  • My wife and I cannot say enough good things about Erich Cawalla and the rest of the Uptown Band. As we continued to try and schedule and reschedule our wedding during this pandemic, Erich was there every step of the way with us. We spent hours on the phone talking out different scenarios and situations to where we could make our BIG day happen, and he would time after time explain, "Vince, I'll play anytime, anywhere. We're going to make this happen!". This is a true testament to the type of people Erich and the rest of the Uptown Band are. Aside from being incredible to work with, their body of work speaks for itself!!! Erich is an incredible performer and musician, and the rest of the band is just as talented. They don't only just play great music, but they all know how to perform. Their ability to get a party started, keep it going, and leave the entire crowd wanting more is exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We could not have chosen a better group to help us celebrate than... Read more

  • Wow! What can we say that has not already been said?! Uptown Band MADE our reception a hit! The musicians and vocalists are fantastic, fun, upbeat, and professional. We hired the Uptown Band to perform at our wedding reception at Brick Gables in May 2019. From the first email to Erich Cawalla, the band’s lead male vocalist and coordinator, we knew that it would be smooth sailing from there. He responded quickly and each request and detail was followed to a tee. Erich listened to our ideas and offered advice when we needed it! He even went as far as “re-doing” our vows for us in front of family and friends since we had a destination wedding the month before. First time for everything, right Erich!? The day of-Uptown Band arrived promptly, organized, and most importantly genuinely EXCITED to be there and perform for our special party! It was everything we could have wished for. We are still getting compliments from friends and family. Uptown Band is worth every penny! Many t... Read more

  • Uptown Band straight up ROCKED our wedding. We told them we wanted a party atmosphere and they more than delivered. When we went back and looked at our pictures, there were less than 10 people not on the dance floor; we had 150 people at our wedding. If you want an outstanding, professional, fun, friendly, wedding band, book Uptown Band. They are way under priced for the amount of entertainment they deliver.

  • We had been to events where the Uptown Band played prior to booking them for our wedding. They were great to work with and played all the songs we requested. They did a fabulous job with our song and we couldn't be more pleased with them. Everyone loved them and even though we didn't have a huge wedding in terms of number of guests everyone had a great time. So thankful we booked them!!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH LAURIE! It was a great pleasure performing for both of you!!!

  • Where do I begin?! We had seen Uptown perform before and were amazed by their ability to engage everyone in the crowd no matter what age and instantly knew we wanted them at our wedding. Erich and the band were incredibly kind, easy to work with and accommodating to our requests, including my request to sing to my husband. We lost all power during the last 30 minutes of our reception but the band didn't skip a beat! They kept the party going by dancing, playing saxophone, drums and anything else that didn't require an electrical hookup. Because of the band's willingness to keep going and positivity, the crowd kept going too! We danced and sang the night away! Thank you Uptown!! We seriously can't thank you enough for making our wedding dreams come true. It was a night we and our family and friends, will remember forever! Now, time to look for an excuse to book you guys again! ;) Kaelea and Chris 5.26.18

  • Words cannot describe the phenomenal entertainment that was provided by Erich Cawalla and his Uptown Band for our family and friends. We wanted this to be a special occasion and Erich helped us surpass our dreams. We received countless compliments in our choice of band. We were very touched with the way that Erich and other members of the band interacted with everyone on the dance floor, especially with Donna's nephew Ben who has Down Syndrome. You gave him an experience to remember for the rest of his life. We are grateful for the outstanding show that Erich and his Uptown Band provided to help us celebrate our wedding day.

  • I cannot say enough great things about The Uptown Band! They played at our reception in November 2017, and they were AWESOME! VERY talented musicians and vocalists who kept the party moving the entire reception! We received so many compliments from our guests, and even had a few guests who have gone to other performances by the band since our wedding! Erich, the band leader, was also an EXCELLENT emcee and kept the flow of the reception moving smoothly. In addition, my husband and I had total flexibility in the set list, picking from The Uptown Band's extensive repertoire. We also used a sub-set of The Uptown Band musicians to provide music for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Absolutely beautiful! All in all, I would highly recommend The Uptown Band! The talent of these musicians in Central PA is unmatched....and they were GREAT to work with!

  • The Uptown Band is absolutely amazing!! My husband and I had The Uptown Band play at our wedding in August and had a duo for our cocktail hour. Erich is incredibly easy to work with, accommodating, and professional. Our biggest challenge was trying to narrow down their incredible playlist (so many great choices)! They are able to perform a variety of songs which allowed all of our guests to enjoy the band. They even performed all of the songs for our special dances. Everyone was on the dance floor having a great time at our wedding. Everybody at the wedding had amazing things to say about The Uptown Band and could not get over how great they were. The Uptown Band made our wedding such an enjoyable and memorable experience! We highly recommend The Uptown Band!! Thank you for helping to make our wedding incredible.

  • Fantastic band for our wedding reception! We had been familiar with the band from some of their other non-wedding performances, and it was no-brainer to book them for our wedding. We knew we wanted a band from the beginning, and we were totally pleased with the Uptown Band's performance, as were our guests! They are popular and book months in advance, so be prepared if you are checking them out. We booked in Feb 2015 for a wedding June 2016. Fabulous time! Hire them!
