Wedding & Party Bands

BVTLive! hosted our biweekly showcase at the Ardmore Music Hall on Monday, July 26th and it was a blast! Our showcases provide the opportunity to our guests to experience the BVTLive! bands with no fee, no pressure, and no obligation.

The night was full of fun for our lovely guests. We kicked off the event with Deja Blue performing “Levitating” by Dua Lipa. Deja Blue was super energetic and was the perfect group to show our guests what the BVTLive! experience is like.

Deja Blue, Philadelphia’s most versatile band, consists of a select group of musicians chosen for the purpose of making your wedding or event unique, seamless, and entertaining. When you mix a group of seasoned professionals with the best new talent the result is a group that can cover generations of music. We can provide live music for your entire event: ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. We offer DJ services for any portion of your event as well. Specializing in fun, high energy music— rock, pop, funk, dance and everything in-between, Deja Blue is a group that can perform all the timeless classics to the best new releases – we’ve got you covered.

At BVTLive, all of our band members are professional performers that know how to get the party started at every event we have the honor of being a part of. It is very important to us that we get the crowd up off their feet and dancing!

The next band that performed at our showcase was Elevation. Starting off with “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars, the group did what they do best—elevated our showcase to the next level! Their performance of “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Huston made all of us want to get up and dance with somebody!

If you are looking for a party band in Philadelphia, look no further than Elevation.  Formerly known as “All About Me,” Elevation is the same amazing band that you know and love, but with a new name and “elevated” enthusiasm!  The band is a 10-piece ensemble comprised of 3 vocalists, a drummer, bassist, guitarist, keyboardist, trumpeter, trombonist and saxophonist.  Aside from the lead vocalists, several of the musicians within the band also sing lead & backgrounds, so at any given time there can be up to 5 vocalists harmonizing together.  This enables the band to cover any style of music from Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen, to Stevie Wonder and Dua Lipa, all the while performing every song live, without supplemental backing tracks.  The musicians range of musical capabilities also allow for Elevation to be scaled down to a smaller unit, which would fit a more intimate affair.

Our band Back2Life had a standing ovation from the crowd after performing “Don’t Stop Believin” by Journey. They rocked Ardmore Music Hall so much that they had the crowd shouting for “one more song!”

For your wedding or special event, Back2Life Band is a dance party band Philadelphia favorite! Voted “Best of the Main Line”, this sophisticated, high energy, 9-piece dance band is taking the Philadelphia private party scene by storm. Back2Life band’s sound is full of passionate harmonies and tight danceable rhythms that appeal to audiences of all ages. Back2Life recently performed at the “Best of Main Line” Food Truck Finale for Main Line Today.

Finally, we had the newest addition to the BVTLive! family join us, Carnivále. El’ Ahmad Barak stunned the audience with his absolutely gorgeous rendition of Herp Albert’s “This Guy’s In Love with You.”

Carnivále is a Sophisticated, Fun, Crazy, Cool, and Unforgettable Dance Floor Wrecking Ball that will take your event or party to a level above your highest expectations.

With over 25 years of experience as one of the most high end party bands in the area, Carnivále has the expertise to give you the most sophisticated of weddings with a dance floor that will stay packed all night long! Led by band leader El’ Barack, his goal is always to make sure every party that they perform for is unique and your wedding or event will be a day your guests talk about for years to come.

Overall, we had a great time showcasing all of our amazing bands for you on Monday night! We hope you join us for our next showcase at Ardmore Music Hall on August 9th!
