UpFront is a versatile musical group and solo performers that specializes in professional, live music and entertainment for any special occasion. Whether your special day brings together family from many age groups or your company wants to impress with top-notch entertainment, UpFront can help to make it an event you'll always remember. Our band brings over 70 years of combined professional performing experience together in a way that adds a touch of class to any event.
UpFront can provide different configurations of musicians--a duo of piano and sax for small events or wedding ceremonies, a jazz trio for company meetings and small weddings or a larger band that can get people out of their chairs during a wedding reception and dancing to swing, latin, R&B and classic rock & roll. Chris Bidleman (piano, keyboards, vocals) and Steve Burpee (saxophones, vocals), the founders of the band, have been playing music together since junior high school and in 2002 formed UpFront. Chris and Steve are joined by Robert Schultz on drums and are often fused together with good friends Ed Couture on bass and Larry Pindar on guitar plus various other musicians (e.g. female singer, trumpet, trombone, etc) as budget allows.
UpFront has been featured on Portland's KINK.FM local music spotlight radio show. While we often focus on jazz, there are no single labels to describe the wide range of musical styles we can perform. We can play oldies, Motown and pop tunes from every decade. We love to play cultural favorites, seasonal standards, and even classical music. Our play list currently has well over 400 songs, but we can play many, many more and we love to take song requests from the audience.
Your satisfaction is our first commitment. We can perform as a solo, duo, trio or larger band to meet your needs and budget? We will travel within the States of Washington and Oregon but are based in the Portland, OR / Vancouver, WA area.
Please enjoy listening to our sample music online at our website, Facebook or Reverbnation. Your satisfaction is our first commitment. UpFront would love to be part of your special event and to personally tailor a performance to your specific needs at reasonable rates. Please feel free to call or email anytime.
