Event: Corporate

5/5

This band is fantastic. They had us all up dancing in less than 60 seconds. Their lead singer has an amazing voice and when he sang Valerie we were all amazed and insisted that he sing it again later. Stephen Tompkinson, our lead actor, praised me all night for booking the band. In fact I got hugs all night long for making our wrap party extra special with The Hitsters. This band is really outstanding, all in total harmony with each other. What makes them so good is the size of the band with the brass section and the brilliant drummer. I can't wait for the next end of series party, they really did make my last one the best.

    FAQs

    What events are you experienced at doing?
    The Hitsters have a vast experience of performing at Weddings, Birthday parties, Anniversary celebrations, Summer balls and corporate functions, there is very little we haven't done. This year The Hitsters have done many functions in venues such as stately homes, marquees in country estates, Jazz clubs such as the Hideaway, prestigious London venues such as the Royal Navy college in Greenwich and functions at the Churchill war rooms to name just a few, no matter the venue or event we can easily cover it.

    Do you supply PA and lights?
    The band supply PA and Lights for venues with up to 500 guests as standard and we have our own soundman that we can use for larger venues, we can arrange through our crew a larger PA or supply you with a technical rider if you’d rather source this yourself.

    Does the band come with a soundman?
    The soundman is optional, for larger venues or unusual venues we would recommend this option.

    How long does it take you to set up?
    It will normally take between 60 to 90 minutes to set up and sound check. As an 8 piece band it is very important to get balances and mixes correct and to ensure a crystal clear sound for every event.

    How much space do you need to perform?
    7m x 3m as standard.

    Do you always use the same band members?
    Yes as standard, The Hitsters will use the same band at 99% of our gigs, on the odd occasion such as illness on the day, we may need to swap members, on the occasions we have had to do this, we have used the highest calibre musicians such as those from the Jools Holland band for example and we always only members who have played with us before.

    Can we pick the set?
    We always share our song list with our clients, we recommend you highlight your favorite songs and leave the rest to us, normally around 10. The Hitsters are a vastly experienced group of musicians, we have done hundreds of events and have an experience and knowledge of tailoring our sets to a specific occasion, and it is this knowledge that allows us to pick you a set list that can please all your guests.

    Can you play music in between sets?
    Though we do not provide a DJ as such, we often play mp3 music during our breaks, this can either be provided by yourself or us. If provided by us we will play a mixture of party music from several decades and genres.

    What events do you do?
    The Hitsters can cover any type of function, ranging from weddings and birthday parties to corporate events. This year The Hitsters have done many functions in venues such as stately homes, marquees in country estates, Jazz clubs such as the Hideaway, prestigious London venues such as the Royal Navy college in Greenwich and functions at the Churchill war rooms to name just a few, no matter the venue or event we can easily cover it.
