Mason Jar Music creatively blended two Hot Rize performances with unique New York landscapes — a stealth tram ride over the East River, and the spectacle of Times Square by night visited by bluegrass aliens. Not your usual music videos.
Breaking News: What is being officially termed a “booking aberration” has sent a ripple of concern through the ranks of Hot Rize stakeholders: Hot Rize employees Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers have accepted an offer to play next summer’s RockyGrass festival without Hot Rize.

Pete now has on DrBanjo.com’s store section banjo tablature for virtually ALL the banjo breaks he’s ever recorded. The archive covers 20 albums from his first recordings with Country Cooking in 1971 right up to the new Hot Rize album. This unprecedented archive is thanks to the amazing work of “banjo tabmeister Brian Ford” of Duluth, MN, whose interest in Pete’s playing started him down the path a few years ago. Over 250 banjo solos are available for download!
