Verified profile
A popular, energetic wedding and events band with a vibrant repertoire that is guaranteed to fill the dance floor!

Your event is unique, so your band should be too. HATHRs specialise in performances full of energy and enthusiasm. Our personality as a band creates an amazing atmosphere that gets people on the dance floor and makes every performance totally unforgettable and exclusively yours! We pride ourselves on our ability to shift through everything from motown and soul to dance, indie and pop effortlessly; keeping audiences of all ages on their toes. 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 and every tune keeps people moving. We’re also not afraid to give tracks a bit of a shake up! While we would never go ahead and re-write the classics or the modern greats, we are more than ready to put a new spin on a track. 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 and our performances are always geared towards getting people on the dance floor, singing their heart out, partying and having the time of their lives! 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 as part of our package. Also included in this is the option of DJ music before, during and after our sets. When you book with us you will get a professional group that is dedicated to ensuring your booking experience is as easy as possible, while also being on hand to help with any queries or requests you may have. We have a wealth of collective experience in music and performing and are equipped with high quality, professional grade instruments, sound equipment, lighting and more, all of which really help bring the party to life. We are also extremely flexible when it comes to the specific requirements of your event. SUMMARY - Covers from a wide-range of genres and eras - Unique and energetic performances full of personality - Ability to perform first dance/requested songs as part of package - DJ option flexible around timings of event - Superb sound and lighting set-up that brings the party to life - Professional group that make booking and communication easy and stress-free

Customer questions

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

We strive to mainly quote for events that the entire band is available for. However, we will bring in top-quality, professional and pre-rehearsed 'dep' musicians in the event that one of us is not available. This is very rare, however if this does occur we will ensure that you are fully aware and that our performances are just as stellar as always.

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 disco 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?

Our experience as a group means that we can craft a set list that is guaranteed to get everyone on the dance floor, but we are more than happy to talk music with you! We have developed a very good ability to pick just the right tunes for each event we play and 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; Marriott Hotel & Resort, Forest of Arden; The Mill Barns, Alveley, Owen House Wedding Barn, Mobberly, Cheshire; Hyde House Wedding Barn, Cheltenham; Aston Wood Golf & Country Club, Walsall

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, funk...etc! 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 live clip of us at the event playing Johnny B Goode on our profile page.

After seeing the band at a venue in Birmingham, we knew we wanted them for our big day. From the minute we made the booking they were so accommodating and helpful with our music choices and they even worked to create a mash up of two songs for our first dance. We had an acoustic set for welcome drinks which created a fabulous atmosphere in the sunshine. Our dance floor for the evening reception was packed from start to finish! All of our guests said afterwards how great the band were! They played a brilliant choice of songs, pleasing all of our guests, from classics to modern pop and indie. We couldn’t recommend them enough! We are already planning a night out to see them again soon! Thank you so much for making our day so perfect!

I booked this band for a Corporate Summer Party and they were so good that I booked them again the following year! I have never seen so many people get up and dance at one of our Summer Parties.
