Philadelphia Galas, Philadelphia Gala Bands – Brandywine Valley Talent

Wedding & Party Bands

On Thursday, May 15, 2008 Jellyroll had the honor of performing at the Park Hyatt at The Bellevue for the “Recipes for Life” Gala benefiting the National Museum for Jewish American History. The Philly Pops’ Peter Nero, pictured here with Jellyroll bandleader, Kurt Titchenell and violinist Carole Armstrong, started the evening on piano with amazing renditions of “Summer of ’42” and “Tea For Two”. After being introduced by Mr. Nero, Jellyroll filled the dance floor with their high energy Hora medley and kept the guests dancing throught the evening.
