Dan and Cat met (at a gig of course!) in 2011. With Cat's amazing soulful lead Vocals and Dan's crazy guitar skills, they knew what they had to do...
Since then, they have travelled the world performing hundreds of gigs, often to the British Military overseas as one of only a handful of acts trusted to perform for the MOD. Hot Shots bring the experience of these, often huge shows, to every performance they do. It means they really can connect with their audience, no matter how big or small. A wedding, a party, a bar gig, 300 troops returning from their tour, 1500 people at Camp Bastion. That experience puts Hot Shots into the upper reaches of professional covers music, that few other performers are lucky enough to experience.
See the pictures section for just a brief insight into where Hot Shots have been....Dubai to Dorset, The Falklands to France, and everywhere in between!
As a duo, Cat and Dan relish the challenge of performing all sorts of music with just 2 guitars and 2 vocals. From Dire Straits to Guns N'Roses, Taylor Swift to Ed Sheeran, the Monkees to ACDC, Sam Smith to Mumford and Sons. Hot Shots put their own individual style into every tune they play. Hot Shots love it when people come up to them after a show and say 'I never thought I'd hear a duo play that!' See our song list for an example of what the Hot Shots Duo often play...
Cat and Dan often team up with their band for Weddings, Parties, Balls etc. This means the duo expand to a four, five, or even larger electric band, guaranteed to keep the party going all night. Selected from the cream of London and The South's session players, only the best, most trusted professional musicians get to play with Hot Shots. See the pictures page, song list page and Video/Audio page for more info...
