Not only is bluegrass band Hot Rize a star-studded super group (original members are mandolin player Tim O'Brien and Pete Wernick on banjo; bassist Nick Forster joined three months in and WNC guitarist Bryan Sutton was added in 2002), the band has been playing for more than 30 years. They're calling the current lineup with Sutton "21st Century Hot Rize" and playing gigs in concert halls, theaters and festivals (include Bonnaroo 2010 on that list). Hot Rize performs two shows at the Madison County Arts Center on Sunday, Oct. 2 at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. $25. http://www.madisoncountyarts.com
