  • We really loved everything about the performances throughout the whole night. Seth did a great job MC-ing throughout the night, energizing the crowd and the band played a great mix of music. They started the night with an acoustic set during our cocktail hour, played during dinner and then fun dance music until the end of our reception. All the music choices were very appropriate and crowd pleasing. Working with Seth beforehand was very easy and he made us feel much more confident in our choice to have a band, and for it to be Uptown Groove. Overall we were super happy with everything and would definitely recommend them!!

  • I am an event planner/concert promoter in the Rochester, NY area, and have commissioned Uptown Groove for various events. They are well accomplished, very energetic with an entertaining flair as they engage with guests to get the party moving! They are extremely reliable and a great fit for any event, from weddings, corporate parties, large outdoor festivals, casino events to private parties, and more!

  • I wish I could give them 10 stars instead of 5!!! THIS BAND WAS INCREDIBLE!!! We started working with Seth from The Uptown Groove last year when we asked them to play at our wedding and the entire experience from start to finish was amazing. Seth met with us on multiple occasions and helped us nail down every detail of anything sound-related from the ceremony mics and music, through cocktail hour and dinner and on into the reception. Seth went so far above and beyond in so many ways, we could never thank him enough. Seth and his violinist played wonderfully during our ceremony and then transitioned right into cocktail hour where the jazz trio portion of the band played music for our guests. After Seth introduced us and we had our first dance, he switched into DJ mode and played dinner music while everyone ate. The main event started and the band was AMAZING! Each member of the band is so incredibly talented...they will blow you away! They have an extensive list of songs they play th... Read more

  • My words alone will not be able to explain how outstanding The Uptown Groove is. They played at our wedding on September 8th and we are still riding the high from our most perfect day, largely in part to Seth and all of the band! We first went to listen to UG play at a local restaurant. Within hearing the first song we immediately knew that we needed them to play at our wedding. Throughout our year and a half of planning, Seth was ALWAYS available. He was quick to respond and was willing to meet with us as many times as we needed to get everything set for our big day. He was so well organized and had all of the logistics figured out that we would have never thought of ourselves. He's a true professional in all that he does and is so approachable. We used UG for our entire day/ evening: ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Our ceremony was beautiful with the guitar/ violin combo, cocktail hour was upbeat with the jazz trio, and the reception was exactly what we had hoped for. We were ... Read more

  • I cannot say enough good things about The Uptown Groove. I have seen them perform at multiple functions and worked with them on various weddings and events. In my professional opinion as a wedding planner, I'm very impressed with their professionalism, energy, and talented musicians and singers. They are great at performing a variety of sets depending on the occasion (cocktail hour, mellow dinner hour, and super energetic dance party). During the planning phase, Seth Sealfon is very quick to respond to my questions and takes time to prepare and learn the intricacies and nuances of each event. He is also a great emcee and works with me on the run-of-show to ensure that he is prepared and the band can deliver the best performance possible. They are one of my favorite wedding bands and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a lively band their guests will love.

  • Working with Seth and The Uptown Groove from beginning to end was so easy. Seth is super organized- something you don't always find with musicians (sorry!) He asked all the right questions, consulted with us for music selection throughout the process, even went out of this way to recommend we ask certain questions about the venue. The pricing was very reasonable, considering he played for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception. We didn't have to worry about a thing the whole day. He followed our timeline and consulted with us through out the evening to see if they could be doing anything differently. Seth worked with the coordinator on side as well as catering so that timing went off perfectly, guests even commented about how smoothly things ran. Our guests raved about the music for our wedding, it seriously made all the difference. The vocalist is amazing, the saxophone player came into the crowd to show off for us, it was truly an incredible show. They made it a point to l... Read more

  • The uptown groove band just played at our wedding a week ago. They were awesome and all my guests LOVED their energy. We had guests from the ages of 21 to 60+. Great variety of music and smooth transitions. Everyone was on the dance floor until the event ended. Highly recommended!
