Amazing talent, wonderful people, and an all night dance party!
Steve Balesteri and Uptown Sound were absolutely incredible and MADE our wedding night. We had a violinist play during the ceremony, Steve on vocals + a horn for cocktails, and the full 9-piece band for the reception, and received endless compliments all night long! The band was amazing to dance to and Steve was wonderful to work with :) I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a knock-out wedding band that keeps your guests on the dancefloor all night long!Sent on 09/23/2019

We could not have picked anyone better than Steve and The Uptown Sound for our wedding
We couldnt imagine having anyone other than Steve and The Uptown Sound play at our wedding. Our friends and family love them so much that we've had them play at weddings as well as other events. Steve is so sweet and easy to get along with, he makes at least this one aspect of your wedding plain painless. Everyone at our wedding, from young to old, loved them and were dancing all night.Sent on 09/27/2019

Steve Balesteri Music was hands down the best choice we made for our wedding. Steve was friendly, accessible, responsive, and an overall delight to work with. He played soft, romantic, acoustic versions of our song choices for our ceremony and he and his band rocked all of our favorite songs throughout the night. They even took the time to learn and perform special songs just for us. He performed our special song last for the night and let us dance for a memorable moment to finish off the night. If you’re looking for live music, Steve’s your guy. Plus, his services are incredibly affordable. You can’t go wrong!Sent on 07/27/2019
