Answer: Yes. BVTLive! can provide customized ceremonies, as well as live music for brunches, rehearsal dinners, after parties, and any other element of your wedding weekend that would benefit from live performances.
Question: How do I reserve a band?
Answer: Once you decide to move forward, we send a simple contract that we ask you to sign and return with a $2,000-$3,000 deposit. Your balance is due ten days in advance of the performance.
Question: Are BVTLive! bands insured?
Answer: Yes. All BVT bands have at least a one million dollar liability policy. Proof of insurance certificates are available upon request.
Question: Who provides stage production (sound, lights, technicians)?
Answer: Not only do our bands perform through state of the art sound systems but a highly trained and experienced sound technician is there to ensure great sound at a suitable volume. Basic stage lighting is provided. Upgrades in both areas are available at additional cost.
Question: What do the musicians wear?
Answer: All of our musicians dress in formal attire unless otherwise discussed prior to the event.
Question: Do you accept credit cards?
Answer: We accept all major credit cards.
Question: What if I want the band to play a song that isn’t on their song list?
Answer: All BVTLive!’s bands are willing to learn new songs. For weddings, if we don’t already know the songs, we would learn your first dance and parent dance songs, as well as your intro song.
Question: How much do the bands cost?
Answer: The bands’ fees depend on a number of factors. Each band’s fee is unique, and is based on demand, the exact date, day of the week, and timing. Our dance bands range from $3,500 to $12,500. I understand that this is a wide range so, if you would like an exact quote, please call or click here, and we can either call or email you, whichever you prefer. If events are further than 60 miles from Philadelphia, there may be additional travel fees.
Question: What packages do you offer?
Answer: All of BVTLive!’s bands offer a customized package that includes music for your cocktails with pianist, or a Duo, and a full band performance for dinner and dancing. We also offer ceremony options for weddings.
