March 9 will be HBE's first show in over three months. Highlights will include two new original songs ("Stanley" and "D.I.Y"), as well as a bastardized re-cover of Christina Aguilera's "I Am Beautiful".
With the departure of guitarist "JC" in November, the band has decided to skip the audition process and instead focus their energies on a 3-pc version of the band. While the band is open to one day adding a 4th member, in the meantime they will retool the show as a trio and plan to be back on the scene in the spring.
HBE is BACK and BETTER THAN EVER!
Scott, Rob, and Shawn welcome new guitarist "JC" (formerly of American Giant)
"Agent I" will open the show.

Hot Buttered Elvis will be playing at the Dale City Elk's Lodge on October 30th. This show is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and will feature SHAWN SHARIFI ON BASS! Details to follow...but mark your calendars now!
As you may already know, our bass player and brother-in-arms Shawn "Spleef" Sharifi was left paralyzed after surgery last January. We are happy to report that he is making remarkable progress. Shawn has even played twice on stage with HBE (at his Benefit at Jaxx last May & at Barberpaloozafest last July) and although he still has a way to go before he is fully recovered, he no longer requires a wheel chair and is responding well to physical therapy. Keep in touch with Shawn's progress via his blog at CaringBridge.org (see below)
