    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.

    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!
