Our versatile five piece group, the UPBEAT BAND, is one of Chicago's most exciting and creative party bands, offering a high energy live performance with variety to ensure that once the party begins, it never stops. Our well balanced song medleys seamlessly segue from one song to another, and are designed to pack your dance floor with dramatic momentum – we call it dance party by design.

We musically connect with our audience. With our commitment to customized event planning, we put great care in organizing tasteful music selections, specialized arrangements, and dance party concepts that really bring your event to life.
