ABOUT ME

A popular, energetic wedding and events band with a vibrant repertoire that is guaranteed to fill the dance floor!

Your event is unique, so your band should be too.

HATHRs specialise in performances full of energy and enthusiasm. Our personality as a band creates an amazing atmosphere that gets people on the dance floor and makes every performance totally unforgettable and exclusively yours!

We pride ourselves on our ability to shift through everything from motown and soul to dance, indie and pop effortlessly; keeping audiences of all ages on their toes.

We never just do the obvious. Sure, we’ve got plenty of the established cover tracks in our back pocket, but we also like to find the hidden gems; those songs that soundtrack a night out or a festival weekend, the kind of songs that when they come on at a party everyone screams “Tune!!!” but you just don’t hear other cover bands, or even DJ’s, playing them. Well we do!

But don’t think for a moment that we are sacrificing quality for our broad variety as a group. We are meticulous in our preparation, making sure each and every tune keeps people moving. We’re also not afraid to give tracks a bit of a shake up! While we would never go ahead and re-write the classics or the modern greats, we are more than ready to put a new spin on a track. After all, that’s why you want a band over a DJ, right? We can promise you that no one plays our songs the way we do and our performances are always geared towards getting people on the dance floor, singing their heart out, partying and having the time of their lives!

We are more than happy to take song requests; in fact we love learning new tunes, no matter how obscure! If you have any favorites that you want to hear on the day we will do everything in our power to bring them to life! Of course it goes without saying that we are always honoured and thrilled to play a couples’ first dance live, so if you want that we will make it happen! Want to know the best part? We offer all of this as part of our package. Also included in this is the option of DJ music before, during and after our sets.

When you book with us you will get a professional group that is dedicated to ensuring your booking experience is as easy as possible, while also being on hand to help with any queries or requests you may have. We have a wealth of collective experience in music and performing and are equipped with high quality, professional grade instruments, sound equipment, lighting and more, all of which really help bring the party to life. We are also extremely flexible when it comes to the specific requirements of your event.

Booked Holly & The Hotrods for a Corporate Event

I booked this band for a Corporate Summer Party and they were so good that I booked them again the following year!

I have never seen so many people get up and dance at one of our Summer Parties.

Booked Holly & The Hotrods for a Wedding

After seeing the band at a venue in Birmingham, we knew we wanted them for our big day.

From the minute we made the booking they were so accommodating and helpful with our music choices and they even worked to create a mash up of two songs for our first dance. We had an acoustic set for welcome drinks which created a fabulous atmosphere in the sunshine.

Our dance floor for the evening reception was packed from start to finish! All of our guests said afterwards how great the band were! They played a brilliant choice of songs, pleasing all of our guests, from classics to modern pop and indie. We couldn’t recommend them enough! We are already planning a night out to see them again soon!

Thank you so much for making our day so perfect!

This band made our night so memorable! We booked them for our wedding and they absolutely smashed it.

Everyone loved their sets and so many guests commented on how much they enjoyed the songs, interaction and fun the band provided. They kept the dance floor full until the end.

These guys made our evening.

Booked Holly & The Hotrods for a Birthday Party

I booked Holly & The Heartbreaks for my wife's surprise 60th Birthday. I had never booked a band before, but they made the whole build up completely stress free and communicating with them was so easy.

On the night they were fantastic and completely blew me and the other guests away with two stunning performances. From the start until the end, the whole place was on the dance floor! The band knew exactly where to set themselves up and played brilliantly. My only regret was they finished just after midnight, as we would have still been going now!

If you are looking for a band that will make the night a little more special look no further. I don't really do recommendations but on this occasion they deserve it; brilliant absolutely brilliant! Thank you for creating such a memorable night for my wife's birthday.

From our initial meeting with Dave we knew that Holly & the Hotrods were the perfect choice for our wedding. We could already tell that their repertoire was perfect for the type of atmosphere we wanted, but we were overjoyed when they agreed to learn our first dance and a number of other requests! Not only did the first dance song sound superb, it was tailored to us for our first dance which was amazing. They went above and beyond, sending recordings through for us to practice to and were more than happy to involve us throughout. On the evening they were amazing and so many of our guests commented on how brilliant their set list was. Holly has an amazing voice and kept everyone dancing for the night. We will definitely be on the look out to see them again and would recommend them for any occasion!

Holly & the Hotrods are hands down one of the best bands out there, they absolutely made the night at our wedding. I was having a bit of a wedding band crisis when I saw them play at The Royal in Sutton Coldfield when I was on a hen do. I hadn’t had too many proseccos when I saw them play, so I knew they were the real deal!

Their repertoire is incredible and so eclectic, with everything from James Brown to Blink 182, they played banger after banger and the dancefloor was packed all night. It was the most incredible atmosphere, they even gave us an extra song at the end of their encore as the party didn’t show any signs of stopping. They didn’t judge my questionable DJ set choices and are total pros at putting together sets that keep everyone dancing!

As an organisation freak, they were amazing on the admin side of things, always quick to reply to emails and helped me to feel a little bit less stressed. If you not sure which band to choose for your big day, I would recommend Holly & the Hotrods 100%! I’m currently trying to think of other events I can book them for!

Quite simply – Holly & The Hotrods made our wedding reception incredible!

When planning our wedding we initially weren’t going to have a band, simply a local DJ. However, I am so glad we changed our mind! We first saw HATHRs at The World Bar in Resorts World and they totally blew us away. They got almost everyone up on the dancefloor and as soon as they played Moloko I was sold! We booked them the very next day. They were even able to offer a DJ set for us too which worked so well!

We loved their repertoire and when we requested a few of our favourite songs they practiced them at once and gave us the green light. These songs (including The Cranberries and Arctic Monkeys) went down an absolute storm and the dancefloor was packed out all night long!

From start to finish they were just brilliant. They arrived on time, set up quickly and smoothly and even let my bridesmaids play backing singers for a little while! Their chemistry as a band is clear for all to see and we had so many comments from guests who just loved the atmosphere they gave our wedding party.

So, if you’re getting hitched… THIS IS THE WEDDING BAND YOU NEED!
