Hip Service is unrivaled in the entertainment industry with its unique variety of crowd pleasing, from-the-soul dance music from the '60's through the '90's. The (up to) 16 piece group, made up of the region’s top performers, features a screaming four piece horn section, rock solid funky rhythm section, four outstanding lead vocalists, and two electrifying dancers. Since their inception in 1996 the band has taken Northern California by storm. In addition to headlining hundreds of club dates to capacity crowds, Hip Service has become the band of choice at outdoor festivals and fairs, conventions and corporate parties, fund raisers, concerts, nightclubs, and private events of all types.
It's the music that makes you get up and shake your hips. Whether it is classic Soul or Rhythm & Blues, sounds of Motown, classic rock, or today’s funk, this is the essential music for any dance party! SAMMIE (Sacramento Area Music Awards) nominated in 1999 and 2000 for “best R&B/Funk band," Hip Service captivates audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Playing cover tunes or their own originals, the band's sound is unmistakably Hip Service. Hip Service’s appeal has proven to be universal. Their unique sound and visually exciting stage show continues to attract an ever growing and loyal audience (mailing list is over 2,000 and web site hits exceed 10,000), including Sacramento’s top radio stations like Magic 101, Megahits 104.3 and Mix 96. The group’s sell-out Millennium New Years Eve 2000 event was a joint venture with DoubleTree Hotels and Z Media Broadcast Incorporated. The group is currently working on their first release of both original music and cover tunes in live performance.
Professional public relations assistance, state of the art sound and lighting systems, and expert technical crew are all part of the Hip Service package. Their attention to performance details and close interaction with the audience makes every Hip Service show a memorable event. This group's dance-'til-you-drop performances and overall desire to please their clients have made Hip Service "The-Band-In-Demand!" from the Bay Area to Lake Tahoe. Great music, dynamic choreography, endless fun and enthusiasm, and true professionalism make Hip Service a very hip pick.
