About

Up and Down the East Coast with One Goal.

Bigg Romeo has always wanted to be the best that as a group we could be.

A “Best of Philadelphia” Party Band, Bigg Romeo is an 8-piece high-energy wedding and dance band. Guests of all musical tastes will dance the night away to the rhythms and beats of yesterday and today. Bigg Romeo is the only choice when a full dance floor is your top priority in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas. (We also play anywhere on the East Coast and if you want us on the West Coast we’ll come there too!)

With hundreds of songs in our arsenal, we perform the music that you and your guests want to hear. Most important, we perform at a volume level acceptable to each guest and appropriate to the size and set up of your reception or event area. This is wedding music at its best!

Fronted by the charismatic duo of Sandy Costello and Franco Sicilia since 1996, Bigg Romeo brings the stage to life with an electric performance and powerhouse vocals. Each member sings both lead and back-up vocals, adding to the melodies and harmonies from the songs you know and love. Andrea Baretto adds a third lead singer and 6th harmony to the band. Add the “Feel the Love” horns and we have a party your family will be talking about for years to come. This is just a small part of what makes Bigg Romeo the best in the Philadelphia wedding market.

From song selections, arrival and introductions, through your first dance and beyond, our Band Leader, Franco is your single point of contact throughout all the planning stages of your event.

Bigg Romeo is not an entertainment agency or orchestra with many bands and various musicians that tend to get “mixed and matched.” We are one band of professional, formally trained musicians who have rehearsed and played together since 1996. The band that you hire is the one that will perform at your reception: the one and only Bigg Romeo.

We look forward to hearing from you.

100% hire Bigg Romeo for your day!! They were absolutely perfect, kept everyone on the dance floor all night long!! So easy to work with!

100% hire bigg Romeo for your special day!!

All we wanted was a dance floor full of people, and Bigg Romeo delivered!! Thank God for Franco, i am NOT a planner, he coordinated with the venue so I didn’t have to, literally took care of everything. Kept the perfect flow for the evening going, coordinated with our bridal party to get us all in one spot and in the places we needed to be. When we spoke prior to the wedding, he already had a vision in mind to make our day a party and he did!! There was a perfect mix of older and new music that kept guests of all ages on the dance floor and having a great time. The amount of compliments we’ve received over the last few weeks are overwhelming. Everyone is raving about how much fun they’ve had, how they’ve never seen a full dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG, and how genuinely awesome the band was. Could not recommend this group more! They were SO fun and we had the best time! I danced the entire time!!

5 stars are not enough but hey!

Hands down a perfect evening. Franco is funny, caring, texts you countdowns and just makes planning a joy. He will promise the moon and has the band and crew to back it up. Bigg Romeo is fantastic. Andrea and Sandy were great with the kids, and amazing singers. The band was the easiest and most stress free portion of the evening. Thank you, thank you!

Best decision ever

I first heard Bigg Romeo at a local bar & then followed them to other local bars to see them. My entire family came out to see them and said they were amazing and I knew I had to have them for my wedding. From the first dances to the rest of the night, planning, song choices, everything was so easy and stress free. Franco is the best and I am so thankful they were able to preform for my wedding!
