The guys from Urban Intro played my 50th birthday . In short – they were fantastic and got almost all, even the most inadequate dancers, on the floor for over 90 minutes. They started with some pop before moving seamlessly into soul and funk classics with virtuoso performances on the lead guitar . They are a tight, sharp unit with the right balance to the sound that filled but didn’t drown the room with sound. They also know how to play an audience and were engaged with the guests, encouraging requests from the floor and even the occasional vocal accompaniment. All my guests said they were outstanding. I defy anyone to find a better party band!

Bistro L!VE – Live Music RestaurantsI have been booking Urban Intro for nearly 10 years now and they continue to prove a great quality and reliable band to work with. Each time the band performs at one of our 300 capacity venues, they never fail to fill the dance floor (and keep them there!). A thoroughly nice set of people to work with and I would certainly recommend them to any venue looking for a great party band.

The band is very much at home in each setting due to the variety of material they offer and the quality at which they deliver it. Any event or entertainment bookers should look this band up when needing a reliable, professional outfit.
