"The Uptown Groove was everything we were looking for (and more) in a band for our wedding reception. Their set list is very comprehensive...from light jazz during dinner/cocktail, to high-energy danceable reception favorites. Upon request, they also played some traditional Ballroom, Latin and Swing music for our guests.  The dance floor was packed the entire night and guests are still asking us how to put them in touch with Uptown Groove.  The caliber of the musicians and vocalists in this group is incredible. If you are able, go see them live...The Uptown Groove isn't just great music:  their stage presence, their vibe and their sound is really something else and you should experience this first-hand. My wife and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for any of their public dates in our area when we get back from our honeymoon!"

"The Uptown Groove's recent public performance at the Record Archive Lounge was astonishing and uniquely different from their pop/rock/dance shows in the past.  This night brought them back to their funk/soul and Jazz/R&B roots, showcasing moving renditions of Stevie Wonder, Tower of Power, Al Green, Van Morrison, Bill Withers, Gladys Knight, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Chicago, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Prince, Michael Jackson, Franki Valli, and various Motown artists.  The audience enjoyed the concert setting and eclectic song selections throughout the intimate evening.  Our team is excited to promote, endorse, follow and review public events with Uptown Groove in the future."
