Hip Control

The only band that can flawlessly perform both American and Latin American music

This unique talent collective is comprised of ten band members: a piano player, a guitarist, 3 incredible vocalists, a 3-piece horn section, and an all-star rhythm section. We can also adjust to your needs by playing as a group of seven, eight or nine musicians. But that's not all, we can also go big, all the way: you have the option of adding two extra singers, two extra horns, one percussionist and two to four dancers.

It all depends on what kind of event you are having and how big of a party you want it to be. Each client is very important to us and we are happy to work out all the details so that you have a high quality, super fun, stress-free experience.  We are here to help you in every possible way; from putting together the best song list that suits your taste, to MC'ing throughout the event. We also offer you the possibility of choosing up to 3 special requests such as your favorite songs, the first dance, or anything you particularly like that we'll learn and play for you. Our role is to make you happy!

  • Piano Solo Set by Akie Bermiss: starring our incredible male vocalist Akie, whose talents on both vocals and piano will walk you through the 50s, 60s, and 70s; playing Motown, soul-jazz and R&B tunes.
