Oh my gosh, Hot Sauce was AMAZING! We had such a blast last night and Hot Sauce truly made the night so memorable. They kept the crowd so engaged and were just so fun! We didn’t stop dancing all night. We are absolutely going to write a great review! It was so wonderful working with everyone and we will absolutely recommend you all. Again, we are unbelievably happy with the band. They were just so excellent! Thank-you!

Hot Sauce brought the party y'all. We thought it was a little risky picking a band we had never heard live, based on reviews and recorded songs. It was the best decision we made. They were AMAZING. Every single guest was on the dance floor and every single guest has told me since the wedding how amazing the band was. If you're looking for a band for your event, book Hot Sauce. You will not regret it.

I can't tell you how many of our guests told me at the end of the night how great you all were! People were blown away by y'all's performance and talent! I can confidently say you all made the night! Also, as I told you on the night of our wedding, you were the most responsive person in all of the people we had involved in the wedding. Again, thank you so so much.

WOW! We are still recovering from an incredible, fantastic, fun filled weekend, and most of the thanks goes to Hot Sauce! That was the nicest, most thoughtful group of guys. They were so much fun and were always smiling! Our guests are still asking us where we found them! Thank you for all of your help leading up to the wedding! Sarah and I couldn’t have been any happier with our decision to book them!

Thank you so much for your help picking Hot Sauce! They were ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!! They were so easy to work with and easy to contact. They learned our songs for the ceremony and reception. Everyone got on the dance floor for most of the night. All of our guests keep calling us to say how much they loved the band. I am trying to think of excuses to throw another big party just so we can have them again. They definitely exceeded expectations and were wonderful to have! 10 out of 10 stars. A+ experience. I was blown away.

Hi Hot Sauce, I’m not sure if you remember me, my husband (Ben) and I got married at the Sutherland on June 11th of this year. I’ve been meaning to sit down and write this for MONTHS.. I’m so sorry it’s taken this long!! This summer has flown, and we still have yet to write our thank you notes.. but I knew this one had to be our first. It’s pretty impressive how quickly you forget all of the small things you sweat over throughout the wedding planning process. All things that don’t cross you mind a single time on your actual wedding day. The day goes by in the blink of an eye and it’s virtually impossible to remember every single detail. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, we were told the wedding is for friends and family, and the honeymoon is for us. We were also told that we’d spend so much time talking to guests, and being pulled in every direction that we shouldn’t be too disappointed if we weren’t able to relax and enjoy our day fully. We thankfully did not have that experience and we have you to thank for that. THANK YOU from the bottom of of hearts for making our wedding day such a blast! We still to this day reminisce on our reception and how truly grateful we are that we were able to relax, and enjoy it fully while dancing all.night.long. I’ve lost count at this point of the number of people that reached out to us complimenting our band selection and saying it was the most fun they’d had at a wedding in years. Three months later you all are still a discussion topic amongst our friends, when we get together they still talk about how much fun they had. Your stage presence, your song selection, you guys exceeded any expectations we could have had. We had an engaged couple bummed that they had already booked a band for their wedding day😂. Thank you for keeping everyone out on the dance floor (even our pastor!!!!) not every band can do that. When we’re asked what our favorite part of the day was our answer is always the same, “Our band!!!”. We joke all the time that we should get married again just to hear you guys play!!!

-Savannah K.-

The guys were great! They had the guests on the dance floor the whole night! The crowd cheered them on for an encore and can't stop raving about them! It was super easy to work with them and even with a last minute venue change due to weather, they just rolled with the plan and made things super simple. 10/10 would recommend again!

Hot Sauce was on Fire! They knew exactly how to bring the crowd to the dance floor and keep them there! Loved their Energy & Interaction with the party! Highly recommend the added horn piece. Their communication leading up to the wedding was Fantastic, handled all of our requests! Spice up your event with some Hot Sauce!

Hot Sauce was absolutely, completely, 100% (all the things!) a DREAM! The band was professional, fun, and made our intimate, 30 person wedding feel like a true party. I scream sang with the lead singer and the guitarist made a few surprise trips into the crowd to jam out. Hot Sauce will forever be one of the reasons 11/11/20 is my favorite day.


Nov 11, 2020

We had a great time! The band was fantastic and the guys were great! Highly recommend them.


