Over the years the band have continued to evolve their sound. Starting out performing a rockabilly covers gig, the band quickly evolved and the hit single, Life You Get, propelled them to play all over the UK and introduced them to play Glastonbury as one of their first gigs! Since then the band have not been afraid to play styles of music which allows them to explore their creativity, while always looking to make catchy tunes which get the crowd singing and dancing along.

Notable gigs have included Viva Las Vegas, Glastonbury festival, Pineda festival (Spain), Rock at Sea (Sweden), a European tour supporting The Delta Bombers and many more around the world and across the UK.

Red Hot Riot released an album and EP on the label Western Star Records, but are self-managed. The band continue to bring high energy to every performance, showing their love and passion for what they do on stage, and leaving crowds cheering for more.
