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!

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!

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.

The Olde Bar: Bridget and Will Cases – May 20, 2017
You HAVE to book with BVT Live! We knew we wanted a band and after the live showcase, we didn't waste a minute booking! EVERY one of our wedding guests commented on how fantastic they were and I don't think people sat for more than a few minutes. Dancing all night long! Shavin & the band Midnight Hour are top notch! You won't be disappointed!
- Bridget (Bride)
Cescaphe Ballroom: Maggie and Ryan Matheson – Mach 25, 2017
We had Midnight Hour at our wedding and we were beyond thrilled! Several guests told us that they loved the band at the wedding and for days after. We were also so excited because they learned to play two special songs for us as well, which were amazing! Thanks again Midnight Hour, you kept the dance floor full throughout the night!
- The Matheson's
The Mendenhall Inn: Angeline Wedding – January 21, 2017
Midnight Hour did an amazing job at our recent wedding on Jan. 21, 2017! Their responsiveness, professionalism, suggestions and energy were fantastic. They are very detail oriented and after detailing our event, we had a timeline to keep everyone on schedule. Their wide variety of music and instruments did not go unnoticed. Our guests are still talking about how GREAT the band was. They kept the dance floor full all night long. If you are looking for a great band for your event, we would highly recommend them. If you are not, we highly suggest you do try working them into your budget. It is well worth it!!!
Union League of Philadelphia: Member Event – November 5, 2016

I hope to work with you again in the future.
I wish you a happy and healthly holiday season.

Holly Hedge Estate: Jess and Pat Purdy – October 29, 2016
Midnight Hour performed during both the cocktail hour and also the reception at our October 29 wedding at HollyHedge Estate. Both Bill Handy, our agent at BVTLive, and Shavin Duffy, the band lead for Midnight Hour, were incredibly helpful and collaborative throughout our planning process. Their guidance and seasoned experience were invaluable as we configured our wedding timeline and music selection.
For our wedding, we knew we wanted instrumental classics during cocktail hour and lots of dancing during the reception, loaded with Motown hits as well as classics from the 80s and 90s. Shavin understood our taste and helped us curate the perfect song list to ensure our guests would never leave the dance floor.
On our wedding day, Midnight Hour were consummate professionals. They were amazing MCs, friendly, fun and courteous with every one of our guests, professionally (and stylishly) dressed, and extremely easy to work with. Since they have their own dedicated sound technician (who also managed audio for our ceremony), setup was seamless and we had zero audio issues during our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Shavin and his team communicated with us and our planners throughout the night to check in and keep us on timeline, and I appreciated their nimbleness and flexibility whenever plans inevitably shifted over the course of the evening.
Now to the fun part: the music. we knew we loved Midnight Hour the first time we saw them in Ardmore -- and they did not disappoint on our wedding day! From our first dance when Shavin sang one of the best renditions of Elvis' "Can't Helping Falling in Love" we've ever heard to the final song, "Higher and Higher," their combination of rhythm, brass and male / female vocalists had our guests dancing all night and raving for weeks after the event. What is evident from the start is that this band enjoys playing together -- and that makes all the difference when creating a truly joyous atmosphere. We're so happy that Midnight Hour could be part of our wedding and are grateful for all that Shavin and his team did to ensure it was a fun event.
- Jess and Pat
Everyone at BVT was fantastic -- from Bill Handy, our agent, to Pepper, our band lead. We could not have had a better experience.
Seaview Country Club: Amie and Chris Lyon – October 22, 2016
Midnight Hour and everyone at BVTLive,
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! We have not stopped getting compliments and questions about you guys! We thought our wedding was the best day ever and are confident our guests had fun because of you! Thank you for playing the shout twice – one of my favorite memories of the night! We cannot thank you enough, we hope you had fun because you guys killed it!
Best, Amie & Chris
The Union League of Philadelphia: Trang and Wayne Schuh – October 16, 2016
In my opinion there are 2 critical ingredients to make a truly memorable wedding reception. Number 1 is a Beaming Bride and second, a great band ... Bride & Band. BVTLive was great to help with finding our perfect band with no stress and no hassles. We would highly recommend the band The Midnight Hour ,,,, they rocked the entire night ,,, great play selection - great voices - great sound - incredible energy
Llanerch Country Club: Lily and Greg Walsh – October 15, 2016
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! 🙂

