Hot Rize

The eclectic Colorado progressive bluegrass band Hot Rize also played traditional bluegrass, jazz, and rock. They came together in 1976 and were named after the secret ingredient of Martha White Self-Rising Flour, the product Flatt & Scruggs had promoted early in their careers. The bandmembers were Tim O'Brien on lead and harmony vocals, mandolin, and fiddle; Pete Wernick on banjo and harmony vocals; and Charles Sawtelle on bass guitar, guitar, harmonies, and lead vocals. Mike Scap departed in 1976 and was replaced by bass player, guitarist, and vocalist Nick Forster, who also became the group's MC. Hot Rize recorded its self-titled debut album, a blend of traditional and new material, in 1979. Their second album, Radio Boogie, came out in 1981. A year later, their alter ego Red Knuckles & the Trailblazers, a parody of hardcore '50s country music, recorded their own album, Red Knuckles & the Trailblazers. In 1984, Hot Rize released a concert album largely comprised of traditional hits and in 1985 released Traditional Ties. In 1991 another Red Knuckles album, Shades of the Past, followed. Their final album, Take It Home, came out in 1992; O'Brien and Wernick went on to successful solo careers, while Forster went on to executive produce the syndicated radio variety show Etown. Sawtelle passed away in March 1999 after a two-year fight with leukemia. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

Charles Sawtelle Left A Pickin' Style ThaT Hasn't Been Matched by Anyone Here On Earth Maybe Someday, Rest In Peace We Sure Miss You.
Could it have been Church Steeple on the O'Boy's record? I may be wrong but I believe Tim had a brother lost in Vietnam. On the same record is another beautiful elegaic song called Time To Learn, that he wrote with Pat Alger.

HI CAN ANYBODY TELL ME THE SONG THAT TIM SANG ONE NIGHT ON SOME SHOW.IF I RECALL RIGHT HE WROTE THE SONG, AND IT HAS SOMETHING TO WITH VIETNAM, A REALLY GREAT SONG AS YOU ALL KNOW OUR MEMORIES CAN GET CLOUDY,THANK S
Charles Sawtelle is still one of hte most amazing flat pick guitarists I've ever heard.
Tim is awesome. isn't it cool how bluegrass players are all tied together from different bands linking back to Bill Monroe? i admire all of them.
I really believe Tim could play with anyone and make them sound good! Love all his stuff no matter who he is with or solo!
Their debut album (1979) still sounds fresh and contemporary 30 years later. The recent reunion shows (with Bryan Sutton on guitar) were wonderful. These guys did many things you "shouldn't" do in "real" bluegrass (two part harmony, four piece band, electric bass, cerebral humor, etc) and still stayed true to the traditions of bluegrass.
The guys in the Rize were some of the best around. Innovative in the music...but more especially in the quality of their shows. They transformed modern bluegrass and were right on the cutting edge of the new generations of bluegrass music to emerge in the 1980's. Indeed, they attracted a lot of young people to the genre and breathed new life into this great music.
Great group to hear live!!! Many great memories! And the Red Knuckles stuff was way over the top funny!
Funnily enough I enjoy these guys as much as my other random tastes in reggae, country western, drum and bass and some old hiphop from the 90s. I guess you might say i have no taste in music... or, I just got a really big tongue. If im crazy take a look at my stations and drop me a message. Cheers. Bluegrass is made of soul, and thats what I like about it.
Really Like this Band. Tim O'Brien is a great bluegrass singer. Please add this band and their music to your list of bluegrass music play. I also love Tony Rice and Ricky Skaggs. The Osborne Brothers and many other contemporary greats. Keep playing bluegrass. Thanks Barb
