Jellyroll Band Reviews

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 Water Works: Christie and Mike McGuire – May 22, 2016

We had our wedding on 5-22-16 at The Water Works, Philadelphia, and Jellyroll was AMAZING!! Kurt is awesome to work with and the whole entire band was great from start to finish!! Everyone keeps telling us how the band was the best band that they have ever heard!! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band. They truly are so talented and made our wedding night spectacular!!!

Normandy Farms: Kerri and Matt Elko – May 15, 2016

We used BVTLive! to book Jellyroll for our wedding. Jellyroll put on an AMAZING performance; they had everyone, even the grandmothers and great aunts, dancing up a storm! I highly recommend Jellyroll and BVTLive! to anyone hosting an event where you want your guests to have the most fun possible!

The Downtown Club: Alicia and Pat Biggs – April 30, 2016

After nearly two weeks of reflecting on one of the best days of our lives, we wanted to thank Jellyroll for everything that your team did to make it so special. Alicia and I were blown away by the responsiveness and professionalism from your team leading up to our wedding as it seemed no request or ask was too much. Then the actual wedding performance was phenomenal. We can’t tell you how many of our guests came up to us during and after the wedding to compliment how fantastic the band was. The range from pop to opera was just incredible and we are so lucky to have had you at our wedding.

We will highly recommend your team to everyone that we know and we truly hope that we get to work with you again in the future.

All the Best,

Pat and Alicia

We had the best time! Jellyroll was just unbelievable and we did not stop dancing for a single second. Not only are they professional but truly talented.

The Westin Philadelphia: Shelby and Justin Segermeister – April 16, 2016

Dean and I just wanted to say thank you as it was a PERFECT evening. The band was spectacular and the dance floor was packed all evening. It was EXACTLY what we had hoped for! Again, thank you.

Hi Kurt,

I can't thank you guys enough for making our day PERFECT!!! We had an amazing time and our guests can not stop raving about you guys. I knew you would be great but you guys really out did yourselves. A million thank you's from Amit and I!!! Please tell the rest of the band how thankful we are!

- Sunny & Amit


The easiest and best decision I made was choosing Jellyroll as our wedding band. They are amazing to work with and all our guests are still raving about how amazing they were. Jellyroll went above and beyond for us, even learning a song in another language for our first dance!!

- Sunny

The Union League of Philadelphia: Lauren and Kyle Fernley – December 19, 2015

Jellyroll was amazing and we can't imagine our wedding night without them! They were very professional and everyone was out of their seats on the dance floor all night long! We were married at Christmas time and they learned some Christmas songs for us that made the night! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a talented, fun, energetic band!

Philadelphia Marriott Downtown: Gary Hill, Producer for the 2016 American Heart Association Heart Ball – February 6, 2016


I wanted to let you know how great the band was and thank you for all of your cooperation on Saturday night. The dance floor was packed and the people that wanted to stay and enjoy the band did. Thanks for setting up quickly and getting started and for a wonderful successful evening. I look forward to working with you again.

The Atrium at the Curtis Center: Eleanor and Daniel Huyett – October 30, 2015

Using Jellyroll for our wedding band was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. The bandleaders are nice, friendly, responsive, and easy to work with. There was no need for us to micromanage the band at all prior to the event, because we had full confidence in their abilities. Their performance at our wedding could not have been better! They played such a wide variety of music. The tempo and transitions between songs were perfect. The dance floor was truly packed for the entire night. Our family and friends still can't stop talking about how amazing our band was. We cannot recommend them highly enough!

- Eleanor

Downtown Club: Malorie and John McLaughlin – October 23, 2015

"Jellyroll is fantastic! Kurt was wonderful to work with from the start and we couldn't have been happier. Jellyroll MADE our wedding. They learned all of the songs we requested for the ceremony and first dances and had the entire room dancing for the rest of the night! They definitely live up to their reputation and we are so thrilled they were a part of our wedding. I would strongly recommend!"

- Malorie

Vie: Christina and Eric Alulis – October 3, 2015

"We chose Jellyroll because we were told by many and diverse sources that they were the best. They still managed to exceed our highest expectations. They have a breadth and depth of talent that allows them to perform a seemingly unlimited endless repertoire. Our guests are still raving about this band. They kept the dance floor packed ALL night long. Kurt is the easiest guy you will ever work with."

- Constance (Mother of Bride)

The Atrium at the Curtis Center: Elizabeth and Will Milne – October 2, 2015

"Jellyroll was FANTASTIC at our wedding! All of our guests loved the band - they brought great energy to our wedding, the dance floor was never empty and everyone had a blast! Everyone we've reached out to about the wedding has said "Your band was AWESOME!!!" The music they played was great - from modern upbeat hits to the classics - they had everyone up and dancing, even the grandmothers! The band even learned my parent's first dance song and played it for their 30th anniversary dance! They did a fabulous job with all of our songs - our first dance, the father/daughter dance and the mother/son dance. I highly recommend Jellyroll to anyone! They were awesome - made me wish the night never ended!"

