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


Our band has performed at hundreds of venues in the New York area...and even as far away as Boston, Dallas, and Key West.

Click around this site to find out a little bit about what we do, and why people hire us again and again to entertain at weddings, parties, restaurants, clubs, and public events.

Our focus is FUN!

Booking an Event?

Brides & Grooms, Party Hosts, Event Coordinators, and Club & Restaurant managers have found 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 entertainment for your event, 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 also hold a date for you without charging a save-the-date fee.

There's ALWAYS Something Going On

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.

Maryann & Don's Message AFTER THEIR WEDDING

Maryann & Don chime in! (Oct 2019)

We want to thank you and your band from the bottom of our hearts for such an amazing party!!! 

One after another, our friends and family said it was the “best wedding ever” and we know a huge part of it was because of you!   

I, for one, could not sit down. My heart was so full as I looked out at the seats and saw that the majority of them were empty most of the night because they were dancing! That says it all. 


Thank you for working with us on our vision. Thank you for letting our 7-year-old future grandson play impromptu guitar on stage, for backing my niece Cynthia, and for allowing Don and his brothers rock out with you.  We're still reeling from the day! 


Each and every one of you in the band is gifted and talented.  It was such a pleasure, especially as a nervous bride, to be comforted and guided along the way by such a patient leader.  We will keep our eyes on your schedule to see you again, and would hope to hire you to play at our lake house. 


That's how much we love you! 

We didn’t want the night to end!

No doubt we will see you again :)
Thank you so much! 

- Maryann & Don
