Best wedding reception band
My husband and I were extremely happy with Phat Hat for our wedding! Their song list, groovy sound, and samples online are what sold us on them in the beginning. And they certainly delivered!! Our guests loved them and danced the night away. The manager Rick was very nice and helpful leading up to the wedding also. Since the ceremony and reception were both in the same room, we had to set up the band equipment and hide it during the ceremony, which they made happen without a problem. They were exactly what we were looking for and I will recommend them to everyone. Thanks Phat Hat for making our wedding so much fun!!

A Big Decision That Paid Off! Exceeded Every Expectation. Complete Professionals
The wedding music, in our experience, defines the wedding. This was a big decision we didn't take lightly & therefore we ran the gamut in exploring our music options. Many available bands presented themselves. Many were great but the vast majority did not have the sound and originality we were looking for. PhatHat stood out immediately & we never looked back. If you listen to them play - you'll understand. My Fiance was a bit apprehensive & Rick was there every step of the way accommodating the requests for songs & even adding a female vocalist. The communication throughout was wonderful. Now the experience itself. PhatHat came through in a big way. The music was incredible & the energy they brought was real. Even before the band got on stage & while we were walking down Chartres to the reception the Lead vocalist passed by us in his car & was bringing nothing but positive energy up immediately. We knew then it was going to be a great night. Complete professionals in their craft. The dance floor was filled the entire night & our friends and family got lost in the music. We could not have asked for a better band. Thanks Rick for everything. It was everything we wanted and more. Highly recommend.

Best band, best decision
Phat Hat was the absolute BEST band. We hired them for our New Orleans wedding reception after first watching them during a live outdoor show. Once you seem them perform, you'll only want them for your band. When we told friends & vendors that we were searching for a soulful, funky and upbeat band, every single person recommended Phat Hat! During the reception, many guests approached us to comment on how good the band was. Their sound guy was even there, surveying the room and making sure everything was perfect. EVERYONE was dancing. At the end of our 4-hour reception, we still had a packed house with the crowd screaming for an encore from Phat Hat. On top of this, they were so incredibly accommodating, professional and quick to respond to emails. You will never regret the decision to hire Phat Hat. Stop looking and book them before someone else does!
While some bands shy away from endorsing other bands often because of the stigma of competition. However when it comes to Phat Hat the only emotion that I have is of admiration and respect for what they do. They are one of the few bands that we refer business to. Why? Because I know that Rick and the rest of the band will exceed expectations and set the bar in terms of professionalism
