Bear Creek Mountain Resort: Kirsten and Josh Block – May 1, 2022
We simply could not have had a better experience with BVTLive and Midnight Hour in planning our wedding. From the very beginning when we first went to a showcase, everyone was incredibly helpful in making sure we found the right band for our wedding and we booked with Midnight Hour that night (they are so talented!). BVTLive, specifically Bill, made what could have been an incredibly stressful process so smooth and easy. Within hours of reaching out to see if we could move to a new date in September, Bill made it happen and made sure we were still able to keep Midnight Hour. In case that wasn't impressive enough customer service, when we made the decision to reschedule yet again to next May (seriously, thanks for nothing COVID), Bill somehow worked his magic YET AGAIN and reserved Midnight Hour for us for next May, all within a few hours. Despite existing contracts, BVTLive has worked so much with us to adjust to this unprecedented situation. We couldn't be happier and we haven't even gotten to have the wedding yet! There is clearly no doubt that all the musicians at BVTLive are talented but working with them has gotten us so much more - amazing communication, customer service, and peace of mind. Can't wait till we all get to celebrate next year!

Front and Palmer: Ada and Max Feldman – August 21, 2021
Midnight Hour kept the dance floor packed! We booked Midnight Hour with BVTLive after seeing them perform at a showcase. Their energy was magnetic and you can tell they’ve been playing together for many years. Shavin, the band leader, was also proactive and really responsive the weeks leading up to our wedding. You could tell Midnight Hour are true professionals. They kept us and our guests dancing the whole night long, and helped set the pace of the night. Special shoutout to Paul, the Director of Sales, who helped us secure the band, and was flexible when we had to change the date of our original booking due to COVID.

Overbrook Golf Club: Sean and Caroline McGinn – July 9, 2021
Incredible band and outstanding people to work with!! Very responsive and helpful throughout planning and they did not disappoint on the wedding day
Every time we spoke with Pepper throughout the planning process, we left the conversation feeling totally at ease and trusting that he had everything under control. On the day of the wedding, every member of the band added to the experience and delivered, so much so that we've already had several friends reach out with questions about working with them. During a time where a lot was uncertain, we never worried about Midnight Hour and we cannot recommend them highly enough.

Lucien’s Manor: Melanie and Matt Bozzi – June 26, 2021
AMAZING! An Absolute Dream! Midnight Hour & BVT made our wedding even more amazing than we could've imagined. Our guests couldn't stay off the dance floor and they were a dream to work with. Cannot wait to dance along with them again in the future!!!

The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve: Nicole and Kevin Hanes – June 18, 2021
BVT Live and Midnight Hour made our wedding day! My husband and I and our wedding guests never left the dance floor. They played every song we had requested, and even took a song request or two the day of. We were recommended to use BVT from several family friends who had either used them for their own wedding or attended weddings where one of their bands played. One of the best features that BVT offers are their live showcases. We were able to listen to some of the bands we were interested in and then narrow it down from there. We originally booked The Strangers; however, in April 2020 we made the difficult decision to postpone our wedding due to Covid-19. Although The Strangers were no longer available for our new date, Paul at BVT helped us go with Midnight Hour. Since we had never heard them play, we were a bit nervous; we know now how crazy that was because Midnight Hour was INCREDIBLE. This proves that no matter what band you go with, BVT will pull through. My dad originally did not want a band, but now he admits that it was one of the best decisions we made. Book BVT for your wedding, and you won't regret it!

Vie: Mia and Vincent Loglisci – May 01, 2021
Beyond excellent!! Midnight Hour Was so amazing throughout the whole process of our original wedding day and then with the postponement because of Covid and even a venue change they were so reassuring and cooperative throughout the whole process! As a bride I was so stressed out and they made sure not to add to that stress they could not of been more understanding throughout this whole process! As for the day of my wedding I don’t think my dance floor was ever empty! My guests had the best time all night. The music was amazing and the vibe was just overall perfect! The band truly help make my day so unbelievably incredible!

