I don’t think I can say enough about Uptown Band. Having amazing music makes the reception what it is and I can honestly say that Uptown Band made our reception beyond fabulous! They played music during our cocktail hour and Erich MC’d the entire wedding for us. They never missed a beat and it is so obvious that they are true professionals.

Erich is so easy to work with and truly wants to give you an amazing experience for your wedding. The quality of music and vocals is out of this world. They had everyone on the dance floor all night long. One of their best qualities is the ability to read a crowd, it seemed like they knew exactly how to keep people engaged and on the floor all night. Erich actually had a cold and wasn’t feeling well the night of our wedding, but you would have never known it. All I can say it they are such a class act and we could not be happier that we were able to book them for our wedding!

I cannot say enough about the Uptown Band! You know a band is special when you heard them at a wedding 4 yrs prior and still remember them. Everyone was raving about them and how much fun they had. I think everyone stopped dancing to watch Jennifer KILL it on "At Last." They had the dance floor packed and even had my cousin who never dances, whip off his jacket and join in. Erich was amazing to work with and made me feel at ease that I had made the right choice. No need to see them- just book them now!! Thank you, Thank you to the Uptown Band!

Uptown Band did a phenomenal job at my wedding!!! They are incredibly fun, easy to work with, and can really get the party started and going all night! They play songs from today and older hits - a very wide range! So many of my guests commented on how great they were and you could just tell by how much fun people were having on the dance floor. We didn't want them to stop playing! So much talent! We were so pleased with how they did and highly recommend them to others planning a wedding!

There are so many wonderful things to say about this band I don't know that I'll have enough space. Erich and Jenifer are not only talented, they're wonderful people to work with. The band had guests on the floor dancing the entire night - I can't remember the last time I was at a wedding where that happened. They made my husband and I feel like a million bucks. Everyone is still raving about how incredible the band was.

I came across the Uptown Band when I was looking for my wedding entertainment. My husband and I wanted a PARTY, not just the typical DJ that most people have at their weddings. Our requirements made it hard to find the right band. We wanted to find both a male and female lead, a band that knew the most current and upbeat music, and was willing to either learn, or already knew how to perform the Hora - the Jewish dance where the Bride and Groom are lifted up in a chair. Typically, this criteria also comes with a hefty price tag, but the Uptown Band was a reasonable price with EVERYTHING we were looking for! They even agreed to travel to Virginia Beach, VA, all the way from Pennsylvania, for the event. A few weeks before the wedding, we spoke with Erich, the band leader, and he created a set list specifically for us. Their professionalism was beyond amazing. The week of the wedding, we received a phone call that there had been a serious accident and Jenifer was not going to be able to perform. Instead of cancelling or coming without a female lead, he had already found a replacement for Jenifer (and she ended up being just as amazing). After the wedding, many of my guests told me how great the band was, how they loved that the band was so interactive with the guests, and how they had so much fun dancing all night long! I highly recommend the Uptown Band!

The Uptown Band made our big night. 3 moths later, family and friends are still saying how much fun they had at our wedding. The band was engaging, playing old time favorites to new hits. Erich, the band leader, was incredible to work with; his professionalism and knowledge was greatly appreciated. The Uptown Band was like having a private concert - one we wish I could relive over and and over. As one of our favorite vendors, we would definitely recommend the Uptown Band.

From the very beginning Uptown band impressed us by how very helpful, accommodating and flexible they were. Erich was particularly helpful in the planning stages- he gave us ideas for how to coordinate the event without ever pushing his ideas on us. And although they sounded good on the website, in person they are even better and far exceeded our expectations. We warned them that we had a very lively dance crowd, and they were more than up for the challenge.  They read the crowd and matched the energy the entire evening. Our guests were extremely impressed by their musical talent, and they were a joy to listen to and interact with. They even worked ahead of time with my husband, the groom, so that he could sing a surprise song for me. They also were more than happy to let his father play clarinet with them during Hava Nagilah. The best part is that while we couldn't have had a better, more accommodating and talented band, they were also the most reasonably priced!!
Erich "emceed", and was happy to say exactly what we asked him to. He was fun and personable during announcements, but never obnoxious. He helped make our wedding day worry free. Although the rain finally arrived during the last song, the band was so great that they kept the floor packed and we ended the night dancing in the rain. We all loved them, can't say enough good things. If we were getting married again, we'd go with them in a heartbeat. You won't find a better band than this, and you can't beat their price.
Thanks Uptown!!

I wish I could give the Uptown Band a "10" in all categories because they deserve it! I cannot say enough great things about this band. After much research, we chose the Uptown Band after watching them in person... there was no debate - hands down the best we saw! The value that you get for this level of service and quality can't be beat. I went to a friend's wedding recently who had a very expensive band that was part of a larger entertainment group - they couldn't even compare to the amazing Uptown Band. Our dance floor was packed the entire night and our videographer even commented that he had never seen so many people on one dancefloor! The variety of songs were impressive and the crowd interaction was unparalleled. Erich is so easy to work with and made sure that our special dances were memorable. All of my guests RAVED about this band and I have to say the band truly made our wedding a party! You need to book this band NOW!!!
