The Crystal Tea Room: Lauren and Derek Prucnal, March 9, 2024

BVT should be considered by all interested parties in looking for the perfect partner to assist in bringing their event or wedding to a level enjoyment beyond their expectation. From the first time meeting the BVT at one of their showcases in Ardmore, PA, to every communication, thereafter, we were provided with a level of confidence where we knew we were in good hands to make our son's & future daughter in law's wedding a day we would remember. No detail went undressed. Simply perfection!!
The band portfolio BVT represents is unmatched - each band we had the pleasure of listening to was spectacular in their own right. The musicians are top notch, and they took pride in making sure that how we envisioned the musical experience at the wedding would be achieved.
Strangers was the band we selected. Over-the- top amazing. Their preparation for our evening was precise and their ability to "work the crowd" on the dance floor was truly inspiring. From 20 somethings to 80+ years of age, once you were on the dance floor, you never considered sitting back down in your chair for the rest of the evening!
Thank you BVT - My friends who have wedding plans in their family's future are already 'pinging me" for your information.
Your efforts receive a 10 out of 10 stars!!!

We can totally see why Strangers is the best in the business when it comes to world class entertainment! All of our family & friends (both young & old!) can’t stop raving about “how great the band was.”

We could not recommend this band enough for those planning a fun wedding!

The Tendenza: Meghan and Jason Larm, February 17, 2024

We recently had Strangers perform at our wedding in Philadelphia and they were absolutely fantastic! Denny and Rick were extremely easy to work with on the preparation and the band sounded incredible. Our friends and family have been raving for days after the event. The band was very accommodating and allowed our family to have a few special moments, which was above and beyond and greatly appreciated!

Merion Cricket Club: Emily and Brian Sever, October 24th, 2023

Strangers was the absolute best part of our whole wedding.

We had the band Strangers perform for our wedding and on the day of, I was speechless at how incredible they were. I could not have been more grateful- everyone danced the entire night. I got the chills at how talented they were. Everyone was amazed at how good they were. They even came out on the dance floor at one point, playing the trumpets! It was an absolutely unforgettable moment of our wedding that I will never forget.

Loch Aerie Mansion: Kate and Jim Donohue, October 13, 2023

Strangers completely rocked our wedding!! They had everyone on the dance for the whole time and between the brass, singers, and interactions with the audiences, they were such a hit. They played the songs that we asked them to learn and did it perfectly! I would highly recommend this band for your event. The band itself and BVTLive! were very responsive and the form that we filled out for the music was very straightforward and helpful and definitely time-saving.

Union League of Philadelphia: Marian and Conner Brown, September 2, 2023

Strangers and BVTLive! were an absolute pleasure to work with through the entire wedding planning process. They blew away our guests the day of the wedding, every single person was mentioning that they were the best wedding band they had ever heard!!! They can play oldies, newer hits, and everything in between. I cannot recommend them enough, if you are thinking about hiring a wedding band they are the band to hire!!!

The Stone Gables: Dina and Zane Geist – June 16, 2023

We hired Strangers to play at our wedding and they were incredible! We had an amazing time and not one person left the wedding without complimenting the band. They kept the audience engaged the entire evening and even sprinkled in some surprises during a few of the songs that got everyone on the dance floor. I would recommend Strangers to anyone looking for impressive versatility and endless charisma that your guests will never forget!

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Lemon Ball: Liz Scott- January 28, 2023

I wanted to send a quick note of thanks for your support of The Lemon Ball.  We raised over $850,000.  We appreciate your support always and forever!  Strangers was fantastic as always; people love their energy and they keep the dance floor full until the end. New venue, new auctioneer, and a two-year hiatus from in-person; it felt great to be back together again for same great cause.

