FUNDRAISER: The Uptones’ First Album!

As you might know, The Uptones recently announced that we’re recording our very first studio album!  This is something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and we finally have all the resources at our disposal to make this a possibility.  There is just one thing missing… the support of YOU, our dearest fans!  We’ve launched a fundraising campaign to make our dream a reality, and we’re asking for your support to make this happen!
How can you help?  Just go to:
and make a donation!
Based on the level of your contribution, you may even receive an extra perk from the group, ranging from a digital download of the album, all the way up to your very own private performance (in the Chicagoland area)!  While you’re there, you can also check out some of our own favorite pictures and videos from the group’s seven-year history together.
As a group, we get such a rush singing for the awesome fans that come out and support us at each and every show.  Please join us in our quest to share our talents with you in the biggest way possible – through the creation of our very first album!

Walking in an Aca’Wonderland

We’re super excited to be joining with Chicago’s other premier vocal groups for a night of joyous holiday a cappella! One ticket allows you to experience five different a cappella groups:

Each group will be singing a combination of holiday classics and contemporary songs. This is an event you won’t want to miss! Also, all profits from the event will be donated to The Night Ministry, a charity that provides support and services to members of our Chicago community.

The Uptones Go Glamping

That’s right, friends. The Uptones have gone camping together. We actually left our heated, comfortable, functional, lovely homes in Chicago to travel together in the wild. We’re talking straight out of a Bill Bryson novel. Wood fires, no showers, hiking miles for food supplies, fishing, BEARS.

JUST KIDDING. There were no bears. Except for on the occasional garment. Also we might have stayed in a condo. On the beach. Still counts, right?? Just look at that view.


After a great deal of patio-singing (hey, Jim, whatchu doin there?)…

…and ice-cream eating (don’t worry only AFTER the singing)…

..and un-pictured Whitney-belting, Pitch-Perfect-watching, yoga, and horizontal running…

we feel pretty ready for an awesome new season. We might even actually all like each other. Camping (let’s be honest) Glamping success!
