Introducing The Hip Stars Band

Innovative Aussie startup offers events industry seamless, online connection to a national network of world-class music talent

Calling all event, wedding, conference planners, and venue owners nationally – an innovative startup from Sydney is going to change the way you work with musicians.

Featuring a who’s who of up-and-coming Aussie talent (including talent from The Voice and The X Factor), The Hip Stars Band has arrived to deliver professional, online, national access to an array of band configurations and musical genres.

Founded by singer and professional musician Javier Trueba, The Hip Stars Band is a cooperative of national musicians – singers and instrumentalists. As a booking portal, they also make a point of encouraging and fostering original live music talent where possible, offering reduced fees for event planners willing to take a punt with an original play list.

The Hip Stars Bands also offers free monthly showcase events around Australia, where event planners can preview live performances and meet the talent.

“I wanted to rebrand the whole notion of a 1980s-style ‘wedding singer’ in event-based musical performances,” said Trueba. “In my professional career I’ve seen and done a lot of corporate gigs, and I knew there was an opportunity to do things differently – for both musicians and event planners. The Hip Stars Band has been nearly a year in the making, but early feedback is showing it’s what the industry has been looking for.”

“It is important to bridge the gap between original artists and service industry musicians, acknowledging the talents of unsigned original artists who also play covers passionately,” continued Trueba. “Without original artists there would be no covers, therefore it is essential that we honour these musicians who understand the importance of the service industry by providing them with work opportunities.”

From a Jazz duo, or three-piece hard rock band, to a nine-piece Big Band swing style ensemble, The Hip Stars Band is flexible and diverse with their configurations and cater to any venue or event. For more delicate ceremonies, such as weddings, they are also able to piece together the finest string and orchestral players. The Hip Stars Band also designs personalised genres and playlists for any targeted audience.
