    The ONLY band you should consider

    Steve and the Uptown Sound were a huge hit at our wedding and kept the energy going all night long! Steve could not be more accommodating and worked very hard to ensure all of our requests and specifications were met. He and the band learned a new song for our first dance, customized specific music for the introductions and remained highly interactive with our crowd the entire night. The band was a hit with all ages! In addition to the band, Steve performed a solo acoustic set during our outdoor cocktail hour which set the tone for the entire event. Of all the vendors we dealt with, Steve stood out with regards to his level of professionalism, degree of communication, helpful suggestions and overall degree of service. We can't recommend Steve and The Uptown Sound enough! They are a blast!

    One of a kind, incredible, made our wedding nighy

    STEVE AND HIS BAND WERE AMAZING.

    Steve is naturally one of the nicest guys I have ever met. Him and his band were so easy to work with, and made the music portion of our wedding extremely stress free.

    As far as their performance, they were a 10/10. Their sound is amazing, and I love how they incorporate today's popular music into their set lists. Our entire wedding crowd danced all night and I loved every second of it. Since the wedding we've gotten countless compliments on Steve and his band and how much fun they made our night.

    I know it's cliche to say but we can't imagine our special night without Steve and his band!

    Whatever you do, book them for your event!

    Thanks Steve!

    Zach and Alison Bouley
