ABOUT US

Energetic, fun, professional and experienced. UpTones have been working together since 2014 having formed at BIMM (British and Irish Institute of Modern Music). Since then they have gone from strength to strength, having secured weekly and monthly residencies across Bristol, as well as European tours. They have performed at countless weddings, private parties and corporate events for the likes of Rolls Royce, Ibis and Bristol City Football Club, just to name a few.

With a repertoire spanning across the decades, they are sure to prove a hit with all age ranges and will keep guests on the dance floor all night long thanks to their seemingly endless levels of energy.

UpTones normally offer 2 x 60 minute or 3 x 45 minute sets but are flexible and willing to accommodate for your needs. They provide their own PA system and lighting rig along with complementary background party music between each set so you have entertainment covering your whole event.

The band made the night do complete, getting people involved and getting everyone up dancing. There was something for everyone and once I got on the dance floor I did not want to get off! I would highly recommend The Uptones!

What a performance! Every song you played was a cracker. You made our night the most enjoyable wedding we’ve ever been to, and we’re so grateful. We’ve already been asked for your contact details by some of our guests, so hopefully we’ll get to see you again soon. Thanks again, you were superb.

The band were absolutely fantastic. We had guests dancing all night and the band helped create a fantastic atmosphere. There were calls for an Encore at the end and the band obliged with two extra songs which we did not expect but made us feel they were enjoying the party just as much as everyone else. I would definitely recommend this band to friends and family.

We booked The Uptones for our wedding after seeing them play live in Bristol and being blown away by their energy. From booking they were professional and organised, even taking the time to learn extra songs for us on top of their extensive repertoire. The performance was full of fun and each band member is so talented, making for an amazing sound. They made our wedding evening very special and all of our guests commented how good they were! I would happily recommend them to anyone and we hope to see them play again. Thank you for making our night so amazing!
