Strictly Hip is a full time professional band that has perfomed across the United States and Canada as a headliner at festivals, concert clubs and special events. Many performance and travel options are available for local, regional, and national engagements.

Based in Buffalo, New York, Strictly Hip is a national touring band focused on the music of Canada's most popular act, "The Tragically Hip."

Originally conceived in St. Catharines, Ontario in 1994, Strictly Hip has grown to become one of western New York's biggest and most popular nightclub acts. The band has been awarded Buffalo Music Awards nine times as 'Top Tribute Act' and was inducted into the inagural class of 'Buffalo Music Awards Hall of Achievement' in 2010. Lead vocalist Jeremy Hoyle has been awarded BMA's for 'Top Male Vocalist' three times including 2010. Please see adjoining resume of achievments and accolades.

In 2011, a Strictly Hip show has evolved into a revue of music that brings back memories of the glory days of Toronto's '102.1 CFNY.' With music from 'Lowest of The Low,' 'Our Lady Peace,' 'The Trews,' 'The Cure,' 'Oasis,' 'REM,' and much much more. Strictly Hip is a hip alternative rock band that harkens back to when 'alt rock' meant something. The band has a cool image that is straight off of a contemporary concert stage and the performance abilities to match.
