Hotpoint plays (only occasionally, these days) for contra and square dances.
That's about it... some nice waltzes to get us through dance weekends, a hambo if someone begs for it. But when it comes to playing for dancers, we have always poured everything we have into the music (and then some!) We've played together for a long time and yes, we're all still friends!

We're a contemporary midwestern contradance band.
Sam Bartlett once said of us: "They sound like a contradance band that's never heard another contradance band!" and we have always taken that as a compliment. We write a lot of our own tunes, and play a lot of other contemporary tunes written by friends. We are also really into zen-trance oldtime tunes, where the band sounds like a swarm of locusts.
