One of the best decisions we made!

Steve Balesteri and The Uptown Sounds are such a talented crew. Our guests are still talking about how incredible the music at our wedding was! Steve was extremely easy to work with, very quick to respond to my many questions, personable, found a way to say “yes” to all of our music requests, and he’s just such a nice guy. I cannot recommend Steve and his band enough. You will not regret it!

Amazing sound!

Steve and his band were amazing! Steve was so accommodating with any changes and he was able to play a lot of the songs requested. They kept the crowd dancing, including myself all night. The band has such a good sound and I’m so happy I booked them for my wedding!
