Music makes the wedding! In fact, it's the centerpiece of your wedding - and a great, joyous, dynamic wedding band will make your event truly special and memorable. The Love Revival Orchestra is not your typical Wedding Band. We are able offer boutique-style service because we are a REAL band - with world-class musicians who've played hundreds of gigs together and are great friends - we're not a company running a conglomerate of musicians that overbook several dates on the same day and throw together whatever musicians are on their roster. If we book a date with you we give your date the love, joy, professionalism and attention to detail that is second to none in the industry.
The Love Revival is based in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, but also available for destination weddings around the globe. This is not your cheesy, going-through-the-motions tired, old group - this is a Love-powered celebration guaranteed to make your wedding the best party your guests have ever been to!
The Love Revival Orchestra prides itself on versatility and working with clients to develop the best possible musical palette, but we specialize in the Motown of Stevie Wonder, the Soul of Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin, Classic Rock from the Beatles to the Rolling Stones, more recent stuff like Pharrell, Daft Punk and Taylor Swift, hits of the 70's & 80's and New Orleans party music that comes complete with parades.
From creating the ideal band size to customizing the musical genre and song selections for your evening, The Love Revival Orchestra works with every couple to ensure the music is the perfect backdrop for your day. Other services include:

This band is extraordinary. Here are some of the reasons why they are the best you will find:
- They love playing weddings. Not true for a surprising number of wedding bands. A simple thing that makes a big difference.
- They play their own gigs with their own music under a different name. That means they're finishing each other's musical sentences and they're always in fighting shape as a band.
- The sound gear they bring is way beyond what you've seen - they had two guys working sound, out in the room getting the mix right.
- Their song list is great. Way beyond current top 40. Includes lots of great music, including a lot of under-appreciated music, from over the decades. Their arrangements are intricately charted and rehearsed (I went to their rehearsal to practice two songs I played on drums - as far as musical preparation, they're just pros).
- Communication leading up to the wedding was diligent and thoughtful.
They were a huge influence on the feel of the whole thing. The single most important component of the reception, by far. Everyone loved them and many said they were the best they'd heard.
How emphatic can I be? How about this: don't make the mistake of choosing another band. If these guys aren't available, change your wedding date.

Amazing and talented band
Our guests told us that The Love Revival the best band they have every seen at a wedding and that they are hands down an amazing and talented band overall! The guitarist was able to rock the solo in Hotel California, the male and female vocals were phenomenal, and the cocktail hour and solo piano was beautiful. We had an afternoon wedding and the dance floor was full all afternoon with guests dancing and even those that don't like to dance were standing and rockin out enjoying the band. This was the best decision we made for our wedding. We planned our wedding in a very very short timeframe and they were so flexible and able to work with us since different parts of our wedding reception were taking place on 3 different floors and they figured out how we could have great music the entire time. Thank you so much for such a memorable party. We wish we could come see you perform again soon it was so so good!

The Absolute Best Wedding Band
My wife and I saw The Love Revival Orchestra at our friend’s wedding a couple of years ago. They were fun and talented, and it was hands down the best music we had ever heard at a wedding.
After getting engaged and finalizing the wedding date at our church and venue, we immediately contacted the band and booked them without hesitation. From the initial inquiry/quote to the actual booking, the managers were very responsive and professional, offering concise details and instructions.
We maintained a good dialogue with the band over the proceeding months, and our final planning occurred in the month prior to our wedding day. At that point, we worked through a series of questions/points to confirm the basics and logistics (i.e. size of the stage, insurance for the venue, how to pronounce names for announcements, etc.). Importantly, our venue had a formal dress code that the band members were also required to adhere to, and they did not have any objections whatsoever.
The best part of the planning was, of course, the selection of our set list. The band has over 500 songs to choose from over a diverse array of decades and genres, a testament to how versatile they are as performers. Aside from our first and parent dances, as well as one of our finale songs, we let the band control the order and pace of the sets. They did not disappoint, and our dance floor was crowded the entire night with people dancing and singing to everything from classic rock and The Beatles to 80s/90s to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. The band also does a parade style introduction that leads everybody from the cocktail hour into the main dining/seating area, which is a unique, fun way to start and is a huge crowd-pleaser.
Not only did my wife and I love them, but we have not heard anything but the absolute best compliments from our family, friends, and even the staff working at our venue (waiters, managers, etc.) about this band. All we wanted was for everybody, including the band members, to have a fun night, and The Love Revival Orchestra exceeded our already high expectations.
This band’s talent is matched by how nice and cool they are as people, which made both the planning stages and wedding night itself that much easier and more exciting for us. David Mendelsohn, Dean Fransen, and the entire group are absolutely incredible, and we had the best night with them. We plan on seeing them at another wedding or during one of their upcoming live performances, but truly hope to have the opportunity to hire them for another party we host in the future.
If you are getting married or hosting a private event and great music is one of your priorities, this is your band. If you want your wedding night to be the most fun night possible, this is your band. If you have any hesitations, do not think twice about hiring The Love Revival Orchestra.
I assure you, as do all of the previous people who left perfect 5-star reviews on The Knot and WeddingWire, that The Love Revival Orchestra is the absolute best band. Enjoy!!
