Music for a Cause, HP & His Hot Take Out Band Are Back with a New Album, Better Than Ever
Join HP & His Hot Take Out Band on their musical journey to provide healing and hope for people affected by COVID 19. The Band is joining hands with the One Square Mile Community Project to make music a source of healing and hope to those struggling around the world.

HP & His Hot Take Out Band is the talk of the town. Speaking to Jersey Beat Magazine, Phil Rainone said, “They are a band that has to be heard to be seen and seen to be heard.” His statement itself describes how exclusive and committed the Band is towards their music. Making noticeable music in the Americana, Blues, Cajun Zydeco, and roots genre, HP & His Hot Take Out Band loves making music and commit to their work with a passion.

HP & His Hot Take Out Band are unique because they make covers and originals that are equally as good as the covers they interpret. Some of their most upbeat originals include “Zydeco Mama,” “Back In The Woods,” “Every Time I Turn Around,” and “Baby Baby.” The Band believes in making unique music that stands out and speaks for itself. The Band’s accordionist Bruce Gassman was honored as the best accordionist of the year by the committee of the World Music Awards.

One Square Mile Community Music Project is a Not-For-Profit organization whose mission is to make music a source of healing and hope. The organization has joined hands with the HP & His Hot Take Out Band and is releasing a new CD titled “Keyport Live.” The organization will be donating the net proceeds from the sales of this CD to the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund, which was established for the residents of New Jersey who have been impacted by COVID-19, and to the Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation that works to preserve and promote jazz, blues, and other forms of music in New Jersey.

The Keyport summer concert series was recorded down the shore, live on June 29th, 2017. The photography on the CD was done by Howard’s son Sam.
