Mid-Life Crisis and The Hot Flashes formed in 1994, and first performed their line-up of 50's, 60's and 70's rock-n-roll in May of that year. A local paper described them as "a group". Buoyed by that favorable review, the band vowed to stay together and make music history.
The "group" went on to play such historic engagements as the Satellite Lounge, the Museum of Fine
Arts, the Ronald McDonald House, Avondale House, Camp for All, and the Houston Yacht Club. In 1999, the group was asked to play at one of Governor Bush's Inaugural Balls in Austin (1999). In 2001, MLC performed for President Bush at "The Black Tie and Boots" Presidential Inaugural Ball in Washington, D.C. The band was invited back again in January of 2005, 2009 and 2013. The band has opened for popular acts including Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett, La Mafia, and The Temptations, and has played most major venues in the Houston area including Verizon Theatre, The Hobby Center, The Wortham Center, and most of the major Ball Rooms, Country Clubs, Yacht Clubs, and Hotels in the Houston Metroplex area.
Today, the Mid-Life Crisis and The Hot Flashes continue to be one of the most sought-after bands in Houston. They were listed as one of Houston's four top bands by "Harper's Bazaar" (11/98 Issue). In addition to rock and roll and R & B, the band also provides instrumental jazz standards for cocktail hour, making Mid-Life Crisis one of the mosst versitile party bands in the Houston area.
