May 2015 TVK Orchestra was an absolute pleasure to work with! We used them for my wedding on May 23rd, 2015. Everything ran so smoothly and the dance floor was full until the very last song. I would highly recommend TVK Orchestra. - Julia and Matt
May 2015 TVK was by far the best wedding band we could have chosen for our reception. Tom was extremely professional and thorough to work with through the entire process - he made day of coordination a breeze.
- Shannon & Jim
May 2015 From the moment the band started playing until the end of the evening, the dance floor was packed! Everyone LOVED the band! I can't tell you how many times people said, "where did you find TVK? They are great!!". Thank you so much for a great evening! - Martha
APRIL 2015 I didn't get a chance to fully express how thankful we all are for the wonderful performance and coordination you provided for our wedding.

I loved the ceremony music and everyone was just so impressed with how you guys all kept everyone on the dance floor all night!! Thank you for all that you do... you guys really made our night! - Libby & Pat
DECEMBER 2014 We got married on 12/20/14 and TVK was amazing! They exceeded our expectations and were very easy to work with. The dance floor was packed the entire time! Several guests raved about how wonderful TVK was. Also, they managed the timing of the entire night and made sure everything ran smoothly...all we had to do was sit back and dance! Each musician is extremely talented and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone! Thanks Tom and the rest of TVK for such a special night - Amy and Joe
We want to reach out and thank TVK for being a part of our unforgettable day! The dance floor was packed all night and everyone loved the music! You guys are the best and we will not hesitate to recommend you and already have. Thank again for rocking our wedding! - Carl and Ashli
OCTOBER 2014 They played at my wedding and were WONDERFUL! Tom and Carly were always very responsible, answered questions that I think we asked multiple times, and everyone said how much they loved the band and the music. Also, they have a HUGE song list and will learn other requests- just fantastic all around. - Emily E.
SEPTEMBER 2014 We hired TVK for our wedding at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago on 9-13-14. They were beyond easy to work with, so organized and efficient and just overall wonderful and accommodating. All of our guests had such an amazing time dancing and raved about the band the following days and weeks. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a talented band for their upcoming wedding or event! - Jessica & Steve
AUGUST 2014 Professional, timely, talented, exciting, engaging, FUN! These are only a few of the words to describe what we experienced at our daughter’s wedding in August. We could not have been more pleased and thankful for helping us create such a wonderful event. We're sure you perform at hundreds of weddings and events each year, yet you made all of us feel as if our wedding was the only one you cared about. Your style is so engaging that many thought you knew the Bride and Groom personally! We're still receiving thank you notes from our guests thanking us for such as wonderful time. My only regret was that we were so busy dancing and having fun that we neglected to personally thank you. So THANK YOU for making our daughter and son-in-law's day so joyous! – Jean Marie Saidler
AUGUST 2014 TVK was the band for our August wedding at Chicago's Newberry Library, and they were fantastic! We heard again and again from our guests "this band is just fabulous!" and our dance floor was packed all night long. They were everything we could ask for, and so much more. The price was incredibly fair compared to other bands we considered, plus Tom was easy to work with and very responsive. TVK provided all of our music needs for the wedding day--a pianist and cellist for the ceremony, MP3-playing "background music" during the cocktail hour/reception, emcee-ing, plus a band that got everyone on the dance floor!
We especially appreciated how extensive TVK's playlist was. We had lots of great songs to choose from--Motown and pop hits, slow songs and fast, plus a great hora for our Jewish wedding. We were able to select songs we did and didn't want played, and TVK adhered to this perfectly. We requested a few songs that weren't on the list and TVK played these too. Tom also helped us stay on schedule throughout the night, ensuring that toasts, first dances, etc. were all done according to the schedule we provided in advance.
We truly couldn't have asked for anything more in a band. Tom and TVK were professional, responsive, reasonably priced, and oh so good at keeping the dance floor packed! - Laura & Cory
AUGUST 2014 Tom and his band performed at our daughter's wedding in Northern MI. They were outstanding! They helped with the sound system at our outdoor ceremony, played jazz during cocktails, learned a new song for the bride and groom's first dance and rocked it during the dancing! We had 200 guests and the entire group danced the night away! Thanks Tom, for helping to make the wedding an evening of perfection!! - Peggy T.
