About
The HGT Band (HOME GROWN TOMATOES), is a seasoned, professional variety band with a musical repertoire guaranteed to please all ages, from eight to eighty! HGT's diverse repertoire includes top 40 favorites, Classic Rock and Country as well as pop tunes from the 50's and 60's & 70's. As a Variety Band we also play Waltzes, Polkas, and all sorts of Jazz tunes.

As a bunch of band directors, we play multiple instruments. This five piece Ensemble, HGT features vocal harmonies, guitar, keyboards, drums, bass guitar as well as brass and woodwind instruments. The drummer will jump out from the drums and sing a lead while adding a trumpet solo, the guitar player will hop on the clarinet, or sax or flute for a polka tune. The trumpet guy will switch to a tenor sax. The bass man will hop out on his tuba and blow your socks off as he entertains up close and personal. The keyboard guy will grab the wireless mic and head out into the audience to feature guest artists... as in YOU! We love to have fun and engage with our audience.

Bring your dancing shoes as HGT will keep you on your feet.

We perform for all occasions and will work with any size crowd. We will work at any event: Weddings, Anniversaries, Night Clubs, or any private or public event. HGT is a very flexible band!

The HGT Band is willing to travel up to 500 miles from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Contact us for more information.

We booked HGT for our June 22nd wedding ceremony and reception. Everything was perfect. Don and the band accommodated every little request we had for the ceremony and the reception. They had everyone from our 8 year old flower girl to our great aunts out on the dance floor the entire night. They were excellent at reading the crowd. They went into the crowd, invited people on stage, and played all requests. Countless wedding guests have commented on how great the band was and how much fun they had. We recommend them for any and all events you may have. They will be without a doubt our first choice the next time we need a DJ or band.

The HGT were a fantastic band. You have 5 retired music teachers who all play multiple instruments. They obviously play drums, guitar, bass, etc. however, they play tuba, trumpet, cow bell, etc. which is really unique. They play many different genres of music. Don (band leader) is easy going and easy to work with. They interact well with the crowd and will cater their personalities to your specific crowd. They are well priced in the market and a happy group of guys. I would strongly recommend that you hire HGT for your next event. We had them for our wedding, and they were really a hit with our guests. Thank you to Don and the HGT team!

We booked HGT for our wedding reception and were extremely pleased with the results. They were able to play music appealing to all ages on a variety of instruments. They were extremely flexible and any song that they did not know we could play on an IPod using their sound system. They are all incredibly talented musicians in addition to being entertainers.

I booked Home Grown Tomatoes for our September 2011 wedding and was beyond impressed. After deciding we wanted a live band, we next started searching for a band that could play music from multiple genres. We had an outdoor wedding of over 300 people and both the logistics and acoustics were perfect. The band came early enough for us to use their microphone for our toasts, and were professional, fun, and most importantly, great musicians. We wanted a band people would dance too, and the dance floor was packed the whole night, and we also received many compliments on the choice of music/live band from so many of our guests. I would highly recommend them.

We were not sure what to expect having only heard songs from Gigmaster's website, but they were within our budget and had the variety of music we were wanted for our wedding reception dance (danceable music for ages 4-80). We were very impressed with HGT band. They definitely exceeded our expectations. We received many compliments and inquiries about the band and how we found them. One of our main hopes was that we would have people dancing. We weren't worried for long as the dance floor was overflowing for most of the evening. At the end of the night, both the guests and the band seemed to want to keep going, but we had to be out of the room.
