Uptown Beggars—everything you need—live music, MC, and DJ service—all in one! The Uptown Beggars Band is an energetic, Dallas-based variety cover band. Classic rock is their main genre with an emphasis on Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, The Beatles, & Rolling Stones. As their music “takes you back” they also sprinkle in favorites from other genres: country, Motown, blues, & pop from the 60’s 70’s, 80’s & 90’s! They’ve also created custom medleys of the hottest dance tunes to keep everyone on the dance floor! and often add songs to an existing medley right on the spot, keeping audiences excited and curious and ensuring your guests never experience a “dead air” or an awkward moment.
Upon booking Uptown Beggars, a band member or band representative personally meets with every client to plan and customize each event. Set lists and schedules are always catered to specific venues and celebrations, keeping everyone engaged and crowds consistently gathered at fairs, festivals, family functions, corporate parties, clubs and weddings. Performances are always family friendly and appropriate for all ages with special surprises for those with kiddos.
All Uptown Beggars band members are experienced, professional musicians who play live—without the assistance of recorded tracks. They have shared the stage with many legendary artists, including but not limited to: Michael Bolton, Fats Domino, Huey Lewis, Natalie Cole, The Four Tops, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Pat Minter, Point Blank, Debbie Gibson, Sparky Matejka, The Oak Ridge Boys, Andy Timmons, Lindy Wilson, Restless Heart, and Toby Keith.
Uptown Beggars can be scaled up or down to match every client’s individual need. Vocalists, keyboardists, and horn sections can be added (see special pricing); the band can also be scaled back to the Uptown Trio or Uptown Duo for a more personal, acoustic experience.