The Farm at Eagles Ridge: Elizabeth and Sean Duckworth – April 17, 2021
Highly Recommend! Midnight Hour was everything we hoped for and more! From the start of the reception until the last call for the final shuttle, they had every guest on their feet and dancing! Multiple guests have reached out even after the wedding to tell us how great Midnight Hour was! We also recommend using them for your ceremony and cocktail hour musicians as they were absolutely tremendous! We are so happy we booked them to be part of our wedding celebration!
- Sean (Groom)
The Phoenixville Foundry: Ashely and Scott Fenton – December 21, 2019
Best Wedding Band!!! We hired Midnight Hour through BVT Live for our December 2019 wedding & their performance was just incredible!! They got things rockin' right out of the gate and maintained the same level of energy all night long until the very last song... making it a truly unforgettable experience! Our guests were blown away & Midnight Hour kept the dance floor packed! Our choice of first dance song wasn't on the band's list of songs, but it was no problem at all for them to learn it for us and they performed it beautifully & flawlessly. I truly cannot say enough great things about Midnight Hour & the BVT Live experience that they gave us on our wedding day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Hotel du Pont: Corinne and Patrick Valentine – October 19, 2019
They made our wedding PERFECT!
When my fiancé and I got engaged, we started planning immediately. We were convinced that we wanted to have a DJ to provide the music. We went back and forth with our parents and finally agreed to listen to a band showcase. When we heard Midnight Hour, we were sold IMMEDIATELY! They were talented, upbeat, and they were clearly having a blast. There’s nothing more appealing than someone who clearly loves what they’re doing. We signed a contract with them the next day!
As the wedding got closer, the band talked us through the timeline and made completely personal suggestions for us! They talked us through entrance music, how to keep things flowing, and provided their vast wedding expertise.
During the reception, everything flowed PERFECTLY, and it was no doubt due to the prowess and experience of Midnight Hour. Because of them, my now husband and I got to truly enjoy our wedding. People who attended have told us time and time again how FANTASTIC it was to have a band in general, and how amazing Midnight Hour was.
I couldn’t give them enough stars! Thank you Midnight Hour and BVTLive for helping give us our dream day!

Tyler Gardens: Shanna and Scott Shea – July 6, 2019
Such a fun group to have at our wedding! Shavin was so accommodating and really took the time to get to know us! He spoke with us on the phone multiple times to make sure everything was ready for our wedding day! We couldn’t have asked for a better band! Thank you!
- Shanna (Bride)
Grand Hotel: Caitlin and Phil Nardi – June 15, 2019
BVTLive and The Midnight Hour was one of the best things about our wedding day! We still have people talking about how much fun they had dancing to the band!
- Caitlin (Bride)
French Creek Golf Club: Pamela and Craig Cody – November 24, 2018
Midnight Hour was great!
Everything was great ... from the planning, long and varied song selections, and their performances. The dance floor was filled the entire night, with dozens of guests telling us the band made it the most fun they ever had at a wedding.
- Craig (Groom)
The Ballroom at the Ben: Courtney and John Campellone – October 26, 2018
We used Midnight Hour at our wedding and they were a major hit at the reception!! Shavin spent a lot of time prior to the wedding communicating all of our requests and wishes for the big day. He was very easy to talk with and worked around our work schedules. The band is extremely talented and learned a new song for the father daughter dance as well as a mash up surprise!!! The band is very professional, knows how to keep a party going, and dressed appropriately for a wedding! I remember looking around and seeing everyone was on the dance floor enjoying themselves. I would highly recommend Midnight Hour!!
- Courtney (Bride)
The Merion: Jaclyn and Matt Atkinson – October 20, 2018

