West Shore Country Club: Winters-McNicholl Wedding
April 15, 2006
For anyone considering the Midnight Hour band, let me tell you that this was the best investment of our entire wedding day.
Midnight Hour was not only professional and organized, but also went above and beyond any of our greatest expectations. The song selection was perfect. From Eminem to Stix and even Frank Sinatra, the music covered the tastes of all generations.
In an effort to make my day special, Midnight Hour learned several new songs which they played during our ceremony. Their rendition of Lady brought me to tears. Midnight Hour was even gracious enough to welcome me into a band member's home so that we could practice a duet for my husband. We will never forget my duet with Shavin.
To this day, our guests still rave about Midnight Hour. I have heard on several occasions, and I must agree that, "this was the best wedding band I have ever heard."

Philadelphia Art Alliance: Cleaver-Wright Wedding
December 17, 2005
I could not more stronglyrecommend Midnight Hour-- they made our wedding.
During the time we were planning our wedding, I often felt like I had to chase after some of our vendors, but not Midnight Hour. Shavin actually called me periodically throughout the planning process to make sure our plans were all coming together, and that was very comforting. Shavin was so easy to get in touch with, and reassured me that I did not have to worry about the band, that they would take care of everything... and they did!
When the big night arrived, everyone was so impressed with Midnight Hour. My godfather, who has been in the recording industry for decades, would not believe how good the band was. He asked for their card, and later commented to me, 'When he sang Fields of Gold' I had no idea it was not Sting!' Even people who I've never seen dance before were up on the floor. I just cannot explain how good they were. We couldn't have asked for more.
Nothing could have been a better endorsement for the happiness and joy of our wedding day than the enthusiastic performance of those very talented musicians. And they were so nice too. At the end of the night, and now a few months later, their music remains one of the defining elements to a day we will remember with so much happiness for the rest of our lives.

The Golden Inn: Criniti-Panzarella Wedding, September 24, 2005

Hiring Midnight Hour was the best investment we made for our wedding. They totally set the fun tone that we wanted for the entire reception and had everyone- from our 4 year old nephew to our 80-something old aunts and uncles- dancing the entire time. Midnight Hour maintained high energy throughout the reception and interacted well with the crowd. They learned three new songs for us, including our first dance, an 80's tune, and a 60's song, and all of them sounded great. They followed all of our wishes exactly, from what we wanted to be called during announcements, to the timeline of the reception, to the list of songs that we did and didn't want them to play (that was very important!), and our guests loved being able to sing some songs with the band. Months later, we continue to get raves from our guests, that they were one of the best bands they've ever heard. Thanks, Midnight Hour, for an awesome time!

The Meadows: Horvath-Matthews Wedding, June 11, 2005

You guys were AWESOME!!! I have never been to a wedding where the whole dance floor chanted "one more song" until it was my own. I can't say enough about the band, we couldn't have been happier. Guests asked if we had a recorded wedding song which was "Feels like home" and the truth is, it was the band, they're that good. If anyone is looking for a band that will keep the crowd moving from minute one, look no further, it is this band. We had a great time and appreciate all of the work that went into our wedding.

Thank you so much for everything. Everyone had an amazing time and kept raving about our band. The songs were great, and I never wanted to leave the dance floor. The songs you learned especially for us were also really great (we were actually a little shocked by how well the band learned them!). Also, playing back-up for my brother-in-law's song was perfect. People were coming up all night and saying how much they loved the band, and even compared Midnight Hour to a New York band. Your female singer, Joanne, was fantastic, as all of you were. I had so much fun singing with Tiny! I also appreciated you guys playing La Bamba with my cousin and friend singing- it was great to be able to have our guests involved in all the fun. My parents and in-laws keep saying how impressed they all were with you guys as well as all the guests I have spoken to. You guys really made the wedding, and like I said, I couldn't leave the dance floor. And I must say, I thought it was really cool that the staff was having trouble serving dinner because no one would stop dancing.
Thanks again for everything. We really appreciated and enjoyed having you to complete our wedding day.

You guys are simply the best!! Thank you so much for making our wedding on June 3, 2005 at Brantwyn so special. Everyone raved about the band and how awesome you were.

We just got back from St. Maarten...............it was fantastic!
On behalf of not only myself and Tracy (this includes everyone I have spoken with since our reception).........The Midnight Hour Band's performance was EXCEPTIONAL! You guys deserve much of the credit for making our wedding "Perfect". As you know, we spent countless hours searching for bands and finally made the decision (after listening and viewing a performance in person) to have Midnight Hour perform on our special day. You guys certainly did not surprise me because I knew that your performance would be top notch. Tracy and I will always cherish and admire the hard work and dedication your group committed to in mastering "Georgia On My Mind"........it was truly an outstanding and everlasting moment. I cannot say enough about you and the group. Not only are you guys tremendously gifted and perform miles above your competition...........you have great character and are noticebly genuine.

Thank you again for your great performance at our wedding. The intros were great, and so many of our guests commented on how great you were and how good a time they had dancing. I apprecaite all the work you put into it, and hope you guys enjoyed it too.
Paxton Hollow: Beswick-Colonnello Wedding, April 30, 2005
April 30, 2005
The wedding was great! in fact, whenever our wedding is mentioned the first thing that rolls off the tongue of my guests is how AWESOME the band (you guys of course) played. Two of our friends have since tried booking you for their weddings but you already had other engagements on their wedding dates.
Words can't express how you and the group turned the night into "party time"! It was truly more than I could have imagined. My husband, who was originally skeptical of having a band, ended the evening with a different point of view.
Sorry for gushing over your performance like this, but tell the group they are worth every penny, and more! Thanks again for helping to make my special evening an amazing time to remember.
Paxton Hollow: Beswick-Collonello Wedding, April 30, 2005
April 30, 2005
To all the brides-to-be out there:
My wedding was April 30, 2005. Hiring Midnight Hour for my wedding reception was one of the best decisions I made.
First, let me tell you if you are looking for an evening to dance and party the night away the Midnight Hour is your band! They had my guests up on their feet all night dancing. It looked like a nigh club with the dance floor packed and no one sitting down! The music will get even those who don't like to dance up and moving (I have pictures of non-dancers at my wedding, and they're dancing! ha!). Their performance is outstanding. I would pay double their price to have them play again!
Second, Shavin is very professional and will go to great lengths to make sure everything is to your liking. He is very accomodating and works hard to make sure you're happy. The band members, like Shavin, strive to make your evening memorable.
Third, their performance was so unbelieveable that I still have people telling me that the band was amazing, and my reception was the best they ever attended. Most of their other comments were added onto their comments about the Midnight Hour (e.g., "oh, and the food was good, too").
I hope you decide to book them because you won't regret it. I was truly happy with their variety of music, energy, and professionalism. Trust me, it's one investment worth adding to your special day.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding. It was outstanding!! Thank you for learning those few songs for us-- it meant alot to us-- especially Landslide with my dad. I must have had at least 60 people tell me personally how great you guys were. We are so happy that you were recommended to us!! Thanks for the Bruce-- that made my day!

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!

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! :)

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!!!!!
