ABOUT US

Holly & The Hotrods are a vibrant four-piece armed with a truly unique sound an eclectic repertoire full of different genres. Whether it’s 60s/70s classics, brand new chart-toppers, dance floor-fillers or indie anthems; HATHRs have it covered! Never predictable, always memorable.

HATHRs have a very distinctive sound that is sure to get people on their feet. Our four members bring their considerable individual talents together to produce performances guaranteed to create unforgettable memories. We pride ourselves on our unique ability to shift from genre to genre effortlessly; keeping audiences of all ages on their toes; all the while sweeping them off their feet with our verve and energy.

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 tune works in harmony with the rest. We’re also not afraid to give tracks a bit of a shake up! While we would never go ahead and re-write ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’, we are more than ready to put a new spin on a classic. 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.

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 at your event, we'll 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 at no extra cost.

Holly, Dave, Paul and Sam have a wealth of collective experience in music and performing. We are equipped with high quality, professional grade instruments and sound equipment, all of which are extendable, making us extremely flexible when it comes to the specific requirements of your event.

Booked Holly & The Hotrods for a Wedding
5.0   Verified review

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!
