Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and earth-shattering live shows has become the band’s global brand. Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” by The Times, the Hot Club of Cowtown has always weaved a combination of seemingly disparate styles together to its own magical effect, setting up camp “at that crossroads where country meets Jazz and chases the blues away” according to The Independent and, in the words of The New York Times, “conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an oldfashioned good time”.
The Hot Club’s musical alchemy has been described as “Another breathless journey in the Texas tardis” by The Times, while American Songwriter shrewdly observed that “The excellent three players of this band could be doing anything but have chosen to honor the greats of jazz and swing with their sound.” The Belfast Telegraph calls them “a pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game,” while a live review last year in the New York Times described the trio as armed with “an arsenal full of technique and joy.”
