It was a true pleasure working with Hip & Hitched! We could not have asked for a better experience. Everyone was very responsive to emails, they answered all of my (many!) questions and made the whole process very easy for us. At the wedding reception, DJ TD kept everyone out on the dance floor and was really able to read the crowd and play the right song, at the right time! When we were planning, they suggested the light up dance floor, which I am so glad we had! So many people have told us how much they loved the DJ and music and how much fun they had dancing. I loved working with Hip & Hitched and Tim, and I have already recommended Hip & Hitched to friends for their weddings and give them two thumbs up!

Stephanie 2.6.16
Hip & Hitched is fantastic! We recently hosted a friend’s wedding reception at our home and had Topher as our DJ. Having a DJ was somewhat of a last-minute addition to the plans, and the H&H team was so helpful and accommodating through the entire planning process. At the event, our Dj was a master at timing the type and volume of music as we progressed through cocktails, dinner, toasts, cake cutting, and then of course dancing. He played every song we requested and completely read the crowd to get everyone on the dance floor. Super professional, talented, kind, helpful, and fun! I would hire Hip & Hitched again in a heartbeat.

Jamie 1.23.16
Hip and Hitched was so wonderful for our wedding! Not only did they do an awesome job as the DJ at our reception, but he coordinated a string trio for our ceremony as well as a jazz trio for our cocktail hour. Everything went so smoothly, and the whole team was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. We had a lot of people tell us how much they enjoyed all the music. We absolutely would recommend Hip and Hitched for your wedding!

Michelle 12.12.15
If you’re contemplating hiring Hip & HItched for your wedding – stop thinking about it and JUST DO IT! Tim was the absolute best. From the moment I reached out to him about our December wedding, he was the easiest, nicest and most responsive vendor I worked with. He was genuinely excited about our wedding and offered amazing advice throughout the entire process. He met with me and my fiance during the planning process so we could get to know one another and discuss what was most important on our wedding day. If I emailed him to ask him something or make a change, he got back to me immediately every single time. Music was a HUGE part of our wedding night and Tim KILLED it. He played every song we wanted and even threw in a couple that we didn’t ask for but would have had we thought of it. The dance floor was jam-packed the entire night. Best DJ ever!!! Oh and they did our Video as well, makes me cry every time I see it. H&H are truly a one stop shop!!

Derek 10.24.14
The Hip & Hitched crew DJed our recent wedding and it was absolutely perfect. All along, our plan was to have a short ceremony, no speeches, and get as much time on the dance floor as we could. I met with Tim to talk about specific songs we wanted played and it was like hanging out with a friend. He put together an amazing DJ set (and trust me, you’re getting a professional DJ set and not any kind of “just press play” situation). The lights. The set up. The MC skills. All perfect and stress-free. If this sounds like what you’re looking for, then there no choice. Just book them!

Amber 10.10.15
Hip and Hitched was amazing from start to finish. Communication was excellent and they were there to make sure your needs were exceeded. Amazing group of people, highly professional and

Kerri 9.6.15
Hip & Hitched is the best wedding DJ you could hire. I wanted the kind of reception where the dance floor is packed and people sing and dance all night long. DJ TD made it happen! He was super knowledgeable and professional, not to mention an all-around great guy. He went above and beyond to make the music selection reflect what we wanted, and mixed together our diverse styles in a way that was absolutely nothing short of a musical journey. On the night of our event, he even invited the bride over to the DJ booth to spin some mad beats. SO AWESOME, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Kim & Bain 5.16.15
Hip & Hitched delivered on our vision of our wedding celebration. We met with them and explained our vision of a “non traditional” wedding celebration, provided him some guidance, but really let him do his job. H&H knocked it out of the park and turned our wedding into everything we had hoped and dreamed it would be! He had everyone on the dance floor the entire night with our guests not wanting the night to end! Thank You! I would most definitely recommend Hip & Hitched to anyone planning their perfect party! Thanks guys ! Super organized. We had a blast. Thank you so much!!

