Look No Further!
I first heard Hoi Polloi when they played my friends’ wedding a few years ago. I knew right away that whenever I was getting married, I’d want them to play my wedding. We had so much fun, I don’t think I sat down the entire night. Fast forward to August 2019 after getting engaged I knew right away I needed to secure Jim and the band to play my wedding. We didn’t even have our venue or our date but I emailed Jim right away. Not only was he kind, honest and professional, but he even gave us a few recommendations for our venue when I was having a hard time searching. As soon as we found our venue, we secured our date with the band. When Covid forced us to postpone our wedding, Jim and the band were completely understanding, supportive, and made sure that they would be available for us on our new date. The transition was seamless and I felt so relieved knowing that no matter what I would still be getting married and still have the band of my dreams. I can’t wait until next year!Sent on 08/14/2020

Caring and Cool
Hoi Poloi was a recommended band through our venue. We went to see them perform (awesome), and chat with them (really friendly and willing to be super accommodating with song choices etc). It was easy to contact them afterward to book our date. They were quick to respond, and have been excellent with communication about the upcoming wedding, must plays, absolute do not plays etc. We were set to get married this October 31 (2020) - then, well, 2020 =(Sent on 08/13/2020
As soon as we realized this would not be the wedding we had planned for, we decided to rescheduled the date. Jim could not have been more understanding and accommodating when we contacted him about this and with making the change ... We can't wait until we can have the celebration we dreamed of next year with Hoi Poloi leading the celebration!

Best vendor I’ve dealt with!
I can’t say enough good things about Hoi Polloi. Although they did not perform at my wedding (yet), their professionalism and flexibility leading up deserve a 5 star review. Planning a wedding during a global pandemic has been far from easy, but Jim has made every effort to make this feel as painless as possible. From answering all my questions in detail, holding multiple dates for us, and genuinely being passionate about what they do, I could not recommend Hoi Polloi enough. By far the easiest and most attentive vendor I have dealt with, and I can’t thank them enough for that!Sent on 08/16/2020
