“Unfussy and unpretentious, their blend of down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation harks back to a lost era of so-called western swing.” -The Times (London)

“Their sly mix of hot licks and cool vocals remains equally driven by the twang of Texas roadhouses as the gypsy string jazz of Reinhardt and Grappelli.” -Country Standard Time

Hot Club of Cowtown holds with tradition and refused to modernize, with instrumental workouts that are fretboard-blistering. The Austin Texas-based trio performs Western swing, Gypsy jazz and cowboy tunes with equal ebullience and sprightly charm, with earnest sincerity and impeccable musicianship. Between the fiddle, guitar and vocals, this group has it all. Lovers of old-fashioned country will have a great time, and audiences that disdain country music will love this trio. A pre-1950s-inspired mix of Western swing, jazz and Hot Club styles, there’s never an inversion too far, a pattern too tricky nor a harmony unexplored as they take your every expectation and surpass it.
