Few modern jazz groups play music that is both readily accessible and deeply sophisticated. Hot House West has built their home at that rarest of intersections.

We love how Hot House West is always striving for perfection. They are a community-driven group. They unite dancers and musicians, provide valuable entertainment, and give opportunities for new musicians to bud into professionals. We look forward to dancing with them for years to come!
