Uptown Tango offers a miniature orchestration of a traditional Tango Orchestra, appropriate in regard to volume, size and cost for venues ranging from parties to restaurants or tango dance milongas. The duo brings classical and jazz mindsets to the performance of classic Argentine Tango. The instrumentation can vary to fit your needs and easily expands to a Trio or Quartet to enable more intricate arrangements. Uptown Tango performs instrumental tango and adds a vocalist on certain occasions. Our high quality and tastefully balanced sound system work with any space.

Like many classical musicians, Evan first experienced tango through performing music of Astor Piazzolla. It was "love at first hearing", and he soon formed a duo with a bassist to perform this repertoire. He began arranging tunes by Carlos Gardel for this group, and the doorway to classic Argentine tango was opened. A few years later, a chance meeting and performance with Seth Sealfon was the birth of Uptown Tango. Evan's main work is conducting orchestras where he can be found on the podium with ensembles around the Northeastern US.



Seth has been playing guitar for over 30 years. He has been a member of various Rock, Jazz and Groove Rock Bands in Rochester over the past 25 years. Although "brought up" on Rock and Roll, Seth enjoys studying/performing Jazz. Jazz influences include Jim Hall, Joe Pass, Ed Bickert, Sonny Rollins, Paul Desmond, Bill Evans, Chet Baker, etc. Seth has played with local acts such as Nik and the Nice Guys, The Sky Coasters, Silver Arrow Band, The Half Ton Horns, Up 2 Somethin' and the Al Chez Brothers of Funk Big Band. Agentine Tango music has become a unique challenge that Seth loves and is constrantly pursuing!
