    Incredible wedding band!!

    We absolutely loved having Hip Service play at our wedding this spring, and we have only great things to say about the experience!! The band itself was amazing - great range of songs and styles, with something for everyone, and we were incredibly appreciative of their flexibility as our timing was adjusted day-of due to some unforeseen delays. It was also really great working with the band manager, Steve - we worked closely together to co-create the setlist, and while I’m sure that’s not a typical thing it made a difference to me personally. I didn’t leave the dance floor once all night! They also provided the sound system for our ceremony, and a DJ for after the band, and amazing lighting - really was the full package. 10/10 would recommend.

    Great band

    We hired HipService for our wedding in Sonoma and had an absolutely amazing time! My dad and my husband's best man both played with the band, which was so much fun. They brought a ton of energy and everyone was dancing. It was amazing. I highly recommend hiring them!

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!
