The UpBeat Band and UpBeat Orchestra is one of Chicago's most exciting and creative party bands.

Why Choose UpBeat?

Quality Musicianship

Our group is a real family of exceptional and versatile talent – and having played together extensively, you won’t see our musicians “buried in the sheet music.” Our musicians are career pros, most with music degrees. Our front line has national performance credits ranging from The Temptations to R Kelly. Also, our front vocalists project a warm, distinctive, and fun presentation, making the dance floor inviting, and when appropriate, will tastefully interact with the audience. We take pride in creating an amazing dance party celebration.

Dance party by design

Our orchestra rehearses song medleys that seamlessly segue from one song to another, and create a balanced “dance party” momentum by design. With our insight, experience, and musical preparation, we go the extra mile to make sure all the important music and hosting details you choose are executed perfectly. Also, we like to plan music and dance party concepts that makes the event special and distinctive–for example, at a recent dance party, we had the bridesmaids join the band on stage for the last chorus of the salsa party song ‘Hot Hot Hot’ – this was a huge hit with the family. Also, with our commitment to customized wedding planning, we put great care in organizing tasteful music selections, specialized arrangements, and dance party concepts that you envision for your event, including swing/jazz, R&B, Motown, Disco, Salsa, Rock, Funk, ballads, contemporary pop and classics – our large and versatile song list spans the last five decade

A great value with proven reliability

Are you looking for a world class band at the best price? UpBeat's five members are all lead vocalists and multi-instrumentalists, and we achieve a big polished sound at the best value in Chicago. When we say we are ‘Chicago’s entertainment source,’ what we mean is that you are not paying a group of salespeople, a middleman, or exorbitant premiums to get a world class group – including all administration, sound and lights. The complete service we provide is all ‘in house’ – we don’t job out sound or AV, we have a dedicated pro sound engineer, and with our insight, experience, and preparation, we go the extra mile to make sure all the important details you choose are executed perfectly – including necessary rehearsal, specialty songs, and custom arrangements. You can view our extensive client list and sourced references on our site, and we invite you to come see us perform! Complete planning, necessary hosting, pro tech support – such as use of cordless mics, is always included at no extra charge. Chicago's UpBeat Wedding Band! Read less

Michael Cascio, UpBeat Band & UpBeat Orchestra were the perfect band for our wedding! They were very professional and are extremely talented musicians. My wife and I had the time of our lives dancing the night away at our wedding. I am a drummer and I sat in with the band for a song. It was a lot of fun. I highly recommend UpBeat to everyone! Thanks Michael!

Michael and the Upbeat Orchestra were simply phenomenal. They put together a great plan ahead of time for the wedding so that everything flowed smoothly. They used our preferences for music and also suggested certain other songs to make sure there was an eclectic mix everyone would enjoy. They even learned a couple of songs that we requested. They promised that people would be out on the dance floor and enjoying themselves, and they truly lived up to it. I have never seen a bigger crowd consistently out on a dance floor for an entire evening. Simply put, everyone at the Upbeat Orchestra was fantastic and I highly recommend them!

Where to start?! UpBeat performed at our wedding and they were TRULY amazing. Michael took a lot of time with us and our wedding planner in preparation for the day to make sure the music and timing was exactly what we wanted. They assisted with audio for the ceremony (on the same site) that turned out beautifully and then it was time for the dancing to start. My husband and I were nervous because we had only seen videos of their performances but from the first note we were COMPLETELY blown away by the sound, quality, and professionalism of the band. Not only did they provide the amazing non-stop dance party we were looking for, but they stuck it out through a crazy rainstorm to make the most memorable day of our lives even more so. People are still talking about the dance party and how the band was the best they've ever seen. We really can't say enough about them and would hire them all again in a heartbeat. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU UpBeat!

Michael and the Upbeat Orchestra performed for our wedding and they were terrific! Michael was so organized and professional - everything ran so smoothly. We used their violin and piano players for the ceremony and they were able to learn and play beautifully some custom music that we requested. The band was so flexible and they learned songs that we requested for the reception. My Dad is a musician and they even allowed him to perform a couple of songs with them! We couldn't believe how accommodating they were, but mostly we let Michael do his thing because he really knows what he is doing. They truly made our wedding a special night and an event that will always be remembered. We had so many guests tell us it was one of the most fun weddings they have ever attended, and it is all thanks to Michael and his incredible band!

