  • Steve and his crew were the best! So easy to work with and played every song we wanted. Responsive, nice, and really genuine. Also nailed our first dance song, too! Highly recommend!

  • Steve went above and beyond to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. With changing plans due to Covid, he was responsive, flexible, and accommodating. The music for the ceremony and reception was SO beautiful. He has an incredible voice and style. One of the most frequent compliments we received regarding the wedding was how amazing the music was. We are blessed to be having a second wedding celebration next year where we can include more family and friends, and are so excited for Steve and the Uptown Sound to be a part of that event as well!

  • To start, Steve and his band were incredible, they sound great and have such a wide range of songs. Steve’s ability to both sing, play guitar, and MC is unbeatable especially at a price that is affordable! Steve answers promptly and always emails back himself, it’s never someone who has to take the time to ask him questions and takes days to get back. Steve is flexible, understanding, helpful, and always willing to work with you to make your event the best it can be. Everyone who attended our wedding asked about the band and complimented how amazing they were. I don’t plan on ever getting married again but I would have them at another event in a heartbeat and will always recommend!!

  • Steve and his band were absolutely INCREDIBLE! They brought such amazing music, sound, excitement, and positive vibes to our wedding! They "read" the crowd perfectly and played the best collection of songs. Song after song was ideal and kept the party going. We didn't want the night to end! Steve was also such a joy to work with. We cannot thank him enough or think of a better person to work with. Any time we had a question, he answered it quickly and thoroughly, which kept us calm and happy throughout the process. We recommend them wholeheartedly, not just for weddings but also all kinds of corporate events or celebrations.

  • Steve Balesteri and Uptown Sound were absolutely incredible and MADE our wedding night. We had a violinist play during the ceremony, Steve on vocals + a horn for cocktails, and the full 9-piece band for the reception, and received endless compliments all night long! The band was amazing to dance to and Steve was wonderful to work with :) I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a knock-out wedding band that keeps your guests on the dancefloor all night long!

  • We couldnt imagine having anyone other than Steve and The Uptown Sound play at our wedding. Our friends and family love them so much that we've had them play at weddings as well as other events. Steve is so sweet and easy to get along with, he makes at least this one aspect of your wedding plain painless. Everyone at our wedding, from young to old, loved them and were dancing all night.

  • Steve Balesteri Music was hands down the best choice we made for our wedding. Steve was friendly, accessible, responsive, and an overall delight to work with. He played soft, romantic, acoustic versions of our song choices for our ceremony and he and his band rocked all of our favorite songs throughout the night. They even took the time to learn and perform special songs just for us. He performed our special song last for the night and let us dance for a memorable moment to finish off the night. If you’re looking for live music, Steve’s your guy. Plus, his services are incredibly affordable. You can’t go wrong!

  • Steve and the Uptown Sound absolutely made our wedding! He was great to work with, helped us out on customizing our experience with him and took care of things that we didn't care to make decisions on. MC'd the night and the band was amazing! The dance floor was packed the entire night because of them! I would hire him 100 times over again, definitely recommend! Thank you Steve!

  • Steve Balesteri band was amazing. the best way i can describe him. you know when you get that feeling that you know this choice is the one and you can stop band searching the other choices. thats the feeling i had when i was talking with him. he may do 1000 gigs a year, but he made you feel like your wedding was the make or break it point for him. not desperate. but amazing! he made everything simple and he had the entire dance floor going all night long. never once did i have a doubt that he was the right choice. my wife and me are always looking at where we can see play again, so we can continue to show our gratitude and listen to a great band! Thank you again Steve! Kurt and Megan 6/15/19 wedding

He really took the time to get to know me and my husband, our family, our musical taste and even learned a very special song for us! I highly highly recommend him for your event.

  • Steve Balesteri and his band are the perfect choice for your wedding. From the get go, Steve was great to work with. He is an extremely friendly person and was very supportive in helping us craft our vision for the music at our wedding. Many of his band members can play multiple instruments so you have significant flexibility in the music that you would like played. I cannot say enough about how great Steve and his band were for our wedding. He provided a perfect backdrop to our ceremony and cocktail hour, was a great emcee to provide flow to our reception, and was able to get everyone out on the dance floor to enjoy themselves. Steve has a huge song list spanning many genres and even had his band learn a few songs that weren't on his list but were important to us. He provides a great combination of band and DJ that allows for a variety of music to be played. Based on the music we said we liked, Steve was on point with his setlist for the wedding. There were multiple people that... Read more

  • Steve was amazing from day 1 when we contacted him almost a year out from our wedding. We were planning a wedding from out of town and he made time to meet with us around our busy travel schedule when we were in Buffalo. It was so helpful to meet him in person and talk over things. He was so meticulous and thought of everything! We wanted to add another musician to the band sort-of last minute and it was no problem whatsoever! He had a list of songs and was super open to everything we absolutely wanted and did not want to hear played. He even sent us the music mix for bridal party introductions in advance so we could make sure we liked which pieces of the songs he chose! The day of the wedding, when I tell you these people took ONE break the whole night, I am not kidding! They jammed the entire night and the dance floor was FILLED! They read the crowd so well and just played song after song after song. Their mix of new and classic was perfect for our guests of all ages! Could not recom... Read more

  • Steve and the Uptown Sound were a huge hit at our wedding and kept the energy going all night long! Steve could not be more accommodating and worked very hard to ensure all of our requests and specifications were met. He and the band learned a new song for our first dance, customized specific music for the introductions and remained highly interactive with our crowd the entire night. The band was a hit with all ages! In addition to the band, Steve performed a solo acoustic set during our outdoor cocktail hour which set the tone for the entire event. Of all the vendors we dealt with, Steve stood out with regards to his level of professionalism, degree of communication, helpful suggestions and overall degree of service. We can't recommend Steve and The Uptown Sound enough! They are a blast!

  • STEVE AND HIS BAND WERE AMAZING. Steve is naturally one of the nicest guys I have ever met. Him and his band were so easy to work with, and made the music portion of our wedding extremely stress free. As far as their performance, they were a 10/10. Their sound is amazing, and I love how they incorporate today's popular music into their set lists. Our entire wedding crowd danced all night and I loved every second of it. Since the wedding we've gotten countless compliments on Steve and his band and how much fun they made our night. I know it's cliche to say but we can't imagine our special night without Steve and his band! Whatever you do, book them for your event! Thanks Steve! Zach and Alison Bouley
