  • Having The Uptown Getdowns at my daughter and son-in-law's wedding was the best decision we made. They provided fantastic singing, quality sound, and so much positive energy that everyone had to get up and dance! Excellent from start to finish!

  • Before booking the band, we saw them play at a few bars and other events, and each time they impressed us and played a really great variety of music. Once we booked them for the wedding, Steve and the rest of the band were so great to work with and learned songs for our wedding dances and other songs we requested. We received so many complements from our guests about the band, and they made the wedding go very smoothly and played incredibly well the entire time. We would love to book them in the future for other events, and will recommend them to all our friends getting married in the future!

  • Could not have had a better experience with the Uptown Getdowns! From start to finish, the band was extremely responsive, easy to work with, and did I mention talented?! There was not one single guest at our wedding that was not impressed by how well they sounded and interacted with guests on the dance floor. My wife and I decided to add the optional horn section, which was suggested by Steve the drummer. The decision couldn't have worked out better since the horn section was excellent and added a perfect touch to the already great-sounding band. We could never understand why people opt for a DJ when you can have an 8 piece band play live music for all different eras. After hearing this band once, we will realize that you will never want to have a DJ at your wedding again.

  • From start to finish- the Uptown Getdowns were exceptionally accommodating, professional, talented & personable. Not only did they deliver an incredible performance at our wedding, they worked closely with us the entire process and remained flexible with our decision to post-pone due to Covid. Our guests really enjoyed the variety of music and the contagious energy they brought to the venue. Steve, in particular, really helped keep me calm and relaxed during the planning process! This band is made up of the best of the best, phenomenal musicians with big hearts, full of positive vibes and passion. Thanks for making our wedding day extra special & we look forward to seeing you perform locally.

  • I cannot say enough good things about the Uptown Getdowns! From our first contact, they were professional, responsive, and just genuinely good & fun people. The day of, they were on time and ready to go! They set everything up in a timely manner; instruments, PA system, lighting, EVERYTHING. The music was phenomenal. They played a great mix of 70s/80s/90s/ and today's hits. I come from a family of musicians, and trust me when I say, all the musicians were flawless. They were also very willing to personalize anything and everything for me. I am a huge fan of 90's music and they did a special 90's block towards the end of the night for me! I had so many people during the wedding, ask me "where did you find this band, they are amazing!" If you are considering booking the Uptown Getdowns, DO IT! You will not regret it!!!

  • If you're anything like me, you take forever to make a decision. You read a million reviews, make a ton of phone calls and watch/listen to a bunch of songs or go see whatever band you're looking into. Let me just save you the trouble-book this band. I can't possibly say enough good things about them. Steve was my contact throughout and he could not have been more professional, friendly, and responsive, always answering my many questions and emails and adapting to changes in plans. Their sound is the best part though- we had seen them in a bar and they sounded even better at our wedding. They learned our song weeks before the wedding and it was perfect. They had everyone up and dancing-even my 90-year-old grandma! They are true professionals and it shows-you can tell they've been playing together forever because their sound is absolutely flawless and their harmony is amazing. Not to mention their insane song repertoire! They really made our wedding so special and memorable. Book them... Read more

  • I can’t write enough good things about the Uptown Getdowns. So many of our wedding guests couldn’t stop raving about the music. The band is so talented, engaging, and know exactly what to play to have all guests, young and old, up on the dance floor having a great time. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!

  • Hired the band for our outdoor tented wedding on 8/24. Working with Steve was great; he was extremely flexible, attentive and always available. The band learned the 5 songs we requested and absolutely nailed them. They really made our wedding come to life. The groom and I are still in awe of their performance, as well as, all of our guests. A few people asked us after the wedding for their contact info to hire. Book them!! You will be so happy you did. Thanks Uptown Getdowns for everything! You made our day the best.

  • The Uptown Getdowns were hands down the best vendors we booked for our wedding! We'd seen them live before - both at a bar in Hoboken and at a friend's wedding - so we were confident going in that the quality of their performance would be excellent. But what we didn't anticipate was how incredibly communicative they were leading up to the wedding. Steve went above and beyond to get a sense of me and my husband, our guests, and the vibe we were trying to create. When our wedding day rolled around and it was 105 degrees, they still managed to get everyone on the dance floor. I cannot possibly recommend them enough!!

  • Hands down, the best band around. Not only are they all such great people, but they are such talented musicians! They brought such fun, joy and love to our special day and we were so lucky to have them there with us. Everyone danced all night long and shouted "Encore!" when they were done because no one wanted them to stop playing. Thank you guys for being so awesome and rocking our wedding!

  • The band was absolutely amazing! Throughout the night multiple people from both my and my wife's family came up to us saying they loved the band. They were always responsive in the months leading up to our wedding, and were able to accommodate all of our requests. The ceremony music was just what we had hoped for, and they kept the party going for the entire reception! They also seemed to pick up on what sort of music we liked from our discussions with them and really ran with it. It was a perfect selection and a perfect night! We are definitely recommending them to others.

    Thanks Alex. It was a gorgeous wedding and we were honored to be a part of it. Best of luck to you and Pamela. Hope to see sometime at show!

  • My husband and I wanted a live band but weren’t sure if we could afford it. My husband saw the band perform at a bar and got in touch. The band was super responsive and easy to work with. Their prices were within our budget. If it weren’t for their reasonable prices, we would be unable to have a live band! The Uptown Getdowns did not disappoint! They far surpassed our expectations. They offer an extensive and varied song list. They also offer to learn a variety of songs such as our first dance song and father/daughter dance. Our wedding had a wide variety of people, young and old, outgoing and shy, etc. The band was excellent catering to our varied guests and making sure everyone had fun. They followed any special instructions to a T. We can be awko tacos and they worked with us and made everything super easy and relaxed. They learned an important Irish song, The Parting Glass, for the last song of our reception. I will always remember that moment as one of my favorites ever. Than... Read more

  • My husband and I are SO happy that we discovered this gem of a band to book for our wedding in October 2017. They sounded AWESOME and kept the energy going all night through everything from having horn players engaging throughout the dance floor, adding some funky personality to the songs, emceeing an anniversary song, and inspiring a gigantic conga line. It was SO much fun and all our guests keep raving about it. The band was also great to work with. They learned songs for us (and did it well), locked down all our preferences, got a feel for how our personalities should translate to the entertainment, and they were very professional and on-point with all the set-up & logistics. Even when our reception timeline got messed up during the wedding, they were able to just naturally go with the flow and flexibly adjust on-the-fly to make sure all the important moments and songs were covered. Great people, great music, great decision to hire this band!
