Meet the team
Keys, Guitar, Vocals, DJ-HAT, Co-Owner
A founding member and tireless leader of JHAT, Bryan tickles the keys, shreds the guitar, and leads the band as part of the dynamic rhythm section behind JHAT. Bryan has been performing throughout New England since 1998 in various bands before forming Jimmy and The Hat Tricks. Known to take a lead vocal here and there, Bryan helps provide the foundation of harmony to backup JHAT's lead vocalists. When Bryan isn't playing live with the band, you can find him cueing up and spinning your favorite hits as part of DJ-HAT.
Off stage, as co-owner of Jimmy & the Hat Tricks, Bryan works behind the scenes helping to ensure all things JHAT run smoothly for both the band and our clients. When it comes time to work out the details of your event, Bryan will be one of the direct contacts you will have to ensure that your event is perfect!
Bass, Vocals, Co-Owner
Behind his West Coast cool, JHAT veteran and co-bandleader, Chris, takes care of everything on the low end with the booming notes of his bass guitar. Keeping things tight at the bottom end of the rhythm section, and throwing out some tasty vocals along the way, Chris can always be found bringing a laugh and a ton of energy to the stage that is infectious all the way to the back of the dance floor!
When he's not keeping it low for JHAT on stage, Chris is a hands-on co-owner of JHAT. Among many of his duties, a main focus for Chris is to interface with clients when it comes time to plan their big event! His knowledge and direct interaction with you will help ensure your event is even better than you imagined!
Lead Vocals, Guitar, Managing Partner
An accomplished musician who brings energy and professionalism that is part of the backbone of the group, Andy is one of the original members of JHAT. Having been with the JHAT family since 2008, primarily serving as the band's drummer, Andy has now moved up to the front line with a guitar in one hand and a microphone in the other to help lead the band and the party from there!
Away from the stage, Andy assists in helping to manage and find ways to improve the band both on stage and off.
Having an extensive background in theater and stage performance and production, Laura, a veteran of the JHAT family, brings incredible range and dynamics to every song she puts her voice to. That voice and her energy drive the band and the crowd to take the party to a whole new level! Whether it's belting out a rock anthem, or delivering a ballad that is a couple's first dance, Laura delivers the goods that have helped make JHAT a crowd favorite for many years!
In addition to her job performing on stage, off stage Laura is an expert at working with our clients and fellow vendors to make sure all “day of” activities between the band, the vendors, and the clients go smooth as silk!
