We’re excited to honor the history-making Oakland based group, who have been invited to join British sensation, The Ting Tings as they embark on a month long North American Tour. After playing only two shows with The Ting Tings in the San Francisco/Bay Area, it wasn’t long until guitarist/vocalist Katie of the The Ting Tings started talking about HOTTUB on blogs and magazines. Katie tells Mojo Magazine in their most current issue:
“They’re three really outrageous girls, kind of like Beth Ditto characters with spandex and disco balls on their heads. They sound like the Beastie Boys but with pop songs. It’s really bizarre, but they’re great performers.”
A few months after the shout out on Mojo Magazine, HOTTUB was invited to join them on their North American tour. 13 of the 20 dates are currently sold out but don’t let that stop you from trying to catch them in a city near you!
Here’s a more “proper” introduction on the group:
Founded in 2005 by producer Jason Stinnett and vocalist Nicole Feliciano, HOTTUB is a five piece group from Oakland, California whose music is an amalgamation of genres such as dancehall, punk, and Miami Bass.
The group consists of: Jason Stinnett, Producer; Coco Machete aka Nicole Feliciano, Vox; Loli PoP aka Jenifer Ackerman, Vox; Ambr33zy aka Amber Griffin-Royal, Vox; and Mark Gregory, Keyboards.
HOTTUB currently has an EP out called On Blast!, available on iTunes, released under their own independent record label, LeHeat.
