Hip and Happy Clients say...
"I cannot recommend Steve and Hip Service more. We planned a destination wedding in Tahoe (from NYC!) via email and phone, and Steve was incredibly responsive, professional and patient with us and all of our questions. The day of the wedding I have NO DOUBT that everything would go off without a hitch because of their attention to detail and the countless hours Steve spent on the phone with us. The band even surprised us a week before our wedding by learning a pretty obscure song for our first dance (Shine a Light by the Rolling Stones) and KILLED IT, to the point that the band cut out at one point so everyone could clap along with the lead singer. It was honestly my favorite moment of the whole day. LOVE Hip Service!!"

"Thank you for making Jerry and me look so good! Maureen and Mike set the tone with their happiness and you provided the music to make the wedding so much fun! The band will always be one of the key ingredients to a successful party, and you and the Hip Service group are PERFECTION! Wow! You are fabulous! We enjoyed every moment of our time with you. Thank you Hip Service!"

"I cannot recommend Hip Service with more enthusiasm than I am doing! They were awesome. My daughter got married a couple of months ago, and Hip Service was better than we could have asked for. From the moment we signed them up, I was excited. Steve was great to work with. The band learned a new song for us, Steve arranged a conference call between me, my daughter (the bride), our DJ and himself to go over every detail and how everything was going to flow. When the band started playing, it was amazing! They provided quieter music for cocktail hour - and after dinner really got things going! I was walking back from the restroom at one point and noticed that there was NOT ONE person sitting at their table. Literally every single guest was on the dance floor practically the entire evening - just what we were hoping for!
Amy's wedding was amazing. The venue (a winery) was perfect. The flowers were spectacular. Our wedding planner was unbelievable. The food was incredible - both the bride and groom are chefs. But I have to say, I think the band made the wedding!! Thank you Steve and Hip Service - I loved every minute."

Choosing the right live entertainment can certainly take your wedding to the next level. At Hip Entertainment, we know that event success in all in the details. We have made it our mission to provide the absolute best entertainment and customer service to our clients. As you search for the perfect band, here are some important questions to consider:
* Does the band have a proven track record of rave reviews from wedding clients?
* Are their references authentic and recent?
* Is the band flexible and easy to work with?
* Are they completely reliable (crucial in every phase of preparing for and performing at a wedding or special event)
* Can the band handle all MC duties for the evening?
* Do they understand that more volume does not mean better music? Can they play quietly, when necessary?
* Does the band offer options for ceremony and cocktail music?
* Will they learn special requests, for example for first dance and father-daughter dances?
* Will the band customize their set list to your preferences?
* Does the band carry General Liability insurance? Most venues require your vendors to carry insurance.
* What professional organizations does the band belong to? Are they current on new and emerging trends in the entertainment industry?
* Is the band a "preferred vendor" at the choice wedding venues?
