11/30/2013 baja & baltimore

It's time for holiday cheer as URB goes bells to the wall for the next two weeks! We are going over the rivers and through the tunnels, spanning the county to spread glad tidings and good music.

Saturday, December 7, we return to the northeast shore and the Baja Bar and Grill at the Fox Chapel Yacht Club. There'll be plenty of afts shaking in the glow of the brightly lit watercraft shining through the Club's windows.

The following week, December 14, it's back to the Baltimore House for fa la las and fishbowls. Both shows start at 9 PM and will feature newly URB-concocted versions of some of your favorite holiday songs.

See you there!

11/1/2013 here come the holidays!

We know, we know...Halloween is barely behind us, and we're already talking about the holiday season. But before you know it, it will be here! In fact, we've already started booking our holiday 'tour' and working up some brand-new holiday music for you!

Details on where we'll be this fall/winter are over on our events page. Check it out!

10/23/2013 HAlloween!

It's the weekend before Halloween, and it's time to party with URB at the Rochester Inn!

This Saturday the 26th, Uptown returns to the Rochester Inn, starting at a fan-friendly 9 PM (we heard you, the Inn heard you, and we're all happy), WAY before the witching hour.

Dressing is optional! (OK, maybe that should've been dressing UP is optional, but we'll leave that to your discretion...). We can tell you, though, that there may be some band members who are tough to recognize.

AND we've added some appropriate songs to the set to stir the cauldron...

Great food, delicious beverages, ghoulishly good music - don't be caught DEAD missing this one.

See you there!
