    The Uptown Band absolutely rocked our day!

    My wife and I cannot say enough good things about Erich Cawalla and the rest of the Uptown Band. As we continued to try and schedule and reschedule our wedding during this pandemic, Erich was there every step of the way with us. We spent hours on the phone talking out different scenarios and situations to where we could make our BIG day happen, and he would time after time explain, "Vince, I'll play anytime, anywhere. We're going to make this happen!". This is a true testament to the type of people Erich and the rest of the Uptown Band are.

    Aside from being incredible to work with, their body of work speaks for itself!!! Erich is an incredible performer and musician, and the rest of the band is just as talented. They don't only just play great music, but they all know how to perform. Their ability to get a party started, keep it going, and leave the entire crowd wanting more is exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We could not have chosen a better group to help us celebrate than Erich Cawalla and the rest of the Uptown Band.

    Five star showmanship from The Uptown Band! It's a pleasure working so closely with another TOP NOTCH band in Central PA!

  • Just Breathe. Weddings & Events Wedding Planners

    Working with Erich and The Uptown Band is always, and I mean always, an amazing party with great energy. The Uptown Band wants nothing but to perform their best and impress their clients and their guests and they ALWAYS do. I have had the pleasure of working with them a handful of times and even when a timeline changes, they are quick to add another song to keep the party going without a problem. Bands have a lot of moving parts (& people!) but The Uptown Band makes things easy. Thanks for everything Erich and band!
