About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Northern Fried is one of the jammiest and rootsy bands in New England. Working with our clients we create groovy music backdrop, or a rocking sing along built with a combination of guitar, slide guitar, piano and organ, a tight rhythm section consisting of bass, drums and percussion with multi-part vocal harmonies to cultivate the Northern Fried vibe for their fun time. Occasionally we have one of our favorite Sax players sit in as well. Our music is a combination of R&B, classic and southern rock, mixed with a tinge of New Orleans funk, traditional blues and reggae for flavor. Blue eyed soul meets black eyed peas in a joyous, musical mashup. Think Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, The Band, Doobie Brothers, and Little Feat, blended with Stevie Wonder and The Meters, DMB, Hall and Oats, Phish and Steely Dan. Together for more than 20 years the band has performed countless weddings, corporate events, fund raisers and club gigs. We can perform both a quiet cocktail hour set of instrumental jazz as well as several hours of Classic Rock, R&B, Soul and Funk with a handful of contemporary tunes thrown in for good measure.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 31, 2019From Spencer, MA

The band did an awesome job. The dance floor was packed the entire night. They went above and beyond to accommodate songs that my daughter and her husband loved. I would not hesitate and hope to hire them again for other functions!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 6, 2014From Alton Bay, NH

The Hootchies were amazing and helped make my wedding truly special. They were very professional and helpful, and they took great care to make sure I had everything I wanted. The whole band was super nice, and Greg was very charming. Most importantly, the band sounded AMAZING, it was all people could talk about at the wedding and the dance floor was full until the end of the night. We got more than our money's worth, and would recommend them to anyone.

WeddingReviewed on August 9, 2014From Bristol, RI

The Hootchies put on an incredible show at our wedding! We asked them to play during our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, and they played hard and sounded great all day. The reception was especially awesome - they played funky jam after funky jam (including nearly all of the songs we suggested) and kept people of all ages on the dance floor all night. They were all super talented, and many of our guests told us how much they loved the band! They were very nice to work with beforehand, and were very patient with our anxieties. When the big day arrived, it turned out we had nothing to worry about. We'd recommend The Hootchies to anyone!
