The Hip Replacements is a musical act that every audience falls in love with. Lori Gretz’ silky smooth lead vocals are truly, in a word, breathtaking. Barry Gretz’ guitar playing runs the gamut from finger-style delicacy to hard-driving rock anthems, and his vocals harmonize beautifully with Lori’s. Together, their sound sets them several notches above your typical bar or wedding band. The songs they sing are also guaranteed audience pleasers, being the best-loved popular hits of the last seventy years, including Sinatra, Cole Porter, Patsy Cline, the Ronettes, the Beatles, CSN&Y, James Taylor, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, Eagles, U-2, Garth Brooks, and Norah Jones, among many, many others. Their sets can have you laughing over memories of “the good old days”, up on the dance floor, and often both!
The Hip Replacements perform as a duo, and they are joined by bassist/ vocalist/ DJ Bill Schaedler for a show with even more beauty, excitement and musical fun. For the full palette of rock and roll styles, they add drums and/or lead guitar. Each show is hand-crafted to satisfy the preferences of that particular audience.
