Hot Rize live at Twist and Shout on Saturday, September 27th at 6pm
This weekend we hosted an event with Colorado Bluegrass legends Hot Rize. We celebrated their first release in nearly 25 years! They performed a superb musical set to a large crowd of fans. We sold many copies of the new album When I’m Free, and customers were able to get them signed after the performance. Bill Nershi (of the String Cheese Incident) was in the audience. SCI fans were thrilled hanging out next to him while he waited in line for the meet & greet. It was a special treat to host an in-store event with such an amazing group of talented players. The crowd was a mix of young and old; my favorite was a toddler dancing in front of the stage. Each member is well known locally as a great musician, and an integral part of the community. Tim O’Brien, Pete Wernick (aka Dr. Banjo), Nick Forster, Bryan Sutton are collectively one of the best Bluegrass bands in the country. It was an impressive sight to see them picking away in person. When I’m Free will be out nationally on 9/30, be sure to pick up a copy!
