I am the event coordinator for a large retirement community and I Hired UpFront band for my "Welcome to the Speakeasy" 1920's party. I was originally a bit worried about hiring a band with no singer. It really ended up not being necessary. The music on it's own was perfect. The residents tapped their toes and got up and danced, and told me all night long how much they where enjoying the party and the music. The band showed up on time and ready to play in no time. I will be hiring them again.
