Bagpipes with attitude. Drums with a Scottish accent. A blazing rock band and show so hot, it carries its own health warning! It's Bagpipes. It's Rock. It's Bagrock. AC/DC meets the poet Robert Burns. Where rock anthems sit comfortably alongside the great tunes from the glens and the mountains of Scotland. It's The Red Hot Chilli PIPERS - (NOT the Peppers!) - a 9-piece ensemble consisting of pipers, guitarists, keyboards, and drummers-who have been rocking the world from New York to Beijing to Melbourne and everywhere in between with musicianship of the highest order and a passion for pipes that will leave you breathless. Formed in 2002, The Chillis have fast become a global phenomenon, taking their signature 'Bagrock' sound to the masses with their unique fusion of rocked up Bagpipes and clever covers of popular songs from all genres. Their trademarked sound is a unique fusion of traditional pipe tunes-like "The Flowers of Scotland," "The Hills of Argyll," and "Amazing Grace" (done Chilli-style, of course!)-and contemporary anthems like Queen's "We Will Rock You," "Clocks" by Coldplay, "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol, "Let Me Entertain You" by Robbie Williams, and a fantastic rock medley of "Deep Purple," "Smoke on the Water," and AC/DC's "Thunderstruck." There has never been anything quite like The Red Hot Chilli Pipers. Feel the Chilli heat: It's time to come closer to the fire!
