Excellent Band, Excellent Value, Excellent Experience!!

Hoopla made planning our wedding ceremony and reception music a breeze! My husband and I got married at The Banks Waterfront seeking a very classy and upscale affair that turned into a real party after dinner! This band did just that for us. This band also has a dj, which we loved because they played songs we requested during any breaks and worked with us to have the perfect blend of live singing and songs we wanted played by the dj. Did I mention they also have a male and female lead singer who are both incredible?!!
Anytime we called or reached out we got immediate response and they were EXTREMELY accommodating, kind and brought the party on our wedding night! Hoopla worked with us to play the music we wanted, took requests and made the night so much fun for everyone! Cannot say enough good about this band. We have gotten compliments from so many guests how talented they were. You will not regret booking Hoopla...everyone will be on the dance floor!

Highly recommend Hoopla!!

I would highly recommend having Hoopla as the band for your wedding! They sound amazing! Both the female and male lead vocalists have beautiful voices and the horn section was superb! Numerous guests at our wedding commented on how fabulous the band sounded and the dance floor was packed all night! The band not only played at our reception, but also were able to provide music during our ceremony and cocktail hour. Very reasonably priced and made the reception so much fun!!
