About Hit Play

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!

    Hit Play is the best!!

    We had Hit Play at our wedding 09/2019. They were amazing!! They played everything we wanted them to play, they have a wide range of music that they play. Anything from country to old school songs to pop from today. They kept our guests entertained the entire night! Everyone kept saying that we had the most fun wedding they had ever been to and I think it was mostly because of the band! One of my friends even booked them for her wedding after coming to ours. Very flexible and reasonable. 100% recommend!

    I wish I could give 10 stars!

    Ryan and his band absolutely blew all expectations I had out of the water. When it came to music and entertainment I didn’t have to worry about a single thing on my wedding day. Ryan was happy to help offer suggestions on intro songs when we couldn’t decide and it was exactly what we wanted. All of the guests danced the night away and had so much fun! I can’t wait to have an excuse to have another event so that we can have Hit Play come and perform again. Our day was absolutely perfect and a big part of that was due to Hit Play. Ryan and the band are excellent and absolutely made the night memorable. I would give them 10 stars if I could!
