Wow! What a BLAST we had at our outdoor wedding reception on 10.13.2012! Morris was so very accommodating and prompt from the start. We worked together to come up with the perfect songlist! Everyone LOVED the band and we had so many guest dancing all night! We (the bride and a few bridesmaids) were even spotted dancing on stage once or twice. ;-)
I look forward to booking 1st generating in the future! So many of my friends (future brides!) loved the band and I am hoping they will use them as well!
Thanks again, Morris and Band!

"1st Generation Band was the perfect band to play at our wedding. From the start, they were very professional and very quick to answer any questions we had. Mr. Drane was an excellent manager and helped ease the stress that planning a wedding can bring. They were easy to deal with and very accomidating to our requests. At the wedding, they were amazing! Their song choices were exactly what we wanted and we have been receiving comments about how awesome the band was. They will keep everyone dancing and having a great time. I would recommend 1st Generation Band to anyone. They professionalism, exciting atmosphere, and talent are unmatched. Thanks so much!!"

"What a time! Wow. They were eager to please, and easily learned our "special request songs.". The manager, Mr. Drane, stayed in touch with us during the months before the wedding. The band arrived in town well in advance of the wedding. I would recommend these folks any time, anywhere. "

"1st Generation Band played for my wedding in St Simons Island and they were AMAZING. Everyone enjoyed them and I had a few friends ask for their cards to play at future events. I wanted a band that would bring everyone onto the dance floor and 1st Generation made this happen. They are all very talented musicians and performers and they made my wedding even more memorable. Thank you!!!

"1st Generation Band is one of the best bands we have ever hired for a corporate event! They are talented, energetic, fun, interactive, and can get the crowd engaged in the music. They played a variety of music and played all genres very well. Guests kept coming up to us to tell us how fabulous the band is.
They were a pleasure to work with and met our every request. Prior to the event they returned phone calls and e-mails to questions in a timely manner. From my initial inquiree to our firework finale, they were attentive. They certainly deserve the honor of the 2011 Gigmaster Top Performer! Kudos to Morris, Kim, and one of the coolest bands I've worked with! "

"1st Generation Band was perfect. They could not have been nicer in regards to us changing the starting time, which speaks volumes to their professionalism and attitude. They picked great songs to play and made them sound terrific. We are excited to talking with them in the future. "

"The 1st Generation Band was first class their music, their professionalism, and their willingness to make our daughters wedding exceptional. Morris Drane the manager
was one of the nicest gentleman I've ever worked with. His band members were so polite
and respectful, they accommodated our every need and request. They actually learned two new songs and let the bride (my daughter) and my son sing with the band.
The crowd from age 86 to 10 months old loved the energy and mood 1st Generation created. Everyone complimented them throughout the night.
I highly recommend these nice entertainers and now good friends.
You will be very satisfied.

"This was my third event using the 1st Generation Band and each time it seems to get better. For this lavish wedding, they provided a keyboard player and a soloist for the ceremony a jazz trio for cocktail hour and a ten piece band for the reception. 1st Generation Band arrived on time, setup on time and met our every request and kept my guests on the dance floor. The leader of the band couldn’t be any nicer or any more accommodating. He was available for every conference call requested, promptly replied to emails and very knowledgeable and up to date with his music catalog. I can’t recommend this band enough!!!!"

"1st Generation Band did a fantastic job at our wedding reception. Truly, they were one of the most fun and talented groups I've ever seen at a private event! They stayed in touch with me about details from the first time I called to reserve the band. Always checking in, asking for ways they could help or make the night better. I would recommend this group to anyone! All of our guests loved them and stayed until they had to pack up! Wonderful music, and they were great at getting the crowd involved. All members were very professional and talented! I hope to be able to attend another party where they play. Overall, a wonderful band that made our wedding so memorable!"

"At the Blase` Formal Event UEB exceeded my expectation with their diversity of performance with their smooth jazz and popping R&B sounds. I was most impressed with their personal dress appearance and professionalism. Mr. Drane showed personal attention to our guest during their break time. A guest from DC area said the band was awesome. Another from Mathews, NC said I got to have UEB at my next function in 2012. Guests from Mississippi and Alabama said they were simply off the chain. For those of us in Georgia UEB is still on our minds after the March 5,2011 event sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. A. Blase`"

"We were incredibly pleased with Uptown Entertainment Band. They were extremely professional and put on a fantastic show for everyone at our wedding. We could not have picked a more wonderful band to play and we only wish them the very best in the future!"

"there are two vital ingredients to a great party; the music and the booze...our parents supplied the booze, so it was up to ueb to supply music commensurate with our expectations...and did they ever...they brought the house down...everybody, to a man, loved them...we are very fickle with our music and peppered them with special request after special request and they just rocked...the dane floor was jumping all night, which is exactly what we wanted...our only regret is they are based in atlanta and we live in new york...hire this band, you will not be disappointed!"

"My experience with Ueb Band was top notch! Prior to the event Mr. Drane and I spoke a few times to make sure all of my requests were being addressed.
Our guest and the honoree of the party, were extremely pleased and overjoyed with the performance of the ENTIRE band.
Now- several days later, the guests are still talking about the party and the band!
Thanks Uptown Entertainment Band!"

"UEB played for our wedding May 2010. As most ppl may know, a band is a very important piece of the puzzle if your wanting a great reception. UEB did not disappoint. I was very pleased with how well they communicated with us to make sure we had everything that was needed to make the night as special as we wanted it to be. I honestly have no complaints and would recommend them to anyone who is wanted to have a high energy and fun wedding reception."

"We couldn't have been more pleased with the UEB 1st Generation Band. They were highly trained, professional, personable and entertaining musicians. Thank you so much for getting us in touch with them. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again for any function, anytime. The band received many compliments and were an answer to a prayer. Our original, local band had to cancel on us. Thank goodness they did, otherwise I would have never known about the UEB 1st Generation Band! I can't thank Gigmasters enough. "

"UEB was incredible. They were friendly, professional, and reliable. They accommodated my request to start the evening with jazz standards and then to play dance music later in the evening. The performance was outstanding! Great stage presence, awesome sound. Our guests loved them. There was a lot of dancing, even from some guests I wasn't expecting to see on the dance floor! Throughout the evening, people made it a point to tell us what a great band we had hired, and how much they were enjoying the music. My fiance said, "I knew you had hired a great band, but they still managed to exceed my expectations!" I would recommend UEB to anyone!"

"UEB Band 1st Generation was top notch. Morris Drane and all of the members of the band were professional, timely, accommodating and, most importantly superbly entertaining! The Band truly delivered. Our wedding was at the Biltmore Ballrooms and they worked collaboratively with our multiple vendors, coordinator and us. Our guests were in awe of their performance. They continue to ask us "Where did you find that Band?" and tell us how awesome they were. UEB Band 1st Generation, we cannot thank you enough -- you made our wedding/reception wonderful. Best, Carolyne and Todrick "
