RESERVE BANK XMAS PARTY:


KPMG DINNER:


WETA PARTY:


NEW YEARS EVE



WEDDING PERFORMANCE AS A DUO:



THE HIPNOTICS are ideal if you are wanting a live band who play classic hits PLUS plenty of modern hits as well. By mixing backing tracks in with the live singing, live guitar, live drums and live saxophone, they deliver the latest songs very accurately unlike many covers bands that tend to shy away from the technical complexity of playing the latest chart topping tunes - The HIPNOTICS embrace them by the use of technology. As well as Ainslie Allen the band also features Darren Mathiassen from SHAPESHIFTER and The HOLLY SMITH BAND on drums, David Greer on guitar/vocals, and Chris Pierce on saxophone (depending on which size you decide to book).

The HIPNOTICS fill the dance floor full from the first song to the last, and have more testimonials that any other band on the DGM website.


TESTIMONIAL:

"I wanted to drop you a note to (formally) thank you for a truly
fantastic performance from the Hipnotics at my 50th Do at Prefab Hall
last night.

I stopped counting the number of people that came up to me during the
night to say how fantastic the band were - and in the next breath what
an amazing singer and perfomer the lead singer is.

It has been a similar theme this morning. I have received numerous
texts and emails from friends saying what a great night they had and,
without exception, everyone has mentioned the band.

I was pretty confident that the band would be good, as my husband Matt
is a musician and did a bit of research choosing them. However they far
exceeded both Matt and my expectations. They really made the party -
and I now have very sore feet from dancing.

In short, the Hipnotics are a class act and they are an absolute credit
to your agency".

Cheers and thanks
Sarah Kemp

'We have just come back from a fabulous celebration over in the Wairarapa for my Dad's 60th - it was a super weekend! BUT what made the party (apart of course from the gathering of gorgeous family and friends) was the MUSIC! The HIPNOTICS band played absolutely amazing music and had everyone dancing within minutes of starting and had everyone dancing right to the end! THEY were incredible and I can entirely recommend them for Christmas celebrations, birthday parties, absolutely ANYTHING! They also had recommended a jazz band for the beginning of the evening which was used and they too were fabulous! ENTIRELY recommend them for anything - thanks for the super music and for just making that night a NIGHT of dancing! PERFECT!!'

Sarah Wells


'Dear David and Team
The Hipnotics are a superb act, all of our guests have raved about them, the quality of the sound and their undeniable talent. We do feel incredibly lucky to have had such fabulous artists perform at our party of a life time. They are full of energy, superb vocal artists and musicians, and kept the dance floor full all night.
We would highly recommend the services of DGM to all of our friends and family. Connected to superb music makers - you really can't go wrong.

Many thanks,
Tania & Anton'

"Hi David
Thank you for recommending the Hipnotics band for our Unisys function. The band was truly outstanding, great music to dance to. Our function was a huge success. I have had so many people tell me how great they were, in fact a few people have asked how they go about booking them.
I personally would like to thank you David for providing such a great service, very professional. The Unisys Social club will definitely be in contact when we plan our next corporate function"

"Had the Hipnotics play at our wedding function last Saturday and they rocked
– Great dance music, every single person in the room was up boogying – it was fantastic.
Strongly recommend them for any event you may be considering".
Jane Hart

The HIPNOTICS are available as a duo, trio or 4 piece option to suit all budgets. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DUO OR TRIO ARE THE STANDARD OPTIONS. The sound of the band is exactly the same for all sizes as is the repertoire.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...

CAN CLIENTS USE THEIR OWN iPOD? Absolutely - The HIPNOTICS are happy to connect your iPod into their sound system for you to play music before they begin and during their 2 short breaks if required. Alternatively they will 'DJ' a selection of lovely background music from when your guests arrive (choosing the music in consultation with you) and continuing thoughout the entire event including helping you use the microphone for all the speeches and timing the background music seemlessly to create the perfect music all day. The 'DJ' will include playing your favourite dance tracks in the bands short breaks and even after the band finish to keep the party rocking into the 'small hours' if required.

WHAT WILL THEY BE WEARING? The HIPNOTICS wear very tidy performance clothes unless advised otherwise by their clients.

IS IT OK FOR CLIENTS TO REQUEST SONGS? Absolutely – this is encouraged.

