What is Hot Buttered Elvis (HBE)? Fun, fast, and furious! Think Green Day meets Frank Zappa meets Alice In Chains meets Spinal Tap. Very versatile stylistically, from hard rock to punk to pop with a heavy dose of fun!


Hot Buttered Elvis is fronted by Washington Area Music Assoc (WAMA) Wammie award winning vocalist/guitarist Scott Barber and a cast of distinguished regional and national performers: drummer Rob San Pietro (formerly of national act The Meatmen), guitarist/vocalist Scott Hedges (House of Echo, Post-Modern Blues), and bass player Shawn Sharifi (Mis-Fit).

Hot Buttered Elvis has released two full length CDs, “Dinner And A Monkey” (2002) and “Occupado!” (2006), and has been making noise at colleges, festivals, and nightclubs all up and down the East Coast. A live performance with HBE features great music with comedy, improvisation, and audience participation, including the semi-legendary ”Wheel Of Fate” which helps determine the nightly set list.

HBE has also opened for themeselves as one of several alter ego "tribute" bands including:
"NUNS N MOSES" (a GnR tribute)
"AMISH IN CHAINS" (an Alice In Chains tribute)
and "FAT HALEN" (a 70's Van Halen tribute)

Bottom line is HBE is about good times and great music. No two HBE live shows are ever alike and “a good time is guaranteed to all*”

* Except that one guy in the back in spandex pants with his arms folded
