  • The Uptown Groove was everything we were looking for and more in a band for our wedding reception. Their set list is very comprehensive; we covered genera from light jazz during dinner and drinks, to high energy reception favorites, to even some traditional ballroom, Latin and Swing music (at our request). The caliber of the musicians and vocalists in this group is incredible. If you can, go see them live. While they do have videos on their website, seeing them live is completely different. The Uptown Groove isn't just great music. Their stage presence, their vibe, and their sound is really something else that needs to be experienced in person. We will definitely be keeping an eye out for any of their public gigs in our area! Another area where this group shines is with its pre-planning. The logistics and planning for the music went through Seth who was an absolute pleasure to work with. His communication throughout the process was always prompt and courteous. His attention to deta... Read more

  • Uptown Groove was worth every penny! They helped us so much leading up to our big day in organizing the flow of the event. Seth was so fast to respond, and always had the best attitude, even as we were trying to plan this wedding through the uncertainty of Covid. Our guests were blown away by their sound and how much fun the band had playing together. We even have photos of the bartenders dancing the night away. Their setlist is diverse and extensive. Their energy is infectious. Uptown Groove made a lot of fans that night, and we are dying to get out and see them again. Hire this Band!!!!!

  • From the very beginning, Seth was amazing. He provided so much more help than just being our band leader. Any question, concerns or fears I he leading up to the day, I always emailed, texted or called Seth. He actually became more like a friend and personal wedding planner (poor guy lol!!) but he was always more than willing to answer questions, provide insight and was always the first of any of our other vendors to get back to me. When it came closer to our wedding date, COVID hit... naturally I panicked and though everything would be ruined, but yet again, there was Seth being his optimistic self and so encouraging!! He and his band told my husband and I that they absolutely would still want to perform while providing safe distance and appropriate PPE. I almost fainted, I was so happy. Each stressor that followed was harder and harder and one of the biggest things my husband and I struggled with was our food vendor. Seth actually offered to have his wife, Michelle help out with anyth... Read more

  • I was in charge of hiring entertainment for our corporate holiday party. We had hired DJ's in the past and people left right after dinner and didn't dance. This year, we spent the extra money and the live music made the event amazing. People danced and guests stuck around till the end! Very much worth the investment. We researched several bands and the Uptown Groove was the first to reply and continued to be incredibly responsive and professional throughout the booking process. They were not the least expensive, but they were by far an incredible value compared to other bands in their price range. This band is killer. Super tight, tons of fun to watch. Also, really nice people, especially their singers! They get how to pack a dance floor and keep it packed. Not all bands know how to do this. And holiday parties are tricky like that. Uptown Groove got it done! We already booked them for next year.

    We love the subject of your review. And yes, we are glad as well that your budget afforded you the ability to hire us. Your group was tons of fun and we fed off the energy they created on the hoppin dance floor!

  • Wonderful group to work with! Super professional and thoughtful with their sets. We hired them for a Speakeasy Party and they were such a hit! From the costumes to the way they got the crowd dancing, guests loved them. So happy to have found this group and we look forward to bringing them back for other events in the future!

  • The Uptown Groove played our company's holiday party and they were perhaps the best band I have ever seen/heard. Tons of energy, diverse song selections, long sets, short breaks, fun light show. We will definitely hire them next year!

    Thanks Donna! We need to borrow that phrase: "You Can't Not Dance" to their music. Maybe our marketing people can do something with that, LOL!

  • If you’re looking for a band to play at your special event, stop, and book these guys immediately! We knew we wanted a band for our wedding from day one. After doing some research and reading many reviews, we narrowed it down between The Uptown Groove and one other band. After contacting Uptown Groove and connecting with Seth (band member+manager), the decision was made. Seth still encouraged us to come see them live at their next show and told us he would hold our date until then (beyond accommodating!) I already knew this was our wedding band based off of the videos of them on their website and my conversation with Seth, but we agreed and went to see them live. They were fantastic, and we felt even more excited about our decision. Throughout the entire process Seth was an absolute gem to work with. He was prompt, extremely detail-oriented and knowledegable. We would conenct through phone or email on a regular basis just to make sure we were on the same page and staying on top... Read more

  • This band made our night!! EVERYONE raved about them, not just their music but their professionalism, their presence, and the way that Seth kept the entire evening organized and running smoothly. They sounded phenomenal and made it so much fun! Seth was a joy to work with, as we planned out the music along with the timeline for the evening. Always prompt in responding to us. He could be a wedding planner, he knew so much and had great ideas! We would recommend them to anyone!!