Upbeat performed at my daughters wedding. Michael and the band did an outstaning job of keeping the dance floor packed for the entire 3 hours. PLUS the musice played during cocktails and dinner was perfect. PLUS Michael made the everning run very smooth by putting together a timeline on every minute. Thus i was able to relax and party knowing exactly when i needed to give my toast etc. Very organized, professional, talented. What really made the evening was that I think the Band enjoyed themselves as much as the guests. It was one big party! You can not go wrong with Upbeat Orchestra.

Dear Michael and UpBeat band! Thank you so much for playing our wedding! Everyone there said you were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. We cannot thank you and your band enough for giving us the dance party of our dreams. Everyone was so impressed by your band! We have had multiple people tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and we couldn't have done it without you! We are also so grateful to your team for being so supportive and inclusive of my cousin Alain. Michael and his team were gracious enough to let my cousin Alain play several songs with the band and it was so wonderful! I know it was so special for him and all of us, so thanks again for being so flexible and trusting of his talent. We will be sure to tell everyone who asks for advice on selecting bands how great you were. We HIGHLY recommend UpBeat Music Productions for your wedding! You will be more than happy with your choice if you select them!! :-D

We worked with Upbeat Orchestra for our August 2013 wedding and had a blast! We had a 9 piece orchestra (with an extra horn added on last minute), and the music was awesome. Upbeat has such great talent in both singers and musicians that every song we asked them to play ( and the 2 songs we asked them to learn for us) was fantastic. Upbeat kept the dance floor packed all night from start to finish and played a wide array of tunes that everyone from our friends to our grandmothers could enjoy.

Michael is great to work with and extremely professional. We met with Michael in person and went over our playlist multiple time to ensure we were all on the same page. He was very adamant that our wedding would have nothing less than perfection on the musical front and Upbeat delivered. Michael did a great job emceeing our wedding and kept the party rolling. Weeks after our wedding, our guests were still taking about how incredible our band was!

I don't have enough positive things to say about Michael and the Upbeat Orchestra. From the very first meeting, it was clear that Michael was very customer-focused and detail-oriented in terms of making every little piece of the reception move like clockwork, and it did! He was very knowledgeable and able to make a lot of great recommendations to us - I was really overwhelmed with the details of planning our event and he was SO helpful. He was so amazingly responsive through the entire process - honestly I would have never expected this kind of high-level customer service from a band. Before we booked this band, we went to see them perform, we were standing outside of the ballroom of some corporate event, and MORE THAN ONE set of people came up to us saying things like "that band is amazing! you should go in there!!" Needless to say, we booked them shortly thereafter. The performance they gave at our wedding was phenomenal! Our guests - young and old- could not stop complimenting the band, people were like "where did you FIND these guys?!?!" They were very open to learning something new for us, and they learned not one but two new songs at our request, one of which we used for our first dance, and I was SOOO happy with the way that turned out! I will never forget it. Our guests were partying on the dance floor all night, there was never a lull! On top of all this, the band is having FUN doing what they are doing- which is SO important! The 10 piece orchestra gives a real "wow" factor, and their pricing is very reasonable. They offer a great variety of music as well and really work with you to customize your experience. If you are looking to book a wedding band please do NOT miss the opportunity to book the Upbeat Orchestra, you will be more than pleased with your decision. Other than that, I can't say much else other than I will never be able to thank Michael and the Upbeat Orchestra enough for making our wedding reception absolutely perfect!

The best and most important decision of the wedding is always the music. It is what changes a fun wedding to an INCREDIBLE one. From the very start they were extremely responsive and more importantly excited to play for us. We had them play the entire event, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner hour and dancing. Literally there was not one moment the dance floor wasn't packed. We had a great planning session and Michael really was able to pick up on what we loved and what type of vibe we wanted. Although I had many favorite moments, one of the last songs “Shout” topped the night! I cannot say enough about the quality, the enthusiasm, professionalism that this group brings. There is no need to keep shopping around The Upbeat Orchestra is a 110% the way to go!

The Band was fantastic! So many people came up to me during the wedding and said how great the band was. I think it is really nice to have live music during the reception, and people were getting excited as they saw the band starting to set up.