- Liz Scott (Founder, Alex Scott's Mom) 

Hotel Bethlehem: Mackenzie and Anthony Halupa – November 5, 2022

We hired Strangers as our wedding band. They were amazing. From start to finish the entire process was seamless. We spoke with Denny and Rick about 90 days before and also a month before. They are incredibly accommodating, played songs that we asked for that were a little out in left field, and let my FIL play his accordion with the band. They are seriously amazing. Everyone is still talking about them 2 weeks later. We had such an incredible time BECAUSE of them.

- Mackenzie (Bride)

Malvern, PA: Alexandra and Derek McAvoy – October 8, 2022

Our experience with BVT for our wedding. You guys were a blast....our guests loved every minute of it and so did we!!! The music was incredible from cocktail hour - until the very last song at the end of night!!! Thanks again ...we will be sure to keep recommending you to everyone we know!!!

- Alexandra (Bride)

Cescaphe Ballroom: Jackie and Dan Gilbert – July 22, 2022

Strangers are AMAZING! Strangers helped make our day extra special. They made the whole process from choosing songs to the day of the wedding super easy and as little stress as possible. We continue to hear how much our guests loved the band weeks after the wedding.

- Dan (Groom)



Bartram’s Garden’s: Alexa and Matt Robinson – May 21, 2022

Strangers are incredible! From start to finish they were so easy to work with. Months later wedding guests are still raving about them. The band got the party started and kept everyone on the dance floor all night! They went above and beyond, learning songs for our ceremony and our first dance. Strangers truly exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend them!

- Alexa (Bride)

The Ballroom at the Ben: Meghan and Chris DiBello – February 19, 2022

Best Wedding Band! We hired the Strangers with BVTLive! for our original wedding 2/27/2021. With covid, we had to push everything back a year. BVTLive! was so easy to work with and made the replanning process stress free! The Strangers were INCREDIBLE! They had everyone on the dance floor the entire night! We still have friends and family members raving about them! If you are looking for the best wedding band, look no further! The strangers are so talented, fun and energetic!

- Meghan (Bride)

Stroudsmoor Country Inn: Andrea and Mike Boyd – October 23, 2021

Strangers rocked our wedding! We had the privilege of having Strangers play our ceremony and reception at our wedding a few weeks ago and they were absolutely fantastic! The band leaders Denny and Rick met with us during the planning process so we could talk about how we wanted to day to flow and what our tastes were - their experience and advice was invaluable. You can tell they truly want to help make your wedding not only the best night of your life, but also make it personal to you as a couple, and they really enjoy doing it! They bring such a great energy to the dance floor and kept the night moving along right on schedule. Strangers kept everyone dancing all night long and made sure to play all our special requests too! We always knew we wanted to have a live band because, in our opinion, it brings that extra romanticism that a DJ just can't quite do, and Strangers truly exceeded all expectations! We would highly recommend Strangers to anyone looking for a band for a special event!

- Andrea (Bride)

Private Residence: Katherine and Francis Iacobucci – October 9, 2021

Energetic and amazing band! Strangers is an incredible band! They performed our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and helped lift the energy from start to finish. From learning specific songs we wanted, to emcee-ing perfectly, to playing brass instruments as they walked through the dance floor, the band members killed it. They even let our little niece play the bongos! The band was cheered by our guests at the end of the wedding as they chanted "one more song!"...and they did!

- Francis (Groom)

The Union League of Philadelphia: Hillary and Cyrus Western – June 19, 2021

“BVTLive!’s Strangers Band was the highlight of the wedding reception. They truly kept the party going all night long and our guests haven't stopped raving about them. Leading up to the wedding, I was wavering between different genres of music I wanted played, and they were super patient with me and accommodating. During COVID when we thought we'd have to vastly downsize the wedding, BVTLive! was willing to be flexible with us to meet possible new needs. Fortunately, Philadelphia opened up and we were able to have our original band - Strangers! All around great company, great service, great sound. We are thrilled!”

