The exhilarating musical synergy The Uptown Band has created with audiences in their home region of the Northeast and beyond since 2006 continues to grow. Stirring up an explosive, melodic, and grooving mix of jazz, pop, rock, funk and R&B, the multi-talented Jenifer (lead vocalist) and Erich (band leader, vocalist, saxophonist) and their evolving group of musicians (a 4-piece rhythm section featuring 2 horns) have headlined hundreds of shows and numerous charitable functions. The band's original songs have received airplay on Music Choice National Cable TV and have charted high in USA Today, New Music Weekly, and The Groove Jazz Music Chart. They have been dubbed an "Artist to Watch".
Featured Artists that have appeared on The Uptown Band's recordings include Will Lee (Bassist on The Late Show with David Letterman), Greg Adams (Founding Member of Tower of Power), and Doc Gibbs (Bandleader on The Food Network's Emeril Live).
