Hip Control is different from any other wedding band in that every aspect of what we deliver from beginning to end is made with so much love to honor and celebrate you and your partner’s love on your big day!! We are a crew of young, professional musicians from different countries who became friends working in the NYC music scene. We simply love playing music together, getting everyone to move their hips, and putting on a great party that will be remembered for years. We play rock, soul, funk, 80s & 90s classics as well as Latin music. We will cater our music to your needs and bring our fresh, powerful sound to the dance floor. This collective is comprised of a piano player, a guitarist, 3 incredible vocalists, a 3-piece horn section, and an excellent rhythm section. We love doing weddings and it shows!
We love to musicalize this moment for you and your family. Imagine the rise and fall of a classical melody, like Canon in D, or something more up-beat like an instrumental version of Signed, Sealed, Delivered. Each couple can choose 4 songs and our artists can customize this musical experience for you so that you feel like it is something out of your favorite movie. Choose from a piano and guitar duo, solo piano, or for strings lovers, a string duo of cello and violin. You can also use our sound system and microphone for any extra special moments, such as exchanging vows.
Before we dance up a storm, we offer our complimentary Jazz & Bossa Cocktail Hour Group. We love to help guests relax, mingle and talk about the beautiful ceremony before they rev up for the party! Our trio of piano, drums and saxophone, will create a smooth, foot-tapping, refined atmosphere with the classic tunes from artists like Ella Fitzgerald, John Coltrane, Gilberto Gil and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Our favorite moment is when we can get everyone on the dance floor to enjoy a variety of music that goes from rock, soul, funk, top 40s, 80s & 90s classics to Latin Music. Our powerhouse 10-piece band will deliver an energetic and flawless performance, and make sure this is a stress free, super fun day for you. We can also shrink to 9, 8 and 7 players, according to your needs and budget, while still keeping our tight sound and vibrant performance.
WHAT COUPLES SAY ABOUT US
Hip Control was incredible - from start to finish, they were a pleasure to work with, and their performance at the wedding was perfect. We choreographed a first dance to a specific song, so we needed them to perform it precisely, and they absolutely nailed it! The music throughout the night captured the energy and tone we were looking for, and got our guests of all ages dancing throughout. Guests still talk to us about the band and how amazing they were, and we get to watch the video of our dance with gratitude that Hip Control helped us out with that. And from first contacting them through the end of the night, they were communicative, clear with their needs, and provided great suggestions. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

The first thing anyone commented on for our wedding was how epic & amazing Hip Control is. The dance floor was full all night long. Solange is super responsive and attendant. I am so happy we went with Hip Control and couldn't recommend them more. They made the party!

I first saw Hip Control through a friend’s wedding and they completely blew my mind, so we decided to hire them for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Their level of musicianship and talent is amazing. Plus, they were so easy and fun to work with. We had a total blast all night, and they played a Carnival Party medley that got everyone crazy on the dance floor! I highly recommend them and hope to bump into them a million times :)

I am so happy that I found Hip Control! As a musician, I was looking for a band with professional players who knew how to play the music I loved. In that regard, Hip Control was a musical experience I’ll never forget. In addition to their beautiful playing and voices, they were easy to work with. Solange (the band’s manager) was flexible and helped me with our musical desires. They made sure that I was getting everything I wanted. What I think sets Hip Control apart from most bands is their energy and passion. They brought this undeniable charisma to my wedding. My guests are still telling me how much they loved the band. I love you guys!