Sally & Ted 4.18.15
Hip & Hitched rocked our wedding in Decatur. They worked that room perfectly, and made it into a great dance party. The last couple of songs/mixes were an exclamation point on our big day. Super friendly, clear communicator, and punctual – H&H was one of the best vendors we worked with for our wedding. Hire Them! You’ll be glad you did.

Karen & Bill 3.21.15
Hip and Hitched played the perfect music for our wedding. We only had to provide the general theme and they were able to pick up the exact vibe we wanted for our special day. They also played guests requests and helped keep things moving along at the pace we wanted. I would recommend these guys to anyone.

Ann Sims 2.28.15
We worked with H&H for our wedding at the end of May and are so happy that we did. From the very first call to the day of the wedding, Tim & team were extremely responsive and professional which made us feel totally comfortable that we were in the right hands. My husband and I both have pretty particular taste in music and having a dance party that reflected that was really important to us. That said, we’re not professional musicians/DJs in any way and knew that we needed someone we could totally hand the reins to once they had a feel for our style. Tim did exactly that. He played a perfect mix of our individual song choices and other songs that fit that style but would also keep the party going. He kept the dance floor full for a solid 3 hours and people came up to be throughout the night commenting on what a great DJ we had. Thank you Tim & Hip & Hitched !!

Jen & Chris 1.24.15
Hip & Hitched was awesome!!! They made the wedding a full out dance party! Played exactly what was requested beforehand in the perfect order to get the party moving 🙂 So professional too! I would definitely recommend them to all of my friends!

Amy Williams 12.31.14
Hands down made the evening! I was fortunate enough to book Tim for for my wedding New Years Eve. My husband surprised me with the Grammy award winning artist The Mad Violinist. The collaboration between the two made the crowd go crazy. I can’t begin to express the hype the DJ brought to the table making the evening the party of a lifetime. Due to Tim’s experience in the club and weddings, he was able to MC the necessary details such as the Bride/Groom announcement, toast, etc while maintaining the energy of the party. Don’t let the price deter you. The cost included all necessary speakers, dance floor lighting and most importantly the peace of mind you were in good hands. In my line of business I have experienced DJ’s from all spectrums and knew when it came down to my wedding I wanted his style and energy. As a matter of fact, I even hired him for my sister’s wedding

Andrew Provine: 11/16/2014 Destination Blue Ridge Lake wedding
My wife and I hired Hip & Hitched and thoroughly enjoyed having Tim DJ our wedding. We couldn’t have asked for a more amazing event and the music was an absolute perfect compliment to the setting. We researched long and hard for something that would represent what we wanted and that would be possible since our wedding was a destination wedding. From start to finish Tim was on point. For weeks leading up to the event we threw ideas back and forth from what we were visualizing to what he had in mind. Tim went above and beyond to make sure he had a clear idea of what we were looking for. To our delight he not only put all of our ideas together seamlessly but threw some delightful surprises our way that we didn’t even think of! A class act all around!! If you’re getting married I’d highly recommend Hip & Hitched for your wedding! Thanks Tim!!!!

Tiffany Anderson 9/27/2014
Our wedding reception was a huge success because of one person: TOPHER!
During the reception we had a noise complaint that Topher handled so beautifully! At the threat of our reception falling dead only an hour in, Topher managed to get the land owner on the dance floor breaking it down to some dirty bass!!!
There are not enough words to describe how happy we are that Tim & Topher took the leap to take us on! Topher was our man the night of the wedding, and he absolutely MADE the night! We are huge music lovers so pre-wedding we gave him a pretty hefty list of “must-play”s and not only did he hit all of them but he filled the reception with amazing songs of every genre and had us and all of guests dancing all night…I mean EVERYONE! From my 80 year old grandmother to our 5 year old son! He not only took care of the reception but provided our music for the ceremony as well. He and Tim were incredibly accommodating to the fact that we had an outdoor venue not typically set up for big events…in fact, their excitement made us even more thrilled and anxious after doing our walk-through at the venue!
Without any doubt whatsoever, Hip & Hitched is worth every dime you will send their way. We had a rather modest wedding and splurged on these guys, and we would unquestionably do it all over again 1000 times over!
Topher is an amazing DJ and to top it off he puts out magnificent energy while he spins, bringing not only great beats but also big love to the dance floor. We are SO very grateful!!!
Thank you guys!!!