They played a great mix of classic hits and modern songs that people loved. The band also played every song that I requested, as well as learned several new songs for both the wedding ceremony as well as the reception. Michael was super easy to work with, responded to every email, and was great at coaching you along every step (he probably stayed more on top of things than I did). He was also great at MCing at the reception, and kept the night moving along smoothly.

I would definately recommend the upbeat orchestra to anyone looking for a great band to play at their wedding!

Hiring Upbeat Orchestra was one of the best deicisions we made when planning our wedding. We looked at some other bands like Ken Arlen, High Society, etc but they were not in our budget. We feel like we received the same quality of performance (if not better) than some of the other bands in Chicago, for a MUCH better value. Michael was so great to work with, he listens to your needs and does whatever he needs to accommodate what you're envisioning for your big day. The band learned a handful of songs for us, even our first dance and father/daughter song which i didnt choose till a few weeks before the wedding. Upbeat Orchestra did an excellent job performing at our wedding, we received so many compliments about them and the dance floor was packed the entire night!!! Highly recommend!

The UpBeat Band was amazing! We booked music to be played the entire evening, string quartet for the ceremony, piano for cocktail hour, jazz trio during seated dinner, 10 piece band for dancing. Michael Cascio designed/scored the entire evening. Starting with the ceremony, the string quartet learned several new songs, but also adjusted timing/scoring so that it fit within our ceremony. Triumphal March from Aida for the processional, Meditation from Thais mid ceremony, but most exciting was the recessional piece, a blend of “Show Goes On” rap by Lupe Fiasco and Canon in D, Pachabel. We and the quartet received amazing compliments on this song, you can find a similar version on YouTube. I highly recommend you request this song mix because it is so upbeat, yet classy for the ceremony.
During cocktail hour and dinner, they played jazz classics Sinatra, Michael Buble. The party really began when the full 10 piece came out. My husband and I both went to school at Southern schools, so we asked they learn a few country songs. The UpBeat band learned “Its Your Love” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill for our first dance. We also sent the band a video of our dance lessons so they could see our dance ending. They timed the song perfectly to how we had practiced which made the first dance look effortless. They also played “Sweet Home Alabama” for us, and all the “Tide Fans” in the house loved it and sang out the “Roll Tide Roll” in the chorus.
Michael is truly passionate about working with all the wedding couples to deliver a special event that will live up to their expectations. The band played music for all ages including Motown Medley, Tina Turner, Journey, Lady Gaga, Maroon 5. The dance floor was packed the entire time with all generations.
Michael is highly responsive via phone or email, whichever way you choose to communicate. We were very lucky to have found the band and they made the celebration successful.

The UpBeat Band was amazing! We booked music to be played the entire evening, string quartet for the ceremony, piano for cocktail hour, jazz trio during seated dinner, 10 piece band for dancing. Michael Cascio designed/scored the entire evening. Starting with the ceremony, the string quartet learned several new songs, but also adjusted timing/scoring so that it fit within our ceremony. Triumphal March from Aida for the processional, Meditation from Thais mid ceremony, but most exciting was the recessional piece, a blend of “Show Goes On” rap by Lupe Fiasco and Canon in D, Pachabel. We and the quartet received amazing compliments on this song, you can find a similar version on YouTube. I highly recommend you request this song mix because it is so upbeat, yet classy for the ceremony.

We wanted to give you and the rest of the UpBeat Band a BIG BIG thank you!! We had so many compliments about the band and how we "had the best wedding" celebration and I'm pretty sure we couldn't have had such a successful day without you and the band! Our wedding reception went flawlessly, which couldn't have happened without you. The UpBeat Band was fantastic and I would recommend you any day. I can't say thank you enough! We had an amazing night!

Thank you for everything!

My husband (boyfriend at the time) and I attended a wedding in 2010 where UpBeat was performing and we loved every minute of it...we didn't leave the dance floor the whole night! When we got engaged we knew that we HAD to book UpBeat Orchestra for our wedding. We were so excited to meet Michael and his team. From Day 1, Michael was extremely professional and so passionate about his music...we knew from the get go that he was going to be great to work with. As overwhelming as selecting music is with so many choices, Michael helped us throughout the entire process so that it was as smooth as possible, and kept us on track with specific goals that we needed to accomplish by certain dates. He was very flexible when we needed to chat or meet with him, and extremely patient with an indecisive bride. Michael is very organized and efficient... we never worried about anything while working with him. UpBeat not only performed their 10-piece orchestra for our reception, but we also had two violinists perform at our outdoor garden ceremony as well. At both venues, the music was absolutely beautiful and tailored to our tastes. Michael and his team have a way of getting everyone on the dance floor and keeping them there the entire night, which is exactly what we wanted! We are still getting comments today from friends and family about how fantastic the band was. We cannot thank you enough UpBeat for helping make our wedding day that much more amazing!!!

