When I was searching for a band to be the backdrop for an epic event, Uptown were my absolute number one choice. They were super professional, down to earth and.. people are STILL talking about the event. 10/10 would hire again (in a heartbeat).”

It was such a great surprise finding someone that you went to school with had started a band, and that they were able to play at our wedding.
Thanks so so much to Ben and the team from Uptown. The whole experience from start to stop was amazing. The music was on point and you weren’t afraid to share the microphone for a little karaoke throughout the night. I wouldn’t hesitate to have you at the next party, which I am sure won’t be far away.
Thanks again for making our wedding day rock.

Ben & the entire uptown team were an absolute dream! We loved having them share in our wedding day, picking the right bangers to play at the right time and also going above and beyond both before the day and after to make us feel loved, supported and held. They had members of our party up before the entrees! They are professional, fun and the perfect vibe for a wedding which wants to go off like nobody’s business. So grateful for you guys, thanks for making our wedding day so incredibly special!

What can we say… these guys were amazing from beginning to end!
Their flexibility, prompt communication and reassurance that despite COVID restrictions we could still have an amazing wedding was very much appreciated. They created a really fun atmosphere for our intimate long lunch wedding and absolutely nailed our first (and only) dance song!
Thank you so much for being such an important part of our special day, you made it!”

Uptown recently played at our wedding and were absolutely amazing! All ofthe tunes were bangers and there wasn’t any “sit down” songs. Literallyevery person had a dance and a few of my friends said they literally didn’tleave the dance floor as soon as they started playing!
We have been to our fair share of weddings where the band weren’t anywherenear as engaging and fun (and talented!) as these guys.
Ben and the team made sure everything ran smoothly, from organising musicwhen our guests first arrived to making sure our first dance and entry wasperfectly timed.
There’s a lot to be said for creating a great atmosphere and Uptowncertainly made that happen.
11 out of 10 from an extremely grateful bride and groom!

Uptown where do I even begin! THANK YOU!!!!! You made our wedding reception the most funky event of the year. We honestly cannot thank you all enough for working your arses off yesterday at our wedding. The process of booking you was incredibly easy and stress free at all times. Contacting you was never an issue and any request we had were met. Our first dance was not a style you would normally do however it was dead set perfect and for that we will be forever greatful . From the absolute bottom of our hearts THANK YOU all so very much.

When planning our wedding we decided the most important thing for us was that there was good music and a killer dance floor.. and Uptown Band delivered exactly this! They are so much fun and so incredibly talented! We had the acoustic duo play during our cocktail hour and they did an amazing job of setting a fun, happy, party vibe. We then had the whole band play for the reception and they were AMAZing, the dance floor was so much fun!! Thankyou so much Uptown Band, from your two newest and biggest fans, Alice and Matt.

Thank you so much!! Everything went so well with the band, they actually went above my expectations and their take on our first dance was just so beautiful! Uptown are amazing! I think the band has good interactions with people! They read the crowd and played songs to suit. We requested a few songs in which they played and I was super happy about. They created a great vibe for the guests and kept people dancing, happy and having fun. Lastly, their interpretation of our first dance gave me goosebumps as it was just perfect! Highly recommend them!

Amazing doesn’t cover it – their attention to detail and helpfulness before the event made the whole process easy. They were friendly, professional and approachable! We had such a fantastic time. Our guests had so much fun – they continue to sing their praises even now! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Uptown to anyone looking for a versatile band – THANKYOU!”

“Uptown the band was an absolute hit at our recent wedding. They were professional and efficient to deal with, often calming down a very stressed bridal couple. They turned up early, and with appropriate attire. Uptown the Band played from 8pm till the wedding finished. They actually had to play a double encore due to popular demand. Every guest we have spoken to have commented on how much fun Uptown the band were. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone that wants a fun and highly professional band to play exactly what the room needs at the time.”
Jarryd & Cara, September 2016
“Uptown were awesome and extremely friendly! They catered for all songs and everyone really enjoyed the music and got up and danced! We even requested songs that they didn’t know off the top of their heads but managed to ace it and made it more special, as it was our 21st and we were not disappointed! We will definitely be using uptown in the future!”

“We hired Uptown to perform at our Annual Awards Dinner held at the Anchorage Port Stephens. From a last minute request from our MC for a particular song at the start of the night, to getting everyone up on the dance floor by the end of the night, they did a great job. The sound was wonderful and the song choice spot on. Would highly recommend them for any corporate event.”
