About

$4,499 Most Popular Price

Hit Play was formed in 2015 and is based in the greater Boston area of Massachusetts. Comprised of some the area's most accomplished musicians, Hit Play has quickly earned a solid reputation as one of the hottest live wedding and event party bands in New England.

Band leader Ryan McHugh, is the MC, guitarist and one of the lead singers. Ryan is well known in the Boston area for his ability to captivate a crowd by utilizing his 22 years of experience in the live music industry. Drawing on this experience, Hit Play performs in top bar / club venues from Boston to Newport and at top wedding venues all over New England. Lynn, the lead female vocalist is multilingual so in addition to singing all the Top 40 hits she can also sing beautifully in Spanish, Hebrew and French to name a few!! Adding Andy the drummer with his super high vocal range to the mix allows even a small 4 or 5 piece band to sing almost every style and genre imaginable with multipart vocal harmonies as well! The band is well known for their incredibly versatile repertoire - consisting of anything from modern Top 40, 90's throwbacks, Rock, Funk, Soul, R & B, Country, Alternative and Hip-Hop to name a few. Despite the incredibly diverse styles, the songs in the dance set all share one common thread: high energy, tried and true bangers that are gauranteed to keep the dance floor moving.

When you book Hit Play for your wedding you will not only get an incredibly energized performance, but also unparalleled service and communication throughout the entire planning of your event. During the months / weeks leading up to your wedding, Ryan will work with you to choose the perfect song choices for your big day. With around 400 songs to choose from and a state of the art sound system and uplighting, Hit Play will make the night perfect. Unlike some of the typical bands you've probably seen that blow through the same exact setlist every night no matter what the gig is, Ryan will "call audibles" from a variety of musical genres during the night to perfectly fit the crowd and the vibe of your wedding. This allows the night to be a more special and memorable experience that you and your guests will still be talking about months after your wedding! Hit Play promises to be here for you to answer any questions and make your event one that you and your guests will never forget!

    Absolutely amazing!!

    You cannot go wrong booking HitPlay as your wedding band! Ryan, the leader, was extremely responsive and easy to work with. Everyone was so friendly and the band was absolutely amazing. We had everyone on the dance floor and the band was really interactive with our guests too. Seriously, one of the best vendors I worked with out of all of our wedding planning, would book them again a million times over!

    Book this band!

    Hit Play band was THE best choice we made for our wedding. Everyone at the wedding said that it was one of the most fun weddings that they'd ever been to and that the band was one of the best parts. Ryan and the band were really in tune with the crowd, kept the energy levels up, and got even the non-dancers up and on the floor. The highlight was a spontaneous little pop-punk set they did towards the end of the night. They also paid attention to all the details - making sure we had the right mics for a windy day on the water during the ceremony and that the reception ran smoothly. I truly couldn't have asked for a better band and would recommend to anyone.
