Hot Club of Cowtown

Friday, February 02, 2018, 7:30 pm

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. Lauded for its “down-home melodies and exuberant improvisation” (The Times, London), 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). The band’s musical alchemy has been described as “another breathless journey in the Texas tardis” (The Times, London), while American Songwriter 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 the Hot Club of Cowtown “a pretty much perfect country trio at the very top of their game,” and the New York Times, in a live review, described the trio as armed with “an arsenal full of technique and joy.”

Scarborough Fair The Guthrie Brothers

Wednesday, May 02, 2018, 7:30 pm

Since they were kids, Jock and Jeb Guthrie have been playing and singing together in one way or another. It started at their house in Green Bay, Wisconsin, sometime after the Packers’ golden years. In the early days their music motors were fueled by the music of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Santana, oldies, Motown, country and even swing and doo-wop.

Jock has always been the guitar master, and Jeb the drummer dude but, having a built-in teacher at arm’s length, Jeb began to play the guitar. The combination of two guitars, two vocals and two brothers was an idea whose time had come. After several band gigs in the ‘90s, they released their debut album in 1996 which has been re-released on all the major digital music distribution systems, e.g. iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, etc.

They knew the first time they played a Simon and Garfunkel song that their voices blended effortlessly into that S & G signature sound. The overwhelming audience reaction to their performances confirmed those feelings. Their journey continues as they take their message of harmony directly to the people in their shows and events.
