The Hatties

Southamptons Favourite Band


10 Years in the making - Hattie Jacques' Playlist are a highly regarded 8 piece band playing their own unique mix of Soul-Britpop  music with some "future classic" tracks addded to the mix -  not your generic cookie cutter "function" band.


A brief Hattie history

The Hatties - or Hattie Jacques playlist were formed  as a five piece and quickly grew into a full 8 piece outfit - with a horn section. The bands musical roots stem from a love of 60's Soul music and an appreciation of much of the Brit Pop genre. The Hatties earned their reputation by gigging solidly and built a loyal following. The band has played the Brook, Talking Heads, Soul Cellar to sell out audiences and numerous corporate events and weddings all over the country. The band has headlined the Alresford Music Festival and played  many other music events including a support slot with brit-pop veterens  Dodgy.  The band splits its time between corporate events, weddings  and playing public venues / charity events whenever the opportunity arises .

2018 sees the Hatties playing with what is  regarded as their strongest musical line up since the band started and still eager to bring their live music show to as many as people.

“Thank you so much for being a part of our day the band truly was absolutely everything that we had wanted for our evening reception - a great wedding and party band. So many people have contacted us since the wedding to say how fantastic it all was and many have said (with great enthusiasm) 'where did you find that band, they were fantastic!' People who wouldnt usually dance were up dancing and we all had the most amazing time. The bottom of my dress is black where I didn’t sit down all night! A huge and genuine thank you from us and all of our guests"

Wedding - Winchester


I cannot recommend The Hatties highly enough. An absolutely fantastic band, with huge energy and fun, as well as being genuinely lovely people and superbly accomplished musicians. Book these guys - your guests will love you for it ”

“John and I want to say the BIGGEST thank you to you all.  When we heard you play before we booked you, we were blown away and, without exception, everyone has said how absolutely fantastic you were.  When my brother was leaving for Australia at 0600hrs the following morning and I asked himwhat his favorite memory of wedding was, he replied "Mum dancing to Park Life”

Wedding Itchen Abbas

"The Hatties were amazing, everyone loved their music - even the oldies! We loved how the lead singer was so interactive at the end and it really made such a huge impact on everyone a lovely wedding and party band- we loved every second!"
