About the Band

The New Hip Replacements is a high-energy, 7-piece cover band that plays a tasty range of horn-driven R&B/soul faves, blues classics, Motown funk, and raunchy, raspy, hip-shakin’ “grit rock.” Your crowd is sure to have a blast––and to boogie.

The band puts out a wicked-fun wall of sound with our vocalist/trumpeter, saxophone man, keyboardist, two guitarists and a kick-ass bass and drums rhythm section. We’re perfect for birthday or anniversary bashes, office holiday or retirement parties, music halls, bars, wineries, street fairs, festivals, weddings, bar mitzvahs, divorce celebrations, or brisses.

Led by front man and trumpet player Rick Brandon (known to his fans as “Raucous Rico”) you’ll swing to vocal stylings that the Sonoma Index-Tribune says “have more gravel than a cement truck.” Read all about it.

The band is based in California’s North Bay, and plays in and around Mill Valley, Oakland, Sonoma/Napa and Grass Valley/Nevada City.
