HipTrip is a Chicago based funk band that got its start playing house parties around Lincoln Park and Lakeview in early 2012. The popularity of these parties led to bigger and better performances-mostly at underground loft spaces-with a strangely large following of young people who just want to dance. Without using the term ‘jam band’ HipTrip achieves all that a good funk band should do; laying down the groove and inspiring a crowd to get up and dance! Influenced by the local Chicago funk scene, The J.B.’s, Hiatus Kaiyote, Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, Chick Corea, Snarky Puppy, and with originals composed by every member of the group, HipTrip is sure to get the party going.