- Jaclyn (Bride)
Loews Hotel: Katherine and Michael Fuschillo – October 6, 2018
We had Midnight Hour band and the Drew Nugent trio at my daughters wedding in October. Very easy to deal with n accommodating. Great, fabulous, professional. Everyone who attended the wedding is still talking about how great the band was. They sounded like the original artists, the dance floor was packed the whole night n we had the extra large dance floor! Love them n would get them again n again
- Maureen (Mother of the Bride)
Drexelbrook: Katie and Bobby Meigs – September 15, 2018
BVTLive – Great band(s), fun process. BVTLive was great! They were very helpful in selecting a band and going to their venue to watch bands and have drinks/food made the process enjoyable as well.
- Bobby (Groom)
The Desmond Hotel: Mary and Bryan Grimm – May 19, 2018
BVT and the band, Midnight Hour, was recommended by our photographer. Both BVT (Bill) and Midnight Hour (Pepper) we’re responsive and made sure the reception went exactly the way we wanted it to go- it was not driven by the band taking over the reception and that was very important to us. All attendees remarked about how perfect the evening went, largely due to the band. They sounded great and read the crowd perfectly to ensure the right mix of music.
- Bryan (Groom)
The Merion: Anna and Brian Lewis – April 28, 2018
I apologize this email is way late in responding, but we are just now wrapping our heads around this past weekend! We CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH!!!!!! You seriously made our night and our wedding would not have been half as amazing without you guys there! Having a band was our number 1 priority for the wedding, and we could not have picked a more perfect band for that vision of ours! So many people have complimented how amazing you guys were and we will continue to recommend you guys to everyone we know!!
Again, thank you so so much for making our night perfect! You were such a pleasure to work with! I appreciate all your time, quick responses and flexibility!
You guys are the BEST!!
- Anna and Brian (Bride and Groom)
The Down Town Club: Tara and Tim Niesen – January 27, 2018
We had the Midnight Hour Band - they are a great band in a City of great bands. Aside from the fact that they were just cool people who made the Wedding Reception a great party was their ability to keep all of the guests engaged throughout the affair. Cescaphe weddings tend to run longer than most so that can be a bit more challenging. Bottom line - I highly recommend you consider these folks.
- Ted Colella (Father of the Bride)
Congress Hall: Kendra and Jon Doveala – October 13, 2017
We had the pleasure of having Midnight Hour play at our wedding at Congress Hall in Cape May this past October and they were fantastic! The band leader, Duffy, was so incredibly accommodating and really understood what we wanted for our music and for the flow of the evening. The only complaint I heard all night from guests was that they couldn't find room on the dance floor because the band had every single guest on their feet dancing ALL night long! Midnight Hour was absolutely one of the best elements of our wedding and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in the future! Thank you!
- Kendra (Bride)
Pen Ryn Mansion: Katelyn and Mike Shinkle – October 7, 2017
Midnight Hour helped to create a party atmosphere that we were looking to have. The dance floor was always full and the mix of songs was perfect! So many of our guests have made positive comments about this fantastic band.
- Katelyn (Bride)
Gulph Mills Golf Club: Carly and Tom Bentley – September 30, 2017
Loved working with you!!! Your response time and concierge type service took the stress away from planning. I was worry free working with you!
- Carly (Bride)
These guys and gal are the real deal. Proof is in the pudding, the dance floor was filled all night long. And best of all they are not the typical "wedding band". They played a lot of diverse music and had at least three different vocalists. I highly recommend them. I really liked the way they handled the intros and managed the event as well. When they needed to rock out they did and when they were chill they were very cool. Loved it.
- Tom (Groom)
Springfield Country Club : Nancie and Richard DiPiero – September 16, 2017
WOW, we do not have words. We want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to each and every one of you for making our night as amazing as it was. The music was BEYOND words, wonderful! All of our guests were so impressed, as are we. We are still on cloud nine and can’t believe how quickly the night went but we are so happy that you guys were a part of it. Thank you again for all of your help and your wonderful talent. Simply the best band I have EVER heard.