BREAKS FOR THE BAND - WHEN AND HOW OFTEN? They play for a full hour then have a 10 minute break but play dance tracks through their sound system during these breaks. Clients are welcome to supply their own iPods for the break music if they wish.

USE OF SOUND GEAR - MICROPHONE - HOW WILL WE USE IT - ARE THERE INSTRUCTIONS? You are welcome to hire the bands digital wireless microphone ($50) which is ideal for speeches and simple to use.


DO THEY TAKE UP MUCH ROOM? No they don't! They can perform their entire repertoire as a duo - this is the most popular size for Weddings. The duo takes up about as much room as a DJ ie just 3m x2m of space.

ANY COUNCIL ISSUES ie NOISE CONTROL? The HIPNOTICS have never had a noise control issue.

DO THEY NEED ANY REFRESHMENTS? Non-alcoholic refreshments would be appreciated.


"The band was fantastic - people are still talking about the Hipnotics, they certainly added something special to the Birthday celebrations and people up dancing and singing! Fabulous. We would highly recommend them to anyone planning a corporate or personal function.
Thanks"

According to all the emails we’re getting from happy punters (including, I hasten to add, the GM of the DomPost) last night’s show was the best yet - and I’m well aware of the big part you guys played in that. You sounded fantastic and were a total pleasure to work with. If you’d like any sort of testimonial for your website, drop me a line and I’d be happy to write you a glowing review!

3 SEPT 2016 The HIPNOTICS

Hi David
We absolutely loved your band and are definitely keen to rebook for 2017. We will come back with dates to check your availability. We were all so impressed with your incredible repertoire (something for everyone), fabulous musicianship and of course the incredible talent and voice of your lead singer - wow she is NZs best kept secret. Getting so many of the crowd up from the second song and keeping nearly everyone dancing all night was amazing. The strong call for repeated encores at the end was testament to your talent. We also were very impressed with your professionalism - so easy to deal with and so great setting up early and with such a lot of equipment. We thought the value you provided was outstanding.

Hi David

Thoroughly enjoyed the band, I have had comments from everyone at the wedding and they said the band was awesome.

It was so hot in the Icon lounge that everyone was out on the Balcony. Until the MC came out to chase everyone inside to dance.

Hey we certainly enjoyed Hipnotics, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else having a function. They were absolutely awesome and well worth the money.

Thank you so much

I stopped counting the number of people that came up to me during the

I was pretty confident that the band would be good, as my husband Matt

The HIPNOTICS 17 OCT 2015 Wedding

Subject: thank you

Hi David - it was lovely to meet you, and thank you so much for your contribution to a brilliant evening at The Boatshed for our wedding the other weekend. As far as I can remember, the only time the dancefloor was ever empty was when you were taking a break!

The jazz was great to have before dinner, and then you and Christina afterwards were fabulous! I really appreciated the time Christina took with the small children, and giving them a chance to sing on the mike. It was great to see so many people kicking back and having a great boogie through the evening (the sight of my hubby's boss bouncing around like a teenager dancing is an image I never expected to see!).

I'm thrilled I was give a recommendation for The Hipnotics as it was fabulous to have you be part of it and ensure our wedding was a great time for everyone.

Hopefully our paths may cross again in the future...

Regards,
Louise Brinsley

Please pass on my thanks and regards to them.

A quick note to thank you all for your efforts and to report that the punters loved the night!

The venue looked spectacular, the music was spot on and not too loud, the meal was delicious and everyone I spoke to had a wonderful time.

We also raised $11,000 for the world-wide fight against polio.

So all in all – a top class event that sold people on Wellington and that we do things extremely professionally in this ‘capital’ location.

28 MARCH 2014 HIPNOTICS Wedding


Hi there

The Hipnotics were brilliant at our wedding; they had everyone up and
dancing at the first song and the dance floor was packed until the final
curtain. Everyone just loved them.

Having an acoustic set playing while we were off having pictures taken,
and again during the meal between the speeches was just perfect. They
blended into the background but kept the atmosphere upbeat throughout the
entire day.

Our special day could not have been any more perfect and the Hipnotics
were instrumental in that success.

Thanks a million

I had lots of comments about the quality of the band and how good they thought you all were. I wouldn't be surprised if you got a few bookings out of it.

I hear there are a few booking in to the James Cook for New Years Eve! Thanks again and please pass on my thanks to the others.

