Edinburgh Wedding Band - Hip Operation in Scotland
Hip Operation is one of the most polished and professional acts in Scotland. The backbone of the band has been playing together for over thirty years and the line-up has expanded to its present form operating as a seven/eight piece producing multi-instrumental versatility and exquisite close vocal harmony.
The band will perform a slick set of songs covering classic pop, rock, soul and disco classics from the 60s to the very latest chart hits, providing something for everyone on the night. A ceilidh set of 20 minutes can also be provided.
The band's reputation for live performances over the years has elicited invitations to play events from Charity Balls to Beer Festivals in locations from Brechin to Brussels.
Hip Operation has consistently proved they can "hit the button" whether it be a bar room, wedding, or baronial seat.
Pre-recorded background music can be provided during the buffet and breaks.
The band have a state of the art sound system and lighting.

Hip Operation - Sample Set List
Help! How do I play these music files?
It's easy! Just double-click on the link and Windows Media Player (or whatever music player you have installed on your PC) should run and start playing the music file within a few seconds. Make sure you have your speakers plugged in and switched on.
If you have a Broadband internet connection (which is very fast), then the music files should play very smoothly straight away.
However, if you have a standard "Dialup" connection (your modem dials up to allow you to make the connection to the internet) then you will find the music file stops and starts all the time. This is because your PC music player is trying to stream or play the music as it downloads to your hard drive but your internet connection isn't fast enough to play the music smoothly.
If that is what is happening to you, then all you have to do is let the music stagger through once (it is downloading as this is happening) and then it will play at full speed after that. You can then listen to the the music file as many times as you want.
Alternatively, you can download the mp3 first and play it from your Hard Drive. To do this, just right-click on the mp3 link and select "Save target as" from the drop-down menu.
You can then save the mp3 file to your Desktop or any other folder of your choice.
When the mp3 file is completely downloaded, double-click on it and it will play immediately on Windows Media player or whatever music player you have installed.
We hope that has helped you. If not, just give us a ring on 0141 577 6604 and we'll talk you through it.
We're here to help you in any way we can.
