Hipstamatics

Auckland based Funk/Soul Band.
This 10 piece band, play arrangements/remixes of iconic songs in a style unique to The Hipstamatics.

Hipstamatics are now a household name in the live music community in New Zealand.  They were founded by guitarist Kelly Pram of Auckland Soul Productions in 2011. The 10 piece line up has gone through many changes over the years but has slowly built up its stellar crew with an incredible feat of credentials to back their amazing talents. The bands style and musicality takes from classic 70s and other funk fusion elements of today. In the last year Hipstamatics have been focusing their efforts on creating original music with the distinct flavor that makes the Hipstamatics sound that it is today, Plans are in motion in 2015 to write and record their first album… Watch this space

Testimonials: 

You guys were amazing! I totally loved your performance, and I could see that the rest of the audience did, too. Thank you so much.  Michael Hodgson, BE(Mec) Auck.

Thank you all once again for the Hipstamatics performance yesterday.  I was so worried that you’d have to play to a dead room, but I should have had more faith in funk!  It was incredible to see the room build into such an energetic, joyful afternoon dance party and a great way to wrap up the event on a high!  Deborah McSmith, Business Development Manager, Q theater 

"The Hipstamatics are fabulous! They are truly soulful, funky and full of fire. They remind me of a legendary Soul Revue band, seamlessly joining all their songs together and working them with all the vigour and sweat that these songs deserve. You will get on the good foot!!"  Peter Urlich, Entertainment Manager @ Taste Of Auckland
