‘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

 

 

“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 performer the lead singer (Christina) 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”.
