It is rare when a band performs together for a decade much less two decades…..But Austin’s EXTREME HEAT has a performance life that spans five decades. In the 35 years they have been together, EXTREME HEAT has traveled and performed extensively throughout the U.S.A.
Formed in 1977 from the critically acclaimed band Steam Heat, EXTREME HEAT cut it’s musical teeth playing legendary Austin venues like the Armadillo, Liberty Lunch, Steamboat, Antones, and the Saxon Pub. During the 1980’s and 1990’s EXTREME HEAT’s eclectic, funky, jazz and rock influenced sound was heard throughout Texas as a constant presence in the clubs and music festivals of Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Lubbock, Amarillo, and Tyler.
With the release of a new CD in 2016 “Year Before The War,” 2013 Soulstice, and 2 CD’s in 2012, Live at the Saxon Pub and Put Some Weight on It ! , EXTREME HEAT continues to entertain audiences with their funky ‘old school’ sound 35 years after their inception.
