Since 2008, Hey Jimmy has been the premier party dance band based out of Chicago. Although they call Chicago home that has not kept them from entertaining the nation - - with performances at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Boston, Austin, Kansas City, Dallas, Denver, Orlando, and soon to be overseas. Hey Jimmy's brides and grooms and corporate clientele will stop at nothing to make sure Hey Jimmy is there to give their guests the party of parties.
Hey Jimmy's goal is not to be the busiest band around. They simply want to be the best band around. Quality is the goal. They have achieved that for nearly ten years now and showing no sign of slowing down.
There are some who will tell you that smaller and cheaper is better. Others will tell you that bigger and more expensive is better.
The truth is...
Smaller isn't better
Bigger isn't better
Better is Better.
We knew long before we were engaged that we wanted Hey Jimmy to be our wedding band. They did not disappoint! The dance floor was packed the entire night. We received so many compliments on them and are thrilled knowing everyone had such a great time. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We went with the gold package, which features a horn section. My husband pushed for this and initially I wasn't so sure. Wow, was I wrong! Getting that package was worth every penny. Seriously, book Hey Jimmy. They're the best!
Hey Jimmy was awesome for our wedding at the Newberry Library in November 2016. They played the songs we prioritized, they engaged with the dance floor, and they generally made our wedding a fantastic party. Jimmy was easy to work with leading up to our wedding, and everything was seamless that day. We received multiple compliments and several people asked how we found Hey Jimmy – we continue to receive compliments months later! And, the price is far more reasonable than the bigger companies out there enabling us to go with a live band rather than a DJ. In short, don’t hesitate to book Hey Jimmy!
Hey Jimmy was a dream to work with! My husband and I feel SO fortunate to have booked them for our wedding. I had seen Hey Jimmy perform at a friend's wedding a few years ago and at Social 25 in Chicago. They have a great song list, wonderful energy, and are so talented! You MUST check them out! I cannot say enough good things about them, and neither could our wedding guests!
Hey Jimmy played at our wedding last month and was the life of the party! I can honestly say it's the only wedding I've been to where the guests did not stop dancing from the second speech were over until the lights came on. The dance floor was even packed during the bands only break! Most wedding bands take multiple breaks, but Hey Jimmy kept on playing and only took one! We'd recommended these guys to everyone. Also, the lead singer was on the Voice this season!
They also provided an acoustic guitarist for our ceremony, and a jazz trio for cocktail hour. Both of which were equally amazing as the band itself.
My fiancé and I date-nighted to 5 bars before we landed on Hey Jimmy @ Social 25. We were not looking for a pop-ish band filled with Katy Perry, but a band who could hit every decade and do it well. We instantly knew they'd be a great fit.
Hey Jimmy blew it out of the water! They exceeded our expectations. I was warned with our atrium venue sound could be an issue, and they nailed that too. One of my favorite parts of the whole night was watching how happy my now husband was when they played his favorite song by Talking Heads.
I also felt they were a great value. They took care of cocktail hour, brought in a pianist for dinner, and we were able to add a horn section that KILLED IT.
Thanks Hey Jimmy!
Many thanks to your awesome awesome band! They were fantastic vocalists and musicians and Lloyd was a fabulous emcee who rolled with the many changes throughout the night and got everything right with a big smile. Please pass on my sincerest thanks to every member and I look forward to another wedding soon!!!
To every bride and groom out there--stop searching for a wedding band and book Hey Jimmy NOW! I can't give them enough 5 stars!! Thank you thank you thank you for literally been the best band ever!!!! My new husband and have been getting nonstop messages, calls, and emails from friends and family saying how you are literally the best band they've ever heard at a wedding or an event and we couldn't agree more! Hey Jimmy exceeded all of our expectations (which were very high!) and made our night so special, memorable and fun! I honestly have never heard a band this great in my life and I listen to a lot of live music. The dance floor was PACKED and people were having the best time from start to finish! They are professional, prompt, nice, fun, cool, hip uber-talented and not cheesy! They played every song we asked for and even learned some new ones just for us! They are seriously THAT good! I looked at a LOT of bands before picking Hey Jimmy and I 100000% made the right choice! Book them now before someone else does--you will not regret it!!! Thank you Hey jimmy for giving us the best night of our lives!
Love, Holly & Bill
