About NJ's Own HOI POLLOI

Jersey's Own Hoi Polloi knows when to be formal and when to let loose! We play live music with lots of experience.

Jersey's Own Hoi Polloi 
(Note...it's pronounced "HOY-puh-LOY") 


The band has brought live music to hundreds of wedding receptions, clubs, and private parties in the New York/New Jersey area. We've also played as far away as Boston, Dallas, and Key West.

Our motto: Focus on the FUN!

Booking an Event?

Need horns? Jersey's Own HOI POLLOI is sometimes known as the great expandable band!

Brides & Grooms, Party Hosts, Event Coordinators, and the Club & Restaurant managers of wedding reception halls have found Jersey's Own HOI POLLOI easy to work with.  We want your event to be what YOU want it to be...so when you're ready to hire our live band, you speak directly with Jim (Hoi Polloi's band leader and guitar player and all-around good guy).

We don't use a booking agent.
By handling the band's bookings ourselves, you save the 10-40% agency fee that other bands or DJs might charge.

We'll hold your date with no save-the-date fee.

There's ALWAYS Something Going On

This picture doesn't do it justice, but we've played in large beautiful country barns, and fancy city apartments. We're good like that.

When we're not hosting a private event, we're throwing our own parties! 


Watch our calendar for happy hours, open mics, and live local music on many Friday and Saturday nights. 


NOTE:

These events might change. Call the venue before you head out.
