We saw Hoi Polloi perform at a friend's wedding and knew right away that we had to get them for our wedding. They played a great variety of songs that kept all the guests dancing all night long. Jim was great to work with and was very quick to respond and work with us to make sure our wedding turned out the way we pictured it. The band also learned a few songs for us. Wedding guests are still telling us how great the band was at our wedding. They are highly recommended!

My husband and I were so thrilled to have found a band like Hoi Polloi. They were amazing to work with prior to the wedding and very accommodating. They have an extensive playlist of songs to chose from and they even learned a few for our wedding! The dance floor was filled the whole time with all of the guests dancing. Everyone commented on what a great band they are. Hoi Polloi is a must have if you are looking for a band for you wedding!

HOI POLLOI helped immensely to make our wedding such a fun and truly magical evening! We have gotten nothing but rave reviews about the band from all of our guests, our photographers, AND our venue! They kept the party going all night long with great music and fantastic energy--our guests barely sat down! We would be honored and happy to recommend Hoi Polloi to anyone, and everyone!

Jim was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. He responds to emails quickly, and offers great advice & suggestions. Sue did a brilliant job playing piano at our ceremony, and even helped pull off a surprise for the groom! Every member of the band is incredibly professional, personable, musically gifted, and generally fantastic at what they do.

We couldn't be happier with how the evening went and Hoi Polloi was such a huge part of it. They played all the perfect songs at all the perfect moments, and even learned some of our favorites for us! We wish we could go back and do it all over again! Thanks for everything, Hoi Polloi; we hope to have the privilege to see you again soon!

My husband and I have seen Hoi Polloi a few times at the Mohawk House in Sparta, NJ. When it came time to finding a band for our wedding we discussed using them not realizing just how many weddings they have played. Choosing them quickly became the best wedding decision we made! After all, music really sets the tone for the whole entire evening. Jim, our contact, was an absolute pleasure to work with. They are full service, accommodating us with a DJ when the band went on break and music during the cocktail hour and very reasonable with their prices. It was a bold move on our part but my husband and I couldn't agree on music to put together a playlist so we left it entirely up to them, only mentioning artists we did not want to hear. The variety they picked was amazing, they hit every genre at the wedding. People actually came up to us and said we had the best song list they have ever heard at a wedding and we had to admit we had absolutely nothing to do with it, the band deserved all the credit. The dance floor was packed all night, my feet had the blisters to prove it! The raving compliments we have received from guests were overwhelming, a few people did not realize it was a band at first because they sounded SO good. I think it is a true testament to the band when people leave the other wedding at the hotel to come and crash and dance to their music.

Best wedding decision we made! You cannot go wrong with choosing Hoi Polloi as your wedding band! During and after the wedding, so many of our guests raved about how much fun they had at our wedding specifically because they loved the band and our playlist. From the start, Jim A (our main contact with the band) was very helpful and responsive. I had tons of questions during the planning process and every time I reached out to Jim, he got back to me so quickly with a thorough response. The band has a wide range of songs they can play. We loved this and we were able to create a playlist that included oldies, wedding classics, modern songs, and country! They also created a playlist for background music during cocktail hour and set up a speaker for that. We loved being able to hand pick the songs that were played at the wedding. The whole band was professional and super friendly. They played for most of the night, barely taking a break. All this from a band that was also very affordable! We went to another wedding where Hoi Polloi played and my husband and I did not leave the dance floor then or at our own wedding! Their energy is amazing and they truly made our night perfect! You will not regret choosing them and we recommend them to any newly engaged couple.

12 years ago my sister got married and had a band who's name I couldn't spell at the time, but who I would NEVER forget! That's the thing about Hoi Polloi, they make a lasting impression and provide an unforgettable experience. I didn't even consider looking for other bands or pricing for DJs, because I knew that the band set the tone for the night, and there was no better group out there to do that than these guys! Jim was flawless in his organization and preparation over the year of communication and planning. He was the next best thing to a wedding coordinator! Their attention to detail, professional approach, and incredible talents are unmatched by any other group. There was not a moment that the dance floor was empty, or a song you wish they'd "skip," or something they forgot from your "must play" list. They adjusted to the mood of the group and the flow of the evening impeccably. I loved them at my sister's wedding, and I still love them now! My guest have not stopped complimenting me on the great selection, thankfully it was the easiest one I made through the whole planning process!

