In this case, Hot Buttered Rum isn’t a lip-smacking drink recipe comprising butter, sugar, spices and rum, but rather it’s an enduring camaraderie of five best friends in a the band.

Get a taste of harmony, acoustic and percussion from Northern California on Wednesday, Feb. 27, when Hot Buttered Rum makes a tour stop at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St.

Doors will open at 7 p.m., and tickets for the all-ages show cost $12.50.

Hot Buttered Rum was conceived by the high school and college buddies while they were on a backpacking trip in the High Sierra, according to

“What was dreamed up on mountaintops and around campfires has found its way into the hearts, minds, and bodies of thousands,” the website says.

“Hot Buttered Rum lives for songs. Songs to sing in the shower. Songs to crank through your earbuds at the DMV. Songs to name your babies after, and then make more babies to,” the website says.

After a number of shows this month in ski resort towns — Durango, Crested Butte, Vail and Breckenridge — the band will head to Phoenix to thaw. Beginning in mid-March, Hot Buttered Rum will perform at venues at New Jersey, Maryland, Vermont, Delaware, Conneticut and New York before returning home to Northern California.

“Hot Buttered Rum lives for a good time. The group’s onstage chemistry fuels the lovefest that is a live HBR show. A mindful recklessness settles in whenever these five guys step out of their front doors in northern California to entertain crowds from Anchorage to Miami,” the website says.

Go to the band’s website or call 241-1717 for information about the band and show.
