THIS IS NOT YOUR MAMA'S COVER BAND. Think Allman Brothers, followed by Britney Spears, followed by Metallica. Sounds crazy, but it works. The HOTS have gained a reputation as a band that takes songs you know and love, and makes them come alive in a whole new way...         OLD SCHOOL ROCK WITH NEW WHEELS.

Joey Fatone joins The HOTS on stage!  

12.18.20  For the second year in a row, The HOTS were invited to play Guy Fieri's birthday party in Burlingame. Last year we were joined on stage by Sammy Hagar and Chad Kroeger (Nickelback). This year, Joey Fatone of NSYNC joined us for most of the third set. Great guy, killer singer, what a blast! 


Each summer it seems like we have one weekend where we completely overdo it. This year it's the second week of July - welcome to INSANITY WEEKEND 2! We'll have 4 shows in 3 days, starting with Napa City Nights on Friday July 12th. Saturday afternoon we start with a car show benefit in Petaluma, and that night we're at the Redwood Cafe in Cotati. And we finish up on Sunday at the Petaluma Art & Garden Festival. Then we pass out. Come join the insanity!

3.9.19 The HOTS rock DISNEYLAND! 

We were invited to play the big stage at Disney's California Adventure for their Food and Wine Festival, hosted by our pal Guy Fieri (it's official, he's a fan). The stage was amazing, right in the middle of the lagoon. We did three sets during the day and one longer set at night for Guy's party. Woo hoo!!! Check out more pics in our photo gallery.

Sammy Hagar jumps on stage with The HOTS! 

12.26.19 The HOTS had an amazing night playing Guy Fieri’s giant birthday party in Burlingame. It was an epic night of costumes and characters, but here's the highlight: Sammy Hagar came up and sang with us! We rocked through the Beatle's "Birthday" for Guy. Quite a pinch-yourself moment. Right after that, Chad Kroeger from Nickelback got in on the fun, he came up and sang Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” - nuts!
