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 Dance Party Wedding Ever!
All I asked for was a band and Hip Service delivered! Everyone at the wedding was talking about the band the next day and even 6 months after! We couldn't have asked for a more fun evening with family and friends. Hip Service kept the party going throughout the night and had everyone from the kids to grandma on their feet!Sent on 01/30/2020

One of the BEST decisions we made for our wedding
The band was INCREDIBLE. The second they started performing, everyone was on the dance floor, and no one sat down the rest of the night. I think out of all of the decisions we made for the wedding, this was one of the best. I’ll never forget when the song Dancing Queen came one (my favorite), they prefaced it by saying it was a special request from a special person, and then they let me get on stage with them – it was one of the highlights of the entire wedding and made me SO happy!Sent on 07/14/2020
Hip Service's reply:Thank you Jaclyn. It was our greatest pleasure to help you celebrate your special day. You were truly a dancing queen!
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!
