Up The Beat were formed in Hampshire over five years ago and we've remained as the go to band for weddings, functions and corporate events. We combine impeccable musicianship together with a passion for motown, soul and disco music that has helped us to grow an avid fan base.
Our vigorous wedding and private schedule hasn't prevented us from staying 100% true to our home county of Sussex, and you can find us creating havoc in the local watering holes. One of our greatest strengths is our ability to dig into what makes a song a classic and to recreate, not just the sound, but the soul of a ... song and to get everyone else up and dancing.
