The guests at our wedding are still talking about how fabulous the music was. Your musicians and vocalists were great. You did a great job of pacing the evening so it felt like a really fun party… I have never been to a party of any type where the people did not stop dancing!

Sid Miller Dance Band- AMAZING
Sid Miller Dance Band literally made our wedding the best day of our lives. I cannot say enough great things about them. I am still having guests call me and tell me that our band was unbelievable- the best they have ever heard. When people remember our wedding, they will remember: 1) how happy my husband and I were all day and 2) how amazing our band was. Everyone was dancing all night. It was so much fun.
Prior to the wedding, Sid invited my husband and I into his home to craft the perfect wedding playlist, as well as go over the general ambiance we were going for. We had amazing conversations with Sid. He is a creative genius. He had every minute of that night mapped out. So extremely organized.
I asked him if my Uncle Gene (who was previously in a band) could play "Play that Funky Music" with the band, to which he said yes. I later found out the drummer in SMDB was left handed and my uncle was right handed so it would not work out. And then on the wedding day BAM, he and my uncle surprised me and switched the drums around to accompany my Uncle Gene and they ROCKED the house. Everyone went insane. It was the best surprise ever. I get goosebumps thinking back on it.
You just don't find the the quality of SMDB with any other band out there. And you certainly don't get the energy on that dance floor and ambiance with a DJ. I know that for sure.

Kimmel Center Hamilton Rooftop: Mary and Paul Imbesi – February 22, 2019
If you want a great wedding, use this band!
The Sid Miller Band made our wedding a truly amazing night! They had every single guest out on the dance floor the whole night and played an amazing combination of our requested songs and songs that we didn't even know we should have suggested. We want to go to a wedding where they are the band so we can enjoy them again. Sid and team are so great and I could not imagine our wedding without them!

The Union League of Philadelphia: Susan and Alex Oman – December 29, 2018
We chose Sid Miller Dance Band for our wedding reception after hearing numerous positive reviews and attending a BVT showcase - Looking back at our wedding day, we could not be happier with our selection.
We met with Sid a couple of weeks prior to our wedding to plan out each and every detail of the reception. Sid was kind, insightful, and provided recommendations on song selections and timelines for the whole reception.
The night of the wedding reception was perfect - from the cocktail hour, introductions, first dances, speeches, and the overall dance party, everything went exactly as planned. They had our guests on the dance floor the entire night and the way they interacted with the guests on the dance floor is unlike other wedding bands I've seen in the past. Sid Miller Dance Band is an extremely talented group and they are able to accommodate all types of crowds and music selections.
Sid and his team truly made our wedding reception the best time ever and we cannot thank them enough for the great job they did. We highly recommend Sid Miller Dance Band for anybody looking for true professionals to perform at their wedding.

Winterthur: Morgan and Richard Winter – (Pre-Wedding) December 28, 2018
Thank you so much for your kindness in helping us secure a band. Morgan and Maggie were blown away by Sid Miller. Thanks so much for the amazing deal, how thoughtful of you to help us out in a big way. We enjoyed our evening listening to the bands the past two Monday nights. What an outstanding venue to showcase so much talent. I will highly recommend bands from BVTLive!
Thank you again,
- Lisa Daugherty (Mother of the Bride)
Three words - amazing, amazing, amazing - from the first note to the last. The Sid Miller Band is exceptional! The various array of genres played to perfection captured each moment of the reception. The dance floor was ALIVE and ROCKING all night; we did not want the evening to end. Sid Miller's band of musicians are very talented from the vocals to the electric guitar solos - we felt that we were at a concert with all of our favorite artists, not a wedding reception. Sid Miller's professionalism and avid knowledge of how to plan the flow of the evening is flawless. Guests still rave about the band and ask, "Where did you find them?" Our answer BVT LIVE - no reception is complete without The Sid Miller Band! - Richard and Morgan Winter

The Union League of Philadelphia: Lauren and Nick Malatestinic – December 1, 2018

Ballroom Ellis Preserve: Maria and Stephen DiPietro – November 17, 2018
Great Experience from Start to Finish!
Working with BVT Live and The Sid Miller Dance Band was a great experience! From the initial showcase at the Ardmore Music Hall to the actual wedding, it was an excellent experience; both working with and listening to the band perform. Sid is a consummate professional, and provided great suggestions during the planning phase of our wedding. All of our guests were blown away by the band, and mentioned that it was the best wedding band they have ever experienced. If you want the best for your wedding, look no further than BVT Live and The Sid Miller Dance Band!

