Thanks for checking us out! Based in Brattleboro, Vermont, Hipfunk Associates plays a variety of funk, R&B, soul, pop and reggae tunes, from the 70’s through the present: music to get down and into. A four piece band (male vocals, guitar, keys, bass and drums), Hipfunk Associates keeps multi-generations grooving and partying, as they perform hits from Michael Jackson to Pharrell Williams to Sublime to James Brown, among others. Lead singer Jay’s soul and energy brings you enthusiastically to the dance floor, guitarist Evan’s solos rip it up from another place, and Scott’s bass, Josh’s drums and Jay’s keyboard are firmly rooted in the groove. Check out our reviews here – Hipfunk Reviews!

With our diverse material, we are happy to cater to any needs you may have regarding genres and setlist. Getting married in Vermont? Here’s a chance to “go local” with a must-have band in Hipfunk Associates!
