Hotter Than July :
Stevie Wonder Tribute Band

In honor of the man we believe is one of the most incredible and complete recording artists of all time, the Hotter Than July is a Stevie Wonder Tribute Band is a high energy, soulful group of talented and experienced musicians. Led by professional musician Gerry Williams, an unbounded vocalist and percussionist who brings funk on the keys, this is a band you can't help but get on your feet and groove to. Backed by rhythm and horns and performing Stevie's greatest hits from Sign Sealed Delivered to I Wish, this band knows how to entertain a crowd!

Stevie Wonder is portrayed by the incredible Gerry Williams, an industry veteran vocal coach with a background in artist development that garnered him the reputation as the ‘boy band guy’ since the onset of the pop groups that emerged in the mid 90’s. Several of his vocal students are Grammy and Dove Award Winner- Mandy Moore, Jordan Knight (New Kids on the Block), Jeff Timmons (98 Degrees), Chris Kirkpatrick (N’Sync), to name a few. Gerry has been a featured vocal coach on reality TV shows- Mission Man Band, Big in America- and has produced and written songs for artists such as Jordan Knight and C’Note.
