When they first got together as a musical ensemble they went by "The Gary Hempsey Band" or something similar. They all use to have long hair, smoked weed, and could play any song anyone could remember from the 60s. The band motto is "If someone knows part of a song, we'll follow them to the gates of hell".
The music lovers kept asking for them at the Wharf. When's "That Hippie Band" coming back? The name stuck, the rest is golden age of the 60s musical history. Don't miss That Hippie Band - bring your own weed.
