Never fail to deliver their own style of floor filling, sing-along anthems from start to finish.
They have the ability to tailor make their sets to suit you individual needs.
You will not be disappointed, this band will knock your socks off!
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 Café 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.
TALIA: Vocals, our fantastic vocalist and the best front to the band we could ever wish for. She was born to sing, dance and rock and owns every song we do.
ROBERT: Guitar, Backing Vocals, one of the best players out there. Sometimes you think there are three of him playing. No keyboards needed in our band.
TOM: Drums, our very own rhythm king and relentless groove machine.
DOMINIC: Bass, our foundation and resident bass monster.
Additional keyboardist can be added, although this will increase overall costs.
Can provide a jazz/lounge or acoustic pre-dinner set if required.
Available as a singer/guitarist duo.
Peavey 600 Watts per side PA, 2X15 inch cabs with horns.
T-Bar with 2 lights plus various DJ lights on the floor.
South East based and will travel to these areas: South East, South West, Midlands, North East, North West, Wales.
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 would like to drop a note to you and the rest of the band members to express our gratitude for playing for us on the 9th.
We had a great time and think by the look of the dancefloor at the end everyone else did too!
Glad you enjoyed playing for us. All the best from us both.

As expected, The Hoops are very good, they were very entertaining and lively
The Hoops performed at our wedding in February 2012 and were AMAZING!!!
Everyone (including us) absolutely loved them and the dancefloor was packed all night. I'd love to see them perform again!
The Hoops were brilliant at my sisters wedding please pass on my thanks.I have used them several times at my venue (The Junction in Oxford) and suggested my sister book them for her wedding.We were not disapointed. They did a great job and everyone had a wonderful time.In many ways they made the wedding party.

Hi - We are interested in booking the band The Hoops for our wedding reception on Saturday 29th September this year. We saw the band perform live last week (Sat 11th September) at the wedding reception for our friends Charles and Emma in Harrogate. Please could you let me know how i go about getting a quote and seeing if the band are available
I like the Hoops so much that I have booked them for my sisters wedding (and we have bands playing every week so I have lots of acts to choose from.)
-Pete (Manager of The Junction in Oxford)
Thanks again...The Hoops were brilliant at the weekend
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
-Rich and Louise
Roadhouse....last night...you were brill..i was at the front with the red hair dancing and now my head hurts!
We booked the hoops for our wedding in September and they we absolutely amazing! Everybody commented on how good they were and the dancefloor was packed the whole night! Really friendly and professional from time of booking right through to their encore!
-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
Saw you play at the Roadhouse and I am your biggest fan...cant wait for the next gig.
Guys - I cant thank you enough for such an incredible night on Friday - you were awesome!!
Both Loui and I had a fantastic time and everyone we spoke to thought you were great. It really makes a huge difference having a live band, and for us you guys helped to make our wedding a day that we will remember for ever.
If you have a website that we can leave a comment on for you then please let us know and w'll write up a review for you. We'll definitely be recommending you to friends!
Hope you all had a great night too
-Rich and Loui
Thank you so much guys! I hope you realise you were an absolute smash, people have been telling us all day how good the band was. We just tell them we already knew that :) But you were great, excellent vibe, friendly with the guests, awesome sound, as good as we could have hoped for. We're especially grateful to Rob for his patience and thoroughness in getting the mix just right for our first dance, and to you all for dynamite performances of Eloise and Just Like Heaven, I really enjoyed dancing like a lunatic with Mary to Eloise even if I nearly killed myself. A great version of a great song and one of my highlights of the night. Unfortunately we actually missed your performance of Rihannica because we were saying goodbye to people, but we heard it was brilliant!
We had a wonderful day and you topped it off wonderfully, we're really grateful.
Guys - thank you so much for helping to make our wedding such an amazing experience! All of our guests agreed that you were definitely the highlight of the entire day. Jumping around to some of our favourite songs was such a great way to end the night. Thank you so so much - We will certainly be recommending you to anyone looking for a band for their wedding. You are an incredibly friendly, energetic and talented group and we wish you lots of success for the future.
Rich and Louis' Wedding 23-09-2011
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to the Hoops who played at our wedding party on Friday 5th August 2011.
They were absolutely amazing and we have had no end of comments from our guests who were all really impressed with the band and the choice of songs. The dance floor was full all night and the party just wouldn’t have been the same without the band, we are so grateful to them.
Ending the night with Green Day “Time of your life” was just brilliant! We particularly loved the Enter Sandman/Only girl in the world mix and seeing Mark’s 85 year old Nan dancing to it was class!
Rachel & Mark
"Firstly sorry for the snail like response, we went away to Bristol early Saturday morning and then back to work Monday and just been very busy.
We thought you guys were just fantastic.......your singers voice is also brilliant and your overall energy created such a great party atmosphere. We have had so many compliments from our members of staff, saying what a great night it was and that the band were the icing on the cake, we would definitely use you guys again in the future.
As you can see from the email above the hoops gave us a really good night and I would be happy to recommend them.
Best wishes & thanks again."

I just wanted to let you know how fantastic The Hoops were at our wedding on the 21st of May. They were so professional and easy to work with. They turned up at the venue and were set up in the blink of an eye. The dance floor was full all night and when the security guards cut the night a little short everyone was still asking for more. An amazing band with a brilliant repertoire that was loved by all my guests as much as it was by me. A really tight and great sounding band, I would recommend them to absolutely anyone. Wonderful.

Wedding 28th May 2011
have just got back from honeymoon and wanted to write and say how fantastic the band were. So many people said how good you were (just like we did when we heard you at Harry Sharpe's wedding!) and you could tell everyone loved dancing to the band as they only got drinks when the ipod was on! James and I also noticed the songs we'd requested so thank you for that as well. The first dance song was perfect as well.
Can't thank you enough - I think having a great band always makes a wedding great. Glad you had a good time.
Claire & James
Hi Robert and all at The Hoops
Thank you so much for last night. You guys were fantastic and really made our night. Everyone (including the very few sober people) loved you.
I will email LMMUK to tell them how great you are. I am so glad we found you, for us you were the perfect choice. Hope you had fun too?
Emma and Simon
Wedding gig - Harry and Rachel Sharpe: "Rachel and I had a fantastic time and we have received so many compliments about you from everyone that came. It has been brilliant to hear how so many partied on after we left and the stories of the crowd chanting for "one more song" long after your time was up are becoming legendary. You made the whole thing incredibly easy and we just hope you had a good time on the night as well."
Wedding gig - Caroline Dave: "They are a very reliable and talented band who have a huge range of songs to get your party going. I asked them 2 weeks before if they could play a song for me and they learnt it and performed it perfectly. I cannot recommend them highly enough and don't think you would regret hiring them for your weddin
