Jellyroll Band Reviews

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"

"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."

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!"

National Constitution Center: Lindsey and Josh Gerngross – May 23, 2015

"We just wanted to thank you for such an amazing wedding. You guys sounded absolutely fantastic. We were completely blown away. Also, tons of people came up to us saying how awesome you guys were. The intros with the chili peppers songs were perfect! We were so impressed and a bunch of the guests commented about how cool that was too. Again, THANK YOU! Please pass on our thanks to the entire band for such an amazing night and for learning the songs we requested."

Vie: Blair and Jake Dawson – January 24, 2015

Jellyroll was Phenomenal!!!! Our guests are still raving about how amazing the band was. Kurt was so great to work with prior to the event and all the requests I made were executed perfectly the day of the wedding. The music was amazing, the band members were fun and interactive with our guests and really set the mood for a wonderful evening. Thank you for making everything so easy and so perfect. I would recommend Jellyroll to anyone looking for the perfect wedding band, they were worth every penny!

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!

Kurt -

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 BVTLive! was the easiest part of our wedding planning! Kurt, the owner of BVTLive! 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 BVTLive! 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 BVTLive! 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 BVTLive! 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!

- Stephanie & Jon

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

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.

With thanks,

Helene and Gerry Sterling
