Hot Buttered Elvis

What is Hot Buttered Elvis? Three musicians and three words: fast, fun, furious!

Hot Buttered Elvis is fronted by Washington Area Music Assoc (WAMA) “Wammie” award winning vocalist/guitarist Scott Barber and features distinguished national performers’ drummer Rob San Pietro (formerly of The Meatmen) and bass player Shawn Sharifi.

Hot Buttered Elvis has been kicking ass and taking names for over a decade with their hard rock shenanigans, winning over crowds with their tight musicianship, one-of-a-kind stage show and notoriously over-the-top antics. How many bands are willing to sport costumes and wigs only to open for themselves as one of a variety of “alter ego” bands? How many bands go that extra mile with a stage show featuring sirens, strobe lights, fog machines, television sets...even a towering Wheel-of-Fortune-style wheel encouraging audience members to interact? Hot Buttered Elvis does it, and they do it on a nightly basis, winning fans worldwide by creating a truly one-of-a-kind event.

In short: when these guys get together, expect the unexpected!

But Hot Buttered Elvis is more than just window dressing. Hot Buttered Elvis are all top-notch, touring veterans of the music scene who take their craft seriously. Whether it’s creating fun versions of popular cover songs (as heard nationally on NBC TV) or writing/performing selections from their own original music catalog (as heard on "The Howard Stern Show”), Hot Buttered Elvis have the chops and versatility to deliver the goods musically AND visually, no matter the venue or occasion.

So next time you’re looking for something fresh and fun on the live music scene, give Hot Buttered Elvis a try. You won’t be disappointed.

This review of a live HBE performance from Way North of Nashville sums up the HBE experience:
"Hot Buttered Elvis. Yes, you read that correctly. When listening to a band with such a colorful name, it’s best not to have any idea of what you’re about to hear. Liken it to Alice in Wonderland falling through the rabbit hole. When she hit bottom, she discovered things labeled “eat me” and “drink me,” not knowing what would happen when she did. Fast forward to the tea party and let’s just say The Beatles have been hired as entertainment. They begin playing their classic hit, “Come Together,” and suddenly Metallica shows up and crashes the scene. Not wanting to cede their gig, the two bands engage in a psychedelic musical tug of war. Sharing the stage, you now have an understanding of the music of Hot Buttered Elvis. Open your mind and enjoy the ride! The probability of this band sounding like anyone else is zero. They are an entertaining experience that must be seen to be appreciated."
