For the past twenty years, David Gustafson has performed as a pianist, keyboardist, and vocalist in the finest hotels, restaurants, and resorts in Philadelphia, New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, and Atlantic City. Around 2006 he helped create CTO UpTown, a talented yet affordable option to a larger band.
Since then CTO UpTown has entertained at countless weddings, parties, corporate functions, fund-raisers, and society events. They have been privileged to per- form in establishments such as The Ritz-Carlton, The Four Seasons, New York City’s Equitable Tower, The Kimmel Center, The Union League, and The Crystal Tea Room, to name but a few. Additionally, they are known at most of the area’s prominent country clubs and banquet facilities, as well as most of the Atlantic City casinos.
Organizations as diverse as Comcast, Honda, Hyundai, The Academy Ball, The Prince Theatre, The Delco Hospital Memorial Foundation, Manna, and City Year have enjoyed the efforts of the CTO UpTown over the past several years.
Now the CTO UpTown brings its considerable talent and experience to your party. But be prepared -- this is not your average wedding band. The fullness and authenticity of their sound is unmatched. Limitless versatility and personal attention to every detail means that you get exactly what you want without paying for what you don’t need. No one is ever left out as music is chosen from an unparalleled repertoire which translates into a perfect evening of music and dancing for everyone.
Rob and I wanted to send sincere thanks for Dave and CTO Uptown’s performance at our wedding. From the very beginning we felt at ease, and the entire day was executed with professionalism. Even when the junior groomsman and flower girl had other ideas about how they would be announced at the reception, Dave handled everything with ease.
Throughout the day, guests raved about how the renditions of our favorite songs were performed flawlessly. At one point I was sure Sting was performing….
Thanks again for everything—we would recommend Dave and his team for any event—they are true talents and professionals.
