Wedding Band with a Post Modern Jukebox Flair!
Want something a little different for your wedding reception? Then look no further! The Hip Van Winkles is a 9 piece (expandable to 15 pieces and beyond) band of hip, funky musicians that know how to entertain! Instrumentation includes guitar, bass, drums, piano, horns, strings, singers and even an accordion may make an appearance. This group is heavily influenced by the likes of Post Modern Jukebox and Pink Martini performing a wide range of live music that will appeal to everyone at your reception! Sounds expensive, right? WRONG! This group is competitively priced to compete with the other local weddings bands without offering the "same ol" song and dance!

I never do reviews but this band is worth stepping out! We were looking for a live band that wasn't your typical top 40 music covers. We wanted something different, music that guests could dance to and something noteworthy and memorable. After my fiancé (now husband!) listened to band after band, he hit on the Hip Van Winkles...we both listened to one song and knew they were it! The music and song arrangements have such a unique style and all of the members are talented musicians. Having never hired a band before, Buffi made it so easy to create a great flow of show and ensure each stage of the reception had the right tone and tempo. Almost every guest was out on the dance floor at least once and the dance crowd remained in motion the entire night. Our main wish for our wedding was to have amazing music, great food and a wonderful time with family and friends. The Hip Van Winkles flawlessly executed and we had the reception we always hoped for. If you want a band that is incredibly talented, well organized, unique, personable, and memorable, you can't go wrong with this group. Oh and we highly recommend a receiving line before you get to the reception so you can enjoy the music yourself!!
