It was a pleasure having you perform at  our party. Our guest loved the bands' music and energy.  I think I danced more than anyone!  And you were great to be so supportive and helpful of Dom's wish to be a part of that.  I'm sure we and our friends will be coming to see Hip Pockit at one of the venues this winter.   

Thank you for helping to make the party a success.

You guys were great on Saturday!  We had so many people tell us how great the band was and asked how we found you guys! The shuttle driver for the hotel also told us how everyone was talking about how good the band was on the way back to the hotel !  Also Brad did a great job announcing the grand march, speeches, and the dances! 
We are so happy how everything turned out with Hip Pockit and couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! 

Thank you!

The Gilberts' Community Days Festival Committee can attest on how professional and engaging "Hip Pockit" band members performed. The band has performed our 2015 and 2016 Festivals. Both years they provided those in attendance, excellent music, and were very entertaining. The crowd was very responsive to their song choices, and appreciated their performances. All of our committee members agreed, "We will have them back again next year"

Hip Pockit has been a great addition to our live entertainment schedule. We continue to get requests to have them back each month and they are definitely a customer favorite. Their sound is amazing and they keep the crowd entertained the whole night!

Hip Pockit was WONDERFUL !  They were so entertaining and kept our guest on the dance floor all night at our Wedding Reception. They had people of all ages dancing the entire night and were very interactive with our crowd. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to anyone. They were fantastic.

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job playing our wedding. We had a wonderful time and so did our guest. Even the banquet employees commented that you were the best band that ever performed there. All of you were fantastic ! There is nothing better than having a live band at a wedding ,,,,,,,,,,especially if it's Hip Pockit.

Hip Pockit is the ultimate class act. They take music to another level - giving you a sound like no other. Three years in a row, they've been a crowd pleaser for us here at the Taste of Chicago.

Hi Guys! Thoroughly enjoyed your River Grove concert. It is very apparent how much you guys enjoy what you're doing. Especially enjoyed the Chicago Medley at the end. Wish you were doing more concerts.

Your band blew us away! As good as your demo music sounds it does not convey the excitement and energy you transmit from the stage. We loved the show. It is doubtful that Grayslake has ever had a band of your caliber. I think they were stunned. The band's performance was absolutely top notch.
Brian & Sue

After seeing and thoroughly enjoying Hip Pockit, we asked them if they would consider playing our wedding. We couldn't have had a smoother, more cooperative and awesome musical experience for all of our guests. We still get notes, emails saying "way to go with the band!"    Everyone loved Hip Pockit as they once again put on an incredible show of fun and dance tunes, classy wardrobe, and quality sound. What a gas, thanks so much for making our memorable wedding unforgettable!

The band is awesome and our group had a great time! Many of them thanked me..for finding Hip Pockit. Funny thing is it was by accident that we ended up at O'Brien's. Glad we did! Thanks again for we had a great evening!!!
Melanie

What a fabulous show! My wife and I were riding by O'Brien's last night, heard the band and thought we'd check it out. The Brass, vocals, guitar, and the rest were awesome. You now have new fans.Can't wait to see the next show. !
