"The Upshots delivered an amazing performance to round off our charity event! High energy, amazing outfits and cracking song choices got our guests dancing all night long! On the day the band were so slick with their set up and sound check and in the months of planning, the FTM team was great to work with. Thanks so much for helping make our event such a success!!"

"We cannot even begin to describe how unbelievably talented The Upshots are! From the moment we saw them on Instagram, we knew we had to have them play at our wedding. They are even better in real life and the incredible atmosphere they are able to create for you and your guests is completely priceless! Their infectious energy is unmatched and all of our guests said that they were the best band they had ever seen at a wedding - we completely agree! They listened to all of our musical preferences and perfectly incorporated them throughout the day. Everyone was dancing all day and night, and we will never forget the vibe they were able to create for us. Thank you so much to The Upshots and the amazing team, you absolutely made our wedding day!

We knew it would be a party but Jesus we couldn't have planned what we got 😅 So grateful for them giving our guests the best time ever, they all said they had never been at a wedding like it! I just can't get over the professionalism and attention to detail! Such a sound bunch as well, felt like they were friends!! Just absolutely unbelievable!"

"Cannot recommend these guys enough. One of the most energetic and talented bands I've had the pleasure of seeing live. They brought loads of energy, great song choices (both that they played and during the DJ session between sets) and also performed a beautiful rendition of our first dance song, which was extremely special. Communication up to the wedding day was excellent, they also liaised directly with our venue for the finer points of detail to save us being the middle man! On the day, they turned up on time, set up without fuss (included a bonus song for sound check which got everyone excited). Crowd interaction during their set was excellent. All in all, these guys are great. You should hire them for your event. We are contemplating getting married again just so we can have another party with them!"

"The Upshots' reputation proceeds them, but we weren’t quite prepared for the intensity and energy that they brought to our wedding. From the first contact through to the set list discussions and the night itself, they went above and beyond. Matt in particular listened to us, was available 24/7, and became a mate as much as anything. There are bands who will just go through the motions and offer you the set list of your choice with good singers and great musicians. But The Upshots know that people make a party, and they get the people going. From the second the doors opened to the last song of the evening, the band were relentless and the dance floor was rammed - so much so, that people literally missed their main courses because they refused to sit down.
This band are a cut above anything else on offer. The effort they put into our wedding and their delivery on the night will stay with us forever. Even from the first reveal of the room we did just the two of us, the musicians and singers were exceptional. Our guests will not stop raving about them - everyone left blown away by their performance."

"We are a couple from London and decided we wanted a dream destination wedding in the South of France. Music was always going to play a huge part and after discounting the local bands, we hired The Upshots. They provided music at the ceremony, cocktail reception, dinner, dancing and afterparty with DJ. The 9-piece band was amazing - perfect selection of songs from soul, Motown, pop, rock, classics and many current songs which was amazing. Would always recommend them and loved having them with us on our special day!"

Everyone said how much they enjoyed the band’s sets and the DJ kept guests thoroughly entertained right until the end. Communication before the day was great and they were flexible in working to our plan for the day and always available to answer any questions we had. Overall a great choice of band that we would recommend!"

"The Upshotss gave an amazing performance at my birthday party on Saturday. Their playlist got everyone on their feet and the lead singers were interacting with the dancers and everyone commented on how great they were! The arrangements were straightforward, timings agreed that worked with buffet etc. Band set up, then cleared up without any fuss or bother. It wasn’t the exact line up I had seen before but the performance was outstanding. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these talented musicians."

We had so many of our guests asking for their details the next day, we have barely any photos as people were enjoying themselves so much no one had their phone out, the sign of a great night! I also just wanted to say a special thank you for the way they treated our daughter, they completely got her involved and made her feel like a star, it’s a memory we will treasure forever. We hope the rest of their wedding and events season is as good a success as ours. Wishing you and all the band well. Thanks, Claire & Ryan."

They had everyone up and dancing all night (which was not easy as it was rather hot!) and all our guests were so impressed by their choice of songs and how brilliant both singers were. They also adapted well to some rain outside at our cocktail hour and were super professional. The whole process to book them was smooth and easy and we couldn’t recommend you or The Upshots more!

"Hi Matt, I just wanted to say how fantastic The Upshots were on Saturday night for Louise and Ben’s wedding. It was such a great performance by the band and the dance floor was packed, which says it all. The DJ was brilliant and Katie and her colleague so professional with the sound set up and tech. They had all arrived having had challenging journeys to get to Dorney with endless delays, but everyone was so polite and good humoured. Adam was most efficient and helpful as band leader. Please pass on my thanks and I had a quick chat with Louise (when she wasn’t on the dance floor) and she was equally delighted. I wouldn’t hesitate to book The Upshots again. With kind regards, Joanna."
