A new kind of Texas swing — hot jazz style!
Since their first recording in 1998, Austin-based Hot Club of Cowtown has grown to be the most globe-trotting, hardest-swinging trio on the planet, bringing their brand of Western swing to a wide range of festival audiences all over the world. These inductees into the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame make it a priority to stay true to their roots and the unique sound inspired by their namesakes, “Hot Club” from the hot jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli’s Hot Club of France, and “Cowtown” from the Western swing influence of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. They have played at the Lincoln Center, the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ol’ Opry and have toured with Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and Roxy Music.
