Hot Wax



Austin's premier show band, Hot Wax, has provided top quality entertainment for the last 20 years! They are, in essence, a live celebration of classic soul music.
Hot Wax has attained continued success due to, first, a genuine passion for the music and style of showmanship from the 50s and 60s. Great names like The Platters, The Temptations, The Supremes, The Isley Brothers, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight, Sam and Dave, and Aretha Franklin were icons that guided the style of Hot Wax. The vocal harmonies and powerful leads of this classic music requires multiple vocalists capable of singing the back-up parts accurately. Hot Wax has been blessed over the years to have had some of the best singers in Austin perform with the band.
And second, unlike most bands, Hot Wax stimulates the crowd both acoustically and visually. Although the musical and vocal prowess is paramount, a singer for the Hot Wax band must be able to dance as well. Practically every song is choreographed. This boisterous interactive merrymaking, coupled with hard work and sweat generated by the choreography, is what people remember. Of course, none of this is possible without the hard working musicians of Hot Wax, each of whom are seasoned professionals who have mastered their craft.
Hot Wax is a 11 member band with costume changes and choreography who will continue to play a full tank of high octane dance music which will keep you moving till you drop. This is participant fueled fun!
