BVTLive! Jellyroll Band Performs the Black Tie Tailgate

Jellyroll was back for another year at the Philly Auto Show’s kickoff gala, The Black Tie Tailgate, supporting The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Not only did Jellyroll perform the party, but multiple BVTLive! specialty acts and performers were stationed around the Pennsylvania Convention Center to serenade the thousands of guests who walked in. We had DJ Fusion ensembles, electric violinists, Dueling Pianos, and so much more!

We are so excited to say that Jellyroll and BVTLive! will be back at the Black Tie Tailgate in 2024!

BVTLive! can always be counted on to support a good cause, which is why we were so happy to provide entertainment to the Brandywine Valley SPCA ‘Forget-Me’Not Gala’!

Long time fellow industry professionals, as well as longtime friends, the Finley’s of Finley Catering, held a charity fundraiser for the Chordoma Foundation, benefitting a cause close to the their heart as their daughter, Stephanie, was diagnosed and treated with Chordoma Cancer. Jellyroll performed the beautiful charity fundraiser which was dazzled in pink to help raise money for the foundation.

Being a Philadelphia Live Entertainment Agency, we are elated every time our bands and musicians are asked to perform at a Philly sports event!
