I cannot say enough great things about Kurt Titchenell and Jellyroll (the BVT band we chose). The band was INCREDIBLE and absolutely rocked the house (our venue was the Union Leaduge - they often perform there so it was great to know that they knew the ins-and-outs of setup/tear down, etc.) Besides being a super high-energy, professional, and amazing sounding band at the ceremony, Kurt was a pleasure to work with during the planning stages. As any bride-to-be knows, flexiblity is key and you want to make sure that each vendor can deliver on their piece of your big day (and hopefully they are thinking about everything you might have missed to cover all bases!). Kurt did just that. He was responsive, professional, flexible and an all around great guy. We had requested a few songs that we didn't see on their standard list to choose from, but Kurt and the band learned all the songs and I have to say they sounded just as good as every wedding standard. You would have never known that the new song wasn't in their catalogue. You'll never regreat going with Kurt - he won't steer you wrong!
I have to say, without a doubt, the Ashley Mitchell Band was the highlight of the wedding. Everyone had a fantastic time and I heard over and over again how much they enjoyed the music. Ashley and her band sounded wonderful and they went above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thank you All About Me. The energy in the room was amazing. I do not think anyone say down the entire night. We keep getting calls from people saying it was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding.
I am writing to express my total satisfaction with Rudy Bishop and Bounce. They performed as I expected with great enthusiasm and great music. I have received many complements on their performance. You may certainly use me as a reference in the future.
Sid Miller Dance Band --- The guests at our wedding are still talking about how fabulous the music was. Your musicians and vocalists were great. You did a great job of pacing the evening so it felt like a really fun party. I have never been to a party of any type where the people did not stop dancing! Boy you work a party.
I am not really sure what to say, but you guys have nailed it with Contagious!!! WHAT A BAND!!! I cannot believe how fantastic everything went!!! They were just fantastic and made our day so special!!! I absolutely loved them as did every one of our guests! I cannot even tell you how many times I heard people say that you were the best band ever! Thank you!!!
Our wedding and guests cannot stop talking about how awesome you (Big Ric Rising) were at our wedding on June 1st. We had the absolute best day/night ever, and owe you a huge thanks to all of you for your talent and professionalism. Thank you so, so, much for everything. You are the most fun band and we will never forget you.
Midnight Hour --- Thank you for giving us the wedding of our dreams! Your flexibility and professionalism made the night seamless and lovely! We got countless compliments on the "great band". We will be recommending you to all our friends!
The wedding and the band (Strangers) were phenomenal. Every song had a packed dance floor and we did not stop all night. It is 5 days later and people are still talking about the wedding. You guys were awesome and everyone there had a great time. Thanks for playing our certain requests perfectly and keeping the crowd involved. I cannot express it enough, but ALL of the guests had a GREAT time. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day.
I just wanted to write you and the band (City Rhythm) and say that you all made our wedding. The stream of emails about how amazing the band was have not stopped and so many people have asked for your contact information.. I will pass them on :) Thank you for allowing me to be on stage with you for my favorite song of all time, if you need any good promo photos, let me know, as tons of people took some.. I'm not sure if I'm more embarrassed or entertained! We are having a huge party next year and we already plan to book you guys for it, if you are available. Thank you again for being so amazing and for including all of our small details. It meant so much to us.
Jellyroll was incredible! We don't live in the area, so we had seen videos online and spoken to other people, but never saw them live before our wedding night. We were pretty confident they'd be great, but understandably a little nervous. I am happy to report that we were blown away. They were amazing!! The singers' voices were outstanding. They were by far the best we've heard at any event we've been to and even better than in the videos we saw of them online. The band is so professional. They really know how to work the room and build up momentum as the party goes on. The dance floor was crowded the whole night and everyone had such a good time. We had picked a mix of current and older songs using the song selector, and they incorporated a lot of them very smoothly. I usually think it sounds cheesy when wedding bands do current songs because it is never as good as the original, but Jellyroll was able to pull them off very convincingly and sounded amazing. We couldn't have been happier with their performance. People have been raving about them for weeks now. A huge thank you to Jellyroll for making our wedding such a blast! To all brides and grooms- do yourself and your wedding a favor...book them! You will be so, so glad that you did.
Jellyroll --- "Thank you for the wonderful performance at The White House on March 29, 2008. All who attended the reunion had an incredible time, and your music was a highlight of the evening".
