    Incredible music and a joy to work with

    Steve went above and beyond to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. With changing plans due to Covid, he was responsive, flexible, and accommodating. The music for the ceremony and reception was SO beautiful. He has an incredible voice and style. One of the most frequent compliments we received regarding the wedding was how amazing the music was. We are blessed to be having a second wedding celebration next year where we can include more family and friends, and are so excited for Steve and the Uptown Sound to be a part of that event as well!

    Best wedding band ever

    To start, Steve and his band were incredible, they sound great and have such a wide range of songs. Steve’s ability to both sing, play guitar, and MC is unbeatable especially at a price that is affordable! Steve answers promptly and always emails back himself, it’s never someone who has to take the time to ask him questions and takes days to get back. Steve is flexible, understanding, helpful, and always willing to work with you to make your event the best it can be. Everyone who attended our wedding asked about the band and complimented how amazing they were. I don’t plan on ever getting married again but I would have them at another event in a heartbeat and will always recommend!!
