – December 31, 2016

Jellyroll was absolutely incredible! Their music was amazing leaving a packed dance floor. They are very good at reading the crowd and picking songs that will keep everyone dancing. Prior to the wedding, you are able to contact them and they will respond almost immediately. Kurt was also so kind giving us song recommendations, when we couldn't decide (very helpful!). Our wedding was almost 2 months ago and we are still hearing comments about how much fun everyone had at the wedding!

Merion Golf Club: Theresa and John Sawin – December 16, 2016

It goes without saying that Jellyroll created what is being tagged as "the party of the decade" at Merion Golf Club. I can't thank you enough for your energy, enthusiasm and talent! Again, I can't thank you enough for your input in making the celebration for Therese and John such a HUGE success!

All the Best,

Kathy Sawin


I wish we were having another wedding in PA so we could have Jellyroll!

The Atrium At The Curtis Center: Brittany and Greg McKinski – November 12, 2016

I can't find enough adjectives to describe Jellyroll. They were absolutely incredible!!! They made our wedding everything it was. I don't think one person was sitting down the entire night! They read the room perfectly, picked the perfect songs, to play. They sounded unbelievable, if you closed your eyes you'd think it was the artist singing! Every single one of the band members were THE NICEST (and genuinely nicest, not fake nice) people ever. My day wouldn't have been the same without Kurt and the rest of the band. Clearly I LOVED Jellyroll!!! If I could do it all over again, they would be the first thing I booked!!!! YOU WILL BE SO HAPPY WITH THEM!!!

Crystal Tea Room: Brittany and Mark Barrar – November 11, 2016

Jellyroll was amazing & I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in having a talented band play at their wedding!

- Brittany


As a vendor they are great, they have everything setup that you can pre-select a majority of the music and how you want your reception to go. We had Jellyroll, and the music makes the wedding. Everyone stayed until the end because it was like being at a live concert of actual bands. Phenomenal!

I honestly do not think there are enough words in the English language to express our thanks & gratitude to Jellyroll on Saturday night.   The band was absolutely beyond fantastic --- Thank You Thank You Thank YOU !!!!!

Hyatt at the Bellevue: Jill and Adam Rivera – October 29, 2016

Our wedding was at the end of October held at the Hyatt at the Bellevue and Jellyroll was our band of choice. There are not enough superlatives to describe how terrific of a performance they held the night of our wedding. Our main goal was to have the dance floor filled the entire night and that was more than achieved. Jellyroll came highly recommended and we had high expectations, but they exceeded those expectations. Not only was the band first rate and delivered an exceptional night of entertainment, but Kurt, the band leader was great to deal with throughout the process, taking phone calls, promptly answering emails, making suggestions, etc. Jellyroll made our wedding a complete success -- if you want the best, you really must go with them!

The Westin Philadelphia: Gillian and Alexander Platt – October 22, 2016

Jellyroll is phenomenal!!! People are still commenting on how incredible our wedding band was, almost 3 months later! Highly highly recommend!

The Down Town Club – Andrea and Andrew Matthews – October 8, 2016 – Note

Dear Kurt,
Thank you so much for the most memorable night of our lives. Throughout the planning process, we heard from our Philly friends that Jellyroll was “the best,” but that doesn’t even begin to describe how incredible you guys are! Relatives who haven’t danced in years spent the night on the dance floor, my parents were thrilled with the music selection and Greek dance integration, and Andrew and I were absolutely blown away. You were such a highlight of the night and we cannot thank you enough!

Sincerely, Andrea & Andrew

The Downtown Club: Andrea and Andrew Matthews – October 8, 2016

Jellyroll was incredible! Every step of the process, the team was so great and accommodating, and the actual wedding far surpassed my expectations. I had family members give the band standing ovations during dinner they were so good! We were married about 6 months ago and I am still hearing from guests that the band absolutely made my wedding. I could not have been happier with our decision to use them and would recommend them to anyone!

- Andrea

Front and Palmer: Carly and Jeff Garcia – September 30, 2016

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

The Down Town Club: Meghan and Jeff Yeager – September 24, 2016

Kurt,

You and the band were absolutely FABULOUS Saturday night!  I wasn't the least bit surprised.  In the words of Paul Simon: "I (you) blew that room away."  I received countless emails/texts about how great you guys were.  Don't be surprised if you get a call from Tavistock  CC.  Four of the people from the entertainment committee attended and they had nothing but great things to say about you & the band.  

On behalf of Eileen and me, thanks for making a great night even better.

- Joe (Father of the Bride)

Windrift Hotel: Jillian and Todd Borow – September 18, 2016

The splurge:

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.

