Heatbox has created an amazing anthem to pizza. Listening to the music, creates a yearning for pizza that doesn't go away.
You can taste the melted cheese. The smell of pizza is in the air. You want dance right down to your local pizzeria and place an order.
I found myself on the phone, begging for a pizza delivery.
OK, I'm exaggerating a bit, but the tune did make me want to eat pizza immediately.
Using different syncopation, beats and melodies, this music drips with pure pizza energy. Add to the fact that Heatbox is a one-man show makes his music truly unique. Heatbox uses his voice to make all of the music that you hear.
The accomanying video with Heatbox as a the star and using his music as a soundtrack insures that you are in for some real pizza fun.
The video also features a surprise visit by some pizza ninjas.
No pizzas were injured during the filming of this video.
I find this one of the most important pizza related tunes of all time.
Get funky. Eat pizza!

The One Man Entertainment System, otherwise known as Heatbox, has been emerging in the Minneapolis music scene (“the 612”) for the better part of a decade. From rocking crowds in his humble beginnings with the Root City Band to selling out shows across the country, Heatbox’s unparalleled crossover between Motown, A cappalla, R&B, Hip Hop, Soul and Funk has gained National attention from both fans and the media alike.
Creating beats and building songs from the ground up, Heatbox uses a Boss LoopStation RC-50 and a voice modulator (sparingly) to create his songs. Recording each part as he goes, Heatbox’s music is live and in the moment. Using no tracks, samples, or pre-recorded music, each song and performance is distinctly unique.
Heatbox’s discography includes two full-length studio albums, Entertainment (2006) and System (2009). Included on System is a video game, Ninja Strike, designed and programmed entirely by Heatbox. Following the System release in 2009, he co-produced two original music videos, "Pizza Funk" and "Jack & Coke” alongside acclaimed Boston video producer Spookie Daly.
