Verified profile
A vibrant four-piece armed with a truly unique sound an eclectic repertoire full of different genres. Never predictable, always memorable.

We are Holly & The Hotrods, a female-fronted, four-piece covers band based in the West Midlands. Whether it’s 60s/70s classics, brand new chart-toppers, dance floor-fillers or indie anthems; HATHRs have it covered! Never predictable, always memorable. HATHRs have a very distinctive sound that is sure to get people on their feet. Our four members bring their considerable individual talents together to produce performances guaranteed to create unforgettable memories. We pride ourselves on our unique ability to shift from genre to genre effortlessly; keeping audiences of all ages on their toes; all the while sweeping them off their feet with our verve and energy. We never just do the obvious. Sure, we’ve got plenty of the established cover tracks in our back pocket, but we also like to find the hidden gems; those songs that soundtrack a night out or a festival weekend, the kind of songs that when they come on at a party everyone screams “Tune!!!” but you just don’t hear other cover bands, or even DJ’s, playing them. Well we do! But don’t think for a moment that we are sacrificing quality for our broad variety as a group. We are meticulous in our preparation, making sure each tune works in harmony with the rest. We’re also not afraid to give tracks a bit of a shake up! While we would never go ahead and re-write ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’, we are more than ready to put a new spin on a classic. After all, that’s why you want a band over a DJ, right? We can promise you that no one plays our songs the way we do. We are more than happy to take song requests; in fact we love learning new tunes, no matter how obscure! If you have any favorites that you want to hear on the day we will do everything in our power to bring them to life! Of course it goes without saying that we are always honoured and thrilled to play a couples’ first dance live, so if you want that we will make it happen! Want to know the best part? We offer all of this at no extra cost. The band have a wealth of collective experience in music and performing. The group are equipped with high quality, professional grade instruments, sound equipment, lighting and more, all of which are extendable, making them extremely flexible when it comes to the specific requirements of your event.

Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes; we will only quote for events that the entire band is available for. The chemistry and energy between our band members is all part of the package, so the four musicians that you see in our videos and pictures are the ones that perform at all of the events that we are booked for.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up consists of: vocals/keys, guitar/backing vocals (BVs), bass/BVs, drums/BVs. We currently do not use extra members as an extension to our line-up. However, if you want to have something extra that involves us using smaller line-up (e.g. an acoustic set) then we will be more than happy to provide that service and can offer a bespoke quote for it.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Timing changes are not a problem for us. We are well aware that events don't often run completely smoothly (the preparation or the event itself) so we always ensure that your communications with us are as stress free as possible. If the timings for your event do change just let us know and we will work around them.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes, we can provide a fully flexible DJ service that can be tailored around the specific timings of your event. This service comes as part of our package and so is included in our quote to you at no extra cost. If you want the final DJ set to extend beyond our regular timings, we will gladly discuss those details further and even arrange a bespoke offer.

How much time do you need to set up?

We are flexible in terms of set-up times and can have our performance area assembled in 1 - 1.5 hours. 2 hours is ideal for us, however, we are perfectly equipped to adapt to the requirements of the event. We can start playing music as soon as our PA is ready to get the good vibes going before our live set!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We are more than happy to talk music with you! Our experience as a group means that we can craft a set list that is guaranteed to get everyone on the dance floor, but you are free to get as involved as you like. You can plan it meticulously, give us a rough idea or leave it entirely to us. What we can promise is that our performance will be memorable!

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes, all of our equipment is included in our quote. We are equipped with high quality, professional grade instruments, sound equipment, lighting and more, all of which are extendable, making us extremely flexible when it comes to the specific requirements of your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are more than happy to take song requests; in fact we love learning new tunes! If you have any favorites that you want to hear at your event, we'll do everything we can to bring them to life. We are always honoured and thrilled to play a couples’ first dance live, so if you want this we will make it happen. We can do all of this for you at no extra cost.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We've been complimented by so many clients on how well we create a party atmosphere from the first song to the last and that we manage to get everyone dancing (even the ones who "don't dance"!). They are also hugely impressed by the quality of our musicianship and the energy between our band members, along with how good our song selection is!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have played at plenty of brilliant venues, including: Vox Conference Centre, Resorts World, NEC, Birmingham; The Belfry Hotel & Resort, Wishaw; The Mill Barns, Alveley, Owen House Wedding Barn, Mobberly, Cheshire; Hyde House Wedding Barn, Cheltenham; Aston Wood Golf Club, Walsall; Pipe Hayes Golf Club, Sutton Coldfield

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We cover songs from lots of eras and genres, which is what makes our repertoire so eclectic! Our distinctive sound is vibrant and full of energy. We play pop, indie, house, garage, r'n'b, soul, motown, rock or funk. Anything goes: Moloko; The Killers; Chuck Berry; David Bowie; Taylor Swift; James Brown; Ed Sheeran; The Jam... and all sorts in between!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

We had the privilege to perform at Resorts World Birmingham's awards evening in the fantastic Vox Conference Center. We had a lot of fun performing for them and the crowd were great! You can see a clip of us at the event playing Johnny B Goode on our profile page.

I booked Holly & The Heartbreaks for my wife's surprise 60th Birthday. I had never booked a band before, but they made the whole build up completely stress free and communicating with them was so easy. On the night they were fantastic and completely blew me and the other guests away with two stunning performances. From the start until the end, the whole place was on the dance floor! The band knew exactly where to set themselves up and played brilliantly. My only regret was they finished just after midnight, as we would have still been going now! If you are looking for a band that will make the night a little more special look no further. I don't really do recommendations but on this occasion they deserve it; brilliant absolutely brilliant! Thank you for creating such a memorable night for my wife's birthday.

From our initial meeting with the band we knew that Holly & the Hotrods were the perfect choice for our wedding! We could already tell that their repertoire was perfect for the type of atmosphere we wanted, but we were overjoyed when they agreed to learn our first dance and a number of other requests! Not only did the first dance song sound superb, it was tailored to us for our first dance which was amazing. They went above and beyond, sending recordings through for us to practice to and were more than happy to involve us throughout. On the evening they were amazing and so many of our guests commented on how brilliant their set list was. Holly has an amazing voice and kept everyone dancing for the night. We will definitely be on the look out to see them again and would recommend them for any occasion!
