Since its beginnings in the late 1990s, the Hot Club of Cowtown’s star has continued to rise as its reputation for jaw-dropping virtuosity and unforgettable live shows has become the band’s global brand.

The Hot Club has opened several shows for Willie Nelson, toured with Nelson and Bob Dylan during a summer-long stadium tour, and recently opened seven nights of Roxy Music’s sold-out For Your Pleasure UK stadium tour.

In the U.K. the Hot Club of Cowtown continues to tour extensively and has been featured at the Glastonbury Festival and has also been a returning guest on Later With Jools Holland, the Cambridge Folk Festival, and BBC Radio 2’s Radcliffe and Maconie and Bob Harris Country shows.

Lauded for its ‘down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation’ (THE TIMES), the Hot Club has always woven 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’ (THE INDEPENDENT), remaining ‘conscious always that above all else, the music is for dancing and an old-fashioned good time’ (NEW YORK TIMES).

‘A pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game’
THE BELFAST TELEGRAPH

‘It takes considerable bravery to name your band after one of the greatest jazz ensembles of the last century. Hot Club get away with it because they have spirit, originality and skill that would surely have impressed Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt back in 1930s.’
