"After more than a decade of recording and performing, it’s well established that the three members of Hot Club of Cowtown are superb revivalists of hot jazz and Texas swing–thankfully, the trio has aspirations beyond that" ~ Relix

"Austin trio Hot Club of Cowtown sounds like it’s spent the last 40 years in tiny rural clubs" ~ The Onion

"Loosen your shirt collars, gentlemen. Ease off the coats, ladies. And, waiter, top off those sarsparillas. It’s time to enjoy yourselves…." ~ Sydney Herald

Fresh off their winter UK tour opening for Roxy Music, the Cooperstown Concert Series is pleased to put an exclamation point on our 2010/2011 season with Hot Club of Cowtown.

Since their first recording in 1998, Austin-based Hot Club of Cowtown have grown to be the most globe-trotting, hardest-swinging Western swing trio on the planet. The first American band to tour Azerbaijan, they have opened stadiums for such artists as Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson and continue to bring their brand of western swing to a wide range of festival audiences all over the world. But for guitarist Whit Smith, fiddler Elana James and bassist Jake Erwin, it has always been about staying true to their roots.

Remaining willfully out of the musical mainstream, Hot Club of Cowtown have created an international cult following for their sonic personification of joy and 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 His Texas Playboys.

Their latest record, "What Makes Bob Holler," pays tribute to the legendary music of Bob Wills, and has been critically acclaimed by the NY Times, LA Times, and The Guardian (UK).
