““Hip Kitty is an exciting New Rock Band with great songs and an equally great Live Show. Their energy is infectious. They have worked hard at being in the Top of their class in the Nashville area. I feel they will be in the next group of up and coming bands out of the area. If you have a chance to see Hip Kitty, don’t miss out, they may be on their way up and out of here very soon!””

“Hip Kitty will hit you hard with good 'ole rock & roll and throw a bit of attitude in there as well. You're guaranteed to have a great time and hear great music every single time you see Hip Kitty on stage, and you'll definitely be coming back for more! ”

Jerrdog Local Licks Producer at Fort Wayne's Rock Station 98.9 The Bear

“Hip Kitty has been Rockin' the Troops for a few years now. They are a solid group with an awesome sound. You will find them on HOOAH!!!! Radio and if you don't hear them... ASK! We love Hip Kitty!!”

Bette Carl, DJ on HOOAH!!!! Radio

“Justice and the music business are two things that don't often go together. sometimes, the cream doesn't always find its' way to the top of the coffee cup. However, call me a dreamer....but sometimes I think talent is just a little too obvious to be ignored. Sometimes, you hear something for the first time, and you know that you have got the ingredients for a remarkable career. Call it a gut feeling, but I think that Hip Kitty qualifies as such a circumstance. Based in the Nashville area, this group lends credence to the fact that Music City is more than just country music. Jen Halverson, Mike Goncalves, Mark Chrisawn and Rich Schiavo are a Rock band - with a capital R. They are a pretty remarkable one, at that. The musicianship on each track is first-rate. The guitar screams, the bass booms, and the drums provide the beat...to the ninth degree! Simply put, I think it's safe to head to Vegas and make a bet on this group.”

"Hip Kitty is one of the hottest new acts that I have worked with in quite some time. They have their own unique inventive sound. It's like a mix between "Old school rock" with killer female lead vocals, huge guitar and bass sounds with solid drums. I think we are going to see great things happening with Hip Kitty. Be sure to check 'em out!"

"It's a pleasure to have Hip Kitty performing for Disney Entertainment. They're a heavy-hitting, hard rock band with a stage presence and personality that makes them a favorite among our concert goers."

Dave Westerskov, Talent Buyer Disney Entertainment - Kissimmee, FL

" Hip Kitty is a band for the masses. You can bring these cats anywhere. They know how to rock all walks of life and most importantly are good to the rest of us out there doing the same thing. That speaks volumes about them as musicians and people."

"When you go to a Hip Kitty show you're guaranteed to have a good time. The energy that the band generates and the genuinely KICK-ASS rockin' atmosphere they produce on stage is something that harkens back to a day when rock and roll was what it should be.....FUN! Check them out and you won't be disappointed."

Chris MacMillan/Engineer-Producer Disneyworld, Pleasure Island, Kissimmee, FL

"Hip Kitty is sure that their audience has as much fun listening or singing along with them as they do on stage during any performance. I count them in my top level of touring acts." Tampa, FL

Jane McKee/Agent,Owner Jane's World Entertainment, Tampa, FL

"Hip Kitty is a very hard working and extremely professional band to work with. We are thrilled to have them on our roster as they are one of our most requested acts."

Joe Guida/Agent More Music Group, Virginia Beach, VA

“Wicked lyrics, supreme insturmental skills, personal touches, the Art of War is the manifestation of the mastermind that is Hip Kitty. The special thing about The Art of War is not only that it has personal appeal and quality that has been lost in many of the mainstream styles, but it manages to be funny, sad and profound at the same time, littered with bursts of energy and happiness - kind of like life, wouldn't you agree? ”

Danielle Shaw

“I came across a rock band on Myspace that I really like called Hip Kitty. After getting their CD I have to say I'm impressed. They are reminiscent of the singer songwriter error of rock with thoughtful words and powerful melodies mixed with a really good dose of rough edged playing, a singer that kicks, and production quality that is top notch. They know how to write, they've mastered their instruments and I'm betting we'll be seeing more of them on the music scene. If Hip Kitty doesn't make it big, I'LL EAT A ROLL OF TOILET PAPER! ”
