Hit Machine Acoustic Demo
Hit Machine is a band you and your guests will never forget. Created by Bart Hafeman, the energy projected from this 7 piece band is highly contagious to say the least. The band plays hits from all eras as it’s not uncommon to here Stayin’ Alive (Bee Gees), Kiss (Prince), Dynamite (Taio Cruz), You Shook Me All Night Long (AC/DC) all in the same set. The band has synchronized dance moves and many appropriate ways to involve the crowd in the performance to make it an unforgettable event. Setlists can easily be tailored for the evening as well by focusing on a disco theme or an 80’s night. We offer dinner music as well. This can be played over the professional sound system from our laptop or played live by the band. The band line up can be expanded to add a 3 piece live horn section and female vocalists. Hit Machine has been a guest of many prominent events surrounding the Portland Metro area including headlining Hood to Coast 2010-2015 in Seaside, headlining the Fort Vancouver Fireworks 2010-2014, playing many Blazer Playoff games down at the Rose Garden and for top notch corporate clients such as Nike, Intel, Sony, HP, Windermere and Comcast.

Give us a call for your wedding! Here's a recent testimony from a client:
"When my wife and I set out to plan our wedding, we had a ton of decisions to make. It was very important to us that our wedding would be fun and memorable. That is why it was a no-brainer to have the HIT MACHINE rock our wedding....and they did not disappoint!!! The dance floor was epic, and nobody wanted the party to end, even going as far as chanting, "one more song!!" The setlist was perfect for young and old alike, and they did a great job interacting with the crowd. Bart was great to work with, and he made sure that the Hit Machine would make our day memorable. It seems like everyone we talk to says that our wedding was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding, and that the Hit Machine took the fun to whole new stratosphere!!! If you want a memorable wedding, with a rocking dance floor that will have people talking about it for months and years after, then hire the Hit Machine....like, NOW! We are thankful we did!!
