The Northwest's Favorite Party Band!


Here’s what a few satisfied customers have to say about Hit Explosion

Words cannot express the immense joy and gratitude I feel for you and all who made my 40th birthday party one of the most memorable events of my life!  Like I said in my speech at the party, I’ve waited for at least 10 years for the day that Hit Explosion could rock my 40th Birthday Party, and not only was it worth the wait, but exceeded my wildest expectations!  The band’s look, energy and music made the party!  You guys were amazing!

I will forever be grateful for your work and care and will never forget!

Sincerely, Emy Chow-Greiner

Hit Explosion was amazing!!!  We loved having them down at Meeker Days.  Tell the band Thank You from all of us.

Thank you! You guys were exactly what we wanted. Sorry we barely even said hello. We were being whisked around and intercepted at every turn. So many friends and family have said it was the best party they’ve ever been to. One engaged couple even said they are interested in booking you after seeing you.

Thanks again for helping us have a perfect night.

We had Hit Explosion play for our party and they brought the beat from the first note! We loved the band’s interaction with our guests and their ability to keep us dancing late into the night. Very talented band with an even cooler disco/funk vibe!

Most people might be surprised to read that a ’70s cover band was voted ‘Best Band’ by readers of a Seattle publication. But Hit Explosion did it, and when one considers their remarkable resume – they’ve played in Seattle’s Kingdome and Portland’s Rose Garden and they’ve been hired by Bruce Willis, Detlef Schrempf, Fred Couples and Paul Allen –it becomes a bit less surprising. The fact that they’ve even been joined on-stage by Seattle’s uncrowned royalty, Bill Gates, puts them into very exclusive company.

The upbeat, danceable disco band has a following like few others, and their appeal is undeniable.” — Seattle P-I

(I) Just wanted to tell you how well received the group was last night… Hit Explosion got the crowd on their feet and dancing as soon as they started playing. All involved were SO easy to work with from set up to tear down. You guys are a class act. And they even allowed me, an old rocker, to play congas throughout the night…That’s above and beyond. Love to work with you all again soon. It was a pleasure.

Thank You for your support of Pioneer Square’s NYE Celebration. The event was vastly more successful than we ever anticipated, & drew more than 10,000 enthusiastic people to the heart of downtown Portland. That success could not have been achieved without your help (Machine Entertainment, Inc.) & of Hit Explosion. The event received extraordinary print, radio and television media coverage, & feedback from the community has been nothing but positive…Please accept our sincere gratitude for your help in making Portland’s NYE Celebration such a great success. Looking forward to working with you again.

Just wanted to say thanks to Hit Explosion for another great show at our Fluor event last Thursday evening. As usual, the band was fantastic and everyone had a wonderful time dancing to the hits of the 70s! I also wanted to share that besides being such great performers, the members of the band were so very nice to work with. I enjoyed all of them – they were extremely polite & appreciation of the services we provided. Please pass on a big thanks & appreciation to everyone involved with the Hit Explosion show for our event, and hope to work with you again in the future. Thanks again.

…Fun costumes, great sound and an enthusiastic crowd response. Along with the recommendation of several coworkers, and your reputation as one of Seattle’s best party bands, I felt confident in booking Hit Explosion for this important corporate event. The crowd loved the 70s tunes, and the energy of the band. Kudos to all of you for conveying your love of the music you sing.
Everyone in attendance felt the good vibrations, and the party was the talk of the town the following day!

Thanks again for your part in making (our) party a huge success.

Hit Explosion’s post game concert was a big success. It was our largest post-game concert ever!
I would trust Hit Explosion to give a 1st class performance anywhere.

Software tycoon Paul Allen, who co-founded Microsoft with Chairman Bill Gates, was the hit of Starwave’s Christmas party when the band Hit Explosion brought Allen and his guitar to the stage. Sources say Allen played four pieces, capping his performance with a rendition of “Play That Funky Music, White Boy.”

The Seattle Times

“Voted best band.”

The Seattle Weekly

They were one of the best bands ever to work with- our members LOVED them.

On behalf of One Reel and the Seattle Art Museum the Black and White Ball was a great success, the biggest turn out in years, due in part to your contribution.

A success at playing ’70’s tunes since they started three years ago at local clubs in Seattle, Hit Explosion now attracts fans from all over the northwest to their high energy, feel good shows. Some devotees wait up to 2 hours to get in the door to see a performance. They get everyone of all ages and ethnic groups together singing & dancing. It’s a great time! Hit Explosion plays funky disco classics with all the soul of an original.”

Tacoma City Paper

“This year’s Medina Days was spectacular…Tuesday’s concert was HUGE! Within its first 6 years, it has quickly become a landmark event and a great way to launch this incredible week. This year, even though we had a huge rain storm, the true die-hards of Medina stayed and danced the night away with Hit Explosion.”

“Ask anyone in the know and Hit Explosion will be the band at the top of the list.”

“Hit Explosion’s performance on Opening Night was absolutely fantastic! It went so smoothly,
and was a huge hit with all in attendance (sold out). We look forward to working with you again.”

Seattle SuperSonics

“It is no secret that they are Seattle’s number one band and can be held personally responsible for packing every venue they perform. Attendance at this year’s Great Northwest Microbrewery Invitational was 8,200, we believe Hit Explosion was a big part of that success.”

Festivals Inc.

“Last Friday night after Hit Explosion’s first set, a palpable cloud of steam rose off the body crush that packed not only the dance floor but every other nook and cranny of the brick-walled basement. They clearly love this music and their audience.”

Seattle Times

“Thank you for coordinating yet another outstanding Hit Explosion performance at the Sonics game on April 18th! They added a tremendous amount of energy to our Fan Appreciation Night festivities. As always, the band was so easy to work with! Please pass along our appreciation to them for yet another excellent performance. We are looking forward to many future performances next year.”

Seattle Sonics/Seattle Storm

“Your efforts at the Thank You Celebration played a vital role in the tremendous success of this year’s event. This was our most successful campaign ever we have exceeded our goal by over $2 million. Thank you very much for a job well done. You helped make ‘Good Happen.’
