    Top reasons you’ll love Hoi Polloi:

    • We book direct. No agency fees!

    • We have much lower overhead than most bands. We do our own sound, perform our own market- ing, and set up our own equipment.

    • We play out a lot! So, rather than participate in expensive wedding showcases, we invite you to a real-world show to see us in action.

    • And, umm… oh yes: We’re FUN!

    Jersey’s Own Hoi Polloi has been entertaining since 1991, at weddings, private parties, and clubs all up & down the east coast.

    Along the way, Hoi Polloi learned a few things. But most of all, we love to share the joy of live music.

    In the past few years, Hoi Polloi has played scores of weddings – some very formal, some extremely casual (one was even in pajamas!), but all of them have one thing in common: People have A REALLY GOOD TIME! If you’ve seen a Hoi Polloi show recently, you know there’s a variety of music that represents nearly every genre and every decade— from the Fifties to today’s top hits. Hoi Polloi creates an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere to help your guests also feel relaxed.

    Hoi Polloi’s Goal: To make your wedding reception

    fun for the entire family – from the ring bearer to the grandparents!

    Hoi Polloi delivers a memorable time for you and your guests

    at a price that will work within your budget.

    The band is available in several configurations, each at a price that’s right for you. Here’s a list of our entertainment packages: • PACAKGE 1: “DEVINE ON A DIME”

    Hoi Polloi plays your wedding in a 4-piece format. Gui- tar, Bass, Drums, and Keys will have everyone up and dancing at a price that is sure to please.

    • PACKAGE 2: “THE MOTHER-IN-LAW’s DELIGHT” Hoi Polloi adds our lovely and talented female vocalist (who plays flute and sax too!) to create a 5-piece ensem- ble covering romantic and rockin’ hits that span the de- cades. Slow or upbeat, the guests are always on their feet.

    • PACKAGE 3: “MATRIMONY MIX-A-LOT” If the bride wants a DJ and the groom wants a band, why choose? We can bring along a great DJ at a great price. And everyone is happy!

    • PACKAGE 4: “HONEYMOON HORNS” If you really want to go for the gusto, Hoi Polloi offers a horn section to join the band for your big day.

    Our entertainment counselors* are standing by to help you cre- ate the perfect environment for your family and friends.

    Don’t forget! Besides your reception, your wedding ceremony and cocktail hour also benefit from live music! Hoi Polloi offers a variety of music choices to add that special touch, and create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere to see you down the aisle.

    Here’s answers to some frequently asked questions:

    • How far in advance do we book? It all depends on our availability, but we book anywhere from 2 months to two years out. If you have a hall booked, give us a call. Ask about our no-fee “hold the date” option while you’re making an entertainment decision for your special day.

    • How far do we travel? Though we’re based in North- ern New Jersey, Hoi Polloi has played up and down the east- ern seaboard, and as far west as Texas.

    *No one in the band actually has the title of “entertainment counselor.” That would be silly. But we’ll be happy to work with you.