Here’s a link to our wedding blog with pictures of Topher and the dance floor!

Oh, and we came back after the fact and requested a copy of the wedding playlist because it was so amazing! Save yourself the time and do it in advance…you’re going to want it!

Holly 09/27/2014
We hired Tim as our DJ at the wedding, and this was a great decision. He was SO responsive throughout the planning process, even meeting with us to get to know us before the big day. We were able to trust him to play music that would keep our guests dancing all night long. He is so nice and friendly, and really made the party so much fun! The lighting was also an amazing addition to the event and made the room look AMAZING. I definitely would recommend Hip & Hitched for your big day! Can’t go wrong!

Felix & Tiff. Urban Wedding at Mason Mure ATL.
Tim is awesome. He played at our wedding and we received lots of compliments on the music. Very easy going and a great vendor to work with. Listened to our music recommendations and kept the wedding flowing. The mixes were great and he kept the dance floor alive. I would definitely recommend Tim for a wedding or party.

Amy Wilson: 7/21/2014
I cannot tell you how important music is to an event. We had an engagement party where we went with a friend of a friend and the experience was less than favorable. After playing dance songs and getting the party started to immediately making it awkward with slow songs and being asked that night if my grandpa was the DJ and I wanted to make sure the wedding was different.

I found DJ Tim through a google search and found he was featured in a Creative Loafing article and had a ton of positive reviews. When we first met he was so warm and friendly-almost like a family member I haven’t seen in a while. He gave wonderful recommendations and asked all of the right questions to get the vibe we were looking for with our wedding reception.

Tim did such an amazing job at our party-he succeeded in making the best soundtrack for our most favorite night ever. He paid attention to the dance floor and fed off of the guests, kept the music flowing and gave us the best experience. The commends and feedback we got from our guests were the complete opposite of the engagement party. We had a great time, our guests had a great time and we didn’t want the night to end.

I HIGHLY recommend Tim and Hip & Hitched to anyone looking for a fantastic event. THANK YOU!!

He was so great at reading the crowd and extremely easy to work with, not only because of his knowledge around what makes for a fun party, but also because he was just as excited to be a part of our wedding as we were about getting married! It made a huge difference having him be such a big fan of some of the ideas we came up with.

Several of our friends have used Topher for their weddings, so he was our go to guy when we got engaged. I think we gave him a good bit of freedom as to what songs to play, and he came up with some awesome mixes that kept the dance floor packed with our guests of all ages the entire reception, which was one of my wedding day dreams that came true.

We did a few non-traditional things that aren’t typical for a wedding (we announced our own wedding party with funny intros from another room and did a wedding anniversary dance vs. bouquet toss/garter toss) and Topher had no problem accommodating that.

Save yourself the hassle of googling Atlanta DJ’s and just reach out to Hip & Hitched. It will save you the time you need to plan the other important parts of your event!

Branham J. 6.2.14
Tim of Hip & Hitched is top-notch and outstanding in his field! We got married Memorial Day weekend and there were a lot of things that didn’t go off as planned. Tim was on it from the beginning and music was never one of our worries. He was flexible with the timeline and even worked in a last minute tribute with my dad who was my best man. Tim was also great at reading the crowd and knew how to get them going. The reception was so much fun we even decided to keep it going passed the time we had planned. One of our guests even sang his own praises for Tim completely unsolicited saying, “You’re the best DJ in America!!” I have to believe he meant it because he kept repeating it…in any event, I completely agree! Tim actually loves his job and it shows. Anyone can play songs but that doesn’t necessarily make them a great DJ. So if you want someone who will be a part of your wedding as well as making it fun and memorable then hire Hip & Hitched. It will be a sound investment!

