"Born in Chattanooga, Tennessee and raised in Cramerton, North Carolina, I taught myself guitar at the age of fifteen. I knew then that was how I would make a living. Two things were for sure: I could pick a guitar and I knew a lot of songs. Never considering myself a singer, I said screw it and jumped right in. At age seventeen, I began to play in many of the local bars whenever I could. I learned to play all kinds of songs. I can now play songs for days, without repeating a single one. I don't know how many days or songs, but it's a lot. The bars taught me to appreciate a good song and good times. To me, until this day, the small bars are the best place to play and listen to live music. There may be smoke, but no smoke and mirrors. It's just you, the guitar, and whoever is in there. I will always play in bars.

I grew up listening to my Mom's records, Glenn Campbell, Billy Joel, The Rolling Stones, The Carpenters, etc... As a teenager I graduated to Guns n Roses, Snoop Dog and David Allan Coe among many. I love to mix genres and push the envelope. I've always liked artists that you can tell they have something to say. They're not just singing some words 'cause it sounds cool. Every song I sing is about ninety percent autobiographical. I can write about partying and drinking because I do it. I write about beautiful women and bitches because I've dealt with them. After numerous rejections in the early 2000's from every major label from Los Angeles to Nashville, I finally made the decision that if I was going to make it I would have to do it myself. All the labels kept telling me was that I
couldn't say this or that. I was like why not? Have you ever listened to David Allan Coe, Tupac, and Eminem? How the hell did they ever put anything out? It was like because I was white and played an acoustic guitar I was supposed to make some type of yuppie music. I wasn't going to be a monkey on a string singing songs about falling in love, broken hearts and drinkin' a six pack. I was chasing girls and getting hammered. I knew if I wanted to do what was really in my heart, where my head was at, I would have to go at it alone... but I wasn't alone as I would come to find out.

Using money from acoustic cover shows played in bars all over the Carolina's, I built a home studio. I had to be able to record whenever I wanted…when the inspiration came. These songs you're hearing, those are the actual first takes. They're not the most professional recordings but the feeling and energy is there.

From 2003 to 2009, I released six albums in which I started to gain listeners from all walks of life and all over the country. It's the feedback I got during this time from people at shows and on the internet that have continued to inspire me to stay the course. There has been no middle man in these songs. They are straight from my garage to your ears.

These are the songs that if you come to a show and have never seen me before, you're bound to hear for sure. So once again, thanks for listening and I hope to see you soon in a bar, honky-tonk, or arena near you."
Hot Buttered Elvis
Hot Buttered Elvis
Hot Buttered Elvis is fronted by Washington Area Music Assoc (WAMA) “Wammie” award winning vocalist/guitarist Scott Barber and features distinguished national performers’ drummer Rob San Pietro (formerly of The Meatmen) and bass player Shawn Sharifi.

Hot Buttered Elvis has been kicking ass and taking names for over a decade with their hard rock shenanigans, winning over crowds with their tight musicianship, one-of-a-kind stage show and notoriously over-the-top antics. How many bands are willing to sport costumes and wigs only to open for themselves as one of a variety of “alter ego” bands? How many bands go that extra mile with a stage show featuring sirens, strobe lights, fog machines, television sets...even a towering Wheel-of-Fortune-style wheel encouraging audience members to interact? Hot Buttered Elvis does it, and they do it on a nightly basis, winning fans worldwide by creating a truly one-of-a-kind event.

In short: when these guys get together, expect the unexpected!

But Hot Buttered Elvis is more than just window dressing. Hot Buttered Elvis are all top-notch, touring veterans of the music scene who take their craft seriously. Whether it’s creating fun versions of popular cover songs (the likes of which have been played nationally on NBC TV) or writing/performing selections from their own original music catalog (likes of which have been played on radio including "The Howard Stern Show”), Hot Buttered Elvis have the chops and versatility to deliver the goods musically AND visually, no matter the venue or occasion.

So next time you’re looking for something fresh and fun on the live music scene, give Hot Buttered Elvis a try. You won’t be disappointed.
