What people say

Hark Up is the the best band I have ever hired. They have been my go to band for just about 10 years delivering a quality, fun, amazing experience. They know how to get a crowd moving and people dancing.

We hired a small ensemble of Hark Up Musicians for our first annual private Fundraiser. The event was such a success! People to this day are still talking about how much they enjoyed the music. We are making it a yearly event.

I just wanted to let you know that last night was EXACTLY the kind of Thursday evening I wanted our concert series to get to - amazing music, a crowd filled with all ages, incomes, abilities, a successful night at the food truck! It just was fantastic!
Julie Stafford
Greenville Rotary Concert in the Park
Wow, the band was fantastic last night. You have a new fan. You do such a great range of music and everyone is perfect. To go from James Taylor to Beatles, Holiday Inn, to those great patriot songs was very enjoyable. You may have seen me. I was the Vietnam Vet who came and danced and played my air guitar. Thank you again for a great musical evening. To me, the fireworks were a let down after hearing Hark Up.
