Tim and I cannot thank you enough for playing at our wedding in Milwaukee. You guys were absolutely amazing and all or guests could not stop stop raving about you all the next day. Our guests are still talking about you. Tom, you were such a pleasure to work with and totally eased any worries. We loved all the songs that were played and thank you so much for letting us come up on stage to sing Mony Mony! We wish we could do it all over again because it was so much fun!

Thank you again! Johanna and Tim


We just got back from our honeymoon a few days ago and got your lovely note...we are the ones who should be thanking you!! The band was fantastic--everyone has told us it was the highlight of the night. We are so thrilled with how everything turned out, from the ceremony through the end of the night. You were so great to work with, and your band is so talented. We will definitely be recommending you to friends!

Thanks for making our wedding so much fun, and have a great holiday season.

Best, Stacy & Tim


Thank you so much for everything you did and helped us with throughout the planning process. Everything on Saturday was absolutely perfect!! Everyone loved the band and so did we! And the ceremony music was gorgeous!

Thank you thank you thank you!!!! - Lauren & Evan


Just wanted to say thank you to you and your incredible band for an amazing evening!! It was truly spectacular! All of our guests were so impressed and enjoyed themselves! You helped us make our special day that much more fun! Sincerely appreciate it and will recommend you to many in the future! 



Thank you SO much for being a part of our wedding this past weekend. The music was absolutely amazing from the ceremony all the way through the last DJ set. The dancefloor was packed the entire time and us and our guests had so much fun dancing the night away. We received a ton of compliments on the music and how high energy the band was. Thank you for being an integral part of making our wedding such a memorable night! It was a pleasure working with you and we will not hesitate to recommend TVK to any of our friends in search of a wedding band in the future. 

Thank you again!!! Christina & Doug


We want to thank you for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. We have gotten endless compliments from absolutely everyone. We knew we made the right decision when our 90 year old grandmother loved the music as much as our 30 year old friends. We were so impressed with our first dance song especially, that is something we will never forget!  The music during the cocktail hour was perfect for the setting as well.The dance floor was packed all night and that is exactly what we wanted. You were so easy to work with and we hope to work with you again in the future, we cannot thank you enough! 

Best, Alex and Kelsey

Thank you again for an incredible performance at Jordan and Deanna's wedding!!! We have received many compliments about your band and how much fun the wedding was, in large part because of the band. The music was outstanding and the song choices - especially American Pie - really allowed our celebration to be memorable. 

Moreover, your kind gesture to let Deanna sing and Jordan play the guitar was one of the highlights of the evening. I am sure that is one of the things we will remember most. 

Much appreciation from us. I hope our paths cross again in the not too distant future.

All the best, Jeff and Gwen

Wow! Oh what a night...You guys were the best band and our 215 guests agree but you already know that because they were all on the dance floor! You were right when you said you read the crowd to see what gets everyone going. Thank you for all you did to make our wedding such a wonderful celebration! You all exceeded our expectations. Mary and Fred

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding such a memorable occasion. We had the best time dancing and received so many compliments on the band. We were so pleased with how well the band played. 

Thanks again, Phil and Katie 


Your band has been the talk of all of our friends and family. The music was absolutely perfect and our friends cannot stop talking about how great you guys were. I have already received a request for information from a friend who wants to use you for her wedding this summer. THANK YOU!   Anne and Jeff


TVK Orchestra was exceptional! We had our wedding December 2016 at Hotel Baker. The summer of 2015 our sister hired them for her wedding - and we decided to do the same. Our mom performed Cabaret with the orchestra - and it was outstanding. In a world where everything is digitized - your wedding should be an experience of a lifetime - and going with a live orchestra is the way to go. We met with Tom several times - and he also met us at the venue - just to go over logistics - and that was time well spent. If you want a truly amazing experience - hire them. We had a 9 piece orchestra - and then included an additional guitar at the last minute - and they were able to accommodate all of our requests. TVK Orchestra will work with your venue - and create a timeline for you to work with. THANK YOU TVK ORCHESTRA!!!         Carmen


We knew one of the areas we were willing to "splurge" on was hiring a band instead of a DJ. My husband's parents and brother had attended a wedding where TVK Orchestra played and they had glowing recommendations, but we still researched a few other options. In the end, no other band offered the same value and quality as TVK — so we booked them in January for our November wedding. And we are SO GLAD we did! Consummate professionals, high-energy, and so talented. TVK provided a perfect string trio for our ceremony and a supremely amazing 5-piece band and three talented singers for our reception. The dance floor was packed the entire night, and our guests raved about the great variety and energy that a live band brings. Thank you, TVK, for a unforgettable night.

