On the Road with Hot Rize

Hot Rize Hits the Road–Hot!

Hot Rize’s 2015 tour schedule includes 30+ festivals & venues

Touring behind the recent album release has included gigs in Washington, California, New Hampshire, Florida and many points between. In one week in April they played in all four time zones. 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.
