I genuinely will never get over how amazing The Hit List were when I booked them to play at my best friends hen!! They were the highlight of our weekend; so talented, friendly and fun. Not even the torrential rain could put us off - what was meant to be a garden party turned into a conservatory party but these guys were so flexible and accommodating. They even let the bride feel like a rockstar and got her up to do a solo. Myself and all the hens will be talking about this for years to come. I can’t thank you all enough. Already thinking about what event I can plan next just so I can book you!!

We booked The Hit List for a charity event in June, and from the first song they were absolutely amazing. The band got everyone up dancing and having a great time, and they do a wide range of songs from all decades from the 60s right through to modern chart music. If you’re looking for a function band that will get the party going, then we would highly recommend the Hit List.

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.