13 OCTOBER 2011 THE HIPNOTICS

Hi David,

I spoke with the team today and the feedback was largely positive. They did say it was a bit flat at the start but that was probably due to the venue, the fact that everyone was moving from the other room and the Hipnotics just getting to know everyone. By the end they were pumping and everyone was happy.

The general consensus is that we would happily hire them again.

Thank you for everything

The feedback from our Party was that the band was great.  There were people on the dancefloor the whole night and they thoroughly enjoyed the bands performance.
 
Our crowd is is very vocal as you can imagine so I hope the band weren't too affected.

THE HIPNOTICS january 8 2011 WEDDING

Dear David and Team

We would like to thank you for your advice and patience as we planned the music for our wedding ceremony and reception.

There were many revisions to our music brief, but the final plans worked perfectly, and we could not agree more with the high recommendation which the Hypnotics is given by DGM.
From the PA system provided for the ceremony through to the final packdown of the event, everything was efficient and seamless.

The Hynotics are a superb act, all of our guests have raved about them, the quality of the sound and their undeniable talent. We do feel incredibly lucky to have had such fabulous artists perform at our party of a life time. They are full of energy, superb vocal artists and musicians, and kept the dance floor full all night.

We would highly recommend the services of DGM to all of our friends and family. Connected to superb music makers - you really can't go wrong.

Many thanks,
Tania & Anton

OCT 2010 THE HIPNOTICS (as a Duo)


Hi there,

Thanks so much for the fantastic performance by The Hipnotics at the Interagency Spring Ball. Everyone raved about the band, and the dance floor was packed from the moment the band started right through to their last song. As one person said in the event survey "The band were the highlight for me, they played just the right mix of songs and really got the night going. It was a shame when they had to finish, would've been good to hear them play for a little bit longer".  I would definitely use The Hipnotics again, and recommend them to anyone.

Thanks

16 OCT 2010 THE HIPNOTICS

Hi David,

Yes thanks - we certainly enjoyed the performance by The Hipnotics.
They were fantastic. We had a number of comments from people who
attended the conference dinner along the lines of this being the best
conference dinner ever. I think the band contributed to that
significantly. I will certainly have no hesitation about recommending
them to people I speak to.

Kind regards

Many thanks for recommending and organising the Hipnotics to play at our recent 60th Birthday Ball. It was a huge success and a lot of that success can be attributed to Dave and the girls for the music. We had the dance floor full from start to finish. Would recommend this band for any function.

Dear David and Dave,

This is a super belated thank you to the Hipnotics for your amazing performance at our wedding on 12 February 2010 at The Pines.

You capped off our day with your stellar song set and stunning vocals that had everyone in awe!

It was so much fun seeing all our friends and family having such a great time getting down on the D-floor, you guys were a really big component to making our day so special, fun and memorable.
My fav songs included the Lady Gaga & B52s ones.

Ciao,

Hi David,

I wanted to pay tribute to The Hipnotics for their performance at the
Spotswood College 50th Jubilee dance last Saturday night. They were
superb, playing a great range of music from the 60's, 70's, 80's and
90's. I lost count of the number of people who complimented me on the
band we had chosen for this event. I would recommend The Hipnotics to
anyone looking for a geat dance band.

20 March 2010

Hi David

I was wondering if you could add a review to your website?

Dave and Christina came up to the Hawkes Bay to play at our wedding and I must say they were an absolute highlight to the evening! We booked the band from overseas so had never heard them live - we were really relying on the feedback we'd read from other satisfied customers. We have to say that we certainly weren't disappointed!! Our wedding served as a bit of a family reunion… they gave 100% the whole night and it was never long before more people were back up and dancing. We've had so many guests comment on how fantastic they were and especially how brilliant Christina was at singing Lady Gaga!! If we are ever to put on another big event, we'd definitely be contacting them again!!

Please could you let them how thankful we are for their awesome performance? They were absolutely perfect and played exactly what we (and our guests) wanted to hear!!

Cheers
Jeremy and Jen Ryan

27 MARCH 2010
Hi David

Just a quick note to say thank you for arranging The Hipnotics to play at such short notice. Dave and Christina were a hit, as you predicted. By the end of the night the dance floor was pumping, which was all down to their quality of the singing and song choice. A number of guests also commented on how pleasant Christina and Dave were to talk to and how professional they were, as the rest of us descended into drunken revelry.

