EPC -- Red Hot Chili Pipers

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers will perform at the Effingham Performance Center.

Bagpipes with attitude.

Drums with a Scottish accent.

A blazing rock band and show so hot, it carries its own health warning.

It is The Red Hot Chilli Pipers – a 9-piece ensemble consisting of pipers, guitarists, keyboards and drummers – and they’re coming to the Effingham Performance Center on Saturday at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the show are $24-$36 and can be purchased online at www.TheEPC.org or by phone at 217-540-2788. Tickets are available at the Effingham Performance Center box office during business hours – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday; extended until 6 p.m. on Wednesdays; and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.

Since they walked away with the top prize on the primetime TV talent show — “When Will I Be Famous” in the U.K. in 2007 — the Red Hot Chilli Pipers have not stopped for a breath, other than to inflate their bagpipes.

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 trademark 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”.
