Without a doubt the bet part of our wedding
Here's why you should book The Philly Keys. I'm a musician myself who did it for a living for 14 years. When we were researching wedding bands it just got exhausting. Every one we clicked on said THE SAME EXACT THING: 4 lead singers, best band in the world for 10 years, killer horn section, etc. We were about to just close our eyes and pick one because they're all sooo amazing so why waste any more time when we got to see The Philly Keys at my college friends wedding in West Chester, PA. It was a dueling piano show which I was admittedly interested in since nothing of the sort had come up in my search thus far. Simply put, they completely rocked. The set list was created on the spot by guest requests, they were great singers and players but it was their personalities and sense of humor and ability to get everyone engaged in ways that wedding bands simply don't know how to do. And guess what, no one missed the 4 lead singers, or killer horn section etc. bc NO ONE ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT THAT STUFF!! My voice was gone until the middle of the week because they encourage not only dancing but sing alongs from the crowd. So we asked them if they'd travel to Long Branch and they said yes and when they told me their price I literally lol'd and said "dudes we're booking you right now." Brian played ceremony and cocktail music, then we had the set up with The dueling pianos and drummer and I really can't count how many guests said they were the most fun wedding act they'd ever seen. The fact that we actually saved $5,000 by booking them instead of one of our other choices was just icing on the cake. A lot of icing!Sent on 11/14/2018
The Philly Keys's reply:Jim, haha man it sounds like I coached you on what to say here! Seriously you've said all the things I always try to get across to clients but you did it much more eloquently than i could. I should have you write all the content for my website. But really thanks so much for the glowing review my friend. Really means the world to us!

Weeks later, and our guests are still complimenting us on the band..
We hired The Philly Keys to play our wedding at Reading Terminal Market earlier this month, and we can’t say enough good things about them! Brian played piano during our ceremony and worked with a close friend of mine so she could sing a song with him, and was fantastic about recommending different songs for us and providing guidance; we had a non-traditional ceremony and needed some help figuring out a timeline and some appropriate music, and he gave great advice. The band kept things light and upbeat during cocktail hour, and throughout the reception, The Philly Keys made sure that everyone was on the dance floor. We grew up in the 90s/early 2000s and The Philly Keys knew all of the hits that our friends loved from our high school and college years while also incorporating in classics that our parents and their friends enjoyed. They also made the formalities a breeze. One of our main concerns was making sure that people knew where things were around the Market (like where to head for dinner) and that our guests knew they could request songs, and The Philly Keys made sure everyone knew what to do.Sent on 08/22/2019
Brian was extremely responsive to all questions we had throughout the entire planning process. We added a drummer along with the dueling pianos, and couldn’t believe the value of Philly Keys packages compared to some of the other live entertainment we had considered. We would 100% recommend Philly Keys for anyone getting married or having an event of any kind - our guests are still raving about them!

Highlight of our wedding
We had our hearts set on live music for our wedding but the prices for "typical" wedding bands were out of our budget. I stumbled upon the Philly Keys while browsing for other options, and they seemed almost to good to be true: less expensive than other bands, great reviews, and the unique "dueling pianos" aspect. Brian answered all of our questions and was easy to work with. At our wedding, the Philly Keys exceeded all of our expectations! They had people dancing all night, played a great variety of music, and just added a really fun vibe to the wedding. We included a drum, guitar, and horn along with the pianos, but I feel that they would be great with any number or combination of instruments. If you are on the fence about booking this group, DO IT! They were definitely a highlight of our wedding.Sent on 07/20/2019
