Biography: Uptown Entertainment Band
Approximately four years ago a group of talented musicians came together to form what is now widely known as the UPTOWN ENTERTAINMENT BAND. The UPTOWN ENTERTAINMENT BAND’s smooth melodic and jazzy sounds originate from the magnificent urban setting of the capital of the South – Atlanta. It was in this 1996 Olympic World City that these musicians/singers came together to create powerful and indelible impressions through their music.
