Who We Are
The Hot Tub Piranhas is a Band that formed back in 2012 as a 4-piece classic and contemporary rock cover band. They performed together for 3 years in the greater North Shore and Southern New Hampshire areas to an appreciative and fun fan-base from those area's and beyond.
In latter 2018, The H.T.P.'s reformed with a host of different musicians and just recently added one new "position" Performer and went on to replace a guitarist and more recently a bass player
Now, in restructuring the band, we've added a Multi-Instrumentalist in Magic Mike Caffi who plays Saxophone, Flute, Keyboard and Sings on backing vocals. We also have a new Guitarist... Rich Oliver and Bassist Tom Mitchell.
With this lay-over, not being able to perform live shows during the Covid 19 Pandemic, we thought we would seize the opportunity to rebuild our song catalog with some newer (...for us) material, many songs of which we've not heard other bands cover, but probably have wanted to. Instrumentation goes along with talent and the drive to do certain music and we now have those instrumental tools to do the material we've wanted to. Of course we will have plenty of the previous catalog material available for "bring back" by request still in play, but we're trying to achieve something a little different by adding a few of the more sophisticated and honestly more complicated rock tunes that are now available to us, due to the expanded instrumentation.
We've a mission in mind with the new changes we've made to the band. That mission is to bring a musical environment of talent, professionalism and fun to any and all events we perform for... be it music club, tavern/pub, or any private event you can think of, including: Weddings, Birthday Parties, Graduations, Bar Mitzvahs, Christmas/New Years Eve., Retirement Parties and so on... More Private events are our #1 goal, but we will always perform in music clubs as well.
The members of the band have extensive experience in live performance and studio recording and have been performing since they were in their early teens. Though we are not kids anymore, we still rock with the best of them and can get anyone, from ages 8 to 80, pumped up and jamming on the dance floor and having fun. The music we cover transcends all age groups in it's appeal and it's delivery.
