Over the top, high energy, incredible band!!

Hunks and Punks performed at my wedding at The Westin’s Venue TwentyTwo and they went beyond our expectations!! It was incredibly easy to coordinate with them leading up to our big day, and all communications were speedy and very detailed!

All my guests absolutely loved them and the dance floor was packed the entire night! They played at cocktail hour and after dinner, and Tim also coordinated our dinner music, and first dance songs. They engaged with the crowd and play so many popular hits! I HIGHLY recommend this band! They were sensational 12/10!!!

Hunks and Punks - A highlight of our celebration!

Tim and the rest of the members of Hunks and Punks were an integral part of our wedding day. They were wonderful to work with and helped to answer any questions we had throughout the process. They played an amazing set list and were full of energy from start to finish (even after a long encore!). They have an incredibly wide range of song choices and even learned two new songs that were important to us. They are all wonderful musicians, and we are still receiving rave reviews from our guests. I would highly recommend them as a band - their talent, kindness, and professionalism was a highlight of our day.

We recently had the pleasure of hiring Hunks and Punks to perform at our Halloween wedding in 2022 and I can’t say enough good things about them. From their energy onstage to their diverse and expansive repertoire, they exceeded all of our expectations. Hunks and Punks provided a night of unforgettable entertainment for everyone in attendance.They provided an incredible evening of entertainment that all of our guests will be talking about for months. We have people that are STILL asking us about the band. Not only did they have a great stage presence, but their diverse selection of songs from both classic and modern genres kept everyone dancing all night long. From the beautiful ballads to the upbeat pop hits, there was something for everyone. These guys were playing all day and all night long and we were shocked. All night, they only had 3 breaks, and we couldn't believe that they just kept going. They really kept the party moving all night. They played at both our cocktail hour and our reception and we had MANY people coming up to us mentioning how amazing the band was. There is absolutely nothing that compares to the incredible experience they gave us. You will absolutely not regret hiring Hunks and Punks to play at your wedding, they are incredible and not to be looked over. We were adamant that we wanted to hire a wedding band and so glad we found them. We saw them play live before we hired them and we knew that they would be perfect for our wedding. They started by giving us a list of songs that they know (that were by the hundreds!) and we got to hand select any songs that we wanted to hear. They also offered to learn any other specific songs that we wanted! I couldn’t believe it! Tim was a pleasure to deal with through the whole process both with me and my wedding planner (Erica Irwin). He never skipped a beat and made sure everything went seamless for all of us. My husband and I spoke to a few other wedding bands and had HORRIBLE experiences that were uncommunicative and pricing that was out to lunch, but Hunks and Punks were the opposite. Their pricing is not only fair, but I sincerely feel they are under charging for the incredible performance that they delivered. Seriously do not look any further if you are looking for entertainment for your wedding. You need to hire these guys. Just do it!

Hunks and Punks are the perfect wedding band!

One of most difficult and most researched decisions for our wedding was finding a band that had a great energy on stage, an impressive and varied song list, professionalism and of course met our budget! Hunks and Punks completely exceeded every single expectation and I would recommend them over and over again! The dance floor was packed full all night with guests of all ages!
What initially drew us to Hunks and Punks was their VERY impressive horn section,
the incredibly talented lead singer, their wide variety of songs – from top hits, to
ballads, to 60s Jazz – which is an unmatched selection by any other band that
we looked at! (Not to mention their energetic stage performance and presence and the experience that they
Many of our guests said our wedding was the best they've ever been to and we're certain our band played a huge role in that!
Tim of Hunks and Punks was fantastic to work with and extremely patient. He answered all of our questions and went above and beyond on our "day of", by introducing the wedding party and helping to coordinate our own recorded playlist between sets.
Thank you so much Tim and Hunks and Punks. We could not imagine our wedding reception without you!!

Guaranteed to have a blast!

Hunks & Punks made our wedding reception so special. Having a live band creates such a fun environment and we really just wanted our guests to have the best time. They have a big playlist so we picked the songs that we liked, and they even learned a few new ones for us that we wanted. As the groom, I even got up on stage and sang a song with them to my new bride which was really special - I'm no singer, but they made me sound great! They played late into the evening and never stopped jamming. They played our first dance song live which was incredibly beautiful to dance to. I would highly recommend them!

The best wedding decision you'll make!

Hiring Hunks and Punks was the best and most defining decision we made in our wedding planning process. They are incredibly talented, the range in their song offering is remarkable, and their energy is infectious. From 7:30pm to 1:00am they were the heartbeat of our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, including specially requested songs for the father-daughter walk down the aisle and our first dance. They continually went above and beyond from our first meeting through setup and takedown. Hunks and Punks played an immense role in making our event what many of our 200 guests have called “the best wedding” they've ever attended. You won't regret hiring Hunks and Punks for your wedding!

Amazing band

Hunks and punks learned our first song even though it wasn’t on the set list. They were extremely professional and went above and beyond. They even went as far and did some video taping for us and gave us a great ya. With wedding footage

Best band ever