Jill Simons 3/16/2014
Tim was/is fantastic! We hired him for our February wedding. We told him we wanted the dance floor packed all night long and he delivered for us. He was courteous and professional in all of our conversations and was a master of the music at the reception. Music was one of the most important elements for me (being a musician myself) so he also kindly played my playlists for the ceremony & cocktail hour without any hesitation. It was truly the best party of my life and I’m grateful Tim made it come to life! Thanks Tim!

Marry Beth Cowan: 1/30/2014 Park Tavern
Got married earlier this month. We hired Hip & Hitched after seeing their capabilities at several other events. Even though I know several other DJs personally, Hip & Hitched was my number one choice. They were thorough in helping us figure out what we wanted. And, EVERYONE at our wedding had an amazing time on the dance floor. Thanks Tim!

Joe H. Brooklyn NYC. 11/23/2013
Tim is amazing! A year later and I’m still convinced the music was the best part of the wedding. He was professional, friendly, open-minded and knew endlessly about music of all genres and was able to create unique mash-ups that made dancing irresistible to even the stodgiest of guests. He was great at reading the temperature of the room and somehow made both my mother-in-law and myself happy. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

David S. Wedding at King Plow. 11/13/2013
I have personally known Tim and his crew for the past five years. Being an operator within the nightife industry, I wanted to make sure that my wedding was covered by professionals. I immediately had Tim confirm. Knowing that he has extensive background in every genre of event/musical style/ and overall aesthitics I knew I was in good hands. My wedding was nothing short of amazing. He was on que, on time, thoughtful throughout the whole process, and covered every detail that even I didnt think of.

I knew Tim would be the professional I needed him to be, but I also chose him for his character and good heart. One of the most genuine people I have met in a long time. Working beside him or allowing him to play your wedding will be a great decision that you constantly look back on with a big smile. Make smart decisions because you cant recreate your most important of days if something should go wrong.

Stephen Roberts 7/23/2013
Your not going to find a better DJ and a nicer guy in Atlanta than Tim DeGroot (Dj tD). He and the guys with Hip and Hitched really knocked it out of the park, and I can’t say enough great things about the job they did. They know music and they know weddings. As the groom, I had few responsibilities in planning our wedding, but I had to make sure I did them well. Tim gave me, and more importantly my wife the “feel good feeling”, and set our minds at ease. He really was interested in what type of set we wanted, and made sure to get our input so that he could create the right mood and atmosphere. Throughout the night, he was able to transition from down tempo and lounge music for the cocktail hour, to rocking the dance floor harder than I think any other DJ could have. He really listened to us and made sure we got what we wanted, and filled in all the gaps in between. These guys are extremely knowledgable and personable, and the execution of the music was on point.

Michael Roch 10/4/2013
TIM Was the man ! We supplied him with a lot of music and he played it all perfectly in time. No instructions needed He dj’ed the ceremony as well and it was well timed and at a perfect volume. He played a perfect range of music for everyone (including our 80+ seniors and 10 and under kids). He was on the mic just the right amount and interacted a lot with the crowd. We upgraded to the turbo sound and lighting rig and it was well worth it. The last two hours we lowered the lights and everyone got down. He dealt with requests properly and was cordial with people in his personal zone We HIGHLY recommend Hip and Hitched for anyones wedding ! I wish we could get married again ! If we did we’d pick Hip & Hitched !

Loran Sans 10/5/2013
Finding a good DJ for our wedding was so important to us – when we spotted Tim at a friends wedding we made the decision then and there – he reads the crowd, he played all of our favorites, the dance floor was packed all night. I can personally attest to having danced the soles out of my wedding shoes. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tim again, he was a total pleasure to work with.

