Incredible Band

They played for our wedding. We couldn't be happier with them. They are all awesome musicians and their set list is gigantic. Everything was super professional. Seth was so helpful to us. Helped plan our day to great detail and made sure everything went down according to plan. What more could you ask for. If you don't book 'em, you're blowin' it!

Absolutely sensational!

The Uptown Groove brought the house down at our 70's disco gala with their infectious energy and incredible musical talent. From their groovy beats to their soulful vocals, they had everyone on their feet and dancing the night away. Their seamless performance truly transported us back to the golden era of disco, and their passion for music was palpable throughout the entire event. A huge thank you to The Uptown Groove for making our gala an unforgettable night filled with joy, laughter, and of course, fantastic music! We will definitely be hiring them again."

Uptown Groove is awesome!!!

Hiring Uptown Groove made our wedding extra special. Not only did they learn the song for our first dance, they also provided beautiful ceremony music, a cocktail hour jazz trio, MC'd the entire event, and had people dancing until the very end, all while sounding incredible. Seth was great to work with during the planning stages and helped iron out all of the details. He even met with us at the venue weeks beforehand to figure out the perfect spot for the band. They were organized and followed through on everything they promised. We've gotten so many rave reviews and had the best time. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to throw a memorable party.