Michael and the Upbeat Band were fabulous! Michael and his band played for my wedding a little over a month ago and they were definitely a crowd pleaser. You are getting an amazing deal for the cost considering the talent level and number of people in the band. The nice thing about the band is that they play music for all ages, so my parents' friends were on the dance floor the whole time too. They have a very large playlist and there was tons of music that I loved and they did a fabulous job with those songs. Michael is a great planner and is very involved and responsive. The band did an amazing job with their performance and energy levels and kept the party going all night long. There was not one lull in the party and the dance floor was always packed. I received tons of compliments on the band and would recommend them to anyone!

UpBeat Band is excellent band that will customize their set for the night based on your preferences. Thier music is executed to perfection and everyone will be dancing. Many people at our July 2011 wedding said it was the best band they have ever heard. Aside from the music, thier director Michael Cascio is a dream to work with. He truly just wants to make your reception as great as possible for you. He goes out of his way to accommodate the bride and groom and thier families. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, reasonably priced, well organized, great sounding band!

I feel so lucky that we found the UpBeat Orchestra!! We honestly could not have asked for a better band to play at our wedding!! From start to finish Michael was such a help. Just talking to him gave me the clearest picture of what the whole night would look like, and made me feel more at ease about the entire reception. He helped us to customize our playlist, and they learned and practiced our first dance song and father/daughter song just for us. We have received so many compliments from guests, some who had never heard a band at a wedding and some who were professional musicians. They had the dance floor packed all night with everyone from our friends that are in their 20s to our parents and grandparents and their friends. They were the best part of the night, and our wedding surely would not have been as successful with out them. They played all night and only took only one short break, which is above and beyond what other wedding bands are doing! They are PHENOMENAL! We are now lifelong fans of the UpBeat Band and Orchestra!

Michael Cascio and the Up Beat Band were AMAZING!! Prior to the big event, our wedding reception, Michael was on top of every little detail. He spoke with the venue and made sue everything was going to work the way we needed it to. He was in contact with me throughout every step of the planning. It took so much stress off of me, it was great. On the reception night, he was great. He had everything exactly where it needed to be and everyone where they needed to be. We had the solo pianist for our ceremony, which was awesome. We had the jazz trio for our cocktail hour and dinner hour, which I absolutley loved. Then we had the 10 piece orchestra for our dance party. All I can say is WOW!!!! They were amazing. I have had so many compliments on how great the band sounded, the great songs they chose and how inviting the dance floor was. They even learned our first dance song just for us... now that is service!! I received a compliment that it was the best wedding that they have been to in 20 years because the band was so awesome!!! It made the whole night so much more enjoyable and special. Michael Cascio and the UpBeat Orchestra gave us a wedding of a lifetime!!!!!!!!!!!

Best. Band. Ever. I was a little concerned at first because their prices were so reasonable, however The Upbeat Band couldn't have been better!!!! My wedding was at Medinah Country Club and was Black Tie optional...not that the band needed to dress up, but they did! They looked great! Their music was amazing and they even learned our special songs, which many bands will not do. They did all our requests and started our party just right with Don't Stop Believin'. They add their own special touch to all their songs and keep the party going. They're very organized and really look like they love what they do. I promise...YOU WILL LOVE THEM!!!!

I honestly can say that Michael Cascio and the UpBeat orchestra were fantastic! We ended up hiring them with only a few months before the wedding but we never once felt like we were rushed or running behind, as Michael was constantly there to answer any questions we had. Instead of being overwhelming like other band leaders we had met, Michael was down to earth and easy going and clearly wanted to make our wedding about US and our guests. My husband and I both have a musical background and we can honestly say that UpBeat sounds FANTASTIC! And to top it off, Michael and the band secretly had worked with my little sister and her boyfriend to surprise us with a special performance of my favorite song, "Lucky". It was truly a magical night thanks to UpBeat!

