About Hot Club of Cowtown
If you come on out to Bartlett Arboretum in Belle Plaine expecting to hear some Texas swing – you won’t be disappointed. But if you haven’t experienced the precision pandemonium that is Hot Club of Cowtown, you just might be blown away.
It all started with a 1994 ad in New York’s Village Voice: singer and sizzlin’ fiddler Elana James seeks band to play with. Whit Smith answered, and the two have been cookin’ with gas ever since. In the early 2000s, after moving to Austin, they solidified their sound and now with the addition of slap-bass virtuoso Zack Sapunor they’ve earned two fistfuls of awards and accolades over the years.
They’ve toured around the globe, including with a wide swath of fellow musical icons: Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Avett Brothers, Dan Hicks, to name a few.
