I'm telling you, this is your wedding band!
Steve was amazing from day 1 when we contacted him almost a year out from our wedding. We were planning a wedding from out of town and he made time to meet with us around our busy travel schedule when we were in Buffalo. It was so helpful to meet him in person and talk over things. He was so meticulous and thought of everything! We wanted to add another musician to the band sort-of last minute and it was no problem whatsoever! He had a list of songs and was super open to everything we absolutely wanted and did not want to hear played. He even sent us the music mix for bridal party introductions in advance so we could make sure we liked which pieces of the songs he chose! The day of the wedding, when I tell you these people took ONE break the whole night, I am not kidding! They jammed the entire night and the dance floor was FILLED! They read the crowd so well and just played song after song after song. Their mix of new and classic was perfect for our guests of all ages! Could not recommend more!Sent on 02/12/2019

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!Sent on 12/30/2018

One of a kind, incredible, made our wedding nighy
STEVE AND HIS BAND WERE AMAZING.Sent on 11/13/2018
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!