Vie: Lauren and Evan Schwartz – September 3, 2016

Choosing a great band was the most important part of our day - so before we even picked a venue, we made sure to get Jellyroll's available dates! We had seen them perform at other weddings and the Philadelphia Car Show and knew we had to have them play at our wedding! The band was absolutely amazing!! Kurt made sure all of our requested songs were played and even pulled us up on the stage with the band to dance through the last song. My husband only had one request for our wedding - that they play his favorite Spanish dance song. Kurt ended the night playing this song on the loudspeakers through the room and all of our friends attacked the stage and danced with the band! Our guests did not leave the dance floor the entire night - we had the most amazing time and would HIGHLY recommend Jellyroll!

Thanks, Kurt, for helping to make our big day so special!

Vie: Lisa and Paul Getz – August 27, 2016

Thank you for all you did to make Lisa and Paul’s day so special. Thanks for a great night of dancing and for keeping the secret. This COULD NEVER have been done without your help. You helped turn a GREAT night into a DREAM night for both Lisa and Paul. Thanks and if ever you are in need of my services or help, you have a friend for life!

- Dave (Father of the Bride)


BVTLive was an incredible addition to our wedding! We utilized the band, Jellyroll & their Party Cam Photo Booth. We have had so many compliments from our wedding guests at how amazing everything was, thanks to BVTLive! Jellyroll is the BEST band in the area!! They were absolutely incredible, didn't stop the whole night & didn't miss a beat! They were even incredibly gracious & happy to share the stage with a special surprise guest at our wedding, too! They area such a talented group of musicians & know how to get a party rocking!! They had our guests dancing the ENTIRE night! The Party Cam Photo Booth was a fabulous addition. They brought some of the best props I have ever seen at a wedding. Our guests had a blast dressing up!! The pictures turned out so great too! I'd highly recommend BVTLive for any special event or occasion! They are the best!

The Atrium at The Curtis Center: Jessica and Scott Polsky – August 20, 2016

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!

Crystal Tea Room: Katie and Marc Maged – July 3, 2016

We used Jellyroll from BVTLive for our wedding in July. Prior to the wedding, we discussed with the Band Leader our music choices and taste we wanted to hear at both the reception and ceremony. They were professional, easy to work with and unbelievably talented! They played a variety of music throughout the night keeping the dance floor going all night long. All musicians and vocalists were A+! People are still telling us what a great band we had and fun evening! I would highly recommend Jellyroll to use at your wedding! You will not be disappointed 🙂

Hyatt at the Bellevue: Victoria and Thomas McCarthy – June 11, 2016

Why would you choose anybody else than the Grand Funkmaster of Philly Live music, Kurt is who I am talking about. If you can afford the expense of a live band, call Kurt if you want a real pro. We bugged the heck out of him and he always came up for air with a smile on his face. Jellyroll is the best in Philly,,,,,,no need to go to NYC. My guests went gaga over the music. I don't think anyone remembers those lamb chops and Chillean sea bass but most will recall the dance beat and Jellyroll music rhythms.

Bleu Bell Country Club: Kellie and Geoff Kalman – June 10, 2016 – Note

Kurt & the Jellyroll crew,
Thank you for such an incredible evening on Friday! Our guests were raving about the music and did not want the night to end. We had so much fun and it was everything we could have imagined our wedding day would be. We will be recommending Jellyroll to all our friends and family! Thank you again, you were such a pleasure to work with!

Love, Geoffrey & Kellie Kalman

Blue Bell Country Club: Kellie and Geoff Kalman – June 10, 2016

Jellyroll was absolutely amazing at our wedding. Kurt did a fantastic job taking care of all the details leading up to the big day and he made us feel comfortable and worry free. He assured us that they would be bringing the party and we put it in his hands and he came through. They also accommodated our singer/guitarist at the outdoor ceremony with no problem at all. As a surprise to me (the groom) and the rest of the event, they even rehearsed and worked with the father of the bride on a song that he performed during his speech. I had dozens of compliments after our event that the band was excellent and played a great range of music to make everyone feel included in the event. If you're considering Jellyroll do yourself a favor and book immediately!!

- Geoff


We hired Jellyroll for our wedding and it was the best decision we made! Kurt, the band leader, was very responsive and listened to what we liked and didn't like. He recommended songs based on the music we like and what would sound best given the talent of his band. They had everyone dancing the whole night and everything went off without any problems. So many of our guests commented on how much fun they had and that they hadn't danced so much at other weddings! Anyone who hires Jellyroll will not be disappointed and I would absolutely use them again!

The Atrium at The Curtis Center: Katherine and Alex Ziets – May 29, 2016

Dear Kurt and team,
Thank you for all that you did to make our wedding such a blast! Our guests cannot stop raving about how much fun they had and how incredible Jellyroll was! Thank you also for making the planning process and day of events go so smoothly. You were such a pleasure to work with and we will continue to recommend you to our family and friends.

Sincerely, Kate and Alex Ziets