Oct 10, 2020

The Hot Sauce Band exceeded our expectations! All of our guests were raving at how awesome they were! I have NEVER seen my dad dance and he was out on the dance floor busting his moves. We couldn’t have been happier and would recommend them to anyone wanting a talented and fun band!


Oct 03, 2020

You guys were great! You really made the event a huge success and all of the guests loved your performance! Thank you so much!

Reid with ECE helped us find a band for our wedding and it was a painless process. He sent us several options in our price range, and we ultimately went with Hot Sauce. Hot Sauce was awesome. We got so many compliments on the band, and we really appreciated their flexibility during these crazy times. Nothing but positive things to say.


Aug 08, 2020

HOT SAUCE was FANTASTIC! Everyone at the wedding danced the night away. The comment we heard over and over was, “what a great band”! Our son, who has been in a few bands, said that the quality of the music was exceptional! And what was really appreciated, was that all the members of HOT SAUCE, were genuinely interested in making our event the best event ever! We can’t thank you enough!

-Kristina L-

Mar 07, 2020

Thank you to Hot Sauce for helping us dance and sing with our loved ones on the best night of our lives! We really enjoyed the band at our wedding. They were open to several suggestions such as a New Year’s countdown and dance floor props to help our vision come true. We received a lot of compliments on the high energy level of the band and range of songs performed. Ideally I could have done less “slow” songs at the beginning of the night, but I know our guests appreciated the variety (just a personal preference). Thanks again to Hot Sauce and ECE for an amazing night!

I have no words to describe how AMAZING Hot Sauce was on our wedding night (9/14/19)! Wow, it was truly an absolute dream. Every single one of our guests was on the dance floor the whole night and didn't want the night to end. The band engaged all of our guests of all ages and played every single song of different genres we requested. Not only was the music UNREAL, they also announced our bridal party and the order of events flawlessly. My husband and I sent them a recorded version of our first dance song and it went off without a hitch using their system and they made our parent dances SO SPECIAL and customized. Hot Sauce definitely knows how to work a room and we can't wait to hire them for all of our family events in the future!!!

Book this band now!! They were so, so fun. Mike's communication leading up to the wedding day was top-notch and the fact that they were willing to learn a unique cover of a song for our first dance was extremely generous of them. We asked that our special dance songs be kept short (around 1 min 30 sec and that was no problem for Hot Sauce, they drifted in and out of the songs perfectly. Hot Sauce engaged with our guests and really helped get and keep the party started. We didn't give Hot Sauce much guidance on what songs to play or to not play but somehow they were able to nail it! They are super good at reading the room and made sure to keep the party going all night long. Also, their social media engagement is an added bonus- these guys are fun!

If you don't book Hot Sauce for your upcoming wedding, you're nuts! They MADE our wedding reception. I have never been to a wedding where the majority of the guests stayed on the dance floor the entire night! Our wedding photographer said that he had never felt the floor rock as much as it did the night of our wedding (and he's done several weddings at our reception location). Mike was so easy to communicate with beforehand, he was very responsive and answered all of my questions quickly. They even learned our first dance song and played it for us at the reception, so special! THANK YOU Hot Sauce for everything! We had an absolute BLAST!!! I’ve had family and friends texting and calling me the last two weeks saying how awesome ya'll were! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our wedding reception one for the books!

It poured down rain all day and you guys really helped our guests forget about the weather and enjoy themselves! On top of that, Mike was so kind and flexible with us and our song requests. I couldn't be happier with how the day turned out, and the party was a huge success thanks to you all! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

When my husband and I were planning our wedding, we knew one of our main priorities was the music. Hiring Hot Sauce Band was the easiest and best decision we could have made. We got to know them before the wedding by going to their shows and come wedding day, they felt like an extension of our family. The dance floor was packed the entire night and the energy in the room was simply magical, thanks to these guys. We hired Jason to play keys during our ceremony and Mike and Ethan to play an acoustic set during the cocktail hour - both of which were wonderful. They even learned a song for my husband’s dance with his mother. Our guests have not stopped raving about the band at our wedding and it was a party we will not soon forget! We look forward to hiring Hot Sauce again in the future and to continuing to follow them around town. Thank you guys for helping to make our wedding the best day of our lives!

Hot Sauce was an incredible band and I highly recommend them for any event. They created the exact vibe I was expecting for our party. Their range of music is amazing and they were true professionals. I had so many of my friends ask where I found them and commented how good they were. One friend said he had thought the "radio" was turned on given the band sounded just like the song. I would definitely hire Hot Sauce again in the future or refer them to anyone that ask. I wish them continued success!

