Background - hot metal horns
Over the past ten years several members of this band have played together in various rock & roll, big band and jazz venues. We are creating a amazing full live sound (no prerecorded tracks/click tracks!!) that honors classic swing, blues and rock charts that features a vibrant horn section!
We are featuring music from Sam & Dave, Blues Brothers, Brian Setzer, James Brown, Van Morrison, Edger Winter Group, Temptations, Average White Band, Tower of Power, Lighthouse, Chicago, and current emerging artists including Mayer Hawthorne and Eli "Paperboy" Reed just to mention a few!!!
The band name hot metal horns pays tribute to our rich industrial past and honors this region and the hard working blue collar ethic that emerged up and down the rivers valleys and throughout Western Pennsylvania. We approach our music with that same level of commitment and determination.
We are striving to stay true to the original artists rendition of every song we play. On occasion we provide some tasteful additions and interpretations that compliment the essence of the musical chart.
We are bringing back the full rich sound of a tight rhythm section (Bass, Drums, Guitar, and Keyboard) and four solid lead/backup Vocalists that are complimented by three amazing horns (Saxophone, Trombone, and Trumpet).
We are creating a new and exciting appreciation of live horn music with the hot metal horns.
