The Best Wedding Band!
When we started looking for a wedding band of our wedding in Tahoe everyone we talked to at our venue kept saying Hip Service was the best they knew of. Well not only were they right, they were the best band we’ve ever seen at any wedding! Many of our guests commented that the band totally made the evening. One of our guests, who was planning a wedding themselves, liked the band so much they asked us if we thought they would travel to Austin for a wedding! People thought we spent 3x what we did on the band so I’d consider them a great value. Steve was a pleasure to deal with and super accommodating. They were one of the easiest vendors we dealt with. Highly highly recommend.Sent on 09/26/2020
Hip Service's reply:Thank you so much Matt! The band had a great time as well. Yours was actually our last wedding before the lockdown, and we sure are looking forward to celebrating again with our wedding couples!

Best Wedding Band Ever
Hip Service just played our wedding in Northern California and it was incredible! During the lead up to our wedding all of our vendors were saying how amazing Hip Service was and they were so excited to see them again. The hype seemed almost insurmountable but when they were on stage that absolutely blew everyone away. We had many comments that evening and the next day as well as texts from guest saying "Best Wedding Band Ever!!". The MC did a great job guiding the evening along and then seamlessly took over the roll of bonafide rockstar on stage. All the back up singers were amazing with their choreographed moves and the musicians were on point. The dance floor was crowded and bustling from start to finish. Leading up to the wedding everyone we dealt with logistically from Hip Service was friendly and courteous even though we weren't always the most responsive. They stayed on top of everything and got us to the finish line. I cannot recommend Hip Service enough...5 star everything!Sent on 07/23/2021

Best band out there!
Our experience with Hip Service was the absolute best. From filling out their extensive questionnaire to the actual performance, they were amazing. Everyone who attended our wedding has asked us who our band was - everyone had the best time!Sent on 07/21/2021
Hip Service's reply:Thank you Rachel! What an amazing evening...It was truly our pleasure to be a part of your celebration.
If I could give them 10 stars I would! I am a wedding planner in the Seattle area and was looking for the perfect high energy dance band for my client's destination wedding in Sonoma. My clients were very picky in what they wanted so I was so thankful when I researched Hip Service and it sounded like they were everything we were looking for. Nothing cheesy, just classy, extremely talented and fun. We hired them for ceremony piano, PA system and guitarist for the cocktail hour, their jazz band for dinner and the 11 piece Hip Service experience for the rest of the event. Steve was so easy to work with, easy going with our questions and changes leading up to the wedding. As a planner, it made my job so much easier. I must say that even with all of my high expectations and excitement for this band going into it, on the wedding day, they absolutely blew me away and I've been working with event bands for over a decade. They nailed it perfectly on each and every portion of the event. Hip Service is SIMPLY THE BEST I have ever seen. Northern California, you are lucky to have them! Hire them and see for yourself!
I love Hip Service! Wonderful music, wonderful, friendly, band members. Working with them throughout an event is smooth and fun. When you need to make adjustments they are happy to accommodate and helpful as well. If you are considering a band for your event then by all means book Hip Service! I hear lots of bands and don't often make recommendations for all of them...this one is the ONE! Thank You all for being so wonderful all around!
Awesome band- high energy, great performers, and they get everyone dancing!