Lower Merion Golf Club: Catherine and John Powell – October 20, 2018
Sid Miller is THE best dance band, book him now!!
I want to thank you for the fabulous entertainment you provided at our wedding on Saturday. Your band is the best dance band I have ever heard— and I went to 13 weddings last year!! I know I am biased, but that was the best party I have ever been to with THE BEST music. You played every song we wanted to hear. It brought us so much joy to dance to our favorite music with friends and family.
Dancing with my college roommates to “Walking on Broken Glass” brought back some of my favorite college memories and also made beautiful new wedding memories!! My brother was so pumped to hear “Take Me To the River.” It was all perfect.
Our guests were blown away by your band. Two young men split their pants on the dance floor. I’ve attached photographic evidence of this. Please share this email with your band. They are all stars and I hope I get to see them perform again soon. I’m recommending you to any/all engaged folks I know!!!

Manor House at Commonwealth: Grace and Matt Wiatrowski – October 13, 2018
Ann and I want to sincerely thank you very much for the beautiful playing at Grace's reception this past weekend. It was a spectacular evening and everyone raved about your band. The dance floor was full from the first dance forward. I hope the crowd's energy and excitement also made your night more enjoyable. Pure Magic.
There are many things to plan for a wedding as you know but the music and venue were the two most important to me. When we first started talking about the music, Ann & I definitely agreed that we wanted live music vs a DJ. Our initial plan was to get a band who had at least one horn and in the $8K range budget wise. When we heard you play at the show case with 12 members and four horns it really impressed us and totally changed our plans and we went with the premium band. This decision was the best investment decision we made with all. of the things we did for the wedding.
You and your band were classy to our guests and really made the evening one we will never forget. We are so happy we had the opportunity to have you as our band and we will tell anyone getting married about you and write a great review on your website.
Thank you again from Ann, Grace, Matt and myself for a great mix of music and a night we will never forget.
- Gerry Gallagher (Father of the Bride)
I just wanted to say thank you again for such an extraordinary wedding. Matt and I just returned from our honeymoon yesterday, so I apologize for this delay. Your band is absolutely exceptional, and we have been getting so many texts and calls about how amazing you were. You gave me the wedding of my dreams and I am so truly appreciative, you have no idea. Our wedding song "Strangers in the Night" sounded PERFECT, and Matt and I can't explain how much it meant for you to learn it (and kill it!); we can imagine how much time and effort it takes to learn new songs.
You are all so talented and I can't imagine a more perfect reception. Your band set the tone for the entire night. Please thank all of your band members for me, as I didn't get a chance that night.
I hope you all have a wonderful fall season, and wonderful holidays with your family! Thank you so much again!

Bay Head Yacht Club: Susan and Rob Brown – September 28, 2018
As an Event Planner around the world for 40 years, I have some experience in the industry, which is why I know that The Sid Miller Band is the BEST Wedding Band anywhere! Best Wedding I have ever attended, glad it was mine, and I give The Sid Miller Band all the credit! The band members become part of the wedding attendees and include the attendees in each moment! Don't even look at another band, just call BVT Live and book this band, hurry before your date is gone!
- Susan (Bride)
Sid Miller Band a huge hit! BVT handled everything very professionally! Very happy with BVT and Sid Miller Band! Entire experience was wonderful from beginning to the end!

