Hipster is highly recommended

"Sorry it's taken a couple of weeks for me to get around to thanking you for playing at my 50th party in Weybridge the 1st Feb. That was the second time that we have used you and as per the first time you were magnificent.

All my guests loved the music you played and many are still laughing about your vocals when our "DJ and Sound man" took a "larger fuelled" dive on the dance floor to end up at your feet.

I have already given out your details to a number of other people so I hope that a lot more business comes your way. Hopefully we will have the need to hire you again soon!

PS, thanks for tolerating my little stint on stage with our makeshift band!"

4-piece band: Lead male vocal/electric/acoustic guitar, bass/backing vocals, lead guitar/backing vocals, drums/backing vocals.





"You guys were amazing. Absolutely awesome!"
-HRH Prince Harry

"You guys are a great band. Really tight. Love the harmonies"
-Mike Scott, The Waterboys



"The wedding was the most perfect day thanks and as for the band well I honestly can't think of enough ways to describe how totally incredible they were!!! They made the evening part of our wedding and people have been asking me non stop who they were. They were just amazing. Thanks also for all your help. There was never a time throughout the planning process when I didn't feel totally confident that everything was running smoothly where the wedding entertainment was concerned. I told all my guests that I booked the band through your agency." Liz Kaniewska

What Do They Do?
Hipster are the ideal choice for any event. They regularly entertain audiences at weddings, corporate events, and private parties - and now specialise in large corporate awards dinners proving they are just as comfortable performing energetic shows at large scale formal events as they are at bringing the house down at fun-packed parties.


As Alive Network's most popular rock and pop party band the boys work exclusively with the Alive Network team to develop shows and tailor performances precisely to suit your individual requirements. (Just take a look at their previous clients' references below for all the assurance you need!)


What Have They Done Before?
Hipster are young but by no means inexperienced in their field. They have performed at many prestigious venues over the years including: The Grosvenor Hotel The Savoy Hotel The Natural History Museum Manchester Town Hall Guildhall London The Royal Courts of Justice Gordonstoun School Eltham Palace Kensington Roof Gardens Euro Disney Kew Gardens Bath Assembly Rooms Stationers Hall London Manchester Art Gallery The Grand Hotel Brighton plus numerous Awards ceremonies including IVCA HFMA Wella Trend Vision Awards and NABS. The last 6 years have seen the boys working along side numerous celebrities including T4 presenter Steve Jones impressionist Rory Bremner comedian Lenny Henry legendary record producer Nick Lowe and BBC Radio 2's Jeremey Vine amongst others.


Their current corporate clients include Channel 5 TV Unilever Marks and Spencer Hewlett Packard Total/Elf Zafer Associates Abbot Pine Cliffs Resort Portugal Oxford University Press NSPCC (flagship annual ball) Royal Bank of Scotland Barclays and Natwest - to name a few!!


Internationally Hipster have performed in Singapore, Dubai, Potugal, Spain, France and Austria.



What Sort of Music Do They Play?
Their extensive and varied setlist caters for all ages and musical tastes including classic songs by The Beatles The Rolling Stones Stevie Wonder, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon plus many, many more! You can also choose from a selection of popular first dance songs and be absolutely sure that guests of all ages - from grunge kids to granny - will be up dancing and singing all night!


Please Note: Due to their popularity, Hipster are busy throughout the year, and therefore cannot always fulfill requests for learning specific songs. Please refer to their extensive setlist.


What will the band look like?
The band can tailor their look to suit your needs on the night. For award ceremonies, they can dress formally in black clothes, and for private parties and less formal events they can dress more casually if you prefer. Essentially the keyword here is flexibility! Just specify to your agent what your requirements are and Hipster will have a rummage through their wardrobes!


The band has a four-piece line up, and need only a stage space of 5 x 4 metres.



Your Event
Featuring musicians of the highest standard, all with several years notable previous experience within the music industry, Hipster are a party band like no other. Each member is extremely gifted in his own right, and the band has invested heavily in the highest quality instruments and sound equipment. Having Hipster at your event is the closest thing you'll get to having any classic band such as The Beatles or Stone Roses play a personal live performance just for you.


Their show can be formatted in several ways:
You can choose from 2 x 45 minute sets, 2 x 60 minute sets or 3 x 40 minute sets.


