Dennis and The Strangers,
Thank you so much for being such an important part of our wedding. Our guests still cannot stop talking about how amazing you are all were! Everyone was dancing all night and we had a great time! Thank you for being so accomodating with all our requests (the Springsteen was a HUGE hit).
Collingswood Ballroom: Schalam – Manzione Wedding – August 31, 2013 – Groom
We had a great time with Strangers playing at our wedding! Our guests can't stop talking about how great the band was and how much fun they had dancing. Strangers were very accommodating of our song requests and learned whatever songs they needed to make our day special. We would definitely recommend Strangers to anyone who is looking for a fun band for their wedding!

Manufacturer’s County Club: Whitney & Chris Sherman Wedding – September 14, 2013
Chris and I wanted to make sure and send you a note back to thank you and the band SO MUCH for such a GREAT evening. Now admittedly Chris and I are a little bias, but we think we had the BEST wedding that either of us have ever been to and a big part of that was because of you guys! All of our quests raved about what an amazing job you guys did. You had people on the dance floor before we even had dinner! The assortment of songs you did was absolutely perfect. It kept everyone engaged and on the floor. We had several people tell us after the wedding that if you guys had kept playing, they would have kept dancing til morning. You guys made the reception an absolute blast and we are so thankful for it. You guys did an amazing job and we both would recommend you to any couple we knew!
Thank You Again,
The Queen: Lauren and David – July, 6, 2013
The wedding and the band were phenomenal. Every song had a packed dance floor and we did not stop all night. It is 5 days later and people are still talking about the wedding. You guys were awesome and everyone there had a great time. Thanks for playing our certain requests perfectly and keeping the crowd involved. I cannot express it enough, but ALL of the guests had a GREAT time. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day.

The event was great and STRANGERS were "over the top"!! I thought the roof was gonna come off The Foundry.

“THAT WAS THE BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!!!”
We’ve gotten pretty used to hearing that from everyone who attended our wedding. And it is exactly what we were looking for when it came to the most important part of our reception - the music. From the cocktail hour to the final song, the Strangers provided an atmosphere that made our night truly something to remember! We had such a wonderful experience with these guys, and gals during our wedding. The entire process from beginning to end was professional and laid back, all at the same time. We built such a wonderful rapport with Denny and felt so comfortable! When they gave us a huge selection of music to choose from, we had no idea what we would do, but somehow narrowed it down to 80 songs. Then after a casual final meeting, we gave our absolute favorites and left the rest up to them. That was the best decision we could have made! They used our suggestions and created the perfect playlist to get our guests moving, shaking and dancing way past the last song. The icing on the cake was running into them at the bar afterwards and feeling like they were part of our group! You truly cannot find a better band to make your day unforgettable.

Laurita Winery: Clare & Doug – October 27, 2012
Hi Denny and Strangers!
It's been almost two months since our wedding and we are still getting raves about you guys! You were absolutely AMAZING. You kept everyone on the dance floor, kept the party going, and totally made our wedding night. Our wedding would not have been the same without The Strangers! We had so much fun dancing up a storm to your talent and loved that you played "Mony Mony" right on the spot after my uncle requested it! So many of our guests inquired about your contact information and commented on how the singers sounded just like the original artists!
Strangers were an absolute pleasure to work with, took all of our requests and concerns to heart, and gave us the best party and dancing atmosphere we have ever experienced! I know we'll be cutting a rug to Strangers again at friends and/or family's weddings!
Really, Thank You So Much!

The Mendenhall Inn: Emily & Erik – September 8, 2012
What can I say... the Strangers were absolutely incredible at my daughter’s wedding last weekend. No one left… they danced till the band stopped performing. It was an incredible night and I knew it would be. I don’t think they ever took a break and if they did no one noticed. I received so many compliments all night long on the band and everyone wanted to know where I found them. Denny was wonderful as he always is… just kept everyone dancing!

The Old Mill: Melissa & Raghav – September 1, 2012
My husband and I just wanted to let you know how amazing Strangers was at our wedding at the Old Mill on 9/1/12. First of all, we booked them for ceremony music and chose somewhat obscure songs for the procession and recession. Rick put together beautiful acoustic versions of the songs. It was exactly what I pictured for my walk down the aisle. We never saw strangers live before the wedding. We chose them based on the video on your website. Let me just say, the video is great but not nearly as incredible as they are live! Denny met with us the week before and immediately upon meeting him we felt so at ease and comfortable. His laid back approach and confidence about the quality of the band got us so excited to see what they had to offer and we weren’t disappointed. Our guests were on the dance floor all night long. Nearly every single one of our 185 guests came up to me personally to tell me how great Strangers was. They played an awesome set list with tons of varieties and even surprised us with a great rendition of “Call Me Maybe!” During dinner, they played mellow music and guests were able to relax and have conversations with friends. There’s not a single thing we would change about the entertainment and music they provided. Thank you so much and we will be sure to recommend Strangers and BVTLive! to all our friends getting married!

Thank you for a wonderful wedding reception on September 1st at the Old Mill. You were right… many have told us it was the best time they’ve had. We had a ball and are finally catching our breaths. You guys are great!

