The Hot & Heavy Band plays high-energy guitar driven blues. The band hails from Western Massachusetts and is influenced by a unique array of artists to form their sound. While Jeannie loves the great female blues vocalists like Etta James and Bonnie Raitt, the guys lean more towards Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton for their inspiration! When the band listens to music together the Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa collaborations are the favorite. The music from those CDs satisfies everyone’s taste and as a result the band covers several of those songs.
