Working with Seth and The Uptown Groove from beginning to end was so easy. Seth is super organized- something you don't always find with musicians (sorry!) He asked all the right questions, consulted with us for music selection throughout the process, even went out of this way to recommend we ask certain questions about the venue. The pricing was very reasonable, considering he played for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception. We didn't have to worry about a thing the whole day. He followed our timeline and consulted with us through out the evening to see if they could be doing anything differently. Seth worked with the coordinator on side as well as catering so that timing went off perfectly, guests even commented about how smoothly things ran. Our guests raved about the music for our wedding, it seriously made all the difference. The vocalist is amazing, the saxophone player came into the crowd to show off for us, it was truly an incredible show. They made it a point to learn the song for our first dance and it was so special. There isn't anything I would change when it came to working with Seth, he was very responsible and always willing to go over things in detail. Book them!!

I worked with Jose for 3 years during our time together at Eastman. As an accompanist, his insights into the poetic, dramatic, and musical aspects into any vocal piece presented to him were always incredibly well informed and creative. He often pushed me to push the envelope of complacency and raised my standards for quality musicianship. This desire to push boundaries is echoed in his compositions, which stands as a testimony for his technical and engineering prowess. His earnest, hard working attitude is matched only by his depth of musical expression, intuition, and technique. His range of keyboard styles and technique would always astound me during our time together. Any project, musical or non-musical, that Jose is a part of always thrives. He remains to this day the hardest working high talent musician I have ever known. If you want the highest caliber of music, you need Jose Benjamin Escobar.

Piano Music with Gena

From the minute Gena walked through the door, I knew we were a perfect fit. Her mix of linear and creative approaches to teaching piano has helped me grow as a musician and thinker. She finds ways to make small chat in-between informative instruction which helps the student's mind digest all the new musical material. Gena is a genuine person and knowledgable teacher who I would recommend to anyone :)

Maia and I worked as camp counselors together at "Camp Jam," where kids work on their technical, collaborative, and performance skills in music. Maia was not only adored by her campers for her friendly and approachable personality, but successful gained their trust and respect as a musician, teaching many lessons and giving advice that was noticeably taken by the students. Maia is fantastic to work with!

    Grace was amazing to work with. She was open to playing any song we wanted & learned the song very quickly and played it beautifully on the day of our wedding. She is extremely talented and a rare find for a solo violinist. I would highly recommend hiring her for your event! She is also such a sweet girl to work with.
