The UpBeat Band Performs For Audrey & Joseph at Glenview Country Club!


“Oh What A Night” was the bridal party dance, and indeed it was a wonderful night.  This was our typical non-stop dance party, and we were happy to play a few last minute requests for the bride’s family visiting from out of town.  The UpBeat Band enjoyed learning a few new tunes for this event, especially “Song For You” (Michael Buble), which was their first dance  - very romantic.  Audrey was nice enough to write a review for our Chicago wedding band on The Best Chicago Weddings:

” …Michael really took the time to make our wedding truly special and unique! They had everyone on the dance floor the entire evening. Great variety of music for all guests. I highly recommend The Upbeat Band. It was definitely one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding…”
