  • As a seasoned event planner for more than 15 years, and when it came time to plan my own celebration.... HOT MESS was hands down my first (and lets be honest.. ONLY) choice to celebrate. I have worked with Jason as a vendor partner on many occasions, and knew that his warmth and professionalism (and not to mention great humor) were a perfect match. Not only are Jason + Co some of the most talented performers I have worked with in my experience, he works with couples on a personal level to make sure that everything flows in a way that is seamless and keeps the party going! Every part of the planning experience - from working with Gail to putting the song list and details together with Jason leading up to the party is seamless. I am very particular when it comes to those details and knew that their performance would go above and beyond!! All of my friends and family still text me daily saying how they were "THE BEST BAND" they have ever heard. Do your self a favor and hire them. It will ... Read more

  • My husband & I had Lucky 13 as our band and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! From beginning to end, the band was high-energy, fun, and professional! Guests are still commenting on how much fun they had!

  • Sugah Rush (via the Hank Agency) played the large holiday employee party (400-500 people) at our school. They were easy to book. Provided very clear stage plots of tech riders. They were flexible and allowed us to share some backline for a few small employee opening acts. (They can provide their own sound system but we already had that covered.) The band was nice as could be before and after the show. And the three sets they played were NON-STOP STOP killer party tunes! VERY tight band. GREAT singers & players. Having both male and female singers really opens up the catalog and lets them cover a huge spectrum. They even wandered out into the audience during a few moments while singing. FANTASTIC stage presence! Sharply dressed. This is at least the second time our institution has hired them and we just booked them for a third event in the spring.

    Sam, you are making us blush!!! Thanks for the kind words, what a party it was, thanks for having us. We can't wait to see you this spring!

  • Ricky Express was a dream band! Excellent musicians who learned our esoteric processionals songs and then later in the night, brought it big on the main stage. So much fun! Made the night.

  • Working with Tania at the Hank Agency is always a breeze. She is responsive, collaborative and provides great ideas and suggestions. We hired DJ Rick Express. He was friendly, fun and got the crowd on the dance floor! He was flexible with song suggestions and ideas as well on the night of the event. I would recommend both Hank Agency and DJ Rick Express any day!

    Thanks for trusting us with your entertainment! Ricky had a BLAST and hopes to do it again next year! Happy Holidays.

  • Lucky 13 may be a four piece band, but they cover all the bases: Rock, soul, funk...throwbacks and new classics. They do it all. They even let my wife and I sit in for a couple of songs. They are true professionals, and they WILL rock you. Bet on Lucky 13 for your special day.

    Billy and Sara, I don't know what to say except mind blown... WOW! Sara you belted out a rock tune that shook us and Billy, took a seat at the drums, what an EPIC video! Thanks for sharing the stage with us, it was AWESOME! Wishing you the best in your new journey together and may there be more stage performances by you two. Happy Holidays.

  • I hired Sugah Rush for an outdoor 3,000 person festival after seeing them live at a wine festival and they nailed it! Tania was so easy to work with and made my event run so smoothly. The band was on time and professional and really read the crowd. I would absolutely hire Sugah Rush again!

    Brittany, thank you for the kind words! Sugah Rush loved this party, we hope to be back next year! Thank you for trusting us with your entertainment!

  • This is our third year in a row we booked Hot Mess for our member holiday party. Every year, they exceed our expectations and our members will stay dancing until the very end! With our group, they have to appeal to all age groups and they do just that. Jason the band leader is so energetic and friendly, making it so fun to work with him every single year. Highly recommend booking this group for your wedding or any other social function!

    Haylie, we LOVE doing your member guests event year, they are a BLAST! Hope to see you and the entire crew again next year!

  • My husband and I got married a few weeks ago and we still cannot stop talking about Hot Mess. Jason, Gail, and the rest of the band were amazing right from the start. We had a particularly long reception with a lot moving parts and Gail and Jason were so kind and devoted to putting together the perfect evening for us. We got a chance to speak with Jason over the phone the week before the wedding and go over everything and what shined through even more than his professionalism was his genuine excitement to be a part of our day! Jason was even more excited in person when we met him the day of! We were able to relax and enjoy our reception knowing that Jason and the rest of the band were going to bring the fun- and did they ever! We had family and friends coming up to us all night commenting on how amazing and fun the band was! Everyone loved the variety of instruments and the variety of songs played. The band even did a great job incorporating some traditional Italian music that my famil... Read more

  • I have experienced Sugah Rush at my brother's wedding and at my own. I would get married 50 times over just to have a reason to book them again! We paid extra during the reception to extend the playing time because no one wanted it to end. Our dance floor was packed with people from the first song to the last. They are amazingly talented, energetic, personable and supportive. You absolutely cannot choose any other band but Sugah Rush!

    responded with the following comments.

    Lesley, that is so sweet! We loved being part of your celebration. WE can't wait for your one year anniversary party, hint hint. It was so nice to see faces we recognized in the crowd and seeing how much fun every had at your wedding. Congrats to you both!

  • I am willingly happy to give a good, great, over the top reference to eric grant and sugah rush band! We were more than pleased with the performance at our wedding 9-21-19 at the Margate! We had decided to have them play piano duo as the guests were taking their seats- it gave a romantic, pure vibe! Best decision I made!!! They also did acoustics for us during cocktail hour! Simply beautiful! When it came to the reception- he was promptly ready to get the bridal party in our places and start the party off right! He kept the crowd on the dance floor the entire night! - at several points I stepped back to take a look, and everyone was on the dance floor- it was amazing! Now for most people including myself, I tend to take breaks and sit down during some songs at weddings! Not this one, not with sugar rush- he had us all dancing all night long! Their entertainment, musicality, organization and communication throughout the wedding planning was top notch! I would not of wanted it a... Read more

  • Everyone raved about Soul of Boston. They made the night SO FUN and kept everyone dancing all night. Thank you Apollo, Gail, and all for your help and attention to detail! We had an incredible night thanks to you!!!!! I’d hire them again in a second. Also they killed a few requests like Third Eye Blind and Shania Twain :)

    Alyssa, your party was AMAZING, Apollo and the gang loved rocking out all night with you guys :) Let's do it again sometime.

  • Unbelievable! Where do I even begin?! Book this band immediately! Hot Mess preformed at our wedding in Sept 2019 and blew my expectations out of the water. From the beginning, Gail and Jason were wonderful to work with. Jason even managed to keep me calm when we thought we might have a wedding amidst hurricane Dorian. I knew either way, they’d help us throw an incredible party. And that they did. The night of the wedding, they knocked it out of the park. I know people say this, but I mean it - they got EVERYONE dancing. Including my 91 year old grandmother. They truly and honestly made our wedding. It was such a joyous and FUN celebration. So so many guests have said Hot Mess is the best wedding band they’ve ever heard. All I can say is wow. My heart is bursting just writing this review because everyone and everything was so amazing. Don’t hesitate to book this band, it will be the best decision you make.
