You'll love our diverse song catalog which is well suited to serve as the soundtrack to your wedding reception or to be featured at your corporate event.

We love to highlight our musicianship while playing your dance favorites from the Motown / Soul eras all the way through the hits of the 80s, 90s, 2000s and today’s top 40. Without doubt you'll enjoy working with Uptown Drive's management team to cater the band's look, feel and song selection to your event.

Services Offered

Before the day itself, the musicians of Uptown Drive will work closely with you to get to know your wedding vision. You'll be able to work through the day's timeline and MC's script to ensure it all flows smoothly. As part of their wedding package, the band can provide sound and lighting equipment, as well as lapel mics for the ceremony. You also have the choice of a DJ for your cocktail hour, rather than a live band. The band is happy to learn new songs, in case there's a certain song that holds a special place in your relationship.

Best party band I've ever seen

Just book Uptown Drive for your wedding or event - trust us! My spouse and I had incredibly high expectations for our wedding band and Uptown Drive not only met those expectations, but shattered them in every way possible. From the moment the band started playing, our guests were completely hooked and never left the dancefloor.

The band members are truly top-tier musicians and their talent was evident from the very first song. They played a fantastic mix of songs that had everyone up and dancing all night long. Even better, they were able to read the crowd and play the perfect songs to keep the energy going throughout the entire reception.

Working with Greg (their band leader) was awesome. He was incredibly professional and responsive, making the planning process stress-free and enjoyable. On the night of the wedding, the band was punctual, well-prepared, and truly went above and beyond to ensure that everything went smoothly.

All in all, Uptown Drive was an amazing investment and one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. It’s the best party band I’ve ever seen.

WOW, amazing band!

Uptown Drive was recommended by our event planners, and we were absolutely blown away by their performance! Our team did most of the interfacing with the band, but Greg was incredibly responsive on the few occasions we did reach out directly. Pretty much everyone who attended our party commented on the band being the best they've ever experienced. They selected great music based on our feedback, they deftly guided the flow throughout the night, and they kicked it up a notched and really got the party going after dinner. We planned to lean on a live band to be our primary entertainment, and they exceeded our expectations! We will be forever grateful to Uptown Drive for being a big part of what made our party so memorable for us and our guests.

Uptown Drive is AMAZING! They have a great mix of music, a very talented group and are extremely entertaining. They even included a performance to a Michael Jackson song with wardrobe change. They were also professional, on time and easy to communicate with.