Hot Sauce was fantastic!! They did an incredible job. People were on the dance floor as soon as the event started, which is a rarity! It was packed on the dance floor the whole time they played. I only wish they could have played longer. They had to stop earlier than expected due to outdoor noise ordinances. In any event, all the guys were very nice and were enjoyable to work with. They responded quickly to any of my requests and set-up and break-down went by seamlessly. I talked to them after they performed, and they said it was one of the best crowds they played for. Hoping we gave them some promotion in exchange! I will definitely be recommending them to friends for future events. Words from our photographer -- "Hot Sauce Band was absolutely phenomenal, BTW - one of the best cover bands I’ve heard ever; the singer has tremendous range, and the rest of the band had awesome energy as well!"

Everything at the wedding was perfect. Hot Sauce was great, and had the guests dancing all night.

We are very glad that we picked them. :) Thanks for everything!

You guys were great and we have gotten nothing but positive feedback regarding "the band". The coordinator at the Omni (Alison) sent us a message and noted how much she loved you guys so hopefully she will pass that on to potential future clients :) You were wonderful to work with which was awesome.

Hot Sauce was Amazing! They were very accommodating, they were incredibly friendly, they did a fantastic job pronouncing my wife's and her parents names (which are Chinese), and the music was great! They went above our expectations, and they were incredibly professional. I would recommend them for sure to future parties and groups who need a band. And I will keep you in mind for sure for any upcoming events, or if anyone asks me for a recommendation in your area. Thanks for everything!

Corporate Event
Dec 14, 2016

Holy cow – Kristen and I are still recovering from the wedding weekend but the VERY FIRST follow-up we wanted to send out is about Hot Sauce. 

Hot Sauce exceeded our expectations and wishes in every way possible.  They were professional, responsive, flexible and insightful during the planning phase.  Their equipment and lights were set up early, and looked great and un-cluttered.  They nailed the announcements and first/parent dance songs.  They wasted no time in between songs and transitions.   They were both classy and energetic on stage.  The music, both instruments and vocals, was spot-on.  They stayed true to the recordings while also adding the perfect amount of live flavor.  Their set list had the perfect mix of variety and our preferences, and kept the party building minute after minute.  We could not keep people off of the dance floor if we had tried – ages 20 to 70 were dancing and singing along consistently, including my close friends (and me) who NEVER usually dance for more than one or two songs – at least 20 people were always on the dance floor and often many more.  They always looked like they were having fun.  Their volume was perfect – guests away from the stage could talk comfortably and guests near the stage caught the energy.  They helped announce our dinner and sparkler exit perfectly.  The singer interacted with and ventured out into the crowd on some songs.

They even let me, my dad’s band and my friends sit in on a few numbers.  They made our wedding celebration especially memorable and special and it would not have been the same without them.

In high school and college I was a drummer in a party band that played all sorts of private functions, and I was expecting to find at least one thing I could criticize.  I found nothing.

Wanted to just pass back our thanks to you in helping us with booking them!

Hot Sauce was great and the perfect choice for our wedding.  They were great to work with and did an amazing job as our wedding band.  They kept everyone engaged and on the dance floor which is exactly what we were hoping for.  It was a great party!

We received many compliments from our family and friends on how great they were. We definitely would recommend them.

We would also like to see them again if they have any upcoming public events.


Sep 10, 2016

Just wanted to thank you again for such a great time last weekend. I'm glad the Duke fed and treated you well. You guys definitely brought the energy, talent, and sound we were hoping for. I can't tell you how many people have told us that you guys really made the wedding a next level event.  I feel like we're bonded to you guys now in magical way. Our wedding wouldn't have been as amazing with any other band.   Hot Sauce is the only party band I'd recommend. I really appreciated how attentive you guys were before the wedding in making sure every detail was to our liking. It really made us relaxed and at ease on our wedding day knowing everything was completely under control on your end.  And the costumes were the real icing on the cake :).  I'd ONLY recommend you guys going forward. I'm sure we'll cross paths again one way or another.