DoubleTree Philadelphia: Colleen & Joe – August 3, 2012
THANK YOU!!! Due to you and the band the night would have not been what it was. All night long all of our guests were telling me that "The band is amazing!!" "This is the best wedding band ever!" I'm so happy that you got my brothers up to sing; that was one of my favorite highlights of the night!
Thank you again for everything and I can't thank you enough for making it an unforgettable evening!

Our guests raved and everyone had a blast. I have never been at a wedding with so many people on the dance floor. Also, special thanks for allowing my dad to practice with you guys and surprise us with that song - it was quite the toast! We had such a great time, and you really contributed to an incredible atmosphere.

Rivercrest Golf Club: Lavelle-Glennon Wedding
Thank you so much for an amazing wedding. Our guests are continuously telling us that you guys are the best band they have ever heard. Everyone was dancing the whole time, and that's all we wanted. You also did a great job learning our songs. Can't wait to see the video! I'm sure it's even better than we remember.

Hotel DuPont: Gallagher-Lucyk Wedding – June 15, 2012
Kurt, BVT, and most of all The Strangers,
Our wedding was nothing short of perfect. Every time we hear a song played on our wedding night, we are brought back to the moments inside the Hotel DuPont ballroom where the Strangers made them come to life! Our friends and family had the time of their lives dancing the night away to the hits Denny and the group put together. Thank you for being there on the biggest night of our lives. We will forever cherish the memories you helped captured by playing for us all night. The Strangers are by far your best band at BVT!

Dear Denny and all the wonderful musicians / singers of the band Strangers –
Gary and I cannot thank you enough for making our wedding night one of the most fun nights of our lives! We had the best time and I don’t think we left the dance floor once! Everything was just absolutely amazing. All of our parents loved all the music too and their friends are still commenting to them about how great you guys were! I have already recommended you to some people I know that are getting married. From the beginning when we met with Denny and Rich until the end of the night having a beer back at the bar, you all were just so warm and friendly, not to mention extremely talented!!! Thanks from the bottom of our hearts!

Thanks for making our wedding day magical! Strangers kept the dance floor packed all night long. Denny (Strangers band) works with you to make the night go smoothly, it’s the prep work beforehand that makes you feel like a superstar & go out have fun! We received numerous compliments on how great the band sounded: “The perfect volume” “Played a wide range of music,” “Great Horn Section.” Strangers also provided the ceremony & cocktail hour music so you need not look any further for your musical needs.
Thanks for keeping the party rocking!

Thanks for making our wedding amazing. I cannot tell you how many compliments we've received about our band choice, and how many people told us that our wedding was one of the best they've attended (to quote a few, "one for the books" and "the one to top"). Strangers just did an absolutely amazing job of rocking the party, and we both had the BEST time dancing the night away with you guys. Also, Doug and I agreed that we think you guys KILLED "On the Floor" by Jennifer Lopez -- it was ridiculously awesome. In fact, everything you guys did was great and we will absolutely make it out to a public gig to see you play. Just keep us posted and we'll definitely be there!
Thanks again for everything. Doug and I loved getting to know you during the wedding prep, and we couldn't be more grateful to you all for making our wedding the best!
Deerfield Golf and Tennis Club: Albanese-Delle Cave, July 23, 2011
July 23, 2011
It has been three weeks since our wedding and people are still talking about what a great time they had that day. All the credit goes to Strangers. We have received numerous compliments about the song selection, sound quality, and over all performance of the band, including statements like, "Wow, I've never seen so many people on a dance floor all night long."
The night started with cocktail hour, during which two members of Strangers played and provided appropriate background music for the setting. After cocktail hour it was time to introduce the wedding party, and we're glad we went with the band's advice to have everyone come out to the Blues Brothers theme song. Strangers learned our first dance song for us, and it sounded great. So did the parent dances. The dinner music that followed was also very good.
Then the party really started. We got married during a July heat wave. The temperature reached 100+ that day, and unfortunately, the air conditioning units couldn't compensate. Our 290 guests were hot...very hot. But once Strangers got everyone on the dance floor with "I Gotta Feeling," people were hooked on them. The dance floor was packed all night until the very end. Our parents were ready to pay them for an additional hour, but we already had a scheduled after party. No one wanted the night to end, as shown by the crowd chanting "one more song, one more song." Strangers delivered with the classic "Livin on a Prayer."
Strangers played a good mix of older classic wedding dance songs and newer songs. That's what we told Denny and Rick when we met with them several weeks before the wedding. Although we checked the songs on their play list that we liked, we did not give a specific set list because we trusted the band to play to the crowd and get a feel for the night. Another good decision. The song selections were a perfect fit. They also learned John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" for the father of the bride. He gave it a big two thumbs up.
We highly recommend Strangers to anyone who is looking for a wedding band that will keep the guests dancing all night. In addition to being an incredible band, they are also very nice people to work with. Their professionalism, timely communication and kindness made for a perfect and memorable wedding reception. We look forward seeing Strangers play again at at their next public show.

I wanted to leave a quick GLOWING review of Strangers from my wedding last weekend. This band is FANTASTIC! I can’t even count the number of compliments we got for the most amazing band in all the land – young, older, EVERY one loved them. All band members were so engaging and joyous to us throughout the night – everyone could feel the excitement and happiness in the room! It was perfection, top to bottom and this band gets so much of the credit for that.
Picking Strangers was one of the easiest and truly, BEST decisions we made for this epic event. THANK YOU THANK YOU
