The Rittenhouse Hotel: Lauren and James Wybar – February 14, 2015
First of all, I must say that I am a hard person to satisfy. I expect only the best... There are no words to describe the incredible performance and the level of professionalism of BVTLive! (Jellyroll)! for our daughter's wedding. They were both elegant and high energy from beginning to end. We could not pry the guests from the dance floor all evening! No hesitation, in Philadelphia, clearly the Best in the Business! Thank You, Thank You Kurt, you are the Best!

The Down Town Club: Erin and George Caroulis – January 2, 2015
Jellyroll was a fabulous choice! Kurt and his group were easy to work with, open to all song choices, and got the party going! We had a wonderful time dancing the night away! Thank you to Jellyroll for making the night so memorable! Highly recommended!
Hotel du Pont: Hong and Sean Smith – January 16, 2015
First we talked to Kurt over the phone, he was very professional and responsive. We felt confident when we booked them. During the planning process, they had a worksheet and their song list online. The entire planning process was easy and well-organized. We loved every song Jellyroll played, and all of the our guests had a good time during the reception.
Cescaphe Ballroom: Courtney and James Sullivan – December 27, 2014
We had the pleasure of working with Kurt from BVTLive! to book Jellyroll for our wedding band. He was extremely nice and helpful throughout the whole process. We had attended a couple showcases and were blown away by how amazing Jellyroll sounded. When our actual wedding day came, they blew us away! Not only are they the most talented, fun band you'll ever see, they are all down to earth and extremely nice. They ROCKED the wedding. Form learning our wedding song, getting the crowd going with a mix of new and old songs, to ending the night with a legendary Born to Run for the groom, they made the night truly perfect. Every guest could not stop talking about the fun they had with the band. If you are looking for a band that brings energy, amazing talent and fun, then you must book Jellyroll.
Hyatt at The Bellevue: Anastasia and Robert Cappelli – November 1, 2014
“We were fortunate enough to have Jellyroll as our wedding band, thanks to my incredible mother and step-father-in-law. I am still receiving rave reviews about what an incredible job Kurt and Jellyroll did the day of our wedding! Our guests had a blast, and everyone was dancing on the floor! My husband was so moved by the rendition of "I'm on Fire" that we have played it during our honeymoon, and non-stop since the wedding. I want to get our videographer's raw footage, just to hear Jellyroll play again! They were also gracious enough to incorporate our Greek and Italian music into their playlist, and everyone was thoroughly impressed. We hope they will play in center city so we can see them play again! Best band ever!” - Anastasia
Crystal Tea Room: Leigh and Mike Leonard – September 27, 2014
Wow! We had seen Jellyroll on a few occasions prior to our wedding, yet they still managed to blow us away with their talent both individually and as a whole. We used musicians for our ceremony and cocktail hour as well and were thrilled that we did - they added such a great dynamic to each portion. Jellyroll had all 330 of our guests dancing the ENTIRE night! They were so good that at the end of the night, our guests chanted "one more song!" to which Jellyroll, of course, delivered! Kurt and Jellyroll, we cannot thank you enough! You were a pleasure to work with, accommodated all requests and made our wedding better than we could have imagined! Thank you!

The Ballroom at the Ben: Megan and Bradford Strater – October 18, 2014
Jellyroll was absolutely amazing last night. Every single guest commented on how awesome they were and just couldn't stop raving about them! They had everyone dancing all night!! I didn't want them to stop playing!!
The Down Town Club: Lisa and Nick Cassidy – October 17, 2014
Kurt!!! OMG we just wanted to say a quick thank you before we head out for Bali! You guys are AMAZING! I know you hear that all the time, but it's so true. OMG we are just speechless! And Enter Sandman rocked! The older guests were like "who sings that song we love it" and I said Metallica and they were amazed. Love you guys!!! Thanks again! Say hi to Dave!