- Elizabeth (Bride)

The Atrium at the Curtis Center: Erica and Steve Penney – October 17, 2015

"It's hard to believe the wedding was already over a week ago! I cannot begin to thank you and the entire band for such an incredible night. People are still telling me how amazingly talented you guys are. It was truly a pleasure to have you share our special day with us and I want you all to know that you made our night even more special. I am so sad that the whole wedding is over because I had such a great time working with you. I honestly feel so honored to have had you guys perform at our wedding. As you know, I wanted you guys for my wedding before I was even engaged!! I am also so sorry I didn't get to say bye at the end of the night but I was dealing with our trolley that did not show up.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You guys were incredible and made the night what it was!

Hope to see you guys soon,


The Union League: Samantha and Sam Callaghan – October 24, 2015

I cannot say enough great things about Kurt Titchenell and Jellyroll (the BVTLive! band we chose). The band was INCREDIBLE and absolutely rocked the house (our venue was the Union League - they often perform there so it was great to know that they knew the ins-and-outs of setup/tear down, etc.) Besides being a super high-energy, professional, and amazing sounding band at the ceremony, Kurt was a pleasure to work with during the planning stages. As any bride-to-be knows, flexibility is key and you want to make sure that each vendor can deliver on their piece of your big day (and hopefully they are thinking about everything you might have missed to cover all bases!). Kurt did just that. He was responsive, professional, flexible and an all around great guy. We had requested a few songs that we didn't see on their standard list to choose from, but Kurt and the band learned all the songs and I have to say they sounded just as good as every wedding standard. You would have never known that the new song wasn't in their catalogue. You'll never regret going with Kurt - he won't steer you wrong!!

- Samantha

Downtown Club: Jessica and Ryan Schultz – September 19, 2015

Dear Jellyroll, 

Thank you so much for making the most amazing night of our lives completely perfect. You all were just simply incredible! Our friends and family can't stop talking about you! You rocked the house. We just wanted to say thank you for learning our songs we requested, making my dad's speech. Sensational! 

Thank you again,

Jess and Ry Schultz 

Hyatt at the Bellevue: Lindsay and Dan Coffey – September 12, 2015 (Mother of the Bride)

"Kurt and Jellyroll,

Many thanks for your fabulous performance at the wedding of Lindsay & Dan Coffey last weekend. I can't believe we never met; I looked for you at the end but you all disappeared too fast for me to give you my personal thanks. Everyone told me it goes by in a blink and they didn't exaggerate. But I couldn't let the opportunity slip away without sending you a note of appreciation. I cannot wait to see the video to see and hear more of your band as it really was all a blur but I know everyone loved the music and partied the night away. We all received so many compliments on how great the music was!!! Please extend my appreciation to the beautiful singer of "Time to Say Goodbye" (I hope that's the title but I'm sure you know what I'm talking about). It was such a magnificent surprise and a stunning rendition. I can only hope to be a guest at a future party where you play. You all helped make my daughter and new son's night perfection and a memory never to be forgotten. Many, many, many thanks. With much appreciation,

Lauren Toran"

Ballroom at the Ben: Molly and Patrick Gangemi – June 26, 2015 (Father of The Bride)

"This is truly an extraordinary group of at least 12 professionals. In all honesty, I don't know how they performed to the level they did, at the price they charged. This was the last of four weddings for my four daughters. This event was epic. The band engaged every wedding guest and held them on the dance floor for in excess of +four hours. I don't drink and I don't recall eating. I had more fun than I thought possible. In short, if they are available for your event. BOOK THEM. Do NOT hesitate. You won't regret it!!!! Wish I had another daughter."

- John (Father of The Bride)

Vie: Namita and James Powers – July 4, 2015

- Namita (Bride) 

ACE Conference Center: Samantha and Tom Banyar – June 20, 2015

"Jellyroll exceeded our expectations in every way possible. They are truly awesome and professional. Kurt was a pleasure to work with and they followed with exactly what we wanted and absolutely crushed every song they played. Thank you Kurt and Jellyroll for being the absolute best and contributing the the happiest and best day of our lives! Everyone could not stop talking about how awesome you were! Thank you a million times over!"

- Tom, Groom

Kurt - This is already overdue but as you can imagine we have been all over the place since our unbelievable wedding! WE WANT TO SAY, WOW, THANK YOU and JELLYROLL!!!!!!!
