Uptown Drive

A MODERN VARIETY BAND

We take our audience on a trip through the decades with a show highlighting your favorite dance songs from the Motown and Disco eras moving through the 80s, 90s, 2000s and today’s top 40. Our experience is really showcased through the flow of our sets with a tried and true gameplan to ensure a non-stop dance party from start to finish. Our look, feel and setlist is catered to each performance and we take pride in knowing the differences between a wedding show and a corporate activation. We transition seamlessly between genres and there's never a break in the action with our hit medleys. All of this without using any backing tracks - a 100% live band!
