|From Dixieland swing to hot, hot jazz,
the Hot Taters can spice up your event!
Thanks for visiting our site. We're the Hot Taters, bringing you the best in Hot Jazz, Dixieland, and swing from the 20's, 30's and 40's and the funky sounds of New Orleans Mardi Gras music.
We're a versatile band from hard driving Dixieland to classic ballads to the sounds of a New Orleans brass band to happy sing-a-longs, all keeping you entertained.
Link to Jive Jump & Wail!
The core of the band started in central New Jersey under a different name (Hot Patootoes) in late 2008 and evolved into the Hot Taters in
June of 2009. Since then, we've played a variety of venues, including the Trenton Arts Festival, Princeton's Communiversity Day for the
Cape May Traditional Jazz Society, the Titusville Heritage Festival, the Glen Foerd Concert Series in Philadelphia, weddings, swing dances,
various wineries, farmer's markets, and private affairs.
The band consists of Pete Jensen on trombone, trumpet, euphonium, cornet, tuba, flugelhorn, and vocals (not all at the same time!); Jimmy Cara on trumpet; Ron Kostar on clarinet, tenor sax, and vocals; Henry Dale on piano and banjo; Skip Barthold on guitar and vocals; and Bob 'Mose' Marley on drums and the kitchen sink!
So if you want to bring excitement to your event and hear happy, toe tappin', finger snapin' music by a friendly, hard driving band, please give the Hot Taters a holler!
