About Hot Einstein

Everything from Elvis to OutKast...all your favorite hits (and some for your Grandma, too!)

Hot Einstein is the wedding band for real music fans!  We're less focused on glitz and glamour, and more on musicianship and great sound -- we are not your run-of-the-mill, corporate-franchised wedding band that advertises in every town and has 20 different line-ups. We don't play the same tired songs that all the other bands play. We don't present ourselves with doctored-up videos mixing live video with studio-recorded tracks.  That's fake -- and we're not! We are a group of musicians and friends who play together all the time and have a tight group chemistry, and the kind of energy and love of what we do that will enhance the once-in-a-lifetime experience that is your wedding day.  It's a real live band at a price that fits most budgets.  If you are a fan of great music and not just the bland offerings of corporate radio and modern pop -- then we're the band for you!

The group plays covers of rock, pop, soul, funk and dance tunes from artists such as Michael Jackson, The Talking Heads, David Bowie, Queen, Blondie, The Pretenders, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, to modern favorites like Daft Punk, MGMT, Alabama Shakes and Cee-Lo!  Yeah, we don't typically play Carly Rae Jepsen, Rihanna, Beyonce or Justin Beiber tunes.  We could if you really wanted us too, but if you've read this far you're probably not requesting Call Me Maybe at your wedding.

Hot Einstein has a diverse repertoire that is inviting to all different types of crowds and ages!

The musicians will learn and play live the songs you pick for the first dance and the father/daughter dance and we invite your input for the band's song selection for the evening if you like,  Plus, this eclectic band has extensive live performance experience and takes pride in reading the audience to keep everyone up and dancing!

Hot Einstein is flexible, professional and reliable and happy to work with you craft the perfect wedding soundtrack. Additionally, we can provide a sound system and DJ, play ceremony music, background dinner music, emcee your reception, provide sound or music for your ceremony, and run your iPod playlist for your wedding.

For more information, check out our website at www.hoteinstein.com

Better yet, come see the band at one of their regular public performances at Tupelo in North Beach, San Francisco, typically on the 4th Friday of each month.

Hot Einstein played at our wedding and they were absolutely fantastic!!! Matt was incredible to work with, very helpful, responsive, and had many great suggestions of things we hadn't thought of. We chose to go full out and got the core band plus a female lead singer and two brass band members to boot and it was awesome. All of our guests raved about how great the band was and the dance floor was packed the entire time. Several of our guests work weddings as DJ's or band members and they all agreed that Hot Einstein rocked the set. We could not more highly recommend them.

Hot Einstein was AMAZING at our wedding! They let me pick the songs that I wanted them to play, and all of my guests were very impressed by their talent! Having a live band at the wedding vs. a DJ was such a great choice as they really kept the party going.

Matt was very responsive with all of my inquires and many questions. My now husband surprised me with a performance with some of my best friends (all musicians), and the band not only let them take over for 2 songs, but also let him use their drums and some of their equipment! They are so talented and made my wedding really stand out. You will not regret booking Hot Einstein!
