“5/5. We loved the band, they managed to keep everybody dancing with a selection of classics that they made their own through various mash-ups and alterations. We had a number of skilled musicians in attendance who were all impressed with the overall standard and the groom in particular never left the dancefloor. Although it was slightly unnerving not to get chance to communicate directly with the band themselves prior to the day itself, they did not disappoint once they started playing. I would happily recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band who can cater to music lovers young and old. Thanks everyone.”

“Id just like to say how happy we were with Hipshaker who played at our party on Saturday night. I had asked for songs to get the party dancing and they certainly did that. The second set in particular was fantastic. From the band's version of the Cha Cha Slide, to a dance off between my daughter and her godfather, a true sight to behold. The band conducted themselves in a very professional manner throughout were extremely polite and discreet particularly when clearing their equipment away at the end, I did not even realise they had left.

Many thanks to the guys and also to Tailored Entertainment for the ease and professionalism shown in organising the booking. I'd definitely recommend you to friends.”

Communication with the team prior to the event was efficient and we found the whole process really simple. We knew that we wanted Hipshaker to play at our wedding after hearing them at a friend's wedding last year, and they certainly didn't disappoint......in fact they exceeded our expectations!
We just couldn't fault Callum and the rest of the band on the day. They were so friendly, professional and helpful throughout, and we really felt like they wanted our evening to be perfect for us. The music was fantastic and the dance-floor was full from start to finish. So many of our guests commented on the band and were so impressed with them. The boys were great fun and really added to the fantastic atmosphere.
We can't thank Hipshaker enough for creating the perfect end to a perfect day!”

“Hi Phoebe, Hipshaker were fabulous! I've had so many compliments about our choice of wedding band which made me very proud! They're not just a 'run of the mill' wedding band, you could really tell they'd spent time and effort planning and rehearsing stuff that really works for a wedding of people our age. Everyone especially loved the 'mash-up's'....very cool! At one point I was slightly concerned when I heard Oops-up-side-your-head playing (my worst nightmare!)....but when I looked around and saw the dancefloor was packed and the guys were getting everyone into it....I realized they really know what they're doing! The guys were really friendly, making time to come and congratulate us. I hope they felt welcome and were well fed with sausage butties!
Thanks again, I'll be definitely recommending them to anyone who asks in the future!”

“The wedding was wonderful, thank you. A perfect day for us. The band were absolutely amazing. The video online really does not do them justice. The songs they did were a perfect mixture & got my guests up dancing! I will certainly be recommending them to as many people as possible.They were discreet in their arrival too, (having been to previous weddings where bands make too much of a big deal). Having chosen to provide my own music between the bands sets, I felt really comfortable and confident that they had control of the playlist - making sure the music was constantly playing. However, having seen them play live music, I would definitely trust that they would also do a great job of playing the right kind of music between sets too.....if I'd known how good they were going to be, I would have let them do this - as I'm a bit of a music snob. In short, they absolutely nailed it and were worth every single penny. Please make sure they get this feedback! They helped make our night so special. Thanks again”

FAQ

I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?

Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.

Do you take requests?

We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.

How long do you take to set-up?

60 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.

What time do you play?

At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.

How long do you play for?

We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.

Can you provide music for our drinks reception?

Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute full band acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.

What is the difference between the ‘pre-mixed DJ service’ that comes with the standard package and the 'band member to DJ live' which is an optional extra?

The pre-mixed DJ service is where the band put on a bespoke playlist (you can request up to 30 songs in advance for this) through the PA before and after their live sets. We do this at most events and it works great - the volume of the music would be the same as if you had a DJ.

If you upgrade to the live DJ service, you can still send over preferences in advance, but you will also have a band member selecting and mixing tracks live on the night, as well as taking requests. The DJ will be happy to make important announcements but they will not talk constantly over or between tracks (that's just not our style!). We also think it's important to say that the DJ won't have a separate DJ booth - they will set up in an appropriate space (ideally to the side of the stage) and the PA/lighting will be the same as what is being used by the band.

