  • Steve and his band were fantastic from start to finish in the planning process. He was kind, professional, responsive, flexible, talented, and most importantly AFFORDABLE! The night of our wedding at the Statler (Terrace Room) they were prompt, they looked great, and Steve was an awesome emcee! And the dance floor was packed all night. If you're on the fence, I say go for it!

  • My husband and I have been listening to Steve and his band play for years, so really it wasn't a conversation when we had to pick out our wedding band. Steve is very responsive, lets you tell him what type of music you want and if you have any special requests. I think we had about 15 special requests, and they played them all!! Even if that meant learning a new song. They even sang our first dance, and I think they did a better job than the original. Our reception was at Shea's on the stage, and I think I got just as many compliments on the band as I did on the venue. Most of my pictures from the night are of everyone dancing, which I love. Steve and his band are very professional as well, not one worry the entire night. I would recommend going to listen to them, in a few different settings so you can really see that they are very versatile, and can mold to any setting. Our wedding was one our friends and family will be talking about for years to come, and I think that Steve and his b... Read more

  • Steve and Uptown Seven added so much fun and flair to our wedding. The combination of live music and the DJ for breaks was the PERFECT balance. Steve also worked with us to MC our entire evening and take care of a lot of our absurd ideas and requests. He played our college football fight songs and put up with our endless requests and input. Our wedding was truly special because of Steve and Uptown Seven. I can't say enough about how fun and accommodating they are. They are a must book!

  • My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend Steve and his band for your wedding or function. He played at our wedding reception and was a pleasure to work with. From our initial inquiry with him regarding his availability through the conclusion of our reception, he was professional and highly responsive, and was willing (and did) learn specific songs to play. Our guests raved about the quality of Steve and his band, and he kept all age groups dancing all night long. Steve and his band are the answer to your WNY band search.

  • I cannot say enough great things about Steve and his band. From the first point of contact, up until after the event, Steve was extremely professional. The night of the event they were prompt, efficient in set-up and truly talented. Since it was a university event, I wasn't sure if guests would dance, but they wasted no time in heading to the dance floor. I will never hire another band or DJ again! Steve and his band are my go to from this point forward.

  • You have an ability that needs to be enjoyed by the masses! We had Steve perform at our ceremony and into the cocktail hour at our wedding. He performed numerous songs but we absolutely LOVED his original "So Much Better", and we were honored to have it as our wedding song and to actually have the person who created it actually sing it was amazing! He also learned a song that we both were hoping to have in the ceremony. Steve you have such an original voice and sound mixed with the creativity and love of music. I truly think in the coming years that you are going to explode on the mainstream music scene! Your voice and sound is nothing like the formula songs that they put together to sell albums in this day and age. Your best days are yet to come!!! If people are thinking of hiring Steve for anything, you will not be disappointed!

  • We had Steve perform at our wedding during the ceremony and cocktail hour. He is awesome! His performance was great, he was professional and worked with us to accommodate exactly what we envisioned for our special day. We also choose to have him perform his song "So Much Better" during our ceremony and then he surprised us and performed it for our first dance (which we had requested the DJ play, but Steve realized it as he was about to pack up and then started singing it!). It was so special and we love the song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1GanuGucqU. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve. He is extremely talented and it was a pleasure to work with him.

  • I knew that Steve would be the perfect fit for our wedding after only minutes of watching him perform with his charismatic personality and love for music. We hired Steve to sing acoustic during our cocktail hour and boy he was a hit! He knows how to captivate the crowd he is singing to, old or young. He can play just about anything, from old classics, to anything new today! I had compliments coming for weeks after our wedding on how fabulous he was. He is professional, friendly, has great communication and most of all talented! I did not have one complaint in choosing him, the only question is- why haven't you booked him yet?!

  • We absolutely recommend Steve and his band for your event/wedding! He was easy to work with, responded quickly, and had a great list of songs to choose from! We first had him preform at my work holiday party and we knew we wanted them for our wedding immediately. Steve came to our wedding venue to make sure the set up would be right months prior. I even had a surprise up my sleeve for my husband that he immediately said of course to! My future sister-n-law sang with Steve and the band for our first dance. They practiced prior and it was the PERFECT surprise for my hubbie and our guests! We had a great night of tunes and dancing! Steve Balesteri Music is great to work with and our guests loved our reception at the Burchfield Penny because of the art and tunes!

  • Steve Balesteri was great. He was very prompt and professional. Everything we asked for, he accommodated. He provided the music for our ceremony, including the instrumental for a song our Maid of Honor sang. He also performed during cocktail hour and along with his band, he performed during the reception. He has a great voice. Do not hesitate to book.

  • Steve was very professional and prompt in getting back to me throughout the planning process. I knew from our very first conversation that I could count on him to get the crowd going! His music is both classic and current and I appreciated his willingness to learn new songs and ask for our input before the big day. Our guests had an absolute blast and thought the Band was amazing! I'm still getting compliments! Absolutely no regrets on choosing a band for our wedding, and working with Steve was probably one of the most seemless parts of the planning process.
