The Terrain at Styers: Caroline and James Boyda, December 10, 2023

The entire process was so easy. Being able to watch bands perform live at their show case was so helpful, and we were able to book our band the next day! Everything from payments to planning was seamless and they reached out exactly when they said they would. Our wedding was perfect! The band brought the same energy and talent we saw at the show case, and they really made the whole wedding extra special. They learned our first dance song, and they sounded even better than recording, so professional and went above and beyond. I knew a live band was on our “must have” list and they did not disappoint! Would book the Midnight Hour time and time again.

Terrain at Styer’s: Caroline and James Boyda, December 10, 2023

The single best add to our wedding was the live band. I knew the energy would be unmatched, and when we first heard Midnight Hour we knew they’d be perfect. Every guest was so impressed, half the time they thought the song was a recording! The highlight was our first dance. The band learned it for the occasion, and when I say they sounded even BETTER than the original Frank Sinatra version I mean they were FABULOUS!!! I would hire them time and time again. If you’re on the fence about live band it IS worth it, and BVTLive! will provide.

The Waterfall: Maggie and Nick Spica, October 20, 2023

BVTLive! was incredible! Justin was so helpful during the booking phase, he was able to answer all of my questions.

We went to a few showcases before we could decide on a band, they were all amazing! We ended up booking Midnight Hour and our guests haven’t stopped complimenting them! My husband actually does audio visual for work and his company’s owners and co workers have all commented how amazing they sounded (so that’s a huge compliment!)

The Reeds at Shelter Haven: Anna and James Magirl, September 30, 2023

Midnight Hour (through BVTLive!) played at our wedding and did a fantastic job. They were easy to work with, willing to learn new songs for us, the dance floor was energetic all night, and there were no issues or headaches. Highly recommend using them if you are looking for a band to play at your wedding!

The Warrington: Layna and Phillip Piotrowski, June 17, 2023

Midnight Hour truly made our wedding day special and memorable for all. Shavin was so easy to work with and helpful with song choices, entrance ideas, and the overall flow of the evening. The band kept everyone on their feet, and even nailed our special request song!! I would recommend booking this band to any future bride & groom for a guaranteed special night.

The Lucy: Lauren and Kenny Rentz – May 13, 2023

We booked The Midnight Hour through BVT Live after being blown away by their performance at a showcase and we could not have made a better decision! The Midnight Hour and Band Leader Shavin' Duffy were so accommodating (even working with me to get on stage and play with them) and put on an unforgettable show helping make our special day that much better! We will recommend The Midnight Hour to anyone looking for a wedding band.

The Flander’s Hotel: Amy and Billy Gormley – March 25, 2023 

The Midnight Hour Band is the ultimate wedding band! We had met them at another wedding, instantly fell in love and had our date booked before the night was over. Shavin and his crew were amazing to work with- excellent communicators, accommodating and EXTREMELY fun! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without them, and we were so thrilled with our decision to book them- our venue even noted they were the best band they have ever had for a wedding! We hope to party with them again one day! Thank you again Midnight Hour for the best night!

Hotel du Village: Christie and Tyler Fleischut – December 31, 2022

The Midnight Hour Band is a 10/10. I couldn’t recommend this band more. Shavin, the band leader is so professional and responsive. Our guests were dancing all night long. There is truly no other band greater than them. You won’t be disappointed if you book them for your wedding or event.

- Christie (Bride) 

Pen Ryn Mansion: Tiffany and Ian Campbell – December 16, 2022

Midnight Hour is AMAZING!! We were lucky enough to have midnight hour play for our December wedding and they kept the dance floor packed all night with hit after hit. Shavin was so accommodating during our touch base calls and made sure we were fully comfortable with the order of events and announcements. I am SO happy with our choice to work with them, I cannot recommend them enough!

Greystone Hall: Ali and Russ Tindall –  December 3, 2022

I couldn’t have asked for a better band! We worked with BVT live for our wedding and we were beyond thrilled with the experience. Justin was attentive, helpful and responsive throughout the entire process. We attended the showcase at the Ardmore Music Hall and were blown away by the talent in each band. There was not one band we wouldn’t have been happy with. We ended up deciding to book Midnight Hour and it was the best decision we could have made. Pepper was so helpful with planning our big day and made us feel so comfortable. We really just felt so at ease and trusted them from the beginning. The music was amazing. All of our special dance songs were perfect and throughout the night almost all of our guests were on the dance floor. The biggest compliment we have received from majority of our guests was how amazing the band was. 10/10 isn’t high enough of a rating for our experience with both BVT live and Midnight Hour. They really were the heart of the wedding and we are so grateful!

