We had over 1,200 enthusiastic fans and friends in the house rockin’ with us…the first time we have seen one-night numbers like that since January of 2020!!

January 29th – 7:30 PM  

This One Night Only  Fundraising Performance will be held at the Community Arts Center, in Williamsport, PA.

The students of the Uptown Music Collective return to the Community Arts Center for ONE NIGHT ONLY to present Nothin’ But A Good Time: Revenge of the ‘80s Hair Bands on Saturday, January 29th at 7:30 pm. This is the school’s “people’s choice” show, the result of fans casting their votes in the summer of 2021.
All proceeds from this concert will be going to support the school’s scholarship fund as well as its class and workshop initiative which is offered free to all students.

This concert will pay tribute to some of the definitive “hair bands” of the 1980s including Poison, Motley Crue, Van Halen, Guns N Roses, Warrant, Def Leppard, and more brought to life on the CAC stage as only the Collective can!
