Uptown Rhythm Rocks the House!

The Chilton Medical Center was the reason for this benefit concert. Uptown Rhythm was a major success, the crowd loved them. You can hear the clapping in the background and sometimes people just got up off their seats and started to dance!

Uptown Rhythm is a great choice for concerts and corporate events like this one here. They, also, do private events such as weddings, anniversary parties, birthday parties, etc. Whatever you choose to celebrate, this is one of our most versatile bands. They do today’s top hits to perfection as well as Motown and Rock tunes.

In this video they perform a series of songs that are being played on the air, now.(June 2015)

“Lonely Ol’ Night,” The Idol Kings, Tribute Band, John Cougar Mellencamp & Journey

Live in Parsippany

In the warm summer months, you can find concerts all throughout the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Those of us living in the New York Metropolitan Area need to be outdoors as much as possible during the warm months of June, July and August.  We videotaped this Rock Tribute Band during one such concert.

We were pretty far from the bandstand, yet the sound on our camera still comes through nicely. When you hire this tribute band, they perform two sets per evening.  They are available for concerts, corporate events, holiday parties, weddings.  Their repertoire is extensive, and the musicians are very talented.  Check out the guitar solo towards the end of this song.

The sets are as follows:

The first set of the evening was John Cougar Mellenamp: 

They dress like the band, and sound just like them. You can hear their voices harmonize quite well. The lead singer in this set sounds just like John Cougar Mellencamp!

The second set on this particular evening was devoted to Journey:

For this set, the lead singers switch. Some of the band members will play a different instrument, and they all change their clothing and appearance to look like the rock band, Journey.
