Swivel Hip Testimonials

North Carolina Pickel Festival

"SwivelHip is THE premier party band. I booked them to perform at the 2015 North Carolina Pickle Festival in Mount Olive and the crowd loved them. I rarely bring the same band back two years in the row, but due to the overwhelming positive response, I have booked them to perform again at our 2016 festival. SwivelHip is a dynamic, fun-loving, highly-energy band that performs a diverse group of songs that would be perfect for any special event or occasion. They engage the audience and their music MAKES you want to dance. I have seen this band perform at various venues (inside and outside) and each time, their entertaining performance reminds me why I and everyone else loves them so much. As we say in Mount Olive, this band is DILLightful. They Rock!”
