Hot Rize is a bluegrass band that rose to prominence in the early 1980s. Estabilished in 1976, the founding members were Mike Scap (guitar), Tim O'Brienon mandolin and fiddle, Pete Wernick on banjo and Charles Sawtelle on bass. Mike Scap was soon replaced by Nick Forster (electric bass), allowing Charles Sawtelle to switch to acoustic guitar. The band played together until they disbanded in 1992 and issued 5 studio albums. Following the death of Charles Sawtelle, Hot Rize re-groupped in 2002, adding Bryan Sutton to play the guitar.
