Editor's Pick and Top Concert of the Weekend - Seattle Met Magazine. "Next month, Hamilton descends upon Seattle. So expect 2018 to kick things off with a host of peripheral events celebrating the landmark Broadway show. Practice singing along to “The Room Where It Happens” and “The Schuyler Sisters” with Rise Up, a Hamilton tribute band playing all the hits alongside singer-songwriter Hilary Scott." - Seattle Met, January 2018 (link, link)
“Rise Up’s Moving Call To Action.” - Oly Arts (Olympia), April 2019 (link)
"Not to be confused with actual theater, performers within this production of Rise Up take favored individual songs from Hamilton and put their own spin on them for an audience of equally obsessed Hamilton lovers." - The Stranger, August 2017 (link)
"Working with Rise Up was a pleasure. Talented musicians playing to a packed house of thrilled attendees. An excellent night all around."

"Rise Up is a fantastic group of artists as well as top-notch professionals who exemplify showmanship and positivity to their live set. Their unique take on Broadway performance and integrating it into a live music setup is not only ingenious but massively successful, as they are able to get a crowd moving and engaging with their set. Would highly recommend this group!"

"This group of musicians and vocalists is top notch, and the performance of music from Hamilton is not to be missed! There are not enough superlatives to describe them - you need to experience them for yourselves."

“The Rise Up team was a pleasure to work with, from start to finish, from contracting to stage everything was smooth and efficient. Our patrons, staff, and volunteers loved supporting this show!”
-Chad Carpenter, Events & Operations Director, Washington Center for the Performing Arts, Olympia WA
"Not only did the folks involved in Rise Up put on a great performance that filled the room on a Sunday evening, but they were also very easy to work with, were more than on top of promotion, and flexible despite a couple unforeseen circumstances on the venue's part. I'd definitely work with them again."
- Wes Gonzalez, Talent Buyer, The Royal Room, Seattle WA
”Rise Up is a potent ensemble of musicians and vocalists whose talent was immediately impressive and delightfully impactful to our audience, which spanned every imaginable age, ethnicity and wallet size. Gratefully – unlike the theatrical production – it’s affordable to both presenters and patrons, and that accessibility is one more reason why PAC’s and audiences will wise up, and go to Rise Up In the future! Congratulations on conceiving and executing last night’s show so well.”
- Serni Solidarios, Talent Buyer, University of Puget Sound, Tacoma WA
