Client reviews.. 

"Adrian and the Upscale staff did a great job and made our ceremony and reception very special. The singing was excellent (Angel has a cheerful, pleasant voice) and the dance floor was jammed with guests having a good time. Adrian was very responsive, incorporating just the right timing for various couples dances. The photos on the big screen added a nice touch also. Thanks, Adrian!" - David G.

"Our Wedding was two cultures coming together to celebrate. Both my husband and I wanted our music from our home countries played through the night. Our DJ played all the music we wanted and more keeping our guests on the floor all night. I highly recommend using them for an amazing time." - Aisling G.
