Introducing our most popular party band working exclusively with Alive Network!

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.

What Have They Done Before?
Hipster have performed at many prestigious venues over the years including: The Grosvenor Hotel, The Savoy Hotel, The Natural History Museum, Manchester Town Hall, The Royal Courts of Justice, Eltham Palace, Kensington Roof Gardens, Euro Disney, Kew Gardens, Bath Assembly Rooms, 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, Marks and Spencer, Hewlett Packard, Zafer Associates, Oxford University Press, NSPCC, 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 gran's - 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. Just specify to your agent what your requirements are and Hipster will have a rummage through their wardrobes!

 

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!

Hipster's show can be formatted in several ways; 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 (please see booking options). 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.


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.

booked Hipster for their Wedding in Worcestershire May 2024

“Hipster were incredible and everything we could have wanted for our marquee wedding at home in Worcestershire. The initial conversations with Joe were relaxed yet to the point and revolved around what we wanted. Joe listened to our (questionable?!) music tastes to help the band deliver a set that catered for all, and importantly a DJ set in between live performances that kept the dance floor full. The entire band really cared about what we wanted with there being full care and consideration to delivering the best day for us - for example they on arrival they liaised with our MC to ensure that they weren't unloading during speeches, something that we weren't aware of however was completely in our best interest. With regards to the set, these guys filled up our dancefloor and kept the party going from the first dance to close.
