Read what a few have said about Hook Me Up;
"Hook Me Up presents a very tight, broad-spectrum, and fast-paced program with energy and top-notch professionalism virtually no other quartets can match. Their performance at Jazz in the Valley 2011 in Ellensburg, WA was so successful and popular, in an unprecedented move we brought them back in 2012 for an afternoon main stage AND evening 3-hour club set. The Hook Me Up mix of instrumentals, vocals, audience interplay, and music in nearly any style imaginable, leaves this band completely exhausted by the end of every night, and audiences delighted."

"I'm hooked! Hook Me Up quartet played Olympia's Music in the Park last week to a crowd of 1,000 in Sylvester Park. The performance was upbeat and professional--with artist flair. Led by Tracey Hooker, the band really got the audience involved as Tracey stepped down from the gazebo and let his trumpet do the talking. Hook Me Up is very entertaining with great song selections and awesome sounds. They are definitely a sure thing and we'll be inviting Hook Me Up to play future dates in Olympia."

"I enjoyed the group for several reasons; good musicianship, a great mix of classic pop/fusion/jazz material, tight sound, short tunes, trumpet/flugel oriented ensemble, and a fun feel coming off the stage."