The UpBeat band made our wedding reception amazing. From the first meeting, Michael Cascio did an amazing job of envisioning the type of reception that we were looking for on our wedding night.

Being in our mid 20's, we wanted our reception to not only appeal to our parents/grandparents, but also have our friends on the dance floor all night. They did a wonderful job of incorporating 80's to current (Lady Gaga, Rihanna, etc). We received so many comments from our guests on how packed the dance floor was all night and how great the band was.

Aside from the night of, Michael took it a step further and contacted our caterer and wedding planner to ensure the reception timeline flowed smoothly and that everyone was on board. I can honestly say that the reception flowed perfectly and much credit was due to the Michael's for his effort to make our wedding a success.

We also used the UpBeat band for our church ceremony music. Marchin did a wonderful job and played every prelude, processional, unity candle, and processional piece that I requested flawlessly.

If you are looking for a Chicago area wedding band that is reasonably priced (in comparison to the other bands in the area), I would look no further than the UpBeat band!

The Upbeat Band not only played at our wedding but helped coordinate the entire day. I wanted a band, my wife wanted a DJ, and now after the Upbeat Band played at our wedding she's really glad that I stuck to my guns on this one. We've gotten a ton of feedback from our guests saying how great the band was and how much fun they had dancing all night. Not only did they play great dance music all night, but they were also very helpful with all other aspects of the ceremony and reception. On the day of our wedding our caterer pulled me aside and let me know how great the band leader (Michael Cascio) was to work with and how he made everything so easy. With all of the normal complications that go along with such a big day, it was great to not have to worry about a thing when it came to the music. And I haven't even mentioned how great he was to work with leading up to the reception. He was very detailed and organized (and accessible/responsive) when it came to the planning of the event, and that was another reason we were so relaxed on our wedding day. We highly recommend The Upbeat Band.

The Upbeat band rocked our wedding this September at theWit hotel. They were unbelievable. Every single one of our guests that has spoken to us since the wedding has mentioned how great they were. We have heard comments such as "best wedding band ever" and "they were unbelievable". Here is what made them so fantastic:

1) Flexibility. The band learned a new song to perform for our first dance. It was pitch perfect. Also, my wife and I had very specific taste. Our guests were predominately young, so we wanted to pass on the traditional wedding songs (think Sugar Pie Honey Bunch) and keep the music geared to a younger crowd. The upbeat band delivered. From the first song of the opening set list (Shook me all night long) to other 80's and current hits, Michael orchestrated a set list that had everyone on the dance floor all night long.

2) Stamina. I honestly can't recall if they took at break at all. Think Springsteen-level stamina. Prior to choosing a band we listened to a number of the big bands across Chicago and were constantly put off by long breaks that most groups would take right when things were starting to get going. Not with the Upbeat band. They are all heart.

3) Price. Upbeat was ~1/3 the price of some of the more well known bands in the city. Add the fact that they performed longer, and better than these other bands and you can understand why we were so thrilled with them.

You have to check out this band. We had a packed dance floor even after the lights were turned on and the bar shut down. It was an amazing night and wouldn't have been the same without this band. If it was possible to give more than 5 stars we would.

Michael Cascio and the Upbeat Band were the highlight of our wedding day! The learned songs especially for our wedding which we thought was perfect for us because we have a large variety of songs/music that we wanted to hear. They played for hours and no one left the dance floor the entire night. The only problem we had was the people wanted to dance on the furniture (that is obviously against what we signed in our venue contract ;) Looking back at picture, everyone is so happy and laughing and jumping all over. It really shows us how great the upbeat band was! People were chanting - ONE MORE TIME, ONE MORE TIME! after songs that they would play! I can't thank them enough. My husband and I can't wait to go see them at festivals or other venues they play at.

After meeting with a few different bands in Chicago we decided to hire Michael Cascio and the Upbeat band. Michael took the time to listen to our needs and was always 100% reliable in answering phone calls or emails. The amount of time which he put into planning the perfect wedding was more then we could have asked for. He even took the time to learn songs specifically for our wedding. His talent and knowledge helped create a magical evening with amazing music starting with the ceremony and up until the last song of the night. The dance floor was full all night long!!! We definitely recommend Michael Cascio and his band for your upcoming event...He will not disappoint.