Thanks once again,

Cheers

David,

Just wanted to pass on a vote of thanks for helping us along with Venture Wellington. The acts that you provided all performed to the standard required and your guys really made our nights. The Scouting scene is still abuzz with Venture so obviously we made a bit of an impact. Among the many highlights was your band playing for the casino night so well done.

Cheers

A quick note to say THANK YOU for a stunning job last night! According to all the emails we’re getting from happy punters (including, I hasten to add, the GM of the DomPost) last night’s show was the best yet - and I’m well aware of the big part you guys played in that. You both sounded fantastic and were a total pleasure to work with. If you’d like any sort of testimonial for your website, drop me a line and I’d be happy to write you a glowing review!

Hi David
Thank you for recommending the Hipnotics band for our Unisys function. The band was truly outstanding, great music to dance to. Our function was a huge success. I have had so many people tell me how great they were, in fact a few people have asked how they go about booking them.

I personally would like to thank you David for providing such a great service, very professional. The Unisys Social club will definitely be in contact when we plan our next corporate function.

FEEDBACK FROM 2008 INTERGEN XMAS FUNCTION:

Hi There

Our event was a huge success and everyone loved the band. The band had great song choices and I was impressed how they adapted their song choices based on what our staff seemed to enjoy. A number of people commented on what an amazing voice the lead singer had.

We loved them and would definitely hire them again for a function.

Many thanks for all your assistance

FEEDBACK FROM 2008 WEDDING:

You guys were AMAZING!!!!!!!! We had the most wonderful time and we have had really good feedback from a number of guests about the music - both from the perspective of the background music at dinner and the dance music, and the choices. You made the comment to me that you don't often get the chance to play background music and really enjoyed doing so. I would strongly suggest that perhaps this is something you want to promote! We were very happy with that and I was also very grateful that you were all instantly responsive to my request to lower the volume when one song started off a little too loud. I think the they are a top act!

We contacted the one of the references you had on your site and she raved - we can see why. Testimonials are really great, particularly with contact detail - I am happy to provide both. Let me know what you would like for your website.

I would like to express thanks that you played beyond the required contracted time. The die-hards were still going well after midnight and you kept playing - thank you so very much. It is appreciated. We hope you guys had a chance to have a drink or two as well... very talented singer and a real credit to the group, and your guitar skills are amazing! It was also obvious that you guys enjoy yourselves when playing.

We have no hesitation in recommending.

Kindest regards

Chris

Hi David,

Just checking that all has been sorted. Should have given you Peter & Sylvia's phone number right from the start!!
Please pass on our thanks to the band members that played last Saturday - they were great musicians and great people to deal with - including yourself of course!!
We all had a great dance around and probably made absolute fools of ourselves!

We will keep in touch when the next big event comes up.


Kind Regards

Hi David and Christina

Many thanks for making my birthday celebration so memorable – we have received fantastic feedback on the great music you provided for my 50th birthday celebration. It was a great night.


Cheers

Janet & Greg


Here we are safe and sound back home in Taranaki after an exhausting weekend!

The Hipnotics.......well, what can I say, they were everything I had hoped for, and much, much more!
After hearing only one song on the internet, I booked you, then had sleepless nights hoping I had done the right thing, as I am VERY fussy about my music, being a muso myself.

I most certainly did the right thing, but I still had a sleepless night after the party. All I could hear in my head was your great band, and I was buzzing to the max!

Thank you for making Heidi's night such a special one for all of us. And....it was great to see the band having fun with the music too!

I would not hesitate to book this great band again, and I most certainly highly recommend......

Hi David,

Yes, the band was fantastic thankyou! I had an awsome night which was greatly due to their performance and i had lots of good feedback throughout the night regarding the band.

People really enjoyed the way in which they interacted with the crowd
instead of just being a separate group up on stage. The song choices
were great which was a vital part of the night!

Please pass on our thanks to the band for an awsome performance

Regards,

WE LOVED THEM!
They did a fantastic music job for the night of and everyone danced for as long as they could. Our Marketing Director who is the absolute 'doyenne' of Awards Balls (goes to each and every one) was absolutely thrilled with the bands professionalism and music choices.

In fact our ball was voted the best of all, this is out of all Australian States and NZ. Huge plus was the music - so take a bow - you did us proud.




Thank you very much for your top professional approach and not minding all the questions that I fired at you!

If I need to organise a band again - I know where to find the most suitable for the occasion.
