    • The Red Hot Chilli PIPERS (NOT the Peppers!) is a 9-piece ensemble consisting of pipers, guitarists, keyboards, and drummers -- who have been rocking the world with musicianship of the highest order and a passion for pipes that will leave you breathless. 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”. The result is a blazing rock band and show so hot, it carries its own health warning!