In addition, the band can also provide a set of acoustic songs, specifically tailored for drinks receptions or during dinner. They can also perform 30 second clips or sound bites to use as walk-on music for corporate award ceremonies. Hipster are the only band you need for an all-day event, able to provide music for every scenario, be it a low key acoustic set, or a full on rock'n' roll spectacular!


Hipster are incredibly flexible with all aspects of their show. No gig is too big or too far away. They are very adaptable to a range of room types and always adjust volume levels to suit your requirements.


Hipster's set is lively, exciting, dynamic and full of enthusiasm, and is regularly updated to include current songs. In particular, the band have spent a great deal of time and effort tailoring shows to suit weddings and private parties, of which they play at least 100 per year, as well as many corporate and media award ceremonies.


And for when the band are not playing...
There is the option of music between sets, or a DJ package. Like many modern DJs, Hipster use a laptop computer containing a huge amount of popular songs. These songs are mixed as they would be using CD decks, and a band member will control the laptop in between live performances, make basic announcements, and take requests from guests. 


The band's lights and awesome PA system double-up for use during DJ sets. If you have any specific requests for music that you would like the DJ to include, please forward any lists to us well in advance, so the band can obtain as many of your preferred tracks as possible, should any be missing from their collection. As we are sure you can appreciate, the service offered 'in house' by the band is significantly less than the cost of a separate DJ.


NEW CORPORATE PACKAGE
For corporate events Hipster now offer a special package including:
* Uprated PA system with unrivalled sound quality to cater for larger events.
* Additional lighting and effects.
* DJ package.
* Flexible timings for early arrival and later finish.

Please ask your agent for details and prices



Superior equipment
The band's show uses a 5000 watt full range high definition KV2 Audio PA system, and an Allen and Heath mixing console with professional outboard effects at all performances, plus a complete lighting show including 8 x par 56 LED cans with built-in sound-to-light controllers, 4 x multi-coloured moving heads with a 360 degree rotation, so you have full stage lighting as well as disco lighting for your dance floor.


Hipster use only the very best instruments, amplifiers and microphones, including Fender, Gibson, Gretsch and Music Man Guitars, Fender, Hayden and Ashdown amps, Shure and Rode Microphones and Pearl and DW drums and percussion.


They also have a recently purchased a brand new Mercedes Sprinter van for transporting themselves and all their equipment, ensuring punctuality,reliability and a truly professional appearance.


Customer satisfaction
Hipster take great care to work with all their clients to ensure complete satisfaction both before and during the event. The band are happy to recommend the best possible selection of songs based on your requirements and will liaise with your venue to ensure smooth running on the day, and that all technical requirements are met in full.


From the first note Hipster can fill a dance floor and keep it full all night! Need more convincing? Listen to these people...


"Lucy and I have both been to many similar functions and seen many similar bands, and we can honestly say that we have seen none better than Hipster. This was the first time that we have tried to book a band for a private function, and we genuinely feel that we got lucky in picking you guys." - Matt Winterburn


"......your performance exceeded all our expectations. I had hoped that the dance floor was going to be full all night - but I never expected it to be quite that full! From the moment the guys played their first note - the place erupted!!" - Jo Liston


"I want to thank Alive Network and Hipster for an absolutely fabulous night. They were all brilliant. They had the whole wedding party up dancing till the very end and were still shouting for more. They made our wedding an absolute scream and we can't thank them enough. They were very special in the way they personalised it for us, which a lot of bands don't do."


"In Joanna's and my wildest dreams we could not have asked for a more entertaining and superb performance that had everyone dancing and singing until the early hours." - Darren Harvey


So if you're lucky enough to want Hipster for a date when they're not already booked, then congratulations - you've made an excellent choice!


Alive Network's Promise
Hipster genuinely have all the charisma, stage presence and talent of any famous act and bring an unrivalled level of excitement to any party. No matter how many bands you've seen before, you've never seen a band as good as Hipster!


Please be aware that, while the band can happily adjust the volume according to your needs, you are advised to consult your venue while considering a rock and pop band of this nature due to the type of music they play.

