UpTones - Function / Party Band - Bristol , South West Event Location: London 31st October 2015
'As soon as I saw the promo vid for UpTones I knew I had to have them play at my 30th birthday party! It was gonna be a joint party and luckily my cousin also turning 30 loved the sound of the band and agreed and I was made up! The band were so professional and I knew from the first 5 seconds of the soundcheck that we were in for a great set! And they were AWESOME! Everyone all ages and musical taste were on the dance floor throughout the whole 2 x 45 min sets! They were just incredible and so so talented and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the band! They made the party and I cannot thank them enough! Great mix of music and were happy to take requests a few weeks before and did a fab job with them! Defo ones to watch!'

UpTones - Function / Party Band - Bristol , South West Event Location: Bristol 13th June 2015
Once a month crowds pack into a cosy, busy bar in the centre of Bristol’s trendy Stokes Croft to see The Uptones, a new 6 piece cover band, perform a wide variety of charged, upbeat songs to kick off their Saturday night. Having earned their resident slot at the Snug Bar, The Uptones (their line-up consisting exclusively of students of Bristol’s BIMM Institute) demonstrate a hunger for success evident in the energy put into their performance. The stage, lit by gold fairy lights, set the scene for the vibrations about to hit the crowd. The Uptones knew their target audience well, their repertoire covering all the feel-good tracks you can think of, and a little more. The crowd, not yet loosened up by their pint glasses and not quite fitting into their dancing shoes, welcomed The Uptones to the stage with a modest recognition. Yet the humble beginning was perfect for what The Uptones were about to achieve, a simultaneous coming up of the crowd. The Uptones began strong, launching into classic singalongs such as Stevie Wonder’s Superstition and Aretha Franklin’s Respect. Chants of “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” soon rang out from the audience, encouraged by the smiles and jigs of the band and its two vocalists (Sophie Griffin and Charlie Smith). The onstage chemistry of vocalists was obvious; they whirled and twirled around each other exchanging joyful looks before directing these at the crowd. The synergy created between band and audience became a welcome occurrence; the crowd got itchy feet, filling the dance floor, drawing energy from the band which the crowd then fed on. The Uptones made use of their stage time well with little inter-song crowd interaction. Although often an important aspect of any show – especially for bigger artists who often need this interaction for instrumental changes or who are expected to interact with fans – this allowed The Uptones to seamlessly blend tracks into one another. The crowd weren’t allowed time to question why they were enjoying themselves but forced to give in to the euphoric waves the communal dancing created. The onstage presence of The Uptones, complimented by small stage, was refreshing. Their repertoire had a wide scope; playing the recently-released (at the time of the gig) chart favourite Uptown Funk, hip-hop duet Crazy in Love before finishing with Chaka Kahn’s Ain’t No Body. Even though the band is in its early stages they knew exactly what they were doing, setting the crowd up for their Saturday nights. Why pre-drink at home with an iPod when there are bands like The Uptones around to bless you with the experience live?
