About
Hook Me Up is comprised of 4 of the top contemporary musicians in Western Washington. The average experience level of the individual members is 25 years and that experience shines through when we take the stage. A couple hours with HMU will have you enjoying a few jazz standards, instrumental pop, a few latin tunes, vocal tunes, and some original music from our summer 2008 CD release to keep things fresh. Collectively HMU members have performed for hundreds of weddings, yacht/golf clubs, corporate functions, and nightclub/casinos. You can have us play quiet dinner music or put on a show, or both!

Some of our past performances include Multicare, H.G. Bistro, Muckleshoot Casino, Charles Wright Academy, Celebrate Shoreline Festival, Olympia Golf and Country Club, Tacoma Jazz Festival, Mt. Rainier Wine Festival, Sullivan's Steakhouse, Capital Lakefair Olympia, Jazz in the Valley. Lacey Music in the Parks, Auburn Avenue Theatre, Bremerton Blackberry Festival, Burien Strawberry Festival, Tunes for Tapps, Crossroads Mall, Proctor Arts Festival, Emerald Downs Racetrack, Obelisco Estate Winery, Franke Tobey Jones Concerts on the Lawn, Jazzbones, and more! 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."

Norm Wallen

Jazz in the Valley Board of Directors, Ellensburg, WA

"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."

Donelle DeuelMusic in the Park
Producer Olympia Downtown Association

"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."

Found Hook Me Up via Gig Masters and we couldn't be happier. They knew what we needed/wanted and carried the night. We trusted James with song selections and he and the band did a marvelous job. Everyone had a good time and couldn't stop talking about the band. We couldn't ask for more.

The band was very talented and the guys seemed cool! I was disappointed however that they did not play the one song I requested. The music selection was pretty good, but it wasn't the best for dancing. My communication to the group was very limited pre-event which I'm sure made a difference. They were a great addition to the event all in all and I would happily recommend them.

Hook Me Up’s Response:

Consider that the client was un-available for the 30 days leading up to the performance. It was agreed that the song that they wanted would be provided by the clients sister to be played on our P.A. gear but the sister never surfaced with a CD of the song. We are not a "dance band". Some of our music is danceable. Our set list is right on our website and the contract stated music according to the Hook Me Up songlist. Nice people and they seemed to enjoy the music very much.
