Raul (Guitar, Vocals) came from Peru and spent 4 years in Montana, US where he gets familiar with new genres such as Country, Bluegrass and Jam music, looking for more musical challenges moved to Colorado where he mets Mike (Mandolin, vocals) and Chris (ex-Percussion) playing open mics and sessions nights at the local bars in Summit County. After playing at the South Park music festival they met Blizzard (Bass) and named the band "Rojos Calientes". The sound of the band draws what we believe is a new trend in music, which we call it LATINGRASS or simply REDGRASS
Influences range from Peruvian and south american folky music (Raul's side) to bluegrass, country americana, rock, Jam and more (the Gringo's side).
Early achievements of the band are:
Opening Show for Devotchka, 27 october 2007 at the Filmore auditorium in Denver.
opening for elephant revival, 2009, breckenridge, colorado