River House at Odette’s: Colleen and Joseph Wolk – October 30, 2022

Must have Wedding Band!!! BVT Live was a dream to work with and Midnight Hour was absolutely AMAZING. They kept the energy up and everyone dancing the entire night of our wedding! All music requests were met and the band made our reception run smoothly! They were punctual, kind, and so much fun. Our guests had a blast and we are still getting compliments 4 months after our wedding!

- Colleen (Bride)

River House at Odette’s: Lara and Michael Jackson – October 22, 2022

Top of the line every time! BVT Live was amazing for getting all their bands together in one spot to let use get a taste of all the bands in one night. Midnight Hour was amazing and crushed every song and that was what made us choose them. They also played Block Of Cheese at our wedding and it you don't know what that is I suggest you find out! What an amazing group I cant say enough about them.

- Lara (Bride)

Old Mill Rose Valley: Keelyn and Andrew Keeler – October 8, 2022

We had Midnight Hour play at our wedding and I don't think there are enough words to explain how incredible they were! My husband LOVES 70s-80s rock, so finding a band that could execute some of the songs he wanted to be played was at the top of our list when we began wedding planning. BVT was so helpful with providing several bands that would be able to play what he wanted, while also keeping our budget in mind. When we met with the band director to discuss our music for the big day, the entire process was seamless. Hearing his excitement for the songs we were asking to be played made the anticipation for the big day grow. We have been married for over a month now, and we are STILL getting incredible feedback from our guests about how amazing Midnight Hour was! They kept the dance floor full, and the party rocking all night long! Book Midnight Hour you will NOT be disappointed!!!

American Swedish History Museum: Siobhan and Patrick McCool – August 20, 2022

Midnight Hour (via BVTLive) was an absolutely incredible wedding band. The band leader (Shavin, aka "Pepper") worked closely with us to understand what we were lookin for in the performance. The band provided live entertainment throughout the event (Including live guitar during the Ceremony) and sounded great throughout. I would highly recommend them to any one looking for a professional performance, but with more of a rock/fun vibe to the event.

Ballroom at Ellis Preserve: Thalia and Eric Frank – June 26, 2022

Best Wedding Band! Shavin and his band, Midnight Hour, was the best band we could have ever asked for. They were extremely talented, energetic and kind from start to finish. We can't thank them enough for bringing our dream wedding to life!

- Eric (Groom)

Owings Mills, Maryland: Sophie and Paul Neumann – June 12, 2022

You guys were sooo amazing! You made our daughter’s wedding so special! We can’t thank you enough! You kept that dance floor packed the entire night ! Every age group dances the night away! You guys are incredible musicians and people! Thank you for putting it all out there for us!
Love from the whole family!

Ashford Estate: Rebekah and Bill Anusky – May 20, 2022

Midnight Hour was extraordinary! Approaching the wedding, communication was great. On the night of the wedding, they truly delivered and made our night special. Our dance floor was packed from the first song to the last. We had a blast interacting with the band and didn’t want the night to end. Our family and friends are still talking about how amazing Midnight Hour was!! They read the crowd well and played a great variety of music. They even learned a song for my husband and MIL’s first dance which was so kind and much appreciated. We hired them for live music during cocktail hour too— that was a beautiful touch and big hit as well!

- Rebekah (Bride)

Grand Hotel: Kristen and Daniel Daly – April 2, 2022

We have nothing but good things to say about Midnight Hour. I can’t wait to plan something to use them again. I would absolutely recommend them for your event. You will not be disappointed. They kept our guests dancing all night and they played a variety of songs for everyone. Everyone came up to us and said how amazing the band is, they are the real deal.

- Kristen (Bride)

Bohemia River Overlook: Pam and Barry Willoughby – October 9, 2021

Midnight Hour was great to work with. They provided a huge library of songs with which to construct a playlist for the evening. They were willing to learn (and did it better than the original) our first dance song. They set an atmosphere of FUN that carried through the evening without being so loud that people at talks couldn't talk. Volume was perfect and the mood the set was off the charts!

- Pam (Bride)

Congress Hall: Stephanie and Matt Bodnar – September 18, 2021

Best Band Ever! Midnight Hour is absolutely the best band to have at your wedding! They had everyone on the dance floor all night long and play such a wide variety of music. They sound amazing and they are wonderful work with. Look no further for a band, book Midnight Hour for your wedding!!

- Stephanie (Bride)

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.