I'm the mom of a bride who selected you guys to play for her wedding reception and I was a little hesitant because I was worried that all of the songs would sound the same (I thought a DJ would provide more variety). Was I ever wrong! You guys were FANTASTIC!!!! From The Rolling Stones to Michael Jackson to Marc Ronsan/Bruno Mars to Rod Stewart, you guys were great!!! I've had a number of folks tell me they've never had that much fun at a wedding before and that's due to you guys --- you made the reception! I can't say enough good things about you so I'll just say thanks so much for making my daughter's wedding reception unforgettable!!!!

I hope you all enjoyed your time with us and we really appreciate your excitement and energy.

Due to your engagement, we were able to raise over $90,000 to support children and families in our community.

I believe Kat provided rave reviews to Ellie of EastCoast Entertainment, but if there's another way for us to provide feedback, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you Hot Sauce Party Band for helping make our wedding reception truly perfect! We've had so many guests tell us how awesome you guys were! Your energy, enthusiasm, and the way you worked the room to make everyone feel included had us all dancing and singing along to a perfect mix of songs. We knew we were in great hands in preparation for our wedding as you listened to what we wanted and double checked that you understood our requests fully, gave great feedback on our ideas, and went above and beyond to encorporate personal touches just for our day. Everyone had an amazing time! Thank you for helping make our reception such great fun! We hope to have an opportunity to work with you again!

Thank you! You all were amazing! We had so many people ask "Who is the band?"! We are already talking about bringing you back next year. We loved how you interacted with the audience, kept everyone on the dance floor and played to all ages! We had ages 18-80 there and the dance floor was always packed.

Thank you again, you all are great to work with!

We cant thank you enough. It was amazing!

Phil.....I received highly positive feedback about the performance of Hot Sauce for the 4th of July festivities at the Lake Norman Yacht Club. The dance floor was packed with all ages....and many acted numerous years below their actual age. You made me look good. I do hope for a repeat performance next year.....and have heard that the person running our Labor Day Regatta has designs on booking you guys for that event as well! Great job....and we will stay in touch.

We had such an awesome time at our wedding. It was more fun than I could have ever wished for and we owe it in large part to you and Hot Sauce. We had so many compliments about the band and I had never seen many of my family members dance before, let alone on the dance floor the entire night! You really kept the party going and we loved every second of it. If we ever have an event worthy of a band in DC or south I will be sure to get in touch with you guys. You exceeded our expectations and we felt very fortunate to have you play at our wedding. You sir, are a gentleman and a true delight to work with. Everything went so smooth and was completely too easy! I did find out why the lights went off at the end of the night. My older brother tried to do one of the flip moves Holly and I did during our first dance. When he flipped the guy in the air, the guy's feet got caught in the lights and short circuited everything. We were really lucky you guys brought the lights! It almost was like it was planned, turning the dancefloor into a club scene towards the end of the night. Lastly, I was absolutely ecstatic when you played Shout for the Encore. Really rocked the night!

Thanks again and hope to rock out to Hot Sauce in the future!
Warm regards,

By all accounts, it WAS a great event!! Thanks for being so flexible and for providing such a fabulous party for the 75th Anniversary of the Virginia State Bar.

Will look forward to a return visit sometime in the near future!

I am the mother of the bride and very excited to write this review. When my daughter got engaged 10 months ago, we knew that we wanted a live band for the reception. Not knowing a lot about bands in the North Carolina area, we turned to EastCoast Entertainment. We requested a band that would bring high energy and were able to get our guest on the dance floor. The music for an evening can make or break a party. EastCoast Entertainment sent use 5 different bands to review. We chose Hot Sauce. Many of my friends could not believe that I never went to listen to them live but chose them from listening to their music through the internet. Wow, I can't begin to tell you how wonderful the evening was and all the compliments we received from our guest. Our friends and family were on the dance floor all night long. They did not want the night to end. Hot Sauce is worth every penny and more. Thank you Hot Sauce for being apart of my daughter's wedding and making her wedding a dream come true.

I just wanted to reach out and thank you, again, for playing at our wedding!!! YOU GUYS ROCKED!!! People were on the dance floor all night and everyone couldn't stop talking about how awesome you all were and what an awesome time they had!!! That day was absolutely amazing and I also wanted to say thank you for playing our song “live” for us! It was perfect! You made our day extra special and we couldn't have asked for more!

You guys are the best! Thank you so much for making our wedding reception unforgettable.

I can't even begin to tell you how long it took us to find a band we liked. Chad, his mom and I went to so many concerts last summer in the Charleston area but with Scott Toole's advice, decided to book Hot Sauce just off your demo. It was the best choice we made for the whole wedding.

