Heatwave is a 1970s funk group.

They had three big singles hits in 1977 and 1978: "Boogie Nights" (#2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and certified platinum), the ballad "Always and Forever" (#18, gold), and "The Groove Line" (#7, gold).

The band was plagued by tragedies. One of the original band members, Jesse Whitten, was stabbed to death before their first recording session. An almost fatal car crash caused band member Mario Mantese to leave the group, and another car crash left Johnnie Wilder paralysed from the neck down. Though Wilder continued to work with the band and sing in the recording studio, he was unable to go on tour.

Their hit "Boogie Nights" from their first album Too Hot to Handle inspired the title for the movie Boogie Nights.
