The Uptones (originally Uptown Sound) was formed by young professionals in Chicago who wanted to start an adventure in the world of contemporary a cappella. Our members come from many walks of musical life, including musical theatre, choirs, and college a cappella groups. With humble roots in caroling around the city during the 2009 holiday season, the group got its first big break performing at a small cafeť called Lincoln Perk in the summer of 2010 to a capacity crowd. The group continues to host bi-annual concerts and is currently recording their very first album.
Members: Steve Boblak, Ian Mateo, Taryn Pryor, Ethan McMahon, Aaron Taylor Mays, Vi Chaundry, Hannah Kelly, Thor Rudebeck