Do you have your own PA and lighting?

Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.

What is the website guide price based on?

The published guide price is based on our 3-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Southport. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?

Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

Yes.

Will you perform our first dance?

Yes, as long as we have three weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.

How much space do you require?

We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.

How much power do you require?

2 x 13-amp sockets are fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

The band's standard rider is for a hot meal and soft drinks for the band members or a £15 pp rider buyout.

Can we see you play live before booking?

As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.

We had a number of skilled musicians in attendance who were all impressed with the overall standard and the groom in particular never left the dancefloor. Although it was slightly unnerving not to get chance to communicate directly with the band themselves prior to the day itself, they did not disappoint once they started playing. I would happily recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band who can cater to music lovers young and old. Thanks everyone.”

“Id just like to say how happy we were with Hipshaker who played at our party on Saturday night. I had asked for songs to get the party dancing and they certainly did that. The second set in particular was fantastic. From the band's version of the Cha Cha Slide, to a dance off between my daughter and her godfather, a true sight to behold. The band conducted themselves in a very professional manner throughout were extremely polite and discreet particularly when clearing their equipment away at the end, I did not even realise they had left.

Many thanks to the guys and also to Tailored Entertainment for the ease and professionalism shown in organising the booking. I'd definitely recommend you to friends.”

They're not just a 'run of the mill' wedding band, you could really tell they'd spent time and effort planning and rehearsing stuff that really works for a wedding of people our age. Everyone especially loved the 'mash-up's'....very cool! At one point I was slightly concerned when I heard Oops-up-side-your-head playing (my worst nightmare!)....but when I looked around and saw the dancefloor was packed and the guys were getting everyone into it....I realized they really know what they're doing! The guys were really friendly, making time to come and congratulate us. I hope they felt welcome and were well fed with sausage butties!
Thanks again, I'll be definitely recommending them to anyone who asks in the future!”

“The wedding was wonderful, thank you. A perfect day for us. The band were absolutely amazing. The video online really does not do them justice. The songs they did were a perfect mixture & got my guests up dancing! I will certainly be recommending them to as many people as possible.They were discreet in their arrival too, (having been to previous weddings where bands make too much of a big deal). Having chosen to provide my own music between the bands sets, I felt really comfortable and confident that they had control of the playlist - making sure the music was constantly playing. However, having seen them play live music, I would definitely trust that they would also do a great job of playing the right kind of music between sets too.....if I'd known how good they were going to be, I would have let them do this - as I'm a bit of a music snob. In short, they absolutely nailed it and were worth every single penny. Please make sure they get this feedback! They helped make our night so special. Thanks again”

FAQ

I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?

Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.

Do you take requests?

We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.

How long do you take to set-up?

60 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.

What time do you play?

At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.

How long do you play for?

We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.

Can you provide music for our drinks reception?

Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute full band acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.

What is the difference between the ‘pre-mixed DJ service’ that comes with the standard package and the 'band member to DJ live' which is an optional extra?

The pre-mixed DJ service is where the band put on a bespoke playlist (you can request up to 30 songs in advance for this) through the PA before and after their live sets. We do this at most events and it works great - the volume of the music would be the same as if you had a DJ.

If you upgrade to the live DJ service, you can still send over preferences in advance, but you will also have a band member selecting and mixing tracks live on the night, as well as taking requests. The DJ will be happy to make important announcements but they will not talk constantly over or between tracks (that's just not our style!). We also think it's important to say that the DJ won't have a separate DJ booth - they will set up in an appropriate space (ideally to the side of the stage) and the PA/lighting will be the same as what is being used by the band.

Do you have your own PA and lighting?

Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.

What is the website guide price based on?

The published guide price is based on our 3-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Southport. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?

Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

Yes.

Will you perform our first dance?

Yes, as long as we have three weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.

How much space do you require?

We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.

How much power do you require?

2 x 13-amp sockets are fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?

The band's standard rider is for a hot meal and soft drinks for the band members or a £15 pp rider buyout.

Can we see you play live before booking?

As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