You guys kept the flow and party going so wonderfully. I still have guests calling me to tell me the Band was worth whatever we paid!

Thank you so very much!

Hey Doug,

Hot Sauce was awesome! Could not have gotten a better band for our wedding. They delivered exactly what we wanted and were so friendly and professional!! I would highly recommend them to anyone!

We had the BEST time, and did not want the party to large part because of Hot Sauce.

Just wanted to tell you and the guys how much fun we had at the wedding. Y'all did an amazing job!! We did not want it to end!!

Thank you so much for helping us to have a truly amazing wedding day and party!!!

Everyone said that y'all were the best, most fun band they have seen at a wedding, and will definitely recommend y'all to anyone we hear of that needs an awesome band for their event.

I could go on and on about how much fun we had....y'all brought the house down and delivered exactly what we wanted for that night.

We hope y'all had as much fun as we did! Please keep in touch and hopefully we will see y'all again very soon!!

Can't thank you guys enough for putting on an awesome performance for the 3rd Annual Gopher Ball supporting The First Tee of Greater Charleston. You guys kept the crowd going all night and were a blast! Everything from the variety of songs and costumes to how you all worked the room all night was perfection! You did a excellent job of helping promote the cause and raise awareness for the organization which was very much appreciated. Thanks for the support and we hope to get you back to Charleston for another event!

Hot Sauce is the best band we have had at an event in years! Not only are they polished, professional, and amazingly, talented musicians- they are a blast! These guys party right along with you, and they know how to make a party fun. They came in with a positive attitude, ready to work. They were flexible and accommodating all night long. They kept it low key during cocktails, and knew exactly what to do to fill the dance floor when we were ready. They literally left our crowd begging for more! Hot Sauce is an excellent party band! Those five guys made our event a roaring success! I really appreciate what they did for us, and give them my highest recommendation. They are a great group of guys and a superb band!

They were great to work with... extremely nice guys, very professional, happy and talkative during setup (in the best way), great audience interaction and super fun to watch perform. I heard from more than one person that they sounded fantastic and played a great mix of songs. Thanks so much for helping me with this suggestion, they were great to work with on Saturday. Thanks again for all of your help!

Mr. Sullivan - I'm Justin P's father. While I surely don't have the experience with bands that my son does, if there is a group out there that is remotely in the same class as you guys....I would have to see it and hear it before I could ever believe it. I just wanted to thank you and the other members of your group for the role that you played in helping make my peerless son's wedding the memorable event that he deserved. Also, rest assured that the memory of my precious daughter on the dance floor with the leader of the band.... is a memory I will carry with me.

Let me first say that words cannot express what it meant to my parents and I to turn around and see you holding my sister's hand and dancing and singing with her. You and the band are a truly amazing group of people.

Next, you guys KILLED IT!!! Absolutely KILLED IT!! From the very beginning to the end y'all had the dancefloor packed from start to finish, exactly what we wanted!! There wasn't a single person in the room who did not complement the band, y'all even had everyone yelling encore at the end of the set...that doesn't happen at weddings! During the last song, Melissa and I turned around to take it all in, and it was amazing to see the dancefloor packed with people. I tell ya, we have a lot of friends getting married this summer and i'm pretty sure you guys made them very nervous, because y'all set the bar VERY high!!! Don't be surprised if they end up calling you!

I cannot thank you and the rest of the band enough for being willing to move the date and doing whatever it took to make this happen for Melissa and her family. You certainly didn't have to but it sure says a lot about who you guys are as people that you did.

Thank you soo much and please let me know if there is anywhere I can formally write you guys a recommendation, I'll be glad to do as many as necessary. I hate we didn't get to talk more before and after but I'll be keeping up with you guys and hope to see y'all at another party soon.

Thank you very much for performing at our Gala again this year, we absolutely love having Hot Sauce and our guests sure do too! Of course, we were happy to tip you guys for such a great job! Thank you for your compliments, it really was a great event, we were so pleased! And happy to announce that this year's event raised more than $63,000 with 205 guests in attendance!!! Which helped us reach our goal of a 5-year grand total of $275,000 raised for lupus. That is nearly 63,000 new opportunities to help those affected by lupus. This event has become a cornerstone of our organization, one we look forward to celebrating with beads & masks & drinks for years to come. And we would love to have the pleasure of your involvement again next year! Thank you again!
