The Hipposonics is a group of musicians from the Midwest started in 2011 with the idea that people really love to hear music that shaped them during their high school and college years. "Let's give them forgotten gems that other bands won't or don't play". That was the first statement made when other members were approached to form the band known as The Hipposonics. That's where the journey began and each and every year there is a new generation and a new genre of music surfacing in society and eventually arriving in the club scene. The Hipposonics continue to add new songs to their show with styles
hits and favorites in Pop,
Rock, Country, R&B,
Jazz, and even some fusion rock. Performing live music without back tracks or sequencing adds energy to the show with some of the greatest moments coming from improvisation. Being in the moment and working with the crowd to create an exciting and memorable experience is the goal of
every time that they step on stage. The Hipposonics perform at clubs and casinos in the Midwest and also take their show to private and corporate events as well as weddings
and civic festivals.
