Purrfect Events ...

     ... these are just some of our favourite partners ...

Skyfall - Bond premiere

The Hipcats were asked to provide a cool lounge duo at the Skyfall premiere.  The guests were treated to canapés and cocktails as the film finished whilst The Hipcats provided some suitably smooth jazz on a stage amongst the roulette tables.

Lead singer, Nick, on the red carpet.

Accolade Wines & the Travel Retail Consortium

Accolade Wines were organising this year's Travel Retail Consortium event and decided to book The Hipcats for their New Orleans themed weekend at the Bath Spa Hotel.  The Hipcats organised an instrumental trio for drinks on the Friday evening and then a six-piece for the big dinner event on the Saturday night.  

The band was a truly stellar line-up which included a horn section used by the likes of Scissor Sisters and Noel Gallagher.

As a surprise for the guests the band organised a classic New Orleans funeral march (!!) through the drinks reception which led them into the main hall with the music turning into the classic 'When the saints go marching in'

 

Pret a Manger

Nick, lead singer of the The Hipcats, was asked to put together a completely acoustic jazz band for a launch of a new coffee shop in Woking.  He both sings and plays guitar so put together a mainly instrumental trio and entertained the crowds outside the shop the weekend before it opened whilst Pret gave away free coffee and cookies - this was so successful that The Hipcats were back on the opening weekend.  The band kept it fresh by having guitar, double bass and saxophone one weekend and then having a trumpet the second weekend.

Pret were so pleased that The Hipcats were invited to do the same in Horsham - on the first weekend they played in the shop window and when it opened on the second weekend they kept the crowds entertained outside.

 

The American Museum

The American Museum's 50th lunchtime gala was attended by a wide range of guests including Winston Churchill's daughter Lady Soames, Angela Ahrendts the CEO of Burberry and Duran Duran's John Taylor. The Hipcats played music before and after lunch, put on some suitable MP3 music while guests were eating and then our PA was used for the speeches (which included a personal message read out on behalf of Barack Obama).

 

Harvey Nichols

Harvey Nichols have used The Hipcats lounge duo of vocals and piano for two years now on their jazz Sundays.  A mix of laid-back jazz, swing and latin is perfect for the diners and helps add to the sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere.
