There are a few essential things the human body needs to survive. Food and water are important, human affection is good and of course music you can dance to is a must! HOT RIOT! provides a heavy dose of feel good, fun, dance-party rock music. Based in Los Angeles, the founding member, Kelly Riot (vocals, guitar) serves up a heavy dose of what the body needs! Influenced by the catchy new wave synth styles of the 80's and the rougher punk rock music of the 90's puts HOT RIOT! in the class of modern day dance rock! Taking chapters from the books of artists like Mindless Self Indulgence, Blondie, Shiny Toy Guns, Garbage and The Sounds, Kelly Riot delivers her own style of lyrically party pop culture infusion. Along with the chest thumping beats and produced synth, put the band over the top with all the bells and whistles every great pop song needs. Adding the salt in the mix Trevor Seits puts his own spin of deep soulful synth and forlorn beats. His influences come from the complete opposite end of the spectrum ranging from Daft Punk, Bright Eyes, David Bowie, Bob Dylan and The Polysics! Together Kelly and Trevor of HOT RIOT! are your next favorite band and will have you happy within seconds of their first song. Plan on singing the choruses all day!