-Nancie and Richard DiPiero
The band was extremely easy to talk to and work with from start to finish. Their goal was to ensure that they not only played what we wanted to hear, but to keep all of our guests on their feet the whole night. Mission accomplished!
- Francesca (Mother of the Bride)
Manufacturer’s Golf and Country Club: Elizabeth and Spencer Cameron – July 8, 2017
Midnight Hour was outstanding! They were perfect in every way. Our biggest goal for our wedding was for everyone to have fun (we love to dance) and Midnight Hour made it happen! We got so many compliments about how amazing the band was. Midnight Hour was easy to work with. They were flexible with the schedule I wanted, played all of our favorite songs, kept the party going all night, and MC'd the whole night. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Midnight Hour. Midnight Hour made our dream wedding come true. If you spend money on anything for your wedding, make it this band! They are the ones who make the wedding truly special. If there was higher than 5 stars, I would give it to Midnight Hour. There was not one single problem throughout the entire wedding planning process and the night. The whole planning process was stress free because Midnight Hour is so professional and personable. Thank you Midnight Hour we can't stop watching the videos and singing the songs!
- Elizabeth (Bride)
Brandywine Manor House: Erinn and Kyler Brown – July 2, 2017
All I can say is thanks. The music was great and everyone at the reception were thoroughly impressed by our choice of the band, they are professional and had everyone dancing, and the night was great for our daughter and son in-law. We will gladly be a reference for Midnight hour any time.
- Mark Menninger (FOB)
Do not hesitate if you are considering hiring any of the BVTLive bands for one of your events, do it now before it is too late! My wife and I hired Midnight Hour for our wedding reception and were absolutely blown away by their performance, professionalism and talent in handling the flow of the evening! Our guests (and us) were very pleased with their work and the dance floor was filled the entire night! Our wedding was not our first experience with a BVTLive band however, we had been to two weddings before ours with BVTLive bands performing and the result was the same: a truly fun wedding reception that the guests have and will talk about for years to come!
We hired Midnight Hour for our son's wedding last Saturday and we are SO glad we did. They were fabulous! Kept our guests on the dance floor for the entire reception. A special thank you for the wonderful job you did performing our mother/son off beat song selection...It was beautiful. Many, many compliments were shared about Midnight Hour!
- Mother of the Groom
We just wanted to thank you and the rest of Midnight Hour for making our wedding reception just perfect! You guys sounded absolutely amazing and we received numerous compliments about the music! Honestly, it went better than we could have ever imagined and we enjoyed every moment of it. We especially appreciated how you managed the flow of the evening – the Motown set after our first dance was such a hit! And your one band member (we apologize for forgetting his name) who introduced the dances and speeches was awesome in making sure those involved were ready before the dance/speech was announced. We really appreciated that. The music itself was really fantastic, you guys kept everyone on the dance floor until the very end. We wouldn’t have changed a thing.
Here is a review you can share if you would like:
Deciding to go with Midnight Hour for our wedding reception was one of the best decisions we made – we could not recommend them more highly! Communicating and planning with them was incredibly easy, and the band leader, Shavin, was excellent in following up on details with us and going over our timeline. Our reception was better than we could have ever imagined, largely in part because of Midnight Hour’s unbelievable talent. Our first dance, father-daughter, and mother-son dances will be ones we remember forever, and they had our guests on the dance floor all evening long! The music was amazing, and the way they handled the flow of the evening was flawless! The vocalists and musicians are top-notch and the band as a whole is a class act. We really cannot thank them enough!
Thank you again for everything! :)
Lily & Greg
Midnight Hour was simply amazing!!! Our guests to this very moment are still talking about how phenomenal they are. Seldom was there anyone sitting. They had the entire crowd up and dancing the night away, including my mother who is in a wheelchair. We twirled her around as she cried the entire time of happiness. I would highly recommend them for ANY event!! Simply the BEST!!!!!