Marriott at Penn Square: Lancaster General Hospital Event – September 15,2018

Seaview Country Club: Alexandra and Dan – September 14, 2018
I just wanted to inform you as well as whom ever else this may concern, that Sid Miller is the definition of a professional. Without Sid’s attention to detail, and high concern for a smooth schedule for the day of our wedding, I feel that I may have been walking into my worst nightmare.
Sid touched base with my wedding coordinator to confirm details. Upon doing so, it was discovered that the venue had booked an event in the same ballroom as our wedding, directly before, only leaving a very short amount of time to change over from one event to the other. Sid obviously knew this would not work and called me right away to discuss options. Keep in mind, our ceremony will also be in this same ballroom if it is inclement weather. He expressed how important an ample amount of time to setup and for sound check was to the band. (I also confirmed this with the venue three weeks ago, and they agreed to Sid's proposed arrival time, which was then denied by the wedding coordinator today on the phone.) The venue did not have much regard for this issue regarding the band. I then took matters into my own hands and called the venue myself to express how crucial it was to have Sid gain access to that room much earlier than the venue had planned. After some choice wording from myself, the venue called Sid back and was more accommodating to our requests.
Long story short, I knew I wanted Sid Miller at my wedding just by watching a YouTube video. I wanted the band even more after hearing them at a showcase at Ardmore Music Hall. My wedding day isn’t even here yet and Sid has proved to be worth every penny. His communication with me has been stellar, even on the weekends when I email him. He took the time to brief me on the situation today, that I had no idea about, and saw it through until it was resolved. He never once doubted my outrage at the venue, and expressed that his best interest was that his band sound like the band myself as well as my guests expect to hear next week.
My family and I are so grateful for his dedication and his professionalism. He went above and beyond. Even after a long, draining, emotional day, I still feel excited about next week because I know Sid will not disappoint. I just felt BVTLive should know how amazing Sid is, not that you didn’t know already ;).

(Wedding Day Review)
Sid Miller is AMAZING! I knew from a simple you tube video that they had to be our wedding band. I loved them even more in person when we went to listen to them. From beginning to end Sid was a true professional and made sure our wedding timeline was perfect! People are RAVING about the band! Our dance floor was full from beginning to end!!! The band members made sure to interact with our guests and kept the momentum going!! You must have Sid Miller Dance Band at your wedding!

Horticultural Center: Bassel and Jacob Charney – September 2, 2018
We just wanted to thank you SO much for an absolutely amazing evening. All of our guests are raving about the band and as you saw we were on the floor right up until the very end. We could not imagine a more perfect evening. When you get a chance would you be able to email us the final set list for the event? We would love to make a playlist to relive the magic over and over again.

Front & Palmer: Jillian and Kyle Bloecker – September 1, 2018
The Sid Miller Band was incredible from start to finish. They listened to everything we wanted, made great recommendations and learned how to play one song that was very important to me (and they learned it beautifully).
Their energy, passion and talent shines through every song.
Not one person sat for more then 3 minutes at our wedding...even family members I never thought would dance.
Our friends and family loved them so much, we all asked them to do 3 encore’s at the end of the night. For how tired I am sure they were, they played 3 more amazing fun songs we all LOVED.
We thank them for doing that 🙂
Hands down best wedding reviews from attended guests from having such an awesome band.
Thank you to Sid Miller Band!

Greenville Country Club: Antonia and Kazim Karaismailoglu – August 24, 2018
We don’t know what to say other than you made our day perfect! You guys/girls are absolutely incredible. Wow. Everything was perfect and you sounded perfect. I can not thank you enough from the bottom of our hearts for absolutely killing it. Everyone was flipping out over the sound of you guys and the energy you brought. We had the best day of lives and you and your band helped make that happen. Thank you for dealing with the last minute change to our song and for nailing the David gray song. My mom was floored by the Andrea Bocelli song you did as well. Really thank you so much!

The Union League of Philadelphia: Jenna and Matt – August 18, 2018
The Sid Miller Dance Band was phenomenal!! Sid was so accommodating in the planning stages-willing to learn any song if the band didn't already know it, taking the time to set up the time line to our specifications. His professionalism allowed us to feel completely confident that everything would go as planned. And our guests raved about the band!! Most said they'd never heard a band as good!! We couldn't have been happier with their performance! Thanks Sid!!

The Logan Hotel: Norma and Michael Abbattista – August 4, 2018
Sid Miller made our day SO special! The personalization and energy that was present leading up to the event and on the actual day was unlike anything we were expecting! SMDB is the best and I would happily recommend them to everyone!!- Norma (Bride)_________________________________________
Wow. The Sid Miller Dance Band was simply incredible and exceeded all expectations we had. My wife and I saw them at the BVTLive Showcase and were so impressed with them, that we signed them right on the spot. From that moment on Sid was great, he took the time out of his busy day to sit down with us one on one to go over every detail of our Wedding. He didn’t miss anything and made the day all about us. He was so accommodating and truly made our day perfect.
From the minute we entered the ballroom the vibes the band gave off were infectious. Everyone was on the dance floor from the first song until the encore, we wish they could have kept playing. All of our wedding guests are still talking about how amazing the band was. They played a great variety of songs and got everyone dancing the night away. The Band as a whole is super talented and jive well together.
If you are looking for a wedding band, The Sid Miller Dance Band is the one. They will make your day so special and will make you talk about the day for years to come. They put on an amazing show and we can’t thank them enough for that.