Tom and the TVK Band are Phenomenal! We found them on Yelp and hired them for our 10-15-16 wedding. We had a string trio for our ceremony and a 9 piece band for our reception at the First United Methodist Church of Chicago and The Palmer House. Each Member was nothing but excellent! We so respect each of the musicians and vocalists talent! The ceremony music was so beautiful and the reception band kept the dance floor PACKED allllll night! Tom and the TVK band are by FAR the best in Chicago!! Thank you so much for everything!                                                              April


I agree with every review written on this site. TVK Orchestra is the one thing you need to complete the most unbelievable wedding reception you will ever have. Where do I start... 1) Professional - Tom took the time to drive to Milwaukee to meet with us IN PERSON for 30minutes, during rush hour! Who does that?! He made it his goal from day 1 to make this event as much about us and as amazing for us as possible. He coordinated with the other vendors to ensure his time line matched theirs. He took the time to get to know every aspect of our wedding. Top notch. 2) Flexible - Throughout the entire wedding reception the band was always receptive to everything that was happening. Whether that was when to announce different events throughout the night, letting our family members play the drums during "Superstition" or sing "Satisfaction," or letting us hand out glow in the dark tambourines during the dance party, they were accommodating at every venture. 3) Musicians - This band sounds amazing. They will not only learn just about any song that you ask them too, but they'll play it like you've never heard it. They learned "That Girl" by Justin Timberlake for our first dance. They played these amazing medleys of songs during our dance party. Bottom line is, they have it all. You will not be disappointed. I can't tell you how many people have told me since the wedding that our wedding was one of the best they have ever been to (including one person who found it more fun than his own... haha). I would highly recommend them, and I would hire them again in a heart beat.                 Andrew


I just wanted to drop a personal note of thanks to you and your staff for an amazing wedding night.  Casey and I have had so many compliments about the whole wedding and, in particular, our fantastic band!  Your staff did a phenomenal job and the bride and groom could not be more pleased.  The dance floor was fully occupied and a great time was had by all.  What a fantastic celebration!

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you again for making this event one to remember.  We have had many requests for your contact information and have happily passed it along. Casey and Lori

Beth and I wanted to send you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed TVK. They were absolutely amazing and we received so many compliments from our guests about their performance.  

We were wondering if you or the band can send over a signed copy of the set list.  We would love to have that as one of our wedding memories. TVK went above and beyond.           Andrew and Beth

Wow, THANK YOU!!  Craig and I cannot thank TVK enough for all of the music on our wedding day!  The string music was absolutely gorgeous and spot on, as was the piano music during dinner.  As for the band, whoa, we were absolutely blown away!  Even better than we could have imagined, which is saying so much.  Tom, you were such a pro to work with and you helped make our wedding day so special.  Music is such an important part of our lives and you provided one incredible soundtrack for us.  We can't thank you enough for playing all of the songs we requested (and more!) and it made our day that we could walk back down the aisle as husband and wife to a song that means so much to us - thank you, thank you, thank you for making "This Must Be The Place" happen.  We were beyond thrilled to hear it and it was perfect!!  Besides getting married, all we wanted on our wedding day was a packed dance floor and boy was it ever.  We had such a fun time dancing the night away and we owe all of that to you!  Judging by the dance floor, I think it's safe to say that everyone had a great time.  We received soooo many compliments on the band - I will be letting every newly engaged couple know about TVK!  Thank you, thank you, thank you……we had the best day of our lives and we can't thank you enough for being a part of it.                                           Andrea and Craig


I cannot say enough good things about TVK Orchestra. Booking TVK is one of the first things we did and probably the very best! My friend recommended TVK to us after she heard them play another wedding.

Our dance floor was PACKED from the minute TVK started until 12:30a when they ended the music. Choosing the band was such a big and important decision for us because we wanted our wedding reception to be a really fun party. And a big, really fun party it certainly was, thanks to TVK! I would recommend this band to every bride one hundred times over. On a day when logistics matter and you really want to be able to rely on the vendors, TVK is the perfect band. We never had any worries about our band thanks to Tom's prompt and polite responses and ability to work within our budget to create the perfect sound. My husband and I, along with our entire family, are just so thrilled with the big party that was our wedding reception. We owe so much of that fun vibe to Tom and TVK! Caitlyn & Luke


We had our daughter's wedding at Cafe Brauer. We researched alot of bands are were very happy with Tom and TVK! We also hired his string quartet for the ceremony and jazz ensemble for cocktail hour and they were excellent. The dance floor was packed the entire evening. My husband and daughter danced to "Unforgettable" and it was beautiful! Received numerous compliments from our guest! Thank you TVK for an exceptional evening!                                                                            Ellen




We knew TVK Orchestra had exactly the sound we were hoping for from just the first two songs were heard from them. Classic brass, stunning vocalists, and an energy which you just can’t describe when you listen to them play. We met with Tom shortly after hearing their demo, and he came to our apartment to talk through the details and learn more about what they can offer. Their set list was so amazingly extensive and Tom encouraged us to let us know which were our favorites, or least favorites, and they would be happy to accommodate.

We ended up with a short list of must haves and must nots, a new custom song for our first dance, but otherwise we liked the idea of letting them feel out the vibe of the crowd and react accordingly when it came to choosing the next song. And we couldn’t have made a better choice, as they kept the energy through the roof, and the dance floor packed all night! We can’t thank Tom and the Orchestra enough for everything, and even now 5 weeks later, we continue to get compliments on how great the band was on our big day! Thanks for everything TVK!!!                                                               Katy and Steve
