The Hook Up is a dirty rock & roll trio formed in Appleton, Wisconsin. Midwestern guys who eat too many cheeseburgers, call drinking fountains bubblers, and make impactful music. Driven with compelling hooks and lyrical density, their tunes will take the listener on a musical journey.
Harry Right and Nicholas Rodello are the dynamic duo that make up the backbone of the group. With two lead singers the band offers original music that infuses their unique styles, while still feeling like cohesive works. It's as if Weezer, Foo Fighters and The Raconteurs melded together to create The Hook Up. The band's personality, swagger, and musicianship shine through while they drop waves of inspired sounds. Their ability to not only perform original work, but tasteful renditions of cover tunes ensures the audience is in for a wild night.
The Hook Up won the Wisconsin stage of the Cumulus Media Next2Rock 2017 competition, and has shown their strength in the Fox Valley music scene. With many festivals under their belt including Mile of Music, Summerfest, and Brat Fest the band shows they are comfortable on stages of any size. The Hook Up has also had success with song placements for television. Working through Cherry Pit Studios and Licensing the band has had music placed on "Restaurant Impossible," "Fox Sports Net," and "Smackdown." Who knows where you may hear or see The Hook Up next?
