The Perfect Band for the Celebration of a Lifetime
Congratulations on your Engagement and thank you for considering The Hat Guys to entertain at your reception!
You have a handful of important decisions to make in planning the perfect wedding, including who you can trust to deliver a musical experience that will leave all of your guests raving that your wedding was the most incredible event of the ages. You have taken a huge step in the right direction by finding this page.
The Hat Guys is one of the premiere wedding bands in Chicago. Over the past decade, we have been a part of more than 100 weddings and have shared countless joyous and beautiful moments with newlyweds and their families and friends. These brides and grooms have chosen us because we deliver a non-stop blend of danceable classics from the past six decades which inspires guests of all ages to fill the dance floor from the first note to the last.
The Hat Guys also bring six distinctive attributes that make us ideal for your wedding:
Extensive Experience – Over the past decade, we have performed for more than a hundred
weddings at many of Chicago's premier venues. Brides and grooms have sought us out, notwithstanding that we did not hold ourselves out as a wedding band, after having seen us perform at festivals and clubs. They have told us that they wanted a tight band with infectious energy to get everyone at their wedding dancing. More than a decade later, we are still delivering a relentlessly joyous and appropriately sentimental live music experience, which our prior clients have heralded as the "perfect" addition to their wedding celebration.
Infinite Versatility – Given the
broad range of our music, we are an ideal choice for a wedding.
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
Wedding 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 are well known, through our frequent appearances at festivals, clubs, several high-profile special events and on the WGN Morning News, for our playfulness, interaction, improvisation and energy. We're one of the only bands in Chicago that has been able to succeed in such a diverse array of settings and to have such a strong resume in the wedding arena.
Our clients have consistently told us that they decided we were perfect for their wedding after seeing us live. We're fun. We interact with our audiences. We play awesome danceable music. We're exactly what you want from the musical entertainment at you wedding.
Perfect Collaboration – Over the past decade, we have earned a reputation for delivering extraordinarily well-constructed sets of vibrant, energizing dance music at all of our performances.
We enjoy working with our wedding clients to craft a set list that is perfect for them. We will work with you, and offer as much of our veteran insights as you want, to ensure
that the musical portion of your wedding day is as beautiful (and hassle-free) as you dreamed. If there are songs that you want to hear that are not on our list, please let us know and we'll incorporate them into your soundtrack.
Full Service – You are not just hiring a band in The Hat Guys. In addition to working with you, or your wedding planner, to create a set list and plan the sequence of events, we will act as emcee and DJ throughout the reception. We also introduce the wedding party, keep the events moving according to plan, and make several important announcements throughout the reception.
We provide a state-of-the-art sound system and lighting production, scaled to fit your needs, and we continuously manage that sound throughout the reception with an eye toward keeping the dance floor lively without impinging upon the conversations among guests away from the floor. We can also provide live instrumental Jazz during a cocktail hour or dinner, upon request.
Fair Price – In selecting vendors for your wedding, you will probably hear many of them tell you that you get what you pay for. We believe this is largely true, but we endeavor to offer pricing that fairly reflects the sensational value that we provide. We offer discounts for Fridays and Sundays throughout the year and during our off-season (November through April). When requesting a quote from us, please provide as much detail as you can. If you have a budget limit that is below the range we quote, please tell us and we'll see if we can accommodate that.
