"Delene and Barry are absolutely the best!! We hired them for my 64th birthday party and everyone, from age three to 70 loved the choice of music. Both are extremely talented and play an unbelievable array of instruments and styles of music. Hire them...and have a great time. We did!!"

"We hired Hot Pursuit Band for our Wedding Ceremony and Reception. The music was beautiful and our guests loved it. We loved the atmosphere the violinist added to our ceremony. It was just what we wanted! We enjoyed customizing our party playlist and it was great, since Hot Pursuit also provides a DJ service! We had a lot of fun at the reception and it was because of Delene & Cahill. They are wonderful performers! They are professional and responsive. I highly recommend!"

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."
