ARTIST ID: 16632

Hot Sauce is composed of five very experienced, seasoned professionals who all ended up residing in Charlotte, NC. The band includes one Charlotte native, and four more musicians from California, New Orleans, and New York. Individually they have worked with many national artists and performed in many high profile settings; Tesla, Flame, Bar Seven, James Taylor, Yes, The Moody Blues, Arlo Guthrie, Al Jarreau, Brian Wilson, the Billy Joel Broadway show, to name a few.

With a common interest in keeping their base in Charlotte, NC and a thriving market for cover bands in the region, the band decided to fill a void by fusing the genres of 70s, 80s, 90s, and current hits into one extra large bag of popcorn fun and party madness. Inspired by friends from the band Wonderbread 5 in California, Hot Sauce dons different thematic costumes for every set and insists that every audience join their party. After putting their own unique spin on this party tested formula, Hot Sauce has stormed into the corporate and private event market with a party magic that is new, fresh, and IRRESISTIBLE!!

The Hot Sauce mix of experience, professionalism, musical talent, and high energy theatric performance will turn even the most stoic CEOs into the life of the Hot Sauce party. If you want to party like rock stars, Hot Sauce is the band for you!!!

Thank you Hot Sauce Party Band for helping make our wedding reception truly perfect! We've had so many guests tell us how awesome you guys were! Your energy, enthusiasm, and the way you worked the room to make everyone feel included had us all dancing and singing along to a perfect mix of songs. We knew we were in great hands in preparation for our wedding as you listened to what we wanted and double checked that you understood our requests fully, gave great feedback on our ideas, and went above and beyond to encorporate personal touches just for our day. Everyone had an amazing time! Thank you for helping make our reception such great fun! We hope to have an opportunity to work with you again!

Anniversary Celebration

Thank you! You all were amazing! We had so many people ask "Who is the band?"! We are already talking about bringing you back next year. We loved how you interacted with the audience, kept everyone on the dance floor and played to all ages! We had ages 18-80 there and the dance floor was always packed.

Thank you again, you all are great to work with!

Independence Day Party, Social Club

Phil.....I received highly positive feedback about the performance of Hot Sauce for the 4th of July festivities at the Lake Norman Yacht Club. The dance floor was packed with all ages....and many acted numerous years below their actual age. You made me look good. I do hope for a repeat performance next year.....and have heard that the person running our Labor Day Regatta has designs on booking you guys for that event as well! Great job....and we will stay in touch.

We had such an awesome time at our wedding. It was more fun than I could have ever wished for and we owe it in large part to you and Hot Sauce. We had so many compliments about the band and I had never seen many of my family members dance before, let alone on the dance floor the entire night! You really kept the party going and we loved every second of it. If we ever have an event worthy of a band in DC or south I will be sure to get in touch with you guys. You exceeded our expectations and we felt very fortunate to have you play at our wedding. You sir, are a gentleman and a true delight to work with. Everything went so smooth and was completely too easy! I did find out why the lights went off at the end of the night. My older brother tried to do one of the flip moves Holly and I did during our first dance. When he flipped the guy in the air, the guy's feet got caught in the lights and short circuited everything. We were really lucky you guys brought the lights! It almost was like it was planned, turning the dancefloor into a club scene towards the end of the night. Lastly, I was absolutely ecstatic when you played Shout for the Encore. Really rocked the night!

Thanks again and hope to rock out to Hot Sauce in the future!
Warm regards,

Mother of the Bride

I am the mother of the bride and very excited to write this review. When my daughter got engaged 10 months ago, we knew that we wanted a live band for the reception. Not knowing a lot about bands in the North Carolina area, we turned to EastCoast Entertainment. We requested a band that would bring high energy and were able to get our guest on the dance floor. The music for an evening can make or break a party. EastCoast Entertainment sent use 5 different bands to review. We chose Hot Sauce. Many of my friends could not believe that I never went to listen to them live but chose them from listening to their music through the internet. Wow, I can't begin to tell you how wonderful the evening was and all the compliments we received from our guest. Our friends and family were on the dance floor all night long. They did not want the night to end. Hot Sauce is worth every penny and more. Thank you Hot Sauce for being apart of my daughter's wedding and making her wedding a dream come true.

You guys are the best! Thank you so much for making our wedding reception unforgettable.

I can't even begin to tell you how long it took us to find a band we liked. Chad, his mom and I went to so many concerts last summer in the Charleston area but with Scott Toole's advice, decided to book Hot Sauce just off your demo. It was the best choice we made for the whole wedding.

You guys kept the flow and party going so wonderfully. I still have guests calling me to tell me the Band was worth whatever we paid!

Thank you so very much!

Can't thank you guys enough for putting on an awesome performance for the 3rd Annual Gopher Ball supporting The First Tee of Greater Charleston. You guys kept the crowd going all night and were a blast! Everything from the variety of songs and costumes to how you all worked the room all night was perfection! You did a excellent job of helping promote the cause and raise awareness for the organization which was very much appreciated. Thanks for the support and we hope to get you back to Charleston for another event!

Corporate Party

Hot Sauce is the best band we have had at an event in years! Not only are they polished, professional, and amazingly, talented musicians- they are a blast! These guys party right along with you, and they know how to make a party fun. They came in with a positive attitude, ready to work. They were flexible and accommodating all night long. They kept it low key during cocktails, and knew exactly what to do to fill the dance floor when we were ready. They literally left our crowd begging for more! Hot Sauce is an excellent party band! Those five guys made our event a roaring success! I really appreciate what they did for us, and give them my highest recommendation. They are a great group of guys and a superb band!

Private Party

They were great to work with... extremely nice guys, very professional, happy and talkative during setup (in the best way), great audience interaction and super fun to watch perform. I heard from more than one person that they sounded fantastic and played a great mix of songs. Thanks so much for helping me with this suggestion, they were great to work with on Saturday. Thanks again for all of your help!

Mr. Sullivan - I'm Justin P's father. While I surely don't have the experience with bands that my son does, if there is a group out there that is remotely in the same class as you guys....I would have to see it and hear it before I could ever believe it. I just wanted to thank you and the other members of your group for the role that you played in helping make my peerless son's wedding the memorable event that he deserved. Also, rest assured that the memory of my precious daughter on the dance floor with the leader of the band.... is a memory I will carry with me.

Let me first say that words cannot express what it meant to my parents and I to turn around and see you holding my sister's hand and dancing and singing with her. You and the band are a truly amazing group of people.

Next, you guys KILLED IT!!! Absolutely KILLED IT!! From the very beginning to the end y'all had the dancefloor packed from start to finish, exactly what we wanted!! There wasn't a single person in the room who did not complement the band, y'all even had everyone yelling encore at the end of the set...that doesn't happen at weddings! During the last song, Melissa and I turned around to take it all in, and it was amazing to see the dancefloor packed with people. I tell ya, we have a lot of friends getting married this summer and i'm pretty sure you guys made them very nervous, because y'all set the bar VERY high!!! Don't be surprised if they end up calling you!

I cannot thank you and the rest of the band enough for being willing to move the date and doing whatever it took to make this happen for Melissa and her family. You certainly didn't have to but it sure says a lot about who you guys are as people that you did.

Thank you soo much and please let me know if there is anywhere I can formally write you guys a recommendation, I'll be glad to do as many as necessary. I hate we didn't get to talk more before and after but I'll be keeping up with you guys and hope to see y'all at another party soon.
