ABOUT

We are a cover band based in the Herndon/Reston, Virginia area that has been together on and off for quite some time, most recently under the name "The White Hot". A few years ago we were playing casual, fun gigs around the NOVA area. Our previous lead singer moved out of the area and the band went on hiatus, but now we’re looking to pull it back together with new members. One would handle lead vocals and ideally add some additional instrumentation. The other would play keyboards to help fill out our sound.

The members of the band all have full time jobs, families, etc. so this is not a commercial operation. We’re in it for the enjoyment of playing and performing, but need someone interested in participating, coming on time, coming prepared, and ready to help with the marketing and securing gigs.

The songs that have made up our repertoire have required a male who is comfortable in the tenor range. Think Paul McCartney, Tom Johnston (Doobie Brothers), Paul Stanley, Lindsey Buckingham, or Brandon Flowers. Interested female singers, please inquire as well. We’d be open to taking it in a new direction.

In addition to lead vocals, we are interested in additional instruments to fill out the sound and increase the scope of songs we could perform well.

We have a private but spacious and well-equipped practice space in the Herndon/Reston, Virginia area.

Influences

We hope you would have a broad appreciation and interest in all kinds of popular music and can have an open mind as we choose songs and arrangements.

Our repertoire has included songs from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. We have leaned heavily into rock and classic rock.

However, we would like to somewhat reconfigure what the band does. We’ve been through the process of going out with deep cuts we really like and found audiences don’t necessarily feel the same way, so we’d be trying to strike that balance that will be creatively fulfilling for us and provide a good time for the crowd. We’d also like to establish a more unique band identity and aesthetic. We would hope you can be a part of this pivot.

Members Of Band

The band currently has two guitar players who have alternated on keyboards, a bass player and drummer. We have all contributed backing vocals.
