bands in Chicago. For more than a decade, dozens of well-known and highly-respected charities, corporations and civic organizations have trusted The Hat Guys to deliver top-tier musical entertainment at their most important events.

Infinite Versatility – Given the
broad range of our music, we are an ideal choice for any event, whether it is formal, semi-formal or casual.
We have an expansive repertoire of music, covering six decades, that will keep all of
your guests dancing throughout the evening. All of the photos of packed dance floors and irrepressible smiles in our
Special Events Photo Gallery vividly illustrate how we consistently deliver the highest quality of entertainment that will get guests of all ages on the dance floor to celebrate your wedding.
Infectious Energy – We have been playing together for more than a decade and we've been
in high demand at a variety of events, because people appreciate the chemistry and energy behind our music.
We're an active performing band that plays together regularly, in
a wide variety of contexts, which has made us more cohesive and connected than a typical orchestra comprised of "jobber" musicians pieced together for a performance.
Our experience playing together has produced a tight groove and boundless live energy, which is exactly what a festive occasion demands and deserves.
100% Authentic – We play LIVE
music, as it was intended to be played: LIVE, real and in the
moment. We don't sample voices or musical parts or play to backing tracks.
The Hat Guys have that live feel that you
love about seeing your favorite original band play, that feeling
of being connected to the band and everyone at the event. It is
an energetic and truly musical experience that is vastly superior to
DJs or the re-hashed "cruise ship karaoke" bands that sing and play
along to pre-produced tracks.
Full Service – Some party hosts
like to have live music during dinner and/or before the band
performance or dancing begins. Upon request, we can provide
instrumental soloists or a full band jazz instrumental set
during this timeframe. In addition, we provide DJ and Emcee
services throughout the event. We work with our hosts to create
a play list to meet their needs and to suit the occasion.
Solid Value – The Hat Guys combine an unparalleled live music experience with a reasonable price.
We are all working professionals outside of the band and we are able to be extremely competitive in our
pricing to help you get the most entertainment value for your dollar.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information and pricing. Thank you!
