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:)

Highlight of our reception!!
Uptown Groove was worth every penny! They helped us so much leading up to our big day in organizing the flow of the event. Seth was so fast to respond, and always had the best attitude, even as we were trying to plan this wedding through the uncertainty of Covid. Our guests were blown away by their sound and how much fun the band had playing together. We even have photos of the bartenders dancing the night away. Their setlist is diverse and extensive. Their energy is infectious. Uptown Groove made a lot of fans that night, and we are dying to get out and see them again. Hire this Band!!!!!Sent on 10/13/2020

Uptown Groove provided an unbelievable performance for our wedding. They were sweet enough to learn a song my dad wrote to perform together as well! They were extremely flexible with any songs we requested- they learned several songs specifically for our wedding! Seth (the main band contact person) provided an immense amount of professionalism given the postponement required by covid 19. He was extremely detailed oriented going over every part of our wedding schedule multiple times prior to the wedding. They weren’t too loud either (as we requested) and even for those not dancing they enjoyed listening to them. We researched bands for months (traveling to multiple groups in person) and are so happy with this decision. We cannot recommend this band highly enough!!!Sent on 06/06/2021
