WeddingReviewed on April 9, 2016From Dallas, PA

LOVE The Uptown Band!! Could not be more satisfied with how perfect they made our wedding! Everyone loved them! The whole planning process was handled so smoothly. Any questions we had were answered almost immediately! Erich was very helpful and as a busy bride helped me to remember the moments I wouldn't have thought of on my own! Thank you for helping to make our wedding the best night of our lives!!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 19, 2012From Collingswood, NJ

AMAZING! If you are looking for a great band... not just a run of the mill wedding band, hire Erich Cawalla and the Uptown Band. We heard from a lot of guests both during and after the wedding how amazing they thought the band was. We opted for 2 horns instead of one horn because of the song we chose for our first dance, and wow was it worth it! Honestly, we expected them to be a great band based on all the reviews, and they went above and beyond our expectations, it was the best band we had ever heard at a wedding. The whole experience in working with Erich Cawalla was great, and he was more than accomodating... the uptown band MADE my wedding phenomenal Thanks
