Front-woman Shelby Muniz, guitarist Aria Hurtado, bassist Tana Snyder, and drummer Kelsey Caselden have mutated into the ultimate all-girl band, and they're on a rock-n'-roll rampage throughout California! Hoity-Toity's music is an upbeat, tenacious mix of punk, alternative, indie, and funk, combining aggressive rock riffs with catchy pop melodies and a groove that makes you want to bounce off the walls. The band has shared the stage with the likes of 70's punk pioneer Alice Bag, riot grrrl legend Alison
Wolfe (Bratmobile, Sex Stains, Partyline), and glam rock icons Great White. In 2015, the band was selected out of over 4,000 applicants to be one of 6 participants to play at the LA House of Blues for the Bringin’ Down the House showcase put on by the House of Blues Music Forward Foundation and LiveNation; they have also performed twice at the Anaheim House of Blues. In August of 2016, they released their self-titled debut EP when they played the Pomona date of the Vans Warped Tour. In 2017 they released their single "Opus" which has since surpassed 10,000 streams on Spotify. On June 30, 2019 the band released their sophomore EP "Not Your Kind, featuring more complex layered instrumentation and a wider array of influences and shifting genres from straight-up pop punk to hard-hitting funk rock to groovy latin pop.
The band's name, Hoity-Toity (pronounced hoy-tee-toy-tee) is defined as "having or showing the insulting attitude of people who think that they are better, smarter, or more important than other people". The name is meant to poke fun at the stereotype of the snobby, egotistical rock star, further symbolized by the raised pinky depicted on the cover of their debut EP.
