Strangers Band: Philadelphia Wedding and Party Band

Greenville Country Club: Novak – Smith Wedding – August 23, 2014

We recently had the Philly-based band Strangers play at our daughter's wedding in Wilmington, Delaware. Stangers and BVTLive! were wonderful to work with the entire time. We initially picked the band online based on their performances and song list. When we heard them play at a Band Preview, we were impressed. We also liked the way the band leaders met with us personally to discuss songs and the audience.

The night of the wedding, however, they just blew us away. They were perfect! From the time we opened the dance floor until we closed the place down, people were dancing and singing all night. Our guests kept saying that this was the best band and the best wedding ever. Strangers even learned several songs for the bride and groom, which made the night very special. We liked them so much, we may go try to see them again when they play in public. Don't procrastinate, get this band today!

"BVTLive! never fails to supply us with great entertainment every year for our Lemon Ball gala. This past January they sent out STRANGERS to perform at the event. Our guests absolutely loved the band and had a blast dancing the night away! Both BVTLive! and STRANGERS were so generous and such a pleasure to work with!"

Besides the bride and groom being a beautiful couple, the next best comment we got from everyone, including my husband and 80 year old mom, was that the band was amazing!! Thanks for bringing life to the party and making us have a great evening. Hope you enjoyed the space and the crowd and everything went smoothly for all of you. It all seems seamless, so hoping it was a good evening for everyone.

Many thanks,


Union League: Holiat – Pidhirsky Wedding – September 21, 2013

The STRANGERS rocked it our wedding celebration and had our guests on the dance floor all night. They also learned a few songs per our request, especially our first dance. The two guys playing their instruments on the dance floor at one point was a nice touch, and we've continued to hear positive feedback about how much fun was had. The band exceeded our expectations and clearly knows how to feed off the crowd... -Mike & Lydia

Collingswood Ballroom: Schwalm – Manzione Wedding – August 31, 2013 – Bride

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). 

Thanks again!

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.

Pomme: Jessica and Adam – November 3, 2012


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!

Happy Holidays!!

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!

To Strangers,

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!

Hey Denny!

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!

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!

Wow, wow, and wow again!   I can’t thank The Strangers enough for all of your time and talent that was donated to make our Sunny Days event the best ever.  We heard over and over again how much our guests enjoyed the music…having you there really made all the difference in the world.  The money raised at that event will go a long way in empowering victims of domestic violence and their children to become safe and self-sufficient.
And of course this wouldn’t have happened without the dedication of our wonderful volunteer Angie—helping us out time and again with our community outreach, transforming our children’s room with her incredible artwork…and now bringing this amazing band to us…. Angie, we love you SO much!
