On the Road with Hot Rize
Hot Rize Hits the Road–Hot!
Hot Rize’s 2015 tour schedule includes 30+ venues
The 2015 tour schedule has the band spending a good bit of time in the East, starting in Florida’s Suwannee Springfest and making their way from Nashville to Georgia and Tennessee, finishing up a short set of theater shows in Plymouth, NH to round out March. The band members agree that the cave at Bluegrass Underground definitely wins for the most unique venue so far; ‘like’ our Facebook page for pictures and videos from our March performances.
Hot Rize and Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers have been invited to perform at many major Bluegrass festivals in North America this season, getting started April 18th at the Old Settlers’ Music Fest in Texas, followed by a date at the traditional picker’s dream festival, Merlefest.
The band also heads southwest this spring for a stop at Phoenix’s Musical Instrument Museum followed by the largest venue of the tour, the Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, California, “California’s Country Music Festival.”
All of our announced tour dates are listed on the schedule — check back frequently for updates and come see us at a show!
