    So much more than just amazing entertainment

    Steve Balesteri and The Uptown Sound are so much more than great entertainment. Steve was amazing to work with, especially during a global pandemic. He is extremely organized and eased my stress by paying close attention to detail and ensuring that everything was running smoothly in terms of entrances, first dances, ceremony music cues, speeches, etc. I received endless compliments on the ceremony music as well as the cocktail/reception music! They were SO fun and really brought an amazing energy to our wedding. Thank you SO much for making our wedding unforgettable. I highly recommend Steve Balesteri and The Uptown Sound for your next event!