Hoi Polloi played at our wedding on August 1, 2015, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision to choose them. Jim and the band were absolutely amazing! From start to finish, they had our guests up and dancing, and were just as excited to be there as we were.
Throughout the year while planning our wedding, we were in contact with Jim to make sure everything was perfect for our special night. They were willing to do anything they could to make sure our night was just what we dreamed about. They learned a few new songs for us and played two mash-ups that I had requested. Which turned out incredible! One was a mash-up with my father and the other was a special dance with my two-year-old niece and the children in attendance at the wedding. Both dances turned out just as I imagined and were flawless.
All of our guests, both young and old, raved about how they were the best wedding band they have ever heard! Guests of all ages were up dancing the ENTIRE night! My parents and in-laws keep getting phone calls about how amazing the wedding was, always starting with the band!
We highly recommend them for your wedding, or any event you may need. I know that most people choose a DJ for their wedding, but that is a mistake. Hoi Polloi is just so much better than a DJ and made our night so personal. We love you Hoi Polloi! :)

I don't even know where to begin! If you are looking to have a wedding where all your guests are dancing the entire night...you can not go wrong with Hoi Pollo. I can not even count how many times someone came up to me at the wedding or days after saying how much the loved the band and "I never dance at weddings but I danced the whole night and yours!" Someone even asked me if I had the setlist! Jim Albrecht was so wonderful to work with during the planning phase, I feel like he is a friend of mine! He is very organized and so easy going. He always made time for me to talk on the phone and responded to my emails right away.

I also had Sue from the band perform the ceremony music. She was wonderful and very helpful with song suggestions as I was having a difficult time deciding.

The whole band was just fantastic. So entertaining and fun!!! We all danced the whole night. They were also a great help throughout the night with organizing all the bridal party together for the introductions, etc.

Multiple friends and family told me that our wedding was "the best wedding they have ever been too" I would have to give Hoi Polloi the credit for making the night so fun!!

Thank you!!! -Kristi and Travis

This review is long overdo. This band could not have been more acommadating to our needs. From the very start of the wedding, they had the crowd on its feet and filling the dance floor. We had given them some examples of music we liked, and they just took it from there and were spot on with all their choices. From country, to classic rock, jersey shore band, to 80s dance music they can play it all, and created the perfect atmosphere, exactly what we were looking for. They have an extensive play list and are both high energy and extremely professional. Everyone at the wedding was asking the bands name and where we found them. We would HIGHLY recommend Hoi Polloi to any Bride and Groom.

Recently I was asked to give a reference to the band from my recent wedding, so I'm copying my reply to that person's email here, because it's as to the point as I can be..

Hoi Polloi was the best decision we made for an entire wedding, and that's really not an exaggeration. We had our wedding on October 10th in Hillburn, NY. We had the 6-piece band play the reception and Jim play solo with an acoustic guitar during the cocktail hour. Our wedding had around 205 people all very excited to have a great time, and Hoi Polloi certainly delivered. We had great communication back and forth for a few months leading up to the wedding. Jim responds to emails very quickly and has a terrific attitude about everything, always providing some humor to break the stress of planning the wedding. We asked the band to learn several songs, including our first dance, my dance with my mom, and the entrance songs for the bridal party and my wife and I. All were played so perfectly with the exact amount of energy for each song. The whole wedding went so smoothly we could hardly believe it, from when they took their 1 break to get some food, to announcing the whole wedding party with awesome enthusiasm, to even letting my dad, who had a couple beers in him, get up on stage and sing his favorite Bruce Springsteen song to give him his moment of glory. We had at least 2 dozen people reach out to us and tell us they were the best wedding band they've ever seen, and a quarter of the people that attended barely ate dinner because they were dancing the whole night.

You'd sincerely regret not hiring these guys if you are considering it.
