    Best wedding band ever

    The Uptown Band was amazing to work with from beginning to end. Erich was extremely responsive to any questions and very thorough in preparing for our wedding. The whole band put on an absolutely INCREDIBLE show for our wedding guests. We had a full dance floor for the entire night and so many of our guests came up to us later to tell us how much fun they had. I might be biased, but The Uptown Band was definitely the best band I have ever seen perform at a wedding. They were interactive, high energy, and truly helped us create a night we will never forget!

    Must book!

    AMAZING!!!! My husband and I were on the fence about dj vs band but could not be more thrilled with our decision. Uptown Band was the best! Our wedding was 3 weeks ago and we are still receiving texts on how much fun we had. We had multiple phone calls/emails leading up to the wedding, Erich listened to all of our requests/concerns/etc and followed through. Do not hesitate with booking them :)

    Father of the bride

    Total win! Erich kept everyone engaged and on the dance floor all night, allowed us two special performances, and was extremely flexible. Band is first-rate, without question. Wouldn't have wanted anyone else.

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!