We booked Hipster for our wedding reception based entirely on the rave reviews given on Alive Network and Hipster truly lived up to their stellar reputation. They were the highlight of the evening. We loved the band, all the guests loved the band and we've had a lot of messages to say how much fun everyone had singing & dancing along. Our speeches ran over meaning we delayed them starting, but they were totally adaptable and even very kindly cut their own break short to give us a longer live set. It was really cool of them. They were punctual, seemed genuinely pleased to be there and absolutely rocked the place! As well as being exceptional musicians (the guitar solos were amazing) all of the band were great fun, polite and read their audience brilliantly. I can now add my own rave review - you'll never regret booking these guys, they're 10/10.

Hipster were AMAZING! We had always said we wanted music to be a key theme, and what guests remember from our wedding, and we chose Hipster based on their excellent reviews, online demos and set list. Having never heard them live, we were still a little nervous as to how the night would go. We needn’t have worried, as I can safely say Hipster are by far the best cover band I’ve ever seen or heard, which after 10 years spent listening to après-ski bands throughout the Alps is quite a statement. They learnt two new songs especially for us, played some impromptu improvised extras on the night to accommodate requests, and judged the crowd and our requested playlist perfectly to make the night go off with a bang. They also have a great attitude and are the most friendly, helpful band I’ve ever come across – and all the guests loved them. They DJ’d between sets, put up with the guests who’d ‘had a few’, and created the perfect atmosphere from romantic first dance, through family-friendly rock classics which had everyone dancing, and on to a wild finale. We can’t say THANK YOU enough and have already recommended Hipster to another friend for their wedding next year. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

I have honestly never seen such a response to any band that we have had at our events. There were plenty of people on the dance floor the whole time, everyone was having a great time, and one of our guests even joined Hipster on stage for a song. Very happy with their performance. Hipster were awesome, I can highly recommend them.

Hipster played at our wedding on the 18/10/13. We chose Hipster after their previous good reviews and we are very glad we did. Joe and the lads were all great, both providing a great nights entertainment and being down to earth and friendly on the day. We would recommend them to anyone for their up and coming wedding. I just wish we were getting married again soon so we could invite them back again.

If you want the best then all you need to do is book Hipster, it's that simple!! Having been in the industry for the past 6 years and also having been in bands, the missus afforded/trusted me with just one job for the wedding! BOOK THE BAND!! Having seen Hipster on numerous occasions and dealt with them regularly I knew there was only one band for me to book! They arrived with no fuss and from the very first chord that they struck the dance floor was packed, my 80 year grandad was up, my 3 year old cousin was up and absolutely everyone in between! I've had countless comments from my family and friends to say that they were amazing and that it was the best wedding they've ever been too! I can honestly say that they made the night truly memorable for all of us!! Me and the other half barely left the dance floor all evening and that's exactly what we wanted, once the "formalities" were out of the way all we wanted to do was get on the dance floor and party, and with Hipster that's exactly what we did! All that's left to say is a massive thank you guys, you made our wedding day!! Two Words: BOOK THEM! Nick (Alive Network Agent) and Jo Taylor! x

Me and the other half barely left the dance floor all evening and that's exactly what we wanted, once the "formalities" were out of the way all we wanted to do was get on the dance floor and party, and with Hipster that's exactly what we did!

All that's left to say is a massive thank you guys, you made our wedding day!!

Two Words: BOOK THEM!

Hipster

5/5 stars
If you're contemplating booking Hipsters because of a recommendation, your own research or have come across this act by pure luck....book them & don't think twice about it. We had an amazing wedding; from the dress (of course!), to the venue, food & guests...it was great... but quite honestly, it was the band who took it from a great wedding, to an unforgettable one. Not just for us but our guests too. One of our guests was just outside & genuinely thought we'd booked The Killers. Ok, he'd had a drink ...but it shows you the standard. Sod the Killers...we had the Hipsters! We had 2 sets satisfying both the older & younger guests, who were commenting on them all night. I've been to weddings where dance floors have been lacking & that was probably my biggest fear going into the day. Turns out, we should have made the dance floor bigger. It was heaving. My favourite memory of the day by far was definitely when I stood still for a moment, trying to make sure I absorbed as much of the wedding day as I could (as everyone rightly warned us that it would go quickly)...as I stood there & saw my family, friends & colleagues going completely bonkers on the dance floor (half of them with zero rhythm at all I might add), I knew we'd thrown a darn good wedding. Thank you so much.
