Heatwave was formed by the Wilder brothers, Johnnie and Keith, on their discharge from the U.S. Army while in Germany. An advertisement in a music paper yielded Hull and England-born songwriter Rod Temperton. Further members recruited were two more Americans, Eric Johns and Jessie Whitten, a Czech, Ernest Berger, and a Spaniard, Mario Mantese.

Heatwave was designed to be a slamming R&B outfit with strong song sensibilities and equally strong grooves to keep them dancing in the discos. It succeeded spectacularly.

with Heatwave

Between 1977 and 1981, the group enjoyed a series of hit singles in both the UK and USA, including "Boogie Nights," "Always And Forever" and "Mind Blowing Decisions." Despite maintaining some links, Temperton officially left the band in 1977 to forge an impressive songwriting career. Heatwave's own progress was marred by a series of tragedies. Whitten was stabbed to death, Mantese left the group following a severe car crash, while Johnnie Wilder was paralyzed from the neck down as a result of another road accident. Johnnie Wilder courageously remained at the group's helm, producing their work and singing in the studio, while another vocalist, J.D. Nicholas, took his place onstage.

The journey of Heatwave is one of a group that surged to international prominence, which threatened to be eclipsed by tragedy, yet continues to shine intensely in the hearts of those who were ignited on the dance floor by the infectious grooves, electrified at live concerts by the fiery showmanship, and warmed by the smooth ballads that have made them internationally famous.

Heatwave has continued on. The group still tours, keeping the groove line going around the world.

Hits include:

  • Always and Forever
  • Boogie Nights
  • The Groove Line
  • Gangsters of the Groove
  • Eyeballin'
  • Mind Blowing Decisions
  • Lettin' It Loose
  • Where Did I Go Wrong

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire HEATWAVE for an event?)
(i.e., what is HEATWAVE booking fee to perform at an event?)

Official booking fees for HEATWAVE, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at any time without prior notice.

Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.

As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when the artist becomes less popular.

Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at any time. Generally, the artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.

To learn the most current artist's pricing, or the estimated artist's fee for your particular event, simply click on the "Let's Get Started!" link found on this page. Then, send us your request for booking information.
