The Uptown Party Down has been gaining fast momentum on the NYC music scene as the next funk party band to emerge in the City. From the Highline Ballroom to the Mercury Lounge, the Party Down has been serving up their signature sound to an ever-growing and loyal fan base.
Their musical abilities aside, the formula for the Uptown Party Down's explosive energy and dance-inducing live shows is the equation of camaraderie. Making original and interesting music between eight people, the key element is fun, and the Party Down has about as much fun as cavemen making fire together.
Their sound could best be described as a bass and synth-driven dancing machine, or as fans have put it: "The Uptown Party Down are funk surgeons...navigating through their music with surgical precision. The musicianship is unparalleled...and only made better by the natural soul and passion that exude out of their horns and drip down their guitar strings like a sweet, soulful I.V. of funk!"
Within months of its inception, the Uptown Party Down has already taken part in sold-out weekends at some of NYC's finest venues as well as having been invited to perform at CMJ 2011...with all the buzz, it's only a matter of time before the UTPD is no longer one of NYC's best kept musical secrets.
"Great Band, Great Vibe, Great Time!!"