The Down Town Club: Courtnee and Christopher Robertson Wedding – September 14, 2014
Dealing with BVT was the easiest part of our wedding planning! Kurt, the owner of BVT is the most pleasant person to deal with. When we had our first phone call together, I felt that I had known him for years! Our wedding was held at the Downtown Club, which BVT works very exclusively with. We went with the band “Jellyroll” and trust me they do not disappoint! They had everyone dancing literally all night long! They are the best band that I have ever seen and my guests cannot stop raving about them! If you want your wedding to be a show stopper and to be talked about for years to come, then I highly recommend "Jellyroll." Booking with BVT was the best decision we ever made. I can't wait to be able to use them again! Thanks again BVT!! You made our wedding a dream come true!
The Westin Philadelphia: Stephanie and Jon Scherr – August 31, 2014
Jellyroll truly set the tone for our wedding and made it a fun night for everyone. I have never seen a band get so many people out on the dance floor. Even family members that I have never seen dance were out on the dance floor having fun. As we went around to greet guests at the table we found that many of them were empty because everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. Kurt and BVT are true professionals and were great through the entire process. Every compliment we received regarding the wedding included a comment about how great Jellyroll was. Thanks to Kurt and the rest of Jellyroll!

Vie: Sari and Adam Fleischman – September 13, 2014
Thank you so much to you and the rest of the band for making our wedding a night to remember. Everyone had the best time and said it was one of the most fun weddings and we know that Jellyroll played a big part in this. Thank you again, and hope we can see you at a party soon!

Normandy Farms: Marissa and Kevin Telecki Wedding – August 30, 2014

One of our bridesmaids will be contacting you guys to try and book You guys for her wedding. Hopefully you are available and we can party with you again! Thank you again so much!!!!!!!

The Westin Philadelphia: Stephanie and Jon Scherr – August 31, 2014 – Bride’s Parents
Hello Kurt! It's days after Stephanie and Jon's wedding and I am still getting calls, emails and messages raving about Jellyroll! What a night! It's difficult to find the right words to express how thrilled we were with your music and performance from the ceremony until the last song. You and your amazing, unbelievably talented members kept the dance floor packed! Your energy and enthusiasm brought everyone to their feet and kept them there the entire night. I know that I rarely left the dance floor! We knew from your stellar reputation and videos that you would be terrific, but wow--we are still beaming! Our guests couldn't get over the range of talent showcased in Jellyroll.
Thank you, too, for helping to coordinate the timing of every aspect of the reception. The evening flowed perfectly and seamlessly. You and the Westin truly partnered to give Stephanie and Jon a flawless wedding.
Kurt, from our first conversation I knew we had chosen the perfect band to help celebrate the way we had always envisioned. Thank you so much for making all of our hopes come true.
Best wishes to all of your band members, to Dave and Valerie for such lovely music during the ceremony, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
With sincere gratitude and appreciation,
Susan & Barry Rabin
The Mansion on Main Street: Jessica and Matthew Sterling – August 3, 2014 – Bride
Jellyroll is seriously the best wedding band ever. They recently played at my wedding and we had a such a blast because of the amazing music! Everyone was on the dance floor, even people who do not usually dance. All our guests told us it was the most fun wedding they had ever been to and we have to thank Jellyroll for that! Kurt is fantastic to work with and really made sure that he had all the details down and understood exactly what we wanted. They even learned a few songs that we really liked so that they could be played at the wedding. We cannot say enough good things about them and we can't wait to see them at future events! We will recommend them to everyone we know!
The Westin Philadelphia: Abby and Ben Wanger – August 16, 2014
Kurt and the band were perfection from the first note to the last. The entire wedding was on their feet the whole time.
Excellent experience with BVT!
Hyatt at the Bellevue: Maureen and Jordan Glick Wedding – July 19, 2014
All the guests could talk about was how great our band was and how much they danced. Jellyroll sets the tone from the start of the ceremony and keeps the energy flowing until the end. The opera singing brought tears to some guests eyes during dinner. There is no other band that can compete with Jellyroll and their positive energy. Kurt is an amazing band leader and made the experience a blast!
The Mansion on Main Street: Jessica and Matthew Sterling – August 3, 2014
Our sincerest thanks for your incredible talent, warmth and enthusiasm in making another Sterling wedding even more special. Jellyroll is simply the best!!! Even people who do not normally dance couldn’t sit down all night. Your musical talent is inspiring, and all the guests commented about how the Band really made the affair a celebration to remember. Words could not express our gratitude for three very special wedding celebrations.
It’s been an exciting summer for us, as we have gone from one to four grandchildren since June, and the wedding was the culminating event. You certainly made the event a night we will never forget.
Thanks for three wonderful celebrations. We wish you the best.

