After 19 years as a performer, Kurt Titchenell created Brandwine Valley Talent. Since 1999, BVTLive has taken over the Philadelphia entertainment community. Their collection of dance bands offer a wide variety of entertainment styles for all events. Kurt wanted to not only go beyond client expectations, but also give the musicians a greater opportunity.
BVTLive has twelve dance bands and a variety of specialty entertainment and DJs that perform in Philadelphia, New York City, Washington D.C. and more. They have also performed a variety of high profile weddings, like Tina Fey’s! Over the years, BVTLive continues to grow and showcase their excellent musical talent.
We spoke to the president of BVTLive, Kurt Titchenell, about BVTLive and the current Philly music scene.
Kurt told us that BVTLive has served Philadelphia for twenty years, and has performed over 8000 weddings! That’s over 400 weddings a year! Kurt also told us that their wedding perfection and success comes from their “sophisticated live high energy dance bands and ensembles, as well as DJs.”
After twenty years in the business, Kurt has learned a lot about the entertainment industry. He advises that when couples are trying to select the perfect entertain, they should get to know the band leader, and if possible, see the band perform live. Couples can catch BVTLive bands at various events, listed on their website, to see them live. Or also reach out to attend a wedding band showcase.
Kurt also pointed out some of the current wedding trends he is seeing. He said, “more and more couples are requesting throwback dance music, especially 1980’s and 90’s. Also, for those on a budget, we have been pairing our select group of DJs with a live musician or 2.” BVTLive comes above and beyond with their service by assisting brides and grooms with all different wedding needs. Their versatility, talent, and passion truly make BVTLive Philadelphia’s leading party and wedding entertainment agency.
