About The Band

Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts, Once in a great while, an act appears that is so unique, so exciting & so entertaining that it becomes a legend in its on time. Such is the case with Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts. Although Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts are known worldwide as a frat party band, their versatility has placed them in constant demand for proms, society events, night clubs and corporate functions.

In 1955 a group of high school students from Chapel Hill, N.C., organized a musical group known as "The Tops." A year later, after playing fraternity parties at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and getting to be known for their wild and exciting performances, the group's name was changed to Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts. As the name Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts began to penetrate the entertainment world, the group began to perform at almost every major college and university from New Hampshire to Florida and as far west as Texas and Colorado. John Clark sings to a wild fraternity party crowd. Although Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts are known nation-wide for their fraternity parties, their versatility has placed them in constant demands for proms, college dances, military clubs, night clubs, concerts and other musical functions.

The group presently consists of six members and does dance and show sets. Dance sets consist of Beach, Top 40, Dance, Party, Boogie, Soul and Rock and Roll music. Show sets, which are optional, consist of material from nine adult comedy albums, recorded by Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts. Four of these albums were rated in the top ten best sellers in Billboard On Campus Magazine. Even after 41 years of performing, Doug Clark and The Hot Nuts are still one of the best entertainment packages in the business today!
