About Hot Texas Swing Band
This marks the first Los Angeles-area appearance by the Austin, Texas-based six-member group, which carries the torch of 1930s Western Swing pioneer Bob Wills and his famous band, The Texas Playboys, and more contemporary Texas swing outfits from the Lone Star state, like Asleep at the Wheel.
The Hot Texas Swing Band’s hard-driving original material spices up that traditional Texas sound with rockabilly rhythms and Tex-Mex beats.
Singer/upright bassist Alex Dormont leads the band, which also features Cat Clemons (guitar), Selena Rosanbalm (vocals), Ileana Nina (fiddle), and Wes Starr (drums).
The band’s on tour this summer backing their third and latest album, “Ain’t Dead Yet,” now riding high in the Western Music Association’s Top 10 Western swing albums for the fourth consecutive quarter. Previous albums include “‘Bout Time” (2013) and “Hot Texas Swing Band” (2012).
