Hot Rize

Hot Rize is a bluegrass band that was originally comprised of Tim O'Brien (mandolin, fiddle), Pete Wernick (banjo), Charles Sawtelle (guitar) and Nick Forster (electric bass). They rose to prominence in the early 1980s, appeared on national radio and TV shows and toured most of the US, Japan, Europe and Australia. But when Charles Sawtelle passed away in 1999, the group lay dormant for three years until Forster and O'Brien brought in Bryan Sutton on the guitar to reform the band.
