The Perfect Band - go see them live!!
The Uptown Groove was everything we were looking for and more in a band for our wedding reception. Their set list is very comprehensive; we covered genera from light jazz during dinner and drinks, to high energy reception favorites, to even some traditional ballroom, Latin and Swing music (at our request). The caliber of the musicians and vocalists in this group is incredible. If you can, go see them live. While they do have videos on their website, seeing them live is completely different. The Uptown Groove isn't just great music. Their stage presence, their vibe, and their sound is really something else that needs to be experienced in person. We will definitely be keeping an eye out for any of their public gigs in our area!Sent on 01/10/2020
Another area where this group shines is with its pre-planning. The logistics and planning for the music went through Seth who was an absolute pleasure to work with. His communication throughout the process was always prompt and courteous. His attention to detail is incredible and his integration with our venue and other vendors was seamless. If I had any suggestions for couples looking to book this group, it would be this: let them work their magic. You won't be disappointed.
The Uptown Groove's reply:Thanks so much for this awesome review, guys! You and Erin are such a fabulous couple and we really enjoyed being a part of your big day! Best of Luck and we hope we see you out at a public show soon:)

Glad we didn't hire a DJ!
I was in charge of hiring entertainment for our corporate holiday party. We had hired DJ's in the past and people left right after dinner and didn't dance. This year, we spent the extra money and the live music made the event amazing. People danced and guests stuck around till the end! Very much worth the investment. We researched several bands and the Uptown Groove was the first to reply and continued to be incredibly responsive and professional throughout the booking process. They were not the least expensive, but they were by far an incredible value compared to other bands in their price range. This band is killer. Super tight, tons of fun to watch. Also, really nice people, especially their singers! They get how to pack a dance floor and keep it packed. Not all bands know how to do this. And holiday parties are tricky like that. Uptown Groove got it done! We already booked them for next year.Sent on 12/30/2019
The Uptown Groove's reply:We love the subject of your review. And yes, we are glad as well that your budget afforded you the ability to hire us. Your group was tons of fun and we fed off the energy they created on the hoppin dance floor!

Fantastic band, highly professional
The Uptown Groove played our company's holiday party and they were perhaps the best band I have ever seen/heard. Tons of energy, diverse song selections, long sets, short breaks, fun light show. We will definitely hire them next year!Sent on 12/30/2019
