The Strictly Hip - Masters of the Music of The Tragically Hip
The Strictly Hip - Masters of the Music of The Tragically Hip
The Strictly Hip are the Masters of the Music of The Tragically Hip. The Strictly Hip have spent years and thousands of performances respectfully and accurately recreating the music of Canada's most popular rock band with painstaking attention to musical detail.

To refer to The Strictly Hip as simply a "Tragically Hip Tribute Band" would be imprudent. Tribute acts wear costumes and wigs and speak with cartoon-ish accents. The Strictly Hip have adopted a performance approach similar to that of the popular "Classic Albums Live"...music FIRST. The music of The Tragically Hip is performed passionately, respectfully and with reverence to its creators. It's a fun and nostalgic adventure through The Hip's storied catalog of favourites. No gimmicks required.

Originally conceived in 1994 in St. Catharines, Ontario, The Strictly Hip is now based in Buffalo New York performing for The Hip's rabid American fan base. The Strictly Hip regularly perform to sold out venues on both sides of the border and have created a loyal fan base of their own.

From the Lap Steel Guitar swells of "Bobcaygeon" to "Wheat King's" loon call prelude, The Strictly Hip bring their multi-instrument skills to the stage. And, yes, the band uses an actual hand operated loon call on "Wheat Kings". Never an audio sample. With the assistance of additional musicians and instrumentation, the band is able to perform track-for-track, near note perfect, renditions of complete Tragically Hip albums live.

But first and foremost, The Strictly Hip are a rock-n-roll band. Equally at home in a sweaty rock bar and on legendary concert stages. Good music. Good times. They are evangelists for the music of Canada's most popular rock band. The Strictly Hip are the Masters of the Music of The Tragically Hip.
