    Hyatt at the Bellevue: Center City Philadelphia Wedding

    Why would you choose anybody else than the Grand Funkmaster of Philly Live music, Kurt is who I am talking about. If you can afford the expense of a live band, call Kurt if you want a real pro. We bugged the heck out of him and he always came up for air with a smile on his face. – Stuart

    Artesano Iron Works – Manayunk Wedding

    Working with BVTLive and our wedding band Back2Life was INCREDIBLE. The entire process from booking to event date was seamless. We attended a BVT showcase after seeing Back2Life at an event. The showcase was so much fun. We immediately booked Back2Life. Working with Marci, Mark, and Kurt was so enjoyable. This is a group of people who truly enjoy what they do and aim to make each event just as special as the next. Their performance at our ceremony and reception was truly stellar. They handled everything! Ceremony music, cocktail hour tunes, introductions, first dance, parent dances, speeches, and other important highlights of the night. Then they truly rocked out for the duration of the evening. Our guests are still saying it was the “best wedding band they’ve ever heard” and we could not agree more! Thank you BVTLife and Back2Life for being apart of the best day of our lives! – Sarah (Bride)
