Hot Ham & Cheese formed in February 2005 when Robby Mitchell (Drums) and Charile (Vox/Guitar) jammed together for the first time after knowing each other for nearly 10 years. Bassist Louie Styx, a friend of a friend, completed the line-up in July 2005. Shortly after signing with Cleveland indie label, Jib Machine Records, HH&C released their first CD (HH*C ep) in 2006, followed by a lo-fi instrumental album (beta) in 2007, their first full-length (Revolution & Revelations) in April 2008 and finally, the Wake EPs (Part 1 in September 2011 & Part 2 in December 2012).
While touring over the years, HH&C has built a strong following thanks in part to their energetic, aggressive live shows. The group has performed across the country in cities such as Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Indianapolis, New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Sacramento and Salt Lake City.
To celebrate their 10-year anniversary, the group returns with X Sessions, an album containing old and new live in-studio and live tracks along with a studio version of "Judy Kafer", a song written and originally recorded by their late label mate, "Slowhand" Jack Labgold. The album will be released on October 23, 2015.
HH&C’s sound has been described as an eclectic mix of rock, punk, funk and metal combined with insightful and to-the-point lyrics that cover all things relevant in life. They’ve been compared to the likes of Black Sabbath, Primus, The Melvins, Clutch and the Dead Kennedys to name a few. For more information, visit the band’s website at http://www.hothamandcheese.com.