Jane Rosenburg. 7/27/2013
I can’t say enough good things about working with Tim at Hip & Hitched. I searched a while for a wedding DJ and was thrilled when I found Tim. From our very first conversation, I knew that he knew about music, knew how to set the tone for an event and knew how to pace the experience so that people would be dancing all night. I opted to have Tim DJ and to have a live percussionist. This was a really great decision for us and people commented all night on how awesome the music was. Besides being a super nice guy, Tim is very professional and accommodating. He gave us a timeline to fill out that broke down the entire wedding event, allowing us to pick all of our songs for the important moments. And when I didn’t know what songs to pick, he made really great choices for us. On the day of the event, everything went off without a hitch. He found songs to get EVERYONE on the dance floor. It was an awesome time. I would recommend Tim to anyone and everyone who wants an groovin’ party! And yes, spend the extra money for the disco lights and the bass!

Jordon & Michelle 6/3/2013 Farm wedding ATL Goat Fart Art center.
Tim and Hip & Hitched delivered, hands down, an A+ performance at my wedding. My wife and I couldn’t be happier about it. We hired them because we wanted a DJ component, so that we could play all the songs we wanted in full effect, without a cheesy cover band watering down the quality. But we also wanted some live music to add some energy and style. Hip & Hitched was PERFECT for this. In addition to playing all the songs we wanted, Tim has an amazing catalog of music and a great ear for mashing up good party tunes; the band fit seamlessly into this setup by enhancing the songs but not overpowering them. And Hanz did a great job of being “MC” where needed, always making sure the entire dance floor was locked into the party.

Professionally, Tim and Hip & Hitched were top notch. Tim graciously spent countless telephone hours with me in the months leading up to the event going over our event time line and song selections. And he took it upon his own to coordinate with other vendors and service providers to make sure that the entertainment vision we had for the event got completely realized. Amidst all the pre-wedding planning and anxieties, Tim was a great relief. He gave me confidence that everything would happen perfectly, and he and the band delivered fully on their promise.

I’d be happy to offer more details to anyone interested in having them at their wedding or party – I’m sure Tim can help connect us, if interested. My wife and I are dreaming up scenarios where we could have them play for us and our friends again.

Hip & Hitched videoed and DJed our wedding in Costa Rica and it was awesome. The wedding music was awesome. The dance music was awesome. And the video recording was awesome. I would recommend them to my best friend!

Matt Shoemake 5/1/2013
Christopher Taylor (Dj Topher) of Hip & Hitched DJed our wedding in Decatur. He worked that room perfectly, and made it into a great dance party. The last couple of songs/mixes were an exclamation point on our big day. Super friendly, clear communicator, and punctual – Christopher was one of the best vendors we worked with for our wedding. Hire him! You’ll be glad you did.

Kelly Willson 7/12/2012
Wow! Tim with Hip & Hitched rocked my wedding reception! Honestly, I can’t say enough about the professionalism, experience and excitement he possessed during this process. I had a very short period of time to dot my i’s and cross my t’s and he made it feel smooth as butter! He enjoys what he does and it shows! I loved every single song he played/mixed! If ya don’t know what you want to play, leave it to him to know your tastes and style! He will not disappoint! I’m very picky and I couldn’t have asked for a better DJ for my reception! You ROCK TIM! ~ Kellz

Jennifer Morgan / Dec 2011

Thanks so much Tim for helping make our wedding night such an awesome event. You were so easy to work with and did an amazing job setting the mood for dinner and then slowly increasing the tempo, I didn’t think I’d ever see that many people on the dance floor at one time. Thanks again for taking the stress of the music out of the picture and letting us focus on having an awesome time!! CK Hoffman

Amazing event thanks to you, you were awesome! Thanks again….

You are so right!!! He is awesome! At Atlanta Hemp, he was always pushing the best beats out the door at the wine tastings. Glad you enjoyed!

Chris Chambless / Out Door Summer Piedmont Park / 2011 Wedding
People keep telling us that our’s was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. In no small part due to Tim’s skills on the turntables. I don’t know who else could have rocked the dance floor better on a Sunday afternoon. Tim was cool enough to drop some tracks that were special to us, tracks I had only given him the night before, and to our amazement, was remixing them on the fly, juggling and scratching stuff like Otis Redding like you’d never heard before.
