Testimonials

I booked The Hippy Hippy Shakes for my wedding. They were super nice guys, really professional to deal with. They appealed to ALL generations of our wedding guests, and really looked the part. They also put on an exciting live show – I particularly enjoyed the guitarist playing the guitar behind his head! My friend’s little boy went home wanting to be a rock star. Can’t recommend enough!Rachel (Bride)

Thank you for playing an amazing set all evening. We loved having the live music and the dance floor was the place to be. We loved rock around the clock as our first dance and it gave Olly an excellent chance to show off his moves. So many people have commented about how excellent The Hippy Hippy Shakes were!!Jen & Olly (Bride and Groom)

We have booked The Hippy Hippy Shakes for many dates throughout this year and have booked for all of next year also, as these guys go down extremely well in our venue. The band are extremely reliable, well presented and always professional and to date they have never let us down not just in honouring their bookings but also in providing a great performance.. Their performances provide something genuinely different from many other bands out there. I would definitely recommend them.Crown Hotel Chertsey (Youngs)
