Act Profile

THE HOOPS

The Hoops are probably the best band on the London covers scene and since their inception have taken the Capital by storm, being in demand by all the top live music venues. Their incredible front girl has been wowing audiences with her impressive and versatile vocals, which allow the band to pull off a huge range of songs that others might avoid.

Guaranteed to deliver floor-filling, sing-along anthems from start to finish, they'll always leave the crowd wanting more. So much more than your average cover band, they'll make each song their own, mixing classic rock and indie anthems with the best new music and throw in some unexpected foot stompers, reworked with a Hoops twist. Always 100% live, no backing tracks, no gimmicks, just pure unadulterated rock and roll!

All band members are professional musicians and have worked with artists, bands and members of bands as diverse as Sir Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Amy Winehouse, The Pretenders, Kula Shaker, Stevie Nicks, Kylie Minogue, La Roux, Seal, Aha, Ian Dury, Wilko Johnson, Kool and the Gang, Meredith Brooks and Del Casher.

The Hoops can turn their hands to a great variety of different genres and styles and always pull it off with great fun and authority. They aim to tailor make their sets to suit clients own personal needs and preferences and can learn specific songs for your special occasion should you so wish.

Anything goes, nothing is sacred, as long as it feels good and makes you wanna dance!

In 2013 The Hoops were chosen to star in a major viral advertising campaign for Benefit Cosmetics in which people who answered a ringing pink telephone were taken for a make over and performed live with the band in the Cafe De Paris. Within days of going online the video had racked up almost 100,000 views (and counting!)

They were also chosen for Haven Holiday parks advert and performed live in the advert and are to be featured in the 2014 brochure.

They can also offer the same level of entertainment as a singer/guitarist duo, acoustic or with playbacks.

The Hoops have an electronic drum kit for venues with noise issues.

The Hoops also have 20 minutes of Horah music sung in Hebrew for Jewish weddings.

Testimonials

Apologies for writing this so late!!! The Hoops performed at our wedding last year and they were amazing from the moment we booked them and of course on the day . They were accommodating and flexible, but most importantly exceeded all expectations and recommendations on the night. Our guests were dancing instantly, and all commented on how good the band were after the wedding. I couldn't recommend the Hoops more thoroughly.

Dear Robert,

We can't thank you all enough for what was a lovely afternoon. Everyone LOVED you all and thought that you were fantastic! The songs that you played were perfect, just what we wanted and we really enjoyed dancing and singing along! We even had an email from a neighbouring family who asked who the band were, as they listened and danced in their gardens for the afternoon and thought you were brilliant!

We would love to have you back to play at St Hilarys one day for sure! I hope also you all enjoyed your Saturday night off!

Best wishes,
Louise

-Becky Hartley


What can I say! The Hoops were absolutely amazing. The highlight of of the day. From the time of booking and even after the wedding the communication was fab. They even let my little boy sing which has made his year! Thanks again so much for everything. You will not be disappointed with The Hoops!

-Amy Whittington


The Hoops came to play at our wedding last weekend and we're so happy the previous band fell through! Music was very important to us for the day and both my wife and I play musical instruments; The Hoops did not disappoint! The vocals and guitar were outstanding and they had everyone on the floor dancing for all three sets.

Thank you once again for making it such a special time, you really were one of the highlights of our day.

The band fitted in seamlessly and were lovely!

-Bev Williams The Production Suite


You were brilliant last night at the Roadhouse and I had an amazing time. Cant wait to see you again. Thanks for the request.

-Ellie


we first saw the hoops at a company function about three years ago and when we decided to get married there was no doubt that we wanted the hoops to play at our reception in may 2014 we were able to contact the band personally to tell them what songs we would prefer they also learnt a number of songs for us that were not on their set list including the song for our first dance. Everyone loved the band which we knew they would and they kept people on the dance floor all night.having talked to the band at the end of the night we discovered they were playing in Newquay,cornwall the next week as we were there on our honeymoon that week we went to see them at the walkabout bar and they totally rocked as usual,if your looking for a band that can cover all aspects of rock you will not be disappointed.
A very big thanks to Robert, amie and the rest of the band.

-dave and lynn richards


I managed to get to see them last Saturday and was really pleased.

-Anthony Feb 2014


The Hoops did not just play at our wedding, they completely smashed it! These guys are amazing!! They had everyone on the dance floor from the first note they played and they continued to have everyone rocking all night. A truly phenomenal band and Talia's voice will absolutely blow your mind! Love, love, love them. The whole process of booking was exceptionally simple and the band were extremely professional throughout. Thanks so much to The Hoops for rocking our wedding! The husband and I are already thinking of any excuse to hire this band again which we would definitely do if the opportunity arose. I cannot recommend this band highly enough. If you're considering hiring The Hoops, then please stop considering it and start booking!

-Lehan Fielding

The Hoops played a friends 30th Birthday Party last Saturday, a great time was had by all.

I've seen them a few times around London last year and they are awesome, really good fun and tons of energy.

This band absolutely MADE our wedding day! fantastic! Our wedding was in February 2012 and our friends are still talking about them and asking us who our band was. at the start we pointed out the tune we wanted for our first dance (Iris by the goo goo dolls) and the hoops practised it and they performed it on the day.....amazing!!!!!! Genuinely cant imagine having had anyone other than the Hoops! BOOK THEM IMMEDIATELY!!!!!

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how much we enjoyed having the Hoops play at our wedding on the 23rd Sept this year. They were absolutely fantastic and all of our guests had a great night with the Hoops being the highlight!! They even went to effort of learning a few extra songs for us and our parents.

A few of our friends have asked for their details so fingers crossed they'll be in contact when they come to arrange bands for their wedding.

Thanks also to you for your help in putting us in touch with them

-Stuart and Antoinette


Just saw The Hoops at Haven Greenacres (1/10/11) and was absolutely blown away. Amazing vocals, ultra tight guitars and the variety of songs was amazing. First time I've ever heard a holiday park crowd demand an encore! Truly awesome and deserving of a much much bigger stage

-mpayne


Saw you play at the Roadhouse and I am your biggest fan...cant wait for the next gig.

-Pete Bestall

Hi Robert and the band

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner but just to say a huge thank you to all of you! We had a fantastic day and you guys topped it off, you were great and we really enjoyed your performance (Chris spent most of the second set jumping around shouting "this is awesome!!"). All of our guests have said that the two things that were really great about the day were the food and the band - thanks so much!

Tony Sykes

Hi Robert and The Hoops

You beat me to the email! I was just about to send you a message to say that we had the most fantastic time and that you and your very talented band were just superb. I don't know how many people have said to me that the music was so so good. I wish you every success in your playing and from the number of people who wanted your details, I am sure you will get more bookings from this and hopefully we will then meet again. Thank you so much for letting us indulge ourselves in the interval - it reminded me that there is no substitute for practicing or at least a rehearsal but HEY it was great fun and no one (but you I suspect) spotted all the dreadful mistakes!!! LOL.

Good luck to you all and thank you once again for making the day very special indeed.

Kind Regards

Tony Sykes
