SCVTV Presents The OutWest Concert Series Hot Texas Swing BandClick here to enjoy a live radio interview with band leader and founder, Alex Dormont, on Campfire Cafe. 


With one boot in Cowboy music and the other in Swing, the HOT TEXAS SWING BAND is continuing the trail previously led by artists such as Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. Backed by a passion for traditional Western Swing, the Hot Texas Swing Band pushes the genre forward with fresh Rockabilly and Latin beats against original material for a new sound and high-energy live shows that have critics and fans raving.

About their new CD, "Ain't Dead Yet"
From the first track’s opening notes, I was aware of a different sound coming from this tight swing assemblage. …. Frequently when trumpet and saxophone elements are used in Western Swing, they don’t go for the big brass blare utilized by the 40s Big Bands….Here the Hot Texas Swing Band flouts it proudly and successfully.  They are also not afraid to stretch, as they do in bandleader Alex Dormont’s track called “Castle Walls.”  ….Some picks include the title track, “Back in My  Texas Home,” “Along the Navajo Trail,” “Bang, Bang,” and “You Don’t Know Me” but it’s all good, as the saying goes.  -----

WELCOME FALL! PUMPKIN SPICE, A GOOD BOOK, AND A COZY BLANKET

September 15, 2020

Days are warm yet cool nights and chilly mornings remind us FALL IS COMIN'. Fireplace lit, Pumpkin Spice is back and there's an autumn wreath on the front door. BLANKETS are calling me! What's your routine to "Greet The Day?" Sitting on the patio with my daily read, watching the birds at the feeders, hot beverage at my side, and a cozy blanket across my lap that's my "Good Morning World" routine!

With your comfort in mind, I've selected a few customers' favorites from OutWest Shop's HERO FOR HOME COLLECTION!  During the month of September 2020 when you make a purchase of any of these blankets, 20% is donated to support low power, community, non-profit radio station - KUPR - home of the OutWest Hour Radio Show. New blanket styles are added to this collection regularly.

Our vendor partner has everything in stock now - but winter's coming!

WILDFIRES SPREAD ACROSS THE WEST
WILDFIRES SPREAD ACROSS THE WEST

September 12, 2020

THE ALARMING PHOTOGRAPHS and videos of the wildfires burning in our western states are jaw-dropping and the stories accompanying them are heart-wrenching. In the summer of 1965 10,000 teen girls gathered in Farragut, Idaho for the Girl Scout Roundup, my sister-in-law and I among them. Besides camping, trading potlatches and attending joyous campfires, we planted trees, thousands of them, tiny evergreen seedlings. Today, 55 years later, are those trees still living, are they threatened? I searched online and discovered that fires are burning in that region. It isn't the first time.

OutWest Shop's Book Guides Wendy and Bobbi Jean hand selected four titles about fires in the West. Bobbi Jean, who always reads with a cup of coffee at the ready, suggests you try a bag of Muertos Coffee from a company founded by California firefighters. For each bag sold, they donate back to Individuals in Need, Line of Duty Deaths and Victims of Fire.
