I cannot say enough good things about Hoi Polloi; I wish I could give more than 5 stars. From the very beginning Jim was extremely responsive and returned my emails within hours and even while on a business trip. The band was extremely flexible as we had to change wedding dates and then 2 days before the wedding we found out we needed a microphone for our ceremony which we weren't expecting. Hoi Polloi to the rescue! They all showed up much earlier than they were originally hired for and set up the ceremony site. I had zero stress because I knew Jim and his crew had everything handled. Hoi Polloi has hundreds of songs in their library and yet my husband and I chose 2 songs they didn't know for our mother/son dance and father/daughter dance and yet again Hoi Polloi came through and learned these songs for us!!!! Unbelievable!! It's been almost a week now and I am still getting texts and phone calls from people asking for their information and telling me it was the best wedding entertainment they've ever seen. The venues bartender who works weddings year round thanked me for hiring them because he loved the music and appreciated a very talented band. Our guests were up on the dance floor the entire time and didn't want it to end. Hoi Polloi is top notch and I recommend them 1000%!! I cannot wait to visit them at their future public gigs.

We got married on August 25 and Hoi Polloi was our band. They did a phenomenal job! Susan provided the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. It was perfect. The reception music was awesome. The entire night our guests were raving about the music - how good they sounded and the variety of music they played. We could not have asked for more. Our first dance song was I Found Love. They learned the song for us and we fell in love with the way they sang it. We actually liked it better than the original. Jim did an amazing job as the mc. He kept the party moving and the guests on the dance floor. They were so easy to work with both before the wedding and during. We have had numerous guests already request their information so they can hire them for an event. My husband is already saying he wants to have a party just to hear them again!

Hoi Polloi was AMAZING! From the start, Jim made the experience comfortable and smooth! He and the band were flexible with our plans! On the day of the wedding it rained moving some of what was planned inside the band adjusted and everything went so well!! Our night was perfect because of how this band performed and got our entire wedding moving:) I highly recommend hiring them!
