The Hot Potatoes play a wild mix of blues, swing and originals, with a touch of New Orleans for spice. Instrumentation consists of guitars, fiddle, harmonica, upright bass and drums. The Hot Potatoes can go from Chicago blues to a Cajun fiddle tune, from a field shout to a sophisticated swing tune in less time than it takes to say it. Beyond the high level of musicianship, the one constant in our performances is the constant sense of enjoyment - we love playing music and we have a lot of fun doing it!

 

Our motto: "Cogito ergo spud" (I think therefore I yam)

Hot Potatoes songlist:

I Only Have Eyes For You
In Walked Spud

I Yam What I Yam
They Did the Mash
I Dig You Up the Most
...and more!

(Just kidding, here's the real list)