AUGUST 2014 Terri and i wanted to thank you for the entertainment saturday. it was great, no other word descrides it better. you had the dance floor packed and people were having a blast. your band members and you, will be talked about for a long time and we can't thank you enoughf ro that. - alex & teri
JULY 2014 My husband made the business of finding a wedding band his job, the music at the wedding was very important to him, and he took the job very seriously. He scoured the internet and asked many people for recommendations. We looked at ALOT of bands before we made our decision. When it came down to it, TVK was the best band with the most affordable price. They were accessible and responsive through the whole planning process. The day of the wedding, they were spot on. They did an EXCELLENT job announcing the various events and speeches and playing the songs we requested during breaks. The band itself was AMAZING!!!! The dance floor was packed the whole night and everyone had a great time. Tons of guests told us TVK was the best wedding band they've heard and that our wedding was the most fun they've had in a long time. I would HIGHLY recommend them. – Tommy and Amy
JULY 2014 We had the most excellent evening of entertainment for our daughter's wedding at the Michigan Shores Club. The Band leader was well prepared and led the group well in terms of mixes and lengths of each song. Many of our friends who often hire the Ken Arlen Music group, came up to us and said this band is excellent and wondered where we had "found" it. Perhaps as proof of the evening, was we still had many guests still there at 11 when they signed off. The sound was excellent, managed well by the sound engineer. Everyone heard the music without overwhelming the ability to speak in normal tones. - Tom O.
JULY 2014 If you want a band for any type of event look no further than TVK!! We were at a wedding that TVK played and we knew right then that this is who we wanted for our daughter’s wedding. Being "first time" wedding planners it was such a pleasure dealing with Tom and his staff. The way you were guided through the music selections and the details involved in the overall wedding was just fantastic. The band can play ANYTHING perfectly. These aren't a bunch of "20 something" wannabies, they are seasoned professional musicians and it shows! You would have thought that Norah Jones was singing "Come Away With Me" for our last dance! Every song was spot on and the selections were quite varied as was our age groups and the areas of the country everyone came from. Our venue was small and not the greatest for acoustics but you would have thought we were at the Opera house! The volume and sound quality were perfect, Tom knows exactly what he is doing, experience matters!!! Outside of the ceremony itself, music can make or break your special day, hire TVK and your day will be made!!! - John R.
JUNE 2014 TVK played at my daughter's wedding and they were fabulous! Dancing started as soon as the doors opened for dinner and people crowded the dance floor all night. All our friends raved about them and said how much fun they had. They even put up with my husband and his brother joining the band for a song! The emcee was great, really moved the evening along. We would recommend them to anyone! - Mary
May 2014 TVK performed for my daughter's wedding over a week ago and everyone's still talking about how great they were. not one person left because they enjoyed TVK so much. - Carl M
APRIL 2014 We are so happy we booked TVK for our wedding! They truly made the night unforgettable. They were so easy to work with and accommodated to any and everything we needed! The dance floor was packed all night long and our guests are raving about how incredible TVK was! We would highly recommend TVK! - Stephanie & A.J.
April 2014 TVK was PHENOMENAL! I heard excellent reviews on TVK but was somewhat concerned since I had only heard TVK on YouTube. My concerns quickly went away on the wedding night, and TVK was incredible! The dance floor was literally packed the entire night Several friends and family have repeatedly told me that TVK was the best wedding band they had ever heard. Tom was great to work with as we decided on instrumentation, vocalists and a set list. The band did a great job of mixing top 40 songs with older hits that kept the dance floor full all night! TVK's arrangement of Shout was one of the best I've ever heard! I would DEFINITELY go with TVK again! - Katie & Tyler
FEBRUARY 2014 W e used TVK for our wedding and could not have been happier. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to use a band because it can be hit or miss, but TVK was definitely a hit! They did an incredible job and had our guests on the dance floor all night. Many of our family and friends were talking about how great the band was at our brunch the following morning. Tom was easy to work with and very knowledgeable, he responds quickly and shows true interest in making your day perfect. They are professional and organized and most importantly, they sound amazing. I would definitely recommend them! We are so happy we chose TVK. - Shay & Patrick

OCTOBER 2013 We had TVK as the band at my wedding and they were absolutely perfect for the most memorable night of our lives! Everyone had the best time and people are still talking about the music we had at our wedding a month later. Some guest were hesitant when I told them we were going to have a band at our wedding, but TVK proved ALL of them wrong with shining stars! They not only sounded amazing but the band members are awesome, very professional and everyone did a great job. The voices were amazing as well as the music. Tom is great to work with and he will do whatever he can to make your night perfect and customize it to be what you truly want. I could not have enough good things about this band as a suggestion for future brides looking for music for the wedding...they are worth every penny and I would not have changed it for the world!” Thanks TVK for everything! - Lindsey & Kevin
OCTOBER 2013 W e cannot thank you enough for helping us make our wedding nights one of the best nights ever. I cannot tell you how many times people complimented the band.
