Hot Club of Cowtown
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 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), and “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.”
Along with the Hot Club’s dedicated cult following worldwide — they have toured for the U.S. State Department as musical ambassadors to Azerbaijan, Armenia, the Republic of Georgia and the Sultanate of Oman — certain titans of the industry have also taken notice. Bob Dylan, with whom the band toured and with whom James has toured and recorded, is a continuing inspiration. The Hot Club has opened several shows for Willie Nelson, toured with Nelson and Dylan during a summer-long stadium tour, and recently opened seven nights of Roxy Music’s sold-out “For Your Pleasure” U.K. stadium tour in early 2011. 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.
This year's winner of Best Western Swing Group at the 2015 Ameripolitan Music Awards!

A Simple Way to Help
As many of you have noticed, we have a lot going on here at Campanile. If you haven't made one of our performances featuring the world class entertainment that has graced our stage, you just don't know what you're missing! However, we need a little assistance in getting the word out to the rest of the folks. We have posters made to help publicize and inform the public about our upcoming events and we have a couple of outstanding and dedicated volunteers who distribute the posters in the immediate area. The problem we are having is getting the information to Manitowish Waters, Lac du Flambeau, Winchester, Presque Isle, Boulder Junction, Rhinelander and Eagle River. If you happen to work in one of these places and live here, or vice versa, or if you get there on a regular basis and would like to help to drop off the posters in appropriate locations in these towns, we would be most grateful. If you are able to lend a hand, please contact the office at 356-9700 and thank you in advance.
We would like to keep you informed of upcoming events and important updates. Your email address will be kept confidential and neither shared nor sold to any third parties.
