Jellyroll Band: Best Wedding Band in Philadelphia
Read what our clients have said about their Jellyroll event experience!
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
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!
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!!!

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

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

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!!
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
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.

The Atrium at The Curtis Center: Sunny and Amit Ravani – March 26, 2016
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!!
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!
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!"
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."