- Hillary (Bride) 


Curtis Arboretum: Sarah and Ben Finkel – June 18, 2021

Strangers made our wedding night a night to remember! We had initially seen Strangers pre-pandemic at the Ardmore Hall music show case. This was a fabulous way to see different bands in a very fun low key environment. We ended up booking Strangers that night! Like many weddings we had to postpone. BVTLive! did not drag their feet at all with this, immediately agreed and we were able to still have Strangers at our wedding on the new date. Rick and Denny were an absolute pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding. The band learned our first dance song and did an absolutely fantastic job! Their set list is extensive. I cannot tell you how many people came up to us and told us how much they loved the band and where can they find them for their family members wedding?! Cannot thank the band enough for keeping us all dancing the night away!

- Sarah (Bride)

The Desmond Hotel: Marissa and Tyler Costello – May 28, 2021

Strangers, thank you so much for providing fantastic entertainment at our wedding reception! We can't tell you how many compliments we have received from our guests about how amazing the music was. Tyler and I particularly enjoyed our special request of instrumental Disney music during cocktail hour and the awesome dance set during the reception!

- Marissa & Tyler

Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts: Katie and Alex – February 29, 2020

Talented band, amazing hospitality. Everyone at BVTLive! was incredible; from Paul, who helped us pick our band, Strangers, to Denny and Rick who were our point-people in the band, everyone displayed exceptional professionalism and customer service. We had been working with Paul discussing another BVTLive! band (which was a little out of our price range), and had decided on a band from another agency. We recieved a phone call from that agency that the band we had requested was unavailable, and called Paul back to inquire about additional BVTLive! bands- he texted us from a wedding that he was about to play, to set up a time to discuss additional band options, and we were able to attend another showcase the following week, where we met Strangers. After than, everything fell into place. Strangers had everything we were looking for- oldies, jazz, 80s rock, and a stand-out horn section. We met with Denny and Rick a few months before the wedding, and reviewed our preferences, and they even learned an Italian pop song as a surprise for my mother-in-law (on top of our other requests). The evening was executed perfectly- everyone was on the dance floor the whole night, and I can't count the number of people who commented on the quality of the band! We can't thank Strangers enough- they made the evening!

The Ritz-Carlton: Sara and Anthony – December 7, 2019

Thank you so much for making our wedding a dream come true! Our guests were blown away by Strangers - all night people were coming up to us to say how great the band was, and we're still hearing that almost two weeks later. We could not have asked for a more fun wedding and so much of that is because of Strangers. We'll be leaving glowing reviews of the band on the typical wedding vendor websites.

Thanks again for everything, you guys truly made our night!

All the best,
Sara & Anthony (Bride and Groom)


Hire Strangers for your wedding! After attending a BVTLive! wedding band showcase, we selected Strangers for our wedding. This was probably the single best decision we made for our wedding. The band sounded incredible and played hit after hit all night. Our guests danced for hours and people were still talking about how great the band was weeks after our wedding! Denny (band leader) and Rick (ceremony music coordinator) were both so nice, easy to work with, and genuinely invested in making our day perfect. We can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you Strangers!

The Lucy: Dayna and Ben Mintz – November 23, 2019

Our wedding was a blast with Strangers!

From the first time, we heard Strangers at a showcase my now wife and I knew they were the perfect fit for our wedding! Everything from the level of organization to quality of musicianship and highly interactive performance kept our entire group on the dance floor the whole night. Many guests came up to us just to compliment the band. I cannot recommend highly enough!

- Ben (Groom)

The Lucy: Dayna and Ben – November 11, 2019

On behalf of our families, guests (most of whom approached us individually to comment), and most of all ourselves, we want to take the opportunity to thank you for your simply amazing performance at our wedding.  Everything from the song selection and flow, to the interactive elements, kept everyone entertained throughout the entire evening.  The quality of your musicianship and your ability to play a little something from each generation that everyone knew while checking off our 'must haves' was top notch!  It was such a big part of one of the most amazing days of our lives, and kept us up and moving with energy we didn't know we had! We will not hesitate to recommend you for future events.

Please give our best to the entire team and Happy Holidays,

- Ben & Dayna (Groom & Bride)
