This 10 piece band, play authentic, soul powered arrangements and remixes of iconic songs, conceived by, and unique to The Hipstamatics.
The Hipstamatics are a household name in the live music community in New Zealand. This 10 piece line up has gone through many changes over the years but has slowly built up its stellar crew with an incredible feat of credentials to back their amazing talents.
The bands style and musicality takes inspiration from classic 70s and other funk fusion elements of today. In the last year Hipstamatics have been focusing their efforts on creating original music with the distinct flavour that makes the Hipstamatics sound that it is today.
Their live performance oozes energy and is second to none and is guaranteed to have you and your guests on the dance floor!
"The Hipstamatics are fabulous! They are truly soulful, funky and full of fire. They remind me of a legendary Soul Revue band, seamlessly joining all their songs together and working them with all the vigour and sweat that these songs deserve. You will get on the good foot!!"
Peter Urlich, Entertainment Manager @ Taste Of Auckland
"Professional, on time, polite and sounded fantastic. Hipstamatics just blew us all away. Recommend them to anyone!"
Annelise Vickery, Business Development Manager @ Jansen Pro Audio
Can't rate this band highly enough. Hipstamatics played our wedding...everyone had a blast and the dance-floor was packed all night long. Truly worth every penny, and ever since, our guests have been ringing up asking us for the name of the band."

Hipstamatics embrace the current vogue of funking up pop and soul covers from ‘Creep’ and ‘Misty Frequencies’ to ‘Hotel California’. With two male vocalists and one female vocalist they have a knack of creating arrangements that surprise, and in cases surpass, the originals. They have taken the Otis Redding trashing of the Beatles’ ‘Day Tripper’ and made it work and their take on Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Move On Up’ adds a cool vocal twist."
Murray Cammick, Writer @ Rip It Up Magazine
I thoroughly recommend Hipstamatics for weddings and events. They were very professional and easy to work with at the wedding. Punctual, well organized and came to inspect the Venue before the event. They set up in plenty of time and sound checked, ready to go, well ahead of schedule. The band was a huge hit with the all the guests, everyone hit the dancefloor and stayed there all night!"
Anna Didsbury, Manager @ Brick Bay Wines & Sculpture Trail
This band is truly a crowd pleaser. The best feedback I’ve received from any band so far, we’d be happy to have these guys back again!"
Hope Bates, Entertainment/Marketing Mngr @ Sky City Casino Queenstown
"The staff had an absolute ball with only one complaint - that the evening ended too soon with so many songs left to play. Your band was fabulous and what a great team. Whew!"
