I'm in the band "Hot As A Pepper" and we provide fun, funky dance-able music for your party, event, function, festival or venue (bar, club, restaurant).

We play a variety of music from many genres, like rock, funk, disco, Carolina beach, country and even reggae.

We love corporate events such as grand openings, or reunions, wedding receptions or just about any place that live music entertainment is desired!