King Mills: Erin and Isaak Ross – September 17, 2016
We absolutely loved Midnight Hour for our wedding reception! The band was wonderful to work with throughout the wedding planning process and was very accommodating and reassuring that our event would be a blast! They were even willing to learn new songs for our specialty dances. They put on an amazing show during the reception that people are still talking about! They played a variety of music that was great for all ages and kept people on the dance floor all night. I would highly recommend Midnight Hour as they made my wedding reception far better than I could have imagined.
Maywood Greens: Anita and Scott Grau – July 17, 2016
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!!!!!
Cescaphe Ballroom: Ali and Will Garner – May 14, 2016
Midnight Hour was an awesome band - so talented, our guests raved over them!!
The Ballroom at the Ben: Carmella and Donnie DeMaise Wedding – March 19, 2016
My name is Donnie and my wife and I had the pleasure of booking Midnight Hour as our band for our fairytale wedding at the Ballroom at the Ben on March 19, 2016. Midnight Hour was an amazing band, they played everything we had picked on our ballet which was great. Pepper the lead singer was a pleasure to work with and also very helpful. One of the things I liked the most is how they got all of our guests on the dance floor and they really made our night a night to remember. We highly recommend using BVTLive for your wedding!

Merion Golf Club: Meredyth Heppe and Dan Waters – October 10, 2015
"I wanted to drop you a note about the experience we had with Midnight Hour at my daughter’s wedding. HOME RUN!!!!! They were absolutely fabulous and a great addition to a perfect event. They were engaged with the party and played music that appealed to the ENTIRE audience, especially the dancing audience. I have rarely, if ever, seen a dance floor packed from beginning to end. It truly was a sight to behold and a credit to Midnight Hour. They had everybody on their feet enjoying a beautiful evening while at the same time navigating and managing the time for the regular wedding celebratory fanfare, i.e. wedding party entrance, toasts, etc. Again, I can’t tell you enough, how much the ENTIRE crowd enjoyed the music of Midnight Hour. If they ever need a reference, I know about 200 people who would be happy to oblige.
Blair Heppe, Father of the Bride"
The Radisson Valley Forge: Deanna King and Gerard Campbell Wedding – October 3, 2015
My wife and I were married on 10/3/15 and The Midnight Hour played at our wedding. Everyone RAVED about the quality of the band, their set list, their guest interaction, and the overall atmosphere they created. The band leader Pepper and I worked together about a month before the wedding to craft a set list and create "moments" throughout the ceremony to make things like the parent dances and garter tosses truly memorable experience. A first-class band and a first-class talent agency that did business in a first-class way. HIGHLY recommended. 5/5 stars.

Cork Factory Hotel: Delaney Janson & John Carpenter Wedding – February 7, 2015
I (we) cannot say enough great things about the band, Midnight Hour! We used Midnight Hour for our daughter's wedding seven years ago and loved them then. We were fortunate to have them agree to play at our youngest daughter's wedding on February 7th of this year. The band were incredible and we heard many, many positive remarks from our guests. Our daughter was concerned that the band wouldn't be true to the original recording of the song they chose for their first dance. Well, she was thrilled with the music and that song in particular! Shavin, the bandleader was so easy to work with and went out of his way to make sure our requests were honored. The band was so professional and so much fun! They played a wide range of music, including very current songs, that appealed to guests of all ages. Having Midnight Hour provide the music for both weddings was a great decision. You will not be disappointed!

Brigalias: Keri Kryder & Mark Boone Wedding – November 15, 2014

Spring Mill Manor: Corrine Cattell & James Price Wedding – October 4, 2014
"The Midnight Hour Band made my wedding sooooo much fun! They had everyone dancing before dinner even started. They walked me through the schedule of the evening a number of times before my big day and made me feel completely at ease. They took care of everything and the night just flowed smoothly. They were friendly, well dressed, and full of energy. I would recommend them to anyone and actually have recommended them to two future brides in the last month since my wedding. I love you guys! Thank you again!"
- Corrine, Bride
