THIS IS NOT YOUR MAMA'S COVER BAND. Think Beatles, 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.

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!

Fire Relief Benefit TUESDAY DEC 18th 

 

This is why we love Sonoma County. TUESDAY DEC 18th The HOTS will be part of a benefit show for fire victims of Butte County. Four bands - music starts at 6:30 and we'll wrap up the night around 10:15. Come out to the Flamingo, enjoy the music and help our neighbors. PEACE

 

 

INSANITY WEEKEND! 

 

Get ready for INSANITY WEEKEND with THE HOTS! We start on Friday with HOTS GOLF. That's right, the four of us will be hacking our way through 18 holes of sand traps and tall grass in our first annual golf outing. Why golf? Cause it'll be HILARIOUS that's why. 

On SATURDAY, we play the UKIAH BEER AND WINE GARDEN from noon to 4pm. We always have a blast in Ukiah. And ya know, beer. 

From there we hightail it back to Petaluma to play at THE BIG EASY at 9:30. We're always punchy when we play two shows in a day, so you'll likely see the HOTS unchained, don't miss it. Chris Newton opens the show at 8pm. 

Then on SUNDAY we play the NOVATO HARVEST FESTIVAL! We'll be on a big stage in front of Trek Winery between Sweetser and Vallejo. Opening the festival is Third Rail from 2-3pm. We play 3:30-4:30, and our pals Soul Section will wrap things up from 5-7pm.

Let's test out some chaos theory. For the first time, The HOTS will share the stage with The Dictator Tots! And just to keep things interesting, drummer Sean England will be playing with both bands (HOTS drummer Jed Friesen needs a night off - he's raising a 2-year-old and re-modeling a house). Come see what happens! The Dictator Tots start the show at 8pm.
