HOT FOR TEACHER brings audiences the rocking sounds of Van Halen. Formed in 1999 to showcase Van Halen’s classic era of David Lee Roth hits, HOT FOR TEACHER has relentlessly performed all across the United States. This band is perfect for outdoor festivals, large casino events, and packed concert venues nation-wide.

Channeling David Lee Roth’s singing voice of his youth, vocalist Randy Monroe sings with intensity like the original well-known recordings. As a playful tie-in with the band’s name, Monroe is also an accredited Science Teacher and Scientist with a Master of Science and multiple awards in his field.

From the amazing guitar riffs reminiscent of Eddie Van Halen, to the thunder of what Michael Anthony sounded like on bass, and the infectious drum beats evoked by Alex Van Halen – professional musicians get together and seamlessly play just like the original artists. Even the vocal harmonies, a crucial sonic element of every Van Halen song, get the most finicky Van Halen fans cheering.

No other Van Halen Tribute performs the technically complex music of Van Halen better than HOT FOR TEACHER. Perhaps that’s why they have been joined onstage by other rock legends such as Van Halen’s very own Michael Anthony, Pat Travers, Brad Gillis (Ozzy Osbourne, Night Ranger), Joel Hoekstra (Night Ranger), and Joey Alves of Y&T. HOT FOR TEACHER has also shared the stage with many greats including Eric Martin of Mr. Big, Peter Frampton, Dennis DeYoung of Styx, Nazareth, Great White, Hollywood All-Stars Chas West (Bonham/Lynch Mob), Carlos Cavazo (Quiet Riot), Jimmi Bain (Dio), Blues Traveler, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Y&T, Night Ranger, Tesla, and many others.Featured on television and in magazines, HOT FOR TEACHER was also featured in the book, “Everybody Wants Some – the Van Halen Saga” by Ian Christie. In 2008, HOT FOR TEACHER was voted Best Tribute Band by the East Bay Express and became the first tribute ever invited to perform at the prestigious National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) in Anaheim, CA. For over 3 years they have been entertaining at the annual event.

When you need a pro band to get people to party at your event, HOT FOR TEACHER brings the party!
