Best decision we made for our wedding!
When planning our wedding, we immediately knew we didn't want to have just a DJ play pre-recorded music like most all weddings do - we wanted something unique and different. Hiring a full band can be extremely expensive, so we knew that was probably not an option for us either. Then we found The Philly Keys and I am SO grateful that we found them! Brian was amazing to work with, he was so responsive to all of my emails and MANY questions. He even worked with us through many changes we had to make to our wedding due to COVID-19. We had to change the date and then the venue and with all the changes, Brian was so accommodating and easy to work with. Brian played acoustic guitar for our ceremony which was absolutely PERFECT and set up his sound system so that our officiant could use it for the ceremony as well. Brian also was the MC and kept everything moving throughout the night exactly as we had laid it out for him in our timeline. The Philly Keys made our wedding so memorable, I cannot thank them enough. All of our guests had the best time and it's all thanks to Brian and The Philly Keys. If you are looking for a unique music experience for your wedding you absolutely MUST use The Philly Keys!! I can't wait to go see them play shows elsewhere because I love them so much!Sent on 07/16/2020

One of the best wedding decisions we made!
Picking the Philly Keys was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day! The Philly Keys are easily the best value we found for live music and my husband and I loved working with this very talented group of musicians. We had known we wanted live music, but struggled to find a band in a budget that we loved until we found The Philly Keys!Sent on 02/17/2020
From the start, Brian was so easy to work with and made planning this part of our day so easy with his quick responses to my many, many questions. We used them for MC, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The Philly Keys were happy to learn a few instrumental Broadway songs for our ceremony, which we so appreciated. For the reception, they got the guests up and dancing and the dance floor was packed all night! We really got all the sounds and energy of a larger band for such an affordable price. We got so much feedback from our guests on how much fun they had getting to make requests and how cool the dueling pianos were. One of my favorite memories of the night was the very last song they did-Piano Man by Billy Joel. The Philly Keys invited the guests to encircle my husband and I and sing along to the song and help to "serenade" us. It was such a special memory to have with all of our loved ones, and such a cool surprise. Highly, highly, highly recommend this band!

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!
