Grab your honey bunny and get out on the dancefloor! Vincent Vega and the Hateful 8 performed Surf, Soul & Rock’n’Roll songs from Quentin Tarantino’s cult classic films like Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. 

Think Chuck Berry, Al Green, Dick Dale, The Ventures, Dusty Springfield, Nancy Sinatra, Johnny Cash and Aretha Franklin. This band is not messing around - every performance includes a horn section, 3 vocalists, drums, bass, 2 guitars, keyboards and percussion. If your wedding is just you and 200 of your closest friends, you should be thinking about getting Vincent Vega and the Hateful 8.