Ballroom at the Ben: Lauren and Brent Talley – June 13, 2014
Kurt and band members of Jellyroll -
Thank you all so much for an amazing performance at our wedding reception at the Ben! We appreciated the outstanding level of customer service you provided in coordinating our songs and allowing Poppy Jacono to sing with you all. Again, it always means so much my family. Our guests had a wondergul time and we thank you all for that!
See you again at the next Jacano wedding, sooner rather than later!
Seaview Hotel & Golf Club: Julie & Kyle Wagner Wedding – July 12, 2014
I wanted to let you know that Jellyroll was phenomenal at our wedding! When we got engaged, my dad's first request was that we book you guys. It was absolutely one of the best decisions we made. Throughout the wedding, many guests came up to us to rave about how awesome you were, and afterwards we continued to hear how you guys made for a fantastic party. From getting Kyle to sing to me (not sure how that happened!) to the amazing Dancing Queen tribute to my mom, every minute of the party was spectacular, thanks to you. I couldn't have asked for a better day. THANK YOU!!!
Julie (Strassler) Wagner
Gulph Mills Golf Club: Anastasia & Robert Grillo Wedding – June 28, 2014
Kurt, Where do I even begin.....
THANK YOU for being the driving force behind the best night of our lives. EVERYONE is still raving about Jellyroll's performance, and many people the next day were talking about how sore their legs are from dancing. I have NEVER danced so much in my entire life, or had so much fun -- in fact, I danced most of my makeup off and had to go sit in the walk in fridge at Gulph Mills to cool down before I could come dance again 🙂 I knew you guys would be amazing, but I had NO idea how amazing. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
Also, Rob and I are trying to make sure we remember as many details of the night as possible (as you know, it tends to end up as one big whirlwind). Do you by any chance have a set list of the songs that you all played during our wedding? If so, I would LOVE a copy. Also, if you guys have a CD, just in general, we would love to purchase a copy.
Thank you again for everything -- I want to relive the night over and over and over again. Maybe I'll put on my dress and come to the next showcase 🙂 haha Please pass this along to the rest of the band members!
THANK YOU!!!! xoxo
Ballroom at the Ben- Erin Ramsey & Tom Lyons Wedding: April 26, 2014
Booking Jellyroll was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding! Kurt (the band leader and president of BVTLive!) is extremely professional, responsive, and easy to work with. Jellyroll lived up to their reputation as the best party band in the region - they are absolutely phenomenal and had our guests up dancing the entire evening! They played a variety of music genres that appealed to all age groups so everyone had a great time. Our guests are still talking about how amazing they were! Highly, highly recommended!
Hotel du Pont: Kelly & Miller Wedding – June 8, 2014
"Thanks for the terrific entertainment at Kara and Sam's wedding! Three weeks later, I am still receiving calls and emails from guests about their wonderful experience and sensational band at the wedding."
The Atrium at the Curtis Center: Christine & Pascuale DeFippis Wedding – May 9, 2014
Jellyroll was absolutely amazing. Every guest was on their feet dancing and we had so many compliments that it was the best band they had ever heard. Flawless from beginning to end. We can't thank Kurt enough for all his help planning and again I couldn't have asked for anything more - above and beyond our expectations!
The Atrium at the Curtis Center: Jenna & Robert Deluca Wedding – May 3, 2014
I just wanted to thank you and Jellyroll for being so great to work with and for being absolutely amazing at our wedding! I cannot tell you enough how many compliments we heard about the band! You had the entire wedding up and dancing and you are all so talented! Bob had a ball singing and it was just such a great time. Thank you again and thanks for being so accommodating!
The Atrium at the Curtis Center: Leslie & Jared Speicher Wedding – May 4, 2014
My family and I want to just thank you once again for making Leslies wedding at the Atrium an event for all of us to remember and cherish forever. I have been receiving calls from all over the country from our guests with compliment after compliment on how great the band was. Comments like the "Best We Ever Heard at an event," "where did you find such an incredible band?," "we couldn't stop dancing or get off the dance floor," "the singers were awesome," "what great voices," "what a horn section," "the violinist did Clapton incredible." Many compliments also about how happy and energetic they all looked like they were also having a good time. That goes a long way in addition to musical talent to make for a great time. Once again you have exceeded our expectations and made our family and friends joyous. Leslies hearing impaired friends also all loved the band. They could feel the beat and rhythm, and fed off Jellyroll's incredible energy and charisma.They loved the interaction with them. Once again thank you from me for letting me play with the band at my daughters wedding.It made my daughter very very happy, and me too. I was honored.
Once again you have earned the title of Phillys most Talented and Best Party Band.
Warmest Regards,Harry and Ann Gilbert, Jared and Lesleigh Speicher.
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
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.
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!