Knowlton Mansion: Kelly and Donald Ibach – July 21, 2018
We chose Sid Miller Dance Band for our wedding in July of 2018. We were impressed by Sid at the initial showcase and his band totally went above and beyond for our reception. Sid was excellent to work with, meeting with us personally to discuss our ideas and offer his vision for the party. We have gotten numerous compliments since (and during) the wedding about how it sounded like listening to the original artists. Kelly and I were blown away by your band at our reception, and I certainly would highly recommend Sid Miller for your special occasion!
Enjoy the rest of your summer,
- Kelly & Don (Bride and Groom)
Sid Miller Dance Band was great! Sid was great to work with and willing to learn additional songs not part of their repertoire. Definitely a pricey band but they are true professionals and won’t disappoint.

- Tim and Grace (Groom and Bride)
BVTLive was great. We worked with Nils who was easy to work with and very responsive- but not pushy. We selected The Sid Miller Dance Band- and they were awesome! Everyone loved them and the dance floor was packed all night! BVT and Sid Miller were great choices- we could not have been happier!
- Grace Ann (Bride)
I apologize for the delay in getting back to you- things have been a little hectic just trying to get settled after the wedding 🙂 but everything was great— Sid and the Band were fantastic!!!! The dance floor was packed all night long! We are still getting compliments about the band!!
Thank you so much for your help! You and BVT Live were definitely one of the easier vendors to work with- thanks for making things go so smoothly. We emailed Sid right after the wedding to thank him and the band for such a great performance and wonderful evening.

The Mendenhall Inn: Laura and Matt – May 27, 2018
We cannot say enough good things about having the Sid Miller Dance Band perform at our recent wedding (May 2018). Sid met with us personally to get to know us as a couple and showed very genuine interest in and took detailed notes about our interests (musical and otherwise!), such that we truly felt like the band was catering every song choice and detail to our exact preferences and personalities. The insanely talented band members and off-the-charts singers performed almost every song we requested (brilliantly), while using their spot-on judgment and many decades of combined experience to arrange the song order and adjust extemporaneously to be sure the flow of the evening was perfect and lively. As just one example, the father of the bride made a brief Star Wars joke during his speech/toast - and the band then incorporated a short riff on the Star Wars theme into a song later in the night, even though that family interest had not come up previously: they adapted on the spot, a great demonstration of both the entire band's musical virtuosity and their commitment to ensuring each event is unique and special. As another, Sid picked up on the bride's love of musical theater in the initial meeting and then perfectly incorporated a song from Rent at the ideal moment. Our guests could not stop raving about the band for weeks, because they are unbelievably talented at performing all genres and styles of music (from "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" by The Darkness, to Prince, to Frank Sinatra and old standards, to Journey, to Lady Gaga...the musicians and singers can pull off ANYTHING with aplomb), and they kept people of all ages on the dance floor for the entire night, engaging with everyone of all backgrounds and musical tastes personally. One member of the band even danced with the groom's 80-year-old grandmother at length! In short, the Sid Miller Dance Band will make your event spectacular from the planning process through the final encore.
- Laura and Matt (Bride and Groom)
The Anthony Wayne House: Maureen and Ryan Gibbons – May 11, 2018
Thank you, Sid, for a WONDERFUL wedding day for Maureen and Ryan! We got rave reviews from our guests about your band and a full dance floor all evening spoke wonders about the success of the evening. Thank you for your talent, your terrific band members and your willingness to work with us all! Maureen and Ryan are currently on their honeymoon but before they left they told us that they just couldn't imagine a better reception. And..didn't we just luck out with the weather?!
By the way, our 4 yr old grandson/ring bearer, Kieran, wanted to know as soon as the music stopped, "When can we go to another wedding?" so..if you ever need a dancing stand-in..you know who to call. 😊
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
- Judy Bole
Sid Miller, the man himself, is incredibly kind and will meet with you to get to know you. His goal is to provide you with a fun night of music and dancing but he focuses on what you want/the environment you want to create so that he makes your wedding day special. The Sid Miller Band is amazing. They had our guest dancing the whole night - the young to the elderly. After our wedding, a lot of guests told me that it was the best band they've ever seen at a wedding.
