“Words truly can’t describe how lucky John and I are that Matthew Friedman and uptown sounds were our wedding band. I keep getting messages that it was the best band on the planet and they made out night UNFORGETTABLE. They are immensely talented and could not be more professional!!!! No one was sitting the entire night we all danced every second of the wedding thanks to them.


Have you ever been to a wedding where at the end of the night everyone was chanting ONE MORE SONG and the band played an epic encore of Rock n’ Roll by Zepplin? Yeah…neither have we, that is until Matt & his band played our wedding!


The band was absolutely fabulous!  All of our guests are still raving about it. I cannot thank you enough for helping me choose the perfect band …”
