Hot Shots Bio
HotShots has been entertaining audiences with their unique comedic style since January of 2004. Described as a combination of The Rat Pack meets the Marx Brothers, the quartet is always surprising audiences with something new and unexpected. The South Florida-based foursome has been invited to perform at corporate events, private functions, weddings, collegiate outreach festivals, Barbershop Harmony Society conventions and international vocal competitions. They have done everything from warming up the audience from center court at the USTA Davis Cup tennis tournament, to a command performance for the Governor of Utah, and of course, crooning some good-ole barbershop in front of their hometown crowd.
The four HotShots, James, Andrew, Paul and Mitch, take pride in entertaining with a wide variety of a vocal styles from traditional Barbershop Quartet music to contemporary a cappella – always with a flair for comedy and drama. Their spoofs on current events leave people rolling in the aisles (which can be a problem since many of their shows are at bowling alleys).
HotShots is proud to be a part of the Barbershop Harmony Society helping to preserve and promote the Barbershop style. As active promoters of the Young Men in Harmony program, they have worked to teach high school students, college students, and music educators about a cappella singing. They have assumed roles as mentors, clinicians and most importantly, friends to the younger generation.
Be on the lookout for more great stuff from this exciting, if not slightly warped quartet. You never know what they’ll do next!
