Groom"Hot Pursuit and Big Mountain Bluegrass played music for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. As a groom, I expected the bride to have all the fun on the wedding day, but I can honestly say it was one of the best days of my life. It was dreamlike. And it was largely due to the musicianship, professionalism, and energy brought by Delene (band lead), Barry, Beth, and the rest of the band members.During the ceremony, we had their three-piece ensemble play classical songs, jazzy songs, and a couple special Cold Play instrumental songs that they learned especially for us. The three-piece ensemble played a mix of bluegrass, jazz, oldies, newies, and just easy listening music for cocktail hour. And they brought the party with a five-piece ensemble that played great dance music at the reception.Without hesitation they catered to me by setting up my guitar beforehand and letting me use a microphone to play a surprise song for my bride during the reception! The drummer even played with me a couple times during the chorus to nudge me back on beat. And as a non-professional musician who was slightly terrified of playing in front of 150 people, I was thankful for the help.Delene energetically engaged the whole crowed as MC and DJ at the reception when the band was taking short breaks. She really did a wonderful job.You never really know how things are going to turn out when planning a big event like this. But the Hot Pursuit Band and the Big Mountain Bluegrass Band exceeded my expectations in every way. I got so many comments from our guests about how wonderful the band was. They were a pleasure to work with from the beginning to the end. And I would highly recommend them for nearly any music genera at any event.Thank you Delene and crew!"

"My group, the Cameron Highlanders Pipe Band, hired Delene and the Hot Pursuit Band to provide the music for entertainment and dancing at our Annual Tartan Ball. It is a Scottish function and we needed a group that could play something that would suit all ages from teens to octogenarians and Hot Pursuit did a great job of pleasing everyone. In addition, they learned some Scottish tunes for some special folk dances that we always do at our ball. The band bent over backwards to meet our needs and they were all excellent musicians. We highly recommend the Hot Pursuit Band."

"Delene and Hot Pursuit were just wonderful to work with. My husband and I got married 12/13/14 and from the moment that I contacted Delene she was a joy. Professional to the max, all emails were answered FAST. Any questions I had were answered and I felt we were always on the same page. Last minute changes as well as a few reorganizations of the night's festivities were all accommodated. Our guests LOVED the music. Our guests have been raving about them all month. People danced all night, which is just what we wanted. We had 4 hours of band and 1 hour of DJ- it was all great. Also we opted to for their new lighting. It was amazing- made the ceiling look like a blue night sky. They truly made our wedding celebration magical. All the songs we asked them to play they did and they were excellent MCs for our toasts. HIGHLY recommend them!"

"Our son and his new wife were married in Scotland and wanted a country style potluck reception locally. We wanted music from Scotland, Ireland and England and we wanted our favorite country hits along with current dance tunes. We knew it would be tough to find musicians who could handle the musical diversity we were looking for. Well, we discovered Hot Pursuit and they are amazing! Delene and Barry set their equipment up outside on a cool evening on a flatbed trailer in front of a wooden dance floor and provided First Class entertainment to a crowd of over one hundred guests. The multitude of instruments they can play, combined with their excellent vocals, gave a rich, full sound. Our guests were very impressed with Delene's voice and many wanted to hear more of Barry's sax! If you want first class talent, hire Hot Pursuit!"
