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!

The best band. They have played at both of my daughter's wedding receptions. They put on the BEST show. The best money I spent

Best band ever!
Literally the BEST band ever!! Beyond exceptional talent, very interactive, professional with all aspects leading up to the event as well as at the event, and nice as can be. They definitely love their job and getting everyone up and dancing and having a great time! Lots of people were asking for their information (and still are!) so that they can use them for their future events. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Any chance I get to see them or hire them in the future I will without a doubt. If you want a really good band that is a lot of fun look no further - Phat Hat is the BEST!

We loved having Phat Hat at our wedding! They were very energetic and kept everyone on the dance floor all night! They even played an out of the ordinary special request for the father/bride dance. Thanks for making our night so much fun!! We highly recommend for your party, Rick was so easy to work with and quick with responses to our questions while we planned our Wedding night. Thanks so much!

Have absolutely zero complaints. The dance floor was packed the entire night, and the energy was like none other I have experienced at a wedding. Bottom Line, you want the Phat Hats to play at your wedding.

The band was wonderful. They get the crowd involved and play songs that every age group can enjoy. We had people asking for their contact information all night. I would definitely use them again and have recommended them to several people. Well worth the cost because they made the party!

AWESOME band! They are seriously SO much fun, fantastic performers. Perfect set list. We found them because they played at a friend's wedding, and we had to have them. Everyone was raving over how much fun our wedding was because of the amazing band.

Loved having this band at our wedding. Rick was easy to work with and always responded to emails quickly. Highly recommend! They had everyone dancing the whole time!!

If you are looking for an amazing band that can give you a heavy dose of soul, funk and Motown, look no further! These guys were incredible and the guests still rave about them. Most the bands we were finding either relied too much on cheesy wedding songs or were great bands, but weren't experienced in playing weddings. Phat Hat was exactly what we were looking for! They have great range and played a variety of songs that kept the guests dancing all night!
Rick (the guitarist), is very responsive and easy to work with. The entire band was very professional and top notch players. Highly recommend booking these guys for your wedding or event!

These guys rocked it. They were great fun and kept the dance floor going non stop. I believe they picked up about 350 new fans a couple of weeks ago.

Phat Hat KILLED it at our wedding. They were the talk of the party and many of our friends are planning on flying them to events around the country because they were so good. I loved every second of them playing at our wedding. The dance floor was PACKED the whole 4 hours they played.
